Jack Thompson is now Permanently Disbarred

250°
325w ago - Is it finally game over for Florida lawyer and violent video game opponent Jack Thompson?

Judgment has been entered in the case that started last year and came to a head when Judge Dava Tunis recommended permanent disbarment for the bombastic, showboating law man. The court has approved the report and has ordered that Jack Thompson is officially disbarred as of 30 days from today.

To quote: The Court approves the corrected referee's report and John Bruce Thompson is permanently disbarred, effective thirty days from the date of this order so that respondent can close out his practice and protect the interests of existing clients.

If respondent notifies the Court in writing that he is no longer practicing and does not need the thirty days to protect existing clients, this Court will enter an order making the permanent disbarment effective immediately. Respondent shall accept no new business from the date this order is filed.

Note that Thompson still has a chance for a retrial, only due to court sanctions the motion must me submitted by a member of the Florida Bar in good standing, and I don't know that anyone wants to touch this one.

Steinberg Outlines PS3 Advantage; Warns Competitors

50°
325w ago - SCEA's VP of product marketing Scott Steinberg outlines his vision for PS3's future, and the benefits he believes will drive it to market dominance

In a Keynote, he covers the benefits Sony will be promoting to consumers this Holiday season. They include PS3's Blu-ray drive, first party games, PSN's increasingly diverse product portfolio and community features.

Steinberg writes, "In the next few years, you're going to start to see us separate from the herd. Some of the other platforms are going to look very dated because their life spans are so much shorter than ours."

He adds, "If you're a competitor I've got bad news for you because we've got some absolute blockbusters that are in the works, some of them new IP, some of them existing IP, that we're building specifically for the PS3

"From a competitive standpoint our competitors are going to have a tougher road now then even in 2008. But for PlayStation 3 consumers, it means more quality and more choice."
 

Burnout Paradise PS3 Trophy Update Now Live, Not Retroactive

50°
325w ago - Criterion Games has released its update for Burnout Paradise on PS3 which adds Trophy support. Dozens of trophy challenges have been added, including awards for both the Cagney and Bike update content.

The only mishap though - especially for such a massive game - is that you'll have to start again to start earning trophies, because none of them are retroactive.

"We had hoped to use this to retroactively award trophies, but we discovered during testing that this is not possible," admitted Criterion.

"If you're familiar with PS3 trophies already, you'll recognise that this works in the same way as all other games that have added trophy support post-release," it added.

A full list of the trophies can be found on the official site.
