And thanks go to the 100 PlayStation fans who joined us to celebrate these wins in Hollywood on Saturday evening. It was a truly fun time, and [Register or Login to view links] when UNCHARTED 2 claimed Game of the Year/Best PS3 Game/Best Graphics was made all the sweeter by the fact that several Naughty Dogs were there to watch along with us.

Along the way we raffled off multiple copies of our biggest games of the year (Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, UNCHARTED 2 and more), a couple of super-rare James Grayson-inspired [Register or Login to view links]

241w ago - SingStar Content Manager of London Studios Nina Scherer has announced the SingStore PS3 Releases for the Week of December 14, 2009, as follows:

So, the time has come: I can finally reveal the tracks and SongPacks in the last ever SingStore update of 2009! I hate to say, I am just a little bit proud of myself for not giving anything away previously - it's not been easy

Here you go then. I hope you'll be as excited as me about some of the stuff in the update and I certainly look forward to seeing some of you with your families and friends giving some amazing holiday perfomances on My SingStar Online in the nest few weeks.

Just in time for the upcoming festivities we've got four, yes, four SongPacks for you to celebrate with.

There's no doubt about it, these guys are the first family of Motown and you can be part of the phenomoenon by downloading the brand new Jackson 5 SongPack. There is also great classical pop from Il Divo, feelgood tunes from Eddy Grant and the SingStar Essentials: Party Picks SongPack -

Last but not least, a big thanks to all you guys who have supported SingStar throughout 2009 and of course to the whole team here who have worked really hard this past year to make the SingStore bigger and better than ever.

Well, that's...
 

Gran Turismo 5 Slated for Summer 2010, PS3 Demo Next Week

700°
241w ago - During a short demo presentation of Gran Turismo 5 earlier this week, SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda re-confirmed the March 2010 GT5 PS3 release for Japan.

Without getting too specific, he then revealed that Sony was eying a vague "Summer 2010" release, which hopefully means we'll see it before leaves start falling off trees next year.

However, those seeking to get their hands on Gran Turismo 5 sooner will find a PS3 demo on PlayStation Network next week.

To quote: "Interestingly, Hinojosa-Miranda had mentioned to me that he was traveling the U.S. in the coming week to photograph cars for Polyphony's reference material. With nearly 1,000 cars in the game, it's not that big of a stretch to think that they may still be working to flesh out the game's roster.

And while he wouldn't confirm how far along they were towards completing Gran Turismo 5 development, he did say this work wasn't necessarily for the current game.

"It's not for Gran Turismo 5 or a DLC release," he said, clarifying that it's constantly building on its reference material archives. After years of development and multiple Gran Turismo titles, how else do you think it's filling those garages but with non-stop research?

On the subject of DLC for the title, he said...

243w ago - Sony's PlayStation 3 Slim entertainment system seems to be picking up the pace this holiday season, as VentureBeat.com (linked above) reports that 440,000 PS3 consoles were sold during Thanksgiving Week this year.

It appears Sony's Blu-ray Movie, PS3 Slim Bundle and HD Entertainment promotional campaigns are paying off indeed.

To quote from SCEA's Sr. Director of Corporate Communications and Social Media Patrick Seybold:

"The 2009 holiday season got off to an amazing start for PlayStation, with all key retailers showing a significant increase for PS3, PSP and key holiday titles over Black Friday and the holiday weekend.

PlayStation 3 demand was at an all time high with the system selling more than 440,000 units for the week ending 11/29/09."
 

Killzone for PS2 Turns Five - Celebrate with Double XP Weekend

250°
244w ago - Guerrilla Games Lead Online Game Designer Eric Boltjes has announced that in celebration of Killzone for PS2 turning five a Double XP weekend is in order, as follows:

November 26 will be a very special day for all of us here at [Register or Login to view links]. On that day, exactly five years ago, the very first Killzone title for PlayStation 2 hit the shelves in Europe.

Sure, the game had already been released in the US three weeks prior, but hey... Guerrilla is based in the Netherlands. We commemorate the 26th because that's the date that we were finally able to see the fruits of our labor in Dutch stores.

Of course, it would be a shame to leave this occasion unmarked - and I'm not talking about the champagne and strange Dutch snacks we'll undoubtedly be having at the studio. We also want to celebrate it with you, the fans. After all, the Killzone brand wouldn't be where it is today without your support. So here's what we have in store for you over the next few days:

Looking back at Killzone 1
Later this week on [Register or Login to view links], Seb "Motherh" Downie and I are going to play through the first Killzone game for you. We'll be commenting on our favorite sections and wallowing in beer-induced nostalgia.
