4h ago - Today Brian Fleming of Sucker Punch Productions announced that their InFamous Second Son PS4 patch will be out tomorrow alongside a PlayStation 4 video trailer below.

To quote: I have some good news for you. We've made great progress on the inFAMOUS Second Son patch on PS4 I promised you a couple weeks back. In fact, we expect to publish it on PSN tomorrow, April 17th.

Now first, let me update you on the specifics I promised, and then toss in a few extra goodies that we managed to squeeze in when nobody was looking. First - addressing one of the top two requests we've gotten - you'll be able to disable the HUD, and once you've finished the game you'll be able to adjust the time of day as you like.

We also promised, and have included, an option to cap the game frame rate at 30 FPS if you prefer playing this way. To set expectations for you all: this is a frame rate cap - not a lock. It won't eliminate the rare instance of a dropped frame during gameplay.





But that's all stuff you expected. Let's talk about a few surprises, saving the best for last:

• A handful of localization text changes, and a couple of fixes for rare crashes in the game (Thanks to all of you who uploaded reports on those,...

4h ago - Sony Content Manager Ed Casey shared a video today announcing that Trials Fusion is now available on PlayStation 4 with a new PS4 trailer below!

To quote: The wait is over! After months of teases, previews, trailers, and more, it's finally time to strap on your helmet, straddle your bike, and smash face first into the ground at incredibly high speed.

That's right; it's time for Trials Fusion.

Get ready to push yourself, your skill, and your patience to the limit on grueling platform racing courses designed to drive you mad. But it's not just a race! Flash some style with the all-new FMX Trick system and rack up high scores on special FMX trick tracks full of big air and bigger crashes.

"But Trials Fusion guys, I don't even LIKE motorcycles," you plead. Well that's utterly ridiculous, but don't sweat it because we have you covered. Trials Fusion comes complete with alternate modes of transportation for all your vehicular mayhem needs. We've got ATVs and BMX bikes just waiting to be taken for a spin.





And what's the best part of Trials Fusion's unique brand of physics-based platform racing? Why, being better than everyone else of course. Trials Fusion comes fully stocked with ways to dominate...

Video: Atlus Announces Conception II is Out Today on PS Vita

50°
1d ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin announced that Conception II is out today on PS Vita with a fresh PlayStation Vita video trailer below.

To quote: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is out today for PS Vita, and you know what that means? It's time to start classmating!

Conception II is a dungeon crawler/social-sim hybrid where you're put into the role of "God's Gift" - a teenager bestowed with unprecedented amounts of power from the Star God. As a disciple, you're tasked with saving the world of Aterra by pairing up with one of the game's seven heroines and clearing out infestations of monsters.

Of course, to do that, you'll need your army of Star Children - magical beings that fight for you in battle. You make these Star Children through a magical ritual with the heroines, and you can bring up to nine Star Children with you into battle.

There's 30 classes of Star Children to choose from, and the stats of the heroine, the heroine's mood (You gotta be nice to them!), and other rare items affect what classes are available to you, so spend your time wisely.

Oh - and be sure to turn on your ad-hoc networks; you can actually classmate with another player's heroines or even the other players themselves in a process called "classmanting" (Yeah, that's a thing).
