31w ago - Eurocom Product Manager Rob Matthews has posted up a 007 Legends video today celebrating Bond history with PS3-exclusive multiplayer characters!
To quote: 007 Legends is a videogame celebration of the James Bond film franchise's 50th anniversary, featuring five classic Bond movie-inspired missions along with a downloadable mission based on the next Bond film, Skyfall.
Skyfall is an integral part of 007 Legends story, the action from the film bookends the other missions and we've built the overarching narrative of the game around a pivotal event that occurs early on in the film.
EON Productions, the production company who produce the James Bond films, have been fantastic partners to work with, granting us exclusive behind-the-scenes access to many of the film's stunts and action sequences, allowing us to recreate those breathtaking moments you'll see on the big screen within the game as fully interactive segments within the game.
During the Skyfall mission, we visit two striking locations that have been faithfully recreated from the film, as well as some fantastic acting talent including Daniel Craig as Bond that will appear on the big screen when the film is released on November 9th, 2012.

85w ago - Sony VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has shared a video below in celebration of PlayStation Nation's Long Live Play with fans today.
To quote: Hello PlayStation Nation, Early last month, with some ambiguity, we announced that we were looking for a few good gamers to assist us with a special assignment related to our freshly launched Long Live Play campaign.
Long Live Play honors gamers from all walks of life and recognizes you for making PlayStation who we are today.
We asked members of the PlayStation Nation to email us with pictures of themselves holding their PS3 controller and in 30 words-or-less, describe how they epitomize the ultimate PlayStation gamer. I know that PlayStation gamers are some of the most impassioned fans in the world, but I was blown away by the thousands of responses that flooded my email.
After weeks of anticipation, I can finally reveal the complete ambition behind Long Live Play. I'm delighted to announce that we've painstakingly reviewed each submission and selected a dozen or so die-hard gamers to represent the PlayStation Nation in a brand new Long Live Play campaign that will air on national TV starting October 5th....
