Worms is Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network, New Screens

300°
275w ago - Any of you who have been listening to our podcasts know that we LOVE the Worms game. And with the recent announcement that there will be a Worms for the iPhone, we're more than happy to hear about the upcoming PSN version for the European Store, as PlayStation owners have been missing out on this classic game of turn based strategy.

Just because you've missed out on all of the Worms action in the past, doesn't mean they've simply ported the XBLA Worms over to the PSN.

No sir, this is a fully expanded and honed edition that features additional retro-styled landscapes, a wide-r variety of team voices, additional graphic features and effects, much more responsive physics engine, 1080p support and four additional weapons including the much loved Holy Hand Grenade, Super Sheep and Concrete Donkey.

Check out the new screen-shots below (more linked above) and get your worms ready for battle!

Tales of Vesperia, Tales of Graces, Tales of VS Coming in 2009

250°
276w ago - Japanese publication 'Jump' has unveiled information on the Tales game series as follows:

Tales of Vesperia will be hitting the PS3 later this year. The latest issue of Jump in Japan has a massive blowout of Tales of announcements for the Wii, PSP, and PS3.

Tales of Graces will be the next Tales game to land on Wii. Planned to release later this year, Tales of Graces is the first main Tales title to land on Wii.

While details are scarce at the moment, we do know that the plot will entail a theme of protecting people. The main character vows to never lose someone important again.

Tales of VS will be landing on the PSP and will be the direct rival of Dissidia: Final Fantasy. Fundamentally sharing the same basic overview, Tales of VS will have 4-player fighting mode.

Thus far, only Yuri (Tales of Vesperia), Luke (Tales of the Abyss), Shing (ToH) and Richter (ToSKoR) have been revealed. I'm sure Lloyd will make an appearance as well.

Finally, we have Tales of Vesperia for PS3. The PS3 version will come with a new character named Patty Fleur.

Other than that, we have little to no details about any other changes Tales of Vesperia will get before it releases later this year.

700°
277w ago - Earlier today, from GDC '09 a PS3 Firmware 2.70 announcement by Sony was rumored.

While we don't have an official word yet, PS3 Firmware 2.70 was confirmed present by [Register or Login to view links] (props to ssneeky10 for the link) including some of the resident PS3 Devs, albeit briefly, on Sony's servers before being removed.

Chances are either a last-minute issue with it was found, or it was mistakenly put it up for download and removed, similar to what happened for Life with PlayStation.

To quote: Just got this from a prominent PS3 developer at GDC: "PS3 Firmware 2.70 definitely this week. Developers got it yesterday."

The update was rumored to have gone live this afternoon, but was apparently withdrawn. Watch for an announcement in the next few days.
