143w ago - DCUO Game Director Mark Anderson has shared a DC Universe Online Fight for the Light video trailer direct from Comic-Con today complete with PS3 DLC details.

To quote: Greetings from San Diego Comic-Con! Here on the show floor we're happy to be showing DC Universe Online's first expansion pack - Fight for the Light.

Light powers have been a huge fan request since before launch, and we've created an entirely new power set from the ground up with new abilities that deliver on the power fantasy of wielding light constructs in combat.

We've put way over-the-top weapons that you could only imagine right into your hands! We've worked hard to build on the existing gameplay mechanics that players love, and to apply them in unique ways that give the new powers a look and feel all their own.

Exercising your creativity and bringing your imagination to the fight is a huge part of being a Lantern, and we wanted to bring that feeling to our players. With light, players will now be able to combine weapon-based combos and superpower abilities in way that just feels right for a Lantern.





You can create things like hard-light boxing gloves and use them as a new "on the fly" weapon that comes complete with its own combos. Not only...

100°
143w ago - Today Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has revealed a new PS3 trailer video for The Heist alongside details via Q&A session.

To quote: After going hands on with PAYDAY, media referred to it as "Left 4 Dead with Banks" and "My favorite discovery of E3." With the game's release scheduled for later this year, we had some questions of our own. Fortunately, OVERKILL obliged, with creative director Simon Vicklund providing detailed answers about the game, as well as this new trailer.

PlayStation.Blog: What was the inspiration for PAYDAY: The Heist? Why was it important to focus on four-player co-op and not going the Left 4 Dead route with 4 v 4?

Simon Vicklund, OVERKILL Software: The idea came from way back - a pet project of sorts for the guys on the team. Part of what eventually caused us to start working on the project was the profound truth that Dane Cook shared when he said that "every guy wants to be part of a heist" - we realized how incredibly accurate that statement is, haha.

Then of course, a lot of inspiration came from several epic Hollywood movie movies such as "Heat", "The...

148w ago - Following up on the previous article, today the full PS3 QA Flagging Method has been revealed including the button combo and token alongisde a PS3 QA Tutorial from Slynk.

To quote: A few weeks ago, several steps were revealed in the process of unlocking a special Quality Assurance (QA) mode on your PS3 console. The mode unlocks a special mode, which is typically only meant for official Sony testers.

Unfortunately, the steps revealed were only part of the process. Developers were scrambling to figure out the button combo that unlocked the special QA mode. In addition, developers still needed to figure out what to change in the QA dummy token. These two mysteries prevented developers from unlocking the mode.

Today however, the Quality Assurance mystery comes to an end. An anonymous and reputable source exclusively revealed to us the two remaining steps. The secret button combination that unlocks the hidden QA mode was revealed to us as being L1+L2+L3+R1+R2+dpad down. Furthermore, the anonymous source told us that users need to change byte...
 

New Resident Evil Revealed in PlayStation: The Official Magazine

200°
158w ago - Today Editor in Chief Gary Steinman of the PlayStation: The Official Magazine has revealed news of a new Resident Evil for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system alongside a video trailer below!

To quote: Who needs to wait for E3? It's a month of massive reveals in the May issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine.

We start with our cover story, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

First, a quick note about what Raccoon City is not. Raccoon City is not a survival horror game. Go on–let that sink in for a second. Yes, the granddaddy of survival horror breaks from the very thing that's defined it for over 15 years, instead delivering a wholly unique squad-based shooter experience, with the talented folks at Slant Six now handling the development duties.





We saw the game in action and survived to tell a tale of shambling zombies, elite operatives, and a mission to "kill Leon." Indeed, nothing is sacred here, including the long-standing heroes of the Resident...
 

Resistance 3 Multiplayer Revealed, PS3 Beta Later This Year

300°
163w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has revealed Resistance 3 Multiplayer details today, and confirmed the PS3 Beta will be coming later this year.

To quote: As this post goes live, we are revealing our all-new multiplayer for Resistance 3.

We've said all along we wanted Resistance 3's MP mode to bring the best of both Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2's MP and co-op modes, and you're about to see just how we've managed to do that.

Resistance 3 will feature 16-player Human vs. Chimera deathmatch and objective-based modes set in locations across the globe.

That may seem somewhat jarring after the 40 and 60-player mayhem in RFOM and R2. Rest assured though, our biggest motivation in determining our new player count was the fun times that we and the community had on maps like RFOM's Busyard and Rooftops, as well as the Bayou House and San Francisco maps in Resistance 2.

Resistance 3 will offer a very deep and customizable progression system. Players can create their own progression paths through multiplayer, spending their hard-earned points to customize loadouts that fit their unique playstyle.

We learned...
