31w ago - IO Interactive Community Manager Nick Price is here with a new video today showcasing the disguises in Hitman: Absolution for the PS3 entertainment system!
To quote: If you pick just one unique, fun element that truly stands out in a Hitman game, it's got to be the ability to suit up in various disguises in order to fool passersby and infiltrate protected areas undetected.
At IO, we've always had a lot of fun with disguises, which probably culminated in Hitman: Blood Money's white suits, clown outfits, and full-body chicken costumes.
With Hitman: Absolution, we're following up on that tradition and we're adding new wrinkles as well. Most importantly, we've added the ability to "blend in," which allows you to act out your disguise more convincingly. Whereas a disguise would fool people at a distance in the old games, Agent 47 can now use his Instinct powers to fool people up close.
Normally, enemies can detect your disguise if you walk straight up to them and they are wearing similar outfits - for instance, a Chicago police officer will eventually start to question you if you are wearing a police uniform.
But by blending in, you can briefly fool a nearby enemy...

64w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has showcased a new Starhawk Build to Kill PS3 trailer today, complete with details below as follows:
As most of you know, Starhawk is a frenetic 3rd person shooter with a ton of toys to play with. Its got a strong solo story campaign, deep 32 player head-to-head and even co-op! You can run, fly and drive almost anywhere you want.
Its vehicular combat at its finest. The most popular question we get from players unfamiliar with the game is "What is this thing called Build & Battle?"
Simply put its a dead simple way to build up a base all around you while staying in the middle of a fierce battle. Its not block building and its not slow. We're not making Sim City. To show you, here is a nifty trailer!
In Starhawk we have one simple slogan..."Kill to build, build to kill."
It's not a gimmick. Its a really easy way for players to change the battlefield on the fly, in an instant straightforward manner. Its about dropping gigantic crates from orbit, having them smash down in front of you and having a big laser or bunker build right in front of you. You can even drop them on enemies ("Dorothy'd").
75w ago - Sega of America Community Manager Kate Bryant has shared a new Yakuza: Dead Souls PS3 trailer today which spotlights how to kill a zombie for fans.
To quote: It's a question as old as zombies themselves - How do you kill a zombie? I find that most zombie-killing machines fall into one of two main categories: guns and melee weapons.
Yakuza: Dead Souls makes sure that you can experience both from the comfort of your own home. After the trailer, a brief discussion on the weapons you'll have at your disposal in Yakuza: Dead Souls.
Guns - A reliable source of zombie obliteration. A well-timed headshot goes a long way in zombie eradication, and Yakuza: Dead Souls has more than enough guns to choose from. (Don't forget that you can play as Ryuji Goda, whose fake arm is a gatling gun!)
Additionally, Yakuza: Dead Souls allows you to "heat snipe" items for maximum zombie carnage. Horde of zombies got you craving more fire power? Well then snipe the gas tank on a nearby car and watch the explosion spread!
Melee - If you're anything like me, you're thinking, "Alright, guns are cool but what happens if I'm out of ammo or just plain feel like slapping a zombie around?"
