5w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa announced that today the Soul Sacrifice PSN demo arrives, and has confirmed that game saves transfer to full game with details below.
To quote: I hope you're ready for Soul Sacrifice - the demo will be available this afternoon on PSN!
Your first reaction to the demo might be, "Holy moly, this is a LOT of demo!" ...And you'd be right! The entire first chapter of the full game is included, all of which is playable with up to three other friends via online or ad-hoc multiplayer. Inafune-san made it a special point for the demo to be quite substantial, as you can read in his comments below:
"The number one reason for the Soul Sacrifice demo to have a lot of content was to show the users the full attraction of Soul Sacrifice. We knew that cutting out a small section of the game and saying, 'Isn't this part fun?' would not show the users the full potential of the game. We figured that it wouldn't make sense if the users could not have the 'I want to play more' feeling.
"So, we decided we want to provide, 'at the very least,' this amount of the game for the users. That is why, if you compare it to a standard demo, this became such a substantial piece. But we are confident that this will not become something negative where the users will feel...
55w ago - Dakko Dakko Director Rhodri Broadbent has announced alongside the launch trailer reveal that Floating Cloud God Saves The Pilgrims is free starting today on PSN for PlayStation Plus subscribers!
To quote: Hi there, I'm Rhod from Dakko Dakko and I'd like to introduce you to our second game, Floating Cloud God Saves The Pilgrims.
This time (as the title suggests) your job as Cloud God is to keep your troupe of devoted followers safe on their long journey. It's no easy feat, as there are hordes of peculiar demons waiting across the game's seven worlds, all trying to pick off a pilgrim or two.
It's a game about protection. And shooting. Lots of shooting. The more enemies you shoot without getting hit, the more the pilgrims will love you.
Pilgrim love helps you get faster and more powerful, but getting hit will lose you all that love, and you'll need to work on your shoot-and-dodge skills to get back the hearts you lost. This cycle is the basis of the gameplay.
115w ago - Sony's Senior Director Susan Panico at PlayStation Network has announced today that Online Storage for PS3 Game Saves is coming to PlayStation Plus alongside PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.60 update.
To quote: We've got an exciting new feature coming exclusively to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Included in the system software update (v3.60) coming tomorrow to PS3, PlayStation Network's new online storage for game saves feature gives PlayStation Plus subscribers the capability to back up game save data to the cloud. Online storage for game saves is a great way for PlayStation Plus subscribers to ensure that their data files are secure and also for users who wish to access their files from other PS3 systems.
The new online storage feature allows gamers to store up to 150MB of game save data and a maximum of 1000 data files per PSN account. Users also have the ability to back-up "copy-prohibited save data," and all previously saved data may be restored once per 24 hour period. When the new feature launches, most PS3 titles will be compatible with online storage for game saves, and moving forward, all new titles will have the capability to offer the storage option.
As I mentioned before, online storage for game saves functionality is included automatically for PlayStation Plus subscribers...
