61w ago - Hello Games Managing Director Sean Murray has announced today that Joe Danger 2 is coming to PS3 on October 9th with exclusive content!
Below are the details, as follows: I'm here to tell you something surprising! Joe Danger 2 is coming to PlayStation gamers very soon, next week in fact! That's October 9th in the US!
PlayStation owners are getting a huge exclusive DLC pack of bonus content too. I'd love to tell you more about it, but first I'm going to have to explain a little about how we make games.
When we make a game, we make it for ourselves. We play it every day, getting better and better at it. The great thing is that you get rid of every snag and rough edge, but then we let our friends play, and realise it has become too hard!
That's what happened when we made the original Joe Danger, as four guys sat in a room playing our own game. We actually first made a very tight, very challenging game that took about 10 hours to complete. It was pure and intense!
No tutorials, no handholding, just fun arcade gameplay. Our friends loved it, but only the most skilled players could master it. In fact no one was able to complete it!
We knew we had to go back to the drawing board, we wanted Joe Danger to be more accessible and easier to get into....
61w ago - Giant Sparrow Creative Director Ian Dallas has announced today that The Unfinished Swan flies to PSN on October 23 and has confirmed early PS Plus access too.
To quote: When you make a game about something unusual like, say, throwing paint in an all-white world, you expect to get a lot of questions. But we were surprised that the question we got asked the most turned out to be "when can I buy it?"
Now we have an answer: you can buy The Unfinished Swan on October 23rd exclusively on PSN for $14.99. And if you're a PlayStation Plus member, you can get the game a week early - October 16th.
In the meantime, there's still a lot to learn about the game. You've met the King, now get to know us: the team behind it all.
In the first of a series of developer diaries, we'll lift the curtain and give you some background on Giant Sparrow, the beginning of The Unfinished Swan and how we landed on PlayStation Network.
Check it out:
Leading up to launch on October 23rd, we will be back to dive in and show you all you need to know about The Unfinished Swan. For more news about the game you can check out the Giant Sparrow company...
61w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the European PSN game and video updates today, as follows:
October begins and with it that no doubt means the beginning of a busy period in gaming for us all.
To set things in motion, Capcom's Resident Evil 6 headlines this week's ensemble. Return to the series for a new viral outbreak with Leon, Chris and new guy Jake Muller.
If infected people aren't your thing then maybe some intense fighting in Dead or Alive 5 will do the trick. With a returning cast of fan favourites joined by new faces Rig and Mila, have fun smashing your opponent off a snowy cliff or into a leaping tiger. Fun!
Also releasing today, and included for PS Plus subscribers is Sega's Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. If the title hasn't piqued your interest then how about the story - you are Ash, a devil rabbit who's private photos have been leaked causing you to get angry. Very angry!
Other titles releasing this week include PSOne Import Tomba!, along with more Sega goodness - Nights intro Dreams now for PS3.
Enjoy this week's update. Check back next week for more.

62w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has outlined the PlayStation Plus October 2012 content for subscribers today.
Below are all the details, to quote: With Autumn well and truly upon us, what better way to shrug off the gathering gloom than by looking forward to a great month of PlayStation Plus content?
And, I hope you agree, it is indeed something of a whopper, with two massive blockbuster games coming to your Instant Game Collection, along with a weird and wonderful PSN platformer from Sega.
First things first, as of tomorrow Plus members get free access to Hell Yeah! Wrath of Dead Rabbit. As should be made evident by the trailer below, it's an absolutely insane side-scroller that sees you step into the shoes of a demonic rabbit hell-bent on vengeance after pictures of him in the shower make it onto the internet. It's been picking up some great reviews - make sure you check it out.
