166w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Austin Senior Producer Wes Yanagi has shared a video trailer today for DC Universe Online PS3 via the NY Comic Con Panel.
To quote: I know that a lot of you are bummed that we have to delay DC Universe Online to 2011, but we think it's really gonna pay off.
With the delay and expanding beta, it will give us a chance to test and scale our servers and take feedback from the players so we can deliver a killer experience when the servers go live.
In the meantime, just in time for the New York Comic Con, here's a new sizzle trailer for DC Universe Online! This one's got it all: Heroes, Villains, Icons, combat, the whole shebang!
Also, the official DC Universe Online Facebook page will be showcasing a live stream of the DCUO panel discussion at 6:30 pm Eastern Time on *Saturday, October 9th* featuring legendary artist Jim Lee, DC Universe Online Game Director Chris Cao and DCUO Art Director Mark Anderson.
166w ago - Housemarque CEO and Co Founder Ilari Kuittinen has shared a fresh video trailer and confirmed Dead Nation PS3 online co-op via PSN today.
To quote: I would like to confirm that Dead Nation does have an online co-op mode!
You will be able to team up with your friends, either sharing the couch or via the PlayStation Network, and take on the undead invasion.
Originally, online co-op wasn't going to be included as a launch feature as the schedule and resources didn't allow it. However, after many late night testing sessions and long talks with Sony, we decided that this was a must-have feature and it would be unfair on you if we launched without it.
At this point our coders went from 12 hour working days to 16 hour days, as well as weekends. Fortunately, I think what we came up works really well.
Check out this new Know your Enemy trailer:
The online co-op fully matches the offline experience. Enjoy the no-compromise co-op experience with hundreds of on-screen zombies, huge explosions and bloody entrails scattered everywhere, if you're good enough!
In addition to the coders working non-stop, the designers and artists felt it was only fair...
168w ago - SCEA San Diego Studios Community Manager Ramone Russell has revealed Naughty Dog's ride in ModNation Racers for PS3 along with news that the online region lock is removed, as follows:
Today's edition kicks off the with some love from our friends from Naughty Dog.
Their Artist Spotlight hit PSN a bit ago, but we wanted to feature it to commemorate the release of the official Nathan Drake Mod and Kart AND the release of the Artist Spotlight content you saw in previous videos.
Artist Spotlight: Naughty Dog
The team at Naughty Dog are no strangers to blockbuster franchises. They've been responsible for some of the biggest titles on every PlayStation console including the Crash Bandicoot series, Jak and Daxter, and most recently Uncharted.
They are no strangers to racing either, Crash Team Racing defined Kart racing on the PlayStation and Jak X Combat Racing (PS2) was an adrenaline ride for all Jak fans. We were excited to see what Naughty Dog's top designers thought once they got their hands on ModNation Races and see them work their magic and get "Un-Karted".
171w ago - A few days back we saw the x3JailBreak PS JailBreak clone in action, and today the PS3 modchip's official site (linked above) is updated stating that shipping will begin tomorrow and there will be an online verification for updates.
They've listed a number of new features, including account based updates (after verification, so clones don't get access to updates),
future expansion promise.
Realizing the existence of much cheaper homebrew hardware options, they're saying their hardwre is competitively priced to those (teensy++ etc).
Here's their update with the list of features, to quote:
• X3JailBreak will start shipping the 100 samples, starting 2moro(today ;p) (sep 3rd to sep 6th).
• Future updates will need a per user-copy basis (to make clones fail to get the updates ;p, which might get circumvented by open source hack methods anyway)
• X3jailbreak.com will be shipping our samples out to 100 selected requests starting Sept 3rd-Sept 6th and x3jailbreak are now taking pre-orders which will start shipping by the end of next week (Sept 10th-13th). Feel free to submit your pre-orders today.
• Our goal at x3jailbreak was to provide you as customers...
172w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has posted up a video from this year's GamesCom showcasing DC Universe Online for Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: While thousands of eager gamers ran around the show floor at gamescom, behind closed doors, members of the press were treated to demonstrations of some of the hottest upcoming PlayStation 3 games.
One of these was DC Universe Online and I was able to attend and get my first eyes-on of the superhero action MMO running on a PS3.
We jumped straight into a quest, with the developer playing the game choosing a hero based loosely on Batman, with high agility, enabling him to run up walls, a powerful sword and a suitably brooding outfit and cape.
He had been sent by The Caped Crusader to rescue Robin from the clutches of Harley Quinn. First, he had to fight off a horde of cronies using melee and special attacks, including a force field that imprisons foes in a sphere that can be picked up and thrown around the world.
This demonstrated the realistic physics that can be used to your advantage and sets the game apart from other MMOs. One arena was littered with giant balls, in keeping with The Joker's maniacal playground environments. With skilful attacks, you can...
