Doc Clock Coming to PlayStation Store

Yes that’s right; the Doc Clock universe will soon be available to everyone from PlayStation Store. This is your opportunity to join Doc Clock and his super sarcastic robot companion, SACK, on their first time-travelling adventure. Save Doc Clock’s pet cat Franklin from spending the rest of his life as a potted Cactus. Build incredible inventions, contort the flow of time and navigate a future controlled by armies of laughably dangerous techno-phobic hippy robots.

Now slow down a second… we’re talking about a pet cat… spending his life as a potted plant?! Yes! Well, “Catcus” is more accurate; Doc Clock’s inventions have been known to have a slightly limited safety track record. And by ‘slightly limited’ we mean nonexistent. Needless to say it was Doc Clock’s attempt to make the world’s most awesome ‘Toasted Sandwich Machine’ which resulted in Franklin mutating into a very prickly situation!

Money. It’s like a baby in a burning building or a snail in the middle of a busy sidewalk; pretty much everyone wants to save it.

Since nobody wants to be the jerk that steps on that poor, innocent snail, we (the fine people at Atlus) are dropping prices on our PlayStation Store library of PSP system titles, not unlike the PS Vita’s undocumented ability to drop smaller articles of sub-clothing. We’re calling it…

Want to own the complete PSP Persona collection, including Persona 3 Portable, which is tied for the second-best-reviewed PSP game of ALL TIME, according to Gamerankings.com? It is now far more affordable to do so. Also getting a drop in price is the very recent Persona 2: Innocent Sin, a stunning handheld remake of one our company’s most highly anticipated games!

Seems like we were just watching David Freese and the St. Louis Cardinals make a dramatic comeback to beat the Texas Rangers in 7 games to win the 2011 World Series. And now, here we are, standing in the on-deck circle of the 2012 season waiting to see who will step up and lead their teams into the playoffs and become this year’s World Series hero.

And, just in time for the opening series games between the Athletics and Mariners in Tokyo, all the Major League Baseball action can once again be watched with the new 2012 MLB.TV application for the PS3, now available on PSN.

Just like last season, the MLB.TV app gives you access to high-quality HD, live and archived games, home and away broadcasts, as well as an array of interactive features designed to take advantage of the PS3 system’s technical prowess.

playmemories studio

Back in January we announced that PlayMemories Studio was headed to the PS3 this spring and today it becomes available to all of you through the PlayStation Store. The new service is part of Sony’s PlayMemories suite, which helps you edit and share your high quality videos and photos on a variety of devices. You can also use PlayMemories Studio with your PlayStation Vita or PSP via Remote Play.

This new download allows you to fully manage your photos and videos straight from your PS3:

Organizing and Viewing: In addition to the videos and photos you store on your PS3, the content you store on cameras, external hard drives and USB storage devices can be viewed without transferring all of it to your PS3. PlayMemories Studio also allows you to easily search and sort the content by date or location.

Editing:
You can use action tags to add visual and sound effects, such as slow motion or frame-by-frame playback, to images.
