Street Fighter II HD (EU) Stuck in Sony QA Due to Problems

100°
286w ago - Although American players have been able to enjoy Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix for quite some time now, European PS3 owners have been left in the dark. We've heard the cries before: "blame Sony," they'd say.

ThePSN.co.uk (linked above) had a chat with Capcom UK's Leo Tan to find out why SCEE is denying release of the game. To quote:

The nice Leo Tan at Capcom UK advised us that the release was currently dependant on "Sony QA", having been submitted twice before for release but winding up banjoed by SCEE due to "faults and other problems" that required the game to be "redone".

Capcom plan to submit a further version "hopefully within three weeks" that they expect to pass QA, but they "can't give any assurances as [we] thought the last one would pass".

Rumors still abound that the game was delayed due to arriving in Europe just after Sony's "no Trophies, no release" rule came into effect, so perhaps we'll get a definitive, Trophy-ready version by February.
 

Sony Launches World's Thinnest TV, Slimmer Than Slice of Toast

50°
286w ago - The £3,000 TV, the latest in the Japanese firm's Bravia range, is just 9.9mm thick. That is 60 TIMES slimmer than a typical set from the 1950s.

It is so thin because tiny LED lights usually illuminating the flat screen from behind have been placed round the sides.

Spokesman Christian Brown said: "Sony is continuously striving to lead the way with advanced innovations in TV technology and cutting edge design. We're excited to see our customers' reactions."

THE 1969 moon landing has been voted the best "World First" captured on TV, according to a Sony poll to promote its new tellies. Barack Obama's inauguration was second and the assassination of John F Kennedy third.
 

Sony is Working Harder for Gamers Than Microsoft and Nintendo

250°
286w ago - We all know who is winning the console war, but who is putting more effort into their gaming division? We break down the basics in each company's work efforts, and showed what each company has to deal with in the gaming industry.

Advertising:
Everyone knows that Microsoft is doing an excellent job with their advertising campaign. You see their advertisements all over national television, stores, and even in some cases on Mountain Dew (Halo 3). Nintendo does not advertise to quite the extent of Microsoft, but that there really is no need for it.

The Wii already has ridiculous sales and there is no need for Nintendo to waste their money on marketing. Everyone already knows what the Wii is about and putting commercials everywhere would be useless. And then comes Sony.

We all know that Sony is not on the ball with their marketing but I feel we will begin to see changes this year. We have already seen them advertise to the max with the Winter X-Games and I look for it to continue. Especially with titles like Killzone 2, God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, Heavy Rain, and much more expected this year.

Microsoft:
Microsoft currently only has to deal with one platform, the Xbox 360. With one console, they have to work on games for that console as well as bring out...
 

Why Sony is Utterly Broken and Why a PS4 is Needed Now

650°
286w ago - Smart House Australia has put Sony's PlayStation 3 console under heavy fire, by stating that the PS4 needs to come out now and Sony is falling too far behind.

They criticize Sony for not being like Nintendo, and being more interested in "grunt and performance than something as simple as family entertainment and a device that is exciting to use and cheap to produce."

Moreover, they actually doubt Sony has the ability to deliver a new breakthrough console in the future.

To quote: The Company that has been kicking Sony's backside is Nintendo because they have done what Sony could have done but failed to so because Sony engineers are more interested in grunt and performance than something as simple as family entertainment and a device that is exciting to use and cheap to produce.

So as games like Wii Fit and the Wii interactive sporting games clean up sales because of a simple interactive controller Sony is still contemplating what to do next.

This is not the first time that this has happened, Sony engineers did a great job of designing the walkman until Apple came along and gave them a software lesson that was more about designing an IPod that was more consumers friendly and easy to use than the Walkman. Now Nintendo has done the same but this time in the gaming market.
 

LittleBigPlanet Patch 1.08 is Now Live for Sony's PlayStation 3

50°
286w ago - Update: The LittleBigPlanet Patch 1.08 patch, initially though to be 'Edam' by Media Molecule, was [Register or Login to view links] by LittleBigPlanet developer Sam_Protagonist to only contain update content as follows:

"The 1.08 update contains content only. The Edam update is still going through the testing process and we'll have more information about its release date once it's completed testing."

To quote: This patch has been confirmed as a content-only patch, installing the latest costume textures (required for players to see other people online who are using the latest DLC costumes).

We can confirm that this patch is 13Mb and we notice that it has re-arranged selected content in the LittleBigStore. This screenshot shows how the Kratos' costume now appears for players who've already downloaded it (the God of War pack icon showing the three costumes no longer appears to players who've not already downloaded it). This makes sense as the Kratos costume and God of War pack are out on Thursday.

We've heard reports of some players still having problems with LBP, so we're still not 100% sure that the patch is Edam - we'll report back when we hear confirmation.
