152w ago - SCEA Santa Monica Studio Managing Producer Deborah Mars has revealed today that Fat Princess is getting fatter, with both Fat Roles DLC and a Fourplay Party Feature included in PS3 Patch version 1.06.
To quote: On Tuesday June 29, our favorite heiress to the throne will get a little added bulk thanks to our good friends at Atomic Operations, and we can't wait for all you Fat Princess fans to check it out!
Fat Princess Fat Roles DLC (USD $4.99) unleashes Pirates, Ninjas and Giants (oh my!) into the world of Fat Princess. These three new character classes bring a whole new level of awesomeness to the frenzied 32-player battles alongside our beloved royal beauty.
After picking up the DLC, a new multi-class magic hat spawner will be activated in every level of Fat Princess. Pirates can call in cannon ball attacks, Ninjas can hide in the shadows to sneak through doors, and the all-mighty Giants can cause rumbling earthquakes and gain health by chomping on their enemies.
We're also very happy to announce that Patch 1.06 activates the new Fat Princess Party feature!
Due to the overwhelming fan response, Patch1.06 delivers four-player same-console co-op for FREE to everyone...
155w ago - For those who can't wait until this fall to experience Sony's PlayStation Move and Move Party first hand, user H0yTecnologia has shared a new gameplay footage video of it in action via YouTube today.
Although PlayStation Move is implemented on the existing PlayStation 3 console, Sony states that it is treating Move's debut as its own major "platform launch," planning an aggressive marketing campaign to support it.
In addition to selling the controllers individually, Sony also plans to provide several different bundle options for PlayStation Move hardware, such as a starter kit with a PS Eye, a Move motion controller, and motion-control enabled software, priced under $100 US.
To quote from the video's caption, roughly translated: "In HoyTecnologia have had the opportunity to test the Alpha version of peripherals and Sony has done a very good impression."
158w ago - Video game Producer Chris Parry has announced that Skate 3 for PS3 is rolling into shops today along with sharing a video trailer and extending an invitation to EA's launch party, as follows:
The Skate franchise is back and rolling into some sick new territory with the release of SKATE 3 for the PS3.
There's tons of new stuff for Skate fans to get stoked on - a whole new city to skate, innovative new team and co-op gameplay, new difficulty modes that enable you to skate exactly how you want, and for the first time in Skate, a Create A Park feature that will change the way the game is played.
If you're new to the world of Skate, don't sweat it because we've added Skate.School, a fun place to session where you can learn the ins and outs of skating as taught by Coach Frank - this weirdly hilarious and oxymoronic "skateboarding coach" played by legendary pro skater and actor, Jason Lee.
Your mission in SKATE 3 is to start a skateboard company and sell boards. Sell enough boards and you'll unlock four huge skateparks and plazas that are also "create a parks" with all sorts of varied and super fun terrain to play with.
The dev team is especially proud of Skate 3's commitment to blurring the lines between...
160w ago - Sony Producer Tom O'Connor has shared a PlayStation Move developer diary video today detailing the upcoming Move Party title for PS3.
To quote: We debuted the game at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco back in March, and the response was awesome. Gamers are loving the augmented reality feature of the game.
Seeing the PlayStation Move motion controller transform before your eyes into objects on-screen, actually in your hand, is a pretty magical experience. Not to mention, the game is a lot of fun and we've been working hard on getting all the extra content into an "Alpha" build -- and we are there!
We are playing the games again and again, and then some more... and then again, tweaking and balancing and making sure that we cram as much fun into each of the games as we can before launching in the fall.
We've been showing the game behind closed doors and conducting lots of user testing. We've been really impressed at how quickly people of all ages are captivated by the game as soon as they pick up the PlayStation Move motion controller.
The experience is extremely intuitive. There are no special gestures to learn like in some motion control games, you simply interact with the objects...
