266w ago - Today Sony Computer Entertainment Canada's Senior Public Relations Specialist Kyle Moffatt has announced that PSN Cards are debuting in Canada finally.

Video Comparison: Trico Leak and The Last Guardian Debut

100°
267w ago - Over the weekend JoyStiq shared a video comparison of both the old Trico leak and some recent footage from the newly dubbed title: The Last Guardian.

To quote: When we first saw the year-old leaked footage for Team ICO's third game - then known only as "Trico" - We had two thoughts. First: we really want a kitty dragon; and second: we wonder what the game looks like now.

Lucky for us, Sony's E3 keynote answered the latter, with a fresh dose of video footage of the game, newly dubbed The Last Guardian.

Here's the thing though: the first three and a half minutes of the trailer were shot-for-shot identical to the leak, with obvious visual enhancements and that got us thinking: a video comparison!





Our very own Richard Mitchell painstakingly stitched the two videos together above for your enjoyment. On the left: The Last Guardian. On the right: Trico.
 

Soulcalibur Makes its Portable Debut on Sony's PSP Console

273w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell confirms the news today that Soulcalibur will indeed be making its portable debut on Sony's PSP console.

To quote: Soulcalibur is officially coming to the PSP this summer. Called Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, this marks the series' first foray into handheld consoles... and of course, what better place to debut than the PSP.

Yesterday, Namco Bandai invited us to San Francisco for the unveiling, where a demo of Broken Destiny proved that it is already looking graphically impressive on the PSP. While Namco is remaining relatively tight-lipped on specifics for the time being, I fired off a few questions to Director Noriyuki Hiyama.





Unfortunately we were shooting in a loud room speaking through a translator, but I think you'll get the point about the new characters, multiplayer and the possibility of secret content.

Check out the vid for his responses. And drop us a note with your burning questions, as we'll most likely be getting more time with the game/team at E3 in June!
