Star Trek Phaser set at Sony’s E3 press conference

Written on June 14, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

The Phaser, the PlayStation Move attachment awed people at Sony's E3 press conference.

Star Trek has hardly ever done action-adventure shooters on a console and has never done them with a playable Kirk and Spock. It will then be wish fulfilment for many when brought together in a third-person shooter, with cooperative, drop-in/drop-out play through all of its game modes.

Digital Extremes made Spock and Kirk work cooperatively but asymmetrically through using unique weapons and talents on the same targets. Some sequences will place them together on the screen doing different things.

Sony PlayStation Phone and PSP2 a No-Show at CES 2011

Written on January 06, 2011 by Chris Martin

Despite the leaked photographs now practically scattered all over the web, there's still no sign of the PlayStation Phone or even a hint of a PSP2.

Sony’s done with their bit for the CES 2011, and from what we can pick up from the statement given by Sony President and CEO Kaz Hirai, we can only root out that there may be a possibility of a PlayStation Phone as they neither confirm nor deny its existence. No hints we’re also given if we’ll be seeing Sony launch a counter attack against Nintendo’s 3DS with a possible PSP2.

In a question and answer portion of the conference, Sony’s head of home electronics Mike Abary gives fans “no comment” on the fan-inquiries regarding the PlayStation Phone and the PSP2. So what’s up Sony? Come on now, there’s nothing embarrassing about it, just say it.

Hit the break to see what we mean as President and CEO Kaz Hirai states something that may tickle our appetite for some PlayStation phone teasers.

PlayStation Phone, Replaces the PSP?

Written on December 27, 2010 by B Waldorf

“We don’t want gamers to be asking, what’s the difference between that and a PSP. We have to come up with a message that users will understand. It would have to be a product that keeps the PlayStation’s strengths intact.” ---Kazuo Hirai, Sony

Sony’s gaming master, Kazuo Hirai, gave out hints last week about the circulating rumor around the world for quite some time now: What will come after the PlayStation Portable?

Eventhough he remained a bit tamed on the details, he said Sony has been thinking of a successor game “since the day” the PlayStation was released. The company envisioned the device to contain both touch-screen controls and conventional buttons and analog sticks that the current version has.

“The games being played on Android and Apple platforms are fundamentally different from the world of immersive games that Sony Computer Entertainment, and PlayStation, aims for,” Mr. Hirai said. The kinds of gamers who enjoy more intense games, he said, would remain Sony’s fan base.

Video Games Actually Improve Real Life Skills

Written on December 21, 2010 by Chris Martin

1 person

MOM, listen up. There's more to a video game than blowing stuff up or getting a virtual achievement and trophy. They actually improve skills that are essential in real life, and we have evidence to prove it.

Researchers from University of Rochester and University Toronto conducted studies that may very well prove that video games can help develop a person’s skills in attention, vision, and particular aspects of cognition. This means they can see details better, can keep focus longer, and then some. Top that with a bag of chips and we’re ready to party.

PlayStation Move Sharpshooter Coming February

Written on December 10, 2010 by Chris Martin

2 persons

What's a better way to play a first-person shooter game like Killzone 3 in PS3? Use a gun over a controller of course. And what's the best gun to use in mercilessly landing a barrage of ammos to your enemies? None other than a rifle from Sony.

Dominate enemies with PlayStation Move Sharpshooter, the latest in Sony’s line of housing and navigation gun controller.

Yes, it still has that goofy glowing ball at the end of the gun, and yes, the aesthetics look disconnected with awesome shooting games at first glance, but this bad boy is nothing less than Sony PlayStation’s way of making gaming experiences more fun and mobile. The way Sony’s peripheral manager Anand Agarwal puts it, Playstation Move Sharpshooter is “the most intuitive and immersive control experience ever found in a shooter game,” that’s a tall order, but they are Sony and they can say whatever they want.

The accessory costs only $40 and is bundled with an adjustable shoulder stock, a digital trigger, a firing mode selector, and realistic pump action. None too shabby. Reports from Engaget.com says the realistic controls which require the whole body to move instead of a simple wrist movement can become a little dragging, plus players may have a little hard time adjusting to the designed controls. But only you can decide if this wicked rifle is awesome or fail.
