To quote: The competition is heating up on PlayStation! We're combining the world's most popular sport with our passion for pinball. Soon you'll be able to choose your favorite football club on our next table: Super League Football Pinball. Coming to Zen Pinball 2.

Wait... football pinball? Yes! Well, actually, you might know it as soccer, but we Americans like to do things a bit different from the rest of the world. You know, like not using the metric system and calling football soccer. Such rebels.

You'll side with your favorite clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool FC, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid C.F., A.C. Milan, Juventus, and A.S. Roma as they square off to dominate league play in a new pinball experience.

The table will be themed in brilliant style, including images of the clubs biggest stars, team mascots, chants, and theme songs - a totally authentic football experience. Scores will tally to each club's global leaderboard, providing an overall rank for each club in the league on a global scale on each platform.

FIFA 14 on PS3 Today, Capturing the Emotion of Great Goals

100°
42w ago - EA Sports Line Producer Sebastian Enrique confirmed that FIFA 14 is on PS3 today alongside detailing the emotions captured from great goals below.

To quote: After playing past FIFAs and watching real-world football, we realized that we weren't quite capturing how emotional it feels to score a goal. In FIFA 14, we want people to really feel that emotion of scoring great goals.

In addition to the emotion in the context of a match, great goals are achieved by either (or both) great finishing and fantastic build up play.

The major changes and innovations we're bringing into gameplay this year enable players to create and feel those exhilarating moments that happen when they've assembled plays their own way through midfield.

Finishing is both earned and rewarding in FIFA 14. We're transforming the tempo of the game and inspiring players to build possession through midfield rather than sprint down the wings during box-to-box matches. Last year it was too easy to fall down into creating the same cheap chances over and over again.

Major changes to dribbling - with new features like Protect the Ball, Sprint Dribble Turns, and Variable Dribble Touches - create more of a midfield battle, and make the magical moment of a goal more rewarding.

196w ago - SCEE Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has shared this weeks EU PlayStation Home updates today, as follows:

The Robo Goalie returns this week to [Register or Login to view links], and he refuses to admit summer is over!

Where better to keep the summer alive than on your very own SFRGBT!! Tropical Island personal space - available from Estates for €4.99 or £3.99. The SFRGBT!!

Tropical Island comes complete with the updated Supa-Fun Robo-Goalie Beach Time!! game. Robo Goalie returns with a kit bag stuffed full of new goodies, and he's giving them away to those with the skill to score the most consecutive goals.

Play in your island apartment to earn 4 new rewards, or play the version in the Shopping Centre where you can pick up 9 rewards - the most challenging being the apartment itself (if you've not bought it from Estates)!

Big changes are coming to the Shopping Centre this week. Due to there being more demand for store space than we had supply, our builders have been hard at work expanding the Shopping Centre with a second area. Join us this week for the grand opening of several new stores!

The new stores arriving this week are Billabong, Lockwood, nDreams and LucasArts. These newest stores...
 

Absurd, Strange, and Highly Improbable Life Goal: Will You Help?

250°
273w ago - So I recently came up with something I can do that would let me die accomplished: I want to play a game that was never programmed.

I've been thinking about it for about a week now, but haven't done much research on it but I came to these few conclusion so far:

•The game will essentially be "randomly" created
•The simplest "terminal" for the project would be NES
•The generated file should be between 5KB and 25KB, and follow the rules for zip compression. (This is the part that makes everything improbable -there are 7.4583407 E1125 possible files that could be produced (expanded example below) (25000^256))
•The production of the file will have a initial seed, and ideally keep a log of tested values
•Ideally a check on the NES ROM should also be performed.
•With the number of possibilities, the likelyhood of a game being produced is just as probable as a picture Pam Anderson loading up or even the first few lines of a Shakespeare play, or Beethoven's Symphony.
•A user in control of the produced random value can copy/paste, a known value, and easily load a game such TETRIS...(I can't quite understand if this would be violation of Copyright Law (I compare it to throwing a tomato on the ground and it coming out being just like Mario))

284w ago - Sony may have just [Register or Login to view links] a decrease in quarterly PS3 sales but executives are still in good spirits.

Apparently, the Sony execs believe they are on the right track to meet previously announced goals despite the poor performance recently.

To quote: "In terms of units, it is true that PS3, as compared to last year, is slightly worse, but on a full-year basis we believe we are on track to sell the 10 million units that I said at the beginning of the year," said Sony EVP and CFO Nobuyuki Oneda in an earnings call.

Sony announced earlier today that PS3 sold 4.46 million units during the company's fiscal Q3, a 9 percent drop from 4.9 million for the same quarter a year ago.

Oneda added, "...Relatively speaking, [compared to] the growth of other platforms, we are behind, but it's not the case that we are not meeting the target."
