138w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared details on the upcoming PS3 title Combat Wings- complete with PlayStation Move support below!

To quote: Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII lands on PS3 this November with aerial combat campaigns set amidst the bloodiest air battles of World War II.

Not long ago, I tried out a pre-release version of the game under the watchful eye of Creative Director Jakub Majewski, focusing on the game's use of the PlayStation Move motion controller.

Before I grabbed the stick for a test flight, I was curious what made Majewski want to support PlayStation Move in the first place – WWII air combat isn't exactly a genre that leaps into my mind when I ponder the potential of motion-controlled gaming.

"Move makes this game better," Majewski said with conviction. "It's a much more natural form of steering than using an analog stick and it makes a huge difference to the gameplay.

138w ago - Boolat Games CEO Alexander Chigorin has confirmed today that 4 Elements HD will be hitting PSN Tuesday complete with PlayStation Move support and has shared a video trailer below.

To quote: I'm happy to share that Boolat Games has partnered with Playrix Entertainment to bring 4 Elements HD - packed with of PS3-exclusive content - to the PlayStation Store on August 30th.

Exciting news! The story takes place in a vast and ancient kingdom where evil forces have corrupted the balance between the four elements causing the altar of life to run dry. You have to unlock four ancient books of magic, collect 16 mysterious cards and restore this kingdom to life.

Here are few things you'll appreciate about 4 Elements HD. Imagine the addictive Matching gameplay where you freely draw the chains of same-colored pieces instead of just moving one piece next to another.





It feels and plays like an arcade game and it works great on PS3! We've added explosive bonuses, spectacular visual effects in full HD resolution, and intuitive controls using DualShock 3 or PlayStation Move.

Probably some of you saw or even tried the original game, but 4 Elements HD is...
