7w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli announced news of new hats in PS3 Multiplayer on The Last of Us alongside a game sale with details below.
To quote: Halloween is rapidly approaching in North America. We're celebrating by starting to roll out the initial batch of the multiplayer head items for The Last of Us multiplayer. First up are the Country Flag hats:
Comprising 22 items representing 22 countries, these hats are included as part of The Last of Us Season Pass. If you haven't purchased a Season Pass, it's a great deal with 75% savings over buying all the DLC individually. If you'd rather buy the hats separately, they are available for $0.99 each.
If you've missed out entirely and haven't even picked up The Last of Us yet, the North American PlayStation Store is kicking off their Sale of the Dead with deep discounts on the digital version of the full game. Visit the Sale of the Dead blog post for specifics.
Apocalypse is the first community run The Last of Us tournament ever. We're happy to lend support and provide prizing for it. Check out this fan created trailer promoting the tournament from community member and tournament organizer, Triplewreck:
10w ago - Quirkat Studio Head Candide Kirk announced that Pro Foosball on PlayStation 3 is out tomorrow via PSN with details below, as follows:
A foosball table is one of those things that we've always wanted to own at home, but it's almost never practical enough to do so. Which is why we thought we'd bring the same level of fun and excitement right to your TV screen with Pro Foosball on PlayStation Network.
Pro Foosball was released in Europe earlier this year, and we're now ready to bring the same level of fun to U.S. gamers!
With a Platinum Trophy up for grabs, Pro Foosball has been built to completely and realistically bring the foosball experience to your home - from accurate table physics to a competitive atmosphere with friends, we've included it all, along with great locations to play in!
Pro Foosball allows you to compete across 3 modes of play; you can have a quick match with your friends in Kick About with up to 4 players locally, challenge yourself to beat our skilled AI with 3 difficulty levels in Foos Championship, or have fun with crazy table features (such as no edges and bumpy surface) in Foos Madness.
Pro Foosball is primarily designed to be played using the PlayStation Move controllers to mimic the real foosball table's rods; it features many of the...
18w ago - Q-Games Producer James Mielke shared a video below today spotlighting the new PS3 Visualizer application from Q-Games which arrives this Tuesday.
To quote: Hi everyone! It's been a while but I'm back for a second tour of duty on PlayStation.Blog, although I should point out that I switched Qs in the interim (I was formerly a producer at Q Entertainment, and am now a producer at Q-Games).
The reason for my check-in here today is to announce a brand-new app (you'll find it in the 'Apps' section on PSN) for PlayStation 3 simply titled Visualizer, which, as the name suggests, is a new set of over two dozen music visualizers to use with your PS3's music library.
As you may know, Q-Games is known for its technological contributions to the games industry, in addition to its PixelJunk series of games. Q (initially Dylan Cuthbert and Kentaro Yoshida) crafted the legendary duck demo for the original PlayStation 2 reveal, and later as a company were responsible for a lot of the visual effects, XMB bar, and visualizers built in to the PlayStation 3. Q-Games also handled a lot of the interface programming on PS Vita, so, essentially, we know our way around Sony's hardware.
28w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:
Fuse follows a team of four elite agents obliterating enemy strongholds using fringe-tech gadgets and lethal teamwork.
The members of Overstrike 9 are comprised of an ex-mercenary, Interpol's most wanted thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective. Collectively, they are the agency's outcasts.
But a shadowy organization threatens to wipe out humankind. Thanks to each agent's unique talents and a tendency to completely ignore protocol - Overstrike 9 is the only option left.
Fuse blends developer Insomniac Games' flair for exotic weaponry and immersive storytelling with a touch of humor in this 4 person co-op action game for PS3. Enjoy this week's The Drop.
What happens when humans take possession of volatile alien technology they were never meant to have? Find out the hard way in Fuse, a four-person co-op action shooter that puts players in command of contact team Overstrike 9 - four elite agents, each with their own unique skills and experimental weapons.
