This ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ wedding is both amazing and weird…

While Japanese traditional-style weddings are still popular, most newlyweds tend to tie the knot with weddings based on Western-style themes and traditions with the bride in a white, flowing gown and the groom in a sharp tux. But what about a wedding that’s espionage-themed?

That’s what this promo for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain attempts to showcase. The video hilariously chronicles the pair’s most important day, from the altar approach to the couple’s profile videos and even the banquet afterwards. The video peaks when the father finally gives away his daughter to his new son-in-law with a ceremonial PlayStation Dual Shock 4 controller, but to an incredibly confused caterer who has no idea what’s going on.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain releases on September 1 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

Sony Japan accidentally erases 20th Anniversary PS4 contest entries

VG24/7:

Sony Japan has accidentally erased all information obtained from PlayStation owners who entered to win a 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4. Those who purchased PlayStation 3, PS4, Vita or Vita TV between December 4 – January 15 were handed a calendar with a code which entered them into the contest.

Somehow, all data collected from the customers was erased and cannot be recovered. Sony didn’t provide information on how the data was lost.

Customers can now re-enter the contest by sending all required information in again.

Whoops.

Godzilla PS3/PS4 game’s release set for July

Godzilla PS3/PS4 game’s release set for July

Anime News Network:

Bandai Namco Games announced it will release the new Godzilla game on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe in July.

The game will get a retail release for PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe and a PlayStation 3 release via the PLAYSTATION Network.

Players will be able to control both the classic TOHO version of the monster and the 2014 American film Godzilla in the game. The game will also feature the Type 92 Maser tanks, Super X 2, Super X III, Super Mecha Godzilla, and MFS-3 — as well as Godzilla’s rivals: King Ghidorah, Biollante, Mothra, Mecha Godzilla, Jet Jaguar, Hedorah, and Destoroyah.

The “ultra-destructive Godzilla action” game commemorates the 60th anniversary of the titular monster by letting you play the monster itself against human civilization, as you clear missions by destroying buildings and weapons. The game recreates the camera angles that invoke the sense of scale, the fireworks explosions, and the latest techniques from the original tokusatsu (special effects) films.

Famitsu magazine described a backstory that takes its cues from TOHO‘s first Godzilla movies: Godzilla, who appeared in Tokyo in 1954 and was brought down by the secret weapon Oxygen Destroyer, has somehow made landfall again. As the players complete missions to destroy civilization, Godzilla will increase size and physical strength. Godzilla starts at 50 meters (164 feet) and can grow to double that size. Players gain points when Godzilla destroys the town, but the resistance from humanity becomes more difficult as the game goes on.

Godzilla for the PlayStation 3 arrived in Japan on December 18 for 7,600 yen (about US$64). The first copies of the game included an early unlock code for the Hollywood Godzilla (2014) as a bonus extra. Pre-orders included one of three randomly distributed “Heat Up Godzilla” reproductions of theater bonus figurines.

Infiniti unveils Concept Vision Gran Turismo: Virtual supercar for Gran Turismo 6

One year in, here’s what readers think of the PlayStation 4

One year in, here's what our readers think of the PlayStation 4

Engadget:

One year ago today, the PlayStation 4 was released in North America. When we took a look at it in our original review, we lauded the console for its “masculine chassis” that could “compete for visual attention” in your living room, a controller that’s “damn close” to being perfect and a user interface that marks a “massive improvement” over the PlayStation 3‘s. But games are the thing that can make or break a system and, while the initial games lineup had a few bright spots, the system had few “satisfying game experiences available at launch.”

Regardless, we called the PlayStation 4 “worth your hard-earned money” and said it was off to “a hell of a start.”

Since then, more games have been released and plenty of people have gotten their hands on a PlayStation 4 — more than 10 million people worldwide, in fact. After such a strong start, have things gotten better? Is it still worth the money? To find out, we turned to you, our readers, who have written some great user reviews to let us know how the system performs in the wild and whether it’s living up to its potential one year after release.

In many respects, our users agreed with our review, with MasterX25 loving its “sleek design” and admdrew saying it “fits well into standard entertainment centers.” Reactions to the controller were a little mixed, with admdrew calling it “almost” perfect, save for some odd button placement and the “weird nature of the touchpad.” But REZIN8 finds it “very small for my hands” with “terrible” battery life. The graphics were more well-received, withlogicrulez calling them “clear and detailed,” while nug050 says, “The gameplay is smooth at any resolution.”

But with a year under the PlayStation 4’s belt, it’s worth talking about the state of its games library. Though Saltank notes it has “some great exclusives,” many users, likeaussiegrossy, were left asking, “Where are the games?” Nug050 says there are “not enough A-List games” and PaulMEdwards also feels there aren’t “a ton of titles available currently,” specifically wishing for “more cooperative 2-player games so my wife … could play with me.”

But he also notes that some “really good ones are coming soon.” In fact, many of you were optimistic about future releases, with admdrew “eagerly awaiting GTA V’s upcoming release.” However, the continued lack of games especially hurts given what Saltank calls a “poor selection of apps,” and MasterX25 says, “I can’t use the PS4 for anything apart from playing games,” while aussiegrossy even feels it’s a bit of “a downgrade.”

Despite this continuing disappointment in the PlayStation 4’s game lineup, reviewers still feel rather magnanimous toward the system as a whole, with ghost616 telling us, “I do not regret buying it.” Meanwhile, in a similar vein, admdrew says, “I haven’t regretted my choice for a second.” With so much on the horizon for the system, year two looks rather promising for those who laid down their hard-earned money, as well as making it a great time for the rest of you to pick up a PlayStation 4.

The PS4’s gamepad now works wirelessly with your PS3

 

PlayStation 3 and a DualShock 4 controller

Engadget:

 

If you’ve wanted to use the PlayStation 4‘s (arguably superior) DualShock 4 controller with a PS3, you’ve so far had to plug it in; that’s not easy if your couch and TV are at opposite ends of the living room. It’s a good thing, then, that Sony has quietly enabled wireless support for the newer DualShock through its latest PS3 firmware update.

It’s still treated as a generic controller without motion or vibration, and game compatibility is somewhat spotty, but it’s now relatively safe to ditch the USB cable while playing. You can check out Reddit’s instructions for pairing the gamepad with your PS3 at the source link, and here’s hoping that it eventually gets first-class treatment.
