15w ago - Atomicom Managing Director Gary Nichols officially revealed Switch Galaxy Ultra for both PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms at Gamescom 2013 today.
To quote: It only seems like just a couple of weeks ago that we were writing our guest post about the release of Switch Galaxy for PlayStation Mobile, and already we're back with our announcement for Switch Galaxy Ultra.
The reviews we saw for Switch Galaxy blew us away, with many 9/10 scores and, of course, the awesome player feedback we received about the game really helped us get energized to improve on our PSM title as we knew there was a lot more we could do with it.
Due to the amazing reviews the Switch Galaxy received, we were invited to meet with the team at SCEE to discuss what our future plans were. As we still had lots of ideas (and, more importantly, the energy) for Switch Galaxy, we wanted to carry on working on it and try to get a native release out ourselves on PS Vita. Luckily they offered to support us in that.
So, we set about producing some new assets, redesigning elements such as the game HUD and front-end, adding new features and improving on some of the areas we felt could be made better.
15w ago - Hello Games Managing Director Sean Murray announced today that Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2 is coming to PS Vita in 2014.
To quote: Oh man! It's so good to be back on the PlayStation.Blog! PlayStation is where Joe Danger and our little studio began, so it feels really good to be able to announce that we're bringing Joe Danger and its sequel, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, to PS Vita next year! Our team owes so much to the PlayStation community...
We released Joe Danger on PS3 all the way back in 2010, which seems pretty much like a decade ago now. To us, anyway. Joe Danger was inspired by our love for the fun, colourful, and challenging games that we grew up playing on SNES and Megadrive, and with your help our little fat stuntman gained a load of fans and highscore chasers, which made us incredibly happy (and frustrated with our skills at our own game).
Anyway, the game did well enough to give us a chance to release Joe Danger 2 last year, which was the Joe Danger we had in our heads (before the realities of our little team actually getting it finished got in the way). With loads of vehicles, scenarios and settings, we're incredibly proud of it.
This should all explain why we're so pleased to be able to announce Joe Danger for PS Vita. It's something we've been quietly (but excitedly)...
16w ago - Vlambeer's Rami Ismail announced today at Gamescom 2013 that Wasteland Kings is hitting PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2014.
To quote: Vlambeer has been around for almost three years.
It's sort of a weird realization for the two of us that the past three years of our lives – practically every moment after we decided to run a games company full time - has been dedicated to making the games people know us for.
It's been an amazing run that's taken us from extreme highs to emotional lows, and introduced us to so many amazing people - whether they're developers or industry or fans.
Vlambeer is something weird. You see, the two of us are polar opposites. Whereas JW is an artistic and creative force full of weird ideas, I tend to do business and programming. If you've ever put two people like that in a single room, you know they don't tend to get along well.
That was true for the two of us as well, and we created this third person that resulted from the collision between us. That third person is what Vlambeer truly is - it's neither Jan Willem nor me. It's a separate "person."
The reason I'm explaining all this is because it is important to explain what the game we just announced for PS4 and PS Vita is.
16w ago - Devolver Digital Chief Financial Officer Fork Parker confirmed today alongside a video that Hotline Miami 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
Below are the details, to quote: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is headed to PS4 and PS Vita, but hopefully you've gathered that from the headline already.
Almost as fast as Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital could announce Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, we started getting questions on whether it would be coming to PlayStation platforms.
And again, if it hasn't sunk in yet, the answer is "yes." Please pay attention. So let's move on a bit and talk more about why we're bringing the neon brutality and blazing beats of the next Hotline Miami to PlayStation.
The original Hotline Miami launched on PS3 and Vita earlier this summer, and the PlayStation community has been incredibly supportive of the game that Dennaton Games originally created and Abstraction Games rebuilt for the platform.
Heck, "supportive" doesn't do it justice - the fans have gone crazy about Hotline Miami, and it hasn't gone unnoticed. Even when there was a little hiccup and some Trophies weren't...
16w ago - Designer Mike Bithell shared a video today announcing that Volume is slated to debut on both PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms.
To quote: Hello, I'm Mike Bithell, and I am a man who makes video games. The last game I made was Thomas Was Alone, and the next is called Volume. It's a stealth game about being heard, and it's coming to PS4 and PS Vita first!
I want you to imagine a 15-year-old Mike. He's nerdy, he's chubby, and he's a bit bored of revising for his maths exams. He's the kind of pedantic person who would be irritated if a website corrected the last sentence to be 'math'.
But right now, he's not revising, and he's not correcting hypothetical American editors. He is, instead, cautiously placing the 'making of' DVD that came with his copy of Metal Gear Solid 2 into his dusty and somewhat dented PS2.
One special feature stands out, it shows Hideo Kojima talking about the process of making levels out of Lego. It kind of blows young Mike's mind: Games are accessible things. He has Lego. Kojima has Lego. In some weird way that Danish toy creates a link that means a lot to him. He decides making games might be for him.
Fast forward to today. I'm now 27. I'm still a massive nerd. I am not yet thin. Last week I announced my new game,...
