27w ago - Sony Contributing Editor Julien Bourey has shared details today from David Cage, who talks about Quantic's supernatural epic Beyond: Two Souls below!
To quote: There are few forthcoming PlayStation 3 titles that are quite so keenly anticipated as Beyond: Two Souls, the latest project from Quantic Dream - the idiosyncratic French developer behind acclaimed 2010 adventure Heavy Rain.
Following the story of young Jodie Holmes (played by Hollywood starlet Ellen Page) and her mysterious supernatural companion, Aiden, it lit up E3 earlier this year with its stunning reveal trailer.
We've not heard too much since, so we caught up with Quantic's founder, David Cage, at Paris Games Week for a quick progress update.
We've not heard too much about Beyond since its E3 reveal back in June. Is development going well?
David Cage: Development is going very well. Indeed, it's nice to go to all these shows but we also have to make the game! We're advancing - we're now a few weeks off the alpha version. It's always a very critical moment in the development of a game since it's the first time all the game data is assembled in a complete version.
This first version is often not very playable, but it's the first time you can see the "complete"...
31w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has posted up a fresh video trailer today announcing that Mugen Souls will be hitting the PlayStation 3 this coming Tuesday alongside an NIS America update below.
To quote: I'm dropping by today to briefly talk about our upcoming RPG title Mugen Souls, developed by Idea Factory and Compile Heart.
Mugen Souls is set to release next Tuesday, October 16th, so I'd like to go over a few of the game's awesome features and game mechanics. Afterwards, I'll recap a few of the announcements we made at Tokyo Game Show 2012 a few weeks back. Here we go!
Story-wise, in Mugen Souls you can expect the typical humor and zaniness you've come to expect from NIS America titles. You'll enter a small galaxy in the universe containing seven worlds, shimmering in seven colors... These worlds exist and act independent of one another.
This has allowed them to develop and nurture rich, unique cultures. One day, a decree was sent out... "I'm gonna make everything in each of these worlds bow to me!" This reckless statement came courtesy of the egotistical, yet strangely cute, "Chou-Chou."

38w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared a video interview today with David Cage from Gamescom 2012 who discusses Beyond: Two Souls below.
To quote: Beyond: Two Souls, Quantic Dream's rabidly anticipated follow-up to Heavy Rain, ceded the limelight at Sony's gamescom press conference last week to various other freshly-announced titles, as the French studio got on with the hard graft of development.
However, studio boss David Cage was on hand to offer us a quick progress update.
Check out our interview below for more on Beyond's refined approach to storytelling, Cage's verdict on working with top Hollywood talent for the first time and how Quantic's ground-breaking graphics tech has evolved since Heavy Rain.

To quote: Greetings! Yesterday was my first time at San Diego Comic-Con and I was amazed at the people I saw! What costumes! It's great to see so many people embracing their passion.
After such an amazing E3, I was lucky enough to come here to speak to some incredible supporters of the game in a panel hosted by IGN's Greg Miller. Joining me was the lovely and talented Ellen Page, who we are very lucky to have playing BEYOND's main character, Jodie Holmes.
We had a great discussion about how we are combining the latest in performance capture technology and amazing acting talent in the hopes of creating a truly unique and emotional experience for all of you to enjoy.
We were also happy to reveal additional talented cast members, Kadeem Hardison and Eric Winter, experienced actors who you may have seen both on TV and film.
