217w ago - Oddworld Inhabitants Co-founder & Creative Director Lorne Lanning has announced that two Oddworld titles will be hitting the PSone Classics section on PSN this week, as follows:
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe's Exodus PSone Classics are both available on the PlayStation Store for only $9.99 each starting Thursday, October 22.
It was only about six years ago that I told our agent at the time, "Larry, don't you get it!? Our classic Abe games are history. The systems that played them are gone and they aren't coming back.
Ours is a disposable medium and we don't have a Turner Classics channel." He looked at me with this defeated expression and said, "Dude, that's the most depressing thing I've ever heard you say." He believed me, and I too believed it at the time.
Six years later and I have to admit it's great being proved wrong.
We couldn't have been more thrilled when we learned that the PlayStation Network was willing to offer our classic Abe games to an entirely new generation of gamers. Finally, gamers who never got the chance to meet and play him when he first came out on the PSone system, will now get that chance to meet the guy who graced many magazine covers and proved the unlikely hero that captured people's hearts.
217w ago - Nobilis Product Manager Olivier Vermeille has revealed today that Trine will be hitting Sony's PSN this week for PlayStation 3.
To quote: I'm really happy to be able to tell you that it's coming to the US PlayStation Store this Thursday, October 22!
This long-expected innovative action / platform game that combines 2D gameplay with 3D graphics is almost here! Acclaimed by players throughout the world, Trine will be available for download Thursday on the PlayStation Network.
Three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evil and the player can at any time freely choose whoever is best suited for the upcoming challenge or puzzle.
Trine is balanced between action and puzzle solving sequences, which are just fantastic to play. Thanks to an extensive use of physics, you'll be able to solve puzzles in many different ways, whether you play alone by switching characters or alongside with a friend (up to 3 players simultaneously on the same system). Just take a peek at this trailer and you'll get a sense of what I'm talking about!
For those of you who are always on the hunt for PS3 Trophies, rest assured! I'm thrilled...
217w ago - Today Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has posted a reminder on the PlayStation Blog that this weekend those who play Uncharted 2: Among Thieves online still have a chance to win the Fortune Hunter Edition.
To quote: Don't forget! Win the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Fortune Hunter Edition by playing this weekend.
We mentioned earlier this week that you will get more chances to win the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Fortune Hunter Edition by playing online this weekend.
Well, the weekend is here and, just in case you forgot, we wanted to remind everyone that we'll be giving away another 30 Fortune Hunter Edition Friday through Sunday! If you haven't bought UNCHARTED 2 yet (is there someone who hasn't?) and want one of our extremely limited edition Fortune Hunter Editions, then this may be a pretty good reason to give in.
We'll be randomly drawing names to determine the winners. Good luck and see you online!
217w ago - The team behind Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising have stated that DLC will be coming to the PS3, XBox 360 and PC in a matter of weeks for the game.
Codemasters' Sion Lenton, Exec Producer, revealed the following in an interview with Telegraph, to quote:
"We've got some very ambitious plans with DLC - our first pack is coming up in a matter of weeks. We'll also have title updates coming up because once the game's out there, we'll need to get feedback from the people who are playing it, and if need be make a few adjustments and tweaks.
Our team are already prototyping all sorts of stuff to be released as DLC and we're really excited about it. It's a really different type of market now; I remember five or six years ago, you'd get a game, finish it, put it back on the shelf and that was it.
But now it's almost as though the game's release is just the beginning, really. Ours is a game that lends itself very well to expansion - there will be weapons packs, map packs - all sorts of things we can do to get our product out there."
