Musical Performance Puzzler Sentris is Coming to PlayStation 4

Musical Performance Puzzler Sentris is Coming to PlayStation 4 50°
4h ago - PS4 Developer Samantha Kalman announced today that musical performance puzzler Sentris is coming to PlayStation 4!

To quote: Hey PlayStation fans! You may know me from the Game Industry Rumble or my appearances on Giant Bomb.

I'm an indie developer based in Seattle, and for the past two years I've been working on a new kind of music game called Sentris.

When I say "a new kind of music game," what I mean is that Sentris is very different from the rhythm games you already know. I'll tell you more in a moment, but first I want to share the exciting news that Sentris is coming to PS4!

As a life-long gamer but relatively new game developer, it's a major personal milestone to bring Sentris to PS4. I've played countless rhythm games, and the ones that have been most inspiring to me were ones I played on PlayStation. Rez, Parappa the Rapper, Gitaroo Man, Beatmania, Um Jammer Lammy, Bust-a-Groove, Beatmania, Guitar Hero, Vib Ribbon, the list goes on.

Playing these games inspired me to become a musician,...

Forma 8: Raising the Bar on Sony's PS4 and PlayStation Vita

Forma 8: Raising the Bar on Sony's PS4 and PlayStation Vita 300°
1w ago - MixedBag Cofounder Mauro Fanelli shared details below today on Forma.8, which he proclaims raises the bar on Sony's PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms.

To quote: It's almost one year since we announced that forma.8 was coming to PS4 and PS Vita on PlayStation.Blog, so it's time for an update, isn't it? In the announcement we shared a "late 2014" as a tentative release date and, as you can see since the game is still not available we, err... missed it, plain and simple.


Two factors contributed to the delay: first we focused on launching Futuridium EP Deluxe on PS4 and PS Vita and it took a bit more than expected, then we decided to raise the bar on forma.8, with a massive visual and technical overhaul.

As crazy as it may sound for a small team like MixedBag and on a long in the making project like forma.8 (we started working on it back in 2011!), we really felt that we had to try harder and polish the game further, pushing more and more to reach our original vision. And we're proud to finally share our progress with you for the first time here, right from the new demo we'll show at GDC next week!

Bringing An Alien World to Life


Forma.8 is an action adventure where you pilot a small robot probe stranded on an alien planet, on a dangerous mission...
 

Until Dawn's 5-Step Formula for Successful Scares on PlayStation 4

Until Dawn's 5-Step Formula for Successful Scares on PlayStation 4 50°
7w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton returns today with Until Dawn's 5-step formula for successful scares on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Admission: I'm a bona-fide horror nut. I love it. Can't get enough. You name it, I'll watch it: past-their-sell-by-date franchise sequels, grotty Eastern European video nasties, creepy found-footage indies, cliche-ridden teen slashers, and everything in between.

So, PS4-exclusive interactive horror Until Dawn is right up my alley.

Duly, last month I sat down with Jez Harris from developer Supermassive Games to pick his brains about the science of scaring poor innocent folk like you and I. He happily obliged, talking me through a few of the strategies the Guildford-based studio is employing to ensure you'll need to keep a clean change of underwear close at hand when the game hits the shelves later this year.

1. Bring in the experts

"We have Larry Fassenden and Graham Reznick as our script writers," explains Jez. "They are horror encyclopaedias in human form and have worked on all sorts of acclaimed horror movies, like The Innkeepers and Stakeland."

He's not wrong - these two know what they're...
 

Plex App is Now Available for PlayStation 3 and PS4 Platforms, Details

Plex App is Now Available for PlayStation 3 and PS4 Platforms, Details 550°
11w ago - Today the Plex application is officially released for PlayStation 3 and PS4 console platforms, although it currently is only available through Sony's European and Asian PSN Stores with more details below.

To quote: Plex: Now on Sega Genesis! Just Kidding, PS3 and PS4

Just over two months ago, we launched Plex for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 with great fanfare and a bevy of Barkley photos. And much rejoicing.

The very next day, Mr. lm_92 (presumably his dad worked for Texas Instruments) created a feature request in the Plex Pass member forum asking for a Plex app for the PlayStation 4. Since then, his request has been voted on almost one thousand times, and rocketed to become the number one request. Ever.

We noticed this meteoric rise just a week ago, and - jolted out of our usual slack-jawed complacency - we set ourselves up with some intravenous caffeine drips and coded for three days straight. In less time than it took to create, well, the Universe, we had the app running on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, so we took the rest of the week off and played a bunch of hacky sack.

OK, in all honesty, it did take us a bit longer than that. Like, we actually...
