331w ago - According to Zsolt Kigyossy (Managing Director, Zen Studios) there is a new Punisher game coming.

To quote: We here at Zen Studios are super excited to announce that we're bringing Marvel's storied franchise The Punisher to PLAYSTATION Network. Just a quick FYI - EVERYONE here at Zen Studios is a massive Marvel True Believer, so the entire team is on fire for this project.

We're calling the game The Punisher: No Mercy because that's exactly what it is - merciless. For the first time on consoles, you'll see the Marvel Universe through a first-person perspective in some intense arena-based multiplayer action.

Also, the game is being built from the ground up with some serious tech - yes, we are using the Unreal Engine 3 (the ultimate FPS engine) for this exclusive PSN release. Our main focus is to create an awesome online multiplayer experience with the style and grit from the Punisher's world, complete with characters like Jigsaw, Bushwacker, Barracuda and even Silver Sable (been reading War Journal lately?...).

What does this mean for you gamers? You better get ready to kick some serious #$% with the first ever first-person shooter developed exclusively for PSN. Stay tuned for more details as they become available at www.punishernomercy.com. Because of...

JEOPARDY! coming to PSN Tomorrow, won't Feature Trophies

333w ago - Per Shalom Mann (Senior Vice President of Development, SOE LA):

For 2008, we've been hard at work on a few games for the PLAYSTATION Network. Today, we are happy to announce that our first game, JEOPARDY! will be released for the PSN on Thursday, September 11, 2008.

JEOPARDY!, as you may know, is one of the most popular game shows on television and is celebrating its 25th anniversary this season. During my time here at SONY, I have had the good fortune to work on several games based on JEOPARDY!, including multiple versions for PCs and mobile phones, as well as skill-based and ITV versions. The PSN version, however, is easily the best looking and marks the first time we have been able to include real-time multiplayer capabilities.





While having multiplayer games was one of the key features we wanted to include, we also needed the game to look like the TV show. Everyone on our team worked on dual monitors, and it was common to see the TV show running on one monitor with the game engine or Maya on the other. Below are a couple of screen shots for comparison.

Some features of the game include:

- More than 2,500 clues and categories randomized for multiplayer games.
- Single-player games versus AI with three levels...
