156w ago - Sony's Manager of Content Services Nino Kalogeropoulos has shared details of Australia's new PSN video store today alongside highlights of the exclusive OZ community event.
To quote: A special community event entitled 'PlayStation Life in 2010′ was held on May 18th at an exclusive location at Sydney's Coogee Beach, to usher in the arrival of the PlayStation Network video delivery service for Australia. Yay!
Now available, the PS Video Store allows Aussie PS3 and PSP owners to rent or buy hundreds of SD and HD movies, including the latest releases like Avatar, Inglourious Basterds, Up In The Air, Ninja Assassin, Sherlock Holmes, and Twilight New Moon.
New movies will be added to the Store on a weekly basis for the movie junkies in us all, and you can browse the available movies right here on the new PS Movies Web area.
Hollywood Actress Radha Mitchell (star of the recent film 'The Surrogates' alongside Bruce Willis) was a special guest at the event, along with Alison Turner, the Marketing Director of Sony Network Entertainment, and Michael Ephraim, Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia.
But the PS Video store isn't the only product that was experienced at this exclusive...
157w ago - Yesterday we saw the launch trailer for Red Dead Redemption on PS3, and today Examiner.com (linked above) has revealed that the PlayStation 3 version will be getting some exclusive content similar to what was done in Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Additionally, the rear box art indicates Red Dead Redemption will require 600MB of PS3 HDD space for the installation.
To quote: "Very similar to Batman: Arkham Asylum, which had the exclusive feature of playing as the Joker, Red Dead Redemption will also feature some exclusive to hopefully sway the consumers mind towards the PS3 version.
It did work with Batman and the title ended up outselling the Xbox 360 likely due to that reason.
The exclusive content will be Solomon's Folly Gang Hideout and Walton Gang Outfit - according to the retail box. The content is included for free and packed in the game's casing."
157w ago - Capcom's European Brand Manager Richard Earl has unveiled a PS3 exclusive coming to Lost Planet 2 today- Helghast Troops!
To quote: Hot on the heels of the Monster Hunter skin announcement earlier in the week we now have more very special guests making their presence felt on the PS3 version of Lost Planet 2...
E.D.N.III is a harsh place, a planet where you must fight against vicious akrid and the hostile elements. It takes a particularly double hard bastard to take on these odds and they don't come much tougher than the Helghast Assault and Helghast Scout troops.
The most feared units from Killzone now get to take on Lost Planet 2's pirate factions and the deadly giant Akrid. These skins will be available to download for free on PSN from the end of June.
I also wanted to say thanks to all of you who posted comments on my last post. In answer to the question from LAClennell, yes, Frank West is also available in the PS3 version of the game!
158w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has shared a video dubbed "It's a Rap!" showcasing the PS3 Exclusive video game 3D Dot Game Heroes.
To quote: To celebrate the game's release, we're also releasing a fifth video vignette.
Not only does it show off the mini-games you'll be distracted by (dooming the poor citizens of Dotnia to never being rescued from the clutches of Dark Bishop Fuelle), but it also happens to be the most radical video we've put out for the game to date.
So, why should you pick up 3D Dot Game Heroes? Is it safe to assume "because it's awesome" isn't quite enough information? Well, how about the following list of things, bulleted for your convenience (and mine):
• An awesome marriage of old-school 8- and 16-bit sprite style art (in beautiful 3D, mind you) with the full power of the PlayStation 3 system.
• A retro-yet-modern soundtrack, filled with addictive tunes that you'll be annoying people in public spaces with your involuntary humming for quite some time.
• A huge, lush kingdom to explore. Dotnia is filled with secrets, large dungeons, powerful bosses, quests to solve, and hilarious characters. Search every nook and cranny; you're bound...
