Valve Software Interviewed, Answers All Portal 2 PS3 Questions

300°
157w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an interview with Valve Software today, who answered nearly every Portal 2 PS3 question on the minds of fans!

To quote: Valve Software has repeatedly described Portal 2 for the PS3 as being "the best console version of the game."

And for good reason, given that you'll get a free PC or Mac version of Portal 2 along with your PS3 copy, as well as exclusive cross-platform PS3-to-PC co-op gameplay and voice chat, Steamworks features and much more. Good stuff!

Not long ago, we asked you to submit your very best PS3 Portal 2 questions. We wanted every nerdy, detail-obsessed question possible and, as we've come to learn, PS3 fans never disappoint.

Last week, we finally cornered Portal 2's Project Lead Joshua Weier and Writer Erik Wolpaw in a bare concrete room under harsh florescent lighting.

We slapped a thick stack of your questions on the table, cracked our knuckles, and extracted the answers via a combination of brow beating, idle threats, and good old-fashioned seduction.

Actually, we just called them on the phone and goofed off for an hour or so. It went something like this:

350°
157w ago - Today SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a new Street Fighter x Tekken gameplay trailer and details.

To quote: At Captivate last week, Capcom unveiled the first batch of playable characters in Street Fighter X Tekken: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile and Abel from Street Fighter and Kazuya, Nina Williams, King, Marduk and Bob from Tekken.

Afterwords, Producer Yoshinori Ono spoke how Street Fighter X Tekken came to be.

In his words... When we [Capcom] took that 10 year break between releasing Street Fighter games, I feel that Tekken diligently stoked the fighting game campfire and kept people interested. With Street Fighter IV we tossed kerosene on that fire and got fans really excited about fighting games again.

I was having dinner with the Tekken director [Katsuhiro] Harada-san shortly after Street Fighter IV came out and we got talking about how we could keep that campfire burning. We were half-joking when we first conceived this collaboration, but it did seem like a great idea to both of us and pretty soon we were both saying, 'you go back to your office and I'll go back to mine... let's synchronise watches and convince everyone that we...

157w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has posted a new Resistance 3 PS3 video today exploring the Dark Woods of Pennsylvania.

To quote: The Burbank-based Resistance 3 team was is hand to present a new single-player area, multiplayer map, and weapon.

Our new single-player area finds hero Joseph Capelli and Dr. Malikov in the dark woods of Pennsylvania, hunted by Chimeran snipers and dropships.

In this section of the game, players must sneak through the forest, avoiding the spotlights of the dropships while dispatching the sniper hybrids.

They also run into Hybrids that are shielded by drones - requiring Capelli to destroy the drones first before attacking the Hybrids.

A big emphasis in Resistance 3 is opening up the gameplay spaces, allowing players to not only choose which weapon to use for each situation via the weapon wheel, but also how to approach each situation while using the environment to their advantage.
