100°
293w ago - According to a roughly translated Japanese Web page (linked above), it has been announced that Namco Bandai's PSP sim game The Idol Master SP will offer some kind of connectivity with PlayStation Home.

To quote: From what we can make out from the article, it seems that during your play-through of Idol Master SP you unlock "rewards" for use in Home.

It also looks as though Home will import avatars from Idol Master judging from the picture

This is a step in the right direction, and hopefully we will see a lot more PSP/Home integration in the future.

Uncharted 2 Details for PlayStation 3 Revealed in EDGE Magazine

250°
299w ago - CarbonCore has shared scans from the latest EDGE magazine (check out a few below, with the rest linked above) detailing Uncharted 2 for the PlayStation 3 console.

The preview in the latest issue reveals a lot of backstory, and fans of Nathan Drake will be happy to hear that Uncharted 2 will delve further into his character, showing that while he's "affable and charming, he can also be a jerk."

No longer is Nathan on a quest for Francis Drake, instead he's turned his sights to Marco Polo, whose journey back to Europe from the court of Kublai Khan saw his 600-man fleet dwindle to just a dozen survivors.

Ultimately Drake's journey will lead him to Tibet and an ancient city, which is said to house a gem that can grant wishes. The story in this game will allow for plenty of variety in the environments you'll be visiting.

Naughty Dog also clarifies what they mean by a "stealth mechanic," which put many people on edge when the game was announced. There is no intention of turning Uncharted into the next Splinter Cell; "stealth just gives you something more in the toolbox - another element, another choice that's available to you. Stealth or shooting - both choices are valid at any time."

There's plenty more interesting stuff to read in the full article. It's certainly...
