118w ago - Sony's VP of Network Operations Americas Eric Lempel has announced that an exclusive 3D Sports Illustrated Swimsuit video is hitting PSN today.
To quote: As the folks over at Sports Illustrated previously announced, their iconic swimsuit models are available to make an appearance in your living room today--in 3D--when the exclusive video hits the PlayStation Store.
The "Swimsuit in 3D" video, which is also available for rental and purchase in 2D format, features the swimsuit models on-location at their 2011 shoots for the popular edition of the magazine.
In addition to the behind-the-scenes 3D video, we're also excited to bring you more than 12 hours of Swimsuit video content, including the official hour-long "Making of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011" video, four videos focusing on this year's shoot locations, and "Making of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit" videos from the last decade.

130w ago - As a follow-up to our previous article, today Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has detailed Sports Champions for PlayStation Move by the numbers.
To quote: It's been just about two months since PlayStation Move introduced true 1-to-1 table tennis, archery, and gladiator dueling to your living room.
The team worked really hard at making Sports Champions easy to play for everyone, while still making sure it has loads of challenge and depth for all you hardcore enthusiasts.
You have played and played and played, in volumes way beyond our best expectations. So with the initial server shock faded, we can look fondly at our launch past.
Check out some of the cool global stats we put together for some insider information on what your competition has been up to over the first month of play. We've also recently released a new Reverse Course DLC, but more on than in a bit.
First, the numbers:
As mentioned earlier, the Reverse Course DLC is also now available on the Playstation Store. If you are hungry for more Disc Golf content this is definitely for you. We've taken all 18 holes and re-worked them for a fresh new...
131w ago - Today VG247.com (linked above) has reported on some leaked images of what is believed to be the Sony PSP2 Dev Kit, which sports twin sticks and a trackpad.
To quote: "The shots clearly show the device's forward- and rear-facing cameras, as well as the much-discussed trackpad on the rear of the unit.
Note that this isn't the console's final form factor. As you can see, some developers are working with a kit with similar construction to a PSP go at the moment - see the update below - with a sliding screen over physical controls.
We don't know when the final physical spec will be nailed down, only that this isn't it. PSP2 is supposedly heading for release in late 2011.
If you're in any doubt as to the authenticity of these images, don't be. It is what it is. Enjoy.
Update: We've been told by a source that these images are from the last kit. There's a newer one, which is a single, non-sliding block.
Remember those last Kotaku rumours of the unit overheating? Sony switched back a form like PSP-1000 in order to cool it down."
137w ago - Senior Producer Josh Bridge has revealed today that Dead Rising 2: Psycho, Ninja, Sports, and Soldier DLC are all coming soon to PSN.
To quote: As a huge zombie lover, I am really pumped to see us able to get Dead Rising series out to PS3 owners. Everyone deserves the right to slice a zombie in two!
Developing the game for the PS3 was something that we started right at the beginning of our development process. We are not fans of porting, and wanted to be sure that we maximized the PS3's capabilities.
Our development tools allow us to be platform agnostic while at the same time maximize the power of the Cell processor. The zombies are handled by the SPUs, allowing us to throw tons of them onscreen while still managing their movement and AI.
We also have have lots of cool processing effects going, something that was also made possible by the PS3′s SPUs.
We have tons of stuff to mess around with in Dead Rising 2, and having a huge amount of disc space to use really allowed us to get everything we wanted into the game. Installing the game definitely speeds up load times, something that made developing for the PS3 a great experience.
We also have some cool DLC coming up that we got a kick out of making. We really liked the idea of customizing Chuck,...
137w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has revealed today that Sports Champions Haunted PS3 DLC is coming to PSN this Tuesday.
To quote: Let me bring you back in time to E3 2009, where we debuted a little tech demo for a brand new motion control platform, later to become what we now all know and love as the PlayStation Move.
In the tech demo you could sword fight with a skeleton (anyone remember tickling the skeleton's chin with the sword blade?), use dual handed throwing stars, and shoot arrows at an endless parade of skeletons. Most of the mechanics in the demo were the basis of a title that was, at the time, only a work in progress, but would become Sports Champions.
Well, our skeletons have finally been let out of the closet again with a brand new Sports Champions DLC pack called the Haunted Pack, available for sale through the PlayStation Store on Tuesday, October 5 for $4.99. The new content includes three new frightful characters that are playable in all six events, as well as new spooky equipment for each of the sports.

• Bocce - Skull Bocce Set
