131w ago - EA Community Manager Matthew Pruitt has shared a video announcing that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit hits PS3 today, and fans can play with the game's developers this weekend!
To quote: Need for Speed Hot Pursuit races onto the PlayStation 3 today asking the vital question: are you a racer or are you a cop?
That's the choice you'll make when you get behind the wheel and start tearing up the streets of Seacrest County.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit PlayStation 3 players will experience the thrill of the chase and the rush of the escape as they play through full careers as both a cop and a racer solo or connected. The blistering speeds, brutal busts and heart-stopping getaways are all connected via Need for Speed Autolog.
This network not only connects friends for epic head-to head pursuits and races, but also enables players to compare performances and stats, thereby setting the stage for the ultimate in friendly competition.
I can tell you from playing here in the office that Autolog will bring out the competition in you - even if you're not a competitive person.
Every day we're amazed at the new times people set on each of the events. You think...

131w ago - Relentless Software CG Supervisor Stewart Jones has unveiled their upcoming Blue Toad Murder Files (BTMF) Christmas Advent Calendar PS3 Theme today.
To quote: With the festive season and Blue Toad Murder Files first birthday approaching we wanted to have an extra 'Christmas Present' in the shape of a theme to hand out with our game. Please have a read to hear what we've done!
The idea of a Blue Toad Christmas Theme was discussed; we're all big fans of Christmas! As a result a brief was created in which we needed to take the village of Little Riddle and add some festive spirit to the design... Oh, and any reference to an advent calendar would be appreciated too!
We decided that the background should stay the same throughout; however, we wanted to use the iconic detective's magnifying glass to show a different image each day during December leading up to Christmas Eve.
Having the number of images in the theme limited to 24 which spookily coincides with the number of windows in a traditional advent calendar seemed like a good omen!
At first we had an actual advent calendar displayed over the whole screen, but in practice this obscured the XMB and no one could easily navigate the options... Fail!
