This massive PlayStation Home redesign will launch with a number of new, free-to-play games, including:

164w ago - PlayStation Network Community Manager Morgan Haro has announced that starting today NFL fans can enjoy halftime savings on Sunday Ticket which has been dropped to $199.99.

To quote: It's been a great year for football; especially if you've got a PS3. Since the first game kicked off at the start of the season, PS3 users connected via PlayStation Network have been able to watch NFL Sunday Ticket right on their PS3 every Sunday.

That means every out-of-market Sunday game has been at the hands of subscribers across the country, delivered in gorgeous HD. But if you haven't subscribed yet and are looking at a great way to get more NFL in your life, listen up.

As of the PlayStation Store update later today, the NFL Sunday Ticket subscription for the remainder of the season will be $199.99, split into two easy payments of $99.99.

It's the perfect way to enjoy all the action of the NFL in high definition, with live multi-game scoreboards and field position trackers. Not to mention, you'll be able to access highlights, stats, standings, and schedules, as well as the Red Zone Channel.

Download the app free from the PlayStation Store or under the TV/Video Services column on the PS3 XMB in the My Channels section. Once downloaded, complete the subscription process within...

50°
164w ago - Aksys Games Director of Production Frank "Bo" DeWindt has announced that Fate / Extra hits the Sony PSP and PSPgo handheld consoles today.

To quote: Fate. Destiny. A pre-destined future. Call it what you will, but fans of the highly successful Type-Moon franchise will come flocking at the mere mention of the word.

To those not quite as familiar with the Fate series or all things Type-Moon, we'd like to present to you an excellent entry point into the universe in the form of the exclusive PSP title Fate/EXTRA!

In this role-playing game you'll assume the role of a male or female protagonist as you pair up with one of three mystical and mysterious servants to aide you on your quest.

Saber: A class known for its well-balanced abilities and its superior swordsmanship. While Saber may be short in stature at a diminutive 4'9", her strength and skill with a sword make her worthy of the Saber-class designation.

Archer: A class that specializes in the use of ranged weapons such as bows. An enigmatic warrior clad in a scarlet coat who possesses the ability to excel at weapons other than the bow...

Caster: A class that excels at magic-based combat due to their superior intelligence, though at the cost of being woefully inadequate...
 

Sucker Punch Announces InFamous: Festival of Blood Hits Tuesday

50°
165w ago - Sucker Punch Productions Community Manager Collin Moore has announced today that InFamous: Festival of Blood hits PSN this coming Tuesday.

To quote: InFamous: Festival of Blood will be available on the PlayStation Store in just a couple days: Tuesday, October 25th in North America for $9.99, and $7.99 for PlayStation Plus members (you can even pre-order now on the PlayStation Store).

Play it with the classic DualShock or try it out with PlayStation Move support!

Before you get your hands on the game, we had Animation Director Billy Harper and Marketing Director Ken Schramm pack their bags for a whirlwind three-day tour spanning 5,668 miles, two coasts, three cities, and over 20 interviews with press from North America and beyond. It was an amazing couple of days of sharing the latest adventure in the inFAMOUS universe.

We have been pretty quiet about Festival of Blood since we teased you with a clip revealing Bloody Mary at PAX. Since then we have been hard at work crafting this next adventure, adding in all the final details and finishing touches on this standalone game to make the perfect purchase right in time for Halloween.

This press tour allowed us to pull the curtain back and give one big preview before the game comes out next week. Billy and...
 

Video: Playbrains Announces Sideway: New York Only on PSN Now

50°
167w ago - Today Playbrains Studio Director Scott Simpson has made available some new video footage and announced that beginning now Sideway: New York is live only on PSN!

To quote: In Hollywood circles, there is a well-known tradition where Steven Spielberg and George Lucas will [Register or Login to view links] and go somewhere remote right about when they have a big movie opening.

They do this mostly for good luck, but also to avoid the press and ignore the grosses. Basically, they generally try to get their mind off of the project they've dedicated much of their recent lives to create.

I mention this because our adventure platformer Sideway: New York is all wrapped and done and will be available only on PSN as of today's PlayStation Store update. I also mention this because at this moment, a few of us here at the studio are out in Zimbabwe embarking on a new work project. (Oooh, I can just see the screaming blog headlines now: "Game Developer compares his game to Star Wars").





I mention this preamble principally because my beloved perfect record for responding to questions and comments on the PlayStation.Blog is (*sniff*) about to be sullied and...
