Age of Booty to Plunder PlayStation Network Soon

50°
302w ago - Per John Diamonon (Capcom) via PS Blog:

I'm glad to be back here with the PlayStation Posse and talk about a game that I'm looking forward to - Age of Booty. No, it's not an online dating game.

It's a casual, pirate-themed, online strategy game from some of the makers of Halo.

Actually, I consider this more of a multiplayer party game because it's really easy to play and allows for a lot of smack talk. Yarrr!





Here are more details:

• Release date: Soon (I'll confirm when I get a solid date)
• Price: Only $9.99!
• Trophies: No comment at this time.
• Add on content: Lots of free map packs in the future plus some cool expansions.
• Players: Up to 8 players online - You can play a 4 player local match then take the team online!
• Demo:Available a couple weeks after launch with online multiplayer matches!

Max Hoberman, one of the founders of the company that developed the game, has been kind enough to write this message to you, the PlayStation fans, and answer some of your questions (This is his time, so I probably won't answer your Capcom related questions for a couple days). Anyway, heeeeeeere's Max!

Hi everyone. My name...

303w ago - The first add-on for Spore, called Spore Cute and Creepy Parts, has been spotted at online retailers. It carries with it a price of $19.99 and should go on sale from November 18th, 2008.

To quote: It looks like the first addon for Spore will arrive very soon indeed. Called the Spore Cute & Creepy Parts Pack has a retail price of $19.99 and will be available on the 18th of November.

Word of the expansion appeared on online game shops like Gamestop and Amazon. No box art is currently available.

Judging by the name, the expansion will offer little more than creature parts which is a meager addition for $19.99. We'll give EA the benefit of the doubt for now, and hope that the pack will offer much more than that.

Postcards from Leipzig: Killzone 2 Public BETA is coming soon

50°
310w ago - Eric Boltjes, the Senior Online Gameplay Designer for Killzone 2, has said that the Public BETA for the game is coming soon. Boltjes also said that they are listening to feedback from people who are testing out the online version of the game at Leipzig.

"We are still at a point in the project where we can change and tweak specific aspects of the game so getting this kind of feedback from our audience (even though they might be journalists ) is a tremendous help to getting this project done and out the door." said Boltjes.

Via PS Blog - Eric Boltjes, the senior online gameplay designer for Killzone 2:

Today was the first time ever that we showed the online version of the game, hands-on, to anyone outside of the SCEE family and I have to admit, it was quite nerve-wracking. We've worked on this online portion for over two years and putting your baby out there is not an easy thing. I am very happy to say though that today could not have gone better and we got some really good responses from all of the journalists we showed the game to.

There is something almost magic about seeing people playing the online game for the first time and more importantly, seeing them really get into it! Some of the journalists were so into the game that they almost forgot to ask questions for...
