56w ago - Criterion Games Community Manager Jeremy Chubb has confirmed that the Need for Speed Most Wanted demo is out today on PSN with five tips for fans below!
To quote: Need for Speed Most Wanted is now out, and today we're celebrating 1 million Autolog users with the release of the PlayStation 3 demo. We're bringing PlayStation.Blog the inside track on what new players should look for, and how to dominate the Most Wanted demo.
Making a demo for a large-scale open world game is a major challenge. We wanted to put together a snapshot of Most Wanted's blend of exploration, connected competition and explosive, over-the-top police chase action to give you a taste of what to expect from the main game.
The action takes place in a locked down version of the city - you get to play in Fairhaven's Downtown and Four Bridges districts. These areas are loaded with billboards, jumps, speed cameras and hidden cars.
The game kicks you off in Aston Martin's beautiful V12 Vantage. Race to the first location, and we'll bust out the classic Porsche 911 Carrera S.
Explore the city further, and you'll find a "Jack Spot" with Audi's flagship R8 Spyder. Park and hit triangle to instantly switch. It's as easy as that. In the main game, it's the same deal but on a grand scale. There are over...

To quote: We have 5 great new minis playable on both PSP and PS3 launching today ranging from bouncing balls to street crime! Check them out below.
Archibald's Adventures from Rake in Grass
Archibald's Adventures offers a gameplay mixed of action and puzzle elements with gradually rising complexity. You start as a boy on a skateboard in a bunch of easy levels, but that's just a warm up. Soon you will roll in a robotic vehicle capable of riding on walls and ceilings, you will fly on a jet device or remotely control a mysterious floating bubble able to switch distant mechanisms or transport objects.
With 191 levels, the game will keep you entertained for many hours!
Car Jack Streets from Tag Games

The player takes control of Randal Meyers, a petty criminal with a major gambling addiction, who's found himself in arrears to the Italian mob. Now that his debt has reached the nice round sum of $1,000,000, the mob boss Frankie decides it's time for Randal...

211w ago - Guerrilla Games Lead Online Game Designer Eric Boltjes has announced that in celebration of Killzone for PS2 turning five a Double XP weekend is in order, as follows:
November 26 will be a very special day for all of us here at Guerrilla. On that day, exactly five years ago, the very first Killzone title for PlayStation 2 hit the shelves in Europe.
Sure, the game had already been released in the US three weeks prior, but hey... Guerrilla is based in the Netherlands. We commemorate the 26th because that's the date that we were finally able to see the fruits of our labor in Dutch stores.
Of course, it would be a shame to leave this occasion unmarked - and I'm not talking about the champagne and strange Dutch snacks we'll undoubtedly be having at the studio. We also want to celebrate it with you, the fans. After all, the Killzone brand wouldn't be where it is today without your support. So here's what we have in store for you over the next few days:
Looking back at Killzone 1
Later this week on Killzone.com, Seb "Motherh" Downie and I are going to play through the first Killzone game for you. We'll be commenting on our favorite sections and wallowing in beer-induced nostalgia.
