Video: Watchmen: The End is Nigh Interview & Chat Tomorrow

50°
281w ago - Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell shared a Watchmen: The End is Nigh interview video today as well as news on a live chat session tomorrow, to quote:

One of the most popular graphic novels of all time hits the big-screen this Friday, with 300 director Zack Snyder at the helm.

So while I am figuring out a way to snag IMAX tickets for Friday, Watchmen fever is spreading to the PS3, with the downloadable title coming to PlayStation Network this Thursday.

Jeff and I recently visited with Warner for a little hands-on time with the game, and I grabbed associate producer Jerry Pritchard for some questions.





And Jerry was nice enough to agree to come on back to the Blog tomorrow from 11am - 12 noon for a live chat about Watchmen: The End is Nigh for PSN. So get your questions ready because we're doin' this all over again!
 

No Gravity: The Plague Of Mind Coming to PSN Tomorrow

250°
282w ago - Today Sebastien Rubens of the PlayStation Blog announced news that No Gravity: The Plague Of Mind is hitting PSN tomorrow. To quote:

No Gravity, a science-fiction space journey that goes beyond a simple space shooter, hit the headlines for the first time in 2007 as a "homebrew" game for the PSP. It was acclaimed as a game that "puts tons of retail games to shame with its incredible polish."

It was a long time ago, and since then, No Gravity has been entirely rewritten and improved to meet higher standards: this is the new version you will be able to download on the PlayStation Store tomorrow for your PSP.





You will be able to choose up to 5 spaceships (paired with pilots), each of them having different capabilities that you can use to your advantage across 31 different missions (each mission is composed of different sectors).

Some spaceships are faster which can help with time limited missions, or have more powerful weapons which help destroy bosses, or have better shields which can help sustain attacks from highly powerful weapons.

The most powerful two ships will be unlocked when you reach some specific goals. Note that you will be able to use any ship in the first person, but...
 

Noby Noby Boy Coming Tomorrow to PS3 on PlayStation Network

50°
283w ago - Keita Takahashi of Namco Bandai Games shared a new gameplay video of Noby Noby Boy, which is to be released tomorrow on PSN. To quote:

Come to think of it, Noby Noby Boy will be released on Feb 19th, tomorrow! Well, my apologies for the delay to those who have waited the game. Matching the release date with other territories was tougher than we thought, but the good thing is that I could have some interesting experiences in the game.

With Noby Noby Boy, you can send a message to other players while playing without going to the XMB, and the received messages are displayed on the body of Boy.





Checking the game spec, I sent a message requesting approval to add a friend and my request was accepted instantly, and I received a message. Below is an image of the message shown on Boy's body.

Surprise! It says, "welcome to paradise." It's such a worn-out cliché, but I like it! Exchanging messages with people via online games has become nothing special, while I don't play games much, let alone online, receiving this message really delighted me. It was even somewhat impressive because I didn't expect it and of course it proved that the messaging function was working.

Oh, I almost forgot about the game. Yes, the...
 

3 on 3 NHL Arcade Coming to PSN Tomorrow for PS3!

100°
285w ago - 3 on 3 NHL Arcade Lead Designer Matt Mahar made the following PlayStation Network announcement today:

Greetings from EA Sports! I'm Matt, lead designer for 3 on 3 NHL Arcade coming to PSN for PS3 tomorrow for $9.99. As you might know, there are no options out there for consumers to play an Arcade style hockey game.

There are Street versions of sports games, but Hockey has never been one of them and the NHL dev team felt that we could fill this void with a top quality product and give the users a game to enjoy. And PSN has it exclusively for the first week!





And, we want to turn people on about hockey – we truly believe it is the best sport on earth and want to show it off to people. So we built Arcade to attract people to play a hockey game when they might not usually play one. Also, it acts as a great creative outlet for our development team that has worked very hard on EA Sports NHL products.

3 on 3 NHL Arcade is being developed by the same team that brought you NHL 09, winner of 10 sports game of the year awards. Arcade provides a complete package with online and offline play, as well as Power-ups, 40 NHL superstars, stat tracking, and leaderboards. As far as game modes are concerned, we have Play Now and Online Play....
 

Mirror's Edge Exclusive FREE Time Trial Map Available Tomorrow

50°
286w ago - Mirror's Edge Producer Tom Farrer reminds us today that the release of the free and exclusive PlayStation 3 Time Trial map hits PSN tomorrow, and shares some of his thoughts on it as follows:

When we started Mirror's Edge we were working with abstract environments, quick test levels that we threw together so we could mess around with the moves.

Then came the game and the more realistic urban settings which were a lot of fun to work with but there was always a little voice in the back of our minds saying, "Remember when you could build any bizarre shape you wanted?"

We have been making a variety of maps for the upcoming release of the Pure Time Trial Map Pack. We didn't want to be limited by an urban setting; we wanted to "leave the city behind" and focus completely on the nature of movement itself.





The maps are all about exploring the purity of the core gameplay with nothing getting in the way.

Each map is quite different in style and had different inspirations. The look of the Sony-exclusive map "Synethesia" (that will be released separately and for free tomorrow, January 29th) was actually inspired by balloons of all things. However, we did decide to settle on an overriding theme – If Faith...
