PC-focused developer Blizzard Entertainment was in attendance at Wednesday’s Playstation meeting, putting a question mark atop several heads for a few seconds before designer Chris Metzen announced Diablo 3 will be coming to both the PS3 and PS4. The console version will support four person, split-screen multiplayer putting your dungeon crawling buddies all on one couch, or as Metzen said with a declarative fist raised, “one couch to rule them all.”

This also means the game will potentially support cross play on the PS Vita. Metzen mentioned that more information is forthcoming at PAX East this year.

So, any non-PC gamers interested? Let us know what you think in the ol’ comments section.

PlayStation 4 dev kits reportedly sent to devs

Anonymous sources told VG247 today that new versions of the PlayStation 4 dev kits are being sent to developers. Codenamed “Orbis”, the PlayStation 4 has not been officially announced by Sony yet.

According to the sources, this second version of the dev kit–housed in a PC case–comes with Blu-Ray support. The previous version was little more than a graphics card, and they were sent out earlier this year.

sony e3 2012

Yesterday evening Sony presented their E3 2012 press conference, and in stark contrast to Microsoft started by revealing a brand new IP. For the most part Sony focused much more on games than supplementary services or features.

Here are some of the biggest highlights from Sony’s show.

The above image easily looks like a fan creation, but make no mistake, Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale is a real game. Only six characters have been revealed so far — Kratos, Sly Cooper, Sweet Tooth, Radec [Killzone], Parappa, and Fat Princess.In addition to typical Smash Brothers-esque gameplay, each character has a super attack that is gained from in-game Action Points. For instance, Sweet Tooth has his mech, Kratos can transform and wield the Blade of Olympus.

Environmentally, just like Smash Brothers, the arenas will be taken straight from Sony franchises. Battle Royale will also feature a host of single player modes in addition to online play. So far it looks great! My only actual problem with the game is that it could have a shorter title: perhaps Sony Battle Royale or Playstation Battle Royale would roll off the tongue a bit easier. The game is set to drop this Holiday season.

God of War Ascension

It looks like the rumors that pointed to Sony’s big 4/19/12 reveal being of God of War IV are true. An Amazon product page lists the game as God of War: Ascension. Details are scarce so far, but according to the product description Kratos will “seek freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family in the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far.”

In addition the teaser videos reference the time before Kratos became the Ghost of Sparta, so perhaps this new title will be a prequel of sorts.

The Smithsonian opened registration Wednesday to attend a special lecture held by famed game designer Hideo Kojima. This conversation with Kojima will take place on the second day of the Smithsonian’s Game Fest, a three day festival kicking off the museum’s new The Art of Video Games exhibit. Game Fest begins Friday, March 16 in Washington DC.

If there ever was hesitation around attending this event, the Smithsonian seeks to dispel not only with the confirmation of Kojima but also with the price of attendance — free.

While attention has shifted from gamescom to PAX Prime without us even thinking about it, there is a summit that will fly mostly under the radar this year — Cloud Gaming USA. Just after we’ve gone home with our swag bags and hangovers, this event will take place in San Jose, Calif. September 7 – 8.

Industry professionals will fill a conference hall adjacent to Silicon Valley in efforts to shape the future of how we play games. Most likely, the future won’t look like the above picture. Albeit, a look at the attendees may provide insight as to why we should pay attention.

At the peak of a 12 year working relationship, Sony has acquired Sucker Punch Productions, makers of the inFamous and Sly Cooper series. Both sides have expressed nothing but excitement about the deal, which will have all future products release under the Playstation monicker.

On the consumer side, it will be as if nothing has happened. Sucker Punch titles have consistently been exclusive to the Playstation brand. Yet, there are more subtle forces at play that may prove to be less than favorable.
