200°
122w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has announced today that Foosball 2012 will be hitting both PS3 and PS Vita, and will include PS Move and Cross Play support!

To quote: Hi everybody! This is Jakub from Grip Games, the folks who brought you The Impossible Game, MiniSquadron and One Epic Game. We are back to present you our newest creation - Foosball 2012 for PS3 and PS Vita.

As you have probably guessed - it is a table football ("foosball") game. The very first one for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, so we made sure that we packed it up with lots of features and game modes, like various kinds of tables (American style, European style), customizations, ball types and trick shots to keep you entertained and experimenting for hours.

The World Tour single-player mode will let you travel across the globe and challenge AI opponents in nearly 30 locations. More social players can look forward to a local multiplayer for up to four and online multiplayer, where you can match against the rest of the world and rank up to become the table football champion.





PlayStation Move is also supported on PS3. If you own this magic wand, you can control Foosball 2012 exactly like you would control a real table football, with 1:1 movement...

Video: InFamous: Festival of Blood Now on PSN, PS Move Support

50°
143w ago - Today Brian Fleming at Sucker Punch Productions has shared the launch trailer for InFamous: Festival of Blood which is now on PSN and includes PlayStation Move support!

To quote: It's been a long time since my last PlayStation.Blog post, and today's entry is a little....different. I'll start with the marketing facts (inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood available now!! $9.99!!

Only $7.99 if you are a PlayStation Plus member!!!) but really, I thought I'd give you a little insight into why and how we ended up making a vampire based spin-off of inFAMOUS.

For us, we'd been working for two projects and five-plus years on the main storyline of inFAMOUS. We wanted the DLC to be a chance to take all that art and technology and do something fun and different for players.

We knew we couldn't just release some more missions or a skin pack, so we took a bunch of pitches from all the departments here at the studio for what we might do. We wanted something that fit the world of inFAMOUS, would be fun to work on, and ideally would be unexpected, too.





One of the strong pitches we got was originally called "Vampire City" (a play on "Empire City" from inFAMOUS). The pitch was that Zeke was trying to impress a...

146w ago - According to Engadget.com (linked above), the PS3 will support Sony's VPL-VW1000ES 4K Projector stills following a future PlayStation 3 Firmware update, however, moving pictures will still remain out of reach for the time being.

To quote: Once you've cleared the $25k or so in your budget that it will take to snag one of [Register or Login to view links] your next problem will be finding some 4096x2160 res content to view on it.

While showing off the new beamer for its Japanese audience at CEATEC today, Sony announced the PS3 will get a firmware update around the beginning of 2012 that will allow it to natively output 4K stills.

There's a PlayView "visual magazine" already available on the PlayStation store in Japan that supports 4K and 3D, but this update will bring super high res viewing of your vacation pics, or any other high res image files you can snag, to the living room.

While your friends will no doubt be impressed by the museum-quality art gala you're now capable of hosting, we're starting the timer for 4K video sources - if we don't hear anything concrete at CES then we'll...
