Video: CCP Introduces DUST 514, a Persistent Shooter for PS3

163w ago - DUST 514 Community Manager James Egan of CCP has shared an E3 2011 video today introducing a persistent shooter for PS3 called DUST 514.

To quote: I'm the Community Manager for [Register or Login to view links], an upcoming title from [Register or Login to view links]. This is the first time you'll have seen DUST 514 highlighted on the PlayStation.Blog and we're happy that we can reveal more about our game to you.

DUST 514 is a very different type of game. Yes, many people say this about their respective game titles – everyone thinks their baby is special, right? We really mean it though.

When playing your FPS title of choice, have you ever wished that there was something more to it beyond your rank, weapon unlocks, your kill/death ratio and leaderboard prominence? Those things are all great - but what if those matches you fought in actually meant something?

What if your successes and failures against your opponents impacted the course of events in a vast setting, potentially changed a virtual world and the gameplay experience of thousands of other players? More than that, what if that impact was felt across two separate games - one on PS3 and one on PC/Mac - that share the same sci-fi universe?

164w ago - Today Eat Sleep Play Co-Founder David Jaffe has posted up some E3 2011 videos of Iron Maiden and NYC Chaos in Twisted Metal on PS3.

To quote: Totally jazzed about the new gameplay we'll be showing at this week's [Register or Login to view links]!

We're giving the press their first ever detailed look at Iron Maiden, the biggest and most complicated boss we've ever had in a Twisted Metal game! She's from the game's campaign mode (single player and local/online co-op supported) and she's a total blast to battle!

We're also giving show goers some hands on with Twisted Metal's signature Nuke mode, our Twisted take on Capture The Flag. E3′s Nuke demo takes place in a brand new level: NEW YORK CITY DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON! The level is classic Twisted Metal, allowing players to bring destruction and chaos to a relatable location!

This isn't a fight on a space station or in some foreign war. This is hell in your own backyard! Destroy skyscrapers! Bring down The Statue of Liberty, then play soccer with her head! Battle inside toy stores! Race under the streets of the city, fighting and chasing on underground subway tracks as you try to avoid being smashed by the deadly trains!

Plow into the history museum and smash giant dinosaur bones,...
