241w ago - Looks like PAIN, PSN's #1 game of 2008, is getting yet another expansion.

The expansions will also introduce a few new modes, such as the "Fun With Explosives" inspired "PAIN Science" mode.

255w ago - PlayStation Network Operations Director Eric Lempel shared the following details on PS3 Firmware 2.60 today:
Hi, everyone, we have a system software updates for PS3 coming soon, and I wanted to provide you with a sneak peak at the details.
The PS3 firmware update (v2.60) is designed primarily to enhance the system's media capabilities. The key feature is a new Photo Gallery application, which delivers a suite of tools for sorting through and displaying your digital photo collection.
Digital pictures can be organized in groups according to various criteria, including the camera used to take the photos, the event date and time, colors in the photos, as well as the number, ages, or facial expressions of the people pictured.
Here's a video walk-through of firmware 2.60 that shows off some of what the Photo Gallery can do.
You can also create slideshows set to music and build photo playlists with an easy-to-use interface. The Photo Gallery application will need to be installed separately from the XMB after you update your PS3's firmware.
To install the Photo Gallery application, go to the Photo section on the XMB, select Photo Gallery and press the X button.
270w ago - Looks like more trophies are headed Burnout's way in the Eastwood Update, which if you don't know also adds a whole new island to the game! Exciting stuff.
Also if you look closely you'll notice they say "Packs".. does that mean there will be more updates after Eastwood? How much more can Criterion add to this game?!
