Afrika for PlayStation 3 is Finally Coming to North America

250°
278w ago - Natsume announced today that they are bringing the PS3 title Afrika to North America this fall finally.

To quote: Developed by Rhino Studios, Afrika is a photography simulator with adventure elements.

Boasting licenses from Sony and National Geographic (to name a few), Afrika places you in the vast African wilderness as you attempt to capture images of the various animals and plants with your trusty camera.

Afrika is divided into several different modes, though all of them revolve around the "one with nature" design theme. The Safari mode is divvied into three parts: the Safari Game, the Photo Gallery and the Big Game Trophy mode. The GEO Afrika section of the game is also split into three segments: the Afrika Field Guide, the National Geographic Library and the Afrika Viewer.

The Safari Game is the bread and butter of the Afrika experience. In it, you'll choose between a male or female photographer and set up a large tent in the African wild, which serves as your base of operations. Here, you can sort through your various cameras and lenses, study maps of the surrounding environments and check your PC for email and more.

Emails are the key to accepting missions in Afrika, and missions are the primary gameplay component of the experience. You'll be tasked with pursing...

50°
278w 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 -...

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...

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.)
