WipEout OMEGA Collection arrives 6 June 2017 – Malaysia

I remember the #Playstation 1 version of this game & it was pretty good. SNES gamers might call it FZero on speeder steroids with an awesome rave soundtrack!! haha Anyways Playstation has put together this OMEGA collection and is available 6th June 2017!! What a classic title to get remastered & a 2017 upgrade! It was also mentioned that the PS4 Pro version might push the frame rate to 60 fps!! huhu

As the pack says “Collection” – expect it to feature all the content from “WipEout HD Fury” and “WipEout 2048”, contains 26 reversible circuits, 46 unique ships, a ton of game modes and some new and classic music tracks!! Oh yea!!

Here is the official word from PlayStation Asia.

About “WipEout Omega Collection”
A name synonymous with PlayStation®, “WipEout” is the rapid combat racer that defies gravity and defines generations.

Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – Malaysia

The Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – Malaysia dubbed​ #TheForceis40 event – is happening right now at the Blue & Orange Atrium at Sunway Pyramid. The Orange Atrium is where all the Brands are participating (as in the photos – Hasbro, Hot Wheels, Royal Selangor etc. The Blue Atrium is where the Fan Communities will be having their activities this weekend.

The schedule as stated in the first 2 shots. After last years #GoRogueMY Rogue One movie event, it’s great to see another Star Wars event so soon 🙂

Full album here on Facebook: Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – MALAYSIA.

My Top 5 most impressive stuff today were:
1) The Lego displays by the LUG of Malaysia​. Inspired the photographer in me 😀

2) #HotWheels Tracks to try!! 

 

3) That NEW Royal Selangor​ #RoyalSelangor #Pewter #MillenniumFalcon Millennium Falcon with retractable landing gear!! OMG a gorgeous RM2,200!

4) That NEW Royal Selangor Pewter #LukeSkywalker lightsaber! Beautiful!!

5) Glad to see PlayStation Asia​ there with the #PS4 with #StarWarsBattleFront demo stations & Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens. 6 Stations to try them but the MOST IMPRESSIVE was the ability to try the #PSVR demo mission on Star Wars Battlefront​! Get in the cockpit of the classic T-65 X-Wing! Fly thru space with Red Squadron, back at your R2 unit, look down at your pilot suit, your boots, your gloves, your X-Wing dash board…. and even WATCH YOURSELF BREATHE!! It was amazing!!

So don’t forget to swing by this gigantic fan event. Almost all the Star Wars fan communities will be present & running their own activities on the weekend. Despite this being a fan event – official recognised (by Lucasfilm Ltd) groups such as The 501st Legion Malaysia Garrison, The Rebel Legion Malaysia Outpost, Fightsaber Malaysia and Star Wars Malaysia Fan Club will be in attendance! “Today will be a day long remembered!”

Gong Xi Fa Chai Luncheon with Playstation

16486905_1403189916392356_5229362412697127898_o_resizeSo fortunate to be invited by PlayStation Asia to a special CNY makan makan. PlayStation Asia Regional Head of Product Management, Mr. Arata Naito, was present to answer any questions we had about 2017. It wouldn’t be just your average PlayStation event if there were no announcements or advance demos. Got a chance to try out 3 games there too.

16463554_1403190309725650_899580824618869940_o_resizeFirst is the much anticipated Horizon Zero Dawn huhu which is an open world action RPG. All the hype is high as Horizon Zero Dawn won Best Original Game at the Game Critics Game Critics Awards 2015 & 2016. The country side environment looks like a page out of middle-earth! It’s also hard to not think that when the main character, heroine Aloy, draws a bow as ranged weapon. 3rd-person player games with Bows are just so intriguing to me!! This action RPG is a PlayStation exclusive & will be released 28 Feb 2017. The game is developed by Guerrilla Games who is best know for their Killzone game series. 16664986_1403189963059018_3463836743865071526_o_resize

