101w ago - Today SSX Creative Director Todd Batty has shared an E3 2011 video detailing the use of NASA satellite maps to create new SSX runs and footage of the PS3-exclusive Mount Fuji level!
To quote: To be honest, I was completely overwhelmed by the reaction to SSX coming out of E3.
In the early days of this project, there was a lot of debate internally at EA about how many SSX fans still existed and how much interest remained in the market for games like SSX, and even some of the games we have taken further inspiration from such as Burnout and old-school Tony Hawk.

110w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has unveiled a video today showcasing the new Sorcerer's Lair Table for ZEN Pinball on PSN.
To quote: Today we are unveiling Sorcerer's Lair, a brand new ZEN Pinball table! It has been awhile since our last blog post, but we hope you have been enjoying Marvel Pinball and keeping your skills sharp on other ZEN Pinball tables.
All eight of our studio pinball teams have been hard at work over the past few months developing new tables.
Set in an ancient Citadel that is controlled by an evil Sorcerer, you play as a brother and sister pair who find themselves caught in the Sorcerer's spells and traps.
It is up to you and your ghost sidekick, Whisper, to take down skeletons, spiders and ghosts as you try to defeat the Sorcerer and restore peace to the Citadel.
This fantasy themed table is full of hidden modes and secret unlocks, so it will take some time to really discover the intricacies of Sorcerer's Lair.
As you have come to expect from every ZEN Pinball table, there is no shortage of interactive 3D objects, multiple modes of play, secret unlocks, online multiplayer competition...
