Dead or Alive 5 Plus on PlayStation Vita Today, Team Ninja Q&A

100°
102w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared a Q&A from Team Ninja for Dead or Alive 5 Plus which arrives on PlayStation Vita today.

To quote: Dead or Alive, Team Ninja's long-running fighting game franchise, is getting its first PS Vita installment today in the form of Dead or Alive 5 Plus. How does one pack a game of this magnitude into a portable form factor?

Do any concessions need to be made to keep everything steady at 60FPS? What new features can we expect, given PS Vita's unique capabilities? We synced up with Yohei Shimbori of Team Ninja, who graciously answered these questions and more.

PlayStation.Blog: What has been your experience in terms of developing Dead or Alive 5 Plus for PS Vita? Have you had to make many concessions, or were you able to port the entire PS3 game over with minimal changes?

Yohei Shimbori, Director, Team Ninja: Certain elements of Dead or Alive 5 Plus (DOA5+) were relatively smooth in porting it to the PS Vita from the PS3. However, as you may notice from games already on the market today, a complete port in terms of graphics and physics remains a challenge which was also the case for DOA5+.

Fluid fighting motion and stellar graphics are all staples of the Dead or Alive franchise, so delivering anything...
 

Naughty Dog: Uncharted 3: Oddball PlayStation 3 DLC is Out Today

50°
102w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has announced today that Uncharted 3: Oddball PlayStation 3 DLC is out today.

Below are the details, to quote: The UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Free-to-Play launched a few weeks ago and we've seen a healthy uplift to our community, to the tune of over three hundred and fifty thousand downloads of the Free-to-Play client to date globally.

We're very excited to see our community grow, and we're stoked to keep expanding the world of UNCHARTED to as many people as possible.

To keep that momentum going, as promised, we're making new DLC available for purchase every month until June 2013. This month we're recognizing Extraterrestrial Abductions Day - or a day around it anyway - by unveiling our Oddball themed character parts for your UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer characters.

Why Oddball? Well, these character parts defy classification as they don't quite fit among the numerous other parts we'll have coming out over the next few months, and Extraterrestrial Abductions Day is a bit of an odd holiday anyway. Here's a glimpse at some of the...
 

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct PS3 Out Now, What We Learned

50°
102w ago - Terminal Reality Creative Director Drew Haworth has announced that The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for PS3 is out now with details below.

To quote: When we became aware of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct opportunity with Activision and AMC, we leapt on it. We devised a first-person survival-horror strategy approach and pitched it.

Our game was planned as a labor of love: an endeavor to create a relatively intimate The Walking Dead game experience for fans like us... as well as players new to the series who were looking for a different type of zombie game. Our goal was to create an authentic and compelling experience worthy of the name.

Since then, of course, Telltale has released all the amazing episodes of their deserved Game of the Year, and AMC's series has consistently shattered broadcast television records! So while 'pressure' may be an understatement, we've stayed the course.

And Activision and AMC have been steadfast, wonderful partners in us making the game we set out to make in the first place: a new type of zombie game experience for players that want to take on The Walking Dead's world for a while!

Here are some of the lessons the team learned while developing The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, which is out today on PS3!
I was skeptical,...
 

Video: Carnage Heart EXA Out on PSP / PlayStation Vita Tomorrow

50°
102w ago - Localization Editor and QA Tester Adam Fitch has announced today that Carnage Heart EXA will be hitting both PSP and PlayStation Vita tomorrow alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: Natsume may be best known for publishing the Harvest Moon and Reel Fishing series, but we're always on the lookout for novel and innovative titles for our growing audience.

We plan for 2013 to be a banner year for unique titles, and Carnage Heart EXA, out tomorrow for $29.99, is the first of several PSP titles we'll be bringing to our fans in both North America and Europe.

PlayStation Network lets us bring titles to gamers who are increasingly looking for unique and different types of games. Carnage Heart EXA is just such a game!

Carnage Heart first appeared on PlayStation way back in 1997. Carnage Heart EXA continues the tradition of the franchise with the same style of gameplay, but builds upon it with improved graphics, updated chips, and interface mechanics, and a larger stable of Overkill Engine types.

In addition, this time around players can actually control the OKEs (Overkill Engines)! It's a polished version of the original dream Artdink had, and we're pleased to be working closely with them to bring the game to a worldwide audience....
