Rumor: Sony May Launch $40 Downloadable PS3 Game Lineup

400°
283w ago - Warhawk, SOCOM, and Burnout Paradise are a couple of "full" titles that Sony has given gamers the chance to digitally download onto their HDDs.

While each game took up its fair amount of space, it was definitely convenient to not have to put the disc into the console in order to play the games. The ease of booting up our beloved console and clicking a menu item to start playing a great title like Burnout Paradise is definitely something that made the occupied HDD space worth it.

If this is something you've enjoyed, you may be happy to know that some analysts think that this may become the norm for the electronics giant we've all come to love.

According to Futuresource Consulting's senior market analyst Mai Hoang, Sony is [Register or Login to view links] rolling out an entire lineup of $40 downloadable titles that are sold at a discount in comparison to their $60 disc-based counterparts. While this idea has been tested by Sony with the previously titles mentioned, it's a treatment that first-party PSP titles in Japan have been enjoying for quite some time.

Futuresource believes that Sony wants to take a bigger piece of the digital distribution market which could validate this new game-delivery strategy. Considering that digitally...
 

Speculation: Is Sony Confirming Rumored 2.7 Firmware Update?

550°
284w ago - Update: Talking in the official [Register or Login to view links], someone asked if I saw the past codes. I replied yes, and the letters XI from the past messages sparked something.

If you didn't already read, the rumors for PS3 Firmware 2.7 claimed the in-game XMB loading has been drastically improved. Maybe they're revamping the in-game XMB as a whole. The letters XI could stand for 'Cross-Interface'. Okay, that's it Sony, I'm pumped.

A couple of days ago, we found some strange codes and writing in PlayStation Home. We posted screenshots, and no one really knew what they were. The codes and writing are back, but now it looks as if they're actually meant to be there and hinting us about something.

Could this help us confirm the rumors of 2.7 and it's features being true? Or is someone at Sony seriously not coding PS Home correctly? Could they be subtitles from an upcoming title Sony is already hyping?
 

Sony Losing Third-Party Exclusives Made the PS3 Shine

350°
284w ago - When I first heard news of Grand Theft Auto going mulitplatform I was shocked, a little mad, and admittedly a bit nervous. Next came Devil May Cry, a franchise once only available on PlayStation consoles.

After that went Tekken, along with many others. The most recent was a major shock to the gaming community, with Final Fantasy XIII going to Xbox 360. So how does all of this benefit us PlayStation 3 owners?

Sony, while always having been known for having talented 1st party developers that create quality titles such as God of War and Shadow of Colossus, suddenly had its back against the wall.

If your back is against the wall, and you are feeling cornered, your only choice is fight, or flight. Sony being the king of the consoles, certainly isn't the company to go down without a long-fought battle.

In this battle, the console wars, the tide is starting to turn. Xbox 360 is starting to slow down, and developers are starting to see the power of the PlayStation 3. And why is this? Because Sony 1st party developers have been forced stepped up their "game".

Let's take a look at the 2008 holiday line-up. For shooters, you had Resistance 2 which raised the bar for all multiplayer games with its 60 person multiplayer and its thriving community. We also had...
 

New Twisted Metal Details for Sony's PlayStation 3 Console

100°
284w ago - Unless you have been living under a rock you probably already have heard of Twisted Metal coming to the PS3.

This game is personally one of my top 3 car combat games of all time, plus the new PS3 version is being developed by one of the best developers in the game Industry, David Jaffe. He is well known for the Twisted Metal series and the God of War series.

He confirmed that this game will be coming exclusively to the PS3 with no further info on the game until now.

I have covered every possible factual thing related to Twisted Metal for the PS3 on the Internet for months, and here are some of my findings, but remember nothing has been confirmed about this game so these are all still rumors:

• Tons of weapons and combo attacks
• Improved vehicle physics
• Game will run at a smooth 60-frames-per-second
• All the old characters are back including some new faces
• Co-op modes

I personally can't wait to see more news and trailers for this game because we haven't heard much news about this triple A title in a while.
