3w ago - Sega Senior Digital Brand Manager Mai Kawaguchi officially announced Yakuza 5 for PS3 (via PSN) at PlayStation Experience today alongside a PlayStation 3 video trailer video below!

To quote: Today is a very special and exciting day for all of us at SEGA. Partnering with our friends at Sony Computer Entertainment America, we just revealed our plan to bring Yakuza 5 to the U.S. and Europe at PlayStation Experience in Las Vegas.

We also announced that [Register or Login to view links] and Yakuza: Dead Souls are available on PlayStation Network starting today.

We've received so many requests from our fans to bring Yakuza 5 to the U.S. and Europe. Yakuza 5 also made the top of the list of Sony's #BuidingTheList campaign led by Gio Corsi at Sony Computer Entertainment and we were moved by all the support given to Yakuza 5 by the PlayStation community.

Yakuza 5 continues the epic story of Kazuma Kiryu alongside four other protagonists, following their struggles and conflicts in the seedy underbelly of Japan's Yakuza underworld. Featuring a new graphics engine versus its predecessor, Yakuza 5 takes players to five major Japanese cities to venture through a life of crime and power.

12w ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow shared a video today announcing that both Eliza and PSN Avatars from Skullgirls Encore are out today on PSN.

To quote: It's been a few months since we released our second Indiegogo-funded DLC character, Big Band. I'm happy to announce that Eliza, our third character, will be released today in Skullgirls Encore.

Eliza is a diva with a dark secret, and our most ambitious character to date. Eliza fights by manipulating her own blood to attack her enemies, constantly shape-shifting into a variety of Egyptian mythological symbols and cultural icons.

Our creative director, Alex Ahad, has meticulously researched Egypt's lore and packed nearly every one of Eliza's 1,548 frames with references.





Eliza can also summon her bodyguards, Albus and Horace, as well as dislodge her skeletal Parasite, Sekhmet, making her one of our most varied and dynamic characters to date.

Eliza's story mode is our most comprehensive yet. With more than 80 pieces of art, it dives deep into Skullgirls' lore and reveals a lot of the inner workings of the Skullgirls universe. Definitely not to be missed!

And finally, as we always do with our DLC characters, Eliza will be completely...

Video: PS4 Music Player App Revealed by Shuhei Yoshida's PSN Profile

100°
34w ago - Following the rumors that MP3 playback is coming soon to the PlayStation 4, today what may be a Sony PS4 Music Player application was revealed by Shuhei Yoshida's PSN Profile!

To quote: There have been rumors of MP3 playback support coming to the PS4 with a future update, and something found by one of our readers that snooped on Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida's PSN profile definitely seems to add solidity to those rumors:

Apparently Yoshida-san ran a "Music Player Demo" app yesterday, and it left very visible tracks on his PSN profile, as you can see in the pictures at the bottom of the post:

Of course we don't have clear information on what the "Music Player" entails, or if it'll really play MP3 files, but now we know that it exists, and it's being tested internally at Sony Computer Entertainment.

It's worth mentioning that normally this kind of unannounced app is kept hidden from profiles, but apparently someone forgot to flip that switch.

We'll have to stand by and see if the app will be announced any time soon, or if it'll make it in the upcoming 1.7 firmware update.
