162w ago - Last week we reported on the MAG Escalation expansion patch heading to PlayStation 3, and now Jeremy Dunham has confirmed that the add-on pack and PS3 patch v2.02a will arrive today- November 4, 2010.
To quote: Our MAG "Escalation" add-on pack has seen a short delay from its original release date of November 2. The good news is that the postponement is a short one and that our new DLC will be available starting tomorrow, November 4.
As a thank you to our loyal fans, we've activated a "Double XP" bonus of +100% to MAG as a whole, which stacks with other in-game bonuses for quite an XP haul (note: the "Directives" queue will not award extra XP during this period).
As of yesterday, we've also kept our originally-planned price drop for the first MAG add-on pack, "Interdiction," to $4.99 (US).
In addition, as some of you may have already discovered through PSN promotional materials, we're also offering a special discount of $7.99 (US) on the "Escalation" DLC pack!
This promotion will be offered to anyone who previously purchased Interdiction at its original price prior to 12am Pacific Time, October 28, 2010*. The discounted price for...
184w ago - Vice President of Development for Creat Studios Scott Hyman has confirmed today that the Smash Cars: Virus Run add-on DLC pack for PS3 is incoming- arriving to PSN in North America for $2.99 on June 8, 2010.
To quote: Surely you already know about Smash Cars, our tricked-out RC car racing game, right? Right?
Our new DLC tosses in some great new features to enhance that fast-paced experience.
The new Smash Cars: Virus Run features an all-new online racing mode for up to six players to battle to the finish line. But this time, one randomly selected player quickly becomes the group's foe!
The "infected" car rushes the racetrack with the ability to contaminate other players. When the infected player hits an opponent's car, the victim joins the effort.
And, just to make things even more interesting, we tossed in a new Skate Park at the center of the island, complete with half-pipes and springboards to perfect your trick and stunt skills during the Virus Run mode.
Adding to the tears of joy (or fear) we know you're all shedding, TikGames-Creat Studios is thrilled to show how we've been listening to all of you that have sent countless emails, blog responses, bulletin-board posts and screams from rooftops.
186w ago - Today Gamasutra.com (linked above) have posted an extensive interview with Sony Computer Entertainment of America's Rob Dyer, who stated that SCEA is working on implementing code to make new PSP games unhackable for up to 60 days from release.
To quote: "A lot of the stuff that will be announced at E3 we're very excited about, because they are huge titles. And we also believe that there's a way that you will be able to, not stop, but slow down the piracy in the first 30 to 60 days from a tech perspective.
There's some code that you can embed that we've been helping developers implement in order to get people at least to see a 60-day shelf life before it gets hacked and it shows up on BitTorrent.
That's been the biggest problem, no question about it. It's become a very difficult proposition to be profitable, given the piracy right now. And the fact that the category shrunk inside of retail."
191w ago - Creat Studios Director of Business Development Scott Hyman has unveiled a new Jungle add-on pack for Magic Orbz today, which is scheduled to hit PSN later this week.
