107w ago - Sony Director of Marketing Brandon Stander has announced today that MLB TV is ready for opening day 2012 on PlayStation Network!

To quote: Seems like we were just watching David Freese and the St. Louis Cardinals make a dramatic comeback to beat the Texas Rangers in 7 games to win the 2011 World Series.

And now, here we are, standing in the on-deck circle of the 2012 season waiting to see who will step up and lead their teams into the playoffs and become this year's World Series hero.

And, just in time for the opening series games between the Athletics and Mariners in Tokyo, all the Major League Baseball action can once again be watched with the new 2012 MLB.TV application for the PS3, now available on PSN.

Just like last season, the MLB.TV app gives you access to high-quality HD, live and archived games, home and away broadcasts, as well as an array of interactive features designed to take advantage of the PS3 system's technical prowess. If you're a MLB.TV Premium subscriber, you can access all available Spring Training games.

You can view a walk through of the application highlights here and read more about what you'll see with this year's MLB.TV service below:

107w ago - Today EA Games Battlefield 3 Community Manager Ian Tornay has announced via Sony's blog that dedicated server rentals are coming to PlayStation 3 entertainment system users.

To quote: PlayStation 3 Battlefield 3 players will have a chance to make Battlefield history.

Starting today, we're going to offer PlayStation 3 players the opportunity to rent their own dedicated server. Your rules, your friends, your Battlefield.

Want to enable friendly fire? Done. Want to only allow spawning on your squad leader? Make it happen. Like health regeneration, but not 3D spotting? You get the idea.

Your server, your rules. And if you want to keep things exclusive put a "bouncer" out front; give your friends VIP status so they can cut to the front of the queue when joining, or keep unwanted players out by banning them.

Whether you're using it as your favorite place to play ranked matches with your friends or as a staging ground to practice new tactics and strategies, you can't go wrong. You'll be able to rent servers for periods of one day (€1.49), seven days (€6.99), 30 days (€24.99), or 90 days (€59.99).
