191w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Rob Rutter has announced news today of a SingStar Online Battle Mode and PS3 Beta coming soon.
To quote: I'm really pleased to be able to let you know about a great new gameplay feature coming soon to SingStar in the June update.
For the first time, you'll be able to take part in Online Battles against your friends in SingStar. When competing in an Online Battle, you'll send an invite to one of your PSN friends, match songs (you both need to own a song to play it) - pick-up the mic and in true MC style 'let battle commence'.
When playing, you can view your opponent's score live, and see them playing via PlayStation Eye.
As this is a new feature for SingStar, the team needs to test out the gameplay with real players, and this is where you come in! We're running a Closed Beta for our most dedicated SingStar players to come and help us test out new features and upgrades to the game. If you're already a SingStar player aged over 18 with a European PSN account, have the game, mics and an online-enabled PS3, we need your help!
201w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up a video on the PlayStation Blog today introducing Assassin's Creed II - Battle of Forli which hits PSN this week.
To quote: If you played through Assassin's Creed II this winter (Platinum Trophy right here, folks), then you may recall there were a couple of corrupted sequences that Desmond wasn't able to access in the Animus.
Well, this week, you'll be able to play through the first of two "repaired" sequences, as The Battle of Forli hits the PSN on Thursday.
Producer Frederic Lefrancois (you remember him, right?) has some more details on the DLC:
The battle of Forli is an actual battle where the Orsi brothers attacked the city of Forli which was ruled at the time by Caterina Sforza. Ezio and Machiavelli - leader of the Florence mercenaries - make their way to the citadel of Forli with the apple of Eden to request protection from Caterina Sforza.
As they approach, something goes wrong: Forli is under attack! Borgia guards are laying siege to the city. The attack seems to be lead by the two dreaded Orsi brothers. Players will have to protect the city alongside Sforza and the great Machiavelli who they have met towards the end of sequence 11. The flying machine will also be accessible...
