186w ago - PixelJunk Shooters is one of the most anticipated remaining PlayStation 3 games waiting to be released before the end of the year.
The PlayStation Network exclusive title looks like it would just sneak into the 2009 release calendar.
Dylan Cuthbert, the President and Managing Director of Q-Games, posted the following comments on his personal Twitter page, to quote:
"all I can say is we're aiming for Dec. 24th in Japan"
Christmas Eve seems like an interesting release frame since most of the holiday shopping done from consumers are already completed. Even so, PixelJunk Shooters is shaping up to be another hit game in the popular PixelJunk series.
189w ago - Last year Sony Computer Entertainment announced that it cancelled production on two PlayStation 3 titles in development at the Sony London Studio, namely The Getaway 3 and Eight Days.
Just over a month ago some related video and media from the titles surfaced, and today GameSpot is reporting that The Getaway 3 and Eight Days are not abandoned after all!
To quote from an interview with Sony Studio London's Nicolas Doucet:
"I would not say they have been abandoned, just put to one side. Much work had been done. The studio just wanted to focus on its strengths, EyeToy and SingStar. Given the potential of EyePet, priorities have been changed, but the other projects aren't dead yet. Ultimately, the decision [to put those games to one side] has benefited everyone."
He then goes on to describe that Studio London have one other game in development but gives no details. He describes it as a "different concept".

However, during a Darkside Chronicles stage event at the Tokyo Game Show, producer Jun Takeuchi talked about new content that will be added to the 360 version of Resident Evil 5.
To quote: The new content that he mentioned was an added mission to the 360 version Resident Evil 5, which originally served a as flashback scene; with Chris and Jill duking it out with Wesker in the mansion.

Thanks for all your amazing feedback on our new "It Only Does Everything" ad campaign. Kevin Butler has been busy pushing the new $299 PS3, not just on our blog but on some of your favorite TV programs, and the reaction has been fantastic.
