DICE Details Battlefield 3 Co-Op Mode for PlayStation 3 Gamers

50°
137w ago - Today DICE Junior Product Manager Tommy Rydling has shared details on the Co-Op Mode in Battlefield 3 for PlayStation 3 gamers.

To quote: "Snake-66 is mission go!"

Having just come back from a great Gamescom show in Germany, here's your chance to learn all about the co-op campaign in Battlefield 3 that we showed off on PS3.

We designed co-op to be the perfect blend between the strong narrative from single player and the open-ended action from multiplayer. We are fusing the replayability of multiplayer with a pick up-and-play mentality to create a totally new flavor of Battlefield.

Co-op follows the same philosophy as our award-winning multiplayer game mechanics. Teamwork is practically never forced upon you, but working together will make things much easier and - more importantly - lead to victory.

For the most part, the missions in the co-op campaign are asymmetric. This means that one mission can have you piloting a helicopter while your friend is the gunner, for example. Other situations have one player disarming a bomb and the other one defending him.

Or (as you could see in our press conference playthrough at Gamescom) you can do tandem kills to avoid detection. There are also other mechanics requiring teamwork, such as spotting enemies to...
 

Sony Details Combat Wings on PS3 with PlayStation Move Support

138w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared details on the upcoming PS3 title Combat Wings- complete with PlayStation Move support below!

To quote: Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII lands on PS3 this November with aerial combat campaigns set amidst the bloodiest air battles of World War II.

Not long ago, I tried out a pre-release version of the game under the watchful eye of Creative Director Jakub Majewski, focusing on the game's use of the PlayStation Move motion controller.

Before I grabbed the stick for a test flight, I was curious what made Majewski want to support PlayStation Move in the first place – WWII air combat isn't exactly a genre that leaps into my mind when I ponder the potential of motion-controlled gaming.

"Move makes this game better," Majewski said with conviction. "It's a much more natural form of steering than using an analog stick and it makes a huge difference to the gameplay.

Playing a flying game with a controller can be clunky; you have to make a lot of fine movements in order to change direction and aim. PlayStation Move is great - you just point where you want to go." Based on just 30 minutes of play time, I'd have to agree.

Move proves...

141w ago - Eat Sleep Play Co-Founder David Jaffe has shared a release update today for Twisted Metal PS3 fans, as follows:

David Jaffe here with some good news and bad news on behalf of myself, my Eat Sleep Play partner and Twisted Metal co-director Scott Campbell, the entire Eat Sleep Play team, and Sony Santa Monica.

First the good news: Eat Sleep Play and Sony Santa Monica are cranking like mad to get a fantastic Twisted Metal build ready for both Gamescom and PAX Prime! For those not in the know:

Gamescom is August 17th-21st in Cologne, Germany and PAX Prime will take place here in America August 26th-28th in Seattle, Washington.

Both shows are open to the public but PAX - I believe- is already sold out. If you've got PAX Prime tickets, I can't wait to see you there! I hope you'll swing by the Twisted Metal booth and give our game a try!

At Gamescom and PAX we'll be showing off a brand new level called Thrills & Spills Amusement Park! It's one of our favorite all time Twisted Metal levels and it's filled with the over the top destruction, strategic level choices, and twisted humor that fans of the series have come to love and expect.

Players at both shows will also get hands on with TEAM HUNTED, a brand...
 

EVO 2K: Tekken Hybrid, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue Details

142w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an EVO 2K update today, with details on both Tekken Hybrid and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue as follows:

I spent the weekend at the EVO Championship Series, a mecca for fighting-game competitors and home to the biggest Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Tekken 6, Mortal Kombat tournaments in the world.

This year, I'm told, EVO attendance spiked sharply to nearly 8,000 attendees – enough to strain the confines of the biggest ballroom in one of Las Vegas's larger resort hotels.

With EVO's popularity soaring in recent years, it's become common to see legendary figures in fighting game design prowling the demo stations, studying player reactions and answering questions.

At EVO I caught up with Katsuhiro Harada, the outgoing game director for Tekken since its inception on the PSone. I particularly wanted to discuss this November's PS3-exclusive Tekken Hybrid, the upcoming Blu-ray compilation that will include CG film Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D, an enhanced version of the seminal PS2 fighter Tekken Tag Tournament, and an appetizer in the form of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue.
