Videogame consultancy powerhouse The Powell Group today announced that the PlayStation® Store is now carrying themes featuring characters from Valiant Entertainment’s award-winning library of titles, including X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, Rai, Quantum and Woody, and Shadowman. The PlayStation® Store has just added these exciting new PlayStation 4 (PS4) themes to their offerings, and each Valiant theme is also available for the PlayStation3 (PS3). The Valiant Entertainment themes for PS4 allow users to view amazing art for Valiant Entertainment’s greatest heroes each time they boot up their game systems and are available for purchase now in the PlayStation® Store.
Press Release Publisher Aspen Comics, in partnership with The Powell Group, launched a series of custom PlayStation themes based on three of their popular series: Fathom, Soulfire, and Executive Assistant: Iris. Both the Fathom and Soulfire theme sets feature art exclusively by Aspen Comics founder Michael Turner with colors by Peter Steigerwald. The Executive Assistant: Iris theme set contains the work of pencilers Joe Benitez, Micah Gunnell, and Eduardo Francisco, with colors also by Steigerwald.
Sony made a smart move for a change by releasing the first episode of Powers on YouTube for all to see. The idea being you are going to love the episode so much that you’ll want to rush out and buy a PlayStation to see the rest of the series.
Those wondering what is up with the PlayStation series, Powers (based on the Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Avon Oeming comic series), get a little nugget of information today in the form of two actors who have joined the cast.
The trials and troubles that plagued the Powers television series meant that for a long time the hope of seeing the series actually make it to air (or cable) seemed impossible. It looks like we’ll be able to see the series this fall, when Sony releases the series on the PlayStation Network.
When FX passed on the Powers series, it looked like we would never get to see a live action adaptation of ‘Who Killed Retro Girl?’ but thanks to Sony’s vast distribution outlets, Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s series is going to get a life online.
