269w ago - Shortly following the PlayStation 3 Slim Teardown from earlier today comes a video of the new PS3 Slim's bootscreen.

It incorporates the new PlayStation 3 Slim font logo, and speculation has begun that it may be included in the PS3 Firmware 3.0 update that is scheduled to arrive on September 1, 2009.

If it's true, the question remains: Why in that version? Unless perhaps a core file changed... time will tell.

Those interested can check out the video below, courtesy of bichtri via YouTube.

Rumor: Grand Theft Auto IV: Lost and Damned Coming to PS3?!

300°
270w ago - It appears a Sony employee spilled the beans earlier today in a [Register or Login to view links] (now removed) on the official European PlayStation board.

To quote Yaster: "And they were certainly showing some PS3 love - Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and the Damned was available to play in a special 18+ area, we didn't manage to get our hands on it due to the MASSIVE queue - but those inside looked pretty excited."

Since the initial leak and thread removal, a new [Register or Login to view links] has been started and rumor has it Yaster said he is working on getting the story back up.

Time will tell, however, if this is true then it appears Microsoft's exclusive 'paid' DLC won't be exclusive for much longer.
 

PlayStation Home v1.3 Coming This September to the PS3

100°
270w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced today that PlayStation Home v1.3 is coming this September to the PS3 console.

To quote: As announced at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, PlayStation Home's core client will be getting a serious upgrade this fall. And when we say serious, dear readers, we're talking excessive and impressive in quality, extent, and degree. This is the for real deal upgrade!

I got three words to start us off: Universal. Game. Launching. That's right - you can now launch into any PlayStation 3 game directly from Home. Titles that fully support game launching (like Street Fighter IV, Resistance 2, MotorStorm, and Far Cry 2) will be identified by separate icons that appear over an avatar's head and will have varying degrees of additional multiplayer functionality built in.

Simplified game launching will take you from Home to the start menu of your favorite games with ease. Never again will you have to sign out of Home to play with (or against) your friends. Simply insert the disc of your choice while in Home and follow the on screen directions and you'll be good to go.

Shop-a-holics will be stoked to see that an in-store item previewing option will be rolled out. This feature will allow you to preview items of clothing...
 

Digital Comics Store for Sony's PSP Coming in December

100°
270w ago - Today PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen has announced that a digital comics store for Sony's PSP is coming in December.

To quote: This December, you will be able to purchase and download from over 1000 digital comics on PlayStation Store (on the PSP and Media Go).

We've partnered with one of the leading comic publishers, Marvel Entertainment, to bring you the biggest names in comics, including Spider-Man, X-Men and the Fantastic Four. Now you are able to view graphic novels for bite-sized entertainment on demand and on the go.

We'll be adding an additional comics tab to the PlayStation Store for PSP, so you'll see different storefronts for your PSP games, downloadable movies & TV shows, and for comics.

Once you download a comic, you'll read it through the digital reader for PSP which has an Autoflow feature that lets you zoom in and out and move from frame to frame on each page. It's really a fantastic way to read and view the comics, because it keeps the integrity of the original print comic.

I'll be back in December to give you a demo of the new "comic store" and the reader for digital comics and graphic novels.
