Intellivision Comes to PlayStation Home with Updated Game Classics

100°
83w ago - Intellivision Productions Inc President Keith Robinson has announced today that Intellivision is coming to PlayStation Home with updated video game classics!

Below are the details, to quote: Intellivision Productions, Inc. is excited to announce three of its classic games are coming to PlayStation Home.

Astrosmash, Shark! Shark! and Night Stalker, which thrilled players in the early 1980s, have been upgraded while staying true to the spirit of the games' classic looks and game play. We think of them as "enhanced yet completely faithful conversions," but we call them Intellivision Gen2.

When the Intellivision console was introduced in 1980, it drew attention with its 16-bit graphics. Of course, it takes more than great graphics to make great games, and Intellivision fans quickly discovered the fun of iconic games such as Astrosmash, Shark! Shark!, Night Stalker and many others.

Until now, the games released by Intellivision Productions and its publishing partners have primarily been exact, faithful reproductions - usually deliberate emulations - of the original titles.

While this great for players who want to relive their childhoods, we've wanted to try updating the games a bit; putting in some features we would have liked to put in back then.

Video: Sleeping Dogs on PS3 and Telling Stories Through Games

97w ago - Sony Content Producer Simon Bramble has made available a video today spotlighting Sleeping Dogs on PS3 while discussing the art of telling stories through games.

To quote: New from developer United Front Games in conjunction with Square Enix London Studios is Sleeping Dogs, the stylish tale of undercover cop Wei Shen and his journey through the murky world of the Hong Kong Triads.

Executive producer Stephen van der Mescht of United Front Games took time out at E3 2012 to explain how Bruce Lee and PlayStation 2 classic Bully have helped shape this extremely promising title, and why we're seeing gaming leave its teenage obsessions behind.

What is it about Hong Kong that inspires?

Stephen: So many things. Its history in cinema, in martial arts, kung fu, everything as far back as Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Chow Yun Fat, John Woo. What's interesting for us is seeing those older action movies and the new wave of Hong Kong cinema like Infernal Affairs and that shift towards more serious story telling.

There's such a richness there and, from a gameplay standpoint, you think...
