177w ago - Today SCEE's PSP European Product Manager Adam Grant has shared videos spotlighting five new PSP and PS3 minis that are hitting PSN today.
To quote: We have 5 great new minis playable on both PSP and PS3 launching today ranging from bouncing balls to street crime! Check them out below.
Archibald's Adventures from Rake in Grass
Archibald's Adventures offers a gameplay mixed of action and puzzle elements with gradually rising complexity. You start as a boy on a skateboard in a bunch of easy levels, but that's just a warm up. Soon you will roll in a robotic vehicle capable of riding on walls and ceilings, you will fly on a jet device or remotely control a mysterious floating bubble able to switch distant mechanisms or transport objects.
With 191 levels, the game will keep you entertained for many hours!
Car Jack Streets from Tag Games
After much anticipation, Tag's hit game Car Jack Streets explodes onto minis!

198w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared some pictures and recap videos from the recent Heavy Rain PlayStation 3 Paris launch party today.
To quote: As you already know, Heavy Rain drops this Tuesday, and that means this weekend's wait will most likely seem undoubtedly long.
To help ease the pain, PlayStation.Blog.Europe's Jem Alexander comes bearing gifts: videos, pictures and a first-hand account of this week's Parisian activities. Take it away, Jem!
I hope you're ready for lots of Heavy Rain content, because while we were at the big Launch Party in Paris this week we managed to secure a nice amount of interview and video content which should tide you over until well after the game comes out next week.
To kick things off we've got a short teaser video and some photos which should give you an idea of what the launch event was like. I would've loved for you all to have been there with us, but hopefully this is the next best thing.
The event took place at the Gaumont Cinema on the Champs Elysees in Paris, where David Cage (Writer/Director), Guillaume de Fondaumiere (Executive Producer), Pascal Langdale (Actor - Ethan Mars),...
213w ago - Recently many users have received their Netflix Instant Streaming Disc that began shipping a few days ago.
As mentioned previously, the disc is required to use the Netflix steaming service on the PlayStation 3 until 2010, when a Firmware update will take its place.
Below are several videos of it in action, the first is courtesy of otimus via YouTube with the other being from JoyStiq.
To quote from the video's caption: "If there's any stuttering in the video, it's not netflix or the PS3, but my Junky TV Tuner I'm using to record. I don't think I got any stuttering, however. We'll see!
Sorry for the lack of sound. I connect my PS3 via optical, and I was too lazy to go get an audio splitter to put it in the audio in on my PC to record audio from my tuner card. I have some real big issues with the PS3 netflix disc:
1) It renders video in 480p. The UI is whatever the res of your PS3 is, but video is downscaled regardless. It does NOT upscale.
2) Also, video ratio does not scale, like, for example, I have to set my screen to stretch for widescreen, and 4:3 for 4:3 content, else things...
220w ago - Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has shared some Uncharted 2 PS3 reviews today on the PlayStation Blog... including IGN and GamesRadar, to quote:
Things are picking up steam for us as we head into the final weeks before Uncharted 2: Among Thieves releases worldwide in October. It's hard to believe that just nine months ago, we announced UNCHARTED 2 with our "Cliffhanger" trailer at the 2008 SPIKE Video Game Awards.
We took the next few months to slowly tease out more information on our single-player campaign until we dropped the bomb in late April that we were including multiplayer gameplay modes in UNCHARTED 2. Everyone at Naughty Dog worked exceptionally hard to get those modes ready to provide everyone with a small preview of what we were up to when we launched our Multiplayer Beta during E3 2009.
Not only did we feel great that everyone was finally getting some hands-on time with UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer, but we were equally stoked to end E3 2009 with over 20 awards, including 6 "Best in Show" awards.
