Here is a demonstration from the E3 Sony press conference for a new release that might give Super Smash Bros a run for their money. All-Stars: Battle Royale is a fighting game based on gaining points by doing combos within a certain amount of time. It does have a lot of similarities to Nintendos Smash Bros, as you can see from the video. Each arena is from a different Playstation game, for the demonstration they are battling in the PS Classic, God of War. It’ll be available for PS Vita and Playstation 3. Some of the characters you can choose from include, Fat Princess, Parappa The Rappar, Sly Cooper, and Sweet Tooth. Think this is will be a flop or replace Nintendo’s version?
Quantic Dream excitedly announces their latest project Beyond: Two Souls at tonight’s Sony press conference. Beyond is a psychological action thriller about a girl who feels a connection between our world and the other side. This beautiful and amazingly story driven game tells the story of Jodi Holmes over the time span of 15 years. Sony was proud to announced the voice of Jodi being none other then academy award winner Ellen Page, as you notice from the trailer the main character also resembles Ellen. Through the actions and decisions you choose will give you the gamer the power to determine her fate. The preview shows Jodi unable to talk, remotely checked out being interigated by the police. After noticing a scar on the back of her head oddly a coffee cup thrusts itself to break on impact against a wall. Jodi then appears to be talking to someone who isn’t there confirming the swat team forcing their way into the station looking for her. As all of you know Heavy Rain was phenomenal and I don’t have any doubts this will be just as good… if not better.
The wait is finally over, next month on May 1 PSN will be adding Legend of Dragoon for purchase. No more trying to salvage old scratched discs or kicking that dusty PS One to jump start the title screen for your favorite classic RPGs. After Chrono Trigger hit PSN I knew it was only a matter of time till LOD was up for grabs.
Shu Yoshida talks a bit about the game development.
“The Legend of Dragoon was one of the last projects I worked on as a producer in Japan Studio and by far the biggest team I managed hands-on. We started the project in 1996 with only a handful of people, hired one by one as we were building up teams for Ape Escape, The Legend of Dragoon, and Icosimultaneously. During the peak of the game’s development, we had well over 100 people working internally in the studio on The Legend of Dragoon — for a PSone game! “

Kotaku has posted some details from an “insider” at Sony about their next system. The main point is that it’s either codenamed or named Orbis. While a lot of people will speculate something from the name, I have no interest in doing so. It’s a name…Unless it was named Playstation Holographic Gaming System. Then I would speculate something. Anyway, there are also some other details about the system that were hinted at and they are listed below.
