Warhawk Command Center Goes Live in PlayStation Home Today

50°
299w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell shared news of a Warhawk Command Center PlayStation Home walkthrough video as follows:

A couple days ago I visited with Incognito studio director Dylan Jobe about the Warhawk space that launches today in PlayStation Home.

Dylan was nice enough to walk us through the Warhawk Command Center, and specifically through the Sand Table where you can lay out strategies for all Warhawk maps. It's all really slick, and Dylan goes into some great detail about how it all works.

Also, starting today you can purchase Warhawk for $19.99 on the PlayStation Store (that's $10 off!) for two weeks, ending on March 11. Individual Warhawk Booster packs are dropping down to $4.99, and the Booster Combo (all three individual Booster packs) drops to $9.99.





But remember, the special Warhawk pricing ends on March 11, so be quick about it!

Nintendo Wii Goes From Fad to Fixture

50°
309w ago - According to Canwest News Service's Vito Pilieci, the Nintendo Wii is no longer a fad. He notes that the Wii is now firmly established as a pop culture fixture.

He even draws a comparison to the iPod and says while the iPod changed the way people listen to music, the Wii changed the way people view family gaming.

To quote: When the Nintendo's Wii debuted in late 2006, video game industry executives and observers scoffed, calling it a fad that would quickly pass.

Three Christmases later, it's clear just how wrong they were. The Wii is, if anything, firmly established as a pop-culture fixture.

For the third holiday season straight, the Wii remains the leading choice for toy givers. Crossing so many demographic segments - beyond the narrow stereotype of young, gaming males - the Wii's been embraced globally in a way the world hasn't seen since Apple Inc. introduced the iPod in 2001.

It is like the iPod... I have one and I don't have a huge interest in gaming, being an older guy, said Dale Bradley, 44, associate professor in the department of communications, popular culture and film at Brock University. f you talk to someone who has a Wii, it always comes out that Grandma and little Billy were playing bowling. It's not the weirdo device that sits down the basement...

To quote: Hey there, Internet people, Nate Fox here from Sucker Punch Productions. For those of you who may not recognize the name, we're the guys who made the Sly Cooper games. I have the pleasure of being Game Director on our new title inFamous.

inFamous is an open world, superhero adventure where you (the player) get to experience first hand what it's like to suddenly acquire superpowers.




We've been working hard to get the game ready to finally show off and now that day has arrived! Well, actually it arrived early this week when a couple guys from IGN showed up for inFamous' first hands-on demo.

It was fun to watch the journalist as he climbed to the top of a building, spotted a thug...
