AHOY ME HEARTIES!‘Deadstorm Pirates™’ FOR PLAYSTATION® 3 SETS SAIL FOR PLAYSTATION® NETWORK

CERGY-PONTOISE, FRANCE– 9 November 2010–  NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe prepares to splice the mainbrace and set sail on the hunt for buried treasure with the news that recent machine gun-wielding arcade gem Deadstorm Pirates is coming to PlayStation®Network in Europe this November for PlayStation®3, priced 19.99€ /£15.99.  The furious arcade action adventure game is fully compatible with the PlayStation®Move motion controller and G-con™3 gun controller.

Following its arcade release earlier in 2010, Deadstorm Pirates has assembled a hearty crew of fans around the world. In the game, players step into the shoes of valiant young swashbucklers and join forces to tackle hordes of vicious enemies and foul creatures of the deep in two player co-op arcade adventures.  The game offers loads of trigger-happy high seas action in solo play, but there’s even more fun to be had when you plunder and pillage with a trusty pal at your side.

Man the helm, navigate terrifying rapids, blast your endless-ammo rapid-fire machine guns into foes, despatch cannon balls at ship-shattering velocity and much more as you traverse the open seas in search of Poseidon's Treasure.  Climb up the global online rankings solo or with your faithful pirate partner to sort the truly fearless few from the cruise ship tourists.

Deadstorm Pirates will also be available on the Blu-ray Disc™ of TIME CRISIS™: RAZING STORM™ scheduled for European launch this November from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.
