Sony sells the PS4 with 'The PlayStation Doctor'

Marketing Says Sex Sells, And Sony Thinks So Also - So Here Comes The Sexy Doctor To Get You Gaming!

Sony is always weird with their adverts, and this one is getting alot of heat for the way The PlayStation Doctor heats up the gaming action you can do thanks to the PlayStation 4 Remote Play with Vita

Sony is famous for stirring up the pot with their weird ads, and their latest one 'The PlayStation Doctor' is fits the bill, as the sexy doctor heats up the screen talking about how you can perform gaming anyplace now thanks to the fact the PS4 has Remote Play with the Vita.

So what you think is this a sure-fire way to sell the PS4/Vita bundle this Holiday Season as sex sells, so this might work for Sony also?

PS4 Advanced Warfare Blocks Share Play

Nov 06, 2014 - 10:56 AM - by garyopa
Latest Call of Duty censors all Share Play footage, effectively blocking out second users.

The PlayStation 4 edition of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare blocks Share Play functionality, GameSpot has confirm this news, plus others have reported even the previous CoD: Ghosts game is blocked

When Sony first announced the SharePlay feature alot of people thought it would be great even tho it is limited to 60 minutes, but seems Activision does not like it at all, and found a way to block it, even tho Sony has said it would work on all PS4 games.

Internal tests at GameSpot show that Activision has marked all gameplay footage as censored, which does not affect the owner's console, but ensures that gameplay cannot be streamed to another user.

Activision's block on Share Play functionality comes little more than a week after Sony claimed the feature would work on all games. It marks the latest setback for Sony, following weeks of major network and update problems.

Share Play allows two PS4 owners to play the same single copy of a game over the Internet. The owner is designated as the host, and can stream gameplay footage to a guest console. The host can relinquish control of the game to the guest too, effectively giving another user the chance to play without paying.

While Share Play is limited to sixty minutes per session, users can return to the mode immediately after the time ends. There is no cap on Share Play sessions either, meaning that a game can effectively be shared indefinitely.

When the concept was presented during a media briefing in late October, Sony was questioned by GameSpot about whether all third-party publishers were on board with the system.

At the time, Sony representatives told GameSpot that Share Play works across all PS4 games. When asked whether publishers could opt-out, the representatives suggested that there was no existing option to do this.

When asked to clarify on the matter further, the representatives offered an unequivocal indication that Share Play will work on all released PS4 games, providing they do not need an additional peripheral.

However, built into the system is a "censor" option for publishers, which was intended to circumvent spoilers being revealed to a guest console. Though it was thought this censor would be limited to certain scenes only, Activision appears to have extended it across an entire game.
So far no official comments from Sony or Activision on why this was done, and on word yet if other publishers will soon do the same.

Nov 05, 2014 - 10:15 AM - by garyopa

When GTA V launches in a few weeks finally on next-gen PS4, XB1 consoles, you will be able to experience GTA V in a whole new light by playing the game in very first time in 'First Person' mode.

If you played GTA V already on the current-gen and been thinking of skipping it on next-gen when it comes it, because it just the same old game, you might think it over as now the next-gen version of GTA V will have an 'first-person' view that you can use both in normal quests and online across the network, giving you a whole new way to experience the look and feel of playing Grand Theft Auto V.

Presenting Grand Theft Auto V: First Person Experience, the first footage of the new first person mode available exclusively in the new versions of Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

This new mode shows players the host of changes made to the game to accommodate this new perspective, including the creation of an optional first person cover system, a new targeting system, a more traditional FPS control scheme, and integrating thousands of new animations into the existing game. It's also available at the touch of a button so you can easily switch back and forth between perspectives.

First person mode will be available in both GTAV and GTA Online.

Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC features hundreds of additions and enhancements including 1080p resolution at 30FPS on PS4 and Xbox One (4K compatible on PC).

Grand Theft Auto V for will be available on Xbox One and PS4 November 18th, 2014 and on PC January 27th, 2015.
So after watching the 'teaser video' below, what do you think will this 'new FP mode' make you pick up GTA again and play it?

PLEASE NOTE: If the above 'video is BLACK', its because you are 'not signed-in' with Google or under the age of 18, Rockstar will NOT allow us to publicly allow this video to play without an graphical content 'age-gate' to make sure you will not be upset over viewing it!

Sony looking to use Microsoft's DRM 'PlayReady'

Nov 03, 2014 - 6:12 PM - by garyopa
Back in 2011, Sony licensed Microsoft's DRM 'PlayReady' and today they advertised a Job Vacancy.

