Video: PSP AdhocParty is Now Available on PlayStation Network 50°
271w ago - PSP European Product Manager Adam Grant has shared a video today for Sony's new PSP AdhocParty, which is now available in Europe on PlayStation Network.

To quote: AdhocParty for PSP is available to download for free from the PlayStation Store on PS3 today!

AdhocParty is an online service that allows PSP owners with a PS3 system to connect to one another via the PlayStation Network. So, how does adhocParty work? PSP titles with adhoc mode traditionally require you to play within close proximity to each other.

AdhocParty changes that.AdhocParty enables you to play games featuring Ad Hoc mode, such as Gran Turismo and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, over the Internet through the PS3. This means that you can make the most of the Ad Hoc Mode functions in some of your favourite games even when none of your friends or fellow players are close by!

Your PSP connects to the PS3 via Wi-Fi, allowing you to chat online with fellow gamers in the SCEE region before jumping into competition from the comforts of each of your respective living rooms.

In addition to all of its competitive and social gaming features, adhocParty for PSP supports voice chat through the Wireless Headset or PlayStation Eye, offering you a complete and immersive gaming experience only available on...
 

Hustle Kings for PS3 is Available Today on PlayStation Network

Hustle Kings for PS3 is Available Today on PlayStation Network 200°
271w ago - XDev Studio Europe's Associate Producer Robert Karp has announced that Hustle Kings for PS3 is available today on PlayStation Network.

To quote: I am here to give you latest news on Hustle Kings.

Over the last year VooFoo studios and Sony have been combining their skills with some good old fashioned elbow grease to help make Hustle Kings the best. We have been packing in as many features as possible, whilst at the same time adding so much polish that you can almost see your own face! Check out these balls if don't believe me.

There has been a lot of discussion internally about how we can do something a little different with the trophy system and we finally decided to make one of the silver trophies a little bit different from the rest... This trophy can only be unlocked by playing online and beating someone else who already has it - Sounds simply enough? Now the best part is that the developers are the only ones who will start with it and that means the only way to get it is by beating them at their own game!

Now to bit that I hope you've all been waiting for... (Drum roll please)

Release date: 22nd of December 2009 (That's...
 

European PlayStation Store Update for December 22, 2009

European PlayStation Store Update for December 22, 2009 400°
271w ago - SCEE's Mike Kebby of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the final European PSN update of 2009, as follows:

It's the last update of the year; I can't believe it! I think we've made inroads into improving the store this year, and of course I have high hopes that we'll carry this momentum on into 2010.

As with last week, we're feeling generous, so I have some codes to give away (these codes will be for one piece of content available via the store) - there is no competition to enter, I'll just be reading all the comments and giving codes out to those I deem the best comments made.

Think of this as the blog version of 'letters of the month' you find in print magazines I'll respond on the blog to tell you you've got a code, and then I'll send it to you via a PSN message.

Onto the content this week then - Hustle Kings is here, and offers all you wannabe hustlers out there to chance to show off your skills with the cue. The classic RPG Vagrant Story also arrives, and is available to play on both PS3 and PSP.

We have our first batch of premium avatars available on the store; and these are all from the world of LittleBigPlanet, so know you can personalise your PSN ID with some of the sackboy costumes we've previously released.
