76w ago - Today Morgan Haro of Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms is here with this weeks US PSN updates below, as follows:
We kick off this week's PlayStation Store update with the digital release of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier!
Join an elite team of highly trained, cut-throat special-ops soldiers, armed to the teeth with unrivalled combat technology and cutting-edge military hardware.
Ghost Recon takes you through the globe's deadliest warzones to hunt down the highest value targets, and it's available to download to your PS3 from the PlayStation Store with today's update.
We know most of you are still playing Gravity Rush on PS Vita, but the hits keep coming with Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes arriving today. Set within the Batman universe, and filled with LEGO versions of heroes and villains from the Batman comic series; the game features an engrossing storyline.
Also in-game dialog, classic LEGO video game play that includes 2 player simultaneous support, and amazing PS Vita specific controls and visuals. Batman-heads, don't miss it and check out PlayStation Blog's Jeff Rubenstein interview with Matthew Ellison from Telltale Games on the development of the game.
77w ago - Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer aldostools has made available a PS3 Game Updates v1.0 homebrew application which allows you to identify and download updates for video game backups.
Below are the changes from his blog, as follows: Here is a small update for They Do Not Die 2 along with its first Windows release.
I've added blood and corpses. On Wii and PS3 they quickly shrink until they disappear but on Windows they fade instead of shrink (which I think looks a lot better) and there can be more of them in the game world at a time which means that they disappear more slowly.
I've also made a handful of minor and most likely unnoticeable changes (mostly related to city generation).
77w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy is here today with a KickBeat PS Vita gameplay video and some Zen Pinball 2 updates from this year's E3 convention.
To quote: Zen Studios is fresh off an exciting and successful E3. Although our presence was modest, we still made a big impact.
KickBeat for PS Vita won Destructoid's Best of Rhythm E3 award, and Zen Pinball 2 was nominated for Best of E3 2012 by IGN and Best Portable Game by Destructoid. We are extremely honored to be included alongside the industry's best!
KickBeat sure received a positive response at E3. We think it's because there is nothing else like it, and a lot of people caught on to that.
There were also some people who simply told us we were crazy when they watched us play, but once they got their hands on the game they had BIG smiles on their faces. We have some new video that was released right before and then during E3, we wanted to make sure you guys got a chance to view as well.
The first video is the intro story chapter to KickBeat, setting up our Kung Fu style cheesy story. All of these story scenes are hand animated, and yes, we hired professional voice actors. As a matter of fact, at least one of the actors we've used came by the Sony booth to say "hi," as they are all from Los Angeles.
77w ago - Sony Community Development Manager Jamie Brayshaw has announced today that MotorStorm RC is getting new free demo tracks and feature updates with details below!
To quote: Attention MotorStorm fans! MotorStorm RC - one of the most popular PSN games of the year - has just received a community-focused update and I'm here to give you all the details!
Beginning today, MotorStorm RC fans will have access to new tracks to try out for free, experience fun and more accessible races, the chance to share challenges whenever you like, and recover lost medals!
Please note that it can take up to an hour for the update to be available in all territories. You will be prompted to download this game update when you next fire up the game from the PS3 XMB or PS Vita LiveArea.
It doesn't matter if you're new to MotorStorm RC or if you've been playing from the start: This update makes MotorStorm RC better for you and your friends. I might be a little biased, but it's definitely worth a look if you've got a PS3 or a PS Vita - and even more so if you have both! So please give it a go and tell your friends about it too.
Jamie Brayshaw: What does the update do for MotorStorm RC?
