118w ago - Today Sony VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has shared a new video which marks the return of Kevin Butler for Project LLP: Long Live Play on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Two years ago we introduced you to our resident Vice President of just about everything, Kevin Butler, in the inaugural "Dear PlayStation" ad which was timed with the introduction of our "It Only Does Everything" campaign.
Since then, the campaign has helped make the PS3 a household name in 50 million homes worldwide. Today, I'm excited to introduce you to a new brand campaign "Long Live Play" - designed to celebrate gamers from all walks of life and recognize you for making us who we are today.
PlayStation has always been about the gamer and the PS3 is the ultimate portal to a land of infinite experiences and accomplishments. PlayStation is reaffirming our commitment to gamers like yourselves with "Long Live Play" - mixing humor and a little good, clean fun with the kind of entertainment content you crave.
What better way to transition than with a visit from Kevin Butler, back from his four-day retirement with a special message.
126w ago - President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert at Q-Games Limited has announced today that the PixelJunk Shooter 2 patch is now live on PSN.
To quote: Hey everyone! I am happy to announce a patch for PixelJunk Shooter 2. We've changed a few things. Read on for the full list:
• There was a bug where some enemies would spawn right on top of you giving you that awesome "insta-death" you really don't want in a game... well, we fixed it!
• The online connectivity has been tuned to allow you to hook up with other players much more easily. Try it out!
• If you get matched against a higher ranking player you get a nice large cash bonus (Q space bucks of course) if you win! This gives you a big incentive to challenge yourself more when you get matched up against someone who seems better than you. Hint: stay calm and use strategy, you can definitely take them!
• We added an option to the pause screen that lets you take a break in the middle of a stage and come back later to finish it off. So when your mom calls you to the dinner table just choose that option, go eat your dinner *and* be nice to the environment by switching off your PS3!
• Even if you kill a few survivors and get a game over screen you can "continue" - your score...
127w ago - SCEA Producer Daimion Pinnock has announced today that the week-long MotorStorm Apocalypse PS3 Multiplayer demo is now live on PSN.
To quote: A storm is coming to PlayStation Network! The MotorStorm Apocalypse multiplayer demo arrives on PlayStation Store in today's Store update and will be available to everyone for one week only.
Here's an overview of what you can expect from the demo of Evolution Studios' latest adrenaline-fuelled action racer, which is out now on the PlayStation Store.
Seven days of intense action racing
Get ready to experience the simultaneous challenge and excitement that comes from trying to win races while a city comes crashing down around you! You've only got from Tuesday, June 28th until Tuesday July 5th to get in on the action, so make the most of the opportunity by taking part in this special week-long demo event while you can.

131w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has announced today that Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is now live on PSN.
To quote: Few game series have as long and storied a history as Wizardry, which is the same age as Mario and helped inspire entire gaming genres.
Much has changed in this series over the years, but the base formula has remained the same: create your avatar, hire some help at the local guild, accept a quest or two, then crawl through a seemingly endless maze of corridors, traps, treasure chests and secret passageways... all in glorious first-person 3D!
But do mind the monsters. Everything from adorable Vorpal Bunnies to giant dragons, to a demonic face made out of corpses is traipsing through these same cavernous depths, always just around the next corner. Once you're spotted, it's time to fight - and if you're not strong, clever or fast enough to take them down, you're going to wind up as a spot on the wall - like all the others.
In the end, it comes down to tweaking your stats, finding or buying new equipment, keeping track of your whereabouts, exploring thoroughly and strategizing like there's no tomorrow. Think Etrian Odyssey, or Dark Spire, or... well... Wizardry!
There are 10 main characters to choose from, consisting...
