87w ago - Following up on their previous Uncharted 3 PS3 patch update notes, today Naughty Dog have revealed the version 1.09 changes outlined below.
To quote: Patch 1.09 will be deploying Monday April 9th 2012 (PST). Here is a rundown of all the changes we've made as we moved from 1.07 to 1.08 to 1.09.
The Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception 1.09 patch will be deployed April 9th 2012. It will roll out across all regions globally over 24 hours once deployed. We were able to get both patch 1.08 and 1.09 through the testing and approval processes around the same time. Therefore we are releasing them together. Since the changes are cumulative you'll only see an update for patch 1.09 when you download it.
Additionally, for those of you who prefer to watch video over reading the notes, we have made two videos detailing the changes in update 1.08 and update 1.09. These videos summarize the patch notes you'll read in this post. Videos such as these should be available for all patches moving forward. Hooray video!
Upload your cinema files to YouTube this weekend in order to preserve them.
IMPORTANT NOTE: After seeing the mention of video, if you don't...
87w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli announced today that a new Uncharted 3 New Drake's Deception PS3 Multiplayer Map Pack is incoming and will arrive on Tuesday with some video footage below.
To quote: You camped out on your favorite ledges to earn the kickoff medal on the Highrise and Yemen maps. You've mastered sniping fools that run carelessly through the Desert Village and Airstrip.
You've perfected your ninja stealth kills in the secluded nooks and crannies of the London Underground and City of Brass. Okay, maybe you haven't perfected any of that yet.
Maybe you're just looking for something different and new. Whether you're a rugged UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer fortune hunter or a causal explorer, this trailer should get you amped for Tuesday's new multiplayer map pack.
Four all-new UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer maps will be available for download on Tuesday, April 10th on PS Store. The Graveyard map sets you in motion as you fight among ships and shipping crates on rolling waves.
Old Quarter seems like a lovely scene on a cool Yemen night, but it's full of dangerous alleys and dimly lit rooms. The bar, the back alleys and the broadways of the London Streets map offer some prime...
89w ago - Today Naughty Dog developer Eric-ND has announced that the Uncharted 3 PS3 patch 1.08 is incoming, however, he warns that users should save their Cinema files to YouTube before it goes live.
To quote from his post on the official PlayStation board: Save your Cinema Files now!
Hi, The next patch (1.08) is coming very soon. We'll have a full list of all the changes that will happen as soon as it's been fully tested and signed off. One very important item we want to inform you about right now is your cinema files.
As soon you update to the next patch all previous cinema files you had will not work and will crash the game. In other words any cinema files you recorded pre-patch 1.08 won't work once patch 1.08 is installed.
Therefore we recommend that you upload any cinema files you currently want to save to YouTube.
As for the exact timing on the patch we'll keep you updated here on the forums and via the Naughty Dog Blog as well as on our Facebook and Twitter. For now it'll be best to get in the habit of uploading your favorite cinema files to YouTube as often as you can.
Please let us know in this thread if you have any questions. Full details on the next patch are coming soon!
93w ago - Following up on his previous update, today PS Vita homebrew developer wololo has announced that the PS Vita Half Byte Loader (VHBL) will arrive shortly after March 1, 2012 with details below.
To quote: "This has been a tough week for lots of you, coming to my blog everyday to see that no new information was available about the release of VHBL. Trust me, it's been a much tougher week for me, making sure things go according to my humble plan, coping with a few more issues than expected, and overall, taking all the insults about "being a faker" or "trying to boost my ego" without being able to say anything else than "please trust me".
Ok, let's reveal a few essential things here, starting with the bad news: The game used by Teck4′s exploit is not available on the US vita store. Blame Sony and their "275 out of 900 PSP games available for your vita" scheme for this, not us. Part of the waiting time was to see if Sony would add this game to the US store at some point. It is obviously compatible since it is available in other continents, so my guess is that this is a marketing or a legal decision.
94w ago - Zipper Interactive Community Specialist Chris Roper has announced today that Unit 13 is taking over Vita Hill Social Clubs alongside news of a PS Vita demo incoming detailed below.
To quote: The release of Unit 13 is just a few weeks away now, officially launching on March 6th, but you don't have to wait that long to get your hands on the game!
On Monday, February 20th, Unit 13 is going to take over all eight Vita Hill Social Clubs, giving you the chance to dig in to the full Unit 13 experience and find out what it's like to play a console-caliber shooter in the palm of your hands.
The top scoring players at each location will be eligible for some pretty awesome prizes, so play as much as you can during the limited-time event and try to get your name to the top of the leaderboards. For locations and times, check out the official Vita Hill Social Club page.
If you can't make it to one of the club dates you might miss out on the prize opportunities but you can still get an early taste of Unit 13 by checking out the downloadable demo via the PlayStation Store on Tuesday, February 21st.
The demo gives you access to one of the game's Direct Action missions and includes all six operatives and online leaderboard support. Perhaps best of all is that your scores...
