65w ago - Sony Associate Producer Jenny Barbour has shared a developer diary video today announcing that Wonderbook: Book of Spells is coming to PS3 on November 13th, 2012.
To quote: I wanted to give you an update on a project that we are incredibly excited about here at PlayStation: Wonderbook.
Although we only announced it a few months ago, our team at London Studio has been working hard on the technology behind Wonderbook for years.
We recently sat down with the team to create a series of "making of" diaries that give you a closer look at the development of Wonderbook. To kick off these developer diaries, the team focused on the core technology that helped form the foundation of the project.
The first game to use this new technology is the product of our collaboration with J.K. Rowling, Wonderbook: Book of Spells. By taking PlayStation Move's augmented reality capabilities and pairing them with the Wonderbook peripheral, we were able to create a truly immersive, magical world in which you'll be able to learn how to cast many spells including: Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, with your very own spell book and wand.
65w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein is here with some video footage showcasing the God of War: Ascension PS3 panel highlights from PAX 2012 below.
To quote: This past weekend at PAX, I was fortunate enough to moderate a panel with some of the top minds working on God of War: Ascension.
While getting inside the heads of the creators of Kratos' next adventure was a treat, we did a lot more than just talk.
The team brought early sketches of Kratos (dreadlocks!) and the first playable video of the original God of War, before the Blades of Chaos were irrevocably bound to his forearms. We also revealed Ascension's big bads, the Furies, with a close look at Mageara, the "enforcer" of the mythical tio.
While we streamed the panel live, courtesy of Twitch.tv, you're forgiven if you missed it last Friday evening. But the excuses are gone now - we've cut down the hour-long panel into an 11-minute highlight reel. Take a look:
Your panelists, from left to right:
• Mark Simon - Lead Designer on God of War: Ascension
• Patrick Murphy - Principal Character Artist for God of War: Ascension
• Marianne Krawczyk - award-winning...
