Sony: We're Expanding PlayStation Network Beyond PS3

350°
277w ago - Sony's CEO Howard Stringer has revealed that Sony will be expanding the PlayStation Network to hardware other than the PS3 console.

Stringer noted the expansion is a good idea because the number of PS3's sold puts a limit on the scale of the network possible.

To quote: Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer has spoken on how online services have driven the expansion of the PlayStation business, and has implied that Sony is set to push the PSN service on other devices.

"We will be expanding the PlayStation Network to hardware other than the PS3," he said in an interview with Asian news service [Register or Login to view links]. He said that Sony will be expanding the PSN because the number of PS3 units sold "puts a limit on the scale of the network possible."

NIS Announces Last Rebellion Exclusively for PlayStation 3

50°
278w ago - It appears Trinity Universe isn't the only RPG on the way from Nippon Ichi Software.

NIS America also revealed at their press event that the long-rumored RPG, Last Rebellion, will be coming exclusively to the PlayStation 3.

The game is in development at Hitmaker, the same guys behind the Crazy Taxi games.

Players can roam around the world field and make action movements like in an action game, but once you enter battle, you engage the enemy using a turn-based system. The game features the ability to target different body parts on an enemy to weaken that area (such as hitting their legs to slow them down).

The game revolves around the characters Nine and Aisha. Nine is a Blade, whose specialty is physical attacks, and Aisha is a Sealer, who uses magic spells to attack & seal enemies. Players will be able to switch between the two in battle, strategically choosing which attacks to unleash first.

Last Rebellion is due to release in Fall 2009.
