Capcom Confirms Ultra Street Fighter IV is Out Today on PS3

Capcom Confirms Ultra Street Fighter IV is Out Today on PS3 50°
39w ago - Capcom Europe Community Manager David Hinds confirmed that Ultra Street Fighter IV is officially out today on PS3!

To quote: Hi everyone, my name's David Hinds, and I'm the fighting game community manager here at Capcom Europe. I'm pleased to confirm that the digital upgrade for Ultra Street Fighter IV is available to download from PlayStation Store today.

This is certainly the most definitive Street Fighter IV game you'll ever need to own, as we've added in extra features. Here's a rundown of what's new.

Firstly, we've added five new characters to the game, all with very different play styles and move sets:

• Elena (previously from Street Fighter III), who only uses her feet to attack using the dancing fighting style of Capoeira to create a tricky high/low mix-up game.

• Rolento, who made his first appearance as a boss character in Final • Fight, has great mobility options, and uses multi-hitting specials that utilize his long range fighting stick.

• Hugo, also from Final Fight but more famously from Street Fighter III, is a gigantic grappler who takes the top spot of being the largest character in the game - he's slow but powerful!

• Poison (also of Final Fight fame), with her deadly projectiles and whip attacks make her one of the...
 

Capcom on Balancing Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 3

Capcom on Balancing Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 3 50°
40w ago - Capcom Senior Online Community Specialist Peter Rosas shared details today on balancing Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 3 below.

To quote: What's up guys? Peter Rosas here; some of you may better know me as "ComboFiend." I'm the Fighting Game Community Specialist here at Capcom USA and have acted as the Associate Director of Battle Design on Ultra Street Fighter IV (USFIV).

First and foremost, let me say it's definitely an honor for me to be on the official PlayStation Blog to talk to you guys about how the character specific battle balance changes for USFIV were decided upon and what you can expect to see in USFIV.

For those who may not be aware, the entire reason USFIV was made was due to ever-mounting requests from fans. They let us know that although a lot of characters had a possibility of winning in Super Street Fighter IV AE ver.2012, the gap between the highest and lowest ranked characters was a tad noticeable.

Additionally, the characters that were regarded in the dreaded "bottom five" category had an almost zero chance of ever winning a high level tournament. Since it was the fans who requested the game to be balanced further, we figured "who better would know what Ryu or Ken needs to win than those who are grinding with them every day online?" And with...
 

Atomicom Unveils The Art of Switch Galaxy Ultra on PS4, PS Vita

Atomicom Unveils The Art of Switch Galaxy Ultra on PS4, PS Vita 50°
42w ago - Atomicom Managing Director Gary Nichols unveils the art of Switch Galaxy Ultra on PS4 and PS Vita with details below.

To quote: Greetings - Gary from Atomicom here with an update on Switch Galaxy Ultra, our insanely-fast, reaction-based arcade game that's been developed as an update to our critically acclaimed PlayStation Mobile title Switch Galaxy.

We've been off the radar a bit as we had our heads down squeezing every last drop of art, code, and blood into the game and it's shaped up to be something we're very proud of. Both the PS4 and PS Vita versions are running in super smooth 60 FPS with the PS4 version at 1080p.

Both feature online multiplayer with two modes of play for up to four players, and we've incorporated cross play so you can compete against your buddies across PS4 and PS Vita. We also have cross buy and cloud save so everyone with a PS4 and Vita combo is getting a real treat.

Finally, there are also seven player ships, all fully upgradable and a ton of fiendishly fast levels - plus an endless survival mode. If that wasn't enough, we also have an awesome twenty two-page comic that unlocks as you play through the game. More on that shortly.

We've been working with WipeOut Co-Creator and Psygnosis art legend Jim Bowers, who has taken time out from...

FuturLab Announces Velocity Ultra is Out Today on PlayStation 3

FuturLab Announces Velocity Ultra is Out Today on PlayStation 3 50°
68w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced today that Velocity Ultra is out today on PlayStation 3.

To quote: Hello folks! I'm excited to say that the multiple award-winning Velocity Ultra is available today on the mighty PlayStation 3 for just $7.49 $9.99!

At full 1080p 60fps, it's a hypnotic experience playing on a big TV, and gives the awesome soundtrack produced by Joris de Man of Killzone fame a chance to shine too!

Developed and published by the talented team at Curve Studios, Velocity Ultra on PS3 is a perfect conversion that feels great on DualShock 3.

Me confirming that the PS3 version is indeed awesome. What, you've never heard of it?

Those of you not familiar with Velocity Ultra should know that it combines shoot 'em-up action, speed runs and cunning spatial puzzles in a way never seen before, and this combination of clever mechanics and no nonsense fun delighted pretty much everyone that came into contact with it on PS Vita.

So we're incredibly excited that Velocity Ultra is now a full PS3 title which includes perhaps (actually, definitely) the best titled platinum trophy ever: 'Show Thumb Respect.'

Teleporting ahead... With a host of 9/10 review scores from the likes of Edge Magazine...
