108w ago - Playerthree Ltd Senior Producer Luigi Fumero has announced today alongside a video trailer that Rumble Trucks for PlayStation Minis is rolling onto PSN.
To quote: We are delighted to announce that our new minis title, Rumble Trucks, is released today.
Our previous minis title was the 2D sidescrolling shoot'em up - Apache Overkill, but with Rumble Trucks we decided to do something completely different, a 3D stunt racing game.
Rumble Trucks is not your classic racing game. Playing it feels like a rollercoaster ride: high speed, steep hills, huge jumps.
Big jumps allow for big tricks, perform them and you'll gain a speed boost, use it wisely and reach the end of level as fast as possible to win a medal. On the way to the finish line don't forget to collect the stars scattered around the levels as they give you a time bonus.
You'll be able to choose between nine vehicles with different stats and then race on one of the twenty four levels divided in three worlds. Obviously you will need to unlock the trucks and the levels before being able to play on them.
Reaching the final level in each world unlocks the next world, but those...
108w ago - Today Sony Computer Entertainment of Korea (SCEK) has announced that PSN will be shutdown overnights for underage Korean gamers in an effort to comply South Korea's Shutdown Law and prevent players under sixteen from gaming during the six hour block.
To quote from Kotaku (linked above): "The law is designed to limit Korean youth's late night gaming as well as online game addiction. It also aims to ensure Korean youth get six hours of sleep each night, with online gaming banned between midnight and 6am.
Starting Nov. 18, Sony will not allow players under the age of sixteen to make new PSN accounts in South Korea as well as prevent them from logging onto the PSN.
Both Sony and Microsoft are saying it is difficult to develop and implement shutdown systems for under-sixteen players in such a short window of time. Sony cannot say when it will have a system up and running, and it will announce how it will handle the PS Vita at a later date.
The Sony shutdown system would allow under 16-year-old players to log in during the day, but prevent them from playing between midnight and 6am. It would also prevent them from making new accounts, meaning that Sony of Korea would probably be monitoring the accounts by IP addresses.
