Killzone 2 Helghast Forces to Invade Sony's PlayStation Home

300°
288w ago - PlayStation Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein shared the following "intel" via PS Blog today:

In the upcoming (just 12 days away!) Killzone 2, the ISA forces lead an assault of the planet Helghan. But that doesn't mean the Helghast are on the defensive. In fact, my intel tells me that the Helghast forces are en route to PlayStation Home today.

Fortunately, the Helghast won't be armed with STA-52 Light Assault Rifles (per se), but with demo codes for Killzone 2.

So if you don't already have access (by pre-ordering), just jump into Home tonight starting at about 6pm Pacific (9pm Eastern) and keep an eye out for the Helghast soldiers. When you find one, work up the courage and... just ask. If they've got any left, they'll direct message you with the demo key.

Then you can punch that code into the PlayStation Store (upper right corner), download the demo, and repay the Helghan emissary by... invading their planet. Oh well.
 

Panasonic May Beat Sony to 3D Games by 2010

200°
288w ago - Panasonic is in development on its own 3D Blu-ray entertainment system which will be available for the public to purchase by 2010.

This concept was shown by Sony some time ago, but stated that their player will not be sold to the public, mainly because you'll need the proper hardware to make it run. And it's not like your everyday Joe's living room will come equipped with full 3D-ready technology.

Panasonic is planning to develop a Plasma 3D Full HD home theater system, a 3D-ready digital cinema projector with a 380-inch screen theater for 3D HD picture quality evaluation, and a 3-D ready MPEG-4 AVC High Profile encoder.

They have been working with Hollywood studios closely to produce some movies into 3D format already. It probably wouldn't be too far along until the 3D system will be made ready for gaming.

Eisuke Tsuyuzaki, Managing Director of Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory stated:

"Panasonic recognizes that for 3D FHD to succeed, just like Blu-ray, collaboration on research, development and production with studios and content providers is absolutely essential".

He added: "The creation of the new PHL Authoring Center will enable Hollywood to start trial production and ultimately create commercially available 3D FHD titles to realize...
 

PCB Productions Credits Sony Bend on Syphon Filter 5 for PS3

50°
288w ago - Just over a week ago a rumor that a new Syphon Filter title may be in development for PS3 surfaced.

Today, some more fuel has been added to that rumor as follows: A particularly watchful, Columbo-esque reader at [Register or Login to view links] recently put a few widespread pieces of information together to draw an intriguing conclusion - Sony Bend, the studio behind every Syphon Filter title to date, recently put up a help wanted ad calling for a full-time game tools programmer with PS3 or Xbox 360 experience.

But wait, there's more- adding further fuel to the Filter flames is an entry on the Credits [Register or Login to view links] of digital content creation company PCB Productions. About a quarter of the way down the page, the company acknowledges their mo-cap work for Syphon Filter 5, a PS3 title coming out of, you guessed it, Sony Bend.

This one ranks pretty high on the likelihoodometer- we'll be waiting with bated breath to see if Sony will confirm Gabe's triumphant return to home consoles.
 

Graphically Microsoft's XBox 360 is No Match for Sony's PS3

400°
288w ago - Ever since the PlayStation 3 got out on the market there have been different comparisons of the two systems.

Well, there is nothing wrong with them, but now, graphically, with upcoming titles like Killzone 2 and even Uncharted 2, the Xbox 360 console has nothing to compare with to the PS3.

I recently read the [Register or Login to view links] of Killzone 2 that was published in The Guardian newspaper and the reviewer stated that the game is, and i qoute; "not quite up to the awesome standard of 360's Gears Of War 2″.

I know he's not talking about the graphics. And I said to myself; "What the hell is so damn awesome about Gears Of War 2?". The gameplay maybe? It's still too much alike the first Gears Of War. There is nothing wrong with the gameplay in Killzone 2. It's been too much picking of how much the PS3 suck. No great games and how the quality of the graphics that's not any greater than the 360.

Well, I can agree that alot of games for the PS3 is not that great graphically and story-wise. I can't get how you, as a game producer, can release such games. Well, it's also about how big budget you have, but anyway. Like Blacksite for example, I think that is one of...
 

God of War 3 is the Best Looking Game on Sony's PS3 to Date!

500°
288w ago - Apparently, the geniuses at Sony Santa Monica have done it again. The studio managed to create a God of War iteration that has made David Jaffe proud.

The studio released some pictures of the game recently and it looks phenomenal. However, the big question on everyone's mind is - does it play well?

God of War III (GOW3) may be one of the most anticipated games on the PS3. Sony revealed GOW3 during last E3 after much speculation that a next gen version was in the works. The fact that there was the God of War logo with a big number three on the back of the booklet for Chains of Olympus helped clue gamers in on this secret.

The guys over at Kotaku recently had the opportunity to watch GOW3 in action and they seem to be pretty excited about the game. One of the writers commented that GOW3 is more beautiful than any PS3 game to date.

Apparently, not only does the game look 'beautiful,' but the scale is enormous. According to the game director, Stig Asmussen, one of the levels from God of War on the PS2 could fit inside the palm of the titan's hand shown in the E3 trailer for GOW3.

The gameplay has also been revamped as well. Kratos can now switch weapons real-time on the fly. This means that while hacking away with the armblades, Kratos can now...
