Killzone 2: Battle the PS3 Dev Team Online Tomorrow

50°
258w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Sebastian Downie has announced news of a Killzone 2: Battle the PS3 Dev Team competition tomorrow, as follows:

Many of you have been asking when we would have a 'Snipe the dev' event again like we had with Killzone 1 and Killzone: Liberation, and let me tell you that time is NOW!

Well, tomorrow anyway. Close enough. At 10:00AM Pacific on Tuesday, May 5 we are holding a "Guerrilla Warfare" event on the US servers to celebrate the release of our first DLC Pack: "Steel & Titanium," and to generally kick some ass.

I have assembled the most battle-hardened and skillful developers at Guerrilla Games to go onto the servers and take you through our two newest maps: "Wasteland Bullet" and "Vekta Cruiser," now available on the Playstation Store.

The developers at Guerrilla Games will be hosting some "Official games," which some of you will be able to join with passwords provided by the staff here at PlayStation.Blog. If you join those games, we'll take you on a tour of the new levels, talk about their development and generally hang out.

To receive the password and find out the room names, you'll have to follow the PlayStation.Blog Twitter account: twitter.com/sonyplaystation....
 

Video: PSP 5.03 (HEN) Demo Available from Team Typhoon

250°
259w ago - A new video has emerged on the Internet from Team Typhoon, showing off a new HEN exploit for the semi-recent 5.03 firmware.

Here's his little note about the video:

This is a demo of the 5.03 firmware running the tiff exploit and booting into a HEN environment on a PSP 2003 (3000 Support also) on 5.03 Official Firmware.

This proves that the code survives a reboot and the system software and MAC address can be changed. This is something that only can be done with a kernel exploit.





A video launching homebrew will be posted later.

Team Bondi Seeking More Talent for L.A. Noire Production

50°
261w ago - Every time we see the title "L.A. Noire" in the news, we always tense up in anticipation of bad news. After all, this is a project that seems to have struggled through a lengthy development process, and there was even talk of a cancellation at some point.

But as Joystiq pointed out, the latest update should be considered encouraging. Team Bondi (also responsible for The Getaway) is looking for plenty of talented individuals to join the team, perhaps in an attempt to push through the final stages.

They're looking for everything from animators to artists to coders to designers, so if you think you've got the skills, perhaps you'd like to apply. If not, and you're merely looking for good news concerning L.A. Noire, then you should be somewhat satisfied. Although we'd like to assume that development has reached a critical stage, we still have no official update on the team's progress.

Our last update said the game would be about a year away, and that was last fall; September, to be exact. Therefore, E3 may be the time when Rockstar announces a concrete release date for this long-awaited crime thriller, and if that happens, it'll be big news indeed.

Anyway, we'll let you know if there's any movement on the L.A. Noire front; at this point,...
 

Team ICO Set to Unveil New PlayStation 3 Title at E3 2009

100°
267w ago - It looks like we're finally going to be able to get a glimpse at Team ICO's ultra-secret game!

Sony's sure going to put up a grand show during this year's E3. Their PSP line-up is pretty huge as it is. And for the PS3, you can bet your last rat's ass that God of War 3 and Heavy Rain will be there. But what else is there?

Somehow, Sony's managed to keep Team ICO's secret game under the radar for months now. But in E3, it looks like the curtains will finally be pulled up.

The new game following the spirit of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus is now confirmed to appear in E3 in the form of a trailer and some gameplay footage.

Heck, we might actually hear about the new game even sooner, during GDC (which starts two weeks from now!). Though the new game isn't confirmed to be revealed during the event, Ico and Colossus creator Fumito Ueda is confirmed to have a keynote speech duing GDC '09.
