Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip - Helghast Invade Sony's PSP!

50°
223w ago - Today Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda has announced that Helghast are invading Sony's PSP in the title Hot Shots: Get a Grip.

To quote: Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip is ready to serve a court-full of fun for PSP systems, and will be shipping to retail stores on Tuesday, June 29, 2010! And it will also be available for purchase on the PlayStation Store on the same day!

There will be plenty of posts coming down the web with further details, but let me share this golden nugget of information: this is an all-new Hot Shots Tennis cast in an all-new tennis adventure of the likes that you've never seen before (ever-ever times infinity).

First off, there is the new Story Mode, where you will travel the world spreading tennis love to everyone and anyone you meet. Part of the gameplay will require a certain level of exploration – its like Indiana Jones with a racquet, but with less ophidiophobia and more giant reptile costumes. Yeah, it's something like that.

Of course there will be items to unlock, this is the heart and soul of Hot Shots, so prepare your senses to manage the cornucopia of costume items, courts, and characters that will be coming your way (more on that later!). Just remember, every challenge will grant you new items to customize your character, and there are...
 

Rumor: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker May Get a PSN Release

400°
224w ago - The release date for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on PSP is a little over a month away, but the game may have a future beyond the PlayStation Portable.

According to GamePro's Ben PerLee, an interesting interlude took place during a recent Peace Walker Bootcamp, to quote:

"So after I had done the preview, [Konami] had a Q/A session with us to get our complaints/ideas about the game," PerLee reported.

"Other than the basics, they asked what we thought about if they released it on PSN for the PS3 as well and had online multiplayer."

While it's not uncommon for a developer to ask journalists these focus-group questions, it is interesting to note that the Konami representative asking the questions actually wrote down the answers.

It could just be that the developer wants to anticipate criticisms of the game in forthcoming reviews, or it could be research for Hideo Kojima's new mystery project. Or there could indeed be a PSN release for Peace Walker farther down the line.
 

SOCOM Cheater Gets Probation for Hacking PlayStation Web site

225w ago - Today Techeye.net (linked above) reports via [Register or Login to view links] that a 17-year-old SOCOM US Navy Seals cheater who got kicked off Sony's PlayStation site retaliated by hacking it, and as a result he was sentenced to a year's probation.

In addition, the Latrobe teen will also have to perform 250 hours of community service and pay Sony $5,000 in damages.

Apparently Sony asked for more than $33,200 in restitution, but the judge ruled that amount would be too excessive for the teen.

To quote: "Coppers claimed that the teen crippled Sony's online PlayStation site in retaliation for being kicked off the site for cheating while playing a war game called SOCOM US Navy Seals.

He used hacker tools to contact a botnet and these were directed clog three games on the PlayStation site, causing it to crash and go off-line.

Sony wanted $33,200 in restitution, but the judge ruled that amount would be too excessive for the teen."
