9w ago - Sony Product Manager Ken Chan announced today alongside a video that Gran Turismo 6 is adding the legendary Bathurst Circuit for PS3.
To quote: Earlier this year, we officially announced the infamous training ground of GT Academy, Silverstone Circuit, will be available in GT6. Staying true to the global driving experience of GT, we are proud to announce the addition of the Bathurst Circuit (Australia).
Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit, Bathurst, to give it its full name, is the home of motorsport in Australia. Located in New South Wales, it has a rich motorsport history - the first race held there was the 1938 Australian Grand Prix and it now hosts the Bathurst 12 Hour and the Bathurst 1000 races amongst others.
The challenging circuit is 6.213km (4 miles) long with surprisingly steep inclines, a twisty, narrow section across the top of the mountain which proves difficult to master even for the very best racing drivers, and very little run off area to allow for mistakes.
For those unaware, anyone who pre-orders through GameStop gets automatically upgraded to the 15th Anniversary Edition of GT6.
9w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo shared a video today announcing The Guided Fate Paradox hits PS3 on November 5th, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey, doods! It's time again for your humble Prinny David from NIS America to talk about our next game, The Guided Fate Paradox, which is set to launch on November 5th exclusively on PS3.
Let me tell you guys, this one's a doozy. Shall we ascend and take an angel's eye view of this title?
In The Guided Fate Paradox, you play as the exceptionally ordinary high school student, Renya Kagurazaka, who one day wins a shopping mall lottery hosted by a cute girl. Your prize? You become God! And that cute girl's actually an angel named Lilliel tasked with helping you out.
Now your job as God is to guide people's fates by entering the Fate Revolution Circuit, a nifty doodad that creates a Copy World of reality.
It's in this Copy World where you'll do battle against aberrations - the physical manifestations of the things preventing people from becoming what they want - and help people achieve their potential. But you'll soon discover that there may be darker forces beyond just these aberrations that are trying to keep you from guiding these fates...
10w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King announced today that the Pinball Arcade is getting a Terminator 2 table on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey there, Playstation gamers! It's been an exciting time for us in bringing pinball table recreations to everyone on PS3 and Vita!
Over the month of September, we've released four classic pinball tables in two packs; Champion Pub, Whirlwind, Flight 2000, and Goin' Nuts. Now, thanks to our amazing supporters and a successful Kickstarter campaign back in July, we'll release Terminator 2: Judgment Day on PSN this Tuesday, as well!
PSN users, are you ready for Judgment Day? This table was released by Williams in 1991 and is unquestionably one of the greatest pinball tables of all time.
It was designed by the legendary Steve Ritchie (who also designed Firepower, Black Knight, High Speed, and Star Trek: The Next Generation). T2 was the first game by Williams to use a dot-matrix display. The table was also the first game to feature a video mode and a swing out cannon that can be fired by the player. It's one of our favorite tables ever!
We hope everyone's been enjoying the releases so far! Also, for those confident in their pinball skills and want to show it, we've begun introducing Tiered Tournaments...
10w ago - Community Editor Victor Zuylen shared a Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 multiplayer Q&A on PlayStation 4 today alongside a video below.
To quote: Yesterday, Killzone Shadow Fall Lead Designer Eric Boltjes held a presentation on the game's multiplayer mode at the 2013 Eurogamer Expo in London. Afterwards he also fielded questions from the audience, going into greater detail about some of Killzone Shadow Fall's features and design choices.
You can watch the whole presentation here:
In addition to the answers Mr. Boltjes provided, we've compiled a list of some of the more frequently asked questions that have appeared online following our announcement of the multiplayer mode. In particular, we received numerous questions about the multiplayer framerate so, let's dive right in:
Will Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer have a variable frame rate?
No, we're running 60fps. However, the game may drop a few frames in extreme situations - when there are a lot of GPU-intensive things going on at once. Guaranteeing a constant 60fps under such circumstances would've required undesired concessions.
We wanted to make sure Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer would present a visual spectacle, boasting...
