Rumor: New Metal Gear News in Next Week's Famitsu Magazine?

250°
256w ago - As we all know, Kojima Productions is counting down to a reveal of a new title; the countdown timer ends in roughly nine hours, but rumor has it another will soon take its place.

Has Japan's 7-11 spoiled the announcement for everyone? Count this under rumor for the time being, but one clever poster on NeoGAF has uncovered something quite interesting.

On 7Andy, the Japanese retail arm of 7-Eleven, a listing has been put up for next week's issue of Famitsu PSP + PS3, set to hit store shelves on May 30th.

Listed in the table of contents is what translates, literally, to "New Metal Gear". Could Kojima's next project be a Playstation game? He's already developed multiple PSP games, and the engine that powers Metal Gear Solid 4 was certainly not cheap to produce; it would make sense for Kojima's next game to appear on either system.

With the countdown timer ticking away and no hints appearing as of yet, it seems the best thing gamers can do is to wait and see how this all turns out; after all, E3 starts in less than two weeks, and this...
 

Rumor: Music Downloads Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network?

100°
256w ago - CNET has an interesting PSP/PSN rumor that might interest all you music lovers out there.

The word from CNET is that Sony has been talking to some big recording labels. This is of course about placing music on the PlayStation Network for download.

Apparently the pitched idea is focused on the PSP. This would make yet another great expansion to the PSN library. Add the rumored game rental service, the ever growing movies/TV shows library, and the talks about making PSN for other Sony products, this could get PSN to be a full fledged download hub from Sony.

Not a bad idea if you ask me. The focus on PSN will grow our reach, and will potentially cover the things we have been wanting for a long time. If this is Sony slowly trying to get digital distribution to us, they seem to be doing it the right way.

Don't get your hopes up though, this is all rumors. Now with that said, where is my cloud gaming?!
 

Rumor: PSN Subscription Fee Possible for PS3 Users?

550°
256w ago - Rumor has it that Sony may be considering a PSN subscription fee.

Not a subscription fee for access and online (ala Xbox Live) but a fee that gives you all you can eat access to PSN games be they for PSP or PS3.

To quote: This isn't a new idea (Sony Asia polled its customers in early 2008 about such a thing- pics below) but scuttlebutt is that they are asking AGAIN. Hmmm.

$10 dollars per month for 5 or 6 games out of the complete library? Games must 'check in' to see if you are a current subscriber or they just don't play. Maybe bump it to $20 and you get movie streaming to boot?

What do you think? Would you be willing to pay a fee to get access to all PSN games (esp considering if PSP Go! is real all future PSP games will be ON PSN).
 

Rumor: Capcom's Devil May Cry 5 to be Revealed at E3 '09 for Wii

200°
256w ago - Another rumor to spark up your interest for the already much-ado'd E3: Capcom is presenting Devil May Cry 5 at the said event.

Remember that full E3 line-up plus two mystery games released a couple of weeks ago? Well, rumor has it that the other mystery title is DMC5.

According to Curious Gamer, this iteration of the DMC franchise will not only head to the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, but will also be showing up on the Nintendo Wii.

Also, their source says that attendees of E3 may look forward to a 1:32-minute long teaser trailer - quite short for eager fans, but it ought to be informative nonetheless as the release date will be shown in it too.

Again, this stands as rumor for now, though. We expect to hear something official from Capcom now that the buzz is out.

The first revealed mystery title turned out to be Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
 

Rumor: Crime Lords Running Empires from Jail via PlayStations?

400°
257w ago - A row has reportedly erupted between the Prison Service and the agency fighting organised crime as it is believed that jailed crime lords are using PlayStations to give out orders in the real world.

Apparently, they are using the interactivity of the system to continue their underworld business activities.

To quote: "There is other technology used – people are using PlayStations to charge their mobile phones and are playing games interactively with others, so are able to communicate with them.

"The Prison Service is concerned that prisoners are using interactive games to talk to people outside the prison. Communication is the name of the game and criminals are looking to exploit new technologies.

Prisoners have rights and they have access to the Internet. Some new prison guards are also being used without knowing it, but they soon become streetwise."

The remarks provoked a furious response from the Prison Service which issued a statement in which it sought to demolish them.
