14w ago - Creator Noah Sasso is back with another Sportsfriends update today introducing new BaraBariBall Arenas and PAX Tournaments.
To quote: Last time I posted here I introduced BaraBariBall and the Sportsfriends collection.
Go check it out if you're curious about what the game is, or click here if you want a more in-depth look at its systems (tldr version: it's a fun new fighting game, with a ball).
Since then we've raised enough funding to bring Sportsfriends to PS3, poured a ton more work into all four games, and played BaraBariBall with thousands of people at dozens of events, including UFGT, Magfest, PAX, Apex, two EVOs and many more.
We've been fortunate to have the opportunity to continue to tune and refine BaraBariBall for this long (thanks, Kickstarter supporters!) and there's still lots to do before we're ready to launch, but until then, I'm here to bring you up to speed on some news.
First, we've put together an exciting new trailer that shows off some...
14w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with a fresh video demonstrating Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 Multiplayer hands-on with the PlayStation 4 console below.
To quote: Going hands-on with Killzone: Shadow Fall's multiplayer mode for the first time at Gamescom, I couldn't help but feel that Shadow Fall represents a sea change for the veteran shooter series.
The gameplay retains the series' signature weight and heft, so you never feel like you're ice-skating through the the meticulously detailed environments. But thanks to a host of refinements from Guerrilla Games, Shadow Fall is undeniably a faster, more fluid, and more satisfying Killzone. Call it Killzone reborn.
DualShock 4 plays a significant role here, with its massively upgraded ergonomics and shooter-friendly L2 and R2 triggers (though Shadow Fall will allow you to use the classic L1 and R1 as well, if you prefer).
After my play session, Game Director Steven ter Heide commented that the Shadow Fall no longer uses aim assist, making it a truer test of skill. And you'll never even notice that change, given the high responsiveness of DualShock 4's comfortable new analog sticks.

To quote: Grand Theft Auto Online is a dynamic and persistent online world for 16 players that begins by sharing gameplay features, geography and mechanics with Grand Theft Auto V, but will continue to expand and evolve after its launch with new content created by Rockstar Games and the Grand Theft Auto community.
Grand Theft Auto Online takes the fundamental Grand Theft Auto concepts of freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and makes them available to multiple players in an incredibly detailed and responsive online world.

Players can invest in their character through customizing their appearance, improving their stats, owning customized vehicles, purchasing personal property, and taking part in missions, jobs and activities to earn reputation and cash to open up new opportunities to rise through the criminal ranks.
