83w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli is here with the Uncharted 3 PS3 Patch 1.11 notes which include the return of the Lab, an Elimination Mode and more outlined below!
To quote: It's back! We are very excited to unveil patch 1.11 for UNCHARTED 3, which will be live for download by the end of May.
First of all, we can hail the long anticipated return of the Lab. However if your memory is fuzzy about what the Lab is, we first introduced it in UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer.
The Lab is a playlist featuring a unique series of multiplayer game types that our designers have concocted that focus on, above all, being fun. We're kicking things off with a T-bolt and Pistole only map. So once the patch drops later this month, log onto UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer and give it a whirl. Let the experiments begin!
As for other changes happening in patch 1.11 UNCHARTED 3's Lead Multiplayer Designer Robert Cogburn and Game Director Justin Richmond have something to say:
Or if you'd rather read everything in list form...
87w ago - Producer Matt Charles has shared details today on Borderlands 2 from PAX East for PlayStation 3 fans today!
To quote: This weekend at the Borderlands 2 booth, we granted PAX East visitors chance to play with two brand-new characters for Borderlands 2 - Salvador the Gunzerker and Maya the Siren - in a new environment called the Caustic Caverns.
The Gunzerker and Siren classes have made great strides compared to their counterparts from the original game. Players who choose to play as Salvador will be able to use his Gunzerking ability to run into a crowd with two guns blazing.
If you played the first game, you may recognize this as an evolution of Brick's Berserking skill. Meanwhile, Maya's new Siren skill Phaselock isolates an enemy inside a phase bubble for a short time.
Once you've Phaselocked a target, your primary choice is whether to focus your fire on the helpless foe before it breaks free or mop up any other threats nearby. Decisions, decisions!
Borderlands has a strong history of co-op gameplay and that's still a core promise of this game. At PAX, we watched as Siren players Phaselocked an enemy, leaving an opening for the Gunzerker buddy to run up, dual-wielding, and take out the target just in the nick of time.

99w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has shared a video today announcing that Arc The Lad is returning to PlayStation Network with an accent!
To quote: We have some great news for those patient and accommodating fans of Arc the Lad.
The English-version emulation of the game has been completed and is set for re-release on January 18th in the PS one Classics, Imports section, on the EU PlayStation Network. We would like to apologise for the inconvenience and sincerely thank all of you for your immense patience during this process.
Many of our games are true Japanese imports. When we first released Arc on the EU PlayStation, the game was in Japanese. But a game of Arc's complexity needs to be in English.
Working Design's wonderfully localized version is still one of the most appreciated tactical RPGs of all time. So we can now present the full depth of story in English that was needed to enjoy this game.
Players follow the young adventurer Arc, who sets out to save a world teetering on the edge of oblivion. But he's not alone; seven different party members will join the quest over the course of the game, each one bursting with dozens of hand-drawn frames of animation that...
