88w ago - Today Naughty Dog developer Eric-ND has announced that the Uncharted 3 PS3 patch 1.08 is incoming, however, he warns that users should save their Cinema files to YouTube before it goes live.
To quote from his post on the official PlayStation board: Save your Cinema Files now!
Hi, The next patch (1.08) is coming very soon. We'll have a full list of all the changes that will happen as soon as it's been fully tested and signed off. One very important item we want to inform you about right now is your cinema files.
As soon you update to the next patch all previous cinema files you had will not work and will crash the game. In other words any cinema files you recorded pre-patch 1.08 won't work once patch 1.08 is installed.
Therefore we recommend that you upload any cinema files you currently want to save to YouTube.
As for the exact timing on the patch we'll keep you updated here on the forums and via the Naughty Dog Blog as well as on our Facebook and Twitter. For now it'll be best to get in the habit of uploading your favorite cinema files to YouTube as often as you can.
Please let us know in this thread if you have any questions. Full details on the next patch are coming soon!

Watch favorites like Amélie, Pan's Labyrinth, and Mulholland Dr. to festival gems and award winners from every festival in the planet.
182w ago - Today Sony Content Producer Barry Keating has shared an interview with Efe Cakarel, the man behind MUBI cinema.
To quote: Following on from my post from the Cannes Film Festival where SCEE and MUBI announced its partnership to bring a film lover's paradise direct to your PlayStation 3, I sat down with MUBI founder and CEO Efe Cakarel to talk about the service and the idea of bringing a whole new world of independent, classic and foreign cinema to you, the PlayStation Community.
So, announcing at Cannes must be a really exciting experience?
There really is no better place. Cannes is the most important time of the year for us. This is where every major distributor comes to meet, and this is the natural place to announce a service that we think is so important for the industry.
And having the support of someone like Agnes Varda behind MUBI must be special too?
You know, Agnes is very passionate about what she does, and we really wanted her to be here because that's what MUBI is about - it's about showcasing the wonderful work of these filmmakers, both established auteurs like Agnes and emerging talent.
