Few would argue that 2011 was one of the best years for exclusive PlayStation software
The growth of Sony's Worldwide Studios resulted in a new blockbuster release for almost every month of the year; a feat that was always going to be difficult to replicate in 2012. But while 2012 might not live up to its predecessor in terms of pure content quantity, we're certain Sony's still got a surprise or..
If you know your Wham
's from your Duran Duran's, then you're probably going to love SingStar: Back To The 80's. The latest in a long-line of Studio London developed SingStar spin-offs brings a collection of favourite eighties tunes to the PS3, transforming your console into a home karaoke system with more make-up than Boy George. We're all-in for Bette Davis Eyes. Tracklist<table..
New footage from Sony Studio London's canned Eight Days has bizarrely emerged on YouTube this afternoon
The game — which was described as jaw-dropping by ex-employees recently — was cancelled in 2008 due to spiralling development costs and a refocusing of first-party projects within Sony Worldwide Studios. The footage itself appears to be based on an old build of the game, presumably..
We've only ever wanted to buy one song from SingStar's in-game DLC store: Caribbean Queen by Billy Ocean
That makes us lightweights. According to a report on Eurogamer, there are several players that own more than 900 SingStar tracks. That roughly equates to about £1,000 worth of content. Similarly, Sony noted that there are hundreds of players with more than 500 songs. That's still a reasonable..
Any clue what SingStar: Back To The 80s might be about? It's not hard really. Do you give up? Ok we'll tell you: it's a brand new SingStar game comprising 80s songs. How did you not get that? There'll be 30 songs included on the new Blu-ray title, including... Well, we don't know yet because Sony's yet to announce the full roster but if we were to guess there would be some Blondie, A-Ha,..
Early into the PlayStation 3's life, one of Studio London's in-development titles, Eight Days, looked like a life-line for the addled system
The game — which depicted a sensational desert shoot-out in its opening trailer — was cancelled in 2008. But developers that worked on the game have told Eurogamer that what was in development was "jaw dropping". The news comes via ex-Studio..
A Sony development team in London has started work on a video game adaptation of bonkers Bollywood sci-fi flick, RA
One</a>. The game will release on both PlayStation 2 and PS3, the latter as a PSN download. Presumably the game will be exclusive to the expanding Indian markets. "We have always wanted to bring Bollywood IPs on the PlayStation platform as the way..
Days before E3 there was a lot of speculation about Sony publishing a new dancing game for the PlayStation 3
Just for the record: Studio London is concocting a new title called DanceStar Party — Sony just forgot to mention it until today. Naturally the game will have PlayStation Move support, as evidenced in the title's first trailer after the jump. The game's obviously born out of the SingStar..
Every once in a while a franchise comes along that you love in spite of its gameplay
The Getaway is one of those franchises. Its early incarnations are near unplayable due to shoddy controls and poor level design, but they are still amongst some of our favourite games on PlayStation. It's mostly to do with the setting. The Snatch-inspired British gangland theme depicted in the original games is..
Syphon Filter 4, guys
We've waited so long for this moment, and now it seems like Sony has revealed the great announcement prematurely. It's a shame really, because this announcement would have been a huge surprise at Sony's E3 press conference. But as the old saying goes, "leaks happen". The news popped up on the PlayStation Blog but was pulled moments later. That didn't stop outlets..
We loved the original EyePet
Admittedly the technology was a little bit fiddly in places, but the augmented reality worked great and it genuinely felt like a fresh and new experience. As such, we're pretty stoked to see the PlayStation Move-enabled series get a fresh new PS3 release. The new game — due out later this year — doubles the trouble, allowing you to simultaneously raise two EyePets..
A report on GamesIndustry
biz</a> has revealed that Sony has opted to close a "small number of projects" at its UK studios. The shift in resources is set to take place at Evolution Studios, Studio Liverpool and Studio London. Media Molecule are reportedly unaffected, while Studio Cambridge were not mentioned. It has been decided that production on a small number of projects..
In Europe, SingStar is amazing
That's because the SingStore is packed with piles and piles and piles of good karaoke DLC. In the US, SingStar is less amazing. That's because there's hardly any great DLC across the pond. Thanks to a deal between Sony and Universal Music, that's all set to change. As Sony moves towards parity between the two regions, they'll be adding a whopping 64 songs to the US..
