PlayStation Home: About Clubhouses, and the Not-PSP Interface

50°
308w ago - A quick interview with a rep from SCEA clarifies a few things about PlayStation Home. It won't change your life at Home, but it's a good read if you want to satisfy your curiosity.

Early on, Sony presented the virtual PSP as the navigation interface for PlayStation Home, but last month though, they revealed that this was no longer the case. SCEA explains:

We felt that PlayStation Home deserved its own navigation device, so we built a user interface that was dedicated to just that purpose. We have found the new user interface to generally be more intuitive for many of our users.

SCEA also clarified a few things about Clubhouses, in case you didn't already know about how it works:

A PlayStation Home user can be a member of up to five clubs (meaning they can be leaders or members of five clubs).

Every club has one leader (the owner who purchased the club [this costs $4.99]), up to four sub-leaders and up to 32 members.

In functionality, they work similarly to other personal spaces such as your apartment with some additional features such as a bulletin board where the leader, and optionally the sub-leaders, can leave messages for the whole club to read, such as tournament announcements or meeting times.

As with many aspects of PlayStation Home,...

Fallout 3 Trophies are out! And a lot sooner than most of you were expecting too! The 1.10 patch is now available for download, so you can start earning those sweet, sweet trophies. Now most of you can actually play the game instead of waiting for trophies

Thanks to MizuhoChan for first discovering the patch.

PowerMad Review of Fallout 3 for the PlayStation 3 Console

100°
310w ago - Resistance 2, Gears of War 2, and Little Big Planet, To me? Those are filler compared to the massive game known as Fallout 3.

This game could easily be called game of the year 2008 by everyone. Why? Because of 2 words, Open Environment. Fallout 3 may not have Online game play, or a chainsaw to hack people up with (Actually it does =D), but it does have what I consider to be the MOST important aspect of games this generation for the PlayStation 3.

Free roaming games have been my personal favorite from the start. But Fallout 3 goes above and beyond the call of duty, making a map nearly the size of Oblivion. But not only that, they gave us guns and a first person view. Making this the first game I have ever seen that is free roaming AND a first person shooter.

As for the plot, Your "born" in a "vault" which is a nuclear fallout shelter, you grow up until you leave the vault at 19. Inside the Vault you decide your Gender, Character looks, S.P.E.C.I.A.L., Skills, and a small amount of your Karma.

After you leave the vault you can pretty much do whatever you please. As you continue however, your level will advance through "experience points". This is where the RPG aspect of the game comes in. Every time you "Level up" You get a set amount of skill points, as well as 1 free perk. These...
 

Sony Finally Gets the PlayStation 3 Out of the Gutter

300°
310w ago - It's been a long time coming for Sony; gaining the 300k mark for the PS3, that is. The latter part of this year wasn't looking too good for the big black box, but some holiday consumer spending put some ample steam under the PS3's numbers for November.

The Associated Press reported some hefty numbers from the NPD, all the way across the board: for the Wii, the Xbox 360 and the PS3.

Nintendo, as usual, ranked number one with console sales for the Wii. Nintendo's motion-movement killer sold an estimated 2 million units. The Xbox 360 wasn't too far behind, though it looks sad for Microsoft because the Xbox 360 [Arcade] sells for less than the Wii and it only managed a respectable, yet disappointing 836,000 SKUs sold.

It was the PlayStation 3 that showed signs of life, despite selling a little less than half of the 360's numbers. Sony's console did an impressive 378,000 units for the month of November, and considering that this is the PS3 we're talking about (and no price drop in sight) that's not half bad.

Heck, the PS3 actually passed up the PS2 with flying colors -- the last gen system is finally showing its age (and uselessness) with consumers purchasing only 206,000 units last...
