109w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has shared a video today announcing that their smooth and silky shooter GaiaSeed hits PSN Imports today.
To quote: Japanese retro lovers have a special attachment to the shooting genre. Remember the days when shooters ruled the skies?
So many great games came from that era but not all were shared with the West. Here's one you might enjoy.
GaiaSeed is for the pure shooter enthusiast. When you get your hands on this one, you'll be taken back to that era. Supremely smooth with a silky techo backbeat, GaiaSeed is one of those lost gems that should have become a classic. The game is guaranteed to satisfy, again and again.
This horizontal scrolling shooter from Techno Soleil has solid control, precise bullet collision, and a simple power-up system. With six stages, it's not the longest game on the block, but the massively scaling 2D backgrounds and variable difficulty make up for that.
But the real beauty of GaiaSeed lies in its subtlety. The technique and effects used will give shooter aficionados a work of art to go back to for multiple exposure. The soundtrack stands out for its techno/ambiance mood and adds to the subliminal nature of...

116w ago - A year back we reported news of launching PSP games on a PS3 from Russian hacker GamerSuper, and today PlayStation 3 hacker Snowydew of Gitbrew confirms that PSP games are indeed mountable on PS3 but notes that only some are actually playable.
Below are some relevant Tweets from him on mounting Loco Roco (pictured below) for PSP on the PS3, and as always we will update this article as more details surface:
Yes psp games ARE mountable, but some are not playable. I'll try lumines to see if it works though.
rar the directories if you can and send it to "snowy" on the gitbrew irc, when i wake up i'll have a look
Games to be run on it. Time to look towards the psone classics then, that or lets see if i can mount actual psone games. This shall be fun
The loco roco i used was from a umd, not psn related. From the documentation i've been reading, it would require heavy modification for psp
I need the psn versions sadly , already installed is what i need / specific files that are in the directory.
The reason i say that, is because i own these copies. Hardcopies / psone discs and psn /ps3 installed...
118w ago - Recently freelance developer Yifan Lu has released PSXperia, a PC App that converts any PSX game to work on Xperia Play - the PlayStation Certified Sony Ericsson Android mobile smartphone for gamers.
To quote: After two hard weeks of decompiling, reverse engineering, graphing, and coding, I'm proud to announce PSXperia, a set of tools to extract, patch, and repack the Crash Bandicoot game that comes with all Xperia Play phones to use any PSX game (that you legally own).
In addition to allowing you to play any property ripped PSX game, you can also set a custom icon and the game will show up in the phone's Playstation Pocket app, so you can quickly access it when you flip the gamepad out.
I've converted and tested 8 games with this tool and they all run flawlessly, but if things don't work out so smoothly for you, submit your issues to GitHub.
