Noby Noby Boy Coming Tomorrow to PS3 on PlayStation Network

50°
288w ago - Keita Takahashi of Namco Bandai Games shared a new gameplay video of Noby Noby Boy, which is to be released tomorrow on PSN. To quote:

Come to think of it, Noby Noby Boy will be released on Feb 19th, tomorrow! Well, my apologies for the delay to those who have waited the game. Matching the release date with other territories was tougher than we thought, but the good thing is that I could have some interesting experiences in the game.

With Noby Noby Boy, you can send a message to other players while playing without going to the XMB, and the received messages are displayed on the body of Boy.





Checking the game spec, I sent a message requesting approval to add a friend and my request was accepted instantly, and I received a message. Below is an image of the message shown on Boy's body.

Surprise! It says, "welcome to paradise." It's such a worn-out cliché, but I like it!

Oh, I almost forgot about the game. Yes, the...
 

Gears of War 3 is Not Coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 Console

289w ago - I don't know how many times it has to be repeated, reiterated, redundantly reinforced and repetitively reproached, but gamers really, really need to understand that despite the hype, despite the news, despite whatever they hear or read from anyone else, GOW 3 is not coming to the PS3.

The rumors have been put out there but they also need to be squashed, and [Register or Login to view links] has aptly done so.

There was a lot of talk about Gears of War 3 coming to the PlayStation 3 ever since the Gears of War 2 writer, Joshua Ortega mentioned that the Gears of War series could expand as a video game franchise for about ten years. Sony often says the same thing about the PlayStation brand, which started the rumor that Gears of War 3 was coming to the PS3.

Just like God of War - and how Sony owns the rights to it as trademarked property and that means it won't be appearing on the Xbox 360 - so the same applies to Gears of War and Microsoft ensuring that it will never appear on the PlayStation 3.

Added to this, the rumor killer above pretty much lays out why Gears 3 won't be coming to the PS3. Besides, the only way it would happen is if Microsoft forfeited...
