thatgamecompany Goes Independent

The studio behind the PSN titles Flow, Flower, and Journey is parting ways with SCEA now that their contractual obligations are fulfilled. There doesn’t seem to be anything to worry about, as their next release will simply be multiplatform.

Studio co-founder Jenova Chen is excited about the company’s evolution, stating “This enables us to bring our games to more platforms and provide our players the highest quality experience at every point of contact.” And, considering the $5.5 million they’re getting from Benchmark Capital’s Mitch Laskey, who wouldn’t be. Chen also went on to say that news of their next release, which will be self published, should be out soon.

PSNFancast Episode 6 – Dumb in the Good Way

It’s a jam-packed week of releases on the PlayStation Network, and it’s up to Angelo Valdivia, Christopher Hague and host Josiah Renaudin to cover them all. The crew starts off with the PlayStation Move showpiece Sorcery and all of it’s motion-controlled goodness, move on to the wonders of Table Top Tanks, and attempt to explain the allure of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock. A few Sega Classics are discussed, but it doesn’t take long before Angelo jumps into Sega’s most recent release, Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2.

Journey somehow finds its way back into the conversation in the what we’ve been playing segment, but the PSN team quickly composes itself and tackles the hard-hitting news of the world. Plans to save the Vita from it’s poor start are soon constructed, with listener questions and comments answered before the show comes to a close.

I Am Alive Tops the PSN Charts in April

The latest issue of Pulse has detailed the top ten downloaded games on the PlayStation Network for the month of April. I Am Alive, the Ubisoft title all about surviving a dangerous and barren world, crawled to the top of the chart, beating out perennial contender Jouney. Interestingly, the season pass for The Walking Dead pushed more units than the $5 first episode, while Skullgirls once again proved that a quality combat system and fully female cast are difficult to ignore. Here’s the entire list:

  1. I Am Alive
  2. Journey
  3. The Walking Dead Season Pass
  4. Skullgirls
  5. The Walking Dead: Episode 1
  6. The House of the Dead 4
  7. Persona 3 FES
  8. Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection
  9. GTA: Episodes from Liberty City
  10. Escape Plan

Though the first five titles are new, original pieces of content, the next four are re-releases of popular classics. Any surprises make it into the top ten? Anything that belongs on the list but didn’t make the cut?
