At Sony’s Gamescom conference today, a new Playstation Move horror game entitled Until Dawn was announced. Alongside the announcement is a launch trailer!
Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will be available for digital download on the North American PlayStation Store starting today. The collection will include both The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles and will be going for $26.99.
What is looking like to be the biggest blockbuster of 2012, may just be one of the biggest blockbusters of all time.
Just when you thought that Microsoft couldn’t think any more out of the box than the Kinect already is, say hello to the wearable EMG (Electromyography) device.
It was announced today that Capcom confirmed the release of the Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection. The collection will include The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles. Both titles will have an HD make over as well as trophy integration for PlayStation Network.
Gamers will be able to play through the game alone, or with a friend in co-op mode, all the while having the option to use the PlayStation Move controller or a regular Dualshock. Whichever gaming style you fancy.
For those not familiar with the Chronicles series. It’s a shooter similar to the House of the Dead or Time Crisis games. Its a very fast paced intense type of shooter in which [...]
GDC was last week, here in San Francisco, and it was pretty awesome. Lots of clever people, interesting projects, and great discussion. I want to go over one of these interesting projects. I’m sure many of you have, at this point, heard about Johann Sebastian Joust. In case you haven’t, let’s go over the rules:All players have a PlayStation Move controller. If a player moves their controller too quickly, they’re out. “Too Quickly” is dictated by the tempo of the music. The faster it is played, the faster people can move, giving them opportunities to be aggressive, or saving a seemingly doomed player. The goal is to knock out other players, while defending yourself, and be the [...]
The NES Power Glove was released by the Mattel toy company in 1989. I never had the pleasure of owning one, however I do wish I had one today, just to add it to my collection. This accessory was the first of its kind to allow the gamer to interact with a video game. This item was ahead of its time and it was considered a failure even though it was used in the cult classic movie, The Wizard. This glove only had two games that you could play with it: Bad Street Brawler and Super Glove Ball. Other games were announced but never saw the light of day. If you really wanted to, you could use a code to allow certain games the ability to use the Power Glove.
There have been several [...]

A few months ago the LittleBigPlanet 2: Move Pack was released and it came with a proprietary Paint program that allowed players to use the Move controller to create artistic works of their own. I happened upon some of these great artworks by artist, Jim Unwin, and was absolutely blown away by how much finesse can be achieved with the PlayStation Move controller.
An artist at Media Molecule, Jim was one of the minds behind the LBP Paint program that allows users to paint with their Move controller. Now I’m no art connoisseur but the digital paintings are spectacular and showcase a very unique ability, if you may, of the Move controller.

According to information from the Playstation Move GDC panel, Sony is set to reveal PC support for their Playstation 3 motion sensor technology. Apparently it will be presented in the form of something known as “Move Server” which will allow third party programmers to create their own applications which use the technology. The official synopsis reads.
“The Move Server program will will make it possible for academics and hobbyists to develop software using the PlayStation Move controller on their own PCs.”
Rival technology such as Microsoft’s Kinect has already seen hacks that make it compatible with the PC, but this move will be a completely official one and will [...]

With gamers either in the Kinect or Move corner, the core gamers are still on the outside looking in. Many developers know this and one is hoping to change that at the top of the New Year. Modern Combat: Domination, a new online multiplayer shooter with Move support is coming to PSN in January. It’s being developed by Gameloft.
You can head over to the PlayStation Blog, where you’ll find a brief Gameloft-produced Q&A about the game discussing Domination’s map design and some of the other non-Move details.
The developer is counting on a “far less expensive” price and a focus on realism to help push it above other first-person shooters on [...]
