PLAYSTATION PLUS ROMANCES GAMERS THIS FEBRUARY
Sony is adding six new games to their already bursting roster of free games for PlayStation Plus members this February.
The roster includes plenty of games that myself and many people I know hadn’t had time to pickup, so it’s especially tantalizing next month.
The games are:
- Outlast (PS4)
Hell is an experiment you can’t survive in Outlast, a first-person survival horror game. As investigative journalist Miles Upshur, explore Mount Massive Asylum and try to survive long enough to discover its terrible secret … if you dare.
- Metro: Last Light (PS3)
It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…
- PayDay 2
PayDay 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PayDay crew – Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains – as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree.
- Remember Me (PS3)
Remember Me is a 3rd person action adventure where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories.
- Street Fighter X Tekken (PS Vita)
A dream collaboration between the two biggest fighting game franchises is now a reality! A deluge of highly demanded characters join the fray in this tag team-based game! The second round of this war begins now!
- Mod Nation Racers: Road Trip (PS Vita)
Welcome to the never-ending season of ModNation kart racing, where competitive racing and community creativity collide. Use common gestures to create or edit your Mod, Kart, or Track. If that wasn’t enough, you will have full access to all creations made on the PS3.

RUMOR: PS1/PS2 GAMES HEADING TO PLAYSTATION 4
And most importantly, not through PlayStation Now but through local emulation with HD enhancements. Excuse me as I’m giddy at the notion of possibly playing Final Fantasy XII in 1080p.
Eurogamer is reporting that backwards compatibility is coming to PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Now is only part of the story. A well-placed source working with Sony’s streaming service reveals that only PlayStation 3 titles are currently scheduled to use the “gameplay over IP” cloud service. PS1 and PS2 titles are set to follow the more conventional route of running locally under emulation on Sony’s latest console - but with the possibility of HD visual enhancements.
Sony is actively pursuing the ability for older titles to run without the blurry upscaling seen on PS3, suggesting that native HD resolutions are being targeted. Assuming this intention carries through to final code, we’ll be seeing an effect similar to the resolution scaling seen on unofficial PC emulation of Sony’s consoles, as well as a great many of the “HD remasters” we saw on PS3 - where original assets were rendered at a higher resolution, often without any actual remastering at all.

SONY SELLS 4.2 MILLION PS4’s IN 2013
Hot on the heals of Microsoft’s announcement, Sony is reporting that they sold more than 4.2 million PS4’s in 2013, surpassing Xbox One sales by nearly 1 million units.
Considering that it took Microsoft and Sony only two months to nearly surpass the Wii-U’s lifetime sales of 4.3 million consoles sold worldwide (as of November 2013), things are looking a little bleak for Nintendo at the moment.

TOMB RAIDER: THE DEFINITIVE EDITION COMING TO PLAYSTATION 4 AND XBOX ONE IN JANUARY
Crystal Dynamics’ critically acclaimed Tomb Raider reboot (a personal favorite of ours) will make its debut on next-gen consoles on January 28.
The new edition is fully rebuilt for next generation consoles, including a new character model for Lara, new TRESS FX technology (for more detailed hair and motion), and reworked shaders and lighting to show off every bead of sweat and drop of blood that Lara exudes.
The Definitive Edition will also include all of the DLC, downloadable versions of the comic, a mini art book, and developer videos.
If you pre-order the game you get limited edition packaging for the art book featuring never before seen concept art. Pre-order now.

AMAZON LEAKS DRIVECLUB’S RELEASE DATE
If the release date listed on Amazon.com is to be believed, Sony’s delayed racing game DriveClub will be released in the U.S. on April 1, 2014.
Originally a PS4-launch title, DriveClub was delayed in October because, according to Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida, ”the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision.”
This would just barely put the game outside of the PlayStation 4 launch window (which covers launch till the end of March) but still would hit the “early 2014” release date they were promising when they delayed the game.
And of course, this could be an April Fool’s joke but Amazon isn’t known for their shenanigans on April 1. Also, April 1 is a Tuesday which is the day that Sony normally releases new games.
Pre-order DriveClub from Amazon and get the Amazon-exclusive instant access to the high-powered Mercedes supercar, access to the RUF RT12 R super car, and a driver level boost.
However, if you’re a PlayStation Plus member you will be able to download DriveClub for free when it launches April 1.
