144w ago - Q-Games Ltd President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has confirmed that PixelJunk Shooter 2 hits PSN today with a new Online Battle Mode.
To quote: The sequel to the technically and critically acclaimed PixelJunk Shooter will be with us later today!
It continues where the original left off, leaving you trapped in the deep dark bowels of an enormous alien entity.
Fight through the backwash and encounter the weird and terrible monsters that are living in the alien's gut, force your way through putrid stomach acid and strange slippery bubbly stuff, and be totally grossed out by thousands of iddy-biddy insects that come pouring out of strange pulsating larvae when you mix water with it.
Yes, this is a game you probably want to avoid playing immediately after eating, and you might feel a little queasy the next time you are staring down Sparrow-on-a-stick (a Kyoto traditional cruisine).
But wait... PixelJunk Shooter 2 isn't all about dieting and worm control! It has vast new worlds to explore that aren't part of an organism's digestive track, and new technologies too, such as the Hungry Suit and the Light Suit and a whole load more.
Use the new R3 spin-attack to wipe out chains of enemies at a time and revel in the destructive mayhem...
145w ago - Sega of America's Assistant Community Manager Aaron Webber has shared a video announcing the Yakuza 4 PS3 demo is going live on PlayStation Network today.
To quote: That one guy from SEGA is back again, here to talk all things Yakuza 4, answer your questions in the comments, and remind you of one very important thing: The free Yakuza 4 demo is going live on PSN today!
If you've never played the Yakuza series before, I highly recommend you download the demo and give it a whirl. Today's demo is built around brawling, and in it you'll get to play as all four unique characters in the game.
Oh, and if you're glowing blue and you see the triangle button appear, make sure to press it - those are called HEAT actions, and they're both brutal and pretty amazing.
Also, hidden tip - we've equipped each character with a special weapon to use! Tap down on the d-pad to equip a weapon, and you'll find yourself armed with everything from nunchucks to spears to katanas. Kazuma Kiryu, the final character in the demo, also comes equipped with all three for you to try out.
If you own a PS3, you owe it to yourself to see why this series is exclusive to the console. And there's even more good news: following the great...

146w ago - Yesterday Sony addressed PS3 circumvention devices, piracy and PSN bans and today PS3 hackers SKFU among others via ArsTechnica have reported on potential security risks for PlayStation Network users.
To quote: While I read about the big ban tsunami and interesting papers like PSN.PDF (Mirror). I gone through a funny theory, I won't publish any details tho:
1) The bans are based on the users' account and console ID's.
2) We can modify all traffic sent and received by the PlayStation 3
What if some skiddies start to modify their sent traffic to appear as another user and use backups?
The PSN servers would recognize the TOS violation and check the online user database for known connections based on the ID's. The user and his consoles who really owns the ID's would be banned.
Even a simple Windows application which goes through ALL ID's may be possible. 24 hours and any console worldwide would be...
