170w ago - In what may be the most lame video thus far, YouTube user vakalokass has shared one of a Hello World for Sony's PS3 entertainment system today.
Why is it considered lame exactly? Well, for starters the PS3 has been hacked and running code that Sony doesn't approve of for a few weeks now via PS JailBreak- including full PlayStation 3 game backups.
175w ago - Here is one from the rumormill, blackxino (linked above) has shared a leaked image of what is purported to be the first hint that Dead or Alive 5 is coming to Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
Pictured below, the alleged DOA5 main game menu image contains an 'X' and 'O' button indicating that it is playable on the PlayStation 3 console.
However, Dead or Alive 4 was exclusive to Microsoft's Xbox 360 so needless to say until Tecmo and Team Ninja confirm this it is purely speculation at the present time.
To quote: "Look at Image! PS3 controller buttons. I just obtained this leaked image, that is all. :P Don't ask me how I got it, let's just say through the hard work on this idea site.
Too bad I'm not a journalist so therefore I can't contact Tecmo Koei about this. If you are a journalist, do me (us readers) a favor and get in touch with PR of TK-A/TKE about this image.
The main thing is if Tecmo Koei sees the hit about this, they would consider announcing DOA 5 at Tokyo Game Show 2010 because people seem to be interested in DOA 5 even after it's long absence for 4 years."
179w ago - This weekend ConsolePress.com (linked above) and GamingEverything.com have posted up some new scans leaked from the latest Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) Magazine of the upcoming PS3 and XBox 360 Mortal Kombat 2011 title by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment.
EGM was able to do an extensive interview with the team behind the new title, and according to the developers the game will return to its "2D roots".
The 3D sidestepping has been removed, as the game is once again restricted to a 2D plane of movement. It was also hinted that it will be the fastest game in the series.
In addition, a new Super Meter was added as shown. It can be charged to 3 levels used to either enhance a special move, break a combo or unleash the new devastating attack called "X-Ray Mode".
During this attack, characters engage in a combo that takes around 40% damage (depending on the character) and can also be chained in another combo. During these devastating attacks, the opponent's internal damage is shown with each character has different organ models.
179w ago - This weekend Paul Thurrott at WinSuperSite.com reports that the first Windows 8 details have been leaked by Microsoft's PC maker partners.
Below is a brief rundown the new Windows 8 details, with more details linked above for those interested.
Think iPhone App store or Android Marketplace but with a Microsoft twist. Rumored to be named Windows Store. I'm curious if this is cross platform with Windows Phone 7, and maybe 360 support?
Internet Explorer 9
Included with Windows 7 will be Microsoft's next generation browser. After looking thru the new tech demos for IE 9 I admit I'm not really excited for this. It still feels like they are playing catch up with Firefox and Chrome.
A leaked release date of August 2010 was seen. However browsers are personal, try the demo here.
Windows Live Wave 5
The only real details are it will ship with Windows 8. The Windows Live Wave 4 beta is available now, SYNC is a big improvement. Try it here.
183w ago - Today GamesRadar.com (linked above) has uncovered two purportedly leaked viral video trailers from YouTube user SCElabs, which may be intended for Sony's PS4 and hint at a PlayStation 4 E3 2010 reveal!
Of course, this news comes despite Sony previously citing the PS3 will have a ten year lifespan and Sony CEO Jack Trettonstating PS4 will arrive only when technology exceeds the PS3 entertainment system.
Kotaku reports that the viral videos appear to be promoting Modern Warfare 2 going 3D on the PS3 despite the PS4 logo.
To date, there have been countless PS4 rumors (like this one and this one) so feel free to share your comments below if you feel these videos are legit or just part of a viral marketing campaign.
