56w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi is here with this month's Pulse May 2012 edition, which includes Sorcery, Resistance: Burning Skies, Gravity Rush and more!
To quote: This edition of Pulse takes the magic-wand mechanics of Sorcery for a spin.
Check out the arsenal of different spells and combos needed to battle with the PlayStation Move controller through this fast-paced fantasy adventure that pits you against trolls, ghostly soldiers, giant spiders, and the Nightmare Queen.
Also on deck this month are Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier with over 50 weapons (including lethal remote drones) and PS Vita's much-talked-about FPS Resistance: Burning Skies.
Pulse also investigates Gravity Rush this month. This physics-bending action game features fascinating and challenging new combat that you have to see to believe.
Pre-orders at participating retailers include the military DLC pack featuring two extra side missions, two new challenge missions, and military-themed costume for protagonist Kat.
As we approach the middle of the year, the Top 10 takes a look at the most popular downloads thus far in 2012. And Nicolas Cage rides again in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, our star new video release.
88w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a video spotlighting the Resistance 3 Survivor Pack, which includes Invasion Mode, new skins and hits PSN today!
To quote: We're excited to announce the release of the Resistance 3 Survival DLC pack today on the PlayStation Store for $3.99. First and foremost, the Survival DLC pack brings you a new game mode for multiplayer called Invasion.
The Invasion mode forces Human and Chimeran teams to divide their resources with the goal of holding multiple control nodes on the map simultaneously. The more nodes your team holds, the faster you score points - and thus, achieve victory.
There is a lot of deep strategy in determining which nodes to attack, as well as how many players should hang back to defend your nodes while retaining enough offensive force to successfully attack enemy nodes. We hope you enjoy it!
That's not all though - the Survival DLC pack includes special multiplayer skins of some of the major survivors from the game: Herbert, Jonathan, Jean, and Charlie. You'll also get a bonus Resistance 3 Survivor Concept Art Static XMB Theme.
It's been just over a month since we launched Resistance 3, and we hope that you've gotten the chance to jump online and experience the game's multiplayer...
96w ago - Insomniac Games Community Intern Brandon Winfrey has posted up a new PS3 developer diary video today spotlighting the tools in Resistance 3 on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Gamescom has been amazing. However, something is still missing - an unyielding void in the soul of Resistance that needs to be filled. Something cold. Something unyielding. Something... Sledgehammery?
Yes, that's it! We need to show you the Sledgehammer, Resistance 3's brutally blunt new melee weapon. Here - let me summon the video gods and see if they can whip something up for the latest R3 Dev Diary.
By George (or Rey), they've done it! Our all-new Resistance 3 Dev Diary features the first gameplay footage of Capeill's intimate side - intimate as in he's close enough to Grims to smash in their deformed faces with a giant Sledgehammer. It's pretty wicked (except if you're a Grim).
Plus, you will get a detailed look at the human guns at your disposal in the game. Just because they aren't modified with some fancy alien technology doesn't mean they won't plow through the Chimera faster than Rainbow Dash can clear the skies of Ponyville.
Go in-depth with the explosive nuances of the Magnum, the Carbine, and the Marksman, and...
102w ago - Update: Sony has now confirmed PSN Pass to IGN, stating the program requires customers to input a one-time use code to access a game's online capabilities similar to EA's Online Pass.
Today Darko on German site Konsolentreff.net (linked above) has shared an image uncovering Sony's PSN Pass on a Resistance 3 PS3 bundle box.
The text in the image reads as following: "PSN Pass. Network features only available in countries that have PlayStation Store."
While there is currently no official announcement on what PSN Pass is from Sony, Kotaku reports that it may be similar to EA's Online Pass which provides online access to those who either purchase a new copy of a game or those who pay the extra ten bucks to buy their way into networked features.
To quote: "Sony has employed the practice before, selling "Online Entitlement" passes for PSP games SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 and ModNation Racers.
268w ago - An Insomniac Games employee, jstevenson, has written in the NeoGAF boards and confirmed that a Resistance 2 demo will be present during the Sony PlayStation day on May 6, a few days from now.
