126w ago - Sony Creative Director Brian Upton at Santa Monica Studio has shared a new video trailer and the Final US box art for Sorcery on the PlayStation 3 today!

To quote: Now that we're a month out from the May 22nd launch of Sorcery, I'm pleased to show off our final box art, along a brand new trailer that dives in the story behind this much anticipated PlayStation Move title.

Some elements of the story were remarkably consistent throughout development process, while some have changed quite dramatically. The two main characters - Finn, the sorcerer's apprentice, and Erline, his magical cat - were there almost from the beginning.

We always knew they were on a quest to reach the Slumbering Palace at the heart of the Faerie Realm. However, WHY they were on this quest, and WHO was trying to stop them kept shifting. Here's a look...

A lot of the details of the story grew organically out of gameplay. The team would have a cool idea for an enemy or a puzzle or an encounter and I'd weave the rest of the narrative around it.

126w ago - SEGA Digital Campaigns Manager Mike Kebby has shared a video today of Sonic 4 Episode II, which brings Metal Sonic to PSN on May 16, 2012.

To quote: We're extremely pleased to be able to announce that Metal Sonic is making a return to the Sonic universe. 

Not only is Metal Sonic returning to wreak havoc in the boss battles of Sonic 4 Episode II, but he's making a star appearance in exclusive content for owners of both Episodes I and II! In other words, now you can play as Metal Sonic.

In the same way as Mega Drive owners who owned Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles got additional content if they 'locked on' one cart onto the other, so too do gamers who own both Episode I and Episode II. 

Simply put, gamers who own both Episodes get exclusive access to Episode Metal as part of Episode II.  This is an exclusive zone telling the story of what Metal Sonic was up to during the first episode, following his mysterious revival. 

Set in the world of Episode I, you can play stages that have been rearranged for Metal Sonic.
