50°
189w ago - SCEE Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has announced news of reliving old favorites in the PSN Sphere as part of this weeks PlayStation Home content update.

To quote: December is a great month for events, and so it is that this week we announce the launch of the PSN Sphere public space.

The brand new PSN Sphere will showcase the top PlayStation Network titles and act as a hub for accessing the uniquely themed event spaces devoted to each title. At launch, the Sphere will host three classic and much-loved event spaces: Fat Princess, Hustle Kings and Gravity Crash.

In addition, those who love puzzles should try out the maze mini game, in which you'll use the SIXAXIS controller to navigate a glass ball towards a portal against the clock. There's a reward on offer for each area navigated... if you're fast enough!

The Sphere will be worth revisiting over time, as it grows with information about upcoming titles as well as themed areas for the best titles; the first of which is due soon, and is sure to send a shiver down your spine!

Christmas: a time for good food, good times... and good sledging! The good people at Audi have taken their long-held interest in all things winter sports related to another level with the design of their technically peerless Audi...

Video: Kung Fu Live PS3 Interview Spotlighting PlayStation Eye

50°
190w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a video interview today spotlighting Kung Fu Live PS3 with the PlayStation Eye.

To quote: Kung Fu Live is the camera-based beat'em-up that will be released on PlayStation Store tomorrow.

It uses the PlayStation Eye to throw you into a comic book world of martial arts, giant enemies and spectacular superpowers.

I recently caught up with Teemu Mäki-Patola, CEO of [Register or Login to view links], to take an early swing at it myself and grab an interview.

Why did Virtual Air Guitar decide to try something so ambitious with its first game, rather than go for something more traditional?

Our background is in university research where we were working on things like virtual reality interfaces, so that's our interest as well as our expertise and we wanted to bring some of that to the gaming market.

We believe that we can use our research to bring new experiences to games, which is why we set up the company.
