2w ago - Sixense Studios Creative Director Danny Woodall shared some video footage today announcing that Portal 2 In Motion is now offering a free Co-op PS3 campaign starting today.
To quote: Last December, you voted Portal 2 In Motion the Best Use of PlayStation Move. Sixense is grateful for your support. But we have been hearing one question from you: "Where's co-op?"
As a "thank you" from Sixense to the PS3 community, all owners of the Portal 2 In Motion DLC will receive Non-Emotional Manipulation, an all-new co-op campaign specifically designed for Playstation Move, for free.
We are deploying the patch today via PSN, so if you own the Portal 2 In Motion DLC you'll get this new co-op content for free, automatically.
If you don't own Portal 2 and Portal 2 In Motion yet, both the game and the DLC will be on sale for 20% off starting today on the PlayStation Store. PlayStation Plus members will receive an additional 40% off the sale price.
Non-Emotional Manipulation builds off of the new motion mechanics introduced in the previous Portal 2 In Motion single-player campaigns, but now with an added co-op twist.
You can play Non-Emotional Manipulation split-screen with two Playstation Move controllers, or online with a friend across the internet. And you...
15w ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow unveiled a new Skullgirls update today which includes a free character and stage with details below.
To quote: Last week, Lab Zero Games, the new developer of Skullgirls, started an Indiegogo campaign to keep the game growing with the addition of new characters.
The results have simply blown us away -- our amazing fans raised $150,000 to fund Squigly, our first DLC character, in under 24 hours. And now, a week later, we've more than doubled that and are well on our way to funding a second character.
So sometime this summer, all owners of Skullgirls will be able to download Squigly free! Not only will you get this awesome, parasite-infested opera singer to play with, you'll also get her story mode and a new stage.
In addition to Squigly's stage, we'll also be developing a new stage, the River King Casino, that will be also be released free. Check out this early concept sketch:
I did say it was early. But in the coming weeks, you'll see that rough sketch turn into a beautiful, hand-painted 3D stage.
In addition to an all-new track by Castlevania: Symphony of the Night composer, Michiru Yamane, this stage will feature our "Patron Saint" contributors'...
16w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared an interview with Naughty Dog today, who talks about their recent Uncharted 3 PS3 Multiplayer free-to-play decision.
To quote: Naughty Dog, purveyors of fine action-adventure games including the upcoming survival action game The Last of Us, made a bold move yesterday.
They decided to make the core multiplayer component of their most recent game, the globetrotting epic Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, free.
In a world of microtransactions and freemium stigmas, gamers naturally had questions about this decision. Why Free-to-Play? How will this affect the game's community?
We caught up with Uncharted 3 Game Director Justin Richmond, who gave us an inside look at the company's thought process behind giving away the core multiplayer mode of one of Naughty Dog's most popular games.
PlayStation.Blog: Why Free-to-Play? What opportunities does this model present that aren't there in the more traditional one?
"Free-To-Play takes away a huge barrier that exists for many players."
