Tales of Xillia Coming to PS3, Namco Bandai Answers Your Questions

300°
105w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has confirmed today that Tales of Xillia is coming to PS3, and has interviewed Hideo Baba of Namco Bandai who addresses many questions on the PlayStation 3 title below.

To quote: This PS3-exclusive RPG is a celebration of sorts for the Tales series of RPGs, which had been around for 15 years at the time of the game's release in Japan.

But rather than just rehash classic elements, the Tales team took some chances, crafting a new battle system and a more grown-up visual style. The result, according to [Register or Login to view links], is the best Tales game yet.

Last week, I had a chance to pose some questions (including some of your Twitter queries) to Tales series producer Hideo Baba. Here are his answers:

Jeff Rubenstein, PlayStation Blog: Tales of Graces f came to PS3, but Vesperia didn't hit PS3 in North America. Now Tales of Xillia has been announced for North America. How do you determine which titles in the series get a an English-language conversion?

Hideo Baba, NAMCO BANDAI Studios Inc.: Given the current resources assigned to the Tales of series team, I am always trying to find ways to assign staff members to work on a Western localized...
 

Video: Sound Shapes Gets Its Beck On with New Tracks via PSN

105w ago - Today Mathew Kumar of the Sound Shapes Team has announced that Sound Shapes is getting its Beck on with new tracks via PSN!

To quote: There's just under three weeks until the release of Sound Shapes on PS Vita and PS3 on August 7th, and it's time we sat down and had a serious chat with you.

You see, we've been keeping a secret from you. Yes, here in Queasy Towers, our glittering skyscraper in downtown Toronto, so beloved by the city that they're building us a moat (they claim they're upgrading streetcar lines, but we know what they're really doing), we have been hiding someone from you.

Although to this point we've revealed stars that shine as brightly as [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links], and [Register or Login to view links], it wasn't until Wednesday that we were able to sneak out the news that Grammy Award-winning musician [Register or Login to view links]- mastermind behind Mellow Gold, Odelay and most recently 2008′s Modern Guilt- has been working with us on three brand new tracks for the game.

Beck's more than just familiar with the world of video games. In fact, with his 2005 album Guero he actually snuck out a wee EP, Hell Yes, which remixed tracks from that album...
 

The Full Monty on Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault

50°
106w ago - Following up on yesterday's update, Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman is back with the full monty on Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault today!

To quote: Though fundamentally a third-person shooter, the Ratchet & Clank series has rarely shied from bold genre experimentation: witness the progressive competitive and co-op modes of Ratchet: Deadlocked, the brain-busting temporal puzzles of A Crack in Time, even the four-player feuding of last year's All 4 One.

But with Full Frontal Assault, the storied series will undergo what is perhaps its most sweeping metamorphosis yet, creating what developer Insomniac Games is calling "action tower defense." Yep, Ratchet's going all PixelJunk Monsters on us.

This is a logical, some might say inevitable, evolution when you consider the series' gameplay trajectory, which despite its myriad twists and turns has focused squarely on two core elements: ludicrously powerful weaponry and freakish alien foes.

In other words, the raw ingredients for a mean tower defense game. "One of the things we wanted to explore with Full Frontal Assault was large, sprawling battlefields," Production Director Shaun McCabe told...
