118w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has posted up a video today confirming that the World's Most Challenging Game is coming to PlayStation Network.
To quote: I am here to tell you about The Impossible Game, a new minis title that we are bringing to PlayStation Store.
The Impossible Game is a pure indie game. Developed by a small team, it quickly found its audience and successfully moved from one platform to another. Destructoid called it "Insanely addictive".
We are now bringing The Impossible Game to the PlayStation Store as a minis, so the game can be enjoyed by PSP players, as well as the PS3 players.
So, what makes The Impossible Game so special? It is known for two things - its addictiveness and threatening the sanity of anyone who comes near it. The Impossible Game is a rhythm-based platformer.
You control an orange square and you have to jump your way through a level full of obstacles, like spikes and gaps. The game's soundtrack helps you keep the rhythm. No complicated controls, no graphical gimmicks - just one button, your skill and the music is all you need.
Why is it "impossible"? It is unforgiving. Make a single mistake and you are back to the beginning...

118w ago - Today PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen has outlined the PlayStation Plus September 2011 offers for subscribers, as follows:
Before we get to what's coming to PlayStation Plus, we wanted to let you know that starting today, we're making a slight change to how we communicate PlayStation Plus updates.
Instead of posting twice per month on what's coming to Plus, we're going to be making one post that gives an overview of all the content that's hitting Plus in that particular month.
So today's post will cover content coming in September, and the next post will hit in the first Monday of October. Of course, with every week's Store Update post, you'll know what's going on the Store for Plus on that week.
Now to the good stuff! We've got some great content this month coming free to Plus subscribers including PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies, the furious shoot-em-up Astro Tripper, and the final game in the SEGA Genesis Collection, Altered Beast. The value of all three of these titles adds up to more than a $24 savings, which doesn't include the additional minis and PSone Classics you'll get this month too.
This month also marks a special occasion as we're celebrating the Resident Evil 15th Anniversary with PSone Classics: Resident Evil Director's Cut, Resident Evil...
118w ago - Today SCEE Contributing Editor Roland Fauster has shared details on Dragon's Dogma: Dragons and Unlimited Freedom on the PS3 entertainment system!
To quote: The people at Capcom should be no strangers to establishing a new IP on the market. Since the Japanese company introduced their first multi-part franchise in the mid '80s with Ghosts 'n Goblins, they have been known for establishing franchises that run for many years.
Along with such legendary titles as Street Fighter and Mega Man, this strategy has enabled them to create and develop things such as, in particular, the survival-horror genre.
However, it was interesting to meet Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi at gamescom and to watch him demonstrate Capcom's latest offering, Dragon's Dogma. What was shown on the screen in the tiny booth was neither slugfest nor survival-action title, nor a new approach for an arcade concept either.
What Capcom had announced in April, probably more out of sheer habit, as action-adventure was in fact the first open-world RPG in Capcom's 33-year history.
Indeed, with Dragon's Dogma Capcom is not abandoning their extensive expertise in action gameplay; however, the presentation at gamescom focused mainly on the most basic aspect of an...
