Video: Driveclub at Gamescom 2013: The Social Network of Racers

70w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill posted up a video today from Gamescom 2013 showcasing Driveclub, dubbed the social network of racers below.

To quote: Guten tag from Gamescom! I hope you got a chance to see yesterday's press conference, where we saw a glut of new games announced (and finally found out when we can get our own PS4s!).

Sid and I are in Germany, tracking down new info for the latest games. Yesterday, I sat in on a presentation by Col Rodgers, the game director on PS4's upcoming launch exclusive, Driveclub.

He went into detail about Driveclub's social features, the PS Plus Edition of the game, and showed us how Remote Play on PS Vita works.

Rodgers described Driveclub as the "social network for racing games," and this is exemplified by the game's Challenge system. If you feel especially confident about a run on a certain track, with a certain car, even at a certain time of day, you can issue a challenge to your club, sending a notification to their PS4s or to their mobile phones (courtesy of the Driveclub Mobile app).

As they play and try to beat your challenge, they'll rack up points for the club.

Things get interesting when you elect to challenge your other friends, who might not be part of your club. If...
 

Online Features in ModNation Racers: Road Trip for PS Vita

153w ago - Today Product Development Director Erich Waas has shared details on the online features in ModNation Racers: Road Trip for the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: I wanted to give Mark Wilson a break this week so that I could talk about the robust online features in ModNation Racers: Road Trip.

The team here in San Diego created an impressive list of online functionality to take advantage of the WiFi/3G and GPS functionality. This game is intended to let you take advantage of your road trips--whether they're across the country, to another state or just traveling between home and work or school.

More importantly, ModNation Racers: Road Trip was designed to work around your schedule and let you compete with your friends whenever (and wherever) you want.

1. Competitive Localized Leaderboards

When a gamer who has opted to "Use Location Data" posts a lap time to the Leaderboards, that time is connected to their current location. Gamers can personalize their location names (i.e., My Home, My Work, Mark's House Where I Always Win, etc.) for easy reference. These times become part of the Local Leaderboards which gamers can use to compete in a fun arcade-style atmosphere.

Gamers can also select one of their saved locations and view other competitors'...
 

Video: Need for Speed: The Run PS3 - 200 Racers, One Avalanche

174w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has made available some video footage of Need for Speed: The Run on PS3 - featuring 200 racers and one big avalanche!

To quote: Interactive cinemas, fast cars and loud tunes propelled The Run at E3, but all along EA Black Box was quietly scheming to reveal more at Gamescom.

In my play session, I chased after a pearl white Laborghini Aventador down a treacherous mountain road on Independence Pass in Colorado. Then it happened: I found myself staring at an oncoming avalanche from behind the wheel of my car, plowing and drifting through chaos while I sat comfortably in a dark room at EA's show floor.

I couldn't help but smile after my demo session with Need for Speed: The Run, knowing that I finally got to play a true-to-form Michael-Bay-inspired Hollywood action racer on my PS3.





I got a few minutes with DeLong and picked his brain about a retaining the authenticity and how the high-tech Frostbite rendering engine opens up new storytelling vistas for this action racer.
 

Video: ModNation Racers PS Vita: Modding with Your Fingertips

184w ago - Team RamRod's Brandon Akiaten has posted up a video today spotlighting modding in ModNation Racers for Sony's upcoming PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: As most of you heard at the Sony Press Conference kicking off E3, we are proudly bringing the ModNation franchise to the much anticipated PlayStation Vita. It was a great opportunity to share with you all some of the things our team has in store.

For starters, the ModNation Racers PS3 Community has created in just over a year's time over 2 million Mods, Karts and Tracks. All of which will be available to anyone who purchases ModNation Racers (Working Title) for PS Vita on day one.

That means by using the online capabilities and processing power of the PS Vita, the ModNation team has made it possible for users to download any PS3 user generated creation and bring it with them on the go.

The team has also made huge strides in creating a ground up effort to make a ModNation title that takes full advantage of the PlayStation Vita features. As mentioned in the Press Conference, this title is not a port of the PSP or PS3.

On the creation side, we showed that in a matter of seconds how fast and easy it is to create a track by drawing it with your finger.
