To quote: EDF! EDF! EDF! Just shouting out this simple phrase brings back fond memories of Earth Defense Force 2017, and now I'm pumped to share more details about the launch of Earth Defense Force 2025 in February of next year. In particular, what fans can expect from some of the upcoming weapon packs that will be available via pre-order or DLC.

We've been on tour with Earth Defense Force 2025 for the last few months, showing off all its awesome features at events like E3, PAX Prime, and New York Comic-Con. Fans continuously ask us if the DLC from Japan will be available in North America and Europe. And I can proudly say "yes!" We'll make sure all content from Japan makes it over here at some point, and we'll have more details on all of that in the near future.

In the meantime, we're pleased to announce that customers at GameStop can start pre-ordering Earth Defense Force 2025 tomorrow, and will receive a special Weapons Pack for free.

26w ago - Project Lead Sanabu Washizuka confirmed today that Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God hits PS Vita consoles on December 10th, 2013.

To quote: Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God, which tells the tale of a young, aspiring sorceress named Pupuru, will launch for PS Vita on December 10th. Pupuru is on a quest to save her friend's curry restaurant from the big bad curry chain that's moved in.

With the help (or not so much help) of a cast of wacky and strange characters - including the grumpy-but-lovable creature, Kuu - Pupuru's quest to find ingredients to make the legendary curry becomes a delectable adventure fun for just about anyone.

Despite Sorcery Saga's quirky and cute storyline, it offers players truly challenging gameplay. Sorcery Saga is more than just heading to your local curry house and eating tasty morsels of deliciousness; it's a turn-based RPG that allows players to move freely around a dungeon in a grid-like system.

Once players encounter an enemy, they'll be able to attack or use items or skills to fend off the onslaught of creatures. Let's delve deeper into Sorcery Saga's gameplay and see what this game is all about!

Sorcery Saga is a roguelike dungeon crawler. Fundamentally, roguelike gameplay gives players permanent consequences...

27w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements announced today that Daylight on PS4 dubbed The Power of the Unknown is slated to hit PlayStation 4 in 2014.

To quote: In an age of horror games with carefully crafted scares and achingly detailed environments, Zombie Studios is trying something new with its upcoming horror game, Daylight.

Players awake inside an abandoned hospital, with only the light of their cellphone to guide them through the thick black. But unlike other horror games, Daylight changes every time you play.

To better understand Daylight, and the scares within, we asked Zombie Studios Creative Director Andre Maguire to explain how the game came together and why procedurally generated scares give the horror genre a shot in the arm. Maguire also tells us about developing on PS4, and what inspirations fueled the team members in their creative process.

Daylight is tentatively scheduled to launch in early 2014.

PlayStation.Blog: What inspired the team at Zombie Studios to develop a hardcore horror title like Daylight, especially following successful first-person shooters such as Blacklight?

Andre Maguire: We love the horror genre, and we wanted to try and create a game that would be scary every time you played it. We knew that...

28w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff announced alongside a video that Dishonored Game of the Year Edition hits PS3 tomorrow.

To quote: It's hard to believe this week marks the one year anniversary of Dishonored's release. it's been rewarding to see so many people people get the game Arkane set out to develop.

It's wonderful and very humbling to see the game win numerous Game of the Year accolades (and be able to release a "Game of the Year Edition"), but there's even more satisfaction in hearing fans embracing the fiction and emergent gameplay.

When Arkane was making the final push on finishing the game, their building excitement to see the game in the wild was palpable - like children on Christmas Eve. Visions of YouTube speedruns danced in their heads.

They weren't disappointed. Launch day and the months that followed provided endless entertainment - seeing the variety of ways players took on the role of Corvo - non-lethal playthroughs, absolutely brutal and literally unthinkable killer moves, and everything in between.

Amazing cosplay, fan-fiction, and fan art embracing provided icing on the cake. You guys really like The Outsider.
