You know, the VGAs where you're going to see the debut of the new Resistance 3 trailer (I haven't even seen it yet), where God of War III will be contending for Game of the Year, and where who knows what other awesome things will happen? Those VGAs?
Well, like last year, we're holding a VGAs viewing party in LA, and you're invited [pointing at you]. We think fun experiences are best shared with friends - friends who are picking up the tab.
So we've teamed up with Capcom to transition their Food Fight into a viewing party for the VGAs broadcast. So please, drop...

To quote: Hopefully you had a chance to check out the teaser for our new trailer which will premier exclusively this Saturday during the Spike Video Game Awards (check your local listings for time and network if you're outside the US).
And, we look forward to sharing more with you about the trailer after the VGAs this weekend. But even prior to the VGAs, a lot of new info has hit since GamesCom via a couple magazine covers that you may have seen - but if you missed it, we're here to catch you up.
First of all, the main protagonist in Resistance 3 is Joseph Capelli, the Sentinel who (HUGE RESISTANCE 2 SPOILERS HERE... if you haven't played it yet, go buy a Greatest Hits copy now!) was forced to kill Nathan Hale at the end of R2.

We believe that we can use our research to bring new experiences to games, which is why we set up the company.
What are the biggest challenges in producing a camera-based game like Kung Fu Live?

To quote: Since the launch of the PlayStation Rewards beta, members have been benefiting from doing the things they love to do on PlayStation and progressing towards Select, Pro and Legendary.
You may have even seen some of the members that have already reached a rewards tier showing off their status in the PlayStation.com forums or online via their exclusive PSN avatars.
When we announced the PlayStation Rewards program, we promised that it would continually be evolving.
