Warhawk Version 1.3 Trailer for PS3 & more!

50°
358w ago - Per Dylan Jobe (Game Director, Warhawk):

Most of our readers and Warhawk aficionados know that we recently held a contest for players in the US to submit their own insignias and aircraft paint schemes. The response was fantastic and we received a ton of entries. Thus why it has taken us so damn long to review them all, then pick the winners, contact them, and secure all the paper work required by our lawyers.

Welp... the winners are now selected and integrated with the upcoming Warhawk v1.3 update!

Before we reveal the new designs, why don't you take a gander at this brand new v1.3 trailer and get hyped up for the awesomeness that these new designs will be flying around in:




The team was really impressed by the quality of the submissions. Many of you spent a lot of time designing really great stuff and it's going to make a great addition to the game – aside form the fact that it's just plain sweet to get your stuff in a game!

And like I said before the team was really impressed by the paint schemes especially since they clearly took the most time to create. Our artists were so happy with the results that they took the time recently to generate hi-res renderings of all the winners.

The images turned out...
 

PS3 Firmware 2.16 (EUR) Update Available for Collectors!

50°
358w ago - Periodically Sony includes interim retail PS3 Firmware updates on PS3 game discs and console region revisions.

Examples include PS3 Firmware 1.02 (on launch title Game Discs including Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom), 1.11 (on early JAP PS3 consoles), and 1.55 (on early 60GB PS3 consoles). These never make it to actual PS3 Firmware updates via PSN, as they generally only contain a minor change/bugfix.

Today we have another one of these cases- PS3 Firmware 2.16 Update was extracted from a Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (EUR) Game Disc and uploaded to the Internet. No, it doesn't contain any 'supersecret holes' (lol) and it unpacks just like all the rest do with PS3 Update Unpacker v1 but for the collectors out there it's available below- enjoy!

Sony & Microsoft To Roll Out New IP Gaming Consoles

50°
358w ago - After several days of internal consideration Microsoft executives have said that they will not be producing a Blu ray Xbox 360. Instead the Company is working on a brand new gaming and entertainment solution that will replace the current Xbox 360.

The device will go head to head with a new home console from Sony that is both a gaming console and content management system. It is not expected to be launched untill late in 2009 or early 2010. Key to the new Microsoft offering according to a development engineer is IP content which Microsoft believes is the future for both gaming and home entertainment.

During the past 12 months and at the recent CES Expo in Las Vegas, both Sony and Microsoft have met with global telecommunication companies to discuss home gateways and the delivery of IP content into the home and their new gaming and entertainment consoles.

In Australia senior Telstra executives have said that the future is not Blu ray but Blu ray quality content delivered over an IP network or via content kiosks. Telstra have also said that they want to deliver both games and entertainment content to both the new Sony and Microsoft devices with consumers given the option of either downloading the content to the device or picking up the content from storage kiosks located at Telstra mobile stores...

Download: PSP Firmware 3.93 (US) / PSP Firmware 3.93 (EU)

Not mentioned in the official changelog, it appears there are 20 new Internet radio players that have been added to the PSP's Internet Radio feature.
