109w ago - International Affairs Manager Lucy Khatajaeva at Lesta Studio has announced that Time Machine: Rogue Pilot hits the PlayStation 3 entertainment system today on PSN for $6.99 with details below.

To quote: Later today, all North American PSN users will get full access to our new title Time Machine: Rogue Pilot.

Today, I'm finally going to answer one of the most popular questions: Time Machine: Rogue Pilot's classic (yet innovative) gameplay, multiplayer features, and extra modes will be available for as little as $6.99!

To celebrate our big day, we've reached out to members of the development team to learn what they like most about the game, what are they especially proud of, and what they think PSN users will most like. Here are their answers.

Andrey, Lead Programmer

Mood-o-meter. Seriously. I think it's a great idea - it's fresh, it's interesting, it's challenging. We even designed a special Trophy for it!

The better you play, the nicer the characters are - they smile, encourage you, and when the mood-o-meter is full, they give you an awesome superbonus that destroys like 50% of the tiles on the screen. Sounds rather easy, but you really need to play like hell in order to destroy the tiles fast enough to make that girl smile.

110w ago - PlayStation Digital Platforms Senior Director Jack Buser has posted up some videos today proclaiming that a new era for PSN officially begins with Journey!

To quote: It is an incredibly exciting time for PlayStation Network and PlayStation Plus.

This week we not only saw a midnight launch of Mass Effect 3 on PlayStation Network, day and date with the retail release, but we offered access to one of the best games of the year and one of the best downloadable games ever- Journey- a whole week early to PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Every month PlayStation Plus subscribers are getting more and more great content out of their subscriptions, and this week's early access marked a new milestone.

PlayStation Plus now not only offers gamers early access to demos and betas but also to full downloadable games, in addition to the tons of free and discounted content and extra exclusive features like online storage for game saves and automatic updates.

That's why we are so excited to be able to deliver Journey, one of the most highly-anticipated games of the year, to our most die-hard fans, our PS Plus subscribers, a whole week early so they can experience it before everyone else.

Sega on After Effects of Zombie Devastation in Yakuza: Dead Souls

100°
110w ago - Today Sega of America Community Manager Kellie Parker has shared some details on the after effects of zombie devastation in Yakuza: Dead Souls for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: When tragedy and devastation hit a place, even if it's a place you're very familiar with, it can be hard to remember what it used to look like. You may think you know every inch of a certain place, and then suddenly, it's unrecognizable.

To see how much things can change once the zombie invasion hits, here are some comparison screens of Kamurocho as it used to be and as it is now in Yakuza: Dead Souls.

• Before Zombies - a sunny day in Kamurocho.
• After Zombies - yeah, I wouldn't go in there if I were you.
• Before Zombies - what a nice vending machine!
• After Zombies - OH GOD, IT'S ON FIRE! (At least the traffic cone survived.)
• Before Zombies - I'm not sure that's a very safe parking spot...
• After Zombies - Uh, yeah. Sorry about your car, mister.

Yakuza: Dead Souls has all the crazy zombie-killing action you're craving, with a distinct Yakuza twist.

A pre-order campaign is currently running. Trust me - you don't want to miss out on the assets...
