Sony: The PlayStation 3 is still a game machine

50°
378w ago - Despite previous attempts in promoting the PlayStation 3 as a super-computer, Blu-ray player, and multimedia device, Sony Computer Entertainment president Kaz Hirai recalibrated the PS3 as a game console in statements made during his Tokyo Game Show keynote.

"As the fundamental point of our system, I think [PS3] is still a game machine," Hirai said (via GameLife). "We want people to first enjoy it for the possibility of interactive games. If we pursue too many directions, people will keep asking us, 'What is PlayStation?'"

The PlayStation exec took a somewhat humble tone during the keynote while admitting that the PS3 hasn't had the best of starts. As a result, the company hopes to listen further to ongoing gamer concerns.

To start, Sony promised better development support in addition to continued support of the popular PS2. To increase the quantity and quality of available games, the company plans to share assets and know-how with third-party publishers.

Additionally, Sony will solicit feedback from publishers by setting up an advisory board to meet on a regular basis Hirai said.

WWE SmackDown 08 - Extreme Rules match

50°
379w ago - If you've played a fair bit of the earlier WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW games, you'd know that nothing's more satisfying than clocking your opponent over the head with a chair, pounding his face in with a sledgehammer or chucking his lifeless ass through a table. Sure, you could fight a (*yawn*) fair fight, but using items from a hardware store to get the win appeals to your inner extremist.

Recognizing how awesome hardcore wrestling is, WWE SmackDown 08 features the brand-new ECW Extreme Rules Match - the new screens of which can be found here. For the first time ever, you can compete in the violent, no holds barred environment that put ECW on the map (and under the WWE's acquisition). Under Extreme Rules, absolutely anything goes, as you can now choose which weapons to take into battle right from the Vs. Screen, something the previous games lacked in the older Weapons match mode.

Virtually every weapon in the game is available for selection so that players can customize each match to fulfill even their most sadistic needs. Perennial favorites like the Steel Chair, Crutch and Sledgehammer are represented, not to mention several ECW-exclusive weapons being thrown into the mix, such as the Singapore Cane...
 

Guitar Hero III Rocks The Mac And PC

50°
379w ago - Rocking out with a big plastic guitar will soon no longer be purely the privilege of the console owning masses, as Aspyr announces an exclusive deal with Activision to develop and publish Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock for the PC and Mac platforms this fall. Not only does this open up the game to a whole new segment of players, but if you've got a nice gaming laptop it essentially makes this the first portable version of Guitar Hero. On top of all of the regular features of the game, Aspyr's version will allow PC and Mac users to battle against each other in online multiplayer, perhaps allowing us to settle the Mac versus PC debate once and for all in glorious rock combat! Bring it on!

I hope this doesn't mean anything bad for Frets on Fire which is awesome!
