Atlus Introduces a Super-Mega-Ultra 50% Off PSN Sale Tomorrow

179w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has introduced a super-mega-ultra 50% off PSN sale which begins tomorrow.

To quote: "What if we can spoil our fans for the holidays by cutting something in half?"

This question, self-posed, is what put everything in motion. From there, it was basically a lot of late nights, major damage to office furniture, a couple of trips to the emergency room, and a few really beautifully sliced watermelons.

Finally, we realized it had been under our noses the whole time: why not cut our games in half? Sadly, after destroying the last couple Demon's Souls Collector's Editions in the office, we realized the BEST option was to cut PRICES in half, hence this sale, which we're calling, in full caps for maximum attention-grabbage, the SUPER-MEGA-ULTRA 50% off PlayStation Network sale*.

The sale starts tomorrow, Tuesday, November 16th and ends on November 29th. Supplies aren't limited, because hey, it's digital, and the sale applies to the North American PlayStation Store. You will be able to use your PS3 or PSP to view the full list of discounted titles, or you can peep the list below:

Video: Nordcurrent Introduces Jewel Keepers: Easter Island PSP

50°
179w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has shared a video introduction of Jewel Keepers: Easter Island for Sony's PSP handheld console.

To quote: We are releasing Jewel Keepers: Easter Island, our latest minis title, very soon, and I wanted to tell you a few things about it.

As you might have guessed from the title, Jewel Keepers: Easter Island is a Match-3 game set on the Easter Island. As in all Match-3 games, you are required to swap adjacent jewels to put three jewels of the same colour next to each other in one row or column.

However, we have added a few gameplay elements that make Jewel Keepers different. You can have a look at the trailer to see the differences:





When you start a new level, all cells are grey. When jewels disappear, they turn grey cells into golden cells, and the goal of the game is to turn all cells into golden ones. This sounds pretty straight-forward when you think of an ordinary rectangular level.

However, as you progress further, you will be faced with more sophisticated level shapes, and it will get more and more challenging. And satisfying, once you complete the level.

And a few words about bonuses: we wanted to make bonuses a bit different from other games. We have time...
 

Sony Introduces Top Darts for PS3 on PlayStation Move via PSN

200°
181w 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...

181w 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...
 

Team17 Introduces Worms: Battle Islands for PlayStation Portable

100°
182w 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.

Game overview:

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.

Environments:

In this game the players can do battle in six different environments. Often in Worms games the game's themes have...
