Sony Announces Minecraft Hits PS3 December 17th in North America

50°
49w ago - Mojang's Owen HIll announced today via Sony's blog that Minecraft hits PS3 on December 17th, 2013 in North America.

To quote: Season's greetings! Owen from Mojang here. I have some exciting news that you might be interested in. It's about Minecraft - a game that's sold over 30 million copies to date. Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks.

At first, you'll probably build simple structures to protect against nocturnal monsters. Later on, you might work with your friends to create wonderful, imaginative things.

It can also be about adventuring or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. It's pretty. Brave players battle terrible things in The Nether, which is more scary that pretty. You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition will be available to download from PSN on December 17th in North America.

Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition and Minecraft: PS Vita Edition are also being developed, but we don't have release dates yet. Expect them sometime next year.

I've received a few questions concerning the PS3 edition over the past few months, so let's clear them up before I get thrown off the blog...

Q: Does Minecraft: PS3 Edition feature everything from...

54w ago - Sony President & CEO Jack Tretton cordially announced today that the PS4 videogaming and entertainment system is now available in North America alongside a PS4 Launch Games List below!

To quote: Today is a historic day for PlayStation - and gamers everywhere - as we usher in a new era of gaming with the North American launch of PlayStation 4.

We have poured an incredible amount of power and innovation into PS4 to bring you the most immersive, jaw-dropping gaming and entertainment experiences imaginable. Now you get to see for yourself why PlayStation is the best place to play.

This past week we celebrated the launch of PS4 with bi-coastal events taking place in New York City and San Francisco. I can't imagine a better way to introduce a new platform into the growing world of PlayStation than being in two of the biggest cities in the U.S. and live streaming all of the action to you.

Since we introduced PlayStation 4 earlier this year, feedback from the gaming community has been phenomenal. With media reviews saying that the PS4 is "just shy of perfection" and that it is "an impressive package for gamers," it's clear that PS4′s horsepower, deep social capabilities, network features, and amazing gameplay have struck a chord.

With 23 launch titles, including...

(Please note that you must be online for the Double XP bonus to count.) Next Tuesday, September 17th, the offer goes away and users who purchase on PSN will only get the game. If you're keen to go digital, take advantage before it's too late!

It's been a fantastic voyage for us, and we're immensely proud of what we've been able to create - the true Killzone FPS experience on a handheld.

A twin-stick shooter on a HD screen in the palm of your hands, with substantial replayability built in and, if I do say so myself, an addictive multiplayer game integral to the whole experience.





The multiplayer game has been through a few stages of Betas over the last couple of months, and we are immensely grateful to all everyone who took part - especially those who took the time to provide...

Sony Announces Open Me! for PS Vita is Coming to North America

100°
88w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi announced today that Open Me for PS Vita is coming to North America!

Below are the details, as follows: The creative minds in PlayStation C.A.M.P! have created an entirely original puzzle game exclusively for PS Vita, and it's created a strong buzz since its debut at Tokyo Game Show last Fall.

Today, we're announcing that OPEN ME! an addictive augmented reality puzzle game for PS Vita, is coming to North America later this year.

The goal in OPEN ME! is simple - open the box and collect the items inside. This may sound easy, but these boxes are full of traps; players will need to use Vita's augmented reality features to look closely at the boxes from every direction, looking for the slightest hint on how to open them.

By using PS Vita's cameras and smart augmented reality technology, the elusive box will appear on the screen in seconds. Touch the screen to open the box, but be careful, the lids of some boxes are razor sharp and they will shut tight if you fail.

Boxes range from a simple wooden box to a more sophisticated box made of metal, each with its own unique tricks to opening the box. Examples of challenges include stacking colorful boxes from the inside of a larger box, or exploring and disarming a box's security...
