9h 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...
2w ago - Realta Entertainment Game Director Jon Heiner announced that BandFuse: Rock Legends is out today on PS3.
To quote: BandFuse: Rock Legends takes everything that was great with plastic guitar games - addictive gameplay, the music you love, instant playability - and makes it work for real instruments on your PS3.
If you ever wanted to sing, play bass, or guitar, and wished all those hours of pressing red, red, green could translate into real music, look no further.
We're going to take an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the craft involved in-level design, challenge ramping, and song transcription. If you're already familiar with BandFuse, feel free to skip down to the exclusive bits. But first let's talk about a few of the core features behind BandFuse: Rock Legends.
One of the many things that sets BandFuse: Rock Legends apart is the host of artists supporting and participating in the game. Slash, Bootsy Collins, and Zakk Wylde (among others) have lent their amazing skill and experience in the form of songs, interviews, instruction and more.
These artists are behind BandFuse: Rock Legends because it is the most authentic rock and roll experience you can have on consoles. Within the game, they entertain, guide, and instruct you...
2w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford posted up a video today spotlighting Media Molecule, the team behind Tearaway on PS Vita below!
To quote: The last video in our little Tearaway miniseries is all about us: Media Molecule, the studio behind Tearaway and our first game LittleBigPlanet.
The video focuses on how we work, and how we assure everyone's ideas are counted. Mm is an interesting place, a rather chaotic place where the term 'herding cats' gets thrown around a lot, but where somehow the chaos is channeled into communal creativity and the games we love to make.
We love to inspire creativity in people, and we love to create our own unique games that we think will give people experiences unlike any they've had before.
Tearaway is out this Friday, November 22nd and we hope it will provide players with exactly that - a new game experience unlike any other - we'll let you be the judge!
We hope you enjoy this last video in the series- remember to pre-order Tearaway to secure the cool pre-order bonus items. Week one orders at the PS Store will also include the bonus items, so those who prefer the digital version will not miss out!
3w ago - Sony Senior Producer Adam Urbano at NetherRealm Studios announced today that Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition is officially out today and includes 6 DLC fighters.
To quote: Today's launch of the Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition represents the non-stop efforts of a huge group of talented developers who have been hard at work since Injustice hit store shelves.
We had two lofty goals: support our fans with more additional content than any other fighting game, and make this Ultimate Edition package available on the same day for all PlayStation fans - regardless of their favorite platform.
Players can experience Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition on PS3 and PS Vita. And for everyone lucky enough to get a PS4 on launch day, they can experience the game running at 60 frames per second in native 1080p!
In addition to the awesome PS4 architecture that allowed us to go with 1080p at 60 FPS, the new features of the hardware fit Injustice perfectly, and even allowed us to add support for wish-list features like video sharing in a more seamless way than we ever thought possible.
The first time we pushed the "share" button on a PS4 controller and saw how streaming gameplay to the web just worked, we knew this technology had the ability to offer...
4w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli announced today that their The Last of Us Multiplayer: Nightmare PS3 bundle is officially out tomorrow with details below.
To quote: We're keeping the spirit of Halloween alive and kicking this week as the Nightmare Bundle will be available when PlayStation Store updates in your region. This is our second batch of multiplayer head items.
These nine gnarly masks and helmets can be downloaded for free if you buy The Last of Us Season Pass. If you still haven't purchased a Season Pass, get it now as you'll be savings over 75% versus buying all DLC individually.
If you don't want to buy individual items or the Season Pass, these Nightmare head items are also part of a bundle. If you want the Nightmare Mask for your character they'll only be able to wear it if you have a Season Pass or purchase the Nightmare Bundle. In other words, the Nightmare Mask is exclusive to the Nightmare Bundle and Season Pass holders.
Get ready for more The Last of Us coverage, multiplayer head items, and DLC news in the coming weeks. See you online!
