220w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has announced locations on where fans can get a sneak peek of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves on the big screen.
To quote: We first announced the special Uncharted 2 cinema events a couple weeks back, and since then, you've been asking us for details. Well, the time has officially come.
If you are lucky enough to live near the Chicago, LA, San Francisco, or Seattle areas, you and a guest have the chance to get down with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves on the big screen before the game releases (you must provide your own transportation)!
The date is Monday, October 5, 2009. We'll have food, an on-site tournament for a chance to compete for prizes, and the opportunity to meet the talented team from Naughty Dog. And best of all, a giant theater screen to see (and a chance to play) UNCHARTED 2 in big-screen glory. This is a very special event, and space is limited.
If you can make it, all you have to do is click on the link for your city below. We only have 50 slots (plus a guest) per city, and RSVP is first come, first serve! So what are you waiting for?
238w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Asad Qizilbash shared the following announcement today via PlayStation Blog:
With only 8 days left until inFAMOUS hits the stores, I wanted to share with you some quick updates.
Sucker Punch have created a 4-part comic that chronicles the days following that fateful blast that changed Cole's life forever. Part 1 of 4 is already out, check IGN HERE for the final parts when they're released.
Now if any of you are planning to watch Terminator Salvation this weekend, be on the lookout for the inFAMOUS 30-sec commercial that will be running in theaters nationwide from May 22nd to May 28th.
Not long to wait now...but just a reminder that you can get your hands on inFAMOUS before it comes out by playing the official demo that goes live on the PSN this Thursday. Hope you enjoy it.
287w ago - Sony declares "game on" as Adam Turner discovers the PS3's menu system is now built into Bravia televisions.
The user interface seems to be an afterthought on many consumer electronic devices, but Sony has obviously had its UI boffins working overtime (playing games consoles - nice work if you can get it).
They've decided that the XMB (Xross Media Bar) menu system used by the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable is more friendly that the menus used by Sony's big-arse Bravia LCD televisions, so the new generation of Bravias will utilise the PS3's menu system.
The old Bravias were designed around a standard tree-like menu system, with options opening up to the right as you scroll down through the categories. The Bravia's Xross Media Bar menus are built around a similar concept, the menus are sightly more animated but it still requires you to scroll down through categories as your options pop up on the right.
The Xross Media Bar actually has a similar look and feel to the Vista Media Centre interface and even the changes in Windows Mobile 6.1.
The Bravia's move to Xross Media Bar is more cosmetic than functional, yet I can't deny that I prefer it over the old Bravia menus. Smooth and responsive menus reduce the feeling that you're fighting with a device....