The primary role involves securing a well-known DRM solution to be used on PS3, PS4 & Vita for multimedia applications. You will be part of a small team composed of other software engineers in London

A while ago Sony licensed the multimedia DRM system called 'PlayReady' from Microsoft and now they are hiring someone to make it 'secure' for their PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PSVita platforms.

The primary role involves securing a well-known DRM solution to be used on PLAYSTATION®3, PlayStation®4 and PSVita for multimedia applications. You will be part of a small team composed of other software engineers based in London. You will work with this team to enhance the implementation and support integration. This is a contract role with the possibility to extend its duration.


  • Porting and securing of software components on multiple platforms such as PLAYSTATION®3, PlayStation®4 and PSVita.
  • Keeping implementation on target to meet a tight schedule
  • Supporting the integration of software components with client applications being designed and implemented on parallel schedules


The following skills are required for the role:

  • Advanced knowledge in C/C++ with at least 3 years' experience
  • Advanced knowledge in security models and encryption systems
  • Good knowledge in any software configuration management systems
  • Ability to work to strict deadlines without direct supervision
Not sure why Sony is now finally securing to use this DRM system for their content system, but most likely it is related to their project to stream TV channels soon, and seems alot of content comes already encoded with this system from content providers from Microsoft's Azure cloud servers, so most likely Sony is just going to grab the content from the same source as such they need their consoles to play back the 'PlayReady' digital data, which they planned for a while ago, with already license deals in place back over three years ago.

* Update Incoming *

It has come to our attention that there are minor bugs.

We try to test as many on as many consoles and languages as we can, but some times things can creep up from time to time.

Bugs that will be squashed:

  • Bug – spanish lang
  • Bug – gameOS flag working if fw reinstalled or updated only
  • Cobra Bug – less plugins loaded (not a bug actually but being fixed all the same)

(Rebug 4.65.2 When ready)

To clarify why there are bugs:

This version of Rebug was NOT intended for release yet.

We still have/had lots of testing to do, but seeing the leech(s) (BobbyBangin) at saw a cached version of this post that we were getting ready for a release and decided without asking us to just post the news and circulate a non final PUP.

Sony's PlayStation Experience Tickets Now On Sale

Oct 23, 2014 - 12:11 PM - by garyopa
Coming Soon in Early December an Special PlayStation Only Event in Las Vegas

You'll soon be able to buy tickets from The Venetian's website beginning this Friday, October 24. One-day passes for Sony's PlayStation Experience will cost $50, while two-day passes will run you $90.

Since there is not much in the way of games you will be able to buy this holiday season for your PlayStation 4 console, Sony is trying to pull all their fans together for an big two-day event to be held in Las Vegas were you will be able to listen to speeches from developers and try out lots of new video games that are in the works for year 2015, but the event will be limited space so grab your tickets early!

The ticket itself is not what will get you into the exhibit hall; once you've gotten your hands on one, you'll need to take the ticket and a government-issued photo ID to a Venetian/Palazzo box office between December 4 and December 7 to receive a wristband. Alternatively, you can pick up your wristband (using your ticket and ID) outside the Sands Expo Hall C on December 6 or December 7.

Sony announced PlayStation Experience earlier this month as a "massive" two-day community event in Las Vegas. Taking place December 6-7, Sony says it will be an "unprecedented" event that offers attendees the chance to play unreleased games and attend panels and keynotes featuring members of the games industry. On a recent podcast, Sony's Scott Rohde teased, "This is an event for the fans, and I am so incredibly geeked about it. We're gonna show you a bunch of stuff that maybe we shouldn't show you yet."

Although you won't be able to try games or get your hands on the free swag that will be available at the show without attending, you will be able to take in at least some of the event from home. Sony plans to offer live video from the event, though it hasn't provided specifics as of yet.

The same goes for exactly what games, publishers, and panels will be at the show--you'll have to buy tickets knowing very little about what you're getting into. Sony hasn't indicated how many tickets will be available, but it did say that those hoping to sit for the opening keynote address will need to be among the first 5,500 to enter the building. Seating will be first-come, first-served.
So are you planning on traveling to Las Vegas to soak in the warmth of PlayStation Love for 2 days?

PlayStation 4 Outsells Xbox One in September NPD

Oct 18, 2014 - 11:55 AM - by garyopa
Destiny is the #1 Selling Game for Month of September

The PlayStation 4 came out on top in US sales despite Microsoft offering a free game to Xbox One buyers.

