114w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a RetroGrade video walkthrough on PlayStation 3 today with details below.
To quote: We've featured Retro/Grade several times on the PlayStation.Blog over the past couple of years.
And so, we know a lot about it: it's a shooter, controlled with a guitar controller, in reverse. But before Fantastic Fest 2011, I had never seen someone actually play the thing. As a pretty experienced Rock Band-er, I thought I'd be able to jump in and kick some ass, but the reality is, my gaming brain had never been taxed in quite this way.
So we set up a camera for 24 Caret Games' Matt Gilgenbach, clad in a hard hat, to show you how the game actually plays. He actually beats the game in the first 30 seconds, but that's not an accident...
While at Fantastic Fest, Destructoid called it "a blast in the pants." I agree (I think). Retro/Grade will be coming exclusively to PSN in 2012. Hold on to those plastic guitars.
120w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared a video unveil today for the airstrip sequence in Uncharted 3 on PS3 at Gamescom 2011 below.
To quote: If you were one of the hundreds of thousand of fans that tuned into our E3 2011 PlayStation press conference, you may have caught Naughty Dog's Community Strategist Arne Meyer give viewers a full demo of UNCHARTED 3's cruise ship sequence, a tense scenario that married technical prowess and high action as Drake struggled to escape the doomed vessel.
Today, Naughty Dog has returned with another epic reveal. Arne and I discuss the challenges behind keeping UNCHARTED 3 as spoiler-free as possible, and how specific sequences are deliberately designed to reveal new game mechanics, story and characters at specific milestones in the game's development process.
Watch it above, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

138w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has unveiled a video today showcasing the new Sorcerer's Lair Table for ZEN Pinball on PSN.
To quote: Today we are unveiling Sorcerer's Lair, a brand new ZEN Pinball table! It has been awhile since our last blog post, but we hope you have been enjoying Marvel Pinball and keeping your skills sharp on other ZEN Pinball tables.
All eight of our studio pinball teams have been hard at work over the past few months developing new tables.
Set in an ancient Citadel that is controlled by an evil Sorcerer, you play as a brother and sister pair who find themselves caught in the Sorcerer's spells and traps.
It is up to you and your ghost sidekick, Whisper, to take down skeletons, spiders and ghosts as you try to defeat the Sorcerer and restore peace to the Citadel.
This fantasy themed table is full of hidden modes and secret unlocks, so it will take some time to really discover the intricacies of Sorcerer's Lair.
As you have come to expect from every ZEN Pinball table, there is no shortage of interactive 3D objects, multiple modes of play, secret unlocks, online multiplayer competition...
144w ago - Today Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer shared some new PS3 3D video footage on Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and revealed villainess Katherine Marlowe from GDC 2011.
To quote: Evan Wells, Christophe Balestra, Richard Lemarchand and yours truly were to give the demo and speak with the press - the embargo just lifted this morning, so be sure to visit your favorite gaming media outlet for their take on the event and the reveals.
We kicked off the press event with the first-ever demo outside of Naughty Dog halls of UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception in stereoscopic 3D. We chose to present a portion of the burning chateau sequence we premiered in late December.
Since most people would already be familiar with the way the sequence looked and played, we thought it would make all the more evident the stellar work the Naughty Dog team has put into making the 3D presentation part of the core Naughty Dog Engine.
In my opinion, with this small snippet of gameplay we've proven that we're able to perfectly...
