Rumor: Activision behind Rock Band PS3 compatibility patch delay?

50°
355w ago - If you own a PS3 and are at all interested in music games, you would know about the problem of guitar compatibility with the PS3 version of Rock Band, being that only the instruments that come bundled with the Rock Band special edition work with the game as of right now.

According to hmxsean of the Rock Band forums, a patch addressing guitar compatibility has been completed by Harmonix and ready for release for a week now.

However, something is holding up its release, and nobody has a concrete answer.
 

How to download Beats with a PS3 (not a PC)

50°
355w ago - Okay, so maybe you don't have a Windows PC that is capable of running the PlayStation Network downloader. That's okay. You may have a Mac, or you might be running Linux -- or you're just too darn afraid to install a new program on your computer. Whatever the reason, there is an alternative... provided you have a PS3.

1. Visit the PLAYSTATION Store (http://store.playstation.com/)on any computer. Complete purchase of Beats, but do not download it.
2. Log in to your PS3 using the same PSN account as the one used to purchase Beats.
3. Go to PLAYSTATION Network on the XMB. Click on Account Management.
4. Click on Transaction History.
5. Then, click on Download List. You will see Beats on this list.
6. Download to your PS3. Connect your PSP via USB and install your new favorite PSP game.

Hope this helps the few of you that simply cannot access the Store on your computer. If you're without a PS3 and a Windows PC, you're in tough luck for now. Why not just buy the game at a friend's house?
 

Eye of Marvel; PlayStation Eye playing cards on the way?

50°
355w ago - We've heard that Marvel will be releasing cards to use with the Eye of Judgement (or Eye of Judgment if you're American/Sony) next year to further expand the groundbreaking title's gameplay.

The new cards will feature all your Marvel favourites and will make use of the existing Eye of Judgement playing mat. Equally, the game could come out as a seperate Blu-ray disk or PS Store download but 'require The Eye of Judgment' in order to play it.

The way you play the game itself will change under the Marvel card set and most likely be supported by a future game update release. Assuming this is all true it would certainly make the Eye of Judgement less of a niche title and more of a mainstream winner, so we have our fingers crossed.

As soon as we get our hands on an official press release, this story remains in the rumor pot. If it were to happen, we expect it will go ahead around March next year.
 

PlayStation Firmware Interview: Faster Updates, Fewer For 2008

50°
355w ago - The interview was with Eric Lempel, director of network operations for Sony Computer Entertainment America, who I spoke with last week. Lempel is not just responsible for the PSP PC store. He's also behind any of the firmware upgrades SCEA issues for the PS3 and PSP.

Lempel and I mostly talked about the store during our interview, but late in our chat the topic of firmware came up. Why have there been so many firmware upgrades this year? What is Sony's current firmware strategy? And what kind of features are coming?

No, he did not say when customizable XMB will be implemented. But he was open nonetheless and suggests a promising, more user-friendly future is in the works. Here's an excerpt from our conversation, the rest of which follows below:

Multiplayer: There've been a lot [of PlayStation 3 firmware upgrades] and it's certainly improved the machine. I can't say that I love every time I turn my system on – well not every time I turn my system on – but when I turned my system on last night to check something needed an upgrade already. I just got 2.0.

Lempel: Right. Right. We're trying to certainly cut down on the amount of times we do it. But on occasion when we've got these good features ready to go, let's give them out to the consumers. Let's get them...
 

Preview: Burnout Paradise

50°
355w ago - Paradise is a very different Burnout game. The biggest change is that it's jumping on the free-roaming city bandwagon that every current-gen racing game seems to parade with such enthusiasm these days.

Unlike your Test Drives and Midnight Clubs though, the metropolis in Burnout Paradise has truly been designed for a wealth of things to do inside your motor.

Paradise Playground
On any road in Paradise you can activate 'Road Rules' with just a tap of the d-pad. Once activated, the best time for racing the length of that street pops up on-screen and if you beat it you 'own' that route. Take that online and you can see a huge friends list competition take shape.

Similarly, handbreak onto a curb and you'll activate the parallel parking challenge, another completely seamless batch of fun that has nothing to do with the game's main races and events, but adds tons of content to Burnout's massive metropolis.

While Paradise City is clearly massive, it's obvious that most of Criterion's effort has gone into maintaining this sort of immediate, accessible arcade action that Burnout is known for - and you're never far from something to do.

A crazy shortcut that has you smashing through scenery and onto a packed highway is always round the corner, and learning and exploring...
