  1. PlayStation Nation, Two years ago we introduced you to our resident Vice President of just about everything, <a href="https://twitter.com/thekevinbutler">Kevin Butler</a>, in the inaugural “Dear PlayStation†ad which was timed with the introduction of our “It Only Does Everything†campaign. Since then, the campaign has helped make the <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/category/ps3/">PS3 </a>a household name in 50 million homes worldwide. Today, I’m excited to introduce you to a new brand campaign “Long Live Play†– designed to celebrate gamers from all walks of life and recognize you for making us who we are today. PlayStation has always been about the gamer and the <a href="http://us.playstation.com/ps3/">PS3 </a>is the ultimate portal to a land of infinite experiences and accomplishments. PlayStation is reaffirming our commitment to gamers like yourselves with “Long Live Play†– mixing humor and a little good, clean fun with the kind of entertainment content you crave. More...
  2. Back in the 80s, it wasn’t uncommon for restaurants to have a lone arcade cabinet sitting by the entrance. I’ve got fond, but hazy memories of a suburban Philadelphia diner where I discovered an innovative title called <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elevator_Action">Elevator Action</a>. I also recall a bacon cheeseburger... In the 80s, most games confined you to a simple side-scrolling plane -- it was akin to being on rails. Elavator Action enabled you to traverse a building vertically. It was a revelation. It was true freedom. It was, well, a different time. So when I learned that Elevator Action Deluxe was on its way exclusively to the <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/category/psn/">PlayStation Network</a>, my nostalgia was inflamed. With the game available tomorrow, <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/square-enix/">Square Enix</a> offered me the chance to ask a few questions of Producer Yosuke Tsuda. More...
  3. About 20 years ago, Midway was at the cutting edge of arcade game development using a unique method of creating very realistic images. By digitizing live actors, shot in front of a green screen, a number of games were developed that had a photorealistic look not found in any other games. Games like Narc, Smash TV, NBA Jam and Terminator 2: Arcade all used this technology. This approach was applied to a number of game categories including sports, gun games, and shooters. One genre, however, had not yet been attempted - the fighting game. In 1991, a small team of four decided to try making a fighting game using digitized graphics. The goal was to make something bold, shocking, and as realistic looking as possible. The game would eventually become <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/mortal-kombat/">Mortal Kombat</a>, the first in a series that have sold over 30 million games. Mortal Kombat was the “bad boy†of fighting games. It unapologetically depicted blood and had a much more hard-edge presentation than its tamer competition. Mortal Kombat’s bold presentation wasn’t without its controversy, but that only fueled the game’s unstoppable popularity. In addition, Mortal Kombat introduced a deep story and unique characters that also set it apart from other fighting games. More...

  7. Go ahead slap on those shades because the upcoming months the Blu-Ray supernova known as <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/modnation-racers/">ModNation Racers</a> becomes brighter and brighter. I watch day after day, week after week as the <a href="http://us.playstation.com/games-and-media/games/modnation-racers-ps3.html">ModNation</a> community create amazing Mods, Karts and Tracks that makes the development team wonder, "how did they do that?" This is one case where the students have truly become the teachers. One of my roles as community specialist is to not only share with you the evolution of <a href="http://www.modnation.com/en_us/index/index.htm">ModNation Racers</a> but the evolution of the Play Create Share vision. Each day I experience something (or somewhere) new that I never could have imagined and, if that's not enough, in just a few months we will be able to hold all of those gems in the palm of our hands with the introduction of the <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/06/15/modnation-racers-ps-vita-modding-with-your-fingertips-2/">PS Vita</a>.

  9. Our thoughts are with those on the East Coast that are withstanding Irene today (including our families - Rey, Sid, and myself all have our family back east). Having lived in Florida for some time, I've boarded up my fair share of windows, from Andrew to Wilma. When I was little, I remember Gloria coming up to coast and hitting us in Philly, but things were all right then. Here's hoping you get off as lucky as we did in those days. So, um, videogames! <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/pax11/">PAX</a> wraps up on the other end of the country today, and some great new impressions and stories are coming out of Seattle.

