MTV Tours the Impressive EA Sports PlayStation Home Space

50°
291w ago - MTV recently toured EA Sports upcoming PlayStation Home Space. To quote:

The Sports Complex is an EA Sports shrine and gaming center. It is still being built, scheduled for a partial April opening. By the time it is launched, two of a planned three games will be available within it: racing and poker, with a golf game to follow.

What you see in this post is what the Sports Complex will get you, for free, through Home. But what's hard to see is how it works. An EA rep walked me through it.

The most important thing to note for Home skeptics is that EA is trying to make boredom in this virtual place impossible. The space is designed to keep as many as 70 people busy with something, though Sony's 'Home' service starts pulling people into duplicate 'instances' of its regions once about 50 people are in it.

The 70 or so stations are spread across the gaming activities and other hangout areas. For example, there will be eight golf stations, accommodating two groups of four people. There are three tiers of poker tables, each seating up to eight players, with slots for other 'Home' users to secure a spot in the next round.

The games are designed as feature...

291w ago - SCEA Director and General Manager for Latin America Mark Stanley made the following announcement today:

I'm thrilled to announce that today PlayStation is officially expanding into Latin America!

So this means that you can now purchase any of the three PlayStation platforms, our library of software titles - such as Resistance 2 - and even the latest peripherals, including our Bluetooth Headset, in 13 countries across Latin America. We're also working on providing access to PlayStation Network in select countries.

This is such an exciting opportunity and we're looking forward to providing social entertainment and gaming experiences you can share among your friends and family around the world. This expansion is the direct result of feedback we received from you and we're proud to deliver PlayStation products and services to enable you to easily connect, play and communicate with one another.

As a native of Costa Rica with many years working directly in the region, I know Latin America holds much promise of growth for SCEA. Muchas gracias to all of you in Latin America and around the world for your support!

New Twisted Metal Details for Sony's PlayStation 3 Console

100°
291w ago - Unless you have been living under a rock you probably already have heard of Twisted Metal coming to the PS3.

This game is personally one of my top 3 car combat games of all time, plus the new PS3 version is being developed by one of the best developers in the game Industry, David Jaffe. He is well known for the Twisted Metal series and the God of War series.

He confirmed that this game will be coming exclusively to the PS3 with no further info on the game until now.

I have covered every possible factual thing related to Twisted Metal for the PS3 on the Internet for months, and here are some of my findings, but remember nothing has been confirmed about this game so these are all still rumors:

•Tons of weapons and combo attacks
•Improved vehicle physics
•Game will run at a smooth 60-frames-per-second
•All the old characters are back including some new faces
•Co-op modes

I personally can't wait to see more news and trailers for this game because we haven't heard much news about this triple A title in a while.
