51w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has posted up a video today on The Last of Us for PS3 covering new survivor Tess' background with details below.
To quote: It's been an exciting December full of fresh The Last of Us news. If you haven't watched our brand new The Last of UsStory Trailer, you're missing out some huge reveals. One of these reveals is a new character seen here, Joel's partner, Tess.
A hardened survivor living in one of the last remaining quarantine zones, Tess operates in the black market of a city under martial law. Partners with Joel, they have become known within the criminal underworld for their ruthlessness.
Street smart and confident, Tess is a savvy strategist and negotiator. Her ability to generate intelligent plans to secure the contraband for their trade is second to none.
Tess and Joel subscribe to the same dog-eat-dog philosophy. They survive by being willing to do what others can't or won't. Her trust in and loyalty towards Joel runs deep. However, secretly, she questions whether Joel shares the same emotions that she feels for him.
Strong, smart, and street savvy, Tess is a pivotal character in the world of The Last of Us. Tess...
52w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Game Director Omar Kendall has shared details today on Kat and Emmett in PS All-Stars alongside a new level reveal below!
To quote: It's been a couple of weeks since Seth let the Kat (and the Emmett!) out of the bag, so I thought I'd stop in and give you guys some insight into the philosophy behind putting these two great characters into PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The team and I attended an event at the Santa Monica Studios last night where we gave media attendees the first hands-on look at our new DLC, including the unveil of a brand new level, so I wanted to give you all a sneak peek at some of their moves and show off our newest level, Fearless! It's all exciting stuff that I'm eager to tell you all about, so let's get started.
Gravity Rush landed on PlayStation Vita earlier this year, introducing us to Kat. Her tremendous gravity powers, combined with a really charming personality made her an instant fan favorite, and thus an obvious candidate for PlayStation All-Stars.
When looking at Kat's play style in Gravity Rush two things immediately stood out to us: her reliance on aerial mobility and her arsenal of powerful kick-based attacks. We felt it was important to use these two elements as the cornerstone of Kat's play style, and as...
55w ago - A few weeks ago we reported that on the rumor that PlayStation 4 developer kits were shipping and based on the AMD A10, and now PSM3's German edition (via TheGNet) has shared some new PS4 (Orbis) rumor details below.
To quote from Gameranx.com (linked above): "First off, the magazine states that the PS4 won't even be named the PS4. While it will still have the "PlayStation" name attached to it, there won't be a number 4 next to it.
The reason is that the number 4 is pronounced "Shi" in Japan and in Chinese. "Shi" also has the same sound as "death" so that makes it a very unlucky number for a lot of people in the world. It's so reviled that "many hospitals in Japan have therefore no room with the number 4 or even a fourth floor - similar to a few high-rise buildings in the West no 13th Floor have."
The PS4's codename, which is now known as Orbis, could even be part of the final name. For the rest of the details, read on below (via NeoGAF).
Second Games of the first generation will look like the high-end PC demos on watchdogs and Star Wars 1313 or Square...
57w ago - Four Door Lemon Producer Les Ellis is here with details today on Sony's new PlayStation Mobile game QuizQuizQuiz which is now available.
To quote: Hi everyone! We're pleased to bring the addictive trivia fun of QuizQuizQuiz to PlayStation Mobile this week!

Also on offer are three multiplayer game modes to provide a different...
To quote: Next Tuesday, October 23rd, we will be releasing a new system software update for PlayStation 3 (version 4.30). With this update we have made several changes to how Trophies are displayed on your PlayStation 3.
The Trophy Collection will now reside under PlayStation Network on the XMB. Trophies that you have earned playing PlayStation Vita games are now displayed on your PlayStation 3. You will also be able to see your Trophy level and progress towards the next level while viewing your trophy collection.
By the beginning of November 2012, we will retire the services available through the Life with PlayStation application. In conjunction with its retirement, we will stop offering the Life with PlayStation application to new users with the 4.30 update.
