Project Morpheus: Experiencing PS4's Virtual Reality Prototype

200°
19w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman detailed Project Morpheus today, sharing his experiences with PS4's Virtual Reality Prototype.

Below are all the details, to quote: Project Morpheus is PlayStation's prototype virtual reality system for PS4, announced earlier this week at GDC.

Despite its pre-release status, Morpheus is a sleek, eye-catching piece of hardware that feels surprisingly comfy once strapped to your cranium.

This is partly due to a clever design that distributes most of the unit's weight to the top of your head, not the bridge of your nose or other delicate pressure points.

Properly seated, the unit sits snugly over your eyes but rests comfortably on your face. You peer through two separate lenses, which resolves into one immersive, high definition image that provides a convincing sense of depth.

I tried out two demos: EVE Valkyrie, a fast-paced arcade-style dogfighting simulation set in outer space, and The Deep, a face-to-face encounter with a prowling great white shark. Each of these demos was radically different, expressing radically different approaches to virtual reality gaming.

Of the two demos, EVE Valkyrie's...

250°
54w ago - Developer Brian Provinciano announced today that their Retro City Rampage update adds Retro+ Mode and a Prototype Version with details below.

To quote: A new Retro City Rampage update has just dropped, which takes things both forward and backward! To celebrate the update, Retro City Rampage is on sale for $4.99.

Not only that, but it's Cross Buy, so this means you're getting both the PS3 and PS Vita versions together for only $2.50 each!

RETRO+ Enhanced Graphics Mode

The "RETRO+" Enhanced Graphics Mode gives RCR a neo-retro boost with dynamic shadows, doubling the colors on screen. The shadows and increased contrast help sprites pop like never before. For purists, the original 8-bit mode is still there in all its glory, but if you're ready for a slight retro remix, RETRO+ is a great new way to enjoy the game.

Prototype Version

"ROM" City Rampage, an 8-bit hardware-accurate prototype has also been added. Drive around Theftropolis with the strict limitations of 1980s hardware, sprite flicker and all.

Compare side by side how closely Retro City Rampage adheres to classic hardware and where it strays, and see what really was possible in 1989. See what actually could've been released on cartridge, had...

Video: New Gran Turismo 5 PS3 DLC - Corvette C7 Test Prototype

200°
87w ago - Sony Associate Product Manager Ken Chan has posted up a video today introducing the new Gran Turismo 5 PS3 DLC, specifically the Corvette C7 Test Prototype below!

To quote: For weeks now, members of GTplanet have been speculating about the mysterious discovery of a camouflaged Corvette C7 appearing on the game's screen saver session.

Well the rumors are true - officially announced today at the LA Auto Show, Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital have been working very closely for months in developing an exclusive first-hand driving experience by offering a camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype in Gran Turismo 5. The DLC is now available for free through the PlayStation Store.

With spy photos valued at an estimated $100,000, Chevrolet has gone to extreme measures to disguise the test car. In fact, a designated Corvette design team was tasked with developing custom camouflage to conceal the new design elements.





The concealed test prototype continues to undergo extensive performance and durability testing in preparation for final production. Millions of hours will be accumulated through thousands of rigorous performance trials before the car is released later in 2013.

Until now, only a handful...

120w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has made available a video preview today of this month's Qore, which showcases Sorcery, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier and Prototype 2 below.

To quote: This month's episode features one of the most anticipated PlayStation Move titles, previews of two popular sequels, and a retrospective look at the series.

Jesse Blaze Snider wields a wand (aided by the Move controller) in Sorcery. As a young wizard's apprentice, players easily learn how the wand enables magical game play in a mystical world. Summon fire, ice and magical bolt spells to take down huge ice trolls and evil monsters in this comprehensive preview!

Looks like the next step in modern warfare game play is coming from Ubisoft's latest installment of the popular futuristic shooter Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The Qore preview 'de-cloaks' the very cool stealth technology and almost infinite combinations of weapons that players can assemble.
