Sony Announces Surgeon Simulator PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4

50°
6w ago - Sony Community Manager Poppy Byron announced today that Surgeon Simulator Coming PS4 is coming to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: When we first heard that the new generation consoles were arriving, we were super excited about the possibility that the game - OUR game - could be one of the titles available for PS4 owners to enjoy.

There was one problem, though: how on Earth were we going to get the infamous controls to work on DualShock4?

Would the game look good on a next-gen console in a living room?

Would it still be funny? Would Bob be as dashingly handsome on a big screen?

So many questions... we had to try. It turned out that creating a control scheme for Nigel's arm on PS4 was one of the most enjoyable parts of the process.

The first and most obvious step to take was to map hand movement and hand rotation to the left and right thumb sticks, as this is what players tend to expect on a console game. The finger controls were less obvious.

We had a lot of ideas which turned out to be a bit too clumsy even for Surgeon Simulator. In the end we decided to lose the one-button-per-finger design used on the PC and instead condense it down into just two of the shoulder buttons.

6w ago - Today Sony Senior Product Manager Adam Grant officially introduced their new micro console PlayStation TV to Europe, which allows gamers to stream the PS4 to other rooms in their house.

To quote: Introducing PlayStation TV - A new micro console available later this year for 99.

At E3 today we introduced PlayStation TV, an entertainment system that extends the capabilities of PlayStation 4 allowing players to stream their PS4 games to any TV in their house.

We believe PS TV makes the ideal companion to PS4, enhancing the user experience and connectivity of the console and providing a second gaming station for an attractive price - PS TV will be available this year in Europe and across the PAL region for 99 (RRP).

Released in Japan and Asian last November as PlayStation Vita TV, the system has since continuously evolved through software updates and content enhancements. Adopting the same chip sets and system software as the PlayStation Vita, PS TV has a 6.5cm 10.5cm ultra slim size - the smallest of any PlayStation platform that connects to a TV.

In response to the demands from users in Europe and the PAL region, SCEE will introduce the system under a new name and colour, and will deliver entertainment experiences only possible on PS TV.

Below are all the details, to quote: We firmly believe that the best game development ideas can come from anywhere and anyone, and as the brand that stands for gamers, we want to make it easy for gamers to step outside of their comfort zones and experience these new types of games.

Tonight at our E3 Press Conference, we announced more good news for gamers: with the help of our amazing Worldwide Studios team and third-party partners, PlayStation is introducing a robust catalogue of Free-to-Play (F2P) games with a goal of offering more ways for gamers to discover and connect with a larger variety of titles and experiences.
