Video: PS3 Proxy Server Demonstrated on Firmware 2.60?

650°
283w ago - Here is a video of PS3 Proxy Server (alternate [Register or Login to view links]) being used with PS3 Firmware 2.60.

Note: It is believed that once you download the [Register or Login to view links] PKG file you can see it in the XMB and still (as always) have to install it.

The video does not show that, most likely because the installation would fail generating an error as it has since around the 2.4 PS3 Firmware Update. This is likely why the bubble is still around it when it's shown in the PS3 XMB.

However, the video does show the downloading of a file via PS Proxy. Feel free to comment below if anyone experiments with this further!

Video: Cancelled PS3 Exclusive FPS 'Redwood Falls' Footage

50°
283w ago - Redwood Falls was a zombie shooter first announced way back in 2006, exclusive to Sony's PS3 console.

Late last year, the title was put on indefinite hold by developer Kuju Entertainment, citing a lack of funds to continue the project.

Redwood Falls separated itself with it's gruesome damage system, allowing players to shoot or cut off pieces of flesh to get to the zombies vital organs.

The video shown was from early in development, when the title was still set to be multiplatform. It sets the mood of the game, going from a creepy forest to a desolate pier.





Things heat up, showing some of the game's combat mechanics against some sort of massive creature. Redwood Falls definitely seems to have been influenced by John Carpenter's The Thing, both in terms of the isolated atmosphere and the appearance of the creatures.

In any case, Redwood Falls looks really impressive, and it makes you wonder how games like this get canned while games like Shell Shock 2 make it all the way to the market.

283w ago - VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has announced that Killzone 2 ads are making their way to both TV and PSN later today as follows:

I am confident this game will inspire many of you who've been waiting for the right time to buy a PS3. It is a true testament to what "Only on PlayStation" means.

We're excited the promise of Killzone 2 has been realized and has exceeded expectations due to the tireless efforts and dedication of [Register or Login to view links]. I can't thank the development team enough for remaining true to the vision and producing one of the most impressive games in recent memory - on any platform. The pre-order numbers only reinforce your great enthusiasm for the game and we're pleased the game reviews show the same.





A group of us flew out to meet with the development team in late 2008 for a product meeting - we had an idea for a fresh way to promote the game. It was to bring the incredible detail in Killzone 2 to life by showcasing the game's technology - only made possible by the power of the PS3.

The idea for the commercial centered on telling the story of war on Helghan - up close and very personal and to use the game's engine to show it. No voodoo,...
