500°
130w ago - This weekend retailers [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] have cut the price of the 160GB PlayStation 3 console from $249 to $199 (£159.99) leaving many wondering if an official Sony PS3 price drop is incoming.

To quote from PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above): "First GameStop cut the price of the PS3 by $50, then Amazon US, now Amazon UK has also dropped the price by a whopping £40 ($64).

If you live in the UK and have yet to get a PS3, be sure to pick one up now. If you don’t, then the deal should still be of interest to you - Amazon US and GameStop’s price cuts could be seen as simply a price war between the two retailers, but with Amazon UK now joining in on the discount, it does seem like retailers are discounting ahead of an E3 price drop, something that has happened in the past.

Video: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Powers Up for PlayStation 3

350°
130w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has posted up a video today spotlighting Tekken Tag Tournament 2 powering up for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!

To quote: Though Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has been available in arcades since earlier this year in the States (and back into September in Japan), the revamped PS3 version brings numerous new characters and a new training mode that re-imagines the series' previously established mini-games.

While the main fighting mechanics of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feel familiar to anyone acquainted with the series' staccato combat style, the console version introduces a few new ways to lock horns with worthy competitors.

You can now fight opponents in several configurations - two against two, two against one, and one against one - and each of these modes is available at any time.

In matches that pit one character against two, the disadvantaged player receives a more generous life bar but obviously cannot switch fighters when the going gets rough. Conversely, the player with two fighters will have to pay close attention; in true Tekken tag form, you'll lose the round if either character is KO'd.





During the Namco Bandai Gamer's Day, the developers...

130w ago - Lead Designer Rowan Parker has announced today on Sony's PlayStation Blog that PixelJunk 4am will be hitting PSN on May 15, with a Beta coming soon as well!

To quote: We've been developing PixelJunk 4am for quite some time now.

It's hard to know if you're done with no other measuring sticks lying around to use as a gauge, however I think we're almost there! I'll just leave this here.

PixelJunk 4am and the free PixelJunk 4am - Viewer will be released and available for download on the PlayStation Store from May 15th.

Lots of you have been asking for more details regarding the kind of 'actual' musical freedom you can look forward to using with your PlayStation Move. So here we go.

We've created various different events you can choose from to play live. Different events will present you with different mixes of songs, visualizers and a new mood to go with each one. You then take this event live on PSN and make it your own, crafting and performing it however you want.

Here's some numbers for everyone. Each song has 4 track instruments you can use: a Drum, Bass, Rhythm and Synth. Each track then has 4 different looping samples and four one-shot sounds in space around you that you can use.

250°
131w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has confirmed today that they will be publishing the upcoming video game entitled Dragon's Crown for both PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: You know how you're really excited for something and then something happens and you get even more excited?

Like that time you found out they were making a movie for The Hobbit and you were excited... but kinda bummed that Peter Jackson wouldn't be directing it.

But guess what happened: Peter Jackson announced that he would in fact direct it, and you got a heck of a lot more excited. Right?

Remember Dragon's Crown, the next project from Vanillaware announced at last E3, a multiplayer action RPG with beautiful hand-drawn visuals slated to come to PS3 and PS Vita?

BREAKING NEWS: Atlus is taking over publishing duties in Japan and North America! What's more, key (and very talented) members of the Atlus internal development team will be involved with the project as producer(s).

You know, some of the people who've worked on games in the critically acclaimed Persona series. Yeah, we know: we're stoked, too!

What does this mean for the game? For one, it means that it's going to be better than ever. It will, however, come a bit later than originally...

131w ago - Following up on their previous update, today the Spanish PlayStation 3 developers at DemonHades have made available a demonstration video of JFW-DH 3.56 MA PS3 CFW running PSX iSOs including Resident Evil through emulation by the Dynarec system.

To quote from Chekco, roughly translated: Hello friends, today I come to present a powerful tool for Dynarec devs exclusively for our JFW.

Dynarec MA is a port to the old and powerful touch-up system made by AerialX lv2 (Creator of PSL1GHT) over there in 2010 as many touristy even ignore the fact that not everything old is useless, Kammy in the parcheaba 3.41 lv2 to get it ready to run dynamic code recompilation (known by many developers as Dynarecs).

In 3.41 was reached even shuffling dreamcast emulator but the future of this was not very fast because this kind of thing that limited many developers but had kammy is also possible to debug easily (Receive Printfs by socat network) besides having the ability to run JIT code (Anonymous could put to good use to this in his Emulator which only rulaba Dynarec well (best speed close to the full-speed) on 3.41 so far...)

This video shows how MA356 supports the new or revamped Dynarec,...
