PS3 System Software Update 4.45 Released, Mass Bricking Reports

750°
75w ago - Following up on PS3 Firmware 4.41, today Sony has released PS3 System Software update 4.45 followed by reports of mass-bricking (with PSN temporarily closed via Error 8002A308) so currently it is advised NOT to install it.

Beware as it is causing a lot of consoles (mine included) to brick! There seems to be a glitch (pictured below) with a lot of users updating to that firmware and getting freezes after restarting. For those curious, the new update is supposed to allow users to 'opt-out' of the pop-up messages that you earned a trophy while playing a game.

Some reports indicate that this primarily affects those with 500+ GB hard drives, however, it is advised not to update to 4.45 until Sony remedies the issue. Currently they have rolled back to Firmware 4.41 meaning when you boot up your PS3 you will no longer be prompted to download the 4.45 update.

92w ago - Following up on Sony's initial PS4 announcement, PlayStation 4 trailers and PS4 game pricing, today reports indicate that Sony may start mass production of the upcoming PlayStation 4 video game console in Q3 2013.

Below are the rumored details, to quote: "Sony Corp. admits that it does not have a mass-production PlayStation 4 box that it can bring out to the public. Nonetheless, the company seems to be pretty open about its plans regarding the new system and its current state. While the price of the PS4 is something that has yet to be determined, some reports point to the company’s alleged plans to start mass production of the device in Q3 2013.

“We are certainly capable of showing playable game content, but we do not have a mass-production box that we can bring out and pull out. That is still in development in terms of final specs and design,” said Jack Tretton, the president and chief exec of Sony Computer Entertainment America,...

Back to the Beginning: Bringing Mass Effect to PlayStation 3

400°
103w ago - Mass Effect Trilogy External Producer Ryan Warden has gone back to the beginning on bringing Mass Effect to PlayStation 3 today.

To quote: I'm Ryan Warden, the External Producer for Mass Effect Trilogy. I've been with BioWare for almost nine years now - lately I've been working to help bring you Mass Effect Trilogy for PlayStation 3, and today I'm honored to be able to write a post for PlayStation.Blog!

We began work on Mass Effect Trilogy in earnest last April, shortly after Mass Effect 3 had shipped. The trilogy was complete, but there was a slight complication - there were people who had missed out on one (or more) titles in the series. Clearly this included PS3 owners, who had never had the chance to play the original Mass Effect. Mass Effect Trilogy was a great opportunity to rectify that!

We partnered with [Register or Login to view links], an external team with whom we've worked on many previous projects. Edge of Reality has a deep understanding of how PS3 works, under the hood, so we thought the project would be a perfect fit.

We had a huge head start because of the work we had done with Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 for PS3, but we still wanted to maintain the look and feel - the classic experience - of the original Mass Effect.
 

Video: Until Dawn PS3 Q&A: Teen Horror Goes SuperMassive

50°
112w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has posted up a video and Q&A today on the Until Dawn PS3 teen horror game from SuperMassive below.

To quote: Last month's debut of PlayStation Move-based horror game Until Dawn generated enough intrigue to propel the game onto at least one news site's best of gamescom list.

And after watching a 30-minute gameplay demonstration of this cheeky horror game at gamescom, it wasn't hard to see why.

The game oozes confidence and style: its immersive use of the PlayStation Move motion controller (from flipping levers to tugging zippers), rapid-fire banter, and unabashed reliance on genre tropes all point to a game that's determined to push horror gaming into uncharted territory.

It's important to note that Until Dawn is firmly a teen horror game, trading in the healing herbs and bullet counting of the survival-horror genre for quips, jump scares, and salacious scenarios that wouldn't seem out of place in Friday the 13th or I Know What You Did Last Summer.

After Until Dawn's gamescom debut, I had a chance to speak with [Register or Login to view links]'s executive creative director Will Byles, who discussed the game's genesis, HUD-free presentation,...
