From jetpacks to the transforming 'hawks, along with the heavily promoted build and battle system, you definitely want to see this comprehensive extended preview of this May release.

While mechs are definitely part of Starhawk, for the hardcore mech-head, Armored Core V is stomping up with the next installment featuring persistent online war and plasma swords!





And it's time for another T-virus outbreak with Resident Evil: Raccoon City Outbreak jumping back to an earlier era of the franchise. But, this time Slant Six and Capcom have joined forces to shoot up this staple of the survival horror genre....
 

Online Features in ModNation Racers: Road Trip for PS Vita

100°
135w ago - Today Product Development Director Erich Waas has shared details on the online features in ModNation Racers: Road Trip for the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: I wanted to give Mark Wilson a break this week so that I could talk about the robust online features in ModNation Racers: Road Trip.

The team here in San Diego created an impressive list of online functionality to take advantage of the WiFi/3G and GPS functionality. This game is intended to let you take advantage of your road trips--whether they're across the country, to another state or just traveling between home and work or school.

More importantly, ModNation Racers: Road Trip was designed to work around your schedule and let you compete with your friends whenever (and wherever) you want.

1. Competitive Localized Leaderboards

When a gamer who has opted to "Use Location Data" posts a lap time to the Leaderboards, that time is connected to their current location. Gamers can personalize their location names (i.e., My Home, My Work, Mark's House Where I Always Win, etc.) for easy reference. These times become part of the Local Leaderboards which gamers can use to compete in a fun arcade-style atmosphere.

Gamers can also select one of their saved locations and view other competitors'...

Video: Virtua Tennis 4 PS Vita Exclusive Features and VT Apps

200°
158w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available some video footage today of Virtua Tennis 4 for PS Vita which showcases the game's exclusive features and VT apps below.

To quote: Virtua Tennis 4 for PlayStation Vita first stepped onto the court at E3. Even at that early stage in its development, the game showed signs of ambition.

It seems that Sega is taking great care to adapt the tried-and-true gameplay for PS Vita by extensively leveraging the handheld's hardware strengths, all without dumbing down the series's winning formula.

Now, at Gamescom, I finally got to see some of these game modes in action.

Virtua Tennis 4's core experience is nearly identical to its recently-released PS3 counterpart; you can create a character, start a career, and participate in tournaments while enhancing your skills through all kinds of bizarre tennis-related skill tests. Likewise, you can jump into the shoes of Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, or other real-world tennis stars.





What PS Vita brings to the court is a new, yet optional way to control the main serve-and-volley action, plus a series of "VT Apps."

The core gameplay opens up considerably thanks to the PS Vita touch screen. Tap on the screen...

To quote: So I've finally gotten around to releasing 3.0. It's pretty much the same as in 2.99.534 except that you can now arbitrarily zoom the video via a setting in the popup menu.

I'm leaving on a vacation tomorrow and wont bring the PS3 with me so don't expect any (tested) PS3 features the next weeks. I will hopefully find time to do a bunch of other non-platform depended features though.

Once I get back I hope to address all aspects of audio on the PS3, in particular:

  • AV sync problems
  • Digital output
  • Volume control

Have a nice summer!
