Owners of Blu-ray players may become frozen out, PS3 is safe

300°
363w ago - The BBC reports on how owners of already purchased Blu-ray players may effectively find themselves locked out of future developments in the technology as their machines are not upgradeable.

Later on in the year, BD Live will be launched to support features to connect to the Internet and download content but as Internet functionality is not a strict requirement, no Blu-ray players currently on the market will be able to access this feature.

However, there is one small exception to the previous thought and that is the PS3 which should always be able to keep up with the Blu-ray technology updates due to the correct hardware and online access.

To quote: Machines released onto the market since November are called profile 1.1, but none of the standalone Blu-ray players can be upgraded to accommodate this profile.

Films will still play on the machines, but access to extra features is limited.

Later this year the Blu-ray camp will offer profile 2.0, called BD Live, which will allow the players which support the feature to connect to the internet to download related content, such as ringtones, trailers and photos.

But because internet functionality is not a mandatory requirement in current players, none on the market today will be able to access the feature.

TMHO Extra Twisted Edition on PS2: But Wait … There’s More!

50°
363w ago - When we were first starting Twisted Metal:Head On-Extra Twisted Edition, one of the major goals was to cram the game with so many exciting features that players would know right away that this was so much more than a simple port.

We wanted people to flip the game box over and be floored by how much cool stuff was inside. I love it when I buy a game or DVD and the thing almost FEELS heavier because it's just stuffed with features and bonus content. And that's the experience we've tried to deliver to folks who pick up our new game. Just check out what this thing has:

The Core Game Itself- Yep, the hit PSP game - Twisted Metal:Head On - is now on PS2. And now it's running at 60 frames/second, has improved textures and art, and even has a new level created specifically for this version (Transylvania Castle). Check it out:

The Lost Levels - Four brand new levels straight out of the dark, demented world of Twisted Metal: Black. These levels are designed with two player deathmatch in mind and I think they are some of the best Twisted levels we have ever made. My favorites are Suburban Terror and Stadium Slaughter. Here's a sneak peek:
A Note to Old School Gamers: can you tell where the inspiration for the 'car combat amid a series of low walls' area of the stadium level comes...
