219w ago - Yesterday at Tokyo Game Show 2009 Sony revealed the redesigned PS3 motion controller and launch titles, and today some video footage is available (below) of the wand being used for Resident Evil 5 and LittleBigPlanet.
The captions for each video are below, roughly translated as follows:

Fresh from the Tokyo Game Show, a video of LittleBigPlanet working with the upcoming PS3 wand has been show off.
226w ago - Update: Although not definitive, The-NextLevel.com reports that Capcom's Chris Kramer stated the games will be out "within the next three months."
A few months ago it was first reported that Capcom classics were making their way to Sony's PlayStation Network.
Today the green flag was given to three more, specifically, the ESRB has now rated Dino Crisis, Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis for the PS3.
However, no release dates have been given at this time.
To quote: "The ESRB site doesn't have the search fields in the URL so we can't give you links to the ratings for the games, but search for them and you'll see the newly added 'PlayStation 3' platform under each one.
No dates yet, of course, but presumably we'll see these on our Store sooner rather than later."
227w ago - TheBBPS nominates who they want to play who in the coming fourth installment of the popular Resident Evil film franchsie, entitled Resident Evil: Afterlife, as follows:
Whether or not you like her character, this one's already been confirmed. The sultry Milla Jovovich will be reprising her role as the sexy asskicking genetically engineered supersoldier, Alice.
Since as of now Alice has been the only confirmed returning character, everyone from here on is either rumored or made up by yours truly.
Fans of the films may have noticed that Jill Valentine was surprisingly absent from Resident Evil: Extinction. In fact, it was like she never even existed. Apparently, due to scheduling conflicts with the dreadful Eragon film, Sienna had to decline when asked to reprise her role as Jill.
For Extinction, the writers completely left Jill out of the story to make it possible to bring her back in later films. And since I think it's safe to assume that we won't be seeing more Eragon in the near future, there's a good chance Sienna will be returning in Afterlife.

230w ago - Today, Capcom announced that North American PC gamers will be able to get their hands on Resident Evil 5 on September 15th.
European PC owners will have to wait three extra days, or September 18th, to get their hands on the game.
To quote: The PC version will have a couple of additional things from the console versions – chiefly, stereoscopic 3D, as well as new costumes and "new and improved" mercenary mode that boasts three times as many enemies.
Capcom promised that "more details" will be available on the PC version of RE5 in the coming months.
234w ago - According to both Tawkn (linked above) as well as users on the GameSpot Forums, the Resident Evil 5 Patch 1.03 is now available and apparently it has removed gamesave protection so users can back them up.
To quote: Fire up Resident Evil 5 and you will be prompted to download the 38MB v1.03 patch. But what has changed?
Well, the only thing I noticed so far is that saved game data is no longer copy-protected! This is a huge, huge plus in my eyes.
Its extremely useful to me. Like I said I have two PS3's and I didnt feel like beating the game all over again just so I could play it in the other room. Why copy protect something that just hinders the people who bought it?
