Surreal adventure game Datura comes to PS3 on May 8

Go dig out your PS Move controller, if you have one. Otherwise, a DualShock 3 will work just fine.

Gravity Ghost is pretty so I took a bunch of screenshots

I just finished playing through Gravity Ghost (expect a review later today), and as I tend to do with less action-focused titles or sequences, I took a lot of screenshots along the way. Not only does Gravity Ghost's planet-or...more
