195w ago - VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey has posted up this week's Sony PS3 update today, as follows:
We have the new Lady Gaga ft Beyoncé video "Telephone" live... It is a monster epic 9 minute video which was directed by the same guy that did The Prodigy's "Smack My Bi--h Up" so it has something for everyone.
We also have interviews from Paloma Faith, Crookers, LMFAO, Miike Snow all coming up over the next 2 weeks! Plus lots more over the next month including Passion Pit, Bashy, Bullet For My Valentine and Craig David!
One To Watch - Two Door Cinema Club (UK, Ireland)
Check out Northern Irish electropopindierockers Two Door Cinema Club signed to the uber cool French label Kitsuné with all their videos including their new single 'Undercover Martyn'.
One To Watch - Ellie Goulding (Excluding UK, Ireland)
With everyone singing her praises, a brilliant album and a string of (in my opinion) even better remixes of her singles. Ellie is definitely one to watch. Featuring new video "Starry Eyed".
Beverley Knight Exclusive Interview
Artist Of The Week - Black Eyed Peas (Selected Countries)
215w ago - Treyarch Community Manager Josh Olin announced today that Call of Duty: World at War PS3 Map Packs are 50% off for a limited time, and revealed news of new CoD playlists as well.
To quote: For one week only (offer ending November 1, 2009), Call of Duty: World at War Map Packs 1, 2, and 3 for PS3 will be half-off in the PlayStation Store (only available in North America).
So if you are missing one, we hope this makes it a bit easier to complete your collection!
With this, we're announcing some important playlist changes you'll want to take note of:
• Hardcore HQ: The addition of Hardcore Headquarters to the Hardcore playlists has taken effect, by popular demand.
• Team Flags: In the MAP PACK category, the old "Team Objective" playlist has been removed, and replaced with two playlists; Team Flags being one of them (CTF, Domination, and War).
• Team Objectives: Also in the MAP PACK category, the counterpart to Team Flags is this new playlist, Team Objectives (S&D, HQ, and Sabotage).
• Also, all 3 map packs are now in the MAP PACK rotation. So if you want to play only new content, but are tired of the same 3 maps, this will hopefully be a happy medium for you =).
Finally, we've turned on Double-XP which will also end Monday, November...
259w ago - SCEA's Associate Product Manager Kristin Neirinckx has shared the second how-to today via PS Blog as follows:
I'm sure your friends and family members were seriously impressed with your photo slideshow skills you learned on Friday. Similar to that, today we will learn how to import a CD and create a playlist using your favorite music.
It's a little special today because we have two videos instead of one. So now you will be ready in case you want to put together a mix for your New Year's Eve party or create a soundtrack for your photo slideshow. Have fun!
275w ago - According to Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward's director of communications, the team has an Xbox Live and PlayStation Network promotion in the pipeline for the weekend of September 13th. Exact details of the promotion haven't yet been revealed, but Bowling stated that double-experience points will be on offer for those itching to raise their in-game rank quickly.
More interesting, however, is the fact that Infinity Ward's developers are pushing hard to complete their new playlist updates in time for the promotion - making it all one-big promotion, says Bowling.
Should the team manage to get it done, and certified by both Microsoft and Sony, we could see some of the following playlists next weekend. Be aware, though, that Bowling has stated that the following list is far from final, and there's currently no telling what we'll receive.
To quote: Back from PAX means back to work, and while it's a short week thanks to Labor Day it's the one time I wish it wasn't because I have a lot of stuff to get done. I'm currently working on getting everything organized and together for an upcoming Xbox Live / PSN promotion we have coming up the weekend of Sept. 13th - 14th.
Which isn't this weekend, but next weekend. I will have exact details on what it is in the near future but...
