The Nintendo Wii U will launch in the US on November 18, 2012 for $299.99 for the basic 8GB version and $349.99 for the deluxe 32GB version that comes complete with extra accessories and the Nintendo Land video game.

122w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has shared details today on PSN title The Walking Dead as part of a 9-minute interview with Robert Kirkman.

Below are the details, to quote: Like many of you, I'm eagerly awaiting news on the release date of the third episode of Telltale Games' superb PSN series The Walking Dead, a game that is intimately connected to the grim world of Robert Kirkman's celebrated comic series.

I've long wondered just how involved Kirkman was with Telltale's hit game series, so when I got a chance to interview him during Gamescom in Germany last week, I dropped by bratwurst and Kolsch and picked up the phone.

I first met Kirkman during an [Register or Login to view links] for the late, great GamePro and, as always, the man is nothing if not humble about his considerable creative achievements.

He modestly described The Walking Dead's surge into mainstream pop culture as "a wild ride," and expressed great satisfaction with Telltale's work on the game.

My chat with Kirkman was short (he's a busy man!) but it yielded some fascinating insights into the creative processes behind one of the biggest properties in comics, TV, and gaming.

123w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared details today from Gamescom 2012 on the monsters and magic of Soul Sacrifice for the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: It's been a while since our last Soul Sacrifice blog post, so with Gamescom taking place this week I thought I'd take a moment to share some new game details.

In the world of Soul Sacrifice, monsters are what have become of humans who succumbed to darkness, using magic according to their desire. The mission of a sorcerer is to exterminate these monsters.

Now, you may be wondering what sort of monsters you will come across and how they succumbed to this fate. Let's take a look at the back story of one of these monsters - "Griffon."

Griffon

He was a noble. His lands were vast, and he lived in opulence, supported by heavy taxes exacted from those who lived in his dominion. One day, he was presented with an offering from the people - a golden statue of a figure combining beast, bird, and man.

His heart was swept away by the figure, and he felt an unnatural adoration for it. The power of the...
