75w ago - Following up on their previous announcement, today Sony PlayStation Community Manager MusterBuster has confirmed that the BBC Sports application is now available on PS3.
To quote: Those of you with keen eyes and a twitter account (pointed straight at @PSAccess for UK PlayStation goodness) will know that the BBC Sports App is now available as a beta trial in the UK!
Downloading the app is stupendously easy. Just follow these steps:
• Start your PlayStation 3 system and sign in to PlayStation Network
• On the XMB menu, navigate to the TV/Video Services category
Select "My Channels" with the X button
• Locate the BBC Sport Beta icon (Pro tip. It's big, yellow and says "BBC Sport" on it)
• Download the app as prompted. It's 32MB in size. Once installed, it'll start automatically
• When you want to access the BBC Sport app in future, just select it from the TV/Video Services menu - no need to go into "My Channels"
Currently the app will give you video coverage across 3 events: Euro 2012, Formula 1 and Wimbledon.
77w ago - Sony Content Producer Simon Bramble has interviewed EA Sports' David Rutter today on FIFA 13 for PS3.
Below is the interview, to quote: With Euro 2012 getting underway and the latest version of the beautiful game on PlayStation 3 mesmerising crowds at E3 2012, it was the perfect time to catch up with EA SPORTS FIFA 13 producer David Rutter.
Here, he explains how this year's online offering is second to none.
Simon: How has FIFA Street impacted on FIFA 13?
David Rutter: The Precision Dribbling 2.0 - that's the glamorous name for it - did owe something to that game, yes. We were looking at improved dribbling overall as a big holistic feature, we wanted the ability to move in 360 degrees, we wanted fidelity of distance and we also wanted face angle.
That was a big thing for us, the ability to have the player's face pointing in the right direction no matter which way they're going.
After that was achieved it became obvious that another cool part of it would be the ability to take defenders on using skill moves.
We've had some skill moves in FIFA before, but the key lesson we learned from the FIFA Street guys was that level of immediate control on the ball. It was really fun, something we thought would fit in nicely...
