New PlayStation 3 games:
This October PlayStation Plus will be bringing another huge title to our members - Ubisoft's FPS masterpiece Far Cry 3.
In this open world adventure you take on the role of Jason Brody, a young man stranded on the lawless tropical paradise of Rook Island, a place ruled by piracy and misery.
After escaping the clutches of the mentally unstable, slave trading, pirate leader Vaas, Jason must transform himself from coward to killer in an attempt to save his family and friends.
Next up, from the very talented team at Black Forest Games we have eccentric platformer Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, the successor to the 1987 Commodore 64 title The...
60w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with Street Fighter X Tekken for the PS Vita handheld console.
To quote: I recently spent some hands-on time with a near-complete version of Street Fighter X Tekken for PS Vita, ahead of its October 23rd PSN and retail launch.
And I've gotta say, it's the spitting image of its PS3 bigger brother with big, bold characters and detailed backgrounds running at PS Vita's native screen resolution. But peer underneath those pretty graphics and you'll find a wealth of new extras that make this the definitive version of Capcom's crossover fighter.
The game comes equipped with every DLC fighter from the PS3 version - including PlayStation exclusives Cole McGrath, Kuro, Toro, Mega Man and Pac-Man, of course - as well as alternate costumes for every character in the base roster.
Another nice touch is the ability to customize your character's costume color, then share it with friends via PS Vita's integrated geo-social app "near." It's also worth noting that any DLC costumes or Gems you purchased for the PS3 version will port over to the PS Vita version at no extra cost.
PS Vita's front touchscreen is leveraged in several ways, most notably to create virtual buttons on the screen that you can reposition, resize,...
97w ago - Today Capcom Group Brand Manager Grant Luke has announced alongside a video trailer that Pac-Man and Mega Man are joining Street Fighter X Tekken's PlayStation exclusives.
To quote: Street Fighter X Tekken's roster is already bursting with fan favorites from both sides, and today we can add two more iconic characters to the list - and in this case, they're exclusive to PS3 and PS Vita players...
Two iconic mascots, Pac-Man and Mega Man, join the fray with existing PlayStation exclusives Cole, Kuro and Toro.
However, both mascots arrive in altered forms to create battles unique to Street Fighter X Tekken; Pac-Man rides Tekken's Mokujin, while Mega Man references the "classic" bad box art from the original US Mega Man.
Street Fighter X Tekken for the PS3 launches March 6, with the PS Vita to follow!
109w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some preview videos of Capcom's 2012 PS3 video game line-up, including Street Fighter X Tekken, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and more below!

Read on to learn more about this eclectic mix of games, and leave your questions in the comments so we can provide more details!
Street Fighter X Tekken
First, we sat down with Capcom's resident fighting expert Seth Killian to discuss the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken, which blends the fluid 2D elegance of Street Fighter with the rough-and-tumble brawling of Tekken. We were particularly curious to learn about Gems, which work as customizable loadouts for your fighters, and how inFAMOUS 2's Cole McGrath will stack up in battle. Watch the video for more on this eagerly anticipated PS3 and PS Vita fighter.
