5w ago - Sony PlayStation Brand Marketing Senior Vice President Guy Longworth cordially invites PlayStation 4 gamers to a little bit of friendly PS4 competition today.

To quote: It is hard to believe that it has been nearly a year since [Register or Login to view links] arrived in stores.

Since then, we've seen the incredible passion of the PlayStation Nation, and plenty of new converts too, rise up in support of the connected social experience at the heart of the new console. To date, millions of screenshots and videos have been shared around the world, but perhaps the most important thing to be shared is the amazing experience that friends get when they play together.

There's something special about grabbing your PS4 controller, sitting down with a friend, and starting up a game. Whether side-by-side on the couch or online, there's nothing quite like getting ready for some real competitive or cooperative gaming.

Here at PlayStation we know that feeling very well, and always enjoy the chance to talk strategy with a friend the next day, or help them remember their defeat.





Our new video is dedicated to those...
 

Video: Chariot on PS4: Bringing Gamers Together on PlayStation 4

14w ago - Creative Lead and Programmer Philippe Dion posted up a PS4 video today which brings gamers together in Chariot on PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hello everybody! My name is Philippe Dion; I'm the creative lead and also a programmer on [Register or Login to view links].

For those who don't know about the game yet, Chariot is a humorous, cooperative, physics-based platformer where a princess and her fiancÚ need to travel through a network of caves to find a resting place for their dead king, who takes the form of a hypochondriac ghost.

For now, I'm really excited to have this opportunity to share some of Chariot's vision with you.





Where it Came From

When I first presented the concept of Chariot, I envisioned a different kind of cooperative game. I found that the "co-op" concept in video games often boiled down to having a duplicate of the main character on the screen, resulting most of the time in a competition between players to get the highest score or lead the way.

If you've played co-op games before, then I assume you feel the same thing I do when playing with someone who never waits for you and/or who grabs...
 

Video: Velocity 2X on PS4: Learning From Gamers Like You

59w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden posted up a video today showcasing Velocity 2X on PS4 which outlines how the team leans from their audience of fellow gamers.

To quote: Hey folks. We had such a good time showcasing Velocity 2X at the Eurogamer Expo, we'd like to share our experience with you!

First of all, we managed to find the courage to jump on stage to talk about Velocity 2X in a Developer Session. For those who missed it, we talked about how we've approached making a PS Minis game desirable for PS4.

Velocity 2X takes everything that worked in Velocity Ultra and applies it to a side-scrolling platformer. That's right - in Velocity 2X you can get out of your ship to run around on foot.

You can also teledash through obstacles and throw a personal teleporter to reach high ledges and solve puzzles.





We've also revealed the new enemy in the series: the evil Vokh. They're massive, fast, and tricky to defeat because of their advanced shield technology. However, as you'll see from the video below, Kai's teledash creates a spacetime warp that disrupts their shield temporarily, allowing you to get some cheeky shots from behind!

115w ago - Wired Productions Product Manager Sean Walsh has announced today that Let's Fish Hooked On aims to reel in PS Vita gamers.

To quote: Being our first, exclusive, collaboration with Sony, we are extremely proud to bring you Let's Fish!

Hooked On, the first full-scale fishing game on PS Vita, coming this autumn. So, being given the opportunity to speak directly to real gamers, we decided to share the game's first screenshots and artwork here.

Let's Fish! Hooked On, which was originally released in Japan, is developed by renowned Tokyo-based studio SIMS, whose games include SEGA Bass Fishing and PSP launch title Ape Escape.

If you hadn't guessed already, Let's Fish! Hooked On also has beautifully illustrated anime style artwork - designed by well-known Japanese artist Poyoyon Rock (whose most recent character design artwork was used for the manga series The World God Only Knows).

The game combines realistic fishing action with fast arcade-style gameplay and comes complete with a full story mode, which aims to make fishing fun for everyone.

Choosing between four different characters, each with their own storyline and unique skills, players are challenged to improve their skills and become World Champion by competing in a host of progressively more...

131w ago - The Workshop President Peter Akemann has announced alongside the official PlayStation 3 launch trailer that Sorcery is casting a spell on PS3 gamers everywhere today!

To quote: Well, it's been a long time coming but today it's finally here - Sorcery! PlayStation Move is a magic wand at last!

Sorcery is the first of its kind - a full-fledged action adventure created natively for the PlayStation Move motion controller. All of us at The Workshop feel tremendously privileged that we could bring this game to life.

Many of you have been following us since our first announcement back at E3 2010 and we have worked tirelessly since then to meet the expectations that arose from our on-stage presentation.

It was a massive effort, and I cannot say enough about of the men and women who gave themselves so completely to the task. I also have to thank PlayStation for their profound commitment and willingness to believe in the vision, even when the road ahead was uncertain.





We all believe the result is truly something special - a timeless adventure and a genuinely new and immersive gaming experience.

A real game that serious gamers can sink their teeth into, yet one that casual players...
