According to this PS3F story, Sony has sent out a survey requesting opinion on how future Siren games should be delivered. From the piece:
The survey asks questions about Siren Blood Curse and asks people to rate various aspects out of 10. It also asks you whether you’d be willing to buy more games in the franchise in the future and how you’d like to receive them (either in one bunch, like Blood Curse or episodically.)
Discs are rubbish. If you received this, tell Sony so. Do the right thing.

Sony chap Kumi Yuasa’s posted a heap of handy play hints of Siren: Blood Curse on the US PS Blog, which will no doubt come in handy if you’re one of the many that found the game excruciatingly difficult.
Lots of good stuff there about taking out boss zombies and how to effectively use the sight jack system.
Take a look.

Speaking to MTV, Siren: Blood Curse Designer Keiichiro Toyama has admitted he’s a massive chicken. Working on horror products was clearly the best option then, you Japanese mentalist.
“I hate being scared,” he said. “I also wonder why humans like to be scared, however, [I] haven’t reached [a] clear answer yet.
“Some say it’s closely related to one of the substances inside the brain. I’d say the fear and the ecstatic feelings after you overcome the fear are essential functions in order for humans to live.”
More through there. Get another job, dude.

“At this time, there is not Blu-ray Disc version planned for the North American market,” said a rep.
“Please note, however, that you are able to delete and then re-download episodes since the purchase is linked to your PSN account. The developers kept this functionality in mind knowing that the episodes were fairly beefy.”

Sony horror Siren: Blood Curse is out next week, and to celebrate the firm’s released not one, not two, but 116 screenshots of preppy “kids” fighting the undead. Got to be worth a go, this. On CVG.

Famitsu’s posted up some new Siren screens, and it’s all looking reasonably disgusting. There appears to be a person there with egg pods on her face. Another has wings on his head. What warped Japanese madness is this?
The episodic horror’s out at the end of July in both Europe and Japan.

According to this ThreeSpeech preview of Siren: Blood Curse, the episodic horror will cost you 600Mb of hard drive per chunk. The game’s being split into 12 episodes.
Before you start squealing, though, you’re able to delete any episode and re-download it whenever you like. Alternatively you could just buy the English language version on Blu-ray from Japan. The choice is yours.
Game’s out this summer in America and Europe. Thanks, PS3F.

In a rather bizarre move, Sony has included English language support in the Asian release of Siren: Blood Curse, leaving the game open to import to Europe and the US.
The seems rather at odds with the firm’s decision to only release the game on Blu Ray in the Far East.
Sony recently scotched rumours in Edge magazine that we’d soon see the game in disc format over here.
The horror will be released overseas on July 24, according to Play-Asia.

SCEE’s blanked a rumour from the latest issue of Edge that says Sony Japan horror Siren: Blood Curse will be released on Blu-ray in Europe.
The mag mooted plans to released the game on a disc halfway through a planned 12-part PSN release.
“We haven’t announced any plans to release Siren on Blu-ray in Europe,” said a rep.
The game’s being released in its entirety on disc in Japan, but will only be available online in Europe from the look of it.
Siren’s releasing this “summer”.

On PS3F. We’re going to get a proper hands-on with the Sony Japan horror very soon, apparently, so we’re looking forward to that.
Siren releases episodically on PSN this “summer”.

Nice Siren Q&A up on the US PlayStation Blog with lead dev Keiichiro Toyama, in which the creator gives plenty of detail on the upcoming Sony Japan horror.
Sounds as though action’s not the way forward for the game, a notion that will no doubt delight some of you.
“A lot of survival horror titles in recent years have been focusing mostly on just the action element, while Siren Blood Curse puts a lot of its effort into scaring the player and presenting a rich story,” said Toyama.
“I think Siren Blood Curse can serve as an example of the diverse range that games are capable of expressing.”
Read the full thing through the link. The game will be released episodically in Europe this summer.

These new Siren screens on Gamefront show a female character in the game given to following you around and assisting you as needed. Awesome. The Sony Japan horror’s looking fantastic if these are anything to go by. We’re going to be getting proper time with this soon, so watch for impressions.
Siren: Blood Curse is being released episodically in Europe over this summer.

According to this Siliconera report, SCEJ horror Siren: Blood Curse will be released on Blu-ray in Japan, as opposed to being put out in 12 different episodes via PSN, as it will be in the US and Europe.
As you can imagine, this isn’t the best news for horror-loving gamers outside Japan. The pricing hasn’t been set for the episodes yet, but there’s a rather strong possibility it’ll be more than the £29.43 (5,980 yen) it’s going to cost in the Far East. In one go. On a disc. Call is a wild hunch.
