69w ago - Sony Assistant Producer Dais Kawaguchi has officially announced their new PSN title Rain today and invite fans to watch the PS3 trailer below!
To quote: Japan Studio has a pedigree in creating a breadth of incredibly unique games, so it is no surprise to see that their next is a stylistic, original title.
Crafted by a team of talented creators known as PlayStation C.A.M.P., we're pleased to introduce their latest game, rain.
In this dark, mysterious world, you take on the role of a boy who becomes invisible, so his figure can only be seen in the rain. Freshly revealed at Gamescom, watch the announce trailer for a first look at this wondrous story.
That's all for now, but keep an eye out for more news about rain in the coming months.
86w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has confirmed today that they will be publishing the upcoming video game entitled Dragon's Crown for both PS3 and PS Vita platforms.
To quote: You know how you're really excited for something and then something happens and you get even more excited?
Like that time you found out they were making a movie for The Hobbit and you were excited... but kinda bummed that Peter Jackson wouldn't be directing it.
But guess what happened: Peter Jackson announced that he would in fact direct it, and you got a heck of a lot more excited. Right?
Remember Dragon's Crown, the next project from Vanillaware announced at last E3, a multiplayer action RPG with beautiful hand-drawn visuals slated to come to PS3 and PS Vita?
BREAKING NEWS: Atlus is taking over publishing duties in Japan and North America! What's more, key (and very talented) members of the Atlus internal development team will be involved with the project as producer(s).
You know, some of the people who've worked on games in the critically acclaimed Persona series. Yeah, we know: we're stoked, too!
What does this mean for the game? For one, it means that it's going to be better than ever. It will, however, come a bit later than originally...
92w ago - This weekend PlayStation Vita hacker Hellcat has discovered that when connected, the PS3 entertainment system downloads a list of content IDs from PSN and can actually block the transfer of PSP / Other game titles to Sony's PS Vita handheld console.
To quote: "The PS3 offers the very convenient option of downloading PSP content from the PSN store, store it on the local hard drive to later be transferred to a PSP or a PS Vita.
And here comes the catch: When you connect a PS Vita to the PS3 via Content Manager and use the function to transfer “Applications (PSP/Other) downloaded to the PS3 system” to the PS Vita, while the “Please wait” is shown on the PS Vita and before the PS3 sends the list of available titles, it fetches a list from PSN servers and crosschecks the local content against this list and only offers those titles to be transferred that are not “blocked” by said list.
I don’t know if it is a blacklist or a whitelist, and it’s encrypted, but it is used to hide or block out titles from being transferred to the PS Vita!
So, for example:
You downloaded MotorStorm Arctic Edge in time to your PS3 and also successfully transferred it to the PS Vita and did not delete it from the PS3.