Second was Nioh, which was a dark, samurai action RPG set in the 1600s Sengoku period fighting lotsa ‘yokai’ / supernatural foes in 3rd person fashon. This game is developed by Team Ninja & published by Koei Tecmo… some legendary gaming names there! Team Ninja is famous for the sexy fighting game Dead or Alive & … the Ninja Gaiden series. When Koei + 3rd person is mentioned I can’t help but think Dynasty Warriors / Samurai Warriors series. Yes it did turn out that way but with more gorgeous graphics, more skilled gameplay and tough ass baddies to beat. “Tough”? It’s “Ninja Gaiden + Tecmo” tough to beat… if u get my drift. 16463658_1403189896392358_1996014426530068550_o_resize

Third was the Singapore developed Stifled for the VR. This thriller brought a new dimension to suspense & fear by only giving you echolocation to navigate your way in the dark surroundings of this VR environment. That’s some pretty cool inovation & story telling there. Feels so much like Daredevil’s radar sense… sonar abilities… just minus that Ninja training by Stick, to kickass! haha Mr. Justin Ng from Gattai Games was present all the way from Singapore to answer anything we had to ask about the production of the game as well as developing a game for the VR. 16463057_1403190079725673_7931893669677757713_o

Nice afternoon. Looking forward to more PlayStation events in 2017!

Full album here: Chinese New Year Luncheon with Playstation

#Playstation #PS4 #SonyPlaystation #PlaystationVR #HorizonZeroDawn #Nioh #Stifled #HiltonParkingRate #PopCultureFun #PopCultureFunMY #Console

*This was held in Hilton PJ, parking rate was horrific RM7 per hour – max flat rate RM30. Unless u went there for a dinner function, you’d be paying RM7 per hour or flat RM30. This is the absolute MOST amount I’ve had to pay for any event coverage. And I thought Mandarin Oriental KL flat rate of RM13 was expensive!! -__-

Final Fantasy XV Launch 2016 – Malaysia

_dsc6565-2The started out with video game event revival with the Street Fighter V launch in January for the PS4 at Bangsar APW. Then following the course of the year we had the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End mid night launch in Sunway Pyramid then Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare midnight launch in Galactic Laser, Sunway Pyramid_dsc6568-2

After an already exciting year for PlayStation Asia console fans… came the even bigger event! A worthy finale for 2016… in which we can celebrate the return of console events! _dsc6581-2

_dsc6570-2

Fun and relevant freebies xD

huhu We heard that only us, in Malaysia, got this event launch!! Oh yea! Yet even more to thank Mr. Wan Hazmer for… besides teh tarik + roti canai in the back streets of FFXV 😀 img_20161128_212612-2

Yes, he is the home town hero… the man of the hour… ‘home boy’ does country proud in Japan!! It was great to see him in person at the event talking to friends & fans. He was certainly the man of the hour and it was great to see him mingling with attendees.

Not only has he put Malaysia on the map in the gaming world, he now has even introduced the gaming world to our culture… food & drink… which is SO Malaysia xD A really Malaysian past time!! Hahaha “Jalan-jalan cari makan”, “In Malaysia we only have 1 meal… with short breaks in between!” haha Keep up the good work Mr. Wan Hazmer! It was a very nice community touch to have this event in Malaysia & have our local hero in attendance – Thank you Sony PlayStation.

_dsc6575-2

Familiar faces in the crowd! It’s the Comic Fiesta Team!

Now this is not just a random place to have the event. These specific places were selected because 1. It had to be a place that could stay open after 10pm because it’s a midnight launch… so the crowd has to be there till past the stroke of midnight. So the selected venues must be able to sustain the air-con for the entire duration of the event. 2. location selected had to have thematic significance or content significance! i.e. Call of Duty midnight launch was held at Galactic Laser!

