Sony Goes Hands-On with The Last of Us for PlayStation 3

50°
84w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with The Last of Us for PlayStation 3.

To quote: I've finally played a chapter from Naughty Dog's eagerly awaited post-pandemic survival tale, and the first thing I want to say is this: The Last of Us is not a shooter. Well, not exactly.

Though Joel packs a pistol, you'll count yourself lucky to be holding more than 10 bullets at any one time. Most times you'll want to avoid fights by sneaking and hiding. In other, more desperate times you'll pull the trigger with a feeling of great reluctance - all the while praying that you don't miss.

The ultra-tight ammo supply imbues the game with a primal, high-stakes tension that brings uncertainty to every decision you make. One thing's for sure: this is one mess you won't be able to shoot your way out of.

"The Last of Us is not a shooter."

As I guided Joel's group around the dilapidated fringes of post-pandemic Boston, I saw constant reminders of Naughty Dog's legendary attention to detail.

Step under a trickle of water and Joel will raise his hand to keep his head dry; knock an enemy near a wall and Joel will pin him there to deliver a staggering punch. The environments also bristle with detail.

Peer through a derelict...
 

Video: Dust 514's Open Beta for PlayStation 3 Goes Live Today

200°
87w ago - CCP Games Creative Director and Praetorian Atli Mar Sveinsson has announced that Dust 514's open Beta for PlayStation 3 officially goes live today!

Below are the details, to quote: Pioneering PlayStation community! We've reached an exciting milestone in our development of DUST 514: the open beta. Some of you may already be familiar with the concept after having followed our dev blogs or news articles, or perhaps you have been helping us in the closed beta.

But some may be hearing about this for the first time. I would like to give you guys a quick overview on the game, and the new phase of development, the open beta.

What is DUST 514?

DUST is a PS3-exclusive triple-A free-to-play MMOFPS (massively multiplayer online first person shooter), directly set in and connected in real time with the science fiction universe of EVE Online.

What that means is that not only is DUST a full-fledged MMOFPS in its own right, with unrivaled persistence and customization, it also coexists on the same servers as its older PC sibling, EVE Online. DUST and EVE share several game systems such as mail, text and voice chat, corporations, the in-game market and more.

Not only are the players of the two games able to communicate with each other and belong to the...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Street Fighter X Tekken for PS Vita

100°
101w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with Street Fighter X Tekken for the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: I recently spent some hands-on time with a near-complete version of Street Fighter X Tekken for PS Vita, ahead of its October 23rd PSN and retail launch.

And I've gotta say, it's the spitting image of its PS3 bigger brother with big, bold characters and detailed backgrounds running at PS Vita's native screen resolution. But peer underneath those pretty graphics and you'll find a wealth of new extras that make this the definitive version of Capcom's crossover fighter.

The game comes equipped with every DLC fighter from the PS3 version - including PlayStation exclusives Cole McGrath, Kuro, Toro, Mega Man and Pac-Man, of course - as well as alternate costumes for every character in the base roster.

Another nice touch is the ability to customize your character's costume color, then share it with friends via PS Vita's integrated geo-social app "near." It's also worth noting that any DLC costumes or Gems you purchased for the PS3 version will port over to the PS Vita version at no extra cost.

PS Vita's front touchscreen is leveraged in several ways, most notably to create virtual buttons on the screen that you can reposition, resize,...
 

Video: Until Dawn PS3 Q&A: Teen Horror Goes SuperMassive

50°
103w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has posted up a video and Q&A today on the Until Dawn PS3 teen horror game from SuperMassive below.

To quote: Last month's debut of PlayStation Move-based horror game Until Dawn generated enough intrigue to propel the game onto at least one news site's best of gamescom list.

And after watching a 30-minute gameplay demonstration of this cheeky horror game at gamescom, it wasn't hard to see why.

The game oozes confidence and style: its immersive use of the PlayStation Move motion controller (from flipping levers to tugging zippers), rapid-fire banter, and unabashed reliance on genre tropes all point to a game that's determined to push horror gaming into uncharted territory.

It's important to note that Until Dawn is firmly a teen horror game, trading in the healing herbs and bullet counting of the survival-horror genre for quips, jump scares, and salacious scenarios that wouldn't seem out of place in Friday the 13th or I Know What You Did Last Summer.

After Until Dawn's gamescom debut, I had a chance to speak with [Register or Login to view links]'s executive creative director Will Byles, who discussed the game's genesis, HUD-free presentation,...
