166w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a Qore Episode 29 preview video today highlighting Gran Turismo 5, Medal of Honor, Castlevania and Qore's road trip to Tokyo.
To quote: With less than a month to go, the team is counting down to the release of Gran Turismo 5 with a beautiful lead feature on this technical and gaming masterpiece.
Audrey Cleo catches up with the US-based producers to understand what it takes to create the world's greatest driving simulator. You'll want to watch this story several times to experience the jaw-dropping realism in full HD.
Another huge title is also featured in this episode: EA's Medal of Honor, which advances the timeframe from WWII to the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan. Veronica Belmont spoke with MoH Executive Producer Greg Goodrich about the extensive research that went into the title to pay tribute to the US military Tier One Operators.
Konami's rebootin' Castlevania, providing a fresh start to one of gaming's most storied franchises.

195w ago - Today PR and Marketing Manager Andrej Dula of the Czech Republic and Slovakia has shared some pictures of Kratos on the road over European highways.
To quote: If, in the coming weeks, you see drivers with wide open eyes on the European highways, there are two likely explanations:
Either Europe was hit with (another!) severe snowstorm and spring is nowhere in sight, or they have just seen Kratos, the one and only God of War cruising on the road using his massive truck!
PlayStation Czech Republic and Slovakia is paying a tribute to this great franchise which is breaking review scores highs and sales records with an epic God of War III truck. Branded from both sides, it projects a 3D image of Kratos literally jumping out of the truck and into the traffic.
It would be a shame to keep it only to Czech Republic and Slovakia so through a cooperation with a Slovak truck company, the truck will be hitting the roads of mainland Europe until the end of summer, visiting also Austria, Netherlands, Croatia, Ukraine, Poland and Hungary so keep your eyes open for the one and only God of War!

Aaron Luke here to bring you the next chapter in our series of MLB 10: The Show posts. This installment will focus on the enhancements we've made to "Road To The Show" (RTTS). We've targeted several aspects of the mode for improvements, and think you'll like what you find in this year's edition of RTTS.
We'll begin by discussing player creation. This year's PS3 Create Player system has received some new accessory additions, giving you even more options to customize. You can now select a variety of color settings to nearly every part of your player's gear.
Among many other options, you can customize three areas of your glove with different colors, set both the barrel and handle colors of your bat, and customize your shoe colors. We've also added a field to the General tab that will allow you to determine whether or not your player was born in the U.S. This will determine which roster you would appear on if your player were to be selected for the All-Star Futures Game.
After finishing up your player's look and deciding whether to enter...
200w ago - Today the AP reports that Google is planning to build ultra-fast broadband networks in select areas.
Feeling lucky? Apparently Google will seek input from communities that might be interested in getting one of its test networks which will deliver speeds of 1 gigabit per second.
That would be roughly 50 to 300 times faster than the DSL, cable and fiber-optic networks that connect most U.S. homes to the Internet today, at speeds typically ranging from 3 megabits to 20 megabits per second.
To quote: Google envisions systems that will enable consumers to download a high-definition, full-length feature film in less than five minutes; allow rural health clinics to send 3-D medical images over the Internet; and let students collaborate with classmates around the world while watching live 3-D video of a university lecture.
"Our goal is to trial new technologies and figure out what kinds of applications you can send over these big pipes," said Richard Whitt, Google's Washington-based counsel for telecommunications and media. "There may be next-generation applications that are being held back right now."
Google said it is prepared to sell access directly to consumers at prices that are competitive with existing broadband services, but would consider letting Internet service...
