167w ago - Update: This rumor is now confirmed by lucasartsgames via Twitter, to quote: "Announcment one: Secret of Monkey Special Edition on PSN and Mac."
According to the GDC rumor mill, Lucasarts is planning a Special Edition of The Secret Of Monkey Island 2 that will be coming soon to Sony's PS3 entertainment system via PSN.
Kotaku reports that unlike last year's Special Edition of the first game that never saw the light of day on the PlayStation 3, this year's will make it to PlayStation Network alongside PC, XBox 360 and iPhone versions.
To quote: "We've heard from sources that the game is due to be announced very soon, perhaps even next week at the Game Developer's Conference, and that like the first game's special edition, will contain all-new graphics and audio.
Unlike the first game, however, this one will be reaching a few more consumers, with versions planned for not just the Xbox 360, PC ad iPhone (like Monkey Island), but the PlayStation Network as well."
168w ago - During a recent interview with GameTrailers (Part II is HERE), God of War 3 PS3 Senior Producer Steve Caterson may have hinted about the first DLC for PlayStation 3 when asked about cuts made from the video game.
Although it has already been rumored that God of War 3 will include challenge rooms as part of downloadable content, here is what he said when asked what was the hardest cut made from the game during its development:
The senior producer of the game has revealed that they had to cut a 'whole kind of epilogue' from the game, and hinted that we 'may see it later' which sounds very obvious that this epilogue could reappear as a DLC add-on for the game.
However, the exact reason behind the cut is still unknown so only time will tell if it will resurface in DLC format or not for sure.
169w ago - Update: To add more fuel to the fire, ScrawlFX.com has now uncovered a listing for Splinter Cell: Conviction in the Ubisoft Support center.
Since last year Ubisoft has been stating that they have no plans for a PS3 version of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, but now contradictory images are turning up in a Blockbuster Video ad and from Swedish retailer Game giving fans hope the XBox 360 exclusive is no more.
To quote: "Look at the scan below, although could be a typo, it shows a number of games and movies with the dates and times they'll be available, but what caught my attention was the Splinter Cell: Conviction listing that also lists PS3 as one of the platforms.
170w ago - Update: Sony's Geoff Levand has now confirmed, to quote: "SCE is committed to continue the support for previously sold models that have the 'Install Other OS' feature and that this feature will not be disabled in future firmware releases."
According to Owen Stampflee, a Linux Product Manager at Fixstars Corporation, Sony will remove OtherOS in the next PS3 Firmware update due to the recent GeoHot PS3 Hack.
Although this comes as no surprise to PlayStation 3 Slim owners, where OtherOS is already removed, it would contradict Sony's previous statement to standard PS3 owners.
To quote: "Everyone,
I've caught a rumor from a reputable source that the next firmware update for old PS3s will remove the OtherOS feature...
I'm not sure if it's true or not but it's in the best interest of the YDL community to spread the word.
