50°
170w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America's Product Evaluator Nick Suttner has announced today that Eufloria will be pollinating PSN in June, showcasing the evolution of ambient RTS action!

To quote: Myself and a group of other SCEA folk are busy ramping up our Pub Fund program, helping independent developers to bring their games to PSN without the restraints of a traditional publisher.

There are no specific criteria, outside of selecting games that we think are interesting and that we're dying to play ourselves: Joe Danger, Hoard, Explodemon! and Tales From Space: About a Blob are recent examples that came to fruition with the aid of our program.

We have a RIDICULOUSLY KILLER slate of titles lined up for the future, and we're going to try and do a better job of giving you guys a heads-up about them so that you can share in our excitement, and hopefully help support the developers who are trying to do things a little differently.

And that brings us to [Register or Login to view links], which we're thrilled to announce as our next Pub Fund title!

Video: MotorStorm Apocalypse PS3 DLC Launches Today on PSN

50°
171w ago - Evolution Studios Games Director Matt Southern has posted up a video announcing that MotorStorm Apocalypse PS3 DLC launches today on PSN.

To quote: The timing of MotorStorm Apocalypse hasn't exactly been ideal.

I remember waking on the morning of the Friday, near the end of what was already a pretty heavy week gearing up for European release, switching on the news and being stunned. My first thought wasn't for the game, but for our Japanese Producer and his family.

Just a short while after the devastation he emailed me to apologise for having to suspend the ongoing tests for MotorStorm! That sums him up, and his fellow countrymen - courageous, unflappable and so gracious, even in the face of such tragedy. It really put everything into perspective. We did the right thing when we decided to delay it.

Now that we're available in Europe (and soon to be released in the US), it's time to make good on our promises to everyone already playing the game and start unveiling some of our add-ons. I hate calling it 'DLC'; it makes it sound like a spreadsheet template or something.





First-up, you've got two weeks from today to pick up the ultimate 'Stormer status symbol: the Supercar...
