172w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has announced today alongside a new video that Planet Minigolf will be getting PlayStation Move support beginning in September, 2010.
To quote: We are proud to announce that on September 19th, we will release a free update patch that will enable PlayStation Move support in our PSN title Planet Minigolf!
It's a match made in heaven, as adding PlayStation Move to the mix adds a new level of realistic and immersive gameplay to your favorite mini golf game. Check out the trailer below to see the PlayStation Move controller in action.
So, how does PlayStation Move make Planet Minigolf better? Well, think about how you play mini golf in real life on a course with a putter and you'll get the idea. Hold the PlayStation Move controller like a putter and putt away.
The guys in the studios have worked really hard on the putting gameplay mechanic and we've really nailed it. Depending on how hard you swing the club, you expect the ball to go a certain distance, so we took that concept and built around it so the physics of the ball and the force driving the ball are accurate. We can't really think of a better way to experience the PlayStation Move controller!
172w ago - Trendy Entertainment Founder Jeremy Stieglitz has shared a video reveal today confirming both PlayStation Move and PS3 3D support for Dungeon Defenders on PSN.
To quote: Dungeon Defenders, the new swords-and-sorcery action game, is coming to PSN this winter!
Let me introduce you to the basics of what DunDef (as we affectionately call it) is all about. Inspired by the cooperative antics of Castle Crashers, along with the careful interplay of strategy and tactics in Defense of the Ancients, DunDef is a definitive genre hybrid: cooperative tower defense and online role-playing action bonanza!
Whether you're playing locally (in one-to-four player split-screen) or online (which also supports split-screen), DunDef puts you in control of one of four unique Hero classes, tasked with defending your 'Eternia Crystals' against increasing waves of 'toon-fantasy baddies.' To achieve this you'll upgrade your Hero's statistics, develop unique new abilities, and collect & upgrade an arsenal of weapons & equipment, and even raise your own pets.
At any point you choose to, you can decimate the tide of creatures spewing...

Press Release: SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. are thrilled to announce that the critically acclaimed Virtua Tennis series is in development for PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, featuring full PlayStation Move compatibility and 3D technology.
Developed in Japan by the original Virtua Tennis Team, Virtua Tennis 4, releasing in 2011, promises a more immersive, true to life tennis experience than ever before.
Virtua Tennis 4 with the PlayStation Move is more than just hitting the ball; it's about the angle of the racquet, the spin and speed of the ball and the power of the shot.
The advanced motion sensors of PlayStation Move precisely track both the fast and subtle movements of the controller allowing for pinpoint accurate shots as players improve their racquet skills. Virtua Tennis 4 will also support 3D technology delivering unprecedented realism to the tennis experience, bringing you closer than ever to being out on the court.
"Virtua Tennis 4 is a fantastic example of how our 3rd Party partners are seeing the potential not just in PlayStation Move, but also 3D," said Simon Rutter, Senior Vice President,...
175w ago - Today Electronic Arts via developer Bright Light has announced Create for PS3 complete with PlayStation Move support, and also coming to the PC, Wii, Xbox 360 and Mac this November, 2010.
Similar in concept to the popular LittleBigPlanet, Create allows players to use their creativity to solve problems and build their own levels.
To quote: "Create uses families' imaginations to develop new ways to play together that are both fun and challenging, said Harvey Elliott, VP and General Manager at EA Bright Light. "We wanted to design a game where the entire family can explore, decorate, and solve challenges where no solution is wrong and the only limit is the imagination.
PlayStation 3 owners will be able to use the PS Move to use the tools in Create to build and play their own levels while Wii owners will obviously be able to use the Wii-mote. There does not appear to be any support for Kinect for the Xbox 360, however.
The more players explore the game, solve level-based challenges, and customize their world, the more rewards will be unlocked. Creativity will be unleashed as players design environments with easy-to-use brushes and tools, including textures, props and animating objects that bring the scene to life.
