Sony and Sanzaru Games have released a short animated prequel to their upcoming game, Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time. It features Sly and the gang attempting to steal a watch from Muggshot, a giant bulldog gangster and rival of Sly. This style of game advertising really gets you interested in the game, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Sony decided to do this again with Sly Cooper. This would also make for a really interesting TV show. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is available for purchase February 5, 2013.
Here is the full-length version of “From Ashes,” the live action trailer for God of War: Ascension, featuring a special arrangement of Ellie Goulding’s “Hanging On.” A special one minute edition of this video will be played at some point during this weekends super bowl. (That’s a real life sports game involving a football, something that looks like Family Guy’s, Stewie’s head, that a lot of people watch.)
Anthony Caiazzo, the senior product marketing manager at SCEA said that, “This is just about the biggest production we’ve ever undertaken for a God of War commercial or trailer — or for any PS3 game for that matter. We are very proud of how it turned out, and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
That red PS3 ultra slim looks pretty nice. I may have to find some funds for one.
Sony Computer Entertainment America President and CEO, Jack Tretton, visited the University of Southern California campus last month and spoke to students about the past, present, and future of the PlayStation. I had a chance to attend this event, and it was amazing to see Mr. Tretton in a casual setting. Normally the only time we would see him is during the Sony press briefing at E3, where he speaks in front of thousands. However, this time, it was a more “me and you” type of meeting. Mr. Tretton was introduced by Richard Lemarchand, now associate dean at USC and former lead designer of Naughty Dog.
Being in the presence of SCEA’s big boss is such a crazy, unique feeling. I mean, this guy is the shot caller for everything PlayStation. He talked about how PlayStation continues to grow and extend its generations through various versions of its platform over the years, such as the first PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3. He never once hinted anything about possible next generation consoles. He goes on to discuss the PlayStation Vita and how the target demographics prefer something more “adult” and that “tablets and smartphones are just an addition, but ultimately, we want to bring true handheld console gaming to our consumers”
For those of us who bought the PlayStation Move, chances are, you own the first Sports Champions title (well, there’s a good chance I should say). As fun as that was, it didn’t have the variety that, say, Wii Sports Resort had, but at least it looked better and controlled better, right? Well, a sequel is on the way, creatively titled Sports Champions 2. No mention of the old games, except that archery will be updated, but now we’ll be getting new additions such as boxing, golf, bowling, tennis and skiing. Check after the jump for the announce trailer.
SCEA just launched version 1.3 of the Starhawk beta. The update introduces a new map called Planet Dust, a 32 player, huge map with new vehicles and weapons. The update also includes the Sidewinder Jetbike and the powerful OX tank, both shown in the video above.
