Video: Sony Showcases New Starhawk Build to Kill PS3 Trailer

50°
111w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has showcased a new Starhawk Build to Kill PS3 trailer today, complete with details below as follows:

As most of you know, Starhawk is a frenetic 3rd person shooter with a ton of toys to play with. Its got a strong solo story campaign, deep 32 player head-to-head and even co-op! You can run, fly and drive almost anywhere you want.

Its vehicular combat at its finest. The most popular question we get from players unfamiliar with the game is "What is this thing called Build & Battle?"

Simply put its a dead simple way to build up a base all around you while staying in the middle of a fierce battle. Its not block building and its not slow. We're not making Sim City. To show you, here is a nifty trailer!

In Starhawk we have one simple slogan..."Kill to build, build to kill."

It's not a gimmick. Its a really easy way for players to change the battlefield on the fly, in an instant straightforward manner. Its about dropping gigantic crates from orbit, having them smash down in front of you and having a big laser or bunker build right in front of you. You can even drop them on enemies ("Dorothy'd").





So other than dropping massive structures...

112w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has unveiled nine tips and tricks for next-generation handheld gamers below today!

To quote: If you've picked up PS Vita then you've probably been too busy plowing through the dense launch line-up to have spent much time browsing the Settings menu.

Luckily, you don't need to - we've spent plenty of time with PlayStation's new crown jewel and we've put together a few favorite tips and tricks we wanted to share. Of course, this is just a start: We want your tips, too!

You can even change the background color or image by tapping the theme icon in the bottom right of each frame. Get creative and design your own background images (which you can transfer to your PS Vita via PS3) like James Gallagher from the EU PlayStation Blog did here.

2. Let there be light. You can adjust your PS Vita's OLED screen brightness mid-game without the hassle of jumping...

To quote: I know it was only a week ago since I was last here re-introducing Binary Domain, but it brings me great pleasure to actually be here discussing the game now that it's actually available to purchase in the shops (as of this very moment).

Allow me to give you a quick recap about the game before I get into more detail about the multiplayer modes offered for your enjoyment. Playing as Dan Marshall you're caught in the middle of a fast paced and intense battle for humanity in a robot-infested 2080 Tokyo.

Dan's mission, as part of the peace-keeping R.U.S.T. crew, sees him and his squad mates fighting through both the slums of the derelict lower city and the vastly contrasting wealthy upper city environments in order to get to the bottom of recent events.

What begins as a search for the truth evolves into the squad questioning their surroundings and the choices they make; are the robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like...
