Introducing Unbound Saga for Sony's PlayStation Portable

100°
287w ago - Today [Register or Login to view links]'s Senior Producer Mike Kennedy has introduced Unbound Saga for Sony's PSP console, as follows:

Unbound Saga is an old-school, arcade-style brawler that puts you in the shoes of Rick Ajax, a surly comic book tough guy trapped in a world of endless trouble.

The thing is, he knows he's a comic book character, and after 30 years of dealing with one ridiculous plotline after another, he's had about enough. So you get to take him on an epic adventure to escape the pages of the comic in search of The Maker, the mysterious entity responsible for his daily misadventure.

So why make it a brawler? Well, aside from the logical activity perpetuated by the lead character, we frankly couldn't get enough brawlers growing up in the 8-bit and 16-bit days, and there doesn't seem to be enough of 'em coming out any more these days. We were hooked on games like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, TMNT Arcade, X-men Arcade, Captain American and The Avengers, etc.

They were colorful, visceral, over-the-top, and tons of fun. The gameplay was easily accessible, with simple to understand controls – Punch, Kick, Grab, Throw – that could be strung together to pull off easy-to-execute combinations.

There were no blocks,...

Sony Announces Improvements for PlayStation Network Store

350°
289w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) have announced that they will be making many improvements to the PlayStation Network Store.

They stated they will be improving the digital quality of the games that are soon to be arriving on the store, to quote:

For the few years the store has been online, it has been in a huge competition with the 360's version of PSN, XBLA.

Items for the PSP like songs will be better quality when downloaded from your PC. The PSN Store sees games such as Fat Princess coming soon and with a huge range of PS one originals also on their way, Sony are putting their all into the PlayStation for the moment.

Despite having over 200 full games already on the network, Sony are planning to expand that to around 300 by the end of the year.

It is also rumored that Sony have secured exclusivity for DLC content for upcoming games. Xbox Live needs to watch their backs for the moment.

289w ago - Update: We experienced a minor glitch this morning with the Buzz space in PlayStation. We know what the issue is and we are working to resolve it as soon as possible. Please check back with the blog for an update on when it will go live.

Today PlayStation Home Community Manager CydoniaX has announced that Photo Sharing is coming to PlayStation Home, as follows:

Greetings, Homies. Fasten your seatbelts, because we have the most exciting news to hit PlayStation Home since Open Beta! We know you loyal Home fans have been asking for media sharing since the get-go, and we're very happy to tell you that the first stage is here!

Photo sharing, the first feature to support user-generated content, is finally coming to PlayStation Home! Starting today, Thursday, June 4th, you'll be able to purchase picture frames in the Mall, upload photos from your hard drive or select from a gallery of default pictures, and then display them in your personal apartments.

So if you've got photos from your latest game tournament that you want to share, all you have to do is upload them, choose the angle and size options for display, and then invite your friends back to your Home pad for your viewing party. Awesome!

But that's not all! As usual, we have more exciting content...
