65w ago - Sony's Andy Stewart of the PlayStation Store Team has announced the addition of more titles to their PS Store Retro Games PSN sale today!
To quote: Hello everybody. I hope you are all enjoying our current Retro Sale.
Just a quick update - I have been listening to all your comments and have got some more deals for you! See below for the full list of additions.
Now you will notice that Resident Evil 2 is on the list but be warned, this DOES NOT currently work on the PS Vita. We are aware of the issue and are trying to fix it - hopefully it will work on the PS Vita soon but I don't have an ETA yet.
Once the game has been fixed you will be able to re-download the game for PS Vita, but for now you can only purchase it through your PS3. Sorry to disappoint with this but I will see if we can replicate the offer once it is working for PS Vita - though I can't make any promises.
I recommend buying it now on the PS3 (if you have one) for the future to avoid disappoint on missing this sale opportunity.
These discounts will start on Wednesday 12th September once the weekly store update has happened. All offers will end on 19th September....
66w ago - Following up on their previous lookback, today Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton goes behind the PS One / PS2 Classics with the popular MediEvil PlayStation video game.
To quote: The second entry in our Behind the Classics series is a real lost gem - SCE Cambridge Studios' wild, wacky supernatural adventure MediEvil.
First released on PSOne back in 1998, it put you in the shoes of Sir Daniel Fortesque - an undead knight unwittingly reanimated by the evil sorcerer Zarok who embarks on a quest to liberate the kingdom of Gallowmere.
A sequel followed in 2000, with a PSP remake also popping up on PSP in 2005, however, it's the original game that remains most embedded in the memory.
With Sir Dan soon to enjoy a comeback of sorts as a playable character in PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale, we sat down with original designer Chris Sorrell to find out more about the game's development.
PlayStation.Blog: What was the original concept for the game? Did you draw inspiration from anywhere in particular for the game's look and feel?
Chris Sorrell, Game Designer, MediEvil: The first design proposal for the game had the working...

66w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has posted up news today of a 25% discount off a 12 month subscription for PlayStation Plus fans.
To quote: You may notice something a little different about the PlayStation Plus update this week. Yes, as some of you may have heard, Ross has moved on to pastures new.
I hope you'll all join me in wishing him well in all his future endeavours - we'll miss having him around! Ross 2.0 will be along soon enough, but in the meantime I've stepped into the breach and will be keeping you informed of the latest updates to your Plus service.

To celebrate this and after chatting to some of the PSN Community about it I thought it would be a good idea to get you some discounts on some classic PSOne games that I am sure you will all enjoy either at home on your PS3 or now on the move with your PS Vita.
However it is not just all PSOne games, we also have Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend on sale for the PS Vita and for you horse riding, guns blazing, cowboy fans we have all the Red Dead Redemption DLC. So get these deals before they ride off into the sunset.
These discounts will start on Wednesday 5th September once the weekly store update has happened.
