To quote: Beginning with today's PlayStation Store Update, the Lost Planet 2 Multiplayer Demo will be available on PSN. Get together with up to 16 players, grab some weapons, jump in a vital suit and compete in Elimination, Team Elimination, or Data post Grab modes.

192w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a PlayStation Eye Chat video today showcasing Shatter PS3 multiplayer.
To quote: Shatter is easily one of my favorite PSN games from last year. So when we heard rumblings of multiplayer and other modes/features coming to the game, we went to go straight to the source for all the details.
So I'd like to welcome back Mario Wynands, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Sidhe, whom you originally met here. If you still haven't downloaded Shatter on PSN/PS3, you'll get a nice intro to the game in this video.
But beyond that, Mario talks about some in-the-works stuff including Home integration, the inclusion of multiplayer modes and even the release of the game's soundtrack.
And if you make it to the end of the video, you'll get a close-up of the physical CD version of the soundtrack, which you can snag by paying close attention to our Twitter feed today.
