169w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has shared a video today of PlayStation Home's new full-length game called Enter the Dragon's Green.
To quote: The evolution of the PlayStation Home platform continues this Thursday, September 16th with the release of our full-length mini-golf game: Dragon's Green.
With nine holes of fantasy mini-golf - and four difficulty gauntlets - Dragon's Green is among the richest and most robust gaming experiences available in PlayStation Home, coming complete with awe-inspiring graphics, ultra-addictive game play, and more than a handful of surprises we wouldn't dare spoil for you here.
In the Dragon's Green you can challenge up to three friends at a time and test your skills against dozens of enemy obstacles while uncovering secret challenges and unlocking special rewards.

183w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a video preview of Qore Episode 25 today, which includes Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Green Day Rock Band, PixelJunk Shooter 2 and Clash of the Titans.
To quote: Lara Croft is back, and this time she's joined by a fierce Mayan warrior named Totec. The Guardian of Light is a new, multiplayer co-op title coming to the PlayStation Network.
Qore Host Veronica Belmont visited developer Crystal Dynamics to bring you up-to-date on Lara's action-packed, puzzle-solving adventure...a departure from the Tomb Raider series.
It's hard to believe 16 years ago Green Day achieved mainstream success with the release of Dookie, and today they've got a Broadway musical and their own version of Rock Band.
Qore caught up with Billie Joe, Tre, and Mike in advance of the release of Harmonix's Green Day Rock Band, which features – for the first time – new motion-capture technology of the power punk trio to bring their live stage performances to life.
211w ago - QPACE, the supercomputer at Research Center Jülich and the University of Wuppertal, is now deemed the world's most energy efficient supercomputer on the Green500 List.
The Green500 List ranks the energy efficiency of supercomputers around the world.
To quote: "The QPACEs Intel PowerXCell processors are an enhancement of the Cell/B.E. processor, originally developed by Sony, Toshiba and IBM for Sony's PlayStation 3 console.
QPACE (Quantum chromodynamics Parallel Computing on the Cell) is being used to simulate forces in elementary particle physics, especially in the research area of quantum chromodynamics, which describes such things as how a proton is made up out of quarks and gluons.
It consists of four racks at Research Center Jülich and four at the University of Wuppertal. Each of the QPACE installations has a top performance of 100 TeraFlops, equal to 100 trillion floating point operations per second. The supercomputer runs a standard Fedora Linux distro OS.
Each rack in QPACE contains 256 IBM PowerXCell 8i nine-core processors and 1 Terabyte storage, and uses 30 kilowatts of power."
