Sony Introduces the SOCOM 4 PlayStation 3 Character Squad

50°
231w ago - Sony's Creative Director Ed Byrne has introduced the SOCOM 4 PlayStation 3 character squad today to fans, as follows:

Hey SOCOM fans. Back in March, we announced SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs and shed some light on the single-player campaign, storyline and central characters.

Today, we'd like to provide some intel on the key members of your squad...

Cullen Gray ("OpsCom")
Force: NATO ISF
Age: 36
Leading the charge is Operations Commander, Cullen Gray. Born the son of a naval analyst and a civilian geologist, Cullen Gray's service record is the stuff of legends. While renowned for quickly and quietly resolving some of NATO's most tenuous situations, psychologically his profile is still something of a mystery.

Routine profiling shows that he is withdrawn and cynical, choosing to socialize little with colleagues and showing a distinct lack of empathy for those unwilling to comply with his directives.

Park Yoon-Hee ("Forty-Five")
Force: South Korean 707th Special Missions Battalion
Age: 30
Park Yoon-Hee got her start in the Southern Korean 707th Special Mission Battalion. Within eighteen months she was attached to the 45th Special Forces Brigade after the Korean military relaxed restrictions for female...

Video: FuturLab Introduces Coconut Dodge for PS3 / PSP on PSN

50°
234w ago - Today FuturLab's Managing Director James Marsden has introduced Coconut Dodge, which will be hitting PSN soon for both PS3 and PSP.

To quote: Over the next few weeks I am going to be sharing our story about how a bunch of ambitious Flash developers became licensed to make games for PlayStation, and how we've made the move from Flash to PSP!

First of all, let me give you an overview of our upcoming PSP and PS3 minis game, [Register or Login to view links], due for exclusive release on PlayStation Store in May.

GAME PLAY

Coconut Dodge is a hypnotically addictive arcade game in which a player must dodge falling coconuts, weave through airborne mazes and play beach ball keepy-uppy to collect giant shiny treasures. As you can see from the video, the game starts quite easy and gradually ramps up to insane levels of coco-bullet action!





RACE MECHANICS

What makes the game so addictive is the combination of the predictable mazes and the random coconuts and beach balls. It makes the experience similar to a racing game, where the first few attempts at a new track are difficult, but once you've learnt the track, you can hone your movements to perfection whilst confidently dealing...
