110w ago - Creat Studios Technical Director Jason Benham has made available a Pinballistik video trailer spotlighting how players can build a Battle Pinball Arcade beginning today on PSN.
To quote: Creat Studios is proud to present Pinballistik, our latest PSN-exclusive game.
Pinballistik is unlike any other pinball game you've ever played - it has the first two-player Battle mode where you can face off against your friends and play on either side of the table!
In another first, you can play against AI players with varying degrees of difficulty. In a nod to the purists, we also offer challenging and full-featured single player Classic tables for each of our themed table packs.
When we tell people Pinballistik is only $3.99 for the first two Wild West-themed tables, they often ask: Is this only a mini? Does it have Trophies? Well, I can tell you that this is no mini and it has a ton of Trophies! In fact, the 'a la carte' approach we've taken has allowed us to provide 29 trophies with a total of 525 points - all for less than the price of a standard PSN title!
Pinballistik offers a ton of game configuration options. In Battle mode, either play to reach a certain point threshold or get the highest score in a time limit. You can configure penalties that are applied when...
110w ago - Sony PlayStation Home Director Jack Buser has unveiled a PlayStation Home redesign tour trailer today, which spotlights new content including games, genre-based districts and more below.
To quote: As you might recall from my previous post, I revealed the big plans we had in store for a complete redesign of PlayStation Home- including a brand new Hub, genre-based districts, Total Game Integration, and a new questing system that turns Home itself into a game.

As you can see, PlayStation Home's new genre-based districts include a number of diverse and exclusive games that cater to players' different interests and styles.

110w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has posted up a video today spotlighting Corpse Party and the Psychology of Horror on Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We love to be scared. There's something so primal and universal about fear, and a good horror story can really bring out the best of it, making our hearts race and our minds veer toward the darkest recesses of the human psyche. And we just keep going back for more!
Yet by the same token, horror has become so passe that we barely even react when we encounter imagery of skeletons, zombies, witches, bats, vampires and ghouls. True primal fear is hard to come by in the modern world, and this applies to video games as well.
When you hear the term "horror game," what's the first thing that pops into your mind? Probably "zombies" since that seems to characterize much of the horror genre nowadays.
Most modern horror games assault you with wave after wave of zombies, and you can typically one-shot them back to their graves. They may look scary, but when's the last time you were actually frightened in a zombie shooter game?
Maybe you had an exciting time playing one, and jumped at a handful of startling moments, but the mere fact that you're able to defend yourself - that you have a means of fighting...
