281w ago - Today Kimmo Lahtinen of Housemarque shared the following via PS Blog:

Hi, my name is Kimmo Lahtinen and I was the programming lead for Housemarque on Super Stardust Portable. Super Stardust Portable is the PSP version of our previously released PS3 title Super Stardust HD with some nice additions we think you'll enjoy.

And you'll be able to enjoy them very soon. Super Stardust Portable will be available for download on the PlayStation Store on Thursday, December 4th for just $9.99!





If there is one word to describe the game, that would be 'intense'. Your goal in the game is to simply destroy the waves after waves of enemies we throw at you and try to not get killed. If you're not constantly on the edge of your seat when trying to blow up everything in sight with dozens of asteroids coming at you all the while screen is filled with explosions and fireworks, you should probably apply for a job as an astronaut or something.

When we first got the idea from Sony about doing a PSP version of the game, we were thrilled. We think that Super Stardust is a perfect fit for a portable device, do a 10 minute session of Endless while riding on the bus into school.

Koei MMORPG Uncharted Waters Online Coming to Japan in 2009

50°
283w ago - Dynasty Warriors and Romance of the Three Kingdoms series developer Koei is bringing their popular MMORPG, Uncharted Waters Online, to the PlayStation 3 in Japan during 2009.

According to Siliconera, the game is based off the Uncharted Waters series of games, the first of which was released on the Super NES in 1992.

This MMO sends players into the ocean, but not as pirates. Taking cues from history, Uncharted Waters is set in the Age of Discovery when Europe explored the seas- picking one of six nationalities, and one of the three basic classes in order to engage in trading, exploration and sea battles.

No information regarding pricing or subscription fees have been released at this time. Sadly, Uncharted Waters Online and its expansion (Cruz del Sur) are currently available only in Asia, so it seems unlikely this PS3 version would make it into the Western market.

284w ago - While speaking with Variety, Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser gave some disappointing news about the downloadable content that Xbox 360 user's were promised to come out by the end of the year.

While its still on track to be released for Microsoft exclusively, he's just not sure if we'll see it by the end of the year.

"Me: On another topic, I have to ask you about the "GTA IV" downloadable content you're doing. Do you still expect that to come out this year?"

"DH: I'm not sure. It's going well. But we don't know a date. We hope to be announcing that in the next few weeks. We're still figuring out a few things. We're more focused on quality than dates, always have been. But the development is going really good. It's shaping up to be something we're very proud of. That was our goal."

By saying "Not sure," we're 'pretty sure' that means we won't be seeing any new content until next year. Considering as we write this article, the date is November 9th – 52 days until the year ends. If they don't even have a date set and their still developing it, we're probably not seeing it till 2009.

Here is even more proof. Houser said the content of...
