116w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared some new video footage today from Fantastic Fest 2011 showcasing Closure's new challenges and visuals for its PSN launch below.
To quote: "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" The world of Closure, an upcoming PSN exclusive, pushes this philosophical question to the limit. If you don't see that tree, not only doesn't it make a sound - it doesn't even exist.
As Austin's Fantastic Fest kicked off last night, PlayStation hosted an indie arcade filled with games coming exclusively to PSN. You might be familiar with most of the titles on display, as we've talked quite a bit on the Blog about Journey, Retro/Grade, and Okabu. As the developers were setting up their stations, I was immediately drawn to a title that we only just introduced you to: Closure.
Closure is being developed by just two full-timers: Lead Designer and Programmer Tyler Glaiel and Artist John Schubbe. Glaiel guided me through the early parts of the game, and answered a few questions for PlayStation.Blog readers.
PlayStation.Blog: After announcing the game here on the PlayStation Blog, you demoed the game at PAX....

To quote: We hope you've been enjoying the Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Limited Beta. We gave out tons of codes last week, and if for some reason you haven't gotten a code to download it yet, check out the special pre-order deal we have going on with Amazon.

116w ago - Following up on their previous video, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer DemonHades has shared a demo of JFW DH PS3 Custom Firmware installing and running various PS3 homebrew CFW applications including an NES emulator, Showtime Media Player and the multiMAN backup game manager.
To quote, roughly translated: Hi hell, here I leave a video that shows the installation of 3.56 DH JFW MA on a 3.55, this version is created only for users locked into a 3.56 (base) that can not drop below the 3.56 and therefore can not enjoy the scene.
The reason why you can not downgrade the 3.56, is that apart from the 3.56 it incorporates a second updater which is the preparatory 3.60. Then would be the new way (updater2) mode unusable old (3.55) is why not recognize any update below.
It's supposed to be given to how to do down at 3.56 after the DH JFW 3.56 MA, but when tested it is only possible with a flash out of 3.56.
The video shows how to use various applications such as:

116w ago - SCEE's Dan Vader has posted up a video trailer announcing that Might And Magic: Clash of Heroes PS3 DLC launches on PSN today.
To quote: The new 'I Am the Boss' update for Might and Magic Clash of Heroes gives players the chance to square off against all 4 evil bosses from the single player campaigns in Quick Battle or Online Multiplayer modes.
This is your chance to get another taste of vengeance as you take to the battlefield against Azexes, Count Carlyle, Lordess Ludmilla, and overlord Azh Rafir. But these villains aren't going to lie down and let your attacks march all over them.
Each boss has been balanced for Multiplayer action and equipped with their own brand new and uniquely devastating Hero Spells. Watch out for Azexes' Demon Portal spell, which summons attacks from the depths of Sheogh; your skin will crawl when Lordess Ludmilla calls upon her Spider Swarm to overwhelm you; try to hold onto your lunch when Count Carlyle belches up his Bile Blast straight at you; and you better build some strong walls to defend against Azh Rafir's deadly Palm Blast spell.
It may not be technically legal to unleash hellhounds on your boss at the office, or fire off a Pixie Blast at that manager whose...
