56w ago - Sony Contributing Editor Julien Bourey has shared details today from David Cage, who talks about Quantic's supernatural epic Beyond: Two Souls below!
To quote: There are few forthcoming PlayStation 3 titles that are quite so keenly anticipated as Beyond: Two Souls, the latest project from Quantic Dream - the idiosyncratic French developer behind acclaimed 2010 adventure Heavy Rain.
Following the story of young Jodie Holmes (played by Hollywood starlet Ellen Page) and her mysterious supernatural companion, Aiden, it lit up E3 earlier this year with its stunning reveal trailer.
We've not heard too much since, so we caught up with Quantic's founder, David Cage, at Paris Games Week for a quick progress update.
We've not heard too much about Beyond since its E3 reveal back in June. Is development going well?
David Cage: Development is going very well. Indeed, it's nice to go to all these shows but we also have to make the game! We're advancing - we're now a few weeks off the alpha version. It's always a very critical moment in the development of a game since it's the first time all the game data is assembled in a complete version.
This first version is often not very playable, but it's the first time you can see the "complete"...

To quote: In one day, we will release Dishonored, our new first-person action game developed by the talented team at Arkane Studios. Dishonored puts you in the role of Corvo Attano, bodyguard of the Empress of Dunwall.
A pretty good gig... until you're falsely accused of killing her, kidnapping her daughter, and subsequently imprisoned and tortured by the sinister Lord Regent. Despite this, you remain the best hope for saving Dunwall, where plague is rampant and the city is on the verge of dystopia.
Early in your adventure, you will receive "The Outsider's Mark" – a mysterious tattoo on your left hand that grants you supernatural abilities. As you progress through the game, this mark will allow you to unlock new abilities, each of which can be upgraded to a second level for improved functionality.
Below is a look at two of the development team's favorite abilities:
