157w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has shared a new video today spotlighting Uncharted 3 PS3 multiplayer modes, and confirmed that the PlayStation 3 Beta arrives on June 28, 2011.

To quote: Just a few days ago we hosted a large press event with editors from the US and Europe where we gave everyone a first taste of our expansive multiplayer mode in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.

First off, Uncharted 3 multiplayer is a complete evolution from the initial foray we made into multiplayer with Uncharted 2.

The leap forward in gameplay, technology – not the least of which is 3D stereoscopic support – and depth is nothing short of astounding, no joke.

Our goal has always been to take the signature Uncharted gameplay and our penchant for awesome set-piece moments to serve as the key building blocks for creating a multiplayer experience like no other. We dipped our toe in with Uncharted 2. Now, with Uncharted 3, we're diving in headfirst.

Last fall, I got a first look at Outland, a side-scrolling action game that casts you as an urban sophisticate-turned-spiritual warrior.

The dreamlike visuals, fluid platform mechanics, and sharp sword-based combat pointed to a fascinating PSN game.

Since then, developer Housemarque (creators of PSN classics Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD has been busy fleshing out the game with details that will make fans of the classic 2D side-scroller Castlevania: Symphony of the Night beam with delight.

A gorgeously illustrated introductory cinematic introduces you to the protagonist, a nameless, faceless modern-day urban dweller haunted by visions of a vast wheel, endlessly turning.

Maddened by the visions and unable to find relief, the protagonist seeks out a mystic shaman who guides him on a path of spiritual awakening and alerts him to a timeless, cyclical battle with a pair of god-like Sisters who created the world and now seek to destroy it. Guess what? The fate of the world is now in your hands. Lucky you!

"The Sisters are the final bosses in the game," explained Producer Adam Sarasohn....

Sony Quiz Reveals God of War 3 to Have PS3 Online Co-op Modes

250°
231w ago - Update: According to Examiner.com God of War 3 will not feature online co-op after all, per Eric Levine of Sony's Product Public Relations who simply stated: "This news is false."

This weekend a Sony employee questionnaire has leaked God of War 3 details of upcoming PS3 online co-op modes.

According to a quiz on the Sony Retail Loyalty Site module (which educates retail workers about upcoming Sony products), God of War III will indeed include online co-op modes when it is available in March, 2010.

As the quiz comes from an official Sony-funded Web site, it's safe to assume this is valid, although no official comment has been made from the company as of yet.

To quote: "You read it right! God of War III will feature online cooperative modes.

There have been rumors flying across the Web regarding cooperative modes for God of War III, but I am here to confirm it to all. March 2010 just cannot come soon enough!"
