20w ago - Developer Brian Provinciano announced today that their Retro City Rampage update adds Retro+ Mode and a Prototype Version with details below.
To quote: A new Retro City Rampage update has just dropped, which takes things both forward and backward! To celebrate the update, Retro City Rampage is on sale for $4.99.

RETRO+ Enhanced Graphics Mode
The "RETRO+" Enhanced Graphics Mode gives RCR a neo-retro boost with dynamic shadows, doubling the colors on screen. The shadows and increased contrast help sprites pop like never before. For purists, the original 8-bit mode is still there in all its glory, but if you're ready for a slight retro remix, RETRO+ is a great new way to enjoy the game.
"ROM" City Rampage, an 8-bit hardware-accurate prototype has also been added. Drive around Theftropolis with the strict limitations of 1980s hardware, sprite flicker and all.
Compare side by side how closely Retro City Rampage adheres to classic hardware and where it strays, and see what really was possible in 1989. See what actually could've been released on cartridge, had...
40w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Associate Product Marketing Manager Derek Osgood has shared a video preview today of Beyond: Two Souls starring Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page which arrives this October 8th.
To quote: Last year at E3 we announced the much anticipated title from Heavy Rain creators Quantic Dream and the mind of visionary director David Cage.
BEYOND: Two Souls is a psychological action thriller starring Oscar nominee Ellen Page (Inception, Juno) in the lead role of Jodie Holmes and featuring Quantic Dream's unique brand of gameplay.
BEYOND tells the story of Jodie, a young woman who's known since birth that she is different from everyone else. She possesses supernatural powers through her psychic link to an invisible entity she calls Aiden, and this gift has changed her life forever.
Playing through 15 years of Jodie's life promises to deliver one of the most thrilling and powerfully emotional experiences on PS3.
Today, we're pleased to announce that Ellen will be joined by another Oscar nominee in Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Spider-Man) who will star as Nathan Dawkins, a government scientist who works with Jodie to analyse her powers.

53w ago - Red Hare Studios Producer Wee Lit Koh has invited fans to flex their Lexicon in Page Chronica, which is out Tuesday on PSN with a video trailer below.
To quote: During the making of our game Page Chronica, a common question has been "Is this an edutainment game?" Whenever we hear that word, our bodies cringe and we adamantly deny the claim.
In the gaming industry, the term conjures memories of boring school educational games that would alienate the majority of our console gamers. So for a long period of time, we would refuse to admit that our game is such a thing.
However, we eventually lightened up to the notion. That is not to say that we have fully accepted the classification, but it is more of a matter of tweaking our perspectives. So to all the edutainment-haters out there, we're here to convince you to withhold judgment and give Page Chronica a try.
Page Chronica is not your average side-scrolling action-platformer. It is an action-oriented word-puzzle game that combines elements of action-platformers with the forming of words. Capture letters and form words of various lengths and complexity to gain the power to unleash a variety of Spells and Attacks. The stronger the words formed, the more powerful you will be.
61w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has shared a Retro City Rampage launch trailer video for PS3 and PS Vita today, with the title arriving this Tuesday for fans.
To quote: After months (years?) of anticipation, the big moment is almost here: VBlank Entertainment's long-gestating 8-bit open-world homage Retro City Rampage comes to PS3 and PS Vita tomorrow on PSN, complete with the ever-coveted Cross Buy and Cross Save features.
If you've never heard of Retro City Rampage, a) shame on you and b) I scarcely know where to begin! Imagine jamming all your favorite 8-bit games into a sprawling open world ala Grand Theft Auto and you'll have a rough sense of this game's special brand of pixelated magic.
Retro City Rampage has more than 60 Story missions that span driving, stealth, platforming, shooting, swimming, and questing (just to name a few) as well as 40 Arcade challenges if you're in need of a quick release.
Looking for more numbers? Try these: 25+ weapons and power-ups, 50+ driveable vehicles, and 2.5 hours of glorious chiptune symphonies. And let's not forget what might be the most important number of all: $14.99.
Let's give the freshly released launch trailer a looksee!
