54w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill posted up a video today from Gamescom 2013 showcasing Driveclub, dubbed the social network of racers below.

To quote: Guten tag from Gamescom! I hope you got a chance to see yesterday's press conference, where we saw a glut of new games announced (and finally found out when we can get our own PS4s!).

Sid and I are in Germany, tracking down new info for the latest games. Yesterday, I sat in on a presentation by Col Rodgers, the game director on PS4's upcoming launch exclusive, Driveclub.

He went into detail about Driveclub's social features, the PS Plus Edition of the game, and showed us how Remote Play on PS Vita works.

Rodgers described Driveclub as the "social network for racing games," and this is exemplified by the game's Challenge system. If you feel especially confident about a run on a certain track, with a certain car, even at a certain time of day, you can issue a challenge to your club, sending a notification to their PS4s or to their mobile phones (courtesy of the Driveclub Mobile app).

As they play and try to beat your challenge, they'll rack up points for the club.

Things get interesting when you elect to challenge your other friends, who might not be part of your club. If...
 

Video: DuckTales: Remastered PSN Hits PlayStation Network Today

55w ago - Capcom Producer Rey Jimenez confirmed that DuckTales: Remastered PSN hits PlayStation Network today with a trailer video below.

To quote: I've been working with the team at WayForward Technologies to bring you guys DuckTales: Remastered, launching today for PS3 as part of PlayStation Store PLAY.

At the start of development, the main goal of the project revolved around updating the game while keeping the gameplay true to the original NES game.

As the game progressed in development, we found that all of the new content really started to bring the original cartoon to life as well.

For those that may not know, the original DuckTales is firmly seated in the pantheon of the greatest NES games of all time. Widely praised for its tight controls, addicting platforming, and some of the best 8-bit music known to humanity, DuckTales stood apart as a fantastic licensed game.

When creating DuckTales: Remastered, the very first step was to make sure the game felt right, meaning it played just like the NES version. To do this, early versions were tuned so that you could play the original NES version of the game and our new version at the same time with one controller. So for your pure platform gamers, you're going to find that this game just feels right.

Video: Mars War Logs is Out Tomorrow on PlayStation Network

55w ago - Spiders Studio Project Manager Walid Miled confirmed that Mars War Logs is out tomorrow on PlayStation Network.

To quote: As a sci-fi action RPG, Mars War Logs will take you to a never-before-seen version of the Red Planet.

The Turmoil, an event that transformed Mars, reversed centuries of terraforming. Human governments struggle to keep a once-prosperous Martian civilization together while battling over precious resources.

Mars War Logs is the story of Roy Temperance and Innocence Smith. One's a renegade technomancer, and the other was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It's a tale of friendship, resistance, and freedom.

Spiders Studio was founded with the Mars project in mind, but it took nearly four years for the idea to mature and the tools to develop.

One of the greatest challenges was to get the player involved with our characters and their quest for freedom and justice. To do so, we empowered the player with choices that really affect the outcomes and events of the plot.

Mars War Logs is also, and foremost, an action RPG. Players have to fight other humans and mutants, but there are also monsters unique to a Martian ecology that are shaped by Mars' wild terrain, the Turmoil, and human terraforming.

We put a lot of...

56w ago - Q-Games Producer James Mielke shared a video below today spotlighting the new PS3 Visualizer application from Q-Games which arrives this Tuesday.

To quote: Hi everyone! It's been a while but I'm back for a second tour of duty on PlayStation.Blog, although I should point out that I switched Qs in the interim (I was formerly a producer at Q Entertainment, and am now a producer at Q-Games).

The reason for my check-in here today is to announce a brand-new app (you'll find it in the 'Apps' section on PSN) for PlayStation 3 simply titled Visualizer, which, as the name suggests, is a new set of over two dozen music visualizers to use with your PS3's music library.

As you may know, Q-Games is known for its technological contributions to the games industry, in addition to its PixelJunk series of games. Q (initially Dylan Cuthbert and Kentaro Yoshida) crafted the legendary [Register or Login to view links] for the original PlayStation 2 reveal, and later as a company were responsible for a lot of the visual effects, XMB bar, and visualizers built in to the PlayStation 3. Q-Games also handled a lot of the interface programming on PS Vita, so, essentially, we know our way around Sony's hardware.
