Correction: The original version of this story stated that the open beta takes place this weekend.

CCP’s Free-To-Play person shooter tie-in to the Eve Online universe, Dust 514, will begin its first open  invite only beta on the PlayStation Network this weekend.

New Rainbow Moon Screenshots!

Posted on May 18, 2012 by Eric Bastelak

So there is this new turn based RPG coming exclusivly to the PSN Rainbow Moon, the game looks akin to Final Fantasy Tactics. So this could be very interesting, a turn based RPG with an epic story and world for me to discover?

Posted on May 8, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

We didn’t celebrate the anniversary of Sony’s founding yesterday (yesterday’s winners were announced by the way), so we’d like to wish a belated happy birthday to Sony.

First off, we’ll be giving away copies of Cubixx HD for the PS3. The codes for this PSN game may be found in articles on our site, or on twitter. You can find instructions for redeeming the codes here.

If there is a demand for it, we’ve got more codes for Cubixx HD as well as some PSP games that we could give out. Just let us know in the comments.
