The Expendables 2: The Videogame Arrives on PSN Play Today

50°
90w ago - Ubisoft Producer Adam Sarasohn has confirmed for fans that The Expendables 2: The Videogame will be blowing the top off PSN Play beginning today.

To quote: The Expendables 2: The Videogame will be kicking off the PSN PLAY program today, giving PlayStation gamers the first chance to play this explosive shooter.

Following the critically acclaimed action movie series by Lionsgate and Millennium Films, The Expendables 2: The Videogame put gamers in control of four of the world's top mercenaries - Barney Ross, Hale Caesar, Gunner Jensen and Yin Yang - as they embark on a rescue mission for a kidnapped billionaire.

Each mercenary will have a distinct play style giving you the choice to tackle enemies up-close or from afar. Here's a quick breakdown of each of the characters weapons and abilities:

Barney Ross: As the leader of the Expendables, Barney is a solid all-around character with no particular weaknesses. His dual pistols or Colt revolver make short work of weaker enemies, while a well-timed grenade toss can take out turrets, tanks, and whatever else the game throws your way. And if someone gets a little too close, Barney's brass knuckles will send them flying back where they came from.

Hale Caesar: Hale is your explosives expert. His weapons are...

100°
100w ago - Following up on their previous developer diary, today Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has shared a new video spotlighting PS3-to-PS Vita Cross-platform play in upcoming title Foosball 2012.

To quote: I'm back to share more details about Foosball 2012! Specifically, to introduce the cross-platform functionalities between PS3 and PS Vita.

We didn't want to have a game that has a version for PS3 and a separate version for PS Vita. We wanted an experience where you don't need to worry about which device you are currently using, because you get exactly the same game - including your current progress, unlocks, and DLC - every time you play, regardless of whether you are currently on PS3 or PS Vita.

First of all, when you buy Foosball 2012, you'll get it for both the PS3 and PS Vita for a price of a single PSN game. The same applies for additional content that you will be able to buy. Purchase the game once and you can use it on both the PS3 and PS Vita.

Secondly, when you play the game, your saves are automatically uploaded to a cloud storage within PSN and synchronized between PS3 and PS Vita. Whenever you start the game, the progress you made on any platform,...
 

Sony Unveils PulzAR: PS Vita's Next AR Play Blasts Off Next Month

50°
100w ago - Sony Assistant Producer Shaun Wharton has unveiled the next AR Play video game title for PS Vita called PulzAR, which blasts off next month with full details below!

To quote: We are excited to announce a captivating new addition to the Augmented Reality (AR) Play line-up next month with the release of PulzAR.

PulzAR is a mind boggling, potentially Earth-shattering puzzle game that turns nearly any flat surface into an epic battle against time and a looming celestial event with the use of your AR Play cards.

You see, in PulzAR, the Earth is in grave danger. Somewhere just beyond our planet's outer atmosphere, a series of colossal asteroids are spinning ever closer on a deadly collision course to wipe out humankind.

So far, all attempts to divert their trajectory have failed. Now, in mankind's desperate last stand against certain catastrophe, it's up to you to command a network of explosive rockets and try to blast the asteroids into a harmless meteor shower before they reach Earth.

Using precision laser technology, you have only a limited time to program the guidance system using a series of reflectors, splitters, and filters that activate the nodes that will launch the rockets towards their targets.

Once launched, you are able to follow the rocket,...
