170w ago - PS3 Brand Manager Mark Bowles has posted up three new PlayStation Move videos today taken from the latest PS3 TV ads, as follows:
As PlayStation Move launches across Europe next week, I wanted to share some of the new TV ads we've created to support it and give a taster of what we have in store for Move.
The first 'Move into the action' ad shows you how PlayStation Move puts you smack bang into the middle of the game.
It shows off Move's amazing precision and highlights some of the new games designed to showcase the motion controller at its best, including Sports Champions and the forthcoming The Fight.
Most of you guys on the Blog will know all about Move and what it can do already, but there are a lot of people out there who aren't as up to speed on all things PlayStation. The other ad you'll be seeing on TV is the 'Move into the Party!' ad.
We have many social gamers out there who love competing with friends on a night in and Move brings loads of new ways to beat your mates while having a good laugh at the same time, with new games such as Start the Party and the soon to be released SingStar Dance.
175w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has announced today that Ys Seven Comes to Sony's PSP and PSPgo handheld consoles in August, 2010.
To quote: Ys Seven will be the first game released as part of the XSEED/Falcom partnership (aka the GREATEST TEAM-UP EVER), and is currently scheduled to ship on August 17th, 2010.
In North America, three versions of the game will be available: the UMD version ($29.99), the PSN download version (also $29.99), and of course, the fabulous limited edition box-set version ($49.99), which will include the game on UMD, a ludicrously gorgeous cloth map of Europe (the Ys series Europe, which is pronounced "eh-ROH-pay"), a one-disc "Ys Seven Musical Selections" CD, and a 60+ page art book containing various works from Ys Seven, Ys: The Oath in Felghana, and Ys I & II (as well as a brief cameo by some Ys VI characters).
Ys Seven will also be available in Europe, but only as a PSN download, and I'm afraid the price is yet to be determined. Sorry, European fans! (Europan fans?)
Now, the all-important question: Why should you buy the game?
Well, how about because it's AWESOME?!?! Seriously, if you've never played a Falcom game before, you're about to be blown away by this...
182w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has brought more goodies from E3 2010, this time the SOCOM 4 E3 Show Floor PS3 Demo which can be seen below!
To quote: By now, I'm sure you've read many reactions and impressions of the many, many games being shown at E3 2010. But how much of a taste to attendees actually get of these games?
Well, let's take a look at SOCOM 4. A couple of days before we jetted down to LA, producer Mark Rogers walked us through the S4 show floor demo, utilizing PlayStation Move (note: it was playable on the floor with DualShock 3 as well). Take a look:
That's a pretty nice taste, don't you think? For more on everything SOCOM 4, check out the SOCOM Blog.
187w ago - Today Associate Producer Randall Lowe from Sony's Santa Monica Studio has announced a contest for artists inspired by the PSN game Flower, as follows:
