Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box Announced, Options Added

50°
320w ago - This February, Electronic Arts will release Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, an edition of Criterion's open-world racer that packs all of the game's downloadable content along with a new offline multiplayer mode and other tweaks.

Dubbed Burnout Paradise Party, the offline multiplayer mode enables up to eight players to compete in challenges, one at a time, by passing the controller. For those that already own Burnout Paradise, the offline multiplayer mode will be sold as DLC.

The Ultimate Box will also add a number of oft-requested features, such as a restart option added for racing, easier control of the early vehicles, and a PS3-only social networking tool referred to as Burnout Paradise Network.

EA did not specify if those changes will be available to those that already own Burnout Paradise, which arrived on PS3 and Xbox 360 this past January. The Ultimate Box release will mark the game's promised debut on PC.

Burn Zombie Burn Announced for PlayStation Network in Q1 2009

50°
321w ago - Pinnacle Software and developer Doublesix are excited to announce the upcoming release of what will surely prove to be one of the most addictive and charismatic arcade shooters of 2009 - Burn Zombie Burn, available on PlayStationNetwork early Q1.

Press Release: GUILDFORD, ENGLAND, October 24th 2008 - You play Bruce - an average every-day Joe who was looking forward to some 'quality time' with his girlfriend Daisy. In true B-movie style their Saturday night is ruined by an invasion of zombies.

Set across six classic American horror movie inspired levels, Burn Zombie Burn is a third-person shoot-em-up in the classic coin-op tradition featuring next-gen game play mechanics, and possessing that 'one-more-go' addictiveness which define all of the great shooters.

The aim of the game couldn't be simpler; shoot, burn and blow up as many brain munching zombies as possible using a variety of classic zombie killing weapons before they overwhelm you. Use fire to build up your multiplier and then destroy zombies en masse with explosives to increase that oh-so-important leaderboard high score. But beware! A burning zombie is a faster zombie - burn too many and they will burn you!

Burn Zombie Burn is frantic, arcade gaming at its best, delivering humour and bloody zombie violence...
 

PlayStation 3 Trophy Cards Real Time Sync Announced

50°
321w ago - PlayFire, known for their custom gamer cards, has recently announced a major update to their PS3 trophy card system. They have expanded their selection to better suite the latest three new trophy patches that hit PlayStation 3 for the new games coming out with trophy support.

The update doesn't stop there! In addition to the new size and themes, PlayFire has introduced 'automated level calculation' based off the number & type of trophies you have fully integrated and functioning with a new level progress indicator so you no longer need to constantly adjust or guess your level.

Now, this all sounds cool, and much love to PlayFire for giving the PS3 users a custom gamer card solution, but seriously, when will Sony gives us real time syncing with a flash PSN gamer card? Adding every single trophy and game will get old fast.

All PS3 owners want, is a gamer card that will update in real time just like the XBox 360's. What is Sony waiting for? Could they be waiting to integrate the trophy reward system?

Or are they just not really worried about a very important thing that pimps out the PS3 in forums, Web sites, and social sites? For now, PlayFire will continue to be a good solution.
