50°
350w ago - Criterion Games' next major download for Paradise City (codenamed: Bogart) will be available on PSN and Xbox Live on 24th April.

The Top 10 problems reported by you have been fixed, these are:

* PS3 game can crash when a player is taken down and the player that has performed the Takedown leaves the game.
* The game indefinitely displays "Connecting to Paradise City Servers" if it's having problems communicating with the rebroadcast server.
* Disconnecting the controller before a race begins can mean that race timings can be manipulated with players who didn't cross the line first being awarded the win.
* Repeatedly joining and leaving a game with 8 players can cause the game to hang.
* Hammering the A (360) or X (PS3) after unlocking a car can cause the game to hang.
* East Crawford and Watt St achievements cannot be achieved if the player goes online and sets road rules before attempting them.
* Audio distortion when using 5.1 / DTS and looking back at the car.
* Enhanced 360 streaming performance stops instances where the game seems to pause for a second or so.
* Total time driven in player stats would stick at 145 hours.
* VoIP connection problems with 8 player games. This is now live on the Paradise City servers.
 

Microsoft releases X-Box 360 HD DVD Firmware Update

100°
351w ago - In a surprising move, Microsoft has released a new Firmware Update for the X-Box 360 HD DVD player, which will automatically download the next time users watch an HD DVD movie.

The new update includes "compatibility improvements" for specific HD DVD titles as well as "additional support for network features," according to a post by X-Box Live's Larry Hryb in his official blog.

The update is widely expected to be the last Firmware Update for any HD DVD player. In fact, it comes as quite a surprise that an update was released at all, as Microsoft officially disowned the fallen format last month.

It is also peculiar to see additional network support as one of the updates, because most movie studios have stopped supporting online features on their HD DVD discs.

The update is available now from the X-Box 360 console and will also be posted on XBox.com "later this week," said Hryb.

351w ago - Per Grace Chen, Senior Manager of PLAYSTATION Store today:

Hi everyone. Just a reminder that there's no PLAYSTATION Store update today, but the Store remains open for business.

As announced last week, Warhawk is still on promotion for $29.99 (regular price $39.99).

We're working hard on getting the revamped Store up and running. Keep an eye out for a walk-through video next week.

In the meantime, take a peek at a few screens from the new interface.

Have a great weekend.
