250°
36w ago - DICE Community Manager Vincent Vukovic revealed today that fans will be able to bring their PS3 stats to PlayStation 4 in Battlefield 4 on the upcoming PS4 video gaming and entertainment system.

To quote: This holiday, DICE will unwrap the next generation of all-out warfare with Battlefield 4. That means best-in-class multiplayer is coming to PS4 with huge 64-player battles, running at a smooth 60 frames-per-second.

Even if you start playing on PS3, we want to make your transition to PS4 easy. That's why we're notifying the devoted Battlefield and PlayStation communities that all of the time and effort you spend building up your Battlefield 4 stats will carry over when you upgrade to PS4.

That way, on October 29th, you can get in the game without any worries that you'll have to start ranking up all over again when PS4 launches. We got your back.

Today we also wanted to inform the community that DICE is promising to keep the action going all year long with the return of Premium membership for Battlefield 4.

With membership, players can expect themed digital expansion packs, new weekly content, and personalization options. And just as your stats, unlocks, and rank will be transferable from PS3 to PS4, so too will Battlefield 4 Premium membership.

Download: GAMEBOOT.rar / ICON1.rar

To quote: Do you miss the classic game boot that was available on lower (2.80) firmware? Does your life feel empty and void of all meaning right before you launch a game?

Well, game in despair no longer because you can now have the classic spiderman font PLAYSTATION 3 back on all ps3 and all 4.xx firmwares. It is very simple, only 2 steps long. Even a paraplegic baby can do it!

2.) Copy the selected "custom_render_plugin.rco" and past it in dev_blind/vsh/resource/
3.) Feel the tension as 2 seconds of nostalgia course through you mind!

36w ago - Community Developer Zack Cooper shared a video today which takes a a high-level Look at Splinter Cell Blacklist on PS3 below.

To quote: Even though it's been such a long road to where we're at right now, it's still hard to believe that Splinter Cell Blacklist will be launching in just over a week!

We understand that more eyes are on us now than ever before - but that doesn't mean they've seen everything we've already put out there.

This video is a solid wrapper, giving you a high-level look at the entire scope of the game: the extensive Single-player campaign, the 14 unique CO-OP missions, and Spies vs. Mercs.

Oh, and it's also narrated by Charlie Cole, the man behind Sam Fisher's gadgets.





Anyway, I won't take up any more of your time. Right now, at least. Once you get your hands on Blacklist, we should take up plenty. Enjoy the video!
 

Video: Payday 2 on PS3: What You Need to Know for PlayStation 3

250°
36w ago - Overkill Software Game Director David Goldfarb detailed what fans need to know about Payday 2 on PlayStation 3 complete with a PS3 video below.

To quote: Hey everybody. We're incredibly excited to say Payday 2 is arriving on PS3 this month! We'll be bringing the four-player, cooperative heisting you know and love from the original Payday, but making it bigger, bolder, and badder - with a slew of new features that really give you a chance to live out that robbery fantasy, your way.

Now, before you go hitting that jewelry store without casing it at all, here's a quick breakdown of everything you need to know about Payday 2.

Cooperative Robbery Fantasy

Payday 2 is a sequel to the successful Payday: The Heist, a game first released on PSN and PC in 2011. Both games are first-person, cooperative shooters at their core.

Both games share the same high-intensity, "be a bank robber" concept. But Payday 2 really builds on the robbery experience we pioneered in the first game and takes it to a whole new level.

Our goal was to make players feel as though they can pull off the perfect heist. To make them feel like De Niro in Heat, or Vinnie Jones in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - or even Jesse Pinkman doing a cook in Breaking Bad. We want...
 

Video: New PS3 Visualizer App from Q-Games is Out Tuesday

36w ago - Q-Games Producer James Mielke shared a video below today spotlighting the new PS3 Visualizer application from Q-Games which arrives this Tuesday.

To quote: Hi everyone! It's been a while but I'm back for a second tour of duty on PlayStation.Blog, although I should point out that I switched Qs in the interim (I was formerly a producer at Q Entertainment, and am now a producer at Q-Games).

The reason for my check-in here today is to announce a brand-new app (you'll find it in the 'Apps' section on PSN) for PlayStation 3 simply titled Visualizer, which, as the name suggests, is a new set of over two dozen music visualizers to use with your PS3's music library.

As you may know, Q-Games is known for its technological contributions to the games industry, in addition to its PixelJunk series of games. Q (initially Dylan Cuthbert and Kentaro Yoshida) crafted the legendary duck demo for the original PlayStation 2 reveal, and later as a company were responsible for a lot of the visual effects, XMB bar, and visualizers built in to the PlayStation 3. Q-Games also handled a lot of the interface programming on PS Vita, so, essentially, we know our way around Sony's hardware.
