Rumor: Monster Hunter 3 Coming to PlayStation Portable

50°
279w ago - As a follow-up to our previous article, according to a rough translation of Chinese site CNGBA (linked above) citing a Japanese magazine scan, a Capcom Official said in a recent interview that they have not yet decided if Monster Hunter 3 will be a Wii exclusive.

The site speculates that a portable version of Monster Hunter 3 for the PSP is likely to exist.

While there is still no concrete evidence to back up these claims, the idea of Monster Hunter 3 heading to PlayStation Portable is quite feasible if history repeats itself... based on Capcom's success with portable gaming consoles.

Needless to say, until official confirmation is available this is being dubbed a rumor.
 

Crash Commando for PlayStation 3 Coming Soon to PSN!

279w ago - EPOS Game Studios CEO Olof Gustafsson shared the following today via PS Blog:

Hi all! This is Olof Gustafsson and Magnus Isaksson from EPOS Game Studios writing our first entry on the Blog, and we are going to introduce you all to Crash Commando for PS3, available soon on PlayStation Network!

It is a side-scrolling shooter that we think can and will satisfy any urge of frag-fests during Xmas and the cold months thereafter – killing friends and strangers in comic violence on PSN.

As this is the first game from us as a company – we know most of you have never heard about EPOS at all before. EPOS Game Studios is a small studio located in Sweden with a 5-man production team – with main occupations being split up between 2 programmers, 2 artists and a sound guy.

The idea:

The initial idea for Crash Commando was inspired by a lot of different titles over the last two decades. One game that springs to mind is JETPAC on the old Commodore VIC-20. The challenge was to create a fun game that clearly flirts with the retro genre, giving the players the opportunity to play in teams or against each other in real-time, incorporating the depth of a modern game while maintaining the retro core values.

Halo Wars Coming March 3rd in America, February 27th in Europe

50°
279w ago - It has been confirmed today that Halo Wars will be released in North America on March 3rd, while it will hit Europe on February 27th.

To quote: Ensemble Studios' Xbox 360 real-time strategy game Halo Wars finally has a release date. It will deploy/move out/establish a beachhead/random other armed forces metaphor on March 3rd in North America and on February 27th in Europe.

The game's now available for pre-order at several different retailers, if you're the type who likes to plunk down money months in advance for a game that you could easily pre-order the week before (just sayin').

As reported last month, pre-ordering the game's $80 Limited Collector's Edition and get an exclusive in-game vehicle and early access to the Mythic Map Pack for Halo 3, among other things.

The release will be a bittersweet day for Ensemble Studios. They're obviously pretty psyched about the project but the studio, best known for the Age of Empires series, will be closing its doors when work is completed on the game.
 

Lumines Supernova Coming to PSN Soon with LittleBigPlanet Skin!

280w ago - Q Entertainment's Executive Producer Tetsuya Mizuguchi announced that LUMINES Supernova is coming very soon to PSN:

Hello from Tokyo! This is Tetsuya Mizuguchi from Q Entertainment.

Back in 2005, the original concept for the PSP was to be the Walkman of the 21st century. This new handheld machine was packed full of promises, so we worked hard to have a game ready for the hardware launch. That game was called "Lumines".

The inspiration for Lumines came to me one night as I was sitting on a sandy beach looking up at the starry skies. Beautiful graphics, powerful sound, and the ability to affect both while playing, all packed into such a tiny portable package - Lumines was my answer to the 21st century walkman!





So here we are now in 2008. High-definition graphics have become the new standard and online technology has advanced, bringing the world even closer together. Into this environment comes the PlayStation 3, with built-in hard drive and Blu-ray disc support, as well as full online capabilities. I think the PS3 is really helping to drive this technology trend. I am very pleased that the latest version of Lumines - LUMINES Supernova - will be available on this powerful platform.

Well, it's not 2006 anymore,...
