165w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has shared details today on Knights in the Nightmare for PSP to help fans master 'bullet hell' in this strategy RPG game.
To quote: Because Knights in the Nightmare is so radically different than any other game currently available for the PSP system, it tends to offer most gamers a slightly steeper than usual learning curve.
In order to make acclimation to the game's amazingly satisfying mix of strategy-RPG and bullet-hell action, here's some tutorial-style stuff to get you started before Knights in the Nightmare hits stores and PSN on November 9th.
You are The Wisp. You awaken with no knowledge of where you are or why you're there. Only one thing draws you: a battered, cursed castle. There, you sense, a terrible tragedy occurred. You find you have the power to awaken and control the spirits of victimized knights, and you find yourself compelled to use this power to uncover the story of this calamity and rid the castle of its curse.
You begin every chapter of the game with a story sequence. These cutscenes are one of the game's biggest strengths–lovingly drawn and animated, they are heavy with emotion and stray far from your typically bright and happy clichés.

273w ago - Ex-Xbox head Peter Moore has revealed how Microsoft was "completely fixated on Sony" with its Xbox Strategy.
Speaking in the second part of an interview with The Guardian, Moore revealed that Nintendo wasn't even considered when discussing console strategies with Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer (and now Wii's at the top).
"In January (2003) I flew up [to Redmond] and had lunch with Steve Ballmer and you don't say no to Ballmer," Moore said, discussing his route into Xbox. "We had a great lunch and he convinced me that Microsoft was going to take on Sony; so I get to put on my suit of armour, get on my horse and take on Sony again - but with a little bit more money this time!"
It was a classic "build or buy" conversation, said the now EA Sport boss. "Xbox had launched but it was an aggressive black box for shooters, and how do we evolve that, how do we build the next Xbox, how do we get after Sony?
"Interestingly, we were just completely fixated on Sony," Moore revealed. "Nintendo didn't even come into the conversation. But Steve was very compelling, particularly when you're one-on-one with him in his office - we talked about what we'd done to compete with Sony, where I felt their weaknesses were."
Microsoft had "a little bit of a concern" with Sony, Moore added....
