26w ago - Ninja Theory Communications Manager Dominic Matthews has detailed DmC: Devil May Cry demo PlayStation 3 DLC complete with a video trailer below!
To quote: Hello, Dominic Matthews here from Ninja Theory bringing you an update on DmC: Devil May Cry.
First off, I want to tell you about some DmC add-on content that we just announced. Called Vergil's Downfall, it features six brand new missions, in new environments where you play as Dante's twin brother Vergil.
Vergil has his own unique combat system (if you know Vergil from the previous games you'll recognize some of his signature moves) and the story, which is intertwined with the events of the main game, takes place in Vergil's very own personal hell. Lovely!
You'll also get to take on new enemies and upgrade Vergil's combat as you play. Once you've completed all the new missions you'll have four new difficulty modes to unlock including Son of Sparda and Vergil Must Die, both of which feature unique enemy waves and enemy behaviours that are different from those in the three default difficulty settings.
The reason that we're telling you about this add-on content before the main game is even out is not because it's finished (because it's not,...
26w ago - Criterion Games Community Manager Jeremy Chubb has confirmed that the Need for Speed Most Wanted demo is out today on PSN with five tips for fans below!
To quote: Need for Speed Most Wanted is now out, and today we're celebrating 1 million Autolog users with the release of the PlayStation 3 demo. We're bringing PlayStation.Blog the inside track on what new players should look for, and how to dominate the Most Wanted demo.
Making a demo for a large-scale open world game is a major challenge. We wanted to put together a snapshot of Most Wanted's blend of exploration, connected competition and explosive, over-the-top police chase action to give you a taste of what to expect from the main game.
The action takes place in a locked down version of the city - you get to play in Fairhaven's Downtown and Four Bridges districts. These areas are loaded with billboards, jumps, speed cameras and hidden cars.
The game kicks you off in Aston Martin's beautiful V12 Vantage. Race to the first location, and we'll bust out the classic Porsche 911 Carrera S.
Explore the city further, and you'll find a "Jack Spot" with Audi's flagship R8 Spyder. Park and hit triangle to instantly switch. It's as easy as that. In the main game, it's the same deal but on a grand scale. There are over...
27w ago - Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer HDMadness has updated PS3 ErmaC 4.30 CFW to version 1.3 which now includes a completely fixed Demo Mode and more as outlined below!
Again this is not for the PSP but it a PSP emulator, now what makes this stand apart, is that it is open source but it is also multi platform, and by multi platform i mean almost anything out there can run from apple devices to android (yes phones can run it as well) to Windows, to Linux.
There is one slight drawback though it is still in early development and only plays a certain amount of games not full fledged (PPSSPP Compatibility List) but homebrew and certain low end graphical games, however, this does show promise. Read more about this in the quote below.
To quote: PPSSPP is an open source project, licensed under the GPL 2.0. Anyone is welcome to contribute their improvements to the code, and the hope is that over time this will resolve the compatibility problem.
