4w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill is here with a hands-on look at Diablo III (and Reaper of Souls) on PlayStation 4 below!
To quote: I'm here in Anaheim for Blizzcon 2013, and as anyone who knows me might have guessed, the first thing I did when I got here was make a beeline for the Diablo III booth to get some hands-on time with its in-development PS4 version.
Let's get the obvious stuff out of the way first: Diablo III looks good on PS4. The demo I played didn't stutter or hitch once - the PS4 version runs at 1080p and 60FPS or better throughout, as confirmed by Production Director John Hight when I spoke with him on the show floor.
Everything looks tack-sharp, and plenty of extra bits have been added or tweaked in Diablo III's PS4 version. Just wait 'til you see the glow of a freshly dropped health globe reflected in a pool of stagnant water.
Diablo III's DualShock 4 controls are still being tweaked and perfected, but the touchpad implementation today was largely gesture-based, swiping left and right to switch to different inventory and skill subsections. It's pretty hard to improve on the perfection of Diablo III's radial menus as they are on PS3, but DualShock 4′s touchpad makes for a suitable change of...
In our action-packed single-player and same-screen co-op demos, players will explore the haunted streets of Westmarch as one of our five original classes, or test their mettle as the unyielding Crusader.
Attendees of the convention will also be some of the first in the world to take on Death itself using DualShock 4, armed with all-new social features and touchpad technology designed to help keep heroes on focused on what they do best: killing monsters.

70w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has confirmed that the Mass Effect 3: Leviathan PS3 DLC expansion Reaper Mythology is incoming this summer.
To quote: "Shepard's story came to a close at the end of the game," BioWare Producer Mike Gamble told the crowd at EA's Summer Showcase last week.
"But there are more stories we want to tell in the Mass Effect universe." Leviathan is Mass Effect 3's first story-focused DLC, and in addition to introducing new characters, weapons, and combat challenges it promises to expand on what we know (and what we don't) about the most feared beings in the universe - the Reapers.
Set during ME3's harrowing Reaper invasion, the expansion tasks Commander Shepard with tracking down an elusive entity that, according to legend, may wield the power to defeat a Reaper.
Trouble is, nobody's actually seen it. The story begins with an email directing you to the Citadel labs and one Dr. Bryson, director of the elite Task Force Aurora research group that investigates long-shot methods for halting the Reapers.
The Protheans, it seems, were the first to suspect the Leviathan's existence after they discovered a Reaper corpse centuries ago. This all bodes well for Shepard's quest, but just as Bryson begins to pass along the key information,...
