Video: Playbrains Announces Sideway: New York Only on PSN Now

50°
131w ago - Today Playbrains Studio Director Scott Simpson has made available some new video footage and announced that beginning now Sideway: New York is live only on PSN!

To quote: In Hollywood circles, there is a well-known tradition where Steven Spielberg and George Lucas will skip town and go somewhere remote right about when they have a big movie opening.

They do this mostly for good luck, but also to avoid the press and ignore the grosses. Basically, they generally try to get their mind off of the project they've dedicated much of their recent lives to create.

I mention this because our adventure platformer Sideway: New York is all wrapped and done and will be available only on PSN as of today's PlayStation Store update. I also mention this because at this moment, a few of us here at the studio are out in Zimbabwe embarking on a new work project. (Oooh, I can just see the screaming blog headlines now: "Game Developer compares his game to Star Wars").





I mention this preamble principally because my beloved perfect record for responding to questions and comments on the PlayStation.Blog is (*sniff*) about to be sullied and...

133w ago - Today Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has announced that the Uncharted Multiplayer PS3 experience is just hours away now for fans along with sharing some video footage below!

To quote: We're just about a month away from the launch of UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception and I'm sure everyone's craving a Taste for Adventure.

Yes, I just said that. We've been working with our friends at SUBWAY to help satisfy these cravings with a promotion that's never been done anywhere else, ever!

Beginning this Saturday, if you go into a local SUBWAY Restaurant and purchase one of the specially marked UNCHARTED 30 oz drinks, you will receive a code that will provide you with access to the full competitive multiplayer experience throughout the month of October.





Don't believe me? Check out the official word from our favorite adventurer, Nathan Drake.




 

Video: Sideway: New York - A New PSN Dimension to Street Art

100°
133w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up a video and interview with Scott Simpson of Playbrains today on Sideway: New York - a new PSN dimension to street art.

To quote: Sony Online Entertainment is really making its mark on PSN this fall. Rolling out alongside the excellent Rochard and the highly-anticipated PAYDAY: The Heist, Sideway: New York brings an impressive visual flourish to 2D platformers.

Painted protagonist Nox keeps switching planes in 3D as he hugs the walls and jumps from building to building. Take a look at the trailer below.

At last week's Fantastic Fest in Austin, I caught up with Scott Simpson, director of Canadian developing studio Playbrains (and blog comment-reply record holder with a 100% reply rate!).

While he's answered most of the questions out there, Sideway still holds few more details yet to be revealed, including bite-sized, intra-level time trials to earn collectables and "birds that poop bombs." I recorded our conversation as we played through some of the game's early levels.

Video: Payday, Rochard and Sideway: New York PSN Launch Dates

50°
139w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Executive Director of Business Development Chris Sturr has shared launch dates today for PAYDAY: The Heist, Rochard, and Sideway: New York.

To quote: Sony Online Entertainment kicked off the first day with three of our newest PSN titles - Rochard, PAYDAY: The Heist and Sideway: New York. These latest games will engage you in graffiti adventures, environmental puzzlers and high intensity bank robberies, and will launch early this fall on the PlayStation Network via digital download.

Rochard puts you in the shoes of astro-miner John Rochard as he uses his wits and everyday mining tools to fend off space pirates. You must save his team of missing miners and solve the mystery behind the discovery of an ancient alien artifact.

The tools and crazy space gravity make for awesome puzzles, but it's Rochard's snarky sense of humor that really drew us to this game. Rochard will be available September 27th for download on PSN for $9.99.





PAYDAY: The Heist throws you straight into the action with high-stake heists, including bank robberies, prisoner extractions and armored car hijackings, you are forced to work as a team to control incredibly intense situations. This is a great game to play with a...
