33w ago - Giant Sparrow Creative Director Ian Dallas has announced today that The Unfinished Swan flies to PSN on October 23 and has confirmed early PS Plus access too.
To quote: When you make a game about something unusual like, say, throwing paint in an all-white world, you expect to get a lot of questions. But we were surprised that the question we got asked the most turned out to be "when can I buy it?"
Now we have an answer: you can buy The Unfinished Swan on October 23rd exclusively on PSN for $14.99. And if you're a PlayStation Plus member, you can get the game a week early - October 16th.
In the meantime, there's still a lot to learn about the game. You've met the King, now get to know us: the team behind it all.
In the first of a series of developer diaries, we'll lift the curtain and give you some background on Giant Sparrow, the beginning of The Unfinished Swan and how we landed on PlayStation Network.

Leading up to launch on October 23rd, we will be back to dive in and show you all you need to know about The Unfinished Swan. For more news about the game you can check out the Giant Sparrow company...
48w ago - Dust 514 Community Manager Phil Wang has announced that the Mercenary Pack arrives on PSN today and grants Beta Access this Thursday with details below, as follows:
Later this year, there will be an unprecedented level of combat in gaming raging across the entire EVE Universe, from the mighty capsuleers far above in Eve Online, to the relentless onslaught you and your squad will bring to bear against your enemies on countless planets in DUST 514.
The first, harrowing drumbeats of war started not long ago and have been increasing ever since during our beta tests. Until today, this has been of very limited scope while we've introduced some of the EVE Universe's most faithful players to planetary warfare and trickled in some of the earliest of adopters who have picked up their rifles and laid low the opposition.
But that all changes this weekend when we'll be opening the doors to thousands of new combatants through our beta events. There's still time to sign up over at our official Beta Web site to participate in this important, and early, testing period for the game.
Signing up for the beta and playing DUST 514 is completely free! But for those who want to try an assortment of the pay-for items, get guaranteed access to beta weekends,...
51w ago - Today Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm of Team Rebug have released a PS3 4.11 Version Spoofer 2.2 for 3.55 CFW and also a Rebug Update Package 0.7 (3.55.2) which temporarily restores PSN access once again on Custom Firmware!
While this is great news for the time being to play 3.55 titles (3.56+ won't work) online, Sony will likely release a PlayStation 3 Firmware update to block the new method being used in coming days in order to resecure PlayStation Network with an updated PSN Auth X-Platform-Passphrase (which resides in a decrypted VSH.SELF) and prevent PS3 Custom Firmware users from gaining access unfortunately.
If you are unsure if a PlayStation 3 game or patch update will work on PSN via PS3 CFW, simply extract the PARAM.SFO from the PKG and view it using a PS3 PARAM.SFO Editor to examine the PS3_SYSTEM_VER value. If it is 03.5500 or below the game will work online and the patch update can be installed.
