Video: Sony Announces Wheels of Destruction is Coming to PSN

100°
136w ago - Today Lead Designer Kerim Borchaev has announced alongside a video trailer that Wheels of Destruction is coming to PlayStation Network.

To quote: Few things are as universal as the lust to drive fast and destroy expensive machinery. Everyone likes driving and crushing things, so when given the green light, Gelid Games leaped at the creation of Wheels of Destruction.

A lot of inspiring games came to mind, and we wanted to make our mark on the industry with an interpretation that is near and dear to us.

Before we got anywhere, we had to pick a platform, and going PSN exclusive was an obvious choice for us. Sony's platform has become much easier to develop on, and the fact that we're able to self-publish goes a long way in retaining our mindshare over the game. We wanted to know that every bit of perfection and every flaw was of our own design.

Once we had our platform in mind, we began searching for an engine. After trying as many that came through our doors, we found our place with the Unreal Engine, thanks to its great graphics and smooth asset production pipeline. We wanted to make the most out of the tools we had at our disposal.

Our ideas were grand, with levels five times larger than what production suggested we'd be able to accomplish. We knew that a fine...

To quote: The day is approaching for you to finally get your hands on PlayStation Vita!

For some of you, that day is already here with the delivery of the First Edition Bundle. As we've discussed in several previous Blog posts, the connection between PS Vita and PS3 is one of the most compelling features that sets gaming on PS Vita apart.

Because we want all of you early PS Vita owners to check out the cross-platform gameplay experience, we're offering content on both platforms for one promotional price with two launch titles, Hustle Kings and WipEout 2048. Our friends at Capcom are also offering shared content for no additional cost with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Here's how it works:

•If you purchase Hustle Kings for PS Vita, you will get Hustle Kings on PS3 for free. If you already own Hustle Kings on PS3, you'll be able to download the PS Vita version for free.

•If you purchase WipEout 2048, you will be able to download WipEout 2048's DLC packs, WipEout HD and HD Fury for free when they launch on PS Vita later this spring (if you already own the PS3 versions)

136w ago - Creative Director Jenova Chen at ThatGameCompany has announced today that Journey will be taking its first steps on PSN this coming March.

To quote: As you may know from my recent tweet, the development of our latest PlayStation Network game, Journey, is finally complete. And today, we're very excited to announce the official release date for Journey.

You will be able to download it from the PlayStation Store for $14.99 starting March 13th, 2012. Three years ago, our last game, Flower, was part of the Spring Fever event on PSN, and this year Journey will kick off this year's Spring Fever.

Look for more information on the highlight games and sales of this year's Spring Fever event on the PlayStation.Blog in the coming weeks.

With each game we create, we want to bring something truly unique and authentic to the user. We want our players to experience something they have never felt before. Our first game for PSN was flOw in 2007, a meditative zen video game haiku.

We followed that in 2009 with Flower, our video game version of a poem about the tension between urban bustle and natural serenity. Journey, our third game, is an interactive parable, an anonymous online adventure to experience a person's life passage and their intersections with other's.
