Videos: Uncharted 2 First Online Reviews for PlayStation 3

300°
254w ago - Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has shared some Uncharted 2 PS3 reviews today on the PlayStation Blog... including IGN and GamesRadar, to quote:

Things are picking up steam for us as we head into the final weeks before Uncharted 2: Among Thieves releases worldwide in October. It's hard to believe that just nine months ago, we announced UNCHARTED 2 with our [Register or Login to view links] at the 2008 SPIKE Video Game Awards.

We took the next few months to slowly tease out more information on our single-player campaign until we dropped the bomb in late April that we were including multiplayer gameplay modes in UNCHARTED 2. Everyone at Naughty Dog worked exceptionally hard to get those modes ready to provide everyone with a small preview of what we were up to when we launched our Multiplayer Beta during E3 2009.

Not only did we feel great that everyone was finally getting some hands-on time with UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer, but we were equally stoked to end E3 2009 with over 20 awards, including 6 "Best in Show" awards.

Videos: PS3 Slim is Slower Than the Original PlayStation 3?

750°
256w ago - As previously reported, we know that the the PlayStation 3 Slim uses half the power of its 'Fat' counterpart.

Now reports are coming out of the popular Japanese blog Ore-teki (linked above) that the PS3 Slim may actually be slower than its bulky predecessor.

Of course these differences may be caused by differences in harddrive, but in this case the maker of the video claims the same 7200RPM HDD is installed in each... which leaves room for firmware/hardware variations or simply random fluctuations.

Whatever the cause, it seems unlikely Sony will be admitting any undocumented performance difference between the models.

Below are some PS3 HDD and Blu-ray speed comparison videos demonstrating the apparent differences:

Videos: Ratchet & Clank Comic-Con Recap for PlayStation 3

50°
261w ago - Insomniac Games Community Relations Manager James Stevenson has outlined a recap of Comic-Con 2009 Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time footage today.

To quote: We led off with some exclusive videos that those of you playing at home won't be able to see until the final game releases, one involving Captain Qwark, and the other an unlockable video about the Agorian Warriors.

Allgeier and company then discussed the story, and its theme of "throwing caution to the wind," especially relating to the effect of Ratchet being with an older Lombax for the first time. One of the early highlights involved a verbal spar between Taylor and Shimerman, using the voices of Ratchet and Dr. Nefarious, respectively, as they sat together on stage talk about Nefarious's temperament issues.





Discussion then turned to Clank and his whereabouts after being kidnapped at the end of Tools of Destruction. Bernal revealed that Clank is being held at the center of the universe (give or take fifty feet), in a secret facility known as the Great Clock. Clank gains new time abilities and has some brand new indie-inspired time gameplay.

Next came a topic that is a series standby: weapons. The beginning of the discussion centered on the Weapons Contest...
