New Platformer, Tearaway, Jumps on to the PlayStation Vita in 2013
Until this point the PlayStation Vita has been a platform in need of a defining and system selling title, a need that the beloved geniuses at Media Molecule are attempting to fill with their new IP Tearaway. From the studio that that brought Sackboy and the rest of LittleBigPlanet to the PlayStation Network comes a unique and endearing world tailored fitted to the PlayStation Vita. In this new 3D platformer/adventure title players will interact with a truly cute and innovative paper mache world as either Iota if they choose to play as male or Atoi if they select the female character.
Sony’s unveiling of the Playstation 4 was one of the most exciting announcements in gaming history.
February 20th 2013 was a day that will go down in history. After years of rumors and speculation, Sony finally unveiled the Playstation 4. With a new console, new controller, and some fancy new first party titles, the Playstation 4 reveal was amazing.
Let first start off by saying the PS3 was not my console of choice. I owned one, but other than exclusives, I never really fell in love with the console. I am not sure if it was the cross media bar menus, the clunky store, or the weird trigger design for the controller, but the PS3 just never clicked with me. I have been waiting for the PS4 announcement for months, and Sony did not disappoint.
Gamers got a truckload of information at the PS4 reveal. The first piece of news was the hardware itself, and it is safe to say the PS4 is a beast when it comes to raw horsepower. With an 8 core AMD X86 APU and 8 gigs of DDR5, the PS4 is a huge step up over its predecessor. The processing power in itself is just plain exciting because of the possibilities in game design and graphics will be opened up substantially. We saw some of the possibilities with Killzone Shadow Fall, and yes it looks really pretty, but it was the character movement and fluidity that caught my eye. With the power of next gen consoles, not only will the games look better, but they will run much better as well.
God of War Ascension buyers get their hands on the Last of Us.
If you plan on getting God of War: Ascension when it comes out you’ll also be getting a small bonus. Early access to The Last of US demo. Once purchased, new owners of God of War: Ascension will only have to insert the disc into their PS3 and find The Last of Us demo listing in the main menu.
There, players will find details on how to access the demo once it becomes available. More information on the exact details of the demo will be released by Naughty Dog at a later date on the PlayStation Blog.
God of War: Ascension releases in March, and a single-player demo will be made available in February.
The Last of Us releases on PS3 in May.
Try out the newest God of War this February.
God of War: Ascension single-player demo will be made available in February, Sony has announced. The firm called it a “full-fledged single player demo,” So hopefully it will last longer than 10 minutes. Details of the demo will be available in the next couple weeks. Meanwhile, the PS Blog has also posted a look at the final contents of the Collector’s Edition for the game.
God of War: Ascension takes place six months since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and daughter, his hands stained with their blood – tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares… but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken.
God of War: Ascension comes out March 12
It’s 2013 that means it’s time for some video game predictions.
Hello everyone and Happy New Year! Since it’s the new year it’s time for some predictions. These predictions will cover everything I think will happen in the gaming world. So let’s get started.
Let’s start with the obvious one: there will be one, maybe two new consoles that will come out next year. The consoles I’m talking about are the next Xbox and the next PlayStation. I’m 100% sure the next Xbox will come out around the Holiday season. We’ve been hearing about for awhile all the leaks and rumors, and even Microsoft has given hints here and there. Microsoft is definitely ready to bring out their next console. For more Microsoft predictions, Cory has written a good piece here. Now the one I’m not sure about is the next PlayStation. I really don’t think Sony will release a new console till 2014, which could hurt them once again. We saw it with this current generation of consoles and only now is the PS3 being successful. But I am sure Sony will announce it at E3.
