110w ago - Square Enix Product Manager Charles McCarter has announced news today of their upcoming Winter of RPGs Campaign on PlayStation Network, which includes popular titles Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy V, and Final Fantasy VI.
To quote: I'm here to announce Square Enix's "Winter of RPGs" campaign.
In some parts of North America, winter seems to have gotten an early head start. And while that brings a lot of headaches for those who have to contend with ice and snow, it's also a perfect time for us to announce our latest group of titles coming to PSN.
So, while you're staying inside and out of the cold, icky weather, why not fire up your PS3 and play some classic RPGs? We've got some great games lined up to get you through the cold days ahead.
So what's up first? Some of you may have noticed my responses to reader comments in my last column. And even last week, readers of "The Drop" were asking when we'd see this particular title arrive.
Well, get ready to travel not through time, but through alternate realities when Chrono Cross releases. Join Serge as he finds himself in a world where he died as a young child, meets the enigmatic thief Kid, and goes on a quest for the artifact known as the Frozen Flame!
The sequel to Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross delivers...
134w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman shared a PS3 Multiplayer report today alongside a fresh Resistance 3: Campaign Tour video available below.
To quote: Earth's cities lie silent. Mankind teeters on the brink of extinction. The Chimera have won. Six years after the Chimera invaded in Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 3 depicts a bleak world where the survivors have laid down their weapons and curled into seclusion to await the inevitable.
One such survivor is Joseph Capelli, last seen (spoiler!) executing series frontman Nathan Hale at the conclusion of Resistance 2. With Resistance 3's narrative focus shifting from military might to hometown heroism, the gaunt-looking Capelli stands in stark contrast to Resistance 2's square-jawed super soldier.
Having abandoned the fight to be with his wife and child, Capelli holes up in rural Oklahoma to evade Chimeran raiders and scavenge for ever-dwindling supplies.
A chance visit by xenobiologist Dr. Fyodor Malikov reveals a desperate plan to destroy the Chimera in New York City, sparking a road trip through an American heartland warped by the Chimera's corrosive influence.
152w ago - Today Sony's VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has shared two new PlayStation 3: It Only Does Endless Fun videos featuring Kevin Butler.
To quote: I'm joining you today to give the community the first look at something many of you have been asking for - Kevin Butler offering his unique twist on LittleBigPlanet 2.
In this latest ad Kevin joins us as the VP of Infinite Infinity, referring of course to the endless possibilities that arise when you combine LittleBigPlanet 2's new features and functionality with access to the over 3.2 million existing online levels created with the original LittleBigPlanet.
This spot is one of my personal favorites to date.
In the coming weeks you'll be seeing a lot of LittleBigPlanet 2, starting today with this Kevin Butler ad as well as the video above which features some of the great levels created during the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta. Both will be rotating on some of your favorite networks including ESPN, G4, Comedy Central, and more.
176w ago - Today Klei Co-Founder Jamie Cheng has detailed the challenges of Skank's PSN co-op campaign as part of an EA video interview.
To quote: I'd like to share our journey leading up to our decision to include a co-op campaign in our new title, Shank - and why we felt so strong about creating it as a separate mode altogether.
When Shank was shown at PAX 2009, there were two questions that I couldn't answer which came up over and over again. The first was, "What platform is it coming out on?" The second "is there going to be co-op?"
I answered the first question, with my own question. I stuffed our dev kit into a ghetto cardboard box, labeled with a large question-mark and strung a handful of controllers (including Atari and Dreamcast ones) from underneath it for added effect.
At the time, nobody had played Shank, and I didn't have platform approval yet. Thankfully, the gaming community and our fans spoke up, and I got my wish – we were able to negotiate a deal to bring the game to the PlayStation Network.
The second, co-op question - proved to be much trickier.
On one hand, we felt strongly about the classic, couch-play...
208w ago - SCEA Producer Daimion Pinnock has revealed that Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign is hitting PSP this month, and shared a video as follows:
I'm pleased to say that Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign will be released via PSN on December 22nd. For more info, here's my colleagues at Fluffy Logic:
Hello - I'm Ana, the producer of Savage Moon here at Fluffy Logic in Bristol, UK.
We're really excited by the PSP version of the game and myself and the rest of the development team has spent the last few months pouring our energy into the game and we're very pleased with the result - and we hope you will be too!
If you haven't played Savage Moon before; it's a real-time, tower defense game pitting you (the humans) against hordes of chitinous, carnivorous, bug-like creatures called Insectocytes who are the immune system of living planets (called Imoons) the humans are trying to mine.
The Hera campaign is the third project we've done - following on from the PS3 release and the Waldgeist expansion pack...
