Skylanders Swap Force Dark Edition, PS3 Special Edition Revealed

50°
35w ago - Executive Producer Scott Krager revealed the Skylanders Swap Force Dark Edition and Special Edition for PS3 today with details below.

To quote: In the beginning there was magic... There's this magical moment when a Skylanders fan puts a toy on the Portal of Power and watches the character burst to life in the game.

In fact, that's our official term for this experience - Magic Moment. It was coined shortly after the start of development on the first Skylanders game back in late 2008.

As the team watched the first group of kid playtesters experience a physical toy come to life in a videogame - bringing together two things they love most - it was pure magic for them and us. Since then, the term has been a fundamental part of the Skylanders lexicon.





And the magic continues... Cut to five years later as we're literally in the final throes of finishing the third game in the series - Skylanders Swap Force - and we're still amazed by just how magical Skylanders is to millions of kids around the world.

To keep the experience magical and adventurous... fun and humorous... epic and engaging... we're always looking for ways to be fresh and innovative. This year with Swap Force, we're introducing...

700°
36w ago - Following up on his previous revision and the utility from nullptr comes PS3 HDD Reader for Windows from 3141card which can now read and copy from both fat and slim PS3 HDD variations.

Download: ps3_hdd_reader_windows.rar

To quote: Ok, with much help from mind i get it work. A BIG THX to mind for help me debug the prog. The app can now read, and copy from, fat and slim hdd's.

Some words to safety. The app has only read access, self the incredible bug of all bugs, can not lead to a write access. The app can not destroy your ps3-hdd.

Windows knows not about a PS3-hdd, its a unknown format for Windows. That means, if you not initialize the PS3-hdd, AND DO IT NEVER, the ps3-hdd is not existing for windows, no random read or write processes to a device which not exists for the OS.

Notes:

1) The App will NOT destroy your PS3′s HDD.
2) Now you can COPY from PS3 Fats too.
3) Avast warning...

50°
37w ago - Creat Studios Boston VP of Product Development Jason Benham posted up a video today announcing that Ms Germinator will be making a splash soon on PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: You know what sequels starting with the letters 'Ms.' usually mean: similar to the original, only more and even better?

Well, that's kind of the idea with Ms. Germinator too - she'll be splashing onto PS3 and PS Vita very soon with more power-ups, more modes and, well, just more style than her gnarly, gruff counterpart.

Ms. Germinator really does take her domestic cleaning to new extremes! You get to inflate and pop vast colonies of colorful germs growing on your stuff while skilfully using the new power-germs to devastating effect.

Here, the level shapes synchronize closely with the lush, cartoony backdrops. Hey, you'll actually get to disinfect your dog's bowl up close and personal, like... now, did we hit the spot or what?





There are literally hundreds of challenging levels in Campaign, Puzzle, Arcade and Duel multiplayer modes, all in serious need of disinfection. Have you got what it takes to 3-star them all? Frozen and contagious germs will muddy the waters while teleporters (yes, they've...
