Originally pitched to Microsoft and rejected, Ninja Theory’s Heavenly Sword became a PS3 exclusive. Speaking to CVG, Ninja Theory revealed just how hard it was for a small studio to turn a profit with an ambitious game like Heavenly Sword.
“It’s difficult. Heavenly Sword came out pretty early on the PS3, and we sold, I think, a million and a half copies, and that’s still not enough as an independent studio to break even,” said co-founder Tameem Antoniades.
“The publisher potentially breaks even at that point, but the developers don’t,” he added, and it’s for this reason that the developer chose to go multi-platform with its latest upcoming quest, Enslaved.
I think it’s extremely unfortunate that such a good game like Heavenly Sword didn’t sell more but it was released at the time the PS3 was still trying to get the attention of gamers. Sony’s lack of marketing the game didn’t help either.
Hopefully we’ll still see a sequel to Heavenly Sword.
Pretty good ad, but sadly no Kevin Butler. Does a good job of showing all the different things the PS3 can do. What do you think? Video after the jump because it auto plays ..
I added a new Help Video, which shows you how to access the Quick News on a mobile device. Basically you access the Quick News Category from the top menu.
The Incredibles DLC will be made available on the PlayStation Store April 8th. Included is a costume pack (with 9 costumes in all), as well as a level kit, that also includes a Gallery Level where you can pick up prize bubbles that contain all the stickers and materials used to create it, as well as a ton of “collectibles”. Individual costumes can also be bought separately. More details after the jump.

Looks like Rockstar Games has released the entire list for the available trophies in the game. You can see the entire list after the jump, but here are a few good ones:
Kill and skin 18 grizzly bears.
Fightin’ Around the World
Knock someone out in melee in every saloon in the game in Single Player.
Break the Kentucky Saddler, the American Standardbred, and the Hungarian Half-bred.
There’s also a trophy similar to the one Hustle Kings has, where you win the trophy from someone who already has it (starting with the developers), and in Red Dead Redemption, it requires you to kill that person, as opposed to winning in a game of pool . This is also one of those games where some of the trophies are only available by playing the game online (which I will be doing anyway), but I don’t think that online play should be a requirement for any trophies personally.
And I can’t wait until I kill and skin those 18 grizzly bears!
