20h ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went hands-on at this year's E3 expo and shared feedback on the new DualShock 4 PS4 controller below!
To quote: Following its debut at PlayStation's February 20th event in New York City, DualShock 4 has emerged at E3 in near-final form.
Though DualShock 3 has proven to be a capable and dependable wireless controller for years with PlayStation 3, the PS4's new weapon of choice is a clear improvement across the board. Here are some quick E3 2013 impressions.
For me, DualShock 4's most impactful new feature is a subtle but shockingly satisfying detail: A glossy cross-hatched texture that wraps around the larger handles.
This texture provides a snug, more comfortable grip on the device compared to DualShock 3's slipperier feel. This is one of those things you'll need to try for yourself to truly understand, but once you experience it there's no going back. It's a delight.
Then there are the redesigned and retuned analog sticks, which now boast a concave surface and slightly stiffer deadzone that makes it easier to maneuver the camera using small, precise movements. The surface is also more tactile, but not so much that it impedes your thumb's ability to glide around the inner rim as your make subtle adjustments to your aiming...
5d ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt posted up a fresh Watch_Dogs PlayStation 4 walkthrough demo video from E3 2013 today for PS4 fans below!
To quote: In this most recent Watch_Dogs gameplay demo, we witnessed the wide variety of tools that Aiden has in his arsenal, all expressed through gameplay.
Whether it be by driving in a stealthily way to try and evade assailants, by assisting a friend in escaping a sticky situation, or by blacking out parts of the city to give him tactical advantage, we were able to see all the agency we'll have while exploring the great city of Chicago.
Now, we've seen how Aiden lends a helping hand to a friend, but who's helping him? Who's helping you, the player, when the odds seemed to have been tipped against you? That's where it becomes interesting.
There's yet another layer of connectivity that will be available to you in Watch_Dogs: Co-op on mobile devices. When you're calling for help, you are sending a request to friends who are connected to the Watch_Dogs universe through their mobile devices.
When that request is accepted, a co-op experience starts and the goal for the two players is to survive from the police by escaping their pursuit. This is just another way Watch_Dogs brings you the full, hyper-connected experience.
5d ago - Creator Adam "Keits" Heart revealed some new challengers today in Divekick on PS3 and PS Vita through PSN.
To quote: Divekick's roster continues to grow, and each new challenger is even more insane than the last.
Of course, we recommend that you learn how to play using one of the original eight characters, but don't let that stop you from trying out some of these advanced fighters.

5d ago - Zen Studios Creative Director Neil Sorens shared a video today of KickBeat on PlayStation Vita strutting its stuff at E3 2013.
To quote: Hey there, Playstation fans. Lots of excitement in the air these days as this year's E3 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting yet.
Not only did we get our first real look at the PlayStation 4 - I'm pre-ordering it already, myself - but Vita got its share of E3 love, too. KickBeat, for one, is playable in the Sony booth!
If this is your first time hearing about KickBeat, introductions are in order. KickBeat is a rhythm action where you fight baddies in time with the music. It's different from other rhythm games in that you play the action itself instead of playing an interface (bars, arrows, button icons, etc.) that's slapped on top of the action.
Enemies come at you from all directions, and you fight them off by pressing the buttons representing those directions at the right time. So let's say an enemy is attacking you from the left.
Hit the Square or left button (or tap the left side of the screen) when he gets close enough, which will match up with a beat from the song, and you'll serve him some kung fu smackdown. Simple enough, right? There are some more advanced controls later on, but you...
