DC Universe Online Home Turf PS3 DLC is Available Today

50°
82w ago - DC Universe Online Executive Producer Larry Liberty has announced that DC Universe Online Home Turf PS3 DLC is available today with details below, as follows:

Today our latest DLC pack - Home Turf - went live! Home Turf is our sixth DLC and brings with it the biggest addition to DC Universe Online since the launch of the game two years ago - Player Bases.

Bases are a player-created and controlled space that can be used as a venue of self-expression in addition to being a place for combat. Perhaps the most important part of your Base is the Mainframe. Through it, players can unlock several new abilities. In a lot of ways it's like having your very own Bat Computer.

The thing you're likely to notice when you first enter your Base is a terminal on the wall next to the front door. This is your Base's Control Panel, and by interacting with this you can relocate or rename your Base, or enter Decoration Mode.

Decoration Mode pops you into a first-person camera, allowing you to easily zoom around your Base, placing and moving items and amenities. The latter can include things like an R&D Station, Broker, Mailbox, or Bank. Basically, the things that you otherwise would need to visit a Safehouse or HQ to use - in the convenience of your own home.

Video: Uproar: Free-to-Play Shooter Hits PlayStation Home Today

50°
97w ago - Lockwood Publishing Director Sophia Coney has announced that the free-to-play shooter dubbed Uproar is hitting PlayStation Home today alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: Uproar is a frantic and fun third-person shooter exclusive to PlayStation Home. Why play cover to cover when you can free roam?

Uproar is the first avatar based free-roaming third-person shooter in PlayStation Home and it pulls out all the stops to bring you an experience unlike anything seen on the platform before.

The game is extremely easy to jump into and play, the controls and gameplay will be instantly familiar to anyone who has played a third-person shooter before, however there are some very interesting tweaks to spice up the gameplay and keep it all feeling fresh.

We think it'll give you and your friends countless hours of fun battling it out within the Uproar Arena.

Pick your side. You can choose to fight on the side of either of our two gangs; the Outlaws or the Swyfts, as they battle for respect within the Uproar Arena.

Each gang has its own unique set of clothing available within the inventory screen (all of which is wearable outside of the game), as well as a set of gang booths in the Uproar Lobby to hang out in with your fellow gang members and chat before...
 

Intellivision Comes to PlayStation Home with Updated Game Classics

100°
102w ago - Intellivision Productions Inc President Keith Robinson has announced today that Intellivision is coming to PlayStation Home with updated video game classics!

Below are the details, to quote: Intellivision Productions, Inc. is excited to announce three of its classic games are coming to PlayStation Home.

Astrosmash, Shark! Shark! and Night Stalker, which thrilled players in the early 1980s, have been upgraded while staying true to the spirit of the games' classic looks and game play. We think of them as "enhanced yet completely faithful conversions," but we call them Intellivision Gen2.

When the Intellivision console was introduced in 1980, it drew attention with its 16-bit graphics. Of course, it takes more than great graphics to make great games, and Intellivision fans quickly discovered the fun of iconic games such as Astrosmash, Shark! Shark!, Night Stalker and many others.

Until now, the games released by Intellivision Productions and its publishing partners have primarily been exact, faithful reproductions - usually deliberate emulations - of the original titles.

While this great for players who want to relive their childhoods, we've wanted to try updating the games a bit; putting in some features we would have liked to put in back then.

PS3 Dev Q&A: Home's Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove 2.0

50°
102w ago - PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Cade Peterson has shared a PS3 developer Q&A interview spotlighting the Battle for Black Powder Cove 2.0 in PlayStation Home today.

To quote: Last week, PlayStation Home got an update to the action-packed free-to-play multiplayer game, Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove.

With this news, we jumped on the phone to chat with Michael Mumbauer, Director of the Visual Arts Service Group (VASG), a madly creative department within Sony Computer Entertainment America. VASG has been helping make Home content nearly since Home went Open Beta and has made some of the platform's most entertaining items and spaces, including the Home Mansion.

Although VASG creates art and code for other development teams, like several of the World Wide Studios, this is their first full game.

Michael was kind enough to let me ask some questions that will shed a little insight on the decisions that went into this 2.0 update.





PlayStation.Blog: VASG has created content for Home for years, but when Home transitioned to a game platform in itself, it was the next logical step for them to step their game up and make one. What was the original concept behind Cutthroats,...

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] is the first 3D city-building game where you can create your dream city from the ground up, explore it at street level as your own avatar, and share your metropolis with friends - and it's coming soon, exclusively to PlayStation Home.

We've been hard at work on Home Tycoon for quite some time here at Hellfire Games, and we can't wait to get the game out to the Home community.

Featuring a robust city-building simulation, tons of story-driven missions and activities, vehicle driving (complete with turbo-charged cars and stunt ramps), and over 50 avatar rewards to unlock, Home Tycoon is unlike anything you've seen in the genre before, and the first game of its kind in PlayStation Home.

From Hometown to Metropolis

As the newly-elected Mayor, you'll gather resources and broker strategic business deals to kick-start your town's economy.

You'll need to work with representatives from the mysterious yet eco-friendly TransUtopia organization and the profit-hungry GloboSyn corporation along the way. Will you lead a truly green city built...
