Video: New LittleBigPlanet PS Vita Trailer, Early Review Highlights

50°
82w ago - Tarsier Studios Community Coordinator Simon Rosenkotter has posted up a new LittleBigPlanet PS Vita trailer today along with some early review highlights below.

To quote: As some of you may have seen already, copies of LittleBigPlanet PS Vita have been popping up early at various retailers.

If you've been lucky enough to snag a copy, I hope you're enjoying the early access! Keep in mind, the servers won't go live until September 18th, so online play won't be available for another day, but you can still play the game offline in its entirety.

And now that you're beginning to dig into Sackboy's latest mobile adventure, we have a whole bunch of goodies and treats to show you.

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita has been developed by Tarsier Studios and Double Eleven with a brand new story that takes place not on Craftworld, but on the travelling planet of Carnivalia.

Once the bringer of joy and laughter, Carnivalia has now been taken over by the mysterious Puppeteer and his evil henchmen, the Hollows! Now it creates joy only to steal it all back again. So, it's up to Sackboy to save the Omniverse when the game officially launches in North America on September 25th!

In celebration of our launch, we have a brand new trailer for you, which takes a closer look...

84w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein is here with some video footage showcasing the God of War: Ascension PS3 panel highlights from PAX 2012 below.

To quote: This past weekend at PAX, I was fortunate enough to moderate a panel with some of the top minds working on God of War: Ascension.

While getting inside the heads of the creators of Kratos' next adventure was a treat, we did a lot more than just talk.

The team brought early sketches of Kratos (dreadlocks!) and the first playable video of the original God of War, before the Blades of Chaos were irrevocably bound to his forearms. We also revealed Ascension's big bads, the Furies, with a close look at Mageara, the "enforcer" of the mythical tio.

While we streamed the panel live, courtesy of Twitch.tv, you're forgiven if you missed it last Friday evening. But the excuses are gone now - we've cut down the hour-long panel into an 11-minute highlight reel. Take a look:





Your panelists, from left to right:

• Mark Simon - Lead Designer on God of War: Ascension
• Patrick Murphy - Principal Character Artist for God of War: Ascension
• Marianne Krawczyk - award-winning...

91w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli is here with some video highlights from The Last Of Us Comic-Con 2012 panel today for fans.

To quote: In San Diego this past week, we were floored to see how many people turned out for Comic-Con!

The highlight of our very busy weekend was our The Last of Us panel. We couldn't believe how long some people waited in line to attend our panel on Friday.

Some amazing cosplayers came by, and the room was just packed in general. The enthusiasm there was infectious and truly exciting.

We had The Last of Us Creative Director, Neil Druckmann, and Game Director, Bruce Straley, discuss various game inspirations and dive deeper into the characters, the plausible science behind the game, and the character acting behind the scenes.

Actor Troy Baker (Joel) and actress Ashley Johnson (Ellie) commented on their performance capture experiences and actor W. Earl Brown (There's Something About Mary, Deadwood) was introduced in a new cinematic as Bill, a new character in the world of The Last of Us.

If you weren't around to see the panel, here's a condensed look...





We had an unbelievable E3 and SDCC shaped up to be equally inspiring...
