All of us at Sucker Punch are looking forward to a big anniversary—we’re about to turn 20 years old! Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough room to invite all of you to our anniversary party, so we did the next best thing—we added Infamous: Second Son to your Instant Game Collection this month! Have fun!
Long ago, in October of 1997, five friends and I left cushy jobs at Microsoft, sublet some crappy office space down the street, and got to work on our first game.
We’ve been on Team Sony for a long time, but our first game was actually for the Nintendo 64—Rocket: Robot on Wheels, a light-hearted physics-based platformer starring a plucky maintenance robot who has to rescue a theme park from the dastardly clutches of a criminally-minded raccoon. After two years of hard work, a smattering of critical success, and a somewhat tepid response from the game-buying public, we took one important thing away from the project: “criminally-minded raccoon”.
Last year, PlayStation Store turned 10! We celebrated with a video that introduced an iconic Merchant, the embodiment of the magic and mystery of PlayStation Store. I know that the Merchant has become a bit of a fan favorite among the PlayStation community, so today, I’m delighted to announce that our friend returns in a powerful new chapter that you can watch at the top of this post.
Watch our new spot as the Merchant descends deeper into the Store, passing through different worlds within some of PS4’s biggest upcoming games: Call of Duty WWII, God of War, and Star Wars Battlefront II, just to name a few.
A little over two years have gone by since we announced Hob, and now we’re crossing the finish line: Hob launches tomorrow!
Many of your questions about Hob have been along the lines of “What is this world?” We’re dying to hear your own theories as you play, but we also created a webcomic (illustrated and inked by our concept artist Kristina Ness), to reveal backstory you won’t find in the game. The comic features our construct, who we affectionately nicknamed Jeeves, through the many years he has waited for you.
Hi guys! Brett from AnimEVO here on behalf of Bandai Namco. With all the excitement surrounding Gundam Versus for the PS4, we wanted to let people know about the history behind this franchise. A breathtaking game in and of its own, much of the excitement with Gundam Versus’ upcoming US release revolves around its role as the newest in a long running arcade franchise dating back to 2001. So, let’s take a brief look at the history of the Gundam VS series.
Hey PlayStation Nation! Everyone here at Capcom is proud to let our fans know that Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is now available on PS4!

Agent, you’ve been hard at work saving the world, and you really deserve a vacation. So we’re going to to give you one. On October 24, you will be able to download a new update to I Expect You To Die (IEYTD) entitled First Class. New and existing players will travel in a first class train cabin on an all-expenses-paid vacation across India. What do I mean by “all-expenses-paid?” The level is free, of course! Sit back, relax, and… well, try not to die.
