Black Friday: Target has some great deals

We are now officially less than a week away from the post-Turkey Day madness. If you're set on stopping by either Walmart or Best Buy I can't blame you for that. Here's why you should still give Target a chance though: $139....

Black Friday: Newer releases on sale for $28 at Walmart

Well, here we are two weeks away from Black Friday itself. Pretty soon every retailer in existence will once again be vying for your post-Turkey Day attention with unheard of prices on pretty much everything. Walmart has gott...

LittleBigplanet screens are looking hot on PS Vita

Some new screenshots for LittleBigPlanet on the PlayStation Vita have squirted out of Gamescom, and they're looking quite pretty indeed. Really reminds me of the time when I thought the Game Boy's collection of black blocks o...

LittleBigPlanet not hindered by PSN outage

During the PlayStation Network downtime in May, many thought the outlook for Sony and its properties looked mighty bleak. Network outages mean lowered consumer trust and, more often than not, a reluctance to return to the ser...

LittleBigPlanet could have been free to play

In a panel discussion between former Sony executive Phil Harrison and Media Molecule staff, it was revealed that the team was at one point pushed to make LittleBigPlanet into more of an open platform with no financial barrier...

Final Fantasy VII sackboys in LittleBigPlanet 2 are ugly!

Yesterday it was announced that Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet 2 would get some Final Fantasy VII treatments. That sounds like a fun idea until you actually see them. Gah! Aeris/Aerith looks so derpy that I can't look at the ab...

E3: LittleBigPlanet Vita: Better than on PS3! (hands-on)

LittleBigPlanet on Vita has to be seen in person to be believed. It's beautiful! Sony put together a little playable demo to show off how they worked in all of the new Vita interface types into the LittleBigPlanet world. It w...

E3: LittleBigPlanet impresses on PlayStation Vita

At least for the time being -- which, admittedly hasn't been very long -- the emphasis on the PlayStation Vita's software library seems to heavily favor games that were successful, beefy favorites on PlayStation 3. Y'know --...

E3: LittleBigPlanet 2 gets better Move support

When LittleBigPlanet 2 shipped, it included some token support for PlayStation Move in the form of Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves. While cute, the self-contained levels didn't leverage full support of the peripheral. That's chan...

MERD: A stunning FPS built in Little Big Planet 2

The above video is of Massive Epic Raging Destruction (MERD), a first-person shooter game built using the game creation tools in Little Big Planet 2. As a guy who can barely grasp the idea of what's possible with enough...

So good: Back to the Future in LittleBigPlanet 2

Warning: this video may cause your face to melt if you have an attachment to Back to the Future. Even during the beta for LittleBigPlanet 2, we saw some serious shit. And, as evidenced by Kotaku's Stephen Totilo, creative re...

LittleBigPlanet gets a much-needed wiki

LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule is trying to get the word out that there's now a wiki for the creatively demanding platformer series. Whatever makes building Zelda dungeons easier is fine by me. The wiki will be run ...

Guinness World Records and the LittleBigPlanet 2 launch

To celebrate the release of Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet 2, Sony held a three-day launch event at the Sony Style Store in New York City last week. The main goal of the LBP extravaganza was to set Guinness World Records fo...

Games announced for the NGP include Uncharted, Killzone photo
Games announced for the NGP include Uncharted, Killzone
by Conrad Zimmerman

Sony showed a lot of both hardware and software at today's PlayStation Meeting 2011. So what games do we know of for the device? Live demonstrations of Uncharted and Hot Shots Golf were performed at the event, as well as Capcom's Lost Planet 2 and a new samurai title from Dynasty Warriors developer Koei. 

The PlayStation Blog has a rundown of other franchises which Sony has shown or talked about at the event. Major properties such as Killzone, LittleBigPlanet and Resistance obviously top the list and Call of Duty appears as well. Pool simulator Hustle Kings is listed, along with a number of new projects such as Little Deviants, Gravity Daze, Broken and Smart As.  

Furthermore, Sony has released a list of third-party developers and publishers. All the major players seem to be on board, though I'm happy to point out that Capybara, PopCap and Grasshopper all seem to be working on projects for the handheld. I can't wait to see what those studios in particular wind up doing with the Next Generation Handheld. Who do you want working on it?

Scary amount of 'Kill Obama' levels in LittleBigPlanet 2

Hey guys, did you hear that Barack Obama is a bad president? He is such a bad president, actually! We should do something to assert our political beliefs and take a stand for what we believe in? How about we create a level in...
