Video: Soul Sacrifice is Out Next Week, New Pre-Order Trailer

50°
75w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa shared a new pre-order video trailer today announcing that Soul Sacrifice is officially out next week with details below.

To quote: Hello, PlayStation friends! We hope you're enjoying the recently released Soul Sacrifice demo.

Remember - online multiplayer support for the demo will end when the game launches next Tuesday, so if you've been curious to see how the infrastructure online handles, check it out sooner rather than later.

Just as importantly: your save files carry over to the finished game, and doing so is the only way to get your hands on a special magical Offering, so check out the demo if you haven't already.

The full game will be out next Tuesday, April 30th, but there's still time left to pre-order! Instead of yet again writing about all the goodies set aside for folks who reserve their copies, we decided to make a video. Enjoy!





We've got plenty more to share, including the second (and final) part of our special sit-down with designer Keiji Inafune, so stay tuned!
 

Acclaimed Indie Adventure Machinarium Coming to PS Vita Next Week

50°
75w ago - Amanita Design Founder Jakub Dvorsky confirmed today that acclaimed indie adventure Machinarium is coming to PS Vita next week.

Below are the details, to quote: We're thrilled to be bringing our acclaimed adventure title Machinarium to PS Vita on 1st May. When the PS3 version was released, we called it the best version of the game.

In it, we added lots of new features - like the ability to zoom in to get a closer look at the scene, magnetic hotspots, 12 Trophies and more.

The PS Vita version makes no compromises. In fact, it's even better! It includes all the enhancements from the PS3 version, but we've added some new features to complement PS Vita's capabilities.

You can now control the game not only with the system's analogue sticks and buttons, but also directly with your fingers on the touch screen and rear touch panel. We've improved the zoom feature too, so it's more convenient to play the game in a portable capacity.

The graphics, music and sounds are presented at full quality, and everything runs smoothly and looks as beautiful as ever on Vita's gorgeous 5″ OLED display. For the best audio experience, put on some nice headphones so you can fully enjoy the award-winning soundtrack by Floex.

We've also integrated PSN...
 

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita: Marvel Arcade Pack is Coming Next Week

50°
79w ago - LittleBigPlanet Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has confirmed today that the LittleBigPlanet PS Vita Marvel Arcade Pack is coming next week.

Below are the details, as follows: For those of you eagerly salivating over new adventures for Sackboy on the PS Vita... well, you need drool no longer! We are delighted to announce a brand new game add-on for LittleBigPlanet PS Vita; the Marvel - Arcade Pack!

The Marvel - Arcade Pack contains three fantastic new games, each of which will challenge you in very different ways. In Hero Rush, you'll team up with three of your favourite Marvel heroes - such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, or Thor - and try to survive for as long as you can.

Shoot for high score heroics by avoiding plasma beams, rockets, and all sorts of obstacular trickery. Of course, obstacular isn't a real word, but you should never let a dictionary get in the way of your Marvel heroics!

In the mind-bending puzzler Avengers: Ultimate Escape guide several Marvel heroes, including Hulk, Captain America and many more, through a deadly maze. The cool thing about this game is that the challenges you face will be completely different depending on the hero you choose!

And last, but by no means least, we have S.H.I.E.L.D. - Interceptor! Take control of the Quinjet...

80w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King confirmed that Star Trek: The Next Generation warps to The Pinball Arcade today.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey everyone, Bobby King from FarSight Studios here. We just got back from Dallas and the Texas Pinball Festival.

It's a tremendously fun weekend that includes playing hundreds of classic and rare pinball machines to the latest tables from Stern Pinball, like The Avengers; and Jersey Jack's first table, Wizard of Oz (which looks and plays great and features the first LCD backbox display in pinball history).

Next weekend, we'll have a booth in Milwaukee at the Midwest Gaming Classic, so if you live in the area, stop by and check out the show. There will be everything from classic video game consoles and coin-op to tons of pinball.





In Dallas, we were lucky enough to get to spend some time with legendary pinball designer, Steve Ritchie. The "King of Flow" even took some time to check out our latest PS3 feature, stereoscopic 3D before heading back to Stern where we know he's working on his next pinball design destined to be a classic.

This week we'll be releasing one of his designs, Star Trek: The Next Generation. It's...
 

God of War: Ascension PS3 Q&A: Taking Kratos to the Next Level

50°
82w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared a God of War: Ascension PS3 Q & A update below today which takes Kratos to the next level.

To quote: With God of War: Ascension's launch just a few days away now, we sat down with the game's Lead Combat Designer Jason McDonald and Lead Game Designer Mark Simon to find out how they've kept the formula fresh six games into the series, and what challenges the addition of multiplayer presented to the team.

We'll have more insight from Game Director Todd Papy next week before Santa Monica's lean, mean new actioner hits the shelves on March 12th. In the meantime, over to Mark and Jason...

PlayStation.Blog: How difficult is it retro-fitting a prequel story onto the existing God of War trilogy?

Mark Simon: It's kinda nice actually. At the end of God of War 3 Kratos is completely rage-filled. His sole-focus has been figured out. With Ascension, we can go back to a different time period before he was this character.

He has a wider range and you can explain things about him that you didn't know before. You get to find out what turned him into the guy that he is - what makes him snap, and why is it that breaking a bond with a god like Ares does this.

PSB: If I was to plot Kratos' anger on a graph,...
