260w ago - EPOS Game Studios CEO Olof Gustafsson shared the first tips and strategies for Crash Commando (available on PSN tomorrow) via PS Blog as follows:
We introduced Crash Commando to you last week, and now that the game is out tomorrow on PlayStation Network, we wanted to talk more about the game modes and give you some tips about how to rack up the kills.
The game modes:
DEATHMATCH and TEAM DEATHMATCH
Free-for-all frenzies or team-based skirmishes. Reach the target score first to win! In these modes, bots can be included offline as well as online.

260w ago - Originally announced in May 2007, Dissidia: Final Fantasy instantly intrigued Final Fantasy gamers all around the world. They were initially sceptical, but at the 2008 Jump Festa, Western media got their hands on the game and showered it with glowing praise.

It all comes to an end tomorrow though, as the game will officially be released to the Japanese public and we're eagerly waiting to see what the sales figures are like for the game as the potential is huge!
Although there is rumor that the street date for the release has been broken today, we shouldn't let that marr the occasion that will mark the release of this celebration of 20 years of Final Fantasy tomorrow on the 18th of December, 2008.

The day we've been waiting for is here! And this is just the beginning...

We also have a tutorial built in that will get you started with the controls, as well as help menus for you to reference in the Menu Pad. If you don't have a USB keyboard or Bluetooth headset paired with your PlayStation 3, now is the time to do so - either option will allow you to easily talk and meet everyone.
