200°
279w ago - Update: According to German site [Register or Login to view links], the MAG public BETA will begin on September 17, 2009 as confirmed by Andy Beaudoin, chief designer at Zipper Interactive.

Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a MAG GamesCom Virtual Booth Tour video on the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: On day one of Gamescom Cologne, even the jet lag of a 40-hour day couldn't keep me from stumbling my way over to MAG in the PlayStation booth.

There, I found Seth Luisi, Director of Development at SCEA, who walked us through a 128-player "Acquisition" mode Valor map that's playable on the show floor.

Check out the video, and don't forget that Qore subscribers will have the chance to get in on the MAG Official Public Beta on September 17!




 

Video: PS3 Slim Standing Test, PlayStation 3 Slim Stand Hits

550°
279w ago - Pictured below is the PlayStation 3 Slim's new stand, which costs a whopping $24 if you plan to get one when it's available.

It works by laying flat on whatever surface you deem fit, and then it holds your new gaming console upright.

The folks over at Kotaku (linked above) have done a simple PS3 Slim standing test, to see if the fancy accessory is a necessity or not.

To quote stephentotilo, who shared the video on YouTube:

"Can the PlayStation 3 Slim stand without its fancy stand? Being a vertical-system guy, I had to test this."

Check out the video below for the result...




 

PlayStation Home v1.3 Coming This September to the PS3

100°
279w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced today that PlayStation Home v1.3 is coming this September to the PS3 console.

To quote: As announced at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, PlayStation Home's core client will be getting a serious upgrade this fall. And when we say serious, dear readers, we're talking excessive and impressive in quality, extent, and degree. This is the for real deal upgrade!

I got three words to start us off: Universal. Game. Launching. That's right - you can now launch into any PlayStation 3 game directly from Home. Titles that fully support game launching (like Street Fighter IV, Resistance 2, MotorStorm, and Far Cry 2) will be identified by separate icons that appear over an avatar's head and will have varying degrees of additional multiplayer functionality built in.

Simplified game launching will take you from Home to the start menu of your favorite games with ease. Never again will you have to sign out of Home to play with (or against) your friends. Simply insert the disc of your choice while in Home and follow the on screen directions and you'll be good to go.

Shop-a-holics will be stoked to see that an in-store item previewing option will be rolled out. This feature will allow you to preview items of clothing...
