Speculation: Logo Hints at Killzone 3 for PS3 in Development?

100°
268w ago - Today TheSixthAxis.com (linked above) is reporting that they have received an e-mail from an unknown source who allegedly has included a Killzone 3 logo prototype.

Odds are high it's simply a PhotoShop job, however, there is always a chance that a marketer has selected TheSixthAxis to begin a promotional campaign leading up to an announcement at GamesCom or a similar upcoming event.

To quote: "It came from someone I've never had any contact with before, had no message in the email and no further explanation was offered. I'm just publishing it because I know you will all want to see it but I can't vouch for it and I am marking it (for obvious reasons) as a rumour. Make what you will of it.

We have contacted the person who sent us the image below and asked for more information which, if we get it, we will keep you informed of."

So, that being said.. if anyone has time to do some detective work on the picture feel free to comment below.
 

Toshiba Blu-ray Support Hints of an XBox 360 Add-On Coming?

250°
269w ago - After Toshiba Corp., the developer of the HD DVD format, releases its Blu-ray disc player by the end of the year, Microsoft Corp. will have to follow and launch Blu-ray add-on for its Xbox 360 game console.

The support of Blu-ray disc (BD) by Toshiba means that the format is finally becoming a de-facto standard for high-definition home video. Toshiba is the last major consumer electronics maker to support BD.

To quote: Microsoft has publicly stated that high-definition video downloads and streaming is the future of video delivering to homes. However, it also had HD DVD add-on for Xbox 360, hence, the company admits that physical media is still popular.

Moreover, with all the consumer electronics making BD players, Microsoft also needs to provide such an option to its consumer electronics video-game platform: it is clear that there will be much higher demand towards Blu-ray hardware in the coming years.

Windows 7 operating systems supports burning of Blu-ray discs and recognizes their file structure. In a recent TV advertisement Microsoft even said that Blu-ray support is one of the advantages that certain Windows-based computers have over Apple Macintosh systems.

The main reason why Microsoft is unenthusiastic regarding Blu-ray is mandatory support of BD-Java interactive...
 

Survey Hints at Netflix Coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 Console?

250°
272w ago - A new Netflix survey is making the rounds on the Internet; this time it features questions on PS3 support.

Will Netflix be making its way to Sony's PlayStation 3 console after all?

To quote: A survey from Netflix hints at the potential future of the Netflix service, including PlayStation 3 support.

With the one-year anniversary of Netflix's appearance on the XBOX 360 approaching, it's entirely possible that the movie and TV rental service is looking to branch out into other platforms to ensure total domination of gamers' living rooms.

However, there is one interesting bit of information in this survey; unlike the 360's built-in Netflix streaming, though, this potential PS3 streaming requires a Netflix Instant Streaming Disc to work.

This would insinuate that Netflix support would not be built directly into the PS3's firmware like it is on 360, but rather supported through an outside application.

Considering the fact that the PS3 supported Hulu until just a week ago, however, it's always possible that this could change.
 

PlayStation Xi Final Videos Available, Hints of PS3 Trophy Room?

50°
275w ago - A few days ago Sony announced that their PlayStation Home alternate reality mystery dubbed Xi's secret was out.

The article didn't go into much detail due to spoilers, leaving people like myself who don't have the time nor desire to get into Xi wondering what it was all about. Thanks to SKFU, wonder no more!

To quote: You need all fragments to enter the big metal door in the Hub and then you have the choice. Destroy Xi or use Xi, watch the videos below + Jess' final video message.

After all the pain to collect all fragments and butterflies you gain 3 in-game trophies which are not even in the normal trophy system. So the thought of Xi to continue is near and if you now go to the manhole on the central plaza you can visit the lounge for people who finished XI. New quests are waiting for you there ;-)

3 trophies at the end of...
 

Square Enix Hints Towards a Killer E3 2009 Showcase

50°
277w ago - Square Enix made a heck of a fuss at last year's E3. Its announcement at Microsoft's pre-show press conference that the highly anticipated then PS3 exclusive Final Fantasy XIII would also be coming to the Xbox 360 was the talk of the town.

Will the legendary developer be able to make as big an impact at the 2009 show? It would seem so.

To quote: We've received word on what Square Enix will be showing at the E3 event, and fans of two of their biggest series will be extremely happy with the media set to get far better access to some key products than we had initially hoped.

As much as we would like to tell you the specifics it has been requested that the names of the games be kept under wraps until the company has a chance to officially announce them. However, for the sake of excitement we thought we would give you the heads up so you can discuss it amongst yourselves.

We don't want to push our luck on this one, but there is no Square Enix press conference this year so you can expect an announcement prior to the E3 show regarding no less than three big surprise games which are currently unannounced - at least two of which are multi-format.

We wish we could tell you more, but knowing something is better than knowing nothing... debate below, but don't ask...
