132w ago - SCEA Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has posted up a Starhawk PS3 Multiplayer video today for fans spotlighting CTF (Capture The Flag) in the Acid Sea.
To quote: Lots of you are wondering how Build & Battle fits in with the Warhawk recipe of "frenetic epic firefights," so today we wanted to give you a taste of what we will have playable at E3 next week!
This is a video of an actual multiplayer tournament we had recently at the LightBox studio.
As you know Starhawk also has a cool single-player campaign that will immerse you in the story of our main character, Emmett Graves, but as you can see we have not forgotten about our multiplayer roots!
We've designed Starhawk's multiplayer to be just as much fun as Warhawk's, but now with our new Build & Battle toy box, you shooter fans will have something you haven't truly experienced before - the ability to change the battlefield on the fly. We'll have more details on Starhawk's multiplayer soon, but for now we invite you to come visit us at E3!
Thanks a ton for the amazing reactions to Starhawk thus far. I can honestly say that we've only scratched the surface so look out for more info in the months ahead.

If you visited the booth last year, you'll remember that we enabled you to explore a virtual recreation of PlayStation's E3 booth. Expect the same this year, with a few new surprises – including a 3D-rendered NGP to inspect from every angle.
132w ago - Today PSX-Scene shared an updated demo video of the PS3 Nintendo DS (NDS) Emulator Alpha Build by an anonymous PlayStation 3 developer.
To quote: "It is running very smoothly. I loaded up some games and they all played fine with the exception of the sound, which is not working in the current build.
Sorry for the short video. The noise in the background is my fan, as it really hot here these days, but it was not easy holding my 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab in my hand, while using the PS3 Controller on my lap."
The PS3 Nintendo DS (NDS) Emulator Alpha Build Demo is posted below with an official release pending.
132w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video today while detailing Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3 PS3 Multiplayer details.
To quote: By now you've probably read the full details of what you'll get with UNCHARTED 3's upcoming multiplayer beta. Now, in our new video interview, Naughty Dog's top developers reveal just how deep this rabbit hole goes.
At a glance, UNCHARTED 3's most obvious multiplayer enhancement lies in its sweeping character customization options in the form of weapon loadouts, gun mods and a wide selection of ability-enhancing Boosters.
You'll be able to modify your character's appearance in almost every way, whether you want to slap some aviators on Nathan Drake or cobble together a custom hero or villain from scratch.
"There are hundreds and hundreds of parts and every part has a customizable color," Game Director Justin Richmond tells us. "You can look the way you want to look. We want it to feel personal."
"Personal" is a theme that permeates every yawning nook and cavernous cranny of UNCHARTED 3's redesigned multiplayer experience. Underneath the ultra-polished shooting mechanics and well-balanced...
