Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Trailer, Gameplay, And Behind The Scenes Video

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is the third game in the Uncharted series, created by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation 3, and due for release on November 1, 2011. It is the sequel to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Uncharted 3 will see protagonist Nathan Drake and mentor Victor Sullivan travelling around the world to such places as the Rub’al Khali desert, in search of the legendary lost city, the Iram of the Pillars. The plot will draw from the archaeology days of T. E. Lawrence. Creative director Amy Hennig has explained that the desire for a desert-themed Uncharted stemmed from wanting to push the team creatively and technologically, as “organic” elements such as sand, water, and fire are “technically difficult to credibly render with animation”.

New features in Uncharted 3 will include 3D stereoscopic support, “enhanced backward climbing” and the ability to fight multiple enemies at once. The multiplayer and co-op features will also be greatly expanded.

An expanded trailer was released at the 2010 Spike VGA’s, around two minutes long, with in-game footage of Nathan Drake in the desert:

Jimmy Fallon spoke to some developers at Naughty Dog and had some Uncharted 3 gameplay for several minutes during his talk show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Click here to watch this video in higher quality on YouTube.

Lastly, an eight minute long video has surfaced showing the behind the scenes look at the development of Uncharted 3 teaser trailer, which has some interesting reflection, exclusive gameplay footage, and more:

DEAD: How To Get Free DC Universe Online Beta Access For PS3 Now

DC Universe Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) set in the DC Universe. SOE is working to make DC Universe Online more interactive than standard MMORPGs, while trying to keep their key elements, which include a leveling system, raid instances, endgame progression and inventories. The world is mainly shared, public space instead of heroes or villains owning territory. The public space features dynamically-generated content designed for both hero and villain player characters (uniquely created by the player, who cannot choose DCU stalwarts).

Players will choose a mentor for their character (such as Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman for heroes and Lex Luthor, The Joker, or Circe for villains). Their starting location, principal quest rewards and mob loot will be influenced by that decision. The starting zones are either Metropolis or Gotham City, for both heroes and villains. Heroes can also go to the Justice League Watchtower, while villains can enter the Legion of Doom headquarters. Other zones can be reached by teleporters from the two faction headquarters.

EDIT: After signing up, Gamespot now says “This offer is now over. Thank you for your interest.” Sorry!

Click on this link to test drive the DC Universe Beta on your PS3. All you have to do is simply sign up for a Gamespot account, follow the link, and the key is yours. I was able to get a beta key in less than a few minutes.

In DC Universe Online, Each character is given a communicator appropriate to their faction, via which they receive urgent communications from their mentor and his/her colleagues and subordinates; heroes will frequently receive status updates from Oracle, while villains will receive data from The Calculator. In addition to assignments from their mentor, player characters may also receive requests for help from other mentors of the same faction. Player characters may also accept missions from non-player characters (NPCs) in the street, usually minor characters from their faction. There are also opportunities for quick street encounters appropriate to the character’s faction: for example, a hero character may encounter a thug robbing an armored truck, trying to break into an office building, or in the process of mugging a citizen; while a villain character may be presented with opportunities to assist NPC thugs with an armored truck robbery, or assault a citizen using an ATM. All NPC interactions are fully animated and voice-acted. Player characters will earn threat ratings that will cause NPC heroes and villains to interact accordingly with the character.

The shared worldspace offers primarily solo and team player versus environment (PvE) gaming opportunities in the form of open air missions and instances, although player versus player (PvP) combat is also possible in this worldspace. Other PvP (and to a smaller extent, PvE) gaming is available in various types of queued instanced encounters: “Legends”, small scale PvP combats in which players take on the identities of iconic characters (continued success in Legends combat unlocks additional iconic characters); “Arena”, small scale PvP combat in which players fight as their own characters; “Alerts”, cooperative team missions; and “Raids”, large scale PvP combat between teams of opposing factions. Success in PvE missions is rewarded with in-game money, costume pieces, equipment and consumables, while PVP combat is rewarded with unlocks of special equipment sets.

Jim Lee serves as the game’s Executive Creative Director, along with Carlos D’Anda, JJ Kirby, Oliver Nome, Eddie Nunez, Livio Ramondelli, and Michael Lopez. EverQuest developer Chris Cao is the Game Director and Shawn Lord is also involved. Geoff Johns is the principal writer.

Gran Turismo 5 Now Available

Gran Turismo 5 is now available for the PlayStation 3 (PS3). Can you believe the wait is over? Known for its signature beauty and precision, the highly anticipated racer will showcase new jaw-dropping cars, real-life tracks, and diverse racing styles. Gran Turismo promises to deliver exciting advancements to the series in the most comprehensive racing experience ever.

