Sony Goes Behind the Scenes with SingStar Dance for PS3

50°
216w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited Content Producer Katy Macdonald has gone behind the scenes today with SingStar Dance for PS3.

To quote: In a studio in South London, professional dancers, choreographers, principal designers, members of the SingStar team and myself gathered for something pretty special.

This was the shoot for the upcoming SingStar Dance game, due for release later this year. The team were recording footage of the dancers that will be presented in-game for users to follow when playing.

Fully rehearsed and in costume, the dancers were ready to begin.

For me, watching anyone perform a well thought out dance routine is pretty impressive, and two people simultaneously performing a very long and difficult routine in perfect time is something that takes a lot of effort, practice and skill.

I spoke to choreographer Shaun Niles about how he creates a dance routine for SingStar Dance.

"It's very hard! I have to pretend to hold the PlayStation Move motion controller myself when I work out routines to see what can be done with it. Some movements can be quite difficult, such as a flick of the wrist, and can feel a bit weird with the controller in your hand at first. Its hard work but I have choreographed a few routines for...

221w ago - Ubisoft Sr. Brand Manager Michael Micholic has announced today that the soundtrack to Scott Pilgrim vs The World is going old school on PSN.

To quote: Once we decided to go for the old school, side scrolling, beat 'em up style with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Video Game, we wanted to go all in! We brought in pixel artist extraordinaire Paul Robertson.

The next step was creating an amazing soundtrack. We immediately thought of Brooklyn chiptune rockers, [Register or Login to view links]. They wowed us (and 5,000 others) at [Register or Login to view links] and really captured the sound we wanted for the game.

Here, the guys share their favorite songs from the game.

Ary Warnaar - "Twin Dragons"

I really enjoyed how the Twin Dragons cue came into existence. It was very unexpected. A couple months ago we were playing a show here in Brooklyn with Ok, Go. I was hanging out backstage with one of my good friends Damon who also happens to be one of the most talented chip artists I know (he goes by Starscream with his drummer George).

We were kinda bored and decided to start a collaboration italo-disco song on Game Boy. He started with an awesome bass line and...

3D Dot Game Heroes Goes Retro on PS3 this May

100°
257w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced that 3D Dot Game Heroes is going retro on PS3 this coming May and shared a launch trailer (below).

To quote: Many words and terms are frequently thrown around in relation to classic gaming: retro, old school, and so forth.

Often, games will be referred to as throwbacks, praised for their ability to induce nostalgia and capture the magic of the golden era of gaming. But really, what does "retro," or any of those terms for that matter, really mean in reference to a game?

That the game manages to accurately capture the look of a classic title or genre? The sound? The feel? Does it more effectively evoke memories of childhood for the gamer than other games? Does it shun complexity in favor of simplicity?

We ask the question because it's at the heart of our latest game (we're [Register or Login to view links], by the way, publishers of SMT: Nocturne, SMT: Persona 4, and the sleeper hit of 2009, Demon's Souls).





3D Dot Game Heroes for PlayStation 3 is the ultimate love-letter to retro gamers, the definitive homage to the action-adventure legends we all grew up with.

This is in part because...
