Mirror's Edge PlayStation Network Demo Delayed

50°
320w ago - Swedish company Dice are most well known for their now, almost legendary, Battlefield series.

However, being fed up with doing the same old thing, they've been hard at developing cyberpunk FPR, (First Person Runner), Mirrors Edge for PS3, Xbox 360 and P.C.

Last week rumors on the net began to surface, regarding the release of a Mirror's Edge demo onto the PSN. We were all quite disappointed last Thursday when this turned out to be nothing more than open speculation.

BUT... There is a demo of Mirrors Edge... And it is coming to you...

On November 2nd unfortunately, just one week prior to the game's North American release date of November 11th. Still it's better to at least know that it is on the way, than to be endlessly wondering.

Gives me a bit more time to get back into shape if i'm gonna be running everywhere!
 

Forget the PS4 Rumors: PlayStation 3 will Keep Us Busy for Years

550°
320w ago - Just bought a PlayStation 3 console when I read the rumors of a PlayStation 4 coming out soon and all the mind blowing possibilities of the theoretically new console.

I could barely afford the PS3 much less worry about what its going to cost for a PS4. But, based on what Paul Holman (Sony Vice President of Technology) told TechEBlog in 2006, the PS4 will not be out until at least 2010.

Then there's the rumor that the future PS4 will use the same existing cell processor that the current PS3 uses, according to a Japanese tech news site PC Watch. I'm not sure about that because if this rumor does prove to be true, I'd be sorely disappointed.

For the most part, why invest in all these upgrades for the PS3 coming out soon only to purchase a PS4 which as we experienced with the PS3, having limited to no backwards playability again?

They just came out with a PS3 Bluetooth headset for the console, not to mention a possible controller that will function like the controllers of a Wii.

Sony is still upgrading the...
 

BioShock for PlayStation 3 - First Impressions

500°
320w ago - So I make no secret of the fact I LOVE Bioshock. It was my game of the year last year by a long way. Yeah COD4 was a great game and I am still playing that. Halo Jesus really was not the game it should of been - please don't flame me it's just my opinion and Mass Effect had too many little issues. So Bioshock really stood out for me.

So it was with great delight that I found out it was coming to my shiny black paperweight. The trouble is, would it play well on the PS3?

Well the demo hit the PSN (all regions thanks you 2k/Sony!) and I downloaded it as soon as I got home. It took a little under and hour to drop down the 1.8GB demo (holy crap demos are getting bigger !) and around ten minutes to install (go figure!).

It was with real trepidation that I launched the game and waited for the menu to roll up. First thing you notice is just how many teams worked on this game! 2K Boston, 2K Australia, Digital Extremes etc - That never sounds good!

I hit the menu, choose my game type and launch the game. The intro sequence plays out and looks just as good at the 360 version, perhaps a little higher res and cleaner. The plane ditches (spoiler!) and you struggle tot he surface - here we go, lets see if it starts to chug - No, one of my favorite parts of the game graphically looks just...
