Can’t connect to the PSN?
Don’t worry! Sony has given word that the PlayStation Network is undergoing maintenance.
[Update: The PSN is back up, and everyone should have access again]
European PS3 owners have been able to play Trine for a couple of weeks now, and North American users have been waiting impatiently after every heartbreaking delay.
The wait is over! Trine will be releasing in October!
Welcome to another Homerun, the only article to read for news and views on the week’s PlayStation Home content.
This week we have the big one, Home update v1.3, that brings a ton of new features and improvements.
his weeks U.S. PSN Video Store update brings a whole lot of HD films; some good, some bad, and one that is absolutely amazing. District B13 makes its video store debut and we highly suggest downloading this film if you don’t own it already. It’s a great action/parkour film staring David Belle himself. Let’s hope it’s the original French version with subtitles because watching it dubbed doesn’t feel right.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine finally arrives in HD after its SD arrival a few weeks ago. Aside from that, there aren’t any eye grabbers in the update. There are also plenty of TV shows included too such as Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, and Saturday Night Live with Megan Fox. We wonder if Jenny Slate’s F-bomb slip up is included?
Friend of PS3 Attitude, Cleric20 of Dark Matters, serves up another of his excellent movie reviews for your delectation. Grab some popcorn, sit back and enjoy as he gives you the full lowdown on Gamer, starring Gerard Butler.
If Sci-fi shoot ‘em up Gamer is to be believed then the future of gaming is less about motion control and more about nano-cells…
It’s been a while since the last Reel Deal but this week, we bring news of zombies and Metal Gears in the form of Resident Evil: Afterlife and the Metal Gear Solid fan film, Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy. These video game series are two of the most influential in the industry so we have come to expect big things from their big screen counterparts.
Ben Heck, famous for his laptop-ification, has taken his talents to task on the PS3 Slim.
Not only that, he has created what is quite possibly the neatest, most viable product re-design we have seen in quite some time.
It’s all about the PSPgo and PSP minis all over the world. But for the PSPgo-less crowd (the lot of you we hope) there’s a ton of games for you to sample on your PS3 Phat or Slim. Brütal Legend is the one we have all been waiting for, but there’s also Star Wars, Need for Speed, TMNT (which you can buy) and Up.
Up is a pretty fun coop game for the family. And speaking of family, LittleBigPlanet has a new costume pack featuring characters of a movie that the kids are not allowed to watch. They sure do look cute in sackperson form though. FIFA 10 and NBA 10 get DLC as well, one of which is free.
The wait for this one was brutal, but well worth the wait. Brutal Legend: The Demo is upon us. We all rocked to Tenacious D with Rock Band, but now you can be the man himself. Jack Black rocks out with his rooster out in the open in Tim “Freakin” Schafer’s Brutal Legend.
But that is not all Digger HD: The Downloadable Game is available for all you digging enthusiasts. We just hope that the multiplayer modes are not full of virtual teamsters slowing everything down. Qore, PSone classics, LBP’s Watchmen costumes, and two Fallout 3 packs round up this very awesome update.
Announced at this years Tokyo Game Show, Resident Evil 5 is getting a make over to support the new PlayStation motion controller. The alternate edition will also feature new content, expanding the Resident Evil universe…
Namco Bandai has announced a brand new game due to arrive next year. The game is entitled Enslaved and is being developed by Ninja Theory, the team behind PS3 exclusive Heavenly Sword.
Gamers take the role of two characters, Monkey and Trip, in a post-apocalyptic America 150 years into the future.
