Download size is 942mb. To quote Capcom's Shawn Baxter:
Hey everyone, I'm Shawn Baxter (Snow) from Capcom-Unity. Our amazing Resident Evil 5 Demo goes live today on PSN, so I thought I'd tease you a bit with some of the cool things to expect, whether you're an old fan or new to the series.
One of the first things I noticed is how good the game looks. It's hard to get by the beauty RE5 has to offer. Better still, you get to play through two beautiful stages in the demo. Aside from the sweet graphics, there's plenty more that the demo has to offer.
For those new to the series, the controls can seem a bit different than you may expect. The RE brand has always forced you to take your time, stop while shooting, and conserve your ammo. It really helps add a sense of tension a normal shooter can't offer. But to help those who are new to the world of RE, we have new control types that ease things up a bit. M
y favorite is Type A, which is probably best if you're a fan of the previous games, especially RE4. Next on my list is Type D, which I find myself loving more and more. Type D is best if you're new to the game, and it offers something the...
256w ago - Creat Studios Producer Olga Sokolova shared the following today via PS Blog:
Magic Ball (available today, January 15 for $9.99 on the PS Store) is another addictive game from Creat Studios and TikGames and it's filled with fast action, great humor and giggle-inducing fun.
While the game doesn't have an overall storyline like Cuboid, we have created comedic scenes for each level - so in a way, each level has its own little story! Each of the scenes is divided between two visual themes - Pirates and Knights - and each theme has its own mini-story scenes.
Magic Ball boasts a vast number of trophies that players can try and achieve - each of the trophies requires the player to overcome a specific challenge. It was a blast trying to come up with the trophies, and we tried to keep a lot of them consistent with the humorous themes of Magic Ball.
For example, we have the "25 in a row" trophy where you need to complete 25 levels in a row and several "Goodbye Cruel World" trophies where the player needs to pick up 5 skulls while completing the level.
One of the strategic elements of Magic Ball is the...

260w ago - Microsoft is due to issue a patch to fix a security flaw believed to have affected as many as 10,000 Web sites.
The emergency patch should be available from 1800 GMT on 17 December, Microsoft has said.
The flaw in Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser could allow criminals to take control of people's computers and steal passwords.
Internet Explorer is used by the vast majority of computer users and the flaw could affect all versions of it.
So far the vulnerability has affected only machines running Internet Explorer 7.
According to Rick Ferguson, a senior security adviser at security firm Trend Micro, the flaw has so far been used to steal gaming passwords but more sensitive data could be at risk until the security update is installed.
"It is inevitable that it will be adapted by criminals. It's just a question of modifying the payload the trojan installs," he said.
It is relatively unusual for Microsoft to issue what it calls an "out-of-band" security bulletin and experts are reading the decision to rush out a patch as evidence of the potential danger of the flaw.
