Sony Unveils Companies that will Initially use PlayStation Home

50°
302w ago - With PlayStation Home on the way soon (at least we hope it is, but we would not bet money on it), Sony has shown an image at TGS 2008 that shows what companies they are working with to include features in Home.

Sony did not reveal what each companies would be doing what, so some could just be sticking their logo on in-game items, while others may going all out and creating rooms to go hand in hand with upcoming game.

Regardless, the list of companies looks interesting, with many of the big names in the industry looking to offer something to the service.

However, we have to say the lack of a SquareEnix logo is very surprising.
 

Uncharted Waters Setting Sail on PlayStation 3 Next Year

50°
302w ago - Update: The PS3 version will feature enhanced visuals and a new interface. Now it appears that the game might use the same servers, but that hasn't been confirmed.

Koei's PC title Uncharted Waters will be sailing swiftly onto PS3 in 2009.

Not to be confused with the similarly named jungle-romp Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, in Uncharted Waters Online, you take on the role of a character from one of Europe's seafaring nations including Portugal, Spain, England, and more.

From your base in Lisbon, Seville, London, or another of the headquarter cities, you may choose the path of the adventurer, the merchant, or the soldier and make your fortune on the seas.

When it launches, the game will be hosted on the same servers as the PC iteration. We'll have more for you on Uncharted Waters soon.

303w ago - Per Ro Hernandez (PLAYSTATION Store Team) via PS Blog today:

The last time I posted it was regarding our special E3 section on the PlayStation Store. This time around I wanted to tell you about a new offering that you'll see tomorrow.

In addition to all the free themes you've already been getting and will continue to get on the PlayStation Store now, you'll have the option to upgrade and purchase premium themes to customize the look of your PS3's XMB.

We have linked up with a few partners, Smobile & Disruptive Media Publishers, to distribute premium themes from PlayStation Network.

They have content offerings that range in type from NCAA College licenses to beauties on the beach to original cartoons and anime. These themes were created specifically for the PS3 and have special backgrounds, XMB icons and, in some cases, sounds.

We have created a new "Premium Themes" section under Themes & Wallpapers for you to easily access this content. Also, for each theme, there is preview option that allows you to view images of the theme prior to making your decision.

We plan to offer approximately 6-10 new "Premium Themes" a month. So be sure to check back often to browse the newest in premium theme content.

Have a good rest...
