100°
177w 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.
 

Hothead Games Confirms The Baconing Hits PSN Play August 30th

180w ago - Hothead Games Producer Mike Inglehart has confirmed today that The Baconing is hitting PSN Play on August 30, 2011.

To quote: I am really excited to be able to share some insight on our exciting and meaty game [Register or Login to view links] coming out August 30th, 2011 as part of the PSN Play promotion, which runs until September 19th!

I have been lucky enough to work in the industry for over 11 years now but never did I imagine working on a game with an epic title like The Baconing! I mean, everyone loves bacon and now the fan favorite food has made its way into gaming.

The Baconing is an action RPG which stars everyone's favorite Vanquisher of Evil, DeathSpank. The story revolves around DeathSpank wearing all six Thongs of Virtue which unfortunately summons an evil version of himself in the AntiSpank.

Now our hero must seek out the Fires of Bacon and burn five of the Thongs, which will allow him to weaken and defeat the evil giant, bringing peace back to Spanktopia.

The one thing I really enjoyed about working on The Baconing is that the game does not take itself too seriously. We had a ton of laughs creating characters, quests and in the studios during the voice recordings.

Video: Tozai Games Confirms Spelunker HD Hits PSN Tomorrow

50°
181w ago - Tozai Games Director/Producer Brett Ballow has confirmed that Spelunker HD hits the European PSN Store tomorrow alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: Good news my fellow Spelunkers of SCEE territories - the wait is over! It's time to charge up your headlamps and push your cave exploring tendencies to all new heights... er, depths: Spelunker HD is coming to the PlayStation Store tomorrow.

Throughout your arduous adventure you will encounter all the wicked elements of Timothy Martin's original 1983 masterpiece, but with so many newly concocted ways to die it may feel a bit like a devilish set-up... a cave of untold riches guarded by more pits, tricks, traps and more enemies than are stars in the night sky.

But the only stars you'll be seeing for weeks will be the ones circling your head as you run, jump, blast and scratch your way ever deeper towards the 100,000 meter finale. The 100 newly devised caverns may be set in 10 brand new high definition environments, but are just as behemoth in size and complexity as you remember and expect. And getting to the bottom is only half the battle.





But that's not the only catch; [Register or Login to view links], reputedly the weakest...
 

Sony Confirms NTSC-J and NTSC-U PSOne Classics Hitting EU PSN

250°
182w ago - Today SCEE's Ross McGrath of the Sony PlayStation Store Team has confirmed that NTSC-J and NTSC-U PSOne Classics are being prepared to hit the European PSN Store.

To quote: I am very pleased to confirm that US and Japanese PSone emulations are being prepared for release on the SCEE PlayStation Stores.

While I cannot yet confirm dates or any of the titles in process at this time, there are a few that are already in process and you will start to see them publishing in the future.

What does this mean for you, the consumers?

Here are the key points:

• Publishers who own the rights to release PSone titles that were previously only available in the US and/or Japan will now be able to apply to have them released on the SCEE PlayStation Stores (providing they are rated by the appropriate ratings boards for each territory).

• All titles will be published 'as is', with either English or Japanese language game content where available.

• All titles will run at 60 Hz and you will need a 60 Hz capable display to play them properly.

This also means that if a PAL version of a title has been unable to pass QA in SCEE, but the NTSC version is already available on the PlayStation Store in SCEA or SCEJ, we can look at publishing...
