Sony Shares Answers to Mafia II PlayStation 3 Fan Questions

100°
231w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared answers to several Mafia II PlayStation 3 fan questions, as follows:

Last week I attended a [Register or Login to view links] preview event, armed with a list of questions you wanted me to investigate.

After speaking with Director of Creative Production Jack Scalici, I left with those answers... and a tommy gun filled with tequila (seriously). Since there isn't enough in there for me to mix margaritas for all of you, I'll just cut straight to the interview.

PlayStation.Blog: Why go with Empire Bay instead of New York City?

Jack Scalici: It's New York, with a little bit of influence of Chicago, with a bit of San Francisco mixed in there. But when you do New York you have to do it right, and it has to be exact, and you'll get some psychopaths on the forums who'll take a map of New York City, and a map of your game and point out everything that you did wrong and bad and why go through that?

And also, if you've ever driven through New York, it's not the most gameplay-driving-friendly city. There are a lot of one way streets, and it's not as much fun as it could be if you were driving around doing 90 mph in a convertable blasting 1950's rock 'n' roll....

231w ago - Sony's Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview today of FirstPlay Episode 16 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: We've got three exciting videos for you this week on FirstPlay. Actually we've got way more than three, but there are three really exciting ones.

First we go hands-on with zombie sequel Dead Rising 2, slashing, drilling and electrocuting our way through a Vegas-style Casino crammed with rotting undead fleshsacks, and getting a very firm grip on the game's weapon creation system. Saw blades and a lawnmower you say? Interesting...

Then we've got previews of period underworld epic Mafia 2, including an interview with the 2K dev team, and some properly incredible footage of SEGA's awesome looking robot-and-flames shooter, Vanquish. It has a sort of Transformers noise! Amazing.

On top of that we've got the second part of our Red Dead Redemption guide - falling to our baser urges, this week involves mostly shooting - plus a look at what's new on the PSP comic store, selected highlights of the latest downloadable movies and a round-up of your most amazing Skate bails.

Lastly we've got our screenshot galleries, which this week include MotorStorm: Apocalypse, FIFA 11, Final Fantasy XIV and, a game I'm particularly...
