162w ago - XDev Studio Europe Senior Producer Mark McGinley has introduced Top Darts today for PS3 on PlayStation Move via PSN and shared some details, as follows:
The development team at Devils Details have been fully immersing themselves in both the sport and the Move Controller for several months now.
We believe they've come up with something that's not only true to the real game thanks to the precision of the Move Controller, but which is also a great deal of fun.
The game's controls have been specially designed to take advantage of the three dimensional depth and precision of the PlayStation Move and the interaction between player and dart is better than any darts game you've ever played before.
When bringing the sport to the PlayStation 3 we wanted to ensure that the game was not only a challenge that rewards practice, but also a great game to play with friends.
Top Darts combines a mix of classic Dart games, like 501, Around The Clock and Cricket, with extensive League & Cup competition modes, as well as a large selection of varied game modes.
If competing against your friends is more your thing Top Darts allows up to 8 players to battle it out across a range of competitive games and events specifically...
163w ago - Update: Several users have confirmed that Sony's PlayStation Rewards invites are indeed going out and the program is now live!
Sony PlayStation Network Sr. Director Susan Panico has introduced PlayStation Rewards today, where PlayStation fans can earn exclusive status and recognition.
To quote: Today, we're excited to share news of the launch of PlayStation Rewards, a new program that recognizes and rewards our users for simply doing what they love - playing games and interacting with the entertainment content that PlayStation has to offer.
We really wanted to create something that says, "thank you" for being a loyal PlayStation fan.
In its initial launch tomorrow (Oct. 28th), PlayStation Rewards will be an invitation-only beta to all eligible PlayStation Plus and Gamer Advisory Panel (GAP) members. We're kicking things off as a beta so that we can get feedback from our most loyal fans in order to make it the best possible rewards program it can be.
It's also worth noting that during the beta phase, the program will be focused on PlayStation 3 owners, but we hope to include PSP users as well not too far down the road. Oh, and one more thing: PlayStation Rewards will be free...
164w ago - Today Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has introduced Worms: Battle Islands for the PlayStation Portable handheld console.
To quote: This winter sees the release of the latest game in our long running Worms series, Worms: Battle Islands, on PSP available from PlayStation Store.
Worms: Battle Islands marks the third time that the series has made an appearance on the PSP, and the game is packed with content and great new features, some of which I'll be talking about in this post.
The first thing to say about the game is that at its core it's the traditional 2D Worms experience.
It's a turn based game where players use a mix of strategy and skill to move their army of worms about a landscape, and attack one another with a range of funny weapons (exploding sheep, deadly bananas, fully automatic sub machine guns, etc.) until the last team standing are declared the winners. The physics are much more solid in this version and the game features a sizable inventory of forty different weapons and utilities, leading to more complex strategies and a more rewarding experience.
In this game the players can do battle in six different environments. Often in Worms games the game's themes have...
165w ago - Today SCEE Associate Producer Jan Kuczynski has shared Acquire Director Haruyuki Ohashi's thoughts on the introduction of No Heroes Allowed for PSP and PSPgo.
To quote: Jan Kuczynski here, European producer for No Heroes Allowed! We announced this game back at gamescom and I'm here today to give you some more nuggets of info.
Now, some of you might have had a sense of déjà-vu when you saw the Gamescom trailer and screenshots. Well you're not going crazy - this is actually the third game in a series - prequels What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord?! and What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord?! 2 were released in Europe by our good friends at NIS and Tecmo Koei.
Why the name change? Well there's only so much space on the title screen and what can I say - I'm a lazy typist...
For those of you who haven't played the previous games - where have you been?
You're missing out on one of the most unique strategy games on the PSP which has you digging out a dungeon full of monsters to defend the overlord of the underworld, Badman, from the disgusting goody-two-shoe heroes that seem intent to capture him and thwart his evil plans of world domination. How rude.
166w ago - Today Chandra Nair has introduced Ferrari The Race Experience via Sony's PlayStation Blog, and confirmed that the racing simulation video game will be hitting PSN tomorrow.
To quote: Beginning with Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli back in 2008 System 3 wanted to allow players to experience the raw power of the F430 Challenge and the massive challenge that comes with harnessing that power and keeping it together under pressure.
We won't lie; learning how to drive a proper racing machine is no simple task, but once you've mastered it you'll never be able to go back to 'arcade' mode ever again.
Ferrari The Race Experience takes that racing mantra and expands it in every way. The first thing we did with Ferrari The Race Experience was to create a fictional Career mode that allowed you to participate with whichever Ferrari you have in your Showroom. Now you have three racing series covering 'Classics' cars, 'Road' cars and 'GT' cars.
Each type of car brings with it completely different challenges. Classics cars are extremely raw. Steering is tough, braking is early and acceleration is sluggish but everyone is under the same conditions. You are what you are and...
