1UP Podcast: PlayStation 3 Slim Madden Bundle Hits This August?

300°
280w ago - Just a few days ago we speculated about IGN's Podcast which referenced the PS3 Slim console as being real.

Today it appears 1UP wants their turn to add some PS3 Slim hype to the Internet in a Podcast of their own, as follows:

In this week's episode, David Ellis stated that the PS3 Slim is coming in August and that it will bundled with Madden NFL 10.

The transcript below can be heard at the 01:26:14 mark.

To quote: "It's gonna be in August. Everything I've heard says it's coming in August, it's tied with Madden."

Sony has previously confirmed Madden's release date is August 14... once again only time will tell, eh?
 

The PlayStation 3 May Be Doing Better Than People Think

650°
280w ago - "It's in third place." "Sony messed up." "Sony is doomed!" Unless you're new to the Internet (in that case, welcome!), you've probably heard all of the anti-Sony PlayStation 3 comments before.

Ever since its launch in 2006, the PS3 has been often called a failure by some Web sites and people (and of course, fanboys).

Even in 2009, with Sony's outstanding game lineup, people are still criticizing the console and its games. The point is, people still love to hate the PS3. But is any of it true?

To quote: After doing some research, I've come to the conclusion that no, it's not even close. In fact, despite currently being outsold by the Wii and Xbox 360, Sony's latest console has been doing a very good job.

First off, there's the sales. As of March 31st, 2009, the PS3 had sold 22.91 million units worldwide, while the Xbox 360 sold 30.2 million units. That's a lead of approximately 7 million.

But when the PS3 first launched, the 360 had sold 10 million units (since it had a one year headstart). That means that since the PS3 launch, the 360's lead has shrunk by 3 million units.

Now let's look at the last-gen consoles. In their lifetimes, the Gamecube sold 21.74 million units, and the original Xbox 24 million. With the PS3 at 23 million, that means that it...
 

ESRB Censors Violent God of War 3 PlayStation 3 Videos

550°
280w ago - Late last night, the ESRB forced the removal of several gruesome God of War III [Register or Login to view links] and replaced them with censored versions.

Two of the more notorious scenes shown thus far from the game, one where Kratos rips the eye out of a cyclops and one where Kratos tears the head of Helios from his body, were blocked out by a big 'censored by the ESRB' logo.

To quote: The two scenes both showed detailed flesh tearing and gore.

Though the trailers can still be found uncensored elsewhere on the 'net, this does bring up concerns as to what may happen to the content in the final game, both in these scenes and ones that haven't been shown.

In an interview from PlayStation Magazine, the God of War team was quoted saying "Some of these scenes are so violent, they are never going on the Internet", meaning we haven't even seen the worst of it yet, but the ESRB is already stepping in.

In 2007, Manhunt was barred from release because of excessive and bleak violence - could God of War III be headed down the same path?
