142w ago - SCEA Producer Daimion Pinnock has detailed some new Super Stardust HD PS3 DLC dubbed Impact Mode that is hitting PSN this Spring.
To quote: We'd like players around the world to know that we've created a new game mode for Super Stardust HD that'll be out on PSN this Spring - it's called the "Impact" mode.
We want to thank all the fans around the world for your continued support - it has made Super Stardust HD a top selling PSN exclusive and enabled us to keep creating new content for the game even now over three years after its release.
2008 saw the release of the "Solo Pack," offering new game modes such as Endless, Survival, Bomber and Time Attack. That was followed by the multiplayer "Team Pack" featuring split-screen co-op and deathmatch modes for up to 4 players.
Additionally, the game then broke new ground by becoming the first ever PlayStation 3 game to feature Trophies.
In 2010 we gave players the exciting option to experience the game in real 3D, one of the few of its kind as it creates 120 unique frames per second.
Now in 2011 with the new Impact mode add-on, Super Stardust HD continues to be the most comprehensive shooter experience available.
The Impact mode plays on and twists the game rules -...
142w ago - Hothead Games Director of Game Technology Joel DeYoung has made available a PSN launch trailer video today on Swarm which is hitting PlayStation Network soon.
To quote: We're super excited that Swarm is finally about to be released on PlayStation Network. The genesis of the original idea for the game stretches all the way back to 2006, shortly after we started Hothead.
There was an indie video game developer contest we wanted to enter, so we brainstormed a ton of ideas on what to submit. Dr. Mike Hayward, Hothead's resident Ph.D., brought forward a concept based on his doctoral research in artificial life.
He called it Swarm and it had plenty of science cred. We thought this was our contest winner, so we came up with a cute adorable character to go with his tech, the swarmite, and got to work on a prototype.
In the end we did very well in that contest, placing in the final four, winning the people's choice vote, and garnering $300,000 in winnings. Every time we wore a Swarm t-shirt in public, invariably someone would ask us about the character. People really seemed to like it. So we knew we were onto something. We just had one problem: what we created wasn't really a game.
143w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has revealed today that Outland is hitting PSN this Spring with two Co-Op Modes and more, as follows:
Last fall, I got a first look at Outland, a side-scrolling action game that casts you as an urban sophisticate-turned-spiritual warrior.
The dreamlike visuals, fluid platform mechanics, and sharp sword-based combat pointed to a fascinating PSN game.
Since then, developer Housemarque (creators of PSN classics Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD has been busy fleshing out the game with details that will make fans of the classic 2D side-scroller Castlevania: Symphony of the Night beam with delight.
A gorgeously illustrated introductory cinematic introduces you to the protagonist, a nameless, faceless modern-day urban dweller haunted by visions of a vast wheel, endlessly turning.
Maddened by the visions and unable to find relief, the protagonist seeks out a mystic shaman who guides him on a path of spiritual awakening and alerts him to a timeless, cyclical battle with a pair of god-like Sisters who created the world and now seek to destroy it. Guess what? The fate of the world is now in your hands. Lucky you!
"The Sisters are the final bosses in the game," explained Producer Adam Sarasohn....

143w ago - Beatshapers CEO Alexey Menshikov has introduced StarDrone today for PS3 which is now heading to PlayStation Network.
To quote: We are excited to introduce StarDrone, a game designed with a perfect blend of high-speed physics and pinball action, with strategic elements of break-out and object collection.
From a top-down perspective, you pilot the spacecraft across the galaxy, collecting pieces of Equilibrix in order to restore the balance of the universe and stop the expansion of evil G-Noids.
To add to the challenging gameplay, your spacecraft is always in motion and you don't have any direct control over it, only a grapple-hook which you can use to push and pull your craft into the orbit of specific nodes located all over the game field.
Cause your attackers to crash with rapid speed while collecting gems and power-up enhancements. Overcome perilous hazards and elude zillions of enemies in an effort to complete each stage with a record score. With simple gesture controls and unique, intuitive gameplay mechanics, StarDrone is friendly to beginners, at the same time challenging enough to bring you back for more and more.
