Even Better 'Dump Your Old Electronics' Trade-up Program

100°
309w ago - Expanding on the previously published Radio Shack trade-in program, Best Buy offers a similar program, albeit online only (linked above, you can't bring your old stuff to a retail location).

Box up your stuff and send it with their postage, get it approved, and receive back a Best Buy gift card. I dumped a working 1st gen touch wheel 20GB iPod for ~$40.

I also dumped an old cell phone for ~$20 Decision... recycle at municipal collection for nothing or let Best Buy recycle it and pay me for it?

A working 40GB PS3 with one controller and all connections gets you $102. Hey, that's better than $23 from RadioShack, right?

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Arrives Tomorrow, DLC Lined Up

50°
309w ago - MotorStorm: Pacific Rift's Game Director Nigel Kershaw shared the following today via PS Blog:

Its launch day for MotorStorm: Pacific Rift in North America tomorrow (w00t)!

It means you all can enjoy MotorStorm Pacific Rift and we can all go on holiday. Except by this point, the UK is accelerating into winter in typical rainy, cold fashion.

So it's the Southern Hemisphere for the sun worshippers amongst the team, and a catching-up on a big pile of games in a darkened room for us redheads that find the sun overrated.





Once were all rested its back to the development bunker to finish off the DLC we have lined up for you guys in the coming months. We've got a pile of stuff waiting in the wings, and, you'll be glad to know, a lot of it is free. We're going to try and give you something new to play with every week, and we've also got some major packs in development that should be on the store after Christmas.

In the meantime, get those Time Trial lap times up on the leaderboards (you're lucky as I've put a moratorium on our QA guys posting up there for two weeks, to let you guys get good at it), have a laugh with split screen, and enjoy this next bout of brutal off-road racing.

Laters!

Svensson: Trophy Support Planned for Future Capcom PS3 Titles

50°
309w ago - Capcom's Christian Svensson has stated that PlayStatiopn 3 trophies are unlikely to be added to current games released due to the cost.

However, according to him Capcom is planning trophy support for future titles.

To quote Sven: There are a few titles released by our US group that we'd like to go back and have trophy support added to, but the bids to do so were cost prohibitive (they'd never make it through a green light process if those costs stand). We've not entirely given up yet though, so you may still see something further down the line.

Because there's some uncertainty, I don't want to say whether you will or won't on what's on that list.

I will say that future titles are planning trophy support across the board on our US developed side and I believe the majority of our Japanese titles are also (I'm just hesitant to commit because I don't have a complete list in front of me).
