160w ago - Today Associate Producer Michael Santora at PopCap Games has announced that Peggle is hitting PSP and PSPgo next Tuesday via PSN.
To quote: PopCap has already brought you Bejeweled 2 and Zuma for the PSP, and I'm excited to tell you that we have brought the full Peggle experience to the PlayStation Store on PSN!
I was the Associate Producer of Peggle and Peggle Nights for the PS3, and I know a number of you wanted to see this game come to your PSP so you could take it on the go. Remote Play is awesome, but you don't always have an internet connection when you want to play, right?
Our expert Peggle Institute Programmers were able to get the full, original Peggle Experience into your PSP. All the original Masters, challenges, and levels in adventure mode are here! There were some late nights and long meetings with Bjorn and Master Hu, but we got there!
Peggle on the PSP took us a lot of time to get right to make sure we created a game that looked good on the smaller screen (I hope your PSP has a smaller screen than your TV!) and felt right with the PSP controls.
I hope you are all as excited about this as I am, and thanks for liking our games as much as we do! It's a pretty awesome feeling to get such a warm reception...
166w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared several Ubisoft video game title updates that are destined for PSN today, including Beyond Good & Evil HD, Scott Pilgrim DLC, From Dust and Outland!
To quote: In addition to the games - From Dust, Outland, Beyond Good & Evil HD and Scott Pilgrim DLC - Ubisoft also revealed future Facebook integration for titles like the upcoming Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.
In the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood example shown, you'll be able to train and interact with your guild of assassins on Facebook (while at work, for example), and then have that experience translate back into the PS3 version of the game, and vice versa.
"You will continue to see brands like Assassin's Creed across all content types," Ubisoft VP of Digital Publishing Chris Early told us. "We want the player to experience the brands whenever and however they want."
We also went hands on with the titles listed above. Here are some quick recaps:
Beyond Good & Evil HD
Perhaps the biggest news of the evening was final confirmation that the PS2 fan favorite and cult classic Beyond Good & Evil will be re-released as a downloadable PSN title. Beyond Good &...
172w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced today that virtual AlphabeTees are hitting PlayStation Home this Thursday alongside the best of the PlayStation Home Community.
To quote: Last week we offered you a preview of a brand new game known as AlphabeTees - a social trivia game exclusive to PlayStation Home.
The reaction from the community was, to say the least, incredibly positive. Your overwhelming enthusiasm is the reason why it brings us such pleasure to announce that AlphabeTees will be releasing this Thursday into the wide world of PlayStation Home.
AlphabeTees takes the standard trivia game to a whole new level. Think: Scrabble (or a crossword puzzle) that requires teamwork, with you and your friends using clothing to answer VeeMee's trivia questions. Here's a quick overview of the AlphabeTees game play:
• Buy the AlphabeTees Game Pack from Central Plaza (or Threads in the PlayStation Home Mall).
• Look out for questions on the Central Plaza Jumbotron screen.
