9w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with some answers to Fuse PlayStation 3 questions courtesy of Insomniac Games.
To quote: During a PAX East panel over the weekend, Insomniac Games announced a May 28th North American release date for its upcoming PS3 co-op shooter Fuse.
The game blends some familiar elements of Resistance 2's large-scale co-op mode with exotic weapons powered by an all-powerful alien substance dubbed, you guessed it, "Fuse."
Given the news, we reached out to Insomniac Games President Ted Price with a list of topics we plucked from a recent Twitter call for questions. Enjoy, and be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments.
PSB: Games this generation have take a longer time to develop, how long have you guys been working on the Fuse concept (via jaydawg6958)?
Ted Price, President, Insomniac Games: We started working on Fuse a few years ago. It's evolved significantly since then, as all of our games have. Thematically the best way to describe Fuse is to take the dry humor and teamwork of Mission: Impossible (the new films, not the old TV show) and combine it with the crazy weapons of District 9.
82w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an FAQ on PixelJunk SideScroller below, which is now live on PSN today!
To quote: PixelJunk SideScroller is finally out in the world! This retro-styled side-scrolling shooter plays like a love note to the arcade games I grew up with in my youth, and serves as a quasi-epilogue to the PixelJunk Shooter series.
Before you pick it up on the PlayStation Store, get a closer look with this handy new Q&A. Q-Games President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert took to Twitter to answer your most burning questions. Read closely and you might learn a few helpful secrets!
Q: How many levels come with PixelJunk SideScroller?
A: There are 13 levels (called "Sectors") in total. This includes four absolutely amazing boss battles (Note: Expect an "old friend" from the Shooter-verse to make an appearance, but you'll be seeing loads of new faces as well).
One thing that's so great about SideScroller is that it has four difficulty modes, and the experience will change depending on what difficulty mode you select. New enemies crop up in Hard difficulty mode, and expect certain encounters to get a whole lot more harrowing because of them.

127w ago - PlayStation Network Sr Director Susan Panico has put together a handy FAQ of their ever-changing PlayStation Network today, as follows:
It's been a busy few weeks on the PlayStation Network with several big announcements and new apps launching.
In the month of November alone, we announced the launch of the NHL GameCenter Live application, the availability of Hulu Plus outside of PlayStation Plus, the VUDU app on PSN, and BBC America programming in the PlayStation Store.
We've also shared a new episode of The Tester 2 each week and just last week we announced a number of new games on PlayStation Home, as we marked the 2-year anniversary of the platform.
