Oooh, a building outline! Terrifying!

This is a pretty good month for PlayStation Plus subscribers, but then again most are. This month's lineup, which will be out and playable for free with an account come October 7, includes:

When you're faced with imminent danger, what's the first thing you do? Do you gear up to fight back? Do you see if you can land the first punch? Or do you take all of your clothing off? I'm guessing that's a pretty uncommon reaction, though it's something you'll get used to seeing on a regular basis within Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed.
The otaku-come-Yakuza special is actually Akiba's Trip 2 in Japan, and it's the first time the series has reached Western audiences, who may or may not have been ready for its bizarre machinations. But for those who were willing and able to take the trip, what awaited them was a strange and colorful world full of plenty to do and discover.
Leading into Tokyo Game Show, Bloodborne producer Masaaki Yamagiwa issued a challenge of sorts to players hoping to best the demo. He and Sony marketing manager Yasuhiro Kitao have since shared the results, as reported by Dua...
Weekends sure are good at going by too quickly. It's only Monday morning and I'm already wishing it were the end of the week. Sony isn't helping, either -- its unlocking online multiplayer for PlayStation 4 owners who aren't subscribed to PlayStation Plus this weekend.
Those users will gain access starting Friday, September 26 at 12:01am Pacific and it'll carry through Sunday, September 28 at 11:59pm Pacific. All you need to do to take part is log into your system during those times -- simple as that. What to play, though.
PlayStation TV launches across North America starting October 14, Sony announced today.
The new set-top box plays a selection of Vita games, PSP titles, PS One Classics, PS3 games via PlayStation Now, and can stream PS4 content via Remote Play.
PS TV will be available standalone for $100 or as part of a $140 bundle, including an 8GB memory card, The LEGO Movie Videogame and a DualShock 3 controller. It comes with 1GB of built-in storage out of the box, meaning that while a pricey memory card isn't necessarily required, folks won't be able to get too far without one.
The device will launch in Europe one month later, crossing the pond on November 14. There, the device will retail for £85/€100 and include a voucher for three digital Vita games: Worms Revolution Extreme, Velocity Ultra and OlliOlli.
While the PS TV will support nearly 700 titles available at launch, it doesn't play everything. You can check out the full list of compatible Vita games right here.
Sony plans to launch an Internet TV service in the US by year's end, Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House told The Wall Street Journal.

Sony's latest PlayStation Network flash sale, which runs until 12:00pm Pacific on Monday, September 22, is centered around racing games for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. Heck, there's even a pair of discounted PlayStation Portable ...
As the virtual reality races wages on, different prototypes keep coming out for Project Morpheus and Oculus Rift. I had yet another chance to play two new titles on Project Morpheus at Tokyo Game Show. While they were certainly unique in their own right, it’s tough not to feel as if Oculus is a bit ahead of Sony’s project.
The first game that we played was The Deep – a shark attack simulator. Ascending from the depths of the ocean in a deep sea cage, I had a first-person view of an angry shark as he tried relentlessly to rip the vessel apart and feast. I’m sure I’m delicious, but I didn’t want it to find out.
I was equipped with a gun that fired flare-like projectiles, which could be aimed based on the positioning of the DualShock 4. Unfortunately, I don’t think these shots were actually effective in any way, and were only included to make the experience interactive. Still, it was fairly incredible to watch the shark lurk, circling the cage and slowly ripping it apart.
By the end of the ride, I made it to the surface intact. The finale held one last, grand attack in which I was sure the demo would end grimly. It didn’t, as the shark gave up and went back to the deep unknown to terrorize other unlucky creatures.
The disc-based version of Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition will release on October 7, 2014.
The game is already available digitally on PS4, priced at $19.99 if you're coming in fresh or $4.99 if you're upgrading from PS3. Sav...
Did you spend any time using PlayStation Now on PS4? Too pricey?

Bloodbornewill launch across North America and Europe starting February 6, Sony has announced. The PlayStation 4-exclusive from Demon's Souls developer From Software will also receive an $80 collector's edition, which includes an ornate case, art book, and a digital soundtrack.
Along with the news comes a new trailer that provides a peek at the title's online functionality.
Maybe it shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but the beings hanging out in the Tokyo Game Show showing of Bloodborne weren't exactly enamored by my presence. That's putting it lightly. Cautiously trekking through the village that the demo thrust me into, I quickly found out that none of them wanted to be my friend, and all of them just wanted me dead.
Some of them succeeded in their mission.
Able to select from a few different characters for the demo, I toggled between a fairly well-balanced build and one that favored agility. Rolling, blocking, and backward jumping to my heart's content, I disposed of these neighborhood crime watch suspicious suspects with relative ease. That is until they decided that group efforts would be more effective. Turns out these freaks of the night know a thing or two about efficiency and teamwork.
It's tough to get a real feel for a title like Bloodborne from a 20-minute demo without time to flesh out a unique character. I mean, it was Souls-esque with more fluid feeling controls in a setting that actually sets itself apart from the Souls series. That's grand; I'm all in. Given that it was my proper introduction to the game (I just kept missing it at other shows), what a fine first impression. But, a cheery visit and maybe a useless housewarming gift would've been a bit more inviting than death ad nauseam. I guess that's just how From Software rolls.
We got an up-close look at the recently announced Dragon Quest Heroes PS4 at Tokyo Game Show today. The Square Enix / Koei Tecmo tag team is exciting enough that Sony is bringing out this silver, slimed PS4 in Japan.
