7w ago - Ubisoft Sofia Producer Momchil Valentinov Gindyanov announced the Assassin's Creed Liberation HD PS3 release date and some additional details below today.
To quote: Greetings, PlayStation Assassins! We're very excited to announce that Assassins Creed Liberation HD will be coming to PS3 via PlayStation Store on 15th January 2014.
When we set out to do Liberation HD, our objective was simple: improve upon what worked on the Vita and adapt the gameplay and missions to be the most fun and enjoyable they could be. As a result, each mission has been reworked in order to improve its pacing, and the challenge it poses to the player.
Liberation is set in New Orleans between 1765 and 1780, in the period between the end of the French and Indian War, up to the middle of the American Revolution.
Liberation tells the story of Aveline; a female Assassin of mixed French and African heritage. Brought up in a world of privilege and contrasts, Aveline becomes a strong-willed woman and an avid opponent of slavery.
Recruited to the Assassins by an escaped slave, Aveline joins the struggle against the Templars as they try to take control of New Orleans following France's handover of the city to Spain. Striking hard and fast, she is instrumental in the Louisiana Rebellion that forces...

12w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke has announced release date details for Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut on both PS3 and PS Vita below today.
To quote: Hey everyone, Rob here, representing the fine men and women of Curve studios in London. I'm very happy to announce that Lone Survivor will be out this coming Tuesday, the 24th of September.
Lone Survivor was originally released for the PC last year by indie developer Jasper Byrne. After eight months of work with Jasper on the PS3 and PS Vita versions, we're very happy to say that we've created the definitive version of this game.
Jasper describes the game as a "Psychological Survival Adventure." It has all the hallmarks of classic survival horror games - high on atmosphere and low on available sources of ammunition.
Players can choose to use stealth or firepower to deal with the monsters in Lone Survivor. Depending on player choices, the game can play out very differently, with many optional scenes and different endings.
For the PlayStation version, we started with simple upgrades, like adding touch support on Vita and improving the lighting system... and things spiralled from there!
We've added over twenty new items, new endings, and new game locations. All of them have been...
36w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore revealed a release date and hero heads for Puppeteer on PS3 today alongside a fresh video trailer below.
To quote: I'm just back from the wonderful city of San Francisco and the 2013 Game Developers Conference.
Whilst I was there, I met with some members of the press to give them an exclusive look at the first two acts in Puppeteer, and also share an exciting gameplay reveal... Hero Heads!
As Kutaro, you'll find all sorts of amazing heads to act as your noggin as you journey to get your head back from Moon Bear King. Be careful to collect and keep the right ones, as some have the power to change and shape the world around you, while others unlock bonus stages - adding even more adventure and hilarity to this dark and fantastical tale!
I'm excited to finally let the cat out of the bag (no, not Ying-Yang...I mean a metaphorical cat) about four very special heads that Kutaro will encounter on his journey and aid him in his quest. Each Hero Head possesses a power that once belonged to one of the four legendary "Moon Heroes" who fought valiantly to protect the Moon Goddess from being overthrown by the evil Moon Bear King.
Alas, their powers were no match for Moon Bear King's twelve generals who ultimately defeated...
67w ago - Following up on the North American date, today Sony Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has confirmed a European release date for Sports Champions 2 as well.
Below are the details, to quote: Hello, this is Senior Producer Jeremy Ray with a message all the way from San Diego Studio to let you all know that Sports Champions 2 will be available from 31st October 2012 across the PAL region.
In about two short months you will be able to play the much anticipated sequel to the first Sports Champions, introducing Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, Bowling and the new Archery event.
Since we are getting so close I'd like to take this opportunity to give a little update on the game. Right now the team is primarily focused on squashing bugs and adding some last minute polish. The finish line is in sight and we are very excited to finally get Sports Champions 2 into living rooms all around the world.
Once done, we hope to be able to take a quick breather before getting back at it again with some post-release support. I hope to be able to give some more information about that after launch.
Here's a reminder of some of the great content that will be...
