122w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some new PlayStation Vita gameplay trailer video footage today as PS Vita takes San Francisco!

To quote: Yesterday, more than 60 members of the gaming press piled into our Vita Hill social club in San Francisco to go hands-on with a slew of updated PS Vita games.

The event showcased everything from Escape Plan, MotorStorm RC, Super Stardust Delta, and UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Army Corps of Hell, FIFA Soccer... even Plants vs. Zombies (now confirmed!) joined in on the fun.

It was a memorable night, and one you can recreate right now if you happen to live near the San Francisco Bay Area – just visit the Vita Hill social club and bring some friends (the club is free and open to the public through mid-February).

Expect to see these PS Vita social clubs expanding to new cities in the coming weeks. And a comprehensive PS Vita mall tour is currently rolling out across the country through December, so if you've been dying to play PS Vita right now, you're certainly not short on options!

130w ago - ColdBeamGames CEO Steve Hunt has shared a Beat Hazard Ultra PSN gameplay video today alongside a PS3 Trophy guide below, as follows:

I'm the developer of the music driven shooter Beat Hazard Ultra. Now the game is out on PSN here's some exclusive insider gameplay, tactics and trophy tips. Use this sort-of-secret knowledge to help propel yourself up the leader boards in no time!

Beat Hazard Ultra - The Basics

Beat Hazard Ultra is a twin stick shooter that is powered by your music. The game turns any piece of music in to a level. Everything in the game is powered by the music in some way, from your weapon power to the type and formations of the enemies, and all accompanied with intense visual feedback!

Copying Music to Your PS3

Before I start, here's a quick tip about copying music to your PS3 using a USB memory stick. On the XMB go to Music->USB Device. Then press TRIANGLE and select 'Display All'. From there select 'Copy Multiple'. This will ensue your PS3 will find and copy all the music on the USB stick.

The Bad Guys

Aside from basic fodder, you will come across the following bad guys. And here's how to deal...
 

Video: Dyad for PlayStation Network: Music and Gameplay Fusion

137w ago - Dyad Creator Shawn McGrath has shared some video footage spotlighting the music and gameplay fusion in Dyad for PlayStation Network today.

To quote: Shawn here again, and I brought along Dyad's composer, David Kanaga.

We're going to talk a bit about Dyad's interactive music system, how it works and what makes it unique. We're also treating you to a free three-song EP consisting of linear mixes of Dyad's interactive music and some new screenshots!

Below is a new gameplay video showcasing one of the later levels in Dyad. Don't worry if it looks too complex! It'll make perfect sense once you've completed the earlier levels.

When you hear the term "interactive music" you might think of "rhythm games" such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Frequency, or others of that nature. Dyad's music system is very different from those games. There's no beat matching or imposed rhythm in the game.





The music doesn't dictate play, nor does it judge you. Dyad's music is reactive, meaning it's mixed dynamically on the fly, based on the current game state and how you're interacting with it. Each time you play a level, the music is different – playing Dyad can...
