PS3 Challenge - MotorStorm: Pacific Rift - Can You Beat Us?

50°
323w ago - MotorStorm: Pacific Rift's Game Director Nigel Kershaw issued a challenge today for fans as follows:

So MotorStorm: Pacific Rift has been out a couple of weeks, and we're all back from our vacations, rested, refreshed and ready to give you a run for your money on the online leaderboards in Time Attack.

If you're not familiar with Time Attack in the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, it's a game mode where you attempt to get the best lap time possible using one of the vehicle classes on one of the 16 racetracks in the game.

It's different than regular MotorStorm racing, as it's just you on the track with no opponents to worry about, and it's all about getting around the track in one piece. If you crash or manually reset the track during the course of a lap, then that time will not be uploaded to the online leaderboards.

There is a different board for each of the eight vehicle classes on each of the tracks, as well as an overall board for each track showing the very fastest times regardless of vehicle used.

Since launch we have had an embargo on members of staff posting to the Time Attack leaderboards, in order to give you guys a chance to get comfortable with the game.

Now that embargo has been lifted, and we'll be on there looking to give...
 

Resident Evil 5: Both PS3 and 360 Versions to Look Near Identical

100°
323w ago - A couple of weeks ago, we got the opportunity to visit Milestone and spend some quality time with the latest entry in Capcom's survival horror series - Resident Evil.

The build we played was the same one that was presented at this year's Tokyo Game Show. The demo featured two short levels and also gave us the first glimpse into the newly introduced co-op mode.

As you may know, one of the biggest changes in Resident Evil 5 is the inclusion of co-op. For the first time in the Resident Evil series (Outbreak doesn't count), you can play through the campaign co-operatively. The second character introduced is Sheva.

The campaign can be played either online, split-screen or via system link. In case you don't have anyone to play with, the game will take control of the second character. The friendly AI that controls Sheva does a wonderful job; she'll constantly heal you, provide you with different items (ammo included) and most importantly, she can hold her own when surrounded by enemies.

Sunlight is not something that you would normally associate with a Resident Evil game, or any horror game for that matter. But Resident Evil 5 changes all that. Both the levels we played took place in an unnamed African nation in broad daylight. According to the producers, sunlight will play...

Sony Says More PSOne Games on PlayStation Network Soon

50°
323w ago - Sony's director of hardware marketing, John Koller, has stated that they working on further PSOne additions to the US PlayStation Store and they should be arriving shortly.

To quote: There are many classic PS One games available to download through PlayStation Network in Japan, but we've seen barely any here in the United States (does anyone want to play "2 Xtreme," anyway?)

I didn't ask John Koller, the head of hardware marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, whether this was changing when we spoke earlier this week. My bad, readers.

But he did follow-up over e-mail last night.

"Yes, we are working on further PSone additions to the PS Store and should see those launch shortly," he said.
