Babel Rising on PSN Today, Unleash God-Like Powers with PS Move

50°
97w ago - Mando Productions Marketing Director Michel Bams has confirmed that fans can unleash God-like powers with PS Move in Babel Rising which hits PSN today!

To quote: Available later today on PSN, Babel Rising puts god-like powers in gamer's hands as they smite humans who are attempting to build the Tower of Babel.

Conjure up a series of divine powers - tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes and more - to halt the progress of the pesky humans.

When developing the game, we looked to really empower the players. Having players use these powers with a PS3 DualShock controller was great, but we wanted to really immerse the players and make them feel powerful, which led us to integrate the PlayStation Move motion controller.

The precision of PlayStation Move led to the development of our movements - a small gesture and a large gesture. We wanted to create believable movements that empowered players.

Releasing the smaller powers, which occur frequently, would require smaller gestures while the devastating ultimate powers demand much larger, powerful gestures.

In addition to the fun of feeling almighty, the PlayStation Move also offers a good balance to the player between concentration and action.
 

Video: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Powers Up for PlayStation 3

350°
104w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has posted up a video today spotlighting Tekken Tag Tournament 2 powering up for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!

To quote: Though Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has been available in arcades since earlier this year in the States (and back into September in Japan), the revamped PS3 version brings numerous new characters and a new training mode that re-imagines the series' previously established mini-games.

While the main fighting mechanics of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feel familiar to anyone acquainted with the series' staccato combat style, the console version introduces a few new ways to lock horns with worthy competitors.

You can now fight opponents in several configurations - two against two, two against one, and one against one - and each of these modes is available at any time.

In matches that pit one character against two, the disadvantaged player receives a more generous life bar but obviously cannot switch fighters when the going gets rough. Conversely, the player with two fighters will have to pay close attention; in true Tekken tag form, you'll lose the round if either character is KO'd.

50°
184w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a look back at PSN's The Tester Season 1 winner Will Powers today alongside a glimpse of what he's doing now.

To quote: It's been almost six months since the end of the inaugural season of "The Tester". In April, we introduced you to our first winner, Will "Cyrus" Powers.

As we prepare for the second season of "The Tester," set to premiere on Tuesday, November 2, we thought it would be a good time to catch up with Will about his experience as a QA Tester for PlayStation, how it has affected his gaming habits and impacted his trophy collection.

So what's up with Will these days? Well, here's what we learned...

Kevin Furuichi, executive producer for PlayStation Network: It has been six months since you started working at Sony. What has the experience been like?

Will Powers, winner of "The Tester": The experience overall has been a blast. Testing may not be a super glamorous position, but its importance within the industry cannot be overstated. Being able to get my hands on games six months, sometimes even a year, before they are released is still just as exhilarating as it was the first time. But, the most rewarding...

Mgestyk Fusion and Wiimote Equals Jedi Powers... Almost!

50°
283w ago - The guys over at Mgestyk Technologies have been playing and come up with a pretty awesome melding of gaming technology dubbed Mgestyk Fusion, currently available for Windows XP and Windows Vista.

To quote the link above: If you've tried games like Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and the recent Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Lightsaber Duels on the Wii, you may have been disappointed that the in-game lightsaber does not always match how you are holding the wiimote.

Introducing Fusion from Mgestyk Technologies: Fusion is a patent-pending technology which combines Mgestyk's gesture processing with other sensor data such as from Nintendo's wiimote.





It looks pretty cool to me. It's a shame we won't see it on the PS3 until either someone hacks it for homebrew or Sony buys Nintendo.

Continued: We'll be demoing this at MIGS next week along with some of the games from our first video. What follows is a description of what the new video shows and how Mgestyk Fusion enhances gaming with a wiimote:

If you want to swing the wiimote around like a lightsaber, you will most likely not be pointing the wiimote at the Wii's sensor bar.

On the Wii console, the sensor bar allows the console...
