Sony Considering PS4 'Early Access' Program

Sony has stated that it's looking at a similar system of Steam for the Playstation 4. Steam's early access on PC allows players to purchase and try games that are still in active development. This allows the developers to bring in revenue that helps fund the final development of the game, while using its player-base for feedback and bug reports.

"That’s one of the massive conversations we have internally — that, at what point does [a game meet standards of release]?" Sony's Adam Boyes said in an interview with Gamasutra. "We still at some point ensure that we're being mindful of the consumer. We don't want somebody to stumble across that title and expect a full product, and have a negative experience."
This sort of system would allow Sony to attract a wider array of gamers, including those who would be willing, and interested, in paying for an early copy of the game and helping give feedback for development.

"We live in a different world. There are different types of people. There people who always back games, enjoy Kickstarters, try things that they know aren't finished but are willing to help make better," Boyes continued.
Players often expect a higher level of polish and a smoother experience. "Honestly, we're working through that right now. We're figuring out what's OK," Boyes said.
"We obviously have our tech requirement checklist that people have to adhere to. So we're internally discussing, what does that list look like this? What are the caveats? Stuff like this. So it's still a project that a lot of minds are considering. No details yet, but it's something on the top of my mind every day."

Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis Heading to PS3

Deadfall Adventures released last year on PC and X360. While the game's visuals were praised, the level design and acting were somewhat lacking. Developer Farm 51 hopes to improve these aspects when they bring it over to PS3.

Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis is a first person shooter based on Allen Quartermain novels (think Indian Jones). The PS3 version is set to include new bosses, locations, and cut-scenes, as well as adding a co-op survival game mode. The developer even plans to upgrade the visuals. Though there is no exact release date, one would hope that these changes are for the better when it finally arrives this Summer.

Destiny Beta Platform Selection Now Available

Bungie just made the platform selection for the beta of Destiny available on the official portal. And the sweetest thing is that each code will grant you not one, but three download keys to fill a full fireteam with your friends.

Note: This is only for those who pre-ordered the game

All you have to do is to access your account, go on to the “redeemed codes” page and select your platform and region (the region is can be selected only for PlayStation platforms, as Xbox One codes are global).

The system will then ask you for confirmation, and you better be sure when you click on “yes,” because your choice cannot be undone.

Whichever your choice, you won’t get your codes immediately. Those will appear on the same page on the day of the beginning of the beta: July 17th for PlayStation Platforms and July 23rd for Xbox consoles.

Update: According to Bungie, the selection for PS4 beta codes for the European region will become available “before the Destiny Beta begins on 7/17.” At the moment that particular combination can’t be selected, so if you’re European and want to play on PS4, you will have to wait a bit longer.

Uncharted Trilogy - PS4 Remaster Hinted

The Uncharted series has received worldwide critical acclaim from reviewers and gamers and has sold 18 million worldwide. Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) chief Shuhei Yoshida has indicated that the Uncharted franchise could be next in line for a PlayStation 4 makeover.

During an interview with Eurogamer, Yoshida described Nathan Drake’s PlayStation 3 action-adventure trilogy as a “good candidate” for a next-generation remaster.

"Almost 50 per cent of people who have purchased a PS4 didn't own a PS3, and that's lots of people that missed exclusive PS3 titles like The Last of Us, so it's a great way to welcome those people back to PlayStation, saying this is what you missed," said Yoshida-san.

"There are requests from some consumers for games that were released later in the generation, like Uncharted, which people might have missed," he added. "That would be a good candidate."

White PS4 to be Available Without Destiny "Soon"

Destiny is shaping up to be one of the biggest (if not the biggest) releases of 2014. To sweeten the deal for those planning to adopt a next-gen console, Sony announced a deal with Bungie that would bring a glossy white PS4 to market with a copy of Destiny.

If you are interested in the new White PS4 but don't necessarily care for/want Destiny, you'll be able to purchase the console seperately in the future. According to Shuhei Yoshida, after Destiny launches on September 9, "we're going to release the standalone white PS4 as well in Europe." There is no set date for this new availability, or if the standalone White version will become available in North America.

Rogue Legacy Coming July 29th

Rogue Legacy is an indie platform game with roguelike elements by Cellar Door Games. It will be making it's console debut on PS4, PS3, and the Vita at the end of the month.

Rogue Legacy is a game where you must conquer a magical castle which is constantly changing. Every time you die, your children succeed you. Each child has his or her own unique genetic traits, so one child might be a near sighted wizard, and another could be a flatulent ninja. So every play through is unique, right from the get-go.

  1. Cross Buy! — Do you want the awesome portable-ness of Vita? Or do you want the epic big screen experience of PS4/PS3? Don’t worry, you won’t have to make that choice because we’ll just give it all to you!
  2. Cross Save! — Going out? Play on the Vita, and when you get home, your save will be brought over to your PS4/PS3 via cloud magic!
  3. 101% Content! — Every single feature in the PC version, including all of the content patches, has been faithfully brought over to the Playstation versions. So you get all the extra Bonus zones, traits, and boss remixes jam packed into those sweet little bytes, along with just a little bit more. But only just a little.
  4. Multi-lingual! — Rogue Legacy’s been translated into a whole BUNCH of languages for you guys. We’ve got English, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Polish, Russian, and Spanish.
  5. PS Vita Control Scheme Bliss! — When we originally made Rogue Legacy, we made it with the PS Vita buttons in mind. No joke. We gambled that if it did well, we wouldn’t want the Vita version being nerfed in the control department, so we made sure to not use too many buttons. That crazy gamble we made over a year ago paid off, and that means the Vita version plays perfectly! Happiness!
  6. Platinum Trophy! — Aw yiss! Platinum awesome-ness!
