7w ago - XMPT Games Developer Luke Staddon announced today alongside a video that Monster Hotel is now available as part of their PlayStation Mobile spotlight.
To quote: I'm Luke, from XMPT Games: a small, five-person indie development studio based in Southampton, England. We've been together as a company for less than a year, and are best known for our PS Mobile release, Penguin Party.
We started XMPT Games because we all love playing games and we wanted to start releasing our own. We had all dabbled in various aspects of game development, and decided that it would be fun to see what we could create by working together.
We love taking part in game jams - pitting our design, coding and graphics skills to the test against a time limit - so for our second PS Mobile title we decided to run our own internal game jam.
Picking the theme of the game ourselves just didn't seem in the spirit of game jamming, so we put out a request on our Facebook page for people to suggest topics around which we could base our game.
We ended up with about 50 different responses, and the next day we threw all of the suggestions into a hat and picked one out at random. The winner was "Harmony".
After discussing a whole bunch of ideas, we eventually settled on the concept for Monster...
7w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates, which feature Hotline Miami free for PS Plus members.
To quote: Put on a mask (did I mention they're all animal heads and that each one has a different benefit?) and 'take care' of anyone your answering machine tells you to. Sure, it may sound a little crazy, but that's part of Hotline Miami's appeal.
This top-down action game requires careful planning to execute the perfect take-downs. Starting tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download Hotline Miami for free on both PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.
There are also loads of spooky titles on sale as part of the Sale of the Dead, including recent sensation The Last of Us and other zombie favorites like Dead Island, Dead Nation, Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare and Telltale's The Walking Dead episodes.
All of these PS Plus benefits will be available after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, October 22nd.
Hotline Miami (PS Vita & PS3)
Free for PS Plus members, Regular Price: $9.99
Hotline Miami is a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the...
7w ago - Today a screenshot has surfaced showing the Friends List crossover from PS3 to PS4, which depicts a user playing Killzone: Shadow Fall on PlayStation 4, seen on friends list on the PlayStation 3.
To quote: "Someone recently leaked a screenshot showing what is the first ever PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 crossover.
As you can see in the above image, this is the first case of a PS4/PS3 crossover. If you do not understand what's going on in the picture allow me to explain. If you have a PlayStation Vita, then you know that you can see what everyone on your friends list is playing. The only difference is that PS3 users can't see what PlayStation Vita users are playing... yet.
This looks to NOT be the case with the PlayStation 4, because as you can clearly see, this XMB shot was taken from a PS3. It's only a matter of time until the PS4 arrives and this screenshot is only building my anticiption more and more."
