2w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt shared a video today detailing PlayStation 4 development on Watch_Dogs for Sony's upcoming PS4 video game console.
To quote: Today we're pleased to debut a Watch_Dogs developer diary as part of PlayStation's "Conversations With Creators," an ongoing series that focuses on PS4 game development with some of the most accomplished game studios in the world.
In this video, you get to meet two of the driving forces in the Watch_Dogs dev team: Dominic, our senior producer and Jonathan, the creative director. Together, they discuss the vision of Watch_Dogs and ultimately, some of the development details for the PlayStation platforms.
By working in close collaboration with PlayStation, the team is working to harness the full power of the PS4. This gives them the opportunity to create a truly no-compromises experience with high-resolution environment textures and advanced special effects. The game experience, much like the city you'll get to play in, will be rich, deep, and detailed.
As Jonathan and Dominic explain in the video, connectivity is at the heart of the Watch_Dogs experience. We already know Aiden is connected to his own environment, but we also want...
2w ago - Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson shared a new Fuse trailer confirming that the demo lights up PSN on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: We've been working on Fuse, our first new console game IP since Resistance: Fall of Man, for several years now. The wait is almost over - Fuse launches May 28th on PlayStation 3. For an early taste of Fuse, grab the demo - it launches on PSN next Tuesday.
The demo will allow you to experience lethal teamwork with up to three friends online (or 2-player split-screen). Overstrike 9 has tracked the stolen Fuse source to a remote Raven base in Pakistan's snowy Karakoram Mountains.
The team must stop rogue group Raven from carrying out its horrific plan to form a new world order. The section of the demo comes from around the halfway point of the game, so we've powered up the four characters a bit to give you a sample of all their capabilities (and you can level them up further!)
Now, some of you may be asking, what is this game? We'd like to say Fuse is what you'd get if you took the dry humor and lethal teamwork from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and combined it with the alien weaponry from District 9.
It's a uniquely Insomniac universe, one where villains occupy strongholds in exotic locations...

3w ago - Frima Studio's Laurent Mercure posted up a video announcing that Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge invades PSN today.
Below are the details, to quote: We are proud to announce that Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge is launching on PlayStation Store today. Since it's Cross-Play and Cross-Buy, you'll get both PS Vita and PlayStation 3 versions for just $9.99. PlayStation Plus members in the US can pick it up for free!
Here's a quick recap, in case you didn't read our earlier posts. Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge is a real-time strategy game. However, it's not your classic RTS with resource gathering, base building and tech-tree climbing.
No, it's pure, unadulterated tactical zombie assault! You've got two zombie packs, a mobile base and a monster at your beck and call, each controlled using a different symbol button on the controller.
In multiplayer mode, both teams start out at the opposite ends of the map. As they move across town toward an inevitable confrontation, they capture buildings that grant diverse benefits. The more buildings you take, the more zombies you have and the more special zombies you unlock.
Trophy hunters out there will be happy to hear that Zombie Tycoon...
