To quote, roughly translated: Nintendo has released the first system update for the Nintendo DSi. In version 1.4 the DSi Shop comes out with a new version and an update of the Nintendo DSi Browser can be downloaded.

The improvements that have been made, are a slightly better browsing speed and some security updates.

Killzone 2 Flash & Thunder Map Pack Out Today for PlayStation 3

100°
265w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Sebastian Downie has announced that the Killzone 2 Flash & Thunder Map Pack will be available today for PlayStation 3.

To quote: With the release of the second Killzone 2 downloadable content pack "Flash & Thunder" on PlayStation Store today, we have been able to uncover Helghast documentation on their movements in the newest maps: Southern Hills and Beachhead.

These two maps might be familiar to veterans of the first Killzone on PS2, but they have been completely reworked and re-imagined to suit the PLAYSTATION 3 experience. With that in mind, here's a report from the frontlines on how to survive the Southern Hills and nuclear attack!





Helghast Field Manual 15: Surviving the Southern Hills

The treacherous ISA forces have resorted to using nuclear devices in their futile efforts to invade our beloved home-planet of Helghan. This cowardly act will not go unpunished and the Helghast High Command training corps has prepared a field manual to ensure its loyal soldiers do not die in vain. Read the below carefully as it could be the difference between your survival of a nuclear attack and turning into a burning corpse.

1. When you hear the siren, drop whatever you are doing. Just run like...
 

Rumor: Mirror's Edge 2D Flash Game Coming to iPhone?

50°
267w ago - Have you played the 2D Mirror's Edge flash game?

If not you are missing one of the best platform games of recent memory. The animation is silky smooth, the level designs are perfectly tuned - you can sprint through them creating fluid runs or you can explore the city's verticality for the numerous hidden satchels.

We feel very strongly that this game is just begging for an iPort. The controls are as simple as left, right, up, down and jump. If SEGA can pull it off with a shonky Sonic port there is no reason why the controls shouldn't excel on the iPhone.

Graphically its right where it needs to be, bold and colourful with superb presentation. We can't think of any reason why this shouldn't get an App Store release, can you?

We sent a tweet to Craig "Law" Wien at EA Mobile, as follows: "Any chance of bringing THIS (MirrorsEdge2D.com) to the iPhone? Please?"

To which came the [Register or Login to view links]: "Yah, you guys would be into that game on the iPhone?"

Only time will tell for sure, but here is to hoping it happens!
 

Killzone 2 Flash and Thunder Pack Arriving on June 11, 2009

268w ago - Sony Associate Product Marketing Manager TJ Consunji announced today that the Killzone 2 Flash and Thunder DLC Pack will be arriving on June 11, 2009, as follows:

The next Killzone 2 DLC goes "retro" with the release of the "Flash and Thunder" pack arriving after E3. Here's a sneak peek as to what you can expect.

[Register or Login to view links] takes us back on a nostalgic journey with fan favorites from the first Killzone: Beach Head and Southern Hills. Both levels have been completely re-envisioned with the Killzone 2 engine and technology.

In Beach Head, the Helghast land on the sandy Vektan beaches forcing the ISA to defend their stronghold. Torrential rain and gale-force winds batter the landscape, with the water-filled craters supplying only limited cover. This harsh terrain requires you to keep your "head on a swivel" as enemies lurk around every corner.

Southern Hills takes the battle to a central Helghast base camp located on a hilltop. This version has been beefed up considerably over the original Killzone counterpart, with smaller structures offering plenty of hiding places that lend itself well to close quarters combat and long range sniping. Take cover when you hear alarms going off, as there might be a radioactive surprise...
