8w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates below, as follows:
Poker is one of the world's most popular card games, so chances are you already know the rules of Texas Hold 'Em and Omaha, which are the two gameplay types in Poker Night 2.
The twist in Telltale's version is that your opponents are memorable characters from other video games and movies like Borderlands' ever-lovable jack-ass robot Claptrap, Ash from Army of Darkness and doggy detective Sam from the Sam & Max.
Best of all, your dealer throughout the game is none other than Portal's GLaDOS. This poker game provides all the foul-mouthed laughs your friends do, but you won't lose all your hard earned cash.
All of these PS Plus benefits will be available after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 10/15.
Poker Night 2 (PS3)
Free for PS Plus members, Regular Price: $9.99

13w ago - Evolution Studios Community Manager Jamie Brayshaw is here with a new Driveclub PS4 demo video today which shows day / night transition below.
To quote: Check out the latest in the series of our #DRIVECLUB direct feed videos. This time, we showcase the dynamic shift in the time of day, set against the stunning Salar de Surire in Chile between 18:00 and 21:00.
13 things we'd like you to know about this video:
1. If you'd like to see a version of the video with significantly higher image quality than shown on YouTube (and a closer representation of how the game looks on PS4), you'll be able to download the 1080p video online soon.
2. The time of day is accelerated by x60, which is why the video covers from 6pm - 9pm in Chile in just three laps. Accelerating the speed of time is something you can choose to adjust before you race and it's also why the sunlight disappears so quickly at 1:58.
3. Design Director Paul Rustchynksy is the driver. He's using a Thrustmaster "T80 DRIVECLUB Edition" wheel, which explains why his last lap (in first person racing view) is the fastest.
4. The video was captured in one take from a version of the game still in development. Optimisations to the visual quality of the game are made every...
34w ago - Telltale Games Producer Adam Sarasohn announced today news of new characters including Brock Samson, Ash, Claptrap, GLaDOS, and more in Poker Night 2 alongside a video below.
To quote: You may be familiar with Telltale's episodic games like The Walking Dead or the recently announced series The Wolf Among Us, but I'm here today to discuss the latest game that we've been working on – Telltale Games' Poker Night 2.
We got some of the best characters from film, television and video games to sit down at our table to play a few hands of Hold 'Em and Omaha.
On top of that, the game is bursting with unlockable content: you can unlock new decks, chips and felts, which can cause the Inventory (the venue for the game's chicanery) to take on a whole new look. You'll even unlock items outside of the game.
But first, let's talk about the characters you'll be facing at the table. To your immediate left looms Brock Samson, the (former) bodyguard to the Venture Family from Adult Swim's Venture Bros. This guy just oozes cool, but don't think about stealing his chips, because he has a license to kill and he's not afraid to use it.
109w ago - Today Producer Jazz Brousseau has announced that Fight Night Champion Customizable hits PlayStation Network today for under $5 with details below.
To quote: Hey fight fans, I'm here to give you the run-down on Fight Night Champion Customizable, available later today exclusively on PSN starting at $4.99.
With Fight Night Champion, we delivered a dramatically new gameplay experience. In creating Champion Mode, it was the first time that EA SPORTS had incorporated a story-based game mode into a sports title.
Inspired by classic boxing movies, Champion Mode allows players to step into the shoes of Andre Bishop, an up-and-coming middleweight contender who learns that the road to becoming a champion in professional boxing is one that is filled with unimaginable highs and brutal lows. Champion Mode tells a story of redemption and perseverance in one of the toughest sports ever imagined.
Now with Fight Night Champion available as a customizable digital download exclusively on PSN, we're once again delivering a new experience to gamers; we're giving them the opportunity to customize their experience to meet their gaming needs. We anticipate a few questions, so here's more detail on this unique approach to downloadable games:
