44w ago - Sony Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has announced today alongside a video trailer thatRocketbirds for PS Vita launches on February 12th, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: Hello again! I'm happy to announce that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken for PS Vita will be available very soon for download on PSN - February 12th, in fact!
The game is already available in Asia, where it was bundled with the PS Vita over Christmas, while it was also available exclusively to Asian PS Plus members. Since then, it became one of the top three most-downloaded PS Vita games on the PSN Top 10 PS3 and PS Vita Games in December list in Hong Kong, which is awesome!
In this game, you'll take control of Hardboiled Chicken, the original Cock of War (a chicken so tough, he survived being boiled as a fetus), to lead the rebellion against the draconian penguin oppressors to overthrow their hold on Albatropolis! It's an old-school cinematic action-adventure set in the Rocketbirds universe, a world filled with some despicable and often violent birds.
45w ago - Today R*Q at RockStar Games has announced that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is out now on PlayStation Network.
To quote: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile, is now available to download from PlayStation Store for $9.99 as part of the PS2 Classics collection.
That's the original game in digital form, and to complete the nostalgia, we've made the map that was originally packed in the game box available as a hi-res jpeg for you to print out and peruse next time you're lost in Little Havana.
We've also got the maps for GTAIII and San Andreas, both of which are already available to download from PS Store.
Ten years have passed since Vice City was originally released on PlayStation 2. Over at the Rockstar Newswire, we've been casting an eye back and celebrating that anniversary with a series...
53w ago - Today Sony Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has shared what is new in Rocketbirds: Hard Boiled Chicken for PS Vita, which is taking flight in 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: It's my pleasure to tell you that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is coming to the PS Vita in the first quarter of 2013!
Rocketbirds, our cinematic platform adventure game, has come a long way from its three IGF finalist nominations back in 2010. Since then, we listened to people's feedback and vastly improved the game for its PS3 release in October 2011.
That version had more technical improvements than we could shake a stick at; we made it fast and included stereoscopic 3D, added a new Jet Pack mode, a two-player couch co-op campaign and polished the heck out of it.
We received more great feedback, so when it came down to the PS Vita version, we jumped at the opportunity to iterate on the game once more. We added things like new chapters, puzzles and humor; a unique new Hardboiled difficulty setting; improvements to the controls to utilize the PS Vita's unique features; and improved connectivity for the cooperative campaign.
From the beginning, I've really wanted to include...
67w ago - Project Director Matthew Nordhaus has announced today that Rock Band Blitz is heading to PlayStation Network tomorrow and has shared a new video trailer below.
To quote: There's a moment during game development when you have to let go of your game and release it to the world.
You're sitting in your office, thinking about all of the choices you made, wondering whether people will find it fun, engaging, beautiful, scary, funny. Is your vision going to be realized? And then you take a deep breath and let it go.
How do I know? I'm the Project Director for Rock Band Blitz, and for me that moment came about two months ago. I guided the development of the game over the course of the last year.
The creative, smart, talented team that made Rock Band Blitz can't wait for you to play the game on your console and see, at long last, the result of all of our hard work.
Rock Band Blitz is a downloadable PlayStation Network game. It's the latest entry in the Rock Band family, and rather than using plastic instruments you play with a standard DualShock 3 controller.
At its core, it's still a rhythm beat-match game: you smash notes in time with the music. But in contrast to the full band experience of traditional...
