24w ago - Double Eleven Limited Chief Operating Officer Mark South announced today that PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD is coming to PS Vita.
Below are the details, to quote: Double Eleven, Ltd been entrusted with the keys to the kingdom for classic series such as LittleBigPlanet and Limbo.
For us, PixelJunk Monsters sits alongside those hallowed classics. In designing PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD for PS Vita, we wanted to take the fabulous PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe and make it an even better experience.
We worked closely with Q-Games to get it right, and then chose the name "Ultimate HD" at the end of development. We hope that's what we have created!
We've been big fans of Monsters and the other PixelJunk games for some time; the sharp, colorful graphics and addictive gameplay had us hooked. Monsters is one of those games that is super casual, but incredibly difficult at the same time: a quality which made us - and many others - keep coming back for more.
The tower defense premise is very familiar, but Monsters' effortless execution sets it apart from other games in the genre. We realized that if Monsters were remade today, it would still stand out amongst other games in the genre.
So we set out to make the definitive version of PixelJunk Monsters...
100w ago - Sony PlayStation Home Community Manager Locust_Star has announced today that beginning Wednesday eleven new games will be coming to PlayStation Home!
To quote: This Wednesday, January 11th will see yet another enormous update to PlayStation Home, with new games to play, a massive expansion to one of our most popular titles, and tons of collectible items.
For starters, our friends over at Digital Leisure are opening the doors to their all-new Casino game space.
Many of you have been asking for more casino-styled games since the launch of PlayStation Home Hold 'Em and we're proud to serve up an extremely elegant game space plucked straight from the Strip with all of the fun of a Vegas vacation without the high cost of admission.
From Blackjack and Poker and Casino War to Big Six Wheel and Keno and Slots, we've got you covered no matter what your game of choice is. Of course, no PlayStation Home game would be complete without some seriously awesome rewards, so Digital Leisure decided to add over 100 of them, including clothing, furniture, and even a luxury hotel room befitting the highest of high rollers (not that you'll be doing much sleeping once the Casino releases...)
