Video: Spec Ops: The Line for PS3 Demo from E3 2010 Arrives

100°
197w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a PS3 demo video from E3 2010 showcasing Spec Ops: The Line for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: In 2K Games' upcoming PS3 third-person action game Spec Ops: The Line, catastrophic sandstorms have assaulted Dubai and left the City of Gold's famous gravity-defying skyscrapers entombed under mountains of choking, swirling sand.

I sat in on a demonstration of Spec Ops: The Line at the 2010 E3 Expo, and learned more about the game's improvisational combat and tense atmosphere, as well as the difficult decisions you'll face as a Delta Force squad leader.

The story finds inspiration in the film Apocalypse Now. As Delta Force Captain Martin Walker, your team ventures into the Dubai wastes to track down a distress signal from Colonel John Konrad, who went AWOL following the sandstorms.

The fate of Col. Konrad and his men will be revealed as you play, but if you've seen Apocalypse Now, you might have some clues about the dark territory this tale will explore.

As mentioned before, this is a multiplayer demo, so you'll need either an internet connection to fight along/against other players world-wide (that means around the world!) or four of your bestest local Patapon friends to enjoy this demo... and since it is free, there...

198w ago - Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda has confirmed today that the new Patapon 3 Multiplayer PSP demo will be hitting PSN on July 6, 2010 for free!

To quote: So you say, "What's so special? Patapon 2 also had multiplayer!"

Well let me enlighten you with a few cool single-eyed-facts (to keep it in theme, I'll limit them to three):

• Patapon 3 is a whole new chapter in the Patapon saga
• There are some really cool new characters, including the Superhero Patapon.
• To experience the awesome multiplayer adventures that lay beyond Patapolis, you'll have to go through a strange portal called "the Internet."

That's right. Patapon 3 has entered the interwebz (so to speak), with exciting new adventures that you can play with your friends via a Wi-Fi connection. This demo is but a peephole glimpse into a new world full of larger-than-eye enemies, super stylized eye-watering graphics, and eye-popping excitement.

Should I tell you more? Ok, fine. The Patapon 3 Multiplayer Demo adventure can be downloaded for FREE on Tuesday, July 6th from the PlayStation Store... exclusively for your PSP.

If you are looking extremely confused and asking yourself, "what is a Patapon?", here's a quick recap of the story so far (now I am making...
 

Killzone 3 3D PS3 Demo Tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

199w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has revealed that tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Guerrilla Games' Hermen Hulst will be demoing Killzone 3 in 3D on the PS3 entertainment system!

To quote: Got someplace to be early tomorrow morning? Well blow it off! You'll wanna stay up late tonight to see Killzone 3 in action.

Video Game Week continues on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, as Guerrilla Games' Hermen Hulst will be demoing KZ3 in gorgeous 3D.

Jimmy stunk it up a little bit last night in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit; hopefully he'll have better luck dishing out brutal melee attacks on the Helghast.

If he does well, we can all forgive him for his role in the cinematic catastrophe known as 2004's Taxi. Queen Latifah, you're still on the hook.

David Spade will also be guesting, so stay up or set your DVR for 12:35 am tonight on NBC. You'll be able to play Killzone 3 in February 2011.
