For instance, one of the ironic differences I€ve experienced going from a very big game studio to a very small one is that things can often move a lot faster when there aren€t too many people around to say €no.€

This simple fact is core to our creative process at Supergiant. We like quickly coming up with, and trying, new ideas all through development. If you can loop through that kind of process quickly enough, it can start to produce great results, while the many inevitable failed experiments are easy to move on from, having taught you something.

In order to learn more about Thief's stealth systems, storytelling, and PS4 benefits, we turned to Producer Stephane Roy. He shared some incredible insight into Thief€s design process, and even sheds new light on how DualShock 4 will empower PS4 thieves.

So let's see what Garrett's gotten himself into this time...

PlayStation.Blog: While developing for both PS3 and PS4, do you have any predictions for what's possible on PS4 that isn't possible on PS3?

50w ago - Following up on his previous update, today PlayStation 3 hacker SKFU has now shared a few more details on PSNSSS codenames below for PlayStation 4 (PS4) / Orbis stores.

To quote: PSNSSS - Codenames

PSNSSS development continues. Since not all products can be found via a simple search, because some have a flag which forbid to be found this way; I implemented a browsing function.

While browsing the now 522 different stores I noticed a few codenames multiple times:

  • CHIHIRO

It is still unknown what they mean, but based on the information gathered until now it seems those are codenames for upcoming SONY platforms.

I hope to be able to improve the app further to get more details on this matter.
