New Satin Silver PS3 For Japan

50°
338w ago - Guess having a black and white PS3 wasn't enough for Japan. Sony have announced that, on March 6, Japan will get a "Satin Silver" PS3. Retailing for „39,980 (USD$374), it's the standard 40GB setup, and of course the bundled DualShock 3 SIXAXIS will be in silver as well.

Looks pretty classy! I've got the satin silver PS2, and it's stood the test of time quite well. Only thing left to do now is for Western fans of colour variation to wonder out loud why Japan's on its third colour scheme while we're still (for the mean time) on our first. Presser follows.

UPDATE - That controller pictured above isn't actually a DualShock3! For some reason, despite releasing the silver version of their updated controller on the same day, Sony are not including a DualShock 3 with the new console. No, instead it'll come with an already-outdated SIXAXIS. If they want a silver DS3 to match their silver PS3, Japanese consumers are going to have to fork out an additional „5500 (USD$50). Blergh.

See? No "DualShock 3" text under the blue "Sixaxis" means no included DualShock 3

Tokyo, February 5, 2008 - Sony Computer Entertainment Japan (SCEJ), a division of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) responsible for business operations in Japan, today announced that it would release PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3®)...

Critical Reception: Capcom's Devil May Cry 4

100°
338w ago - This week's edition of the regular Critical Reception column examines online reaction to Devil May Cry 4 Capcom's action franchise sequel that "delivers polished, fiendish thrills that eclipse other games in the series, and almost all contemporaries in the genre," according to reviews.

After finding success on the PlayStation 2, Capcom's Devil May Cry franchise makes its multiplatform debut on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with Devil May Cry 4. This new entry notably replaces the series' standard and well-liked protagonist Dante with a new character named Nero, who possesses an entirely different array of weaponry and abilities.

Though Dante remains playable in portions of Devil May Cry 4, series fans have wondered if Nero would be as likeable a character as Dante, and have expressed concern over the resulting shift in gameplay technique. Critics have responded well to the change thus far, and average a score of 84 out of 100 at Metacritic.com.

Joe Juba at Game Informer rates Devil May Cry 4 at 9 out of 10, emphasizing that Nero is a good fit for the franchise. "I'll just get this out of the way: Nero is awesome," he assures. "Any reservations fans may have about the young upstart replacing Dante as the main hero will evaporate in the first hour of Devil May Cry 4."

Resistance: FoM Network Update Vulnerability

100°
338w ago - As you know, the Resistance: Fall of Man game updates via PlayStation Network. The resident PS3 Devs (Subdub and Gigi) discovered this nearly 6 months ago and others (Placa, to name just one) soon after, it's just another rehash of the old Warhawk method (detailed here and here), but more constrained.

For example, using the Warhawk hole users could change directories, in the R:FOM one you can't. In layman's terms, it means this R:FOM method is even more limited/useless than the Warhawk one was. Of course to those who just recently discovered it- this is being incorrectly labeled as something useful when it sadly isn't at all.

However, since Sony plugged the Warhawk hole in a past Firmware Update, most of the devs opted to keep quiet until tonight... as now this hole will certainly be addressed in an upcoming Firmware Update as it is indeed a security issue to Sony.

It's a fairly simple method. Using your favorite DNS "hijack" method, or proxy server redirect download-prod.online.scea.com...
 

Rock Band mod adds actual guitar string, class to axe

100°
338w ago - For Rock Band players that have also had some experience with a bona fide six-string, getting used to that plastic strum bar can take some work.

For one gamer in particular, he decided to spend that time doing something a bit more productive than getting acclimated, like adding in an actual guitar string.

There's also a switch mechanism that gets triggered by said string, which then sends an input to the game. Pretty swank, we say -- check out the video for yourself after the jump!
