160w ago - SCEE Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has shared a video preview today of the Iron Man Flying Game which will be hitting PlayStation Home on Thursday.
To quote: On Thursday Paramount Pictures International and AUDI AG will be launching a brand new Iron Man mini-game located in the Audi Space. As the first in-world game ever made for a film in Home, this is definitely worth your time to visit!
You will have the chance to throw on the Iron Man suit and pilot your way through a tricky skyscraper obstacle course, picking up arc reactors and dodging the mines to power your way onto the leaderboard.
If you make the leaderboard, then do your best to stay on it; the Top 10 scorers (when the game closes at the end of June 2010) will be rewarded with an Iron Man suit to keep. Do you have the raw talent - or sheer dedication - to prove that you have what it takes to wear the Iron Man suit?
To wet your appetites, check out the video below:
Don't forget you can also grab a free Iron Man 2 t-shirt by completing the quiz available within the Audi Space. There are also plenty of clips, viral videos and trailers available to watch in the cinema.

168w ago - Today Folklore Associate Producer Eric Fong has announced that the new Patchwork Heroes PSP demo will arrive on PSN this Thursday, as follows:
In the last Patchwork Heroes blog post, Brian Chou introduced you to the world of Patchwork Heroes... and YES, it's a very unique game that's difficult to describe.
Coming from our very creative minds at PlayStation in Japan who brought you titles like LocoRoco, Patapon, and echochrome, this is another unique title unlike anything you've played before.
Thankfully you'll be able to discover the unique wit and charm of this game soon, because the demo will be available Tomorrow, right here on the Playstation Network.
For those of you that can't wait, or want to know more about the game before the demo hits, here's a short description to whet your appetite. You play as Titori, the squad leader of a rag-tag airborne demolition team tasked with defending your small town from an armada of flying battleships.
Out-manned, out-gunned, and OUT OF YOUR MIND, you must drop in on these mechanical behemoths and dismantle them piece by piece with nothing more than your hammer, saw, and keen insight on destruction. To make matters worse, these juggernauts are defended...
