3 on 3 NHL Arcade Coming to PSN Tomorrow for PS3!

100°
285w ago - 3 on 3 NHL Arcade Lead Designer Matt Mahar made the following PlayStation Network announcement today:

Greetings from EA Sports! I'm Matt, lead designer for 3 on 3 NHL Arcade coming to PSN for PS3 tomorrow for $9.99. As you might know, there are no options out there for consumers to play an Arcade style hockey game.

There are Street versions of sports games, but Hockey has never been one of them and the NHL dev team felt that we could fill this void with a top quality product and give the users a game to enjoy. And PSN has it exclusively for the first week!





And, we want to turn people on about hockey – we truly believe it is the best sport on earth and want to show it off to people. So we built Arcade to attract people to play a hockey game when they might not usually play one. Also, it acts as a great creative outlet for our development team that has worked very hard on EA Sports NHL products.

3 on 3 NHL Arcade is being developed by the same team that brought you NHL 09, winner of 10 sports game of the year awards. Arcade provides a complete package with online and offline play, as well as Power-ups, 40 NHL superstars, stat tracking, and leaderboards. As far as game modes are concerned, we have Play Now and Online Play....

PS3 Price Drop Coming Soon Despite Sony Stating Otherwise?

100°
286w ago - We have all seen the reports of Sony stating that there will be not be a price drop for the PlayStation 3 anytime soon, but do you believe this to be true?

I have a very good feeling that Sony will be announcing a price drop for the PlayStation 3 soon in the upcoming months.

The reason why I say this is because many Web sites like Dell and Amazon have dropped the price of the system on their Web site as seen [Register or Login to view links].

As you can see, Dell has the PS3 priced at $339.99 and just last week Amazon had it listed for a little over $350.

I believe Sony might have a strategy behind this and is working with companies to determine how much they should drop the price of the PlayStation 3. Think about it, if Amazon has the PS3 listed at a little over $350 and there is not much of a sales spike, Sony would see that dropping the system $50 would not be effective.

Now if Dell has the system at $339.99 and the sales jump drastically, Sony would realize that dropping the system more than $50 would be an effective way to sell more consoles.

The reason Sony is saying they do not plan for a price drop anytime soon is because of business....

286w ago - Today PopCap Games Vice President of Video Game Platforms Greg Canessa announced that Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) and PopCap have teamed up to bring hit casual game titles to PSN and PlayStation 3 as follows:

Our first title is none other than the classic online puzzle game Bejeweled 2. Many of you may be familiar with the franchise - it has won dozens of awards and has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.

It's our biggest franchise at PopCap and our most successful title, which is why we chose Bejeweled 2 as our first title for PSN and PS3. The game is a natural fit for the platform - it plays great, looks great and is as compelling as ever.

And there is a ton of gameplay in Bejeweled 2 - four different game modes, more than 60 puzzles, power-ups, high-definition graphics and much more. And if you're like me, you'll sit there for hours playing late into the night, wondering why you're unable to pull yourself away!

The team at SOE has been fantastic to work with, and they share our vision of making the best versions of our games possible, with features that are specific to the PS3 platform.

For Bejeweled 2, that means exclusive stuff like Trophy support and PSP remote play, which you'll only find on PSN. We've got similar exclusive...
