Sony Announces Silent Hill: Downpour Comes Full Circle on PS3

Sony Announces Silent Hill: Downpour Comes Full Circle on PS3 300°
165w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has announced that Silent Hill: Downpour is coming full circle on the PS3 entertainment system in an interview below.

To quote: I'm a sucker for horror games, so I jumped at a recent opportunity to watch a short demo of Konami's upcoming PS3 survival-horror epic Silent Hill: Downpour.

In a development applauded by series fans, Downpour strongly emphasizes creeping psychological horror over the twitchy action of recent entries like Silent Hill: Homecoming.

You play as Murphy, a maximum-security inmate with a deeply troubled past. You awaken on the fringes of the cursed town of Silent Hill after your prison transport bus crashes.

True to Silent Hill form, you'll spend the rest of the game evading the town's monstrous denizens while piecing together Murphy's deepest secrets – including the dark truths that brought him to Silent Hill.

I spoke with Producer Devin Shatsky, who answered some key questions while playing through the first section of the game. If you have questions, leave them in the comments and I'll do my best to get you answers!

PlayStation.Blog: From an interface perspective, how is Downpour different from the last game in the series, Homecoming?

Sony Details MLB 12 The Show for PS3 and PS Vita Consoles

Sony Details MLB 12 The Show for PS3 and PS Vita Consoles 300°
169w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared details today as part of an interview on MLB 12 The Show for PS3 and PS Vita consoles.

To quote: At a holiday showcase event in New York City last night, I took a few swings with an early build of MLB 12 The Show, including the PlayStation Move-enhanced PS3 edition and the all-new PS Vita iteration.

The game's community manager, Ramone Russell, described how the San Diego team began development with a gruelingly in-depth focus test. The goal: to suss out what core players didn't like about last year's edition.

"The key feedback we heard involved our presentation and commentary, so that's our number one focus this year." Russell described a new feature called True Broadcast Presentation, which accurately recreates broadcast camera cuts and other presentation signatures you'd see in a televised MLB broadcast.

"We're trying to blur the lines between baseball simulation on your PS3 and what you'd see on MLB.TV sitting on your couch," Russell explained. "When a batter strikes out, the camera will cut and you will see his face, his anger."

Commentary, which Russell specifically described as the "number one complaint" from last year's game, is seeing a similarly massive overhaul. "You'll hear more season-specific...
 

Sony Unveils Infantry Weapons in DUST 514 for PlayStation 3

Sony Unveils Infantry Weapons in DUST 514 for PlayStation 3 300°
169w ago - Today Sony Community Manager Phil Wang has revealed the Infantry Weapons available in DUST 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: The handheld weapons are a key part of any MMOFPS and DUST 514 is no exception. There were a few things that were very important to us.

Firstly, we wanted to avoid the feeling of "Vietnam in space" that you sometimes see in sci-fi games. The goal was to create weapons that had recognizable roles but used more advanced technologies than the equivalent weapons of today.

The power of these guns would tear apart a modern day battlefield. In DUST 514 the only way your mercenary can survive the power of these weapons is due to the advanced shielding and armor of the dropsuits they wear. Without them, simply firing these weapons would severely injure or even kill you!

Secondly, it was important to us that the weapons felt like a natural part of the EVE universe. In the same way that the ships in EVE have distinct racial designs and specialties, the weapons of DUST 514 had to encapsulate the values and technology of the race that created them.

The ruthless efficiency of the Caldari, the progressive aesthetics of the Gallente, the resilience and resourcefulness of the Minmatar as well as the proud arrogance of the Amarr...
