131w ago - Sony's VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has officially introduced the PlayStation Vita (NGP) at E3 2011, and confirmed retail pricing for PSVita starts at $249.
To quote: Just moments ago during our 2011 E3 press conference we proudly unveiled an incredible 2011 software lineup and amazing new PS3 peripherals, and also shed new light on our highly anticipated handheld gaming device, officially named PlayStation Vita (PS Vita).
"Vita," which means "Life" in Latin, was chosen as the name for our next-generation portable entertainment system because it enables a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context.
By blurring the lines between interactive entertainment and reality, our goal was to design a device that offered a revolutionary combination of rich gaming capabilities and social connectivity, bringing users closer to each other and closer to their gaming experiences wherever they are.
Connectivity was a key objective and our goal was to create experiences and content that would challenge the traditional notions of gaming....
131w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has unveiled a fresh Resistance 3 E3 2011 PS3 trailer today alongside Doomsday Edition details.
To quote: We hope you just had a chance to watch the PlayStation E3 2011 Press Conference that just wrapped up at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena! We were extremely excited to be a part of the show with our live gameplay demo of Resistance 3.
You may have also heard about that announcement of the Doomsday Edition of Resistance 3 - containing the game, the PlayStation Move motion controller, the navigation controller, the PlayStation Eye camera, and the sharp shooter - everything you need to have the complete sharp shooter Resistance 3 experience at home on September 6th.
If you missed the conference, our stage demo took place in the streets of St. Louis circa 1957. We catch up with Joseph Capelli as he works with a group of young rebels waging a guerilla war against the Chimera.
This group calls themselves The Remnants, and Capelli joins forces with them to stage a daring ambush on a Chimeran dropship, hoping to acquire its valuable power core. Things go bad quickly, and we jump forward in the interest of time to show you what happens when a third participant, a...
131w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has unveiled a new Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception PS3 E3 2011 preview video tonight!
To quote: All of Naughty Dog has been looking forward to tonight ever since we announced Uncharted 3 with Entertainment Weekly and showed it for the first time at the SPIKE VGA show back in December.
And just a few minutes ago, if you were watching the SCEA Press Conference on any of the live streams, you go to see what we've been working so hard to be able to show you!
At the SCEA Press Conference, our Co-Presidents, Evan and Christophe, took the stage and with just a short intro, launched into the first live demo of Uncharted 3 ever shown publicly.
The brief Cruise Ship sequence shows just a small slice of one of the most challenging scenarios we've concocted for any of the Uncharted games - as a massive, moving environment of the Cruise Ship gets turned on its side mid-battle, Drake has to scramble for his life. This sequence showcases the next level of our physics and water technology - and you'll see video of this sequence later this week.
131w ago - DUST 514 Community Manager James Egan of CCP has shared an E3 2011 video today introducing a persistent shooter for PS3 called DUST 514.
To quote: I'm the Community Manager for DUST 514, an upcoming title from CCP. This is the first time you'll have seen DUST 514 highlighted on the PlayStation.Blog and we're happy that we can reveal more about our game to you.
DUST 514 is a very different type of game. Yes, many people say this about their respective game titles – everyone thinks their baby is special, right? We really mean it though.
When playing your FPS title of choice, have you ever wished that there was something more to it beyond your rank, weapon unlocks, your kill/death ratio and leaderboard prominence? Those things are all great - but what if those matches you fought in actually meant something?
What if your successes and failures against your opponents impacted the course of events in a vast setting, potentially changed a virtual world and the gameplay experience of thousands of other players? More than that, what if that impact was felt across two separate games - one on PS3 and one on PC/Mac - that share the same sci-fi universe?
