MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Demo Details

50°
311w ago - Sony has confirmed the contents of the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift demo due to be distributed to Qore subscribers in the US and randomly selected European PSN users starting this Thursday, 11th September.

The track you get to play is Rain God Spires - an Air Zone track that takes you along a bumpy coastal mountain circuit with plenty of ups and downs to highlight the game's massive draw distance.

There's no online play in the demo, but you will be able to play it in two-player split-screen as well as single-player.

If the name sounds familiar, it should; Rain God Spires is a sort of sequel to Rain God Mesa, the mountaintop track that starred in the original MotorStorm demo and gave us our first glimpse of what Evolution's racing game - now series - has to offer.

Resident Evil: Degeneration Headed to Blu-ray; First Details

100°
312w ago - Sometime in December or at the latest January, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the first Resident Evil all-CGI movie on Blu-ray Disc, day-and-date with DVD and PSP.

Sony describes what will be the fourth Resident Evil film as follows:

The "Umbrella Incident" that took place in Raccoon City was ended with the eradication of the deadly virus by a missile attack ordered by the government. As its operations were suspended on a global scale, Umbrella Corporation stock plummeted. This serious blow to the business giant resulted in its complete dissolution.

7 years later, at an airport somewhere in the United States. An ordinary autumn afternoon. One zombie is unleashed into this peaceful scene to attack everyone. In the airport starting to fill up with the undead, the horrific disaster is about to be repeat itself...

We've got early Blu-ray specs and extra features to share which include a nod to Resident Evil 5 on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. In addition to a 1.78:1 1080p video transfer and 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio, expect the following:

- Interactive Picture-in-Picture (Blu-ray exclusive)
- Trivia Track
- The Making of Resident Evil: Degeneration
- Character Profiles
- Voice Bloopers
- Leon Interview
- Resident Evil:...
 

Resistance 2: Collector's Edition details announced!

50°
313w ago - The box art itself still hasn't been shown on Amazon (but it should come soon, as the IGN voting for the boxart earlier this week is already over for the US). The one below is simply of the three candidates (and the obvious favorite).

But until now, we haven't really known what was going to be the in CE edition of the game. Amazon's got the lowdown on what will come for your $80.

Like a lot of CE versions of games these days, Resistance 2 will come with a bonus disc with behind-the-scenes footage, video commentary from Insomniac themselves, and a video dubbed "Twisted History" chronology video.

Of course, there's more. It also comes with an exclusive multiplayer skin (HVAP Wraith), a double-sided art book 'covering a war-torn America from two unique perspectives', and even a sneak peek at the soon-to-happen Resistance novel "The Gathering Storm." Yeah, they're doing one too.

Finally (yes, there's STILL more), a 5.5″ figurine of a Chimera Hybrid will come with the package (holding a Bullseye).
