89w 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.

89w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN Game Store and PS Plus updates today, as follows:
Hi everyone - a long intro from me today, lots of housekeeping and new things to tell you about, but let's kick off with the third title in the PLAY promotion - Bloodrayne: Betrayal launches today.
The original video game femme fatale, Rayne, has returned to battle and feed in a brand new hack 'n slash adventure. Slay ghastly enemies as Rayne, the sexy dhampir with superhuman strength, speed, and agility, recruited by the vampire hunting Brimstone Society for one last mission.
The target is a lavish, yet sinister ball in a secluded castle with plenty of dark and gruesome surprises. With the help of a mysterious friend, and members of Brimstone, Rayne must infiltrate the manor, take out the fiendish horde, and stop an evil master plot once and for all.
Bloodrayne: Betrayal is available this week in all locales except for New Zealand (Majesco are finalising the OFLC rating for this title in NZ and we will be able to bring it to you next week).
Also, Italian consumers can this week begin to take part in the PLAY promotion - Street Fighter III: Third Strike, The Baconing and Bloodrayne: Betrayal are all launching on the...

90w ago - Today PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen has outlined the PlayStation Plus September 2011 offers for subscribers, as follows:
Before we get to what's coming to PlayStation Plus, we wanted to let you know that starting today, we're making a slight change to how we communicate PlayStation Plus updates.
Instead of posting twice per month on what's coming to Plus, we're going to be making one post that gives an overview of all the content that's hitting Plus in that particular month.
So today's post will cover content coming in September, and the next post will hit in the first Monday of October. Of course, with every week's Store Update post, you'll know what's going on the Store for Plus on that week.
Now to the good stuff! We've got some great content this month coming free to Plus subscribers including PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies, the furious shoot-em-up Astro Tripper, and the final game in the SEGA Genesis Collection, Altered Beast. The value of all three of these titles adds up to more than a $24 savings, which doesn't include the additional minis and PSone Classics you'll get this month too.
This month also marks a special occasion as we're celebrating the Resident Evil 15th Anniversary with PSone Classics: Resident Evil Director's Cut, Resident Evil...
