What's up, PlayStation-loving friends?

I'm in Los Angeles right now, and the reason--my MISSION for being here--involves you!

Sony has invited PSU to a private PlayStation event tomorrow, and I'm in attendance to bring you guys exclusive coverage of inFAMOUS: Second Son, The Order: 1886, and MLB 14 The Show. We're getting hands-on time, developer interviews, etc., and since I'm here on YOUR behalf, I want to know:

What do YOU want to know?

Fire your questions my way, and I'll get as many answered as I can. Please understand there are some embargoes to deal with, but the moment I'm allowed to tell people about these games and what I've seen, you'll see it on the home page of PSU.

Question for the Order: 1886 devs
When Sony showed the first trailer we saw 4 people shooting stuff which made many people speculate it would be a 4 player co-op game similar to Gears of War or Left 4 Dead. Why did you wait so long to announce it being a single player only title?

The Order:
What is the estimated gameplay time/length? And what is the aim in terms of the structure - e.g. open world third person, or corridor-style a la Uncharted?

MLB The Show:
Will there be gameplay and feature downgrades (e.g. NBA 2k14 PS3 version to PS4 version) for the PS4 version of the game? Or will we see feature parity? Also, please don't include a VC--like system!!!

infamous SS:
What types of side=mission stuff will we get, and will these be substantially more than what we got from the first two games?


THANKS! :D

Mostly just questions for mlb. So here it goes.

What kind of changes and additions have been made to Road to the show?

How have the pitching and hitting mechanics been changed for 2014?

Any new modes added?

Infamous:

Is the destruction aspect permanent? When you destroy a blinding or structure is it gone for good?

MLB 14: The Show

- Will the game run at a locked 60 fps on PS4?
- Has the network code been redone for PS4 or is it similar to the PS3 version?
- Have there been any changes to the character creator/editor in the PS4 version (custom swing animations, facial details, etc)?

MLB '14: The Show Questions:

  1. What's the release date for PS4?
  2. Will custom soundtracks (Sounds of the Show) be present since at some point we're expected to get MP3 playback supported or will it be patched it perhaps?
  3. Has the online servers improved dramatically since we're ushering-in a new generation?
  4. Will you need a PS plus subscription to download user custom rosters or is it just for playing a game online?

Bring it home, PSU! Grill Ramone and the crew about MLB '14!

Infamous & The Order: Are there any features in your game that you (the devs) feel are game changers?

Infamous: Are there any long term effects caused by raising havoc in Seattle?

How is the PS4 hardware and software tools allowing Sucker Punch to bring Seattle to life?

Infamous: One of the many cool things with Infamous 2 was trashing cars around. What is it like to interact with vehicles it Second Son, and are there any new vehicles?

Because not everything should have multiplayer.

The market is already saturated with it, and not everything needs it.

I applaud and welcome games that don't feel the need to include it.

The Order
Is there a main character or will we be able to choose randomly on who we use between the 4 characters?

Would certain levels require certain team members only?

Will there be a leveling up system?

Since there is no multi-player will there at least be co-op?

Do we get to choose how to prepare for a mission?

Infamous
How long is the main campaign?

Any plans for dlc?

Will Cole make an appearance depending what side you play?

Any plans for a future game (extending the series)?

Infamous - how many different powers can we expect? I understand the tight timeframes may have cut online but an Mp mode based around stealing powers and growing stronger (think highlander) would have been really cool.

The order - why no local co-op?

I didn't say I don't like SP only games, yet these guys are the devs of sony and there is no game announced yet for the MP people. Me? I am not one of them , yet they had a perfect opportunity, like Order but It seems they passed this chance. My console choice is % 90 default with sony anyways, but they need to gather more people, hence MP games needed.

Question for mlb team
Have you brought back any of the hof players? Up until a couple of years ago new players where being added each time. Then all of a sudden all of them were removed. The online community are always creating awesome classic rosters but it would be nice to have some preloaded ones. Or maybe an easier way of editing them to get close to true ratings like using total baseball or baseball-almanac.com to enter the numbers. Or, Something similar to the tony larussa baseball games with the second league of all time greats for each team would be a dream.

For Infamous: Any thoughts on creating a new game plus or something so you can play the full game with all your powers? One thing that I kind of didn't like in the past games were when you are near the end it's so short lived you get to play story missions with all your powers.

a little late but here's my questions / interrogations about The Order :
- I was hoping for some istinctive Diablo combat using intuition to aim at enemies as I hate FPS and crosshairs, so my question is : is combat intuitive and fun or heavily tactical requiring precise positioning and precise aiming against fast enemies, do weapons upgrade to make aiming easier or even auto targeting of some sort? to try to be more precise, what I hate in FPS/TPS is enemies always hitting you and you having to shoot 2 or 3 times max before hiding far away to recover, having weapons with a crosshairs but only the center cross hitting enemies even if it seems the crosshairs would allow for some margin of error.
