XP SP3 hits Windows Update, Vista SP1 makes a comeback

100°
346w ago - At last the moment you've been waiting for...

Microsoft wants to hit your version of Windows with an update, and this time you don't have to go rummaging around the internet to find it: just fire up Windows Update and let Microsoft do all the work.

After a few false starts XP users get the much-anticipated SP3 update, which promises speed boosts and some of the fancy security features found in Vista.

If you're a Vista user you're also in luck, since Microsoft has restarted its Vista SP1 distribution after some compatibility problems with Microsoft Dynamics RMS. Sounds like a party.

European PSN Store update for May 1, 2008

50°
346w ago - So far since the launch of the new PS Store, European has seen it's fair share of good quality updates. Certainly, the situation appears to be much better than before and SCEE seem to be coming good on their promise that they would 'sort the situation out' by the Summer.

It would be a shame, therefore, to see a lacklustre update this week, wouldn't it?

Here's the full list of available items:

Games:

Ape Quest (£8.99)

Add-ons:

Need for Speed Pro Street - Bugatti Veyron (£1.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Mclaren F1 (£1.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Premium Car Pack (£3.49)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Premium Car Pack 2 (£3.49)
Snakeball - Team Mode Pack (£1.99)
Kane & Lynch - Fragile Alliance Maps (free)

Demos (all free):

Ape Quest Starter Pack

Videos (all free):

Ironman movie trailer

Wallpapers and Themes (all free):

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Theme
Dark Sector Theme
Haze Theme
Haze Wallpaper

Obviously, anyone still playing Kane & Lynch can't complain about the value for money the extra map pack represents, but the big news of the week has to be Ape Quest.

Including the instantly recognisable characters...
 

Latest word on the Burnout Paradise Cagney update!

50°
346w ago - In Cagney we've changed how the cars are grouped for Ranked Racing. Previously, cars were grouped by their License Grade. In future we're categorising them according to their Boost Group where cars are grouped according to their top speed.

In races, the choice of a Boost Group will make available all cars in that group plus any cars in lower groups. This has proven to work really well as we have had some really mixed grids and close races with no single car having a clear advantage.

If you haven't unlocked a car in a particular Boost Group then we'll loan you a car for that race.

The car we loan you will be the next car you'll be able to unlock in that Boost Group (excluding Carbon and Burning Route cars.) Because all of the cars in Boost Group 10 are Carbon or Burning Route Cars, we'll loan you the 500GT from Boost Group 9.

The Cagney update has also revamped the audio for nearly all vehicles, features include: sirens on police vehicles, new cars, new cultiplaer challenges and much more!
 

MGO BETA gets new Map and Mode via Update

50°
347w ago - The European BETA of Metal Gerar Online has has been updated. The update includes a new mid-sized map called Midtown Maelstrom.

Also included is a new gameplay mode called "sneaking Mission" in which one player can play as Snake.

To quote: As for the new gameplay mode, we expect the Sneaking Mission to be incredibly popular for the sole reason that Snake is a playable character.

One player takes on his role, complete with OctoCamo, Solid Eye and other handy items (how does he carry so much stuff while sneaking around?). The aim is to move silently around the map trying to collect dog tags by defeating other players.

If more than ten people are playing then another player takes the role of Metal Gear Mk II in order to help out Snake. Meanwhile two teams battle it out as usual.
