Resistance 2 Demo Coming on Sony PlayStation Day!

50°
346w ago - An Insomniac Games employee, jstevenson, has written in the NeoGAF boards and confirmed that a Resistance 2 demo will be present during the Sony PlayStation day on May 6, a few days from now.

It is likely that impressions will leak out of the press-only event, and we'll make sure to post them when they appear.

To quote: We pull ourselves away from Grand Theft Auto IV long enough to record this 25th episode of the Full Moon Show. We bring you the latest info on Resistance 2 and our demo in Europe next week.

We also reveal more about our 8-player online co-op in our I Want Your Job interview with Jake Biegel. Former 1UP Network Editorial Director Dan "Shoe" Hsu joins us in the mystery guest segment, and we'll bring you the latest contest from Marcus. Plus Rolf's Rant and more!
 

ESRB Rates Possible PS1 Titles For PSN

100°
346w ago - For fans of the original PS1, Sony really hasn't been adding classics to the PlayStation Store at a fast enough pace. There have been a few, of course, but there are many more PS1 greats that should eventually find their way to the Store (for play on both the PS3 and PSP).

Well, according to a PS3Fanboy reader, it seems the ESRB has rated several fantastic PS1 titles that have yet to arrive on the Store. Well, we have to assume that if the ESRB is rating these games again, they're being prepped for another release... It's only common sense. Here's the list:

* Wipeout XL (E-Everyone)
* Jet Moto 3 (E-Everyone)
* Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo (E-Everyone)
* Buster Bros. Collection (E-Everyone)
* Street Fighter Alpha (T-Teen)
* Rayman (E-Everyone)
* Castlevania Chronicles (T-Teen)

Unfortunately, we have no idea when these classics might hit the Store, but we're assuming SCEA will make the announcements some time soon. With the likes of the original Rayman, Castlevania: Chronicles and the fantastic Wipeout XL (one of the best titles ever, in our estimation), this would be great news indeed.

European PSN Store update for May 1, 2008

50°
346w ago - So far since the launch of the new PS Store, European has seen it's fair share of good quality updates. Certainly, the situation appears to be much better than before and SCEE seem to be coming good on their promise that they would 'sort the situation out' by the Summer.

It would be a shame, therefore, to see a lacklustre update this week, wouldn't it?

Here's the full list of available items:

Games:

Ape Quest (£8.99)

Add-ons:

Need for Speed Pro Street - Bugatti Veyron (£1.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Mclaren F1 (£1.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Premium Car Pack (£3.49)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Premium Car Pack 2 (£3.49)
Snakeball - Team Mode Pack (£1.99)
Kane & Lynch - Fragile Alliance Maps (free)

Demos (all free):

Ape Quest Starter Pack

Videos (all free):

Ironman movie trailer

Wallpapers and Themes (all free):

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Theme
Dark Sector Theme
Haze Theme
Haze Wallpaper

Obviously, anyone still playing Kane & Lynch can't complain about the value for money the extra map pack represents, but the big news of the week has to be Ape Quest.

Including the instantly recognisable characters...
