Video: Behind the Scenes with the SCEA Music Department

Video: Behind the Scenes with the SCEA Music Department 50°
274w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a behind-the-scenes video today of the SCEA Music Department, as follows:

If you ever though that music in PlayStation games is an afterthought, think again. I spent an afternoon with a trio from the music team here at SCEA and found out quite the contrary.

Games like UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, inFAMOUS and the upcoming God of War III are proving just how amazing game music can be.

This definitely ranks up there with one of my favorite interviews I've been a part of. You've already met Jonathan Mayer. This time we're adding Senior Music Manager Clint Bajakian and Music Editor Scott Hanau, who discuss all things music here at PlayStation.

In this six-minute video, the team touches on topics including what it's like to work alongside game developers like Naughty Dog, the huge orchestral sessions at Skywalker Sound and beyond, how the music was crafted for the UNCHARTED 2 train sequence, the percussion in God of War III and much more.

And you'll also notice UNCHARTED 2 composer Greg Edmonson doing his thing along with Leslie Ann Jones, Director of Music Recording and Scoring for Skywalker Sound. Hope you enjoy it!

276w ago - Today Sony Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a behind-the-scenes video with the God of War Collection PS3 developer, as follows:

One day. That's all there's left to wait until you'll be slashing it up with your Blades of Chaos, soaking up orbs and hording Trophies like nobody's business in God of War Collection.

So to get you riled up while you wait, we have a very cool treat – a director's commentary-style video with the team(s) behind this incredibly impressive remastered Blu-ray collection that includes God of War and God of War II in glorious HD, along with two full sets of Trophies and more.

Joining me via PlayStation Eye is developer Bluepoint Games President Andy O'Neil and CTO Marco Thrush, along with Santa Monica Studios Director of Technology Tim Moss.

The trio dishes over five brand-new minutes of HD footage, revealing some great info on the development of God of War Collection and how they made the magic happen.

Today Siliconera.com (linked above) have uncovered a patent by Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. for a Mystery Science Theater 3000 style interactive TV.

To quote: "They recently filed a patent that mixes Netflix Party on Xbox Live and Mystery Science Theater 3000. The document actually mentions Mystery Science Theater 3000 as inspiration for the invention in the background section.

This proposed program puts an overlay on top of a "media presentation" like a TV show or movie and allows players to interact with it while the presentation is playing.

Sony mentions other applications like a Where's Waldo style game where you can hunt for characters and sponsorships like giving players Coca-Cola cans to lob instead of tomatoes."
