PS3 Dev Q&A: Home's Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove 2.0

50°
118w ago - PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Cade Peterson has shared a PS3 developer Q&A interview spotlighting the Battle for Black Powder Cove 2.0 in PlayStation Home today.

To quote: Last week, PlayStation Home got an update to the action-packed free-to-play multiplayer game, Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove.

With this news, we jumped on the phone to chat with Michael Mumbauer, Director of the Visual Arts Service Group (VASG), a madly creative department within Sony Computer Entertainment America. VASG has been helping make Home content nearly since Home went Open Beta and has made some of the platform's most entertaining items and spaces, including the Home Mansion.

Although VASG creates art and code for other development teams, like several of the World Wide Studios, this is their first full game.

Michael was kind enough to let me ask some questions that will shed a little insight on the decisions that went into this 2.0 update.





PlayStation.Blog: VASG has created content for Home for years, but when Home transitioned to a game platform in itself, it was the next logical step for them to step their game up and make one. What was the original concept behind Cutthroats,...
 

Video: Foosball 2012 Dev Diary: PlayStation Move Motion Controls

200°
135w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has made available some video footage today of Foosball 2012 as part of their developer diary series which spotlights the PlayStation Move motion controls below.

To quote: In March, we announced our upcoming PS3 and PS Vita game Foosball 2012.

And now we've returned to showcase a series of short developer diaries where we introduce you to some of the game's coolest features, like PlayStation Move support, full cross-platform compatibility between PS3 and PS Vita and also the online multiplayer mode.

Our first video demonstrates Foosball 2012 and PlayStation Move motion controllers in action, showing that you can play this game exactly the way you are used from a real table football ("foosball") game.

Thanks to the precision and zero lag of PlayStation Move, even the slightest movements of your hands can be properly translated into the game, allowing you to precisely control the shot power, positions of your foosmen, and so on.

One or two PS Move controllers can be used by one player, or you can ignore motion controls and play with the time-tested DualShock 3 controller, where the left stick controls the poles and movements of the ball and the right stick is used to shoot, allowing you to accurately aim and control the shot power.

Video: Papo & Yo PlayStation 3 Dev Diary: Fantastic Realities

50°
136w ago - Minority Creative Director Vander Caballero has made available the first in a series of PlayStation 3 developer diaries spotlighting Papo & Yo dubbed Fantastic Realities below.

To quote: Hello again! Last time I was here I talked about the redesign of Monster - now I want to give everyone an even closer look at the creative and design process for Papo & Yo in our first-ever dev diary.

Please take a look - you'll get a glimpse of Minority's office, some new ways you can interact with Monster, and even see the first prototype I designed for the game!

If you've been following [Register or Login to view links]'s development, you know that the game was inspired by my childhood in South America and my relationship with my father.

But I don't want that to be the only thing that people see when they get to play the game. Papo & Yo is also about a child's imagination, and experiencing "fantastic realities" - transforming the real world into a special world that can both help and challenge you.

I feel such joy when I play with my boy and see him imagining his toys coming to life - I hope that everyone will feel this when they play Papo & Yo.
