Embark on an epic adventure through beautiful environments and battle legions of troops to save the small country of Gallia from total destruction. Valkyria Chronicles™ is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s Europe on the verge of a great war.

The game follows Welkin and his fellow soldiers of the Federation's 7th Platoon that are fighting against the Empire, who is intent on unifying the continent under its power.

The emergence of the "Valkyria"- an ancient race with special powers thought to exist only in legends, turns the tide of the war and the Federation's ability to win and a hope for a better future hangs in the balance.

Features:

• "CANVAS" graphics engine: Cutting-edge graphics engine producing breathtaking artwork fully leveraging the capabilities of the Playstation3. Creates images that look like watercolor paintings in motion.

PS3 80GB Dropping to $400 in September, Will Replace 40GB

100°
336w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton announced today that the price point of the 80GB PS3 model will permanently drop to $400 dollars this September, replacing the current 40GB pack.

Tretton stressed that the new 80GB Core Pack will become Sony's primary PS3 model, offering "all of the same features and functionality" of the 40GB.

Does that mean no backwards compatibility with PS2 games?

To quote: No new SKU was announced, and the 40 GB SKU will be phased out, so it seems that Sony is likely moving back to a one-version console market. Unfortunately, the company did not make any comment on backwards compatibility, which is a key concern for buyers.
 

USB Version Fake M33 CFW Plug-In for PSP released!

336w ago - Dark_AleX has released a new Custom Firmware plug-in dubbed USB Version Fake.

Compatible with 4.01 M33, the plug-in allows users to fake or "spoof" their PSP's version number for PlayStation 3 connectivity.

Rather useful since the PS3 often times checks to make sure you are running the latest official PSP Firmware, which of course can be a problem if you're running custom Firmware.

Final Fantasy XIII no longer a PS3 Exclusive!

700°
337w ago - The announcement was made earlier today that FFXIII is coming out on Xbox 360 too. In fact, it'll be a simultaneous release on both PS3 and Xbox 360 for US and Europe. Today's Square Enix E3 press conference clarified a few details.

First: Final Fantasy XIII is still a PS3-exclusive... at least in Japan. According to Kotaku, Square Enix exec Shinji Hashimoto told reporters: "I think you are right [in assuming that (the Xbox 360 version) is not coming out in Japan.]" It will only appear on Xbox 360 in English-speaking territories.

In addition, Final Fantasy XIII will release in Japan first -- and then will be localized for the international audience. That means Japanese gamers will enjoy FFXIII on PS3 long before the rest of the world will see it go multiplatform.

Hashimoto says that the Xbox 360's large install base in English territories is what led to the decision to make the game multiplatform. Because the decision was recent, there's no way of estimating how many discs the Xbox 360 version will be.

Also, Final Fantasy Versus XIII is still in development as a PS3 exclusive.
