166w ago - Today Game Director Luca Ferrara at Milestone SRL has announced that Superstars V8 Racing is coming to PSN on October 26 alongside giveaway details, as follows:
Not long ago, our friends at O-Games announced here on the blog that Superstars V8 Racing would be launching in North America exclusively on PlayStation Network as a download with all of the trimmings of a retail game for only $19.99.
Today we're here to let you know that the date is officially set for October 26th - and we'd love to tell you more about our studio and the work we put into the project since its inception.
My name is Luca Ferrara, and I'm the Game Director on Superstars V8 Racing. As a developer, Milestone has been working in the racing genre for many, many years. Driving is our passion, and bringing our passion into the world of video games is our specialty.
Some of you might know us from other franchises on two wheels like Moto GP 07 and the SBK Superbike World Championship series. Others might recognize us from our days working on games like the Screamer series and Evolution GT.
While a large portion of our fans reside in Europe, we rarely get an opportunity to reach out to our fans in the US - so I'm happy to be here to tell...

168w ago - Today Krome Studios Creative Director Steve Stamatiadis has detailed some Blade Kitten PS3 updates, including his inspirations for the game.
To quote: Blade Kitten is a fantastic new side-scrolling action game for the PS3. No, seriously, it IS awesome.
I know because it's a story I've wanted to tell in game form for a great many years. So come with me and I'll give you a little behind the scenes insight as to where this game comes from.
First up, Blade Kitten is the adventures of bounty hunter Kit Ballard, a pink haired catgirl (or Felion as they're known in the universe).
She travels around with her sidekick, Skiffy a feisty alien critter that is her companion and protector, and also her floating A.I. sword known as the Darque Blade. Her current bounty leads her to a synthetic planetoid on the outskirts of civilized space. There she's ambushed by a rival and thus begin Kit's adventures in the game.
Blade Kitten was born out of the need to bring together years of unused and unfinished ideas into a cool, fun universe that I could channel my creative energy into. These ideas feature all the geeky cool stuff that I loved like anime visuals, giant robots, big swords, aliens, cool fun science fiction and a serving of fun.
169w ago - Today 2K Sports Community Manager Ronnie Singh has shared a video of NBA 2K11 PS3 featuring Michael Jordan and revealing some more PlayStation Move details.
To quote: This year, we decided to blow all the doors off and introduce MICHAEL JORDAN to the 2K Sports family as the cover athlete for NBA 2K11 (in stores everywhere 10/5/2010).
Like most of you basketball fans, Michael Jordan is my idol and synonymous with basketball greatness. You can read about how you will get the chance to relive his career in 10 of his most iconic games in The Jordan Challenge.
In MJ: Creating a Legend, you can put Michael Jordan on any modern team you want! Kobe and MJ on the Lakers? Teaming him with Wade and LeBron on the Heat?
Putting him on the current Bulls with my buddy Derrick Rose? You can build his abilities (the killer instinct that came later in his career over his always brilliant athletic ability) as well as the chemistry with that team in this mode.
But NBA 2K11 also has an exclusive PS3-related feature...
170w ago - Producer Filipe Pina has shared the first video for Under Siege today alongside PlayStation Move details!
To quote: Hi everyone! We're proud to present Under Siege today. In a nutshell:
• Under Siege is a real-time strategy game exclusive to the PS3 and the PSN store.
• It includes a juicy single player campaign as well as online and local multiplayer content.
• The in-game Editor enables players to create their own maps and share them with the world!
What's that you say? How juicy is the campaign?
For starters, the single-player campaign in Under Siege does not include those pesky grinding levels many other strategy games have; You don't have to spend half an hour getting wood to then build a base, and so on.
Your army is always there with you, growing persistently from level to level. Your army also gains experience ranking up as they fight, so it's important to keep them alive because when they die... well, we like to think that they were somebody's son.
Oh, and you found a new race in the swamp that wants to join your cause? They can! Because in Under Siege, your army is made up of every race found in the game. This makes for some interesting strategy tactics for...
