15h ago - 2K Games Senior Community Manager Ronnie Singh posted up a video today showcasing NBA 2K14 as part of their PS4 Developer Diary dubbed MyCAREER on PlayStation 4.
To quote: MyCAREER has been one of NBA 2K14's most-played modes. The question is, with the next generation of technology, how do we create a fresh experience beyond playing games on the court? Creating a new cinematic experience that rivals a Hollywood film - that's how!
With over 300 pages of script, MyCAREER on PS4 takes you on an emotional journey like you've never experienced before. Our goal was to place you IN the game. From competing on the court, to decisions you make off the court, the experience has been expanded in an immersive journey through next gen technology.
For example, early on you may not get the minutes you want as a rookie. As your team calls a timeout, you have a decision to make - remain sitting or get up and celebrate with your teammates. Each decision affects the way you are viewed both from your team's viewpoint and the way fans look at you. This is just one of many deep decisions you make, with your actions opening up hours and hours of completely new content both on and off the court.
6w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman detailed some of the game-changing additions to XCOM: Enemy Within below today.
To quote: XCOM: Enemy Unknown was one of 2012′s gaming triumphs; an obsessively playable sci-fi epic that injected new life into the turn-based tactics genre.
As the commander of the counter-extraterrestrial agency XCOM, you faced impossible choices on both a macro and micro level. Send aid to China and risk upsetting Africa? Send a trooper into harm's way to save a high-level comrade, or eat the loss and regroup from a stronger defensive position? XCOM is at its best when the stakes are highest.
With XCOM: Enemy Within, legendary developer Firaxis is expanding on the foundation of the original with tons of new maps, new equipment, new aliens, a mechanized soldier class, and new genemods that can transform your troopers into superhuman killing machines. We caught up with Lead Designer Ananda Gupta to get the inside scoop, and we sent him some of your questions.
BVAidan: Is this a new game or an add on? I'm new to the series and don't know much about XCOM.
Ananda Gupta: It's an expansion to last year's XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and on PS3 you'll be able to get all of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, all the DLC that was released for that game, and...
16w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi invites fans to unlock the mysteries of Open Me, which officially arrives on PS Vita today.
To quote: We hope you're ready to think outside the box, 'cause Open Me for PS Vita is available today on PlayStation Store!
We received an amazing response from everyone when we announced Open Me back in March, and we've been listening ever since.
First off, we created a trial version that you can download for free so you can get a feel for the game. Secondly, the trial version includes the multiplayer box mode, so grab your friends and take on the challenge together!
After you've taken Open Me for a test drive, purchase the full 12-pack game for $9.99, or one pack for $0.99. If 12 packs are too many, and one just isn't enough, we created a 6-pack bundle (24 boxes) for $5.49. Enough packs, puzzles, and boxes for you?!
We didn't think so either, so we partnered with three teams in Japan Studio to create three collaboration boxes! If you purchase one pack or more, you'll also get the Tokyo Jungle box, Toro's box, and the Gravity Rush box for free!
The Smart AR in Open Me works especially well when you use the Original AR Marker, so if you have a...
22w ago - Sony Product Manager Ken Chan announced that the GT6 demo is officially available today and invites fans to download and qualify for Nissan GT Academy 2013.
To quote: Do you have what it takes to go from couch to cockpit and join the Nissan GT Academy team? The 2013 GT Academy competition begins today at 5:00pm Pacific Time when an exclusive demo of Gran Turismo 6 for PS3 becomes available to download.
The GT6 demo will guide players through GT Academy-themed driving school challenges before unlocking the final qualifying event.

The demo includes the following modes on the new Silverstone track:
• A quick tutorial that includes tips and tricks on the controls and navigating around the track
• Four warm-up races using two Nissan cars, the LEAF and 370Z
• Five time trials on the Silverstone track driving the Nissan 370Z, four of which take place on various sections of the track, and one being the full lap. That one full lap time becomes the entry time for GT Academy. Enter as often as you like before 3:59pm Pacific Time on July 28th.
27w ago - Alawar Entertainment Product Manager Polina Belavskaya officially invites fans to solve the mystery of Mountain Crime: Requital on PSN today.
To quote: Hello Dr. White, and welcome to Mountain Crime: Requital, a game full of questions to be answered. The only help you will have is fragments of old letters, memos, somewhat puzzling conversations with guests, and your wits.
Dr. White must investigate a "locked room mystery" after a phone call that brings him to the remote White Wolf Hotel. He drives to the "Wolf" to rescue a heart attack victim. He barely survives a car crash on a bridge to start a really bad trip. Ouch!
This version of the game is complemented by new controls, a redesigned main menu, and tactile sensations. You, Doctor, can drag objects found during the game using the wireless controller or PlayStation Move - depending on your preference - and when you find an object the controller will emit a congratulatory buzz.
One tip: The puzzles, which are easy in the beginning, gradually become more and more challenging. This adventure might surprise even hardcore criminals - pardon me - players; it's a rich adventure in the best traditions of the hidden object genre.
If you'd like to try something different from the ordinary PlayStation 3 fare, take...
