148w ago - SCEA's Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has shared some LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 updates today, including an official release date and retail goodness detailing a LBP2 Collector's Edition, as follows:
While we're entertaining the crowds at San Diego Comic Con this week with a peek at LBP2 and some free shirts. We have some great news...
Over at camp Media Molecule... LittleBigPlanet 2 has just passed "Alpha"! Yay! And while we still have a ton of work to do, we're that much closer to release and we're ready to announce some news you've all been waiting, so on behalf of our retail partners and our friends at Disney...here we go...
First things first..."When is LittleBigPlanet 2 coming out?" - You'll be pleased to know we're on schedule to have LBP2 out in stores on November 16th, just in time for the holidays. So whether you plan to be there on Day 1 or need to put it on your big holiday 'wishlist', rest assured, LBP2 will be here soon.
Next item on the list..."Will there be any pre-order items?" - We're glad you asked! YES, we have several exciting pre-order offers through several retail partners.
149w ago - Today Executive Producer Martin Brouard of Frima Studio has announced that Young Thor is heading to PSP Minis alongside a new official trailer video for the title.
To quote: Today we're showing off the final trailer for Young Thor, which will be launching next week for minis on PSP and PS3.
Our team has had a ton of fun creating titles for minis like Zombie Tycoon and the recent Widgets Odyssey, but Young Thor represents a completely new milestone in our efforts.
Built entirely for minis from the ground up to look great when played on either system, we wanted to deliver a truly epic action title that pushes the boundaries for what a minis title can become, and it's anything but tiny. Check out the official launch trailer below!
A fresh take on iconic Norse Mythology, the game has been inspired by some of the best action-platformers and beat-em up brawlers around.
You'll need to pummel your way through Midgard, the world of men, and Asgard, the world of the gods, with over a dozen different attacks and special powers if you should ever hope to save the world tree Yggdrasil.
While I don't want to spoil anything, we also have a mountain of 50 different in-game achievables to unlock throughout...
153w ago - Today Senior Producer Wes Yanagi of Sony Online Entertainment Austin has shared the world premier of the DC Universe Online Official PS3 E3 trailer!
To quote: All of us on the DCUO team are extremely excited to provide the PlayStation.Blog community with the world premier of the DC Universe Online official E3 trailer.
The team has been hard at work gearing up for E3, and as you'll see in this trailer composed entirely of actually game play footage. The moment you step into the world of DC Universe Online, you will experience high paced action and physics unlike anything ever seen before, and this trailer is just a taste of what lies ahead for you!
Our goal at Sony Online Entertainment in Austin is to combine a fast paced action combat experience that console gamers expect with a huge online world supporting thousands of players.
Our saying around the office is "Prove Thru Play," and we can't wait to get people in front of the game at E3 this week to take it for a test drive and experience for themselves exactly what we mean.
This trailer also shows the tremendous influence Jim Lee...
154w ago - ModNation Racers Audio Producer Andrew Bracken has announced today that the official soundtrack of the PS3 and PSP title is now available on Sony's PlayStation Network.
To quote: Getting the right music was tricky for ModNation Racers since it needed to not only feel like racing, but also to capture the creative spirit and unique visual style of the ModNation Racers universe.
Thankfully, United Front Games did a great job finding the right guys for the job.The end result is an upbeat mix of rock, hip-hop, and funk music composed by a handful of talented composers, including Peter Chapman, Marc Baril, and Melissa Reese, who are all featured on the soundtrack.
We are now happy to announce the release of the ModNation Racers soundtrack on PSN for only $7.99. The 16-track soundtrack, featuring 15 songs from the game as well as a bonus track, can also be found on iTunes.
Here are a few of my favorite tracks:
This bonus track is the official anthem for ModNation Racers and everybody who worked on the game is required to sing it to themselves once a day.
