79w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited Content Producer Katy Macdonald has shared a first look of Assassin's Creed III for the PlayStation 3 console from E3 2012 below today.
To quote: Fans of the Ubisoft's blockbuster series have been gagging for a taste of the action since Assassin's Creed III was announced.
This year at E3, the development team were able to take us through a live demonstration, showcasing new weapons, environments and, most importantly, a new assassin.
Connor is a half-British, half-Mohawk assassin living through the American Revolution. The game itself is based over 30 years; before, during and after this period.
This first part of the live demo was set in the wilderness, and was an ideal way to prove that Connor is just as agile, fast and fluid as his predecessors as he balanced in trees, climbed through branches and scaled rock faces with ease.
For the first time, enemy soldiers - in this case, the Red Coats - are not our hero's only threat. In Assassin's Creed III, there will also be wild animals to tackle. We watched with anticipation as Connor was set upon by a pack of ferocious wolves which he swiftly eliminated with a blade.
79w ago - Quantic Dream Product Manager Ross Alexander has unveiled a video trailer first look at Beyond: Two Souls from E3 2012 just moments ago!
Below are the details, to quote: Hopefully many of you will have seen that we've just announced the much anticipated next title from Quantic Dream, the makers of Heavy Rain.
BEYOND: Two Souls is an interactive psychological action thriller starring Oscar nominee Ellen Page (Inception, Juno) in the lead role of Jodie Holmes. Yes, I know, Ellen Page – pretty awesome!

80w ago - Sony's Latin America Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales has officially unveiled a first look at Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 for the PS3 entertainment system today with details included in an interview below!
To quote: A few weeks ago, we traveled to Sao Paulo, Brazil to meet with our fellow PlayStation bloggers in Brazil and to attend the debut of Pro Evolution Soccer 2013.
This was the first time we had an opportunity to play the game, and some members of the development team were there to answer our questions. A few games later, here's what we learned:
This year, the PES team has lots of new people onboard who are sure to inject new life into this soccer simulation game, which already has millions of fans around the world.
In addition to all-new AI that I noticed after just a few games, PES 13 has implemented many new features in direct response to fan feedback, including better control that gives you more freedom, such as manual passing and full manual shooting, giving you more control over your actions.
It is a bit difficult to use at first, but highly rewarding once you master it. In the short time I used this feature, I obviously couldn't master it, and so I had to resort to traditional shooting.....
90w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Associate Product Marketing Manager Derek Osgood has made available a first look video trailer today of the story in Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita handheld console!
To quote: With Resistance: Burning Skies marching steadily towards its May 29th release date on PS Vita, you may have been wondering who Tom Riley is and where his story fits into the grand scheme of the Resistance universe.
Today we're clearing up that question with a new story trailer you can watch right now!
Resistance: Burning Skies is, at its core, a story about an everyday hero becoming a legend. On August 15th, 1951, New York City fireman Tom Riley is called away during a seemingly routine fire call and finds himself thrust into the midst of the brutal Chimeran invasion (Resistance 2 fans: this parallels the period when Nathan Hale returns from Europe).
Riley is possessed with a singular determination to find his wife and child, but along the way he'll be embroiled in a far larger conflict that will determine the fate of New York and leave him a key inspirational hero of the Resistance.
For those of you watching closely, there were a couple other little tidbits revealed...
95w ago - Sony Localization Editor Ben Bateman has shared a first look today at upcoming title Sleeping Dogs for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Recently, we gathered select members of the media and swept them off to Hong Kong for a special preview event. These lucky journalists had been flown half way around the world to see the brand-new game from Square Enix, Sleeping Dogs.
While you'll start to see their previews pop up online shortly, we thought we would give you a glimpse of what's to come by walking you through the action-packed mission "Mrs. Chu's Revenge." This is not for the faint of heart...
Mrs. Chu's Revenge
You play as Wei, an undercover cop trying to infiltrate the Hong Kong triads. In this chapter of Wei's story, you begin in a Chinese restaurant owned by a distraught and saddened Mrs. Chu. She sits in the back of a grimy kitchen, hunched over a table, alone and in the dark. A close relative has been murdered and she wants you to deliver the man responsible.
Your first objective is to track down "Johnny Rat-Face" – the man charged with the killing. With only his cell phone number to go on, this would be a pretty difficult task for most people. Luckily, you've got the resources of the Hong Kong Police Department at your disposal....
