121w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a video interview today discussing how the upcoming WipEout 2048 game brings fans the birth of anti-gravity racing to PS Vita.
To quote: The WipEout series is synonymous with PlayStation hardware launches and so there's a warm feeling of familiarity to knowing that WipEout 2048 is coming to PlayStation Vita during the launch window.
The game focuses on the birth of Anti-grav racing and the Liverpool Studio team is keen to focus on how the architecture of the futuristic city shapes both look and gameplay. I caught up with Graeme Ankers and Stuart Tilley out in the sunshine between presentations.
It's fantastic to see a new WipEout game on its way, particularly one that is looking to take the series in a new direction. We already know that it will support cross platform play allowing Vita and PS3 players to go head-to-head online and I've just learned that the soundtrack - a vital ingredient in the WipEout DNA - features new remixes of Underworld and Leftfield tracks from the original game, as well as a new track from Deadmau5. Can't wait!
121w ago - Insomniac Games Community Intern Brandon Winfrey shared a Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One PS3 update today complete with a new trailer video from Gamescom 2011.
To quote: Fun fact of the day: Trailers used to be shown at the end of a movie. Hence the name trailer. Because it trailed the mov- you know what, you probably got it.
Eventually, the marketing people woke up and realized that no one sticks around after a film, so they moved it to the beginning.
However, the name "trailer" stuck. Probably because the name "beginnier" is lamer than my 17th birthday (it involved a gluten-free cake and a Pauly Shore marathon - you do the math).
Nowadays, marketing people have gotten even savvier. You can watch a trailer - on the internet! Now you don't have to drain your 401k watching Jason Statham punch various objects and/or people just to get a glimpse at the trailer for whatever beacon of enjoyable entertainment that's on the horizon.
For instance, just by pressing that little triangle directly north of this text - you can see a new trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. In it, you'll get a taste of all the mischievous co-op action that awaits you in our latest entry in this esteemed franchise. You can play nice...
