LG Wins Injunction Against Sony, PS3 European Shipments Seized

1100°
163w ago - As a follow-up to our previous article, today the civil court of justice in the Hague has granted LG a preliminary injunction that will see all new PlayStation 3 consoles imported into Europe confiscated by customs for at least ten days leaving only a few weeks worth of PS3 stock left in the channel.

To quote from MCVUK: "Shipments of PS3 consoles have been seized by European customs officers as an LG injunction against Blu-ray technology seeks to block Sony products from sale, according to a report in The Guardian this afternoon.

Earlier this month, LG had filed a claim with the International Trade Commission calling for a block on PS3 sales, saying the device infringes on its copyrights.

The technology firm claims its rival's Blu-ray disc devices use four patented technologies while, Bravia TVs infringe another four.

At the time, the firm said it wanted to have sales of the PS3 (which plays Blu-rays) and other products banned.

And now, surprisingly, its got its way. The Guardian reports that an initial injunction has now been granted by the civil court of justice in the Hague, leading to all new imports of PS3s to be confiscated."

Video: The UnderGarden is Coming to PSN This Winter

170w ago - Today Vitamin-G's Head of Engineering Antonio Santamaria has revealed that The UnderGarden is coming to PSN this Winter and shared a video of the game in action.

To quote: Welcome to The UnderGarden. We at Vitamin G Studios are excited to introduce you to our new game, coming to PSN this winter.

The UnderGarden is about exploration. It's part game and part experience, with a little bit of puzzle solving mixed in. The game takes place across different worlds of windy tunnels, dark places filled with fog, and areas where electricity turns large rock gears endlessly. As the player, you float through these dark caverns, and fill them with color and music.

You'll need to collect pollen to grow beautiful flowers and exotic plants. Some of these plants bear fruit, used to manipulate doors, levers, gears, and other contraptions you find along the way. There are also special items to collect, and new flora and fruit to discover, and as they bloom the lighting and animations make the entire environment spring to life.





Music also plays a huge part in the game, and almost everything you touch makes different musical tones. As you...

200°
171w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Aryeh Loeb has shared a Killzone 3 PS3 Story trailer video today revealing Malcolm McDowell and Ray Winstone to lead the Helghast.

To quote: You've seen footage of Killzone 3's jetpack-fueled aerial combat along the Frozen Shores of Helghan, and you've seen glimpses of the incredible showdown against the titanic MAWLR.

Now, meet the key players of the Killzone 3 campaign mode in this explosive new story trailer!

Along with familiar faces from Killzone 2 such as Sev, Rico and Narville, you'll find a couple of fresh ones: the resourceful female ISA member Jammer, as well as the hopeful heirs to Visari's throne, Jorhan Stahl and Admiral Orlock. When the latter two lock horns, their actions will shape Helghan's destiny - as well as the future of the ISA members still trapped there.





Since Brian Cox's performance as Scolar Visari is a tough act to follow, Guerrilla signed on two veteran actors for the roles of his successors in the English version of Killzone 3: Malcolm McDowell, who plays the scheming Stahl Arms CEO, and...
 

Video: LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 BETA - Windows: LBP Edition Creation

350°
172w ago - Recently BludgaBoy has shared a LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 BETA - Windows: LBP Edition Creation video showcasing the work of Boss_Mob, SaggySackBoy, tomatenbrei and daFRED94.

While the game isn't available until later this month, those interested can check it out below.

To quote from Kotaku: "This Windows XP homage, built in the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta, won't run a copy of Excel or PowerPoint, but it does do a reasonably good impersonation of the operating system's desktop, start menu, built-in timewaster games and, naturally, a blue screen of death."

Finally, from the video's caption: "It works... well, *almost* perfectly (just like the real Windows, there are some kinks in the works), and it's an extremely accurate re-creation, right down to the log in noise. You've got pictures, music, videos; even some built in games for you to play! Who needs the NT kernel or C++ when you've got LittleBigPlanet 2?"
