160w ago - Hey guys, it's Cyan here just to let you know that I got my hands on a extra Phantom of Chaos DLC code, and I plan on giving it away to a random person.
If you want to win the code please post a comment on my youtube video below. I will check all the comments on PS3News.com as well for the code, but understand that your chances are greater on the video because I can email the code easier to you.
All you basically have to do is own God of War 3, or plan on buying it in the near future. Then write a comment telling me why you want the code and I'll pick a random person.
I'm not too sure when I will give the code up, but it will probably be over the weekend, so if you want it be sure to post a comment on the video.
From what I understand these codes sometimes DO NOT WORK. I have not used this code, but since they sometimes don't work, I can not guarantee that it will. But the other one I had did indeed work, so this one should as well.
To get the code to use for PSN if you win the contest. You first have to take the code I give you and log into your PSN on godofwar.com/skin. Then they will email you the PSN code. I know it seems odd, but that's what you have to do for whatever reason.

The stunt is part of Sony Australia's Bravia Bonus PS3 promotion, and those interested can see it in slow-motion below.
To quote from the video's YouTube page: Sony has literally put to the test what happens when you bring BRAVIA and PlayStation 3 together. In the first-ever, controlled conditions test of its kind, the new PS3 slim-line console has been catapulted into a BRAVIA LCD TV.

203w ago - Despite previous reports that Play.com has confirmed the Gran Turismo 5 PS3 release date of November 27, in a brief interview with AutoWeek magazine GT series creator Kazunori Yamauchi stated that "We will give the release date of Gran Turismo 5 soon."
To quote: Another surprisingly interesting portion of the interview came when Yamauchi was asked about Gran Turismo 1's development:
AW: How hard was it to make that first game?
KY: It took five years. In those five years, we could not see the end. I would wake up at work, go to sleep at work. It was getting cold, so I knew it must be winter. I estimate I was home only four days a year.
He also mentioned the original game was created by a staff of only 7 people!
208w ago - Previously it was rumored that the second secret title which Capcom will unveil at E3 2009 would be none other than Devil May Cry 5.
Since then, Capcom was contacted asking for their word on this rumor, and have replied as follows:
Capcom immediately replied saying, "It's a title fans have been waiting for, everyone will have to wait until E3 to find out what the secret title exactly is, but we can tell it is definitely not Devil May Cry 5."
There you have it, it's not Devil May Cry 5 but Capcom stating that 'It's what fans have been waiting for' certainly excites us and after giving it some thought we came up with 1 title that hasn't been announced yet and has a lot of fans waiting Onimusha 5.
213w ago - Recently GamePolitics expressed its consternation towards EA's Godfather II 'swag kit' containing Brass Knuckles.
The publisher then began a flurry of hush-hush phone calls to arrange the return of the weapons. EA declined to comment beyond expressing a desire to assist journalists in proper disposal of the items.
To quote: The game in question: Godfather II, a Grand Theft Auto-style adventure based on the famous movie. The offending item: a set of brass knuckles, mailed to video games journalists together with other goodies including a cigar, a silk handkerchief, and a book of matches.
But while it nicely complements the game's mafiosi theme, it also had the unfortunate side-effect of turning recipients of the mailing into criminals, as mere possession of brass knuckles is illegal in many states and can carry hefty penalties.
