56w ago - Sony Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel has announced Metrico today, a new PS Vita Pub Fund exclusive!

Below are the details, to quote: Dear readers, we are Roy, Geert and Thijmen, soon to be known as Digital Dreams.

As you've probably never heard of us, a short introduction might be in order. We're from the Netherlands and we share a building with other game developers like Ronimo (Awesomenauts) and Vlambeer (Super Crate Box). We have a short history in AAA development but quickly found out that we wanted to start our own company and work on our own projects.

As a small indie company we strive to create elegant and meaningful experiences in the form of downloadable console games. With that said, we are very proud and super excited to finally announce Metrico, a unique PS Vita exclusive!

Metrico centers around infographics, as you might have noticed from the teaser above. It's an atmospheric puzzle action game that strives to create a unique mindset of its own. The idea has been in our heads for a few years, and was born out of noticing how beautiful infographics can look as an art form.





It was reinforced by seeing that infographics...

77w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Cade Peterson has shared some launch video footage today announcing that Assassin's Creed III and ACIII Liberation arrive tomorrow with PlayStation exclusives!

To quote: The time has come, PlayStation Assassins! We are very pleased to announce that both Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed III Liberation will be available tomorrow on PS3 and PS Vita, respectively.

To celebrate, we'd first like to draw your attention to our Assassin's Creed III launch trailer, which you can watch below!

As an exciting bonus for our PlayStation Assassins, PS3 players will get day-one access to four exclusive missions at no extra cost.

The bonus missions cover one of the most dastardly betrayals in American history: the treachery of Benedict Arnold! We don't want to give too much away, but fortunately we have a trailer that goes over a few key details...





Starting tomorrow afternoon with the PlayStation Store update, PS3 owners will be able to download the four PlayStation-exclusive missions (note: you may have to play up to a certain progress point in the main game in order to actually access them).

Video: New PSN Exclusive Derrick the Deathfin Hits PS3 October 9th

50°
81w ago - Different Tuna's Head of Fresh Produce Gordon Midwood has shared a video today of the new PSN exclusive Derrick the Deathfin which will be swimming onto PS3 on October 9th, 2012.

Below is the video, and to quote: At Different Tuna, we've been working astonishingly hard to bring you PSN's premier underwater papercraft action game - Derrick the Deathfin.

We have 32 handcrafted levels and three level types, set across four challenging continents, with each level being increasingly fiendish and colourful in its design. On October 9th this world can be yours to explore, for $7.99.

You know that feeling when you're sitting on a roller coaster, slowly ascending, just in sight of the summit? That's what you're feeling right now. This time though, the ride is going to be much wilder than anything you've experienced before, and everything on the way down is going to be made out of paper.

To succeed you must fight, jump, race and eat your way through a myriad of confusingly textured circumstances. Good luck!





While you're waiting for Derrick to swim onto your PS3, you can busy yourself by making your own papercraft puffer fish! Or Pufferius Boxius - his official Latin name.

116w ago - Today Capcom Group Brand Manager Grant Luke has announced alongside a video trailer that Pac-Man and Mega Man are joining Street Fighter X Tekken's PlayStation exclusives.

To quote: Street Fighter X Tekken's roster is already bursting with fan favorites from both sides, and today we can add two more iconic characters to the list - and in this case, they're exclusive to PS3 and PS Vita players...

Two iconic mascots, Pac-Man and Mega Man, join the fray with existing PlayStation exclusives Cole, Kuro and Toro.

However, both mascots arrive in altered forms to create battles unique to Street Fighter X Tekken; Pac-Man rides Tekken's Mokujin, while Mega Man references the "classic" bad box art from the original US Mega Man.





Street Fighter X Tekken for the PS3 launches March 6, with the PS Vita to follow!
 

NBA 2K12 Introduces On The Move - PlayStation Move Exclusive

400°
133w ago - Today 2K Games Community Manager Ronnie Singh has shared details of NBA 2K12 for PS3, which introduces On The Move - exclusively for Sony's PlayStation Move below!

To quote: NBA 2K11 was an enormous success for us as we brought Michael Jordan back to the virtual hardwood for the first time in years. That was followed by extremely remarkable reviews, many calling NBA 2K11 "the greatest sports game of this generation".

People asked how we could possibly come close to matching last year's success. It started with unprecedented success at E3 where we picked up multiple Best of E3 Nominees/Awards and even had NBA superstar Kobe Bryant show off NBA 2K12 using the Move at the PlayStation Press Conference.

Many have said we've achieved the impossible, somehow surpassing 2K1. And with launch Tuesday, the hype is at a fever pitch. This game is better than ever, and this past Friday's IGN score of 9.5, saying "NBA 2K12 has dethroned its predecessor as the BEST basketball game of all time."

How have we accomplished this? In addition to our innovative gameplay controls and unrivalled realistic NBA action, this year, we decided to above and beyond last year, not saving any punches. Yes, Michael Jordan is back but this year he...
