Starhawk Developer Lightbox Interactive To Issue Layoffs, Potential Studio Closure Inbound [Update 2]

Some rather sad news has surfaced today which may sting hard amongst those in the PlayStation 3 camp.  Official news hasn’t come in through the expected sources, but word has it that Starhawk developer LightBox Interactive will be issuing major layoffs and could be on the cusp of closing entirely in the next few days.

Sony and Darkhorse Announce The Last of Us: American Dreams

Comic books based on video games still seem to be a thing, at least as good marketing tools, as another Sony property is going the comic route.  Following in the steps of Infamous and Uncharted, Sony has announced that their forthcoming survival thriller The Last of Us will receive a new comic book series.

PlayStation All-Stars Open Beta Finally Starts

The time is finally upon us as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is ready for public consumption. Ok, we may have to wait an additional month to play the final game, but PlayStation gamers are in for a treat this week as the public beta for the game is finally being commenced.

PlayStation Store Receives Facelift

Rumors have swirled about it for months and the subject was even faintly teased at by Sony late last month. But at long last the news is official as Sony is giving the PlayStation Store a facelift that no longer sees it retaining the core design it once had.  Gone are the days of browsing through a web based store or one that was a bit of a chore to navigate as Sony is providing gamers with a sleek interface that looks to be one of the better design offerings the company has made in recent memory.

Sega Puts New Action-Adventure Vita Project On "Hold"

Sony may not have finally hit the sweet spot with the PlayStation Vita as far as having a rich software library that has widespread appeal, though there are some quality games currently available for the system.  First party studios will obviously continue supporting the Vita in titles such as LittleBigPlanet Vita, but the situation with third party studios is in a state of near constant flux, as evident by the latest update from Sega.

Battlefield: Bad Company TV Series In Development, Produced By Sony TV

Since the release of Battlefield 3 both EA and DICE have kept quiet as to whether Bad Company, the other Battlefield game, would ever receive a third entry.  Not on the same level as the mega success received from the core Battlefield series, Bad Company proved to be a nice spin-off that didn’t take itself too seriously yet at the same time provided the action gamers expect from the franchise.

Teaser Trailer Released For Invizimals Cartoon

Despite having one of the more robust 1st party line-ups whose appeal spans a vast array of demographics, Sony opted to make their first TV/cartoon effort be none other than an adaptation of Invizimals.

Sony Sued The Actor Behind Kevin Butler (Yes, This Really Happened)

Sony has done something that seems so unjustified in a way that even I, Mr. PlayStation fanboy extraordinaire, can’t defend it or spin it in a positive light.  A lot of dumb things have come out of Sony such as the infamous E3 2006 debacle and more constant things such as unloading a bevy of PSN games in the same week, but Sony went ahead and did something that seems entirely frivolous - they sued actor Jerry Lambert, the man members of the PlayStation nation know better as Kevin Butler.

Open Me Tasks Vita Owners To Open Up Boxes

So far the Tokyo Game Show hasn’t delivered a slew of new triple-A PS3 games nor has it heralded the return of games such as The Last Guardian, but it has provided us with a new game for the PlayStation Vita.  Sony still seems to be downplaying, if not ignoring the Vita, during key press events despite software being available - some of which is entirely new and previously unannounced.

Rockstar Reportedly Prepping Vita Games - For Now At Least

The hardware may be impressive, but the PlayStation Vita hasn’t exactly set the world on fire thanks to an uneven software library. There may be some standout games for the Vita, including the exceptional LBP entry, though games that capture a wide audience are still a rarity of sorts.  Sony may not have done the best job at marketing and showing what the future has in store for the Vita, but one studio that is reportedly supporting the device is Rockstar Games.
