50°
20w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer shared a preview today of March's PSN Instant Game Collection for 2014 with details below.

To quote: Let's take a look at what you're going to get in March with your PlayStation Plus membership. To start, PlayStation 4 owners can enjoy the Apocalypse Edition of the critically acclaimed PS3 twin-stick zombie shooter, Dead Nation.

The PS4 version includes updated visuals and controls, as well as a sweet interactive broadcast mode, so hit that "Share" button when you start playing!

PS3 owners get Tomb Raider, one of last year's most praised titles. This reboot showcases Lara's transformation from a recent anthropology graduate to a battle-hardened adventurer as her expedition crashes on a mysterious island. You'll hunt animals, upgrade weapons and choose perks to increase Lara's chances of survival.

Also on PS3: Thomas Was Alone, an adorable puzzle platformer that showcases the camaraderie of artificial intelligences depicted as various shapes, and Lone Survivor: Director's Cut, a 2D adventure style survival horror game. Bonus! Thomas Was Alone and Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut are Cross-Buy titles, so you'll get both the PS3 and PS Vita versions of those games.

For PS Vita this month, you get Unit 13: a third-person...
 

Video: Sportsfriends: Pass the Hokra - PSN Preview Arrives

84w ago - Creator Ramiro Corbetta has introduced Sportsfriends: Hokra today complete with a PSN preview video for fans below.

To quote: I'm Ramiro Corbetta, creator of Hokra, one of the four games that make up Sportsfriends.

If you don't know about Sportsfriends, it's a compendium of four super fun local multiplayer games that's coming to PSN in 2013. Over the last couple of weeks, two of the other designers involved in Sportsfriends spoke about their games (you can read about Noah Sasso's BaraBariBall and about Bennett Foddy's Super Poler Riders), and today I get to write about my game.

Hokra is a minimalist sports game for two teams of two players. Players score points by holding the balls in the goals of their color on the corners of the screen. This video I did with Kotaku does a great job of explaining the basics of the game:





The rules are quite simple, but the game has a lot of depth to it. Even though I have played it for innumerable hours, I'm still finding new techniques and strategies when I play against expert competition.

When I started working on Hokra, I wasn't exactly making a game. I had been playing lots of FIFA, and like many other people, my favorite part of the game is...
 

Video: Sony Previews PULSE 12/20 Edition: The Year in Review

134w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has posted up a preview of their PULSE 12/20 Edition, which features the Year in Review below.

To quote: As 2011 draws to a close, join Christina Lee for a look back at some of the year's most memorable games. From Sackboy's return in LittleBigPlanet 2 to Nathan Drake's epic adventure in UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception, this year was one of the biggest in recent memory.

From the big shooters like Killzone 3 and Battlefield 3 to surprises such as PSN exclusives Eufloria and inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood, the year also included a dramatic redesign of PlayStation Home and a beautiful compilation of the beloved Ico & Shadow of the Colossus collection.

We know this only scratches the surface and there's plenty of titles PULSE didn't have time to mention, but we hope you enjoy a walk through another amazing year for our industry.





And, remember you can watch the full edition of PULSE from the 'What's New' section on your XMB later today when the PlayStation Store updates.

Have a safe and happy holiday and look for PULSE to return in mid-January.
