Sony on Integrating the Music Unlimited Service with Bravia TVs

50°
124w ago - Sony's Greg Belloni has announced today news regarding the integration of their Music Unlimited service with Bravia TVs.

Below are the details, to quote: If you own one of Sony's 2012 BRAVIA TVs, you'll be able to quickly and easily answer the following question: "Who sings that song?"

2012 Bravia TVs will feature Sony TrackID, allowing viewers to, with a push of a button, identify any song that's being played during a TV program they're watching.

By using Gracenote's advanced audio fingerprinting, Sony TrackID will show the song name and artist information for music played during TV shows, movies and even commercials.

Even better? After identifying the song that's being played, viewers will see direct links to the songs and/or artists on the Music Unlimited service, where listeners can listen to the whole song or more from that band or artist.

This is just one of the ways we're continuing to bring the Music Unlimited service to subscribers across a host of connected devices. Find out more [Register or Login to view links].

100°
124w ago - Sony European Product Manager Mayumi Donovan has announced today that Ecolibrium is arriving on PlayStation Vita tomorrow.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone. So, you've already been introduced to the wonderful world of Discovery Apps for PlayStation Vita via the weird and funny Frobisher Says!

If you're wondering what's next in line for the series, I'm happy to confirm the arrival of Ecolibrium.

Ecolibrium is an imaginative real-time eco-system simulator where the aim is to maintain harmony within your own created environment. You need to select creatures, plants and artefacts to create a balanced eco-system.

If your eco-system is not balanced, you can feed your animals manually or exile unwanted animals into the wilderness using Vita's near feature for others to pick up for their respective eco-system.

Grow your world by hunting fantastical creatures from the environment around you using GPS or, if you prefer, you can sell or buy them in the online player-to-player auctions.

It's all in aid of giving your eco-system the perfect harmony, so don't be shy! And if you're competitive, try online challenges and climb up the global leaderboards.



 

Sony Adds More Titles to PlayStation Store Retro Games PSN Sale

50°
124w ago - Sony's Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team has announced the addition of more titles to their PS Store Retro Games PSN sale today!

To quote: Hello everybody. I hope you are all enjoying our current Retro Sale.

Just a quick update - I have been listening to all your comments and have got some more deals for you! See below for the full list of additions.

Now you will notice that Resident Evil 2 is on the list but be warned, this DOES NOT currently work on the PS Vita. We are aware of the issue and are trying to fix it - hopefully it will work on the PS Vita soon but I don't have an ETA yet.

Once the game has been fixed you will be able to re-download the game for PS Vita, but for now you can only purchase it through your PS3. Sorry to disappoint with this but I will see if we can replicate the offer once it is working for PS Vita - though I can't make any promises.

I recommend buying it now on the PS3 (if you have one) for the future to avoid disappoint on missing this sale opportunity.

These discounts will start on Wednesday 12th September once the weekly store update has happened. All offers will end on 19th September....
 

Sony Goes Behind The PS One / PS2 Classics with MediEvil

250°
125w ago - Following up on their previous lookback, today Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton goes behind the PS One / PS2 Classics with the popular MediEvil PlayStation video game.

To quote: The second entry in our Behind the Classics series is a real lost gem - SCE Cambridge Studios' wild, wacky supernatural adventure MediEvil.

First released on PSOne back in 1998, it put you in the shoes of Sir Daniel Fortesque - an undead knight unwittingly reanimated by the evil sorcerer Zarok who embarks on a quest to liberate the kingdom of Gallowmere.

A sequel followed in 2000, with a PSP remake also popping up on PSP in 2005, however, it's the original game that remains most embedded in the memory.

With Sir Dan soon to enjoy a comeback of sorts as a playable character in PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale, we sat down with original designer Chris Sorrell to find out more about the game's development.

PlayStation.Blog: What was the original concept for the game? Did you draw inspiration from anywhere in particular for the game's look and feel?

Chris Sorrell, Game Designer, MediEvil: The first design proposal for the game had the working...
