Final Fantasy VIII is now available to download from the Japan PlayStation Store.
Will FFVIII be released in Europe and North America soon?
This weeks PSN video content update features People’s Sexiest Man Alive Hugh Jackman as the claw touting mutant Wolverine, along with a few other less notable X-Men characters.
Not only is the film up on the store, but two featurettes and a bonus documentary are there for downloading as well. We do wonder why the film only appears in standard definition and not HD.
News is trickling in here to the Attitude Nexus that the previously promised Firmware update 3.01 (aka “Sorry we broke Uncharted” fix) is now live in some regions.
Details are sketchy at the moment but it appears that the only thing different is the aforementioned game will no longer crash like a drunk monkey driven plane.
The PlayStation Network has been a huge opportunity for Sony to re-release the classic games that defined the PlayStation era. Unfortunately, for countless weeks Sony underwhelmed fans by ignoring the library of quality games that the PSone has to offer.
During E309, Sony stated that the number of PSone Classics available on the US PSN will increase to nearly 60 titles by the end of the year.
Is Sony on track in keeping its promise? Not only that, but are the games actually ‘classics’?
This weeks video content update is rather lacking in both movies and TV shows with only a handful in each. While new content isn’t flooding in, it’s the classic shows that are making a splash.
Starting today and up until the 17th, the PSN is having a First Season Summer Sale where episodes will be on sale for $0.99.
The European PlayStation Store got its first set of Dynamic Themes today, and one of them is free!
Haven’t seen it yet? Check out our video showcasing the theme.
Throughout the years, Sony has released numerous games onto the PlayStation Store. Despite the growing collection, there are some glaring omissions to the PlayStation 3 experience that just makes me wonder why certain games haven’t been released yet.
Which classic franchises would you love to see make their return in HD on the PS3?
A third PlayStation 3 dynamic theme has been released onto the PlayStation Network, this time in both Japan and North America where for just 200 yen or $2.99, you can purchase a cool PixelJunk Monsters edition and it’s quite impressive.
Shuhei Yoshida, president of worldwide studios for Sony Computer Entertainment, believes that the company was “late” in bringing a proper integrated online experience for the PlayStation brand.
He has been speaking to Edge magazine where he admits that they have lagged behind Microsoft in developing the PlayStation Network…
New details have emerged on who the typical users of the PlayStation Network are in North America, and it provides with some interesting results.
This weeks new arrivals to the PSN Video Store include action, comedy, magic, and a little bit of mystery. To top off the list is Zach Snyder’s amazing adaptation of the graphic novel 300. Watching it will make you think why is this just now making it to the PSN?
Also near the top of our suggestion list is I Love You, Man staring Paul Rudd and Jason Segal. If you’re a Harry Potter fan then The Order of the Phoenix is the choice for you. If you can’t seem to find a film to your liking, then perhaps one of the hundreds of television shows will catch your eye.
The PlayStation Network is going to have some maintenance work done later today, Tuesday 25th August.
Unfortunately, this also means that we will not be able to get onto the network between 4:15pm and 9:05pm (BST).
But what does this mean for us gamers?
Before the Street Fighter IVs and the BlazBlues, there was a little game on the Dreamcast called Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes.
Even to this day, MvC2 is still played in tournaments across the country, and copies are sold on eBay for ridiculous amounts.
Thankfully you no longer have to give an arm and a leg to play this wonderful game…
No, we are not refering to the next new and exciting product from Apple but the official BBC media player. The iPlayer allows users to stream/download clips, shows, and other features from the BBC. Up until now, the service has only been available on PS3 consoles through the integrated web browser.
Announced at Gamescom, Sony will be partnering with BBC to bring an official version of the streaming service to the PS3…
It’s GamesCom this week, which means that we have a special store update for you!
As with E3 before it, Sony have graciously provided us with a raft of new content in honour of the start of GamesCom, and their incredible Press Conference! Be sure to check out the news here.
Check out the list of videos you can now get on the PlayStation Store in EU regions…
It’s been quite a successful day for Sony. With the announcement of the PS3 Slim along with a new lower price and the Video Store making it’s way to the UK, people are going to have a lot of extra cash on hand. What better way to spend it than on a prepaid PSN card!
When Kazou Hirai takes to the stage at Gamescom tonight (2pm EST) the PSN will be powered down for what Sony are calling “routine maintenance.”
It’s not the first time the network has been taken offline for such measures (and it won’t be the last) but speculation is rampant that the fact that the two hour downtime just so happens to coincide with Sony’s keynote at Cologne is no coincidence.
The most likely reason the whole network needs rebooting would be the arrival of a new firmware.
That said, don’t be surprised if they simply chose this time purely because they expect most gamers to be glued to live feeds of the conference and not online killing Helghast.
The brain-child of Doug TenNapel and developed by Shiny Entertainment back in the 1990s, Earthworm Jim holds a special place in the hearts of many gamers.
Noted for its surreal humour and sublime animations, Interplay have now granted Gamesloft the exclusive rights to developer and distribute Earthworm Jim for multiple digital platforms including the PSN.
This weeks PSN Video Store update brings another truck load of movies and television shows but nothing really catches our eye. There is a hodgepodge of content from Babe to Carlito’s Way to Big Trouble in Little China.
The top downloads are still being dominated by less than mediocre films. Why? We have no clue but perhaps something this week will knock them out of the top spot.
Personally, we would recommend Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas or Garden State if you’re not in the mood for something as depressing.
Those PSN games just keep on coming. This time we have a “fresh and innovative” turn-based strategic game from Amsterdam based W!Games entitled Greed Corp.
Coming across as overtly “green”, the game will be the first in a series from the studio to highlight the destructive force of industry on our environment.
