90w ago - Boolat Games CEO Alexander Chigorin has confirmed today that 4 Elements HD will be hitting PSN Tuesday complete with PlayStation Move support and has shared a video trailer below.
To quote: I'm happy to share that Boolat Games has partnered with Playrix Entertainment to bring 4 Elements HD - packed with of PS3-exclusive content - to the PlayStation Store on August 30th.
Exciting news! The story takes place in a vast and ancient kingdom where evil forces have corrupted the balance between the four elements causing the altar of life to run dry. You have to unlock four ancient books of magic, collect 16 mysterious cards and restore this kingdom to life.
Here are few things you'll appreciate about 4 Elements HD. Imagine the addictive Matching gameplay where you freely draw the chains of same-colored pieces instead of just moving one piece next to another.
It feels and plays like an arcade game and it works great on PS3! We've added explosive bonuses, spectacular visual effects in full HD resolution, and intuitive controls using DualShock 3 or PlayStation Move.
Probably some of you saw or even tried the original game, but 4 Elements HD is...
90w ago - PlayStation Network Community Manager Morgan Haro has made available a video today spotlighting the PSN games that will be featured at this year's PAX convention.
To quote: With PAX Prime 2011 kicking off tomorrow in Seattle, attendees will get to try out a slew of new and unreleased games.
If you're heading to PAX, keep your eyes open for opportunities to play upcoming PlayStation Network titles, some of which won't be released for months!
A selection of PlayStation Network PLAY titles will be playable at PAX including Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition, located at Capcom's spot at booth #3425. BloodRayne: Betrayal (releasing on PSN September 6th) shows off its gorgeously bloody 2D styling courtesy of Way Forward at booth #3652.
The same action-packed engine and dev team that made Just Cause famous is also in fine form with Renegade Ops - it's playable at the Sega booth (#3625) before its PSN release on September 13th.

90w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a video and Q&A on Colonial Marines for the PS3 today, as follows:
I checked out Aliens: Colonial Marines when I popped over to the SEGA gamescom booth to say hi to a friend and, within minutes, it became one my highlights of the show.
I'm not as familiar with the Aliens films as many - I remember seeing one of them on TV as a child and not sleeping well for a few days - but judging it purely as a shooter, it is looking very impressive.
The level shown was a beautifully lit labyrinth of corridors on-board a craft sent to investigate LV-426, 11 months after Ripley escaped in Aliens.
The most memorable aspect for me was the animation of the Xenomorphs and my skin is crawling as I type just thinking about them. This added to the level design, which always leaves you feeling exposed as creatures pour from every angle and air vent, produces an unnerving shooter that piles on the tension.
After the demo, I spoke with Gearbox Chief Creative Officer Brian Martel about working with such an iconic IP and why his team is best suited to bringing the essence of the Aliens films to the interactive space.
90w ago - Eyebrow Interactive Lead Designer & Programmer Tyler Glaiel has shared a Closure video trailer today, confirming that it will hit PSN next Spring and be playable at PAX 2011 for fans.
To quote: We are very proud to announce that our game Closure will be coming to the the PlayStation Network next spring!
For those who haven't been following our development these past few years, Closure is a unique and stylistic puzzle platformer that takes the concept of light and shadow and twists it up into something never before seen.
You see, in Closure's dark and foreboding universe, the only things that exist are what you can see. An object properly lit up is physically there, yet an object shrouded in darkness ceases to be.
Your character can take advantage of this by manipulating lights to effectively change the shape of the world you're in. Wanna jump through a wall? Well you can, as long as it's in darkness.
Some of you might be wondering, "Wait, haven't I played this game before?" You may have. Closure began life as a small and simple web game posted online at the end of 2009.
The game was successful enough that we decided to take the unique concept of...
