Official PlayStation Magazine Confirms 3D PS3 Firmware for June

550°
216w ago - Today SystemLink (linked above) has shared a scan from the latest Official PlayStation Magazine (OPM issue #45) which confirms the upcoming PS3 3D Firmware update will indeed arrive this June (likely around June 10, 2010) as previously reported.

However, as expected, this PlayStation 3 Firmware update will only bring Sony fans 3D games for the PS3, not 3D Blu-ray just yet.

The only other information given is that this update will prepare your PS3 for 3D games, and another firmware update later in the year will add the same functionality to Blu-rays."

Amazing New In-game Alan Wake XBox 360 Images Arrive

50°
221w ago - Today Gamersmint shared some amazing new Alan Wake screenshots, which confirms the fact that this is going to be one of the finest titles to be releasing on Microsoft's XBox 360 this year!

The story will play out in an episodic format, with a television show-style presentation. Remedy has confirmed that Alan Wake is only the first season of a bigger story, opening the door for future sequels.

Light plays a significant role in gameplay and strategy. The enemies, called "the Taken" in the game, are sensitive to light, encouraging the player to take advantage of environmental light sources and placing significant emphasis on the flashlight as a primary weapon.

Players also have the ability to set traps that illuminate when triggered, either damaging or temporarily immobilizing an enemy. They are then destroyed and turned into batteries.

Finally, Alan Wake is slated for release on Microsoft's XBox 360 console on May 14, 2010 in Europe and on May 18, 2010 in North America.
