4w ago - Executive Producer Tommi Halonen announced today that SingOn launches on PlayStation 3 this Spring with details below.

To quote: Free-to-try singing game comes with 10 tracks, and thousands more to purchase!

Hello and welcome to a new kind of singing game! SingOn is brought to you by SingOn Ltd from Oulu, Finland. The company formed in 2009 with the goal to modernize singing games, turning them into something sleek and current.

The game has been designed for easy and agile usability so that everyone can grab a mic and have a good time straightaway. An important point for us is to make sure SingOn's always current.

Our dynamic streaming services allows us to launch with thousands of songs including rock, pop, indie, dance and hip-hop classics and to update the game every week with all the tracks from the UK Top 20 Chart. Even within the company we have widely varying music tastes so we know how important it is to offer something for everyone!

From a design point of view we wanted a simple, clean and modern interface. The lyrics are the heart of the game - guiding you on the melody and sparkling to let you know if you have sung high, low or on-pitch.

As well as great music, we've also included party-friendly voice...

To quote: Hi readers! I'm Daniel Posner, reaching out to you from Toronto, Canada. My long-time friend, Rich Hilmer, and I recently co-founded a brand new indie game studio called Finish Line Games.

Along with guru programmer friend Matt Robinson, Rich and I have been working on a passion project over the past few years, and we're super excited to announce the fruits of our labor: Cel Damage HD, a high definition re-release of the original, vehicular combat game that debuted back in 2001.

It's cold in Toronto at the moment, but spring is right around the corner. We'll be celebrating the end of the cold with the explosive launch of Cel Damage HD on PlayStation Store as a cross-buy purchase for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. That's right, buy it for one system and you can play it on all three!

Some of you might remember this timeless classic, but let me refresh you on everything Cel Damage HD has to offer. Part Demolition Derby, part Whacked-Out Cartoon Come to Life, Cel Damage HD allows you to play as up to 10 crazy characters/vehicles with more than 30 over-the-top weapons.

Play in either Smack Attack (deathmatch), Flag Rally (capture-the-flag)...

To quote: Hi everyone! Spring is here (even if Mother Nature hasn't quite realized that yet) and that means one thing: it's time for our annual Spring Fever promotion. I'm super excited to announce that this year's event will bring new indie titles to both PS3 and PS4.

Just like last year's Spring Fever promotion, over the next four weeks we are championing indie developers who are bringing new and exciting experiences to the PlayStation platforms and giving PS Plus members 20 % off each title during each game's launch week.

The Spring Fever lineup features titles from stellar indie developers and I think it is safe to say that this year's lineup rivals (and maybe even surpasses) that of 2013.

3/4 to 3/10 Awesomenauts Assemble (PS4) $7.99 $9.99
