190w ago - Today Capcom PR Manager Brian Keltner has revealed that the Lost Planet 2 multiplayer PS3 demo is now available on PSN, and he also shared a trailer video for the PlayStation 3 title below.
To quote: Beginning with today's PlayStation Store Update, the Lost Planet 2 Multiplayer Demo will be available on PSN. Get together with up to 16 players, grab some weapons, jump in a vital suit and compete in Elimination, Team Elimination, or Data post Grab modes.
This is just a sample of the various modes and ten maps you'll be able to play when the full game ships on May 11.
But wait, there is more! Downloading the demo does more than just let you get a first taste at Lost Planet 2. Capcom has started an exciting charity campaign called, "Kill Big for Charity".
We are partnering with Music for Relief, a non-profit organization dedicated to disaster relief and disaster risk mitigation, to contribute $20,000 to charity if one million demos are downloaded across both PSN and XBL before May 5, 2010. An additional $5,000 will be added to the pot if an extra 500,000 demo downloads can be achieved.
To celebrate the launch of Lost Planet 2, we will be throwing a tournament on May 6 in Los Angeles. Select members of our community,...
190w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has announced today that the ModNation PSP demo is coming to April's Qore edition.
To quote: We hope you enjoyed the April episode of Qore, featuring in-depth coverage of God of War III, Split/Second and 3D Dot Game Heroes.
If you are a Qore annual subscriber or purchaser of the April episode, we want to let you know about a late addition to Episode 23's Download Center: ModNation Racers PSP Demo.
Qore subscribers were invited to the PS3 game Beta last year, and starting on April 22, you'll also get a chance to play the upcoming PSP demo version.
Visit the Download Center in the April episode of Qore after this week's PlayStation Store Update for early access to the ModNation Racers PSP demo, which lets you test drive two full tracks from the game and give the track creator a spin.
And, look for more exclusive downloads in next month's May episode of Qore, featuring Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands, UFC Undisputed 2010 with Jens Pulver, and an insider's look at upcoming additions to PlayStation Home.
Look for Episode 24 to hit the PlayStation Store on May 11.
190w ago - Below is a video from Sony's recent event in Seattle showcasing the PS3 Move system with SOCOM 4 for PlayStation 3.
Zipper Interactive's upcoming title SOCOM 4 is just one video game boasting the new PS3 Move motion-control system that is currently estimated to cost around $100.
To quote: "Zipper and "SOCOM" helped Sony leap ahead in the past.
When the PlayStation 2 introduced a network adapter enabling online play in 2002, the first "SOCOM" game was released to showcase this capability. The "SOCOM" franchise went on to be one of the PS2's biggest hits, selling more than 10 million copies, and Sony bought Zipper in 2006.
"SOCOM 4" is still early in development, with no price or release date set yet, but Sony has been showing it to fans and reporters in events across the country, including one in Seattle earlier this month."
192w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today showcasing the new Lost Planet 2 PS3 demo, to quote:
This week we dropped by Capcom HQ to test out multiplayer on the PS3 version of Lost Planet 2, as well as get some of your questions answered. There's a video featuring exclusive footage and your answers below.
We also found out that Capcom is doing something pretty cool: if 1.5 million of you gamers download the upcoming multiplayer demo (available April 22nd), they'll donate $25K to charity. Easy enough, right?
So why are we telling you this today, when the demo won't be live for 3 weeks? Because Capcom is giving some gamers a headstart on that download (which means you may be able to start playing it now).
Head over to lostplanetcommunity.com, where you can enter to win early access to the demo. Strike out there? Stay tuned to our Twitter account; we'll be giving out some more download codes later today.
194w ago - Today Yahoo detailed a recently approved Apple iPhone application named Line2 by Toktumi, Inc. that allows users to sidestep AT&T among other handy things for just a dollar.
Below is a demo video of Line2 in action, and to quote from the article on the app's feature highlights:
"Line2 gives your iPhone a second phone number - a second phone line, complete with its own contacts list, voice mail, and so on.
Your second line can be an 800 number, if you wish, or you can transfer an existing number.
Line2 also turns the iPhone into a dual-mode phone. That is, it can make and receive calls either using either the AT&T airwaves as usual, or - now this is the best part - over the Internet. Any time you're in a wireless hot spot, Line2 places its calls over Wi-Fi instead of AT&T's network.
Line2 also runs on the iPod Touch. When you're in a Wi-Fi hot spot, your Touch is now a full-blown cellphone, and you don't owe AT&T a penny.
Turns out Wi-Fi calls don't use up any AT&T minutes. You can talk all day long, without ever worrying about going over your monthly allotment of minutes. Wi-Fi calls are free forever.
Well, not quite free; Line2 service costs $15 a month (after...
