Gran Turismo 5 Slated for Summer 2010, PS3 Demo Next Week

700°
251w ago - During a short demo presentation of Gran Turismo 5 earlier this week, SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda re-confirmed the March 2010 GT5 PS3 release for Japan.

Without getting too specific, he then revealed that Sony was eying a vague "Summer 2010" release, which hopefully means we'll see it before leaves start falling off trees next year.

However, those seeking to get their hands on Gran Turismo 5 sooner will find a PS3 demo on PlayStation Network next week.

To quote: "Interestingly, Hinojosa-Miranda had mentioned to me that he was traveling the U.S. in the coming week to photograph cars for Polyphony's reference material. With nearly 1,000 cars in the game, it's not that big of a stretch to think that they may still be working to flesh out the game's roster.

And while he wouldn't confirm how far along they were towards completing Gran Turismo 5 development, he did say this work wasn't necessarily for the current game.

"It's not for Gran Turismo 5 or a DLC release," he said, clarifying that it's constantly building on its reference material archives. After years of development and multiple Gran Turismo titles, how else do you think it's filling those garages but with non-stop research?

On the subject of DLC for the title, he said...

PlayStation 3 demand was at an all time high with the system selling more than 440,000 units for the week ending 11/29/09."
 

Killzone for PS2 Turns Five - Celebrate with Double XP Weekend

250°
253w ago - Guerrilla Games Lead Online Game Designer Eric Boltjes has announced that in celebration of Killzone for PS2 turning five a Double XP weekend is in order, as follows:

November 26 will be a very special day for all of us here at [Register or Login to view links]. On that day, exactly five years ago, the very first Killzone title for PlayStation 2 hit the shelves in Europe.

Sure, the game had already been released in the US three weeks prior, but hey... Guerrilla is based in the Netherlands. We commemorate the 26th because that's the date that we were finally able to see the fruits of our labor in Dutch stores.

Of course, it would be a shame to leave this occasion unmarked - and I'm not talking about the champagne and strange Dutch snacks we'll undoubtedly be having at the studio. We also want to celebrate it with you, the fans. After all, the Killzone brand wouldn't be where it is today without your support. So here's what we have in store for you over the next few days:

Looking back at Killzone 1
Later this week on [Register or Login to view links], Seb "Motherh" Downie and I are going to play through the first Killzone game for you. We'll be commenting on our favorite sections and wallowing in beer-induced nostalgia.

Peggle PS3 fans, I bring you the double-shot of good news that not only is Peggle available this week, but Peggle Nights will also be available as additional downloadable content.

Coming to Sony's PSN this Week: Bubble Trubble PSP Mini

50°
255w ago - Today Creat Studios Director of Business Development Scott Hyman has announced that Bubble Trubble PSP Mini is coming to Sony's PlaySTation Network this week.

To quote: This is Scott Hyman, Director of Business Development at Creat Studios along with Jason Benham, Producer and Creator of Bubble Trubble, our new PSP Mini game. Bubble Trubble will be available for download on the PlayStation Store tomorrow, November 12 for $4.99.

Almost everyone loves puzzle games, but the "Match 3 colors" concept has become so tired that we just had to tuck in into bed and put it sleep. On a quest to create a new color-matching challenge, Jason was inspired to develop a new game where bubbles of the same color fuse together into one upon contact, and grow, grow, grow until they pop.

As bubbles grow, on-screen space gets more and more crowded. If the bubbles don't expand enough to pop, all that room gets filled and the game ends. However, if enough like-colored bubbles are combined, they burst with points, bonuses and much more on-screen space to keep on playing.

Bubble Trubble is a single-player game with two modes of gameplay:

• Survival Mode allows players achieve the highest score by matching and popping the increasingly faster onslaught of colored bubble clusters....
