PS4 ASK Update unlocked the 7th CPU core for gamung

Recent PS4 SDK update unlocked 7th CPU core for gaming
Since launch of PS4 we had many reports from devs that games on PS4 can access only 6 CPU cores, while the other two were dedicated to OS. Here is one of them from GG and their postmortem on making launch game Killzone Shadowfall [full PDF]:

In effort of trying to get at least some performance back against PS4 that took commanding lead with 50% stronger GPU and more dev-friendly memory system, Xbox One team at MS unlocked 7th CPU core [shared between game and some OS services] and added a slight overclocking, which has over the last year provided some wins against PS4 in heavy CPU-processing scenarios. Now it looks like Sony has updated its SDK [as quietly as always] and enabled their developers to also access 7th CPU core. Proof comes from the changelog of the recent update of FMOD, a popular audio gaming middleware.

Firelight Technologies FMOD Studio API
Detailed Revision History

17/11/15 1.07.03 - Studio API patch release (build 69975)


LowLevel API - When using System::recordStart the provided FMOD::Sound can now be any channel count, up/down mixing will be performed as necessary.
LowLevel API - Improved performance of convolution reverb effect when wet is 0 or input goes idle.
LowLevel API - PS4 - Added FMOD_THREAD_CORE6 to allow access to the newly unlocked 7th core. /revision.html
[found by Mabru from B3D]

While MS was very loud with promotion on their SKD updates [they needed a good word mouth this gen], Sony is usually very quiet on their releases, even substantial ones [PSP CPU overclocking abbility, numerous PSP&Vita&PS3 shrinking of OS memory footprint,etc]. On the same page you can find that FMOD got support for 7th Xbone core in January of 2015.

Article inside Dead or Alive Extreme3 not coming to U.S. because of feminism and political correctness

4 people viewing this

| By mr_underground - 10 hours ago

You want the boobs? YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE BOOBS!

The backstory for the Dead or Alive Xtreme video games almost sounds like a parody. No matter how many attack reversals, tag-team combos, or multi-tiered arenas publisher Koei Tecmo crams into the long-running Dead or Alive fighting series, the first thing gamers everywhere associate with it is the massive chests of its female characters.

“In that case, why not ditch all the fighting elements and shift even more focus to the bouncing breasts?” seems to have been the logic behind making Dead or Alive Xtreme Volleyball, the 2003 title that jettisoned male players from the playable cast and plunked the series’ female martial artists on the sand for a mix of sports, mini-games, and bikini dress-up.

But if that all sounds like a joke, the development team team has been laughing all the way to the bank. After strong sales of the original spinoff, Dead or Alive Xtreme got a full-fledged sequel in 2006 and a scaled-down portable version, Dead or Alive Paradise, in 2010.

Koei Tecmo is set to go back to this soft, supple well again with Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, a multi-platform release for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. While the game isn’t quite finished yet, Koei Tecmo has been releasing a steady stream of updates showing off the game’s visuals and gameplay.

Fans in Japan are eagerly anticipating the game’s February 25 release date, when the summery graphics should make the fantasies it’s offering doubly appealing. Gamers in the U.S. and Europe, though, will be left out in the cold, according to this statement made by the developers in response to a Facebook query about Dead or Alive Xtreme 3:

“We do not bring DOAX3 to the west and won’t have any plan change in the future. Thank you for asking.”

“Do you know many issues happening in video game industry with regard to how to treat female in video game industry? We do not want to talk those things here. But certainly we have gone through in last year or two to come to our decision. Thank you.”

The “issues” being referred to are no doubt increased sensitivity in the west regarding how female characters are portrayed in works of fiction, video games included. So while all three prior Dead or Alive Xtreme games were released in North America and Europe, it looks like the third numbered installment is staying exclusive to Japan.

But while Koei Tecmo’s decision of where to release the game is being affected by overseas attitudes, those sensibilities don’t seem to have influenced what content is actually being put into the game itself. The Japanese version of Dead or Alive 3 (which is now the only version) seems to be operating under the nonchalant acceptance in Japanese society that, yeah, most guys enjoy looking at slim, busty women in bikinis.

n any case, Koei Tecmo’s decision not to publish Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 in western territories isn’t going to prevent anyone who really wants to play the game from doing so. Japanese PlayStation 4 software is compatible with consoles sold in North America and Europe, and it’s not like the game’s deep gameplay or rich story require strong proficiency in the Japanese language.

Granted, specially importing the game means western fans will have to pay a few extra bucks, but that really shouldn’t be an issue. Given how very specific Dead or Alive Xtreme’s niche is, price-based demand for the game is far, far less elastic than its stars’ chests.

UPDATE: Championing the game for the North American market is game developer HuniePot, which made a name for itself with its tile matching/adult dating simulator HuniePop, which released last January. Compared to the explicit sexual content of HuniePop, and its currently in-development HunieCam Studio (which invites players to “Become the ultimate smut peddler!”), Dead or Alive Xtreme 3’s scenes of bikini-clad young women frolicking on the sand and relaxing by the poolside seem squeaky clean, and are well within the limits of what HuniePot is comfortable attaching its name to, and the company says it would happily pay Koei Tecmo one million dollars for the rights to publish the game in North America.

On the other side of the Atlantic, Instacodez, an online video game retailer with offices in Dubai and Madrid, is offering twice as much, although without specifying whether its figure is in US dollars or Euros. due-to-issues/

Target.coms #1 Console for Black Friday 2015

8 people viewing this

| By Snow - 24 hours ago

Offering the Uncharted PlayStation 4 bundle for $299.99, the Gears of War Xbox One bundle for $299.99 plus a $60 gift card, and the Super Smash Bros + Splatoon Wii U bundle for $249.99, Target has announced that the Wii U was not only the best-selling console through their website this Black Friday, but also the #1 item overall.

