279w ago - The day just wouldn't be complete without some additional PS3 Slim details, rumors, hype or speculation... now would it?

Today Examiner.com (linked above) is reporting that the PlayStation 3 Slim is rumored to make a September 2nd launch, with an official announcement coming on August 18, 2009.

This roots from Elios83 of [Register or Login to view links] who states, to quote:

"I've heard from retail sources, which have been absolutely reliable in the past that PS3 Slim will launch throughout Europe on September 2 at 299€, official announcement at the GamesCon. We'll see but considering the same sources have been spot on for two years in a row (40GB+price cut and 80GB) I personally don't doubt them "

Based on that, the Examiner speculates that as Gamescon takes place during mid-August Sony may include the PS3 Slim announcement during their 3-hour long press conference on August 18th.

Of course only time will tell for certain, however, NeoGAF is usually on top of things in the gaming realm so here is to hoping this rumor pans out!

280w ago - Today, Capcom announced that North American PC gamers will be able to get their hands on Resident Evil 5 on September 15th.

European PC owners will have to wait three extra days, or September 18th, to get their hands on the game.

To quote: The PC version will have a couple of additional things from the console versions – chiefly, stereoscopic 3D, as well as new costumes and "new and improved" mercenary mode that boasts three times as many enemies.

Capcom promised that "more details" will be available on the PC version of RE5 in the coming months.
 

Rumor: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves to Arrive on September 30?

50°
280w ago - French Web site PS3Gen shared an alleged 'leaked' copy of Sony's PS3 games calendar for this year.

Among the biggest revelations unveiled in this calendar would be the supposed release date of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves which shows a release date of September 30, 2009.

To quote: Up to now, Naughty Dog would go no farther than to give us the release window of their highly anticipated sequel, keeping it pinned at an "Autumn release."

They have also so far debunked rumors of an October launch for the game, which this calendar, as you will see, does corroborate.

That's because Uncharted 2 is listed as being released on 30/9/2009 = September 30, 2009. Definitely, that's not October. It's Autumn, yeah, but not October.

Included in the alleged leaked info would be a still undated Gran Turismo 5, as well as two Singstar titles for Michael Jackson, one being with the special microphone.

Take this news with a fair grain of salt in the meantime, until we hear anything more substantial - and better yet, official - word from Sony or Naughty Dog themselves.
 

Dirt 2 for the PlayStation 3 Console Expected in September 2009

250°
300w ago - The original Dirt was a hit across the board, which naturally means that Codemasters is hard at work on a sequel. Known quite simply as Dirt 2, this follow-up was unveiled by the English publisher at a press event last night in San Francisco.

During the presentation, the big theme that Codemasters was hammering on for this sequel was the idea of off-road racing with an extreme sports attitude. What does that mean, exactly?

The first game featured voice-over work by motocross legend Travis Pastrana, but this time around Codemasters is looking to go full tilt with the game's presentation.

A teaser video revealed a scene from the player's RV, the hub where you control all your career mode exploits, and it was a raucous collection of grime, half-naked women, and general insanity. That should serve as a good hint of what the overall attitude will be.

But of course, this is still a racing game, and gussying up the user interface will take you only so far. Thankfully, Codemasters revealed some intriguing information about the type of racing you'll be doing this time around. The biggest chunk of information they let out is the inclusion of stadium rally events.

They showed a gameplay video of a fictional stadium built around London's Battersea Power Station, with...