If you're in the US and have children, you might want to head down to your local Toys 'R' Us
The retailer's carrying an exclusive PlayStation Move bundle that contains the PlayStation Eye camera, PlayStation Move controller and a copy of EyePet: Move Edition. Seeing as EyePet's probably one of the best family games we've ever played, you might want to take the opportunity to snap this bundle up..
We've never danced to Ricky Martin's "Livin' La Vida Loca" before, and we never want to
But we suppose we're going to have to review SingStar: Dance, and that means we might actually have to. Oh motion controllers — this is the reason you're universally hated? Seriously though, SingStar: Dance does look like a neat party game. Obvious comparisons are being drawn to Microsoft's Dance Central..
Today is the day of reckoning
Just a year after the PlayStation 3 Slim's launch here in Europe, Sony's got another big day ahead of them. The PlayStation Move is out in the wild, and Sony's let some of the big publications go knee-deep with impressions. On the whole, everything's looking pretty positive for Sony's motion controller. Joystiq describe the hardware as a "resounding success,"..
I want to play The Getaway
The initial set-up is fantastic; placing you in a red Rover 75 with a motley-crue of cockney shade-masters. "Who's the bird?" exclaims the appropriately named "Eyebrows", in his thick LDN tones. Across the road, a lady in a tight leather jacket sprints towards the passenger seat of the car. She flicks open the door and slams it behind her. "I..
DC Comics (and with them their host of world famous IP) have finally jumped aboard ship PlayStation Digital Comics. Starting today, DC will begin distributing the massive collection of comics via the PlayStation Network, with an initial selection of over 80 comics priced from $0.99 to $2.99. Some of the offerings include Batman, Superman,...
Sony's updated the already excellent PlayStation Portable Digital Comics Reader
The update to 2.01 brings the ability to quickly delete titles from your collection, aswell as browse titles by publisher and automatically sort by genre. Nice. An additional feature allows you to move seamlessly between comics in a series if you own more than one. Interestingly, support for Japanese Manga has been..
Sony has revealed the first details regarding SingStar: Dance and SingStar: Guitar; the latest spin-offs in Studio London's SingStar franchise
The news comes via an interview with SingStar's producer Jonathan Mead, who explains the theory behind the spin-offs. "These titles will allow four people to be involved in the game, all at the same time. This is a very big and exciting thing for..
Sony's confirmed that their under-rated augmented reality release, Eye Pet, is headed to the PlayStation Portable
Looks like there are a host of familiar features to the PlayStation 3 version. This actually looks super cute and we kind of want it. We love the PS3 version of the game. If only Sony dropped the price of the PSP, we're convinced a good bundle of this would literally fly off shelves.
Hold us. Alongside their weekly update, team SingStar's revealed "some very exciting announcements from SingStar at this weeks E3." This wouldn't have anything to do with a little rumour we posted earlier would it? That's right, sounds like SingStar: Dance is on the cards. We like some SingStar, so in normal circumstances we'd be hyped. But...
SingStar's a bit like the gift that keeps giving
For years Sony's karaoke platform has evolved - delivering iteration upon iteration to its core, yet somewhat niche, fanbase. And Sony's showing no sign of stopping that support with the addition of Vibrato. The new feature will allow you to pull your best Leona Lewis and actually score points for fluctuating held notes, rather than being penalised -..
Still playing SingStar? The likelihood is yes, it's definitely the best karaoke game on consoles
Thus you'll be delighted to hear that Sony and Studio London have a new free update in the pipeline for you: Online Battle Mode. Here you'll be able to send invites to your friends and challenge them to a song performance. Both players will need to own the song in question, but if you do you'll even be..
Sony's decision to bring comics to the Playstation Portable has always been something that's stuck us as interesting
Interesting because we're not entirely sure who the move is aimed at. Hardcore comic fans will surely prefer reading their superhero gossip on paper; and will casual comic readers care enough to download them to their PSP? These are...
