97w ago - Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has posted up a video run-through on the competitive online play in MotorStorm RC for both PS3 and PS Vita today.
To quote: MotorStorm RC is a few short weeks away and already the competitive online cross-play at its heart is igniting intense rivalries.
Here at Evolution Studios there's been a lot of competition for the best performances on every track and we're thrilled that gamers and journalists are experiencing this at special preview events all around the world.
Ahead of getting the opportunity to jump into the competition for yourself, I'm here to give you the low down on just how online competition works with other players - running you through a short video of me competing with Zoe (Evolution Studios QA Manager, who sits on the desk across from me) as I take on her performance in a Hot Lap race.
It's so easy to see what your friends and rivals have been up to and, with super-fast load times on both PS3 and PS Vita, jump into a race instantly to beat their fastest times and wipe the smirk off their face.
Competing like this, on your own schedule, is a perfect fit for both MotorStorm RC and the PlayStation Vita, letting you pick up the game and compete...
110w ago - Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson has shared details today on DC Online Universe, which he states is now free to play your way on PS3!
To quote: Remember back in September when we announced that DC Universe Online was going to be Free-To-Play? Well, it's here!
Starting today you can download DCUO from the PlayStation Store for free, and play all you want with no monthly fee required. Experience the game play features that have gotten players excited about DCUO since it launched, including the intense, fast-action brawler style combat system that makes it feel more like an action game than a massive online game.
Now, you can see for yourself how DCUO offers the best of both worlds. Fight, fly, speed, battle with friends, pummel your enemies, explore the amazing locales of the DC Universe, hobnob with Wonder Woman... all for free!
We're really excited about this transition because you all have been asking us to make this change, and now we've done it - we're making DCUO accessible to so many more players.
We heard all of you out there who told us at conventions, on Facebook and elsewhere that you'd love to jump in to the game, if only it didn't have that pesky monthly fee. Well, now's your chance. With our three...
116w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson has announced today that DC Universe Online for PS3 is going free-to-play!
To quote: What could possibly be better than battling with thousands of other players online in the first, and only, action MMO on the PS? How about battling FOR FREE?
That's right, DC Universe Online will soon be free to download from the PlayStation Store, and free-to-play with no monthly fees required.
So what's the catch? There is none. The entire game will be open for you to play for free. We have gotten a lot of feedback from gamers asking for an opportunity to play without a subscription requirement. So, that got us thinking about how to offer access to the game in a way that allows gamers to play their way.
We wanted something that would give players options. We know different types of gamers are playing - and want to play - DCUO, and we want each person to be able to play in a way that best fits their style. That's why we've created three levels of access to the game:
• Free Access - Just like it sounds. Download and play the game for free. You also get all ongoing game updates (except DLC packs).
• Premium Access - This next level of access opens up to you if you spend...

203w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today which details White Knight Chronicles PS3 online play and revealed that it will launch across Europe on February 26, 2010.
To quote: We've been talking about White Knight Chronicles for so long, that it's actually a bit hard for me to believe that it's only 2 weeks from hitting stores. But [checks calendar], that is indeed the case!
A few days ago, we held a media event in San Francisco to allow reporters hands-on time with the online portion of the game in a team setting.
I also sat down with US Producer Tsubasa Inaba to talk ask how robust the online feature set is with White Knight Chronicles.
I can't think of another RPG whose online modes (if they even exist!) are so intertwined with the solo campaign, and so I can personally see myself investing a lot of time there in just two weeks.
Also, we hope you've been enjoying the tutorial videos - a third one (featuring a dissection of the character creation options) will be debuting soon.
