4w ago - Following up on the How to Swap In / Upgrade a PS4 HDD guide, today it has been confirmed that the recently released Seagate Spinpoint M9T (measuring just 9.5 mm thick) 2TB HDD is small enough to fit in a PlayStation 4 console.
To quote: Seagate recently released a new 2TB HDD, only that this time its the smallest 2TB HDD currently in existence. Its small enough to fit a PS4 console and and a laptop.
The drive is manufactured in China under the company's Samsung hard disk drive (HDD) division, reportedly sporting the highest platter density of any 2.5 inch hard drive to date, with 667 GB of capacity per platter.
"The M9T combines the highest areal density shipping in a single storage device with an innovative design that fits into mainstream notebook applications. While other 2TB solutions on the market are 15 mm thick, the vast majority of mobile devices are designed to use a 9.5 mm drive; with the M9T, those devices can now have 2TB of storage, enabling a richer computing experience," said Dave Frankovich,...
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?
Contrast is... unique. Set in a film noir inspired "dreamscape," the world of Contrast is centered around a little girl named Didi. 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...
8w ago - Spry Fox Chief Creative Officer Daniel Cook shared details today on how unexpected life events inspired Road Not Taken on PS Vita and PS4.
To quote: There is a repeated theme in our upcoming game, Road Not Taken, which we announced here back in August. The characters in our little northern town have all lived their lives according to the same plan: first you go to school, then you get a job, then you fall in love and finally you start a family.
But life doesn't always work out that way.
I grew up expecting to live a very traditional Norman Rockwell-style life. We had a little house on a lovely winding road in rural Maine. I did well in school; checked all the official checkboxes. Then upon entering the real world, things fell apart.
On the job front, I've been through multiple careers. My "safe" job at a large stable employer - the sort of job many people dream about - well, that was an incredibly bad fit for me.
I've joined sketchy start-ups that failed. And some that succeeded. I've been fired for idly drawing pictures of planes inserted into bums. I've been hired at double the salary because (as I learned later) I wore the right type of hat to the interview.
I live in a tiny condo in a big city, not a house in the suburbs. There...
8w ago - Mercenary Technology Executive Producer Bill Chinn announced that The Amazing Spider-Man is swinging to PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Look out! With New York Comic Con just around the corner, I'm swinging by to let you know more about the upcoming PS Vita release of The Amazing Spider-Man from Activision, a hand-held version of the original PS3 title.
For those of you new to the series, The Amazing Spider-Man takes place after the events of the movie and features a new, original story. It mixes all-out, freeform brawls and stealth-based, stalk-and-strike challenges with a fast-paced momentum that puts Spidey front and center in the action.
If you caught the game when it first launched on PS3, you already know The Amazing Spider-Man gives you free roam and free reign over the isle of Manhattan, a bustling and beautiful open world teeming with sights to see, citizens to aid and colossal bosses to rip down.
The PS Vita release of The Amazing Spider-Man is a virtual playground in your pocket, maintaining that same spirit of the console edition while adding new energy through Vita's special features. Tying it all together is the...
