Sony Goes Hands-on with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4

Sony Goes Hands-on with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4 850°
6w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4 with details below.

To quote: The developers of the open-ended RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt describe their bold creation as a "morally indifferent" fantasy world, but it's difficult to illustrate the true breadth of that claim.

The world of The Witcher 3 is violent, desperate, dark, beautiful, and palpably old. It teems with quests and hidden dangers, alongside gritty heroes and the wrongdoers to match them.

Playing Wild Hunt on PS4 for the first time, its world came to life in unexpected ways, but delivered a consistently rewarding introduction to a rich tale.

Those new to the Witcher series need not slink away, overwhelmed - The Witcher 3 is designed with you in mind. It begins with a prologue that deftly establishes the important characters and the stakes of the conflict around them.

You play as a slayer of monsters - a Witcher - one in a long line of highly-trained, mutated beings that seek out and destroy threats against humanity. This background has gifted (or cursed) hero Geralt of Rivia with an unnaturally long life, and a set of skills suitable for his profession.

At the onset of The Witcher 3's story, Geralt and his old master Vesemir...

Video: Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt Begins Today

Video: Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt Begins Today 50°
111w ago - Gearbox Software Writer Anthony Burch has announced alongside a video that Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt begins today.

To quote: Hey there, Anthony Burch from Gearbox here! Sir Hammerlock had told me that in the past he wrote his PlayStation fans a letter, so naturally when I mentioned I was writing this blog post he jumped at the opportunity to do it for me. Sucker! He's all book smarts.

Salutations, Vault Hunters!

Sir Hammerlock here, with a cracking proposal for you. Being the oh-so-well-armed badass you are, you've already saved the world, found a pirate's treasure, and spectacularly murdered your way to the top of a badass leaderboard or two. But.

Have you - he asked, pausing for dramatic effect - have you ever fought a Stalker the size of a small building? Have you ever fought a mystical shaman bandit who can level up his companions at will? Have you ever hunted down Scaylions, Boroks, Spores and Savages?




As you have not yet joined me on my excursion to the brutal continent of Aegrus, I shall pre-emptively answer on your behalf: "No, Sir Hammerlock," you say. "I have yet to do any of these things. Pray tell - how could a no-nonsense brigand like myself experience...
 

Assassin's Creed III PS3: On The Hunt In The American Frontier

Assassin's Creed III PS3: On The Hunt In The American Frontier 50°
129w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has explored Assassin's Creed III for PS3 today going on the hunt in the American Frontier.

To quote: The frontier of Assassin's Creed III offers an incredible bounty of wildlife for a skilled and dedicated hunter. The wilderness positively sprawls before Connor, ensuring that its boundless resources are always available.

Adventure awaits beyond the protective city walls of Boston, and I'd like to give you a glimpse of a tiny fraction of what you can expect to find within the forests and glades of the frontier.

Let's begin with the simpler game Connor can capture, and a few examples of how he can put them to use.

The animals pictured in the image above can be found roaming the countryside in AC3, and you'll find them the easiest to catch. Hares, foxes, deer, raccoons and beavers shouldn't present much danger to a canny trapper like Connor, but these animals (so frequently preyed upon by the larger predators) can be incredibly skittish and will bolt if they detect a human presence.

Maintaining such a close relationship with nature has afforded Connor some unique abilities that you can exploit to make hunting easier. Activating Eagle Sense will enable Connor to detect nearby clues which, when investigated, will identify...
 

Can't Make it to E3? Try the Uncharted 2 Online Hunt Instead!

Can't Make it to E3? Try the Uncharted 2 Online Hunt Instead! 100°
301w ago - Tonight Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced news of an Uncharted 2 Online Hunt contest for those unable to attend E3.

To quote: As you're reading this, your PlayStation.Blog team is currently neck deep in tamales at our E3 Meet-up.

As attendees showed up, we not only invited the first 100 into our press conference, we also presented the first 200 with an Uncharted 2 Nathan Drake-style long-sleeve shirt, perfect for a half-tuck.

While I'm sure we're having a lot of fun (we'll report back soon, with pics), we don't want those of you who couldn't make it to feel left out.

While we were planning this meetup, we decided to "over order" the schwag: extra Uncharted 2 beta codes, extra shirts, and of course, extra schwag bags. Whoops!

Here's how we're going to give them out to you, our dear readers:

On Friday (9am Pacific), we're going to ask a question about Uncharted 2. Be one of the first 300 to answer it, and you win. Simple!

Actually, it's not *that* simple - because that question isn't really easy. So here's what you're going to want to do to have a chance: This Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 9am we'll be asking some easier-to-solve Uncharted...
