500°
267w ago - Sony has announced that a new PS3 Slim will be available on November 3rd. It will have a 250GB hardrive and will cost you $349.99.

To quote Sony's PlayStation 3 Marketing Manager Kim Nguyen:

Since we launched the slimmer, lighter 120GB PS3 system, we've sold one million units worldwide within the first three weeks. We know that all of you are really making use of the PS3's hard drive, as more than 600 million pieces of content have been downloaded from PlayStation Network. But if you are the ultimate digital consumer craving a bigger hard drive, we have the perfect solution for you.

Today, we announced the availability of a new PS3 system with a 250GB hard drive hitting store shelves on November 3. The PS3 250GB system has the same slim look, feel and features as the 120GB system, but with a 250GB built-in hard drive for $349.99. With the new, larger capacity, you'll have even more room to store your favorite games, movies/TV shows, music, photos and PlayStation Network downloads.

267w ago - Here is the European PSN update, courtesy of Mike Kebby from the SCEE PlayStation Store Team.

To quote: You may have seen already that the WipEout HD Fury Complete Pack hit the store yesterday (to match the retail release), this pack combines the full game and recent Fury pack in one handy bundle and there is literally hours of gameplay here waiting for you. We'll also have the full games Uno, Mushroom Wars and the strangeness that is .detuned ready for download later today.

We'll also have a new quiz for Buzz!, so you can test your knowledge of all things spacey (that's the thing above the sky, not the actor), a new pack and bundle for Lumines Supernova, and a few new bits and bobs for High Velocity Bowling. As usual there are also new tracks and packs for Rock Band and Guitar Hero too.

We've also got our next batch of dynamic themes available, so you can customise your XMB with animations from the worlds of PixelJunk Monsters, Pain and High Velocity Bowling.

Finally, from today until Monday morning you can download the first Map Pack for Call of Duty: World at War at a reduced price.

I'm sure most of you this week will be playing Uncharted 2 anyway won't you? If not, I prescribe an immediate dose of Nathan Drake...well, what are you waiting for,...
 

Video: PlayStation Home Ratchet & Clank & Deadquarters Space

50°
267w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has shared a video introducing Ratchet & Clank and a Deadquarters personal space to Sony's PlayStation Home.

To quote: this is the time where we can finally loosen our lips and spill the beans about all the cool PlayStation Home content that we've been working hard to bring you, the PlayStation Home community. And today is especially exciting, because we get to announce one of the single best game spaces to ever grace this platform.

Ratchet & Clank: Time Travelers is arguably the most interactive environment we've published during this phase of Open Beta. Boasting three mini-games ranging from super-casual to ├╝ber-deep - like the massive Skunk Works' tower defense game - this space is jam-packed with things to do, rewards to win, virtual items to collect (like a full-on Ratchet outfit), and sheep to wrangle (huh?).

We're even releasing a Ratchet & Clank apartment - set in a galaxy far, far away - that is a must-have for every die-hard fan of the franchise. And this space is even launching ahead of Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, which means that if you want a taste of the future of the Ratchet & Clank series, you have to get into PlayStation Home. Put your eyes on the below vid, as PlayStation Home...

PlayStation Home Avatars Now Include Free Wolverine Claws

200°
268w ago - European PS3 gamers who view the two-minute long trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine at Sony's PlayStation Home Theatre will then find a free set of Wolverine Claws waiting for them in the Threads store of the Home Mall.

Unfortunately, these are non-functional weapons so you won't be able to go on a virtual rampage in Home... but free is always nice!

To quote: "As of today, it gets a little more dangerous with the addition of wearable Wolverine claws in Sony's virtual social space.

In an effort to promote the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, this year's best mutant action-comedy, on Blu-ray and DVD, Twentieth Century Fox and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe are giving away free adamantium upgrades to Home users. And they're giving away a free animated shirt. They call it a vest in Europe, which sounds much nicer than "wife-beater."

How does one get these lovely prizes?

Well, all one needs to do is visit the old Threads Store in Home, presumably after visiting the Home Theatre to watch a preview of the Blu-ray release."
