Sony VP on PlayStation Network Outage, PSN Status Updates 750°
10w ago - Sony Consumer Experience VP Catherine Jensen shared details today on the PlayStation Network outage alongside PSN status updates below.

To quote: The video game industry has been experiencing high levels of traffic designed to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay.

Multiple networks, including PSN, have been affected over the last 48 hours. PSN engineers are working hard to restore full network access and online gameplay as quickly as possible.

From time to time there may be disruptions in service due to surges in traffic, but our engineers will be working to restore service as quickly as possible.

If you received a PlayStation console over the holidays and have been unable to log onto the network, know that this problem is temporary and is not caused by your game console.

We'll continue to keep you posted on Twitter at @AskPlayStation and we'll update this post once the problems subside.

Thanks again for your patience.

Update: PlayStation Network is back online (although some regions still are seeing 'Intermittent Connectivity' at this time).

As you probably know, PlayStation Network and some other gaming services were attacked over the holidays with artificially...

Pastagames: Pix the Cat Launches for PS4, PS Vita on October 7th

Pastagames: Pix the Cat Launches for PS4, PS Vita on October 7th 50°
22w ago - Pastagames Designer Nadim Haddad announced today that Pix the Cat launches for PS4 and PS Vita on October 7th, 2014.

To quote: Howdy! After the reveal at Gamescom and the ARENA mode presentation, I'm back with a new Pix the Cat game mode for PS4 and PS Vita, coming October 7th!

Got some retro? Everything in the Nostalgia mode - gameplay, art, music, etc. - is inspired by something from the past that we love. The gameplay gives nods to snake, the art draws on early animated cartoons, and the music sports the jangling melodies of ragtime!

We took these references, shook them up in a vintage cocktail shaker, and poured out a cloudy mixture, something we think looks like us. The result is a game that feels familiar but is always ready to surprise you!

This mode plays like Snake but with a few twists. Collect the target number of ducklings to win. Succeed before the Goat chomps the Flower to get the "bonus." Don't run into a wall, get stuck inside your tail, or collide with a baddie, or it's game over.

The many levels offer a variety...

Video: Pix the Cat: PS4 Exclusive Arena Mode Details by Pastagames 50°
24w ago - Pastagames Designer Nadim Haddad shared a video and details today on a PS4 exclusive arena mode in Pix the Cat for PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Hi folks, my name is Nadim and I do game design at Pastagames. We are launching Pix the Cat on PS4 and PS Vita (with cross buy support) in early October, and we have a new game mode exclusive for PS4 players: the Arena!

Call me old-school, but the most outrageous fun I have when playing games is with friends, at home, facing the same screen, hearing laughter or frustration after a quirky situation. I grew up with Bomberman and am still playing Towerfall just to enjoy shoving my buddy's controller away when he's winning or whining too much!

We've been wanting to make a nervy, rewarding couch-multiplayer game for years at Pastagames, and Pix the Cat turned out to be the best opportunity to satisfy this multiplayer urge.




In the Arcade Mode, you control a restless cat in a dimensional maze. You collect ducklings that line up in a tail behind you - and then deliver them on targets to open the gates of the next level.

The core Pix gameplay sets solid grounds for a feisty Arena brawl. So we added three other cats to make a party of (up to) four players...
 

Video: Ragtag Studio: Ray's the Dead Hitting PS Vita with Cross-Buy

Video: Ragtag Studio: Ray's the Dead Hitting PS Vita with Cross-Buy 50°
26w ago - Ragtag Studio Co-Founder Chris Cobb shared a video today announcing Ray's the Dead is hitting PS Vita with PS4 cross-buy.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello again PS.Blog. This is Chris Cobb with Ragtag Studio, developers of the forthcoming PS4 title, Ray's the Dead.

It has been quite a while since we last updated you on our progress, so we have quite a bit of news to share today, including lots of new information on the game, and the announcement that we are bringing Ray's the Dead to PS Vita!

Ray's the Dead was first announced for the PlayStation 4 at Sony's E3 2013 Press Conference.

Since that time, we have been hard at work at refining the controls, enhancing the features of our engine, expanding our arsenal of characters and fine-tuning the story. And finally, we've been developing the part of the game I'm most excited about, our flashback system!




I would like to refer to one of my favorite press quotes to tell you a little known fact about Ray's the Dead: 'Ray's the Dead is a charming and thoughtfully constructed game that, while related to zombies, is really centered on the main character, Ray.' -Cliqist.
