Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone, I'm Scot Amos, executive producer at Crystal Dynamics. On January 28th of 2014, we're bringing the award-winning Tomb Raider experience to PS4 in the form of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
Recreating our franchise for PS4 was a true labor of love for the team. The critically acclaimed story and action adventure remain solidly intact and as riveting as ever. However, we took the opportunity to use the increased horsepower of the hardware to create the Tomb Raider we always envisioned.
We had a core team here at Crystal collaborating with the super talented teams at United Front Games (who worked with Square Enix on Sleeping Dogs) and Nixxes (whom Crystal has partnered with since the Legacy of Kain days). Together, we pulled the game apart and painstakingly rebuilt it with enhanced visual fidelity, realism, and a new immersive richness to the world.
Getting our gameplay up to native 1080p meant increasing all of our texture resolutions by over 4x so the details and nuances can be seen in their full glory.
However, it's subtleties like our subsurface scattering technology - how we...

Since we introduced PlayStation 4 earlier this year, feedback from the gaming community has been phenomenal. With media reviews saying that the PS4 is "just shy of perfection" and that it is "an impressive package for gamers," it's clear that PS4′s horsepower, deep social capabilities, network features, and amazing gameplay have struck a chord.

6w ago - Compulsion Games Community and PR Manager Sam Abbott shared details today on the dark inspirations of Contrast on PS4.
To quote: Why hello there, Playstation.Blog readers. We hope you're sitting comfortably. If you're not, please do - grab yourself a tumbler, take a load off.
Tonight, we're taking you way back to the 1920′s, to a time where jazz was king and the world was getting back on its feet after a devastating war. It was a world of class, depression, and the working stiff. A time where suits weren't just what you wore to a job interview, and evening dresses fit women like gloves.
Welcome, to Contrast. I want to ask you a quick question before we start: when you were a kid, did you ever wish you could become your shadow?

Didi lives alone with her mother, Kat - a cabaret singer at the biggest show in town. Her father abandoned the family a little while back, which left them in real trouble.
In Contrast, you play an imaginary friend, Dawn. We were inspired by Pan's Labyrinth, where the main character is a little girl who invents an imaginary friend...
