Might and Delight: PID on PSN Detailed: More Than a Pretty Face

50°
98w ago - Might and Delight Co-Founder Jakob Tuchten has detailed PID (Planet in Distress) on PSN today, proclaiming it is more than a pretty face!

Below is the scoop, to quote: We have been developing our first title, PID (coming soon to PSN), for nearly two years now. Like all developers, we had to decide what our focus with the game would be.

The videogame medium is unique in the respect that it borrows from many other media, such as movies, radio, and the written word. The one aspect that separates games from movies or books is their ability to interact. But there are other distinctions worth mentioning, too.

A book is conventionally about the text; a movie is the combination of sound and pictures. A game experience, however, can be crafted using a varied palette and with a more unpredictable focus.

The balance between the different media incorporated within a game differs from project to project. That is the strength of videogames as a medium - but also the challenge for consumers.

As players, we usually carry our own set of expectations and opinions regarding the balance between the games' different sides. Some people prefer titles all about the story; others would discard anything that doesn't demonstrate visual beauty.

Of course, there are players...

Sony Adds More Titles to PlayStation Store Retro Games PSN Sale

50°
102w ago - Sony's Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team has announced the addition of more titles to their PS Store Retro Games PSN sale today!

To quote: Hello everybody. I hope you are all enjoying our current Retro Sale.

Just a quick update - I have been listening to all your comments and have got some more deals for you! See below for the full list of additions.

Now you will notice that Resident Evil 2 is on the list but be warned, this DOES NOT currently work on the PS Vita. We are aware of the issue and are trying to fix it - hopefully it will work on the PS Vita soon but I don't have an ETA yet.

Once the game has been fixed you will be able to re-download the game for PS Vita, but for now you can only purchase it through your PS3. Sorry to disappoint with this but I will see if we can replicate the offer once it is working for PS Vita - though I can't make any promises.

I recommend buying it now on the PS3 (if you have one) for the future to avoid disappoint on missing this sale opportunity.

These discounts will start on Wednesday 12th September once the weekly store update has happened. All offers will end on 19th September....
