78w ago - Beatshapers Founder and CEO Alexey Menshikov has announced that beginning today BreakQuest: Extra Evolution is exclusively breaking and questing on PlayStation Minis for fans.

To quote: It's Alexey Menshikov from Beatshapers and I'm pleased to reveal our next game - BreakQuest: Extra Evolution is coming to North American PlayStation Stores today as a PlayStation Minis exclusive (PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation Portable), priced at $3.99.

This game has a long story: the original game was released back in 2004 on PC by Spain-based Felix Casablancas and Nurium Games, and was the best breakout-style game at its time featuring something very unique for the genre - fully interactive physics.

We were one of the biggest fans of the game and when Sony approached with introduction of PlayStation Minis; we decided to bring this game to minis in 2010, which was quite successful.

A year after the PSP minis release, we thought about its sequel with the twist - at that time we had a feedback from the PSP version players, so we decided to improve the gameplay and design: we took best game and design elements of original game and rebuild it from scratch, incorporating our vision and our inspiration from the original BreakQuest.

As a result, we have created...

PS3 Firmware 3.30 Update Breaking PlayStation 3 Consoles?

1250°
208w ago - As with nearly every PS3 Firmware revision, the recently released PS3 Firmware 3.30 update arrived with user reports of PlayStation 3 consoles breaking post-update.

To quote: "The main reported problems are that the systems no longer read any form of disc, thus making gaming and watching movies an impossibility - even the NetFlix disc is reported to no longer work in some cases.

One user report stated on the official PlayStation forums: "Are you kidding me! First (3.21) it freezes, and now with this one (3.30) it won't even read or recognize the disk, that means that I won't be able to play online or offline."

Although they may be isolated cases, has anyone here experienced these issues since updating to PS3 Firmware 3.30 this week? Feel free to reply in the comments below!
 

Assassin's Creed 2 Game-Breaking Glitch is Being Reported

350°
228w ago - Update: This has now been patched for PS3 users, and an update for XBox 360 fans is slated for December 11, 2009.

This seems to be the weekend for reporting video game glitches, with this Assassin's Creed 2 game-breaking glitch and several Modern Warfare 2 glitches surfacing.

According to CVG.com, some gamers found themselves stuck controlling Desmond in the Hideout after DNA Sequence 11, a direct result of shutting off their system after the game autosaved.

When they later booted the game back up, they were unable to return to the Animus and continue Ezio's 15th century adventure. However, reports are mixed on whether this is affecting Xbox 360 or PS3 gamers, or both.

To quote: "It doesn't seem to happen to everyone, but once it does occur there appears to be no way out of it other than to start over again.

CVG has contacted Ubisoft and awaits a reply. For now, we'd advise you not to quit out of the game after that particular checkpoint."
 

Media Molecule is Working on 'Ground Breaking' PS3 Title

50°
252w ago - LittleBigPlanet developers Media Molecule are working on a new PS3 title, at least according to a job posting from earlier this month.

According to the listing, they are seeking a Gameplay Programmer for "ground-breaking, AAA, PS3 title for Sony Computer Entertainment" as part of an expansion of Media Molecule Ltd.

To quote: It was thought that the developers were working only on LittleBigPlanet PSP, as the studio is fairly small and employs only a handful of people. This news is good news for PS3 owners, and certain requirements in the listing suggest that this game will be LittleBigPlanet 2.

The listing asks for "experience writing and maintaining physics code" and requires the prospective employee to have "shipped a console game with an online component."

This is obviously all speculation, but don't be too shocked when the game announced is LittleBigPlanet 2 (or LittleBigUniverse?)
