Qore Episode 07 is Coming to PSN this Thrusday, and it's FREE!

50°
294w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi made the following announcement via PS Blog today:

We have good news for you this month. As our way of saying "Happy Holidays," the PlayStation Network is offering the Single Episode version of Qore Episode 07 (December '08) for FREE* in the PlayStation Store. So, this month is your chance to check out an entire episode of Qore starting this Thursday, December 4th.





Episode 07 begins with an inside look at EA's "Skate 2," the sequel to the game that redefined what it means to ride a virtual board. Then, Audrey Cleo rolls over to Skatefest '08 in San Diego for a spin around the boarding scene.

Next, Veronica Belmont makes her way to Capcom to check out two of their latest projects - "Bionic Commando," the re-imagining of the classic 8-bit franchise, and "Flock," a really cool PlayStation Network game that definitely does not follow the herd.

We also introduce you to the "Steam Punk" sub-culture as we take a look at Codemasters' "Damnation" - a post-modern third person-shooter served with a Jules Verne twist.

Of course, it wouldn't be Qore if we didn't have a few downloadable and playable goodies for you in the form of an exclusive...

50°
295w ago - Despite recent reports of Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon being cancelled for PlayStation 3, a THQ UK representative told Eurogamer (linked above) that it will indeed still be arriving to Europe as scheduled on February 13th of 2009.

To quote: THQ has clarified the situation with Destroy All Humans! Path of Furon - saying the PS3 version will be released in Europe after all.

Yesterday it was reported that the game will only be available for Xbox 360 in the US. Now a THQ UK representative has stated both versions are still on track for a European release.

"Destroy all Humans: Path of the Furon will be released on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 formats on February 13th 2009 across Europe," he stated.

"Due to the game being shipped earlier in North America on 2nd December a decision was made to proceed exclusively with the Xbox 360 format in that market."
 

Sony Talks PS3 Home, Coming By Year-End But Still In BETA

350°
295w ago - It feels as though I've been writing about PlayStation Home for years. I haven't, it's only been months in reality, but with its release being delayed constantly, known and unknown development issues, and questions still remaining, it feels like the service has been a long time coming. Which makes any official word from Sony very interesting indeed.

Jack Buser, the director of PlayStation Home, recently sat down with IGN to discuss Home. He talks about why we should care about it, what experience it will give us, and what is it with all these delays.

He explains that Home is going to be a place to meet friends online, to find gamers of the same skill level and into the same games as you. It's going to replace the arcade as the place to make new friends and share your hobby with them. All in all, Sony is excited about Home, and so, apparently should you be.

Great, so where is it and when can we, the great unwashed who haven't been invited to try the closed beta be able to experience the joys of Home? Buser claims the service is now entering the final stages of closed beta, with the open beta very close to launch. And he goes one further by stating:

"Like we've said, we're excited about moving PlayStation Home into its Open Beta stage this year. Once we make the...

50°
295w 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.
 

Super Stardust Portable Coming Soon to PlayStation Portable

50°
295w ago - Today Kimmo Lahtinen of Housemarque shared the following via PS Blog:

Hi, my name is Kimmo Lahtinen and I was the programming lead for Housemarque on Super Stardust Portable. Super Stardust Portable is the PSP version of our previously released PS3 title Super Stardust HD with some nice additions we think you'll enjoy.

And you'll be able to enjoy them very soon. Super Stardust Portable will be available for download on the PlayStation Store on Thursday, December 4th for just $9.99!





If there is one word to describe the game, that would be 'intense'. Your goal in the game is to simply destroy the waves after waves of enemies we throw at you and try to not get killed. If you're not constantly on the edge of your seat when trying to blow up everything in sight with dozens of asteroids coming at you all the while screen is filled with explosions and fireworks, you should probably apply for a job as an astronaut or something.

When we first got the idea from Sony about doing a PSP version of the game, we were thrilled. We think that Super Stardust is a perfect fit for a portable device, do a 10 minute session of Endless while riding on the bus into school. Pick up and play, it's like it was designed to be portable from the...
