This fall, Sony Online Entertainment will release Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures, a free-to-play, browser-based virtual world based on the popular animated series. Based on SOE’s Free Realms engine, the game will allow players to create a character and then enter a world where they’ll have immediate access to a host of mini-games, with an [...]
New details on the officially confirmed upcoming LittleBigPlanet 2 have been leaked onto the web from the latest issue of Game Informer, and damn, this ain’t your younger-self-from-just-over-a-year-ago’s game. From what was relayed onto NeoGAF LBP 2 isn’t just a platformer with a very, very robust level editor, but a simplistic basis to design almost [...]
Me no speakum hackese, but it sounds like the guy who gave us the iPhone jailbreak claims to have finally hacked the PlayStation 3. Without specifying how (and explaining it to me would be like reading Siddhartha to a dog, in Klingon), George Hotz says he pulled it off after five weeks of work with [...]

One of the many exclusive PlayStation Network downloadables not specifically called out by Sony in its Tuesday conference: Gravity Crash, a new shooter from UK dev Just Add Water that mashes Geometry Wars-esque retro-vector style with twitchy dual stick shooting, and, more importantly, includes a full level editor to let players create and share their [...]
David Cage’s collective output at Quantic Dream have always been nothing if not massively ambitious: from the wide open world of his PC/Dreamcast debut Omikron to the multi-camera cinematic perspective and directly user-controlled actions of PC/Xbox 360′s Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, with both just undercut from being true masterworks by tiny details.
