Exclusive LittleBigPlanet Nariko Sackgirl from Play

50°
321w ago - With LittleBigPlanet becoming the new title to watch out for this fall it only makes sense to see electronic retails scrambling to secure all sorts of promotional giveaway with their copies of the game.

We have seen exclusive trailers from retailers such as Amazon, Wall-mart, and an exclusive Kratos Sackboy kit, but now we have found something equally as good.

Play.com is giving away an exclusive Nariko Sackgirl character with your order of LittleBigPlanet. Nariko who the hell is that? You might remember her from Heavenly Sword if you got the chance to play the title, but otherwise you can check out her sackgirl form below.

I have to say that the sword + red hair combo makes this sackgirl look pretty Bad As$.

Reeves: Play PS3 games while listening to streaming Vidzone movies

200°
321w ago - Worried that PS3's streaming Vidzone music videos were going to get in the way of your games? SCEE president David Reeves is here to quell the fear.

"People said, 'I wish I could listen to the music, and see it as well,'" Reeves told us, speaking at Games Convention in Leipzig last week.

"Because you can listen to it - you don't have to see the music video - and play your game at the same time. And that to them was very important."

The Vidzone service - which allows streaming of music videos to all PS3 users in Europe for free - is to launch early next year. A download service for similar content is scheduled to hit towards the end of 2009.
 

Play TV may cause Game Slowdown if you Record while you Play

50°
322w ago - Sony's PS3 digital recorder Play TV has landed in the laps of UK gaming journalists, and there are more downsides than revealed earlier.

If you wish to record while you play, there is a warning that gameplay may be effected including slow-downs. In addition to this, the build quality of the device isn't too impressive and there is no 1080i recording and plenty of DRM.

To quote: But there are a few downers. In order to allow recording while you're doing other things on your PS3 (say, playing Haze) you have to allow 'background recording', and there's a warning that this may cause slow-down and effect gameplay.

Then there are those bomb-shells that we revealed a few days ago, namely no 1080i recording at launch and the inclusion of pesky DRM. Although we haven't yet had the chance to test it with our PSP, this will mean you'll have to record shows via Remote Play to watch them on your handheld console rather than just sticking them on a Memory Stick and transferring them.

Play TV will be hitting shelves on 10th September for £70, but we'll bring you a full review before then to let you know whether or not to splash your cash.
 

No cross-platform play for The Agency!

50°
323w ago - Sony Online Entertainment's upcoming espionage MMO The Agency is not going to allow cross-platform play between the PC and the PS3, according to lead designer Hal Milton.

Speaking at SOE's annual Fan Faire in Las Vegas, Milton said, "There's no technological reason why you can't play cross-platform, but there's a philosophical reason why design doesn't want to do it. If we have to compromise one platform to support both, then we won't.

"A couple of members of our team gained a lot of experience working on Shadowrun, and no matter how well you fine-tune it, you end up with a player-base that's polarised," Milton said, referring to Microsoft's ill-fated cross-platform shooter for PC and Xbox 360.

"PC guys say, 'PS3 guys have aim assist and the controls nerfed for them'. And PS3 guys say, 'PC guys have a mouse and keyboard - it's all easier for them'. Even if it's not true.

"So what I would rather concentrate on is taking all that delicious persistent data and the community capabilities and try to find more interesting ways of putting that together," Milton added, and yes, he did describe persistent data as being "delicious".

When we quizzed him further on what kind of "interesting ways" he had in mind for combining the PC and PS3 player-bases, Milton said,...
