50°
324w ago - The Toys are Back Town! It's Week 3 of our 6 week Burnout Paradise 2009 blow-out! If you missed out our last exciting announcements, you can see them all here, in our Coming Soon area.

This week, we're showing the Burnout cars as you've never imagined them - Toy cars are taking over Paradise City.

Below is a screenshot to get you in the mood.

Regular Burnout fans will recognise 5 Paradise City classics - the Carson GT Concept P12, the Kreiger Racing WTR, the Hunter Takedown 4x4 and the Hunter Manhatten, but there are 9 awesome vehicles in this range.

We promised we'd take you into uncharted territory! In 2009, Burnout Paradise is taking a journey into the unknown. If you want to join us, just pick up a copy of Burnout Paradise on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, take it online and take you pick from the year's downloadable packs.

We'll be releasing these Special Edition Burnout Collectibles in '09.
 

USB 3.0 Details Confirmed, 5Gbps and About 12 Months Away

400°
324w ago - Just under three months ago a preliminary USB 3.0 FAQ was published, and today both USB 3.0 final details and a date has been confirmed.

USB 3.0 is set to arrive during late 2009 or early 2010. It will be able to transfer at incredibly fast speeds of 5Gbps per second, so that's about an average sized movie every second.

To quote: USB Implementers Forum President Jeff Ravencraft let loose with some information about USB3.0, which is expected to appear late 2009/early 2010.

It'll apparently be able to transfer at blisteringly fast speeds of 5Gbps per second (roughly 600MB per second), or for media junkies that's about an average sized movie or eight average sized music albums EVERY SECOND.

In comparison USB 2.0 takes ten times as long, and we pity the fool who's trying to shift this sort of data using USB 1.1 on a knackered old laptop.

Negotiations are apparently afoot to work out which operating systems will get the technology, though Microsoft is obviously at the forefront. The word so far is that at least Windows Vista should get support, if not XP as well.

To be honest if Microsoft is still trying to push people towards Vista in a year's time we...
 

Rumor: LittleBigPlanet on PSP, BottleRocket Flash Superhero Game

324w ago - If you subscribe to EGM, and you can look outside and see the mailman approaching your house, there's probably no need to read this story.

However, if you're one of the unlucky folks who hasn't got their hands on the new Watchmen issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly, this story may interest you.

A few days ago, we got the first scoop from 1up about the latest batch of rumors from EGM's mysterious Quartermann. Well those rumors are repeated in the magazine, but there is also a couple new, juicy ones that you can sink your teeth into; the biggest one is, obviously, that the Q-Mann heard from a source that on top of the release of new DLC, the Little Big Planet universe will be further expanded with a new PSP version. In the magazine, he says:

"The LBP universe will also continue to evolve next year with the release of the PSP version: Q-Mann hears it's fantastically ambitious and will further flesh out the PS3 LBP experience."

This would definitely be a shot into the arm of the lagging PSP, which hasn't seen a big release in ages. But who would make this game? Media Molecule? Apparently not, according to Quartermann:

"And what's next for Media Molecule? Suitors are lining up at their door, and we hear they'd like to bring their revolutionary concepts...
