Rumor: Music Downloads Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network?

100°
292w ago - CNET has an interesting PSP/PSN rumor that might interest all you music lovers out there.

The word from [Register or Login to view links] is that Sony has been talking to some big recording labels. This is of course about placing music on the PlayStation Network for download.

Apparently the pitched idea is focused on the PSP. This would make yet another great expansion to the PSN library. Add the rumored game rental service, the ever growing movies/TV shows library, and the talks about making PSN for other Sony products, this could get PSN to be a full fledged download hub from Sony.

Not a bad idea if you ask me. The focus on PSN will grow our reach, and will potentially cover the things we have been wanting for a long time. If this is Sony slowly trying to get digital distribution to us, they seem to be doing it the right way.

Don't get your hopes up though, this is all rumors. Now with that said, where is my cloud gaming?!

Sony is Refusing to Comment on trICO for PlayStation 3

50°
293w ago - A Team ICO Project Trico HD trailer and screenshot was posted yesterday, but a follow-up mail to Sony on the subject, to confirm if Fumito Ueda will be at E3 in two weeks time with trICO in toe met with a response as follows:

Yup, nout. Sony said that on the subject of Team ICO, they werent commenting on it. The official line given to us was:

With regards to the Team ICO video, I'm afraid we're not commenting on this.

Which means that, unlike SCEA, SCEE do acknowledge it, they're just not talking about it as such.

Which now worries us even more now considering the earlier news that a E3 reveal is now 50-50. But considering the positive reaction to the trailer, surely it will lead somewhere to a reveal 2 weeks from now, right?

Mind you, no comment basically means it's coming or real, in this case, it's real. We shall see...

200°
293w ago - PlayStation 3 is set to receive existing Fallout 3 downloadable content beginning in June, with two new add-ons announced coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Bethesda has announced plans to bring Operation Anchorage, The Pitt and Broken Steel to PlayStation 3 over the coming months. These Fallout 3 add-ons were previously only available for Xbox 360 and PC.

Operation Anchorage will be released on PS3 in June, with the other content following four to six weeks apart. An update will be released for the PlayStation 3 version of the game to enable such content to work.

Meanwhile new content is coming for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Fallout 3. These are Point Lookout "Explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content" and Mothership Zeta "The aliens have returned, and they're pissed. Experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you're tough enough to survive."

Point Lookout will be released on PC and Xbox 360 in June and follow on PlayStation 3 once the three other expansions have been released. The cost for the initial PC/X360 release will be 800 Microsoft points. Mothership Zeta will cost the same and will arrive on PC/X360 in July, again with a PS3 release once the other four pieces of content have appeared on the PlayStation Network.
 

Zombie Apocalypse Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network

250°
293w ago - Nihilistic Designer John Slavin has announced news that Zombie Apocalypse is hitting PSN today, as follows:

My name is John Slavin, one of [Register or Login to view links]'s game designers on Zombie Apocalypse, the downloadable title from Konami coming to the PlayStation Network next month.

I wanted to drop in and show some Zombie love to the PlayStation community and give you some previews to what you can expect to see!

So what is Zombie Apocalypse about?

Zombie Apocalypse is pure and gory wish fulfillment. We wanted to strip off the woes of increasingly complex modern mega-games, and retreat back into the world of dank arcades and late-night movie rentals that was our childhood in the 80's and 90's.

We knew multiplayer was a key feature in a game of this type, so we pushed hard to get four-player online co-op integrated from the start. With core values in place, we set out to fill that savage coffer with all the classic zombie lore we loved.

This was not a game in search of a hook, beyond perhaps one to skewer a zombie on. Our goal was to produce a pure arcade shooter, rooted in dual-stick classics such as [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links]
