FLOCK! for PS3 Hits PlayStation Network on April 9, 2009

263w ago - Today Capcom's John Diamonon announced that FLOCK! for PS3 will be hitting Sony's PlayStation Network on April 9, 2009.

To quote: The real reason I'm here is to let you know that next Thursday, FLOCK! finally arrives on PSN. Soon you'll be able to manipulate cute, cuddly animals with the help of your trusty UFO. You don't even have to be in a farm to flock sheep, Capcom is giving you the ability to do this in the privacy of your own home. You can even call a friend over and flock.

If you've never herd of FLOCK! before, here's a video with the beautiful Veronica Belmont and one the folks at Capcom going over some of the cool features in the game (I'm loving the outfit Veronica!).





Did I mention trophy and in-game XMB music support? Another cool feature is the level editor where you can create your own plushy environments and share them online.

There's also a rating system where you can praise the brilliant work of others, or pan some of the more awkward levels that are made available (Giving fans creative freedom is not always a good thing).

So, if you've been keeping up with my blogs, I've been hinting for months about a cool surprise for PSN gamers this year. Well, stay tuned. I'm ready to talk...

263w ago - Kotaku has reported today that Nintendo's Wii Fit is wishing users a Happy April Fools Day 2009 today as follows:

This is pretty neat. Booting up your copy of Wii Fit today will earn you a couple of pretty obvious April Fool's jokes.

Reader Andrew shipped us these two pictures, one showing the Wii Fit claiming that it's broken and another hinting that the Wii Fit may lie about your Body Test results.

Can you imagine if all electronics took today seriously? We'd be in a world of hurt.
 

PlayStation Home Celebrates April Fool's Day 2009

263w ago - If you log into PlayStation Home and enter the Central Plaza, you'll be greeted with the cult hit that everyone loves to hate along with the promise of some "interesting" costumes.

Home Community Managers Locust_Star and CydoniaX had commented last week about bringing "The Chain Swing" back to PlayStation Home for April Fool's day.

Well, they delivered, making every single song in the Listen@Home play list "The Chain Swing".

Along with that comes posters advertising hamster costumes for Home users. So far, we've yet to see anything in the Threadz store as this may only be for April Fool's day and may have no chance of seeing the light of day.





In the meantime, we'll keep our eyes peeled if these suits become available and provide you with some pics of the event as well as the song that is currently driving Home users absolutely crazy.

Rumor: PS3 Firmware 2.70 to be Released on April 2, 2009?

263w ago - Update: Paddy: Recently we had the good fortune of being added to Sony's mailing list for all first party titles. With all the speculative posts regarding the upcoming Firmware I just decided to chance my arm and send an email to my contact at Sony Ireland on Friday. That was the reply I got.

However she did inform me that the official announcement would be Monday, but as you can see there wasn't one. I do believe its coming today. It is a genuine post and not an April Fools joke.

According to "Paddy", Administrator of Gamexbox.ie, the new PS3 Firmware 2.70 is going to be released on the 2nd of April 2009.

To quote: With mounting speculation as to exactly when PS3 firmware version 2.70 will be released we can now reveal to you that our sources at Sony Ireland have given us a confirmation date.

April 2nd Will be the date that every PS3 gamer will now be looking forward to. Stay tuned for more as the official Announcement and images is made on Monday 30th March.
