Toy Story 3 hits PS3 June 15th: It’s All About Zurg

John Day's Avatar Posted by Producer, Toy Story 3: The Video Game

Hi everybody! It’s John Day from Avalanche Software, the developer behind the upcoming Toy Story 3 video game. The game comes out in less than a week, and we can’t wait for you all to get your hands on it. Developing this game was an extraordinary experience and a whole lot of fun. Working closely with Pixar and in the Toy Story universe was an exciting opportunity, and we could not be happier with how the game turned out.

Back in April, we announced here that you can play as Buzz Lightyear’s arch-nemesis Zurg only on the PlayStation 3. Despite being in Toy Story 2 for only a few minutes, he is our favorite character — we’re excited to have him in the game for you to experience and enjoy! And today I wanted to share some more details on what you can expect when you pop in your PS3 copy of Toy Story 3: The Video Game and unlock the evil Emperor Zurg.

Zurg is quite a bit different from our other playable characters, which allowed us to create some fun things to do specifically as Zurg in Toy Box Mode. He’s the only character with a cannon, and his move set is completely different from our other playable characters. He has many of his own missions, and he even has his own vehicle — the Zurgmobile — complete with hood-mounted cannon. My favorite Zurg pastime is just running around the Toy Box and blasting the townspeople. His evil laugh is great too…MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Check out our new video (above) on how playable Zurg came together for the PS3. Then, play as Zurg yourself when the game releases on June 15th.

Add Your Own

Now with this, Red Dead Redeption, Lost Planet 2, and even other developers getting into the act of truly supporting the PS3. (Batman also comes to mind) Not just with exclusive DLC but also by adding more stuff into the game that would not fit into other platforms. (See NCAA 2010, and UFC 2010 they both are giving the PS3 extra content some times new people or teams to play as other times even more docs, and game modes to watch.)

For once developers are useing the extra space on Blu-ray. I can’t wait to see what Transformers War For Cybertron dose for PS3…….. Should be cool as Hasbro loves gamers!

Do we get to hear the Toy Story 3 score/soundtrack in HD audio? This is the one thing I wish more games would take advantage of, as this quality is unique to the PS3.

Now I want This dev team to do a Buzz lightyear video game with these graphics, just all the cool stuff from the cartoon show instead. IE Buzzes laser blaster, is rifle, and all the cool aliens he ran into made friends with, and all the times he and Durge fought hardcore style would be sweet.

(Without the massive blood and gore mind you….. Kids stuff please!)

    If you remember the opening sequence from toy story 2, where rex is playing the buzz lightyear video game, we’ve recreated the sequence, and added a whole lot to it as well in the game. You can use buzz’ jetpack, laser, and more.

This even makes want to buy this one.

I approve of Zurg in this version, but it would have been cool to add him on the PSP version too.

well guys it’s been fun but I’m thinking about selling my PS3 tired of all the PSN errors, Store errors, and most of all nobody from Sony telling us what is freakin going on. No info posted for all of those that are having trouble accessing Playstation store on both the ps3 and psp. BTW This company that’s releasing this game don’t put up addons or the actual game on PSN because ppl Probably won’t even be able to download anything.

Usually I stay VERY far away from Movie-games… but, I’m honestly really psyched for this one!

It looks like a ton of fun to just mess around with! And, that in itself is a GREAT accomplishment!

I’m going to pick this game up as soon as I can! ^_^

This video was already posted before. I had a major case of Deja vu reading the post and I had to double check the date to make sure I wasn’t reading a weeks old post

hi guys i have a question: will there be any pre-order gifts for the game? please reply :)
don’t know whether i should wait for it being less expensive or if i should pre-order. the goodies would definately get me on the pre-order side.
thanks in advance!
