259w ago - Several unannounced SEGA-made games recently popped up on the Entertainment Software Rating Board's (ESRB) Web site.
Apparently the publisher is using the Wii's Virtual Console as a sort of test bed as the listed titles have already released on Nintendo's System (not to mention the fact that they're also classic games).
Now coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network are Gunstar Heroes, Phantasy Star II, Comix Zone and Sonic The Hedgehog 3.
There's no indication of a release date for any of the titles, but as soon as we get wind of one, we'll let you know.
268w ago - PomPom Games has revealed a PSN shoot-em-up called Astro Tripper. Once again, this is a retro-styled arcade game in the style of other horizontal side-scrolling shooters.
According to the official site, the game will promise "UFOS. Fat Motherships. Tanks. Choppers. Slimy Slug creatures. Alien Insects. Aztec structures brimming with electricity. And of course, Big Bosses!"
This PSN release is scheduled to release "soon", and will feature 1080p graphics, online leaderboards, and Trophy support.
From their site: Astro Tripper is a furious shoot-em-up experience inspired by the painful, knuckle busting experiences of years gone by. An evolution of PomPom's 2001 award winning game, Space Tripper.
Travel the surface of large horizontally-scrolling platforms, and pit your highly maneuverable craft against hoards of enemies eager to blow you to bits, eat you or worse.
Gameplay is simple. You are free to travel anywhere on the platform at anytime, but don't fall off! Powerful Blue Lasers and Red Spread Lasers come equipped, so use both weapons tactically to get through tricky situations. Power up your weapons with power crystals dropped by destroyed enemies. Oh, did we mention the blasting absolutely anything that moves?
284w ago - This is clearly an unsubstantiated rumor, so take it with a fine grain of salt. According to poster NiTiZ on the N4G Forum (linked above), who claims to have a friend in the know at Sony London, downloadable PS2 titles are coming to the PlayStation 3 this summer.
Normally, we'd brush off rumors like this one, but this same poster also provided an off-screen capture of the PS2 download store in action, as shown below. Needless to say, it looks very legit.
Apparently, Sony will formally announce the store during this year's E3, with a launch following in summer. Plus, this isn't the first time we've caught wind of rumblings regarding downloadable PS2 games.
This rumor may be unsubstantiated, but it's far from unlikely.
