222w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition along with support for PS3 Trophies.
To quote: I know the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has been out for about a year now, but with the recent addition of PSN Trophies to the title and a new version of the game hitting soon (Ultimate Sith Edition), I figured there'd be plenty of you giving the game a first (or second) look.
Also, LucasArts' Presidio campus is pretty much the coolest workplace location on the planet, so we had no problem coming back :-)
So after Chris was done taking a look at Star Wars Battlefront Elite Squadron for PSP, Assistant Production Manager Cameron Suey popped the updated Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition into the PS3.
This version packs a couple of interesting "What if?" levels onto the original game, as well as some new trophies to boot (eagle eyes will catch our demo dude unlocking one late in the video).
222w ago - During today's Star Wars: The Old Republic panel at PAX 09, BioWare showed Kotaku (linked above) the first glimpse of the Republic's Trooper class in action.
To quote: "Not only do we have footage of the Trooper, which is The Old Republic's version of the Clone and eventual Storm, Sand, Snow, and Marshmallow Troopers, but we captured a little bit of Sith Warrior gameplay as well, in case you are more of a Dark Side of the Force kind of person.
Sorry about the quality, but this was taken off a screen and you get what you pay for."
