294w ago - Either Media Molecule are kicking itself right now or [Register or Login to view links] on its flickr page was placed in public view intentionally.

Either way, we now have a glimpse at some information regarding a few of LittleBigPlanet's upcoming cheese-based patches.

To quote: As you can see from the picture below there are some new details to be gleaned about Cornish Yarg. Namely, that it will include new tutorials and the much-anticipated online create mode, allowing you to create levels with friends over the PlayStation Network.

Two new patches have also been revealed. Jarlsberg promises to add something to do with "2000 AD." Related to an upcoming content pack, perhaps?

Finally, Stinking Bishop will be linked to an "Arcade Pack." What that will include, we have no idea. But we can't wait to find out.

Obviously this is all internal data which may or may not come to fruition. Hopefully we'll hear more in the near future.
 

Burnout Paradise Free Pack Details, Coming February 6, 2009

300°
295w ago - On February 6th, PS3 owners of Burnout Paradise will be able to download a free patch that adds a whole lot of content. To quote:

• In-Game Store (PS3/PC only) - An in-game browser will connect to the "Criterion Games Network." From here, you'll be able to see all the game's updates and purchase any of the upcoming premium DLC.
• Tweaked vehicle handling - The earlier cars are now tweaked to be easier for newcomers to use. "These cars are now slower, harder to crash and less likely to spin out at low speeds."
• Junkyard sorting - You'll be able to compare the stats of cars, and you'll be able to filter out cars, bikes, and upcoming DLC vehicles.
• Stunt Run timer changed - Stunt Run will now have a different timer that starts much slower than before. This allows beginners more wiggle room to start a combo. Experts will still be challenged: the larger your combo, the faster the timer runs out.
• Events rebalanced - All events have been modified to accommodate the new car speeds.
• Road Rage tweaked - Players no longer get additional time once they reach the target score. This is great, because we usually intentionally crash in order to end this mode.
• Enhanced visuals - In-game items, like billboards and smashes, are now easier to spot. The lighting has been tweaked...
 

Resistance 2 Patch 1.40 Details for the PlayStation 3 Unveiled

50°
295w ago - Insomniac Games Community Manager Bryan Intihar reported the following Resistance 2 patch 1.40 update details today:

If you played Resistance: Fall of Man, you know that Insomniac continually looked for ways to improve the online experience, even several months after the game's release.

We're taking the same approach with Resistance 2, as patch 1.40 will be available for download on Monday, January 26 (you'll automatically receive the download prompt the next time you play the game). The patch addresses several areas, including:

Multiplayer Progression

Some people have seen their competitive and/or cooperative characters reset to level 1. For several of those cases, this patch will not only bring back all the XP, stats, and attributes that you've lost, but it will also add to your character profile the XP/stats/attributes that you've earned since those levels were reset.

For example, say you were a level 20 medic and after being reset to level 1, and you earned 5,000 XP. Thanks to the patch, you'll return a level 20 medic and that 5,000 XP will be added to your profile.

This patch will also correct some medal and trophy issues, including the "Killing Machine" trophy (if you've already accumulated 10,000 kills but haven't...
 

Sony to Announce Restructuring Details This Week

50°
295w ago - The Financial Times reports that Sony is set to announce details of its restructuring plan this week.

Despite up to six plants closing and the cutting of 16,000 jobs, analysts have warned that this not enough and Sony many need more drastic measures.

To quote: Sony Corp will announce details of its restructuring plan this week amid internal company resistance to job cuts in Japan, the Financial Times said on Wednesday.

The maker of Bravia LCD TVs, Cyber-shot digital cameras and PlayStation game consoles outlined plans last month that called for curbing investment, closing five to six plants and cutting 16,000 jobs to save $1.1 billion a year in costs.

But analysts and other industry watchers have said Sony will likely need more drastic measures to fight a crippling appreciation in the yen and a sharp slowdown in demand for electronics as the global recession spreads.

"Sony's not in a position to halt all domestic production but it has to do something that drastic," said Mitsushige Akino, chief fund manager at Ichiyoshi Investment Management.
