Sony Details Split / Second PSP Hands-on: Feeling the Burn

50°
195w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared Split / Second PSP hands-on details today in what they call 'Feeling the Burn' of the upcoming title.

To quote: I know what you're thinking, and yes, the airplane still crashes onto the track in the middle of the race on the Airport Terminal track.

Track layouts also distort dynamically, environments crumble realistically, and towers teeter and topple majestically under the destructive spark of Split/Second's signature Power Plays.

In short, despite the smaller screen size, Split/Second's PSP incarnation does not skimp on the spectacle. The PSP version releases on November 16th with four-player ad-hoc Wifi multiplayer, and this week I took a pre-release version of the game for a spin.

Thanks to some dazzling real-time lighting and particle effects, Split/Second on the PSP looks remarkably similar to its PS3 big brother. The tracks layouts are nigh-identical, and the gameplay zips along at a speedy clip, blasting energetically through every one of its 30 frames per second no matter how many fireworks are on the screen.

The controls have been been subtly tweaked to accommodate the mobile nature of PSP gameplay, and they feel tight and responsive on the analog stick and d-pad. You can still [Register or Login to view links]...

So be sure to visit the Killzone 3 booth at PAX 2010 (that'd be the one patrolled by Helghast Troopers), to get your first taste of the game's single and multiplayer modes. And bring your buddies, because Brutal Melee is also part of the package.

One last thing: keep your eyes out for collectible art cards we're giving out at the Killzone 3 booth with the image above....
 

Hands On with Spiderman Shattered Dimensions for PlayStation 3

50°
202w ago - Content Producer Barry Keating has shared some hands-on feedback on Spiderman Shattered Dimensions for PlayStation 3 today via the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is shaping up to be pretty slick Spider-Man adventure, not just because it's a wholly original game ripped from the pages of the Marvel comic, but because you get to play as four (count 'em!) alternate Spider-Men.

The finest example of a Spider-Man game to date - for me anyway - has been Spider-Man 2 The Game on PlayStation 2. It brilliantly fused the open world ideas behind Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto series with Marvel's comic book crown jewel: Spider-Man. Developer Beenox looks set to match that spectacular combination on a whole new level with Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

While not entirely an open-world game (you can still explore the world and compete in up to 180 challenges, a large chunk of which will require repeated playthroughs), Shattered Dimensions thrusts you into a four alternate Spider-Man universe. They are: Amazing Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099 and Spider-Man Noir with each one housing its own unique attribute.





For example, Ultimate Spider-Man puts you...

Hands-on with Upcoming PSN Shooter Dead Nation for PS3

50°
206w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some hands-on details of the upcoming PSN shooter Dead Nation for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: I was itching to get my mitts on Dead Nation, the upcoming PSN shooter from the creators of Super Stardust HD. Luckily, I got some extensive play time from last week's NYC PlayStation media day. Here's what I learned.

You can upgrade your guns... a lot. Dead Nation's environments are dotted with fenced-in "safe zones" that give you a chance to catch your breath and buy supplies from a nearby gun shop.

In addition to buying health and ammo, you can purchase mods that will enhance your various weapons in different ways, depending on the gun. The mods upgrade stats such as damage, ammo capacity, firing rate, reload time, and range.

While the most potent weapon upgrades are expensive, you can pop open car trunks and chests found through the environments in order to collect cash and other useful items.

The Shotgun is devastating. The Dead Nation build I played featured three weapons – the Shotgun, SMG, and Rifle – with more to come in the final version. Early on, I decided to pour my money into repeatedly upgrading the Shotgun's damage and spread capability.

The results...
