For those of you who might not know, Dungeon Defenders is a four-player co-operative Tower Defense action-RPG. You can create heroes from four distinct classes to defend the land of Etheria.

To quote: We're excited to announce a new program called "Only On PSN," which features brand new games that are exclusively available on PlayStation Network throughout October.

Every week starting tomorrow, October 4, you will find new titles, unique to PSN that are part of this program - games that you've likely read about, or seen during our showing at E3 2011.

We can't wait for you to get your hands on the Only On PSN games yourselves, so we're giving you a few special offers throughout the course of the program. First, to sweeten the deal, we'll be offering PlayStation Plus subscribers a 20% discount on each game during the first week of its availability.

Skyrim: The Elder Scrolls Saga Enters Its Fifth Round on PS3

133w ago - SCEE Contributing Editor Roland Fauster has announced today that Skyrim: The Elder Scrolls Saga is entering its fifth round on PS3, as follows:

Role-playing games have underpinned the history of computer games, even more so perhaps than the first-person shooters that reign today. Long before the first gamers fired at their virtual enemies with a mouse-click, lone disciples of the genre had already been wandering through text-based dungeons, which then formed the basis for increasingly complex game worlds.
