3d ago - Project Lead Sanabu Washizuka announced that Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God is out today on PS Vita.
To quote: What a delectably delicious day it is! The roguelike RPG Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God launches today. Sorcery Saga is exclusive to PS Vita and is available at both retail and on PlayStation Store.
Like the name suggests, it's wacky, fun, and a real challenge. Today, we wanted to give all you folks an overview of the game.
So what is Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God all about?
Sorcery Saga tells the story of Pupuru and her brave quest to save her favorite curry restaurant from the big, bad curry chain that's just moved into town. Harmless, right? Wrong! In order to do so, Pupuru and her grumpy (and always hungry) creature friend, Kuu, must travel to find ingredients to make the legendary curry.
Along the way, Pupuru meets many interesting and strange people, including the rather forward Gigadis and the mysterious, non-committal Puni.
How Does This Thing Play?
As Pupuru, you'll enter a dungeon and travel on a grid-like system. Attacks are turn-based, but what makes Sorcery Saga truly challenging is its roguelike quality. Meaning, if you fall in a dungeon, you lose all your items...
3d ago - Half of Ivent Games' Lyubomir Iliev announced that Strength of the Sword 3 is out today on PlayStation 3 with a fresh video trailer below.
To quote: Helloeveryone - Ivent Games here to announce that Strength of the Sword 3 is out today on PS3! I know you've never heard of us before, so I think an introduction is in order.
We're a tiny, indie team, comprised of just two people: me (Lyubomir Iliev) and my friend and colleague Georgi Rakidov.
For the past five years we've been hard at work on developing our first project: Strength of the Sword 3. It's a downloadable, challenge-driven sword fighting game exclusive to PS3. In it, you take control of a mechanical knight sent from the heavens to battle a rising evil that has swept the land... and that's pretty much all the story we're going to give you. Yeah.
But this isn't a game about story. This is a game about CHALLENGE! It's very old-school in that regard. It's the kind of game you "beat" instead of just "finish."
Strength of the Sword 3 has quite a different kind of combat system that combines action, strategy, and management challenges, centered on three types of resources and their offensive/defensive uses.
3d ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty announced today that the IGN PlayStation application is out today on PS4.
Below are the details, to quote: Greetings once again, PlayStation.Blog! My name's Colin, IGN's Senior Editor.
You may have seen me skulking around IGN PlayStation and making terrible predictions on Podcast Beyond, but today, I'm not here to make any pizza bets with you. No, I'm here to tell you about something exciting we've cooked up for PS4 owners.
IGN for PlayStation, our new app for PS4, is available today, and I'm pleased to tell you that you can download it for yourself - free of charge - when PlayStation Store updates. The app is currently exclusive to PS4, and will come to PS3 and PS Vita next year.
How does this benefit you, exactly? IGN's PS4 app will make you more popular with your friends, give you more energy, and even make the food you eat taste better (that's not true). But more importantly, our PS4 app will give you direct access to all of IGN's video content, letting you create custom playlists, while finding and consuming the exact content you're seeking.
What's truly cool about the app, however, is how granular you can get with it. You can rapidly come in and out of full-screen view, minimize a video...

1w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton announced that Gran Turismo 6 is officially out on PS3 today, with details from Kazunori on Lunar Racing.
To quote: Today, Gran Turismo 6 takes to the track. In keeping with the series' MO, Polyphony Digital has once again created an incredibly sophisticated and convincing racing simulation, which proudly wears the developer's unconditional love for the automobile on its sleeve.
And alongside the huge roster of new cars available to take for a spin, and the 37 tracks waiting to be mastered, Polyphony has thrown in something of a surprise. For the first time ever in a Gran Turismo title, you have the opportunity to swap the racing circuits of planet Earth for the Moon, and pilot a lunar rover across its surface. Hands up if you saw that coming?
"We had been working for a while on simulating the stars properly in the game, and the moon was being recreated very accurately. While we were working on that, the idea just came out of the blue," recalled Polyphony president and series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, when we caught up with him at the game's launch in Ronda, Spain, earlier this week.
"We thought, 'wouldn't it be interesting if you could drive on the surface of...
