11w 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...

To quote: Today, we're very excited to announce that rain will launch on October 1st on PlayStation Store for $14.99 in North America! To celebrate the news, we're sharing the second developer diary from the team at Japan Studio and PlayStation C.A.M.P., so watch and enjoy.
From the early stages of the production cycle, we've always felt that music is one of the most important elements in creating the world of rain. In this developer diary, Yugo Kanno – who handled all aspects of the composition and arrangements – explains what initially inspired him when introduced to the project, and his experiences while composing the music.
We were also extremely fortunate to work with Connie Talbot, an up-and-coming vocalist from the UK who made her debut on Britain's Got Talent back in 2007. In the interview seen in the video, Connie shares her excitement and the unique challenges faced during the recording.
We're also pleased to announce a pre-order that you can pick up now until September 30th on the PlayStation Store that will offer a few pieces...

Right from the start of the conference, aspects of the new console's menu system was on display, showing a modified Cross-Media Bar that seemed to focus more on games in related content than multiple static menus and the new controller based keyboard that uses a free-moving crosshair than the current setup.
Additionally, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Andrew House confirmed that gamers who have already bought the PS3 version of specific games such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Watch Dogs will be able to purchase the PS4 version for a severely discounted price.
