100w ago - Gearbox Producer Matt Charles has answered some PS3 fan questions on the upcoming Borderlands 2 video game for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: We at Gearbox were delighted to see the enthusiastic response to our recent Borderlands 2 posts. But that wasn't enough.

You see, Borderlands 2 is all about MORE. More weapons, more enemies, more story, more environments, and most of all MORE LOOT.

A commenter on one of the previous posts said, "You'll get my pre-order as soon as the collector's / limited editions are revealed in full."

Well, "Baron_Von_Bonbon," that day has arrived as we've recently announced our Borderlands 2 Deluxe Vault Hunter's Collector's Edition and Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition.

However, you also had more questions, and we have the answers! Character customisation options, voice chat, Mechromancer, a unique reward for Borderlands 1 players - I've done my best to answer as many of your questions about Borderlands 2 as possible. Read on...

Can we expect better more consistent framerate this time around?...
 

Video: Foosball 2012 Dev Diary: PlayStation Move Motion Controls

200°
100w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has made available some video footage today of Foosball 2012 as part of their developer diary series which spotlights the PlayStation Move motion controls below.

To quote: In March, we announced our upcoming PS3 and PS Vita game Foosball 2012.

And now we've returned to showcase a series of short developer diaries where we introduce you to some of the game's coolest features, like PlayStation Move support, full cross-platform compatibility between PS3 and PS Vita and also the online multiplayer mode.

Our first video demonstrates Foosball 2012 and PlayStation Move motion controllers in action, showing that you can play this game exactly the way you are used from a real table football ("foosball") game.

Thanks to the precision and zero lag of PlayStation Move, even the slightest movements of your hands can be properly translated into the game, allowing you to precisely control the shot power, positions of your foosmen, and so on.

One or two PS Move controllers can be used by one player, or you can ignore motion controls and play with the time-tested DualShock 3 controller, where the left stick controls the poles and movements of the ball and the right stick is used to shoot, allowing you to accurately aim and control the shot power.
 

PS Vita and Carmelita Revealed for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

100w ago - Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan has revealed news of a PS Vita port and Carmelita gameplay today for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time with details below.

To quote: We recently joined Spike's Geoff Keighley on the latest episode of GTTV tonight to show off some cool new Carmelita gameplay in addition to a very special announcement: Sly Cooper is coming to PS Vita this fall!

First off, a look at new gameplay. As every Sly fan knows, Sly Cooper and Carmelita Fox have a long and torrid history - a history that's destined to continue in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

The game picks up where Sly 3 left off, and Sly is feigning amnesia so he can be with the love of his life, Carmelita. But when he rejoins the Cooper Gang on their time-traveling escapade to restore his family's legacy, you can be sure Carmelita will quickly become embroiled in their wild adventure.

Carmelita is radiant on the PS3, and the powerful graphics hardware allowed us to make her much more detailed and expressive than in the past titles on PS2. She is, of course, a fully playable character in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and so we also spent a lot of time evolving her gameplay.