We have the complete list of cars in our post, “The Full List Of Cars In Gran Turismo 5“. There was also a GT5 launch event today of course and what better than to host it in Madrid. PlayStation Blog EU has some pictures and I also saw a nice set of shots by flickr user armo. If your hungry for even more GT5 coverage hit this Google News link. I think you could spend days reading all the reviews within.

The game was currently holds a Gamerankings score of 88.5%, and an 87% on Metacritic at the time of this writing. Reviewers praised the number of cars, car-specific information and single-player content included and commented positively on the driving-physics which had been improved from Prologue. The inclusion of karts as well as licensed WRC and Nascar-vehicles was also received positively.

The graphics received mixed reviews with reviewers praising the lighting-effects as well as in- and exterior-details of premium-cars, stating that Photo Mode showed-off their detailed graphical design very well, but commenting negatively on the detail of standard-cars which lacked cockpit-views, looked like upscaled versions taken from GT4 and did not keep up to the level of detail found in the premium-models. The newly-included damage-feature received criticism for barely effecting car-handling and damage-effects only being applied after multiple serious crashes. Graphical on-track-detail was also criticized as being sub-par to the detail found on the cars.

The new Course Maker-feature was also commented negatively upon. Reviewers were dissatisfied with the tool only allowing to edit randomly-generated tracks instead of letting users create their own track-layouts.
The AI was also criticized for still making CPU-drivers brake unexpectedly and not being aware of the player’s car on the track, just as in previous games in the series. IGN called it “the series’ now trademark zombie A.I.”

Here is an incredible overlook of GT5 by Qore:

We couldn’t resist posting this video by the main man himself, Kevin Butler, about his influence on GT5:

Sony Black Friday 2010 Buying Guide (Updated 11/23)

Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving (November 26th) in the United States, which is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but many employees have the day off (with the exceptions of those employed in retailing, health care, and banking), which increases the number of potential shoppers. Retailers often decorate for the Christmas and holiday season weeks beforehand.

Many retailers will open extremely early on Black Friday 2010, with most of the retailers typically opening at 5AM or even earlier. However, the whole experience has become rather intimidating lately, with an enormous amount of deals out there that often leave the consumer bewildered. So, that’s why we condensed all Sony Electronics products (including PSP, PS2, and PS3 games) that have special Black Friday prices in one master list for your convenience. Unfortunately there aren’t any links for the deals, but a simple Google search of the store/product in question should help you on your way (if applicable).

This is an early version of our list and will be continuously updated till Black Friday. Check back for more updates!

The Full List Of Cars In Gran Turismo 5

As far as we know, Gran Turismo 5 features the most extensive list of vehicles ever seen in any racing video game. 1,031 cars will be featured in the game, which players can drive on 26 different locations and 71 different tracks.

Amongst many others, Lamborghini and Bugatti will make their first appearance in the game, following on from their introduction in Gran Turismo PSP. It has been confirmed the new “gullwing” Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG will appear, along with Ferrari’s recently unveiled 458 Italia. McLaren will also make their first appearance as a native manufacturer with the inclusion of the McLaren F1 road car (the F1 GTR race version was present in Gran Turismo 4, but was included in BMW’s dealership). Le Mans spec cars will make a return appearance.

The cars in GT5 will be separated into two types, “standard” and “premium”. In the list below, standard cars are marked as (S) and premium cars are marked with (P). Standard cars will have standard headlights, no interior/cockpit view and basic damage modelling. Premium cars will be extremely detailed inside and out, have headlights capable of high and low beams and an extensive, detailed damage model. The game will feature significantly fewer “premium” cars because they take longer to model.

Up to 16 cars will be able to race on track at once and up to 32 karts will be able to be on track at once. This is the first time in the main numbered series that more than 6 cars are on track at once.

Gran Turismo 5 All Set For Late November Release Date

At long last, Sony PlayStation has confirmed a November 24th release date for Gran Turismo 5 in North America, Asia and Europe while our friends in Japan and Australia can pick the game up on November 25th. Considered to be one of the most anticipated driving games of all time, the franchise has tested the patience of gamers everywhere with years of teasing.

The game is a powerhouse. Some of the most tantalizing features include an online mode that will be available in the game with 16 player capability. 1,031 cars will be featured in the game; it will feature 26 different locations and 71 different tracks. An optional Stereoscopic-3D resolution will be available. Night racing will return in GT5. Go-Karting will also make its first ever appearance in the franchise. World Rally Championship, NASCAR and Super GT licenses will be featured for the first time in the Gran Turismo franchise. A damage model has been confirmed with variations of damage depending on whether the vehicle is “standard” or “premium”.

