50°
286w ago - Today SCEA Producer Daimion Pinnock has announced WipEout HD Fury Expansion Pack PS3 Details, as follows:

The WipEout HD Fury expansion pack will increase the content of your current game with 8 new tracks, 13 new ship models and 3 new game modes, 2 of which will be available for online play! In addition there will be new trophies to attain, a re-styled front-end and a selection of new & improved multiplayer functionality!

The Eliminator game mode will allow you to release all that pent-up aggression as you use the full arsenal of Wipeout weaponry to destroy your opponents. Forget those racing lines; this is all about destruction, with the victor being the first to reach the target score!





Zone Battle is about risk and reward! Acceleration is automatic as you swoop over zone pads to fill your zone bar. Your choice is whether to use the bar to increase your speed and boost your ship ever closer to the target zone or absorb it to replenish vital lost energy. Warning, avoid the 'zone barriers', obstacles left on the track by your opponents as they boost towards the target zone, hitting these can literally destroy your hopes of victory!

Our Detonator mode introduces a brand new ship model to the game that will test both your piloting...
 

New God of War 3 Combat and Boss PS3 Details Available

50°
286w ago - The July issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine (PTOM) features God of War 3 on its cover, and inside includes the first new info on the game since Sony unveiled it back in February.

Kicking things off, lead combat designer Adam Puhl goes into detail on the game's Spider-Man-style grappling ability, which essentially takes the grapple points from God of War 2 and places them on the game's enemies.

"At any point, if there's an enemy on the ground, in the air, wherever, Kratos can throw his blades at them, pull himself into that enemy [or pull the enemy over, or toss the enemy left or right], and perform a shoulder ram," he says.

"When it hits, the game slows down, so you get this impactful attack, and you can continue to combo after that... the combat grapple is a linker for the entire combat system."

While the article doesn't reveal any new weapons, it confirms there will be four "main" ones in the finished game, so that leaves two (in addition to the blades and the Cestus) that have yet to be revealed. Apparently each weapon will be tied to its own magic attacks, and one of the Cestus' magics sees Kratos "pound the ground to send a massive wave of destruction in front of him," according to PTOM 's Teresa Dun. Puhl notes that magic attacks "will have more gameplay...

287w ago - Update: Complete specs and videos from the June issue of Qore are available on YouTube, but the latter one appears to have been removed.

In the video, Qore host Veronica Belmont discusses the new PSP Go handheld with Sony's John Koller who mentions the handheld (which features 16GB of internal storage, a memory slot for expandable memory and bluetooth) will not replace the current PSP-3000 - they will coexist.

Also, expect Sony's E3 briefing to mention Jak & Daxter PSP (announced previously) and Gran Turismo PSP - which has been known since the birth of the platform. Get those bingo cards out, kids!

Quantum Theory: Details and Scans from Famitsu Magazine

50°
287w ago - Ever since the revealing trailer since October last year, information of Quantum Theory (tentative title) has been kept quiet... until now.

Here is a rough translation of the scans: Quantum Theory is a new action game from Tecmo with over the top battles taken place within a tower which changes it's structures over time.

With the tower shifting (Diabloizes) it's shape over time, it is eroding into the world endangering the people around. Many have tried to invade the tower to stop the erosion, but all have died. Now a man crossing over all the corpses that failed before him, has risen to challenge the tower.

The main character Sid, carrying a machine gun named "Grave Digger", will meet his partner Feleena inside the tower working towards the same goal of stopping the tower. Feleena carries a gun that will turn into a light saber during close combat. Players will need to adapt to the changing environments within the tower and fight accordingly.

Under release info, only a release date of 2010 is given. Categorized under "SF Action" and the genre is "Action/Shooting". It lists that the game will have PlayStation Network support but nothing is said about if it's 1 or multiplayer.

On the 2nd page of the scan it says that Feleena will act on her own, sometimes fighting...
 

Killzone 2 Patch 1.27 Details for PlayStation 3 Available

50°
287w ago - Today Sony's Associate Product Marketing Manager TJ Consunji has announced the Killzone 2 Patch 1.27 details for PlayStation 3, as follows:

This week sees the release of Patch 1.27, which introduces a number of tweaks based on direct feedback from the Killzone community. We sat down with Eric Boltjes, Guerrilla's Lead Multiplayer Designer, to walk us through the most important changes and the reasons for their implementation.

First of all, Eric, can you run us through the highlights of Patch 1.27?

Sure! Most importantly, we've added functionality to make the process of finding and playing with friends much easier, tweaked the Skirmish Mode to keep it interesting for players with lower-bandwidth network connections, introduced a new 'High Precision' option to the controller configuration menu, and improved the overall balance of the game. There's also a host of smaller changes as well, but I'll save that for the change log.

Let's start with the first one: finding and playing with friends. How has that been changed?

We've examined how party systems work and added similar functionality to our game where possible. The 'Join Friend' option has been changed so that the player can automatically join a friend's faction and squad -...
