303w ago - When I looked at my friend list on the PSN I was shocked! There were already playing 14 out of the 18 (who were online at the PSN) Killzone 2.

That is very impressive because the game will released the day after tomorrow. Also, there are already 14,300 players who played the Killzone 2 multiplayer for PS3!

How about you friends? How many people play the game with you?

I have to wait because I have the game ordered from an English shop, but until that time I have fun with Resistance 2!

Hackers Target XBox Live Players, Selling 'Booting Off' Services

200°
304w ago - Microsoft's Xbox Live is being targeted by malicious hackers selling services that kick players off the network. To quote:

The booting services are proving popular with players who want a way to get revenge on those who beat them in an Xbox Live game.

The attackers are employing data flooding tools that have been used against websites for many years.

Microsoft is "investigating" the use of the tools and said those caught using them would be banned from Xbox Live.

"There's been a definite increase in the amount of people talking about and distributing these things over the last three to four weeks," said Chris Boyd, director of malware research at Facetime Communications.

The smart thing about these Xbox tools is that they do not attack the Xbox Live network itself," he said.

He said the tools work by exploiting the way that the Xbox Live network is set up. Game consoles connecting to the Xbox network send data via the net, and for that it needs an IP address.

Even better, said Mr Boyd, games played via Xbox Live are not hosted on private servers.

Instead," he said, "a lot of games on Xbox Live are hosted by players."

If hackers can discover the IP address of whoever is hosting a game they can employ many...

Time to rev up your engines guys, because the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Game Update 1 is finally here! More than just a patch, there's a load of new features in there that will make your time playing MS: PR that little bit sweeter.

Check the [Register or Login to view links] for the comprehensive details, but in the meantime, here's a peek at a few of the major elements:

• You can now back up your save data for later restoration to the User Account it was created under (on any PS3 system, so you shouldn't ever need to lose your personal progress).
• A 'MotorStorm Helmet' icon is now displayed on-screen during critical data saves. This is in addition to the HDD Access Indicator, which currently flashes while the game makes a critical save.
• We've fixed an exploit that was recently found where pausing and unpausing during critical boosting would grant you an extra second or so of boost. Repeated over and over people have been able to shave seconds off the top leaderboard times. Seems like a lot of work for someone just to cheat at a leaderboard time, but it's all fixed now.
