70w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video below today introducing PlayStation's President Andy House.
To quote: At last week's International CES, I had the opportunity to meet head of Sony Computer Entertainment, President and CEO Andrew House. House ascended to the role after working for Sony in Japan, Europe, and here at SCEA over the past two decades.

If you'd like to hear how Andrew House got started in the industry and rose through the ranks, listen to his "origin story" on the Official PlayStation Blogcast Episode 007.

76w ago - Codemasters Community Manager Ian Webster has made available some fresh video footage today introducing DiRT Showdown for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: We're very excited to be able to reveal to you the latest title in our award-winning DiRT series: DiRT Showdown!
Before I tell you a bit more about the game, take a look at our newly released announcement trailer to give you an idea of the kind of high-octane action you can expect to see in the game.
DiRT Showdown is due out on PS3 in May 2012, and is brought to you by the same team that brought you the other titles in the award-winning DiRT series. The game combines pick-up-and-play controls with electrifying events, frenzied crowds, and stunning graphics to deliver high-octane, dive in and drive thrills straight from the first event.
The game's going to feature three main disciplines built around the pillars of speed, style and destruction. To help illustrate what I'm talking about, here's a broad breakdown of the three disciplines in question.

78w ago - Today Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has posted up a video introducing MotorStorm RC for PSN and PS Vita below.
To quote: I'm delighted to be able to announce - and show a trailer for - MotorStorm RC, Evolution Studios' upcoming radio controlled off-road racing game for PS Vita and PlayStation Network.
It was also announced literally moments ago on stage - so it's absolutely hot off the press! You can watch first video of MotorStorm RC in action here.
I've been game director to a small, elite team at Evolution Studios for most of the year, creating a simulation of high-speed radio-controlled car racing for PSN download.
We're extremely pleased with how the game is coming together; it's a perfect combination of classic racing with really modern connectivity features and it's already bigger than your average download game, with visually stunning renditions of all four MotorStorm worlds (and eight of their vehicle classes).
Every aspect of the game comes loaded with endless competition that you can share with friends and rivals worldwide - whether that's on PS3 or PS Vita, or both - and we're still packing it full of challenges, race types and features too!
