312w ago - Thats right, the RE5 Demo is now available on the PlayStation store!!

Download size is 942mb. To quote Capcom's Shawn Baxter:

Hey everyone, I'm Shawn Baxter (Snow) from [Register or Login to view links]. Our amazing Resident Evil 5 Demo goes live today on PSN, so I thought I'd tease you a bit with some of the cool things to expect, whether you're an old fan or new to the series.

One of the first things I noticed is how good the game looks. It's hard to get by the beauty RE5 has to offer. Better still, you get to play through two beautiful stages in the demo. Aside from the sweet graphics, there's plenty more that the demo has to offer.

For those new to the series, the controls can seem a bit different than you may expect. The RE brand has always forced you to take your time, stop while shooting, and conserve your ammo. It really helps add a sense of tension a normal shooter can't offer. But to help those who are new to the world of RE, we have new control types that ease things up a bit. M

y favorite is Type A, which is probably best if you're a fan of the previous games, especially RE4. Next on my list is Type D, which I find myself loving more and more. Type D is best if you're new to the game, and it offers something the...

Either way, we now have a glimpse at some information regarding a few of LittleBigPlanet's upcoming cheese-based patches.

Two new patches have also been revealed. Jarlsberg promises to add something to do with "2000 AD." Related to an upcoming content pack, perhaps?

Finally, Stinking Bishop will be linked to an "Arcade Pack." What that will include, we have no idea. But we can't wait to find out.

Obviously this is all internal data which may or may not come to fruition. Hopefully we'll hear more in the near future.
 

Are Sony the Smart Ones with the PS3 in this Console Race?

200°
313w ago - There's no doubt that Sony has made mistakes this generation such as underestimating both Microsoft and Nintendo. Another mistake is relying too much on the brand image and not pumping out enough marketing.

However, if you have a look at the bigger picture, I think Sony are the smart ones in this console race, and I'm going to tell you why...

The Internet has been full of articles on why the PS3 is in trouble and how Sony have made mistakes since it launched. So I thought it would be right to give a fresh opinion on the matter.

There's no question that the PS3 has had a rocky start; it launched with very few quality games and it was argued by many that at its inception there was very little incentive to buy the PS3 over the older and cheaper Xbox 360.

The Xbox also had more titles and many multi-platform games that felt so much better than their PS3 counter-parts. As we approach the PS3's two-year anniversary in Europe however, the console is looking very different.

There are many quality titles under the PS3's belt including some impressive exclusives like LittleBigPlanet and Resistance 2. With Killzone 2 and hundreds of other titles just on the horizon, why does the media still bash the PS3?

Could it be 'revenue related'. The huge majority...
