246w ago - Recently, through reconstructing the PS3 HDD, sonyk has added some new details to the PS3 HDD Map we posted early last year.
Normally the infoboard files reside in the flash, and although it's still missing the subdirecties of user (as well as data, drm, mms, and vsh), those interested can check out the partial user directory available below:
248w ago - Incognito Studio Director Dylan Jobe unveiled a massive update to MyHawk.org, a Warhawk PS3 Online Community Site as follows today:
Sugaboo's Web site MyHawk.org has been operational for quite some time now and he's just rolled-out a massive update!
Clan Matches & Tournaments, Daily Leader Boards, New graphs, Per-weapon stats, Stats on individual games, Game Calendar and more!
Below is just one example of a player stats page with game calendar.
Based on feedback from our player community, there was always a set of very highly requested community features that Warhawk didn't support "out-of-the-box".
These requests weren't forgotten!!! We were just thinking of the best and most extensible way to roll them out. And since they're community features, it was *critical* for us to develop a solution that would allow all of you guys, our players from around the world, to customize and enhance the Warhawk community for years to come.
We think of it as the democratization of our player community - and yes, it's global so it's not just for American players!
So... I'm not going to spew too much technical schwag at all of you but suffice to say, we now provide you guys with the full, and raw...
277w ago - Update: Based on feedback received we wanted to clarify that HDR did not shoot these videos or have any part in their creation. They were sent to us anonymously out of the blue and are hosted at Photo Bucket, a popular file sharing website.
That said, Home is coming along nicely and we keep our fingers crossed its availability for everyone will be sooner rather than later. If you've applied for the next round of Beta testers, good luck!
We have a special treat for you this morning thanks to a generous anonymous tipster who put a lot of effort into what you're about to see.
The following videos were taken from the original Playstation Home Beta and the just-updated expansion. The newer videos are towards the top, including the trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as watched in the Home movie theater.
It should be noted that each "area" of Home such as the movie theater, game room and so on must be downloaded separately when entering them for the first time. At approximately 50MB per area this could take a serious chunk out of one's hard drive.
With any luck we'll have some more first-look Home footage to share in the near future. Until then, enjoy the whopping 17 videos of Playstation 3's Home Beta in action.
292w ago - Rarely have we seen a game that made us want to throw up in a good way. Watching director Jason Avent preload up a gravel-laden peak and launch off amidst gondolas and hot air balloons in the cloudy New Mexico sky was all at once mesmerizing and lunch rejecting.
The soundtrack mutes, the trash-talking rider Supermans his body while barely grasping the seat. Quickly, he plummets down to earth. Jason's trajectory is off and the rider crotches himself on the seat before painfully smashing into a boulder.
Such is the life in Pure, a more-than-basic ATV racer with shades of SSX. If our new screens are any indication, Pure will speed away from the pack of other drab racers.
We already got a good look at Pure's racing dynamics earlier, but today we were able to get a clearer sense of how the trick system worked. On your HUD, the system is represented by the Y, B and A buttons for high, middle and low level tricks respectively.
Tricks and boost are essential to winning races - hence our SSX comparison - and strategizing when to use each will dictate your chance of victory.
You build up boost by performing low level tricks - or the A button tricks. Successfully pulling off one of these can start to build up your mid-level boost, to perform B button tricks and so...
