86w ago - Today ThatGameCompany co-founder Jenova Chen has announced that Journey will be hitting PSN during Spring of 2012, with the details as follows:
First of all I would like to thank you for your support during the closed beta for our upcoming game Journey. It was a great success!
For the past few months, we kept getting asked about Journey's release date. Yes, we haven't said anything about our release in a while mainly because we really couldn't tell. And we don't want to throw out a date that we are not sure about, and later disappoint our players.
Fortunately, the online beta went very well, and our continued playtests have given us great feedback on the work we have left to complete. While there is still a ton of care and polish needed, we can't wait to finally deliver Journey, TGC's take on an online adventure game.
Like all our games, Journey is an experiment. In the end, it's what you think that matters. We are happy to announce Journey will be released Spring 2012, so you can experience the adventure for yourself.

To quote: Many of you have been following me over the last year looking for the latest details on all of our games.
This week, you may have also been listening into what we have happening on our Facebook and Twitter for news coming out of the Tokyo Game Show for big fan-favorite series like Tekken, Soulcalibur, Ace Combat and even the upcoming action-epic, Dark Souls.
While there's plenty of news flying about for all of our biggest titles, we wanted the PlayStation community to be among the first to get the scoop on the latest entry in a series that's dear to all of our hearts, and one that features the tiniest of heroes.
Fresh from Tokyo Game Show, Namco Bandai has just announced that Katamari Damacy (working title) will be arriving soon for the PS Vita! Check out the fresh trailer above that we wanted to roll out to the fans here in North America.

One of the coolest new features is the ability to use the rear touch pad...

88w ago - Q-Games President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has revealed today alongside a video from TGS 2011 that PixelJunk Lifelike is now becoming PixelJunk 4am.
To quote: So here we are creeping up onto yet another Tokyo Game Show and we have a big announcement to make... and an unusual one at that!
We are announcing a name change - I'm sure many of you have seen information about PixelJunk Lifelike over the past year or so, including some live demo performances we did during E3, and a few of you might have noticed how much the core concept of Lifelike expanded and shifted since it was first announced as we explored more and more ideas.
Well, after long deliberation we are changing the name to "PixelJunk 4am" to better match the atmosphere we are trying to create. And for more information about that, I have asked some questions and translated Baiyon's answers for you:
Why the name change?
Baiyon: PixelJunk Lifelike was originally conceived as an extension of the PixelJunk Eden world. Our idea was to create a kind of living speaker for people to play their music through, using natural imagery and taking strong visual...
