Sony Goes Hands on with Dark Souls II for PS4 on PlayStation 4

1100°
3w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Manager Sid Shuman went hands on with Dark Souls II for PS4 today on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin on PS4 adds the expected technical improvements, but also remixes core gameplay elements to give veterans a reason to dive back in.

The jump to PS4 has given developer FromSoftware an opportunity to paint a more pleasing picture. The native 1080p resolution, upgraded lighting effects, and cinematic filters give the game a richer, cleaner look compared to the PS3 version.

But the biggest improvement comes from the improved frame rate - 60 frames per second according to Bandai Namco representatives. The increased fluidity translates into more responsive movement and combat, a major advantage considering the game's famously unforgiving difficulty.

Then there are the gameplay adjustments. You won't be able to rely on your memory to cakewalk the PS4 game because some enemies and item locations have been changed. Enemies will follow you more tenaciously, even through fog gates - a terrifying, potentially ruinous side effect of PS4's expanded RAM pool.

Some weapons are also being tweaked. I noticed that the Fire Long Sword, a powerful early-game weapon that saved my butt countless times on...

Sony Goes Hands-on with DmC: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4

4w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with DmC: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: When DmC: Devil May Cry launched in January of 2013, Ninja Theory introduced the world to a fresh interpretation of an iconic video game (anti)hero.

Half angel, half demon, the Dante of DmC not only fought legions of demon spawn, but the misinformation of an evil corporation. The demon king Mundus took a CEO's office, not a dark throne. It was a new game world, and Dante kicked its ass.

Now the smart-talking Dante fights on in DmC: Definitive Edition, launching March 10th on PS4. It's an enhanced version of the original PS3 game with a slew of new features and a layer of polish that makes Dante's demon-killing exploits and confident gunplay even more satisfying.

I had a chance to put the Definitive Edition through its paces, and managed to avoid embarrassing myself in the Bloody Palace along the way.

Starting with the basics: the Definitive Edition runs at 60 frames per second in crisp 1080p. This propels the fast-paced combat and kinetic environments to new heights, enhancing Dante's deft swordwork and the ever-shifting realm of Limbo.

To fully wring every advantage out of these new performance upgrades, the...
