158w 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.





After our Community Day in Hollywood a couple of weeks ago, many of you who couldn€t make it asked €when can I see the Boat level you showed?€ Today is that day.

158w ago - Valve VP of Marketing Doug Lombardi has revealed Portal 2 for PlayStation 3 Steam details today for fans, as follows:

A few months back, Valve announced some initial details of Steam€s debut in the PS3 version of Portal 2.

While people were excited to hear about the PS3 game€s inclusion of Steam access to Portal 2 on any PC or Mac, they also had a bunch of questions.

So, here€s a bit more info about Steam on the PS3.

Portal 2 for PlayStation 3 is the first title to support Steam on a console. Specifically, that means it offers cross-platform matchmaking, gameplay, friends, chat, and achievements, all powered by Steam.

Steam on the PS3 also saves co-op game progress and single player saved games to the Steam Cloud, enabling players to pick up where they left off on any PlayStation 3.

Steam makes its appearance on the PS3 as an overlay within Portal 2. Here, the Steam overlay provides access to Steam Friends, displaying their in-game or online status and providing a quick pathway to text chats, player profiles, friend requests, and game invites. Steam Achievements are earned in lockstep with PSN Trophies and are also accessible within the...

To quote: Yesterday in Los Angeles, we presented a new demo of Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One to an audience of US and European journalists.

While we presented some new levels and weapons/gadgets, we also wanted to show once again that All 4 One is a sprawling new Ratchet & Clank adventure, with a full story, big arsenal, and tons of co-op mayhem. Further, in All 4 One, we like to say there€s an €I€ in team: work together, but reward yourself.

You all have to help each other out, but at the same time, the winner will earn the best rewards and get the first chance to buy the newest weapons in the game.

We illustrated this in a new level of the game, set in the Terawatt Forest on Planet Magnus. It€s the home of a scientist named Dr. Croid €" who holds the key to the mystery of the Creature Collector.





The plants and animals here are mutated thanks to the presence of a strange meteor €" and players will also have to look out for Dr. Croid€s giant Guardian robots that patrol the area (which you€ll see in the...
