56w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui announced today that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be getting an official PSN release with some free new characters tomorrow!
Below are the details, to quote: I wanted to give the PlayStation Nation the inside scoop on some cool things we have coming up for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 this week. Starting on Tuesday, November 13th, we will be offering Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as a download on PlayStation Store for $49.99.
For those of you doing the math right now, that's $10 cheaper than a Blu-ray copy of the game. And for those of you who have not purchased the game yet and are looking for another excuse to download or grab a copy, we will be releasing the final timed character roster update this week as well! BOOM! HYPE! WISDOM!
Monday night we'll unleash the final Tekken fighters from their cages and let them loose on the internet for our dedicated fans. The new unlocked characters for feature three returning favorites: Dr. Boskonovitch, Unknown and Violet.
It's been a while since players have been able to get their hands on these characters and play as them themselves, with Dr. B last playable in Tekken 3, Unknown last playable in the original Tekken Tag Tournament and Violet in Tekken 4.

82w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced today on Sony's blog that PSOne title Arc Arena: Monster Tournament will be hitting PSN tomorrow.
To quote: Arc the Lad has been flying off the virtual shelf for a few months now, followed by the penultimate Arc the Lad II. These first two games have reminded users just how good the series is and how deep and fulfilling Japanese RPGs can be.
There is something special about the genre that can't be replicated. And there aren't many titles that make it to Western markets. MonkeyPaw Games is dedicated to bringing you these lost legends.
This week's release is an add-on game to Arc the Lad II. Arc Arena: Monster Tournament allows gamers to use their save data from Arc The Lad II. Players can trade their items, weapons and monsters between other players and then battle each other in tournament matches.
Import monsters captured in the game, mix and match weapons and then battle your monsters in the Arena with friends. This is the classic RPG experience.
Since Arc The Lad II is the preeminent game in the series and Arc Arena: Monster Tournament is the customizable add-on, fans of the series will be wowed by the fun factor of battling your characters with friends...and enemies! Role playing games were...
85w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has posted up a video today spotlighting Tekken Tag Tournament 2 powering up for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!
To quote: Though Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has been available in arcades since earlier this year in the States (and back into September in Japan), the revamped PS3 version brings numerous new characters and a new training mode that re-imagines the series' previously established mini-games.
While the main fighting mechanics of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feel familiar to anyone acquainted with the series' staccato combat style, the console version introduces a few new ways to lock horns with worthy competitors.
You can now fight opponents in several configurations - two against two, two against one, and one against one - and each of these modes is available at any time.
In matches that pit one character against two, the disadvantaged player receives a more generous life bar but obviously cannot switch fighters when the going gets rough. Conversely, the player with two fighters will have to pay close attention; in true Tekken tag form, you'll lose the round if either character is KO'd.
During the Namco Bandai Gamer's Day, the developers...
