12w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has shared a video today recapping the PS4 / PlayStation 4 announcement featuring some of PlayStation's Top Game Creators below today.
To quote: One week ago, PlayStation 4 was announced in New York City in a presentation streamed by more than 12 million gamers.
We met the new DualShock 4 controller, soaked up some impressive hardware specs and services, and watched a barrage of upcoming PS4 games, from inFAMOUS: Second Son to Bungie's new title Destiny.
During the presentation, Lead System Architect Mark Cerny remarked that the PS4 was made "by game creators, for game creators."
To test that theory, we met with two of PlayStation's top game creators, SCE World Wide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida and SCEA World Wide Studios Senior Vice President Scott Rohde, to see which of PS4′s new features has them most inspired.
24w ago - Atlus Marketing Manager Robyn Mukai has proclaimed that Persona 4 Golden is PS Vita's top-rated game today and shared a video trailer below.
To quote: It goes without saying that PlayStation.Blog readers are the some of the savviest, most informed gamers out there. So it almost seems silly to tell you that since its launch on November 20th, Persona 4 Golden has held the honor of being the highest-rated PS Vita title ever according to Metacritic and Gamerankings. Are you surprised?
Of course not, because you know P4G's immersive 100+ hour adventure backwards and forwards. You know the grounded, relatable characters that are at turns emotional, then hilarious. (Trial of the Dragon, anyone?) You're more than proficient at finding, fusing, and customizing all the best, strongest Personas to handle Kanji's steamy bathhouse boss battle.
You've memorized the list of upgrades and new content that have helped bring Persona 4 Golden to even greater heights of critical success than the beloved PlayStation 2 version it's based on. We know you know all this and so have no desire to pump this blog post full of extraneous information.
HOWEVER, as you may have a few less sophisticated...
53w ago - Devil's Details Director Steve Oldacre has announced today that Table Top Tanks will be bringing explosive AR to PS Vita on May 22, 2012 with a video trailer below!
To quote: I'm Steve and I'd love to tell you about the latest great PS Vita Augmented Reality game Table Top Tanks, which we developed at Devil's Details in Sheffield, UK.
When we were asked if we'd like to develop Table Top Tanks by our friends at SCEE we couldn't believe our luck: Who doesn't like blowing stuff up with Tanks? And we got to play with and help develop PlayStation's AR technology too. So, we said "Yes please!" and got down to work.
So, what's in Table Top Tanks? Firstly, there are the tanks: They're quite quick, nimble and fun to drive and you can choose from 10 different colors.
Their main cannon is pretty powerful and you can upgrade its shell type by running over pickups; my favorite is the bouncing missile - they're great fun to spray into the edge of the arena and watch them cause carnage and confusion as they bounce around.
To get you started playing the game we've included a single player campaign, which will teach you how to play and challenge your tank skills.
But the real fun comes making your own maps using the simple editor. You...

114w ago - 2K Games Community Manager Ronnie Singh has posted up a video today announcing that Top Spin 4 for PS3 is serving up PlayStation Move with Stereoscopic 3D tomorrow.
To quote: I'm here today to share some details for Top Spin 4, in stores tomorrow, March 15th in the US and March 18th internationally.

Top Spin is one of my favorite video game franchises because it truly redefines the way you experience the sport of tennis.
Intuitive controls make gameplay immediately accessible, yet deep and rewarding for the tennis experts who want to plan their strategy and target their opponent's weaknesses.
