Rumor: Details on Sony's PlayStation Cloud Surface

50°
288w ago - According to shakedown1987 via GameTrailers (linked above), Sony has began training on their recently patented "PlayStation Cloud".

Apparently, PlayStation Cloud is similar to the social-media site Facebook. This application will update, in real-time, and show all your friends your latest trophy accomplishments, avatar changes, etc.

Furthermore, it seems Sony is looking to make some features of the service public, and is actively looking for current customer service employees to moderate the public arenas.

To quote: Someone from SCEA consumer services told me something interesting. I recently called Sony's consumer services to complain to them about the lack of features, hoping they would forward it to the right people.

The guy I talked to was like he had no idea if they are getting those features however he said that he has an orientation sometime next week for a new service with new features called PlayStation Cloud, he said that all he knows about it is what his manager had told him and that there will be something similar to FaceBook where you'll have a News Feed thing that will say all the things you've done or friends have done on PlayStation Network like...

289w ago - Developed by SoftMax, the team behind the original Magna Carta: Tears of Blood, and powered by the Unreal Engine 3, Magnacarta 2 combines a deep storyline, beautifully detailed graphics and a unique active turn battle system to create a fresh new RPG experience.

Magnacarta 2 introduces an original storyline driven by intense themes of love, hate, politics, betrayal and the ultimate question of choosing one's own fate. Players are immersed in the world of the Lanzheim Continent, a conflict-ridden land deeply divided by a fierce civil war.

Powered by the Unreal Engine3 and featuring character designs by famed Korean artist Hyung-Tae Kim, the game bears a striking visual style unlike any other RPG through its blend of photo-realism and Japanese manga influences.

The deeply emotional story is driven by beautifully rendered CGI cut-scenes featuring fully voiced dialogue to draw players into the immersive experience.

Delivering more than 40 hours of gameplay, Magnacarta 2 features a unique battle system which combines strategic turn-based battles and real-time gameplay, creating a fresh twist on the traditional RPG formula.

400°
289w ago - Square Enix has shed some more light on its highly anticipated PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 RPG Final Fantasy XIII.

Compared to the demo, the final product will have a more realistic feel to it and the transition from CG sequences to real-time scenes will be smoother. AI will be improved and party members will be capable of delivering a varied portfolio of combination attacks.

To quote: The development team isn't ready to explain exactly what kind of relationship exists between Lighting and Snow, yet Snow apparently refers to the heroine as "older sister." Lightning's crystal is shaped like a rose, whereas Snow's looks like a heart.

Following Ifrit, Shiva, Carbuncle and Bahamut, Odin is the fifth summon officially confirmed to appear in the game (as seen at Microsoft's E3 press conference). Like Shiva, Odin will be able to transform into a vehicle during battle.

Talking about Shiva, the two sisters which make up this icy summon can be transformed into a bike. Players can ride this bike by using the analog stick to freely move around on the battlefield and attack their opponents by pressing a button.

In this mode, the game will feel similar to an action game. Apparently,...
