120w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a video interview today discussing how the upcoming WipEout 2048 game brings fans the birth of anti-gravity racing to PS Vita.
To quote: The WipEout series is synonymous with PlayStation hardware launches and so there's a warm feeling of familiarity to knowing that WipEout 2048 is coming to PlayStation Vita during the launch window.
The game focuses on the birth of Anti-grav racing and the Liverpool Studio team is keen to focus on how the architecture of the futuristic city shapes both look and gameplay. I caught up with Graeme Ankers and Stuart Tilley out in the sunshine between presentations.
It's fantastic to see a new WipEout game on its way, particularly one that is looking to take the series in a new direction. We already know that it will support cross platform play allowing Vita and PS3 players to go head-to-head online and I've just learned that the soundtrack - a vital ingredient in the WipEout DNA - features new remixes of Underworld and Leftfield tracks from the original game, as well as a new track from Deadmau5. Can't wait!
120w ago - Insomniac Games Community Intern Brandon Winfrey shared a Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One PS3 update today complete with a new trailer video from Gamescom 2011.
To quote: Fun fact of the day: Trailers used to be shown at the end of a movie. Hence the name trailer. Because it trailed the mov- you know what, you probably got it.
Eventually, the marketing people woke up and realized that no one sticks around after a film, so they moved it to the beginning.
However, the name "trailer" stuck. Probably because the name "beginnier" is lamer than my 17th birthday (it involved a gluten-free cake and a Pauly Shore marathon - you do the math).
Nowadays, marketing people have gotten even savvier. You can watch a trailer - on the internet! Now you don't have to drain your 401k watching Jason Statham punch various objects and/or people just to get a glimpse at the trailer for whatever beacon of enjoyable entertainment that's on the horizon.
For instance, just by pressing that little triangle directly north of this text - you can see a new trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. In it, you'll get a taste of all the mischievous co-op action that awaits you in our latest entry in this esteemed franchise. You can play nice...
120w ago - Bend Studios Creative Director John Garvin has made available a video trailer today spotlighting Uncharted: Golden Abyss for PS Vita which introduces Marisa Chase.
To quote: We've just released a trailer that introduces a new and important character from our story. You met Jason Dante in our E3 demo and learned a little bit about him: that he and Drake have known each other a long time, that they each know Sully, that Drake taught Dante a lot about treasure hunting, that Dante can be a little, well, greedy.
This time we're introducing Marisa Chase. But as she tells Drake at one point, call her "Chase," only her grandfather calls her "Marisa."
I don't want to give too much away at this point, but I can say this: once again Nathan Drake finds himself on a quest to solve a historical mystery which he hopes will lead to a fantastic treasure. The trick is staying alive long enough to get there. No easy task. And when Drake gets between Dante and Chase, events quickly spiral out of control.
We were lucky to get some really great talent to play our key characters. Nolan North, of course, reprises his role of Nathan Drake. Nolan...
