A new behind the scenes video for the highly-anticipated PS4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son has been released.  In this video, we take a closer look at the PS4’s Dual Shock 4 Controller.  Now, from far away the DS4 may look identical to the three Dual Shock controllers which had come before it, but upon a closer look you can see that Sony did a lot to change the Dual Shock’s form factor both to cater to gamer’s needs and to improve the product in a way that takes full advantage of the improved power of the PS4.

So how does this controller handle a game like inFAMOUS: Second Son?  Let’s find out.

inFAMOUS: Second Son is coming February 2014 exclusive to the Playstation 4.

rain Developer Diary Part 2: The Music of rain August 23, 2013

I think that a huge part of the charm that rain’s trailers have had has been from the game’s music.  To me, the game’s music complements the visuals perfectly, and in the second Developer Diary for rain the game’s developers chose to focus on what went into the game’s musical production.

This video shows more than just musicians recording, it shows many of the decisions that the audio director had to make.  They chose to keep the famous song “Clair de Lune” as the game’s main theme (which is the song playing during the game’s trailers) but made the decision to add a female vocal track to the song.

Personally my favorite part of the video is a bit where you can also see some of the game’s early artwork rendered as a beautiful watercolor animatic.  That animatic was instrumental in assisting in setting the musical tone.  Take a look for yourselves!

rain is coming in October 2013 exclusive to the Playstation 3.
