EA to Re-Release Burnout Paradise as Downloadable PSN Title

50°
311w ago - Publisher Electronic Arts announced today that it is re-releasing Criterion Games' critically acclaimed racing title Burnout Paradise as a downloadable on the PlayStation Network. Due out later this fall, the digital version will cost $29.99, incorporating all of the recent updates into one single package.

Interesting decision, to say the least. We've seen dual Blu-ray and PSN releases in the past – Gran Turismo 5: Prologue for instance – but as far as I know, this is the first PS3 title released specifically on Blu-ray format to make its way over to PSN at a later date.

Confirmed: Street Fighter Alpha is PSN Bound

50°
311w ago - Capcom is making up, or attempting to at least, for the lack of a Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix BETA on PlayStation 3.

According to the company's senior product manager on all things Street Fighter, this Thursday will see the release of PSOne classic Street Fighter Alpha: Warrior's Dreams on PSN.

As with all previously released PSOne classics, it'll of course be playable on both your PS3 and PSP. No word on pricing, but if history is any indication, $6 is a safe bet.

To quote: Hey all - I recently joined (4 months ago) Capcom's Marketing team as the Senior Product Marketing Manager on Street Fighter IV, so my life is consumed with all things having to do with this awesome franchise (yah, my life sucks).

Before I go on about this "big surprise" John D. mentioned....A bit of self deprecation. I'm an avid gamer (I lined up quarters for SFII and it's sequels) - I promise that I'm no marketing schmuck. I started as a tester for Sega (poor Sega Saturn!) and then Sony, finally ending up in marketing (8 years worth). So I like to think I know something about gaming and marketing (but I probably don't).

Anyway, what's the surprise? The surprise isn't that SFIV is on it's way (duh!)... and that it looks and plays sooo good. I went to the secret Fight Club...
 

Braid May Hit PSN, Space Limitations Prevent WiiWare Release

50°
311w ago - With all the talk about how great Jonathan Blow's time-bending puzzle platformer Braid is, we can imagine that PlayStation 3 owners are feeling a little jealous.

Good news, though. According to Blow himself, the title was released on XBLA through a timed exclusivity agreement with Microsoft and as such, a PSN release is indeed possible after the period of exclusivity ends.

Furthermore, on the question of if Braid will come to Nintendo's WiiWare download service, Blow stated that a WiiWare version is out of the question, citing a lack of internal storage as the reasoning behind why.
 

PSN helps find stolen PS3, Unwanted Xbox 360 the replacement

50°
311w ago - The fiance of Dustin Waller bought him a second hand PS3 from a store in Cleveland, but little did she know it was infact a stolen system. However, the police were able to track the system whenever Waller turned on the system as the original owner of the PS3's PSN ID was still stored on the system. The police confiscated the system and Waller was compensated by the store with an unwanted Xbox 360.

To quote: Police appeared on Waller's door after the purchase, and they inquired as to how he had come across the system. According to the Salisbury Post, the police were able to track the system whenever Waller turned on his system.

The original owner of the PS3's PSN ID was still stored on the system, and it was set to auto-login when the system turned on. By tracking Waller's IP address, they were able to find him.

Waller is of course innocent in the whole debacle, but police confiscated his system nonetheless. While the police look for the person who sold the stolen system to the games shop, Waller was given compensation from the store he didn't want: an Xbox 360.

"Waller is appreciative of the offer from the store but notes the Xbox isn't nearly as expensive or sophisticated as the PlayStation."
