Gamers Heart Japan is a TV Special airing this weekend in the USA and Canada. It features a great long list of video game developers talking about how Japan has influenced the world of gaming, and how much we all love them.
It’s not just a random show of course, its aim is to raise awareness (and cash) for the Red Cross Appeal.
Members of the global videogame community have come together in an unprecedented effort to create a special video to show their appreciation for the Japanese games industry and to raise awareness for Red Cross relief efforts for the people of Japan.
Titled “Gamers Heart Japan”, this 60-minute special will premiere on April 3, 2011 on broadcast networks G4 in the U.S. and Canada, SCI FI Australia, and Musique Plus and SPACE in Canada as well as online. This special is filled with veteran game industry journalists from all over the world as well as some of the top game makers on the planet who will be sharing their thoughts on the incredible work and talented creators from the Japanese videogame development scene.
The show features gaming luminaries such as Will Right, Ken Levine, and our very own Siobhan Reddy! You can find more info over on the Gamers Heart Japan website

It is without doubt the most fearsomely impressive moustache available for Sackboy to so far. We took the time to compare it alongside some of the most well known (and not so well known) moustaches from throughout history. The results speak for themselves: It is indeed, the most awesome moustache we’ve ever seen. Even if we do say so ourselves :)
Rumours say that the fearsome Davy Jones and his mighty Kraken have come to LittleBigPlanet to wreak havoc and claim some sack folk to serve as Davy’s Crew. Once again, it’s going to fall to Sackboy to locate the only ship on LittleBigPlanet that has any chance of sending him back to the bottom of the sea.
Head deep into the Caribbean to battle The East India Trading Company and Pirates alike, find the legendary ship and take on the Kraken. This new kit features a set of six swashbuckling levels, each containing a treasure trove of stickers, decorations, materials, music objects and 11 new trophies.
Find out all about it over on LittleBigPlanet.com where we’ve uploaded videos, screenshots, trailers, renders, wallpapers, and all kinds of useful snippets of info!

Today on the Playstation Store – Mm Music Pack1, three brand new fully interactive tracks to enhance your levels with!

Mm Music Pack 1 £2.39 / €2.99 / US $3.99
- Tea By The Sea by Mat Clark

- A selection of themed stickers, see below!
Coming to the Playstation Store this week is a new type of pack for LittleBigPlanet – an original music pack! Three brand new fully interactive tracks to enhance your levels with. Here’s our audio guru Kenny to tell us more about them…
These three new interactive tracks each offer something a little bit different to the music that is already available within the LBP universe. ‘Well Trained’ is a blues number, ‘Wise Owl’ is an ambient electronic type t’ing and ‘Tea By The Sea’ is, er, beyond description – it’s kinda Anglo-French Americana. Or something. You need to hear it to know what I mean, but it’s probably my favourite track.
They were all written by Mat Clark at Sonica Studios – Mat wrote most of the original interactive music in LBP (which won a couple of GANG awards for ‘Best Interactive Score’ and ‘Best Instrumental’, not forgetting a BAFTA nomination!), so you know the kind of awesomeness to expect.
Have fun using them in your levels!
Thanks Kenny! Now, as good as descriptions are, when it comes to music there’s nothing like actually hearing the tracks is there? That’s why we cobbled together this preview little video. Mm Music pack 1, coming October 8th priced £2.39 / €2.99 / US $2.99 $3.99 (price corrected).
Oh, it also comes with a few music themed stickers too!
