Why Joe Danger: Special Edition tweaks are 360-exclusive

Hello Games: PSN patch would be "impractical".

Patching the various changes made to forthcoming Xbox Live Arcade release Joe Danger: Special Edition into the PlayStation Network original would be "impractical", according to developer Hello Games.

During a guest appearance on this week's Eurogamer podcast, studio boss Sean Murray explained that it just wouldn't make sense to bring the new content across to PSN as it radically alters how the game plays.

"The changes we've made - and I think people will understand when they've played the Special Edition - change the game in ways that I think would be really weird for us to bring over to PSN," he said.

Upload replays! Share levels! Hidden stuff!

Amiable Joe Danger developer Hello Games has released a gigantic patch for its little PS3 stunt-bike racer that lets you share replays and levels among other things.

Along with the ability to save, replay and upload videos to YouTube, you can share levels and use custom soundtracks, while you also get more multiplayer levels, new level editing props, costumes and "hidden stuff". Get in.

Shank and MotorStorm 3D in PSN update

Shank and MotorStorm 3D in PSN update

Plus MAG "Persistent Beta" and more.

Sony has updated the PlayStation Store with a range of treats including Shank, MotorStorm 3D Rift and a new "Persistent Beta client" for MAG.

Klei Entertainment's Shank, published by EA, came out on Xbox Live Arcade yesterday as well and costs 9.99 / 12.99 on PSN. You run around a vibrant 2D world killing people, which is alright with us.

MotorStorm 3D Rift, meanwhile, allows you to play 10 of Pacific Rift's tracks in 3D if you have the equipment. It's a free trial but then you need to fork over a tenner.

Hello Games announces Joe Danger

Motorbike stuntman for PC/PSN/XBLA.

Guildford-based indie outfit Hello Games has announced Joe Danger, a motorcycling stuntman game for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Due out next spring, Joe Danger sees you racing through an arcadey obstacle course collecting coins, D-A-N-G-E-R letters and performing tricks.

It's very bright and cheerful, as you can see from the official website, and looks more like the side-scrolling love-child of Tony Hawk and Pixar films than a pretender to Trials HD's time trial crown.
