3 on 3 NHL Arcade Coming to PSN Tomorrow for PS3!

100°
271w ago - 3 on 3 NHL Arcade Lead Designer Matt Mahar made the following PlayStation Network announcement today:

Greetings from EA Sports! I'm Matt, lead designer for 3 on 3 NHL Arcade coming to PSN for PS3 tomorrow for $9.99. As you might know, there are no options out there for consumers to play an Arcade style hockey game.

There are Street versions of sports games, but Hockey has never been one of them and the NHL dev team felt that we could fill this void with a top quality product and give the users a game to enjoy. And PSN has it exclusively for the first week!





And, we want to turn people on about hockey – we truly believe it is the best sport on earth and want to show it off to people. So we built Arcade to attract people to play a hockey game when they might not usually play one. Also, it acts as a great creative outlet for our development team that has worked very hard on EA Sports NHL products.

3 on 3 NHL Arcade is being developed by the same team that brought you NHL 09, winner of 10 sports game of the year awards. Arcade provides a complete package with online and offline play, as well as Power-ups, 40 NHL superstars, stat tracking, and leaderboards. As far as game modes are concerned, we have Play Now and Online Play....
 

Resident Evil 5 Demo for PlayStation 3 Live on PSN Today!

400°
271w ago - Thats right, the RE5 Demo is now available on the PlayStation store!!

Download size is 942mb. To quote Capcom's Shawn Baxter:

Hey everyone, I'm Shawn Baxter (Snow) from Capcom-Unity. Our amazing Resident Evil 5 Demo goes live today on PSN, so I thought I'd tease you a bit with some of the cool things to expect, whether you're an old fan or new to the series.

One of the first things I noticed is how good the game looks. It's hard to get by the beauty RE5 has to offer. Better still, you get to play through two beautiful stages in the demo. Aside from the sweet graphics, there's plenty more that the demo has to offer.

For those new to the series, the controls can seem a bit different than you may expect. The RE brand has always forced you to take your time, stop while shooting, and conserve your ammo. It really helps add a sense of tension a normal shooter can't offer. But to help those who are new to the world of RE, we have new control types that ease things up a bit. M

y favorite is Type A, which is probably best if you're a fan of the previous games, especially RE4. Next on my list is Type D, which I find myself loving more and more. Type D is best if you're new to the game, and it offers something the...
 

Savage Moon Coming to PlayStation 3 via PSN Tomorrow

250°
272w ago - Today Fluffy Logic Producer Ana Kronschnabl shared some background on Savage Moon, which is due for release on the PlayStation Network store tomorrow as follows:

For the last few months we've been hard at work on our take on the Tower Defense genre. Although here in the UK we spell it 'defence' ;-).

If you've not played any tower defence games, you're missing out. They are a great off-shoot of real-time strategy games where the player can only build static defences and the enemy is the one on the move. Our art director, Stuart, introduced us to a few of the games on the net and needless to say, work around the office dropped to zero as we got hooked.





At the time we had been given a couple of PS3 development kits by Sony to play around with and we thought, "Wow, we'd love to do our own take on this." We threw around a few ideas then went up to see Sony and surprisingly enough, it turned out that they had been thinking exactly the same thing.

Thus Savage Moon, our first game for the PS3, was born. It is due for release on the PlayStation Network store this week for $9.99...we're very excited.

First off we wanted to give the game a bit of a story. All the tower...
 

Capcom: No Online Play for Bionic Commando: Rearmed on PSN

100°
272w ago - Capcom producer Ben Judd shared his opinion on Bionic Commando: Rearmed with Gamasutra recently, stating that excluding online play from Rearmed was "the right choice."

To quote: "After seeing the large amount of headaches, additional production time and cost that comes with adding online, I'm glad we made the choice not to include it."

He noted that many digitally distributed games are plagued with online problems and that "additional sales would not have been equivalent to the additional pains" needed to add online play to the game.

While we certainly have to agree that digitally distributed games have their share of online problems - something any XBLA user can tell you - we can't help but imagine the glories online play could have brought to Bionic Commando: Rearmed.
