11w ago - Harmonix Art Director Ryan Lesser invites fans to help make Amplitude happen on both PS4 and PS3 video game platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: Ryan Lesser here, Art Director at Harmonix, and I have some awesome news that I wanted to share with PlayStation fans.

We are launching a [Register or Login to view links] to fund a new version of our DualShock-controlled rhythm-action PlayStation 2 classic, [Register or Login to view links], for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, and we need your support!

Thirteen years ago, Harmonix created our first music game - [Register or Login to view links] for PS2. It wasn't a commercial hit at the time, but fans and critics loved it.

Even so, we knew we could do better. We polished, tweaked, and tightened the experience, and in 2003, we released Frequency's sequel, Amplitude. I was the Art Director and part of the "design cabal" for the original title, and I'm excited to be the Creative Lead for this updated version of Amplitude!

If you missed the original release, Amplitude is a fast-paced rollercoaster ride through an all-digital landscape, where musical notes have been "silenced" by encapsulating...

108w ago - Telltale Games Manager of Public Relations and Social Media Alan Johnson has posted up a video today showcasing The Walking Dead Episode 2, Starved for Help, which hits PSN this Friday.

ESA: Follow PlayStation's Lead and Help Protect Video Games

550°
194w ago - Today Rich Taylor of the Entertainment Software Association has shared the following PSA via PlayStation Blog on the effort to help protect video games.

To quote: Today, the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in the case of [Register or Login to view links]/ Entertainment Software Association. They'll decide whether a California law, which would restrict the sale of "violent" computer and video games, is constitutional.

What does this mean to you, PlayStation fans?

This case could have huge implications for the industry. No one is sure what counts as a "violent" game, so the California law would suppress game developers' imagination and right to self-expression. It would also prohibit retailers from selling the games that might be perfectly legal, "just in case."

It could mean an environment where "[Register or Login to view links]" is banned from retail shelves, but the sometimes violent written works detailing Greek myths are still available on bookstores shelves and taught in classrooms.

It's a slippery slope, and the California law is similar to what Congress tried to do to comic books over fifty years ago. In a letter of support for video games, comic book legend...
 

Sony: Help Defend Video Gaming and Sign the Gamer Petition!

550°
210w ago - Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) President Hal Halpin has extended an invitation to video gamers to sign the [Register or Login to view links] to preserve video gaming in America.

To quote: This winter, the game industry – developers, publishers, retailers, et al – will face the single biggest legal challenge that such entertainment, broadly, has ever been up against and in the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).

The State of California had appealed the U.S. Ninth Circuit decision to strike down the so-called CA "video game violence" law in Schwarzenegger v EMA, which every court had done in every such "violent video game" case. But this time was different; For the first time, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to review the case (via "accepting certiorari" aka "cert").

To be blunt, none of us expected it and we were all taken back by the decision. Just 1% of cases filed are granted cert – one percent!

At stake: gaming in America. Yes, you read that correctly.

California State Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) is the former child psychologist who championed the "violent video game" bill from inception and is coordinating with California Attorney General,...
