Video: DuckTales: Remastered PSN Hits PlayStation Network Today

49w ago - Capcom Producer Rey Jimenez confirmed that DuckTales: Remastered PSN hits PlayStation Network today with a trailer video below.

To quote: I've been working with the team at WayForward Technologies to bring you guys DuckTales: Remastered, launching today for PS3 as part of PlayStation Store PLAY.

At the start of development, the main goal of the project revolved around updating the game while keeping the gameplay true to the original NES game.

As the game progressed in development, we found that all of the new content really started to bring the original cartoon to life as well.

For those that may not know, the original DuckTales is firmly seated in the pantheon of the greatest NES games of all time. Widely praised for its tight controls, addicting platforming, and some of the best 8-bit music known to humanity, DuckTales stood apart as a fantastic licensed game.

When creating DuckTales: Remastered, the very first step was to make sure the game felt right, meaning it played just like the NES version. To do this, early versions were tuned so that you could play the original NES version of the game and our new version at the same time with one controller. So for your pure platform gamers, you're going to find that this game just feels right.

Video: Unlock the Mysteries of Open Me on PS Vita Today

100°
49w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi invites fans to unlock the mysteries of Open Me, which officially arrives on PS Vita today.

To quote: We hope you're ready to think outside the box, 'cause Open Me for PS Vita is available today on PlayStation Store!

We received an amazing response from everyone when we announced Open Me back in March, and we've been listening ever since.

First off, we created a trial version that you can download for free so you can get a feel for the game. Secondly, the trial version includes the multiplayer box mode, so grab your friends and take on the challenge together!

After you've taken Open Me for a test drive, purchase the full 12-pack game for $9.99, or one pack for $0.99. If 12 packs are too many, and one just isn't enough, we created a 6-pack bundle (24 boxes) for $5.49. Enough packs, puzzles, and boxes for you?!





We didn't think so either, so we partnered with three teams in Japan Studio to create three collaboration boxes! If you purchase one pack or more, you'll also get the Tokyo Jungle box, Toro's box, and the Gravity Rush box for free!

The Smart AR in Open Me works especially well when you use the Original AR Marker, so if you have a...
 

Video: Payday 2 Out on PS3 Today, Plan the Ultimate Co-op Heist

50°
49w ago - Overkill Software Game Director David Goldfarb shared a new launch trailer video announcing that Payday 2 is out on PS3 today!

To quote: If you're reading this, Payday 2 is almost out - and the Overkill team is off on well-deserved vacations planning our next heist.

It's hard to express just how excited we are about the game finally being available for everyone to play. But soon, everyone will be able to mask up and get their heists started for real!

If you're new to Payday, you've got a lot to look forward to. Payday 2 is an intense and dynamic first-person four player co-operative robbery game unlike any other. It's equal parts RPG and action game now, allowing players to rob banks, jewelry stores, art galleries, and a hell of a lot more.

Even, uh, unusual jobs. Our angle, even on the first Payday, has been "make a game where you feel like you are the bank robber" and we've referenced everything from Breaking Bad to Heat to make that happen. We want to make players feel like they're really experiencing all the tension and high-stakes action of a life of crime.





Veteran Payday: The Heist players are going to remember the intense four-player heisting with the old Payday gang of Hoxton,...
 

Sony PSP and PS Vita Sale Starts Today on PlayStation Network

50°
50w ago - Sony PS Store and Plus Content Manager Chris Howe announced that the next PSP and PS Vita sale starts today on PlayStation Network.

To quote: It's been quite a ride so far as we have worked our way through the consoles that have made the PlayStation brand a global phenomenon.

But our story would not be complete without taking a look at our handheld platforms. The PSP revolutionized portable gaming with amazing screen, robust multimedia capabilities and connectivity with our other Sony platforms. But what we all really love are games, and the PSP produced some real classics.

Our very own God of War: Chains of Olympus tops it for me but how can we forget Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, WipEout Pure and Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions.What a great library.

That brings us to our latest console, the PS Vita. Now in terms of lifespan, PS Vita is just a youngster, so what we want to know from you is what your best moments with it have been so far? This magical piece of kit is here to stay and it's only going to get better with the PS4!

Personally I love playing FIFA 13 on its crystal clear screen; it passes the time brilliantly on my journey to and from PlayStation HQ every day. I am also eagerly awaiting the release...
