16w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Morgan Haro announced today that those who sign up for a 1-year membership in PlayStation Plus will get 3 months free.
To quote: We're continuing to bring you great offers here at PlayStation to start off 2013 right, and our latest deal can help you take advantage of everything PlayStation Plus has to offer for the rest of the year and beyond.
For a limited time, we're giving you three extra months of Plus at no additional cost when you sign up for a one-year membership.
The time to become a PlayStation Plus member couldn't be better. We ended 2012 with the addition of PlayStation Plus and the Instant Game Collection on PS Vita, for a combined savings of $2,472 for the year.
That includes free games and discounts for both PS3 and PS Vita, and we've got plenty more plans for PlayStation Plus in 2013. Yesterday we released our brand new Classic White PlayStation 3, which comes with a huge 500 GB hard drive (plenty of room for your Instant Game Collection).
The Classic White PS3 package also comes with a voucher for one year of PlayStation Plus - if you redeem the voucher during this...
19w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden has confirmed today that Velocity is getting remade for PS Vita as Velocity Ultra with details below.
To quote: Hello again! It feels great to be back - especially now that we're able to reveal a project that so many people have asked for: a native PS Vita version of our multiple award-winning PS minis game Velocity!
It's called Velocity Ultra, and it features Trophies, online high scores and a completely overhauled visual style at native PS Vita resolution. We're reworking all the art in the game, so the cut scene stills have been recreated at a much higher standard than before.
We're also unifying the art style throughout the game by ditching pixel art in favor of the edgy cartoon style.
The dinky (and rather pathetic) Quarp Jet now looks less dinky (and rather bad-ass)
We're also adding lots of visual effects. Here's what Velocity Ultra looks like at the moment. Note that the graphics look considerably cleaner when running live on PS Vita's screen.
The dark shading at each side of the screen focuses the action whilst explosions illuminate the environment to create a more dramatic experience. The PS Vita is a lot more powerful than the PSP, so we're able to add these lighting effects whilst still running...
23w ago - Danger Close Studios Level Designer Marc Janas has announced today that Medal of Honor Warfighter is getting new Zero Dark Thirty maps with pack details below alongside a video, as follows:
Zero Dark Thirty is a Sony film that chronicles one of the greatest and most secretive manhunts in history: the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
In our partnership with Zero Dark Thirty and Sony we're bringing you two Medal of Honor Warfighter multiplayer maps based on the areas in Pakistan where Bin Laden was hunted.
You've probably already heard about Chitral and Darra in the Single Player missions as you were looking for the Cleric in Chitral and chasing targets through the back alleys of Darra.
Now we're opening up these areas and providing more opportunity to explore them in a multiplayer setting. When deciding on these locales we really wanted to find areas that were both visually interesting, and fit within the fiction of the Medal of Honor Warfighter Universe.
The Darra Gun Market map contains a scenic river crossing with high intensity combat over the ravine, the gunsmith pit which is right along the docks, and the abandoned estate that provides an overwatch for the entire middle section of the map.
