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."

As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
