A new strategic partnership between Sony Computer Entertainment and Unity means we're going to be seeing a lot more of the popular game engine on PlayStation hardware. Beyond the current support for PlayStation 3, this arrangement includes tools for PS4, PS Vita, PS Mobile, and "Sony's upcoming cloud gaming service."

The ability for developers to more easily get their games on multiple systems is indeed great news, particularly for smaller teams. Unity CEO David Helgason says that the tools are coming late this year with a beta planned prior to full release. He also had some very kind words to share:

"Sony Computer Entertainment is really committed to making their platforms approachable to all kinds of developers, so this partnership is going to make a lot of sense for both companies... and a lot of sense for the Unity community! They’re really focused on bringing the most creative studios, with an emphasis on independent developers, on board their platforms and we are leading the charge to make development awesome for studios of all sizes."

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more

Boy, The Hong Kong Massacre sure looks like Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami by way of Stranglehold or any other John Woo flick, at least. Which is appropriate for the setting. Though I'm also reminded of Michael Mann's Miami Vice movie for some reason. I guess it can't exactly be Hotli...more
