Videos: PlayStation Turns 20, PS4 20th Anniversary Edition Revealed

550°
3w ago - SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida announced today alongside their 20th Anniversary PSN Discounts that PlayStation officially turns 20 today, with a PS4 20th Anniversary Edition reveal and videos below!

To quote: Hello readers! Today is a very special moment in our history. It's been 20 years since the launch of the original PlayStation, which released in Japan on December 3rd, 1994. It seems like only yesterday! I'm so glad that we can celebrate this moment together.

20 years is a long time! In 1994, many outsiders thought that Sony was slightly crazy to launch the original PlayStation into an incredibly competitive gaming market. Who could blame them? Sony was (and is!) famous for engineering great electronics, audio equipment, and many other consumer devices. But game consoles?!

Sony Computer Entertainment, founded by my mentor Ken Kutaragi, was a project borne out of sincere passion and deep admiration for the craft of game development.





The mid 90s were an exciting time for game developers, driven by the explosion of powerful but affordable 3D graphics rendering...

4w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino announced today that Knack Turns one on PS4, complete with Easter eggs and an ultra-rare statue detailed below!

To quote: Hello again, PlayStation nation! It's hard to believe that just a little over one year ago many of you embarked on a grand journey with one of PlayStation's newest heroes, Knack.

As a producer, it's been my pleasure to hear so many heartwarming stories of fans playing together with their families and friends, searching for special relics and tackling the larger than life story within PS4's first exciting year. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support.

To celebrate Knack's 1st birthday, I'd like to share a little-known easter egg with all of you Knack fans, as well as tease a special opportunity for those of you who make your way to PlayStation Experience in December.

Close observers of Knack's stages might have recognized a few familiar shapes hidden within the walls and scenery. Take this screenshot from stage 1-2 for example:

Notice the small Knack shape hidden on the left pillar? That's what we call a "Hidden Knack"!

Inspired by the "Hidden Mickeys" that keen observers can spot at Disney parks, the team at Japan Studio placed over 45 Hidden Knacks throughout the...

FEZ Turns Heads on PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita on March 25th

42w ago - Polytron Producer Marie-Christine Bourdua announced today that FEZ turns heads on PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita on March 25th, 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: This is it. We've come to the end of development, and Fez is finally coming to PlayStation on March 25th!

It's been an incredible adventure, and we couldn't have made it without the amazing work of [Register or Login to view links] and the support of Sony's team. In the name of all of us at Polytron, thank you so much!

People have been asking for a PS3 version of Fez since day one, and we believe it was worth the wait. Blit took the time to make a solid C++ port of the game, which runs smoothly at native resolution on PS Vita, and 720p at 60 frames per second on PS3.

The PS4 version is what we consider to be the best-looking and smoothest Fez experience you can get on a TV set, running at beautiful 1080p (and yes, 60fps too). You wouldn't think that upping the resolution would make a big difference in a game like ours, where the pixels are the size of Gomez's fist... but it really does look even crisper and blockier - in a good way.

No one's going to blame you for digging around, but you won't find many big changes in these versions of the game. However, there are a few surprises... especially...
