FuturLab Announces Velocity Ultra is Out Today on PlayStation 3

23w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced today that Velocity Ultra is out today on PlayStation 3.

To quote: Hello folks! I'm excited to say that the multiple award-winning Velocity Ultra is available today on the mighty PlayStation 3 for just $7.49 $9.99!

At full 1080p 60fps, it's a hypnotic experience playing on a big TV, and gives the awesome soundtrack produced by Joris de Man of Killzone fame a chance to shine too!

Developed and published by the talented team at Curve Studios, Velocity Ultra on PS3 is a perfect conversion that feels great on DualShock 3.

Me confirming that the PS3 version is indeed awesome. What, you've never heard of it?

Those of you not familiar with Velocity Ultra should know that it combines shoot 'em-up action, speed runs and cunning spatial puzzles in a way never seen before, and this combination of clever mechanics and no nonsense fun delighted pretty much everyone that came into contact with it on PS Vita.

So we're incredibly excited that Velocity Ultra is now a full PS3 title which includes perhaps (actually, definitely) the best titled platinum trophy ever: 'Show Thumb Respect.'

Teleporting ahead... With a host of 9/10 review scores from the likes of Edge Magazine...
 

Killzone Shadow Fall: Ultra High Bitrate PS4 Multiplayer Footage

250°
24w ago - Guerrilla Technical Director Michiel van der Leeuw shared some Killzone Shadow Fall ultra high bitrate PS4 multiplayer video footage today!

To quote: Killzone Shadow Fall has been built from the ground up for PS4, and the response to the gameplay footage so far has been overwhelmingly positive.

Unfortunately, there are limitations to streamed video on the internet, and many of the clips and trailers we've released thus far aren't being viewed in the best possible fidelity and framerate.

In order to properly demonstrate the framerate and resolution we achieve in Shadow Fall's multiplayer, we've captured and lightly compressed new footage that we're not offering through a video sharing service. Instead, we ask that you download and locally view the high-resolution, uncompressed footage directly from from us.

Important note: Please use a video player with hardware acceleration when viewing the footage. We recommend Windows Media Player for Windows users and QuickTime Player for Mac users.

Do not use a non-accelerated player (such as VLC Media Player) because the framerate and resolution of this movie are simply too high and will likely cause choppy playback.

Sony Announces Gravity Crash Ultra is Coming Soon to PS Vita

34w ago - Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray announced today via Sony's blog that Gravity Crash Ultra is coming soon to PS Vita.

To quote: Back in 2009 we released Gravity Crash for PlayStation 3, a love letter to classic '80s shooter gaming.

The game was a labor of love for our small team, a team that wanted to produce a title with precision controls, high definition visuals and memorable sound but remain a modern-day interpretation of retro arcade gameplay.

If you're unfamiliar with the game, Gravity Crash is a side-scrolling space shooter featuring well over 40 levels, a host of enemy types and five major boss battles.

We here at Just Add Water are excited to reveal that we're now working on a native PS Vita version of Gravity Crash, which will retain that all important 60 frames a second speed with native PS Vita graphics running at the full 960 x 544 resolution, making the most of that stunning OLED screen - we're really excited about how vivid and rich Vita makes our game look.

To us, PS Vita is the number one platform for the game - the bite-sized level design and clear structure making it the ideal game to play on your daily commute, and the system's controls - with the dual analog sticks and touch-screen - allow for pixel-perfect precision in both the...
