To quote: Greetings, doods! How goes things? Ryan from NISA here, dropping by to let you know that Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory releases today in North America exclusively for PlayStation 3!
It's time again to join the exuberant and extremely awesome Neptune and her gaggle of CPU goddess buddies for a brand-new adventure in Gamindustri!
For those new to the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, it is a turn-based comedy RPG set in a world called Gamindustri, which is governed by different CPU Goddesses. Each goddess is actually a living and playable personification of the different video game consoles that we all have come to hold dear to our hearts.
As the player, you take the role of the main character, Neptune, and along with a whole slew of strong female counterparts, it's your job to make sure that order reigns supreme in Gamindustri!
So what's putting Gamindustri at risk this time around? Victory begins several years after Neptune's sister Nepgear...

43w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with The Last of Us for PlayStation 3.
To quote: I've finally played a chapter from Naughty Dog's eagerly awaited post-pandemic survival tale, and the first thing I want to say is this: The Last of Us is not a shooter. Well, not exactly.
Though Joel packs a pistol, you'll count yourself lucky to be holding more than 10 bullets at any one time. Most times you'll want to avoid fights by sneaking and hiding. In other, more desperate times you'll pull the trigger with a feeling of great reluctance - all the while praying that you don't miss.
The ultra-tight ammo supply imbues the game with a primal, high-stakes tension that brings uncertainty to every decision you make. One thing's for sure: this is one mess you won't be able to shoot your way out of.
"The Last of Us is not a shooter."
As I guided Joel's group around the dilapidated fringes of post-pandemic Boston, I saw constant reminders of Naughty Dog's legendary attention to detail.
Step under a trickle of water and Joel will raise his hand to keep his head dry; knock an enemy near a wall and Joel will pin him there to deliver a staggering punch. The environments also bristle with detail.
44w ago - Sony Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales of Latin America has gone hands on today with Aliens: Colonial Marines which is due out on PS3 February 12, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: Imagine that an all-knowing time traveller landed in 1986 in order to whisper the mysteries of 2013 to the startled mid-80s masses.
Flying cars, powerful cell phones... a videogame sequel to Aliens? Now, 27 years after the theatrical release of James Cameron's blockbuster, Gearbox Software is making the dream come true on PS3 February 12th.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is the sequel to Aliens that we always wanted but never got. You are a Colonial Marine sent to LV-426 to find out what happened to Ellen Ripley. If you've seen Aliens, you know that things with Ripley didn't turn out so well, and you, with no idea what to expect, will find yourself entering hell, somewhere far, far away from planet Earth.
"It was an itch that we had, ever since we saw the first and second movie. That itch has never been scratched; there's a different history that we always felt that needed to be told, that involves Colonial Marines.
Once Cameron introduced them to the Alien universe, there was no going...
47w ago - Gearbox Software Writer Anthony Burch has announced alongside a video that Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt begins today.
To quote: Hey there, Anthony Burch from Gearbox here! Sir Hammerlock had told me that in the past he wrote his PlayStation fans a letter, so naturally when I mentioned I was writing this blog post he jumped at the opportunity to do it for me. Sucker! He's all book smarts.
Salutations, Vault Hunters!
Sir Hammerlock here, with a cracking proposal for you. Being the oh-so-well-armed badass you are, you've already saved the world, found a pirate's treasure, and spectacularly murdered your way to the top of a badass leaderboard or two. But.
Have you - he asked, pausing for dramatic effect - have you ever fought a Stalker the size of a small building? Have you ever fought a mystical shaman bandit who can level up his companions at will? Have you ever hunted down Scaylions, Boroks, Spores and Savages?
As you have not yet joined me on my excursion to the brutal continent of Aegrus, I shall pre-emptively answer on your behalf: "No, Sir Hammerlock," you say. "I have yet to do any of these things. Pray tell - how could a no-nonsense brigand like myself experience...
