Soul Sacrifice Now Available On PlayStation Plus

Posted on November 26, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Did you miss out on Keiji Inafune’s last post mega man project, Soul Sacrifice? Sony has posted this latest Vita exclusive role-playing game for all PlayStation Plus subscribers to enjoy. We don’t know how long the game will be available so you should grab it as soon as possible – sometimes free games are available for a few months and other times they’re gone after only a few short weeks.

The install clocks in at about 1.8 GBs, so if you are still using one of the 4GB memory cards that often ships with the PlayStation Vita you might be in a bit of trouble.


HyperDimension Neptunia: Victory Coming PSN

Posted on November 11, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Did you miss out on NIS’ videogame-history inspired RPG Hyperdimension Neptunia when it was released this past March? If you did then don’t worry about trying to hunt down a physical copy at your local EB Games or paying inflated prices on Amazon or Ebay because NIS America / NIS Europe will be releasing the game on the PlayStation Network. You’ll be available to download the game in the comfort of your own home right to your PlayStation 3 console. It’ll be available November 26th or 27th depending on your region!

Hyperdimension Neptunia is the third game in the long running RPG franchise. Featuring a self-aware, and often fourth wall breaking main character – Neptune – these games blend traditional roleplaying mechanics with video game references and tropes. Unlike other entries in the series, Victory takes cues from the system wars of the 1980s. Be prepared to be transported back to the 8-bit wars of yesteryear! Heck, the main character’s name, Neptune, is a reference to a failed SEGA console that didn’t see the light of day.

Posted on June 9, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

The Iron Fist tournament goes free to play this coming Tuesday with the announcement of Tekken Revolution for the PlayStation Network. In a bit of a surprise announcement, Namco Bandai announced the title yesterday, with a release date just a few days from now. So, right in the middle of E3 you can beat the living crap of people in this latest Tekken title.

Eight characters have been confirmed for Revolution, all of them returning from previous games, including Asuka, Jin, Lilly, Steve Fox and more. Players will be able to level up their characters in a variety of categories including strength, endurance and vigor. This is a first time character progression ha sbeen featured in the series, in previous entries gold was earned for finishing matches, but the currency was only good for cosmetic items.

We don’t know if all 8 characters are unlocked from the start, or if you’ll get only one or two at start and have to unlock the rest through in game currency/real world micro transactions. There is the potential for these eight characters to be available off the hop with more as optional purchases. Also, no details on the amount of stages available, and whether or not those will be hidden behind a pay wall.

PS4 Confirmed, Here Are The Tech Specs

Posted on February 20, 2013 by Eric Bastelak

Sony confirmed the PS4 at their “see the future” press event today in New York city. Taking the stage, the system’s architect outlined the development process behind the console, as well as several key features of the system and our first look at the user interface.

As previously rumored the system is based off an existing AMD APU – said to be clocked at 1.6GHZ, which has been confirmed to contain 8 cores. The GPU is very powerful according to Sony and the PlayStation 4 features 8GB of unified memory, giving developers approximately 16x the ram available in current generation consoles.

There isn’t just new hardware under the hood, Sony’s dual shock controller also has some major changes in store. The addition of a share button allows players to share screenshots, video and upload them onto the web without complicated software. The controller also features a light bar, similar to the move controller, which when used in conjunction with a new camera accessory gives the system the ability to detect the controllers position in 3D space.

Development of the PS4 began in 2008 and features a whole series of new features. We will have more soon, as it is announced.


Sony Issues Mysterious Credits To Loyal PSN Users Ahead of Press Conference

Posted on February 20, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Quick, check your PSN account! Did you receive a $5 or $10 voucher from Sony for the PlayStation Store? Several PSN users in North America are reporting (via twitter and NeoGaf) that they have received either of the credits in their PSN wallets as well as a thanks from the company for being a loyal supporter. While we don’t quite know their motive behind this move, perhaps it has something to do with the huge “See The Future” event being held in New York City?

There was also no apparent pattern for who received the credit, with some users reporting that they had the funds added to their account as much as a week ago. Perhaps Sony will be putting something special on the store during their press conference?

It is expected that we will get the first details of the PlayStation 4 at tonight’s event. We will be blogging during the entire event and posting recaps afterward, are you as excited as we are?
