128w ago - HandCircus Founder Simon Oliver has posted up a video today of The Tale of Okabu, which he also confirms is coming soon to PlayStation Network.
To quote: We're slightly over-excited about the upcoming release of our brand-new PS3 title Okabu.

For the last two years we have been beavering away creating a brand new world and an all-new adventure, Okabu, that will be coming to exclusively to PSN in the coming months.

157w ago - Today Sony Producer Daimion Pinnock has confirmed that Dead Nation on PSN will be receiving online voice chat soon!
To quote: We know some Dead Nation online co-op players have requested voice chat functionality.
I'm here to tell you that we've listened to the fans and are taking steps to add voice chat for online co-op in the near future. To reiterate this point, here's a note from the team at Housemarque:
We know some of you are frustrated by the lack of voice chat support in Dead Nation's online co-op mode. We realize many players have been very eager to join up and start taking care of the zombie nation and we greatly appreciate the continued support.

We at Housemarque put our hearts and souls into the development of our games with...
