59w ago - Sony Game Director Todd Papy has shared a fresh God of War: Ascension PS3 trailer and early PlayStatio 3 Beta access details today!
To quote: It's been a little over a month now since we announced the God of War: Ascension Beta and we know you've been anxiously awaiting news on when you're going to get a chance to slash, disembowel, and crush your way into the pantheon of Olympus...
The God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta is coming to PlayStation Plus this winter. Keep reading to find out the only other way to get in, and how to get in early.
Some of our fans have already had the chance to play the Desert level of our new multiplayer mode at E3, Gamescom, and PAX. However, the multiplayer action has come a long way since then and this winter, Plus subscribers get to go hands-on with all-new multiplayer action that we haven't yet shown.
If you've been following the Ascension news thus far, you know that in God of War Multiplayer, each warrior will align themselves with one of four Gods. Each God will grant a different set of unlockable powers, armor sets, and abilities, which leads to a unique style of play for each God "class."
The first God you'll be able to align with in the Beta will be the almighty Zeus, so to help you get ready, we have a new trailer...

61w ago - Giant Sparrow Creative Director Ian Dallas has announced today that The Unfinished Swan flies to PSN on October 23 and has confirmed early PS Plus access too.
To quote: When you make a game about something unusual like, say, throwing paint in an all-white world, you expect to get a lot of questions. But we were surprised that the question we got asked the most turned out to be "when can I buy it?"
Now we have an answer: you can buy The Unfinished Swan on October 23rd exclusively on PSN for $14.99. And if you're a PlayStation Plus member, you can get the game a week early - October 16th.
In the meantime, there's still a lot to learn about the game. You've met the King, now get to know us: the team behind it all.
In the first of a series of developer diaries, we'll lift the curtain and give you some background on Giant Sparrow, the beginning of The Unfinished Swan and how we landed on PlayStation Network.
Check it out:
Leading up to launch on October 23rd, we will be back to dive in and show you all you need to know about The Unfinished Swan. For more news about the game you can check out the Giant Sparrow company...
64w ago - Tarsier Studios Community Coordinator Simon Rosenkotter has posted up a new LittleBigPlanet PS Vita trailer today along with some early review highlights below.
To quote: As some of you may have seen already, copies of LittleBigPlanet PS Vita have been popping up early at various retailers.
If you've been lucky enough to snag a copy, I hope you're enjoying the early access! Keep in mind, the servers won't go live until September 18th, so online play won't be available for another day, but you can still play the game offline in its entirety.
And now that you're beginning to dig into Sackboy's latest mobile adventure, we have a whole bunch of goodies and treats to show you.
LittleBigPlanet PS Vita has been developed by Tarsier Studios and Double Eleven with a brand new story that takes place not on Craftworld, but on the travelling planet of Carnivalia.
Once the bringer of joy and laughter, Carnivalia has now been taken over by the mysterious Puppeteer and his evil henchmen, the Hollows! Now it creates joy only to steal it all back again. So, it's up to Sackboy to save the Omniverse when the game officially launches in North America on September 25th!
In celebration of our launch, we have a brand new trailer for you, which takes a closer look...
92w ago - For those who are not PlayStation Plus subscribers, today Associate Product Marketing Manager Brian Dunn has outlined how you can still obtain Journey early access alongside pre-order program details below.
To quote: If you have been following Journey, then you're probably as excited as I am about its release next week on March 13, as the first game in our Spring Fever event this year.
The reviews so far have been fantastic, and I can't wait to get online and experience the game online with other Journey fans.
If you caught Friday's update from Kellee, the last line of her post about big news coming Monday probably had you wondering what sort of news might be coming.
Well, earlier this morning I'm sure you saw this month's PS Plus blog post revealing that Journey will be available this week for all PS Plus members, one week ahead of the normal release date. What's more, this early access purchase comes with a bonus, an exclusive PS3 dynamic theme featuring some concept art from the game.
And if you're not a Plus member, we are also launching a special pre-order program as well. You'll be able to put your money down for the game and get hold...
