165w ago - TV Superstars Creative Director Jason Wilson has announced today that TV Superstars ships tomorrow for PS3 on Sony's PlayStation Move motion controller.
To quote: Apparently some retailers can't wait and we're shipping it early, so look for it starting this Wednesday, October 13th!
For anyone who hasn't heard of TV Superstars yet, here's a bit of background info to help you get excited about its release this week.
TV Superstars was developed by Sony Computer Entertainment's Cambridge Studio, the creative minds behind the popular Medievil series, Primal, Ghosthunter and the award winning LittleBigPlanet on PSP, just to name a few. TV Superstars lets you and your friends and family actually appear in the game and compete in a world of TV stardom.
It uses the PlayStation Eye camera to capture your likeness and the PlayStation Move motion controller to get you competing in a series of crazy TV show challenges, battling it out to become a famous superstar! Each of the TV shows within the game showcases a different use of the PlayStation Move controller and PlayStation Eye camera.
Here's a look at each of the interactive TV shows within the game:
173w ago - O-Games General Manager Greg Lanz has posted up a video today spotlighting Superstars V8 Racing which is coming soon to Sony's PlayStation Network.
To quote: As the publisher for Superstars V8 Racing, we are excited to bring such a robust game to PlayStation Network.
Over the past few years we have watched the digital marketplace grow. As many publishers and developers launched digital products on the PSN platform, O-Games made a strategic decision to hold off until we had the perfect product.
Superstars V8 Racing is one of most robust, deep and graphically rich racing games on PSN, and at $19.99 it's going to be difficult for anyone to find a better bargain; Superstars V8 Racing is a full retail game packaged for PlayStation Network.
Dozens of official circuit tracks, head-to-head online play with up to seven other players, and big name brand cars make this a great racing game.
Why did we drop the retail disc, and go digital on the PSN?
A little over six months ago, we had aspirations to take Superstars V8 Racing to the retail channel. We took the title on tour to the major North American retailers and tried to find a market for the game.
187w ago - Creative Director Jason Wilson has shared the next installment in the ongoing PS3 Developer Diary video series, featuring PlayStation Move with TV Superstars for the PlayStation 3 today.
To quote: Working on a game like TV Superstars has become a bigger, more interesting challenge than I first thought. I've worked on some oddball games before like MediEvil and Ghosthunter, and what was interesting about those games was the idea of creating little worlds that mixed humor with action.
Likewise, the challenge with TV Superstars was to create an environment that finds humor in the world of fame and celebrity, one that players could experience and enjoy together (I like to think of the movie "Zoolander").
Now, add the fantastic new PlayStation Move motion controller and the PlayStation Eye into the mix, and we started to come up with some pretty creative ideas. A whole new generation of design challenges awaited us.
At the core of the game is the theme that you, the players, are taking an action-packed journey through the crazy world of TV shows with a virtual "you" that's created using the PlayStation Eye.
Seeing yourself appear within the game is guaranteed to make you smile. I know the development team...
