139w ago - Zipper Interactive Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has unveiled SOCOM Pro today, which includes special game types and new weapons.
To quote: We've been keeping a secret here at Zipper Interactive - a hush-hush special bonus that players who purchase new copies of SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs are entitled to the moment they first play the game.
We call it "SOCOM Pro," and you'll first see mention of it when you open a brand new copy of SOCOM 4 on the back of the instruction manual. On that SOCOM Pro call-out, you'll find a redemption code for use on the PlayStation Network that gets you... well, it gets you a whole bunch of super-cool things, really.
SOCOM Pro shows its benefits immediately on launch day, April 19, as any player who purchases a new copy of SOCOM 4 receives exclusive access to all "Pro" Custom Game queues. Not only will these queues be ranked, but they'll also be updated regularly over the entire lifespan of SOCOM 4 - so it'll be the gift that keeps on giving for quite some time.
Moreover, the first set of "Pro" Custom Game types will be the same fantastic rule sets that our diligent fans tested during our SOCOM 4 beta period. If you missed them in the beta, here's what they are now:

As the fourth game in the series, Insect Armageddon stays true to its predecessors. The Ravagers, an insectoid race from the stars, has come to Earth to dominate it...

194w ago - Today United Front Games Designer Nick Letizia has shared a new ModNation Racers PS3 video dubbed 'Bringing The BOOM with Weapons' on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: I'm here to chat about a key part of the title – weapons. Specifically, it's what we like to call the "Boom Box" weapon system.
Take a peek at our new trailer for a taste and read more below on how ModNation Racers will bring the BOOM on May 25.
Designing the Boom Box
When making ModNation Racers, we realized the need to advance the kart racing genre to the next level with a more physical driving model, but we also wanted to change how players use weapons.
Nothing feels better than taking an opponent down, but that feeling of euphoria is soon forgotten when you are on the receiving end of an attack.
Weapons can change the course of a race – it's one of the defining characteristics in this genre, but we wanted to reduce the frustration of unskilled randomness. We wanted to give players more options.
Strategy - Using the Ladder
In ModNation Racers you can choose to upgrade your weapons to make them more powerful, but that doesn't always come...

To quote: Napalm & Cordite, the new downloadable content pack for Killzone 2, contains two exciting new multiplayer maps: Suljeva Cliffside, which takes place on the rocky outskirts of the Suljeva mining village; and Arctower Landing, which revisits the Arctower defense posts of Blood Meridian.
On top of that, the DLC pack allows you to wield a pair of weapons which were previously accessible only through the single player campaign!
Napalm: The VC1 Flamethrower Found in the Suljeva Cliffside map, the VC1 Flamethrower projects an ignited stream of flammable liquid at high pressure. Consisting of low-octane gasoline and an unidentified component indigenous to Helghan, this form of Napalm is extremely effective for clearing out enemy trenches and bunkers.
Cordite: The Boltgun 4400 Also known as "The Handyman", the semi-automatic Boltgun 4400 can be picked up in the Arctower Landing map. It uses Cordite to propel metal bolts at an extremely high velocity, often pinning its targets to walls and other objects. In addition, each round contains a time-delayed explosive...
