75w ago - Dust 514 Community Manager Phil Wang has announced that the Mercenary Pack arrives on PSN today and grants Beta Access this Thursday with details below, as follows:
Later this year, there will be an unprecedented level of combat in gaming raging across the entire EVE Universe, from the mighty capsuleers far above in Eve Online, to the relentless onslaught you and your squad will bring to bear against your enemies on countless planets in DUST 514.
The first, harrowing drumbeats of war started not long ago and have been increasing ever since during our beta tests. Until today, this has been of very limited scope while we've introduced some of the EVE Universe's most faithful players to planetary warfare and trickled in some of the earliest of adopters who have picked up their rifles and laid low the opposition.
But that all changes this weekend when we'll be opening the doors to thousands of new combatants through our beta events. There's still time to sign up over at our official Beta Web site to participate in this important, and early, testing period for the game.
Signing up for the beta and playing DUST 514 is completely free! But for those who want to try an assortment of the pay-for items, get guaranteed access to beta weekends,...

86w ago - Alawar Entertainment Product Manager Polina Belavskaya has announced today that free to play Treasures of Montezuma Blitz is now available on PS Vita with a gameplay video demo below.
To quote: PS Vita is the perfect platform for people on the go with short blocks of time to play games.
The first free-to-play game on the platform is Treasures of Montezuma Blitz, the newest game based on the popular Treasures of Montezuma franchise.
ToM has actually been around for years with its familiar match 3 gameplay, but each generation of the game has added new challenge and power-ups. This was one of the main things we wanted to ensure we hit with the PS Vita version. It had to be fresh and new, and most of all be fun.
A lot of people look at freemium or free-to-play games and think you have to spend money to be competitive and beat your friends. That's actually not the case with this game.
We built the game so it is actually really fun whether you're earning your power-ups by playing a lot and being rewarded in-game for your persistence, or if you are short on time and want the benefits of being a seasoned and dedicated player, you can spent a little to get a short-term power-up.
It's really the best of both worlds since it respects players that have...
