137w ago - Marvel Studios Licensed Games Manager Chris Baker has revealed today a glimpse of the new Marvel PS3 games slated for unveiling at the NY Comic Con tomorrow.
To quote: New York Comic Con is in full swing now, and tomorrow morning's Marvel Games panel at 10:45 a.m. in Room 1A06 is going to be chock-full of reveals and further information about other new information already released this week, like the announcements of Captain America: Super Soldier and X-Men: Destiny.
In all, we're talking about eight total games at the panel, seven of which involve the PS3. Here's a game-by-game rundown of all the new information you can expect in the order we'll be discussing them at the panel:
EXCLUSIVE NEW INFO for Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions: Yeah, I know you've already played this one (you have, haven't you?!), but we're not done with Beenox's awesome trip through four Spidey universes yet.
In addition to having Creative Director Thomas Wilson answer some lingering questions posed by the Marvel gaming diehards at HeroHQ.com, we've also got another revelation about the game for you.
Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet: Creative Director Jason Gholston of developer Griptonite...
158w ago - The rumored new premium online subscription service, which will cost around £50 per year, is slated to be unveiled by Sony at E3 2010 according to VG247.com (linked above).
This news comes as no big surprise as Sony sent out a survey via IPSOS Online Research on the new service several months back to users.
To quote: "According to a highly-placed source, Sony will announce a large-scale monetizing scheme for PSN at the LA show, but we're assured nothing planned will impact the service's current free aspects.
A string of features will be revealed, apparently costing "less than £50 per year".
Sony will confirm plans to give all subscribers one free PSN game per month, from a choice of "two to four" every month.
"If you work it out, PSN games cost an average of £6-9 each, so over a year you're basically going to be breaking even," said our source.
A streaming music application similar to Spotify will be announced in Sony's press conference on June 15. It's thought that this can run in the background while playing games.
180w ago - During a short demo presentation of Gran Turismo 5 earlier this week, SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda re-confirmed the March 2010 GT5 PS3 release for Japan.
Without getting too specific, he then revealed that Sony was eying a vague "Summer 2010" release, which hopefully means we'll see it before leaves start falling off trees next year.
However, those seeking to get their hands on Gran Turismo 5 sooner will find a PS3 demo on PlayStation Network next week.
To quote: "Interestingly, Hinojosa-Miranda had mentioned to me that he was traveling the U.S. in the coming week to photograph cars for Polyphony's reference material. With nearly 1,000 cars in the game, it's not that big of a stretch to think that they may still be working to flesh out the game's roster.
And while he wouldn't confirm how far along they were towards completing Gran Turismo 5 development, he did say this work wasn't necessarily for the current game.
"It's not for Gran Turismo 5 or a DLC release," he said, clarifying that it's constantly building on its reference material archives. After years of development and multiple Gran Turismo titles, how else do you think it's filling those garages but with non-stop research?
