141w ago - Zipper Interactive Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has posted up the SOCOM 4: Killzone 3 promo code PS3 Beta schedule and details today, which runs from March 29 to August 4, 2011.
To quote: The SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs testing pool is about to get even bigger! Starting tomorrow, at 12:00am Pacific, the SOCOM 4 voucher codes that were included as giveaways with Killzone 3 (and at our PAX East 2011 booth) become active.
This new influx of players will join the existing crowd of previously introduced PlayStation Plus and Private beta testers, and will have all the same privileges as the one-week and two-week vets.
If you didn't receive an early access voucher or don't have a PlayStation Plus account, don't fret! Starting April 5th, the all-access beta will be openly available for download through the PlayStation Store. While the beta download will be removed from the Store with the April 12th PlayStation Store publish, SOCOM 4 Beta servers will be up and running until April 13th.
Though our servers are open all day, every day we do limit what modes are available so that we can keep our testing focused. Here's how the schedule looks this week:
143w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared some fresh Batman Arkham City PS3 screenshots and details today for fans.
To quote: My flatmate cites Arkham Asylum as his favorite game, and when I got home and told him that I'd been to see it at Warner Bros. London office, he put his fingers in his ears and turned the stereo up. It confirmed something I'd been thinking on the train home: this is one of those games that we're better off not knowing much about.
There's five of us in the private screening room and Dax Ginn, marketing game manager at Rocksteady, has just played through an early mission from Arkham City, lasting around 30 minutes, which I'm not going to spoil for you. We are free to call out questions afterwards and one journalist asks, "Will we see anything like the Scarecrow missions from Arkham Asylum?"
"Did you like the scarecrow stuff?" he replies to slow nods. "Well we did too. Aren't you glad that you didn't know about the Scarecrow levels before you played Arkham Asylum? If they had been part of the marketing campaign they wouldn't have had that kind of impact, so I'm just going to leave it there."
The biggest difference between Arkham City and its predecessor is the move to a more open setting. In the intervening 18 months, Quincy...
154w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has shared a new video today which includes an Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception PS3 Interview and details alongside some fresh gameplay videos below.
To quote: We're not closing out 2010 quietly! I'm sure it's been hard to miss that another wave of information, interviews, screenshots and gameplay video for UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception hit the internets today.
You're just seeing the fruits of the nefarious plan we've had in the works for a couple of months now. Okay, that's not quite true, but it sure sounds way better if it's all dramatic, right?
A good part this wave comes from the event we held for the media just after the Spike VGA 2010 - you read about that here on the PlayStation.Blog a couple of weeks ago when the first batch of info on UNCHARTED 3 gameplay was released.
PlayStation Blog was there not only to check out UNCHARTED 3 with their very own eyes, but they got managed to snag Creative Director Amy Hennig and Game Director Justin Richmond to answer some questions in the video above.
