300°
246w ago - Today SCEA Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo has announced that God of War Collection ships for PS3 on November 17th, and has also detailed the PS3 Trophies for the title.

To quote: Still wondering when you'll be able to get your hands on the God of War Collection? Well, wait no more. The God of War Collection has gone gold!

Fans can look forward to playing God of War and God of War II in stunning HD just a couple of weeks from now as the God of War Collection will officially be shipping to a retail store near you on NOVEMBER 17! Oh wait... there's more... we're also here to unveil all of the trophy goodies you have been waiting for!

To give you the low-down on how the trophies were picked, here is some insight from God of War III Design Director, Todd Papy...

Other than all the visual improvements that we added to the God of War Collection, the most exciting part for me was the opportunity to go back and add in full trophy support for both games.

Not only will the trophies hopefully be an enjoyable way to check your progress through the game, but they will also give the hard-core God of War fans some serious additional bragging rights. And on a more personal level, the trophies were a really great...

New NBA 2K10 Demo and Features Detailed for PlayStation 3

100°
249w ago - Today 2K Sports Community Manager Ronnie Singh has announced news of a new NBA 2K10 PS3 demo and detailed the features.

To quote: The demo for PlayStation 3 will be out October 15th. It will feature a one quarter match-up between last year's NBA Finals opponents: pitting the Orlando Magic at the Los Angeles Lakers.

You will get four of the most intense game play minutes to become familiar with the game and get a taste of why NBA 2K10 will be unrivaled in the basketball arena. It still amazes me how all ten of the players on the court match their real life counterparts, both physically and in their tendencies.

I probably shouldn't be surprised after watching all the development team's motion capture efforts from the past few months. It is no surprise that the game's artificial intelligence is more intelligent than ever and will give you the freedom to have complete control of the actual outcome and actions of your player and match-up. This season you won't just play the NBA, you'll TAKE OVER.

I also want to take the opportunity to explain modes that you won't see in the demo, but are among the finest features within the full game that hits stores everywhere October 6th. My favorite one is the new NBA Today integration. My biggest gripe over the years is that...
 

PS3 Reference Tool - DECR-1000A Backside Detailed

550°
249w ago - Sony's PS3, circa E3 2005 - it was great. Dual HDMI outputs, 3X LAN and lots more.

Last week we covered the PS3 DECR-1000A Front, and so today let's take a peek at the backside of Sony's PS3 Reference Tool.

We can cut right to the goodies! Back of the tool: starting on the far right features a power connector to the variable 100-240V PSU, for multi-region support.

Next up is the AV, there is your normal AV MULTI Out for standard composite output. Directly next to that is a TOOL exclusive feature, a DSUB connector for hooking up a VGA monitor directly, instead of using converters (if need be).

Below that are DUAL HDMI outputs, however after SDK version .85 output to the second HDMI connector was disabled - however all the hardware is still functional, so it could be enabled on a whim.

Next to the HDMI outputs is the Optical Output, just like on a PS3, it passes high quality sound to a receiver, not as good as HDMI, but quite well.

Next up - the LAN. Just like the original PS3 plan, the TOOL does feature 3 system RJ-45 Jacks, however the right most two are disabled, although all of the hardware is still intact. The other is used for the system, to access PSN and play...
 

First Look: PS3 TOOL - DECR-1000A Front Detailed

700°
250w ago - Earlier this month I purchased a PS3 Reference Tool Model DECR-1000A.

Today I had time so here are some details on exactly what the front of it consists of... I will do a follow-up on the backside and internals soon, and then we'll get into the PS3 Dev aspects of it.

We all remember E3's PS3 - Dual HDMI outputs for extra high-definition widescreen goodness, a built in 3 port gigabit switch, 6 USB ports - features that were trashed. But, on the PS3 Tool, these features are still present, albeit dormant.

Pictured below is the front of the PS3 Tool (click to enlarge it, so you can read the labels), complete with the hidden ports uncovered for you to look at.

The PS3 Tool features, starting from the front left - dual HDD caddies, both sporting a 400GB SATA Hard disk, with eject buttons. - the left most (HDD) is used for the system, while DEV1, holding BD Emulator Images - allowing testing of .ISO's right from a hard disk!

Below that, a Foot Switch Jack is featured which can be used for throwing exceptions for development while playing, among other things.

To the right are 6 USB Ports. The 2 ports marked "extra" were originally intended for the REAR...