With deals beginning early on Thanksgiving, Target saw its biggest day for online sales yet on Thursday, and the best-selling Black Friday items were highlighted by the retailer:

-Gaming consoles were popular in stores and online, including Nintendo Wii U, which was the top selling item on

-Apple iPads were top sellers in stores and online. On average, Target sold an iPad every second throughout the day on Thanksgiving. Apple Watch was especially popular in stores.

-Movies were a big hit in stores with guests buying more than 3 million on Thanksgiving.

Target CEO Brian Cornell talked about their Black Friday success:

Target got a head start going into Black Friday with the record-breaking launch of Adele’s new album and our ‘10 Days of Deals’ promotion. The momentum continued with our Black Friday presale, and on Thanksgiving, we saw millions of shoppers take advantage of great offers online and in our stores. Overall, the response from our guests has been very positive, with some of the best days we’ve seen on We expect to see the demand continue throughout the weekend and into December as we offer more savings on the year’s most popular gifts, including Star Wars and Apple products.

With such a strong showing at Target this Black Friday, do you think the Wii U could potentially beat the PS4 and Xbox One as the top-selling console for November?

PlayStation Network is down on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Sony has updated its PlayStation status page to confirm the outage, and dozens of people are complaining that they can’t sign into PSN on social media. This downtime is preventing players from enjoying online multiplayer games like Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Destiny: The Taken King, and Star Wars: Battlefront. But the problem is also affecting primarily single-player games that require a connection to PlayStation Network as well as video services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and Hulu Plus. 7/psn-is-down/

It might have been the Dreamcast’s 16th birthday in America a few months back, but today actually marks the console’s full and proper 17th birthday, since it was on November 27, 1998 that the Dreamcast was first released in Japan.

RIP, little guy. Your controller is still a thing of wonder.

Namco Bandais loading screen patent is expiring this Friday

3 people viewing this

| By Da Ill One - 3 days ago

Ever wondered why your typical video game loading screens are filled with lore or random tips? Well, there are plenty of companies who had wanted to put minigames in loading games, but they were unable to do so due to a patent that Namco Bandai has held for the past 20 years since 1995: patent US 5718632 A, which gives them ownership of putting minigames on loading screens. Companies who want to keep players entertained during those dreadful minutes either have to pay Namco Bandai for the right to do, or find some other way to keep people entertained.

However, the good news is that the 20 years are finally up, with the patent expiring this Friday. To celebrate this momentous occasion, a “Loading Screen Jam” will be held on Friday in order to “stick it to the man”, as said by the organisers. The jam is about creating interactive loading screens, or creating games or interactive material based on “infringing the now-defunct patent in any way possible”.

Sony reveals range of playstation vr & controller tracking combinations

2 people viewing this

| By Da Ill One - 3 days ago

User tracking is an essential part of any high end virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD), and PlayStation VR is no different. Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE’s) upcoming device users the PlayStation Camera to track lights that emit from the HMD, much like it does with the DualShock 4 controller and its light bar. The PlayStation 4 can track up to four devices in any combination with this system. Recently, SCE itself has showcased just how varied those combinations can become.

The image above is taken from a slide showing during SCE Technical Account Manager Vernon Harmon’s recent ‘Embrace Virtual Reality with PlayStation VR‘ talk at the 2015 Montreal International Game Summit. It showcases six different combinations of tracked devices. Note that each seems to contain five devices in total, suggesting PlayStation VR itself doesn’t count as one four. One setup includes the HMD and four DualShock 4s, while the rest show various combinations of the HMD, the controller and the PlayStation Move motion controller.

But this isn’t a strict limit, as Harmoned explained: “As you can see from this sampling there are a lot of different combinations of tracked controllers that can give you a number of different multiplayer configurations. And this isn’t even taking to account that you can have a second screen controlled experience on a mobile device that’s used as additional control inputs. And also this is only local control configurations; you could have networked situations that introduce more combinations with other VR headsets and controllers.”

PlayStation VR is set to ship in H1 2016. VRFocus will continue to follow the device closely, reporting back with the latest updates on its progress.

PS4 is two months ahead of the PS2 in sales

3 people viewing this

| By Snow - 3 days ago

Sony’s news this morning that the PS4 had passed 30.2M units sold to consumers is pretty impressive. To truly understand why its a significant feat, we have to look back on Sony’s PS2.

The PS2 came out in 2000 and took 26 months to reach the 30.2M mark for sold to consumers, the PS4 is hitting in 2 months early at 24. To be fair, the PS2 did have one more competitor than the PS4. The Dreamcast, Xbox and GameCube were all vying for the attention of consumers so the PS2’s number could be just as impressive or close to it in that regard.

Of course, the PS2 really took off when the system dropped from $299 to $199 in May 2002. It remains to be seen if Sony will drop the PS4’s price in a similar fashion in 2016, opting for a small $50 cut last month.

Another factor is that the PS2 had a much healthier Japanese console market and still couldn’t reach the PS4’s current sales in the same time period. The PS4 has begun selling a bit better in Japan since its most recent price drop, over 20k per week which is up from 8k-12k per week, so the fact that the PS4 has gotten to 30M off mostly Europe and the US makes this number even more eye catching. Imagine if the PS4 had always been selling a steady rate in Japan? It could already be at 32-34M.

So don’t let anyone tell you the home console is dying out. Sony’s PS4 console is outpacing their greatest console success story, the PS2, by two whole months. The markets for each console are wildly different so this isn’t an entirely an apples-to-apples comparison but the fact that we can say it at all in 2015 after years of naysayers predicting the death of consoles is a positive sign for the whole industry.
