Does anyone know when the socom beta starts?
I take it they're not in the banner this week. Is that David Reeves shopped onto the zombies body? I missed the lulz. :( PEACE.

Have they said if they will do some kind of scaling price on Siren. Say if I buy episode 1 tonight and then if I like it and want to buy the rest will I be able to buy 2-4 for maybe $35?

Edit: Don't buy Qore for the R2 beta you can get in by preordering the game.

Shouldn't Eden be listed under "games" as well?

If it came out today. but it's just the demo.

Oh. and PJE WILL [if there isn't a delay anywhere] be released WORLDWIDE that's including Europe

From ps.blog

Wow.. what a huge response to my blog entry today!

To answer a few of the queries, the July 31st release date is worldwide (touch wood), I think this even means Australia.

This is NOT the last game in the series, by a long shot. However, we are going to be secret - we actually work on a lot of ideas and already have a “lost work” (ie. a title we cancelled halfway through development because it just wasn’t working the way we wanted it to)

I also heard there will be another blog entry tomorrow with some more info from the team at Santa Monica.

Oh and there will be a demo for the EU store too for a change! (a first for a PixelJunk game)
I think that will go up simultaneously with the full game next week.


I really can’t see anyone not buying it after playing the demo ;-)
(but I am bound to say that, right?)

Thanks for the TON of fan-mail we have been getting by the way - I try to answer most of them directly but if some got missed I apologize.

I didn't use the silhouette, but they're in there.

Correction: US version of Siren has 3 Chapters.
(EU version has 4. Both has 12 Episodes)
Thanx

I thought something looked odd about that.

Hmm...Qore seems to be paying off a bit. Naruto, Socom and Resistance betas, DC Universe stuff and Lego Batman. All makes me happier about the 25 bucks spent.

Other then that not much this week. Not to interested in Eden.

Thanks. I thought the color on the arm was a bit too vibrant for Siren, but I couldn't tell the face. First one I haven't gotten. :( PEACE.

And and because it's required of all PSN fanboys like myself: ZOMG PIXELJUNK EDEN!!!1 :D
