130w ago - Update: This rumor is now confirmed as true via [Register or Login to view links] who state that PlayStation Vita version 1.8 Firmware will add PS Classics support.

To quote: "We still don't have a precise start date for PS Classics support on PlayStation Vita. But we do have something a bit more specific - a firmware version number.

Sony said today that PS Classics support will be added to Vita via the system's version 1.8 firmware update. As previously announced, this firmware update will be available some time during the Summer.

The version 1.8 firmware update was mentioned during Sony's announcement of the PlayStation 2 Game Archives service for PlayStation 3."

Today ryukyu22 has discovered PS1 Classic game Buzz Lightyear of Star Command on the PS Vita European PlayStation Store which sparked debate as to whether Sony is adding PSOne emulation support to the new handheld console.

The video game has since been removed, and below is what he said to say to quote:

"Sorry for the bad title i just didn't want to get people's hopes up as the game is not working at the moment. However, i would like to show what i did achieve.

Video: Dishonored Preview: Cloak and Dagger for PlayStation 3

50°
130w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a Cloak and Dagger video preview today of the upcoming PlayStation 3 title Dishonored for fans below.

To quote: Some games have problems with bugs, but this game has trouble with rats. Big, evil ones that prowl in packs and can rend a man's flesh from his screaming bones.

But killer rats are the least of your worries in the dark world of Dishonored, an imaginative action-adventure from Arkane Studios and Bethesda coming to PS3 later this year.

The game nimbly blends inspirations from a pantheon of modern classics: The oppressive atmosphere and paranoid politicking of BioShock, the graceful bloodletting of Assassin's Creed, the murky morality of Deus Ex, the stealth and shadow of Thief.

This is a game about skulking in dark places, eavesdropping on secret conversations, setting up the perfect ambush and beating a hasty retreat.

You play as Corvo, an elite royal bodyguard wrongly accused of assassinating the Empress of Dunwall. Locked in a prison and left to rot, you're sprung by a shadowy benefactor and set loose to claim your revenge in whatever manner you see fit.





Though Corvo is a convincing protagonist the...
 

CCP Reveals How Dynamic Battlefields Take Shape in Dust 514

50°
130w ago - Today CCP Community Manager CmdrWang has revealed how dynamic battlefields take shape in Dust 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: In traditional or mainstream FPS games, the mission area, i.e. the layout of objectives, structures, and spawn locations, are fairly static, thus making missions predictable after playing them a few times.

This is not the case in DUST 514. Because of its sandbox nature, we want to give players the freedom to change the battlefield through choices and this is where the "dynamic" part of the battlefields will come from.

This means that battlefields in DUST 514 could change based on the actions that players make - from innocuous actions such as changing one's character fitting before a deployment, all the way up to decisions made light years away in a player owned corporate board room.

However, giving players a big sandbox to play in does not simply mean throwing a bunch of random choices at them and say, "go." For players to experience the uniquely emergent gameplay offered by the EVE Online universe, the freedom that these choices offer must be handled in a meaningful manner.

To illustrate this, we will be looking at how battlefields in [Register or Login to view links] are...
 

Sony Announces Ghostlight to Release Fate / Extra for PSP

100°
130w ago - Today Community Manager Ross Brierley at Ghostlight has announced that they will be releasing Fate / Extra for Sony's PlayStation Portable handheld video game console with details below.

To quote: Today I'm here to talk to you about Ghostlight's latest JRPG release, Fate/EXTRA.

Developed by Imagepooch and TYPE-MOON, Fate/EXTRA is an epic PSP title set in a parallel universe to that of the hugely popular Japanese visual novel Fate/Stay Night.

At first glance, Fate/EXTRA appears to be set inside a Japanese high school. However, it soon becomes clear that something far stranger is at work, as the school itself is in fact an elaborate computer simulation designed as a battleground in the fight for the Holy Grail, a powerful artefact which will grant the victor's desire.

The students themselves are either mages seeking the grail, or merely NPCs created to ensure the smooth running of the tournament.

Summoning legendary heroes from the depths of the past (called 'Servants') to battle alongside them, the mages must battle each other to be the one to claim the Grail. But the stakes are high and only death awaits those who fall in battle.

Fate/EXTRA also features a truly original battle system, which, despite being simple to learn, has real depth...
