PlayStation 4 2.0 Firmware Preview - console
(hx) 04:16 AM EDT - Oct,17 2014 - Post a comment
Scott McCarthy from SCEA has updated the PlayStation.Blog with a preview of the PS4's upcoming system software 2.00 update.
You may already know that PS4's upcoming system software 2.00, codenamed Masamune, adds some big features including Share Play, YouTube support, and Themes - but the updates don't end there. I have personally stated in past blog posts that we listen to our fans. PlayStation has heard gamers when they say they want more ways to find friends to play with, and more ways to personalize their PS4. With this update, we've added a Players You May Know tile, the ability to listen to your music while gaming, the option to change the look of your PS4 experience, and easier ways to sort and filter your library of content on PS4.

PS4 has been on sale for almost a year and we're committed to improving the player experience in entirely new ways. As always, we welcome feedback as part of our ongoing effort to make PS4 the best place to play.

USB Music Player: PS4 owners can play their own music in the background while playing a game using USB Music Player*. After inserting a USB stick loaded with music into the PS4, a new option for USB Music Player will appear. Supported filename extensions include MP3, MP4, M4A, and 3GP.
Change colors: In addition to the ability to add a theme, PS4 owners can also change the background of the home screen from light blue to one of seven new colors: gold, blue, red, green, purple, pink, and gray.
Players You May Know: PS4 will now suggest players you may know as potential friends in the ‘What's New' section.
Enhancements to Live Broadcasting: Masamune brings a variety of improvements to live broadcasting on PS4. In the Live From PlayStation app, PS4 owners can now select a Featured channel, which includes official broadcasts from PlayStation, broadcasts from people on a players friend list, and any game channel that the player has followed. Additionally, Live From PlayStation now has filters for searching broadcasts on a specific game, as well as support for archived broadcasts.
 - Content Area and Library: PS4's Content Area, which shows the latest games and apps a PS4 owner has used, has been redesigned to help make it easier to quickly find and access content. It now shows 15 of a player's most used apps or games, and additional items will be added to a player's Library. The Library on PS4 has improved filter and sort functions to help organize contented by type (game / app / TV & video), name (a - z or z - a), recently used, or install date.
- Enhanced Voice Commands: The ability to control PS4 using voice has been improved. Players can now say ‘PlayStation' to begin commands, and ‘All Commands,' to see a list of all voice command options available. New voice commands were added for live broadcasting, including "Start broadcast," "End broadcast," and "Find face."
- Add To Library: The monthly free PlayStation Plus games will have an ‘Add to Library' button in the PlayStation Store. This button will add a game to a PS4 owner's library without downloading it - saving space on their hard drive.

(hx) 12:04 PM EDT - Oct,16 2014 - Post a comment
Even though Bethesda has revealed a command console via which players can force The Evil Within running at full-screen mode (without black bars), this particular tweak comes with a really messed up FOV. There are currently two mods that can fix the incorrect FOV when letterboxes are disabled. The first one comes from K-Putt, while the second one is still under development by Hayden, creator of Flawless Widescreen.

Destructive Creation announced today Hatred, an upcoming isometric shooter with a disturbing atmosphere of masskilling, where player takes the role of a cold blood Antagonist, who is filled with hate against humanity. Moreover, the company released the first screenshots and the debut gameplay trailer for it.

In Hatred, players wander the outskirts of New York State, seeking for victims on seven free-roam levels. Contrary to other titles, in Hatred you are not the hero; you are the villain.

In Hatred you will fight against law enforcement and take a journey into the Antagonist's hateful mind. You will gather equipment of the dead "human shields", to spread armageddon in the society, destroy everything on your way of hunt and fight back when it's disturbed.

Hatred is currently planned for a Q2 2015 release on the PC.

Dead Rising 3 PC Patch 4 Out Now - patch
(hx) 06:21 PM EDT - Oct,15 2014 - Post a comment
There is a new patch out for Dead Rising 3 that addresses a crash-on-boot issue. Also, if you are running a SLI / CrossFire set up, you are going to want to read the quote below:
Heads up that another Dead Rising 3 PC patch has just gone live! This one will address the crash-on-boot issue some players have still been experiencing, as well as an issue affecting those playing the game in Russian. We want to say thank you to the community for providing us with information that led to the fixes for the crash on boot issue. It was a bug which was easy to fix but hard to find, and continued support really has paid off. The full change list is below:

- Fixed an issue which would cause the game to crash on boot for players running the game from a hard drive with a sector size that is different from their C Drive
- Fixed an issue which was causing the game to crash in a specific area when playing in Russian.

We also want to comment on some of the issues people are having when trying to force SLI and Crossfire to work. Some players have set up their systems to force usage of both GPUs by default, and some players have tried to force SLI/Crossfire ON while playing DR3. While this can benefit some games, DR3 PC does not make use of dual-GPUs. If your system is set to force dual-GPU usage when playing games, you can expect to see lower frame rates when compared to not forcing this setting.
HBO Without Cable, Coming In 2015 - tech
(hx) 05:30 PM EDT - Oct,15 2014 - Post a comment
In 2015 a standalone, over-the-top HBO Go service will launch in the the U.S, HBO Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler just confirmed, in a move that had been in the wind for some time. HBO launched its existing streaming service, HBO Go, in February 2010. HBO Go is available on computers, smartphones, tablets, game consoles and other connected devices, but access to it requires authentication with login information from a pay-TV customer who already subscribes to HBO. During his talk, Plepler noted that about 10 million households in the U.S. only pay for broadband internet and not cable TV. It's possible that many of them would like to pay for HBO by itself, rather than having to subscribe to cable (or mooch off someone else who does). Streaming video services such as Netflix and Amazon Instant Video have built up massive subscriber bases in recent years with plans that cost less than $10 a month. HBO could follow a model similar to World Wrestling Entertainment, which launched the WWE Network earlier this year. For $9.99 per month, the WWE Network gives subscribers on-demand access to thousands of hours of archive programming and all monthly pay-per-view events.

RomoCart transforms your living room into Racetrack - briefly
(hx) 05:30 PM EDT - Oct,14 2014 - Post a comment
RomoCart is a new racing game created by Ken Kawamoto and Tomoaki Akitomi which can turn your living room into a racing track! The technology used is very simple. Xtion motion sensing camera and a video projector hangs from the ceiling; both are pointed down at the floor. The camera and the video recorder make a racing track by scanning the room, and taking into consideration the layout of the room and the position of the objects placed on the floor. A race course is projected so as to avoid any hindrance by objects on the floor. Not only you can play racing, but you can also fire missiles at each other, you can also add your own objects like a teddy bear can be used as a rotating gun turret. Oh! What a fun game, really! One drawback is the speed is very slow, but it has all the attributes of a Nintendo; a race track, cars, and weapons. Just the idea of having a game like this in your living room gives an adrenaline rush.
