162w 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...
166w 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!
246w ago - Today PAIN Associate Producer Jason Coker announced news of the incoming PAIN Smack Pack, which includes both Darts and Fortress Modes. To quote:
We're about to drop the Smack Pack on you (sold separately), which includes the Darts and Fortress game Modes. As I'm sure you know, traditional Darts wouldn't be suitable for PAIN. We wouldn't dare make something as simple as launching a character into an oversized dartboard.
Instead, you have to launch you character toward a giant sticky billboard with multiple bullseyes painted on it, in the process grabbing another character (or bomb) and chucking it at the billboard. Sounds simple enough, eh?
Oh, I forgot to mention the fact that your opponents have distractions to jack you up during your flight to the billboard. It makes it even more satisfying to clear the distractions and pull off a bullseye, so I hope your game is in order.
Fortress is the other half of the Smack Pack, and it pits you against up to three opponents, each of you with a giant fortress on a floating platform in the sky. On offense, your task is to aim at an opponent's fortress, launch and grab an exploding object, and chuck it at their fortress to inflict maximum damage.
Every bit of damage you do costs that player points, and when...
