86w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Manager Chuck Lacson has announced today that fans can watch the latest Starhawk video trailer on Facebook and get free PS3 DLC to boot.
To quote: You may have noticed how our past trailers have focused on the things that make Starhawk so much fun to play.
Build to Kill was all about the fun of building a base and defending it against attack. Ride, Drive & Fly gave people a taste of what you can drive and pilot in-game.
Our latest trailer is all about the fun of teamwork, it's called "Build Your Team" and it's exclusively on Facebook.
Just click here to give it a view. You may recognize some familiar faces. Very familiar.
For those of you who have tried Starhawk already, you know that skills can get you far, but teamwork can get you further. The game becomes something completely different when you play with your friends and start working together. That's what our latest trailer is about.

To quote: Head-turning videogame tech demos are a dime a dozen at Game Developers' Conference, but developer Quantic Dream might have this year's crop beat.
Watch the full tech demo video for "Kara" below to see how the creators of Heavy Rain are looking to expand virtual performances in video games.

Director David Cage was on-hand at GDC to debut the new video to the press, and his presentation touched on the origins of "Kara" - we've selected a few choice quotes below. Check back tomorrow to hear our full interview with Cage on the Official PlayStation Blogcast. It's one interview you won't want to miss!
After Heavy Rain, we wanted to push the envelope in terms of quality, starting with the visuals. We wanted to improve many things - things that were not possible with the Heavy Rain engine. So we had to develop a new engine from scratch.
We also wanted to improve the quality of the acting. With Heavy Rain, we did what many games do - split performances,...
93w ago - Today Lead Designer Peter Porai-Koshits has shared some video footage of the new Wheels of Destruction: Class Warfare Heavy Trailer below for fans.
To quote: Team warfare has been an element of great multiplayer games for a long time.
But as soon as we introduced team multiplayer combat to Wheels of Destruction, we realized that players want to feel like an individual, a dynamic asset on the battlefield, which led us to creating a tried-and-true class-based system. With Wheels of Destruction, our five distinct vehicle classes cater to different multiplayer strategies.
Earlier in the development cycle, considered expanding this concept further still with unique characters. However, that idea ended up on the cutting-room floor for several reasons. When presented with too many choices, players tend to fall into an "analysis paralysis" worse than prom night. Too much time spent "mini-maxing" skill trees can take the player out of what we want to be a fast-paced experience.
You can see the Heavy class in action in our new video below.
When you're playing a single-player game, it's natural to want to make your character your own. But with Wheels of Destruction we're interested in creating...
