Droplitz for PlayStation 3 Drops in to PSN

50°
269w ago - Today Blitz Arcade Project Director Steve Stopps has announced that Droplitz (which just recently got Droplitz PS3 Trophies) for PlayStation 3 is now available on PSN.

To quote: I'm really excited as we've just released our new puzzler Droplitz on PlayStation Network. Why so excited?

Droplitz is one of those games. It was the brainchild of a Blitz staffer James Parker and from the very first prototype it had everyone hooked. From the first time I saw it I could always imagine people from all over the world playing Droplitz.

I've lost track of the amount of times we've been testing the game and before long gathered a small band of spectators...

To quote: The kind folks at developer Sidhe agreed to participate in the PSB's first-ever video interview using the PlayStation Eye. And considering the company resides down in New Zealand, it's just about the only way to get them talking in-person.

Shatter is like Arkanoid on steroids...and we mean that in the most positive way. Here, Managing Director Mario Wynands talks about the game's slick graphics, power-ups and unique push/pull gameplay that makes this PSN game the real deal.

And what do you think of the PS3 Video Chat format via the Eye? Drop a comment and let us know... it could be a great way to conduct interviews with folks from across the globe.