The game was first revealed at E3 2005 under the name Vision Gran Turismo. This was not GT5 as we know it today but simply Gran Turismo 4 (for the PlayStation 2) with more cars on track and PC-rendered footage. The PlayStation 3 (PS3) wouldn’t release until November 11, 2006 and with no Gran Turismo game in the console’s launch line-up. Various bits of information and news was revealed about the game from then on but it was not for another 3 years that the public got a chance to have a proper look at GT5.

At Sony’s E3 2009 Press Conference, a trailer for Gran Turismo 5 was shown, revealing the inclusion of Super GT, NASCAR and WRC but no release date was revealed. In an interview with Eurogamer, Yamauchi said that “We’ve actually reached a point where we can probably release (GT5) anytime, except that you can also keep working as long as you want to as well, it’s just a matter of timing.”

However, in an interview with Auto Express in April, 2010, Yamauchi explained that, “Deciding a release date for a game is always difficult, as it’s not something I can decide on my own. The agreement on a date comes between various parties at Sony, and it’s not necessarily a date I would be hoping for. March would’ve been too early. We could have produced the game in time to make that deadline, but the finished product wouldn’t have had everything that I wanted to include.”

Here is a really great fan-made video for Gran Turismo 5 by KopparbergDave:

After missing its initial March 2010 Japanese release date, Sony announced at E3 2010 that Gran Turismo 5 would be officially launched in around the world in early November. They infamously missed that date, but now everything is set for later this month.

The Stylish PlayStation Lounge At Sony NYC

The Sony Building in New York City (at 550 Madison Avenue at 56th St) is home to several interesting aspects of the company, including the official Sony Corporation, Sony Music, Sony Pictures, and so forth. The building also houses some great places for the general public to visit, such as the Sony Wonder Technology Lab, a lavish SonyStyle store, a restaurant on the lobby floor, and now a new PlayStation Lounge.

Created by Sony’s Joby Hirschfeld (Director, Creative Services, Channel Marketing and Events) and his team, the PlayStation Lounge could be considered heaven for some gamers and design enthusiasts. The layout of the Lounge is somewhat similar to trade show booth design, and there is a reason for that. The creator of the Lounge and his team have quite the background:

My name is Joby Hirschfeld and I oversee the team responsible for the design and build of such things as the incredible booths you see at conferences like E3 and CES, the visuals for PlayStation press conferences, video production, the look and feel of the displays at your local retailers as well as the designs on the packaging of the PlayStation products you know and love.

The Lounge is a storefront for just about everything PlayStation. All of the latest first and third-party games are available there (for example, Call of Duty: Black Ops was available on release day), as well as the PlayStation Move and all of its games and accessories. There is also some exciting titles that fans can check out before they are released, such as Killzone 3, Motorstorm: Apocalypse, and Gran Turismo 5. The Gran Turismo 5 area is impressive because it has incredible Recaro-style seats, each with a flatscreen LCD, steering wheel and pedals for the best possible driving experience.

The PlayStation.blog provided a gallery of the PlayStation Lounge:

Relive The Cold War In Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops is a FPS video game developed by Treyarch, published by Activision and due for release on November 9, 2010. The game is the seventh installment of the Call of Duty series and the third game in the series to be developed by Treyarch. It is a sequel to the developer’s previous title in the series, Call of Duty: World at War.

Call of Duty: Black Ops takes place during the Cold War. The player mainly controls two characters: Special Forces operative Alex Mason and CIA agent Jason Hudson, both members of the Studies and Observations Group, a clandestine black operations unit tasked with carrying out critical missions behind enemy lines.

The single-player campaign will revolve around an experimental Soviet chemical weapon code-named “Nova-6,” whilst trailers have shown Mason being interrogated by an unseen tormentor. The game will include locations such as the Ural Mountains in central Russia, Cuba, Laos, and Vietnam. Black Ops also allows the player to enjoy the experience of piloting a Hind helicopter and guiding friendly troops from an SR-71 Blackbird reconnaissance aircraft in single player mode.

Viktor Reznov, a key character from the Soviet campaign in World at War has been confirmed to return for Black Ops, joining Mason and the Studies and Observations Group in Vietnam.

The game features a star-studded voice cast, with notable actors such as Gary Oldman (Reznov), Sam Worthington (Alex Mason), Ed Harris (Jason Hudson), Ice Cube (Corporal Bowman), Emmanuelle Chriqui (unnamed character), Topher Grace (Special Agent Harris), and several others lending their voice.

The online multiplayer mode of Black Ops retains the experience points and unlockable reward system that has been kept since Call of Duty 4. The game’s multiplayer focuses on socialization and customization.

