157w ago - Sony's VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has shared a video featuring Kevin Butler today as part of their PlayStation 3: It Only Does Tactical Strategy with a Twist campaign.

To quote: The first half of 2011 is proving to be an exciting one for PlayStation fans in North America.

We're only half-way through April and already we've launched blockbuster titles including Killzone 3 and MLB 11 The Show.

These games give gamers the chance to experience gaming at its best, utilizing both stereoscopic 3D and PlayStation Move, while also proving that it is possible to create motion-control games for core gamers to enjoy.

Next Tuesday we go one step further when SOCOM 4: US NAVY SEALs hits store shelves. To kick off this exciting launch we've brought together Kevin Butler and some real US Navy SEALs, to give us a few pointers on what it takes to succeed under fire in SOCOM 4.





Fans of Reno 911! Miami can catch this ad on Comedy Central when it first airs today at 2:15PM Eastern and Pacific time. Additionally, in the coming weeks you'll see Kevin Butler joined by his U.S. Navy SEALs team during some of the most exciting sporting events and TV programming...

157w ago - Zipper Interactive Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has unveiled SOCOM Pro today, which includes special game types and new weapons.

To quote: We've been keeping a secret here at Zipper Interactive - a hush-hush special bonus that players who purchase new copies of SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs are entitled to the moment they first play the game.

We call it "SOCOM Pro," and you'll first see mention of it when you open a brand new copy of SOCOM 4 on the back of the instruction manual. On that SOCOM Pro call-out, you'll find a redemption code for use on the PlayStation Network that gets you... well, it gets you a whole bunch of super-cool things, really.

SOCOM Pro shows its benefits immediately on launch day, April 19, as any player who purchases a new copy of SOCOM 4 receives exclusive access to all "Pro" Custom Game queues. Not only will these queues be ranked, but they'll also be updated regularly over the entire lifespan of SOCOM 4 - so it'll be the gift that keeps on giving for quite some time.

Moreover, the first set of "Pro" Custom Game types will be the same fantastic rule sets that our diligent fans tested during our SOCOM 4 beta period. If you missed them in the beta, here's what they are now:

157w ago - Today Associate Product Marketing Manager Brian Dunn has shared a video confirming that MotorStorm Apocalypse PS3 races to store shelves on May 3, 2011.

To quote: I am pleased to announce that MotorStorm Apocalypse will be in stores across North America beginning May 3.

That means that in just a few short weeks, you'll be able to get your hands on the most exciting MotorStorm game to date, with more action than a summer Hollywood blockbuster!

I'm also happy to reveal that every new copy of the game will include a voucher for the Premier Pack DLC bundle, which will give you two exclusive in-game vehicles and more (pictured below).

To give you a taste as to what's in store come May 3, take a look at our recent sit-down interview with Game Director Matt Southern as he talks about his vision for MotorStorm Apocalypse and how the game will deliver one of the best racing experiences to date on the PS3:





Gamespot recently gave the game an 8.5, saying the "destructive environments and excellent track design make MotorStorm Apocalypse one of the most exciting racing experiences on the PlayStation 3."

And IGN can't wait for the game, saying "MotorStorm Apocalypse has me all revved up... Controls...
 

Portal 2 Confirmed as First PS3 3.60 Firmware Encrypted Game

550°
157w ago - Today Portal 2 has been confirmed as the first PS3 3.60 Firmware encrypted game, however, as it spreads on torrent sites PlayStation 3 hackers are already examining potential work-arounds to get the game running for PS3 Custom Firmware users.

To quote: We all knew this day would be coming, just like before with the v3.50!

Yep, all the rumors were right! -- Portal 2 would be the first game that was pressed using the currently unreleased APP v3.60 keys!

If you are looking to enjoy the sequel to the acclaimed Valve's puzzle-action hybrid, the Portal 2, then you need to learn to setup your own portal, because playing it on a 3.55 CFW console right now is not possible.

You are looking at different sets of method being tested such as the famous PARAM.SFO editing, EBOOT decrypting, it's just useless without the 3.60 keys. To say that the upcoming L.A. Noire is on the same ride will be my heartbreaking May moment.

So, I hope someone will find the solution for this or just roll on the 3.60 CFW already! But remember to eat some cheese with all that wine!

Something always unfolds in the scene, to get you back into the 'gaming'!
