WipEout HD teams revealed

50°
363w ago - Sony's Studio Liverpool has revealed to GamesRadar the eight racing teams that will appear in WipEout HD when the game is released via the PlayStation Store later this year. They are:

  • FEISAR
  • Piranha
  • AG Systems
  • Triakis
  • Goteki 45
  • Assegai
  • EG-X
  • Qirex

    With the exception of EG-X (which is new to the upcoming PSP title, WipEout Pulse), fans of the series will be familiar with all the featured teams. It's also highly likely that this roster will eventually increase in number through additional downloadable content.

    As for which tracks will appear, so far we've seen WipEout Pure's Anulpha Pass and Chenghou Project. The developer is keeping the identity of the other six circuits a secret for now, although we do know that two will be taken from WipEout Pulse and the rest will be from WipEout Pure.

    We recently had a hefty hands-on with WipEout HD at Sony's London HQ, so keep your peepers on GamesRadar for a full report on how the anti-grav racer's PS3 debut is shaping up and if it really is just a port. (Clue: No it's not)

    Rumor: Sony to unveil PS3 rumble at TGS this week

    50°
    363w ago - Several online reports suggest that Sony will likely unveil PS3 rumble technology at the Tokyo Game Show this week.

    The rumor stems from a 1UP podcast published last week in which co-host Shane Bettenhausen said DualShock 3 is "confirmed" for PS3, and that it will be officially announced at the Tokyo gaming event this week.

    In early August, game developer blog InnerBits reported that rumbled-enabled Sixaxis controllers would be coming in two-to-three months. The site also said the announcement would be coming at Germany's Game Convention which wasn't the case.

    Following the report, Sony responded by saying, "We have not added rumble [to PS3], and have no announcements regarding this feature."

    Sony has been widely criticized for omitting rumble on the PS3, a technology which company vice president Phil Harrison recently called a "last generation feature."
     

    Free to play MMORPG headed to PlayStation store

    100°
    363w ago - If you love MMO's, anime, and/or not paying monthly subscription fees, you've probably checked out other "free to play" online MMO's like Ragnarok Online or Maple Story. No, neither of those are headed to the PS3, but Q Entertainment seems to be bringing a title named Angel Love to the PlayStation Store, probably in Japan.

    The game is supposedly going to be free to download and to play, but microtransactions on items will serve as a means to make money for the developer. No, not every item will require a nickel or dime. If you think back to Maple Story, it's probably like that -- buying funky clothing, super-special items and the like. Angel Love is supposed to land on the PS3 this December, most likely as a free PS Store download. No word on regions yet, though we wouldn't be surprised if it remained Japan-only. Still, it's free to download if you can handle not buying special items ... if you catch our drift.
     

    First public screenshots of Rainy Woods horror game

    50°
    363w ago - Famitsu has acquired the first ever screenshots of a new horror title called Rainy Woods which is headed to the PS3 and X-Box 360.

    According to IGN, the game takes place in the American west, with FBI agents and midgets. Rainy Woods is the setting of the story, which are, we presume, woods that are inclined to rain. Awkwardly enough, a murder takes place nearby and people think the "Raincoat Killer" has returned. Rain is a theme. The townsfolk call you in, an FBI agent who has a multiple personality disorder. As you travel the giant city and learn about the murder, you learn that something less-than-human is involved. Expect to chop up and shoot various critters of evil.

    Access all of the screenshots via their site linked above!
     

    Sony to launch $399 40GB Playstation 3

    50°
    363w ago - It seems I've come across more evidence to support a recent rumor that details Sony's plan to launch a "low price" Playstation 3.

    EMS Now, a site dedicated to monitoring the global electronic manufacturing industry, posted a piece regarding the news that Hon Hai will begin to manufacture PS3s. The site, admittedly, is boring to read much of the time, but, if you pay close attention to the facts mentioned in their stories, occasionally you'll find little nuggets of information such as the one below:

    Insiders in the sector said that Sony has cut the selling price of PS3 consoles, and, at the mean time, planned to launch low-price models, with ASUSTeK Computer Inc. and Hon Hai Precision to supply the models.

    The rumor originated when a "reliable source" mentioned Sony's changing up their Playstation offerings for the Holiday Season like so:

    $499.99 for the 80GB Playstation 3, currently $599.99
    $399.99 for the 40GB Playstation 3, currently nonexistent
    Spider-Man 3 on Blu-ray included with at least one of the PS3 packages
    $99.99 for the Playstation 2, currently $129.99
    $399.99 for a fully functional Blu-ray player and next-gen high def gaming console? Not bad, not bad at all... if true.
