11w ago - Tecmo Koei Europe Community Manager Chin Soon Sun announced alongside a video trailer that Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters launches today and fans can try it for free!
To quote: Fighters! It's been a while! Today I would like to talk about Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters which will be available FREE on PlayStation Store from this Wednesday, 25th September.
So, what is Dead or Alive?
For the uninitiated, Dead or Alive is a 3D fighting game series that first hit arcades in 1996. After first gaining attention for its intuitive fighting system, the series has since gone on to sell around the world.
The series was brought back for the first time in series years with the release of Dead or Alive 5 in September last year, boasting updated graphics and fighting mechanics.
What's new in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate?
In Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, developer Team NINJA has added an abundance of new online features, stages, game modes and the addition of both new and fan-favourites to our already extensive cast of fighters to deliver the 'ultimate' in fighting entertainment with features enjoyable from casual to competitive fighters.
We have added several fan-favorite characters to the biggest roster in franchise...

19w ago - Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari revealed today that the Killzone: Mercenary MP Open Beta for PS Vita arrives in late August while the Closed Beta is live now.
To quote: We're excited to announce that the Killzone: Mercenary closed multiplayer beta (for which signups were held a short while ago and already concluded, if you're just tuning in now) is now LIVE. To those who got in, you should already have the necessary information to jump in and get going.
Note: If you received a multiplayer Beta voucher as part of the promotion via PlayStation Home, please note that your voucher is for the Open Beta in late August, not for the closed Beta launching today.
To those of you who didn't get in or are just hearing about this now, worry not: we're going to open the multiplayer beta right on up in late August - details will be coming really soon, so stay tuned.
And really, who doesn't like a good open beta? They're a bit draftier. They let in more natural light. Better for Agoraphobes and such.
Killzone: Mercenary hits shelves in North America on September 10th, 2013.
19w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Lost Planet 3 for PlayStation 3 with details below, as follows:
Jim Peyton's wife, Grace, keeps him warm in the ferocious cold of E.D.N. III with her easy smile and knowing looks. Even though she's off-world, her video messages are enough for Jim, the star of Lost Planet 3. He's here to do a job, earn some credits, and get back to his family.
It's easy to see the wild west influences of Capcom's co-developer, Spark Unlimited, in Lost Planet 3, which launches on August 27th in North America.
The developers at Spark return the series to a more primal, personal experience, more in line with the cult hit original that eschews Lost Planet 2's tropical detour and large-scale cooperative design.
The core of Lost Planet 3 is Jim. He's a no-nonsense guy - well written, acted, and instantly likeable. He's thrust into his role on E.D.N. III as a rig pilot and construction expert, but he's soon slinging guns and sipping on hot soup to bat off the native critters and cold, respectively. He carries a pistol he's not afraid to use, and he's willing to tackle the hard jobs at a moment's notice... assuming there's hazard pay involved.
22w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green announced today that Killzone: Mercenary Closed Multiplayer Beta PS Vita sign-ups are now live.
To quote: Sign-ups for the Killzone: Mercenary closed beta start today! Enter here for a chance to be selected as one of the few participants in the exclusive multiplayer closed beta.
Candidates have until 2:00PM PDT on Wednesday, July 17th to sign up for the public's first look at Mercenary's impressive multiplayer package. If chosen to participate, you will receive an email with directions on how to get started.
Mercenary's multiplayer suite will provide players with a diverse range of weapons, grenades, armor, and special VAN-Guard devices enabling the player to customize their multiplayer load-out slots. This customization supports the tactical element of the game; will you armor yourself up and go in like a tank, or take a more precise approach and assassinate enemies stealthily?
No matter your tactical approach, Mercenary's multiplayer beta will give gamers an early look into the power and promise of PS Vita as the optimal handheld platform for first-person shooters.