  11. I’m really happy to see the upcoming release of the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, which hits <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/category/psn/">PSN</a> next Tuesday, August 30th. The MKAK is a great way to relive the classic <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/mortal-kombat/">Mortal Kombat</a> arcade games right in your own living room, but I’m also excited that players who enjoyed this year’s new <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/mortal-kombat/">Mortal Kombat</a> will soon have the opportunity to play the first three games that set the foundation for the entire fighting-game franchise. I was introduced to Mortal Kombat on April 20th, 1992. I was fresh out of art school and starting my career at Williams/Bally/Midway. I remembered being overwhelmed that I was actually walking into the building where some of my favorite games were created: Narc, Robotron, Defender, and Smash TV just to name a few. Mortal Kombat was yet to be released. However there were a few Mortal Kombat prototypes lining the halls of Midway that we could test out. I remember being just blown away by my first experiences with Mortal Kombat. What first struck me was the size of the digitized characters on the screen. They were huge! I remember selecting Kano as my first character: I was a big Terminator fan at the time, so the choice was obvious. I also remember how in awe I was working (and playing) along side of the guys that created the game. A few days after that, I met the actors that were filmed for the game. More...
  12. Hi guys! I’m happy to share that <a href="http://www.boolat.com/news/">Boolat Games</a> has partnered with <a href="http://www.playrix.com/">Playrix Entertainment</a> to bring 4 Elements HD - packed with of PS3-exclusive content - to the <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/playstation-store/">PlayStation Store</a> on August 30th. Exciting news! The story takes place in a vast and ancient kingdom where evil forces have corrupted the balance between the four elements causing the altar of life to run dry. You have to unlock four ancient books of magic, collect 16 mysterious cards and restore this kingdom to life. Here are few things you’ll appreciate about 4 Elements HD. Imagine the addictive Matching gameplay where you freely draw the chains of same-colored pieces instead of just moving one piece next to another. It feels and plays like an arcade game and it works great on PS3! More...
  13. Now that you know Twisted Metal is confirmed for February 14th 2012, just in time for a bloody Valentine's Day, we wanted to share the latest gameplay video with PlayStation.Blog readers.

  18. With PAX Prime 2011 kicking off tomorrow in Seattle, attendees will get to try out a slew of new and unreleased games. If you’re heading to PAX, keep your eyes open for opportunities to play upcoming PlayStation Network titles, some of which won’t be released for months! A selection of <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/08/05/psnplay/">PlayStation Network PLAY</a> titles will be playable at PAX including <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/street-fighter-iii-third-strike-online-edition/">Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition</a>, located at Capcom’s spot at booth #3425. <a href="http://www.majescoentertainment.com/games/playstation-network/bloodrayne-betrayal/">BloodRayne: Betrayal</a> (releasing on PSN September 6th) shows off its gorgeously bloody 2D styling courtesy of Way Forward at booth #3652.

  19. Hey there! We are very proud to announce that our game <a href="http://www.closuregame.com/">Closure</a> will be coming to the the <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/category/psn/">PlayStation Network</a> next spring! For those who haven't been following our development these past few years, Closure is a unique and stylistic puzzle platformer that takes the concept of light and shadow and twists it up into something never before seen. You see, in Closure's dark and foreboding universe, the only things that exist are what you can see. An object properly lit up is physically there, yet an object shrouded in darkness ceases to be. Your character can take advantage of this by manipulating lights to effectively change the shape of the world you're in. Wanna jump through a wall? Well you can, as long as it's in darkness. More...
  20. Well, we’ve managed to steal, er, borrow, a production sample of the <a href="http://us.playstation.com/games-and-media/games/uncharted-3-drakes-deception-ps3.html">UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception</a> Collector’s Edition. We had a little help from our friend Nolan North, otherwise known as Nathan Drake in the <a href="http://us.playstation.com/games-and-media/games/uncharted-drake-s-fortune-ps3.html">UNCHARTED</a> games. Nolan stopped by the Naughty Dog studio with our ill-gotten sample of the Collector’s Edition and we couldn’t resist to shoot an unboxing video to give our fans a good look at what actually comes inside the awesome looking traveling case. We’re really excited to be able to check out, in person, our first ever Collector’s Edition version of a Naughty Dog developed game. Watch the video below to see Nolan give you a firsthand account.

  22. I checked out <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/aliens-colonial-marines/">Aliens: Colonial Marines</a> when I popped over to the SEGA <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/gamescom11/">gamescom</a> booth to say hi to a friend and, within minutes, it became one my highlights of the show. I’m not as familiar with the Aliens films as many – I remember seeing one of them on TV as a child and not sleeping well for a few days – but judging it purely as a shooter, it is looking very impressive. The level shown was a beautifully lit labyrinth of corridors on-board a craft sent to investigate LV-426, 11 months after Ripley escaped in <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aliens_%28film%29">Aliend</a>. The most memorable aspect for me was the animation of the Xenomorphs and my skin is crawling as I type just thinking about them. This added to the level design, which always leaves you feeling exposed as creatures pour from every angle and air vent, produces an unnerving shooter that piles on the tension. More...

Why, it’s <a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/tag/pixeljunk-sidescroller/">PixelJunk idescroller</a>, of course! We’ve released a brand-spankin’-new trailer for you. We hope it whets your appetite until you can get your PixelJunk-hungry hands on it.
