11w ago - 8-4 Ltd Executive Director Mark MacDonald introduced Mighty No. 9 for PlayStation 3 today with details below.
To quote: What are you gonna be doing come Spring of 2015? No plans yet? Well here's one appointment to put on your calendar a bit early: Mighty No. 9!
Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game coming to the PlayStation 3 (and maybe PS4 and even Vita! But more on that later...) that harkens back to the best aspects of the old 8- and 16-bit classics many of us grew up with, only evolved and transformed into something only possible today.
As the titular hero (known as Beck), you'll need to run, jump, and blast your way through your fellow Mighty Number robots, stealing their powers to fuel your unique skill to transform your body into new shapes for added abilities!
Maybe your limbs could become giant magnets, enabling you to walk up walls or rip away enemy shields... Or maybe extendible spring-loaded hands would let you to activate far-away switches or work as a grappling hook...
Or a tank-like body might let you easily cross over spikes or push objects around the levels... These are just a few possibilities we're considering (the game is still in the design phase), but you get the idea!
15w ago - Following up on Part 1, today Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore returns with the second installment introducing the boss battles of Puppeteer on PS3 below.
To quote: Hello everyone! I just got back from Germany where I had the amazing opportunity to discuss Puppeteer with so many people while at Gamescom. And, since Puppeteer is on the brain, I figured why not showcase the rest of the bosses in the game to you all.
So, take a look at the final six Generals as well as some small details about the Moon Bear King. Puppeteer is almost out and I can't wait for everyone to lose their head!
Appearance: Not a typical, solidly built Western dragon, but a Chinese-style flying, serpentine beast, with gemstones in his hands.
Personality: Brought up on the streets of the city of the Moon, Dragon is a wise guy. He is always saying "forget about it", although no one ever does and Dragon makes sure they don't.
Relationships: Dragon obeys the MBK like a "Made Man" to a "Don." Though Kutaro does not realize it, it was Dragon who snatched his soul from Earth and brought to the Moon.

17w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore introduced the Boss Battles of Puppeteer on PS3 (Part 1) today, with details below as follows:
The stage is set, and the show's about to begin for Puppeteer! I'm excited to share some of my craziness with you today.
But, before Puppeteer is released across the globe, I wanted to provide a glimpse of whom our friend, Kutaro, is really up against as he battles the Moon Bear King's (MBK) Generals. So, take a look below and get acquainted with six of the 13 bosses from Puppeteer.
Can't picture yourself going up against the Generals? No need to worry! We created these lovely snippets showcasing the magic you will soon experience. Make sure to check back soon to see the final six Generals!
Appearance: A gigantic tiger with a Moonstone shard for his left canine. His tail ends with a spiked iron ball, like a mace.
Personality: A true paper tiger, kowtowing to the tough, and browbeating the weak. Reflecting his personality, General Tiger has a slightly lewd turn of phrase. Earlier in his life, he was a complete coward.
Relationships: Tiger is overawed and obsequious to the Moon Bear King to an unnecessary degree. He treats the Witch, Ying Yang, the puppets, and the grubs with...
17w ago - Spiral House Creative Director Kevin Oxland has officially introduced PlayStation Vita Pets on Sony's blog today, confirming the PS Vita title is coming in 2014.
To quote: Hey everyone! My name is Kevin Oxland and I'm creative director at Spiral House. I'm very excited to be here today to finally announce our new game with Sony for the PlayStation Vita. Please welcome PlayStation Vita Pets!
PlayStation Vita Pets is no ordinary pet game! We've done our best to really make this feel like a PlayStation game - with 'game' being the important word there. We set out to make something that was more than just a pet sim - we wanted to make something that felt like a real game, with characters, fun and adventure, so that's exactly what we did.
We also wanted to focus on the dogs themselves, which may seem an obvious thing to say, but making them move, act and speak (!) in a very convincing way for the scope of the game we had in mind, was not easy.
Making humans walk and move realistically in videos games is one thing, but creating truly convincing dogs for today's demanding younger gamers, really is something else. This, we felt, could only be achieved using the power and features of the...
