60w ago - Sanuk Games Manager Yan Marchal has introduced the Arkedo series today proclaiming that three games in one will be blessing the PS3 entertainment system tomorrow.
To quote: I'm happy to announce the release of Arkedo Series on the PlayStation Store for PS3 tomorrow, October 16th! Arkedo Series is a collection of three tightly crafted arcade games that will douse your console in a colorful world and challenge you with some serious old-school action!
First comes "JUMP!", a platformer where your 8-bit hero must collect bombs before they blow up, while avoiding nasty little bats, 2-way powered crabs, sharp stalactites, spikes from hell, and a bunch of other oddities.
The game is so truthful to the old-school experience that it has no 'continue': once you've lost all your lives, you have to start it all over again - but in a good mood!
Then comes "SWAP!", a Match-4 game where you must clear blocks before they reach the top of the screen. Combos, bonus blocks, power blocks and time freezers will help you escape critical situations and dominate the five worlds contained in the game. And once you think you're done, you'll find out that there are still a number of things waiting for you in Challenge mode!
Last but not least comes "PIXEL!", the platformer that will have...

80w ago - XDev Associate Producer Neil McPhillips has shared some fresh video footage today of When Vikings Attack, which is coming to both PS3 and PS Vita consoles with cross-play support!
To quote: Hey folks, I'm here today to announce a new PSN title coming this year! I'm very excited to introduce When Vikings Attack for PS3 and PS Vita.
In this all-action fighting adventure, a battalion of Viking invaders, 1200 years late to the party, are causing havoc in your town.
Imagine getting together a posse of local citizens: a construction worker, a butcher, a policeman, a pastor, and a schoolboy, then ripping up a phone booth or picking up a car,and hurling it at the advancing Viking hordes. That's the sort of crazy action you can expect in this totally new and original PSN title for PS3 and PS Vita.
Grab whatever you can and get ready to do battle!
Featuring both adventure and Versus gameplay modes that can be played with one to four players, the game has been winning fans within the walls of PlayStation with its manic, quick-fire gameplay ever since it came into being.
Did I mention that it's also a full cross play/save/buy title? So all gameplay modes can be played between PS...
83w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared answers today to some common PS3 multiplayer questions in the upcoming title Aliens: Colonial Marines for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system below.
To quote: If you're like me, you've been watching the recent Prometheus trailers (spoilers!) over and over, pausing only to wipe the frothy spittle off your chin.
If you're really like me, you've also been wondering, "what's it gonna take for some talented studio to create a killer game based on the Alien films?"
Luckily, Gearbox Software is building an increasingly compelling case with Aliens: Colonial Marines, an upcoming big-budget PS3 shooter that aims to pick up where James Cameron's seminal 1986 film Aliens left off.
While we know a good bit about the game's tense single-player campaign, details about its multiplayer component have remained frustratingly elusive. So we took to Twitter and posed @PlayStation followers a simple question – what do you want to know about the multiplayer mode in Aliens: Colonial Marines?
We received a flood of questions - some insightful, some maniacally detail-oriented - and presented them to Gearbox...
86w ago - Sony Associate Product Manager Ken Chan has announced today alongside a video trailer that GT Academy 2012 is gearing up for May 1st with details below, as follows:
It's time to gear up for GT Academy 2012! The competition starts on May 1st and will be open to all entrants through June 24th.
Developed for racing fans of all levels, GT Academy 2012 will offer a newly designed eight-step training and qualification program accessible as a demo based on the hit Gran Turismo 5.
The demo will be made available for free on PlayStation Store via PSN and will maximize the potential of all users, from beginners to advanced drivers. All participants will compete in a series of virtual driving trials using Nissan cars, and the best of the best will compete in the National Finals in July.
The action will then jump from the virtual cars of the PS3 game to actual Nissan sports cars when the winners of the National competition are invited to take part in the intense international Race Camp competition in August, where one ultimate GT Academy winner will train with elite racecar drivers and race as part of a professional team.
