PlayStation Network Releases: September 27th – Video Unlimited, Rochard, Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD
Available September 27th, 2011 — Sony unveils it’s new video service, the PSN exclusive Rochard, and Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD.
It could very well be the first look at what Sony has planned for its eventual revamp of the PlayStation Store sometime down the pipeline, but for now it’s just a new addition (along with the other additions we mentioned before) to the video section on your PlayStation 3, that for the time being, is only available to PlayStation Plus members. Branded the “Video Unlimited — preview” App – the handy application gives users a simpler means to browse, search and discover their favorite movies and TV shows.
Sleek, stylish, and kinda like The Matrix (okay maybe not), managing through the library of more than 40,000 movies and TV episodes has never been so simple or at least that’s the impression from previewers (click here to see it in action.) And hopefully, we’ll soon learn when the Video Unlimited app will be ready to download for the rest of the PlayStation Nation.
Now onto something more compelling to everyone, games. This time it’s a PSN exclusive title by Recoil Games called Rochard. Astro-miners, gravity guns, and side-scrolling action in one digital package — it’s here certainly all here, as you play the role of John Rochard, who must fend off space bandits by using said gravity gun to drop nearby objects on them like an anvil on a cartoon character.
Which actually makes sense just looking at that cartoonish visual style — and quite cool it is as well, almost Bionic Commando: Rearmed-esque. There is a demo for Rochard on the storefront, if said description has you interested but if your looking for something more gritty then there’s part two of the 15th anniversary party for Resident Evil, with Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD.
Released on the Sega Dreamcast, Code Veronica is the fourth installment in Capcom’s survival horror series and serves as a side-step of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis’s traits in terms of fixed-corner camera angles that were abandoned in Resident Evil 4 (released last week too!) It’s still an interesting game to explore though, and really expands the narrative of the series — giving more background information about the Umbrella Corporation.
All the amenities that were given to Resident Evil 4 HD are present in this version, with polished HD graphics and trophy support that make this a perfect get for any Resident Evil fan who hasn’t managed to play the original.
