133w ago - Today Game Director Nate Fox at Sucker Punch Productions has posted up a new inFamous 2 video dubbed The Beast is Coming to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Here at Sucker Punch we're tired. We're whipped. Game development is a sprint. You run as hard as you can, then keep running.
The problem is the goal line sometimes move mid-race. When you set out to make a game you sort of have an idea of what it'll ultimately be... but that's not what it ends up being. You only know what you've made once it's done. Like you guys we experience the game, the real game, for the first time at the end of the road. And it's exciting.
It's crazy to be playing the game and forget that you made it because you're busy ducking an RPG rocket. You know that feeling you get when you actually dodge in your seat? Get that all the time.
Cole and his friends have stopped being polygons and actors and have become real people. And it's this reality that makes today's post cool. Now that we're so, so close to being done we can finally really talk about the "Big Bad" that pushes the whole story forward.
What's the Beast, you ask? Like a meteor from outer space...
137w ago - Today Ghostlight Community Manager Ross Brierley has made available a video spotlighting Persona 3 Portable, which is coming to PSP consoles in Europe on April 29, 2011.
To quote: I am very excited to announce the upcoming release of Persona 3 Portable, the excellent PSP version of the critically acclaimed and award winning JRPG.
From the opening cut scene, Persona 3 Portable draws you into its unsettling world allowing you to explore the deep contrast between your character's everyday school life and the mysterious Dark Hour, a time hidden between one day and the next where terrible creatures lurk.
As a member of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad, you have the ability to cross over to the Dark Hour where you can wield a special innate power - your Persona. When the Dark Hour comes, reality crumbles away.
Your school mutates into a sinister and perilous tower known as Tartarus and the people around you transmogrify into coffins whilst the evil Shadow creatures prey on those who wander unsuspectingly into their realm. Using the powers of your Persona, it is your sole aim to root out the cause of the Dark Hour and protect all humanity from certain doom.

To quote: For the last few months, we've been working on bringing the first three Splinter Cell games - Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - to the PS3.
Splinter Cell and Sam Fisher don't need an introduction; these three games are highly acclaimed games and it has been a great pleasure for us to work on these titles.
The PS3 Game
When we started this project, one of our main goals was to provide the players with the best possible content. Hence we decided to port the game from the PC version which had more content and detail compared to the PS2 version.

142w ago - Behaviour Santiago's Creative Director David Williams has announced that Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime is coming to PlayStation Network tomorrow and revealed the story behind the PSN title today, as follows:
As any fan knows, the Ghostbusters universe features lots of cool characters and inter-dimensional lore. However, with Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, we still wanted to add something that would lure new people to the world of Ghostbusters and also excite the veteran fans.
In Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, the story begins 4000 years ago with a strange cult mourning the death of Dumazu, an ancient demon of death and destruction. Fast forward to 1989, when museum curator Janosz Poha is sent to a mental institution following the events in Ghostbusters 2.
There he meets Ismael, the self-proclaimed last member of the cult of Dumazu. Ismael seeks a Shard of the Relic of Nilhe, a mystic artifact that possesses the power to bring Dumazu the Destroyer back to life, and he tasks Janosz with obtaining it. Janosz's reward: Dana Barrett.
Some years later, following Janosz's release from the mental institution, a wave of unusual paranormal manifestations start appearing all over New York City.
