To quote: Yep, that's right, it's finally here. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been rebuilt from the ground up, and adventurers the world over will be able to begin their journey throughout Eorzea tomorrow with the start of Early Access, ahead of Tuesday's official launch.
It's a massively exciting time for the whole team, and we'd like to thank everybody that's been involved in the beta phases until now. We really appreciate the enormous feedback and support sent along the way.
And for those of you who haven't yet pre-ordered, it's not too late. Order now (or any time before August 27th) and you'll still be able to get in Early Access - a headstart on your new adventure into Eorzea.
Plus, you'll get your hands on some exclusive in-game items:
• Cait Sith Doll Minion: On sabbatical from Shinra Inc., Cait Sith will join your party as a non-combat pet.
• Mog Cap: Show your love of Final Fantasy and strut around the world of Eorzea in this Moogle themed hat. Kupo!
We'd also like to share some of the amazing artwork prepared...
59w ago - Sony Game Director Todd Papy has shared a fresh God of War: Ascension PS3 trailer and early PlayStatio 3 Beta access details today!
To quote: It's been a little over a month now since we announced the God of War: Ascension Beta and we know you've been anxiously awaiting news on when you're going to get a chance to slash, disembowel, and crush your way into the pantheon of Olympus...
The God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta is coming to PlayStation Plus this winter. Keep reading to find out the only other way to get in, and how to get in early.
Some of our fans have already had the chance to play the Desert level of our new multiplayer mode at E3, Gamescom, and PAX. However, the multiplayer action has come a long way since then and this winter, Plus subscribers get to go hands-on with all-new multiplayer action that we haven't yet shown.
If you've been following the Ascension news thus far, you know that in God of War Multiplayer, each warrior will align themselves with one of four Gods. Each God will grant a different set of unlockable powers, armor sets, and abilities, which leads to a unique style of play for each God "class."
The first God you'll be able to align with in the Beta will be the almighty Zeus, so to help you get ready, we have a new trailer...

61w ago - Giant Sparrow Creative Director Ian Dallas has announced today that The Unfinished Swan flies to PSN on October 23 and has confirmed early PS Plus access too.
To quote: When you make a game about something unusual like, say, throwing paint in an all-white world, you expect to get a lot of questions. But we were surprised that the question we got asked the most turned out to be "when can I buy it?"
Now we have an answer: you can buy The Unfinished Swan on October 23rd exclusively on PSN for $14.99. And if you're a PlayStation Plus member, you can get the game a week early - October 16th.
In the meantime, there's still a lot to learn about the game. You've met the King, now get to know us: the team behind it all.
In the first of a series of developer diaries, we'll lift the curtain and give you some background on Giant Sparrow, the beginning of The Unfinished Swan and how we landed on PlayStation Network.
Check it out:
Leading up to launch on October 23rd, we will be back to dive in and show you all you need to know about The Unfinished Swan. For more news about the game you can check out the Giant Sparrow company...
92w ago - For those who are not PlayStation Plus subscribers, today Associate Product Marketing Manager Brian Dunn has outlined how you can still obtain Journey early access alongside pre-order program details below.
To quote: If you have been following Journey, then you're probably as excited as I am about its release next week on March 13, as the first game in our Spring Fever event this year.
The reviews so far have been fantastic, and I can't wait to get online and experience the game online with other Journey fans.
If you caught Friday's update from Kellee, the last line of her post about big news coming Monday probably had you wondering what sort of news might be coming.
Well, earlier this morning I'm sure you saw this month's PS Plus blog post revealing that Journey will be available this week for all PS Plus members, one week ahead of the normal release date. What's more, this early access purchase comes with a bonus, an exclusive PS3 dynamic theme featuring some concept art from the game.
And if you're not a Plus member, we are also launching a special pre-order program as well. You'll be able to put your money down for the game and get hold...
