29w ago - Capcom Marketing Manager Tristan Corbett has posted up the launch trailer for Okami HD announcing that it is hitting PSN today!
To quote: At long last I'm pleased to share that the great goddess Amaterasu is ready to save the world once again! Okami HD is launching on PSN today in North America and will be available to download for $19.99 later today with the PlayStation Store update.
In case anyone needs it, here's a quick refresher on all the things we've added to Okami HD:
• The critically acclaimed classic brought to new life on PS3
Full native 1080p visuals brings Okami's stunning visuals into the HD era
• PlayStation Move motion controller support allows players to enjoy the celestial brush in new and intuitive ways
• Trophy Support, including a Platinum trophy, gives players all new challenges to complete
I'd like to extend a big thanks to the PSN community as well as PlayStation.Blog for all their support for Okami HD. Your support helped make this project happen and it is greatly appreciated!
I can say for myself that this title was hands down the most fun I've had working on any project here at Capcom. I hope you all enjoy the game as much as we've enjoyed bringing it to you.
41w ago - Today Mathew Kumar of the Sound Shapes Team has announced that the title officially hits PSN today, and has made available a new Sound Shapes launch trailer below!
To quote: Sound Shapes is out on PSN today! It's the culmination of a long journey for our boss-men Jonathan Mak and Shaw-Han Liem, who worked on the concept for... more years than they probably want me to say before the reveal at E3 2011, and having worked on the game for a year myself now I think I can speak for the whole team when I say we just want you to play it.
Like... we don't want you to finish reading this blog post, or even probably watch the launch trailer we made. We made Sound Shapes for you to play! So when today's update goes live, get yourself over to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita and pick it up!
The title is $14.99 ($11.99 for PlayStation Plus members this week only) and part of the PSN Play promotion, so if you buy one or more other of the games in the promotion you'll get an increasing amount of money back.
Most importantly, however - Sound Shapes is a cross-play title. Whether you buy it on PS3 or PS Vita, you receive both versions for one price. We cannot stress this enough.
51w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Associate Product Marketing Manager Derek Osgood has unveiled the Resistance: Burning Skies launch trailer below announcing that the title hits PS Vita today!
To quote: The wait is over! Resistance: Burning Skies hits store shelves and PSN today, ushering in a new era of portable first-person shooters. Dual-analog control isn't the only thing going for Resistance: Burning Skies though.
In addition to the multiplayer features and weapon functionality we've introduced over the last few months, Resistance: Burning Skies brings a new hero into the war between man and the Chimera - and Tom Riley's story is one you won't want to miss. Take a peek at the debut of our Resistance: Burning Skies launch trailer!
This isn't all we have to share with you today though. You'll remember back in April when we talked about Resistance: Burning Skies' multiplayer modes we mentioned that through "near," Resistance: Burning Skies introduces a new social perk which rewards players with XP multipliers that you can carry into multiplayer battle. Today we're going to shed a little more light on exactly what that means.
So, as you play through the multiplayer experience...
55w ago - Mortal Kombat Producer Hector Sanchez has announced alongside posting up the launch trailer that Mortal Kombat officially hits PS Vita today!
To quote: Developing new and inventive missions for the Bonus Challenge Tower was something our talented Design team at Netherrealm Studios jumped at.
It allowed us to not only come up with unique and innovative scenarios that took advantage of the numerous PS Vita features (such as the touchscreen and the accelerometer), but also a long-awaited opportunity to create challenges based around the DLC characters that released after the launch of the PS3 version. Yes, that means Freddy Krueger missions!
With Mortal Kombat finally emerging today on PS Vita game card and via PSN, our designers at NetherRealm Studios wanted to share some of their favorite missions from the all-new Challenge Tower. We hope you guys have just as much fun playing through these missions as we had making them.
Brian Lebaron -- Designer, Mortal Kombat for PS Vita
