Video: Overkill Software Unveils Payday: The Heist for PS3

50°
150w ago - Today Overkill Software CEO Bo Andersson has shared a video and details on Payday: The Heist which is coming soon to PS3 via PlayStation Network.

To quote: Hollywood heist movies are, quite simply put, awesome. The high-stakes hits, epic firefights and scene stealing showdowns make for some of the most adrenaline-pumping excitement on the silver screen.

But these sort of over-the-top crime capers are not exactly what you would call "legal," so we here at OVERKILL Software came up with a solution for all you fans out there that want to take up arms and take down a big hit ... PAYDAY: The Heist.

PAYDAY: The Heist is an action-filled first person shooter for the PlayStation Network that lets you take on the role of a hardened career criminal executing intense, dynamic heists in constant pursuit of the next "big score".

Navigate diverse urban settings with three partners in crime – controlled by either AI or your best buddies in co-op multiplayer – and load out with an array of weaponry and equipment as you launch a spectacular crime spree through six high-stake heists, including banks robberies, prisoner extractions and armored car hijackings.

Whether you're blowing the roof off a building to steal a safe with a helicopter or emptying the vault at...
 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation DLC Comes to PS3 on June 10

250°
150w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation DLC is coming to PS3 on June 10, 2011.

To quote: Hopefully everybody enjoyed the double XP period for Call of Duty: Black Ops in May - neither Treyarch nor Activision wanted to see any of the PS3 fans miss out just because of the technical issues.

Now the next round of Black Ops action is locked and loaded: the long-awaited Escalation DLC pack will be available in the PlayStation Store on Friday, June 10th.

Escalation features five big chunks of content - four multiplayer maps and one star-studded Zombies experience unlike any other. For fans of competitive combat, your new battlegrounds await:

• HOTEL takes the sunny splendor of a luxirous Cuban casino resort and turns it into a bullet-riddled war zone. Details like the blown casino safe and poolside bar offer some unusual cover for run-and-gunners, but thanks to the high vantage points at opposite ends, it's also a great map for snipers.

• Why not visit the ZOO? The big cats and deadly reptiles left this abandoned Russian animal park long ago, but the overgrown, dilapidated facility still plays host to the...

FreeDroid Classic PS3 Homebrew Game is Released

100°
150w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer mc_ has released a PS3 homebrew game dubbed FreeDroid Classic, which is a clone of the game "Paradroid" which was released on Commodore 64 in 1985.

Download: FreeDroid.pkg / FreeDroid.GeoHot.pkg / GIT

In this game, you control a robot located within an interstellar spaceship consisting of several decks connected by elevators.

The aim of the game is to destroy all enemy robots by either shooting them or seizing control over them by creating connections in a short subgame of electric circuits.

To quote: "I've been working for a while on porting Freedroid Classic to SDL_PSL1GHT, and now
I think it works well enough to release some packages.

Freedroid is an open-source port of Andrew Braybrook's brillant C64 game Paradroid. This is the "Classic" variant, which actually plays like the original, not the "RPG" which is like a completely different game."

200°
150w ago - Zipper Interactive Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has welcomed fans back to SOCOM 4 on the PS3 today and announced they are issuing free maps and weapons to PlayStation Plus users.

To quote: We're very happy today to announce that SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs is now offering free maps and weapons to all PS Plus users!

You might remember that we gave away the classic SOCOM map "Abandoned" and a couple of exclusive shotguns as an incentive to pre-order the game through GameStop. All PlayStation Plus users can now download "Abandoned" and the shotguns free for the next month!

For those of you without Plus yet, don't worry-your time will come shortly. Recall the blog announcement a couple weeks back announcing that, as a token of appreciation, the PlayStation Network will be giving all users 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership, coming soon. After a month of PlayStation Plus availability, "Abandoned" and the shotguns will continue to be available for SOCOM Pro members.

But that's not all. When we announced SOCOM Pro shortly before SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs hit stores, we promised that we'd be delivering the oft-requested M16 and AK-47 shortly after release. We're happy today to not only say that they're almost here, but that they're being...