So with the selection of GSC Maxx aka the ORIGINAL (first) IMAX cinema in Malaysia… we knew it was going to be some extra SPECIAL content install for us. What’s the hype with this being the first / original IMAX hall? Well firstly, because it was built with an optimal IMAX blueprint spec and not built on an improvised space . This screen is a 3 storeys high (yes, as in a house with 3 levels high), and it has a large seating capacity, in this case 488pax and the screen + seat tilt in an angle that allows more ‘sweet-spot’ viewing… with less distortion (yes I am a hard core movie buff haha).

img_20161128_214037-2

488 seating capacity at the GSC Maxx hall at Berjaya Times Square!! Gigantous!!

_dsc6601-2

Now that it is a GSC Maxx hall, I am not so sure about the quality of projection but I know that the view angle is great & the sound system should be great, if still maintained properly 🙂

Anyways, back to the event haha at the right time, all the attendees were ushered into this gigantous hall where the PlayStation, the game creators and Mr. Wan Hazmer has lotsa goodies for us!! The first glimpses to welcome us was the glorious 4K game trailers and footage!! You really had to be there to see it!! img_20161128_213606-2

So here are the sights from the very very special FFXV launch at GSC Maxx, Berjaya Times Square, 28 Nov 2016! For the full album check out our FB page: FFXV Launch 2016 – Malaysia

img_20161128_210717-2*Finally just wanted to acknowledge & honour one of the big influences from inside PlayStation SEA regional office who always vouches for Malaysia, Mr. Teoh. He has come a long way since the Malaysia office in late 2000s. He continues to strive to have events for the gaming community here in Malaysia. If you remember the Street Fighter IV competition at E-Curve back in 2008, then you have an idea of where his heart is 🙂 If you’re a PlayStation gamer and you see him at an event, do go up & thank him 🙂

Looking forward to more gaming events in 2017!!


Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Midnight Launch – Malaysia

Just when I was thinking… it’s been a big gap from the last gaming event, the Uncharted 4 midnight launch Malaysia, came the news of the launch of the next chapter in the EPIC first person shooter games – Call of Duty! Well for me I wasn’t feeling the gap that much because I managed to head down to Singapore for South East Asia’s premiere gaming event -Game Start Asia 2016! huhu That was fun & yet another LEGIT “Convention” in Singapore.

Anyhow I was starting to feeling the gap for the Malaysian friends & fans as maybe its more than time to get out & about again! Klang Valley folks were fortunate get a bonus *Pokemon Go Launch (fan event) which was parked at the recent Cosplay Corner. But other than that it was kinda quiet. Then came the news from PLAY Interactive of confirmed date, time & VENUE of the next game launch. Woo hoo! Great timing.

*On another note, thanks to the guys (fan event) who were diligent & relentless (I might add) at pursuing official endorsement for the local 3DS Community – we have the chance to experience a bonus gaming event later this month. More of that in the next article!*

Now, Call of Duty & Medal of Honour were games I thoroughly enjoyed playing on the Playstation 2 (PS2). It really fueled my undiscovered passion for first person shooters & the desire to be a head-shot sniper! xD The only things to fear in the early games were MG42 & tanks. Anyhow after those were over & the life of the PS2 had end I had no desire nor the extra funds to buy the next gen console (then) Playstation 3. Then while hanging out at the uber cool – Outpost Cafe at Cineleisure Damansara (now E@curve), good friend of mine ask to play the latest rendition of Call of Duty called Modern Warfare. OMG I got hooked & just had to get a PS3 to play this game & have continued ever since. No Playstation 4 for me yet… but I guess some where down the line.

==========================

So yet another EPIC franchise launches it next chapter & HURRAY for the local fans & friends that we get to get out & geek a out again! 

Looks like the organisers like Sunway Pyramid! But the cool twist this time is that it would take place in GALACTIC LASER, Sunway Pyramid! The theme made sense, the place was relevant & the space was good! Great choice guys!

So folks who had pre-ordered their game could come to the event to pick up their game as soon as the stroke of midnight. By pre-ordering you got 5 extra goodies to take home – a movie size 2-sided glossy poster, a tee shirt,  a tactical themed watch, Bonus Map “Terminal” and Zombies in Spaceland!

