Hello poker fans! I hope everyone has had the chance to play our game, High Stakes on the Vegas Strip: Poker Edition. We are pleased to announce that we will soon provide a free video capability add-on which allows up to six players to see and hear each other with real-time simultaneous audio and video. I believe this has never been done on any console title before.
The game works with USB cameras, the EyeToy, and the PLAYSTATION Eye, which is my favorite. This feature is especially cool for poker, since you may get a read on your opponents through facial expressions, body language, or conversations. It’s also just great fun to see the people you are playing against.
Surprisingly, people always ask, “Are there people to play with online?” The answer is a resounding YES. High Stakes is not only offered in North America, but Europe and Asia as well. We have been pleased with the level of player interest which is why we are motivated to keep adding features and games for everybody playing the title. We’ve expanded the game with two previous add-ons that now provide ten of the most popular poker games out there, including No Limit Hold’em.
We also support the Remote Play feature “out of the box” on High Stakes, which works really well with a game like this. You may want to hook up the camera control (which is on the second analog on the PS3) via the settings. You can even join online games while playing remotely on your PSP with little-to-no lag. Now you will also be able to view the video-enabled games on your PSP via remote play!
For all those who have downloaded the game, we thank you and hope you enjoy the new video feature. And for those who haven’t – download it already!
