65w ago - Intellivision Productions Inc President Keith Robinson has announced today that Intellivision is coming to PlayStation Home with updated video game classics!
Below are the details, to quote: Intellivision Productions, Inc. is excited to announce three of its classic games are coming to PlayStation Home.
Astrosmash, Shark! Shark! and Night Stalker, which thrilled players in the early 1980s, have been upgraded while staying true to the spirit of the games' classic looks and game play. We think of them as "enhanced yet completely faithful conversions," but we call them Intellivision Gen2.
When the Intellivision console was introduced in 1980, it drew attention with its 16-bit graphics. Of course, it takes more than great graphics to make great games, and Intellivision fans quickly discovered the fun of iconic games such as Astrosmash, Shark! Shark!, Night Stalker and many others.
Until now, the games released by Intellivision Productions and its publishing partners have primarily been exact, faithful reproductions - usually deliberate emulations - of the original titles.
While this great for players who want to relive their childhoods, we've wanted to try updating the games a bit; putting in some features we would have liked to put in back then.

71w ago - THQ UK Interactive Marketing Manager Mike Richardson has shared a video today proclaiming that The Creatures of Darksiders II officially welcome death on the PS3 entertainment system this August.
To quote: We've just released the first all-gameplay trailer for Darksiders II, which sees the most feared of the horseman of the apocalypse, Death, going up against some of the creatures from the game.
The Ancient. The Corrupted. The Holy. The Damned... Death comes for all.
The trailer shows off several key characters from the game, but we wanted to provide additional context as the game marches towards its August 14th release date.
Like his fellow Horsemen, Death is of a race known as Nephilim - among the most powerful beings in the Universe. When mankind received the prize of Eden, Absalom - leader of the Nephilim - led his armies against Heaven and Hell in an attempt to steal it back. For this crime, the Charred Council condemned the Nephilim to destruction.
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were granted a reprieve from this fate on the condition they aid the Council's victory over their kin. The Horsemen accepted, but it was Death who bore the greatest burden of guilt...
