PlayStation Xi Final Videos Available, Hints of PS3 Trophy Room?

50°
288w ago - A few days ago Sony announced that their PlayStation Home alternate reality mystery dubbed Xi's secret was out.

The article didn't go into much detail due to spoilers, leaving people like myself who don't have the time nor desire to get into Xi wondering what it was all about. Thanks to SKFU, wonder no more!

To quote: You need all fragments to enter the big metal door in the Hub and then you have the choice. Destroy Xi or use Xi, watch the videos below + Jess' final video message.

After all the pain to collect all fragments and butterflies you gain 3 in-game trophies which are not even in the normal trophy system. So the thought of Xi to continue is near and if you now go to the manhole on the central plaza you can visit the lounge for people who finished XI. New quests are waiting for you there ;-)

Rant: Why Do Developers Screw-up PlayStation 3 Games?

400°
288w ago - We've all heard the excuse before; "The PS3 is too difficult to develop for." One thing Sony's Playstation 3 is well-known for is its powerful hardware, which boasts (among other things) a Blu-ray disc format and a Cell Microprocessor as its CPU.

For those of you that don't know what all that means, all you need to know is that it is very, very powerful.

But while that's all well and good, there's also a downside to it. The PS3 is complex - more complex than every other console currently on the market.

To quote: Some developing companies have had problems developing games for the PS3, and have even gone so far as to not develop for it altogether. In the past, game consoles have had the same problems with game development (the Sega Saturn comes to mind), but is this really the same case with the PS3? No, it's not.

The first thing that we need to take a look at is the multiplatform games. In the past, some games that have been released on multiple platforms haven't always been as good on PS3. Prime examples of this are Madden NFL 08, F.E.A.R, and the infamous [Register or Login to view links], which all suffered from similar issues with framerate, load times, and glitches.

Now look at other games, like Grid, Bioshock, ES:IV Oblivion,...

100°
288w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Sebastian Downie has announced that the Killzone 2 Flash & Thunder Map Pack will be available today for PlayStation 3.

To quote: With the release of the second Killzone 2 downloadable content pack "Flash & Thunder" on PlayStation Store today, we have been able to uncover Helghast documentation on their movements in the newest maps: Southern Hills and Beachhead.

These two maps might be familiar to veterans of the first Killzone on PS2, but they have been completely reworked and re-imagined to suit the PLAYSTATION 3 experience. With that in mind, here's a report from the frontlines on how to survive the Southern Hills and nuclear attack!





Helghast Field Manual 15: Surviving the Southern Hills

The treacherous ISA forces have resorted to using nuclear devices in their futile efforts to invade our beloved home-planet of Helghan. This cowardly act will not go unpunished and the Helghast High Command training corps has prepared a field manual to ensure its loyal soldiers do not die in vain. Read the below carefully as it could be the difference between your survival of a nuclear attack and turning into a burning corpse.
