50°
293w ago - Today Emmanuel Olivier, president of the team behind Syberia, has launched an SOS to all fans of the Syberia franchise to bring the game to the PS3 console.

They want you to help rally Sony to support the independent creation, and convince Sony to change its rules and allow Syberia 3 to hit the PS3.

Press Release: RETURNS ON THE SYBERIA 3 ANNOUNCEMENT

April 17, 2009 - Following the countless messages and questions from fans which followed our announcement on April 1st regarding the launch of Syberia 3, Emmanuel Olivier, President of Microïds, gives more details on that announcement.

"Syberia 3 is not an April Fool's joke. The game is highly expected by the community of fans of adventure games and fans of Kate Walker and it will be launched, it is one of our most strategic projects at Microïds and we have been anticipating it for a long time.

It will be released on PC for sure, however, on PS3, this could actually turn into an April Fool's joke because SONY is the only decision-maker on this point, as strange as it may seem to some people.

Benoît Sokal, the author of Syberia and Syberia 2, has mentioned several times in the press that he would only participate in a sequel to his masterpiece if he had enough financial means to design and develop...
 

Sony's PSP Detective Game Negotiates June 2009 Release

50°
293w ago - Does a game called Okage: Shadow King ring a bell? This PSP game is from the same developer, Zener Works.

First seen at Tokyo Game Show, Diamond and the Sound of a Gunshot is a visual novel where players negotiate tense situations.

See how the portraits push each other? It's more than a dramatic effect. This lets players know how close they are at pushing their negotiations.

Even though it hasn't gotten much attention, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will release Diamond and the Sound of a Gunshot in on June 18. There's little chance that Sony will give this game a retail release, but if Patapon 2 can go digital why can't this?

Sony Refuses to Replace Backwards-Compatible PS3 Consoles

750°
293w ago - A TAWKN (linked above) user who goes by dn2500f has had his 80GB PS3 with backwards-compatibility at Sony's repair center in Ontario, Canada for three weeks now.

Sony apparently only offered to give him a new model 80GB PS3, which does not include PS2 support (over 1,900 PS2 games that he can no longer play).

To quote: Today he called in to get a status update and was told that it was beyond repair, and because Sony doesn't make that model anymore they can't replace it... despite the fact that he bought four years' worth of Sony Care extended warranty for it, for a total of five years.

They offered to give him a new model 80GB PS3.

He argued with them that he is not just losing a PS3, but PS2 support (that's over 1900 PS2 games that he can no longer play), extra USB ports, plus the built-in card readers. Sony's reply? Too freaking bad. (Not a direct quote, obviously).

This guy is very angry at Sony, and rightfully so. They didn't offer him anything but a far inferior model than what he bought about 12 months ago, which he says is unacceptable - and I agree.

At the VERY least, they should be trying to make up for this to him and other users who paid $100 extra for a console that has only one life left to live.

If I were in his situation,...

Target will take over the role with immediate effect and will develop a range of PlayStation apparel and accessories, including toys, food stationary, and housewares across Europe and Australasia.

"We really want our consumers to have the ability to interact with our brands and characters in ways other than just on screen. We feel Target Entertainment has the vibrancy and experience to help us do this successfully."

Global brand director, Helen Howells, of Target Entertainment Group, added: "To work with a brand like PlayStation, and its range of products, is a great opportunity for us. With a portfolio of fantastic games we will offer new and longer standing fans a range of products that will really add to their PlayStation experience."
