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

100°
226w 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.

1. No title for your guy?...

Video: Landit Bandit for PS3 Arrives on PSN Tomorrow

100°
228w 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.





The game is aimed at anyone that enjoys flight games or physics-based games in general, or anyone that wants to play something different...'cause we are confident...

231w ago - Today Bearded Ladies CEO Haraldur Thormundsson has revealed that Landit Bandit for PS3 will be hitting PlayStation Network on June 23, 2010.

To quote: Let us introduce ourselves and our little project [Register or Login to view links] which will be available via PlayStation Store from 23 June 2010 for €12.99/£9.99.

We are five gamers that are commonly known as [Register or Login to view links]. We started this tiny studio (in Trollhättan, Sweden) at the start of 2009.

At that point not a single person in the team had worked on producing a commercial game, but the past year we have been lucky enough to live every hardcore gamers wildest dream; To make our own game for PS3.

The game itself, Landit Bandit, is a homage to several old classics such as Ugh!, Moonlander, CrazyTaxi and the ever entertaining Liero. It actually started out as a tool for rehabilitation of stroke patients, but that is a longer story for another time. Here is a collage of really old stuff and programmers art for now...

So we took something that looked marginally better then the above and made an entertaining splitscreen duel that we brought to the Nordic Games Conference last year. Our tiny indie booth had quite a few players...
