The Sims 4 is Coming to PS4! Out November 17

Posted by on Jul 26, 2017

Greetings Simmers! I’m thrilled to announce that The Sims 4 is finally coming to PlayStation 4 November 17th!

Over the last couple of years, we have heard from many of you about how much you want the game to come to console, and I have been right there with you. I love our PC game, but what I’ve really wanted is to plop down on my sofa, and play with my Sims at a larger than life size. And in just a few months, you can do just that right alongside me on PlayStation 4.

For those of you unfamiliar with The Sims, it is a game that gives players the imaginative power to create and control virtual people and play with moments of their lives. You can create and customize who you want; find your first love; land your dream job; build the perfect home; start a family; and more. The Sims offers you a sandbox for you to tell, observe, or influence life’s little dramas, while offering one of the most sophisticated character creation tools in the market.

Cute-as-heck Platformer A Hat in Time Comes to PS4 This Fall

Posted by on Jul 26, 2017

Jak and Daxter, Sly Cooper, and Ape Escape are some of my fondest PlayStation memories. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that our cute-as-heck 3D platformer A Hat in Time is the first of many games coming to PS4 through our new publishing initiative “Presented by Humble Bundle.” We’re working with Denmark studio Gears for Breakfast to bring Hat Kid and all her adorably stitched hats to you this fall for $29.99.

It’s amazing to see how much time and effort goes into making such a huge platformer with tight mechanics, gorgeously visuals and music, and a wacky story. Years ago, Gears for Breakfast threw its hat into the development ring, helping create a resurgence of 3D platformers. Since then, the Gears team surprised itself with just how big an adventure it could make.

Turn Scrap Heaps into Supercars in Need for Speed Payback

Posted by on Jul 26, 2017

Hey PlayStation fans! Once again, it’s great to be back here on the blog to talk to you about Need for Speed Payback.

We all know that there are few things better than creating your own one of a kind car, but what if you could take it that one step further? In Need for Speed Payback we’re adding a new type of car, something we’re calling Derelicts.

Derelicts are cars that you build up, from nothing but scrap, to stock and ultimately, into a supercar. Upgrade your Derelict all the way to Tier 3 and you’ll be able to turn it into a Super Build. Allowing you to unlock more extreme visual customization, turning what was once a piece of scrap into an absolute beast.

Discover the Creators: Tim Schafer’s Favorite PS4 Games

Posted by on Jul 25, 2017

Discover The Creators is a PlayStation Store curation program in which we’ve asked some of the biggest names in the biz to pick their favorite PS4 games in order to help your find your next game to play.

There is more than one way to skin a cat (don’t ask me how I know that) and there’s also more than one way to tell a great story in games. You can do it with great dialog, or no dialog at all. You can focus on the depth of the characters, or on the richness of the environment. You can bring your hero’s choices to life with game play mechanics that are complex, or extremely simple.
And that’s why this list of great PS4 story-telling games is so diverse–they all tackle the problem in their own style. Each one finds a unique way to bring its world, it’s characters, it’s story to life. And no cats are skinned in any of them. I’m sorry I even brought that up.
