Calling All Cars due for release tonight!



Finally, after a month or so of doing the will-it-won't-it dance, David Jaffe's Calling All Cars has a set release date: Today! It will appear alongside Rampart (as promised) as part of the US PlayStation Store line-up tonight. There's no word on when it will be coming to Europe, but we're hoping it'll be within the next few weeks.

The full line-up for tonight is as follows:
  • Calling All Cars ($9.99)
  • Rampart ($4.99)
  • Warhawk video (free)
  • Burnout Paradise trailer (free)
  • Rampage video (free)
All in all, not a bad haul. You lucky Americans. No doubt we'll have a review up for Calling All Cars before too long. Until then, be sure to comment and let us know what you think. Enjoy!

1. Why hasnt there been a article posted about Sony's announcement to put Final Fantasy 7 and Tobal No.1 on the PSN. I would have thought that deserved some attention.

2. where are the DEMOS? come on sony get with it! i dont want videos that have been on the net for awhile. i want to be able to play some of the stuff you put in the store. thats one reason marketplace is successful, they have DEMOS. i have both systems and love them both, but i want to know whether or games are going to be worth buying before the come out, dont give me a demo the day the game comes out or two weeks after its out.

4. there should have been a MLB THe Show Demo, its coming out in less than a week, its first party, there is no excuse for it not being up.

6. @1 cool. i didnt know that. spikey hair, huge swords, nigths or the round summond. oh yeah

7. This is bull crap. yes calling all cars is cool but give us DEMOS!!! no one cares about trailers that can be seen all over the internet. Sony should be knocking down doors to make sure that there are demos for most games out there.

Also they need to get those stupid PScards or what ever they call it out in the states and Europe. they should realize by now that not everyone feels like giving them their credit card info.

Man I know that everyone is always saying give me this and give me that but until I hear an explanation as to why little things like letting us access the XMB from anywhere and other things that should of been there from DAY ONE, everyone will continue to bitch about it and make up stupid petitions.

8. while i agree that some more demos would be cool, i think many of you are missing the fact that this is a FREE service, they don't have to put squat up there. for every demo you play, there is a team behind the scenes that have to put the demo together and post it, this costs money. i'm stoked for Calling All Cars and look forward to more things later as the PSN develops. stop crying.

9. the game is UP by the way!!! it's fun!!!

Posted at 5:26PM on May 10th 2007 by a.j.

10. and then it disappeared...lol..ok, maybe this does suck.

Posted at 5:43PM on May 10th 2007 by a.j.

11. thatpspkid - i agree with your first and third paragraph, BUT your complain about lack of demos and stuff then say we need to get the cards out there? Why if theres nothing to buy with the cards.NOTE that you can use prepaid credit cards on PSN!

I dont want an explanation about the os, i just want them to fix it and move on to next problem/issue!

12. " i think many of you are missing the fact that this is a FREE service, they don't have to put squat up there."

YES they do... Because their primary competitor is doing all that and more on the XBox LIVE marketplace, and to get more people on board they need to at least match what the competition is doing. It's simply expected at this point.

13. End The WAR between blue ray and HDDVD so we all can stop being scared about buying either format.. Sign the petition to get Universal to support blue ray and watch HDDVD fall..

14. @13 i agree, they need to compete but my point still stands, you get what you pay for, and you aren't paying for squat. the reason XBL has more content is because people are shelling money into it left and right. i own both consoles and love them but i'm not gonna throw a fit because there aren't many demos on the PSN store.

Posted at 7:59PM on May 10th 2007 by a.j.

15. #15 I agree. MS pours so much resources into Live because IT IS a cash cow. Sony is also starting to see this with their PSN store. Also, Sony's Home seems to fill the void that Live leaves unless you're downloading something.

Everyone has such high expectations for Sony. Xbox has lots of movies and TV shows, lots of XBLA games too. Sure, it took MS almost a year.

I am impressed with what Sony has done in a small amount of time. This is why MS wanted at least one year lead before the release of the PS3.

16. Did you guys read this:
http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=13872

Seems like a great fit for the PS3, but Sony Online says it won't be on the PS3, just the PC.

Anyway, downloading Calling All Cars now. It'll probably take like 4 hours, given how incredibly, stupidly slow the PSN tends to be.

Posted at 8:20PM on May 10th 2007 by GRT

17. Its free fair point but i would rather pay like i do with microsoft and get a better service. Domt get me wrong i love my ps3 but not when it comes to online service why not make every game to download have a demo so u can try before u buy. And just because we are in the uk why do we have to wait, Microsoft dont.
Come on sony makes us happy

Posted at 8:22PM on May 10th 2007 by mark

18. Maybe US gets content on XBL but Australia sure doesn't we pay the same amount for the previlage of getting no content and then we miss out on arcade games for no reason, we have the worse download speed from their server about 4-30kb/s if we are lucky, so even if we get something on there to downoad it takes all freaking day!!! PSN is free, downloads fast and we eventually get the content that everyone else does... so please explain to me how paying for a service makes it any better... It's stupid i pay to play games online hosted on my own connect...how does that make sense.

Posted at 8:38PM on May 10th 2007 by Whubbsie

19. To #18, you have misleading the answer from Sony. At the question "Are there any future plans to integrate the Station Launcher on to the Playstation 3?" Sony told: "It’s not going to stop at the PC." ... So, this will be PS3 compatible in the future... Anyway, this is in their plan...

I don't know where you live, but in Canada, the Ps Store have increased speed some months ago... This is incredibly fast now! I can download 950mo in about 25 minutes! Not bad!

20. My downloads do not take very long at all. I'll usually set it to download in the background, start playing a game and then I take a break and remember I have downloads and they're all done.

I LIKE not paying. I am so tempted to get Xbox360 for Forza2 and the new Gotham Racing. But the red ring of death, and then having to pay? I would have to use a credit card, which I can't have, because I was very naughty, in my youth.

Which is why I want badly for Sony to bring the card to the states! You could walk into Gamestop/etc., drop $60, and get a crapload of games for the price of one game. And since I rent all my games, it's freaking perfect!

Oh wait. It WOULD be freaking perfect. I was talking in the future and stuff.
