66w ago - Egg Ball Games Marketing and Communication Manager Aurelie Gerault has announced today that Jazz: Trump's Journey will jive onto PS Vita this coming Winter!
To quote: It's Aurelie here from Egg Ball Games to unveil Jazz: Trump's Journey, our first downloadable PS Vita title, co-produced with Bulkypix.
Supported by the CNC (French National Organism of Cinema) and awarded the 2012 Best Video Game of the Year prize by the French Ministry of Culture, our game immerses the player in the memories of Trump - in his dreams as a young, star-struck jazz musician in love with the lovely Lady Poppy.
Presenting a daring parallel with the real story of jazz legend Louis Armstrong, you'll relive Trump's life, through his quest to form a jazz group, through his love affair and through his battle against injustice in New Orleans in the early 20th century.
We think the original scenario is the main strength of the game - no platformer has dealt with this sort of theme before. Egg Ball's aim was to talk about the creation of jazz and the people responsible.
All of the team here are very fond of Louis Armstrong, his music and his life. They get really inspired by his art and his approach...
248w ago - Microsoft's Xbox 360 may have the movie monopoly in the UK, with downloadable content available from Paramount, Universal and Warner, but Sony is inching ahead in the US.
Sony has recently signed a deal with NBC Universal which was the last major studio to allow downloadable content on the PS3.
This is a feat that Microsoft will possibly never achieve as the one major studio whose content is missing from Xbox Live is, you've guessed it, Sony Pictures.
Unless, of course, they access Sony films through the console's Netflix service.
Adding Universal's content to the PS3 - which includes the movies Milk and Role Models, and TV shows The Office and Battlestar Galactica - means that the PS3 now boasts around 1,300 movies and 4,500 TV episodes. The movies and shows will also be available to download on the PSP.
Recently, Microsoft bolstered its UK movie download service with the addition of Universal. Let's hope that the content deals Sony has inked will come across the water soon, as the company has still yet to announce a UK movie download service.
