Killzone 2 Servers Are Now Live for PlayStation 3 Gamers

400°
283w ago - When I looked at my friend list on the PSN I was shocked! There were already playing 14 out of the 18 (who were online at the PSN) Killzone 2.

That is very impressive because the game will released the day after tomorrow. Also, there are already 14,300 players who played the Killzone 2 multiplayer for PS3!

How about you friends? How many people play the game with you?

I have to wait because I have the game ordered from an English shop, but until that time I have fun with Resistance 2!
 

Sony is Working Harder for Gamers Than Microsoft and Nintendo

250°
287w ago - We all know who is winning the console war, but who is putting more effort into their gaming division? We break down the basics in each company's work efforts, and showed what each company has to deal with in the gaming industry.

Advertising:
Everyone knows that Microsoft is doing an excellent job with their advertising campaign. You see their advertisements all over national television, stores, and even in some cases on Mountain Dew (Halo 3). Nintendo does not advertise to quite the extent of Microsoft, but that there really is no need for it.

The Wii already has ridiculous sales and there is no need for Nintendo to waste their money on marketing. Everyone already knows what the Wii is about and putting commercials everywhere would be useless. And then comes Sony.

We all know that Sony is not on the ball with their marketing but I feel we will begin to see changes this year. We have already seen them advertise to the max with the Winter X-Games and I look for it to continue. Especially with titles like Killzone 2, God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, Heavy Rain, and much more expected this year.

Microsoft:
Microsoft currently only has to deal with one platform, the Xbox 360. With one console, they have to work on games for that console as well as bring out...
 

Stupidity of the Console War: Did Gamers Lose Their Hearts?

100°
289w ago - While browsing YouTube I found this video. The person I saw on it (Bluty3000) was someone who I use to watch on my old account. So I decided to check his video out Labeled "Console War".

In his video he pretty much sums up how I feel about the console war as well.

He calls anyone who takes the console war so seriously that they act like a console is their child, is annoying and should take a good look at them selves.

Below are the videos, be warned however a portion of the content is mature and some users may be offended by it.








 

Chinese Gamers Will Have to Give Real Names to Play Online?

50°
289w ago - According to China Daily, China is to start requiring gamers to register for online games with their real names!

It isn't confirmed when this new policy will go live, but it sounds pretty drastic if it is indeed true.

To quote: The government will start real-name registration for online game players this year, said Zhang Yijun, director of the General Administration of Press and Publication's technology and digital publication department.

Four online game companies' operations have been suspended after it was found that their software did not have the mandatory anti-addiction system, he said in Qingdao on Wednesday.
 

Sony Chart Reminds Gamers of the PlayStation 3's Offerings

100°
289w ago - An external SCEA PR rep has told Edge-Online why a chart (below) was released by Sony indicating that the PS3 was cheaper than Microsoft's XBox 360 and Nintendo's Wii console.

The rep noted that it was thought to be a good time to remind everyone of "our strong offerings".

To quote: An external SCEA PR rep From The agency Porter Novelli told us the company released the chart because they "thought it would be a good time just to remind everyone of our strong offerings," which automatically implies that they feel people have either forgotten about the PS3's inherent value or never seriously considered the PS3's value, due to the higher price tag.

It's highly likely that amidst this PS3 price-drop rumoring that Sony wanted to tell the core audience, "Hey, don't wait for a drop, it's a steal at $399, honest."

I'd argue that today PS3 is a fine value, on par with Xbox 360, particularly for gamers in 2009, when it appears that Sony's internal developers will really begin to bear fruit.

Nevertheless, I'm glad I'm not the one that has to figure out how to get that value message across to consumers.
