Below are the details, to quote: You heard correctly:LittleBigPlanet Karting is finally launching today!

All of us at United Front Games and Sony San Diego Studio have been hard at work on this game for nearly two years, so we're very excited to finally see our fans get their hands on Sackboy's new karting adventure.

In LittleBigPlanet Karting, visitors known as the Hoard have arrived from far, far away on speedy go-karts and seek to steal Craftworld's most precious prizes. Now it's up to you to hop in a kart, beat back these otherworldly invaders, and reclaim Craftworld once and for all! Before you take the wheel, though, we have some launch goodies to share with you.

In celebration of LittleBigPlanet Karting's launch, we have a brand new trailer we're ready to show off. From a new single player journey, to racing and battling online in the multiplayer mode, to creating and customizing your own levels with an expanded set of unique creation tools, it's clear that LittleBigPlanet Karting offers players a virtually endless set of gameplay possibilities.

76w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Cade Peterson has shared some launch video footage today announcing that Assassin's Creed III and ACIII Liberation arrive tomorrow with PlayStation exclusives!

To quote: The time has come, PlayStation Assassins! We are very pleased to announce that both Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed III Liberation will be available tomorrow on PS3 and PS Vita, respectively.

To celebrate, we'd first like to draw your attention to our Assassin's Creed III launch trailer, which you can watch below!

As an exciting bonus for our PlayStation Assassins, PS3 players will get day-one access to four exclusive missions at no extra cost.

The bonus missions cover one of the most dastardly betrayals in American history: the treachery of Benedict Arnold! We don't want to give too much away, but fortunately we have a trailer that goes over a few key details...





Starting tomorrow afternoon with the PlayStation Store update, PS3 owners will be able to download the four PlayStation-exclusive missions (note: you may have to play up to a certain progress point in the main game in order to actually access them).

Video: Retro City Rampage Launch Trailer for PS3, PS Vita Tuesday

50°
79w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has shared a Retro City Rampage launch trailer video for PS3 and PS Vita today, with the title arriving this Tuesday for fans.

To quote: After months (years?) of anticipation, the big moment is almost here: VBlank Entertainment's long-gestating 8-bit open-world homage Retro City Rampage comes to PS3 and PS Vita tomorrow on PSN, complete with the ever-coveted Cross Buy and Cross Save features.

If you've never heard of Retro City Rampage, a) shame on you and b) I scarcely know where to begin! Imagine jamming all your favorite 8-bit games into a sprawling open world ala Grand Theft Auto and you'll have a rough sense of this game's special brand of pixelated magic.

Retro City Rampage has more than 60 Story missions that span driving, stealth, platforming, shooting, swimming, and questing (just to name a few) as well as 40 Arcade challenges if you're in need of a quick release.

Looking for more numbers? Try these: 25+ weapons and power-ups, 50+ driveable vehicles, and 2.5 hours of glorious chiptune symphonies. And let's not forget what might be the most important number of all: $14.99.

Let's give the freshly released launch trailer a looksee!
