215w ago - Update: VG247.com has now confirmed that a Euro DSiLL will arrive in Q1 2010 at higher price of DSi, to quote:
"Nintendo today confirms that a new Nintendo DSi XL console is launching in Europe in the first quarter of 2010. The retail price of the Nintendo DSi XL is expected to be higher than that of the Nintendo DSi. Further details will be released soon."
According to a report from Nikkei news service (via NeoGAF translation by neo2046 of a blog post), Nintendo will release a new DSi LL in Japan this year (2009) with a screen that is approximately 4 inches.
For those curious, the screen on the current DSi is 3.25 inches.
Overall it's not a major difference in appearance, but some gamers may simply find the larger screen easier to interact with.
Besides this slight cosmetic change, everything else about the DSi will remain the same. It will have no additional processing power or a higher quality camera.
Best of all the price will remain at the standard price of 18900 yen (around $200). No one is...

238w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Asad Qizilbash shared the following announcement today via PlayStation Blog:
With only 8 days left until inFAMOUS hits the stores, I wanted to share with you some quick updates.
Sucker Punch have created a 4-part comic that chronicles the days following that fateful blast that changed Cole's life forever. Part 1 of 4 is already out, check IGN HERE for the final parts when they're released.

252w ago - Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has shared some highlights of a recent media event at the Naughty Dog studios today as follows:
The very full day for our guests started off with getting them up to speed on UNCHARTED 2, covering background info on story, gameplay and technology such as:
• The historical mystery surrounding Marco Polo and his lost fleet, which serves as the foundation for our story.
• What's happened to Drake, since it's pretty obvious he's a bit scruffier, down on his luck and he's definitely running with way shadier people than before.
• Introducing everyone to Chloe Frazer, a sexy and impulsive Australian who is just this side of unpredictable and dangerous, not to mention Drake's new partner and romantic interest - can you blame him?
• Adding in what we're calling "action-stealth" to give you the choice to go in guns blazing or take out a few adversaries unnoticed before engaging the rest of them.
• Blending together our climbing and shooting into what we call "traversal gunplay" so you can now be in gun combat in the middle of climbing, swinging on a rope, hanging from a ledge or sign...you can shoot pretty much from anywhere, anytime you want.
• All the cool things the Naughty...
