259w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has announced today that Planet Minigolf will be coming to PS3 exclusively on Sony's PlayStation Network.

To quote: Grab your clubs and get ready to tee off! I am thrilled to announce that ZEN Studios is applying the same battle-tested ball physics engine from the acclaimed ZEN Pinball to bring you the PlayStation Network exclusive Planet Minigolf.

What does that mean for you? Expect an exciting new standard in golf action combining stunning 3D graphics and smart play with true-to-life physics, including precisely calculated ball dynamics.

Aspiring to be the best all-around golf experience, we've built in a deep single-player campaign that transports players to several exhilarating courses around the world and comes loaded with six customizable characters, remarkable cartoon-style visuals and a daunting 144 unique holes packed with a variety of hazards and interactive objects.

In addition to the single player campaign, we have also included a full suite of multiplayer options - from a local hotseat mode to regular weekly tournaments and worldwide competitions where players can battle it out to see whose nation reigns supreme.

That's all for now, but we'll have more exciting news hitting over the next couple...

259w ago - Today Creat Studios Director of Business Development Scott Hyman has announced that Mushroom Wars is coming to PSN this Thursday for $9.99.

To quote: It's Scott at [Register or Login to view links] again, here to tell you about our seventh (yes, seventh!) release for PlayStation Network in 2009. Our new RTS, Mushroom Wars, will be available for $9.99 this Thursday, October 15.

Now, you're asking, what exactly is Mushroom Wars? Do I have to battle evil, killer mutant zombie mushrooms? Well, as cool as that might sound, (hmmm...maybe there's a future PSN release!), you don't battle the mushrooms themselves, but you will do battle for the mushrooms.

Mushroom Wars is a fast-paced and accessible RTS, with a quaint, anime-inspired visual style where you send your cute armies into battle, upgrade your mushroom bases, improve your weaponry and fight skirmishes in close-quarter maps.

You can play against the AI or kick your friends' butts in Campaign mode. The Skirmish mode lets you quickly jump right into battles. Local multiplayer allows up to four players to tough it out to see who's the baddest army in the meadow.





We're very excited about Mushroom Wars, and we're confident that you'll...

I'm pleased to inform you that you will now have a chance to take Savage Moon on the go as it will now be available on the PSP! Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign will feature new gameplay and content galore.

For more details, here are my colleagues at FluffyLogic:

Hello - this is Ana (the producer) and Tom (the designer) from FluffyLogic again (you can read our last blog-post's for Sony here & here). We would like to tell you about the latest developments in the Savage Moon universe: the Insectocytes have invaded the PSP!

For the last few months FluffyLogic personnel have been toiling away in an underground bunker to produce the mobile incarnation of the game: Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign - featuring new weapons, new bugs, news maps and new gameplay.

For those new to the game, Savage Moon is a tower defense strategy game which launched on PS3 last winter. The game pits the player (humans), who is trying to mine valuable minerals from sentient asteroids or Imoons, against massive chitinous, armoured bugs called 'Insectocytes'.

As the humans burrow into the ground, the Imoon produces its own auto-immune response...

259w ago - Microsoft's Windows 7 isn't arriving until the October 22nd, however, details have surfaced over the weekend that indicate Windows 8 will come with 128-bit support.

This information was derived from Robert Morgan's [Register or Login to view links] (Google cache), who is a senior research and development engineer at Microsoft.

Needless to say, the information has now been removed from his profile.

To quote: In it, he says he's "working in high security department for research and development involving strategic planning for medium and longterm projects."

He goes on to say his R&D projects include: "128-bit architecture compatibility with the Windows 8 kernel and Windows 9 project plan." He's also responsible for "forming relationships with major partners: Intel, AMD, HP and IBM.

A 128-bit version of Windows 8 would represent the next leap in performance. According to Microsoft's plans to release a new desktop version of Windows every three years, Windows 8 is scheduled to become available in 2012."
 

PlayStation Home-esque Experience Coming to XBox Live?

300°
260w ago - Today Joystiq (linked above) received some interesting info from a reader, who claimed to have taken part in a survey run by Microsoft which featured avatars playing classic arcade games in a virtual arcade setting.

If that sounds familiar, you probably played PlayStation Home before.

To quote: If a consumer survey sent over to us by a tipster is to be believed, Microsoft is looking to bring a virtual Avatar arcade to the Xbox 360. Some of the potential names listed in the survey are "Game Room," "RetroCade," "Tower of ROM," and "Classics LIVE." Yeah, we're partial to "Tower of ROM" also.

If the proposed service sounds familiar, that's because it's nearly identical to PlayStation Home's arcade spaces - like Namco's virtual arcade - just replace the dead-eyed dopplegangers of Home with the scrunchable avatars of Xbox 360.

The second survey question sent to us asks, "Which of the following names would most compel you to purchase the product?" indicating that the "Tower of ROM" might not be a free space but could instead have a fee associated with it.
