187w ago - Disney Interactive Studios Senior Global Brand Manager Mitch Powers has announced that tomorrow the Split/Second PS3 demo crashes into PSN.
To quote: We're excited to announce that the Split/Second demo is coming to PSN for PlayStation 3 tomorrow!
To prepare you for the action you'll be experiencing, I wanted to provide you with a bit more information about the demo which takes place in our "Airport" location. After we had such a great response from fans who played this level at E3 2009 and both Penny Arcade Expo events in Seattle and Boston, we thought it would make a great demo to release to everyone in advance of the game.
In Split/Second, you build up your power meter through skilled driving techniques and then trigger what we call "Power Plays" to take out opponents and alter the track. All this takes place in the premise of a huge global broadcast event where you play as a contestant trying to win the season championship.
The airport track features some incredible moments that YOU can trigger - including a navigational radar dish that explodes off its base and a tram that slams into a parking structure creating some real shock waves on the track.
There are also some other really huge Power Plays you can activate like taking down the...

To quote: I'm back again to give you a quick rundown of our ModNation Racers PSP Demo, which will be available on May 11th to everyone through the PSP Store on the PlayStation Network!
We were so stoked about all the cool things everyone has been saying about the game that we decided to put this demo out for everyone to get a little hands-on experience before hitting the track on May 25th, when the full game will be available. In this demo we included a couple of our favorite tracks, some familiar Mods and their karts, and of course, a sneak peek of our amazing Track Studio.
To start you off we dropped in eight Elite and Pre-made Mods and their karts to light up a couple of new tracks, including Lost Temple and Flaming Jumps. Both tracks provide all the opportunities you need for Big Air, Long Smooth Drifts, and lots of weapons to keep the action hot!
Again, with all of your comments about our Track Studio, we had to give you a little taste of creative freedom in our Alpine theme.
With so many options for making each track unique and all your own, and so many track parts available we had to limit it in this specific...

To quote: I'm happy to let you know how we've been listening to you all. We've enjoyed the great reaction to Wakeboarding HD, but we understand how some folks like to try before they buy.

TikGames/Creat Studios is proud to offer a free-to-play demo version of Wakeboarding HD in North America and Europe on Thursday, April 29th.
