Video: Mushroom Wars is Coming to PS3 on PSN This Thursday

100°
271w ago - Today Creat Studios Director of Business Development Scott Hyman has announced that Mushroom Wars is coming to PSN this Thursday for $9.99.

To quote: It's Scott at [Register or Login to view links] again, here to tell you about our seventh (yes, seventh!) release for PlayStation Network in 2009. Our new RTS, Mushroom Wars, will be available for $9.99 this Thursday, October 15.

Now, you're asking, what exactly is Mushroom Wars? Do I have to battle evil, killer mutant zombie mushrooms? Well, as cool as that might sound, (hmmm...maybe there's a future PSN release!), you don't battle the mushrooms themselves, but you will do battle for the mushrooms.

Mushroom Wars is a fast-paced and accessible RTS, with a quaint, anime-inspired visual style where you send your cute armies into battle, upgrade your mushroom bases, improve your weaponry and fight skirmishes in close-quarter maps.

You can play against the AI or kick your friends' butts in Campaign mode. The Skirmish mode lets you quickly jump right into battles. Local multiplayer allows up to four players to tough it out to see who's the baddest army in the meadow.





We're very excited about Mushroom Wars, and we're confident that you'll...

Video: TGS 2009: Quantum Theory PS3 Update

272w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a TGS 2009 Quantum Theory PS3 update video from Tecmo, as follows:

Last time we saw Quantum Theory was at E3 2009, and the game was so early as to not even be playable.

Now with this gothic 3rd person shooter at about the 50% point in development, Tecmo allowed us to go hands on before granting us an interview with Director Makoto Shibata.

The playthrough helped us come up with a number of questions about the game, as did you readers. Here are the answers, as translated by Localization Producer Peter Garza:

I apologize for the fact that I'm practically yelling at Shibata-san; this dude over at the neighboring Alienware booth was incredibly, obnoxiously loud. If you were there, you know who I'm talking about.

Anyways, with a good deal more development to go, we'll keep tabs on this game for you, and report back at the next milestone.

272w ago - In Japan this week during CEATEC (an IT and Electronics exhibition that runs from October 6-10, 2009) Sony's PS3 console made an appearance with an interactive digital advertising demo for onlookers.

During the demonstration, the PlayStation 3 displays various visual effects on the screen, including water and fire, with the hand movements of the people captured on cameras used to modify them along with recognizing and highlighting their faces.

To quote, roughly translated: "The 'Interactive Signage' combined with PlayStation 3 console. These PS3s are synchronized to be used on multi display.

The Cell proccessor used on PS3 is fast enough for realtime graphical effects. Combined with face detection and motion sensor, it can deliver visual contents which will best fit the viewer.

The demo PS3 system mixes video from HD camera and visual effect on real time. In the video, notice the right screen. Along with facial movement, hydroscopes are automatically drawn on audiences' face."
