11w ago - Seaven Studio Co-founder Olivier Penot announced that Ethan: Meteor Hunter is headed for PS Vita, complete with a PS3 demo and price cut with details below.

To quote: Hey guys! You've asked for it, and it's happening! I'm happy to announce that Ethan: Meteor Hunter, often described as "when Super Meat Boy meets Braid" and released in October on PlayStation 3 and PC, will arrive on PlayStation Vita very soon!

We will announce a definitive release date soon, but expect it this spring!

Can't remember what Ethan: Meteor Hunter is about? Let me refresh your memory. You can freeze time and manipulate the world with dynamic use of physics allowing endless possibilities: overcome challenging platforms and tricky puzzles the way YOU want.

Nothing is scripted, levels can be solved in multiple ways. You'll die repeatedly but you'll enjoy it - master the one-hit kill gameplay and feel like a hero when you succeed!

The game features leaderboards (shared between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita), 50 levels within three different worlds, secret bonuses and challenging trophies!

You will also be able to use the touch screen as it just made sense with the freeze-time feature to move objects around.

And you can use the Rear Touch Pad to rotate objects...
 

Video: Atomic Ninjas Release Date and Price Revealed, New Trailer

100°
30w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska posted up a fresh PSN video trailer today alongside revealing both the release date and pricing information for Atomic Ninjas on PS3 and PS Vita below.

To quote: Hey everybody, this is Jakub from Grip Games. Our newest game, Atomic Ninjas, is almost ready, and I return today to finally announce the release date and price!

Atomic Ninjas will be launched for PS3 on October 8th for $9.99! It will launch on PS Vita one week later, and it€ll be cross buy.

With that said, let me introduce you to the craziest and most hilarious feature of the whole game. It€s something we€ve been looking forward to show you for a very long time: the Noob Rage.

Sometimes, the biggest loser in the whole match who€s getting massacred by all the other players, is given a very unfair chance for sweet revenge.

He€ll become a raging, screaming, unstoppable hulk for a few seconds - an absolute ruler of the game who dominates the arena. When you see that one of the other players has turned into the Noob, you only have one strategy to use: run for your life! Hilarity ensues.

As if Atomic Ninjas wasn€t a crazy enough game, the Noob Rage is pure chaos. The player who gets this advantage can use it to increase their score, or he can use it...
 

Pachter: PlayStation 4 / PS4 to Sell for $349, XBox One for $399

46w ago - Following up on the previous rumors for PlayStation 3 pricing, today Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter speculates that Sony's PlayStation 4 will sell for $349 while Microsoft's XBox One will go for $399.

Below are the details, to quote: "Investment firm Wedbush Morgan has suggested the PlayStation 4 will retail in the US for $349, significantly lower than the PS3's starting price of $599.

In an E3 preview note to investors Michael Pachter, analyst at the company, estimates that the PlayStation 4 has a bill of materials at around $275, while Microsoft's Xbox One costs around $325. As such, Wedbush is expecting the new Microsoft console to cost $399.

But while Microsoft's new hardware may be priced higher initially, it's also more likely to be available at a subsidised price to the consumer through a subscription contract from a broadcast, cable or ISP provider.

"We believe the ability to watch live TV from a cable, telco, or satellite set-top box through Xbox One could entice an MSO to drive subscriptions through a subsidised box in exchange for a multi-year contract. The 'always connected' requirement for the Xbox One likely means that a broadband...

77w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared an interview with Ted Price today who officially introduced Insomniac's shape-shifting new shooter Fuse!

To quote: In terms of things that constitute A BIG DEAL, the arrival of a new Insomniac game is right up there.

The California-based studio boasts one of the sturdiest resumes in gaming, with past works including Spyro, Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, and its latest effort €" spectacular third-person shooter Fuse - looks every bit as distinctive.

The set-up is simple - you play as one member of a four-strong squad of special agents, each armed with a high-concept weapon powered by a mysterious alien substance called Fuse.

There's beefy Dalton who wields a weapon that allows him to generate a force field. Naya's assault rifle generates a mini-vortex which sucks in enemies. Izzy wields a shatter gun that freezes foes on the spot, allowing colleagues to step in and vaporize them. Finally, Jacob sports a crossbow that fires molten projectiles capable of turning the opposition into a pile of ash.

It might sound like a rather familiar set-up on paper, but in action it's an extraordinary sight to behold, with each outrageous weapon interacting with each other to create uniquely...
