Once finished, this finely-tuned version of the bestselling Diablo III will transport PlayStation gamers to a dark and dangerous world of fast-paced action, thrilling adventure, and piles upon piles of epic loot.

3d ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton is here with a video showcasing Watch_Dogs which goes behind the scenes with 2013's rule-breaking action epic below.
To quote: As with any jump from one console generation to the next, PlayStation 4 owners will expect to see hardware that sits at the very cutting edge of innovation, offering unparalleled processing power and an arsenal of exciting new features.
However, the onus on game developers to bring bold new gameplay innovation to the table is every bit as integral to that generational leap, and it's a responsibility that the whipsmart team behind Ubisoft's future-tech open world action title Watch_Dogs are really tearing into.
As detailed in our coverage last week, the game's core conceit - that its central hero, hacker Aiden Pearce's primary weapon is not a gun, but an entire city - is one of the boldest, most ambitious ideas to come along in some time. To find out more about the game's attempts to re-write the action rulebook, PlayStation Blog sat down with the game's creative director Jonathan Morin...
What was the first seed of the idea that later grew into Watch_Dogs?
Jonathan Morin: It started as a conversation. Four years ago we were talking about humans exchanging their lives and their...
1w ago - Earlier today a purported PlayStation 4 / PS4 E3 2013 trailer went viral on YouTube, and has since been confirmed as a fake by Sony.
Below are the details via Kotaku (linked above) alongside the PlayStation 4 / PS4 trailer for those who missed it:
That Cool 'PS4 Teaser' Is A Fake, Sony Says - Whoever made this clip wants you to believe it’s the first look at the PlayStation 4 hardware. But, Sony tells me it's a fake. Too bad.
Nevertheless, I wouldn't blame someone just wandering over onto the Internet for guessing it wasn't. Let's consider the footage, shall we? Sure, E3 is right around the corner and the super-slick 44-second video seems like it might be the work of a professional creative shop.
The facial reaction shots are intercut with looks at an already-announced PS4 game - Infamous: Second Son, in case it's not clear - and hardware but the images and video in those segments are readily available all over the Web. And the supposed hardware could be one of the many fan-made renders that are jostling for attention on the Internet.
Granted, this could be the work of MOFILM, the firm that Sony recently hired to handle crowd-sourced advertising. As good as it looks, it almost certainly be the work of a dedicated fan looking to capitalize on the excitement leading...
1w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared details today on Watch_Dogs for PS4 and PS3 detailing the the future-tech action epic below.
To quote: Watch_Dogs's dark vision of technological totalitarianism is heading to PS3 and PS4, and we were lucky enough to see the first live gameplay demo in San Francisco earlier this week (played on a DualShock 4, no less!). We've carefully studied the footage, asked pressing questions, and present you with this breakdown.
1. Aiden Pierce isn't your typical videogame protagonist
"Aiden is a man with a dark past who has made questionable choices," Lead Story Designer Kevin Shortt explained in our first live gameplay demo.Growing up in Chicago, Aiden used his technical prowess to infiltrate bank accounts and access surveillance systems, becoming something of a vigilante. Naturally, these pursuits earned him some powerful enemies on both sides of the law.
As you play Watch_Dogs, you won't be choosing between stark extremes on some binary morality scale, but defining where Aiden resides on much murkier spectrum of acceptability.
2. Chicago isn't your typical videogame city
We've all played open-world action games where cities feel more like a collection of giant painted boxes than a...
