Video: Resistance: Burning Skies - George Washington Bridge

250°
135w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein shared a new video demo of Resistance: Burning Skies for PlayStation Vita today spotlighting play through the George Washington Bridge.

To quote: I can't wait to finally be able to play a proper FPS on the go, and that time will come when Resistance: Burning Skies launches for PlayStation Vita in 2012.

Recently, Rob Huebner of developer Nihilistic talked us through the newly-revealed George Washington Bridge area of RBS.

Since this is Day 1 of the Chimeran invasion, don't expect a leisurely jaunt across the Hudson River; the bridge is lousy with Chimeran Scouts, armed with infrared beam-enabled sniper rifles.

In this video, Huebner narrates as producer Frank Simon drags and drops grenades right where he wants them.

Also, take note of touch-screen melee controls, the first person cover system, the touch-activated weapon wheel, and the Sixeye sniper rifle's alt-fire mode.

135w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has announced today alongside some new [Register or Login to view links] that the Starhawk Private PS3 Beta is slated to close on January 3, 2012.

To quote: As of Tuesday, January 3rd, the lights will go down on the Starhawk Private Beta.

It's been a wild, wild ride and we want to thank ALL the participants that took time out of their schedule to help us test Starhawk. We've learned an enormous amount and have applied much of it already.

We've still got a long way to go but the leg up this info has provided us is incredibly valuable. The Private Beta was our first step to try out the game in the wild and it's been simply awesome.

And because of this success, we've decided to keep the Private Beta live through the holiday break. After all, what would ringing in 2012 be without a little Starhawk beatdown session?!!

So what's next? Why, the Public Beta, of course! In the next few weeks we'll be announcing the dates for this important step.

Many more players will be allowed access, including the UNCHARTED 3 owners who received a Public Beta voucher when they purchased the game! Look for more information and specifics very soon.

To quote: With only two days until Santa drops gaming goodies down your chimney, what better way to relax, rewind and review the year gone by with a special festive edition of Access TV?

Episode 14 is on YouTube right now, and reveals the winner (and four runners up) of the Access Game of the Year - as voted for by you.

There's also highlights from 2011′s Access Live tour, including footage from events at Manchester, Birmingham and London, plus that very special Uncharted treasure hunt in the deserts of Jordan.

In fact this episode is bursting with so much Christmas, it's got a mountain's worth of snow in it - which extreme sports lunatic Travis Rice proceeds to jump off with nothing more than a plastic board between him and certain death. Be sure to check out the footage from the SSX star's film 'The Art of Flight' for no other reason than it will blow your mind.





Still not festive enough for you? How about a roundup of all the best Christmas deals on the PlayStation Store,...
 

Video: FIFA on PS Vita - Learn Soccer's New PlayStation Controls

200°
135w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today demonstrating the new PlayStation controls in FIFA Soccer for the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: EA's first foray onto the PlayStation Vita is a strong one, as the EA Sports team in Vancouver isn't just miniaturising the PS3 experience into a portable size, but refining the controls to take advantage of the new hardware. In this hands-on video, producer Matt Prior demonstrates what he calls "the most controllable version of FIFA ever."

As is quickly becoming standard practice when console franchises debut on the Vita, these touchscreen controls are optional. Yet I think longtime video footballers will find themselves using at least some of these new tricks pretty quickly, as they feel right at home.





I spent some time with this demo version of FIFA after the event, and I found myself toying around with the playable menu screen for a long time, just taking shot after shot on goal.

The accuracy of the rear touch shooting has won me over, and I look forward to hearing your impressions of it once it debuts in just a few short months.
