PS3 Firmware 2.70 Released, Removed and Coming This Week!

700°
278w 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The update was rumored to have gone live this afternoon, but was apparently withdrawn.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.
 

Cross Game Chat and Voice Messaging Coming to the PS3 XMB

100°
278w ago - According to CydoniaX, both voice messaging and cross game chat are in development for the PS3 console.

To quote, via PS Blog: When are we getting game launching abilities for every multiplayer game in the PS3 library? Why is it that the most basic of features for both the XMB and HOME get prioritized and delivered before all the extra stuff?

1) XMB - Voice Chat across games
2) XMB - Voice messaging(30 sec clip)
3) HOME - Game Launching for all games

Deliver what the fans want first and foremost then surprise us with all this Xi stuff.

CydoniaX replies: All that stuff is still in development, game launching started with Warhawk and should be supported by all future game spaces now. It takes time, but we haven't forgotten about all the stuff that our users really want!

279w ago - Q-Games Ltd. President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert shared details of the PixelJunk Eden Encore update coming in April today via PS Blog:

Eden Encore will be coming out very soon in April. Get ready for zero gravity, mirror worlds, all new music from Baiyon, and we've added something extra special at the end which is a Big Secret(tm) and is a present to all the fans.

On top of all this, we're flying along with the next new PixelJunk title (we're calling it #4 for now) and even experimenting with future PixelJunk ideas too.

But things just keep getting more exciting because PixelJunk Eden has been nominated in not just one, but three (!!!) categories at the upcoming [Register or Login to view links]'s award show in San Francisco, CA. We are also nominated for the [Register or Login to view links] too, which are held during the same week.

Additionally, so [Register or Login to view links] is going to be pretty crazy and even busier than normal, and I am looking forward to it a lot!

Oh, and before I forget, on Friday, March 27 at GDC, [Register or Login to view links] will be doing a talk about Eden and the use of CMYK in his graphic design work....

279w ago - Today Creat Studios Director of Communications Michael Robinson announced news that Smash Cars coming to PlayStation Network for PS3, as follows:

You're hearing it here first, that the next game to be released under the successful, critically acclaimed partnership between [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] will be (wait for it...) SMASH CARS!

A follow-up to the original Smash Cars, Creat's 2003 'no rules' RC (radio-controlled) racing game, the franchise returns to PlayStation and will be available for download during the second quarter on the PlayStation Network.

Sound interesting? Of course it does. So here's more details: real-time physics, innovative stunts and next-generation graphics combine into a dynamic, tricked-out single and multiplayer RC car racing experience where players twist and turn, grind and gear up, performing aerial tricks and stunts while racking up trophies and points as they race to the finish, all in an unlikely location.

Set on a beautiful and tranquil Mediterranean island, the fast-moving, bumper car gameplay style transforms this calm and relaxing setting into a dynamically frenzied raceway.

A high-speed mini car racing game with a distinct arcade...
