Intellivision releasing three updated classics to PlayStation Home

Until the PlayStation Home announcement, their previous releases have been deliberate duplications of the original games.

Astrosmash, Shark! Shark!, and Night Stalker will release on the PlayStation Home this fall.

Astrosmash, Shark! Shark!, and Night Stalker will release on the PlayStation Home this fall, announced Intellivision Productions, Inc. All three games have been upgraded with new features and graphics.

The updated titles have been dubbed "Gen2" by Intellivision. Astrosmash, where players blast meteors and avoid enemies, will now feature more UFOs. The game will also have base weapon power-ups and more obvious difficulty level progressions. Gen2 of Shark! Shark! has updated puzzle patterns for fishy foes to swim through, as well as bonus rounds. Night Stalker has added more enemies and mazes to its game as well.

The Intellivision console, which featured 16-bit graphics, launched in 1980. Until the PlayStation Home announcement, their previous releases have been deliberate duplications of the original games with no additional features.
