Rumor: Best Buy Listing Indicates PS3 to Go 3D in July 2010

550°
213w ago - Last week reports surfaced that the upcoming PS3 3D Firmware update would arrive in June, and today retailer Best Buy has let slip the date of July.

Sony has previously confirmed that a simple PS3 Firmware update is all that is required to make the PlayStation 3 system compatible with 3D gaming.

Unfortunately, no specific timeframe was ever given for the anticipated patch until today.

To quote: "On a 3D FAQ page, Best Buy has given the first solid timeframe for the PS3 3D patch.

Clicking on the first tab of this page will reveal the following tidbit:

To watch 3D Blu-ray Discs, you'll need to add a 3D-ready Blu-ray player (or update your PS3 with the appropriate firmware when it becomes available in July).

Yup, that's right. Best Buy seems to have let the cat slip a bit early; either mistakenly or intentionally."

Flower Wins VGAs Best Independent PS3 Game

50°
226w ago - Today Kellee Santiago, President and co-founder of ThatGameCompany, has made a post-VGA announcement on Flower winning the VGAs Best Independent PS3 Game award.

To quote: This last weekend was... whoa, just totally surreal. Jenova, composer Vincent Diamante, and I met up at the event, where we got together with fellow indie nominees, Hemisphere Games (Osmos) and Twisted Pixel ('Splosion Man) so that we could brave the great unknown of the red carpet together.

Which turned out to be a good thing because it was pretty hectic and intense there. Did you know going down a red carpet can take an hour?!? I don't know how seasoned veterans like David Jaffe can do it!

These Mt. Dew-themed drinks helped us get through the pre-show schmooze-fest, though. It was great to be surrounded by almost all of the other Best Indie Game nominees - I definitely felt more grounded. I mean, how do you handle waiting in line for the port-o-potty and encountering Samuel L. Jackson?

And then there were the REAL celebrities - Rocksteady,...
 

Uncharted 2 for PS3 Dubbed GamesCom's Best Console Game!

50°
242w ago - Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has announced today that Uncharted 2 for PS3 was dubbed GamesCom's best console game.

To quote: Just last week, one of our Senior Character Artists, Hanno, and I hopped on a plane to head over to Cologne, Germany, to work at Europe's biggest videogames show, Gamescom. It turns out that we absolutely had no idea what we were getting ourselves into.

This was the first European show for Hanno and myself, as we had never been to the Leipzig Games Convention in the previous years. We weren't prepared at all on how huge gamescom was - not only in importance, but in sheer physical size.

There were four different halls at the Koelnmesse where games were being shown and EACH hall was about the same size of an airplane hangar. The PlayStation booth was probably one of the biggest booths we've ever seen and was split into four main sections representing racing games, family games, social entertainment and an 18+ area.

We were looking forward to going to Germany since we were hand-carrying over something really special with us - a fresh set of Blu-ray disks that would allow anyone at gamescom to have the first hands-on gameplay ever with the single player campaign of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves!
