PSN Version of Warhawk No Longer Locked to Purchased Account

400°
299w ago - Just logged in today with one of my alt accounts and it is no longer locked to the account that originally purchased it.

This ticked me off so much when I originally bought it from the PlayStation Store that I never bought a PSN version of any game due to not wanting to get burnt again by Sony.

Why would I buy a game if my whole family can't play it on there own accounts?

I'm sure the original account must be present on the console your playing on but I can't confirm this because my wife is playing on her account at the moment. lol

Well thumbs up to Sony for finally getting rid of this stupid restriction.

Confirmed: The PS3 HDD Has NOT Been Decrypted!

700°
303w ago - Headlines on other sites are reading: "Hackers decrypt retail PS3 HDD", "Retail PS3 HDD decrypted" and "UPDATE: We have confirmation that this decryption was done on a RETAIL PS3 (not Test/Debug)".

They are ALL wrong. We have looked into this over the past 24 hours extensively, and needless to say - our first suspicion was correct (which is why it was labeled as a [Register or Login to view links]). Simply put - its a fake.

The files are real, but they were dumped from a TEST PS3 (old news), from its /dev_flash (Thanks NDT!) folder which is 100% accessable with a TEST.

Furthermore, the explanation of the "encryption" was all wrong (see my earlier post). On top of that, the real research done was 'borrowed' (to put it nicely) by DemonHades from the source... namely knightsolidus, who has been doing research with the PS3 HDD.

He made some interesting findings (hitting a similiar roadblock that we did, but we are now working together to try to get past it), however, currently...

304w 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,...
