To quote: Here is the first and very early release of Swingball 2. Unlike its predecessor it is available not only for Wii but also for PS3 (with a PC version forthcoming).
There were some really cool user made levels for the original Swingball that did things I hadn't even thought of and I’m looking forward to seeing how people take advantage of the new stuff in this game.
There are now blocks that can be swung from but not walked on (they aren't solid). There are also tiles that will change the direction of gravity when you come in contact with them.
I haven't begun it yet but I plan to make a WYSIWYG editor which will make it even easier for people to create their own levels.
There is a lot left to do. The game currently just consists of a single test level.

113w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a Q&A and Better Shred Than Dead video today on SSX for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Whether it's the socially enabled online mode, the deadly new "Survive It" challenges, or the mammoth mountains modeled after NASA satellite maps, the new SSX is hardly short on ambition.
During a recent hands-on session, I caught up with art director and series veteran Geoff Coates to discuss how this classic PS2 series is handling the jump to PS3 for the first time.
During our chat, I was able to slip in some questions from the PlayStation.Blog community and squeak out some tantalizing hints of the PS3-exclusive Mt. Fuji level.
PlayStation.Blog: What does the PS3's technology bring to SSX? What can you do now that you couldn't do in the PS2 era?
Geoff Coates, Art Director, SSX: I worked on all the previous SSX games, and at the time we had a lot of big ambitions that we couldn't execute due to technological limitations - whether it was console hardware power or software holding us back. We've just caught up now from a technical perspective, so it seems like the best possible time for a new SSX game.

To quote: Hello everyone, I am glad to introduce the long awaited PS3 Remappable controller. This project started with the express intention of granting Chuck Bittner his desire to remap the buttons on a standard controller.
With this controller, Chuck will be able to remap the buttons on any current and past game that he normally would have to pass on due to the ergonomics of the default button layout. But his petition is much more important than that, as it will allow stock controllers the same ability for all games in the future. So please visit his petition (petitiononline.com/cu5t0m/petition.html) and support the cause.
OK. Now onto the main event! I have spent better than 6 months of late nights (I dont have free time before 10PM) getting this modification to work just right. I have made the decision not only to make the first controller...
