SOE Confirms PayDay: The Heist to Launch on PSN This Month

100°
133w ago - Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) Executive Director of Business Development Chris Sturr has confirmed today that Payday: The Heist is set to launch later this month on PSN.

To quote: Word on the street is that to pull off the biggest score, a heist must be planned and outlined to the very last detail with perfect team members, unbeatable weapons and unrecognizable disguises.

That being said, SOE & OVERKILL Software need a little more time to assemble the ideal squad and attack strategy for our highly anticipated adrenaline-pumping first person shooter, PAYDAY: The Heist.

With this in mind, SOE and the talented OVERKILL team have decided to push PAYDAY's official launch day to later in October, ensuring the overall game quality and potential score for all heist team members.

Not a PAYDAY crew member yet and hoping to get in on the loot? SOE has extended PRE-ORDERS - which have been excellent to date - to gather an even larger body of potential crew to co-operate with at launch!

For our established crew members, PAYDAY will still be awarded to those who purchased all four PSN titles in our inaugural PlayStation Network PLAY event, according to the terms of that program.

Your continued loyalty and...

To quote: What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words "Chrono Trigger?" I'm sure a lot of things, but I bet the first thing on your mind right now is "When can I get it?"

We're happy to confirm that Chrono Trigger is coming to the PSN in North America on October 4th. That's right- in just a few days, you'll be able to visit (or re-visit, as I'm sure is the case for many of you) one of the most hilarious and unique casts of characters ever assembled in an RPG:

Crono: The spiky-haired, stoic protagonist who finds himself wrapped up in events beyond his control. He's pretty good with a katana and doesn't run from a fight.

Marle: The requisite princess, but she's no ordinary princess. How many princesses do you know that wield a crossbow?

Lucca: Chrono's best friend since they were little kids. Oh, and she's a supergenius who invents things such as the teleporter that starts your journey through time.

Frog: A knight from the middle ages, Frog is a man who has been cursed and turned into a giant anthropomorphic...
 

Sony Confirms AT&T Mobility Ruling Spurred New PSN TOS Change

800°
134w ago - Last week we reported that the PSN Terms were updated followed by how to Opt-Out of the new Class Action waiver, and today Sony confirms to CNN (linked above) that the AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion (PDF) US Supreme Court ruling earlier this year spurred the recent PlayStation Network TOS change.

To quote: "Sony said this week that the new terms-of-service changes were made, as some analysts suspected, in response to a Supreme Court decision in April. In that case, AT&T Mobility was permitted to include and enforce a clause in employment contracts that bars workers from bringing class-action suits.

"The Supreme Court recently ruled in the AT&T case that language like this is enforceable," a spokeswoman for Sony's PlayStation unit wrote in an e-mail.

"The updated language in the TOS is designed to benefit both the consumer and the company by ensuring that there is adequate time and procedures to resolve disputes."

Like AT&T, Sony prefers...

136w ago - Today Ubisoft PR Coordinator Alex Monney has confirmed that From Dust will be coming to PSN on September 27, 2011 with details below!

To quote: The wait to experience Eric Chahi's award-winning strategy game, From Dust is almost over. We're happy to announce that From Dust will be coming to the PlayStation Network on September 27th.

In a little less than three weeks, players will get a chance to experience the winner of Game Critic's Awards Best Strategy Game of E3 and what Game Informer called "a breath of fresh air."

From Dust puts players in control of The Breath, a mysterious power used by a primitive tribe to battle against the forces of nature.

Players will use this power to help the tribe regain the knowledge of their ancestors. However, regaining this knowledge won't be an easy task for players as the world of From Dust hosts volatile natural elements, including volcano eruptions and tidal waves.

From Dust will be available on the PlayStation Network on September 27th for $14.99.
