157w ago - Executive Producer Martin Brouard at Frima Studio has announced today that A Space Shooter for Two Bucks will be hitting PSN on December 21, 2010.
To quote: Since we last stopped by to exclusively reveal the new trailer for Young Thor here back in August, we've been hard at work on the next game for all you Sony fans out there.
We're happy to report that it's nearly complete and most certainly continues our tradition of delivering some of the highest quality and rewarding experiences available on the platform. So, what's next in 2010 from Frima, the studio that brought you Zombie Tycoon, Widgets Odyssey I and II and Young Thor? The answer lies in the cosmos with A Space Shooter for Two Bucks!
With what we feel may be the most appropriate and what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) titles in gaming history, A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! is what the Frima Studio team has been working on for the last portion of 2010 and is one of the most exciting minis we've ever seen. For the ridiculously low price point of - yep, you guess it, $1.99 - it's also one of the most value-rich shooters ever.
And as a bonus, A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! is quite historic...

157w ago - Today SCEA Producer Kumi Yuasa has announced that Echochrome ii will be hitting PSN on December 21, 2010 and shared a fresh video below.
To quote: Wow, it's been some time since our last game update so I am very excited to announce that echochrome ii will be available for your holiday gaming pleasure on December 21st!
And if you're already enjoying PlayStation Move and our vast library of Move titles, then echochrome ii will be a great addition to your collection.
If you didn't see my last post and are curious as to what echochrome ii is all about, it's a unique puzzle game using the PlayStation Move motion controller to shine a light on a series of blocks and objects to create realistic shadows on the wall.
The blocks and objects you see in each level will cast different shadows depending on your movement so as you alter the perspective and angles by adjusting this light source, you will manipulate the shadows they cast to ultimately reveal a solution to the puzzle and guide your character to the exit. You can check out some actual gameplay in the video above.
Once you check out the game for yourself I think you'll enjoy how it uses PlayStation Move in this rather unique and original way. The best way...
158w ago - Team17 Software Ltd Head of Design John Dennis has announced today alongside a video trailer that Alien Breed 2: Assault hits PlayStation Network on Tuesday.
To quote: With Alien Breed 2: Assault launching on the U.S. PlayStation Store on Tuesday December 7th, we'd like to share a handy list of things you may not know about the game.
It's the direct follow-up to the PSN game Alien Breed: Impact. What's more, it's the middle entry in a trilogy of downloadable PS3 titles that reinvent Alien Breed, a series which has roots dating back to 1991.
The game is an action-packed top-down science fiction shooter where you must conserve ammo, scavenge for gear, and upgrade your arsenal to survive against a vast alien threat.
We've added a new Survivor mode. This can be played in single-player or in two-player co-op (online or local), and you must resist endless waves of intense alien horde attacks in specifically designed arena environments. Get competitive and compete on the Survivor leader-boards!
Survivor Mode hits and tips: Before playing Survivor, take some time in the single player mode to learn the layout of the map. It's also crucial to keep moving, as you'll be overrun by aliens quickly if you stay...
