43w ago - Sony Assistant Producer Dais Kawaguchi announced today that fans seeking to fight to survive in Tokyo Jungle can do so when the PSN title hits PlayStation Network this September 25th.
Below are the details, to quote: You may have caught wind of this one-of-a-kind title's release in Japan or heard whispers of it this past E3, but we're excited to finally announce that Tokyo Jungle will be coming to PS3 via PSN very shortly - on September 25th, to be exact!
Developed by PlayStation C.A.M.P and Crispy's, Tokyo Jungle is an action-adventure game set in a post-apocalyptic Japan, where humankind no longer exists and animals must ruthlessly fight for their lives. In this world, there's just one rule - only the strong survive!
Tokyo Jungle puts you in the shoes (paws?) of over 50 playable animals ranging from Pomeranians to Lions. Playing your animal of choice, unleash your inner beast to hunt your way to the top of Tokyo's post-apocalyptic food chain.
There are two game modes: in Story Mode, you'll play as a range of different animals whose lives are intertwined as they struggle to survive in the Tokyo wilderness, while unraveling the mystery of mankind's disappearance.
43w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has confirmed today that Sports Champions 2 is slated to hit North America this October 30th.
Below are the details, to quote: Hi again, this is Sports Champions 2 Senior Producer, Jeremy Ray, and I'm super excited to finally let everyone know when Sports Champions 2 will be available here in the US - October 30th!
Since we're getting close, I've got a small update on the game for you.
We're giving the game one final coat of polish and squashing bugs right now, and I'm proud to say that we've surpassed many of our lofty internal goals. We can't wait until it's in your hands.
One example: the Avatar Creator feature has turned out so much better than we envisioned it. In fact, we are already starting to think about post-release support to make this feature even better - hopefully I'll be able to announce something on that after launch.
The creativity we've seen with the QA team on the avatar creator has been inspiring, and we're incredibly excited to see how much further the fans take it.
We are also getting a ton of great feedback on Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, Bowling, and the new Archery. Just...
44w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Director of Marketing Brandon Stander has announced today that PS Plus is coming to PS Vita alongside news that the Online Game Save Storage is being upgraded!
To quote: Since its inception, PlayStation Plus has delivered a strong value to PlayStation gamers. We've been keeping our ears to the ground and asking Plus members "What would you like to see added to PlayStation Plus?"
Today, I'm happy to share the news that was announced at Gamescom: PlayStation Plus is coming to PS Vita this year, and Online Game Saves are getting a giant upgrade in September.
We will also deliver PlayStation Plus, which is currently available for PS3 users, to PS Vita users this year. By purchasing a membership to PlayStation Plus, PS Vita users will be able to enjoy various services which will become available exclusively for members.
Additionally, we're upgrading Online Game Save Storage. Previously, Online Game Saves offered up to 150MB of game save data storage in the cloud for PlayStation 3. With this update, Plus members will get to store up to 1GB of game save data. This means you'll never have to worry about running out of space for your game save files!
We love hearing feedback from the community, so please share your thoughts with us in the comments...
44w ago - Madden NFL Arcade Designer Danny Doeberling has confirmed today that Madden NFL 13 hits PS Vita on August 28th, and that fans can snap up the demo tomorrow!
To quote: My name is Danny Doeberling, and I'm a Designer on Madden NFL 13 for PS Vita. The game is launching on August 28th, but I wanted to let you know how you can get your hands on the action early with the demo, starting August 14th.
When designing Madden for PS Vita, the Dev Team set the goal of making the most complete Madden handheld experience to date, and without a doubt I feel we delivered it.
Madden NFL 13 is visually stunning on PS Vita - seeing all the superstars decked out in their brand new NFL uniforms in HD on that gorgeous OLED screen really gets you excited for football season to start.
The game is built from the Gen 3 engine, so if you are familiar with PlayStation 3, you will feel right at home here.
Our favorite part of development on this title was incorporating PS Vita's unique features. I'll just say this: you don't know how much you need the touch screen until you get it in your hands - you can use your finger to freely draw receivers' routes!
We titled this feature Call Your Shots. It's quick, it's fun, and it will make you forget about the old way of individually...
45w ago - Zindagi Games Project Manager Colin O'Hara has posted up a video showcasing Sports Champions 2's improved Archery Mode for fans below today.
To quote: Sports Champions 2 will be releasing this fall for PlayStation Move, adding new sports such as skiing, boxing, tennis, bowling and golf, in addition to a much-evolved archery mode.
These six sports lend themselves particularly well to motion gaming, with some requiring strategy and finesse and others a blend of speed and reaction time.
But given the popularity of Archery in the original Sports Champions, we wanted to demonstrate how far we've come with Sports Champions 2. Read on for lots of new details!
One early goal was to eliminate the need for PlayStation Move calibration, which could be pretty annoying in the first game. We are now able to get enough starting data when you turn on the game or a controller, and we've integrated some of the information gathering into the games themselves - along with some corrective behind-the-scenes calibration - so you can just play.
But our primary goal with Archery this time around was to combine the competitive nature of the original game with the fast-paced, high-action style of Medival Moves:...
