To quote: With TRON Legacy bringing the uncanny valley to theaters nationwide on December 17th in IMAX 3D and Disney Digital 3D, the pressure's on TRON: Evolution to serve up some bleeding-edge hardware of its own. Luckily, TRON: Evolution on the PS3 is locked and loaded state-of-the-art stereoscopic 3D as well as PlayStation Move support.
We spoke with Game Director Darren Hedges for the full skinny on TRON: Evolution and grabbed first video of PlayStation Move controls in action for the epic lightcycle sequences in the campaign.

131w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has shared details on Hyperdimension Neptunia for PlayStation 3 today, describing the upcoming PS3 title as console gaming personified.
To quote: I just wanted to stop by to provide you with some tasty tidbits about Hyperdimension Neptunia for PS3. The epic tale of the meek Neptune, Compa, and IF on their search for Histoire is headed to the U.S. and I wanted to talk more in-depth about the game.
The battle system in Hyperdimension Neptunia provides customizable, varied approaches to gameplay. Each character is able to build combos against mobs and bosses, and depending on how you decide to link or structure your four-command combo, some really powerful abilities and really long chains can be created.
