Brave new world
Housemarque's sublime Super Stardust HD was a flag bearer for 3D gaming on the PlayStation 3, so it stands to reason that it should get a PlayStation VR version, too. News has broken about this virtual reality edition via EB Games Australia's website – it'd be nice if Sony had said something about the release, wouldn't it?...
Worth a shot
There were no shortage of pub games on the PlayStation 3 by the end of its tenure as Sony's flagship format, and the PlayStation 4 is picking off right where its predecessor left off. Following the release of VooFoo Studios' pretty Pure Pool last year, the Japanese giant has decided to port Hustle Kings – ironically, also originally...
There was no mention of Hustle Kings in the latest European PlayStation Store update, but the pool simulator has quietly rolled onto the platform holder's online plaza in the UK. The free-to-play release, which is based upon the VooFoo developed PlayStation 3 title from a few years back, is available to download now, alongside various...
We’d love to be a fly on the wall at VooFoo Studios right now. The developer’s just released Pure Pool on the PlayStation 4, but Sony’s announced that it’s converting the outfit’s previous title Hustle Kings to the next-gen console – and it’ll be available for free. Even better, this version has been restructured around...
Hustle Kings knows it's up against a tough crowd
Like the similarly styled Top Darts, it's vying for attention against Uncharted: Golden Abyss and WipEout 2048 in the PlayStation Vita's launch line-up. What chance does a pub game simulation have against such blockbuster names? At first glance, not a whole lot — but Hustle Kings has the last laugh...
According to Sony Worldwide Studios Europe gaffer, Michael Denny, PlayStation Vita has "one of the best launch line-ups of any games console ever launched"
And based on the strength of the publisher's enormous first-party European launch line-up, we're struggling to disagree. Sony announced the line-up — which features the likes of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Wipeout 2048 and Modnation Racers: Road..
Sony's announced PUMA After Hours Athletes for PlayStation 3, a collection of the platform holder's best PlayStation Move-powered PSN titles collected together on one disc
The set includes Top Darts, Hustle Kings and High Velocity Bowling — each of which also include stereoscopic 3D support. The game's out later this year.
The PlayStation 3 already has a Hustle Kings game all its own, and the follow up Vita title in the series seems to be pretty much the same game, but with new touch and motion controls added on. Hustle Kings for PS Vita not only adds new controls, it also integrates with the PS3 version of the game, allowing Vita owners to go head to head...
No-one in their right mind should get excited over a pool game
Considering the NGP's stunning line-up, Hustle Kings should be the game that gets easily overlooked. But with the promise of a new interface and intriguing new multiplayer options, Hustle Kings is an important component of the NGP's line-up in spite of its dry subject matter. Touch...
When Hustle Kings launched on the PlayStation Network it promised glorious high-definition visuals with startlingly accurate ball-physics
And it delivered. Hustle Kings on the NGP is promising much of the same, with rear- and front-touch controls adding to the immersion of the experience. If it has the online gambling mechanic of its home console sibling, we'll be there day-one.

We've always imagined that VooFoo's already-quite-good pool simulation title, Hustle Kings, would be better with added PlayStation Move stabbing motions
Turns out, we might have been right. Maybe? Nah, in all honesty, the Move implementation looks kinda wonky; going by the po0r fools in the above trailer anyway. But whatever, it's a free update...

Embedded is the shot that changed our life
Well it would of done, if we were playing for real money. As it happens, in Hustle Kings you're just competing for credits, but damn, when 10,000 of those are on the table (like there were when our Sammy made that shot), you feel the pressure. Hustle Kings is one of the more complete PSN games in a long...

Let's be honest, pool games are exceptionally fun if they are bought at the right price
Sometimes developers try to build a full package out of a pool games and it doesn't quite seem worth it; but with the explosion of the PSN we've always been in hope of a really great pool game. We thought Inferno Pool had filled that hole, but given our...
