CCP Outlines War and Profit in DUST 514 for PlayStation 3

71w ago - CCP's Eino Joas has outlined war and profit in DUST 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system today.

Below are the details, to quote: The mercenary life is grand, but how do you put the "profit" into intergalactic warfare for fun and profit?

I mean, we all love to see new places (and blow them up) and meet new people (and blow them up), but you're not just doing this for your health. So let's talk about how DUST 514 rewards your effort.

There are three things you can come away with from a battle: money, skill points, and salvage, and here's how you get them:

Money

ISK is the primary currency in the EVE Universe and a necessity for fighting wars. You will earn ISK from each battle you fight. The size of the reward depends on your contribution and the cost of the battle. Those who contribute more are rewarded handsomely, but all mercs are guaranteed a solid income.

A portion of the reward pool for each battle depends on the value of items destroyed in the battle. If the battle saw countless vehicles and expensive prototype gear destroyed, everyone is in for bigger rewards. ISK rewards are calculated as follows for each participant:

Base rewards: Every mercenary receives basic compensation for each battle they fight....
 

Video: Zen Studios' Marvel Pinball: Civil War in Action on PS3

74w ago - Marvel Studios Manager Chris Baker of Licensed Games has shared a video today showcasing Zen Studios' Marvel Pinball: Civil War in action on the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: For well over two years now, I've had the honor of working with Zen Studios on video pinball tables based on Marvel characters and events. It seems only appropriate that Marvel Pinball: Civil War should release the week of Thanksgiving (as part of PSN's Zen Pinball 2) - 'cause I'm plenty thankful for these guys and everything they've done with Marvel Pinball so far.

Civil War is one of the biggest events ever told in comics, and as you'd suspect, Zen takes representing it in pinball form very seriously. Here are a just a few reasons why you, the fan, will be thankful that's the case...

Whose Side Are You On? No, really... When Zen and Marvel decide what tables to do, it's a truly collaborative process. Sometimes they're Zen's idea initially, sometimes they're ours - it's Avengers-level teamwork, I tell ya!

The idea to do a Civil War table came from us, and with it a mandate: If you choose to do Civil War, you have to let the player decide if he's with Iron Man and Pro-Registration or with Captain America in opposition to the Superhuman Registration Act.

"Whose Side Are You On?"...

78w ago - Sony Game Director Todd Papy has shared a fresh God of War: Ascension PS3 trailer and early PlayStatio 3 Beta access details today!

To quote: It's been a little over a month now since we announced the God of War: Ascension Beta and we know you've been anxiously awaiting news on when you're going to get a chance to slash, disembowel, and crush your way into the pantheon of Olympus...

The God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta is coming to PlayStation Plus this winter. Keep reading to find out the only other way to get in, and how to get in early.

Some of our fans have already had the chance to play the Desert level of our new multiplayer mode at E3, Gamescom, and PAX. However, the multiplayer action has come a long way since then and this winter, Plus subscribers get to go hands-on with all-new multiplayer action that we haven't yet shown.

If you've been following the Ascension news thus far, you know that in God of War Multiplayer, each warrior will align themselves with one of four Gods. Each God will grant a different set of unlockable powers, armor sets, and abilities, which leads to a unique style of play for each God "class."

The first God you'll be able to align with in the Beta will be the almighty Zeus, so to help you get ready, we have a new trailer...
