Video: Closure at Fantastic Fest 2011: New Visuals for PSN Launch

100°
169w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared some new video footage today from Fantastic Fest 2011 showcasing Closure's new challenges and visuals for its PSN launch below.

To quote: "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" The world of Closure, an upcoming PSN exclusive, pushes this philosophical question to the limit. If you don't see that tree, not only doesn't it make a sound - it doesn't even exist.

As Austin's Fantastic Fest kicked off last night, PlayStation hosted an indie arcade filled with games coming exclusively to PSN. You might be familiar with most of the titles on display, as we've talked quite a bit on the Blog about Journey, Retro/Grade, and Okabu. As the developers were setting up their stations, I was immediately drawn to a title that we only just introduced you to: Closure.

[Register or Login to view links] is being developed by just two full-timers: Lead Designer and Programmer Tyler Glaiel and Artist John Schubbe. Glaiel guided me through the early parts of the game, and answered a few questions for PlayStation.Blog readers.





PlayStation.Blog: After announcing the game here on the PlayStation Blog, you demoed the game at PAX....

Sony Confirms AT&T Mobility Ruling Spurred New PSN TOS Change

800°
170w ago - Last week we reported that the PSN Terms were updated followed by how to Opt-Out of the new Class Action waiver, and today Sony confirms to CNN (linked above) that the [Register or Login to view links] ([Register or Login to view links]) US Supreme Court ruling earlier this year spurred the recent PlayStation Network TOS change.

To quote: "Sony said this week that the new terms-of-service changes were made, as some analysts suspected, in response to a Supreme Court decision in April. In that case, AT&T Mobility was permitted to include and enforce a clause in employment contracts that bars workers from bringing class-action suits.

"The Supreme Court recently ruled in the AT&T case that language like this is enforceable," a spokeswoman for Sony's PlayStation unit wrote in an e-mail.

"The updated language in the TOS is designed to benefit both the consumer and the company by ensuring that there is adequate time and procedures to resolve disputes."

Like AT&T, Sony prefers...

VooFoo Studios Shares The Latest News on Hustle Kings for PSN

50°
170w ago - VooFoo Studios Art Director John Kearney has shared the latest news today on Hustle Kings for PlayStation Network.

To quote: Just over 18 months ago, Hustle Kings was released on PSN. Since launch, 1.4 million online games have been played with over 14.8 million very shiny balls potted (imagine those numbers if we could include offline games)!

During that time, we have been busy developing Hustle Kings for PlayStation Vita, in addition to providing regular updates and DLC for the PS3 version.

A thriving community helped guide our direction and allowed us to make significant improvements. We created the hugely popular snooker add-on, free crazy tables, new trick shots, ball-sets, cues and avatars. We also provided support for Move and stereoscopic 3D.

As a massive fan of late night games, it's a privilege for me to confirm the inclusion of Hustle Kings in the upcoming PS3 title 'After Hours Athletes'. Created in association with PUMA Social, we recognise that the After Hours Athletes fuel themselves on late night falafel rather than energy drinks and half time oranges.

If that isn't enough to satisfy your hustle needs, you'll be pleased to know that Hustle Kings will be available for Vita at launch. Visually, it's virtually identical to the PS3 version...
