Sony Confirms PlayStation Home Launch Soon, Maybe Next Week?

50°
293w ago - Jack Buser, the director of PlayStation Home has confirmed that the launch of PlayStation Home is imminent, although he would not get into the specific details of the exact date of release.

In related news, mainstream news site TimesOnline stated yesterday, "To try Home, which is slated for release in the next 10 days, players must download a piece of free software from Sony's PlayStation store onto their own PS3."

If accurate, this would put a PlayStation Home public release on track for the rumored December 17 date previously reported.

To quote: Amid rumors of a December launch for PlayStation Home, SCEA has confirmed to Joystiq that the social platform's public, open beta phase will arrive before the end of calendar year 2008, as we've been hearing for some time.

"We've been saying it will launch by the end of calendar year 2008," PlayStation Home director, Jack Buser, responded when asked about a December release. "And that's getting very, very close," he concluded, laughing.

"Launch is imminent," Buser confirmed - although neither he nor an SCEA rep were willing to divulge an exact day of...
 

Five PlayStation 3 RPG Games Being Worked On Internally at Sony

250°
293w ago - Shuhei Yoshida finally answers the burning question on many, many, many hardcore gamers minds... Where are the RPG's?!

In a poorly translated Japanese interview from a recent Famitsu magazine, a good soul who visits the site has been able to piece together 3 things for us:

1 - Sony is disappointed in their Japanese business model at the moment
2 - Sony is working on 3rd party relations
3 - Sony is developing 5 RPG's internally for their fanbase

While we already knew 2 of those things we, or at least I, didn't know the last one... I remember seeing an incredible looking series of screenshots from the now defunct Gamesblow's Web site in which he said were Legend of Dragoon 2... they were absolutely mind blowing for an RPG.

I can only hope one of these is in fact LOD2. We also know Dark Cloud 3 is being worked on... but the other 3 seem like a mystery to me.

A direct, not entirely accurate reading, of the snippet:

FM - A strong interest here in Japan is in role playing or deep strategy based games, why has Sony not played to these strengths with the PS3?

Shuhei Yoshida - The inception of a console is one of trial and error. It is never one set path one takes to success and success should never come from an easy path. When...

Sony, Please Fix the 80022d11 Error - PS3 Games are Unplayable!

50°
294w ago - Warning: Changing your PSN email or password via the PS3's XMB account management tool will corrupt your save files! Sadly, PlayStation 3 Firmware Update 2.53 does NOT resolve this issue.

There is a large thread (linked above) over at the PlayStation forums regarding error 80022d11 (save file created by another user).

Once this occurs, trying to load a save file for a game that supports trophies will give you the option to either start over (wipe the save file) or sync trophies (which fails). At this point trophies will no longer work and save game files for any game that supports trophies will no longer load.

The only work around at this point is to delete your PS3 user account (not to be confused with your PSN user account) and create a new one (which you can link to your existing PSN account).

Once this is done your trophies will sync, but you will lose all your saved games. If you try to restore any saved games you made before doing this, the error will occur again.

The problem appears to be triggered if the user changes his/her email address or password using the XMB account management tools. So until Sony fixes this problem, users should not change their...
 

Can Sony Maintain PlayStation 3's Momentum in 2009?

50°
294w ago - If we look back on 2008 and start ticking off the top names of 2009, one will want to assume that the PlayStation 3 has the momentum.

Not only does it have the obvious exclusive edge over Microsoft's Xbox 360, but it has several other factors going for it.

It's $200 cheaper than it was upon launch two years ago, the launch of the PlayStation Home open beta is scheduled for this month, Blu-Ray has won the HD movie war (and it's certainly the more preferable software format for games), the PlayStation Network and Store have taken gigantic strides, the machine is far more reliable than the 360, and yes, as we just said, the exclusives have really been impressive.

We saw Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Resistance 2, Wipeout HD, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation, Valkyria Chronicles, and LittleBigPlanet this year and we can expect Killzone 2, God of War III, Gran Turismo 5, the recently unveiled Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Heavy Rain in 2009, along with Final Fantasy Versus XIII at some point.

Sales are up, Network subscriptions are up, and finally, most third-party developers have gotten over their initial PS3 hang-ups that saw many poor 360-to-PS3 ports. Hence, we'd like to clearly conclude that the PS3 has snagged the momentum away from the competition at this...
