6w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli announced today that their The Last of Us Multiplayer: Nightmare PS3 bundle is officially out tomorrow with details below.
To quote: We're keeping the spirit of Halloween alive and kicking this week as the Nightmare Bundle will be available when PlayStation Store updates in your region. This is our second batch of multiplayer head items.
These nine gnarly masks and helmets can be downloaded for free if you buy The Last of Us Season Pass. If you still haven't purchased a Season Pass, get it now as you'll be savings over 75% versus buying all DLC individually.
If you don't want to buy individual items or the Season Pass, these Nightmare head items are also part of a bundle. If you want the Nightmare Mask for your character they'll only be able to wear it if you have a Season Pass or purchase the Nightmare Bundle. In other words, the Nightmare Mask is exclusive to the Nightmare Bundle and Season Pass holders.
Get ready for more The Last of Us coverage, multiplayer head items, and DLC news in the coming weeks. See you online!
6w ago - Ubisoft Annecy Community Developer Valentin Pasquier-Desvignes announced that Assassin's Creed IV's first PS3 multiplayer event is dubbed Under Control.
To quote: Starting this Friday and through the entire weekend, join the Assassin's Creed multiplayer community in "Under Control", the first of a series of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag multiplayer events where you will work together with your fellow Assassins and Templars to get everyone special in-game prizes!
For "Under Control", you will need to play Domination games and pile up territory captures with our most aristocratic characters: the Huntsman, the Puppeteer, the Dandy and the Duelist.
For the uninitiated, Domination games will have you and your team working together to capture territories and defend them from the opposing team to score. The team who fills the scoring gauge or obtains the highest score at the end of the countdown wins.
For this first multiplayer event, we'll be providing community objectives to get awesome in-game prizes. Starting Friday, you can check out the events section in-game to find out what the current community objectives are.
Outside of the community objectives, you'll find a number of things you can win even before reaching the community objective. For instance, you get...

17w ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty has shared several videos today unveiling some of the secrets from The Last of Us PS3 Multiplayer for fans below.
To quote: Greetings, PlayStation-ers! My name is Colin Moriarty, IGN's Senior Editor.
If you're a PlayStation fanatic - and since you're on the PlayStation.Blog, you probably are - you may recognize me as the man in charge of IGN's PS4, PS3, and PS Vita coverage. You may also know me as one-third of Podcast Beyond.
Today, I write my inaugural PlayStation.Blog post to tell you about something I'm very excited for. See, I'm pretty darn keen on The Last of Us... so much so, in fact, that I got sucked in for about 40 hours worth of multiplayer madness after the game launched. And that got me thinking: who's responsible for The Last of Us' most understated feature, its online suite?
Naturally, I found an answer. Naughty Dog's David Ballard was kind enough to come to IGN's San Francisco headquarters to record a series of videos with me, one for each map in the multiplayer suite.
