Amazon Dates Metal Gear Online For November

250°
355w ago - Online retailer Amazon.com is now taking pre-orders for Metal Gear Online, the upcoming multiplayer-focused spin-off of Hideo Kojima's legendary Metal Gear series.

A price of $59.99 and a release date of November 15, 2008 is scheduled. They have also posted what we assume is the Official box art, displayed below.

Finally, Konami announced last February that gamers who pre-order Metal Gear Solid 4 in the U.S. at any GameStop or EBGames will receive free access to the Metal Gear Online beta test, which is set to launch in late April.

PS3 owners: Does the code 80010514 mean anything to you?

250°
355w ago - The Xbox 360's RROD has been the monkey on Microsoft's back for the past couple of years, but according to some reports, Sony has been dealing with some similar problems with the PS3 as well.

Complaints on Sony's own forums show a small percentage of users being greeted with 80010514 errors, and finding out that their Blu-ray drives are no longer functioning. A quick search via the information superhighway seems to indicate that Sony has not released an official breakdown of the code, but that it veritably indicates an issue with the Blu-ray drive.

To be fair, it has to be mentioned that isolated reports of this error have been around for quite some time -- since the PS3's launch, in fact -- and that we've heard nothing about it coming anywhere near Xbox 360 levels of concern. However, it should be known that at least a couple people on staff know of others who have had issues with their PS3's giving up the ghost.

Since I've taken a liking to my own, and I'm aware of a few of you owning the hardware yourself, I just have to ask: Do you know of anyone personally whose had their PS3 go on the fritz? Inquiring minds want to know.
 

Something new on the PS3 Settings menu coming soon?

355w ago - Don't ask how, but I noticed something different in this picture below.

What's that new icon above 'Game Settings' but underneath 'System Update'?

It looks very similar to the message box icon so could it be 'RSS Feeds Settings' or 'Email Settings'?

Hopefully we will find out in 2.30 coming out next Thursday!
 

Additional Refinements Coming To PS3 Gran Turismo 5

50°
355w ago - Gran Turismo 5: Prologue is probably the best looking racing game to ever hit a console. If you squint your eyes just a little, it really does look like you're watching real video on your PS3.

But when the full fledged GT5 finally hits PlayStation 3, it looks like the graphics may be even better than what we're seeing with Prologue.

"In terms of quality we've been able to establish a benchmark in this version, but I think with GT5 there will be additional refinements, perhaps to the lighting and maybe the weather... weather effects," Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi told Videogamer.com.

Yamauchi says that it'll be about a decade until we'll be at the point where games look exactly like CG in the movies.

"Real-time computer graphics are about 10 years behind non-real-time computer graphics like you see in movies," he explained. "I think that gap is what we'll be trying to fill in the years to come."
