184w ago - SCEA's Product Marketing Specialist Mick Perona has announced today that this weekend a new Uncharted 2 multiplayer playlist dubbed The Lab arrives alongside the recently announced PSN avatars.
To quote: This weekend - May 28 to June 1 - we're introducing a new playlist that will mix things up and maybe, possibly lead to updates or additions to the existing playlists in competitive Matchmaking. We're calling this playlist "The Lab."
We'll be running "The Lab" Playlist roughly every other weekend for the foreseeable future.
During each weekend "The Lab" is active, we'll be running a playlist featuring one or more custom-tuned gametype variations from the tons of variables we can tweak in our multiplayer gameplay settings.
Here's the current schedule and description for the first event in our "The Lab" Playlist series:
May 28 - June 1
2 vs. 2 Team Deathmatch Grab a partner for this small- to medium-size map mow-down. You've got 15 minutes to rack up 25 kills, or more than the other team, to prove your small-team superiority. I'm going to recommend now that you're going to want pick a reliable teammate...
185w ago - Today NaughtyDog has announced that new Uncharted 2: Among Thieves PSN Avatars will be released on the US PlayStation Store tomorrow for $0.49 each or $1.49 for five.
Pricing for other stores have not yet been announced, however, it is expected to be similar.
To quote: "Not too long ago we submitted a set of PSN Avatars to supplement the few existing UNCHARTED ones that have been available for quite some time.
We've just gotten word that the first of hopefully several sets of PSN Avatars has been approved for deployment on the PSN Store on Tuesday, May 25.
The PSN Avatars were created from renders we made from UNCHARTED 2 and include Nathan Drake, Elena Fisher, Victor Sullivan, Chloe Frazer, Jeff, Tenzin, Karl Schafer, Zoran Lazarevic, Harry Flynn, and an image of the Phurba dagger.
The Avatars will be available for $0.49 each or in two bundles of 5 Avatars for $1.49 per bundle. The bundle options that the PSN Team has created turns out to be a pretty good deal, adding up to a savings of nearly $1 compared to purchasing 5 avatars separately.
I only have US pricing at the moment, but the pricing in other regions will be similar to that of existing Avatars already available on the PSN Store."
217w ago - European PS3 gamers who view the two-minute long trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine at Sony's PlayStation Home Theatre will then find a free set of Wolverine Claws waiting for them in the Threads store of the Home Mall.
Unfortunately, these are non-functional weapons so you won't be able to go on a virtual rampage in Home... but free is always nice!
To quote: "As of today, it gets a little more dangerous with the addition of wearable Wolverine claws in Sony's virtual social space.
In an effort to promote the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, this year's best mutant action-comedy, on Blu-ray and DVD, Twentieth Century Fox and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe are giving away free adamantium upgrades to Home users. And they're giving away a free animated shirt. They call it a vest in Europe, which sounds much nicer than "wife-beater."
How does one get these lovely prizes?
Well, all one needs to do is visit the old Threads Store in Home, presumably after visiting the Home Theatre to watch a preview of the Blu-ray release."
