Video: Sony Raises Curtain on Puppeteer, a New PS3 Adventure!

133w ago - SCE Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore has officially raised the curtain on a new PS3 adventure game entitled Puppeteer today!

Below are the details and a video, as follows: Let's get the introductions out the way so can get right to the exciting stuff.

My name is Gavin, and for the past nine years I have been living in Tokyo working for Sony's Worldwide Studios.

Recently, I and a small - but incredibly talented - group of game makers have been hard at work on a new PlayStation 3 game called Puppeteer.

I'm excited to be able to talk directly to you guys, the heart of PlayStation, and give you the heads-up on the game first.

Puppeteer takes place in a magical puppet theatre, owned and run by the slightly eccentric but thoroughly charming Professor Gregorious T. Oswald. His latest production is the weirdly titled "The Perilous Journey of a Boy Named Kutaro."

On one dark, moonlit night, the star of the show, a young boy named Kutaro, is carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle, where the unlucky lad is transformed into a puppet.

Kutaro then displeases the terrible tyrant who duly devours the boy's wooden head and casts away his body. But the headless...
 

Video: Media Molecule's New Project Revealed: Tearaway for PS Vita

133w ago - Media Molecule Studio Director Siobhan Reddy has officially revealed their new project today, dubbed Tearaway for Sony's PlayStation Vita handheld console!

To quote: Tearaway is kind of like a buddy movie. It stars iota, a messenger from a paper dimension, whose envelope head contains an urgent message to deliver... to you!

It's a very special message, and one that's unique for each and every player. In order to read yours, you'll need to take up the role of co-star and, together with iota, journey through the vibrant papery landscape – two buddies going on an epic adventure.

You and iota will travel afar, taking on enemies and helping those in need. You'll conquer adversity and discover magical papery surprises. But in Tearaway, you're holding more than just a PS Vita in your hands - you're holding the paper world itself!

Using the god-like powers inherent to someone who can hold an entire world in their giant hands, you can make your presence felt using a wide range of godly powers that take advantage of all the PS Vita's bells and whistles – some subtle and some epic.

You can shake things up or turn them upside down. A gentle breath from you is a gusty storm. You can even poke your fingers into the back of the PS Vita to tear through into the world...
 

Video: God of War: Ascension PS3 Multiplayer Beta at Gamescom

133w ago - Game Director Todd Papy has revealed a fresh video of God of War: Ascension PS3 Multiplayer Beta at Gamescom 2012 today!

To quote: God of War fans, it's Game Director Todd Papy again with the latest and greatest on God of War: Ascension.

If you saw the on-stage world premiere of our new epic single-player journey at E3, then you're well aware Kratos will be as bad-ass as ever when Ascension hits stores on March 12, 2013.

However, today I'm here to talk more about our ambitious multiplayer mode, a multiplayer experience we are confident will be worthy of the title, God of War.

Back on April 30th, I gave you an in-depth look at how our new multiplayer-mode works, combining the visceral combat and brutal finishing kills from single-player with an intense and fresh online 4v4 competitive mode.

I'm excited to announce today that we will be launching a global multiplayer beta in the near future, available exclusively first to PlayStation Plus subscribers (there may a few other secret inroads).

It's critical to our team that we receive as much community feedback to tune and prime our multiplayer mode for one of the best experiences possible, come launch this March.

Here's a brand-new multiplayer trailer...
 

Video: Sony Reveals Sleeping Dogs Wakes on PS3 Tomorrow

133w ago - Senior Producer Jeff O'Connell has revealed on Sony's PlayStation Blog today that Sleeping Dogs officially wakes on PS3 tomorrow!

To quote: It's been a long journey. Even now, it's hard to believe that Sleeping Dogs launches tomorrow.

It's a little odd given how the game is primarily a single player experience, but I think it's as we start seeing the online leaderboards fill up that the reality sets in: we made it.

It's obviously not the end of our time with the world we spent over five years piecing together, but it definitely marks a turning point - the time when we release a game once named Black Lotus, then True Crime: Hong Kong and finally Sleeping Dogs to you.

From here on Sleeping Dogs isn't living inside a bubble, but instead exists as a part of gaming's ever-growing cultural canvas. How big a part is in your hands - rest assured we have poured our hearts and souls into making our protagonist Wei's world one we feel you will enjoy.

Up to now we've seen a lot of focus on the systems we have crafted - the combat, the driving, the social hub - but we're most excited to see how people receive the story. Wei Shen's triad odyssey is the glue that holds all these other tasty parts together.

With it, Sleeping Dogs goes from being a collection...

133w ago - LightBox Interactive President Dylan Jobe has announced alongside a video that the Starhawk: Free Cypress PS3 Map Pack is incoming with update 1.03 today!

To quote: Some of you may have seen my last blog post about the release of War of the Monsters as a PS Classic for PlayStation 3 and at the end of that post I mentioned the release of our next update for Starhawk was right around the corner!

Well...we are now around that corner and I can tell you that we are "GO" for our global release of the Starhawk 1.03 Update today at 2pm Central Time! I am saying "GO" as if I were a super-cool NASA scientist in the Curiosity control room!

While the release of our 1.03 Update pales in comparison to the massive achievement of landing an SUV-sized robot on Mars (thanks NASA!). The 1.03 release will nonetheless make many Earthlings very happy!

"OK Dylan, what's the patch got?" - Says the snarky gamer from the back corner of the internet. Tons of new stuff! There are player-requested features, an increased level cap, bug-fixes, and of course two new FREE maps on the planet of Cypress! Here's the breakdown of everything we developed for you guys in the 1.03 Update.




Two New Maps on Cypress: Let's jump...
