50°
74w ago - Namco Bandia Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has unveiled the Unveils DualShock 4 Controller today which pushes the boundaries of play.

To quote: Hi Everyone! It's a special day at PlayStation, and I hope all of you had a chance to watch the livestream of PlayStation Meeting 2013 in New York, where we just unveiled PlayStation 4.

One of the most exciting components of our next-generation platform is DUALSHOCK 4, the new wireless controller that combines with PlayStation 4 to deliver new gameplay experiences that have never been possible before.

I'd like to give you a tour of DUALSHOCK 4 and the features that will provide game developers the freedom to create brand new experiences that previously were limited to their imaginations.

Design

DUALSHOCK 4 adopts the familiar form factor of the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller with some key enhancements:

Motion control is enabled by a new highly sensitive six-axis sensor
Dual analog sticks fine-tuned for better precision plus improved surface materials and shape for more delicate manipulation
L2/R2 buttons on the top of the controller employ a curved design for easier, smoother interaction

A new "Options" button combines the functions of the DUALSHOCK 3's "Select"...

Video: Dust 514 Dev Diary: Closer Look at Free-to-Play FPS' Vehicles

50°
86w ago - Vehicles Lead Designer Ryan Thornton shared a video today which takes a closer look at the Dust 514 free-to-play FPS' vehicles as part of their PS3 developer diary below.

To quote: Enter the EVE Universe, where intergalactic conflict among immortal spaceship pilots has spilled from the vast, empty expanse of space onto the surfaces of the planets themselves.

These ground conflicts are waged in the battle zones of DUST 514, where you, the boots on the ground, are empowered to take the war effort to a whole new level. As a mercenary in DUST 514, you are the frontline against other intrepid soldiers of fortune.

At your disposal you have a large arsenal of weaponry and a range of vehicle classes, from ground-based light attack vehicles and heavy attack vehicles, to imposing aerial-based dropships.

In this video, you'll see how vehicle classes provide a rock-solid foundation for exploring specialized roles. As your persona in DUST 514 progresses, you have the choice of unlocking advanced vehicle variants that fill unique roles on the battlefield.

Some of these include Logistical Dropships to provide a support presence on the battlefield, and Marauder HAVs, which are well-rounded armored units that pack a punch while maintaining a fair amount of damage protection.
 

Video: Sine Mora: Definitive Version on PS3 and PS Vita Today

50°
87w ago - Digital Reality Level Designer Ferenc Nagy-Szakall has invited fans to play Sine Mora: Definitive Version on PS3 and PS Vita today with a fresh trailer video below.

To quote: Sine Mora is launching on PS3 and PS Vita today, including some content that was cut from other versions of the game. Between a new challenge mode, the collaboration of a Japanese shoot'em up giant, and the special abilities of the PS Vita hardware, we truly think the wait for Sine Mora on PS3 and PS Vita was worth it - these versions are the richest we could possibly deliver.

From a technical perspective, the PS3 version was a walk in the park. Our technology has always been designed with the Cell processor in mind, enabling us to go for high framerates and image quality, uncompromised.

We're especially proud of how the PS Vita version turned out - neither the framerate nor the resolution was sacrificed, delivering the highest possible rendition of our original vision on a handheld.

Having exclusive levels is cool, but a brand new game mode is even better. We wanted to include something memorable – a game mode which is more difficult than other parts of the game on insane difficulty setting. A mode that is so tricky, even its creators couldn't master it on their first attempt. Nor the tenth....
 

Midway Arcade Origins: Play 31 Arcade Classics Today on PS3

200°
89w ago - Backbone Entertainment Producer Jeremy Mahler has announced that with Midway Arcade Origins fans can play 31 Arcade Classics starting today on PS3!

To quote: Today, Backbone is excited to give PS3 owners a chance to truly test their old-school arcade skills. For those of you who can actually remember having to put tokens or quarters into an actual Joust or Robotron machine, you may know this isn't the first Midway collection Backbone has developed.

But Midway Arcade Origins is the first of this generation, and it's definitely the best ever with 31 Midway arcade games assembled on one disc.

First off, we really wanted to make sure we paid proper homage to the collection's arcade roots, so right from the main menu we included a model of the original arcade cabinet and the marquee (arcade term for the light-up game logo) for each game. In terms of emulation quality, each game looks and plays exactly the same as its arcade counterpart.

In fact, the PS3's capabilities has made it possible for many of the games to feature true sound emulation for the first time on a console, resulting in a better sound response than in any previous collection.

In a further attempt to capture the arcade spirit, each game features its own unique wallpaper background based on the...
