Mass Effect 3: N7 Weekly Challenges Come to PSN This Weekend

50°
134w ago - Today Bioware Community Manager Eduardo Vasconcellos has announced that Mass Effect 3: N7 weekly challenges are coming to PSN this weekend!

To quote: Priority transmission to alliance soldiers of the playstation network: reinforcements are coming...

From: Admiral Steven Hackett, Citadel Allied Command
Re: Operation EXORCIST
Confidentiality Classification: XA-PRIME
Distribution: N7 Forces Only

Soldiers of the Milky Way - By now it is no secret that the Reaper War has had its share of logistical SNAFUs. It is to the galaxy's credit that, when we put out the call for volunteers, we were answered by individuals of every species from Citadel, Traverse, Terminus space, and most significantly for this operation, the PlayStation Network.

Unfortunately, the diversity of equipment sources meant our allies ran into hardware and software incompatibilities.

These brave men and women have been fighting beside you and, in doing so, have gone above and beyond normal duty. Because their units were not properly tracked, they fought without pay and sometimes without proper training, equipment, even rations. It is a mark of their character that these warriors of the PlayStation Network took the grave task set before us and stuck it out through sheer determination.
 

Video: Starhawk: How to Create an Epic Soundtrack for PS3

100°
134w ago - Starhawk Score Producer Matt Levine has posted up a video today spotlighting how to create an epic soundtrack for PS3 titles.

To quote: When [Register or Login to view links]'s President Dylan Jobe came to us to discuss the musical score for Starhawk, he had one of the best quotes I've ever heard from a game director:

"The music should not simulate combat; it should remind you what you're fighting for."

It is rare for so many things to come together on a project, but Starhawk has proven to be a perfect storm for creating a truly inspirational score. With a great story, a visionary developer, a brilliant composer, The Skywalker Symphony Orchestra, and a fantastic collection of soloists, we knew that this score would be something really special.

Chris Lennertz's score is bursting with character and memorable themes. Lyrical melodies soar through the orchestra, juxtaposed against feral percussion, gritty guitars, ethnic vocals and an eclectic mix of exotic wind instruments, each contributing to a score that is as memorable as it is unique.





At its core, the story is a classic western tale of two brothers torn apart by a tragic event....

Video: Codemasters Answers DiRT Showdown PS3 Questions

50°
134w ago - Today Community Manager Ian Webster at Codemasters has answered some popular DiRT Showdown PS3 questions alongside sharing a new video trailer below.

To quote: What with the release of DiRT Showdown on PS3 inching ever closer, we turned to twitter to find out what you guys need to know about the game, and then had those questions answered by Mike Chapman, Senior Designer on the game.

Is this just something to keep us going until Dirt 4?

It has to be said that the idea for a game like DiRT Showdown has been in the studio's collective mind for some time. After we finished work on DiRT 3, we knew that the time was right for the DiRT team to explore some new avenues.

First and foremost though, the game will be an exciting DiRT experience in its own right and we're confident that our existing fans will appreciate the direction we've taken, especially with what that means for future games in the series.

DiRT franchise is awesome! Thoroughly love the way it's progressed. Would you guys ever return to GRiD?

It's great to see that, years after its release, the original GRID is still such a popular game and that people have hopes for a sequel.

Matching and exceeding expectations would of course be our highest priority...
 

Rumor: Sony PS3 Blu-ray Drive Emulation PCB in Development

1300°
134w ago - Today we received word from Dutch site [Register or Login to view links] (ConsoleWinkel) of a rumor that a Sony PS3 Blu-ray drive emulation PCB is currently in development which will allow users to unlock their PlayStation 3 console without the use of Custom Firmware or dongles.

Reportedly they have been in contact with [Register or Login to view links] who stated a team (possibly the Wasabi or Drivekey team) is working on the PS3 Blu-ray drive emulation PCB that is slated for release later this year.

They have also speculated via e-mail that the project has been kept under tight wraps due to Sony being unable to stop this new PS3 hack via Firmware updates, meaning once it becomes public Sony's legal team will be on the warpath in full force.

Below are some concept pictures (not actual finished product pictures) from their site and the details, roughly translated as follows:

"PlayStation 3 drive emulation

No hacking, no flashing, no modding. Emulation is the future. A team is currently working on a new hack for the PlayStation 3.

The Blu-ray player, Sony's PCB has been cracked and costs can thus be gekloont. The team probably Wasabi or Wiikey team...
