Max Now Less Payne-Ful, Re-cut to get PG-13 Rating

50°
321w ago - Anyone who had been hoping that the big screen version of the hit videogame Max Payne would be a hardcore, R-rated release will be very disappointed by the following news.

GameDaily reports that Max Payne, a 20th Century Fox release, has been re-cut to attain a broader audience-friendly PG-13 rating. The John Moore-directed film had initially earned an "R" rating from the Motion Picture Association of America due to its violent content.

What's notable, however, is that this time it was the director and not the studio forcing the issue of getting the more audience-friendly PG-13 rating.




"I didn't have to change much. We trimmed some frames more for the sake of trimming frames than anything, but we got the rating without any major changes at all," Moore told GameDaily.

"I'm a little surprised that we changed their minds, effectively, but I'm happy about it. It proves that if you stick to your guns and you have the creative, and dare I say moral sense, that you're in the right, that you can get the right thing done."
 

PSP Firmware 5.0 BETA Now Available for Developers

50°
321w ago - French site PSPGen (linked above) is reporting to have received PSP Firmware 5.0 BETA, which is expected to have a new browser and direct access to the PlayStation store, in order to test and adapt games in response to it.

A rough translation: This BETA version of firmware 5.00 bringing no change in visual XMB and it is therefore difficult to know what new features have been added at first glance.

We have therefore sought a little further and we eventually find that this new firmware has three major innovations including:

- Access to PlayStation Network
Players will be able to connect to PSN Sony. The future games developed on the PSP will allow players to compete via the PSN. How? This is still a bit dark because the firmware development contains only the bare minimum that the developers need and thus the XMB is "light" icons deemed useless to them by Sony (As the menu research, for example ...)

Beyond this certainty, this may suggest that the PSP, like his little sister, the PS3 will see its list of friends connected, and perhaps even to communicate directly to play online. Let's be crazy and imagine that Sony even includes the option for players to access the PSP system trophies.

Jack Thompson is now Permanently Disbarred

250°
322w ago - Is it finally game over for Florida lawyer and violent video game opponent Jack Thompson?

Judgment has been entered in the case that started last year and came to a head when Judge Dava Tunis recommended permanent disbarment for the bombastic, showboating law man. The court has approved the report and has ordered that Jack Thompson is officially disbarred as of 30 days from today.

To quote: The Court approves the corrected referee's report and John Bruce Thompson is permanently disbarred, effective thirty days from the date of this order so that respondent can close out his practice and protect the interests of existing clients.

If respondent notifies the Court in writing that he is no longer practicing and does not need the thirty days to protect existing clients, this Court will enter an order making the permanent disbarment effective immediately. Respondent shall accept no new business from the date this order is filed.

Note that Thompson still has a chance for a retrial, only due to court sanctions the motion must me submitted by a member of the Florida Bar in good standing, and I don't know that anyone wants to touch this one.

It's also worth noting that along with disbarment, Thompson has been ordered to reimburse the Florida Bar fees amounting...
