14w ago - Roll7 Director Tom Hegarty posted up a video today announcing that OlliOlli for PlayStation Vita drops in on January 21st, 2014.

To quote: We've finally finished OlliOlli, and what's even better, we now have a release date: January 21st!

As you may know, this our first PS Vita game, so it's been a big challenge for us - a challenge that's been well worth it (and we hope you'll think so, too). We originally planned to launch before the holiday, but due to some technical issues we had to push back.

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who patiently supported us throughout 2013, including fans, press, and all the crew at PlayStation - especially Shahid and Spencer.

Now that we're on the path to releasing OlliOlli into the wild, it seems pertinent to give you the final details about all four modes and the game's Trophies (in case you didn't see them when they accidentally leaked last month)!

Career Mode: 50 deviously handcrafted levels split between Amateur and Pro. The further you progress, the more accuracy and timing you'll need to reach the adoring crowd at the end of each run.

Each level has five challenges, including Combo and Score attacks, and is linked to its own global leaderboard. Think you can get that number one spot?...
 

Video: Foosball 2012 Drops on PlayStation Network Today

90w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has announced that Foosball 2012 drops on PlayStation Network today and has shared the official launch trailer below.

To quote: Jakub from Grip Games here! Today is a great day for our small indie studio - Foosball 2012 is out today on PSN! I'm stopping by today to answer a few questions about the game.

Foosball 2012 is another entry in the line of not-so-typical-for-a-console-game sports, like darts, bowling, pool, or golf that we have seen recently on the PlayStation Store. If you weren't sure which platform to get the game on, we think you'll appreciate that when you buy the game for PS3, you'll get the PS Vita version for free and the other way around!

A lot of people ask us "Why foosball?" and we keep telling them "Why not?" Other games that wouldn't seem to be well-suited to a console experience managed to capture the essence of those games, and we hope to do the same with Foosball 2012.

It is not just about playing foosball, it's about playing a quick, skill-based game, that is easy to handle, but difficult to master. A game with a great multiplayer component and entertaining single-player mode, lots of customizations and Leaderboards to keep track of where you and your friends are standing against the global competition.
 

GameStop and Amazon Offering PS3 Price Cut, Sony Drop Incoming?

500°
104w ago - This weekend retailers GameStop, Amazon (US) and Amazon (UK) have cut the price of the 160GB PlayStation 3 console from $249 to $199 (159.99) leaving many wondering if an official Sony PS3 price drop is incoming.

To quote from PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above): "First GameStop cut the price of the PS3 by $50, then Amazon US, now Amazon UK has also dropped the price by a whopping 40 ($64).

If you live in the UK and have yet to get a PS3, be sure to pick one up now. If you don’t, then the deal should still be of interest to you - Amazon US and GameStop’s price cuts could be seen as simply a price war between the two retailers, but with Amazon UK now joining in on the discount, it does seem like retailers are discounting ahead of an E3 price drop, something that has happened in the past.

Michael Pachter previously said that Sony needed to cut the price of the PS3 to remain competitive in the US:

PS3 hardware sales should continue to lag those of the...

Atlus ReVITAlized PSP Price Drop Event is Live Today on PSN

107w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today that their reVITAlized PSP price drop event is now live on PSN.

To quote: We (the fine people at Atlus) are dropping prices on our PlayStation Store library of PSP system titles, not unlike the PS Vita's undocumented ability to drop smaller articles of sub-clothing. We're calling it...

Want to own the complete PSP Persona collection, including Persona 3 Portable, which is tied for the second-best-reviewed PSP game of ALL TIME, according to Gamerankings.com?

It is now far more affordable to do so. Also getting a drop in price is the very recent Persona 2: Innocent Sin, a stunning handheld remake of one our company's most highly anticipated games!

Always been a fan of Sting's series of Dept Heaven RPG and SRPG genre-benders? Perhaps you've always been curious to see how Knights in the Nightmare, with its incredibly novel blend of tactical roleplaying and bullet-hell action, looks and plays?

Well, for less than half the price of a new console game, you can own every PSP Dept Heaven game we've ever released (which should set you up nicely for the upcoming June release of Gungnir for PSP, the next entry in the acclaimed series).

Besides the aforementioned two collections,...
