WipEout, PlayStation Minis & Just Cause 2 Hits PlayStation Home

50°
198w ago - Sony Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has revealed today that WipEout, a PlayStation Minis Event, Just Cause 2 and Sodium updates are all included in this weeks PlayStation Home content.

To quote: WipEout - one of PlayStation's most celebrated and longest-running franchises - turns 15 this year. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're launching the WipEout Museum - a brand new space stuffed to the brim with games based upon this critically-acclaimed series of hypersonic, futuristic racers.

In other news, we'll be opening the doors of the new Observatory space this Thursday, July 8th, for the PlayStation minis event. Challenge your friends to a battle of wits, memory, and luck over a board consisting of a grid of glowing tiles.

Flip the tiles over to reveal a variety of minis images; reveal two matching tiles to score a point. To keep things interesting, we've riddled the board with random tiles hiding bonuses and traps (such as a tile that steals points from your opponent).

You can even hide traps of your own, weakening your opponent and securing the spoils (which, of course, come in the form of a highly-collectible reward). Elsewhere in the Observatory you will find the pool-esque FreezeBall game, which rounds out the exclusive PlayStation minis...

650°
200w ago - A few months back Sony updated their PSN TOS/User Agreement presumably due to the PS3 OtherOS removal, and today TheSixthAxis.com (linked above) spotted another update that pertains to the upcoming PlayStation Plus service which arrives next week.

When you hop online with your PlayStation 3 or PSP console next, the PSN Terms of Service update you will be asked to agree to states Type 2 content (outlined below) may be unavailable if you don't renew your subscription immediately at the end of each period.

Video: Tales From Space: About a Blob for PS3 is Coming to PSN

100°
202w ago - DrinkBox Studios Co-founder & CEO Ryan MacLean has announced today that Tales from Space: About a Blob for PS3 is coming to PSN later this year, and has shared a trailer for the video game.

To quote: We're currently working on our first original game: A monster-movie-inspired platformer called Tales from Space: About a Blob.

I'm very happy to announce that we will be bringing the game to the PlayStation 3 via PSN toward the end of this year!

Tales from Space: About a Blob is a game about a race of alien blobs that land on an Earth-like planet and start eating everything around them. Eating is just what Blobs do – they can't really help themselves. Although the Blobs aren't really out to hurt anyone, mistrustful humans greet them with hostility.





The game is a side-scrolling puzzle-platformer with a monster-movie theme and retro art style. Humour is also a big part of the style.

Players will interact with the game environment using unique growth and absorption-related control mechanics, experiencing the world at vastly different scales as they progress. Both single-player and co-op play will be supported.

Two friends and I started DrinkBox...

204w ago - Game Designer Wes Bunn has revealed that UFC Undisputed 2010 is officially released today, and it includes the promised bonus PS3 content as well.

To quote: Just wanted to take some time to give some perspective on what went into this year's game.

If you're a fan of MMA, fighting games, or you just want to virtually choke out, punch, or kick one of your friends in the face, we think you'll find something to be excited about.

First off, let me just say that everyone on our team truly loves MMA. We're all fans of the sport, just like you. We get together and watch the fights all the time, and some of us actually train! The bottom line is that we're gamers, we love MMA, and we truly want to make the absolute best MMA game possible.

With that said, I think you will be pleased with the amount of changes and additions we've made to this year's game. The game plays so much faster than last year, is much more fluid and responsive, and the gameplay adjustments we've made (such as the Sway System and Cage Interaction) add a whole new level of strategy.

The game is just fun to play! Even if you haven't played...
