Yesterday we mentioned the small fact of a new patch coming for Resistance 2. Among the welcome trinkets like Super human co-op mode was suggestion of a dual PSN log in ability, something bemoaned as flagrantly missing when the game launched last year.
Until now. With Insomniac claiming the ability to perform this very multiple log in feature coming March 26th with the Resistance 1.50 patch, and the fact that they’ve been waiting for Sony’s firmware to support the enhancement, it’s a safe bet to say that 2.70 is coming tomorrow.
Coming up with the goods once again, IGN have delved into inFamous’ much lauded Karma system with a couple of videos to hammer home how the game’s morality mechanism works.
Though Sucker Punch’s new game’s good and evil dilemma was something hinted at in the past, it is only now that we get an indepth understanding of just how the choices in the game will affect the player’s journey through a devastated Empire City.
Capcom has reassured gamers that the DLC, which introduces â€œVersus Modeâ€ to the popular title, is still “on track” and there is no risk of it getting delayed in Europe.
Just yesterday, the unfortunate news for people in Japan was that the content had been delayed for that region.
Prepare to resist, againWe might be transfixed with Killzone 2 at the moment but there is always room in our hearts for some other multiplayer goodness.
With Resistance 2 somewhat neglected around these parts of late, news of new free (and paid for) game content have us itching to square up against the Chimera once again.
Previous portents that multiplayer was coming to Noby Noby Boy appear to have been right on the money with a new teaser trailer featuring more than one BOY appearing over at the official PS blog.
Now that GDC09 is in full swing, expect to see new games coming out of the woodwork.
Only one day has passed and we already have a wealth of new titles to get our heads around with the likes of Ubisoft’s “R.U.S.E”, new studio Ivent Games’ “Strength of the Sword”, Boolat Games’ puzzle platformer “Topatoi” and some more that are so new, they don’t even have titles yet.
There are no two ways about it. The Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas X is big. Really big.
Having a sizeable peripheral could be seen as a boon or a millstone. If size is important to you, if lengthy and vaguely pornographic product names appeal and if having something substantial in both your hands when you play is important, you’re going to love the T.Flight Hotas X.
Thankfully, those aren’t the only things going for this mammoth device…
Why is it that quite often some of the best news comes in the form of replies buried in PlayStation Blog posts?
One interesting comment today came from CydoniaX, who is part of the North American Home team.
Crytek, creators of the Far Cry and Crysis games, have released a teaser trailer for their upcoming cryENGINE 3 multiplatform game engine.
We all know how beautifully Crysis looked on the PC (at least those capable of running the game at its full potential) so to see the engine for the first time on consoles is quite exciting.
The wait is over. The questions and theories can stop. Xi is here!
From today, you can download a new space called ‘The Hub’ which launches from the teleport in the Home Square/Central Plaza by the spray painted logo.
The Edinburgh Interactive Festival today confirmed that Gamestation will be the official retail partner for this year’s event.
Gamestation, one of the fastest growing retailers of video and computer games in the UK, confirmed its support for the public event and conference which will take place in Edinburgh between 10th and 16th August 2009.
We toyed with the idea of reporting Max Payne’s return in the over the top literary style so accustomed with the series.
Then we realised it would take too long.
Max Payne 3 will be released this winter on multiple platforms including the PS3.
The stage was set for our first Beat The Team session of 2009 on Saturday evening.
The game: Killzone 2; a 4-on-4 game in Radec Academy
The challenge: A clan battle with ThreeSpeech Regulars (TSR), who had battled Guerrilla Games two days earlier
The result: read on…
In Media Moleculeâ€™s latest podcast, they released some details for the next LittleBigPlanet patch, codenamed â€˜Cornish Yargâ€™.
As we have seen in previous patches, this is another type of cheese, and it brings a couple of new features.
Another week, another Twitterfest. Here are all the usual random musings, links and great people you should follow on Twitter, courtesy of our weekly tweet digest – enjoy!
PSU has some promising data on LittleBigPlanet. The game has been around for over 4 months now and over 650,000 levels have been created in total.
The game has a total of 1,935,000 online players, with an average of 35,373 levels delivered each week…
PS3 gamers have had to wait till the end of 2008 before award-winning Bioshock was ported over to Sony’s console.
Very little is currently known about the sequel, however, there are some new clues on Bioshock 2’s website.
Free, or not free, that is the question.
We won’t bore you with the history lesson.
Yes, the PSN is free. No, its nearest competitor’s online service is not. But in the great tradition of “there is no such thing as a free download”, news has erupted via MTV Multiplayer today that, since October 2008, Sony have been charging publishers with what accounts to an “overhead fee” for every gigabyte that you, the consumer, downloads from the PSN.
A new trailer for the upcoming PS3 exclusive inFAMOUS showcasing the electric powers of Cole McGrath, the hero or antihero of the game depending on the players actions.
Watch as he blows up cars, throws electrical bombs, and jumps around like Spider-Man, minus the spandex suit of course. Combine this with the vast world of Empire City and we imagine you’ll find plenty to do to pass the time. Check out the trailer after the jump…
