69w ago - Valve Software's Brian Levinthal has confirmed today that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is coming to PSN on August 21, 2012.
Below are the details, to quote: Since 1999, Counter-Strike has been the standard-bearer for first-person shooters.
The driving force behind competitive e-sports, Counter-Strike has showcased the talents of the most skilled FPS players around the world. Beginning August 21st, the classic action is available on PSN.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive brings the industry's leading team-based action gameplay and adds new weapons, dramatically improved visual effects, and a skill-based matchmaking system to provide all players with a competitive and engaging experience.
Developing for PlayStation 3 gave us a great opportunity to take advantage of the unique qualities of the platform. For example, we're supporting a wide range of input devices including the PlayStation Move, PlayStation Move sharp shooter, and even keyboard and mouse.
Naturally, support for these devices means that different players in the same match might be using different controllers. Players using mouse and keyboard might end up playing against players using a joystick or motion controls.

125w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared some video footage today from Comic-Con 2011 spotlighting the Global Resistance online strategy game in Resistance 3 for PS3.
To quote: Greetings from San Diego and the International Comic-Con.
Last night, IGN Editor Colin Moriarty moderated a panel on Resistance 3 featuring Creative Director Marcus Smith, Art Director Grant Hollis, Animation Director Kevin Grow, as well as voice actor Robin Atkin Downes (Joseph Capelli) and Crispin Freeman (Charlie Tent).
The panel covered the Resistance universe, showed some of the new St. Louis footage we debuted on Gametrailers TV last night, and we discussed the St. Louis level, along with its mysterious story implications about Charlie Tent and his ragtag group of rebels.
And from there, we gave the audience a behind the scenes look of the motion- and performance- capture that we used to bring the characters to life in Resistance 3. Since you all couldn't be there with us, check out this highlight video of some of the best moments from the panel.

228w ago - Not long ago it was reported that The Pirate Bay was sold for approximately $8 million USD to the Global Gaming Factory.
According to FastCompany.com (linked above), Global Gaming Factory has failed to acquire the millions of dollars in funding necessary.
Furthermore, TorrentFreak.com is reporting that Wayne Rosso, the former CEO of Grokster who was involved with Global Gaming Factory recently, said it's unlikely to happen and as a result The Pirate Bay is giving them a week before cancelling the deal.
To quote: "I don't think there's going to be any money raised with GGF's current (lack of) plans," Rosso told TorrentFreak. Besides Rosso and his partners, the people who were supposed to finance the acquisition were also misinformed.
When confronted with the news, a Pirate Bay insider said they would give GGF a week to get insurance from the investors, otherwise the deal is off. Pirate Bay spokesman Peter Sunde told us that he doesn't know what will happen to the Pirate Bay in the future, when the deal is off the table.
