185w ago - Yesterday OPM confirmed that the much-anticipated 3D PS3 Firmware update is set for a June 2010 release, and today Sony has listed the initial 3D PlayStation 3 games along with confirming free 3D update patches will be available from PSN.
To quote via ElectronicTheatre.co.uk: "3D gaming is about to get real. To enable true 3D gameplay on the new BRAVIA 3D TVs, we are releasing a free of charge 3D firmware upgrade for the PlayStation 3.
At the same time, a number of exciting new 3D games will be released including WipEout HD, MotorStorm Pacific Rift, SuperStardust HD and PAIN.
And if you already own these games, you'll be able to upgrade to the 3D version absolutely free, simply by downloading a patch from the PlayStation Network."
275w ago - According to Gamer.tm, SEGA's latest PS3 exclusive Initial D: Extreme Stage which launched in Japan not only looks bad but also plays bad.
They note that the game looks like little more than a high-res PS2 title, and the game play sucks with "floaty handling and iffy collision detection aplenty."
To quote: Unfortunately, it seems that SEGA's usual top form has deserted it on this occasion, as our exclusive screenshot gallery shows.
Although there are no obvious faults with the game's graphics, it must be said that - between the flat textures, the lack of detail and the primitive special effects - there's not a lot right with it, either.
Indeed, we'd go so far as to say it looks like little more than a high-res PS2 title.
Unfortunately, the gameplay doesn't help much either, with 'floaty' handling and iffy collision detection aplenty.
287w ago - Sega has released a new trailer for 'Initial D: Extreme Stage' which is set to be released in Japan on July 3, 2008. The game will only be single player.
To quote: The Official site settles the score explaining there is no two player mode in Initial D Extreme Stage. Ghost data is the closest thing you get to racing against an actual human.
Other PlayStation Network features include a national time attack mode and downloadable content. Extra cars, my character parts (costumes?), and an original comic will be available on the PlayStation Store, probably for a price.
