PS3 Slim at GameStop, Best Buy Offers Games to Stop Trade-Ins

300°
283w ago - As reported last week, the PlayStation 3 Slim console is now available at GameStop.

When GameHeadzOnline.com (linked above) asked the manager about the PS3 Slim's early arrival, he told them the PS3 Slim consoles "came in today, and they have Sony's blessing to sell them."

In related news, [Register or Login to view links] is reporting that Best Buy is now offering free PS3 games to prevent standard PS3 trade-ins.

To quote: "An internal memo (below), verified independently by a number of employees at different stores, shows that Best Buy is offering people who come into the store to exchange recently purchased PlayStation 3's for the newly released PS3 Slim a choice of a free PlayStation 3 title and price match in lieu of the new slimmer, larger-hard-drive sporting console.

Due to the interest in the new Slim model, the memo warns, stores may see people trying to return their console for the newer model. Before doing the exchange, a store is allowed to offer a choice of a free copy of Infamous, MLB 09 The Show or Killzone 2.

250°
286w ago - The LittleBigPlanet GOTY (Game Of The Year) Edition Box Art has recently been uncovered by Kotaku (linked above), and appears to sport a lower price and offer $30 in downloadable content.

According to [Register or Login to view links], online retailer [Register or Login to view links] (dead link now) brought to light a few bits of information on the title which has since been taken down from the site completely.

To quote: While details on what that extra content thrown in for free will be aren't specified in the Amazon.com listing, the lower price and extra goodies really should convince you to pick up a copy of LittleBigPlanet already. I mean, have you seen how cute these Sackboy things are? Seriously. Just precious.

The original report on the LittleBigPlanet re-release indicated that "much" of the downloadable content already available would be bundled with the core game. Whether that includes the dozens of available downloadable costumes or simply some of the game's user-created levels is unclear. The "valued at" makes us wonder.

Amazon doesn't offer a date, but it's...
 

Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time Offers Pre-Rendered Graphics

100°
288w ago - Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time finally brings the graphical quality of pre-rendered CGI to video game consoles.

Insomniac's hard work has finally produced CGI quality graphics rendered in real-time on the PlayStation 3. Sure, it might not quite be at Wall-E level yet, but Toy Story 2 quality pre-rendered graphics have definately been reached.

To quote: Insomniac Games, who have produced more games for the PS3 than any other developer (Resistance 1, Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction, Resistance 2) brings their fourth game, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time (or what they like to call Clock Blockers) with an even more polished engine.

The pre-defined animation and limited scope of the cutscenes mean that Insomniac can pull more out of the PS3 for their real-time rendered cutscenes in A Crack in Time, though the gameplay graphics are just as spectacular.

The latest gameplay footage of A Crack in Time video is below also:
