132w ago - Today Klei Co-Founder Jamie Cheng has announced that Shank 2 will be coming to PSN complete with sharper graphics and new co-op functionality.

To quote: I'm here to talk a bit about our newest PSN title – Shank 2! Honestly, it's been a fantastic journey. We bet everything on the first game, and the fans both supported us and gave us meaningful feedback on the game.

The encouragement has not only allowed us to survive and thrive, but gave us a huge reason to take a look at the game and make big improvements. I'm here to talk a bit about what we've been working on.

Let's start with the art. As you may know, our entire art team consists of professional animators and painters from the 2D animation industry, and again Jeff Agala directed the visuals. The goal here was to blow away our previous fidelity and set a new bar for ourselves.

To do that, we doubled the resolution of all the source character art to push the graphic novel style, adding a huge amount of extra detail to the environment and even doubling the amount of animation in the game.





We've also worked hard on making environments are far more interactive – collapsing ceilings, crumbling floors, fiery environments, barrels and other large objects that...
 

Video: HandCircus Introduces the Heroes in PSN Exclusive Okabu

132w ago - Today HandCircus Founder Simon Oliver has introduced the heroes in the upcoming PSN exclusive game Okabu as part of the video trailer below.

To quote: Its been a couple of months since we were last here talking about OKABU, our upcoming PSN-exclusive action-adventure, and we're thrilled to be part of this month's "Only On PSN" program, sitting alongside such awesome titles as Pixeljunk Sidescroller, Eufloria and Rochard.

So the big news is that we finally have a release date! OKABU will be hitting PSN on October 18th, and there'll be a demo available on launch day that'll let you take our cloud-flying heroes for a test flight. With launch only a couple of weeks away, we wanted to share a few more details about the game, and what you'll be doing as you guide Kumulo and Nimbe through the four worlds that make up the story campaign.

Since we started development one of our biggest goals has been to pack a ton of gameplay variety in the game, from physics-play and drivable vehicles to the ability to control the creatures that fill the world. These powers come from the cloud-flying heroes in the game, which you can pick up and drop off to swap abilities on the fly.

With our previous trailers we've been keen to show off everything that you can do in the game, but I realize that...
 

Video: PS1 Backups on PS3 via JFW DH CFW, OpenPStore Update

1500°
132w ago - Today Spanish PS3 developer DemonHades has posted up a video demonstrating PS1 Game Backups loading from CD and from PS3 USB / HDD via a Plugin on PS3 Custom Firmware using the upcoming JFW DH CFW alongside an OpenPStore update below.

To quote, roughly translated: Who says 3.55 is needed to load ps1 backups?

In this video we just want to show that in JFW DH can also use the method with Multimedia from backup ps1 cd (not recommended) and a plugin we load it via usb or hdd.

The video looks bad, but nothing for the quality of recording of the phone and the cabin where they recorded, but ultimately what you want to show is that it is necessary to be in a 3.55 for using such method, as it used in the 3.41.

1saludo and those who criticize that the video is blurry and FUD, if you want to look better give you the account number and we buy a better camera (from 100 thousand mega pixels) and you get caught, but digital video editing and remaster, for all other thanks again.

We advance the OpenPStore, and it is becoming less

How about demons, and the wait is being boring ... but I will not tell me that I am the one to respond and come forward
 

Video: Sega Confirms Yakuza: Dead Souls PS3 Heading to the US

132w ago - Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber has confirmed today alongside a video trailer that Yakuza: Dead Souls on PS3 is heading to the US.

To quote: Greetings Sony fans and Yakuza enthusiasts! Today is an exciting day, both for PS3 gamers and for us here at SEGA - the PS3 exclusive, Yakuza: Dead Souls is coming to the west!

It seems like only yesterday we were all sitting on the edge of our Sony-branded seats, hoping desperately that Yakuza 3 would see the light of day overseas. In the years since, we've seen not only the US release of Yakuza 3, but Yakuza 4, too - and, thanks to the fantastic support of fans and PS3 gamers like you, we're proud to now announce the latest chapter in the Yakuza franchise. What was once Of The End is now Dead Souls!

So, what is Yakuza: Dead Souls all about? I traveled to the top of the mountains and spent two weeks meditating to bring you the answers. In the end, that failed, so I just played the entire game instead.





It was awesome, and in doing so, I found that this game is a mix of:

• Zombies in Tokyo
• Yakuza with guns
• Beautiful Hostesses

And while I'm not able to reveal how much content from the Japanese version is coming over,...

50°
132w ago - Sony VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has shared a video below in celebration of PlayStation Nation's Long Live Play with fans today.

To quote: Hello PlayStation Nation, Early last month, with some ambiguity, we announced that we were looking for a few good gamers to assist us with a special assignment related to our freshly launched Long Live Play campaign.

Long Live Play honors gamers from all walks of life and recognizes you for making PlayStation who we are today.

We asked members of the PlayStation Nation to email us with pictures of themselves holding their PS3 controller and in 30 words-or-less, describe how they epitomize the ultimate PlayStation gamer. I know that PlayStation gamers are some of the most impassioned fans in the world, but I was blown away by the thousands of responses that flooded my email.

After weeks of anticipation, I can finally reveal the complete ambition behind Long Live Play. I'm delighted to announce that we've painstakingly reviewed each submission and selected a dozen or so die-hard gamers to represent the PlayStation Nation in a brand new Long Live Play campaign that will air on national TV starting October 5th....
