72w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has announced that Foosball 2012 drops on PlayStation Network today and has shared the official launch trailer below.
To quote: Jakub from Grip Games here! Today is a great day for our small indie studio - Foosball 2012 is out today on PSN! I'm stopping by today to answer a few questions about the game.
Foosball 2012 is another entry in the line of not-so-typical-for-a-console-game sports, like darts, bowling, pool, or golf that we have seen recently on the PlayStation Store. If you weren't sure which platform to get the game on, we think you'll appreciate that when you buy the game for PS3, you'll get the PS Vita version for free and the other way around!
A lot of people ask us "Why foosball?" and we keep telling them "Why not?" Other games that wouldn't seem to be well-suited to a console experience managed to capture the essence of those games, and we hope to do the same with Foosball 2012.
It is not just about playing foosball, it's about playing a quick, skill-based game, that is easy to handle, but difficult to master. A game with a great multiplayer component and entertaining single-player mode, lots of customizations and Leaderboards to keep track of where you and your friends are standing against the global competition.

72w ago - Today Communications Manager Nick Clarkson of Team 17 Digital has announced that Worms Revolution will be taking to the Battlefield this October.
To quote: Not many games can claim to have survived as long as Team17's Worms.
Born from a simple idea, Worms first appeared in 1995! Now, 17 years later, Worms Revolution is heading to PlayStation 3. It will be available from the PlayStation Store as of 10th October priced at £9.99/€12.99.
It's a completely new game built around the classic Worms 2D gameplay, but it also boasts a range of new, exciting features. Gamers will notice the game's highly polished visuals but it won't be until the action begins that they'll marvel at new physics objects, dynamic water and an awesome class system.
To introduce the plethora of new features, we've created a series of five developer diaries. Here's Worms Revolution's designer, Kev "Chesh" Carthew to introduce the game and tell us how the series came to be.
And if that grabbed your interest take a look at the second clip below to delve a little deeper into the development process with Ian Lindsey, the game's lead programmer.
