Video: PS4 Has 2000 Friend Limit, PlayStation 4 Party Chat Free to All

Video: PS4 Has 2000 Friend Limit, PlayStation 4 Party Chat Free to All 400°
83w ago - Today a new PlayStation Q&A video (below) has surfaced from Sony confirming that Party Chat will be available on the PS4 without PS Plus and that the friends list can hold up to 2000 friends.

To quote: "Sony has confirmed that you won't need a PS Plus subscription to make use of the PlayStation 4's party chat functionality.

In a new Q&A video, it's been revealed that the new party chat feature will be available to everyone, even if they opt not to subscribe to PlayStation Plus.

At the moment, a PlayStation Plus subscription is needed to the online multiplayer of most titles, though services like Netflix, party chat, and free-to-play games like DC Universe Online will be available without it.




Additionally, the video also confirms that PlayStation 4 friends lists will be capped at 2,000 people, DualShock 3 controllers won't work with the PS4 while the PlayStation Move will, and your PSN avatar and username will carry over to PlayStation 4 along with a host of privacy options.

One of the biggest concerns fans have raised about the PlayStation 4 is just how many features will be accessible without owning a PS Plus account."

Video: God of War: Ascension Brings Kratos & Spartan Army to Life 100°
107w ago - Sony Senior Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo has posted up a video today announcing that God of War: Ascension brings Kratos and his Spartan Army to life.

Below are the details, to quote: By now, I'm sure you've caught the God of War: Ascension "From Ashes" live action trailer we debuted last Friday, and if you haven't, you need to go watch it right now!

You may have even caught the 60-second version air during the online live stream of the Super Bowl this past Sunday.

This trailer has been a labor of love for all of us here, and based on the comments and feedback on YouTube and elsewhere, all of the effort was well worth it. I'm very excited to share with you a couple of behind-the-scenes videos that show a glimpse of what went into bringing the world of Kratos to life.

Kratos is not an easy man to replicate in the flesh. This first video shows how we transformed our talented, and extremely buff, actor Brandon White, into the legendary Spartan General. A lot of work went into making sure his tattoo, armor, costume and ash make-up looked just right.

Add this to an amazing performance, and the Ghost of Sparta is no longer just an angry, rage filled monster, but a full embodiment of the humanity of...

Video: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows PSP / PS Vita Coming, No Mercy 200°
112w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has posted up a video today spotlighting Corpse Party: Book of Shadows for PSP and PS Vita which is incoming next week with details below.

To quote: Well, the time is almost upon us. A week from today - Tuesday, January 15th, 2013 - Corpse Party: Book of Shadows will be available for purchase on the North American PlayStation Store for $19.99, with a European release to follow shortly thereafter.

It's been a long journey getting this game to you guys, so it seemed prudent to give you all a bit more information about it. After all, an appetite for blood and dismay is at its best when thoroughly whetted.

And since each chapter in Corpse Party: Book of Shadows tells its own standalone story, I thought the best way to make you salivate even more would be to give a brief, spoiler-free introduction to each one. So without further ado, here's a taste of what's in store for you when you fire up your PSP (or PS Vita) next week.




Chapter 1: Seal

An important introduction to the "alternate universe" within which several of the game's chapters take place. What if our poor Kisaragi High protagonists went into Heavenly Host Elementary School (the cursed...

Video: Party with Elvira in The Pinball Arcade Tomorrow on PSN 50°
122w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King is here with a new video featuring Elvira in The Pinball Arcade which hits PSN tomorrow.

To quote: Happy Halloween week guys and gals - we've got a special treat for you all! In our on-going quest to re-create as many of the best pinball tables of all time, we were able to get the licenses needed from Bally and the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira!

This means Elvira and the Party Monsters will be released in Table Pack 6 tomorrow, and Scared Stiff will be released before too long in Table Pack 7.

Elvira has been super cool to work with. She invited us to part of her Macabre Museum at Comikaze Expo last month.

We got to show off the Party Monsters table right along with a real machine. Some of the guys here on the pinball team got to meet her, and she even came over and played our game for a while. She's actually pretty good at pinball!




This is also pretty cool - X-Play just gave us the nod for two of their top five favorite...
