172w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has announced today alongside a new video that Planet Minigolf will be getting PlayStation Move support beginning in September, 2010.
To quote: We are proud to announce that on September 19th, we will release a free update patch that will enable PlayStation Move support in our PSN title Planet Minigolf!
It's a match made in heaven, as adding PlayStation Move to the mix adds a new level of realistic and immersive gameplay to your favorite mini golf game. Check out the trailer below to see the PlayStation Move controller in action.
So, how does PlayStation Move make Planet Minigolf better? Well, think about how you play mini golf in real life on a course with a putter and you'll get the idea. Hold the PlayStation Move controller like a putter and putt away.
The guys in the studios have worked really hard on the putting gameplay mechanic and we've really nailed it. Depending on how hard you swing the club, you expect the ball to go a certain distance, so we took that concept and built around it so the physics of the ball and the force driving the ball are accurate. We can't really think of a better way to experience the PlayStation Move controller!
185w ago - Today JoyStiq (linked above) reports that Sony is planning to officially reveal the rumored Premium PSN+ service at E3 2010 for $9.99 a month, which VG247 hinted at last week.
According to SCEE President Andrew House, this information appears to be accurate based on his recent response, to quote:
"I can assure you that the current PSN as you know it will remain a free service. It is something that our competitors don't offer and something that shows our loyalty to the PlayStation Community.
However, Kaz Hirai stated a few months ago that we were looking at a premium service to sit alongside the current free service and that objective has not changed. You'll learn more about it very soon."
From JoyStiq, to quote: "Joystiq has been informed that PSN+ subscribers will also have the ability to enable an auto-patching feature, which will detect, download and install updates for recently played PS3 titles on the system.
