Sony's launched a new video promoting the PlayStation 4's interface, specifically showing off the ability to pause one's game to check out shared videos and the PlayStation Store. You can hold your game, go start a download, and resume play. Neat.
The other interesting bit of information is the ability to download games in parts, rather than all at once. The handsome gamer in the video, who I've decided to name Chase Glistener, is given a choice to download the single-player and multiplayer aspects of Killzone: Shadow Fall separately, so he can more swiftly jump into a game with his online friend, Romulus Salamander.
There also seems to be some sort of love story between Chase and a woman I'm calling Malfeasance Brickfist. The implication seems to be that playing Knack on PS4 will make all of the girls want to do a kissing on your face.
Of course, the cynic in me suggests nothing in the video will be as sleek and quick as it'll be in real life, but after dealing with the PS3's slow-ass, convoluted interface, it's definitely looking to be a step in the right direction.
Gamemaniac3434 It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 totalDr Mel My mustache froze while walking home from work.

So dragons are evolved forms of ants, spiders and/or wasps ....... what?
Ckarasu Every time I hear "I don't understand why people like _____ game", I get annoyed. Of course you understand, if you've listened to what those people were saying. You just don't agree, and that's A-OK. I HATE Twilight, but I understand why people like it. RadicalYoseph Just tried playing the first Bayonetta game... it was really bad. Honestly I don't understand why Platinum games are so well regarded. None of them are really worthwhile.StriderHoang The first person I block is the person who talks shit about PlatinumTorchman Even though your waifus are shit Darth Wachen Finally, a blog that I can call my own, I feel accomplished somehow. Nekrosys Gonna be honest; this really made my day.
