Burnout Paradise Cagney Update Finally Hits XBox 360 Today

50°
298w ago - Despite being released for the PlayStation 3 edition of Burnout Paradise earlier this month, the content-packed Cagney update, due to pesky bugs that cropped up during Microsoft's routine quality assurance testing, still has yet to arrive on Xbox 360.

Good news is, according to developer Criterion Games, these bugs have since been eradicated and the 360 version of Cagney is en route for an August 4 release.

As a brief recap, the update brings three new online game modes to the table, along with two extra rides and 70 timed Freeburn challenges.

Will it arrive on schedule? We'll know soon enough...
 

Yoshida: Team Ico Has Something Really, Really Good on the Way

50°
298w ago - The new head of Sony Computer Entertainment Shuhei Yoshida said, in an interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine, that Team Ico has something "really, really good on the way."

The full quote: "They are working on a title. I started the ICO project. Ueda-san joined my team in Japan as a cinematic animator, but he created a short movie and presented it to me and said, "I want to make this game."

I said, "Yes, let's do it, but you have never made a game. We have to have experienced people do it," so it took a while, recruiting one person at a time. And because Fumito Ueda doesn't compromise, we had to move the development from PSone to PlayStation 2. Then I couldn't complete the game because I moved to the United States.

It took four years and the second game took four years too. So I started calling them the 'Olympic Team.' They haven't released a PS3 title yet - of course not - they'll take four years! But they have something really, really good on the way."

Of course Yoshida would say something like that-he kind of has to. But given the track record of Team Ico-I think we can take his word on that.
 

Site News- Attention All: Web server, RSS, Forum Issues?

50°
300w ago - If you, or anyone you know, is having trouble accessing our Web site or Site Forums please let us know and include the following details:

• PC OS (Windows, Linux, etc)
• Web Browser and Version (Internet Explorer, FireFox, etc)
• Geographic Location (US, EU, etc)
• ISP (if you feel comfortable)
• Firewall/Internet Security Software (Norton, McAfee, etc)

For the last week or so we've been having some Web server issues, hence the delayed Site News updates, ranging from our Portal to RSS and Forum issues. Our dedicated Newsposter Staff have been given the week off, while CJPC (who is currently quite sick) and myself have been trying to sort things out.

Everyone we speak with on IRC say they can access the Site/Forums OK, and we can ourselves, however, traffic analytics tell us over the last week or so over there is nearly a 50% drop... most visible accessing the Forums. Obviously summer is upon us and people are on vacation, but not 50% of the PS3News Forum Members are all at once

We are trying to troubleshoot this, and once things are back to normal we also have some nice PS3 Dev progress to share as well.

Thanks for your patience while we...

50°
300w ago - Make games. Make money. That's the motto of Microsoft's Xbox Live Community Games initiative, which will officially launch to consumers this fall, alongside the forthcoming dashboard update.

Developers will receive a 70% return on any game sold, with the remaining 30% going to Microsoft. Microsoft expects community-created efforts to "double the size" of the Xbox 360 library.

Rumor: PSP-3000 in Production, First Alleged Photos Surface

300°
300w ago - According to forum posters at PSPChina, the long-rumored PSP-3000 in is production and will include a built-in mic, along with minor cosmetic changes.

To substantiate their claims, one of the forum goers supplied a photo of the unit, which depicts a new button with the PS brand logo next to the two volume push buttons, in replace of the HOME button found on the PSP-1000 and 2000 series. To the right of the volume buttons is the microphone.

Keep in mind these photos are not confirmed to be the real deal and that they should be considered rumor for now. We'll be following up with Sony to learn more about its PSP plans and get comment on the authenticity of the photos.
