Video: Patapon 2 Multiplayer Trailer and PSP 'Digital Only' FAQ

50°
292w ago - Today SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda shared a Patapon 2 multiplayer trailer and PSP 'Digital Only' FAQ as follows:

I want to take a moment to answer some questions about last week's "digital only" format announcement.

Q - What happens if accidentally erase or lose my Memory Stick?
It doesn't matter how many times you erase, break or lose your memory stick. The magic of Patapon 2 is that can re-download it (for free) as many times as you want off the PlayStation Network using the PSN ID you bought or redeemed the voucher with.

Q - I fiendishly back-up all my digital entertainment; can I do that with Patapon 2?
Yup, you can back up the Patapon 2 game on a PC with Media Manager, a free application available at store.playstation.com. It's easy-peazy-lemon-squeazy.





Q - How much Ka-ching will I have to drop for Patapon 2?
Patapon 2 is priced at a wallet friendly $19.99 USD for both the retail voucher and the PSN download.

It is very clear to see how passionate you guys are about Patapon 2 and we're thankful for all your feedback and opinions. Of course there are many other questions, but since we did promise a breakdown on multiplayer, we best jump...
 

Game Informer Article Confirms M.A.G. as FPS Only PS3 Title

200°
294w ago - According to Extric from the official PlayStation boards (linked above) M.A.G. is confirmed as a FPS only PS3 title.

A scan of the article detailing this from Game Informer magazine is available below, and to quote:

Okay, I just got done reading the MAG article in the latest Game Informer and here is the information on the games camera view:

The biggest change SOCOM fans will notice in MAG is the gameplay perspective; Zipper abandoned the third-person perspective in favor of a first-person experience.

"We looked at the number of different camera options for the game, and settled on FPS primarily because of the scale of MAG," Bodewin remarks. "Some of our previous games were third-person, and it was well suited to [managing] teammates and AI quadrates as well.

But for a game of this size we really wanted to make it the most immersive and the most intense large-scale game that we could. There's really no better way to do that than to sink you right into the action and look at things through a first-person perspective."

Here is a picture of the paragraph where I got the information from. Best one I could get because the flash kept getting in the way...
 

Sony: MAG is Only Possible on PS3, an Iteration of SOCOM

300°
295w ago - SCEA hardware marketing boss John Koller has claimed that upcoming multiplayer shooter MAG can only be built on PS3.

"MAG is a 256 online-player game which is spectacular," he said, talking to VG247 at GDC last week.

"If you look at that competitively, it's something that's only possible on PS3. The processor speed, the ability of PS3 to showcase 256 players at any given time, and their actions."

Koller went on to detail the Zipper Interactive game's concept.

"It's basically like an iteration of SOCOM, where you're maybe commanding the SEALs, and someone else has the Rangers, and the Green Berets, and so on," he said.

MAG was Sony's "big" announcement at the end of its 2008 E3 press conference. A movie was shown of the title, featuring soldiers, vehicles and lots and lots of guns.

It's planned for release late this year.
 

Guide: Upgrade Your PS3 HDD with Ease, 320GB for Only $64.99

550°
297w ago - Although many here have already upgraded their PS3 HDD, those who haven't yet due to being intimidated by the task may wish to check out the following guide:

It's not as intimidating as it looks. If you can handle a screw driver, you can swap out your PS3 hard disk.

PS3 Hard Drive Upgrade Options:
Western Digital - [Register or Login to view links]
Western Digital - [Register or Login to view links]

Since we were the guinea pigs, we'll briefly inform you of where we went wrong and how you can upgrade without error.

1. Careful with the screws - I make this the first point even before backing up because of issues we both had. I could be wrong, but the PS3 screws are made of some soft metal such as pewter. We both stripped out at least one screw.

2. Backup Data - Either flash drives or external hard drives can be used for this process. If you NEED all your saved games back, make sure you have a FAT32 external hard drive, and run the backup utility from "System Settings" then "Backup Utility".

Finally, check out the video below if you haven't seen it yet:

50°
305w ago - On sale Tuesday 20th January, the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine UK will have the first official Killzone 2 review, Future publishing announced this morning.

Not only do you get a review, you get a "highly collectable" holographic wallet which has an image of a Helghast trooper on it and it also "shifts colour as the light catches it."

"Killzone 2 is without doubt the best looking game on the PlayStation 3, and we wanted to come up with a treatment that mirrored the visual voodoo which the development team at Guerrilla Games has pulled off," said Tim Clark, Editor in Chief of Official PlayStation Magazine UK.

"We couldn't be happier with the finished results."

David Wilson, UK PR Manager at Sony Computer Entertainment UK, added:

"Killzone 2 has been a long time in the making, and best showcases why PlayStation 3 is the only console powerful enough to deliver a ground-breaking title of this nature. Who better to partner with than the Official PlayStation Magazine, in order to offer the readers a special collectors edition issue. It's a great way to celebrate the launch of this milestone game."
