276w ago - Sierra Entertainment today announced that Red Baron Arcade, a World War I based air combat game originally seen on PC, will hit the PlayStation Network later next month on September 18.
In addition to an expansive single-player campaign sprawling 36 missions, the game's online multiplayer aspect features three gameplay modes in all – Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag – each with support for up to eight players.
Sounds great, but seeing as the original received fairly mediocre reviews across the board, it'd be wise to try this one before buying.
Thankfully, a playable demo will be available on release day.
276w ago - The PSN is currently down. We have just got word that on 08.26.08 (tomorrow) between 8:00-13:00 PDT the PlayStation Network will be down.
We are skeptical, but this "Scheduled Maintenance" may be pertaining to the Home Extended Beta, or possibly even Life with PlayStation. This latest rumor would add up with the rumor we have previously reported. Only time can tell what is to come.
Also, the Metal Gear Online site has posted an update stating:
PSN Maintenance 26.08.2008
Maintenance will be undertaken on the "PLAYSTATION(R) NETWORK" between August 26th 16:00-21:00 (BST). During these times, customers may be momentarily unable to connect to the PLAYSTATION(R) Network. Please try after some time should this happen.
277w ago - Now here's a mouthful, the latest exclusive PSN game for the PS3 is - Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars.
Wow, that's a long title. Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars by Psyonix Studios will strike PSN in early fall 2008. SAR-PB-C is "an arena-based online vehicle sports game" that's inspired by the game of soccer (football for the rest of the world).
The game will feature extensive stats tracking, ranking and rewards. However, more exciting is the announcement of popular features, like Trophy support and the ability to record gameplay directly to YouTube. It's great to see third party developers starting to take advantage of the various capabilities of the PS3.
