40w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has shared a video today recapping the PS4 / PlayStation 4 announcement featuring some of PlayStation's Top Game Creators below today.
To quote: One week ago, PlayStation 4 was announced in New York City in a presentation streamed by more than 12 million gamers.
We met the new DualShock 4 controller, soaked up some impressive hardware specs and services, and watched a barrage of upcoming PS4 games, from inFAMOUS: Second Son to Bungie's new title Destiny.
During the presentation, Lead System Architect Mark Cerny remarked that the PS4 was made "by game creators, for game creators."
To test that theory, we met with two of PlayStation's top game creators, SCE World Wide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida and SCEA World Wide Studios Senior Vice President Scott Rohde, to see which of PS4′s new features has them most inspired.
180w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a recap of a Dead Space 2 PS3 interview from E3 2010 today.
To quote: At the conclusion of Dead Space, space miner Isaac Clarke was, shall we say, a little unwell. Though Clarke's body survived his first encounter with the Necromorph, the same can't be said for his mind.
We caught up with the creative director of Dead Space 2, Visceral Games' Wright Bagwell, to learn more about the game's gargantuan new setting, new enemies including the Tripod and the Pack, and new combat abilities including the Javelin gun. Watch our interview below to learn more.
Notably, Dead Space 2 will feature a bigger, deeper universe than the first game. No longer stranded on a dinky deep-space mining station, Clarke now prowls a labyrinthine interstellar complex called "The Sprawl," comprised of hospitals, schools, churches, and unspeakable things that go bump in the night.
Visceral Games has confirmed that the Church of Unitology, the cult-like Necromorph worshippers introduced at the conclusion of Dead Space, will play a far more direct role in this sequel. Naturally, Visceral Games is keeping its lips tightly sealed on the specifics...

We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to enhance your entertainment experience on the PS3 and we're so excited this week to deliver on this promise once again.

198w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared some pictures and recap videos from the recent Heavy Rain PlayStation 3 Paris launch party today.
To quote: As you already know, Heavy Rain drops this Tuesday, and that means this weekend's wait will most likely seem undoubtedly long.
To help ease the pain, PlayStation.Blog.Europe's Jem Alexander comes bearing gifts: videos, pictures and a first-hand account of this week's Parisian activities. Take it away, Jem!
I hope you're ready for lots of Heavy Rain content, because while we were at the big Launch Party in Paris this week we managed to secure a nice amount of interview and video content which should tide you over until well after the game comes out next week.
To kick things off we've got a short teaser video and some photos which should give you an idea of what the launch event was like. I would've loved for you all to have been there with us, but hopefully this is the next best thing.
The event took place at the Gaumont Cinema on the Champs Elysees in Paris, where David Cage (Writer/Director), Guillaume de Fondaumiere (Executive Producer), Pascal Langdale (Actor - Ethan Mars),...
