To quote: Champions, with eight glorious weeks of God of War: Ascension Multiplayer now etched into the stones of Olympus, it's time to look ahead to what the Oracle has seen in our future.
It's also time to see what the community has achieved thus far - see the infographic along the side of this post (click on it for the full, ultra high-resolution image).
Our God of War Development Team here at SonySantaMonica is working steadfastly on a wide array of additional multiplayer content, including new weapons (plus a powerful fourth weapon class) and armors, large and small maps, and a few other surprises. We'll have more to share later this month.
Today we are releasing our second wave of Multiplayer DLC - the Primordial Weapons - comprised of the Armor of Typhon and the Mercenary Blade. These will be available to purchase today on PSN (search "God of War"), alongside the "Armors of Anarchy" and "Blades of Darkness" released last week. Pay close attention to the Artemis & Thanatos Blades; they have new moves and FX to augment your playing style.
15w ago - Trion Worlds Director of Community Elizabeth Tobey has detailed the weapons of Defiance today alongside a video trailer, which will arrive on PlayStation 3 this April 2nd.
To quote: Defiance, an upcoming massive third person online shooter (set to come to PS3 on April 2nd) has thousands of different weapons that will titillate shooter players no matter their play style. Whether you prefer to snipe from a hilltop or, like myself, run full speed whilst rapidly firing a modified shotgun in the faces of your foes, we have a weapon that will work for you.
Moreover, Defiance has a system that allows you not only to collect new weapons as loot as you traverse the San Francisco Bay area, but has a system that allows you to salvage them such that you can choose particular pieces to trick out a different weapon. Gone are the days when you find an amazing scope on a less powerful gun: the salvage matrix now has your back.
Today we released a trailer detailing some of our more inventive weapon selections. We highlight the Infector (not only does damage but grows boils on your enemies that erupt with monsters that can then wreak havoc on other enemies), the Bio Magnetic Gun (does damage to bad guys, heals the shield of good guys), the Rocket Launcher (come on, who doesn't love those), and the Detonator...

71w ago - Producer Chad Cox has made available a Weapons Training video today for Twisted Metal on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Starting today, we're introducing a video series we call "Twisted Metal University." The goal: Get you up to speed in time for Twisted Metal's February 14th release. That's less than a week away, so we'll have to move fast!
In today's chaotic episode, you'll be (re)introduced you to some of Twisted Metal's fiendish firepower, starting with the EMP Blast, Absorption Shield, Mines, and more. This video also gives you a primer on choosing the right sidearm, whether it's the flesh-shredding shotgun, the devastating magnum revolver, the heat-seeking Swarmer rocket launcher, or the all-powerful Mega Gun.
With a little luck, and a lot of pluck, you'll catapult yourself to the top of the multiplayer leaderboards this February 14th.
Check back soon to learn more killer tricks and tactics for this long-awaited revival.
80w ago - Today Sony Community Manager Phil Wang has revealed the Infantry Weapons available in DUST 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: The handheld weapons are a key part of any MMOFPS and DUST 514 is no exception. There were a few things that were very important to us.
Firstly, we wanted to avoid the feeling of "Vietnam in space" that you sometimes see in sci-fi games. The goal was to create weapons that had recognizable roles but used more advanced technologies than the equivalent weapons of today.
The power of these guns would tear apart a modern day battlefield. In DUST 514 the only way your mercenary can survive the power of these weapons is due to the advanced shielding and armor of the dropsuits they wear. Without them, simply firing these weapons would severely injure or even kill you!
Secondly, it was important to us that the weapons felt like a natural part of the EVE universe. In the same way that the ships in EVE have distinct racial designs and specialties, the weapons of DUST 514 had to encapsulate the values and technology of the race that created them.
The ruthless efficiency of the Caldari, the progressive aesthetics of the Gallente, the resilience and resourcefulness of the Minmatar as well as the proud arrogance of the Amarr...
