Disgaea 2 Ships Today, Other Classic PSP Titles Re-Releasing

200°
240w ago - Today NIS America, Inc's PR/Marketing Coordinator Nao Zook has announced that Disgaea 2 is now shiping, and that other classic PSP titles will be re-releasing soon.

To quote: It's been a while! I hope you guys are all doing well. Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days for PSP has been shipped to retail stores nationwide today, September 8th!

Even if you've already played Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories on PlayStation 2, this PSP version of Disgaea 2 will still entertain you and give you plenty of sleepless nights, especially with the additional Axel chapters and lots of new systems we've added!

In Disgaea 3, NIS created a new system called Magichange, which gives monster-type ally characters the ability to change into a weapon.

This Magichange is now available in Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days! What's cool about this system is that you will gain different Magichange skills depending on the type of monster, and all of them will help you inflict massive amounts of damage!

Disgaea 2: DHD won't stop there; it also has a system lovingly dubbed "Magichange 2"! You simply place a monster-type character next to a Magichanged human-type character, and then execute the Magichange command again. Now you got "Magichange 2"! So easy, right?...

Sony Strikes Taiwanese Development Deal for PS3 and PSP Titles

200°
250w ago - Sony has struck a deal with Asian game developers to bolster the platform holder's array of PSP and PS3 titles.

Sony Computer Entertainment Asia signed the deal with six developers, such as Taiwanese groups XPEC Entertainment and Yeck Entertainment.

SCE Asia has also opened up its proprietary PlayStation platform to Taiwanese group SOGA Interactive - the team currently developing Stephen Chow's-Kung Fu Hustle, scheduled to be released this winter.

To quote: as the Taipei Times reports the manufacturer has signed a new deal with Taiwanese developers in an effort to help boost the PS3's and PSP's presence in the region. It's been down due to consumers flocking to the cheaper Wii and, consequently, causing the development manpower to follow suit.

Through this new deal with Sony Computer Entertainment Asia, six different independent developers will work on PlayStation products. The Taipei Times implies that digital content on the PS3 and PSP Go is likely to result.
 

Sony Ditches UMD, Classic Titles to See Digital Re-Release

200°
259w ago - Sony's rumored plans for a new PSP dubbed the PSP Go! may also usher in a new wave of games becoming digital downloads for the device.

To quote: That includes, allegedly, the long-awaited arrival of Gran Turismo Mobile.

According to 1UP's report on the PSP-4000/PSP Go!, Sony will be releasing about 100 new and classic PSP games in downloadable form on the PlayStation Store when the new PSP launches. 1UP even writes that Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo Mobile is "said to be one of the premier launch titles."

Announced in 2004, there's been little mention of the portable racing simulator, with Polyphony boss Kazunori Yamauchi saying the title was still "moving forward" last November.

With two alleged storage options available (8GB and 16GB), future PSP owners may have to budget their internal storage space wisely, unless Sony has something clever planned for managing all those downloads.

1UP says it expects Sony to announce the new hardware at E3, just mere weeks away. Keep an eye peeled.
 

EA Releases DRM De-Authorization Tool for SecuROM Titles

200°
263w ago - As many know, some EA PC games only allow the owner to install the game on five machines.

Back in December, EA released a Spore De-Authorization Tool which allowed users to switch these five authorizations around between machines.

Now they've unveiled a new tool that allows you to do this for over a dozen games with SecuROM. You can access the authorization management tool HERE.

The tool only works with SecuROM games released in May 2008 or later. The list of games eligible for de-authorization is available through that link and includes Mass Effect, Mercenaries 2, and Spore. You can also download a program that scans your computer for eligible games.

It seems unlikely that anyone will ever need to install the same game on more than five different computers, even across their entire lifetime. Still, nice to know you can, eh?
