Military Madness: Nectaris Coming to PS3 via PSN

50°
281w ago - Today Backbone Entertainment's Designer Kyle Vincent Tunison has annonced that Military Madness: Nectaris is coming to PS3 via Sony's PlayStation Network.

To quote: I am extremely excited to be here today to re-announce Military Madness: Nectaris to the world! I say "re-announce" because the game was first brought to the public eye several months ago, but at the time, the game could only be talked about in terms of bullet points.

Now, I'm the lucky guy that gets to blow the lid off of the latest incarnation of the greatest turn-based strategy franchise of all time.

Believe it or not, the original Military Madness (called Nectaris in Japan) was released all the way back in 1989 for a magical little system called the TurboGrafx-16. While the system wasn't all that successful, the game itself became a cult hit. Why? Not only did it introduce gamers in the States to the exciting turn-based strategy genre... but it was both really fun and really deep (and thus ends our three sentence history lesson).

As mentioned above, Military Madness is a turn-based strategy game. This means you and your opponent(s) take turns moving your squads around the battlefield and having them attack each other. There are over 20 different types of units that can make up your squads, each with...

281w ago - I believe this will lead us to a very happy moment or very sad one. It all depends whether you are living in Germany or not.

Rumor said that [Register or Login to view links] got this item so-called PlayStation 3 Konsole Slim (PS3 Slim) uploaded to their site.

I wish this will be updated soon with a box art and more information.

Anyway, I'm glad Kotaku mentioned this news. We'll see the truth around August 18th.

To quote: Earlier this May, supposed "leaked" photos from a Chinese plant showed what's reported to be the PS3 Slim. The German Amazon site now has a listing for "PlayStation 3 Konsole slim".

Googling the product code number does not show anything else but this listing on Amazon.de.

Retailer listings of unannounced products are always fishy. Ditto for this.

Rumor: UK Retailer PS3 Clearance Indicates a PS3 Slim Coming?

50°
282w ago - To add more fuel on the fire of the last PS3 Slim rumor of a September 2nd European launch date, today comes the latest chapter in PlayStation 3 Slim speculation.

UK site GhostStorm (linked above) is reporting that UK chain [Register or Login to view links] are currently selling PS3 consoles in-store at a reduced price of £200.

When they asked the retailer a reason for the clearance, they were told, to quote:

"We are clearing PS3s to make room for any new products that may come from Sony in the future."

So the question that now remains: Is WHSmith privy to some information on an upcoming PS3 Slim model, or is their giant clearance exercise completely unrelated to a potential PlayStation 3 Slim appearance this fall? Time will tell...

PS: Can anyone else confirm that WHSmith is selling them for £200 locally?
 

Rumor: New Sony PSN Service Update is Coming Soon?

250°
282w ago - The Examiner.com (linked above) is reporting news of an incoming Sony PSN service update. Upon logging in to investigate further, the following are now shown under the PSN Services section:

• Screen: Media Go!
• Screens: PlayStation Store for Games 1, 2 and 3
• Screen: Video Delivery Service
• Screens: SensMe

It's no surprise that Sony is constantly expanding their PSN services- which currently include PlayStation Home, the PlayStation Store and a movie/television rental service (among others) as the PS3 is indeed a multimedia console.

What's in the cards remains to be seen, but until then some screens from the services detailed above are available, and to quote:

On their official press site, Sony has an official PSN tab and it lists all the available services for PS3 owners to take advantage of. Well, Sony just updated their press site and under their PSN service section, they list a new link that is tentatively titled "Coming Soon" - which is currently unavailable to open.

Will Sony be announcing a new PSN service in the near future? Or will it be part of the Thursday store update? I have high doubt it's the rumored PlayStation Cloud service, but it's definitely something. For it to be on the site now, Sony must be planning to...
