114w ago - Today Lead Designer Kerim Borchaev has announced alongside a video trailer that Wheels of Destruction is coming to PlayStation Network.

To quote: Few things are as universal as the lust to drive fast and destroy expensive machinery. Everyone likes driving and crushing things, so when given the green light, Gelid Games leaped at the creation of Wheels of Destruction.

A lot of inspiring games came to mind, and we wanted to make our mark on the industry with an interpretation that is near and dear to us.

Before we got anywhere, we had to pick a platform, and going PSN exclusive was an obvious choice for us. Sony's platform has become much easier to develop on, and the fact that we're able to self-publish goes a long way in retaining our mindshare over the game. We wanted to know that every bit of perfection and every flaw was of our own design.

Once we had our platform in mind, we began searching for an engine. After trying as many that came through our doors, we found our place with the Unreal Engine, thanks to its great graphics and smooth asset production pipeline. We wanted to make the most out of the tools we had at our disposal.

Our ideas were grand, with levels five times larger than what production suggested we'd be able to accomplish. We knew that a fine...

114w ago - Creative Director Jenova Chen at ThatGameCompany has announced today that Journey will be taking its first steps on PSN this coming March.

To quote: As you may know from my recent tweet, the development of our latest PlayStation Network game, Journey, is finally complete. And today, we're very excited to announce the official release date for Journey.

You will be able to download it from the PlayStation Store for $14.99 starting March 13th, 2012. Three years ago, our last game, Flower, was part of the Spring Fever event on PSN, and this year Journey will kick off this year's Spring Fever.

Look for more information on the highlight games and sales of this year's Spring Fever event on the PlayStation.Blog in the coming weeks.

With each game we create, we want to bring something truly unique and authentic to the user. We want our players to experience something they have never felt before. Our first game for PSN was flOw in 2007, a meditative zen video game haiku.

We followed that in 2009 with Flower, our video game version of a poem about the tension between urban bustle and natural serenity. Journey, our third game, is an interactive parable, an anonymous online adventure to experience a person's life passage and their intersections with other's.

114w ago - Sony Assistant Producer Shaun Wharton has announced today that Start The Party! Save the World will officially be hitting PSN on March 6, 2012.

To quote: On March 6, we're bringing PlayStation Move's fun-filled Start The Party! franchise back for a brand new adventure with a heroic twist in Start The Party! Save the World.

Available exclusively for PlayStation 3, this PSN downloadable title uses PlayStation Move and the latest augmented reality technology to turn you and up to three of your friends and family members into super heroes for the ultimate party experience.

It's up to you to save the world by thwarting the unbearable Dr. Terrible and his evil schemes while competing in 20 madcap mini-games. Using the PlayStation Eye camera, you can snap a photo to put your face in the center of the action and then use your PlayStation Move motion controller to save stranded divers, defuse bombs before they explode, splat mutant piranhas, battle dangerous dinosaurs and zap abominable alien invaders!

It's easy to keep the party going - just pass your Move controller to your friends to let them join the fun or have them simultaneously jump into gameplay using a DualShock controller to either help or hinder the exciting on-screen action!

Check out Start The Party!...

114w ago - Today Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team has posted up the European PSN Game Store Updates below, as follows:

Greetings humble gamers. I come forth with a new update of the PlayStation Store.

After a bit of a wait we now have Worms Ultimate Mayhem ready and waiting to claim your precious hard drive space. Grand Theft Auto IV arrives to the PS Store as a vanilla flavour or as a bundle option complete with DLC, and House of the Dead III also shows its beautifully scary side for you to unload your rounds on.

The big demo this week is Mass Effect 3. Fire the first shots in the war to take Earth back! Voted Most Anticipated Game of 2012 at the SpikeTV VGAs, Mass Effect 3 puts you at the centre of an all-out galactic war - and how to wage that war is up to you. Try the demo today.

Binary Domain also pops in for a visit, also having a demo on the store today. From the team that brought you Yakuza comes Binary Domain, a game set in a futuristic Tokyo where man and machine are waging war. A bit like Terminator only in Tokyo, then. But nay! It's the gameplay system that should be of interest. Direct your team with instructions either by button commands or your very own voice - do they trust you or are you just a reckless muppet in the middle of a warzone?

Hey everyone, It's a special PS Vita early launch week / Valentine's Day edition of the PlayStation Store Update!

Lastly Hustle Kings lets you make your way to the top of the global leader boards in this beautifully chic pool setting. Access the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita to download the new PS Vita content.
