320w ago - To quote RichieJr of PS3Trophies (linked above):

Fallout 3 Trophies are out! And a lot sooner than most of you were expecting too! The 1.10 patch is now available for download, so you can start earning those sweet, sweet trophies. Now most of you can actually play the game instead of waiting for trophies

Thanks to MizuhoChan for first discovering the patch.

Note: It seems that the patch isn't available in a lot of areas. We're not sure why some of you can get it and some of you can't, all we can say is you're extremely lucky if you've got it. Hopefully it won't be too long before trophies are out for all.
 

PowerMad Review of Fallout 3 for the PlayStation 3 Console

100°
320w ago - Resistance 2, Gears of War 2, and Little Big Planet, To me? Those are filler compared to the massive game known as Fallout 3.

This game could easily be called game of the year 2008 by everyone. Why? Because of 2 words, Open Environment. Fallout 3 may not have Online game play, or a chainsaw to hack people up with (Actually it does =D), but it does have what I consider to be the MOST important aspect of games this generation for the PlayStation 3.

Free roaming games have been my personal favorite from the start. But Fallout 3 goes above and beyond the call of duty, making a map nearly the size of Oblivion. But not only that, they gave us guns and a first person view. Making this the first game I have ever seen that is free roaming AND a first person shooter.

As for the plot, Your "born" in a "vault" which is a nuclear fallout shelter, you grow up until you leave the vault at 19. Inside the Vault you decide your Gender, Character looks, S.P.E.C.I.A.L., Skills, and a small amount of your Karma.

After you leave the vault you can pretty much do whatever you please. As you continue however, your level will advance through "experience points". This is where the RPG aspect of the game comes in. Every time you "Level up" You get a set amount of skill points, as well as 1 free perk. These...
 

Sony Finally Gets the PlayStation 3 Out of the Gutter

300°
320w ago - It's been a long time coming for Sony; gaining the 300k mark for the PS3, that is. The latter part of this year wasn't looking too good for the big black box, but some holiday consumer spending put some ample steam under the PS3's numbers for November.

The Associated Press reported some hefty numbers from the NPD, all the way across the board: for the Wii, the Xbox 360 and the PS3.

Nintendo, as usual, ranked number one with console sales for the Wii. Nintendo's motion-movement killer sold an estimated 2 million units. The Xbox 360 wasn't too far behind, though it looks sad for Microsoft because the Xbox 360 [Arcade] sells for less than the Wii and it only managed a respectable, yet disappointing 836,000 SKUs sold.

It was the PlayStation 3 that showed signs of life, despite selling a little less than half of the 360's numbers. Sony's console did an impressive 378,000 units for the month of November, and considering that this is the PS3 we're talking about (and no price drop in sight) that's not half bad.

Heck, the PS3 actually passed up the PS2 with flying colors -- the last gen system is finally showing its age (and uselessness) with consumers purchasing only 206,000 units last...
 

Metal Gear Solid Mobile Sneaks Out on N-Gage

50°
320w ago - Showing what a master spy he is, Solid Snake - protagonist of stealth-'em-up Metal Gear Solid Mobile - sneaked out onto the N-Gage showroom yesterday evening when we were least prepared for it.

While the majority of the (almost) ever-vigilant Pocket Gamer staff were drinking themselves into a stupor at the PG chrimbo bash, Konami made its move.

"Metal Gear Solid Mobile features dramatic 3D art displays and camera work that greatly surpasses the quality standard of today's mobile games. Players will face the extreme tension of solitary infiltration in this version of the tactical espionage action game." Said a spokesman, just prior to snapping our neck and scrambling back into the shadows.

Metal Gear Solid Mobile is set between Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, which were released on the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 respectively. The series eschews the usual run-and-gun gameplay in favour of a more considered, stealthy approach.

To complement the release, official website N-Gage.com has posted a handy who's who guide so that new players can keep track of what on earth is going in Konami's latest opus.

For those who haven't played a Metal Gear Solid game before, each title features a labyrinthine plot that's equal parts 24 and Eastenders....
