11w ago - Beatshapers Founder and CEO Alexey Menshikov announced today that Ready to Run is racing to PS4 this year with details below.

To quote: Hi there! This is Alexey Menshikov, CEO of Ukraine-based Beatshapers. I'm excited finally back to announce our new project - Ready to Run.

In case you're not familiar with Beatshapers, we're a small developer and digital publisher from Kiev, Ukraine. To date, we've published 19 games on PlayStation Store. The most significant are BreakQuest series (minis), StarDrone Extreme (PS Vita), Jetpack Joyride (minis) and Furmins (PS Vita, made together with Housemarque).

Ready to Run is a furious RC car racing game in a unique retro-futuristic setting, and it's actually planned as a franchise, with the first title coming exclusively to PS4.

Here are a few of Ready to Run's features:

• Highly responsive, arcade-style RC racing physics
• 15+ futuristic radio-control cars with various designs
• Single city environment featuring endless track configurations for different race modes
• Real-time and asynchronous multiplayer modes
• Various scoreboards with filters, with an emphasis on PSN friends

We've always been fans of RC racing games, and it seems now's the time for a new title on PlayStation Store....
 

Sony Announces Curve Studios Mega Bundle is Now Available

11w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke announced today that their Mega Bundle is now available with details below.

To quote: Hey everyone! Rob here from Curve Studios. We're probably one of the most active indie studios on PlayStation right now - we released five indie titles for PS3 and four titles for Vita in 2013, and we've got at least four more coming this year that we'll be announcing very soon.

We've been thinking about making a bundle of our games for a while, and we're happy to announce that you'll be able to pick up four of our best titles from 2013 in a single, happy package right now.

These games would cost over $45 if you purchased them individually, but we're launching the bundle for the first two weeks at only $14.99, with a further discount for PlayStation Plus members, which means Plus subscribers only pay $13.49 for the following games:

• Lone Survivor (Survival Horror)
• Thomas Was Alone (Puzzle Platformer)
• Proteus (Exploration)
• Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark (Action Platformer)

That's four titles for the regular price of one - way better than buy one, get one free - and did we mention all of these games are cross buy enabled? No, we did not! But they are, so you can swap between the PS3 and PS Vita versions...

12w ago - Roll7 Director Tom Hegarty announces that OlliOlli launches today for PlayStation Vita with details below.

To quote: OlliOlli is out today, exclusive to PlayStation Vita for $12.99. Those of you with a PlayStation Plus account will get a 20% discount on that price for the first week.

We're super chuffed (yes, chuffed, we're chuffed), we can't wait to get your feedback and see what scores you post, especially on the Daily Grind. We're giving you a five-day head start before Nikos, our senior coder, is allowed near a Vita and starts busting some serious high-scoring moves. You have been warned...

Once everyone has trained up enough and we start to see some ludicrous scores, we'll be running a competition to see who can get the highest score on a particular day of the Daily Grind. The lucky winner will receive one of our exclusive (There's literally only two of them!) OlliOlli Skateboard, Helmet, and MANDATORY First Aid Safety kit, but more about that soon!

We really hope you enjoy OlliOlli. We poured a lot of love, time, and devotion into this project, and we hope that shows!

If you fancy any tips and advice on how to rack up some radical scores, then do check out our Creative Director John Ribbins displaying his uber skills in these...
