37w ago - Today Community Manager CCP CmdrWang has officially introduced Dust 514's Instant Battle Matchmaker with details below.
To quote: Human beings are hunters at heart. We were hunter-gatherers well before we invented computers, after all.
And what better place to practice our ancestral instinct than in a MMO shooter where we can stalk, pounce upon and kill our prey so that we can safely and legally experience the thrills and complexities of the hunt.
This sublime experience even has a name : the ancient Greeks called this "arete" and used it to describe the excellence and beauty that can arise between combatants of equal stature.
Of course, part of this excellence comes with the assumption of a fight between two equally matched combatants; it would seem that our ancestors, too, preferred a fair fight. But in the real world, we are too often reminded that all is fair in love and war, and as many of you already know, Dust 514 is about war (okay, there is love too).
However, this does not mean that "arete" has no place in Dust 514. Like the Olympics, we want to offer players a chance to compete on a fair and equal footing where it is less about the gear and more about the skill and mental resilience to win the fight.
41w ago - Today Sony Producer Yoshikazu Matsuhana of the Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Project has officially revealed the Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Trophy List!
To quote: Did you all experience Metal Gear Solid 4 back in 2008? Or maybe for some reason you missed it? The Trophy system was introduced to PS3 in the middle of 2008.
However, by that time, MGS4 had already finished development and was about to launch, so we were regrettably unable to implement Trophies at launch. But, we've always had it on our to-do list and users have given us continuous feedback requesting Trophies over the years.
For all those who have asked "where are the Trophies?" we are very sorry for the long wait. However, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear series, we are very pleased to announce that trophies will finally be coming to MGS4 in the beginning of August!
Furthermore, retail versions of the game in stores will be updated to offer native Trophy support out of the box.
For loyal fans and new players alike, there's never been a better time to relive the experience of MGS4. The timeless PS3 classic is back - now with full Trophy support!!

To quote: Ni Hao PlayStation Playas, this is John Diamonon, the Brand Manager for Resident Evil in North America, and it's been a while my friends.
Last time I was here, I announced MvC3 and you were all like, "Yeah!" This time, I have news that's gonna make you say, "EFF yeah!"
It's my pleasure to announce that the next installment of the canonical Resident Evil series, Resident Evil 6, returns on November 20, 2012.
That gives you a whole month to enjoy the game (enjoy life really) before the end of the Mayan calendar when the real zombie apocalypse happens. We figure you might need some practice killing the infected to prepare yourself.
Oops. Did I say zombies? Resident Evil 6 has zombies? Watch the trailer and find out.
WHAAAAATTTTT??? Man, when I had hair in the 90's, it looked exactly like Leon's. I seriously think there's No Hope Left for his doo. He needs a fade or something.
Anyway, comment below and tell me what you think. Oh. It might be a day before I get...
