18w ago - Sony's Mark Rabo of the Sound Shapes Team wished a very Happy Birthday to Sound Shapes who turns one this week.
To quote: We're celebrating a big birthday this week - Sound Shapes turns one! At the age when we were wearing diapers and barely crawling, our strange musical platformer has been out in the real world making things happen.
First he came back with some good reviews, then a bunch of awards, and now he's hanging out with thousands of friends making levels. Who knew our little game would be so driven? As parents, it's real nice to see.
During this birthday week we have lots going on, and you're invited to the festivities. Have a look.
We're holding a level design/jam competition. To participate, create and upload a level highlighting what you love about Sound Shapes and hashtag the title with #BDay. Upload your level by August 19th, 2013. Winners will be announced soon with the launch of the next Milkcrate.
The top six creators will receive a signed, screen printed Sound Shapes poster and will be included in a special 1 Year Anniversary Milkcrate album which will be a permanent part of the Sound Shapes community.
43w ago - Sony Video Game Designer / Director David Jaffe invites fans to celebrate Twisted Metal's first PS3 birthday with a series-spanning sale today.
Below are the details, as follows: Hey all! I wanted to drop by to help celebrate the one-year anniversary of Twisted Metal for PS3!
"What?!?" I hear you say, "The game's already been out for a year?!?" Indeed it has! Crazy how time flies, huh?
Seems like only yesterday some of y'all were telling me I was an idiot for focusing the new game on three characters versus a larger cast like we did in the earlier TM games. Ah, good times, good times.
But seriously, on behalf of myself and the amazing Twisted Metal teams from Eat Sleep Play and Sony, please allow me to say thanks to all of the Twisted Metal fans who showed up to support this latest explosion of carnage and meaty gameplay.
While our online community is by no means the biggest in gaming, it's so exciting to see that it's very much alive and kicking. It's easy to find games, and new players are hitting the scene each and every week.
We've gone through a number of post-launch tuning passes,...

It has all of the makings of a game that ensures my PSP is rarely idle: Awesome graphics, gameplay that's gets as deep as I want it to be, teleporting ("overdive" system), plus I love games that get the shooting mechanics right on a PSP.
Hope you have as much fun as I predict I will!
