58w ago - Rebellion Senior Producer Steve Hart has shared a video today demonstrating how one bullet can change history in Sniper Elite V2 on PS3.
To quote: It's been seven years since the first Sniper Elite came out, so it's a really exciting time for us this week - we'll be showing gamers how amazing the reboot is shaping up in the demo we're releasing on the PlayStation Store.
All the previews for the game have been immense and the media have really been loving it and understanding what we've tried to do. It's only fair that gamers now get the chance to play, ahead of the full game's launch on May 4th.
The game definitely isn't 'run and gun', it's much more of a thinking man's shooter. You literally don't know what's around the next corner, so you have to think ahead and live by the mantra - Observe. Plan. Execute.
The demo is of a level early in the game where you have to hijack an armored convoy and assassinate a leading V2 rocket engine specialist. We really want people to experiment with the different ways you can play through the level.
It's not always about shooting - sometimes it's more advantageous to slip by unnoticed. Rather than take out one soldier...
68w ago - Following up on his previous releases, today PS3 developer deroad has updated his PS3 LED Changer homebrew application to version 2.0 which allows users to temporarily change their PlayStation 3 system LED colors.
To quote: This is a completely new version of Led Changer.
The app allows you to change the colour of your system's LEDs (the power light) and keep it also on the XMB or while playing games/homebrews.
This is NOT permanent; the first time that you turn off your PS3, the led will go back to normal. This version does NOT need any kind of external drive. all you need is a JoyPad; just it. Now the app is Lighter (from ~1.2 Mb to ~145Kb), Faster, for all TVs (HD/SD) and Easier to use.
Before installing, you can delete the previous version (if you want to get more space).
76w ago - Today SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a video interview on MotorStorm RC which will be heading to both PS Vita and the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Judging from the comments, we caught you by surprise when we announced that MotorStorm RC is coming to PS3 and PS Vita in time for launch.
You all seem really excited about the game so I followed up with its director Paul Rustchynsky to discuss in more detail the vision, the Cross-Play with PS3 and PS Vita, and the social interactions that will be at the heart of MotorStorm RC.
If you have any further questions then please let us know in the comments and I'll get the answers.
87w ago - Last week we reported that the PSN Terms were updated followed by how to Opt-Out of the new Class Action waiver, and today Sony confirms to CNN (linked above) that the AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion (PDF) US Supreme Court ruling earlier this year spurred the recent PlayStation Network TOS change.
To quote: "Sony said this week that the new terms-of-service changes were made, as some analysts suspected, in response to a Supreme Court decision in April. In that case, AT&T Mobility was permitted to include and enforce a clause in employment contracts that bars workers from bringing class-action suits.
"The Supreme Court recently ruled in the AT&T case that language like this is enforceable," a spokeswoman for Sony's PlayStation unit wrote in an e-mail.
"The updated language in the TOS is designed to benefit both the consumer and the company by ensuring that there is adequate time and procedures to resolve disputes."
