113w ago - Today SCEE Manager James Gallagher has shared a video trailer and interview with Dust 514 on how it will change console shooters forever below!
To quote: We haven't heard a great deal about DUST 514 since it was shown at E3 2011, other than that it's a first-person shooter connected to the vast sci-fi universe of PC MMO EVE Online, and that it's coming exclusively to PlayStation 3.
When developers CCP made the trip from Iceland to London to outline their vision for this new addition to their immensely popular EVE universe, I came out of the meeting amazed at the scale of the project. Suffice to say, DUST 514 is not just another shooter.
After the meeting, I interrogated Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer at CCP, to find out exactly why PlayStation 3 owners should be getting excited.
PS.Blog: With EVE Online, CCP already has a huge, engaged community. Why are you now trying to break into the console FPS market?
Brandon: EVE Online is an incredibly deep MMO and, for better or worse, that comes with a typical perception that it is complicated. The common joke is that you have to overcome a 'learning cliff' to get involved.
Part of the thinking behind DUST 514 is to address those preconceptions; we accept that there is a barrier...
113w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has posted up a video today introducing fans to the Uncharted 3 PS3 multiplayer experience!
To quote: Just a few days ago we teamed with Subway to launch the full competitive multiplayer experience for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception in the United States.
We are pumped to see everyone online one month before the full game's release on November 1st.
The PlayStation Blog spoke with Game Designer, Robert Cogburn, to learn more about what you should do when you first log on to the full competitive multiplayer experience.
When you first get online to play there are some very important menus in your profile to navigate. Not sure what kickback or load outs to use? How do you get more cash and rank up? Want to know Robert's suggestion for the best guns and load outs for new players? Check out the video for answers to these questions and more valuable information:
Even if you have already jumped headfirst into the action, be sure to watch the video as it will provide some great pointers to help amp up your experience. If you still haven't made that trip to Subway hopefully this video whets your appetite to get there and dive into the complete Uncharted 3 multiplayer...
113w ago - Today XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has shared a video introducing Corpse Party for PlayStation Portable fans below.
To quote: So you've taken an interest in Corpse Party, have you? Perhaps you were intrigued by the launch trailer, or laughed at the name when you saw it mentioned on your favorite gaming news site (or hilarious webcomic?).
Perhaps you're a fan of survival horror games, or visual novels, or point-and-click adventures... or perhaps you simply enjoy Japanese horror movies like The Ring and The Grudge, and are always looking for your next fix.
Regardless of why you've taken an interest or how you got to this blog, there's one thing that most likely holds true: You have very little idea what Corpse Party actually is.
Our launch trailer focused on the most important aspects of the game - those being its unsettling atmosphere and its dark-as-night storyline - but did very little to indicate exactly how it's played. So, let's dig a little deeper and find out exactly what horrors await, shall we?
In the broadest terms, Corpse Party is a horror adventure game. You play as an ensemble cast of seven senior high school students, one junior high school student and one senior high school English...

113w ago - PlayStation Network Director of Marketing Brandon Stander has shared an NHL PS3 GameCenter App guided video tour video today and announced that fans can stream live hockey games on the PS3 in HD!
To quote: The 2011-12 hockey season drops the puck on the ice, and the PS3, today!
That's right, the PS3 is still the only gaming console to stream live out-of-market hockey games in HD, and this season, in addition to enhanced streaming capabilities, users in the United States and Canada can now download the new NHL GameCenter application for free.
That means users who enjoy free access to PlayStation Network and do not have a subscription to NHL GameCenter LIVE can still have access to a wide range of NHL content through the NHL GameCenter application, including features such as post-game highlights, team schedules, standings, player stats and full NHL scoreboard.
Of course, if you are already an NHL GameCenter LIVE subscriber, you can also stream every 2011-12 regular season game in High Definition on the PS3 - local blackout restrictions do apply.
Just like last season, NHL GameCenter LIVE allows subscribers to watch full-length and condensed replays of...
