Drawn to Death not dead either
Sony San Diego has seen a large number of layoffs – thought to be in the region of 40 to 50 employees – but the MLB The Show team has been unaffected. Despite being one of the Japanese giant's lower-profile exclusives, the baseball series sells strongly every year in the United States – and is widely considered...
MLB The Show rarely gets much coverage on websites like ours, but it's a strong seller for Sony in the United States every year. However, reports are swirling that the studio may have been shut down. Not exactly the kind of news that will go down well at a time when the Japanese giant seems to be attracting waves of negative press. We...
Sign up for the Beta right now
After months of speculation, Sony finally revealed Kill Strain at the PlayStation Experience keynote today. Sony San Diego senior director of product development Christian Phillips confirmed that the title is a top-down 5v2v5 multiplayer game. It's also free-to-pla
PlayStation Experience is almost impossible to predict, as our recent article on the event evidenced. Despite listing out a slew of potential first-party project appearances, we glossed over Sony San Diego in our feature – and that sounds like the studio most likely to make some noise at the moment. Writing on Twitter, the company...
ModNation Racers: Road Trip has prompted an unfortunate furore
It's a shame because we were really impressed with the game at a recent hands-on event, but the absence of online multiplayer is a real kick in the nuts. What good is a kart racer without online competitive play — especially in a series that's all about showing off your character and kart? The backlash has been so bad, that Sony San..
Sony's "The Show" series is widely regarded as one of the finest sports franchises in the world, and MLB 12: The Show has no intention of passing on its crown
The latest iteration of the game — due out on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on March 6th — hopes to take things to the next level by blurring the lines between online and offline gameplay. Explained on the PlayStation Blog, each of..
Looks like Sony's renamed its upcoming PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 based dungeon crawler, Ruin
In an interview with Engadget, the platform holder showed off an updated build of the action RPG, and referred to the title as Warrior's Lair. Honestly, we're not exactly taken with the new name — but then Ruin wasn't particularly endearing in the first place. The game itself looks solid though,..
If there's any genre that needs to take advantage of the PlayStation Vita's ability to share save data with the PlayStation 3, it's the sports genre
Just imagine being able to take your FIFA season on the go when you're out and about, and then upload it back to your PS3 when you're at home. In order for the functionality to take off, someone needs to set a precedent — and thankfully that's going..
Much of what we've seen of Sony San Diego and Idol Minds' PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita title, Ruin, has emphasised on the game's cross-platform compatibility
But as senior social media strategist Sid Shuman admits, there's much more to the game than that. "Ruins developers are quietly building a wide, deep social network designed to...
Sony's announced PUMA After Hours Athletes for PlayStation 3, a collection of the platform holder's best PlayStation Move-powered PSN titles collected together on one disc
The set includes Top Darts, Hustle Kings and High Velocity Bowling — each of which also include stereoscopic 3D support. The game's out later this year.
'Tis the season for hardware bundles apparently
After this afternoon's Call Of Duty: Black Ops bundle announcement, Sony has followed up with a pretty decent PSP set. The package — which can be yours for a bargain $159.99 — includes a PSP-3000 in Piano Black, a 2GB memory stick, a copy of MLB 2011: The Show and Gran Turismo PSP. Not a bad set this actually, especially if there's a backlog of..
Sony's added a one-button gameplay mode to upcoming baseball title, MLB 11: The Show, at the request of 25-year old cerebal palsy patient, Hans Smith
According to the report , the new gameplay mode will allow gamers with disabilities to throw the ball or swing the bat with a single push of a button. May we nominate Square? Here I am, a baseball fanatic who never actually played the game for..
It's only been a couple of weeks since a Target employee last outed a special MLB 10: The Show Playstation 3 bundle
Now Joystiq's picked up a listing for the bundle on Target's very own website. No denying it now chaps! The pack includes a 250GB PS3 and a copy of the MLB 10: The Show game. Makes perfect sense seeing as the PS3 can now stream live baseball games too.
We loved the initial four tables released as part of Sony's a-la-carte pinball package Pinball Heroes
So we're literally grinning like a Cheshire at the prospect of four more tables, this time based on: Modnation Racers, Fat Princess, MotorStorm and Wipeout HD. Yay, Playstation fandom shrunk down into pinball form. The tables will plug straight into...
If you know anything about baseball, you know that MLB 10 The Show is due to be the best baseball game there is
It's also going to be the best looking. As these new set of screens from Kotaku prove.
