Video: Carnival Island PS3 with PlayStation Move from E3 2011

50°
148w ago - Magic Pixel Games President Mark Tsai has posted up a video today spotlighting Carnival Island on PS3 with PlayStation Move from E3 2011.

To quote: At E3, we were pleased to announce the game we've been building for PlayStation Move over the last several months with SCEA Santa Monica Studio: Carnival Island!

Carnival games are perfect for translation to motion control gaming - the gameplay is very physical, requiring rolling, throwing, flipping and tossing - actions which translate extremely well for the accuracy of the Move controller.

However, we've taken away the frustration, making the game feel very natural and accessible - something that anyone can pick-up and play. Carnival Island has something for everyone, and is a game that you can enjoy in your living room with up to four friends or family members. It allows side-by-side multiplayer, so you can elbow your family or friends during heated competitive play.





In single-player mode, the game takes the player through a journey of restoring magic to a forgotten carnival. As the player accomplishes challenges and goals, the world comes alive with pets, color and toys. All of the prizes you collect and unlock make a real difference; they add to the atmosphere...

148w ago - Ubisoft PR Coordinator Alex Monney has announced that Outland is now on PSN, and shared some Behind-the-Scenes Housemarque video footage on the title below.

To quote: The day has finally come and we are ecstatic to have released Outland on the PlayStation Network. Many of you first heard of this platformer/Ikaruga mash-up when we first announced it at our Digital Day event last year and got a deeper dive when PlayStation.Blog's Sid Shuman gave a quick preview from PAX East 2011.

The idea of the game is simple: you are following in the footsteps of an ancient hero looking to prevent the destruction of the world at the hands of the goddesses of chaos. However, mix in the polarity switching and you have one amazingly challenging game.

Housemarque, known for their work on Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD, has been receiving a ton of praise on Outland, including 1UP calling it "one of the best downloadable games this year". Let's take a deeper dive into the development of Outland:
