14w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian announced that Kat and Emmet join the Battle Royale today, and will be free for two weeks!
Below are the details, as follows: We're happy to follow up PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale's win for "Best Fighting Game" at the DICE Awards (the awards where all of the voting is done by other games industry pros), with a gift to all the players that have supported the project from the start.
I hear from a lot of you guys, and I know you've been waiting patiently... but that wait ends today! We've got two new PlayStation All-Stars joining the Battle Royale: Kat from Gravity Rush, and Emmett Graves from Starhawk.
Any fighting fan will tell you how much it means to have new characters joining a game, but it's even better because - as promised - these DLC characters are totally free for two weeks!
Wait, "free for two weeks" sounds funny... Does that mean if I download them, after two weeks is up I have to pay? Nope. You have a two week window to download the DLC. If you do, the characters are yours free, forever and ever. You can play them online, offline, upside...

To quote: The day has finally arrived! Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time goes on sale today in North America. We are so stoked with how the game came together; this is a very proud moment for the whole team!

We love how the demos have been received by the Sly Cooper fans, but we have also loved watching a new, younger audience pick up and enjoy the Sly Cooper experience. It's been hard keeping things under wraps for so long, but I can't wait for players to uncover the latest plot twists first hand! Find out more in the launch trailer.

15w ago - Sony Director of Product Planning & Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa has announced today that the PlayStation Home Arcade App is available today for PS Vita.
Below are the details, to quote:
Since launch, PS Vita owners have gained access to lots of great applications on our new handheld, and we don't have any plans to slow down. We're rolling out a brand new app that brings many classic arcade games, along with a few new titles that were previously available only through PlayStation Home. We call it PlayStation Home Arcade.
PlayStation Home Arcade is available today and serves as a portal for some of your favorite arcade classics like Centipede, Asteroids, and Frogger. We're also offering more recent titles, like Icebreaker and the very addicting Scribble Shooter, which was previously only available in PlayStation Home.
The PlayStation Home Arcade app is a free download in the PlayStation Store, and you can purchase games from directly within the app, starting at $1.49 each. To celebrate the launch, we're offering Ice Breaker, WipEout 2D and a demo of Scribble Shooter absolutely free!
If you've purchased any of the available titles as arcade cabinets within PlayStation Home, you can download these titles again on PS Vita at no additional cost.
15w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King has confirmed that the Pinball Arcade Twilight Zone Table is out today.
To quote: This is Bobby King from FarSight Studios, the makers of the Pinball Arcade for PS3 and PS Vita. We are super excited to announce that today, thanks to our fans, we'll be releasing our re-creation of one of the greatest pinball tables ever - Twilight Zone!
With the help of the pinball legend Roger Sharpe, who did the original table's licensing deal for Williams/Bally, we were able to get the CBS-owned rights to the TV show. This deal was too expensive for us to make the numbers work, though.
We would have lost money with the number of sales we were projecting. But thanks to our players and pinball fans all around the world who chipped in through Kickstarter.com - we got the extra money that we needed to make the deal for the Twilight Zone IP!
This is such a great table. Personally, it's my second favorite to play in our game right behind Star Trek: The Next Generation (which we'll be releasing before the end of next month, but I'm getting ahead of myself).
Twilight Zone is awesome! It's an unbelievably deep gameplay experience. One of the features...
