221w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared several Ubisoft video game title updates that are destined for PSN today, including Beyond Good & Evil HD, Scott Pilgrim DLC, From Dust and Outland!

To quote: In addition to the games - From Dust, Outland, Beyond Good & Evil HD and Scott Pilgrim DLC - Ubisoft also revealed future Facebook integration for titles like the upcoming Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.

"You will continue to see brands like Assassin's Creed across all content types," Ubisoft VP of Digital Publishing Chris Early told us. "We want the player to experience the brands whenever and however they want."

We also went hands on with the titles listed above. Here are some quick recaps:

Videos: Kevin Butler - New Zealand TV3 Promo and PS3 Montage

100°
231w ago - Today Sony's VP of International Diplomacy Kevin Butler has shared two videos- a New Zealand TV3 oromo and a PS3 Montage, as follows:

As the star of PlayStation's current advertising campaign, I get compliments on my performances just about every other day.

But recently it has come to my attention that a certain television network named TV3 has created an amazing homage to my marketing prowess.

A commercial that is nearly identical to one we created here in the states aired on TV in New Zealand, found its way to the internet, and ultimately to my desk. Few film greats have been treated to a shot-for-shot shrine (actually I think it's just me and Alfred Hitchcock).

If you haven't seen our PS3 "Montage" ad in question, here it is:





And Here's TV3's ad:





It's been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If so, color me flattered. However, I do have some constructive criticism for the work that I would like to share.

Video: Landit Bandit for PS3 Arrives on PSN Tomorrow

100°
232w ago - Bearded Ladies CEO Haraldur Thormundsson has announced that Landit Bandit for PS3 arrives on PSN tomorrow, July 13, 2010 and shared a video trailer.

To quote: Let us introduce ourselves and our little project [Register or Login to view links] which will be "landing" on the PlayStation Store on July 13th for $9.99.

We are five gamers, commonly known as "The Bearded Ladies," that have been lucky enough (or mad enough!) to live our dream of making a game for the PS3. We never gave the low odds of success a second thought – and that's just as good as we (two programmers from the auto industry, a janitor, a liquor store salesman, an expedition leader from Nepal) would never have made a PS3 game. We've included a picture so you know what you are dealing with here.

The game, Landit Bandit, is a wacky 3D helicopter adventure that pays homage to several old classics such as Ugh! and Crazy Taxi. The controls are intuitive and resemble Moonlander in 3D, but are deep enough to have you playing for hours to master them.
