3w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli shared a Neil Druckmann PBS interview video today for The Last of Us below.
To quote: Our first-ever single player DLC, The Last of Us: Left Behind, was unveiled last week in New York during the PS4 launch event. If you haven't seen the teaser, check it out now. There are some cool hints as to what kind of gameplay you'll be seeing in the video.
The Last of Us: Left Behind is one element of our $19.99 Season Pass. We wanted the Season Pass to be all-inclusive and a great value. The first piece of DLC for the Season Pass was our Abandoned Territories Map Pack. The Abandoned Territories Map Pack released in October and it's a blast, with four brand new maps for the Factions multiplayer in The Last of Us.
In addition to our behind-the-scenes documentary, Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us, we added over 60 multiplayer head items to the Season Pass. The Country Flag Hats and Nightmare...
12w ago - Today Brand and Hardware Marketing Manager James Olivier announced that the Grand Theft Auto V Pulse Headset and Manager application are available to coincide with the official release of GTA V worldwide.
This headset includes all of the great features experienced on the existing PULSE wireless stereo headset such as BassImpact technology, virtual 7.1 surround sound and a crystal clear built-in noise cancelling mic.
In addition, the headset also comes loaded with a special Grand Theft Auto V Sound Mode. This sound mode enhances immersion by letting players use both sound and vibration to sense the impact of bullets, helping to locate incoming gunfire in hectic shootouts; as well as a vibration-based heartbeat to indicate low health, and additional effects to enhance explosions, crashes...
14w ago - According to CVG (linked above), Sony is preparing to reveal the final piece of its PlayStation 4 hardware strategy at TGS (Tokyo Game Show) 2013 by showcasing a PlayStation-branded virtual reality headset for the upcoming PS4 console.
To quote: "It originally intended to reveal the headset at Gamescom but plans fell through at the eleventh hour. The company is currently weighing up whether the PS4 device should be pitched as a key differentiator for the console or a non-essential add-on.
The matter has been slightly complicated, but not derailed, by the growing industry support for Oculus Rift. Sony's device will be a categorical rival to Oculus, and for months there have been rumours suggesting the two companies are seeking a partnership.
A games developer familiar with Sony's plans, who wished to remain anonymous, told CVG that Evolution Studios is currently working with the device to simulate a cockpit view on its PS4 title Drive Club.
Another developer claimed the virtual reality headset resembles the 3D headset that Sony first revealed in January 2011. The head-mounted display will be available separately, like with the new PlayStation Eye, in order to keep the baseline PS4 price as low as possible.
In August, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida suggested...
19w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore shared a video today showcasing Puppeteer Powers dubbed Heads Will Roll on PlayStation 3.
To quote: Puppeteer is nearly upon us. To keep you satisfied until launch on September the 10th, we put together a short video that explains some of the concepts behind the strange and fantastical world of Puppeteer.
I would ignore the weird English guy and his funny accent and concentrate on all the luscious, varied gameplay. If you like what you see - and you're looking for a unique gaming experience this fall - then don't hesitate to pre-order and pick up Puppeteer's soundtrack for free.
Kutaro can collect more than 100 heads in Puppeteer, from the Hamburger head to the Lion head. But none are more valuable than the Hero Heads, each of which bestows Kutaro with a powerful new ability that you'll keep for the rest of the adventure.
The Knight Head will enable you to deflect incoming projectiles with the Shield Power - a useful method for dealing with some of Puppeteer's massive bosses. With the Ninja Head you'll wield the powerful Bomb Power, which enables you to hurl explosives at enemies and blow up parts of the environment.
With the Moon Pirate Head, you can hurl a grappling hook that yanks enemies closer or...
23w ago - Since the official Sony PlayStation 4 unveil, some pictures of the PS4 box contents and bundled headset have now surfaced.
Below are the details, from DualShockers.com (linked above) to quote: "We already know that the box of the PS4 will include the console, the DualShock 4, a HDMI cable, a mono headset, a power cord, an USB cord and the instructions.
What we didn't yet know is how some of those components will look. Today the picture portrayed above has been floating on the internet. Is it the first picture or mock up of what will be inside the coveted PS4 box or a very well made fake?
Interestingly enough the USB cable seems to be a two meter one, at least making a visual comparison with an equivalent one I have at home, while the cable included in the PS3 was only one meter long. This might give some more leeway to those like me that like to play for extended sessions and prefer to have the controller plugged in.
Pushing the picture in question through some rather heavy enlarging on photoshop shows no real evident signs of alteration, but we weren't able to confirm the validity of the source, so for now we'll chalk it as a rumor. The headset...
