Video: Foosball 2012: Single-player and Multiplayer Options Demo

50°
122w ago - Today Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has shared the third installment in the Foosball 2012 developer series, this time spotlighting single-player and multiplayer options in a video demo for PS3 and PS Vita fans below.

To quote: Over the past couple of weeks we've taken you through the controls and cross-platform features, so this time we're going to dive into the multiplayer and single-player modes.

Real-world table football is the most fun when you play it with friends, and that's something we definitely took into account when developing Foosball 2012.

Up to four players can play locally at the same time, whether that's two for each team or other combinations like 1 vs. 1 or 2 vs. AI or 2 vs. 1 and so forth. It's also possible for some of the players to play with PlayStation Move and others with DualShock 3.

Online multiplayer is also present, of course. You can play alone, or join up with a friend locally and take on the world together. Every victory nets you experience points and boosts your global ranking, so be sure to check the leaderboards to see whether your friends are above or below you.





If you do prefer single player, the game's World Tour mode lets you face off against 29 A.I....
 

Video: Foosball 2012 PS3 to PS Vita Cross-platform Play Demo

100°
123w ago - Following up on their previous developer diary, today Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has shared a new video spotlighting PS3-to-PS Vita Cross-platform play in upcoming title Foosball 2012.

To quote: I'm back to share more details about Foosball 2012! Specifically, to introduce the cross-platform functionalities between PS3 and PS Vita.

We didn't want to have a game that has a version for PS3 and a separate version for PS Vita. We wanted an experience where you don't need to worry about which device you are currently using, because you get exactly the same game - including your current progress, unlocks, and DLC - every time you play, regardless of whether you are currently on PS3 or PS Vita.

First of all, when you buy Foosball 2012, you'll get it for both the PS3 and PS Vita for a price of a single PSN game. The same applies for additional content that you will be able to buy. Purchase the game once and you can use it on both the PS3 and PS Vita.

Secondly, when you play the game, your saves are automatically uploaded to a cloud storage within PSN and synchronized between PS3 and PS Vita. Whenever you start the game, the progress you made on any platform,...

132w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a behind the scenes video today spotlighting the making of Kara: behind the scenes of Quantic Dream's PS3 tech demo below.

To quote: The creators of Heavy Rain didn't come empty handed to this year's Game Developers Conference. The celebrated studio debuted a powerful new "[Register or Login to view links]" called Kara to show off their new animation and performance-capture technology.

If you've seen Kara, then you know that the results speak for themselves.

Rendered in real time on PS3 hardware, Kara chronicled the activation of a self-aware synthetic organism, but this making-of feature is impressive in its own right as it shows how [Register or Login to view links] assembled several different performances to create a seamless, believable virtual character. The future is now, you guys.





Once you've watched the video feature, let us know what you think in the comments! And as a reminder: Kara is absolutely, positively not Quantic Dream's next game.

250°
138w ago - Sony Manager James Gallagher has made available a video today which dives inside PlayStation Vita, demonstrating PS Vita cross play with the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: One of the standout aspects of PlayStation Vita is the way it interacts with your PS3, whether that's PS Vita and PS3 players competing on the same track in WipEout 2048, or starting a game of MotorStorm RC at home and then picking up where you left off on the bus to work.
