14w ago - Evolution Studios Community Development Manager Jamie Brayshaw is here with some fresh PS4 videos for the weekend showcasing Driveclub 1080p footage on PlayStation 4 below!
To quote: Thanks to everyone that played the DRIVECLUB demo at Gamescom! There were some blindingly quick racers, and even though my team weren't the fastest overall, we earned the most fame points to win the challenge.
So that means that the Gamescom trailer plays out with "Like A Boss" winning, which I'm obviously very happy about! Also, in case you were wondering, the music track is Be Here Now by Hybrid (The Qemists remix).
The reaction we got at the show was fantastic, with over a thousand people trying the demo each day. I spoke to a lot of people playing the game and the key thing that stood out and really connected with people was the concept of "always having something to play for" and "always contributing to the success of your club."
The fastest racers loved that they could aim for first place on the leaderboard and still play over and above that to beat every challenge in every event.
21w ago - Sanuk Games Manager Yan Marchal announced today that Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign rises on PS3 tomorrow in 1080p.
To quote: I'm ecstatic to announce that Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign shall be brought to life in the US on PlayStation Store for PS3 on July 16th, pinned with a bargain price of only $5.99.
Originally developed by Space Monkeys International, a studio renowned for their top-end hidden object adventure games, Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign comes to PS3 in an all-new high-definition edition with native 1080p graphics.
When the game was first presented to me, I was impressed by its art quality, level of polish, and amount of content that were clearly above genre standards. Since then, most PC users have echoed my feelings with high ratings, while also praising the game's original soundtrack and spellbinding atmosphere. The availability of yet-to-be-used HD 1080p graphics for all scenes further convinced me that a PS3 edition was simply necessary.
The game has you play as James Voodoo as he investigates mysterious attacks through the forsaken hamlet of Ravenhill, the wealthy city of Richtown, and a variety of breathtaking sceneries inspired by major fiction genres: adventure, film noir, thriller, steampunk, and more!
74w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared details today of Okami HD from Comic-Con: Amaterasu Unleashed which includes PlayStation Move support and 1080p!
To quote: San Diego Comic-Con doesn't want for distractions - famous graphic novelists greet their fans, uber-limited edition collectables line sprawling tables, and cosplayers roam the halls by the thousands.
When I learned that Capcom would be showing Okami HD at their booth, all of those attractions quickly dropped in importance; I knew where my Comic-Con would kick off.
Mere seconds after the doors of the San Diego Convention Center opened for business, Capcom's Tristan Corbett handed me a PlayStation Move motion controller and I beheld Japanese sun goddess-turned-canine Amaterasu in full HD glory for the first time.
Not all HD remakes are created equal, but Hexa Drive's effort clearly isn't just a soulless re-processing. With the PS3's hardware muscle to play with, they're working to improve draw distance and load times over the PS2 original.
The cel-shaded visuals up-rez quite nicely, with the game's iconic bold, black outline strokes popping off the HD display. All cutscenes have been fully recreated, and areas of the game that the team felt weren't...

91w ago - Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price has announced today that the Ratchet & Clank Collection for PS3 is going 1080p with multiplayer included!
To quote: It's amazing that it's been almost 10 years since the release of the original Ratchet & Clank on PlayStation 2.
A lot has changed since 2002, but your loyalty to our furry Lombax and his faithful robot companion has endured. As we reach the 10th Anniversary of Ratchet & Clank, we wanted to commemorate the achievements of the Ratchet & Clank saga.

In addition to a full 1080p HD remaster (720p stereoscopic 3D support) of all three games and the inclusion of three Platinum Trophies, we're happy to confirm that the online competitive multiplayer from Up Your Arsenal will be included. Now you can check out the acclaimed multiplayer mode that many of you didn't get to experience the first time on PS2.
