142w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has outlined the SOCOM 4 PlayStation Plus PS3 Beta game types and play schedule today for fans, as follows:
Our first week of private beta testing for SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs has been incredibly helpful.
Though the participants were limited to the "invite only" crowd, their feedback has been phenomenal – with tens of thousands of posts filled with opinions, suggestions, comments and more pouring into our beta forum.
Starting today, it's time for PlayStation Plus members to get their turn as they join the existing testers for the next phase of our pre-release examination. Though similar to last week's schedule, this week's agenda is a bit different.
Here's what game types you can expect to see starting today:
• Tuesday (3/22) - Suppression, Classic Suppression, Scrum (Custom), Community Day Classic (Custom)
146w ago - Game Designer and Community Manager Arcade Berg at People Can Fly has announced today that Bulletstorm is now out on PS3, and he shared some tips to play like a pro in echoes!
To quote: Bulletstorm is out now on PS3! Its Echoes mode challenges you to complete levels using the most creative kills possible. Here's a head start to a high score!
Try and execute as many different Skillshots as possible on every single enemy. A lot of the Skillshots can be stacked with other ones. For example, you can get more skillpoints out of any enemy if he's on fire when you finish him off - this will give you +50sp for the "Afterburner" skillshot.
You could also do this while affected by Nom Juice, giving you another +50sp for the "Intoxicated" skillshot, and another +50sp if the enemy is also being affected by Puffball gas at the same time (the "Antidote" skillshot) - there are a ton of different possibilities. Experiment!
Every time you perform a new skillshot for the first time in an Echo, the skillpoints you earn for it will be multiplied x5. Execute as many different Skillshots as you possibly can to take advantage of this!
148w ago - Yesterday Sony Ericsson officially confirmed Xperia Play, which is arriving on February 13, in a Super Bowl commercial ad video which can be seen below.
To quote from Engadget: Sony Ericsson has finally stopped teasing, winking, and nodding knowingly and has just come clean - the Xperia Play is most definitely real and it'll be one of the first devices announced at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
We're treated to a date and time, February 13th at 6PM GMT, a pair of full frontal shots of the Gingerbread-running, gamepad-wearing smartphone, and the full version of that creepy ad we saw for it a couple of days back.
