Star Wars Pinball Standalone Hits PSN Next Week, New Features

50°
64w ago - Zen Studios Community Manager Bobby Loertscher confirmed today that Star Wars Pinball Standalone hits PSN next week with some new features detailed below.

To quote: Wait, what? Didn't Star Wars Pinball already launch on PSN? YES! And you are telling me it is launching again? YES! Okay, that was probably super confusing, so let me try to explain.

Believe me, it's a good thing. The initial Star Wars Pinball pack was released in February for Zen Pinball 2 on PS3 and PS Vita. That pack included Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and it's coming back... this time, with even more features. Cue Star Wars opening crawl text...

From the very beginning of the Star Wars Pinball project, we've been working on a special standalone version of the game that would offer some really fun community features and would be fully branded Star Wars. We managed to finish that project, and it's releasing next week, exclusively on PS3 and PS Vita!

Now you're probably wondering, "Why did I buy this for Zen Pinball 2 when I could have bought a game with different features?" Don't worry, young Padawan, we thought about that too. If you've already bought the tables in Zen Pinball 2, you are entitled to download Star Wars Pinball at no charge!

Video: Soul Sacrifice is Out Next Week, New Pre-Order Trailer

50°
66w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa shared a new pre-order video trailer today announcing that Soul Sacrifice is officially out next week with details below.

To quote: Hello, PlayStation friends! We hope you're enjoying the recently released Soul Sacrifice demo.

Remember - online multiplayer support for the demo will end when the game launches next Tuesday, so if you've been curious to see how the infrastructure online handles, check it out sooner rather than later.

Just as importantly: your save files carry over to the finished game, and doing so is the only way to get your hands on a special magical Offering, so check out the demo if you haven't already.

The full game will be out next Tuesday, April 30th, but there's still time left to pre-order! Instead of yet again writing about all the goodies set aside for folks who reserve their copies, we decided to make a video. Enjoy!





We've got plenty more to share, including the second (and final) part of our special sit-down with designer Keiji Inafune, so stay tuned!

66w ago - Amanita Design Founder Jakub Dvorsky confirmed today that acclaimed indie adventure Machinarium is coming to PS Vita next week.

Below are the details, to quote: We're thrilled to be bringing our acclaimed adventure title Machinarium to PS Vita on 1st May. When the PS3 version was released, we called it the best version of the game.

In it, we added lots of new features - like the ability to zoom in to get a closer look at the scene, magnetic hotspots, 12 Trophies and more.

The PS Vita version makes no compromises. In fact, it's even better! It includes all the enhancements from the PS3 version, but we've added some new features to complement PS Vita's capabilities.

You can now control the game not only with the system's analogue sticks and buttons, but also directly with your fingers on the touch screen and rear touch panel. We've improved the zoom feature too, so it's more convenient to play the game in a portable capacity.

The graphics, music and sounds are presented at full quality, and everything runs smoothly and looks as beautiful as ever on Vita's gorgeous 5″ OLED display. For the best audio experience, put on some nice headphones so you can fully enjoy the award-winning soundtrack by Floex.

We've also integrated PSN...
 

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita: Marvel Arcade Pack is Coming Next Week

50°
70w ago - LittleBigPlanet Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has confirmed today that the LittleBigPlanet PS Vita Marvel Arcade Pack is coming next week.

Below are the details, as follows: For those of you eagerly salivating over new adventures for Sackboy on the PS Vita... well, you need drool no longer! We are delighted to announce a brand new game add-on for LittleBigPlanet PS Vita; the Marvel - Arcade Pack!

The Marvel - Arcade Pack contains three fantastic new games, each of which will challenge you in very different ways. In Hero Rush, you'll team up with three of your favourite Marvel heroes - such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, or Thor - and try to survive for as long as you can.

Shoot for high score heroics by avoiding plasma beams, rockets, and all sorts of obstacular trickery. Of course, obstacular isn't a real word, but you should never let a dictionary get in the way of your Marvel heroics!

In the mind-bending puzzler Avengers: Ultimate Escape guide several Marvel heroes, including Hulk, Captain America and many more, through a deadly maze. The cool thing about this game is that the challenges you face will be completely different depending on the hero you choose!

And last, but by no means least, we have S.H.I.E.L.D. - Interceptor! Take control of the Quinjet...
