105w ago - Nihilistic Software Designer D. Reed Monroe has revealed today on Sony's blog details on the Resistance: Burning Skies multiplayer game mode for the PS Vita console alongside a video below.

To quote: We at Nihilistic Software are excited to finally be able to pull the wraps off Multiplayer for Resistance: Burning Skies, coming May 29th for PlayStation Vita!

In addition to its all-new single player campaign, Burning Skies features an online (via Wi-Fi) multiplayer in which you and up to seven of your friends can compete over PlayStation Network!

We know you've all been asking about multiplayer in Burning Skies, so please enjoy the first look at it in this new trailer!

When designing Resistance: Burning Skies, our goal was to bring a high-quality console experience to a handheld, and thanks to the power of the Vita, we've ended up with an unprecedented mobile FPS. Experience the dual analog sticks for precision aiming, touch screen interactivity for precise and quick secondary weapon fires, and portable online connectivity.





We've just showcased that game at an event in NYC, showing off some of the cool things we're doing with online:

110w ago - Sony Latin America Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales has revealed a new PixelJunk 4am demonstration video today straight from the 2012 Game Developers Conference.

To quote: From the moment we got our first glimpse of PixelJunk 4am, we knew it was like nothing we'd ever seen before. Q-Games always strives to deliver distinctive games with one-of-a-kind experiences.

With PixelJunk 4am, they chose to bring this concept to a whole new level. Watch the video to see a live performance and learn more about how the game works.

But what exactly is PixelJunk 4am? A game? An instrument? To answer this question, we turned to Rowan Parker, who explained it from the floor of a launch party held during the 2012 Game Developers Conference where DJ Baiyon "played" for the lucky attendees.





PixelJunk 4am is easy to understand once you have the PlayStation Move motion controller in your hands and the visualizer appears. It varies with each "presentation," but you can change it at any time by pressing the Select button. What's important is for the music to "live" in the air, so to speak.

With PS Move, you grab hold of the sound from four different instruments (represented by the four control buttons) and unleash...
 

CCP Reveals The Future of War: Building DUST 514's PS3 Arsenal

113w ago - Today CCP Community Manager CmdrWang has revealed the future of war - building DUST 514's PS3 arsenal below!

To quote: In this post, I wanted to pick a few weapons that changed the way that the development team played when we added them to the game.

Gamers don't always realize how long it can take for a weapon to make the leap from the drawing board to being fully functional and kicking ass in the game. It needs to be concepted, built, textured, animated, weapon logic needs to be engineered, sounds created, various values set up, tested, debugged, and tweaked.

As you can imagine, all this takes quite a while, which means you spend a lot of time playing your game with a limited set of gear. Over time, we add new weapons to the game and they can radically alter the balance of play because they open up new possibilities in combat. Below are some examples.

Heavy Weapons for Heavy Armor...

Let's start with the Minmatar MH82-BCR Personal Autocannon. This is a heavy weapon and, as such, restricted to the heavy dropsuit. As well as being simply devastating in its own right, this weapon really opened up the heavy dropsuit class once we added it to the game.

For some time, the heavy dropsuit wasn't very popular with our internal dev team. It may have...
