15w ago - Creator Noah Sasso is back with another Sportsfriends update today introducing new BaraBariBall Arenas and PAX Tournaments.
To quote: Last time I posted here I introduced BaraBariBall and the Sportsfriends collection.
Go check it out if you're curious about what the game is, or click here if you want a more in-depth look at its systems (tldr version: it's a fun new fighting game, with a ball).
Since then we've raised enough funding to bring Sportsfriends to PS3, poured a ton more work into all four games, and played BaraBariBall with thousands of people at dozens of events, including UFGT, Magfest, PAX, Apex, two EVOs and many more.
We've been fortunate to have the opportunity to continue to tune and refine BaraBariBall for this long (thanks, Kickstarter supporters!) and there's still lots to do before we're ready to launch, but until then, I'm here to bring you up to speed on some news.
First, we've put together an exciting new trailer that shows off some...

66w 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...
66w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has made available an HD video of The Last of Us PS3 PAX Theater Gameplay demo below today.
To quote: Pax Prime was a blast! We were amped to publicly show off our behind-closed-doors gameplay demo of The Last of Us that only a very select few media members saw at E3.
If you weren't able to make it out to Seattle we don't want to leave you out (or leave you watching someone's illicit shaky-cam YouTube video) so here it is:
This demo highlights narrative exploration through interactive prompts, environmental puzzles, the balance of power AI, and some of the dynamic stealth elements you'll be able to use to plan Joel and Ellie's survival.
How many resources are at your disposal? Do you go offensive or defensive? You'll have to keep calm, think, and rely on your partner, Ellie, as you survive and make your way westward.
We can't thank you enough for the reception we've received so far for The Last of Us. At PAX Prime, we had some awesome conversations, saw some amazing things, and met some truly dedicated fans.
You guys and gals make all our hard work that much more rewarding - thank you.
