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.
68w ago - Sony Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has made available some fresh videos from Gamescom 2012 today recapping the LittleBigPlanet Karting PS3 and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita news below.
To quote: Gamescom 2012 is currently in progress and LittleBigPlanet is the height of popularity there, thanks to our brand new titles LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting.
To celebrate the occasion, we have a few treats for you!
LittleBigPlanet DLC Costume Cross-Compatibility!
Customization is a BIG part of LittleBigPlanet. Being able to modify your Sackboy or Sackgirl is a way for players to personalize their experience, while also bringing a variety of different franchises and entertainment properties into the LBP universe.
We recognize this and have decided that we can't ask all you LittleBigPlaneteers to fully enjoy the upcoming LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting without an amazing assortment of costumes at your disposal.
So, we're going to let you bring the costumes that you bought for LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 along with you... at no extra cost!
Not only that, but for any new costumes that take your fancy, you will only ever need to purchase the costume once and you'll have access to it across LittleBigPlanet...
69w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Community Manager Daniel Maniago has officially revealed several new PlayStation All-Stars PS3 videos today at Gamescom 2012 including Dante, Sackboy, Spike, and Ratchet and Clank below!
To quote: Gamescom is finally upon us, and you know what that means: time for some highly anticipated Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale reveals!
We're thrilled to announce the inclusion of Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank in PlayStation All-Stars! Given the wealth of tools and gadgets at their disposal, it made perfect sense to us to include them in our roster.
This duo is strongest at mid-range, and they can cut off many points of entry with varied angles of attack.
We made sure that iconic Ratchet and Clank weapons such as the Combusto Pistol, the R.Y.N.O., and Tesla Spikes are available for players to utilize on the battlefield.
Clank joins in on the fight wielding his powerful Chronoscepter, and even Mr. Zurkon can be summoned to lend a hand!
Also joining the cast is Spike from Sony Computer Entertainment's franchise Ape Escape – a character that was on our radar from early on.
76w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski has announced today that PS3 RPG Rainbow Moon rises on PSN this July 10th alongside some new video footage below!
To quote: Rainbow Moon is our upcoming role-playing game for PS3. It's been nearly two years since we started working on Rainbow Moon, so we can hardly believe that the game releases on PSN in just over two weeks – it'll hit PlayStation Store on July 10th for $14.99.
If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you'll enjoy a 20% discount, paying just $11.99, for the first two weeks after launch.
The last time we spoke, I explained Rainbow Moon's battle system. This time, I'd like to give you some insight into the game's character development system.
Many gamers think that character development is just about battling and leveling up. While that's partly true in Rainbow Moon, there's a lot more that can make or break a game.
Aside from RPG standards like experience points and gaining levels, in Rainbow Moon you can earn a resource called "Rainbow Pearls." You can exchanged these for improved character attributes or increased health and magic limits.
This system gives you a certain freedom in how you'd like...
77w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy is here today with a KickBeat PS Vita gameplay video and some Zen Pinball 2 updates from this year's E3 convention.
To quote: Zen Studios is fresh off an exciting and successful E3. Although our presence was modest, we still made a big impact.
KickBeat for PS Vita won Destructoid's Best of Rhythm E3 award, and Zen Pinball 2 was nominated for Best of E3 2012 by IGN and Best Portable Game by Destructoid. We are extremely honored to be included alongside the industry's best!
KickBeat sure received a positive response at E3. We think it's because there is nothing else like it, and a lot of people caught on to that.
There were also some people who simply told us we were crazy when they watched us play, but once they got their hands on the game they had BIG smiles on their faces. We have some new video that was released right before and then during E3, we wanted to make sure you guys got a chance to view as well.
The first video is the intro story chapter to KickBeat, setting up our Kung Fu style cheesy story. All of these story scenes are hand animated, and yes, we hired professional voice actors. As a matter of fact, at least one of the actors we've used came by the Sony booth to say "hi," as they are all from Los Angeles.
