Cory Barlog has come back to Sony Santa Monica after stints at Just Cause maker Avalanche Studios and Tomb Raider studio Crystal Dynamics. Previously, he served as lead animator on God of War, director on God of War II, and contributed to God of War III and the PlayStation Portable's Ghost of Sparta. He was a big part of the franchise, in other words.

In a post on PlayStation Blog, Barlog recaps his time away from Santa Monica in great detail before eventually teasing the new project he's working on at the studio: "What am I working on, you ask? Good question. Sadly, I cannot tell you...yet. But I can say that it is freaking huge, and it will live up to the standards that I helped establish here at SMS," he wrote.

"We're putting together a team as I type this, an Ocean's 11 kind of thing. We are searching the world high and low for the best of the BEST to come and be on the ground floor of this endeavor. So, hey, if you are a freaking rock star unafraid to roll your sleeves up and take risks, reading this thinking that your current digs are feeling...well...a bit small, a bit dull and in need of some excitement -- you need to contact me at Sony Santa Monica."

Xbox One games can now offer demos that unlock the full version

I came to really appreciate the way Microsoft handled demos on Xbox 360. Xbox Live Arcade titles were required to offer them, and if you liked what you played in the trial, it was super easy to upgrade to the full thing right...more
