119w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared some fresh Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception PS3 gameplay alongside an interview today.
To quote: In case you haven't seen my video interviews with Insomniac Games and thatgamecompany, I was at the PlayStation Experience press event in London last week, talking about the most anticipated PlayStation games of 2011.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will be right at the top of that list for many fans and I got the chance to sit with Arne Meyer, Community Strategist at Naughty Dog.
After half an hour of idle chatter about ice hockey and London's historic markets, we got on to the game and discussed what Naughty Dog is doing to ensure Drake's third adventure is the most immersive yet.
To kick things off, which Uncharted 3 level are you showing here today?
We're showing an extended version of a stage called The Chateau - you may have seen footage of it in the Internet, but what we have here today shows off some of the technical things we've been working on, new character interactions and a few gameplay mechanics that people haven't seen before.

To quote from Engadget: Sony Ericsson has finally stopped teasing, winking, and nodding knowingly and has just come clean - the Xperia Play is most definitely real and it'll be one of the first devices announced at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
We're treated to a date and time, February 13th at 6PM GMT, a pair of full frontal shots of the Gingerbread-running, gamepad-wearing smartphone, and the full version of that creepy ad we saw for it a couple of days back.

119w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a Q&A session and video featuring Dark Souls PS3 dubbed Variety is the Spice of Death today.
To quote: Fans of 2009's PS3-exclusive RPG Demon's Souls are sure to have questions about Dark Souls, which is being produced under the watchful eye of Demon's Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki.
Though the game was formally revealed just days ago, I had a rare opportunity to speak directly with Miyazaki about his plans for Dark Souls. We discussed the game's soul-crushing difficulty (it's going to get harder, not easier), his favorite new feature (a new form of "emotional communication" via Beacon Fires), and the games he's most excited to play in 2011 (hint: UNCHARTED 3).
Sid Shuman: Would you describe Dark Souls as a sequel to Demon's Souls, or a spiritual successor? Does Dark Souls reside in the same universe as Demon's Souls?
Hidetaka Miyazaki, director, Dark Souls: Dark Souls is not a sequel to Demon's Souls by any means. However, it's created by the same producers and director and so the ideologies, concepts, and themes have carried over and are similar. It's a totally new game...
