129w ago - In preparation for Comic-Con, SCEA Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has shared a video today for Starhawk PS3 Single-Player from E3 2011.
To quote: As expected, E3 2011 was crazy fun and a gamer's dream come true. Every year E3 gets bigger and badder but this year's show was special for us: we finally got to unveil our multiplayer Capture the Flag mode for Starhawk!
So far, the feedback has been great. Starhawk was nominated for a bunch of E3 awards, including Best Shooter, Best Multiplayer and Best PS3 Game from G4TV.
During E3, the PlayStation.Blog team streamed live demos for a host of PlayStation games, including this 20 minute-long Starhawk tour that really shows off one of our single-player missions. Check it out above!
Here are a some impressions from members of the press that played Starhawk at E3:
"What stuck out was the combat from the air, the power of the Hawks, and the surprisingly convenient ability to jump seats in a moving vehicle."
"We're definitely excited to see more of this game, including its extensive single-player campaign."

A week ago, Sucker Punch shared a couple of new inFAMOUS 2 missions, as well as the full download, so to speak, of the game's User-Generated Content tools.
A full UGC suite in a game like I2 is a new experience on PS3, so what can you do with it? And how difficult is it to put something together? Sucker Punch Senior Game Designer Karl Deckard sat down with us to demonstrate how to remix something fun.
As a huge devotee of the first inFAMOUS, I was eager to get my hands on the DualShock 3 to try out the new single player levels. Here are my impressions to go along with the video:
This mission from the 2nd island of New Marais finds me stepping into the trainers of Evil Cole. He's got a sickly pallor, and his every attack glows a fierce red. Eeee-vil.
This mission sends Cole on a search for a blast core - and more power - somewhere in the warehouse district. As I make my way towards the target on the mini-map, I try out the revamped parkour system.

The Killzone 3 Single-Player PS3 demo is now available to all via PSN, versus only PlayStation Plus Subscribers, using a simple work-around.

By making a false Hong Kong account, you can easily download the demo one week ahead of time and bask in the loving warmth that is the Killzone 3 single-player demo, or you can continue to play the Killzone 3 multiplayer beta and wait the extra week.
As posted by a user on NeoGAF, here are some simple steps to create a Hong Kong account with ease:
How to make a Hong Kong PSN account:

149w ago - Today a new Killzone 3 PS3 MP video is available via YouTube courtesy of the EU PS Blog, and SCEA's Product Marketing Specialist David Bull has revealed details on the KZ3 Single Player PlayStation 3 demo which will hit PSN this February.
To quote: Today we are giving you a sneak preview of one of our new Killzone 3 Multiplayer levels: MP08 Kaznan Jungle. It is a tight, intricate map especially catered towards one of our new game modes, Guerrilla Warfare.
The Kaznan Jungle harbors the wreckage of a downed ISA Cruiser. Survivors of the failed evacuation of Helghan must fight for their lives against a Helghast enemy bent on their annihilation, but they are not the only predators in the area... The jungle, the plants and insects that call it home are friend to no-one.
You will also get to see the Infiltrator at work in this video. The infiltrator hides in plain sight, using deception to confuse the enemy while going about his tasks. His basic equipment consists of an M13 shotgun and a holo-emitter that allows him to disguise as a member of the opposing team.
