19w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Lost Planet 3 for PlayStation 3 with details below, as follows:
Jim Peyton's wife, Grace, keeps him warm in the ferocious cold of E.D.N. III with her easy smile and knowing looks. Even though she's off-world, her video messages are enough for Jim, the star of Lost Planet 3. He's here to do a job, earn some credits, and get back to his family.
It's easy to see the wild west influences of Capcom's co-developer, Spark Unlimited, in Lost Planet 3, which launches on August 27th in North America.
The developers at Spark return the series to a more primal, personal experience, more in line with the cult hit original that eschews Lost Planet 2's tropical detour and large-scale cooperative design.
The core of Lost Planet 3 is Jim. He's a no-nonsense guy - well written, acted, and instantly likeable. He's thrust into his role on E.D.N. III as a rig pilot and construction expert, but he's soon slinging guns and sipping on hot soup to bat off the native critters and cold, respectively. He carries a pistol he's not afraid to use, and he's willing to tackle the hard jobs at a moment's notice... assuming there's hazard pay involved.
19w ago - PlayStation Access TV Deputy Editor Rob Pearson shared a hands-on peek at the PlayStation 4 console out of the PS4 box below today!
To quote: Greetings! As anticipation for this year's PS4 launch bubbles into a froth of frenzied excitement, we know a few of you will be asking stuff like 'but just how big is the damn thing? Will it fit snugly under my television? Can I stand it up? How many USB ports does it have?'
That's why we've taken PlayStation 4 out from behind its Perspex curtain and thrust it into the capable hands of PlayStation Access Community Manager, Hollie Bennett, who in our latest video gives you a close-up look at the gorgeous new console from every possible angle.
There's also a look at the swanky PlayStation Camera, so check out the video for a first-hand glimpse and what you'll be taking home with you later in 2013.
While you're at it, why not check out the rest of the PlayStation Access YouTube channel? We've got loads of PS4 video content for you to chew on. Enjoy!
20w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with Killzone: Shadow Fall on PlayStation 4 with some PS4 footage below in video format.
To quote: At a recent event in New York, I got my hands on Guerrilla Games' upcoming PS4 launch title, Killzone: Shadow Fall.
The game will feel instantly familiar to anyone who's followed the long-running series, but there are enough new features and additions that even the most battle-worn Helghan veterans will want a primer before heading into battle.
The tools at your disposal in Shadow Fall are many: In addition to the requisite bullet-driven armaments, the new OWL drone gives you an enormous tactical advantage. Swipe up on DualShock 4's touchpad to set the OWL into attack mode, point your crosshairs at a space in front of an enemy and press L1 to deploy the drone, which both attacks its target head-on and serves as a distraction while you flank around the other side. The OWL is also incredibly useful when trying to keep track of one of the game's teleporting enemies. Just follow the bullets.
The OWL has other uses, too. Swipe left on the touchpad to put the drone into stun mode, which will incapacitate foes and nearby electronics.
Swipe downward for a drop-anywhere shield, creating last-minute...
21w ago - Sony Marketing Promotions Specialist Michael Steranka announced today that PlayStation 4 will be present at Comic-Con 2013 including the first public PS4 hands-on presentation with details below.
To quote: As Comic-Con regulars know, there's nothing more valuable at the yearly convention than time. With panel lines literally out the door and the Exhibitor Hall packed wall-to-wall with scurrying people, it's often hard to decide how to allocate your precious time. This year, we're making that decision a no-brainer. Want to know why?
You guessed it (probably because it's in the headline of this post!) - we're bringing PS4 to Comic-Con 2013.
For the first time ever, gamers can go hands-on with the PS4. On top of that, we'll be showing off some of this year's most highly anticipated PS3 and PS Vita titles, as well as participating in a number of panels throughout the weekend. If that's not enough, we're also hosting contests at the PlayStation booth every day where we'll be giving away PS Vitas!
To help you plan your Comic-Con experience accordingly, here's a list of everything PlayStation at this year's convention:
