I want to set the record straight because I'm not one to hide from anything. We will NOT, I repeat, NOT be charging for extra animals in FLOCK!

Yes, the game will be complete with all the sheep, roosters, pigs and cows you can herd to your heart's desire.

So the wait is over. FLOCK! finally lands on PSN today. Here's what you can expect:





• Over 50 levels of intense flocking action!

• Commenters complaining about said price point!
• Gamers purchasing FLOCK and exclaiming that it's totally worth it!
• More harassment about trophy support for previously released games!

• Many more surprises and prizes!

I want to congratulate last week's contest...

Sony's PlayStation 3 Outsells the Nintendo Wii in Japan

200°
298w ago - Sony's PlayStation 3 has outsold Nintendo's Wii console in Japan for the first time in 16 months.

To quote: Last month, Sony shifted 146,948 units of the PS3 compared to 99,335 Wiis, reported publishing firm Enterbrain.

While some suggest it could signal the end of Nintendo's dominance, others think it is unlikely that the PS3 will threaten the Wii's popularity globally.

Meanwhile, Nintendo's revamped DSi console sold 92,000 units in the UK during its first weekend of sales. It makes it the fourth biggest ever console launch.

Experts see the dominance of the PS3 during March as a temporary blip rather than a sign of Nintendo's decline.

Microsoft however only shifted 43,172 units of its Xbox 360 during the same period. Games such as Resident Evil 5 and the latest version of action adventure Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 are credited with driving demand for the PS3 in Japan.

But Wii sales remain extremely buoyant. During March global sales of Nintendo's Wii console passed 50 million, making the Wii the fastest-selling games console in history, surpassing the PlayStation 2.

"PS3 hardware sales picked up due to brisk-selling software. But I don't see any drastic change in the industry landscape," Okasan Securities analyst Masashi Morita told the AFP news...
 

PlayTV Patch 1.10 for Sony's PlayStation 3 is Now Available

250°
298w ago - A new patch for PlayTV on the PS3 has been released, with one of the major changes being that it now does automatic upscaling from SD to HD.

A couple of other small changes such as being able to jump directly into the TV mode From The XMB are also included. Additionally, Eastern Europeans can rejoice as it seems the MPEG 4 decoding issue has been resolved!

To quote: A patch for the PlayStation 3 European digital TV add-on, PlayTV, has now been released bringing it to version 1.10. The patch was announced a few days ago but I thought I'd wait until it was actually out in the open before writing anything about it.

The key change in this update is the addition of automatic upscaling from Standard Definition (SD) broadcasts to High Definition (HD). HD is the big thing now y'hear, so this is a good thing!

A few sound enhancement have been made too, such as volume control with the Official PS3 Blu-ray remote and audio normalisation (similar to the feature added to music playback in firmware 2.70).

You can now also jump directly into TV mode from the XMB, so you don't need the hassle of going through the PlayTV menus beforehand. In terms of playback, other than the sound changes, the only other change is slightly better rewind and fastforword handling, with new speeds...
 

Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! is Coming to Sony's PSP

250°
298w ago - Today PR/Marketing Coordinator Nao Zook of NIS America, Inc. shared the following news via PlayStation Blog:

Hello everyone, my name is Nao Zook from [Register or Login to view links]. Today, we are very excited to announce our upcoming PSP title!

It's called "Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This?" Now, I know the title is super long. In fact, it just might be the longest, and craziest, title in videogame history! But actually, we at NISA are pretty happy with this name.

So anyway, you must be wondering what this game is all about.

"Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!" is a strategy game with an RPG feel to it. You play as the God of Destruction, and you must save Badman, the underground overlord from various heroes. Badman is helpless and whiny, but once in a while he finds the cajones to question your actions. Sounds like Badman is a real pain in the butt, huh? But he's also got some hilarious lines, so we're sure you'll have fun with him.

Now, in the actual game you appear as a pickaxe. Okay, we know, it's just a pickaxe. But you're the friggin' God of Destruction! It's your duty to crush all these pesky heroes invading YOUR underground turf! In order to defeat them, you just dig and dig and...
