With the mighty tower that is the Call Of Duty series on the decline and burning out, the Medal of Honor game that didn’t do as well as was hoped, MAG (although a great game) has become somewhat…mundane (though the DLC did help some), that really doesn’t leave much aside from Killzone 3, which is pretty good as I find I get the “World Full” message a lot, meaning there are a lot of players online, which is good!.
But let’s get to the real reason why I’m writing this. I was making my usual rounds on the internet enjoying the sights, errrr sites ( 😆 ), when I came across information on the SOCOM 4 “Collectors Edition”, or SOCOM 4: Full Deployment as they call it, and was I shocked! Here are the details:
The Full Deployment package contains the following:
- SOCOM 4 game, on blu-ray of course
- PlayStation Move motion controller
- PlayStation Move navigation controller
- PlayStation Eye camera
- PlayStation Move Sharpshooter
Two new commercials are going to be hitting the streets to promote the PlayStation Move sharp shooter in some good old Killzone 3 action. As always the commercials have a good amount of humor in them and damn does Killzone 3 look good!
[UPDATE] Since this post’s publication, Valve issued the following statement: “There’s a story making the rounds regarding Portal 2 support for PS3 Move. Unfortunately this quote was ‘lost in translation’–Po rtal 2 does not include support for Sony’s motion controller.” Too bad!! However there was no statement made saying that the PC code, cloud saves, and cross platform gameplay were false, so it still seems that those features are still ‘confirmed’ I’ll keep everyone updated as I look into this further. The original post can still be read below.
If you were anything like me, when portal hit the PS3 with Team Fortress 2, and the Half Life collection packaged in a perfect match up called the Orange Box, you went out and got it right away and first thing you did was tear into Portal with a fervor like a hungry man tears into a steak. After completing Portal I felt incomplete….alone, well no more, we learned last year at E3 that we would be getting a juicy sequel to the critically acclaimed title from Valve software.
With Portal 2 set to launch in April of this year loaded with features, today we learn about another juicy feature to the most anticipated game of 2011, Deploying surprise in…3…2…1…Move support! Yes that’s right, Portal 2 will feature “full move support” according to Valve. Valve’s own Chet Faliszek spoke of the feature VIA the German PlayStation blog and claimed it was “compensation for PS3 users not getting a Left 4 Dead release” (I think Valve is starting to see the light and are regretting not giving the PS3 the attention it deserves)
Other goodies that came with this update include PS3-Exclusive cloud saves, and a free code for a PC version of portal 2, also PS3 players will enjoy cross platform gaming with PC players through Steam, it just keeps getting better and better, April can’t come soon enough!!
Richard Ho the Associate Product Marketing Manager stopped by the Sony Blog and shared an in depth look at the upcoming Sharp Shooter for the PlayStation Move.
Taking advantage of the PlayStation Move is an understatement. This thing is looking like a game changer. Seeming as there’s no classic Call of Duty auto aim in Killzone 3 or Socom 4 this is going to help those who have become accustomed to assisted aim. I’m most looking forward to using this with Time Crisis as the already released Sony Move Gun attachment is not the easiest set-up to play with. Having the Move button next to the trigger will also make RE5 playable! The Sharp Shooter retails for $39.99 and will be released Feb 22nd along with Killzone 3 making it the must have peripheral.
