155w ago - SCEA Associate Producer Michael Pulst has announced today that Top Darts is now on PSN for $9.99 in 1080p, complete with PlayStation Move support and custom dartboards!
To quote: Earlier this month we announced the PlayStation Move exclusive PSN game Top Darts by Devil's Details and SCEE XDEV.
I'm pleased to announce it is available today exclusively on the PlayStation Store.
As a quick recap, Top Darts is a game that utilizes the PlayStation Move motion controller to give the realistic feeling of throwing darts.
It's a game for all users who have an interest in playing classic games such as 501, Around the Clock and Cricket. Top Darts also has unique games such as Mayhem, Fusewire, Cat and Mouse, Stack Up and many more.
The game allows you to bring a lot of your own personality into the game. For example, you can customize your darts to match your personal style or use the PlayStation Eye camera to customize your avatar and even the dart board.
For an interesting effect while playing, you can use the camera to capture video that displays on the dart board during gameplay.
158w ago - Today SCEA Associate Producer Michael Pulst has announced that Top Darts for PlayStation Move is coming soon to PSN in 1080p!
To quote: Top Darts is a new PlayStation Move title coming soon to PSN, and it's a realistic darts game that is perfect for all users - from those who love to play darts often and know a lot of the classic games, to those more like me who enjoy playing but don't own a dartboard because the wall would look like Swiss cheese.
The developer, Devils Details, has been hard at work making this fun and challenging game to play along with your friends. They packed in classic dart games like 501, Around the Clock, and Cricket, as well as a large selection of other game modes.
For those who want to play with friends, Top Darts allows up to eight people to play in a range of games that are suited just for the multiplayer gaming experience. If you're on your own, work your way up the League and Cup modes to become a world-class darts player!
Top Darts doesn't just cater to the traditional darts player; there are also simultaneous game modes. This allows two players to play at the same time offering a fun and fast paced gaming experience.
163w ago - XDev Studio Europe Senior Producer Mark McGinley has introduced Top Darts today for PS3 on PlayStation Move via PSN and shared some details, as follows:
The development team at Devils Details have been fully immersing themselves in both the sport and the Move Controller for several months now.
We believe they've come up with something that's not only true to the real game thanks to the precision of the Move Controller, but which is also a great deal of fun.
The game's controls have been specially designed to take advantage of the three dimensional depth and precision of the PlayStation Move and the interaction between player and dart is better than any darts game you've ever played before.
When bringing the sport to the PlayStation 3 we wanted to ensure that the game was not only a challenge that rewards practice, but also a great game to play with friends.
Top Darts combines a mix of classic Dart games, like 501, Around The Clock and Cricket, with extensive League & Cup competition modes, as well as a large selection of varied game modes.
If competing against your friends is more your thing Top Darts allows up to 8 players to battle it out across a range of competitive games and events specifically...
167w ago - Today Associate Producer Eric Miller at Redoubt has introduced PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour for the PS3 entertainment system via PlayStation Move.
To quote: Developing PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour has been great fun, with plenty of challenges involved as well as some perks such as being able to get direct access to the PDC for Character and Environment reference photography, access to top Darts manufacturers such as Harrows and Winmau and getting to meet Sid Waddell and John Gwynn - more on these guys later!
Of course, being one of the first PlayStation Move motion controller titles has made developing this game distinctly different from anything we've been involved with previously.
Unpacking the prototype units we received early in development and getting to play with it in the prototype environment that Sony provide caused quite a stir around the office, with everyone eventually coming over to have a quick go; of course, once we'd implemented it into Darts: Pro Tour they came back again to see how we'd done!
The PlayStation Move is such a natural fit for a Darts game, and it truly feels great to load up the latest build, stand up and fire off a 9-Darter (I've had a lot of practice!) to hear Sid and John exclaim about the spectacle!
