149w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Aryeh Loeb has introduced the Killzone 3 PS3 Retro Map Pack today, which is free to all who pre-order the Killzone 3 standard or Helghast Editions.
To quote: Ever find yourself longing for the good old days of the year 2359, when the invasion of Helghan had just gotten underway and you were fighting a desperate bloody battle over every inch of its capital city?
That's perfectly understandable - why, we all do sometimes. But now there's the Killzone 3 Retro Map Pack, which lets you relive those glorious multiplayer battles in the market streets and canals of Pyrrhus!
The Retro Map Pack can be purchased from the PlayStation Network, however as we announced back in October of last year, the Retro Map Pack is available for FREE to anyone who pre-orders either the Killzone 3 standard or Helghast Editions at participating retailers.
The Retro Map Pack consists of two classic Killzone 2 multiplayer maps, thoroughly updated and reworked for Killzone 3's multiplayer mode. Check out the details below:

156w ago - Marketing and PR Coordinator Bill Fryer at Creat Studios has made available a video introducing Mushroom Wars: Online for PSN today.
To quote: I'm sure many of you are very familiar with our much-loved PSN title, Mushroom Wars, and I am very pleased to announce today that fans of Mushroom Wars will soon get the features they've been begging for in our newest DLC pack, Mushroom Wars Online!
The online add-on will be available for download on 15 December in Europe.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Mushroom Wars is a fast-paced and accessible RTS, with a quaint, anime-inspired visual style in which you send your cute armies into battle, upgrade your mushroom bases, improve your weaponry and fight skirmishes in close-quarter maps.
While the title Mushroom Wars: Online ruins the surprise of the best new feature in this add-on, it certainly won't ruin your enjoyment as you slay opponents in our 4-person online multiplayer mode. You think that's awesome? We've also thrown in local multiplayer support for up to four players, but that's not all.
Enjoy custom matches against online friends for training and entertainment, or watch other players battle from the sidelines to hone your strategic skills when...
156w ago - Gamelion Producer Wojciech Wronowski has introduced I Must Run for PlayStation Network today alongside a video trailer of the PS3 and PSP title.
To quote: The Gamelion team is proud to announce the I Must Run! release date and to share exclusive in-game footage and screenshots. The game will go live worldwide on PS3/PSP minis on 15 December.
If you are new to I Must Run! and you haven't yet seen a comic teaser, you can catch up at www.imustrun.com. The story is quite simple: a Marine ends up in jail after a street fight in which the city mayor's son dies. To avenge the death, the Marine's girlfriend is kidnapped and he is given 24 hours to turn himself in before she is killed.
Our aim was to create a short comic novel with a reference to old-school, B movie trailers. The entire movie was developed by one artist over 2 ½ weeks; the artist who created the music and SFX (Szymon 'Zombie' Karpierz) also composed the music to our previous PSP minis game, Boom Beats (he composed the music to I Must Run! too).
Development of I must Run! started six months ago. We thought it would be great to bring an action, running game with a thrilling story to PSP minis. These games are great,...
160w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has introduced a super-mega-ultra 50% off PSN sale which begins tomorrow.
To quote: "What if we can spoil our fans for the holidays by cutting something in half?"
This question, self-posed, is what put everything in motion. From there, it was basically a lot of late nights, major damage to office furniture, a couple of trips to the emergency room, and a few really beautifully sliced watermelons.
Finally, we realized it had been under our noses the whole time: why not cut our games in half? Sadly, after destroying the last couple Demon's Souls Collector's Editions in the office, we realized the BEST option was to cut PRICES in half, hence this sale, which we're calling, in full caps for maximum attention-grabbage, the SUPER-MEGA-ULTRA 50% off PlayStation Network sale*.
The sale starts tomorrow, Tuesday, November 16th and ends on November 29th. Supplies aren't limited, because hey, it's digital, and the sale applies to the North American PlayStation Store. You will be able to use your PS3 or PSP to view the full list of discounted titles, or you can peep the list below:
161w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has shared a video introduction of Jewel Keepers: Easter Island for Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We are releasing Jewel Keepers: Easter Island, our latest minis title, very soon, and I wanted to tell you a few things about it.
As you might have guessed from the title, Jewel Keepers: Easter Island is a Match-3 game set on the Easter Island. As in all Match-3 games, you are required to swap adjacent jewels to put three jewels of the same colour next to each other in one row or column.
However, we have added a few gameplay elements that make Jewel Keepers different. You can have a look at the trailer to see the differences:
When you start a new level, all cells are grey. When jewels disappear, they turn grey cells into golden cells, and the goal of the game is to turn all cells into golden ones. This sounds pretty straight-forward when you think of an ordinary rectangular level.
However, as you progress further, you will be faced with more sophisticated level shapes, and it will get more and more challenging. And satisfying, once you complete the level.
And a few words about bonuses: we wanted to make bonuses a bit different from other games. We have time...
