Warhammer Online's Cut Content Will be Added for Free Later

50°
318w ago - Fans of massively multiplayer games who were looking forward to Warhammer Online were understandably shaken this summer when it was announced that some major features were being pulled from the game.

However, those worried fans can now take heart. Speaking to 1UP earlier today about this week's public launch of their new game, Mythic Entertainment general manager Mark Jacobs assured us that the cut content that does find its way back into Warhammer Online will be reintroduced free of charge -- not as part of a paid expansion.

"Are we going to put [the pulled content] in a paid expansion? No," Jacobs explained. "What I've told the users point blank is that we want to give it to you as part of subscription content. We don't have a schedule penciled in for when that will be coming, but we're going to release it without any additional charge to players."

The cuts, announced in July to help keep the game on track for a fall release as well as sharpen up the content that is in the shipping version, included four of the six planned capital cities and four classes. Jacobs told us that though four cities were pulled from the game for the time being, they took the content that had been spread out in those cities and poured it back into the remaining two capitals. "We didn't cut one-third the...

Sony to Launch Online Content Management Service in Japan

50°
319w ago - Sony of Japan has revealed a new service called Life-X which enables users to manage their own private digital content such as photos and videos though a Web browser. The service is set to start in October 2008.

"Toward our goal to make 90% of Sony's products support network function, the service will help increase the added-value and convenience of Sony's products," said Nobuki Kurita, executive deputy president of Sony Marketing.

To quote: The service is slated to start in mid October 2008. Ahead of that, the company will disclose the beta version and allow 500 pre-registered users selected in a drawing to try it from Sept 25, 2008, the company said.

As the aims of introducing Life-X, Sony Marketing cited the following reasons: (1) to enable users to manage their private content on the Internet and (2) to allow them enjoy sharing the content they are managing.

Life-X can manage photos, videos, blogs, text memos and web clip content. Each user is allowed to manage up to 500 Mbytes of photos. It can also manage content on other Web services than Life-X. Flickr, YouTube, Twitter and some other Web services run by other companies will be linked to Life-X when it is started.

Life-X allows users to share their content with other users as well. For example, "By...
 

PAIN Patch Adds Trophies and Game Content, if you Pay for it!

50°
319w ago - The long-awaited PAIN trophy patch is now available to download. Simply load up the game and you will be prompted to download the 325MB patch. Don't forget, PAIN's trophies have been retooled, to make them a bit easier than originally intended. The patch also adds a bunch of content to the game -- but only if you pay for it.

Three new characters are available to purchase, along with the new "Abusement Park" (though none of these are available on any region's PSN Store as of yet). There are also new game modes which, we assume, come with the Amusement Park expansion.

There is one free addition to the feature roster, however. Each week a new mini-level will be made available. Each of these "PAINlabs" will be an experimental concept that Idol Minds are playing with and are releasing for you, the players, to test out.

An interesting idea -- and best of all? It's free. Though, having said that, we doubt anyone would pay any money for these, judging from the first one.
