U.S. PSN Video Content For June 26th – His Name Was Jason…

And today he gets the same movie made. Again. Can you believe it has been almost 29 years since the original Friday The 13th? And can you believe that technically the same movie has been made now twelve times? Leave it to American cinema not to let a franchise age like fine wine, but more like fancy milk.

New Ratchet Weaponry makes us wish it was Autumn already

The Mag-Net Launcher. The Spiderbot Glove. The Tesla Claw. Where would Ratchet be without such imaginative and devastating weaponry?

With new episode A Crack in Time due for release this fall, the question of what new weird and wonderful additions to the plucky Lombax’s arsenal has been on everyone’s lips.

New high-quality (read: big, real big) renders of some new weapons have been released and, as always, we’ve got your back.

PSN and Cloud; a viable alternative to illegal downloads

The PlayStation Network looks set to expand across non-gaming devices in the near future, and it seems that Sony are looking for the PSN to play a part in helping provide a viable alternative to illegal downloads.

In a recent article by Fortune, extensively detailing the current executive strategies Sony are undertaking, you can clearly understand the importance of the PlayStation Network to the Japanese consumer electronics giant.

Let’s take a closer look at some of their recent statements.

Firmware 3.0 to be “a completely new system”

Promising to be “a completely new system”, it appears that the PS3 is about to get its very own “New Experience.”

Highlights of the new firmware release include the oft-mooted Reputation System where gamers can evaluate the prowess of other players as well as a “Grief Reporting” mechanism.

Tecmo confirm Ninja Gaiden Sigma II demo

Ninja Gaiden Sigma IIStraight from the “short and sweet” drawer, Team Ninja and Tecmo have confirmed that a demo for upcoming Ninja Gaidan II “re-imagining” Sigma will see a demo unleashed on the PSN before its eventual release this fall.

Speaking at a press event in London, the tentative month of September is quoted as when eager PS3 fans will be able to get their first taste of the “new and improved” ninja story.

New Brutal Legend Trailer

By now, if you don’t know about Brutal Legend, we would like to be the first to welcome you out from under your rock.
Long story short, Jack Black is a roadie who gets shunted into another world.
To set the scene and give us all a taste of the sort of humour to expect, Jack has provided us with the 3rd in his series of, erm, unique videos.

North American PS Store Update For June 25th – We’re Cool Man

With nothing to apologize for or explain, the PlayStation.Blog.US sends another solid update our North American way. We hear Europeans are not very happy with the ‘hey, what are ya gonna do?’ response from the European PSB.

We are confident that they will pull through and offer some great content in the future. We also hope they do in the very, very near future lest the people revolt and start playing ColecoVision or something.

PlayStation Home in numbers and statistics

No Homerun this week because there basically is very little to report on. However, there is an interesting article from Gamasutra who have spoken to Peter Edward, director of the PlayStation Home platform for SCEE.

Since launch, PlayStation Home has been downloaded seven million times, three million of those are from Europe, and a total of six million virtual items have been downloaded.

Happy Two Year Anniversary Super Stardust HD

Not only does June 25 celebrate the “Fiesta of Santa Orosia” in Spain, but the two year anniversary of Super Stardust HD as well. It seems like it was just yesterday when we downloaded this little fellow and started destroying asteroids and enemies.

Now, two years later, the game has spawned a demo and two additional add-on packs, not to mention a portable version for the PSP. Petteri Putkonen, one of the developers at Housemarque, took the time to speak to the fans on this joyous occasion…

European PS Store Update For 25th June – Sorry Folks!

Oops, we may have collectively hurt PlayStation.Blog.Europe’s feelings. They felt our cries of anger and disappointment and have asked patience from the European gamer. That may be a tall order; the European PS3 crowd has been very patient over a long period of time. Since 6 September to be precise.

Agent website launches

We brought you news from a Eurogamer interview with Take-Two yesterday on PS3-exclusive Agent that could well be “the next GTA”.

Well today Rockstar launched the official website for the game but as expected there is nothing there apart from the game’s logo and one for the PS3.

Get more Cuboid from today

Posting over at the PS Blog, Michael Robinson, Director of Communications at Creat Games, has announced that new Cuboid DLC will be available through the US PSN Store from today.

This includes the previously mentioned Booster Pack containing 33 new levels and the infamous level editor. This is the same editor that has experienced some technical woes when released on the EU store and the culprit as to why the US version was unceremoniously dragged back into development for some critical tweaking.

Steampunk PS3, anyone?

Steampunk PS3, anyone?

When we ran the story about the Edge of Twilight trailer, the response we received was one of unbridled enthusiasm. Not only towards the game itself, but also towards the whole concept of steampunk.

So imagine our surprise when we came across some images of a steampunk’d PS3!

Strewth! PS3s sold for AUS$199 – chaos ensues

First there was the Amazon sale, then GameStop in Spain went loco and sold off PS3 bundles at a fantastic promotional price. Now it’s Australia’s turn to jump in to the PS3 price slashing drama with news surfacing on Gamerzink that local Target stores, in what we must condemn as a shocking disregard for public safety, dropped the price of all remaining PS3s (40GB) to $199 (USD$159 / £97 / €114).

2.80 included some updates after all [UPDATE]

2.80 included some updates after all [UPDATE]

The latest firmware to hit the PlayStation 3, v2.80, seems to have created somewhat of a stir on the Internet.

Not because it included any groundbreaking changes. No. In fact all the talk has been about what wasn’t included, and why Sony felt the need to make this a ‘point release’ (a 0.1 increase in the version number) instead of a minor update (to 2.71, for example).

The firmware update has also created a flow of anti-SCE commentary as people wonder why Sony don’t just come clean with every update and publish the full changelog.

But after much searching and a handy news tip from one of our readers, we can reveal the extent of the actual changes to your XMB.

Superstars V8 Racing Spreading Across Europe

Are you tired of waiting for a certain racing game that rhymes with land modismo hive? Did your club membership run out? Do you have a need that could not be covered by other racing games? If you are in North America, you might as well stop reading and hide under a rock until September. However, if you are in Europe, there is hope for your racing dreams.

SOCOM v1.50, v1.60 and Downloadable Content

It seems like an eternity since the v1.50 patch was announced for SOCOM, and we have some more news on it, but still no release date.

According to the developers, thanks to the “scope of the feature set” of the update, testing has taken longer than expected.
