296w ago - MGO is included with MGS4, but it will be the bare bones to be added to and upgraded in time. The opening credits (of MGS4) were designed by Logan, the people that did the hugely successful ipod ads.

The game will feature various details to play around with such as highly detailed and fashionable consumer gadgets. MGS4 has been 4 years in development.
There will be one hell of a big bang of a final to the game. Not a whimper. This will blow you away. Snake is a slave to injections that keep him alive.
The sneaking play of the originals with it's air ducts and cameras has now become a fast pace living battlefield of traps and innovations. The control system is 'revised and improved'
The Gekkou (the mechs with organic legs that make mooing sounds) will work in packs to hunt you down. They can sense past your optic camo if they think something is amiss.

297w ago - In the latest issue of NEO+, a Polish console magazine, new MotorStorm 2 details have emerged about specific game content and customization available to the user. We've included scans below for you to enjoy and from what we can gather, they are from the in-game replay system.
According to the magazine you will be able to customize your driver to personalize your experience and to further that, you will now be able to customize your vehicles as well with paint and adding new parts. On top of this you'll be given the ability to listen to custom music tracks within races as well as enjoy better camera angles for crashes and better vehicle damage.
Though a lot of you are hoping for a cockpit view of the road, you'll be disappointed, as that does not seem to be an option within the game. However, you will get to race across tracks that feature locations within the jungle, caves, mountain hillsides and volcano craters which include lava.
These are all new features for the franchise that will join the list of other features already released such as split-screen racing. As more information is presented around MotorStorm 2, we'll keep you covered.

297w ago - SCEE refused to be drawn on details of Firmware 2.30 this morning, following yesterday's confirmation that the PS3 software update would be needed to use the new version of PlayStation Store, to be released in mid-April in both the US and Europe.
To quote: We have made no official announcement of the details of Firmware 2.30 or exactly how the new Store will be deployed, a rep stated.
If the information released yesterday was correct, there should be a full Firmware release in the next two weeks, straight off the back of 2.20, which added BD-Live functionality only last week. Time will tell for sure...
