Zen Studios Confirms CastleStorm is Out Today on PS3 and PS Vita

23w ago - Zen Studios Community Manager Bobby Loertscher confirmed that CastleStorm is out today on PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: If you like building castles, destroying castles, knights, vikings, war, weapons, spells, troops, multiplayer, PS3, PS Vita, cross buy, well... CastleStorm is your game! CastleStorm launches today for both PS3 and PS Vita.

For those of you getting ready to play later today, we thought it would be nice to give you some tips on using the ballista, the primary weapon mounted just above your castle's gate.

Starting out, you'll utilize the low-powered, quick-spawning javelin, while the vikings fire harpoons. As the game progresses, you'll unlock more projectiles for your arsenal and upgrade these with gold you earn during missions.

The javelins and harpoons have the shortest regeneration period and will be your best asset in early levels. Getting five kills at once activates a shooting frenzy, which means you can shoot all projectiles in rapid succession for a few seconds. No regeneration period means you can do a lot of damage in a short amount of time, so don't hesitate to fire away.

While javelins are meant for targeting specific enemies on the ground, the Knights' Apple Grenade can either be used to take out a cluster of oncoming enemies,...

23w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared details today on cleaning up with Dustforce for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

To quote: Sprint, leap, and clean towards victory. Dustforce celebrates precision platforming, and embraces its 2D roots by spritzing the whole experience with colorful characters and a grooving anime twist. In Dustforce, players gun for the best time and most complete run through more than 50 stages.

Originally developed by a small indie team for the PC crowd, Capcom is bringing Dustforce to PS3 and PS Vita. All the charm and addictive play of the PC version returns, along with online multiplayer (ranked and private), shiny Trophies, and cross save support. Now the PlayStation community can train to become the greatest of ninja janitors the world has ever known.

The Capcom crew brought Dustforce by for Justin and me to play. Listen to our interview with them below, then read on for our full impressions.

Dustforce gives players room to breathe. At the start, stages are short, simple, and teach newcomers how to successfully navigate obstacles and clean up the most dust to achieve high scores. Jumps are cozy, and the levels themselves are designed to pull the player into a flow.

One run through a stage reveals the layout and enemy placement,...

The beloved franchise will also launch on the PS3 and PS Vita systems, making PlayStation your home for baseball.

With a new generation of consoles comes a new face for MLB The Show. Last year, you - the fan - voted on which superstar should be on the cover, and chose superstar Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates. With this year's iteration of The Show, we did something that's never been done in video game history - we let the ball players vote.

Our cover athlete was chosen by his fellow players, by the opponents who compete against him day in and day out. Every player in the big leagues had the opportunity to nominate one player for this year's cover, and earlier tonight at the 2013 Player's Choice Awards on the MLB Network, the winner was revealed.

We're proud to announce that eight-time All-Star, 2012 American League Most Valuable Player, 2012 American League Triple-Crown...
 

Rumor: PS Vita Games Activated Using ReActPSN via PlayStation 3

24w ago - Following up on the previous update, today dantezteam Tweeted a picture of what appears to be a way to activate full and demo PS Vita games using ReActPSN on a PS3 console running Custom Firmware.

Once activated using a PS3 on CFW and ReactPSN, the PlayStation Vita games are then transferred to Sony's PS Vita handheld console.

Currently there are no clear instructions or guide beyond the team stating "pkg-ps3-react-psvita-play" unfortunately so this is being considered a rumor until additional details surface.

Update: Digging into this it was an oversight in how the Brazilian PSN store worked. There was bug in that allow basically someone with PSN+ to keep their games without needing to be PSN+ member anymore.

Sadly, it been fixed, the outcry over it on twitter was that a lot of scene people knew and keep it secret not even informing those in Brazil regarding the bug or mistake by Sony's PSN store management.
