Killzone 2 Patch 1.27 Details for PlayStation 3 Available

50°
270w ago - Today Sony's Associate Product Marketing Manager TJ Consunji has announced the Killzone 2 Patch 1.27 details for PlayStation 3, as follows:

This week sees the release of Patch 1.27, which introduces a number of tweaks based on direct feedback from the Killzone community. We sat down with Eric Boltjes, Guerrilla's Lead Multiplayer Designer, to walk us through the most important changes and the reasons for their implementation.

First of all, Eric, can you run us through the highlights of Patch 1.27?

Sure! Most importantly, we've added functionality to make the process of finding and playing with friends much easier, tweaked the Skirmish Mode to keep it interesting for players with lower-bandwidth network connections, introduced a new 'High Precision' option to the controller configuration menu, and improved the overall balance of the game. There's also a host of smaller changes as well, but I'll save that for the change log.

Let's start with the first one: finding and playing with friends. How has that been changed?

We've examined how party systems work and added similar functionality to our game where possible. The 'Join Friend' option has been changed so that the player can automatically join a friend's faction and squad -...
 

Crimson Gem Saga RPG Ships Tomorrow for PlayStation Portable

100°
270w ago - Today Clayton Chan of Crimson Gem Saga, Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament has revealed that a new RPG for Sony's PSP called Crimson Gem Saga ships tomorrow.

To quote: Crimson Gem Saga is a turn-based RPG that boasts all the fundamentals of solid, satisfying RPG action that seasoned genre veterans crave, developed by our fine friends and partners in Korea, IronNos and SK Telecom.

We've heard the cries and clamoring of PSP owners looking for a deep RPG experience, so we're bringing you one, just in time for the long summer months. Crimson Gem Saga boasts interesting customization for your weapons and skills, powerful combination attacks, and will keep you on your toes with the ever-present threat/opportunity of Ambush attacks and Critical Combo chains.





That's all in addition to a fun script that is full of memorable characters, entertaining events, and fantastic moments that separate the overall experience from what's already available out there.

The Ambush system will keep you on your toes in a way most standard RPGs won't be able to match. Instead of just wandering into a random battle after "X" steps on the field map, Crimson Gem Saga allows you to either avoid these battles, or exploit enemies who aren't...

271w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star shared a new PlayStation Xi video, as follows:

Xi, the adventure based in PlayStation Home, took another step into the real world this week as a select group of players met with characters face-to-face - in a limousine.

The meetings were 'recruitment interviews' to join [Register or Login to view links], a mysterious corporation whose motives have always been unclear.

But now their aims are becoming clearer. All of the candidates in both New York and Los Angeles were given a pen during their interview.





Each pen contained a USB stick hiding passwords to a restricted area of the Veilcorp Web site. And it looks like Veilcorp has had plenty of reasons to keep their dirty business secret...

To find out more, switch on your PS3, download Home, and look for the Xi graffiti in the main square. The recap video in the Hub will help you catch up with the action.

Meanwhile, check out the video above of some of the candidates in New York. (We're not sure if [Register or Login to view links] were candidates as well or just big fans of Veilcorp.)

Rumor: Music Downloads Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network?

100°
271w ago - CNET has an interesting PSP/PSN rumor that might interest all you music lovers out there.

The word from [Register or Login to view links] is that Sony has been talking to some big recording labels. This is of course about placing music on the PlayStation Network for download.

Apparently the pitched idea is focused on the PSP. This would make yet another great expansion to the PSN library. Add the rumored game rental service, the ever growing movies/TV shows library, and the talks about making PSN for other Sony products, this could get PSN to be a full fledged download hub from Sony.

Not a bad idea if you ask me. The focus on PSN will grow our reach, and will potentially cover the things we have been wanting for a long time. If this is Sony slowly trying to get digital distribution to us, they seem to be doing it the right way.

Don't get your hopes up though, this is all rumors. Now with that said, where is my cloud gaming?!
