4d ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared the Gran Turismo 6 opening PS3 movie and TV commercial video footage with GT6 fans below today.
To quote: Hey there, race fans. As many of you know, it's a huge week for GT. Gran Turismo 6 storms onto PS3 tomorrow, and to mark the occasion we held a grand launch event in Ronda, Spain.
Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi was present to make a number of announcements, including the arrival of three new Red Bull cars in GT6: the Red Bull X2014 Fan car (X2014/F), the Red Bull X2014 Standard car (X2014/S) and the Red Bull X2014 Junior car (X2014/J).
These three cars were designed by Polyphony Digital Inc. in collaboration with Adrian Newey, Chief Technical Officer of four-time F1 champions Red Bull Racing.
Also present was a camouflaged version of the yet-to-be-launched BMW M4 Coupé. The stunning new car - shown publicly only as a concept until now - will go on sale in 2014. In collaboration with BMW, Polyphony Digital enjoyed unprecedented access to the car during its development, and it will be made available through a free update shortly after the release of GT6, allowing gamers around the world to drive it before it arrives in BMW showrooms.
Not only that, but the city of Ronda also honoured Yamauchi-san by...
33w ago - Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson is here with the first video below showcasing the upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie which hits theaters in 2015.
To quote: One of the biggest questions we've gotten in the last few years is "When are you going to make a Ratchet & Clank movie?" The truth is, we've wanted to do a movie for a long time!
Ratchet & Clank's action, humor and galaxy-spanning adventures have really been the basis for a fantastic game series, and we think it'd translate perfectly to the big screen.
We've been looking for the right partner to help us bring a Ratchet & Clank movie to life, and we're thrilled to announce that Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment are currently in production on Ratchet & Clank's first cinematic adventure.
Insomniac is honored to play a hands-on role with the film's production, screenplay, character development, and animation consulting. Furthermore, our own Ratchet & Clank writer, T.J. Fixman, who has written all of the recent Ratchet & Clank games, is writing the script for the film as well.
40w ago - Today Nilay Patel of TheVerge.com spoke to Sony Electronics President and Chief Operating Officer Phil Molyneux who confirmed in the interview that Sony's 4K movie service will be hitting PS4 / PlayStation 4 and require 100GB-plus downloads!
Below are the details, to quote: "Sony is still being secretive about its forthcoming "world's first" 4K movie download service, but it sounds like it will eventually work with the equally-mysterious PS4. That's the word according to Sony Electronics President and COO Phil Molyneux, who said "I promise you will not be disappointed" when asked if the service would support his company's new console. That certainly makes sense, and it lines up with previous reports that the PS4 would support 4K photos and video, but not games.
Molyneux spoke to The Verge at a Sony event in New York City where he'd invited the press to compare Sony's newest TVs, headphones, and cameras to similar products from competitors - an event designed to highlight what Molyneux called his "utter confidence" in his product lineup. Still, the questions about why consumers would buy 4K TVs remained, especially around the upcoming download service.
63w ago - Hello Games Managing Director Sean Murray has shared a video today announcing that Joe Danger: The Movie is roaring onto PSN with exclusive content.
To quote: It's even more exciting to be able to announce that Joe Danger: The Movie is coming to PS3 in the very near future with exclusive new content!
Two years ago, three friends and I made the original Joe Danger. The PlayStation community then took us under their wing and helped make it the huge success it became.
Since then we've been working incredibly hard to create the follow-up, Joe Danger: The Movie. Finally, today we can announce that Joe is coming home to the PlayStation Store very, very soon.
What I really can't wait for is the surprises we have in store for PlayStation gamers. This has been a total labour of love for us, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what people think of the game.
If you want to know more about the game, you can read some previews here and here, but first let me tell you a bunch of stuff you might not know.
Make your own Movie!
In the original, Joe Danger was a washed up stuntman, living in a caravan in the middle of the desert. Now he has been discovered by a mysterious...
