220w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has revealed the contents of Qore Episode 17 today, which features Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, EyePet, Blur and Borderlands.
To quote: With the return of Ratchet & Clank later this month, the October episode of Qore features a loveable Lombax, a precious pet, reckless racing and wasteland wanderers.
Is Ratchet truly the last Lombax in this universe? Can he locate and rescue his buddy Clank? The storyline that began in 2007's Tools of Destruction reaches an epic conclusion in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. Veronica Belmont visits Insomniac Games to step into Ratchet's shoes... err... actually, his gravity boots.
At this year's E3, SCEA impressed the audience with a demonstration of the upcoming PS3 motion controller, but there is yet another innovation on the way: the EyePet! Audrey Cleo meets her new virtual pal and demonstrates how PS3 technology could change the way we interact with games in the future.
Bizarre Creations is returning to its roots to rev up the racing genre with imaginative power-ups, weapons, and a distinctive multiplayer component. We take BLUR for a test drive to see what sets it apart from the crowd.

To quote: At PAX, we scored some time with James Stevenson, Community Manager at Insomniac Games who was kind enough to walk us through some brand new Axiom City gameplay in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time.
Specifically, James gives us the lowdown on a heap of weapons – including the all-powerful (and deceivingly small) Rift Inducer – and what they can do.

227w ago - Bethesda's Pete Hines has clarified Internet speculation about the future of the Elder Scrolls franchise.
Hines has said that Bethesda' producer Todd Howard was misquoted at QuakeCon last week, when he refused to give any details on a possible fifth title in the series, leading some to assume a new single-player game was not in development.
To quote: "Of course, we're going to do another Elder Scrolls game. The last one was enormously popular," wrote Hines on the publisher's official blog.
"Todd and Bethesda Game Studios are hard at work on their next big game, and we're not ready to discuss it. As always, we prefer to have something amazing to show when we talk about it.
We aren't going to confirm or deny or comment on speculation, nor are we going to give hints about anything. If you know us by now, you know we don't really do that," he added.
227w ago - Future Publishing has confirmed that it is closing PSW Magazine due to decreasing demand.
The company now plans to focus their efforts on the official PlayStation Magazine and PSM3.
To quote: "It's always incredibly sad when we close a title as established as PSW, but the decision was taken in response to decreasing demand," games portfolio publishing director James Binns explained.
"By focusing our efforts on Official PlayStation Magazine and a single independent PlayStation title in PSM3, we can strengthen our position in delivering the number one and number two print titles in the sector.
"We continue to invest in our traditional print brands, but games is a rapidly changing sector, so our portfolio needs to constantly evolve to meet the needs of consumers in a vibrant and diverse market."
