New PlayStation 3 games:
I'm sure many of you caught the announcement during the Gamescom press conference but if not, I am exceptionally happy to announce that this September PS Plus members will have access to Ubisoft's incredible Assassin's Creed III from 28th August.
Assassin's Creed III invites you to experience the untold story of the American Revolution through the eyes of a new Assassin, Connor, son of a Native American mother and British father.
You will meet legendary heroes of American history, and together you will conspire to annihilate those who threaten Liberty itself.
Next up, we welcome all action heroes Jak and Daxter to the service. In typical PS Plus fashion, we're not just give you one title...
24w ago - Sony Associate Producer Victor Harris announced that Jak and Daxter Collection is out today on PS Vita.
Below are the details, to quote: Today Jak and Daxter Collection launches on PS Vita. Now, over a decade since the Jak and Daxter series originally premiered on PS2, we are so proud to see the legacy of Naughty Dog's work brought together for players to enjoy - no matter where their adventures take them.
Jak and Daxter Collection brings three of your favorite Jak & Daxter adventures - Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II and Jak 3 - to life like never before. Mass Media has faithfully recreated the unique gameplay mechanics that you all know and love, and added touch screen support for a selection of mini games, so get ready to catch those fish and hunt down that eco.
Jak and Daxter Collection also features over 100 Trophies (including 3 Platinum) to unlock while you play through all three titles. These Trophy sets are separate from the PS3 version, so that means three more Platinum Trophies for you Trophy Hunters out there.
In addition to picking up Jak and Daxter Collection at your local game retailer, you'll be able to download the title via PSN.
Starting later today, Jak and Daxter Collection will be available...
33w ago - Sony Associate Producer Victor Harris announced today that Jak and Daxter Collection goes portable on PS Vita this June.
Below are the details, as follows: In February 2012, Naughty Dog's beloved Jak and Daxter franchise got a faithful HD remake on PS3 in the form of Jak and Daxter Collection, satiating series fans and introducing newcomers to the duo.
This June, we're expanding the collection to the portable audience. Jak and Daxter Collection (comprised of three of Jak and Daxter's legendary adventures - Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3) is coming to PS Vita for just $29.99.
The power of PS Vita means Jak and Daxter Collection will feature authentically reproduced graphics from the original games. Longtime fans will instantly feel at home, and new players will experience the world of Jak and Daxter for the first time, along with new touch-based applications of certain mini games throughout the collection.
Jak and Daxter Collection on PS Vita has full Trophy support, but fear not Trophy hunters - the list isn't shared with the PS3 version, so go for the Platinum!
We've been hard at work on this addition to the Jak and Daxter lineage, and we can't wait to hear your hover board triumph stories as well as your trials and tribulations...
67w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton goes behind the PS One / PS2 Classics today with Jak and Daxter as detailed below courtesy of the PS Blog.
To quote: When I took over the SCEE PlayStation Blog a month or two back, I promised you a few new regular features.
Today, I'm happy to unveil the first of them: Behind The Classics. Every fortnight (well, that's the plan at least), we'll be talking to the creative force behind a vintage PS One or PlayStation 2 title.
To kick things off, Naughty Dog co-founder Andy Gavin was kind enough to lend us his time to discuss the making of seminal 2001 PS2 platformer Jak & Daxter.
We've got the next few entries in the series lined up, but please feel free to leave your suggestions for future interview subjects below. Manage your expectations - these people aren't always easy to track down - but we'll do our best.
Anyway, without further ado, over to Andy...
What was the original concept for the game? Was it a deliberate attempt to create a PlayStation 2 mascot to rival Crash Bandicoot?
Andy Gavin: Of course we wanted the franchise to be as big - or bigger - than Crash. And while this didn't quite come to be, it was certainly our goal.
97w ago - Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells has announced today that Jak and Daxter Collection will be hitting PS3 on February 7, 2012 alongside detailing the PS3 Trophies below as follows:
The wait is almost over, Jak and Daxter fans! I'm happy to announce that Jak and Daxter Collection launches in North America on February 7th. In a few short weeks you'll be able to score the first three installments of the Jak and Daxter trilogy in one complete PS3 Blu-ray package for just $39.99.
Each game has been fully remastered to feature 720p HD visuals and stereoscopic 3D functionality, and one of the coolest new additions to the titles in Jak and Daxter Collection is the introduction of Trophy support.
When the series debuted on PS2 over 10 years ago, we didn't have Trophies. For our jump to PS3, Mass Media crafted custom Trophies for you to earn for all three titles in the collection.
The team at Mass Media has created intricate Trophies, each featuring a unique variation on a design theme based around its mission type. There are over 100 to collect including three Platinum Trophies, so you completionists will have hours of Trophy-hunting fun to look forward to.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the Trophies that will be up for grabs:
