96w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a video today featuring Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon speaking on Freddy Krueger in the PlayStation 3 title along with the secret origins of the PS3 DLC characters.
To quote: In discussing the news, Boon shed light on the long, sometimes tangled genesis of Mortal's Kombat's other DLC characters - namely Rain, Skarlet, and Kenshi.
One began as a joke, one was an incorrect rumor, and one... well, you'll see.
Look for Freddy to hit PSN on August 9th for $4.99, and read on for my full chat with Ed Boon.
PlayStation.Blog: So what is the inspiration for bringing Freddy Krueger to Mortal Kombat as a DLC character?
Ed Boon, Creative Director, Netherrealm Studios: It was a number of things. It's kind of hard to choose a character who would fit well into the Mortal Kombat universe, with the blood and violence that's so associated with it. Kratos from God of War is a brutal, bloody character, so he makes sense.
When we had the discussions about the DLC characters, we knew that we wanted to add a returning character, a new character, but also a guest character....
96w ago - Creat Studios Marketing and PR Coordinator Bill Fryer has unveiled a video of the new Test Yourself DLC packs that will be hitting PSN next week.
To quote: The next two test blocks Test Yourself: Attention and Test Yourself: Memory will be available July 26th.
As their names imply, these add-ons will measure the user's attention and memory through a series of tests. These packs will be available in North America for $1.99.
The goal of Test Yourself is to provide users with an affordable, professional assessment of various aspects of their personalities and psychological abilities.
After the release of the initial pack, we received a ton of positive feedback about this game and we are very excited to release the next part of the Test Yourself experience. Users who complete all of the test blocks will receive a full psychological portrait and will better understand the complex characteristics of their states of mind.
The initial game Test Yourself: Psychology, which included test packs for Intelligence and Nervous System, was one of the top five downloaded games on PSN and is available for $2.99.
Test Yourself is a serious scientific product developed by a team of professional psychologists and counselors....

Even better, folks who catch up now with the Dual Pack will be able to show off their recent journey through the first two games with an exclusive Joseph Capelli in SRPA gear skin for Resistance 3 multiplayer.

103w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation DLC is coming to PS3 on June 10, 2011.
To quote: Hopefully everybody enjoyed the double XP period for Call of Duty: Black Ops in May - neither Treyarch nor Activision wanted to see any of the PS3 fans miss out just because of the technical issues.
Now the next round of Black Ops action is locked and loaded: the long-awaited Escalation DLC pack will be available in the PlayStation Store on Friday, June 10th.
Escalation features five big chunks of content - four multiplayer maps and one star-studded Zombies experience unlike any other. For fans of competitive combat, your new battlegrounds await:
• HOTEL takes the sunny splendor of a luxirous Cuban casino resort and turns it into a bullet-riddled war zone. Details like the blown casino safe and poolside bar offer some unusual cover for run-and-gunners, but thanks to the high vantage points at opposite ends, it's also a great map for snipers.
• Why not visit the ZOO? The big cats and deadly reptiles left this abandoned Russian animal park long ago, but the overgrown, dilapidated facility still plays host to the...
