Confirmed: Home is not part of PS3 Firmware 2.30 update

335w ago - According to a Sony rep, PS3 Firmware 2.30 (that will accompany the launch of the new PlayStation Store) will not contain PlayStation Home despite what rumors suggest.

Despite what some rumour mongers would like for you to believe, no, Home is NOT a part of this update.

And so the wait continues...
 

Lair patch now available in Europe for PS3

100°
335w ago - According to reports, a 150MB Lair patch is now available to download bringing analog flight controls to the game, a targeting icon and Dual Shock 3 rumble support.

It apparently is only currently available in Europe.

To quote: It's true, we didn't like Lair but that doesn't mean that we're not excited about the analog patch (calling itself 2.10) which is up now for download, and weighs in at 150-ish MB.

Update: wow, that was fast. Cool, Lair now has 'analog flight controls' and crosshairs in the options menu. Note that this appears to just be for European versions of the game at the moment.

Update 2: this is much better. Much. Might be time to re-review the game. Note that dash and u-turn are now mapped to the d-pad, too.
 

BBC iPlayer available on PS3

335w ago - BBC blogger Darren Waters has reported that the bbc's iplayer is now working through an unofficial website on the PS3.

To access it just enter http://www.ps3iplayer.com/ in the PS3's browser to access BBC content.

I haven't tried this myself yet and there seem to be some mixed reports coming through about quality. Either way it seems another cool piece of kit in the PS3's arsenal of weapons in the media centre war.

iPlayer can be accessed via your PC browser on http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/ or on your Nintendo Wii.

Tekken 6 Hands-On Preview for PS3!

350°
335w ago - Namco has always been ahead of the game in the 3D fighter stakes, owning two of the superlative stallions in the four-horse race - Dead or Alive and Virtua Fighter would be the only two other games that are in the same league.

And although its Soul Calibur series has arguably never hit a duff note (discounting Soul Calibur Legends in the same way you wouldn't consider Death By Degrees part of the Tekken lineage), its longer-running stablemate Tekken can't be afforded the same praise.

The series evolved seamlessly from its debut in 1994 to its seemingly unstoppable high point of Tekken 3, but then things started to go a little off-course with the follow up, Tekken Tag Tournament. Although not a bad game per se, Tag Tournament just wasn't the evolution fans were hoping for, offering up only a few returning characters, better graphics and a poorly implemented tag system.

And then when the fully-fledged sequel was released, it felt unrefined with sporadic environments and unbalanced characters. By this point, many among the 3D fighter hardcore felt that Tekken was no longer capable of reaching the dizzy heights of its heyday and were looking to the likes of Soul Calibur and Virtua Fighter rather than the up-and-coming Tekken 5.
