170w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has detailed FirstPlay Episode 23 today, which hits PSN this Wednesday for subscribers.
To quote: I'm happy to say that in episode 23, which will be on the Store this Wednesday, we're giving away an exclusive Landit Bandit dynamic theme.
We've also got a preview of new Bond blockbuster Blood Stone 007, and the first of our PlayStation Move reviews, as we pass our critical eye and wavy hands over Start The Party and Sports Champions.
On top of that we've got reviews of Clash Of The Titans on Blu-ray and old-school PSN arcader Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, plus a round-up of the latest PS3 downloadable movies, another batch of nasty funny Skate bails, and editor-in-chief Tim Clark's take on the end of Red Dead Redemption.
On top of all that we've got our screenshot galleries, which this week take in space zombies with Dead Space 2, desert zombies (kinda) with Rage, cross-franchise face-flattening with Street Fighter X Tekken, and damsel-escorting with Knights Contract.
All of which gives you over half an hour's worth of HD games coverage and info for just 99p, or as low as 75p if you take out a 90-day subscription for £8.99. See the Future of PS3. First.
OzMods states, to quote: "The final units have been delayed for everyone, not just us. So they should ship to us from China in a couple of days. The delay was due to them coding a new backup manager and locking their device to this manager, so that if anyone tries to clone, they can't use the software."

Upcoming PS JailBreak Development Features via Logic-Sunrise:
• Support for all firmware.

Upcoming PS JailBreak Development Features via ChipSpain:

171w ago - Today R.U.S.E. Senior Producer Mathieu Girard has shared a video, and announced that R.U.S.E. demo hits PSN today alongside some fresh PlayStation Move details as follows:
As a dev team, we're beyond excited to see the release of R.U.S.E. drawing near – it launches in the U.S. on September 7th, so we're just about a week away!
R.U.S.E. enables players to use manipulation and trickery against their enemies. In fact, deception is at the very heart of R.U.S.E., and you'll find that without it you cannot succeed.
With R.U.S.E., we aimed to create an RTS that goes beyond the established rules of the genre – we sincerely hope we have succeeded. You will soon be able to judge for yourself, since we are making a demo of R.U.S.E. available on PSN today!
In the demo, players will be able to check out an exclusive mission from the Italy campaign and play as U.S. General Joe Sheridan, leading the U.S. army in a fight against Germany and Italy. The final objective: cut off a German offensive from withdrawing by attacking them from behind.
Although the Axis forces are retreating in this mission, players will see that one should be very cautious when attacking a wounded beast... if...

To quote: The Medal of Honor beta is now closed and we want to thank you, PlayStation fans, for supporting us! The turnout was tremendous and we could not have asked for a better experience.
It is always great to do a true beta like this, because at the end of the day, this game is for you, the gamers. We received some amazing feedback and opted to extend the beta to make sure that we were able to hear as much of it as we could. Twitter, Facebook, and our forums have been blowing up with comments and we have been taking many notes.
We have learned a lot, and we wanted to take this opportunity to run down some of the major changes/fixes we have made to the game as a direct result of your feedback.
Improved Hit Detection
This was a very big issue and came up many times in the forums. We are glad to say that hit detection has been vastly improved. We really tightened up the mechanics and essentially, wherever the bullet hits on the body – that is where the hit registers. It is even possible to shoot and have the bullet go between someone's legs - it is...
