Rumor: Leaked Document Reveals PS3 Slim and PS3 Price Drop

400°
263w ago - Today French site PS3Gen (linked above) have posted what reportedly is a leaked document which appears to confirm both a PS3 Slim model and PS3 price drop this September.

The document is available below and to quote, roughly translated:

"Now Slim or PS3 price drop? Both, Sir!

Several contacts "unofficial" we have confirmed that the two first arrived in September. Slim version is already present in the database under the name "PlayStation 3 SLIM and is posted to 299 €.

No real news for the current version but it seems impossible that his price is not revised downwards otherwise, it would sell more. The Slim is even informally already pre-booked in some shops!

It should be noted that other "offers" PS3 is scheduled for the end of the year after the planning, but it would be, according to our sources, bundles and other offers promotions that are specifically made by this retailer.

This announces Gamescom much spice, and a very nice beginning!"
 

New Tales of Graces Scan Reveals Two New PS3 Characters

50°
267w ago - A new Tales of Graces scan is available, which appears to reveal two new playable characters, as well as some new information about the PlayStation 3 port of Tales of Vesperia.

This game is the first mothership (Namco Bandai's term for non-spin-off games in the Tales of series) game for the Wii.

The previous Tales of game for the Wii, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, was classified as a spin-off sequel.

To quote: The black-haired male's name is Hubert Oswell (voiced by Takahiro Mizushima) and is Asbel's younger brother (by one year), and the red-haired female's name is Shelia Barnes/Burns (voiced by Shiho Kawaragi).

It appears the male favors close-hand combat, while the female uses spells to attack. The scan also shows a new swimsuit costume for Flynn, entitled Short-Sleeved Prince, which has Mieu from Tales of the Abyss on the logo.
 

PSW Magazine July '09 Issue Reveals Legitimate PS Cloud Details

50°
269w ago - Despite Sony stating that the recent PS Cloud rumor was pure conjecture, today Glyn_Dwr has shared a little substantial evidence that PS Cloud does exist.

Below is a scan from PSW Magazine's July '09 issue, to quote:

A small paragraph of information on PS 'Cloud' in July 09 issue of PSW page 73! Sorry about the lousy quality, the article reads:

You've always been able to create and share levels in PSN puzzler Echochrome, but an update will let you do this via 'Cloud'.

This system removes the need for Sony to check levels before being uploaded - an early problem for LittleBigPlanet. The new update will also allow for Playstation Eye support.

You will be able to film yourself solving the game's complex puzzles and then upload your performance to YouTube. Trash Panic also enables you to upload footage.

Does this mean we can expect to see user-created content via Playstation Cloud in future games?
 

Square Enix Reveals New Final Fantasy XIII Details

400°
271w ago - Square Enix has shed some more light on its highly anticipated PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 RPG Final Fantasy XIII.

Compared to the demo, the final product will have a more realistic feel to it and the transition from CG sequences to real-time scenes will be smoother. AI will be improved and party members will be capable of delivering a varied portfolio of combination attacks.

To quote: The development team isn't ready to explain exactly what kind of relationship exists between Lighting and Snow, yet Snow apparently refers to the heroine as "older sister." Lightning's crystal is shaped like a rose, whereas Snow's looks like a heart.

Following Ifrit, Shiva, Carbuncle and Bahamut, Odin is the fifth summon officially confirmed to appear in the game (as seen at Microsoft's E3 press conference). Like Shiva, Odin will be able to transform into a vehicle during battle.

Talking about Shiva, the two sisters which make up this icy summon can be transformed into a bike. Players can ride this bike by using the analog stick to freely move around on the battlefield and attack their opponents by pressing a button.

In this mode, the game will feel similar to an action game. Apparently,...
