211w 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°
212w 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...

Hands-on with Upcoming PSN Shooter Dead Nation for PS3

50°
216w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some hands-on details of the upcoming PSN shooter Dead Nation for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: I was itching to get my mitts on Dead Nation, the upcoming PSN shooter from the creators of Super Stardust HD. Luckily, I got some extensive play time from last week's NYC PlayStation media day. Here's what I learned.

You can upgrade your guns... a lot. Dead Nation's environments are dotted with fenced-in "safe zones" that give you a chance to catch your breath and buy supplies from a nearby gun shop.

In addition to buying health and ammo, you can purchase mods that will enhance your various weapons in different ways, depending on the gun. The mods upgrade stats such as damage, ammo capacity, firing rate, reload time, and range.

While the most potent weapon upgrades are expensive, you can pop open car trunks and chests found through the environments in order to collect cash and other useful items.

The Shotgun is devastating. The Dead Nation build I played featured three weapons – the Shotgun, SMG, and Rifle – with more to come in the final version. Early on, I decided to pour my money into repeatedly upgrading the Shotgun's damage and spread capability.

The results...
 

Video: Hands-on with PixelJunk Shooter 2 for PlayStation 3

216w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a hands-on video today spotlighting PixelJunk Shooter 2 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

[Register or Login to view links] and Dylan Cuthbert are cooking up plenty of new tricks for PixelJunk Shooter 2, the follow-up to the 2009 PSN title that mixed retro-styled audio-visuals with progressive gameplay mechanics.

But once I picked up the controller at last week's NYC PlayStation media day, I discovered that PixelJunk Shooter 2 expands upon this formula in several key ways.

Light and dark. I quickly learned that darkness is not your friend in PixelJunk Shooter 2. Traveling though a dark area for more than a few seconds will attract invulnerable apparitions - the spectral remnants of a "lost civilization" – and almost instant death.

Faced with a long, shadowy tunnel, I turned my cannons on a nearby phosphorescent mushroom. While it bobbed like a metronome, I was able to stay within its small orb of light to pass through the tunnel unscathed.





That's when I discovered another threat lurking in the darkness: worm-like parasites that latched onto my ship's hull and slowed my movement to a crawl. Once exposed to light, the worms...
