SOE Confirms PayDay: The Heist to Launch on PSN This Month

100°
133w ago - Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) Executive Director of Business Development Chris Sturr has confirmed today that Payday: The Heist is set to launch later this month on PSN.

To quote: Word on the street is that to pull off the biggest score, a heist must be planned and outlined to the very last detail with perfect team members, unbeatable weapons and unrecognizable disguises.

That being said, SOE & OVERKILL Software need a little more time to assemble the ideal squad and attack strategy for our highly anticipated adrenaline-pumping first person shooter, PAYDAY: The Heist.

With this in mind, SOE and the talented OVERKILL team have decided to push PAYDAY's official launch day to later in October, ensuring the overall game quality and potential score for all heist team members.

Not a PAYDAY crew member yet and hoping to get in on the loot? SOE has extended PRE-ORDERS - which have been excellent to date - to gather an even larger body of potential crew to co-operate with at launch!

For our established crew members, PAYDAY will still be awarded to those who purchased all four PSN titles in our inaugural PlayStation Network PLAY event, according to the terms of that program.

Your continued loyalty and...

Video: Closure at Fantastic Fest 2011: New Visuals for PSN Launch

100°
134w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared some new video footage today from Fantastic Fest 2011 showcasing Closure's new challenges and visuals for its PSN launch below.

To quote: "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" The world of Closure, an upcoming PSN exclusive, pushes this philosophical question to the limit. If you don't see that tree, not only doesn't it make a sound - it doesn't even exist.

As Austin's Fantastic Fest kicked off last night, PlayStation hosted an indie arcade filled with games coming exclusively to PSN. You might be familiar with most of the titles on display, as we've talked quite a bit on the Blog about Journey, Retro/Grade, and Okabu. As the developers were setting up their stations, I was immediately drawn to a title that we only just introduced you to: Closure.

Closure is being developed by just two full-timers: Lead Designer and Programmer Tyler Glaiel and Artist John Schubbe. Glaiel guided me through the early parts of the game, and answered a few questions for PlayStation.Blog readers.





PlayStation.Blog: After announcing the game here on the PlayStation Blog, you demoed the game at PAX....