There were 3 bundle of the game:
1) Standard Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc)
2) Legacy Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc) + Modern Warfare Remastered (Digital Download)
3) Legacy Pro Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc) + Modern Warfare Remastered (Digital Download) + Season Pass + Collectible Steelbook + Digital Game Soundtrack + Additional Digital Content 

 

BONUS TREAT
For those who attended there were 2 major bonus treats! First it was the PLAY & Redeem challenges. You needed to complete 4 simple tasks to get 4 stamps on your card in which you could later redeem a Playstation goodie bag 🙂 

The next treat was epic – all attendees would get the chance to play Galactic Laser … team group death-match for free!! All you had to do was to line up & wait your turn. Of course each game last 10 minutes so it was limited to how much time that was available for everyone to play. But all in all it had the right theme & the right GAMERS!

For the full album of photos go to our FB album: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Midnight Launch – Malaysia

*HINT*: A little blue bird told me that there will another Playstation 4 title launch event before the month is over!! So we gamers get 3x more in November! Reward for waiting so long? Maybe hohoho!

A BIG thanks to PLAY Interactive Asia & Playstation Asia  for organising this event. Will be looking forward to the next one!

Am looking forward to a very exciting trip to @GameStartAsia 2016, Game Start 2016 #GameStart2016

===========================

Malaysia, 8th September, 2016 – Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SIES) today announced that a new slimmer and lighter PlayStation®4 (PS4™) (CUH-2000 series) computer entertainment system with a 500GB HDD will become available in Malaysia starting from Mid-October 2016 at suggested retail price (SRP) of MYR1,349*1

The internal architecture of the new PS4 system has been revamped, reducing its volume by more than 30% compared to the previous models and reducing its weight by 25% and 16% compared to the first (CUH-1000 series) and current  (CUH-1200 series) models respectively. Also, the new PS4 system is more energy efficient, as the power consumption has been cut by more than 34% and 28% compared to the very first and current models.

Comparison between the original PS4, the new PS4 Slim & the PS4 Pro

The form factor of the new system inherits the slanted body design of the previous models, with the foreside and backside of its body slightly angled. The corners are trimmed and curved, giving it a softer impression that would appeal to a wider range of audience.  The new simple look, with gloss finished PS family mark designed on the center of the top surface, will fit perfectly wherever it is placed.

Comparison between the original PS4, the new PS4 Slim & the PS4 Pro

Furthermore, looking ahead to the future of imaging technology, all PS4 systems including the new slimmer model and PlayStation®4 Pro will support HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging technology*4, which enables the reproduction of brightness and darkness while realizing a much wider range of colors. Users who own an HDR-compatible TV will be able to enjoy supported games and other entertainment content with visuals that are more realistic, strikingly vivid and truer to the way the human eye sees the real world.

Approaching its third year since launch, PS4’s games portfolio is stronger than ever, and will continue to expand with highly anticipated titles from third-party developers and publishers as well as from SIE Worldwide Studios such as FINAL FANTASY XV (SQUARE ENIX CO., LTD.), Gravity Rush 2, Horizon Zero Dawn (SIE WWS), Ryu Ga Gotoku 6 Inochi no Uta.(SEGA Games Co., Ltd.), The Last Guardian (SIE WWS), Thumper (Drool).

Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Singapore Branch (SIES) announced today at “2016 PlayStation® Asia Conference” that PlayStation® 4 Call of Duty®: Infinite Warfare Bundle Pack will be available in Malaysia at SRP MYR1,649 from 04th November 2016. The bundle includes one 500GB PlayStation®4 System (Jet Black, CUH-2006AB01), one copy of PlayStation® Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition and one voucher card of PlayStation®Plus 12-month Subscription.

SIE is focused on expanding PS4’s ecosystem by introducing new system features like HDR, launching high quality exclusive PlayStation games, pushing innovation in gaming through PlayStation®VR, and building online services offered on PlayStationTMNetwork.
