3w ago - Sony Game Director Mark Cerny confirmed alongside some new videos that Knack is out today for PS4 / PlayStation 4.
To quote: PlayStation 4 launches; you might say that "next gen" has officially become "current gen"! Game creators have been hard at work, and I think game players have a lot to look forward to.
One of the launch titles is of course Knack, the game that I and the internal Japan Studio have been hard at work on for the last three and a half years. I love character action games, and over the years I've helped create a number of them, including Crash Bandicoot on the original PlayStation, and Jak and Daxter and Ratchet & Clank on PS2.
Our goal on this project was to bring back that kind of classic gameplay, but with a next-gen twist. Knack has the ability to pick up pieces of the environment and grow larger, so over the course of a level he can grow from a three foot tall "mascot" type character to a thirty foot tall rampaging monster.
This is a kind of gameplay I'd never tried to create before, it gives a very unique feel from the game. We've also focused on the narrative that drives the action - there is a full CGI film worth of story embedded in the game.

3w ago - Housemarque Community Manager Tommaso De Benetti announced today that Resogun is out now on PS4 / PlayStation 4 with details below.
To quote: To celebrate the official release of RESOGUN and PS4 in North America, I am delighted to to share yet more details about the game, from the team at Housemarque, and of course, some more great explosions!
I know a lot of readers skip right ahead to the videos, but I am going to start with a piece of concept art, depicting a whole bunch of initial enemy designs.
A few of these may not have made the cut for the final game but most of them lie in wait for you to blast them to pieces.
Did I mention blasting? Ok, it's definitely time for some explosions then and the most epic RESOGUN video yet!
The best thing about RESOGUN of course is that the gameplay is just as epic as the explosions and so the last video I will share here today is all about the gameplay.

3w ago - Following up on the previous PS4 RLOD and PS4 Freezing & Overheating reports, today a new batch of PlayStation 4 bricking (such as THIS one) and failures has surfaced alongside a PS4 Launch Errors List and Fixes below.
To quote: Here's a list of issues plaguing the PlayStation 4 at launch, and how to fix them.
Astro A50s: Cannot Hear Other People Speaking
Everything appears to be hunky-dory with the Astro A50s, with the sound coming through the headphones just as you would expect, except for received chat audio. You can talk through the headset, but you can't hear others speaking.
A possible fix for this issue is to do the following:
1. Hold Home Button
2. Adjust Devices
3. Output to headphones -> All Audio
DualShock 4 R1 Button Sticking
There are several reports that units of the DualShock 4 appear to sport defective R1 buttons. After just a few hours of play, the R1 button seems to stick.
