Video: Play Crisis with SIXAXIS on PS3

300°
316w ago - Streaming software by StreamMyGame, that enables the latest PC games to be played on the PlayStation 3, now enables you to play PC games with your SIXAXIS controller.

The new StreamMyGame PlayStation 3 player includes a USB and Bluetooth pairing tool that enables the SIXAXIS to be used via cable or wirelessly.

"Both our new StreamMyGame PS3 player and the Bluetooth tool install automatically, just download and double click" said Richard Faria, StreamMyGames CEO. "In addition to streaming games from your local PC, the new player enables games to be streamed from remote PCs or PC servers housed in ISP exchanges".





Also included is a new configuration tool enabling gamers to map each SIXAXIS button and thumb controller to a different keyboard key and mouse axis so gamers can create map settings that suit their preferred gameplay.

"The new player works with Yellow Dog Linux Version 6 which is now really easy to install and recommended by Sony," said Richard. "We have included full details on our website of where to download YDL6, how to record it to DVD and how to install it".

Review: GioTeck RealTriggers for PS3 improve play

250°
322w ago - The 'Playstation Journal' has conducted a review on the GioTeck RealTriggers for the PS3. They clip onto the convex triggers of the PS3 controller and add a concave curve which help your fingers stay securely on the trigger buttons.

Overall they are impressed and score them a 9/10.

To quote: GioTeck RealTriggers for PS3 are very good peripherals if you're up for making a change to the PS3 controller. Me? I Ordered them for fun - and I like them.

They slide/clip on to the convex triggers and add a concave curve, helping your fingers stay securely on the trigger buttons [people were complaining that their fingers would slip off]. Other than adding security for your fingers, that's about it. If you want to revert back to the old triggers' feel, removing the clip on triggers couldn't be easier.

If I was made to point out one downside to them, I would say that they poke out a bit, making it look a bit weird. That, and they could have covered up the underneath, it looks ugly.

One thing which can be taken into gaming consideration is that when the controller is placed on the floor, the two triggers aren't going to be pressed against the floor, causing the buttons to activate [I've had this problem when watching videos on the PS3's browser and the view is zoomed on something...[/I]
 

Microsoft to make desperate play at E3 Press Conference

100°
324w ago - Following talk that Microsoft is to announce two new major games in its E3 press conference, we have learned from trusted sources that the announcements are to be "interesting, partly spectacular, and a bit desperate."

The insider added: "Let's put it this way: they're worried the current line-up can't carry Q4 for the entire Xbox brand in the core market. You'll laugh when you see what they're planning."

Microsoft confirmed its E3 roster last night, listing Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Fable 2, Gears of War 2, Halo Wars, Too Human and Viva PiƱata: Trouble in Paradise as its first-party offering for the Holiday season.

The firm's E3 conference will take place on July 14 at 10.30am PST.
 

GameStop prices GH: WT bundle at $190, play Rock Band instead

100°
327w ago - The general consensus seems to be that Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock was a gross misstep for the series. It appeared that Neversoft made up the note charts rather arbitrarily, with many songs being made difficult for difficulty's sake.

And Rock Band, which came out just over a month after GH III, has taken the videogame world by storm (well, in North America – it came out today in Europe) with its rocking party atmosphere and smart packaging of DLC.

However, as we've now seen, Activision is attempting to cash in on the "full band of plastic instruments" phenomenon with Guitar Hero World Tour. Looking to one-up Harmonix, the game will feature a drum kit with three pads and two cymbals, and (for now) an untethered bass pedal. Oh, and it appears as if the guitars will look more realistic (and feature Rock Band-esque solo buttons).

But the big question on most people's minds so far is this: how much will the full bundle cost? I, for one, am not too keen on the idea of spending another $170+ on a second set of fake instruments, especially when it comes with the attached strings of Activision's DLC pricing/packaging. Well, now we've got an idea – and my friends, it's not looking pretty.

If you head on over to GameStop.com and search for "Guitar Hero World Tour",...
 

Nexon's Free-to-Play Online Shooter Combat Arms Explored

50°
327w ago - The realm of online first-person shooters isn't exactly sparsely populated. Since last fall we've been given Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Team Fortress 2, Unreal Tournament 3 and Call of Duty 4, to name a few, all of which featured excellent online competitive modes.

Compared to that, this year has been relatively light for first-person shooter releases, something Nexon is hoping to address by bringing their free-to-play, pay-per-item online shooter, Combat Arms, to North America.

To get a better idea of what the game is and how it works, we had a chance to send a few questions to Herb Yang, product manager on the planning and design team. These questions were submitted and answered via email. Our screenshot and video galleries have been updated as well.

IGN: Who is developing the game? What projects have they worked on before?

Herb Yang: The developer is called Doobic Studios, and is based in Korea. Their previous project was a FPS online game called Heat Project which was released in Asia.

IGN: What are some of the main ideas behind this game's design? What type of
experience are you hoping to offer players?

Herb Yang: Combat Arms is geared to provide a flexible online FPS action experience. At its heart, Combat Arms is a fast-paced, multiplayer...
