Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign Rises on PS3 Tomorrow in 1080p

39w ago - Sanuk Games Manager Yan Marchal announced today that Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign rises on PS3 tomorrow in 1080p.

To quote: I'm ecstatic to announce that Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign shall be brought to life in the US on PlayStation Store for PS3 on July 16th, pinned with a bargain price of only $5.99.

Originally developed by Space Monkeys International, a studio renowned for their top-end hidden object adventure games, Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign comes to PS3 in an all-new high-definition edition with native 1080p graphics.

When the game was first presented to me, I was impressed by its art quality, level of polish, and amount of content that were clearly above genre standards. Since then, most PC users have echoed my feelings with high ratings, while also praising the game's original soundtrack and spellbinding atmosphere. The availability of yet-to-be-used HD 1080p graphics for all scenes further convinced me that a PS3 edition was simply necessary.

The game has you play as James Voodoo as he investigates mysterious attacks through the forsaken hamlet of Ravenhill, the wealthy city of Richtown, and a variety of breathtaking sceneries inspired by major fiction genres: adventure, film noir, thriller, steampunk, and more!
 

Okami HD at Comic-Con: Amaterasu Unleashed with Move, 1080p

92w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared details today of Okami HD from Comic-Con: Amaterasu Unleashed which includes PlayStation Move support and 1080p!

To quote: San Diego Comic-Con doesn't want for distractions - famous graphic novelists greet their fans, uber-limited edition collectables line sprawling tables, and cosplayers roam the halls by the thousands.

When I learned that Capcom would be showing Okami HD at their booth, all of those attractions quickly dropped in importance; I knew where my Comic-Con would kick off.

Mere seconds after the doors of the San Diego Convention Center opened for business, Capcom's Tristan Corbett handed me a PlayStation Move motion controller and I beheld Japanese sun goddess-turned-canine Amaterasu in full HD glory for the first time.

Not all HD remakes are created equal, but Hexa Drive's effort clearly isn't just a soulless re-processing. With the PS3's hardware muscle to play with, they're working to improve draw distance and load times over the PS2 original.

The cel-shaded visuals up-rez quite nicely, with the game's iconic bold, black outline strokes popping off the HD display. All cutscenes have been fully recreated, and areas of the game that the team felt weren't...

A lot has changed since 2002, but your loyalty to our furry Lombax and his faithful robot companion has endured. As we reach the 10th Anniversary of Ratchet & Clank, we wanted to commemorate the achievements of the Ratchet & Clank saga.

Now you can check out the acclaimed multiplayer mode that many of you didn't get to experience the first time on PS2.

Video: Tetris PSN in 1080p and 5.1 with PS3-Exclusive Multiplayer

300°
174w ago - EA Mobile Senior Producer Christophe Gomez has posted up a new video today spotlighting Tetris PSN in 1080p and 5.1 with PS3-exclusive multiplayer action!

To quote: We are launching Tetris on PlayStation Network and it'll be available to download from the PSN store in very early next year.

This version of Tetris boasts 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080P HD graphics, plus six online and local multiplayer modes.

Of course, you can play Marathon mode by yourself in the boldest and brightest graphics ever, but what we're really excited about are three new PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes that will make this a must-have.

I can't go into much detail, but these new online, real-time multiplayer modes will be more fun and competitive than anything you've seen before.





A couple of weeks ago Alexi Pajitnov, the original creator of Tetris, got to try out this new PS3 version and absolutely loved it. And since we know how excited you are, we have a trailer ready to showcase just how awesome this gets.

Check it out above! This is going to be the definitive Tetris experience.
