221w ago - NIS America's Product and Development Manager for Europe Allison Walter has shared a video today which offers a look at Disgaea 2 for PS3 along with details on how to snag some NIS America prizes!

To quote: You might believe that Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days is just another re-release of a fantastic game, but what some of you might not know is that NIS has improved on the fantastic part.

The programmers and designers got together to create some goodies to render the game play even more interesting and the story hilarious: 4 new chapters, Axel, a new main character, Magichange, and a ton of cameos from your beloved Disgaea cast of suspects.

The most important addition is the 4 new chapters featuring Axel, the has-been pop star with a crushing family responsibility. Pining to be at the top once more with hordes of screaming fans anxious to get a piece of him, Axel stumbles upon an opportunity to take part in a superhero show popular among kids. He sees himself already at the top only to... well, you'll be able to find out what destiny has in mind for him when you play the game.

Next lovely addition: Disgaea 2 has Magichange, the newfangled weapon system from Disgaea 3. This tricky little system enables monster allies to transform into a weapon. What's even trickier is...

234w ago - It appears Uncharted is definitely getting a movie after all. According to an interview with New York Magazine, creative director of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Amy Hennig, has told fans not to worry.

To quote: "It's definitely in the works, I can tell people. We've got the best possible partners we could in Columbia Pictures.

If anybody's got any fears of them not understanding the material or not loving it as much as we do, they can wipe those fears away, because these guys really get it.

I can say from the meetings I've had with them so far, their hearts and their heads are absolutely in the right place."

When asked about an Uncharted 3 PS3 game, she stated: "I don't think I'm able to talk about any of that right now.

On a completely general level, the PS3 is an amazing piece of hardware that both us and other developers are only now tapping into its full potential."

First Look: PS3 TOOL - DECR-1000A Front Detailed

700°
238w ago - Earlier this month I purchased a PS3 Reference Tool Model DECR-1000A.

Today I had time so here are some details on exactly what the front of it consists of... I will do a follow-up on the backside and internals soon, and then we'll get into the PS3 Dev aspects of it.

We all remember E3's PS3 - Dual HDMI outputs for extra high-definition widescreen goodness, a built in 3 port gigabit switch, 6 USB ports - features that were trashed. But, on the PS3 Tool, these features are still present, albeit dormant.

Pictured below is the front of the PS3 Tool (click to enlarge it, so you can read the labels), complete with the hidden ports uncovered for you to look at.

The PS3 Tool features, starting from the front left - dual HDD caddies, both sporting a 400GB SATA Hard disk, with eject buttons. - the left most (HDD) is used for the system, while DEV1, holding BD Emulator Images - allowing testing of .ISO's right from a hard disk!

Below that, a Foot Switch Jack is featured which can be used for throwing exceptions for development while playing, among other things.

To the right are 6 USB Ports. The 2 ports marked "extra" were originally intended for the REAR...
