Sony Introduces PlayStation Vita (NGP) at E3 2011, Starts at $249 550°
195w ago - Sony's VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has officially introduced the PlayStation Vita (NGP) at E3 2011, and confirmed retail pricing for PSVita starts at $249.

To quote: Just moments ago during our 2011 E3 press conference we proudly unveiled an incredible 2011 software lineup and amazing new PS3 peripherals, and also shed new light on our highly anticipated handheld gaming device, officially named PlayStation Vita (PS Vita).

"Vita," which means "Life" in Latin, was chosen as the name for our next-generation portable entertainment system because it enables a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context.

By blurring the lines between interactive entertainment and reality, our goal was to design a device that offered a revolutionary combination of rich gaming capabilities and social connectivity, bringing users closer to each other and closer to their gaming experiences wherever they are.

Connectivity was a key objective and our goal was to create experiences and content that would challenge the traditional notions of gaming....

Video: CCP Introduces DUST 514, a Persistent Shooter for PS3 50°
195w ago - DUST 514 Community Manager James Egan of CCP has shared an E3 2011 video today introducing a persistent shooter for PS3 called DUST 514.

To quote: I'm the Community Manager for DUST 514, an upcoming title from CCP. This is the first time you'll have seen DUST 514 highlighted on the PlayStation.Blog and we're happy that we can reveal more about our game to you.

DUST 514 is a very different type of game. Yes, many people say this about their respective game titles – everyone thinks their baby is special, right? We really mean it though.

When playing your FPS title of choice, have you ever wished that there was something more to it beyond your rank, weapon unlocks, your kill/death ratio and leaderboard prominence? Those things are all great - but what if those matches you fought in actually meant something?

What if your successes and failures against your opponents impacted the course of events in a vast setting, potentially changed a virtual world and the gameplay experience of thousands of other players? More than that, what if that impact was felt across two separate games - one on PS3 and one on PC/Mac - that share the same sci-fi universe?

196w ago - WeareMinority Creative Director Vander Caballero has introduced Papo & Yo for PS3 on PSN today alongside a video trailer.

To quote: It's my great pleasure to today reveal our first title, Papo & Yo, which we are bringing to the PlayStation Network next year thanks to the support of SCEA's Pub Fund.

I have always wanted to tell the story of my childhood, as the difficulties I lived through shaped the man I've come to be. But telling my story was a major endeavor for me as an artist.

First I had to master videogame design so I could realize my vision; after that, I had to find an appropriate method to tell a difficult story in an engaging way.

And finally, I needed to find a group of people who would believe in me and take the risk to dedicate themselves to a project like this. I'm very lucky to have the great, experienced team I have at Minority, who have completely embraced my initial concept.





But what is my story, and why would someone be interested in it, you ask? Well, the tale told in Papo & Yo is about myself and my father, a good man but also an evil one. Like many, he used alcohol and drugs to cope with a challenging life, and I was caught in the middle of it. The emotional core of this game is...
