88w ago - Irrational Games Evangelist Ratana Huot has shared some video footage today on BioShock Infinite for the PS3 console which spotlights the introduction of the Siren below!
To quote: Now that you've met the Motorized Patriot, Handyman, and the Boys of Silence, it's now time to reveal the fourth and final installment of our Heavy Hitter series - and we're taking the creepy factor up a notch.
Imagine taking down a bunch of bad guys, only to realize that you've just created fuel for something far more terrifying. Backed into a corner, who gets the next bullet?
You'll be facing this decision in Columbia if you're unfortunate enough to get discovered by the Siren. Check out the clip below as Ken Levine, Nate Wells, and Shawn Robertson gives you a sneak peek...
So what do you think? Are you ready to face the Heavy Hitters? Either way, you'll find out when BioShock Infinite launches October 16th, 2012
89w ago - Irrational Games Evangelist Ratana Huot has posted up some videos today spotlighting BioShock Infinite's PS3 heavy hitters: The Boys of Silence below!
To quote: If you've been watching IrrationalGames.com, you may have seen a series of videos debuting BioShock Infinite's unique antagonists you'll be facing in the city of Columbia - we've dubbed them Heavy Hitters.
We wanted to make sure PlayStation.Blog readers were looped in on the fun as well, so today we're stopping by to debut the third installment of Heavy Hitters. It's time to cover your ears: Here come the Boys of Silence!
But the third installment of Heavy Hitters may surprise you. Instead of using brute force and heavy artillery, these guys only use sound - it's all they'll need to get your adrenaline flowing as you check your ammo and run for cover.
When encountering the Boys of Silence, Booker and Elizabeth can choose to sneak past these sentries or engage them directly to silence them forever. Just don't give them a chance to summon reinforcements...
In case you missed the other videos in our Heavy Hitters...
91w ago - Plastic Studios Game Director Michal Staniszewski has officially introduced Datura today, an exclusive PSN game for PlayStation Move.
To quote: I'm Michal Staniszewski from Team Plastic (Plastic Studios) - yep, the same creators of Linger in Shadows.
Two years ago, we were asked to closely investigate possibilities of the PlayStation Move motion controller, which was still deep in its prototype phase.
Today, we are proud to present you with Datura, which uses the controller in a quite innovative way.
Finding yourself in a mysterious forest, you will navigate your way through the game by controlling your character's hand using Playstation Move technology.
From here, you are immersed into the game's unique experimental narrative and original way of interaction, which enables you to experience the world not only visually, but also empirically – an illusion that you can actually touch trees, faces, and other objects.
While taking inspiration from film-like narratives, Datura is a story you get a chance to physically participate in. As you travel through the game, you will encounter choices and face your consequences. It is through these puzzles that Datura explores an element of anxiety: was it a right choice or a wrong choice?
92w ago - Irrational Games Evangelist Ratana Huot has announced today that BioShock Infinite will be released on the PS3 this October 16th, 2012 with details below!
To quote: Today, the team at Irrational Games is proud to announce that BioShock Infinite will be released on PS3 this October 16th, 2012.
Our President and Creative Director Ken Levine has been talking about the game for years now and, like the rest of the Irrational Games team, he's thrilled that we can finally share the game's final release date.
"After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition," he told me. "BioShock Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we can't wait for fans to get their hands on it."
The game will support the PlayStation Move motion controller and we'll have further details to share on how it will work soon.
In addition, you will get a free copy of the original BioShock on the game's Blu-ray Disc. In the meantime, you can visit IrrationalGames.com to learn more about the game, or pre-order to ensure you get your copy on October 16th.
BioShock Infinite will be available on PlayStation 3 internationally on October...
93w ago - Today Game Designer Tam VooFoo at VooFoo Studios has announced that Hustle Kings is now available on the PS Vita handheld console.
To quote: Everyone here at VooFoo is proud that you can now play Hustle Kings on PlayStation Vita.
Once you've got your PS Vita all unwrapped, head to the PlayStation Store and you'll find Hustle Kings there for a superb £6.49. If you have pre-ordered a PS Vita then you can redeem your discount voucher to get Hustle Kings for just £1.49!
And if that wasn't tempting enough, you'll also get the PS3 version for free! That is a flabbergasting deal right there. The two versions are very different so you're almost getting two games for the price of one.
We have spent a lot of time and effort making Hustle Kings on PS Vita as great as possible. There are a lot of improvements from the PS3 version of Hustle Kings, along with a lot of entirely new content just for PS Vita.
We wanted to take full advantage of the Vita's unique inputs, and we think we've done so with a selection of control methods to cater for everyone from novice players right up to all you Hustle Kings pros.
If you want to bask in the PS Vita's touchscreen glory then it's really straightforward to...
