185w ago - Update: Jeremy Dunham has now confirmed that the MAG PS3 Patch v1.06 will arrive on June 8, 2010 and will automatically download to your PlayStation 3 the moment you sign into the game.
Sony's European Producer Elliott "Shijima" Martin has announced today that the MAG PS3 Patch version 1.06 will be coming in June, 2010.
To quote: Though we're still several weeks away from its release, we thought it prudent to give everyone a head's up on what we're working towards for our next MAG patch - and it's a big one!
Slated for sometime next month, MAG v1.06 will add a number of requested new features to the game that should please fans regardless of their play style.
Not only have we made it much harder to accidentally kill fellow teammates, for example, we've also expanded the Medical Kit's functionality to give users total control over who they heal (allies or themselves), while updating the experience system that surrounds it.
Other new goodies include improved vehicle handling and physics, new gun ports for APCs, weapon efficiency adjustments, credit cost changes, and updated medal and ribbon requirements.
Another nice addition is that we're also giving users...
186w ago - SCEA Associate Producer Michael Pulst has announced today that both a Hustle Kings patch and Snooker Pack is coming soon to the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: For all you Hustle Kings out there, we have two great bits of news for you.
Firstly, on May 19th a new patch will be made available which contains the following features and changes:
• Improved Breaking! Instead of the rack being perfectly spaced every time, a very slight variance has been introduced between the balls which causes almost every break to be different.
• You can now replay the shots that are played in attract mode.
• You'll see more stats during loading screens.
• Game options can be modified in online rooms.
• You can watch other people's matches in the all new Spectator Mode!
• Plus a new loading icon, viewing player's profiles during an online match, and more.
But that's not all, there is a brand new chalk coming to the in-game store: The Second Sight chalk allows you to see the path of an additional ball... really helpful on those tough trickshots and plants.
Finally (and the best bit in my opinion) is that the Hustle Kings Snooker Pack will be launched for PS3 on June 8th. Included in this great pack is a brand new environment, new...
