238w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has announced that the MAG - Massive Action Game PS3 Beta officially starts today, although many have commented (below) that they are currently experiencing server issues.

The good news? Sony say it is working hard to fix the issues, to quote from SCEE's Elliott Martin from the European PlayStation blog:

"We have seen a few connection issues today, which the team are working to resolve, so it's possible you may experience some issues connecting to games for the time being."

Welcome back from the holidays, [Register or Login to view links] fans! As we mentioned before we went on break, today is the day that our 100% free and open MAG Beta program kicks off on the PlayStation Network!

Hopefully, you've taken advantage of the head start we provided a few weeks back and already downloaded all the files you need so you can just log in and start playing the game immediately.

If you didn't get a chance to grab the goods quite yet, however, or are just now learning about the program for the first time, that's okay too - anyone can grab the MAG Beta and its files at any time between now and the end of the testing phase on January 10 at 11:59pm.

241w ago - Today SCEA Producer Taku Imasaki announced that the Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Time Trial Challenge officially starts this week!

To quote: Two weeks ago we announced the Gran Turismo 5 Time Trial Challenge, and I'm here to give you a breakdown of what to expect when the demo hits PSN this coming Thursday.

This demo was specifically designed for the [Register or Login to view links] to challenge racing fans to master every straight-away, corner and bump of the track.

We want to use this demo to find out who are the best racers in both the US and Canada. We also created this demo to showcase the realism of the brand new physics engine which is constantly improving before GT5 releases.

As [Register or Login to view links] fans know, our GT games let you select between standard or professional driving physics and adjust a multitude of driving assists, but to make this a real "challenge" for all you racing fans, the GT5 demo has professional driving physics, and many of the assists are disabled. But don't worry.

Even if this demo seems challenging, you'll be able to turn on some of those extra...

To quote: I'm taking a quick break from work to talk to you about some more character creation features in ModNation Racers.

But first, here's a date you're going to want to mark down on your calendars. December 18. That's the day we open up the ModNation Racers Beta to you.

In today's video I'm going to give you a very brief walkthrough of our sticker and layering system. I'm going to create something using one simple shape, several layers, and some color changes.





Once you've seen what I do with one shape and a couple of layers, you can easily imagine what can be done with hundreds of stickers, and hundreds layers at your disposal. Our system allows you to move, scale, skew, rotate, flip and change the height and transparency of all these stickers....
