Sony Introduces PlayStation Heroes, Play Games with Celebs for Causes

400°
2w ago - Sony VP of Platforms Marketing John Koller introduced PlayStation Heroes today, where users can play games with celebrities to benefit the world's great causes!

To quote: Hi PlayStation Nation! I'm extremely excited to announce PlayStation HEROES, a brand new initiative that will give PS4 owners the chance to play celebrities and professional athletes in the games of their choosing, with nearly all funds raised going to charity.

This is not a one-time event - gamers will get the chance to challenge celebs every month.

Winners will play some of the biggest PS4 games with cultural icons from the sports and entertainment worlds, online via PlayStation Network and in person.

Here's how it works: PS4 owners will purchase and download digital themes and other items via an official PlayStation HEROES app, with each dollar spent providing you with a sweepstakes entry to win one of the celebrity gaming sessions.

Ninety percent of the purchase price of those items will help aid some amazing charitable organizations including Make-A-Wish, The USO and The V Foundation for Cancer Research. To celebrate PlayStation HEROES and kick start our support for these incredible causes, we're donating $100,000 to each charity.


 

Video: Bringing The Order: 1886 for PS4 to Life on PlayStation 4

3w ago - Ready at Dawn Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer Andrea Pessino shared a video today on bringing The Order: 1886 for PS4 to life on PlayStation 4!

To quote: Yes! The Order: 1886 is done! From a grand idea flickering in Ru's disturbingly creative noggin it was imagined, developed and thus realized with love and care by a small team of immature, somewhat unstable, naively optimistic artists and engineers here at Ready At Dawn Studios.




The early days of development on The Order: 1886 were some of the most exciting of our professional careers.

PS4 was still an evolving set of specifications, but it was obvious from the beginning that Sony was going to push the limit of what one could expect from a home console.

We knew that the generational leap in terms of visual, audio and simulation fidelity would be remarkable.

We needed an equally ambitious set of goals for the technology we were developing for our game. We set on creating everything from scratch, with the goal of realizing the unrestrained vision of our artists by innovating in the areas of image fidelity, shading, illumination, volumetric effects and simulation techniques.

It was a huge challenge, but at the end...

Video: Life is Strange Episode 1 Out Tomorrow on PS4 and PS3

1050°
4w ago - Dontnod's Jmax announced today that Life is Strange Episode 1 is out tomorrow on PS4 and PS3 platforms with a fresh video trailer below.

To quote: So in our last post we said that Apotheon would be launching sometime in January. Turns out we were off by a few days. Apotheon will actually be launching on February 3rd, 2015.

But, we've got a really good excuse! The reason for the short delay is because Apotheon will also be featured as part of Playstation Plus, and will be free for the month of February to all Playstation Plus subscribers for PS4!

Check out our new launch trailer showing off a bit of our voice acting talent.




The first episode that you'll play is called Chrysalis, and it's basically an introduction to the world of Life is Strange. You'll see Max and Chloe reunite and you'll make important choices that will influence their destiny.

You will see some of the short-term consequences of those choices but bear in mind that there are also mid and long-term repercussions that will pan out over the course of the later episodes, in a butterfly effect manner.
