84w ago - Sorcery Creative Director Brian Upton of Santa Monica Studios has shared a video today showcasing the making of Sorcery, which spotlights the magical technology of the PlayStation Move controller.
To quote: This is the first post in a four-part series from the development team about the making of Sorcery.
In this video we talk about how artists, engineers, and designers at The Workshop designed the game to take advantage of the unique capabilities of the Move controller in order to create a completely original spell-casting experience.
While some motion-controlled games feel like you're playing "Simon Says", the gestures in Sorcery are fluid and organic.
Aiming spells and chaining them together into powerful combos requires both creative thinking and quick reflexes. Here's a look...
Sorcery will be available in stores in North America on Tuesday, May 22nd.
85w ago - Plastic Studios Game Director Michal Staniszewski has made available a video today unveiling the PlayStation Move mystery game Datura, which hits PSN on May 8th 2012.
To quote: Hello, I'm Michal from Team Plastic and we are really happy to bring you Datura, which we can confirm today is coming to PSN on May 8th.
Datura is a spicy mixture between an old-school adventure and a modern interactive experience. The game has a couple of interpretation levels, so it's up to you to experience it on your own and share your thoughts afterward with others.
From a technical standpoint, Datura brings you a novel gaming mechanics based on the PlayStation Move motion controller. We created a virtual hand that you can operate and touch nearly everything in the game.
If you don't have a motion controller, you can still play with a DualShock 3 controller. For an even greater experience, Datura also fully supports stereoscopic 3D.
The game was designed to have a film like narrative and we encourage you to play through it in one session to really experience as one. We are excited about releasing it and will be happy to read your reactions afterwards.
90w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has announced today that Foosball 2012 will be hitting both PS3 and PS Vita, and will include PS Move and Cross Play support!
To quote: Hi everybody! This is Jakub from Grip Games, the folks who brought you The Impossible Game, MiniSquadron and One Epic Game. We are back to present you our newest creation - Foosball 2012 for PS3 and PS Vita.
As you have probably guessed - it is a table football ("foosball") game. The very first one for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, so we made sure that we packed it up with lots of features and game modes, like various kinds of tables (American style, European style), customizations, ball types and trick shots to keep you entertained and experimenting for hours.
The World Tour single-player mode will let you travel across the globe and challenge AI opponents in nearly 30 locations. More social players can look forward to a local multiplayer for up to four and online multiplayer, where you can match against the rest of the world and rank up to become the table football champion.
PlayStation Move is also supported on PS3. If you own this magic wand, you can control Foosball 2012 exactly like you would control a real table football, with 1:1 movement...
91w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman is here with a new video demonstrating PlayStation Move with the new PSN game Datura below.
To quote: I've never seen a game quite like Datura. I encountered this upcoming PSN adventure title last week during a GDC demonstration that showed off the game's intricate use of the PlayStation Move motion controller.
In Datura, your gestures with PS Move guide a disembodied hand onscreen, a bit like a mouse cursor but in a full 3D space. The motion tracking is 1:1, so I was able to reach into the game to interact with the environment, whether it was to caress a tree trunk or pull a hand-drawn map in for closer inspection.
In the video below, Producer Matt Morton gives a full tour of Datura's interface and universe - it's absolutely worth watching.
Intrigued by the game's cryptic presentation and strong emphasis on player choice, I spoke with Director Michal Staniszewski to learn more about his inspirations.
If Datura intrigues you, be sure to tune into this Thursday's PlayStation Blogcast for another segment discussing this enigmatic PSN title. And if you have questions, be sure to leave them in the comments.