Here is an unbelievable one hour long overview of Black Ops multiplayer mode, courtesy of Gamespot:

“Create-a-Class 2.0″ will allow enhanced personalization with appearance items as well as upgradable perks: weapons will be extensively customizable with clan tag writing, emblems, attachments and camouflage painting. Even reticles can be modified. There will be more than one style for an attachment, which allows for a lot more personalized weaponry; for example, the player can choose between a Red Dot Sight or a Reflex Sight, both of which share the same traits only visually look different. Character models will depend on the first tier perk instead of the weapon’s type. Furthermore, face paints can be unlocked.

A currency system has been implemented allowing players to buy weapons, accessories and clothes. Players can gamble with their “COD Points” in a free-for-all based playlist called “Wager Match”, which is composed of four game modes. Time limited objectives known as “Contracts” can be purchased to gain more currency and experience points. New custom killstreak rewards include RC explosive cars, guided missiles and controllable attack helicopters.

For the first time in the series, clips from online gameplay can be recorded. Players will be able to play alone or with friends against AI opponents in “Combat Training” with a separate progression system.

Online split screen (which was featured in Call of Duty 3) is re-introduced on Xbox 360 and PS3. The guest account can rank up but will be reset after each sign out.

The zombie mode of World at War will return as a four-player online and two-player split screen co-op mode in which players take the roles of John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Robert McNamara, and Fidel Castro as they fight zombies at the Pentagon. Limited editions of the game will offer four zombies maps from World at War.

List Of Games Compatible With Sony’s PlayStation Move

PlayStation Move is a motion-sensing game controller platform for the PlayStation 3 (PS3). Based on a handheld motion controller wand, PlayStation Move uses the PlayStation Eye camera to track the wand’s position, and inertial sensors in the wand to detect its motion. Hardware available at launch includes the main PlayStation Move motion controller, a supplementary PlayStation Move navigation controller, and an optional PlayStation Move charging station and other form-fitting accessories. The PlayStation Move competes with the Wii Remote (with MotionPlus) and Kinect (the system formerly known as Project Natal) motion control systems for the Wii and Xbox 360 home consoles, respectively.

Although PlayStation Move is implemented on the existing PlayStation 3 console, Sony states that it is treating Move’s debut as its own major “platform launch,” planning an aggressive marketing campaign to support it. On the boxart of PlayStation Move games, underneath the PlayStation 3 logo banner, a blue bar with white letters indicates when a game supports the PlayStation Move. When a game can only be played with the PlayStation Move, it will say “PlayStation Move Required”. When a game supports traditional DualShock 3 controls and PlayStation Move controls it will say “PlayStation Move Features” (or “PlayStation Move Compatible”).

One of the biggest questions about the PlayStation Move is what games are out there for it? There are actually quite a few games already available and more are on the way. Alongside Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios and its second-party partners, a total of 36 third-party game development companies have confirmed that they will support the PlayStation Move. We have spruced up a great list found on Wikipedia have embedded it in this blog entry for easy reference:

Hulu Plus Is Live, Coming To Sony PS3, HDTV’s, Networked Devices

Hulu Plus (which just exited private beta and went public today) is progressively becoming available for many Sony devices that have the BRAVIA Internet Video platform. The popular video website is making a rapid expansion onto hardware to follow suit with Netflix, who has profited greatly from device integration. Sony is bringing the $9.99 a month streaming Hulu Plus TV subscription service to all of its 2010 networked Blu-ray Disc players, Blu-ray Home Theater Systems, SNP-N100 Network Media Player and the Dash.

Next week, Hulu Plus will also be available for all PlayStation 3′s, giving more than forty million gamers the opportunity to try out legalized streaming TV on their PS3. The combination of Netflix and Hulu Plus, at 9.99 each, could be the $20 bill that can could one day kill cable/satellite. Sony is also touting the fact that the PS3 will have Hulu Plus before the XBOX360, which is not slated to have the service until early next year.

Will Hulu Plus take off? It’s hard to tell – the content is great, relevant, and high quality, but even the paid $9.99 service still has advertisements.

Regardless, Sony is pulling out all the stops by piling on dozens of content providers into their machines. I feel that Sony has stepped up their game in the last year with IPTV, recognizing the value proposition, and taking a lead in some instances. It’s pretty amazing that Hulu Plus, Qriocity (Video/Music), and Bravia Internet Video are coming to PS3′s very soon, which gives the PS3 access to all of that great content, but also Netflix, the PlayStation Video store, etc.

We’ve pinged one of our contacts with specifics as to when and what Sony devices are getting Hulu Plus. Here’s what he said is compatible so far:

Any TV compatible with the old BIVL (BRAVIA Internet Video Link) box and all of our 2010 connected BRAVIA models including –

LX900, HX909, HX800, NX800, NX810, NX700, NX710, EX700, EX710…
