131w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation DLC is coming to PS3 on June 10, 2011.
To quote: Hopefully everybody enjoyed the double XP period for Call of Duty: Black Ops in May - neither Treyarch nor Activision wanted to see any of the PS3 fans miss out just because of the technical issues.
Now the next round of Black Ops action is locked and loaded: the long-awaited Escalation DLC pack will be available in the PlayStation Store on Friday, June 10th.
Escalation features five big chunks of content - four multiplayer maps and one star-studded Zombies experience unlike any other. For fans of competitive combat, your new battlegrounds await:
• HOTEL takes the sunny splendor of a luxirous Cuban casino resort and turns it into a bullet-riddled war zone. Details like the blown casino safe and poolside bar offer some unusual cover for run-and-gunners, but thanks to the high vantage points at opposite ends, it's also a great map for snipers.
• Why not visit the ZOO? The big cats and deadly reptiles left this abandoned Russian animal park long ago, but the overgrown, dilapidated facility still plays host to the...
131w ago - PlayStation Network Sr. Director Susan Panico has announced that Sony's Welcome Back Program is available now, with details as follows:
We're so excited to welcome you back to PlayStation Network. With the PlayStation Store back online, we've been getting all caught up this week, having launched an abundance of amazing content for download on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable devices across games, movies, themes and DLC.
Today, we're excited to launch the Welcome Back program to thank you for your loyalty, and below, we've got what you need in order to get access to the included content. So, here's a list of questions about the program. If you don't see your question below, mention it in the comments and we'll do our best to provide an answer.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding as we restored the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services - your support has meant a lot to us and is greatly appreciated.
Q: What's in the Welcome Back Program?
A: To start, all PSN members who had signed up before the outage (April 20, 2011) will be able to select two games for the PS3 and two games for the PSP systems.
For PS3 owners, go to the 'Welcome Back' section in the PlayStation Store, and select 2 titles from the following...
In this game, you control a robot located within an interstellar spaceship consisting of several decks connected by elevators.
The aim of the game is to destroy all enemy robots by either shooting them or seizing control over them by creating connections in a short subgame of electric circuits.
To quote: "I've been working for a while on porting Freedroid Classic to SDL_PSL1GHT, and now
I think it works well enough to release some packages.
Freedroid is an open-source port of Andrew Braybrook's brillant C64 game Paradroid. This is the "Classic" variant, which actually plays like the original, not the "RPG" which is like a completely different game."
131w ago - Zipper Interactive Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has welcomed fans back to SOCOM 4 on the PS3 today and announced they are issuing free maps and weapons to PlayStation Plus users.
To quote: We're very happy today to announce that SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs is now offering free maps and weapons to all PS Plus users!
You might remember that we gave away the classic SOCOM map "Abandoned" and a couple of exclusive shotguns as an incentive to pre-order the game through GameStop. All PlayStation Plus users can now download "Abandoned" and the shotguns free for the next month!
For those of you without Plus yet, don't worry-your time will come shortly. Recall the blog announcement a couple weeks back announcing that, as a token of appreciation, the PlayStation Network will be giving all users 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership, coming soon. After a month of PlayStation Plus availability, "Abandoned" and the shotguns will continue to be available for SOCOM Pro members.
But that's not all. When we announced SOCOM Pro shortly before SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs hit stores, we promised that we'd be delivering the oft-requested M16 and AK-47 shortly after release. We're happy today to not only say that they're almost here, but that they're being...
