31w ago - Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson shared a new Fuse trailer confirming that the demo lights up PSN on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: We've been working on Fuse, our first new console game IP since Resistance: Fall of Man, for several years now. The wait is almost over - Fuse launches May 28th on PlayStation 3. For an early taste of Fuse, grab the demo - it launches on PSN next Tuesday.
The demo will allow you to experience lethal teamwork with up to three friends online (or 2-player split-screen). Overstrike 9 has tracked the stolen Fuse source to a remote Raven base in Pakistan's snowy Karakoram Mountains.
The team must stop rogue group Raven from carrying out its horrific plan to form a new world order. The section of the demo comes from around the halfway point of the game, so we've powered up the four characters a bit to give you a sample of all their capabilities (and you can level them up further!)
Now, some of you may be asking, what is this game? We'd like to say Fuse is what you'd get if you took the dry humor and lethal teamwork from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and combined it with the alien weaponry from District 9.
It's a uniquely Insomniac universe, one where villains occupy strongholds in exotic locations...
32w ago - Today the folks at XCM have shared a video demo of their new MaxJoy RGB Thumbsticks Kit Set for the Nintendo Wii U Gamepad with details below.
To quote: The MaxJoy RGB thumbstick kit set is designed for the Wii U gamepad, it brings up to 999 colors on both Wii U thumbsticks for you to choose from, you are able to use 999 colors more rather then the black and white thumbsticks color now.
The MaxJoy RGB thumbstick kit set built in the rapid fire function on 8 main buttons (A, B, X, Y, L, R, ZL, ZR).
3 rapid fire speed levels on each main buttons (A, B, X, Y, L, R, ZL, ZR).
To quote (via Wololo): You might remember the psp2ps3 tools, and all the excitement a few weeks ago around a recent hack breakthrough that allows people to run psp isos (and, potentially, homebrews) on a hacked PS3, by “camouflaging” the game inside a PSP Mini.
Although people believed this trick was reserved to PS3s running a Custom Firmware, this might become an incorrect statement very soon…
I was contacted by scene member CapetLeVrai who apparently found a way to run those PSP ISOs on a non hacked PS3 running the latest official firmware 4.41.
The current technique will probably not blow your mind for now, as it requires you to own both a hacked and a non hacked PS3, but it could open huge opportunities in the near future if the right people decide to look into that. The basic idea is that after...
34w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa announced that today the Soul Sacrifice PSN demo arrives, and has confirmed that game saves transfer to full game with details below.
To quote: I hope you're ready for Soul Sacrifice - the demo will be available this afternoon on PSN!
Your first reaction to the demo might be, "Holy moly, this is a LOT of demo!" ...And you'd be right! The entire first chapter of the full game is included, all of which is playable with up to three other friends via online or ad-hoc multiplayer. Inafune-san made it a special point for the demo to be quite substantial, as you can read in his comments below:
"The number one reason for the Soul Sacrifice demo to have a lot of content was to show the users the full attraction of Soul Sacrifice. We knew that cutting out a small section of the game and saying, 'Isn't this part fun?' would not show the users the full potential of the game. We figured that it wouldn't make sense if the users could not have the 'I want to play more' feeling.
"So, we decided we want to provide, 'at the very least,' this amount of the game for the users. That is why, if you compare it to a standard demo, this became such a substantial piece. But we are confident that this will not become something negative where the users will feel...
