129w ago - Konami Associate Brand Manager Pearl Lu has announced that Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone infests PSN today with details below.

To quote: I wanted to let you know that Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone will be available on PSN later today! Now for those of you who played the first Zombie Apocalypse (released in 2009) welcome back to Konami's take on the world of the undead.

For those of you who are new to this whole experience, I'm here to give you a few brief and yet thoroughly engrossing (emphasis on "gross") tips about a world that's near and dear to my heart.

At its core, the game is an overhead twin stick shooter which places a focus on more of a fast-paced arcade type feel. You'll deal with thousands of zombies throughout the game, all of which are trying their absolute hardest to eat your brain and steal your soul.

That's the bad news. Your job is to use every arsenal at your disposal to fend off the zombie wave and get the hell off this godforsaken Canadian island.

Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone was developed by our good friends at Backbone Entertainment. Believe me when I say, Backbone and I are proud of the work we've done on this little game so please do me a...

129w ago - Today PS3 News member ChronosAragami has suggested a quick and effective way to launch Rune Factory Ocean on PS3 3.55 Custom Firmware.

Those interested can simply do the following:

1. Grab JAP version dump of this game, we will use it as a base.
2. Replace "RFF2.bin" and "RFF2.dat" with US eqivalents
3. Replace japanese "Sounds" and Movies with US ones.
4. Enjoy game!

To quote: "Sorry my bad English, I am Brazilian hehe, I'll cut to the chase, I discovered that if you swap the files RFF2.bin RFF2.dat, from the American version to the Japanese version, the game going to be with the texts in English and Japanese audio.

That's it, just wanted to share with others who enjoy this game. Thank you for your attention.

Ops, the JAP audio its not working, if you want to hear the villagers voice, put all the Sounds from USA version in the JAP version."

PS: I do not have this game, whole instructions and all credits goes to ChronosAragami. Ask him for questions


 

Video: InFamous: Festival of Blood Now on PSN, PS Move Support

129w ago - Today Brian Fleming at Sucker Punch Productions has shared the launch trailer for InFamous: Festival of Blood which is now on PSN and includes PlayStation Move support!

To quote: It's been a long time since my last PlayStation.Blog post, and today's entry is a little....different. I'll start with the marketing facts (inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood available now!! $9.99!!

Only $7.99 if you are a PlayStation Plus member!!!) but really, I thought I'd give you a little insight into why and how we ended up making a vampire based spin-off of inFAMOUS.

For us, we'd been working for two projects and five-plus years on the main storyline of inFAMOUS. We wanted the DLC to be a chance to take all that art and technology and do something fun and different for players.

We knew we couldn't just release some more missions or a skin pack, so we took a bunch of pitches from all the departments here at the studio for what we might do. We wanted something that fit the world of inFAMOUS, would be fun to work on, and ideally would be unexpected, too.





One of the strong pitches we got was originally called "Vampire City" (a play on "Empire City" from inFAMOUS). The pitch was that Zeke was trying to impress a...
 

Video: Soulcalibur V PS3 Interview: Sharpening the Blade

129w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a Soulcalibur V PS3 interview and video today dubbed Sharpening the Blade below.

To quote: It's a tale of souls and swords, eternally retold. And on January 31st, 2012, that tale comes full circle on the PS3 with Soulcalibur V. Set 17 years after the events of Soulcalibur IV, Soulcalibur V is a return to the fast, furious feel that marked earlier entries in the series.

I was able to put a pre-release version of Soulcalibur V through its paces to get a feel for the new gameplay tweaks and refinements. After a few intense bouts, I noticed that Soulcalibur V moves at a slightly faster clip than SCIV, and that the Soul Gauge gem has evolved into a full-blown Edge meter that powers Brave Edge attack enhancers and the ultra-damaging Critical Edge finisher. I also spotted new defensive maneuvers, such as the Quick Step evasion and a Just Guard parry.

The fighter roster is getting a shakeup as well, with a core group of classic characters being supplemented by a large cast of mysterious new combatants (read more here), headlined by guest character Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed.

After going hands-on with the game, I discussed Soulcalibur V's gameplay evolution with "Filthy" Rich Bantegui, community manager for Namco...
