Videos: PlayStation Turns 20, PS4 20th Anniversary Edition Revealed 550°
13w 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...

Video: Can You Survive the Distance PS4 on PlayStation 4? 250°
13w ago - Refract Developer Jordan Hemenway posted up a fresh PS4 video trailer today asking fans 'Can You Survive the Distance?' showcasing Distance on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Hi there! My name is Jordan Hemenway and I'm one of the developers at Refract, a Seattle-based indie studio.

I'm excited to finally unveil that we're bringing our survival racer Distance to PS4 in 2015, and you'll be able to play it at PlayStation Experience this weekend!




Distance is what we're calling a survival racing game. It takes the intense action of arcade racing and places it in an explorable, atmospheric world. The environments are mysterious and deadly with treacherous obstacles around every corner. Instead of doing laps on a loop, you'll be trying to survive from point A to point B.

Fortunately you control a unique car that allows you to boost, jump, rotate, and even fly. Instead of being constrained to the track, you can break away at any point and find your own path. You can even drive upside down or on buildings and walls parkour-style if you like.

Multiplayer takes this to the next level. To overtake your opponents you'll have to use all of the car's abilities at your disposal. For example, in Sprint...

Videos: Orchestrating The Order: 1886 on PlayStation 4, Details 200°
14w ago - Ready At Dawn Studios CEO and Creative Director Ru Weerasuriya posted up some fresh PS4 videos today on orchestrating The Order: 1886 on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: In the last few months, we've had the opportunity to show you some of the technology, the gameplay and the art behind our game. The team that came together to build The Order: 1886 was years in the making and we placed a tremendous amount of scrutiny to make sure we had the right people to bring our world to life.

One of the areas we hadn't quite explored at the onset of development was music. With all the effort we put into creating a compelling world, we knew we would be extremely demanding of how music would be composed for the game and especially who would be our partner in crime. We didn't just want a score; we were seeking a 'sound' that would define our world. We wanted to be inspired by whoever would join us to achieve this. The question was where to start.




The initial foray into our musical exploration came in the form of an unlikely meeting between two of the most accomplished composers in the gaming industry;...

Videos: Velocity 2X and the Element of Surprise (Spoilers Ahead!) 50°
23w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden shared some fresh videos (contains spoilers) today spotlighting Velocity 2X and the element of surprise!

To quote: Hi folks, James from FuturLab back again one last time to share our secret to creating a great sequel!

Before I get to that, I need to stress that this post contains MASSIVE SPOILERS for Velocity 2X. So please look away until you've finished it!

We knew that the original Velocity was going to delight and surprise people because we'd added something new, interesting and exciting to the shoot 'em-up genre.

This is really important for achieving critical word-of-mouth and great review scores, and as a small studio of just three people at the time, innovation and surprise was our ticket to earning support from PlayStation.

TWICE THE TWITCHY FUN

When it came to designing the sequel, we knew we couldn't rest on our laurels, and had to keep the surprises coming.

The first idea for the sequel was to include platforming, as that would provide stable ground to expand upon the cool new features introduced by the first game, and it would drive interest for the game once...
