44w ago - Sony's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with today's PlayStation Plus Gamescom 2012 updates below, as follows:
It's Gamescom week and PlayStation Plus is out in force!
If you've been paying attention then by now you will have heard the fantastic news that cloud storage is being increased from September, up to a ma-hoosive 1GB for all your game saves, and that PS Vita Plus is also on the way - stay tuned for more details on that.
And of course you know who's coming to town on 5th September for the next Game of the Month...literally one of the most enormous titles of this console generation. What's more, two new titles as well in September, one brand new and one new to PSN - we're spoiling you rotten for sure.
First, though, let's stay focused on August. It's time to strap on your parachute and grappling hook for some serious regime change, as Just Cause 2 (83) comes zipping into Your Instant Game Collection, available for the next 12 weeks until 7th November 2012.
As agent Rico Rodriguez, your orders are to find and kill your friend and mentor, who has disappeared on the island paradise of Panau.
With 400 square miles of rugged terrain, plus hundreds of weapons, vehicles, missions and Rico's trademark parachute...
44w ago - Sony Assistant Producer Dais Kawaguchi has officially announced their new PSN title Rain today and invite fans to watch the PS3 trailer below!
To quote: Japan Studio has a pedigree in creating a breadth of incredibly unique games, so it is no surprise to see that their next is a stylistic, original title.
Crafted by a team of talented creators known as PlayStation C.A.M.P., we're pleased to introduce their latest game, rain.
In this dark, mysterious world, you take on the role of a boy who becomes invisible, so his figure can only be seen in the rain. Freshly revealed at Gamescom, watch the announce trailer for a first look at this wondrous story.
That's all for now, but keep an eye out for more news about rain in the coming months.
44w ago - Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan has made available a new Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time video trailer from Gamescom 2012 today confirming that fans who buy once will get it on PS3 and PS Vita.
To quote: Hello from Germany! I'd like to talk about the cool stuff we're showing off at this year's Gamescom for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
First and foremost, we'd like to introduce you to a new Cooper ancestor, Salim Al Kupar. You'll meet Salim as Sly travels back in time to the enchanted world of ancient Arabia - a land of magic genies, flying carpets and lost treasures.
Sly quickly discovers that Salim is nearing retirement and looking forward to taking a little break from thievery, but recent events have put an end to those plans! Now Sly and the gang will need to goad the slightly recalcitrant Salim back into action as they work together to restore his legacy.
We're also giving you a look at a brand new mission in Arabia so you can see Salim in action. We find him on a quest to free one of the members of his band of thieves from a strange imprisonment. To do so, he must use his signature ability - the Cobra Climb.
This technique allows him to rapidly ascend vertical ropes, chains or poles to quickly evade an attack. This comes in very handy as he makes...
44w ago - Capcom Social and Community Manager Neil Gorton has shared a video spotlighting Remember Me for PS3, which he proclaims sticks in the mind at Gamescom 2012.
To quote: Capcom is pleased to announce its brand new title Remember Me for PlayStation 3, shown for the first time yesterday during our press conference at gamescom!
Players will take on the role of Nilin and be swept into the future world of Neo-Paris where memories are bought and sold in an age where social media and sharing have been taken to the extreme.
Once a feared enforcer for the agency that controls this information, Nilin finds her memory wiped clean and must fight to find out the truth about who she is and why this was done to her.
Not only does Remember Me look absolutely stunning but the gameplay is something Capcom is really proud of. Not only are there moments of extreme action on par with any big name game out on the market today but stealth and cunning are equally as important in this augmented world.
Combat, as you can expect from Capcom, is satisfyingly bone-crunching with plenty of opportunities to execute mind blowing combos.
Perhaps most interesting of all, however, is the ability to hack into the memories of your chosen targets. This...
