We are pleased to announce that we putting the finishing touches on a new update for HVB, which will hit the PlayStation Network TOMORROW! Excited? Well, the best part of this is that the new update - all new features included - is FREE! For our brothers and sisters in the north, that means FREE for you, too.

Tokyo Game Show 2008 Hands-On: Spelunker for PSN

50°
309w ago - Spelunker is a remake of the NES classic from Irem. Does it look familiar to you? Do you remember the game from way back in the day, 20 years ago?

If you do, it's probably because the aesthetics haven't changed much. Though boasting updated, modern graphics, the game's visuals retain a retro-stylized feel. The 2D characters are still there.

The lifts and ladders are still in the places they would've been. Overall, it looks like an interesting title for those old-school gamers looking for a blast from the past.

Of course, the question is: How does it play? First off, the controls are simple enough. It's a 2D game with a focus on platform jumping, with other actions including: riding down elevators; leaping over pits; climbing ladders; and dodging fire, steam, and toxic liquids.

You can collect items such as bombs to demolish obstacles in your way, or keys in order to progress through locked sections of a stage.

It all sounds very simple, familiar and arcadey -- in other words, a perfect fit for a PSN game. Right?
 

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Demo Arrives at PSN on October 16, 2008

309w ago - Per Alan McDermott (Audio Lead, Evolution Studios) via PS Blog today:

Since Day 1, I knew it wasn't going to be easy to put a soundtrack together that would have the right vibe for a festival of racing like MotorStorm. You see, Music is one of those things that no one is ever "wrong" about. Everyone has an opinion, and everyone knows best, but no one is ever wrong!

After countless discussions with various people involved in creating the Festival Infrastructure around the MotorStorm racing events, my challenge was set: I needed to put together a lineup that not only fit with a racing game, but one which could feasibly be the Festival line up to end all Festival line ups.

It had to be Anarchic, Aggressive and Raucous. That was the easy part. The tough part was making sure that the soundtrack became as much a signature of MotorStorm as the racing itself was.





With Pacific Rift, I faced the same challenge, but this time, it had to go one better. Up to eleven, if you like. First things first, considering this time around we were allowing the player to play their own music while racing: How do we give the player something that, no matter which way it's looked at, is valuable? How do you put value back in to a licensed soundtrack,...

Hey everyone, my name is Kevin Furuichi and I'm the new Executive Producer here at the PlayStation Network.

The Qore team's put together a spook-tacular, monster-themed Halloween Special for Episode 05 available in the PlayStation Store on Thursday, October 9, here's a preview:





Fallout 3
Nuclear winter in Washington, D.C. and mutated humans and beasts are really not so happy about the way things turned out. Do you dare leave the bunker and confront their radiation-amplified personality issues?

Resident Evil 5
The series that invented the term "Survival Horror" is back and better than ever on PlayStation 3 - just don't call them "zombies" - they HATE that!

Dead Space
Talk about creepy. Our "trio of terror" is complete with a game that's banned in China, Germany, Japan. When you see the gameplay, words really fail to describe... well, actually, how about "Strategic Dismemberment." Also included is an exclusive graphic novel!

Shaun White Snowboarding
Well, it's not exactly spooky, but Olympic Champion Shaun White is a monster on any mountain. Veronica meets...
