Resident Evil 5 Demo Confirmed, Coming to PlayStation Network

50°
322w ago - Earlier this week, Famitsu Weekly confirmed that a demo of Capcom's highly anticipated Resident Evil 5 would be coming to the Japanese XBox Live Marketplace on December 5.

Confusion arose as to whether the demo would be limited to Japan and only the XBox Live Marketplace.

Capcom, however, has confirmed that the demo will be appearing on both the PSN and XBox Live Marketplace, and in all major regions as well.

The demo, however, will not be launching simultaneously worldwide, and as of right now, there is no word on the western release date.

Street Fighter HD Hits PlayStation Network - It's Finally Here

300°
322w ago - Capcom's John Diamonon shared the following today via PS Blog:

Joe Esposito once eloquently proclaimed that "History repeats itself" and it's an honor for me to announce that Street Fighter returns today on the PlayStation Network. On a personal note, it's been a dream of mine to work on this franchise. I remember going to the local 7-11 and spending hours trying to pull off an invisible throw or handcuff glitch.

I remember sharing theories with my friends that it was possible to throw that rock in the Chun-Li stage, pull out Guile's gun, control Ryu's red fireballs or defeat the mysterious Sheng Long. Street Fighter was a cultural phenomenon not seen since the days of Pac Man. Here we are, almost 20 years later, and this franchise is as relevant as ever.

Here's the final HD Remix video for your viewing pleasure.





Enough of my reminiscing. I'm here to talk about the next installment of the SF2 series; Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Special Champion Hyper Alpha EX Versus Zero Plus Collection Edition (am I missing anything?). Ah Capcom, we love long game titles. I can go on and on about the many features of this game, but instead, I'll provide you this link that contains all you need to know about HD Remix....
 

Will PlayStation Network Finally Get Custom Avatars?

200°
322w ago - Now that the "new" PlayStation.com has launched, and with the PlayStation Network fully integrated into the site and forums, there is one thing that is blatantly missing... That one thing is avatars.

Avatars are defined as a "user's representations of himself/herself or alter ego". Part of what makes the Internet so special, is that things such as "avatars" let users basically be anything they want to be.

So why on the PlayStation Network are we forced to choose from a set of 200+ avatars, most of which are horrible and no one would actually want to use? The offering Sony has given us certainly doesn't represent us gamers, or PlayStation fans at all.

Sure there are some bearable avatars out there, like the Motorstorm avatar, or a Nathan Hale avatar, but since they are the only decent avatars, it's not uncommon for 15 of your PSN friends to have the same exact avatar as you.

The old PlayStation.com forums allowed you to upload your own avatar (after a certain post count), now that the PlayStation Network has merged with the PlayStation.com forums, will that mean we will get to upload our own avatars soon?

No word yet from Sony, but lets hope...
