This is Marc from Drool. Back in 2009, Brian Gibson and I teamed up to create Thumper, our rhythm violence game. Today, we’re excited to finally announce Thumper is launching alongside PlayStation VR on October 13.
Thumper contains nine epic levels playable in both ultra-glossy 2D and fully immersive VR. Over the past few months, we’ve made many enhancements to take full advantage of PS VR. We’ve fine-tuned movement speed, the scale of the game world, and our visual effects to create an overwhelming sense of speed and monumental dread. It’s hard to describe if you’ve never been a space beetle on a screaming hell ride before. But no matter which way you play, we think you’ll feel the violence!
Attention, PS Plus members! We’re happy to share your free PS4 games for next month. Prepare to raise a little mayhem in the depths of hell, or battle brutal bosses in a strange, ruined world.
First up, we have Saints Row: Gat out of Hell. Enter the open-world sandbox setting of New Hades and wreak havoc. If you’re even remotely familiar with the Saints Row franchise, you know that over-the-top antics are waiting for you. The developers at Volition have been honing their craft on this franchise, and playing Saints Row: Gat out of Hell is a great way enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Next up is Furi, a new title from The Game Bakers. Built on the premise of making a game that is both simple and deep, Furi is a fast-paced, intense, and ultimately rewarding gameplay experience. While play mechanics allow for an easy approachability, the depth comes from the ways with which you use those skills to take on unique opponents. Furi pits you against guardians, each with his own style, in what feels more like carefully crafted duels than boss fights. The Game Bakers have made something special, and we hope you enjoy it.
We are happy to share that PlayStation Vue is expanding to Roku devices today, with support for Android smartphones and tablets launching next week. Since we’ve launched PlayStation Vue nationwide, we have heard from many of you that Roku and Android are the top devices you wanted us to add, so we’re pleased to make this a reality.
Okay! We’re one week from the big show, so I suppose I should reveal what we’ve been working on for the past few months.
live.playstation.com will be the premier destination for all PlayStation video coming out of E3 2016. That includes our PlayStation E3 2016 Press Conference and our three-day PlayStation LiveCast show featuring live demos, interviews, and demos of more than 60 upcoming PS4 and PlayStation VR titles. There will be LOTS to watch: More than 18 hours of original, live video content, in fact.
With E3 just around the corner (wow, is it really only two weeks away?!), I’m excited to announce that the PlayStation E3 Experience is coming back on Monday, June 13, to over 85 movie theaters across the US, Canada, and for the first time, Latin America!
In 2014, we had this crazy idea to partner with Fathom Events and broadcast our E3 Press Conference LIVE to some theaters North America, not knowing if this was something people would even be interested in attending. Two years later, and we’ve had to more than double our seating capacity to accommodate everybody!
Hello once again! This is Brian Michael Bendis, executive producer of the PlayStation Original Series Powers and co-creator of the comic book series the show is based on.
The second season of the PlayStation Original series Powers is quickly approaching, and we can’t wait for you to watch the premiere. Today we have a couple reveals for the PlayStation community.
