Many studios are now implementing “penalties” for leaving a game early, the latest being Naughty Dog who are dishing out hefty 40,000 fines for players who mysteriously vanish from the fray.

We’re not sure about you, but we’re definitely excited about the upcoming No More Heroes port coming to the PS3 and 360 next March.

33 million PSN users, a firmware update planned to make all PS3s 3D compatible, not to mention new avenues for premium content to expand on to the PSN – the list goes on.
