7w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino shared a video today which offers a deeper look at the PS4 world of Knack on PlayStation 4.
To quote: Hello, everyone. We're coming to the final stretch before the launch of PS4, as well as Knack, a game I've been honored to be a part of. It has been great working with the very talented folks at Japan Studio, not to mention Mark Cerny, a true living legend.
Our goal with Knack was to deliver a different kind of experience for PlayStation fans at launch, outside of the realm of gritty shooters and mature action games.
Knack harkens back to the golden days of Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter, when controls were simpler, but challenges were large enough that those control schemes had to be mastered by anyone intending to finish the games. So, who better to create a game like that than one of the creative forces that brought Crash and Jak to life, Mark Cerny himself?
Knack has a lot to offer, so I'm excited to be able to share some new details on the story, and some of the cool transformations that Knack takes on during the game.
The story, of course, revolves around Knack, mankind's secret weapon against the goblin...
7w ago - Sony Associate Product Marketing Manager Cristian Cardona of Software Marketing revealed the PS4 Limited and Collector's Editions for InFamous Second Son today.
To quote: The PS4 launch is right around the corner, which means plenty of fantastic, next-gen games to check out on November 15th! But today, we're here to update you on inFAMOUS Second Son.
Sucker Punch Productions has devoted tremendous effort to it so far, and we've been working with them to reward gamers who pre-order with not only the exclusive vests we announced, but also an upgraded, limited edition that gives you a unique foil cover, as well as Cole's Legacy DLC.
Behold! The inFAMOUS Second Son Limited Edition for only $59.99! Like the title says, it's limited, so if you're interested, don't forget to pre-order. This item won't be available after launch.
Don't worry if you've already pre-ordered, by the way. You'll automatically be upgraded to the Limited Edition!
But what's this Cole's Legacy DLC we mentioned? For one, it won't be available for purchase when inFAMOUS Second Son launches. It's only available through these offers here.
It's additional downloadable content you'll be able to play that uncovers what happened between the devastating events of Infamous 2 and inFAMOUS...
8w ago - Creative Director Nathan Gary of External Development at Santa Monica Studio announced today alongside a video trailer that Flower, flOw, Sound Shapes and Escape Plan are coming to PS4.
To quote: Hey, this is Nathan Gary over at Sony Santa Monica with some great news for PlayStation fans. For years, the team here at Santa Monica Studio has been pushing the boundaries of gaming with small, innovative games.
Now, some of our best titles are making the jump to new PlayStation platforms - including PS4.
As you may have heard, thatgamecompany's Flower is coming to PS Vita. Today I am happy to officially announce that it is also coming to PS4 and that both versions will launch on November 15th. Now this beautiful, meditative game can be experienced at 1080p and 60fps.
I'm also excited to tell you that Sound Shapes, the ground-breaking musical platformer from Queasy Games, will also be joining Flower in the PS4 launch line-up on November 15th.
Flower isn't the only thatgamecompany title making its way to new places. We are also bringing flOw to PS Vita and PS4. This is the first game TGC released - the one that started it all. It will release for both PS4 and PS Vita on November 29th.
8w ago - Now that you can pre-order PlayStation 4 titles such as Knack and Warframe on Sony's PSN Store, they have adapted a new PS4 digital DRM (Digital Rights Management) policy as detailed below.
To quote: "With the PlayStation Store, you can download your games to two systems. However, playing those games is a different story. When you're on your primary system, the one you use all the time, you can play as you normally would.
But to play on another system, the owner of the game must be signed into his or her PSN account. So for instance if I go to a friend's house and want to play Knack, I need to stay signed into my PSN account in order for us to continue playing. If I am on my PS4, I can play it without signing in.
This is different from the current digital DRM practice with the PS3 where you can download on up to two systems, but don't need to be signed in with the purchasing account to play said game.
The PlayStation 4 will be available in the US on November 15th and Europe on November 29th."
