Below are the details, as follows: With winter finally coming to an end, it's time to celebrate the changing of the seasons with our annual Spring Fever promotion on PlayStation Network!
We're championing independent developers this year, with a new indie title coming each week. You may have noticed during GDC that we are focusing on bringing the best independent games to PSN, and we're happy to reinforce our dedication to indie developers with this year's Spring Fever.
Each week during the month of April, we will bring a gaming experience from noteworthy independent developers, such as DrinkBox Studios and Frima Studio. Additionally, each title features Cross-Buy functionality for PS3 and PS Vita, and PlayStation Plus members get at least 20% off each title during launch week!
Spring Fever also offers sales on a number of games and add-ons from popular franchises each week, as well as some great deals on movies themed to each week's sale, which you'll learn more about in the PlayStation Store Update posts each Tuesday.

Evergreen Avenue takes place in a world that was once governed by magic - where spirits and men once peacefully coexisted.

Players will choose between a male or female protagonist, each with their own unique backstory and traits, as they set out to impress the seven spirits who have come to judge them. The unselected character will become your rival, and you will...
35w ago - Today Sony Designer Vincent Napoli at Santa Monica has shared a video announcing that the God of War: Ascension update brings new PS3 features and fixes with details below.
To quote: Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to run their Blades through my poor little champion’s skull every night in God of War: Ascension‘s brutal multiplayer mode. After a long day of work, there is definitely something to be said about gutting and impaling people into the wee hours of the morning!
One of primary reasons we’ve been relatively quiet in the last week regarding support and DLC updates is because we’ve been heads down, working on an update which expands our God of War: Ascension multiplayer experience and addresses some key issues our community has helped us identify and diagnose. There are lots of gameplay developments coming down the pipeline, and today we’ll be sharing some of the stuff that’s moved into our final testing and tuning phase.

37w ago - Lukewarm Media Founder / Game Director Ashton Andersen has announced today alongside a video that Primal Carnage: Genesis is bringing dinosaurs to PS4.
To quote: At some point, everyone has wondered about what it was like to walk among the dinosaurs. We were wondering that for ourselves, so we've set out to develop Primal Carnage: Genesis.
What better way is there to realize that dream than a new generation of PlayStation hardware to drive an incredible immersive experience?
From towering behemoths like the brachiosaurus and the tyrannosaurus rex to smaller creatures like the velociraptor and the dilophosaurus, there is no doubt that there is something magical about the creatures of the prehistoric world. In order to capture that magic in real time, we used Unreal Engine 4 as our software platform of choice.
