Sony Announces The Walking Dead: Episode 3 Hits PSN Today

100°
112w ago - Director Eric Parsons at Long Road Ahead has announced that The Walking Dead: Episode 3 is officially hitting PSN today!

Below are the details, to quote: We continue to be blown away by how much people want each new installment of The Walking Dead. As soon as we get an episode out the door, we're immediately hit with people wanting to know when the next one will hit.

It's incredible and we're so grateful for everyone's excitement and support. Today we can confirm that The Walking Dead: Episode Three - Long Road Ahead will launch August 28th (today!) on PlayStation Network in North America.

We've been hard at work making sure this installment will put players through the emotional wringer in this morally grey story set in the world of Robert Kirkman's comic book series.

Episode Three - Long Road Ahead is going to push some truly mind-warping decisions on you. A zombie apocalypse is horrific not only because of the undead, but also because of the depths that humanity will sink to in desperate times. You're going to have to choose paths that I don't think have ever really been explored in a video game before. I can't help but wince with the knowledge of many of the choices we've created for you to make.

This is our most emotionally turbulent episode yet,...

Sony Goes Behind The PS One / PS2 Classics With Jak And Daxter

50°
112w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton goes behind the PS One / PS2 Classics today with Jak and Daxter as detailed below courtesy of the PS Blog.

To quote: When I took over the SCEE PlayStation Blog a month or two back, I promised you a few new regular features.

Today, I'm happy to unveil the first of them: Behind The Classics. Every fortnight (well, that's the plan at least), we'll be talking to the creative force behind a vintage PS One or PlayStation 2 title.

To kick things off, Naughty Dog co-founder Andy Gavin was kind enough to lend us his time to discuss the making of seminal 2001 PS2 platformer Jak & Daxter.

We've got the next few entries in the series lined up, but please feel free to leave your suggestions for future interview subjects below. Manage your expectations - these people aren't always easy to track down - but we'll do our best.

Anyway, without further ado, over to Andy...

What was the original concept for the game? Was it a deliberate attempt to create a PlayStation 2 mascot to rival Crash Bandicoot?

Andy Gavin: Of course we wanted the franchise to be as big - or bigger - than Crash. And while this didn't quite come to be, it was certainly our goal.

The formulation of new game ideas involves...
