4w ago - Today Ryan Avery at Deep Silver announced Sacred 3 is coming to PS3 on August 26th, 2014 alongside a new PlayStation 3 trailer below.

To quote: Sacred 2 transported PS3 gamers to the fantasy realm of Ancaria for dozens, or sometimes hundreds, of hours when it was released back in 2009.

A few years have passed in our world, but for the lands of Ancaria it has been ages! History has turned to legend, old landmarks turned to ruin, and a new evil in the form of the Ashen Empire has shattered the peace that once was. It is a new era, and a time for new heroes to rise up and fight together.

Today, we're happy to finally show you a glimpse of the next chapter in the world of Ancaria: Sacred 3.





Sacred 3, the newest installment in the saga, is an action-packed Hack 'n' Slash game focused on co-op gameplay. You and a friend can choose any hero and use unique skills and co-op combat arts to defeat hordes of enemies and take on epic boss encounters.

The game supports seamless drop-in/drop-out multiplayer for two players to fight in co-op offline, and up to four players online over PlayStation Network. But be careful, your partner also is your biggest rival for the ultimate goal; to become the greatest...

4w ago - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer user updated PSNope to version 1.06 (Test) with the changes outlined below.

Download: psnope106test.rar

To quote: here were some requests for an update so here you are. Sony added some checks to syscall 870 in fw 4.55, but this update should make psnope pass these checks removing cfw calls should work again.

New Test Features:

  • Output content from the community log files (enable the debug_log option if you're running cex fw)
  • Cleanup community log files based on blacklisting. no idea if its useful or not...

No cobra fw support (and no plans to add support it in the future)

Anyway, i'm not really interested in updating PSNope anymore and if you want to play online with cfw i recommend to:

  • restore ofw syscall table
  • clean up all history and log files
  • restore ofw explore_plugin.sprx, nas_plugin.sprx and explore_category_game.sprx

There is no tool which supports all of these atm. oh, and don't spoof anything. PSN can check in theory...
 

Sony Introduces Project Morpheus: Virtual Reality (VR) System for PS4

4w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios President Shu Yoshida officially introduced Project Morpheus ($249-299 targeted price), a Virtual Reality (VR) System for PS4 today at the Game Developer Conference (GDC) 2014 with details below!

To quote: Greetings from GDC 2014! Earlier this evening, I had the pleasure to introduce Project Morpheus, SCE's prototype virtual reality (VR) system that works with PS4. Virtual reality is the next innovation from SCE that we believe will shape the future of games.

I have long dreamed about VR and the possibilities it brings in regards to game development. This new technology will deliver a sense of presence, where you as the player actually feel like you're inside the game and your emotions feel that much more real.

Our current prototype for Project Morpheus features a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view. Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head mounted unit as well as PlayStation Camera accurately tracks head orientation and movement, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates intuitively in real-time.

Project Morpheus also features our new 3D audio technology that re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending...
 

Luftrausers Launches Today on PS3 and PlayStation Vita Platforms

4w ago - Vlambeer's Rami Ismail announced that Luftrausers launches today on PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: We started Luftrausers halfway through 2011, when Jan Willem at Vlambeer was staring out of a window on a late flight from San Francisco to Amsterdam after the annual Game Developers Conference. He decided he wanted to expand on a little prototype we made back in 2010.

The pitch Jan Willem had for me was simple: the prototype had been made in two days, but had been played by hundreds of thousands of people. Jan Willem felt we might've run into something special with the simple high score game we had released for free to the internet. We started working on the very first version of our little 2D dogfighting game in just four colors.





We made a deal not to play the original until the new version was as good as we remembered the original to be, and we were surprised at how much of a struggle that was.

We added bigger explosions, we worked on a dynamic camera system, we added trails of smoke on crashing jets, and we even added extra colors to the palette. It still took us almost a month to achieve the same level of speed, of chaos, and of impact that the far simpler...
 

Video: The Superhuman Sound of InFamous Second Son on PS4

4w ago - Sucker Punch Productions Audio Director Brad Meyer shared a video today showcasing the superhuman sound of InFamous Second Son on PS4 below.

To quote: Hey everyone! I'm the audio director at Sucker Punch, and I'm excited to show off some of the fun and painstaking attention to detail we took with the sound design of inFAMOUS Second Son.

We knew we had to up our game on all sonic fronts because we were launching on PS4, so we started early by identifying the key areas we wanted to focus on.

Obviously the powers were going to be the most important aspect, so we began conceiving ideas before there was even visual concept art. We created a language for each power set which we used as a palette to craft the design of each set. With smoke, it was charcoal, air, and extinguishing flames. For neon we strapped a contact mic on our Sly Cooper neon sign and also recorded fluorescent tubes, electromagnetic interference, and a very long induction coil.





Another area we knew needed to come alive was the ambience. Since our game takes place in Seattle, what better way to capture the bustling city than running around with microphones, capturing the subtle nuances from birds, sirens, and car alarms, to rain and traffic?...
