138w ago - Capcom Europe Brand Manager Richard Earl has shared a video introducing Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes for PS3 today.
To quote: It's Rich from Capcom here today to talk to you about the next Capcom title, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes. This will be released on 15 October.
Hopefully you will have already heard of the game, but if you haven't, here is a quick introduction, in a form that everyone can easily understand... a fun fact list!
1) The game takes place during the Sengoku era in Japan. This period between the 15th and early 17th centuries was also known as the warring states period as many warlords and clan vied for control of Japan.
2) The decisive battle during this period took place at Sekigahara in 1600 which cleared the way for Tokugawa Ieyasu to establish the first Shogunate in Japan. This battle is also the main event in the game!
3) All of the characters in the game are based on real historical figures from the Sengoku era.
4) But not all of their moves and powers are based on real life abilities (well, strictly speaking we don't know that but I'm pretty sure they aren't all possible - check out the video if you don't believe me).
140w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Manager Jefferson Dong has posted up a new video today introducing Tumble for PS3 on PlayStation Move.
To quote: If you're getting yourself a PlayStation Move this week and you want a challenging game that shows off how awesome your new motion controller is, we recommend you look out for Tumble.
In Tumble, you use the motion controller to stack up and knock down blocks. There are over 50 challenges to tackle across single and multiplayer modes.
Balance, Solve and Destroy with blocks of all different shapes, sizes, weights and dimensions and reach into the screen like never before.
We're already starting to get great reviews, and you can try it for yourself by playing the Trial version on your PlayStation Move Demo Disc (which can be found in PlayStation Move peripheral bundles) or downloading it from PlayStation Store.
We'd now like to take you behind the scenes to learn some of the secrets from the development team, Supermassive Games.
The PS Move Is Too Precise?
We think Tumble has the most precise control system ever developed for a game: Every action you make with your motion controller is replicated on-screen perfectly.
153w ago - President and co-founder of ThatGameCompany Kellee Santiago gas officially announced their latest project- Journey for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: The inspiration for Journey came from Jenova Chen's feeling that in the modern world where man has so much power, we have lost an integral aspect of the human experience - awe towards the unknown.
And we can see this in our video games as well. But don't take it from me! Here's Jenova to talk about it more:
In today's society, man is powerful - We can travel at 60 mph; we can fly; we can connect with just about anyone, anywhere, at anytime. But on the street, people pass by each other ignoring the wonderful existence of other beings.
We are overwhelmed by the attention needed to gain and execute our own power - just like we are in most video games. While we are doing that, we can become isolated and insecure deep inside our mind.
On the contrary, when we are hiking in the wild, we become tiny and weak again. These feelings make every other person we encounter much more important and enjoyable. We greet them, giving them genuine and useful help. We might travel together for a period, learn from and rely on each other.
190w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared details of the White Knight Chronicles PS3 Online System... which includes voice chat, as follows:
On the first day of Tokyo Game Show, Level-5 took us on a tour through the online system of White Knight Chronicles. Now even if you've been keeping up with the previously-released Japanese version of the game, this will be news to you.
Online mode opens up for you once you've completed Chapter 1 in Story Mode, and features 3 main facets of play - GeoNet, Georama, and Subquests.
GeoNet is a social networking service for WKC online players, where you can meet and interact with other players to get set for multiplayer quests.
Georama is where you can design your own "HomeTown", which serves as a lobby for the online mode. There are 3 different fields to build your Georama in with 18 different combinations. You'll drop in buildings, infrastructure, and even modify the earth itself. A 2D city sim this is not. Examples were shown where players could make hedge mazes or pixel art in the towns.
What's cool is you can recruit NPCs from the story mode to come live in your town. The NPCs have jobs of different levels, which will further change the town. Also, you and others can shop in the shops that...