Sony have just announced that their specialist karaoke franchise has now topped 20million units sold
The franchise began in 2004 and has seen numerous versions over the past 5 years, right up to the latest Take That themed release. We expect a Michael Jackson SingStar will be on the cards for early next year, with the franchise completely free to go as specialist as it likes in the future. Sony..
Those of you who have download firmware 6
20 for your PSP will be aware of the new "Extras" tab on the PSP's XMB. This is a new section used to contain Sony's upcoming Digital Comics service. The Playstation Store won't be offering comics until next month, but Sony are eager to let fans check out the service a little early. All you need to...
There's a patch headed to Sony's karaoke title, SingStar, according to the European Playstation Blog
The patch is going through QA right now, and is due for release on December 1st. It'll fix a ton of problems caused by Patch 4.20, like stopping the game from deleting SingStore DLC off your HDD, etc.
Eye Pet is a massive risk
It's possible we could be playing Eight Days or The Getaway 3 this weekend. Sony pursued Eye Pet - an innovative implementation of augmented reality - instead. Given the platform, and its audience, Eight Days would probably sell better. And that shows just what a risk Eye Pet is. But could it expand the audience? When Nintendogs launched on the Nintendo DS, it was the..
The adorable Eye Pet launched today across Europe
If you haven't got your hands on a copy yet, maybe it's time you seriously considered picking up the title. We gave it a 4/4 in our review a couple of weeks back, admiring the game's sense of style, and genuinely innovative gameplay. If you need any more convincing, check out our exclusive hands-on with Eye Pet after the jump.

In an interview regarding Eye Pet, Sony Studio London's Nicolas Doucet has confirmed that while the companies focus switched to SingStar and Eye Pet recently, previous Playstation 3 titles The Getaway 3 and Eight Days have not been canned, merely put to the side
He says:"I would not say they have been abandoned, just put to one side. Much work had been done. The studio just wanted to focus on..

We're already feeling the difference here at PushSquare
Games are coming thick and fast now. While many have been delayed, there are still plenty of excellent games due for release in Q4, 09. We take a look at our five most anticipated. 5. Eye Pet (Playstation 3) We're sure Eye Pet is the last title people would expect to see on our most anticipated list, but the innovative virtual pet essentially..
The more we hear about Eye Pet, the more we're starting to get excited
We hope Sony push the game, because we think it really could be a big deal for families and kids. Get it in stores, get kids some hands on time. Not only is the Playstation 3 great for Mum & Dad's movies, but remind them that kids will have access to stuff like Eye Pet. At a retail price of $39.99 - $59.99 with the..
Something we've hinted at in regards to the rumoured Playstation 3 Slim is a total image rebrand for the Playstation platform
Cue your new look boxart - in this case Eye Pet, which skips on the vertical "Playstation 3" banner keeping the Spidey font to a minimum. With Playstation 3 Slim expected to be announced at GamesCom tomorrow, we wouldn't be surprised if Sony detailed their whole..
One game that's not caught the 2009-flu is Eye Pet, as Joystiq are reporting that the game will be available this Holiday 2009
Hurrah! Variety. Studio London's clever virtual-pet type release aims to deliver on Natal's promises a year early without the hype. According to Joystiq the game will be available as a stand alone release or bundled with the Playstation Eye camera. Seems like Sony are..

They claim the game will release November 13th with or without additional microphones. Interestingly the site are also speculating that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will launch September 30th with Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time following in..
Eye Pet looks like it's going to be massive fun for kids
Drawing objects, scanning them in and taking control of them within the game sounds really exciting. We can't wait to see how people take to this game because it looks like enormous fun.
The rhythm-music genre is never (ever) content with not pumping out another sequel
And SingStar: Take That is absolutely no exception. Set to launch later this year you'll be whipping out the ol' Singstar mics to bawl Gary Barlow's ballads on the Playstation 3 or Playstation 2. Let it shine.
It's a shame to see Peter Molyneux's adventurous yet clearly entirely preposterous Milo demo steal the headlines that Eye Pet deserved a year ago
Here in this trailer you can see a clan of children interacting with the adorable Eye Pet in a range of ways. It's clearly not aimed at gamers like, well, us, but it still looks very cool.
