PS4 Firmware 2.0 Masamune Screens Show Yellow and Pink Dashboard

700°
13w ago - Following up on the recent PS4 Firmware 2.0 Masamune news, today Sony released as few more Masamune screens detailing how the PlayStation 4 dashboard looks in yellow and pink below.

To quote: "The PS4 firmware update 2.0 "Masamune" will allow you to paint your dashboard in seven different colors on top of the classic blue, and Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia gave us two examples as part of a press release. Yellow and pink (below).

It's interesting to see that the system tiles will remain blue, even if a slight transparency (which you wouldn't easily notice with the default blue color) will tint them with a slight hue from the background color.

The colors available will be blue, yellow, dark blue, red, teal, lavender, pink and dark grey. It's worth mentioning that those aren't official names, which haven't been disclosed yet.

Update 2.0 will be released on Tuesday, and then we'll probably learn what the blue dot near the online friends count means, as it still hasn't been announced.

Personally, I already know dark grey will be my choice. What about you?"

To quote: PS4 1.76 Webkit Exploit

Developers nas and proxima have extended the recently released Vita Webkit exploit, and made it compatible with the latest PS4 firmware, firwmare 1.76. (Update: Proxima actually clarified that although this is the same webkit exploit, it was developed in parallel to the Vita exploit, and not "based" on it)

Their proof of concept code provides several samples, including a module dumper and some tool to create more advanced ROP code.

I am not close to my PS4 right now and cannot confirm if the Proof of Concept actually works, but the code looks perfectly legit, the devs behind this have a great track of record, and it should be a matter...
 

Video Interview: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions on PS4 and PS3

300°
13w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared a video interview today announcing Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is coming to PS4 and PS3 platforms.

To quote: The storied Geometry Wars series is set to make its long-awaited return (and its PlayStation debut) this fall as Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, being released under the reawakened Sierra brand.

It's not easy to live up to the Geometry Wars pedigree, but a recent hands-on run of one of the game's earlier stages was all the assurance I needed that the spirit of Geometry Wars is thriving, guided by the neon, wireframe hands of Lucid Games: a studio founded by former Bizarre Creations staffers.





"Geometry Wars" has never been more apt as a title, featuring three-dimensional geometric battlefields that bend and flex under the force of your shape-shattering armaments. The level I played was shaped like a peanut: two spheres connected by a flared, narrow bridge.

Fans of Geometry Wars 1 and 2 may find themselves instinctively looking for corners to lead errant enemies into to set up high-scoring opportunities, but the continuous nature of Dimensions' playfields means veterans will need to readjust their habits accordingly.

To quote: "Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia shared quite a lot of information on the features coming with firmware 2.0 "Masamune," but quite a few more caveats have been mentioned on the [Register or Login to view links] site.

The Share Play feature, which is built into the party chat app, will also follow the rules below:

  • You can be in a Party with 8 people, but Share Play can be done only with one of them at the same time. The rest of the Party won't be able to see the screen, but will still be able to chat with host and guest.
  • When the host is visualizing any other screen than the game being shared, the guest is shown a "stand by" screen.
  • The Share Play time is limited to one hour, and the remaining time is visualized in the Party screen, but you can start a new...

 

Freedom Wars Out Tuesday, Characters & Panopticons Detailed

250°
14w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino detailed both the characters panopticons in Freedom Wars today, which comes out for PS Vita this Tuesday.

To quote: Hello again Freedom Wars fans! With less than a week to go until Freedom Wars finally hits North America, I wanted to deliver a few more details regarding our awesome cast of characters and Western Panopticons to our English-speaking "Sinners" out there.

As you've seen through our various trailers, even throughout the multitude of cooperative and competitive modes, the story of Freedom Wars takes center stage. While contributing to society and steadily decreasing that million-year sentence, you'll encounter a myriad of interesting, (and might I add stylish) characters, starting with:

Aries
A mysterious girl who appears in front of our main character from time to time. Her prophetic-sounding words seem to be leading you down a certain path, but her true motives remain a mystery...

Natalia "9" Woo
The tough-as-nails Commander of The Office of Peace and Stability, 35th division. Natalia is tasked with protecting the peace in her Panopticon and keeping the Sinners in line. She might seem cold at first glance, but Natalia's rigid demeanor masks her deep-seated wish to protect her teammates.
