Video: Fat Princess - New Pork PS3 DLC Level Revealed

50°
240w ago - A few days ago we first heard about the Fat Princess new PS3 DLC dubbed New Pork, and today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video of it below.

To quote: Last week at PAX, I ran into Chris Millar and Craig Leigh from Titan, who demoed the addition to this top-selling PSN game on camera.

Unfortunately, the folks at Penny Arcade are creatures of the night, and it was super dark (you'll see that in a minute) in the Washington State Convention & Trade Center.

Fortunately, Titan scraped together some hi-def footage of the new level, which we edited on top of the walkthrough this morning. Technology, she is wonderful.

So take a look at New Pork in action!




 

Titan Studios Announce First PS3 DLC 'New Pork' for Fat Princess

241w ago - As part of new PS3 DLC announced at PAX 2009, Titan Studios have revealed that a map entitled "New Pork" will be heading to Fat Princess.

To quote from their blog (linked above): "Due to the tremendous success of Fat Princess on PSN, we are pleased to announce a host of new content for you, our loyal fans. Today at PAX we spilled the beans on New Pork, an awesome new city-themed level.

New Pork offers an exciting array of strategies to slice and dice your way to victory. Use multiple sewer shortcuts to sneak up behind your enemies, blow up barricades to open up new routes of assault and defend your princess from the rooftops.

New Pork is just the beginning of additional content for Fat Princess. For details on New Pork and news of the coming update, as well as PAX video interviews with the Titan Devs, stay tuned to the Titan Blog."
 

PS3 Slim Uses Half the Power of 'Fat' PlayStation 3 Console

400°
242w ago - The PS3 Slim was reported as running on 34% less power than the previous 'fat' PlayStation 3 model, however, that figure is inaccurate.

CNET's Crave (linked above) decided not to take Sony's press releases at their word, and instead plugged a Slim into machines to test its actual power output. And their findings are a little surprising!

The Slim uses a lot less power than Sony have given it credit for. In standby mode, it's around 70% more efficient, while playing games and Blu-Rays its just over 50% more efficient.

In relative terms, it appears the PS3 Slim is now a lot more efficient than it's fatter, older, more wasteful brother. Those interested can check out the Power Consumption chart below!
