243w ago - Last week we read IGN AU 's E3 2009 predictions, and today Game Of Honor has shared their predictions, as follows:
The Electronic Entertainment Expo known as "E3" returns this June to its roots, set to take place in Los Angeles, California. Game Of Honor has listed what they expect at this year's expo...
New 20GB Silver PlayStation 3 Announcement
We expect Sony has been working hard on a new PlayStation 3 with a new model number and less memory, especially since Sony is releasing a silver PS3 controller in the US.
No PlayStation 3 Price Cut Announcement
Sony will announce a new PlayStation 3 model this year, and we believe it will be cheaper since its value will be reduced. It only makes sense, considering Sony is finding ways to make the console cheaper to manufacture. So that pretty much kills the rumors on any price cut announcements.
Semi-Announcement (Non Conference)
• Square Enix's next MMO unveiling at E3 2009
• Hideo Kojima unveiling Zone Of The Enders 3 at E3 2009
• TEAM ICO...
243w ago - When Home first opened to the public late last year, the public reaction was skeptical and negative. There really wasn't much to do beyond customizing your character and walking around. It seemed like nothing more than a glorified chat system.
As the excitement around Second Life collapsed and Google cancelled their 3D avatar project "Lively", people questioned whether there really was a need or purpose to these 3D avatar systems at all.
Now, Home's core feature set has improved, there are more spaces to explore, much more elaborate mini-games, and Xi is arguably the first piece of "destination content" that is really good enough to pull people to the system.
However, Home is still very much an unfinished work in progress with most of its potential unrealized, but it's fleshed out enough where you can play it and easily understand where they are headed.
Here are the top seven reasons that PlayStation Home will eventually be a success:
Disney World Epcot Style Entertainment Advertising
PlayStation Home aims to host lots of corporate sponsored virtual spaces like Disney World's Epcot Center hosts corporate sponsored pavilions. TV and print ads are becoming less and less effective, yet companies still need to show their products to...
243w ago - SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda shared the following this weekend via PlayStation Blog:
One of the new great features of Patapon 2 is the great masked warrior Hero Patapon.
Hero Patapon is a mythical creature (like a yeti, but cuter and real-er), with magical powers and a heart of gold. His fighting skills are second to none and it's rumored that he beat Chuck Norris in a staring contest (with one eye!).
True this: he is the most powerful Patapon in the WORLD!
So your question is: how do you tap into this awesomeness and channel his amazing-ness into complete Karmen oblivion? Well friends, I have two syllables for you: fe-ver.
That's right, Fever Mode, the magic point in time when your rhythmic prowess sets the Patapons into a frenzy is also the time when Hero Patapons special abilities come to shine. So here is how it will work: lets say you are headed down a jungle, spear in hand chanting Pata-Pata-Pata-Pon (march command) to you heart's delight...and then you see a Kachidonga in the distance...and you strike Pon-Pon-Pata-Pon (attack command).
Under normal conditions, this would set of a hail of spears and arrows from your troops, and if you are in Fever Mode, the hail would blacken...
