Car Mini-Album & Creator Pack ($1.99)

Put on your driving gloves, there's a new vehicle in Sound Shapes and it changes everything! Speed, flip, loop, and jump your way through the levels and experience Sound Shapes like never before. We set out to make a platformer and created a trials game by accident. Yeah!

This pack includes new Campaign levels, a full Sound Pack, brand new editor entities (like loop-de-loops, speed boosts, and more), Beat School lessons, and trophies too.

The Community Milkcrate & Six New Albums (free update)

Sony Adds More Titles to PlayStation Store Retro Games PSN Sale

50°
83w ago - Sony's Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team has announced the addition of more titles to their PS Store Retro Games PSN sale today!

To quote: Hello everybody. I hope you are all enjoying our current Retro Sale.

Just a quick update - I have been listening to all your comments and have got some more deals for you! See below for the full list of additions.

Now you will notice that Resident Evil 2 is on the list but be warned, this DOES NOT currently work on the PS Vita. We are aware of the issue and are trying to fix it - hopefully it will work on the PS Vita soon but I don't have an ETA yet.

Once the game has been fixed you will be able to re-download the game for PS Vita, but for now you can only purchase it through your PS3. Sorry to disappoint with this but I will see if we can replicate the offer once it is working for PS Vita - though I can't make any promises.

I recommend buying it now on the PS3 (if you have one) for the future to avoid disappoint on missing this sale opportunity.

These discounts will start on Wednesday 12th September once the weekly store update has happened. All offers will end on 19th September....

Whether you're a hardcore beta tester or just casually interested in the game, next week's update marks another significant milestone as the game moves towards Open Beta.

The first live DUST 514 / EVE Online integration
Linking the intense front-line combat of DUST 514 with the galactic ship warfare of EVE Online has always been our keystone to building a vibrant community, and now that keystone is coming into place.

With the Precursor release, we move DUST 514 from its standalone testing server over to the long-standing EVE Online test server, Singularity (aka "Sisi"). This means DUST 514 on PlayStation 3 and EVE Online on PC/Mac will be officially running on the same server.
