17w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green outlined how to survive the Killzone: Mercenary Multiplayer PlayStation Vita Beta below today.
To quote: We're just a few weeks away from the launch of Killzone: Mercenary, but gamers won't have to wait that long to cut their teeth on Mercenary's impressive multiplayer suite.
The team here at Guerrilla Cambridge is expanding the multiplayer beta to give the servers a good test before Mercenary launches on September 10th in North America for PS Vita.

17w ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty has shared several videos today unveiling some of the secrets from The Last of Us PS3 Multiplayer for fans below.
To quote: Greetings, PlayStation-ers! My name is Colin Moriarty, IGN's Senior Editor.
If you're a PlayStation fanatic - and since you're on the PlayStation.Blog, you probably are - you may recognize me as the man in charge of IGN's PS4, PS3, and PS Vita coverage. You may also know me as one-third of Podcast Beyond.
Today, I write my inaugural PlayStation.Blog post to tell you about something I'm very excited for. See, I'm pretty darn keen on The Last of Us... so much so, in fact, that I got sucked in for about 40 hours worth of multiplayer madness after the game launched. And that got me thinking: who's responsible for The Last of Us' most understated feature, its online suite?
Naturally, I found an answer. Naughty Dog's David Ballard was kind enough to come to IGN's San Francisco headquarters to record a series of videos with me, one for each map in the multiplayer suite.
19w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared a video below today announcing Arkham Origins PS3 Multiplayer takes crimefighting online!
To quote: The Batman: Arkham series has proven that superhero games have the potential to be some of the best in the biz, but they've been strictly single-player outings so far. In Batman: Arkham Origins, WB Games and Splash Damage are building an online multiplayer experience to complement the main campaign. And guess what - it's really good.
Called Invisible Predator Online, this new mode takes the concept of the earlier games' Challenge Rooms and puts other players into the role of the Joker and Bane's thugs. Yes, this raises lots of questions. The general premise is as follows:
Eight players take to the streets of Gotham in the game's multiplayer mode: three Joker thugs, three Bane thugs, and two heroes in the form of Batman and Robin. The thugs compete to wipe out the other team and capture control points in what plays out like a third-person, cover-based shooter. Meanwhile, the two heroes prowl the playfield in an attempt to intimidate enemies and provoke the gang leaders into calling the whole operation off.
When playing as Batman or Robin, variety matters. Repeating the same takedowns over and over will result in lower...
20w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with a video showcasing The Last of Us Multiplayer on PlayStation 3 which includes 24 survival tips below.
To quote: Two things. First, The Last of Us has a multiplayer mode called Supply Raid that is the freshest, most addictive mode I've experienced in years. Second, I apologize for not posting this guide weeks ago - I've been playing way, way too much TLOU!
The Last of Us differs from other multiplayer games in many ways. It's stealthy, ammo and resources are scarce, and teamwork is absolutely vital. What's more, your total kills take a backseat to Parts - a currency that you can spend on weapon upgrades, ammo, power weapons, and armor.
All of which are capable of evening the odds in a match. You score Parts by downing and executing enemy players, but also reviving teammates, healing friends, and crafting and distributing items.
This tip guide will focus primarily on Supply Raid, which is TLOU's answer to the venerable Team Deathmatch. Stick around for some tips we solicited from Twitter, and leave your own tips in the comments below!
Upgrade melee ASAP. The upgraded two-by-four is the ultimate equalizer, and you'll want it right away. It's...
