French Retailer Carrefour Ad Announces New PS3 at New Price

50°
256w ago - We did say today was alleged PS3 Slim ad day earlier, right?

Another has now surfaced from alexval78 at French site PS3Gen (linked above) which purportedly shows an ad for a 'new PS3 console at a new price' slated for September 1, 2009 and allegedly costing €299 Euros.

To quote, roughly translated: "Carrefour catalog contains active bids on Thursday 27 August to Tuesday September 8. Through its pages, our member was surprised to see an announcement regarding "a new console and a new award, announced on our beloved PS3!

As you can see, the layout is still that of the current PS3, but the offer is clear: Carrefour will offer for sale a new PS3, with a reduced price of €100, beginning the first of September next. This is certainly the improved version of the monolith as we know it as the Slim PS3."
 

Titan Studios Announces More Fat Princess Fixes Are Coming

50°
256w ago - Less than a week after the previous Fat Princess patch was issued to fix multiplayer connections comes news of more fixes in the works, as follows from Titan Studios:

I am happy to report that we have found the issue related to trophies, stats and scoreboards. Not only did we find it, but we think we have it fixed.

This is thanks to detailed bug information provided by many players - but especially Boko577. Boko, by the way, is ranked number one in Warrior Gladiate. Fear him. No word on timing of a fix, but we've got it, we'll test it, and roll it into a future update.

Speaking of Scoreboards

As all but 1,000 of you are no doubt aware, the scoreboards are currently limited to the top 1,000 players. We are working with Sony to have this cap removed, so all players can see their score. Just to give fair warning, this will happen with a future update and when it does, all scores will be reset to zero.

This will allow all players to be on the boards and in the race. BEFORE ANYONE FREAKS OUT: We are working on a way of doing this that will allow you to retain your unlocked Get Fabulous options. K, NOW FREAK OUT.

To the top 1,000...
