182w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman had some time to speak with Localization Producer Ted Tsung today, and shared more about the new PlayStation Move shooter collection Time Crisis: Razing Storm.

To quote: It's scientific fact: Adding pirates to anything increases its fun factor exponentially.

It holds true for Time Crisis: Razing Storm, the new PlayStation Move arcade shooter collection that packs more play modes on one Blu-ray Disc than most games manage in three sequels - in this case, DeadStorm Pirates and Time Crisis 4.

We caught up with Localization Producer Ted Tsung to learn more about what Japanese gamers call "Big 3 Gun Shooting."





Let's start with the titular Razing Storm, which replicates Namco's trigger-happy shooter in its full arcade glory. Using the PlayStation Move, you and a partner tear terrorists to tatters with SMGs and riot shields and blast massive robot bosses with rocket launchers.

This PS3-exclusive edition adds a new off-the-rails Story campaign where you can freely move using an analog stick FPS-style, as well as throw grenades, swap weapons, and engage in mission objectives. You'll...

Video: Time Crisis: Razing Storm for PS3 and PlayStation Move

199w ago - Today Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a hand-on preview video of Time Crisis: Razing Storm for PS3 and PlayStation Move.

To quote: Namco Bandai's upcoming PlayStation Move shooter will include three full games on one Blu-ray disc.

The centerpiece, of course, being Time Crisis: Razing Storm, the newest and most sophisticated game in the Time Crisis shooter series.

Time Crisis: Razing Storm includes a fast-paced "on rails" Arcade mode that enables one player - or two, in same-screen co-op play - to blast hordes of terrorists, soldiers, and sci-fi battle mechs.

In the Arcade mode, it's all about unloading heavy firepower at anything and everything in your way: you aim by pointing the Move, shoot by pulling the trigger, and reload behind a protective riot shield by pressing and holding the Move button with your thumb.

The PlayStation Move controls felt precise and responsive. But if you're a poor marksman, or saddled with a novice co-op partner, fear not: the Arcade mode mercifully includes unlimited continues.





Time Crisis: Razing Storm's Arcade mode has you mowing down hordes of enemy combatants, and support two-player,...

To quote: Due to the economic crisis the demand for PC has decreased. According to Asus this is the reason for the company's losses.

Furthermore too high stocks of notebooks and LCDs as well as the currency fluctuation of the Euro have contributed to that situation.

In order to be in the black again Asus wants to initiate cuts. Particularly executives and managers are supposedly affected.
