276w ago - Sierra Entertainment today announced that Red Baron Arcade, a World War I based air combat game originally seen on PC, will hit the PlayStation Network later next month on September 18.
In addition to an expansive single-player campaign sprawling 36 missions, the game's online multiplayer aspect features three gameplay modes in all – Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag – each with support for up to eight players.
Sounds great, but seeing as the original received fairly mediocre reviews across the board, it'd be wise to try this one before buying.
Thankfully, a playable demo will be available on release day.
276w ago - Endsights writes: The rumor reads: "[The $199 SKU will feature] the traditional Arcade goodies (512MB memory card, etc.), the new Fall update pre-loaded as well as a motion controller and a few motion controlled mini games developed by Rare."
Aside from the motion-controller headline, the announcement of the Fall Dashboard Update (Xbox Experience) being pre-loaded on the system should raise some eyebrows.
If this rumor is true-that would mean that the new Xbox Experience would be hitting Xbox 360 consoles in the very near future; probably before September 7th rolls around.
Again, while this is speculation upon speculation, it is definitely something to look out for in the coming weeks.

Both versions unveil the new Team Management feature: Custom Tactics, giving the player a chance to sample tactical options in each of the key categories (Build Up, Chance Creation, and Defence).

279w ago - Posted by Travis Williams (Sr. Producer, SCEA) today:
Hello everyone it's Travis Williams, PAIN Producer, again and I wanted to take some time to tell you about the new PlayStation Network Trophies being added to PAIN Downtown.
The last trophy I ever "earned" was in ROTC. That was way back in High School (tragic I know). So, I have been really excited to see PlayStation 3 trophies make their way into games both old and new. It's a new way to show your "ePump-a-tude". PAIN already features internal trophies that make the modes challenging.
That's why it's so awesome to get to make a whole new set of trophies. Here's a list of some of the Trophies you will see next month. If the names seem sophomoric or juvenile to you, then you clearly haven't been playing PAIN enough. That's kinda "How We Do."
To answer some questions before they come up...
Q: When will Trophies be available for PAIN?
A: When the Amusement Park ships on 9-4-2008 we will update PAIN to include trophies.
Q: When does Amusement Park ship?
Q: Are Trophies retroactive?
A: Most of the trophy requirements are new so we haven't tracked your progress until now. Some work you will get credit for.
