Confirmed: No Red Bull Air Race on PlayStation Home This Year

50°
292w ago - Just before the weekend, TedTheDog has stated on the European PlayStation boards (linked above) that Red Bull's Air Race definitely won't appear in 2008.

To quote: Beta's are often difficult as everyone wants the new toy, whatever it may be, to work just as the vision portrays but as a beta things are being used in untried ways and things are bound to go wrong.

And the vision of Home is pretty exciting right? We know its a little bare right now and we've got some problems to solve, but they'll be solved and we can then move on to running it as the service we all want.

The reality is that we really are beta testing Home and we have to get these load related issues dealt with (and they can be dealt with.)

I'm very reluctant to give an ETA for the Red Bull Air Race as the very nature of what were doing here throws schedules sometimes (as you've seen) but it certainly will not be before the new year now. I know its irritating, but it really ought to be worth the wait, its really quite impressive and a lot of fun.
 

Rumor: Uncharted 2 for PlayStation 3 to be Set in India?

50°
292w ago - According to kittoo from NeoGAF (linked above) he feels it's pretty much (unofficially) confirmed that Uncharted 2 for PlayStation 3 is going to be set in India.

Below are the related pictures, and here is his reasoning as follows:

In this pic (top left), the truck is shown is of TATA motors. TATA is an Indian truck company and more than half of the trucks in India are manufactured by this company. Also, on the truck, Natraj is written. Its name of an Indian God and is pretty common in India.

A lot of things in this screen (top right) are written in Hindi. The top most red board in right says beer in Hindi. Also the last board in right says 'hastrekha vigyan' which means 'science of palm reading'. The board above it says something in Hindi too but I cant read that.

This pic (bottom left) has one more board in Hindi.

A hindu God in the right picture (bottom right). The statue.

XCM Dominator Joystick for PlayStation 3 Announced!

50°
292w ago - The folks over at [Register or Login to view links] have announced their new [Register or Login to view links] this weekend.

To quote: Some gamers find the combo attacks in many games are hard to execute on a regular basis. You may need to combine 4-8 different button attacks with the proper timing to pull special moves. (Example: Y + Y + X + L + R + A + Y + B)

With a normal controller this task is nearly impossible. The XCM Dominator Joystick solves this problem, and lets you execute these combos with ease. Just program the keys to a special button and then you only need to press that button to pull off those special moves.

The XCM Dominator Joystick includes 2 very special features: Combo Attacker and Independent Rapid Fire. This will allow you to dominate your opponents with ease.

With these 2 features in hand fighting games will never be the same again!
 

Confirmed: X-Edge (US) is Coming in March 2009 to PlayStation 3

50°
292w ago - Speaking to [Register or Login to view links], an NIS America representative confirmed the rumors that the ensemble RPG X-Edge will be headed for the US.

That's great news for traditional JRPG fans everywhere - the Compile Heart title features characters from the companies Capcom, Namco-Bandai, Gust, Idea Factory and Nippon Ichi.

Mark your calendars, the game will be released in March 2009.

To quote: X-Edge just seems to have NIS America all over it. It features characters from Disgaea, Mana Khemia, Ar tonelico, Spectral Souls, and the Atelier series. I mean, come on, there are even Prinnies. When should we expect to see it in North America?

NISA: X-Edge is an interesting project since it's a collaboration between 3 different companies. It's pretty funny to see a little Prinny fight characters from Darkstalkers like Morrigan and Demitri.

The release date isn't finalized yet, but it's going to be in March 09.
