26w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team announced that the PSP sale starts today with discounts on Killzone, LBP, GoW, MotorStorm and more below!
Many of you asked for a PSP sale and now you shall receive it! Split over a number of weeks, the first wave of deals focus on our own home-grown first party titles, from LittleBigPlanet to God of War.
You'll notice each title costs almost the same as a Subway lunchtime offer - pretty awesome if I do say so myself. The below offers will run from 5th June for two weeks, when another wave of titles will take over.
27w ago - Guerrilla Games Game Director Steven Ter Heide posted up a video today showcasing conversations with PS4 creators of Killzone: Shadow Fall on PlayStation 4.
To quote: With Killzone Shadow Fall, we are part of an exciting line up of launch titles for PS4. This is both daunting and exciting, but a good feeling to have!
Since the game's announcement earlier this year at the PlayStation Meeting 2013, we have been hard at work on Killzone Shadow Fall.
At the event, we were able to give you a brief glimpse of the direction we are taking the game with live on-stage gameplay.
The demonstration focused on setting up the new conflict between the two warring factions that now occupy the same world, we are very much looking forward to sharing more of the exciting new gameplay opportunities soon.
Today we are happy to show you a developer diary as part of PlayStation's Conversations with Creators. In this video, we briefly talk about what it means to us to be a launch title on this new platform.
Killzone: Shadow Fall is scheduled for a Holiday 2013 release, and will be available exclusively on PS4.
29w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green detailed the pre-order bonuses today for those who grab Killzone: Mercenary a week early.
To quote: With each passing week, we edge closer to the launch of Killzone: Mercenary, the first PlayStation Vita entry in the acclaimed series.
Contrary to convention, Mercenary is also edging a bit toward us: we can today confirm a new North American release date of September 10th - a week earlier than our previous target.
Players who pre-order Killzone: Mercenary will receive "Blackjack's Briefcase," a reward for their early support that affords them an early edge in both the game's competitive online multiplayer and extensive Campaign mode. It includes:
Double XP Boost
• Get out ahead of the pack! Start the 48-hour clock with this special access code and all contracts, bonuses and payoffs earn you twice the normal XP for two straight days!
In-Game Cash Bonus
• Start the game and go straight to the armory! With this bonus payout, you'll have enough Vektan Cash to pick up a new weapon before you even step foot on the battlefield.
In addition to the above, fans in the United States who reserve a copy of Killzone: Mercenary at GameStop will receive an exclusive gun...
39w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared a video below today spotlighting Killzone: Mercenary where he states cash is king on PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Not long ago the US and European press got its first hands-on experiences with Killzone: Mercenary, Guerrilla Games Cambridge's upcoming PS Vita shooter. Despite gracing Vita's portable screen, the team behind Mercenary is hellbent on providing a full FPS experience with all the trimmings.
Come September, you'll get a full nine-mission story-driven campaign, an eight-player competitive multiplayer mode, and a collection of bonus challenge missions.
Watch our new video to get the inside story straight from Art Director Tom Jones.
Much has already been said concerning Killzone: Mercenary's graphical fidelity, but I'll add my voice to the choir: This is one fine, fine-looking game. Because Mercenary runs on a modified version of the Killzone 3 rendering engine, you'll see modern niceties such as volumetric lighting and smoke, high-res environment textures, gleaming metal and realistic-looking shadows.
None of this would be out of place for a modern PS3 shooter, but portable gaming rarely sees this level of extreme graphical detail....
41w ago - Guerrilla Games Senior Producer Steven Ter Heide has announced that Killzone: Shadow Fall is coming for PlayStation 4 / PS4 with a video trailer below!
To quote: Today we are happy we can finally show you what we have been working on.
It has been an amazing journey for us so far, being offered the opportunity to be a launch title for the new PlayStation, and the subsequent mild panic to figure out how to best handle all of that.
But being able to now share it with you is both a scary and proud moment. We are hoping you will like what we have created, and are happy to present you with the first glimpse of Killzone Shadow Fall.
The piece of live gameplay we presented at the PlayStation Meeting 2013 shows you a new world, a new situation and a new hero.
The game is set in a near future, thirty years after the events of Killzone 3. The world is a very different place; two rival factions known as the Helghast and the Vektans live side by side in a futuristic city, divided by a vast wall.
Tensions are high, and the cold war they are embroiled in is about to go hot. In the midst of this all stands a Shadow Marshal, you. The most special of the special forces, tasked with maintaining...
