39w ago - Square Enix Product Manager Charles McCarter has announced today that Final Fantasy III is coming to PSN on Tuesday!
To quote: PlayStation fans are no strangers to the FINAL FANTASY brand, and have continued to be devoted supporters over the series' 25 year history. Last fall, we brought two additional classic entries in this franchise to the PSN catalog as part of our Winter of RPGs campaign.
This time, I'm here to help close out summer with a bang. The list of numbered FINAL FANTASY titles available on the PlayStation family of consoles has been incredible, but alas, it has also been incomplete. That changes on September 25th, with the release of FINAL FANTASY III on PlayStation Network.
Now, PSP owners will be able to experience a piece of FINAL FANTASY history as they embark on a journey with the four Warriors of Light - Luneth, Arc, Refia, and Ingus -- as they battle to save the world from being engulfed in Darkness. A dangerous mission, to be sure; to accomplish their task, they will need an incredible set of skills.
FINAL FANTASY III was the first installment in the series to include the now-famous Job System. While this band of heroes starts out as Freelancers, with time, they will each be able to learn one of 23 different jobs!

40w ago - Killzone Community Editor Victor Zuylen has announced today that Killzone HD is coming to PSN on October 23rd and has revealed a PS3 Trophy List for the title below!
To quote: Announced last week, the Killzone Trilogy box set combines Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 with a high-definition PS3 remaster of the original Killzone.
Today we take a closer look at Killzone HD, and the challenging new trophy set that comes with it.

To quote: Home Tycoon is the first 3D city-building game where you can create your dream city from the ground up, explore it at street level as your own avatar, and share your metropolis with friends - and it's coming soon, exclusively to PlayStation Home.

41w ago - Sony Associate Producer Jenny Barbour has shared a developer diary video today announcing that Wonderbook: Book of Spells is coming to PS3 on November 13th, 2012.
To quote: I wanted to give you an update on a project that we are incredibly excited about here at PlayStation: Wonderbook.
Although we only announced it a few months ago, our team at London Studio has been working hard on the technology behind Wonderbook for years.
We recently sat down with the team to create a series of "making of" diaries that give you a closer look at the development of Wonderbook. To kick off these developer diaries, the team focused on the core technology that helped form the foundation of the project.
The first game to use this new technology is the product of our collaboration with J.K. Rowling, Wonderbook: Book of Spells. By taking PlayStation Move's augmented reality capabilities and pairing them with the Wonderbook peripheral, we were able to create a truly immersive, magical world in which you'll be able to learn how to cast many spells including: Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, with your very own spell book and wand.
