Shadow of the Colossus in 3D on PS3: Eyes On, Hands On

250°
193w ago - Today Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an eyes on, hands on peek at Shadow of the Colossus in 3D on the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: Looming majestically over the wind-swept plains, the Colossus lowers its ponderous head to peer at the tiny, curious creature scuttling before it.

Of course, that tiny creature is you. And before long, you'll be dangling from the great brute, magic sword clutched tightly in one small hand, as you prepare to bring the Goliath to its knees with a series of pinprick stabs.

Once the battle is over and you've slain the giant, you may be left to grapple with a haunting question: "Why?"

This is Shadow of the Colossus, one of the most highly regarded games ever released and a beacon to many game developers for its epic grandness, its subtle artistry, and its messy emotional context.

Along with Ico, Shadow of the Colossus is returning this spring in dazzling HD with robust (though optional) stereoscopic 3D support. I donned a pair of active-shutter 3D glasses to get a fresh look at Fumito Ueda's masterpiece running on the PS3.

Playing Shadow of the Colossus in 3D, I was immediately struck by the agoraphobic vastness of the landscape. The stark beauty of the world is far clearer...
 

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

50°
201w 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]...

207w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Aryeh Loeb has revealed today that the Killzone 3 PS3 Multiplayer hands on will be premiering at PAX 2010.

To quote: If you're heading to the [Register or Login to view links] in Seattle, Washington this weekend, we've got a bit of a treat for you: Killzone 3 will be there, and YOU can go hands-on with the game's multiplayer mode!

This will be the first time the Killzone 3 multiplayer mode is accessible to the public, so we're really anxious to hear what you think. To make sure as many people as possible get a shot, we've got 16 multiplayer pods set up, with 8v8 matches rolling over constantly.

On top of that there'll be seven single-player pods available, three of which sport glorious 3D! We'll be giving away Killzone swag bags at the booth so make sure you get down there early since quantities are limited.

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°
208w 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...
