50°
149w 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:

Rage from iD Software for PlayStation 3: E3 2011 Hands-On

100°
149w ago - Correspondent Andy Burt has shared hands-on details from E3 2011 today on iD Software's Rage for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: When id Software releases a new IP, it's more than a big deal – it's an event. The veteran development studio behind classics such as Doom and Quake is preparing to unleash its next big shooter, Rage, this October. And at E3 2011, the storied studio presented a wildly diverse group of missions from the post-apocalyptic adventure to try out on the PS3 version of the game.

First things first: Rage looks fantastic. As id Software's graphics guru John Carmack recently stated on Twitter, Rage may very well surprise gamers who expect the PS3 version to play second-fiddle to the PC version.

Rage is one of the sharpest-looking games I've seen in a long time, with the developer's new id Tech 5 engine really stealing the show. Walking around Rage's post-apocalyptic wasteland should seem like a gloomy experience, but the game's slick visuals and smooth-as-butter animations and framerate incite awe more than anything else.

Throughout Rage's expansive single-player environments, players can talk to many...
