Video: Ed Boon on Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat and PS3 DLC

200°
143w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a video today featuring Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon speaking on Freddy Krueger in the PlayStation 3 title along with the secret origins of the PS3 DLC characters.

To quote: In discussing the news, Boon shed light on the long, sometimes tangled genesis of Mortal's Kombat's other DLC characters - namely Rain, Skarlet, and Kenshi.

One began as a joke, one was an incorrect rumor, and one... well, you'll see.

Look for Freddy to hit PSN on August 9th for $4.99, and read on for my full chat with Ed Boon.

PlayStation.Blog: So what is the inspiration for bringing Freddy Krueger to Mortal Kombat as a DLC character?

Ed Boon, Creative Director, Netherrealm Studios: It was a number of things. It's kind of hard to choose a character who would fit well into the Mortal Kombat universe, with the blood and violence that's so associated with it. Kratos from God of War is a brutal, bloody character, so he makes sense.

When we had the discussions about the DLC characters, we knew that we wanted to add a returning character, a new character, but also a guest character....

177w ago - Hello Games Managing Director Sean Murray has shared a video today announcing a Joe Danger PlayStation Network sale alongside some gew characters, as follows:

When my three friends and I first got together as Hello Games and started work on Joe Danger, we never expected the amazingly supportive response we've had from the PlayStation community.

So what better time to have some fresh news than at Thanksgiving

First off some people still haven't even played the multi-award winning Joe Danger yet! Just for those patient people, between the 23rd and 30th of November you can purchase Joe Danger in the American store for HALF PRICE.

That's just $7.49 for what many are calling the "Game of the Year" on PSN (mainly this was our Mums... but they know their games). That's the cheapest 30 hours of death-defying, stunt-biking, high-octance gameplay you can get ANYWHERE.





To celebrate the sale, we're releasing some awesome new characters for Joe Danger, each of these comes with their own unique style, new motorbike, crazy new moves and special collectibles. Grab a new character to show off your new skills in multiplayer or use them to record hilarious replay videos!
 

The Saboteur is Available Today for PS3, Characters Detailed

100°
227w ago - Today Tom French, Lead Designer of The Saboteur, has shared some background details on the PS3 game's characters via the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: The Saboteur is actually out today!

I am truly excited that it's finally available and you can all play it now. Today, I want to talk about the different characters in The Saboteur.

Because the game is very story driven, it was extremely important to us to have a good solid cast of characters for Sean to interact with along the way while trying to get revenge on Dierker (if you're confused by what all that means, see my previous posts).

Our mantra for creating our cast of characters was "everyone has a problem." This was important because it meant we had to create back stories for all the characters to give them grounding and purpose in the world of The Saboteur. While we have a lot of different characters in the game, there are some really key players you should know about.

Jules - Jules is one of the most important characters in the game because his death is the ultimate motivating factor for Sean's romp across occupied France killing Nazis. It was a big risk to take to count on delivering Jules as a character. We hope the player likes him so...

227w ago - Team RamRod's Brandon Akiaten has announced that new High Velocity Bowling characters and Ball Packs are slated to hit PSN this week. A video is below, and to quote:

Happy Holidays Bowling fans! 2009 is almost over and we wanted to close the year out with a PAINful Xmas! That's right... Jarvis and Ginger are coming to High Velocity Bowling.

These are both available this Thursday 12/10 for just $0.99 each, and they each come with a new customized bowling lane and bowling ball! If that wasn't enough we also have two new ball packs coming your way also for $0.99 each!

For those late bloomers who haven't played the game yet, now's the perfect time to try it out. It uses the SIXAXIS motion sensors so you hold the controller and swing your arm like you're throwing the ball.

With 4-player local play and 2-player online, it's great fun for family and friends, and can be had for only $9.99 on PSN. In addition to the eight quirky, unique characters included in the base game, there are a bunch of other downloadable characters and ball packs available via in-game commerce or the PlayStation Store as well, on top of Jarvis and Ginger coming this week.

Here's the breakdown of the goodies coming this Thursday:
