200w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a follow-up interview video today with Final Fantasy XIII Producer Yoshinori Kitase and Director Motomu Toriyama to answer PS3 fan questions.
To quote: Earlier in the week, we told you we'd be meeting up with Square Enix to talk Final Fantasy XIII with Producer Yoshinori Kitase and Director Motomu Toriyama, along with the Battle Director Yuji Abe.
So all your questions went to the former, which you can read in full form below.
But the FFXIII love fest didn't end there. With the game less than a month away (March 9!), Jeff and I got to play a nice chunk of the game... enough to get familiar with the battle system to chat all about it with Mr. Abe.
In the video, you'll get an in-depth look into the game's battle system, which I have to say, once you understand it, it's quite intense.

201w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has posted up the first video of their FAQ on BioShock for the PS3 console.
To quote: We FINALLY got the invite up to 2K Games Marin to talk to the BioShock 2 team, and what better timing than a week away from the game's release on Feb. 9.
We certainly gathered by your abundance of Tweets that excitement for BioShock 2 is crazy high.
So on Monday, I sat down with Senior Producer Melissa Miller and Lead Environment Artist Hogarth de la Plante (with a chillingly lifelike Little Sister standing eerily behind us) who answered a heap of your questions - so many in fact that we had to split the video into two parts.
So today, you'll see part one that focuses primarily on BioShock 2's single-player campaign, including details on story development, philosophical influence, plasmids and much more. And head on back tomorrow for part two, which delves deep into the much-anticipated multiplayer mode.
And as usual, you delivered some good ones, covering off on all areas off the game's single and multplayer modes, the special Hunter edition and more.
Tim Jones from AvP developer Rebellion was on hand to field as I fired a list full of inquiries.
*And literally as I'm typing this, we just received word that an AvP online multiplayer demo is hitting the PlayStation Store tomorrow! So at around the 6:00 mark in the video when Tim mentions the demo, add your own mental voiceover with Thursday, Feb. 4. The demo will feature Deathmatch mode in the Refinery map, and will allow all three species to battle it out online.
203w ago - Today SCEE Social Media Manager Jem Alexander has announced that Sony is seeking your Final Fantasy XIII PS3 interview questions, which can be submitted via the link above on the European PlayStation Blog.
To quote: I still have to pinch myself to test that I'm not dreaming, but it only results in my arms being covered in bruises. Which means just one thing: Final Fantasy XIII really is releasing in less than two months time.
Okay, two things: Final Fantasy XIII really is releasing in less than two months and I need to cut my nails.
Luckily the wait will be slightly less painful for me because later today I'll be seeing the English version of Final Fantasy XIII in action and asking some questions to the game's producer, Yoshinori Kitase, and director, Motomu Toriyama. I can't bring you guys along and let you play the game with me (even though I'd love to!), but I can get your questions answered.
So make sure you fill up the comments section with your most burning questions and I'll pick the best ones tonight to ask to the guys behind the game.
Unfortunately it looks like I'm not going to get this one video'd, but at least this means you'll get your hands on the answers sooner.
