Video: Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Up Your Arsenal PS3 Gameplay

200°
157w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Product Marketing Specialist Derek Osgood has posted up a new gameplay video today spotlighting Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One - Up Your Arsenal with These Tools of Destruction.

To quote: The first thing that comes to mind when most people think of Ratchet & Clank (aside from Qwark's dashing good-looks and unflappable courage) is the incredible arsenal of weaponry.

The Insomniac Games team has always prided themselves on delivering out-of-this-world weaponry that gives you all kinds of wacky ways to turn your enemies into space dust.

In honor of that long lineage of weaponry, we're kicking off our gameplay video series with four videos highlighting the weapons you'll find in Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.

Check out this first video in the series and get a look at the Combuster, Darkstar Fission Tether, Warmonger, and Thundersmack in action.





Don't forget to keep checking back here for the rest of our Gameplay Series as we highlight a different aspect of All 4 One with each video, including the rest of the game's unique weapons!

157w ago - Today [Register or Login to view links] has shared how to enable Nvidia's [Register or Login to view links] for PS3 Games using [Register or Login to view links] with an [Register or Login to view links] and PC.

To quote: Some PC gamers (myself included) like to go on about the huge image quality advantages of playing on PCs. Now, your PC can actually improve the visual quality of console-exclusive games! (outside of emulation)

I've previously posted about the small program PtBi that I use to display 360 and PS3 games. Today I added the ability to use NVidia's FXAA - thanks to them for releasing the code to the public domain and making it easy to integrate.

For those that are unaware, FXAA is a post-processing method that tries to reduce the amount of aliasing artifacts (think pixel staircase) in an image. It's similar to MLAA in that aspect. Like all post-processing methods that act purely on image data, it has some drawbacks:

- It can't handle subpixel aliasing well. (Unlike most similar methods, it at least tries to reduce it though)
- Sometimes aliasing may be detected incorrectly,...

157w ago - Today Ross McGrath of SCEE's PlayStation Store Team has revealed this weeks European PSN updates, as follows:

A few new PS3 titles for you this week - leading the charge is the hotly anticipated Section 8: Prejudice, fresh from a tour of duty on the other platform and raring to go on PSN.

And what's more, for this week only you'll be able to purchase Section 8: Prejudice with both of its DLC packs included at no extra cost - grab this deal while you can as it'll be gone before you know it.

Plus members get a little something extra too, as James previously mentioned, not only will Plus consumers get an exclusive in-game unlock but the first 1000 Plus members who are opted in for email who buy the game will get a free copy of the original Section 8!

What else this week? You can take your pick between a relaxing few holes on the minigolf course or defending your neighbourhood from bloodthirsty zombies - I appreciate that's not an easy decision.

Four PSP titles also take the plunge and move to Essentials today, so it's a great time to grab a bargain on one of these Disney games - we've also permanently reduced the price of the DLC for both Hannah Montana and Toy Story 3.

The LA Noire avatars make an appearance this week too, alongside...

158w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer SnakePlissken--PMW has announced news of an FPS First Person Shooter PS3 Homebrew Engine for Custom Firmware in development along with some details on the first game.

To quote: My Name is Snake Plissken. I am Chief Commander of a group known as PMW NATION. I'm currently directing our groups development branch into bringing to the PS3 one great first person gaming experience by means of homebrew on PlayStation Custom Firmware.

We hope to release onto the world a whole new concept in homebrew development on the PS3 by developing an "homebrew engine" that future developers can use to make homebrew with to be used on the PS3.

With the engine one could make your own First person shooter homebrew. It has been proven that other forms of homebrew can be made for and used with the engine as well. Not only that but This would offer a interface for developing homebrew outside of PSL1GHT for all types of CFWs (as we will port the engine to work with multiple types of CFW's)

Developers would need a way to install a .pkg onto there PS3s. They would then make homebrew in form of "recourse data" with the Gaming engine’s tool chain. that is then coupled and distributed with the engine.

A user can download the engine.pkg and insert it on...
