New PSN Features in July: Compare Trophies & Leaderboard

100°
272w ago - Manu on the European PlayStation Blog has detailed some of the new features coming to the Internet portal side of the PSN in mid-July.

The biggest differences will be the ability to compare your trophies to those on your friends list and also view a little leaderboard to see how you rank amongst your friends.

To quote: First up is the new "My Trophies - Compare with your friends" page, which is fairly self-explanatory but will enable you to line up your Trophy collection alongside that of your PSN Friends.

Many of you also requested a Leaderboard, so you can see how you rank against your PSN Friends, and whether you've moved up, down or stayed in the same spot.

This is still work in progress and the design of these pages might change slightly, but as we get closer to the launch of these new features we'll let you know more details on how they'll work and the exact release date.
 

E3 2009: PSP Go Leads a Huge Wave of PSN Content

100°
276w ago - Today Sony's Peter Dille, Senior Vice President of Marketing & PlayStation Network, has announced the PSP Go alongside a huge wave of PSN content.

To quote: We've been saying that 2009 will be a breakout year for the PSP because of the killer software lineup that no other handheld can match. Well, the PSP story is even stronger now with the unveiling of the PSP go, the newest addition to the PlayStation Portable family that is sure to be the "must-have" device for consumers seeking the deepest gaming and entertainment experience on-the-go.

PSP go is sleek, pocket-sized, and 100 percent digital. This is the PSP designed for those of you who are completely comfortable downloading and storing digital media, and it's ideal for anyone who considers themselves an early adopter of the latest and greatest technology.





After talking extensively with consumers and our publishing partners, we know that now is the time to introduce PSP go. It will live alongside the current PSP-3000, and I should note that for those who prefer disc-based content, we remain committed to the UMD format, which will continue to be available at retail.

Here's a quick look at the key specs:

• The most portable PSP ever, PSP go is more...

50°
286w ago - The fourth God of War III developer interview is now available, courtesy of Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein as follows:

We know you've got questions about God of War III - the developers have answers. All during this year's GDC, we've been introducing you to the game's devs, as they explain their contribution to the GoWIII, and what's going to make the game great.

Today, things take a turn for the technical, as Lead Programmer Vassily Filippov talks about how much bigger God of War III is than its predecessors, the power of PS3's SPUs, and how PS3 Kratos couldn't even fit on a PS2.

Tomorrow we wrap up our God of War III developer series with the most exciting interview yet - the game's Combat Director. You won't want to miss this one!




 

Review: Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard for PS3

50°
288w ago - Who is Matt Hazard? This is a question that the majority of the gaming populace is going to inquire when they first get a glimpse at Eat Lead.

According to the front of the box this is his return to gaming, and unless you have been keeping tabs on the parody that publisher D3 has been creating with this title things could get confusing.

Eat Lead is a videogame that attempts to poke fun at the clichés of gaming while telling the story of a washed-up gaming legend that is finally getting a chance to make a comeback. What follows is a mess of poor game design, selective humor and some genuinely frustrating boss encounters.

As you can imagine you assume the role of Matt Hazard, a washed-up videogame superstar that was once the biggest name in interactive entertainment. Over the years your name becomes tarnished due to licensing it out to crappy spin-offs and of course the obligatory kart racing game.

Unfortunately for the company they have signed a lifetime contract with the fading star so he can simply sit back and enjoy his success without having to worry about anything. That is until a brand new CEO takes over the company and decides that it is time for Hazard to go. The plot revolves around Wally (the new CEO) and his mission to once and for all eliminate Hazard. Matt learns...
 

PS3 Home Events Space, Air Race Leaderboards Live in Europe!

50°
294w ago - Sony's PlayStation Home has been updated in Europe for PS3, however, Sony hasn't actually told anyone... instead sneaking it out without anyone noticing. To quote:

The Red Bull Air Race space now features a few different aircraft that you can choose between before flying the course. There's also a leaderboard which shows the top flyers globally as well as your friends' best times.

The Events space is also now open and the PSP-3000 treasure hunt has begun. The Events space plays host to a new multiplayer minigame called Tri-Sphere and hidden around the Gallery section are six hidden numbers.

If you find these numbers and input them into the website (accessible via a wall terminal inside Home) you stand the chance of winning a real PSP-3000. There's no word on when/if these these things will come to Home in the US but we'll let you know as soon as Sony tells us we stumble across it.

Home continues to evolve, albeit at a slower pace than we expected. These additions are certainly pleasing, but don't quite raise the service to the next level. Yet.
