16w ago - Housemarque's Mikael Haveri has officially introduced Resogun today at Gamescom 2013, the new PS4 / PlayStation 4 exclusive game!
To quote: Hiya. We are a team of game developers from a company called Housemarque, based in Helsinki, Finland.
You might have heard of us before, especially if you're a PlayStation enthusiast: do Dead Nation, Super Stardust HD or Super Stardust Delta ring any bells?
Our first PlayStation 4 title has been in development for a while now, and getting ready for the next gen debut has been an exciting ride.
Working on the Stardust franchise over the years has been both a challenge and a privilege, but if anything it deepened our love for shoot 'em ups. Gameplay-centric games have a really special place in our hearts, and we try to keep our core audience in mind with each and every new title.
RESOGUN, our new exclusive PS4 game, adds a twist to the shooter genre, and while being very much a "spiritual successor" to the Stardust series, it doesn't shy away from remixing ideas and influences of classic arcade titles such as Defender, Data Storm, or Japanese shmups like DoDonPachi and Death Smiles.
RESOGUN is an intense, fast-pace shooter that expands our love for the genre and represents a sort of culmination of all...
18w ago - Namco Bandai Games Public Relations Specialist Nick O'Leary announced that Tales of Xillia is out today and exclusive to the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: I have great news to tell you all: Tales of Xillia is now available exclusively for PS3 in North America, both at retail and digitally on PlayStation Store.
Do you like adventure, over-worlds, mana, warring nations, great spirits, lesser spirits, upgradable shops, real-time battles, lovable characters, and huge bosses?
Tales of Xillia has all those things, and more! Do you start to involuntarily shake with giddiness at the mere mention of a wyvern? Buddy, you better sit down, because we've got MULTIPLE WYVERNS!
Not only that, but Tales of Xillia also has two main protagonists. On one side we have Jude Mathis, a bright medical student attending the university in the capital city of Fennmont.
On the other side you have Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman who travels with four spirits and will stop at nothing to accomplish her mission. You get to choose whose side of the story you want to see, complete with unique cutscenes and events complementing each campaign.
Fortunately, both heroes give you access to the thrilling...
25w ago - Devolver Digital's Nigel Lowrie announced today that Hotline Miami is hitting both PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday with a PS-exclusive mask!
To quote: Let's get to the news you've all been waiting for first - Hotline Miami will launch for $9.99 on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on June 25th!
The teams at Dennaton Games, Abstraction Games, and Devolver Digital have worked incredibly hard to reproduce the fast-paced gameplay and super tight controls of the original game, and we couldn't be happier with how Hotline Miami plays on PS3 and PS Vita.
The PlayStation versions of Hotline Miami will also have an exclusive new mask designed by Abstraction and Dennaton Games. After months of top secret bovine research, we finally get to unveil our new friend: Russell the raging bull.
Russell is hidden early in the game, and when equipped will turn the entire game black and white save the neon text and red blood left behind as you rampage through each floor of every level. It's a really neat effect, and even changes up the video filter a bit to give the whole game a classic film look.
There are also a bunch of new upgrades, like leaderboards for each level of the game, Trophies, and even touch support for lock-on targeting in the PS Vita version. Plus, Hotline Miami is a Cross-Buy...
