177w ago - Today Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray has announced on Sony's PlayStation Blog that Gravity Crash Portable for PSP and PSPgo is hitting PSN soon.
To quote: Well, it's finally here! Gravity Crash Portable is being released on July 20th for $9.99.
During the development of the PSP version, we made some changes based on feedback to the PS3 version. Things that you guys asked for, and things that we felt needed to be looked at. To tantalise you in anticipation here's a list of some of what has changed...
• We've added a third ship. An anti-gravity ship. When playing, if you let go of the analog stick you will no longer plunge to your death.
• We've increased the number of special weapon slots from 3 to 5.
• We've added a lot more weapon pickups throughout the levels.
• We've made the Primary Objectives more recognizable on the radar (via BIG FLASHING DOTS).
• We originally used the old-school concept of three lives, then Game Over. We have now removed that; if you get Game Over, you can start from where you left off.
• We completely re-wrote the "paint" aspect of the editor, to make it faster and cleverer in relation to holes.
• We've added a new game mode, Survivor mode, where...
185w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has unveiled the full Persona 3 Portable trailer video for Sony's PSP.
To quote: I come bearing gifts, and by "gifts" I of course mean the official full trailer for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable, Atlus's upcoming handheld RPG epic.
What's it full of? Why, WIN, of course, and lots of it! What other portable roleplaying game gives you dozens upon dozens upon dozens of hours of satisfying combat, character interaction, side-quests, and a riveting story?
Moreover, few handheld RPGs, if any, deliver the aural and visual impact of Persona 3 Portable, with its stunning world and character design, and a soundtrack courtesy of master composer Shoji Meguro.
For those of you who've never been properly exposed to Persona 3, allow me to pull back its long black trench coat to reveal a bit more about the concept of the Dark Hour. In the world of Persona 3 Portable, there is a hidden hour between the end of one day and the start of another.
It is imperceptible to most, save a select few. You're one of this gifted minority (of course you are) and in fact,...
186w ago - There have been countless PSP2 rumors in circulation, from forecasted features to the graphics chip, but according to MCVUK.com (linked above) it appears that analysts may be correct as the PlayStation Portable 2 is rumored to be Sony's big surprise at E3 2010.
To quote: "MCV has been informed of a significant increase in marketing spend at two key publishers for Q4 2010. At a time when the PSP is languishing in Western markets - and its most recent iteration, the PSPgo, is falling flat - it is being speculated that publishers are laying the ground for an offensive on a brand new iteration of Sony's handheld.
Another publisher has also told MCV that it is waiting on a specific announcement from the platform holder before it can reveal of its future PSP plans until, though it did allude to the ongoing development of several unnamed titles behind closed doors.
The PSP is currently in its sixth year on the market, and despite having undergone a number of revisions remains...
188w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has revealed a bonus for those who are planning to pre-order Persona 3 Portable for Sony's PSP console.
To quote: We would like to bring to your attention the below pre-order bonus for Persona 3 Portable (only at participating retailers, only while supplies last)
"What is it?" you ask? Why, it's a lovely collectible (and wearable, fortunately) cap modeled after the one worn by popular character Junpei Iori, Gekkoukan High School's bantering, jabbering class clown.
Not familiar with him? Or the game, perhaps? That's where this post comes in.
Persona 3's unique dichotomy of social sim and dungeon crawling elements shakes the genre to its core, offering a constantly refreshing blend of character development, sharp writing, a powerful narrative, and ultra fast-paced turn-based combat in the many varying levels of Tartarus.
In an interesting twist, the bonds you share with your...
