Sony Goes Hands-on with MLB 14 The Show on PS4 / PlayStation 4

50°
16w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with MLB 14 The Show PS4 on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Big and small. Those two words best describe the visual improvements San Diego Studio has implemented in MLB 14 The Show on PS4. From the detailed stitching and fabric of a glove to the 4x texture resolution of entire stadiums, the team has pushed itself - and PS4 - to create an unrivaled experience in baseball.

The PS4 version of MLB 14 The Show boasts plenty of obvious enhancements over its feature-rich, PS3 counterpart. Players look better even at a glance, with uniforms and helmets that wrinkle and flash under the grace of a new lighting model.

While stadium crowds in the PS3 version were made up of about 40 different models, the PS4 version hosts 1,000 individual models in varying clothing and gear - and each model has approximately the same number of polygons as the actual players did on PS3.

The list goes on. Individual blades of grass provide a subtle accent against a player's shoe. Stubble grows on his cheek. These details, big and small, push the PS4 version ever closer to visual parity with a game broadcast on television.

For those that haven't played the PS3 version yet, MLB 14 The Show brings a litany of new features...

17w ago - Today GamePointsNow (linked above) has detailed the Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) game installation sizes primarily intended for those who haven't upgraded their stock 500GB PS4 hard drive.

To quote: PlayStation 4 (PS4) Game Installation Sizes

With the release of the next generation consoles it’s clear that Sony has one eye on a purely digital future with day and date digital releases and of course it’s excellent PS+ offerings.

But with only a 500GB hard drive included in the PS4 console and mandatory installs for every title (and 92GB reserved for the OS), just how long is it going to take before you have to switch it out for a bigger drive? We at GamePointsNow have produced a reference guide for all PS4 releases to date*

Game Title / Publisher / Game Size

Sony Details First 2 Hours of Child of Light PS4 on PlayStation 4

100°
17w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements detailed the first two hours of Child of Light PS4 on PlayStation 4 below today.

To quote: Before a crumbling statue in a dark wood, Aurora faces her first enemy in Child of Light. As it screeches in the little girls' direction, she hefts her oversized sword into the air with supreme confidence.

She's unfazed by its arachnid frame and menacing gait. This encounter depicts Child of Light in its purest form: unflinching, beautiful, and defiant of expectations. It's a PS3 and PS4 RPG that celebrates the RPG tradition while striking out on a new path, wholly its own.

When I first wrote about Child of Light last year, Aurora had already embarked on her adventure through the enchanting world of Lemuria.

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to play the opening two hours, uninterrupted. The result: an unassailable emotional connection to Aurora and her quest. The team at Ubisoft Montreal has crafted a heart-rending story, steeped in detail and welcoming to young gamers as well as old.

Aurora's arrival in Lemuria is immediately tragic. Daughter to an Austrian duke, the young girl falls ill and wakes in...

19w ago - Today at GDC 2014 Sony's Shane Bettenhausen of Developer Relations announced that new PS4 Tools and Middleware are coming to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Happy GDC! Today we're announcing that we will continue to strengthen our support for the global independent developer community by introducing more tools and middleware solutions for PS4.

SCE has entered into strategic partnerships to bring new native solutions from popular middleware vendors GameMaker: Studio and MonoGame to PS4, further expanding an already robust set of development tools.

We're also announcing that fully integrated solutions for Unity are now available for PS3 and PS Vita, with the highly anticipated early access version for PS4 coming in April 2014.

Unity, GameMaker: Studio and MonoGame represent the most popular game development tools leveraged by universities and independent developers alike, and are used for both prototyping and full-scale game development.

Jointly developed by SCE and YoYo Games, a GameMaker: Studio-native solution for PS4 is now available free for all SCE-licensed developers, making it even easier for developers to bring their 2D games to the more than 6 million global PS4 owners.

Developers of beloved games like Hyper Light Drifter...
