Video: FuturLab's Velocity for PSN - The Soundtrack Story Detailed

50°
98w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden has shared some video footage today spotlighting the soundtrack story details of Velocity for PSN.

To quote: Our new game Velocity has been out for a couple of weeks now, and we're delighted with the reception.

We've had superb reviews, so today I'm going to reveal how Velocity's soundtrack came to be, and how it's absolutely essential that you don't give up on something you believe in, ever.

MUSIC

When I was little (7 or 8), I used to tinker on the piano. I couldn't read music, but I could work out how to play a tune after hearing it a couple of times. I used to practice and practice until I had it mastered. I spent a good deal of my younger years messing about with toy keyboards, writing little songs and playing them to people.

However, in secondary school, I infuriated my music teacher because she was trying to skim through many different practical exercises, and all I wanted to do was get the first exercise mastered.

When she mentioned that I was disrupting the class to my parents, I became very insecure about it, and ultimately stopped doing it, deciding that I was actually no good at music after all.

Starhawk Private PS3 Beta Q&A Detailed: Reaching for the Stars

100°
123w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared Q&A details today on the Starhawk private PS3 Beta as part of an interview below.

To quote: At this very moment, a small group of lucky testers are putting the Starhawk Private Beta through its paces. During last week's PlayStation holiday showcase for New York City media, I had a chance to go hands-on with the beta.

But I wanted to learn more about the beta's reception among the diehard Warhawk community, so I chatted with Senior Producer Harvard Bonin to learn some key findings from the beta: the most popular weapons and vehicles, the sneakiest tactics, and what beta players can expect next.

PlayStation.Blog: Obviously, there's a private beta going on right now. What have been some of the key learnings?

Oh, boy. There have been too many to name here, but one of the key learnings has been how closely we need to listen to hardcore Warhawk players. We made some changes to the flight controls that they reacted to negatively. We're now in the process of addressing that, and it's only because of the beta that we realized. Without a beta, we have no way to do that.

We've also seen a lot of strategies we couldn't have anticipated. The Build & Battle configurations are pretty interesting, people placing...
