Video: Sony Goes Hands-on with Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

111w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with some fresh video footage on Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time below.

To quote: Earlier this week, Rey and I visited Foster City-based Sanzaru Games, the developers of this fall's Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

As the first original PS3 entry in the classic PS2 thieving series, and the first to be developed outside of Sucker Punch Studios, Thieves in Time represents a long-awaited return to form as well as a natural entry point for series newcomers.

Where Sly 2 and Sly 3 let you slip into the roles of Sly's partners in crime, Thieves in Time expands upon that concept by granting you control of Sly's infamous ancestors - the Cooper Clan members named in the hallowed pages of the Thievius Racoonus. In one chapter set in ancient Japan, I played as Riochi, Sly's sushi-slinging ninja ancestor.

Slinking past sleeping guards while searching for a special set of sushi knives, I used Riochi's Leaping Dragon ability to soar through laser fences and other high-tech traps designed to derail the Cooper Clan's devious destiny.





Other playable ancestors, including the medieval...
 

European PSN Game Store Updates for February 29, 2012

200°
112w ago - Today Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN updates below, as follows:

Update: Sadly Killzone 3 Multiplayer will only release as a Trial today. We're working hard to get the unlock available as soon as possible.

And so, we reach a new Wednesday which only means some more updates to the PS Store. Have you guys been keeping busy with your new Vita, or has your PS3 seen a little bit of lovin', too? So long as some gaming is being done, that is what I want to hear.

This week you'll notice some changes in the list of updates. Instead of the previous list that we used to run with we're now listing the information in a table format, which I hope is clearer to our readers.

You'll also notice Australian pricing has now been added as some of you had requested this a few times. There may be some occasional changes to the layout so we can get things just right, but hopefully this will be what you'll be seeing from now on.

So, down to the nitty gritty!

Choplifter HD, Bioshock 2 and the Jak and Daxter Trilogy all make their way to the store this week. Choplifter HD has been asked about a fair bit so I'm glad this is now out. I also know some of you had to wait an extra week to get your paws on Jak...
