UK PS Store is hiding a PSP secret

50°
346w ago - Sony is being very good to PSP owners right before the Thanksgiving holiday. Not only did the PlayStation Store launch yesterday to allow access from your PC, but the company also decided to plant an easter egg for those curious enough to browse the store. This easter egg came in the form of a new trailer for a game called "Beats" that was hidden by Sony within the PSP game trailers section.

Shortly after releasing the trailer, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe launched the downloadable game "Beats" through the UK PlayStation Store with a price tag of GBP 4.99. The game is great for music fans that have their music collection on their PSP. Beats is based almost completely on the playback of your personal music collection, taking any song and turning it into gameplay.

The game is similar to DDR and DJ Max Portable as it uses beat tracking technology to create button-press sequences for each song in your personal music collection. The trailer provides details on two different modes labeled "Jamming" and "Challenge". It also appears that the game will allow a wide array of customization options so that you are able to change your background and visual style.

Multiplayer is available locally for 1-4 players and details on the Official UK page state that the title allows for game sharing (players...

346w ago - Update: v3.81 is out which fixes a few bugs. Grab it here: v3.81 Update / v3.81 Update [Mirror] / v3.81 Full / v3.81 Full [Mirror]

v3.81 Changes:

  • Fixed a critical bug in the iR Shell firmware patch which results in unable to launch UMD in XMB and also causes various incompatibility issues with other homebrew apps & seplugins. Just apply the new patch and all issues will be resolved.
  • Fixed a bug in Contect Menu which wouldn't allow you to choose "Select" or "Start" menu items.

    AhMan has just released a new version of iR Shell that adds support for the PSP Slim, along with various other new features. iR Shell is a multi-tasking shell that allows users to run UMD games and homebrew, among many other things via user-friendly menu interface.

    He notes that all existing and new features are the same between the Phat and the Slim with the exception of the Slim not being able to use the Infra-Red remote (since the Slim does not have an Infra-Red port).

    Fatal Inertia PS3 Coming Spring 2008

    50°
    346w ago - Oh, Fatal Inertia. Once announced as a PlayStation 3 exclusive launch title by Koei, the Unreal Engine 3-powered racer eventually went multi-platform and released on Xbox 360 first, while the company struggled to get the PS3 version up to speed. The recent completion of Unreal Tournament III on PS3 means studios should have an easier time developing on Sony's hardware with Epic Games' engine, but that doesn't help the dozens and dozens of companies who have been attempting to make it work now.

    Koei recently issues an updated release schedule to the media, with Fatal Inertia conspicuously absent from the list. When asked, the publisher said there was no formal release date for the futuristic racer, but they expected the PS3 version to arrive sometime in Spring 2008. There's no word on if the PS3 version will include additional content, but given the delays have been technical issues, we wouldn't rule it out.

    You can get a taste of the game right now, however, by logging into Xbox Live and downloading the demo.
