2w ago - Zen Studios Community Manager Bobby Loertscher confirmed today that Star Wars Pinball Standalone hits PSN next week with some new features detailed below.
To quote: Wait, what? Didn't Star Wars Pinball already launch on PSN? YES! And you are telling me it is launching again? YES! Okay, that was probably super confusing, so let me try to explain.
Believe me, it's a good thing. The initial Star Wars Pinball pack was released in February for Zen Pinball 2 on PS3 and PS Vita. That pack included Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and it's coming back... this time, with even more features. Cue Star Wars opening crawl text...
From the very beginning of the Star Wars Pinball project, we've been working on a special standalone version of the game that would offer some really fun community features and would be fully branded Star Wars. We managed to finish that project, and it's releasing next week, exclusively on PS3 and PS Vita!
Now you're probably wondering, "Why did I buy this for Zen Pinball 2 when I could have bought a game with different features?" Don't worry, young Padawan, we thought about that too. If you've already bought the tables in Zen Pinball 2, you are entitled to download Star Wars Pinball at no charge!

PlayStation 2 Classic
Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly - Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly project started relatively soon after the first project concluded.
Since we received lots of feedback that players got too scared to complete the game, we shifted our attention to making the storyline more interesting, to encourage such players to overcome the scariness in wanting to see the end of the story.
Motto Trump Shiyouyo! - Motto Trump Shiyouyo! is the sequel to the previously released Trump Shiyouyo!, but this time around there are even motto (more) games!

3w ago - Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson shared a new Fuse trailer confirming that the demo lights up PSN on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: We've been working on Fuse, our first new console game IP since Resistance: Fall of Man, for several years now. The wait is almost over - Fuse launches May 28th on PlayStation 3. For an early taste of Fuse, grab the demo - it launches on PSN next Tuesday.
The demo will allow you to experience lethal teamwork with up to three friends online (or 2-player split-screen). Overstrike 9 has tracked the stolen Fuse source to a remote Raven base in Pakistan's snowy Karakoram Mountains.
The team must stop rogue group Raven from carrying out its horrific plan to form a new world order. The section of the demo comes from around the halfway point of the game, so we've powered up the four characters a bit to give you a sample of all their capabilities (and you can level them up further!)
Now, some of you may be asking, what is this game? We'd like to say Fuse is what you'd get if you took the dry humor and lethal teamwork from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and combined it with the alien weaponry from District 9.
It's a uniquely Insomniac universe, one where villains occupy strongholds in exotic locations...
