200°
167w ago - Cold Beam Games CEO Steve Hunt shared some background today on the upcoming PS3 video game entitled Beat Hazard Ultra, which will arrive on PSN in September and be powered by your music!

To quote: My name is Steve Hunt and I'm excited to talk about my PSN game [Register or Login to view links], which hits the PS3 this September. I wrote the game from scratch on my own, in my bedroom!

About the Game

Beat Hazard Ultra is a twin stick arcade shooter that is entirely powered by YOUR music! Just copy some music on to your PS3 hard drive, or use the built-in songs, choose a track, and be dazzled by the eye-bleeding visuals as you blast away at enemy ships to the sound of your favorite pumping tunes.

Everything you see in the game is dictated by the music in some way, from the firepower of your ship to the number and patterns of enemies coming at you. Each track produces a unique (but, most importantly, repeatable) level.





In addition to Standard play, Ultra has plenty of cool gameplay features to keep you busy, including Boss Rush and Survival modes, 23 perks to unlock and 42 in-game challenges that award 14 trophies. There are also three awesome...

Video: BioShock Infinite PS3 Q&A: Ken Levine's PlayStation Moves

50°
167w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a Q&A video interview today with Ken Levine who discusses BioShock Infinite PS3 and his PlayStation Moves.

To quote: It's always a pleasure to speak with Ken Levine, creative director for the award-winnging BioShock and the PS3 dystopian epic BioShock Infinite.

Ken's been good enough to drop by before, bringing news of PlayStation Move support as well as an upcoming PS Vita BioShock game, but we've never been able to immortalize him in crisp HD video.

Until now. In Rey's lovingly produced video feature, Levine lays out his plan for Infinite domination, starting with creating a convincing relationship between lead characters Booker and Elizabeth as they seek to escape the crumbling city of Columbia.

Levine also touches on the origins of Songbird, a biomechanical beast that has jealously locked Elizabeth in the depths of Columbia since her birth. Songbird completes a warped sort of love triangle between Booker and Elizabeth that promises to play out in the game in a big way. "There's a lot of mystery around Songbird, and I think people will be surprised by his relationship with Elizabeth – it's a complicated relationship that has elements of light and elements of darkness."
