49w ago - The Mark of Kri Executive Producer Jonathan Beard revealed making The Mark of Kri today, which is coming to PSN this Tuesday.

To quote: Editor's Note: Beloved PS2 Classic [Register or Login to view links] will be available on PS3 via PlayStation Store next Tuesday, so we reached out to the game's Executive Producer, Jonathan Beard, to ask for some stories and insights from its development.

He responded in kind, with one of the most detailed write-ups in PlayStation.Blog history, and a bevy of heretofore unseen concept art. Enjoy.

In the early 2000′s, I had taken over the role of studio director at SCEA San Diego, and moved from Foster City with some key members of the Blasto team. Tim Neveu who was the lead artist on [Register or Login to view links] was given the chance to produce his first game.

Tim and I had known each other for a while and shared a lot of the same interests. We often discussed classic games and were alligned on the kind of game we wanted to make - a "fantasy" game - big guy and a sword, maybe an axe.

We were both...
 

Video: New PS3 Visualizer App from Q-Games is Out Tuesday

50°
55w ago - Q-Games Producer James Mielke shared a video below today spotlighting the new PS3 Visualizer application from Q-Games which arrives this Tuesday.

To quote: Hi everyone! It's been a while but I'm back for a second tour of duty on PlayStation.Blog, although I should point out that I switched Qs in the interim (I was formerly a producer at Q Entertainment, and am now a producer at Q-Games).

The reason for my check-in here today is to announce a brand-new app (you'll find it in the 'Apps' section on PSN) for PlayStation 3 simply titled Visualizer, which, as the name suggests, is a new set of over two dozen music visualizers to use with your PS3's music library.

As you may know, Q-Games is known for its technological contributions to the games industry, in addition to its PixelJunk series of games. Q (initially Dylan Cuthbert and Kentaro Yoshida) crafted the legendary [Register or Login to view links] for the original PlayStation 2 reveal, and later as a company were responsible for a lot of the visual effects, XMB bar, and visualizers built in to the PlayStation 3. Q-Games also handled a lot of the interface programming on PS Vita, so, essentially, we know our way around Sony's hardware.

Hotline Miami Hits PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday with PS-Exclusive Mask

200°
62w ago - Devolver Digital's Nigel Lowrie announced today that Hotline Miami is hitting both PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday with a PS-exclusive mask!

To quote: Let's get to the news you've all been waiting for first - Hotline Miami will launch for $9.99 on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on June 25th!

The teams at Dennaton Games, Abstraction Games, and Devolver Digital have worked incredibly hard to reproduce the fast-paced gameplay and super tight controls of the original game, and we couldn't be happier with how Hotline Miami plays on PS3 and PS Vita.

The PlayStation versions of Hotline Miami will also have an exclusive new mask designed by Abstraction and Dennaton Games. After months of top secret bovine research, we finally get to unveil our new friend: Russell the raging bull.

Russell is hidden early in the game, and when equipped will turn the entire game black and white save the neon text and red blood left behind as you rampage through each floor of every level. It's a really neat effect, and even changes up the video filter a bit to give the whole game a classic film look.

There are also a bunch of new upgrades, like leaderboards for each level of the game, Trophies, and even touch support for lock-on targeting in the PS Vita version. Plus, Hotline Miami is a Cross-Buy...

There were once three men who did nothing but drink from morning until night. They were always the drunkest people in any tavern, and would argue and fight with...
