To quote: Available August 23rd, Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition takes one of the most revered fighting games in CAPCOM's history and brings it Online.

Quite frankly, the feature set we've included in this downloadable is jaw dropping. In addition to upscaled graphics, we have hundreds of trials, dynamic challenges, and a huge Vault full of all kinds of unlockables.

We have multiple training modes, integrated Tournament support, and 8 player lobbies (with spectator mode!). We have GGPO for near-lagless online play, a robust replay system, and the ability to upload matches straight to YouTube - from within the game! All of this, and much, much more.

We are also very excited to be the lead title in the brand new PSN PLAY program. Now with PSN PLAY, you're able to pre-order this game now. This is actually the first time a pre-order program has been offered for a downloadable PSN title, and we couldn't be happier than to help lead that charge.

The pre-order period for the game runs through August 18th, and people who pre-order during this period will receive a special gift: a custom Third Strike theme...

163w ago - Today Sony has reported that their DADC UK distribution warehouse in north London was engulfed in flames as violence in the capital continued for a third night.

Below is some video footage courtesy of CoolChrisVilla via YouTube, and although this isn't really PS3 news per se, it will definitely impact the gaming side of Sony's empire in the UK.

To quote: The music industry has become the latest victim of the riots ripping through London after a 20,000 sq metre distribution warehouse owned by Sony was burnt to the ground by rioters, destroying vast quantities of stock.

“We can confirm that the Sony DADC UK distribution centre in Enfield has been damaged by a fire which was reported around 11:30pm, 8th August. There have been no injuries to employees,” Sony said in a statement.

“The fire is under control but can be described as ‘smouldering’, consequently no one can enter the facility. Therefore at this time we are unable to confirm the extent of the damage or the cause until the fire is fully extinguished and a full investigation can be carried out by authorities.”

The Digital Audio Disc Corporation centre is the group’s sole distribution base in the UK. The impact however will be felt beyond Sony operations as the...

Gearbox's Randy Pitchford Talks Duke Nukem Forever PS3 Version

200°
172w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared an interview today with Randy Pitchford of Gearbox Software on the upcoming PS3 version of Duke Nukem Forever.

To quote: "It's like shaking hands with Bigfoot or riding the Loch Ness monster," said [Register or Login to view links] CEO Randy Pitchford when talking about finally releasing Duke Nukem Forever.

Look up the term 'vaporware' and Duke Nukem Forever will likely be used as an example, but it's real and it's coming to U.S. PS3s in less than two weeks. I caught up with Randy to ask why you should always bet on Duke.

Duke is an all-American hero with the Stars and Stripes featuring heavily in the game's art style, but characters like that haven't always been so popular internationally. Why is Duke an exception?

It's because Duke is a caricature of all that - it's silly! Duke Nukem takes place 12 years after Duke saved the world and he has leveraged that to live like a king. He's walked on the moon, climbed Everest... he's done it all.

The only thing bothering him is that they were supposed to make a video game about him saving the world and it has taken 12 years for them to finish it. I think it's that angle that makes it work internationally because we parody...
