50°
279w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared another Comic-Con 2009 video entitled Castle Crashers coming to PSN.

To quote: Hidden amongst the madness of the Comic-Con 2009 show floor was a gem. Castle Crashers, a game that some hoped would eventually come to PS3, is finally headed our way.

If you're unfamiliar, it's a really clever downloadable co-op action game that utilizes some cool RPG elements for great results. And it was officially announced for PSN at Comic-Con.

We cornered the kind folks at The Behemoth for a little back and forth, so take a look at the video to find out why you need to keep your eye out for Castle Crashers.

And get to know these guys because they promised to come back on the Blog when they have even more to talk about.

Touchscreen VAIOs for Fall, PlayStation Network Support Coming

50°
279w ago - According ot a recent [Register or Login to view links] with Mike Abary, the company's senior vice-president, they have some new Sony VAIO laptops in the works.

These new notebooks will be ready for market as early as this fall and the plan is to equip them with touchscreen displays.

It's unclear whether they will take on the full convertible tablet PC configuration or if they will just be regular laptops with touchscreens, but you'll be tapping on that display in a few short months.

To quote: Perhaps even more interesting is that Sony plans on integrating the PlayStation Network into the Sony VAIO line.

Using the PSN, gamers are able to download a variety of gaming and entertainment content on the PS3 and PSP, so it's natural to extend this service to the PC market as well.

Abary says the initial focus for the VAIO PSN will be on movies and TV shows, but casual games may also find their way in there as well. Integration with Sony e-book reader devices may also be in the works.
 

Hustle Kings - The King of Pool Games for PlayStation 3

279w ago - Today the Technology Director for VooFoo Studios Mark Williams has introduced Hustle Kings for PSN and PS3.

To quote: We really wanted to make sure Hustle Kings was something special right from the start, and the response from the unveiling at E3 has exceeded all of our initial expectations.

Everyone who has seen and played Hustle Kings so far has been incredibly impressed, and one of the things that many people have commented on is how brilliantly the AI plays.

We have such a comprehensive selection of online and multiplayer game modes in Hustle Kings, I was keen to ensure that our single player career campaign was just as challenging and enjoyable.

I initially sat down and played a lot of other pool and snooker games, and it really struck me as to how tiresome and predictable the AI generally was. I found myself wanting to skip past the shots played by my computer controlled opponent as they just weren't fun to watch. Hustle Kings needed something different, I thought, we needed to make our AI both challenging and entertaining.


Pool, and snooker probably even more so, are not games simply about potting balls. When lining up to pot a ball, you ideally want to leave the cue ball in a position that makes your next shot easier. Conversely, if you're...
