42w ago - Today Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team has announced that the Summer sale is officially here on PlayStation Network!
To quote: It's Summer!! The time of year when the sun comes out to play and we can enjoy late nights, early mornings and lots of fun.
And of course, for us gamers what it really means is a lot more time to play games, so what better time to introduce the PlayStation Store Summer Sale?
This year, PlayStation Store brings you some outstanding offers on over 50 titles. Starting on the 1st August, the PlayStation Store Summer Sale (or Winter Sale for all our readers shivering away over in Australia and New Zealand) runs all the way to 5th September 2012.
With full Blu-ray games, PlayStation Network titles, PS3 add-ons, PS one Classics, PSP games, minis and movies included, there's bound to be something here to tickle your fancy.
The deals include big savings on the likes of LA Noire Complete Edition (was €39.99, now €23.99, with an additional 15% off for Plus members) and Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition (was €24.99, now €17.99, with an additional 25% off for Plus members), but keep your eyes on the PlayStation Store for full details on what's on offer.
42w ago - 24 Caret Games Co-founder Matt Gilgenbach is here with a fresh video announcing that Retro / Grade officially blasts off on PlayStation Network this August 21st with details below.
To quote: Hey everyone, good news: We've finished our award-winning rhythm/shoot'em up, Retro/Grade!
The game will be released on August 21st exclusively on PS3, and will provide hours of mind-bending rhythm-based gameplay as you fight through reverse-timed space battles.
We've gotten many requests to make Retro/Grade's soundtrack available, so I'll go ahead and confirm that we'll be selling it on PSN. If you want the game and the soundtrack, there will be a discounted bundle - we'll have more details on pricing soon.
For those who aren't familiar with Retro/Grade, it's similar to a classic Shoot 'Em Up... in reverse! At the beginning of the game you stop a massive alien invasion, but all the destruction damages the space/time continuum, causing the flow of time itself to reverse.
What would have been the final boss is actually the beginning of your backwards journey. You must help Rick Rocket restore the continuity of space/time, before the temporal anomaly rips the universe a new time-hole!
43w ago - Dyad Creator Shawn McGrath has shared a video and details below confirming that the demo is available on PSN starting today.
To quote: Hey everyone, Shawn here again. I'm dropping by to let you know the Dyad Demo launches today! Yay!
Mare Sheppard of Metanet Software, David Kanaga (Dyad's composer) and I worked tirelessly through the night to create a new trailer announcing the launch of the demo.
It's a playful take on the first Dyad trailer and other game trailers. I got to star in my very own trailer; that's pretty neat! I hope everyone has a good laugh, and yes, that's my real hair!
If the (overwhelmingly positive) reviews are correct, then Dyad is a game you have to play to fully understand - now's your chance! Check out Dyad's first five levels, and see if you groove with it. If you do, the PlayStation Plus discount continues this week.
If you're curious about the game, check out this blog post, and maybe this one too.
If you're more of an "official site" kind of person, you're in luck! There just happens to be an official site for Dyad, and it's...

43w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has announced that Foosball 2012 drops on PlayStation Network today and has shared the official launch trailer below.
To quote: Jakub from Grip Games here! Today is a great day for our small indie studio - Foosball 2012 is out today on PSN! I'm stopping by today to answer a few questions about the game.
Foosball 2012 is another entry in the line of not-so-typical-for-a-console-game sports, like darts, bowling, pool, or golf that we have seen recently on the PlayStation Store. If you weren't sure which platform to get the game on, we think you'll appreciate that when you buy the game for PS3, you'll get the PS Vita version for free and the other way around!
A lot of people ask us "Why foosball?" and we keep telling them "Why not?" Other games that wouldn't seem to be well-suited to a console experience managed to capture the essence of those games, and we hope to do the same with Foosball 2012.
It is not just about playing foosball, it's about playing a quick, skill-based game, that is easy to handle, but difficult to master. A game with a great multiplayer component and entertaining single-player mode, lots of customizations and Leaderboards to keep track of where you and your friends are standing against the global competition.
