Video: Epic Mickey 2: Warren Spector Explains the Power of Two

200°
126w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video today spotlighting Epic Mickey 2 where Warren Spector explains the power of two below.

To quote: When Epic Mickey launched in 2010, PS3 owners could be forgiven for feeling a wee bit left out.

The game was an ambitious, passionate love letter to decades of rich Disney history, casting a newly assertive Mickey Mouse in a bittersweet tale set against a backdrop of decaying Disney lore.

But sometimes patience pays off. Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is coming to PS3 this fall with extensive support for PlayStation Move, vastly improved HD graphics, and a host of much-requested improvements.

I spoke with Creative Director Warren Spector to learn more about Epic Mickey 2, his work on the Deus Ex series, and his early thoughts on PS Vita. For more, listen to our full conversation on the latest episode of Official PlayStation Blogcast.

Unsurprisingly, PlayStation Move motion controls will serve as a key focus for Epic Mickey 2, though specifics remain scarce for the moment. "When we originally conceptualized the game," Spector explained, "we wanted to give Mickey control of the stuff he's made of - paint and ink.

126w ago - Media Molecule Studio Director Siobhan Reddy has announced today alongside a video trailer that LittleBigPlanet Karting is coming to the PS3 entertainment system!

To quote: Earlier this year, we cut some cake and popped some champagne to celebrate Media Molecule's sixth birthday!

We've had an awesome time during the last six years, seeing how the experiment we started here in Guildford has grown, giving rise to a thriving LittleBigPlanet community. This year will be no different, filled with DLC, plus new experiments from the LBP family for you to play with.

You already know about the fantastic LBP work that Tarsier Studios and Double Eleven Studios are doing on LittleBigPlanet for PS Vita, and now we are delighted to announce today a new LBP collaboration with the hugely talented team at United Front Games who will be leading a new project called LittleBigPlanet Karting!

We've all seen that UFG has a wealth of racing experience and they're also intimately familiar with LBP's cornerstones of "Play, Create, Share." With LBP's powerful and diverse toolset in their capable hands, LittleBigPlanet Karting is sure to be an adventure that both LBP fans and kart-racing fans alike will enjoy!

We are eager to see what you think of this union and especially excited...
 

Video: PS Vita PSP HEN Demo, Kernel Access Through Exploit

1000°
126w ago - Following up on the PSP SaveGame Exploit on PS Vita from a few days ago, today PlayStation Vita hacker wololo reports that [Register or Login to view links] has obtained PSP Kernel access on PS Vita through another exploit with a PS Vita PSP HEN demo video and details below!

To quote: Famous PSP dev Davee just posted a YouTube video showing him running PSP homebrews on a Vita. I initially thought “well, not a big surprise, he’s running his own port of VHBL to some random exploited game”, but it turns out this is much more interesting than that, as he managed to get a PSP Kernel exploit running on the PSP Emulator.

Davee had hinted a few days ago on twitter that he had PSP User mode access, but it’s a surprise to see Kernel mode today. What this means to the end user is full homebrew compatibility (unlike VHBL which is hit and miss), and potentially down the road, PSP iso loaders (the video actually shows a psp iso running). Check his video below:





The video shows a minimalist interface called “PRX Loader” which seems to be used to run the homebrews. No word...
 

Video: First Look at Resistance: Burning Skies PS Vita Story Trailer

50°
126w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Associate Product Marketing Manager Derek Osgood has made available a first look video trailer today of the story in Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita handheld console!

To quote: With Resistance: Burning Skies marching steadily towards its May 29th release date on PS Vita, you may have been wondering who Tom Riley is and where his story fits into the grand scheme of the Resistance universe.

Today we're clearing up that question with a new story trailer you can watch right now!

Resistance: Burning Skies is, at its core, a story about an everyday hero becoming a legend. On August 15th, 1951, New York City fireman Tom Riley is called away during a seemingly routine fire call and finds himself thrust into the midst of the brutal Chimeran invasion (Resistance 2 fans: this parallels the period when Nathan Hale returns from Europe).

Riley is possessed with a singular determination to find his wife and child, but along the way he'll be embroiled in a far larger conflict that will determine the fate of New York and leave him a key inspirational hero of the Resistance.





For those of you watching closely, there were a couple other little tidbits revealed...
