268w ago - Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein shared the following via PS Blog:
You've probably already heard the news: this coming Monday, October 27th, there will be an update made available on the PlayStation Network to unlock the entire Trophy system for Grand Theft Auto IV on PLAYSTATION 3.
Rockstar Games asked that I share a bit more info with you.
Make sure to download and install the update before playing in order to start attaining Trophies. There will be 51 total trophies, broken down by four different levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum - all contributing to your overall experience level on your PlayStation Network profile.
Among the 51 trophies to be released Monday, look for:
One Man Army - only those that are wily enough to survive a 6-star wanted level for a full 5 minutes will be rewarded with this one.
Dare Devil - an award for those who find and execute all of the Unique Stunt Jumps throughout Liberty City.
Chain Reaction - an Achievement for those who can pull off blowing up 10 vehicles in 10 seconds or less.
Liberty City Minute - for those that have completed the game story in less than 30 hours. As the Social Club's Story Club leaderboard can attest, this is not an easy feat.
271w ago - Per Nigel Kershaw (Game Director, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift) today via PS Blog:
Today the staff at Evo are doing a little dance and breathing a huge sigh of relief. For today is the day of our fist gold master candidate, which as I write this is winging its way to assorted testers around the world ready for them to give MotorStorm: Pacific Rift one last hammering. This isn't the end, chances are there still a few bugs to be fixed, but we've finished dessert, and are now just waiting for coffee and the bill. Phew.
But rather than browsing through vacation brochures, I thought this impasse would be best spent writing a few blog posts which answer some of the questions that have been floating around the internet about Pacific Rift. The first one of which I noticed is how many people I've seen decrying the fact the lovely little pause camera from the first game isn't present in the recent demo.
Well guess what? We've taken it out because we've introduced a photo mode to the main game, essentially the old pause camera on steroids. Hopefully it will be a good substitute and give your greasy little paws something to do while the game is paused, other than just going to the khazi.
