114w ago - Sony VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has shared a video below in celebration of PlayStation Nation's Long Live Play with fans today.
To quote: Hello PlayStation Nation, Early last month, with some ambiguity, we announced that we were looking for a few good gamers to assist us with a special assignment related to our freshly launched Long Live Play campaign.
Long Live Play honors gamers from all walks of life and recognizes you for making PlayStation who we are today.
We asked members of the PlayStation Nation to email us with pictures of themselves holding their PS3 controller and in 30 words-or-less, describe how they epitomize the ultimate PlayStation gamer. I know that PlayStation gamers are some of the most impassioned fans in the world, but I was blown away by the thousands of responses that flooded my email.
After weeks of anticipation, I can finally reveal the complete ambition behind Long Live Play. I'm delighted to announce that we've painstakingly reviewed each submission and selected a dozen or so die-hard gamers to represent the PlayStation Nation in a brand new Long Live Play campaign that will air on national TV starting October 5th....
114w ago - Today Producer/Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has confirmed alongside sharing a video trailer that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken will be hitting PSN on October 18, 2011.
To quote: With our first post in July, we introduced you to our upcoming title Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, and for our second post in September, we touched a bit on the genesis and character design of the Rocketbirds. In this third post, we wanted to talk a bit about the cutscenes and music videos we created for the game.
But first, here is the preview trailer of the game!
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken takes you on a cinematic platform adventure through Albatropolis, as you hunt down the Penguin's corrupt leader, Putzki. Along the way you'll have to kill many penguins, solve puzzles, incite revolution, and maybe pilot a few jetpacks.
Originally, for Rocketbirds: Revolution! (the Independent Games Festival 2010 triple finalist browser game) we created the first opening sequence ('Robot' music video) as a way to keep people interested while the first game assets were being streamed to people's computers.
When we'd completed it, it worked well to bridge the waiting time (it's a lot more entertaining than watching a download status bar), but...
114w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has made available a video today from October's Qore, which features Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3, Tim Schafer and PlayStation Move.
To quote: This month's Qore covers two ginormous titles along with a profile of Double Fine's creative genius Tim Schafer.
Soaring into the depths of Gotham's shadows, Qore's Episode 41 takes us into the world of Batman: Arkham City. Qore's high definition preview covers the story, environments, improved fighting mechanics plus all the familiar bat-villains.
With fighter jets, awesome vehicles, and authentic weapons, Qore jumps into Battlefield 3 with Dice Executive Producer, Patrick Bach, to preview both the 32 player combat and immersive single player game play.
Veronica Belmont also catches up with industry leader Tim Schafer for a trip down memory lane, as he remembers his early days at LucasArts , working with Jack Black, and his more recent work on innovative games such as Stacking.
October is also a big month for PlayStation Move. With many new titles set to launch, Veronica gets into the groove of Everybody Dance, Little Big Planet Move edition, Eyepet & Friends, and Carnival Island. Enjoy October's Qore!

The Combat phase is not only about testing out your...
