Site News: PS3 News Quick Style Chooser Added, Seeking Logo

1100°
143w ago - This is just a quick PSA that we have now completed work integrating the PS3 News Quick Style Chooser into our Forums, Portal and 17 Subdomains hosted here which allows you to change the colors based on your preferences while browsing the site each day.

It can be found in the bottom left corner of each page here, and we will continue adding Styles to it frequently.

If anyone wishes to take a screenshot like HeyManHRU did HERE and fill in the colors you'd like to see we will do our best to add a Style under your UserName to pick from as time permits!

Finally, we are still offering $100 US for a new Site Logo... so far we have had a lot of GREAT design ideas in the ongoing thread with the criteria outlined below:

  • The logo should look decent with a transparent background, or able to be made that way upon being selected (most are).
  • The logo design should be unique so that when seen the first thing that comes to a viewer's mind is our site, not "Sony" or "PlayStation 3" so try to avoid using pics of the PS3 itself or...

Sony to Announce New PS3 Chassis Design at Gamescom 2011

500°
157w ago - Although no PS3 price drop is planned for the event, today [Register or Login to view links] reports that Sony will be announcing a new PlayStation 3 chassis design at Gamescom which runs from August 17th to the 20th, 2011.

This is not to be confused with the recent PS3 model CECH-3001A/B that weighs in at 2.6kg down from 3.0kg and cuts power consumption from 230W to 200W.

While the upcoming PS3's functionality is said not to change, during a recent interview PlayStation India Country Manager Atindriya Bose stated that the new PS3 chassis design will feature a slightly different internal design.

To quote: "Any chance of a price drop on the PS3 soon?

As of now, no.

Gamescom, then?

(laughs) Well, if there was a price drop coming at Gamescom, I'd know. There is, however, a new PS3 chassis being discussed. A slightly different design, but from what I can tell, not much difference in functionality."

164w ago - Today Nyleveia.com (linked above) reports news of a security issue with the PlayStation Network 'Password Reset' feature, and as a result Sony has turned off the PSN sign-in to remedy the matter.

Sony has also confirmed that it was indeed not a hack, but a URL exploit that was subsequently fixed.

To quote from Community Team Moderator Yaster via the official [Register or Login to view links]:

"Hey Guys. Please note that PSN sign in is currently unavailable for the following services:

• PlayStation.com
• PlayStation forums
• PlayStation Blog

In the meantime you will still be able to sign into PSN...
 

Video: InFamous 2's Mission Designer, PS3 Single Player Details

100°
169w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has revealed some new single player details alongside a video on InFamous 2's PS3 Mission Designer today, as follows:

A week ago, [Register or Login to view links] shared a couple of new inFAMOUS 2 missions, as well as the full download, so to speak, of the game's User-Generated Content tools.

A full UGC suite in a game like I2 is a new experience on PS3, so what can you do with it? And how difficult is it to put something together? Sucker Punch Senior Game Designer Karl Deckard sat down with us to demonstrate how to remix something fun.

As a huge devotee of the first inFAMOUS, I was eager to get my hands on the DualShock 3 to try out the new single player levels. Here are my impressions to go along with the video:





"Forced Conduits"

This mission from the 2nd island of New Marais finds me stepping into the trainers of Evil Cole. He's got a sickly pallor, and his every attack glows a fierce red. Eeee-vil.

This mission sends Cole on a search for a blast core - and more power - somewhere in the warehouse district. As I make my way towards the target on the mini-map, I try out the revamped parkour system.

Those...
