Knack Turns One on PS4: Easter Eggs, Ultra-Rare Statue Detailed

Knack Turns One on PS4: Easter Eggs, Ultra-Rare Statue Detailed 100°
14w 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...
 

Freedom Wars Out Tuesday, Characters & Panopticons Detailed

Freedom Wars Out Tuesday, Characters & Panopticons Detailed 250°
19w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino detailed both the characters panopticons in Freedom Wars today, which comes out for PS Vita this Tuesday.

To quote: Hello again Freedom Wars fans! With less than a week to go until Freedom Wars finally hits North America, I wanted to deliver a few more details regarding our awesome cast of characters and Western Panopticons to our English-speaking "Sinners" out there.

As you've seen through our various trailers, even throughout the multitude of cooperative and competitive modes, the story of Freedom Wars takes center stage. While contributing to society and steadily decreasing that million-year sentence, you'll encounter a myriad of interesting, (and might I add stylish) characters, starting with:

Aries
A mysterious girl who appears in front of our main character from time to time. Her prophetic-sounding words seem to be leading you down a certain path, but her true motives remain a mystery...

Natalia "9" Woo
The tough-as-nails Commander of The Office of Peace and Stability, 35th division. Natalia is tasked with protecting the peace in her Panopticon and keeping the Sinners in line. She might seem cold at first glance, but Natalia's rigid demeanor masks her deep-seated wish to protect her teammates.
 

Rebel Galaxy PS4: A Backwater Universe on PlayStation 4 Detailed

Rebel Galaxy PS4: A Backwater Universe on PlayStation 4 Detailed 50°
20w ago - Double Damage Games CEO and Developer Travis Baldree shared details today on Rebel Galaxy PS4, which is dubbed a backwater universe on PlayStation 4.

To quote: I love space games. And for a long time, it's been tough out there for people like me. Almost overnight though, it seems we've turned a corner.

Elite: Dangerous is more awesome with every build, Star Citizen is breaking records, No Man's Sky is gorgeous and surreal, and Enemy Starfighter looks amazing. I can't wait to play all of them!

Now Double Damage is throwing our hat in the, ring too, but with something very different. We wanted to build a swashbuckling space game, one filled with weird aliens, backwater bartenders, lawless pirates, and epic space battles. A game with a galaxy to explore, characters to befriend or enrage, and the random element that's been in so many of the games we've worked on.

Rebel Galaxy isn't set in a shiny, modern future - it's a greasy, rusty place on the edge of the known universe, where the ships are barely holding it together, and the people are, too. It's a sandbox galaxy where you play the character you want.

Are you a devious mercenary, collecting bounties? A crafty trader who hires protection wherever she goes? A pirate, preying on convoys? A roguish do-gooder? Maybe...
 

SingStar on PS4 and PS3: Out Soon, New Features Detailed

SingStar on PS4 and PS3: Out Soon, New Features Detailed 100°
20w ago - Sony Producer Jenny Murphy announced today that SingStar will be out on PS4 and PS3 soon with new features detailed below.

To quote: The brand new SingStar will be released on PS4 and PS3 in less than two weeks' time, and we're very excited to get it in to all SingStar players' hands!

Not only have we given the game an awesome interface overhaul, there are also tons of cool new features that I want to tell you about in a bit more detail.

No mic? No problem. The free SingStar Mic app can turn your smart device into a microphone. Simply download the app on your Android phone, iPhone, or iPod Touch , connect it to the same wifi network as your PS3 or PS4, and get going instantly.

To get all your friends at the party involved and have a go at winning (or failing miserably!), we've added a playlist creator to the SingStar Mic app so they can line up an ongoing list of songs while the singers are entertaining the room.

Pick any of the songs available on the PlayStation system you're connected to and just cue them up. Basically, no more waiting on the indecisive people in the room to decide if they want to sing No Doubt's Don't Speak or John Lennon's Imagine.

Got a competitive streak and want to beat down your PSN friends? Once you've finished your performance,...
 

Video: The Legend of Korra: Inside Elemental Combat Detailed

Video: The Legend of Korra: Inside Elemental Combat Detailed 50°
20w ago - Activision Lead Producer Robert Conkey shared a video today which delves inside Elemental Combat in The Legend of Korra below.

To quote: We're back with the second and final installment in our behind the scenes video diary for The Legend of Korra - produced in partnership with Nickelodeon and developer PlatinumGames.

Part two takes us deeper into this incredible world of elements and spirits, beginning with a more personal look at the Avatar herself, Korra, who struggles with her own powers and the weight of the decisions she's made between Books 2 and 3 of Nickelodeon's animated TV series.

We also get to see PlatinumGames' new combat and progression systems in action, which faithfully recreate Korra's unique mastery of nature and the martial arts for some potentially devastating combos and finishers.




The full adventure includes opportunities to ride Korra's polar bear dog companion, Naga, in high-speed gameplay scenes through Republic City and beyond, as well as a separate game mode in which Korra and her allies take on the competitive challenges of the pro-bending league arena.

And if you missed it, be sure to check out part one of our series,...
