With the much-heralded arrival of InFamous: Second Son, we thought the franchise’s first two (and a half) entries deserved one more day in the spotlight. Sucker Punch Productions first introduced the world to Cole McGrath and the Ray Sphere in 2009. But how did the franchises’s beginnings prepare us for one of the most anticipated titles of the new console generation? (more…)

Tetris, Black Ops DLC lead all PlayStation Store purchases in 2011

For over 20 years, Tetris has captivated the world. And in 2011, it sank its tetrahedronal teeth into PS3 gamers all over again as the vintage puzzler managed to outsell every other PSN game on the PlayStation Store. Sing it with me!

Doo, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do, dododo.

The data comes from a Game Informer report listing the ten best-selling PSN games for 2011. Other top ten contenders include the Resident Evil 4 HD remake, the InFamous 2 standalone expansion InFamous: Festival of Blood, and Telltale’s Back to the Future adaptation.

You can find the full list, as well as a look at the bestselling DLC add-ons, after the break. (more…)

InFamous: Festival of Blood, PixelJunk SideScroller added to PS Store

Sony has updated the PlayStation Store with the final “Only On PSN” selections: InFamous: Festival of Blood and PixelJunk SideScroller.

In InFamous: Festival of Blood, a vampiric virus has swept through New Marais, infecting everyone, including Cole McGrath. Festival of Blood is a standalone expansion, meaning it doesn’t require InFamous or InFamous 2. The game also includes the new User Generated Content tools and vamps out with a nice $9.99 price tag (PS Plus subscribers get it for an even nicer $7.99).

PixelJunk SideScroller is Q-Games’ take on the side-scrolling shooter. And as you’d expect from the development team, they turn the genre on its head with “luminescent visuals, incredible bosses, and unforgettable powerups and weaponry.” PixelJunk SideScroller has also been priced at $9.99 with a 20% discount for PS Plus users.

A ridiculous number of additional new releases have been brought to the PS Store this week including Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone, Daytona USA, Worms: Crazy Golf, and downloadable versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Homefront, and MX vs ATV Alive.

More information on all of this week’s new releases and game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation.Blog.

Sony makes its Move on the Fall with LBP2 Move Pack, InFamous 2 Festival of Blood, more

Sony has big plans for the PlayStation Move this Autumn.

Leading things off on September 13 (which was actually a few days ago) is “LittleBigPlanet’s biggest Downloadable Content pack to date,” LittleBigPlanet 2 Move Pack: Rise of the Cakeling. Rise of the Cakeling adds five new story levels, seven side levels and gives gamers the ability to paint their own stickers and create their own Move-powered games. According to Sony, the Move Pack for LBP2 will “vastly broaden your creative palette.”

If you’d prefer to paint the town with blood, the standalone InFamous: Festival of Blood will be available to download on October 25 alongside a game update that adds Move support to InFamous 2.

Rounding out the rest of the Move-a-palooze is Everybody Dance on October 18 and the trio of Carnival Island, EyePet & Friends and Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest on November 15.

You can move forward with more information on all of these Move titles after the break. (more…)

InFamous 2: Festival of Blood “Witness the Resurrection” teaser

Of all games to catch the vampire plague, InFamous 2 was not one that I was expecting. But, from the looks of this teaser trailer, it looks like it will be an interesting addition to the Infamous universe. Out just in time for Halloween, Festival of Blood will have you shocking your way through some fanged foes and pimping ’round the streets of a very creepy New Marais.
