148w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Senior Producer Austin Wes Yanagi has shared a DC Universe Online PS3 video today spotlighting Blur's new fractured future.
To quote: "Fractured Future" the latest Blur-produced cinematic from DC Universe Online reveals another glimpse into the future as we see how Lex Luthor stole the exobytes from Brainiac, giving humanity the ability to evolve into super-powered heroes and villains!
But what evil plot is Lex Luthor hatching with his evil twin from the past? Will Batman and the evolving new heroes be able to stop him? What does the future hold for DC Universe Online? Log in and play...the next legend is you!
154w ago - A few weeks ago among some other work-arounds we reported on a project aiming to fix PlayStation 3 Blu-ray drives for those who downgraded their console, and today the group has released DRLTools DRLGen v0.90 suite offering an easy to use PS3 Blu-ray playback fix.
Our quest to restore BD playback for those PS3s that lost it after downgrading continues. Unfortunately our project suffered a serious setback last week when one of our discoveries was prematurely leaked: A potentially harmful and incomplete method to restore BD playback was disclosed by an attention-seeking individual. It should be noted that the fix in question is only a "band-aid" solution to the problem.
There is a very real possibility of future drive revocation resulting in PERMANENTLY broken playback! However, to make using it safer for those who wish to apply it, we have created this collection of DRL Tools. In the meantime we are...
156w ago - Previously we reported that PS3 downgrading hinders Blu-ray movie playback along with some work-arounds while markjtarr began a Poll on working/non-working drives post-downgrade, and today Project Blu-ray seeks to restore functionality using feedback from PlayStation 3 downgraders.
To quote from PSGroove (linked above): "They are asking anyone with a PS3 to run an app they have developed, which will dump certain files related to Blu-Ray playback.
It does not matter if the Blu-ray problem is affecting your console or not, your files are still needed for analysis. Once analyzed, this should lead to a permanent Blu-ray playback fix!"
From the included ReadMe file: One of the most exciting recent developments is the ability to downgrade PS3s to previous firmwares. Unfortunately this has proven to have an unexpected side-effect for certain older ("phat") PS3s:
After downgrading, systems with 256MB of flash RAM (NAND) lose the...
163w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that Blur will be offering Double XP all Halloweekend along with a PS3 developer play session.
To quote: In Blur, when you hit level 50 in the multiplayer system, you have opened up all the cars, activated all the mods, unlocked all the game modes, and hopefully have a decent strategy for all the tracks, from the tight turns of Hackney to the one-way trip down Mount Haruna.
And when you reach level 50, well, there's nowhere else to go. Except around the track, of course. Preferably very quickly.
And then, much like Modern Warfare 2, you face a decision: Do you keep playing with all the big toys, or do you challenge yourself by hitting a Legend rank and building up your reputation and garage again, based on pure skill?
As I write this, I'm level 40 or so. I'm going to get some more racing time in this week. And this weekend, the Blur developers at Bizarre Creations are offering a little Halloween treat - double XP from Friday the 29th through Sunday the 31st.
These are the perks when your studio's logo is a jack-o-lantern. That means for every race, you get twice as many fans, which means ranking up twice as fast,...
177w ago - Sony's European Product Manager Elliott Linger has shared another (see the previous one HERE) stunning new DC Universe Online Blur PS3 trailer to wrap up coverage from Comic-Con 2010 today.
