Sony Goes Hands-On with Persona 4 Golden for PlayStation Vita

120w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein went hands-on today with Persona 4 Golden for the PlayStation Vita video game portable console.

To quote: There's never been a better time to be a fan of the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series.

Persona 4 Arena has just arrived on our shores this week, taking the venerable RPG franchise into 2D fighting game territory (and successfully so).

This fall, one of the PS2′s most highly regarded games is coming to PS Vita with Persona 4 Golden. Even if you're new to the series, as I am, there's never been a better time to get into it.

As a recent inductee into the Persona universe (via Persona 3 Portable on PS Vita), I eagerly took up [Register or Login to view links] on the opportunity to sample a work-in-progress edition of Persona 4 Golden last week.

The first thing you're likely to notice about P4G is how good this game looks. It's not surprising that a PS Vita game would look better than a PS2 or PSP game, but the sharpness and contrast of the visuals on "dat screen" are dramatically better than anything the series has seen.

While a lot of the static character art isn't new (especially that of the Personae, which are largely the same as in P3), the crispness of the screen had me thinking...

Sony Goes Hands-On with Starhawk Campaign: Wild Wild West

137w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman goes hands-on today with the Wild Wild West Starhawk Campaign with details below!

To quote: Though legions of bloodthirsty PSN warriors have plunged into Starhawk's multiplayer beta, the single-player campaign has remained stubbornly cloaked in shadow.

Until now: At a media event in New York City this week, Lightbox Interactive finally gave a peek under that cloak, showcasing a series of frantic battles and lush cinematic sequences from the game's story-driven campaign.

As Emmett Graves, an interstellar mercenary infected by a priceless but mutagenic resource dubbed "Rift energy," you'll use the game's dramatic Build and Battle combat system to call down turrets, walls, vehicles and structures from outer space.

Your objective is to defend the frontier town of White Sands from marauding Outcast invaders – including your Rift-possessed outlaw brother Logan.

Starhawk's Western-tinged story is told through lavishly illustrated cut-scenes that weave in and out of the gameplay, seamlessly connecting the action sequences and, better still, cutting between-mission load times to the bone.

I sampled several minutes of the campaign and was pleased to discover a fast-paced yet strategic sandbox shooter that...

143w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with some fresh video footage on Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time below.

To quote: Earlier this week, Rey and I visited Foster City-based Sanzaru Games, the developers of this fall's Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

As the first original PS3 entry in the classic PS2 thieving series, and the first to be developed outside of Sucker Punch Studios, Thieves in Time represents a long-awaited return to form as well as a natural entry point for series newcomers.

Where Sly 2 and Sly 3 let you slip into the roles of Sly's partners in crime, Thieves in Time expands upon that concept by granting you control of Sly's infamous ancestors - the Cooper Clan members named in the hallowed pages of the [Register or Login to view links]. In one chapter set in ancient Japan, I played as Riochi, Sly's sushi-slinging ninja ancestor.

Slinking past sleeping guards while searching for a special set of sushi knives, I used Riochi's Leaping Dragon ability to soar through laser fences and other high-tech traps designed to derail the Cooper Clan's devious destiny.





Other playable ancestors, including the medieval...
