7w ago - Trion Worlds Director of Community Elizabeth Tobey has revealed that Defiance is out today on PlayStation 3 alongside a video launch trailer!
Below are the details, as follows: Defiance, the massive open-world shooter from Trion Worlds, is out today on PS3. Set in 2046, Defiance puts you in the shoes of an Ark Hunter.
Hired by Von Bach Industries to scour the terraformed San Francisco Bay area for valuable alien technology that has crashed onto earth, your adventures are the result of a massive war that waged for years on the ground and in the skies.
During your journey, you'll team up with fellow Ark Hunters in order to find more tech, weapons, and loot. There will be times when you'll find yourself facing off against other players: in Defiance, friends are a rare and ephemeral commodity.
Get a taste of what awaits in our full-length launch trailer "Welcome to the New Age" featuring "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons.
Read more about Defiance soon and head to http://community.defiance.com to get the latest info on the game. Welcome to the new age, Ark Hunter. Good luck.
13w ago - Blizzard Co-Founder & Chief Development Officer Frank Pearce has revealed that Diablo III is coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 with details below.
To quote: Now that Diablo's out of the bag, I just want to say that we're stoked to be bringing Diablo III over to PlayStation. We got our start in console games, and a bunch of us, myself included, have been looking forward to this day for a very long time.
We're putting a lot of work into doing Diablo III right for PS3 and PS4. All of the upgrades we've made to the PC version since launch will be included. On top of that, we're completely redeveloping the interface, controls, and camera so that the traditional Diablo hack-and-slash, loot-collecting, dungeon-crawl feels natural and fun with a controller in your hands.
I know a lot of people will have a lot of questions about the game, and we look forward to getting into all of that as development progresses. For now, I just want to say thanks to all of you who kept pushing us to get back to console, and please come check out the game at PAX East if you're in Boston in late March.
13w ago - According to a recently uncovered Sony patent, it appears they are planning to implement a new form of interactive advertising in their next-generation PS4 / PlayStation 4 gaming console.
Below are the details from DualPixels.com (linked above), to quote: "SCEA is going next gen even with advertisements. Discovered just before PS4's imminent announcement, this new Sony patent shows new motion tech which allows you to interact with the advertisement.
This new form of marketing allows users to speed up the time of the ad by collaborating with it to complete virtual food orders; think Burger King.
The patent also seem to have a ton of social inter-connectivity as rumored that PS4 would sport large amounts of integration with the social networking universe. Check it out for yourself."

40w ago - Senior Producer Jeff O'Connell has revealed on Sony's PlayStation Blog today that Sleeping Dogs officially wakes on PS3 tomorrow!
To quote: It's been a long journey. Even now, it's hard to believe that Sleeping Dogs launches tomorrow.
It's a little odd given how the game is primarily a single player experience, but I think it's as we start seeing the online leaderboards fill up that the reality sets in: we made it.
It's obviously not the end of our time with the world we spent over five years piecing together, but it definitely marks a turning point - the time when we release a game once named Black Lotus, then True Crime: Hong Kong and finally Sleeping Dogs to you.
From here on Sleeping Dogs isn't living inside a bubble, but instead exists as a part of gaming's ever-growing cultural canvas. How big a part is in your hands - rest assured we have poured our hearts and souls into making our protagonist Wei's world one we feel you will enjoy.
Up to now we've seen a lot of focus on the systems we have crafted - the combat, the driving, the social hub - but we're most excited to see how people receive the story. Wei Shen's triad odyssey is the glue that holds all these other tasty parts together.
With it, Sleeping Dogs goes from being a collection...
