Pixeljunk developer Q-Games has expressed its hope for a resurgence in core games going into the next generation. Studio president Dylan Cuthbert isn’t just talking about Call of Duty though, but proper, innovative ‘gamer’s games’ that can sell for more than a low digital asking price.

Q-Games’ president, Dylan Cuthbert, believes Nintendo is need of “super IP, a special IP” in order to get more consumers interested in Wii U, and in order for Microsoft to carve out a slot in the Japanese market, it needs to reinvent itself.

The beta for PixelJunk 4am is live for PS Plus members. Those with a Move and a beta code can now join in on the early, limited access beta which for now only features one visualiser and one song. You can download the Free 4am Live Beta Viewer even if you don’t have a Move controller in order to stream everyone’s beta performances. During the tester, Q-Games will host “some special live performances from around the world,” including DJ Baiyon performing live from Japan. The game releases in May with 7 songs and 6 visualisers with 38 variations, 10 events and over 190 different sounds.

Q-Games finally has a release date for its latest gloriously 2D effort.

A blast of piping hot news right to your face, the highlight of which is a crossover of Metal Gear Solid and the board game RISK.

Q-Games has announced its renamed PixelJunk Lifelike, dropping the Lifelike subtitle for 4am. Bayion, collaborator on the game, said the reason for the name switch is because it “represents the exact mood and feeling we’ve captured. 4am is that deep night hour. In clubs, the music drifts to a new level entering a deepened state that often seems removed from reality,” adding it’s “something unique that has never been tried before.” Get the new trailer for it below the break, via Joystiq.

Q Games has released a brand new trailer of PixelJunk Sidescroller, showing the game’s retrotastic looks. There’s some nods in there too for PixelJunk Shooter as well, so it’s all good. It looks kinda cool, so give it a watch below the break, via the US PS Blog.
Still no date yet for the game, but this year on PSN is probably a fair assumption.

Q announced PixelJunk SideScroller last night, despite the fact the game didn’t make an appearance in the Sony press conference. Check out some screens below. It has local two-way co-op and looks pretty much like something from 1995 with modernity forced right up it, as is Q’s wont. There’s no date. There is, however, a video.
