44w ago - Sony Director of Product Planning & Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa has announced today that the PlayStation Home Arcade App is available today for PS Vita.
Below are the details, to quote:
Since launch, PS Vita owners have gained access to lots of great applications on our new handheld, and we don't have any plans to slow down. We're rolling out a brand new app that brings many classic arcade games, along with a few new titles that were previously available only through PlayStation Home. We call it PlayStation Home Arcade.
PlayStation Home Arcade is available today and serves as a portal for some of your favorite arcade classics like Centipede, Asteroids, and Frogger. We're also offering more recent titles, like Icebreaker and the very addicting Scribble Shooter, which was previously only available in PlayStation Home.
The PlayStation Home Arcade app is a free download in the PlayStation Store, and you can purchase games from directly within the app, starting at $1.49 each. To celebrate the launch, we're offering Ice Breaker, WipEout 2D and a demo of Scribble Shooter absolutely free!
If you've purchased any of the available titles as arcade cabinets within PlayStation Home, you can download these titles again on PS Vita at no additional cost.
45w ago - DC Universe Online Executive Producer Larry Liberty has announced that DC Universe Online Home Turf PS3 DLC is available today with details below, as follows:
Today our latest DLC pack - Home Turf - went live! Home Turf is our sixth DLC and brings with it the biggest addition to DC Universe Online since the launch of the game two years ago - Player Bases.
Bases are a player-created and controlled space that can be used as a venue of self-expression in addition to being a place for combat. Perhaps the most important part of your Base is the Mainframe. Through it, players can unlock several new abilities. In a lot of ways it's like having your very own Bat Computer.
The thing you're likely to notice when you first enter your Base is a terminal on the wall next to the front door. This is your Base's Control Panel, and by interacting with this you can relocate or rename your Base, or enter Decoration Mode.
Decoration Mode pops you into a first-person camera, allowing you to easily zoom around your Base, placing and moving items and amenities. The latter can include things like an R&D Station, Broker, Mailbox, or Bank. Basically, the things that you otherwise would need to visit a Safehouse or HQ to use - in the convenience of your own home.
64w ago - PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Cade Peterson has shared a PS3 developer Q&A interview spotlighting the Battle for Black Powder Cove 2.0 in PlayStation Home today.
To quote: Last week, PlayStation Home got an update to the action-packed free-to-play multiplayer game, Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove.
With this news, we jumped on the phone to chat with Michael Mumbauer, Director of the Visual Arts Service Group (VASG), a madly creative department within Sony Computer Entertainment America. VASG has been helping make Home content nearly since Home went Open Beta and has made some of the platform's most entertaining items and spaces, including the Home Mansion.
Although VASG creates art and code for other development teams, like several of the World Wide Studios, this is their first full game.
Michael was kind enough to let me ask some questions that will shed a little insight on the decisions that went into this 2.0 update.
PlayStation.Blog: VASG has created content for Home for years, but when Home transitioned to a game platform in itself, it was the next logical step for them to step their game up and make one. What was the original concept behind Cutthroats,...
