35w ago - DrinkBox Studios COO Graham Smith announced alongside a launch trailer video that Guacamelee rolls onto PS3 and PS Vita today.
To quote: I'm extra excited to announce that Guacamelee! comes out today on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN.
We're releasing the game as part of the Spring Fever promotion: $14.99 will get you both the PS3 and PS Vita versions, with a 20% discount for PlayStation Plus members.
Still there? Then allow me to add that Guacamelee! is a metroid-vania style brawler that supports Cross-Buy, Cross-Save, Cross-Control, has a precious Platinum trophy, and comes complete with rapid punching action.
Punch, punch, punch! Speaking of which, you may now be saying, "Hey guy, what's up with all of the punch talk?" Take a look...
Well, when we started making Guacamelee! we knew we wanted to include punching, but not just ordinary punching. We built a proof-of-concept demo, a video of which I have included below for your approval.
As you can see, we had blocking, we had holds, and we had charge-up moves. You'll be interested to know that we now have none of those things! Why, you ask?
36w ago - Curve Studios Lead Designer Sam Robinson has announced today that Stealth Bstard sneaks onto both PS3 and PS Vita video game platforms this Summer.
To qyote: Hello! I am utterly overjoyed to bring you news that Stealth Bstard, our outrageously devious stealth-puzzle platformer, will be sneaking its way on to PS3 and PS Vita this Summer!
If you've not yet heard of Stealth Bstard, it's our deadly stealth platform game with a fast paced twist! Following your birth in a cloning lab, you find yourself trapped in a vast and overwhelming network of dastardly chambers, replete with vicious, yet hilarious, booby traps and deranged robots!
Your task is simple; stay out of sight and get to the exit. Persevere to the bitter end and you might just discover the secrets of this vicious world!
We like to look at Stealth Bstard as stealth gaming without the waiting. Gone are the days of hanging around in a locker or a conveniently-placed human-sized crate! The mechanical foes of our stealth world are much less forgiving, instantly eviscerating you or your fellow captives on sight!
The game boasts brilliantly crisp visuals, an abundance of character, tight controls and a steady difficulty curve that gradually ramps up...
43w ago - Team 17 Digital Ltd Communications Exec Bethany Aston has announced today that Superfrog HD is leaping onto PS3 and PS Vita this year.
Below are the details, to quote: You may remember that last week we published a blog piece on the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita release of Alien Breed, in which our Creative Director, Kevin Carthew, made a sneaky reference to potential future retro-revivals of other classic Team17 titles.
Today, we're unveiling our plans to release Superfrog HD later this year, 20 years after the regal amphibian's first appearance. Superfrog HD will feature all new graphics, and is set to make an appearance on both PS3 and PS Vita.
Debbie Bestwick, Team17's Managing Director, says, "We're extremely excited about bringing Superfrog HD to PS3 and PS Vita; it's the most requested game that our fans are always requesting to see make a return.
Now, with the 20th anniversary of the original Superfrog and the recent re-release of our classic survival-horror Alien Breed, we feel the timing has never been better."
Superfrog was originally released on Amiga in 1993 and received much critical acclaim:
The One Amiga - 93% - "With Team17's impeccable track record I was expecting Superfrog to be well above par but it's far more than that...
45w ago - IO Interactive Studio Communications Manager Nick Price has announced today that Hitman: HD Trilogy is stepping out of the shadows and onto PS3!
To quote: The release of Hitman: HD Trilogy today on PS3 and PlayStation Network brings Hitman: Blood Money onto the PlayStation format for the first time. With it come two additional classic Hitman games - Silent Assassin and Contracts.
More than anything else IO Interactive has created in the past decade and a half, Hitman has been the defining series for the studio. Five titles in the franchise have been released in the last 12 years, across most AAA platforms available within the same time period.
The combination of the assassin fantasy, game mechanics and freedom of choice makes the Hitman series the most original set of games we have made at IO. Nobody had ever really seen a game like Hitman before – not even the developers who were about to create it.
It was a game about a stone-cold killer, but with tongue-in-cheek humor to balance the very mature themes in the game. As Tore Blystad, Game Director on Hitman: Absolution, says: "When dealing with such a dark topic ... you need something in there to compensate, to make it less cynical.
In the start of Absolution development we tried...

Well, we're stoked to announce that ALG classic Mad Dog McCree - in all its FMV glory - will be releasing this Tuesday, January 22nd on PlayStation Store.
We've completely remastered this shooter from the ground up, so get ready to unholster your PlayStation Move motion controller and take down that ruthless outlaw Mad Dog McCree!
This PS3 release includes a bunch of new features you could never get in the arcades. First off, the original video has been remastered in 720p and a fresh new interface was created to give a true western feel. Fresh difficulty modes will give even the fastest quickdraw a run to take out these vicious outlaws and post high scores to the worldwide Leaderboards.
Many gamers have fond memories of playing Mad Dog McCree in their local arcades and pizza shops, trying to show up their friends to see who the fastest gun is. Well, on top of the remastered HD video, leaderboards and Trophies, we've...
