Angry Birds Trilogy coming to consoles with Kinect & Move support

This year, one of the world's most beloved trilogies comes to an end. The Dark Knight Angry Birds Trilogy will be available on PS3, Xbox 360, and 3DS this holiday.

Teased at E3 as "Angry Birds HD," the Trilogy puts the original Angry Birds, Seasons, and Rio on one retail disc/cartridge. "Built from the ground up" for HDTVs, this enhanced remake will include "new cinematics" and extras presented in HD.

Okami HD made by Rez HD dev with Capcom

The announcement of Okami HD last week was certainly jolly exciting, but one question was unanswered: who exactly is making it? Fear not, the port of Clover's PS2 classic is in safe hands, being tarted up by Rez HD revamper Hexa Drive.

Okami HD announced for PS3 with Move support

Okami HD announced for PS3 with Move support

Clover's delightful 2006 paint 'em Okami is coming to PlayStation 3 via PlayStation Network, reborn in HD resolution with optional PlayStation Move support as Okami HD.

Okami, if you missed the original PS2 game, its Wii port, and the semi-sequel Okamiden for DS, is an action-adventure-y affair about the sun god Amaterasu coming down in wolf form to restore a ruined world. Armed with the mighty Celestial Brush, you draw characters and glyphs to influence the environment and attack foes. You can control this with the regular controller in Okami HD, like in the original, or whip out your PlayStation Move wand to slap down some ink.

Sorcery review

Sorcery review

While PlayStation Move represents some undeniably impressive tech, it's yet to find a true "killer app" that demonstrates its unique motion tracking capabilities. Enter Sorcery, a Move-exclusive adventure game developed by The Workshop. First showcased at E3 2010 as a marquee Move title, the long-in-development title is finally available. Sorcery grants you a virtual wand, letting you cast spells with a flick of the wrist.

Sorcery is a rare example of a game that's made genuinely better by motion controls. With illuminated orb in hand, it's hard not to feel like a wizard as you switch between elements with cleverly designed gestures. Unfortunately, while the game feels great to control, Sorcery launches with many shortcomings.

Portal 2 adding PlayStation Move support, new levels later this year

Portal 2 adding PlayStation Move support, new levels later this year

Not many players could access the Sixense MotionPack DLC for Portal 2. Why? Because it required the Razer Hydra PC Gaming Motion Sensing Controller, which costs well over $100. It was an expensive proposition for just ten levels of new Portal 2 content.

There's a new way to access that content, however. It will be available on PS3 later this year, thanks to an upcoming patch which will add PlayStation Move support to Valve's critically acclaimed puzzle shooter.

Sports Champions 2 preview

Sports Champions 2 preview

Sports Champions didn't ignite the game world like Wii Sports did, but it was a capable showcase of PlayStation Move's accuracy. Games like Frisbee golf and table tennis showed off how well the Move could translate 3D movement. Unfortunately, while the games controlled well, Bocce and beach volleyball aren't quite the most exciting games to feature in a sports compilation.

Zindagi's sequel features far more iconic sports, with boxing and skiing the first sports to be announced. Unfortunately, while they're far more "exciting," they aren't quite as good at showing off Move's accuracy.

How LittleBigPlanet Karting is different from ModNation Racers

How LittleBigPlanet Karting is different from ModNation Racers

LittleBigPlanet Karting is a kart racing spin-off of the popular PlayStation platformer. It takes the Play, Create, Share spirit of the original game and throws it into an entirely new genre. But wait, hasn't this been done before?

It has, with ModNation Racers. And oddly, United Front Games--developer of ModNation Racers--is behind this project as well. Given a similar premise and an identical graphics engine, how could LittleBigPlanet Karting possibly differ from United's first PS3 racer?

Sony patents strange Move peripheral

The PlayStation Move is a bizarre little device to start with, with its glowing ball and tiny buttons. But Sony has found how to make it way weirder, with an add-on peripheral that makes it resemble a large wheel and change shape like a Transformer. For some reason.

PixelJunk 4am beta begins May 1st; full release on May 15th

Q-Games' next PixelJunk project isn't really a game. Instead, it's a music appreciation app that utilizes the PlayStation Move.

Originally called PixelJunk lifelike, PixelJunk 4am finally has a release date: May 15th. The app will be available in two flavors: a full release, and a free viewer that allows you to watch--but not create--live performances.

Epic Mickey 2 developed by Blitz Games on PS3 and Xbox 360

Much like the joint effort planned between Oswald and Mickey Mouse in Epic Mickey 2, it appears that developer Junction Point is getting some cooperation from another studio--Blitz Game Studios--to port the game to the PS3 and Xbox 360.

A spokesperson from Disney told Shacknews: "DEM2 is being developed much like a feature film with a different studio contributing to the development of the game. It's a full partnership between Junction Point and Blitz with one creative leadership team and one creative vision."

Datura not a game, but 'an interactive experience'

Datura not a game, but 'an interactive experience'

In recent years, titles like Dear Esther, have been pushing the boundaries of what players have typically expected from a "game." Linger in Shadows dev Plastic is exploring similar territory with their new release, Datura. Game director Michal Staniszewski describes their upcoming PlayStation Move title as an "interactive experience, rather than a game."

"We wanted players to feel like he's inside it and this is not a story about some kind of character."