This week the NPD results came out for previous month of September, as again the PlayStation 4 is on top of charts, outselling the Xbox One, and Destiny is of course #1 game, and Nintendo is bragging their sales are still up by 50%.

Before the NPD sent out its report, Sony issued a statement saying PS4 was once again the top-selling console, and that it's been the most popular platform for playing Destiny. There was some belief that Xbox One might come out on top (following a prediction from analyst Michael Pachter), thanks to the free game promotion Microsoft offered, but that didn't turn out to be the case.

Nintendo also offered a statement on the month's sales primarily focusing on the success of the 3DS and the new Super Smash Bros. As for Wii U itself, sales saw an increase of almost 50 percent over August.

"The launch of Activision-published and Bungie-developed Destiny in September 2014 proved successful in a number of ways: year-to-date through September data it is the top-selling video game on a unit basis, making it the most successful launch of the year so far as well," wrote NPD analyst Liam Callahan. "But an even more prestigious feat was the fact that Destiny had the best launch month of all-time for any new IP in video game software."

The list of top-selling games below only accounts for new, physical copies. You'll notice it shows Destiny sold better on Xbox One than it did on PS4, but there are two factors to keep in mind regarding something Sony said today. One is that any copies sold as part of the PS4 Destiny bundle are not counted (bundled software is never tracked by the NPD), and Sony's statement about PS4 being the top console for Destiny notes that it's true worldwide.

The NPD list also combines sales of all platforms that a game is available on; if it did not, Hyrule Warriors (190,000 copies sold) would have made the top ten. Mario Kart 8 sold 60,000 copies during the month, bringing its total to more than 1.2 million.

  • Destiny (XBO, PS4, 360, PS3)
  • Madden NFL 15 (360, PS4, PS3, XBO)
  • FIFA 15 (PS4, 360, PS3, XBO, Wii, PSV, 3DS)
  • Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS)
  • Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (PS4, XBO, PC)
  • NHL 15 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
  • Minecraft (360, PS3)
  • The Sims 4 (PC)
  • Disney Infinity 2.0 (360, PS3, NWU, PS4, XBO)
  • Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (PS4, 360, PS3, XBO, PC)

In a follow-up statement, Microsoft offered the following quote regarding September NPDs:

"We believe this will be one of our biggest holiday seasons ever. We're offering great Xbox One bundles aligned with the most anticipated game launches of the year, including Assassin's Creed Unity, Sunset Overdrive, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and incredible deals for fans. Combined with blockbusters like Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Grand Theft Auto 5, Destiny, and Forza Horizon 2, we are committed to making Xbox One a great place to play this holiday."
Well, its going to be a big battle this holiday season for all the big 3 gaming companies, so it will be nice battle to watch.

Assassin's Creed Unity is LOCKED to 900p/30fps on PS4

Oct 06, 2014 - 2:36 PM - by garyopa
Ubisoft locked both versions at the same spec 'to avoid all the debates and stuff'

Assassin's Creed Unity will run at 900p/30fps on both PS4 and XB1, Ubisoft has confirmed, with the publisher opting to aim for platform parity to avoid discussion over any differences in performance.

Tons of angry PlayStation 4 fans of the Assassin's Creed series are cancelling their pre-orders and ranting on social networks, after Ubisoft has confirmed that on purpose they locked the Unity version on PS4 to 900p/30fps so it can match the horrible performance of the Xbox One platform as their developers could not get it 1080p, and they didn't want debates over having 1080p only on the PS4.

"We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff," senior producer Vincent Pontbriand told while explaining that it's the consoles' CPUs - not the GPU - that prevents Ubisoft Montreal from improving the game's performance.

"Technically we're CPU-bound," he said. "The GPUs are really powerful, obviously the graphics look pretty good, but it's the CPU [that] has to process the AI, the number of NPCs we have on screen, all these systems running in parallel."

"We were quickly bottlenecked by that and it was a bit frustrating, because we thought that this was going to be a tenfold improvement over everything AI-wise, and we realised it was going to be pretty hard. It's not the number of polygons that affect the framerate. We could be running at 100fps if it was just graphics, but because of AI, we're still limited to 30 frames per second."

Last year's Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag also shipped at 900p/30fps on both PS4 and Xbox One. A post-release patch, however, bumped the PS4 version to 1080p. Ubisoft has given no indication that it has plans to do the same for Unity.
So they did this not to have 'debates', well it didn't work out too well for them, they ended up with huge fanboy shitstorm instead!
