6w ago - Zen Studios Community Manager Bobby Loertscher confirmed today that Star Wars Pinball Standalone hits PSN next week with some new features detailed below.
To quote: Wait, what? Didn't Star Wars Pinball already launch on PSN? YES! And you are telling me it is launching again? YES! Okay, that was probably super confusing, so let me try to explain.
Believe me, it's a good thing. The initial Star Wars Pinball pack was released in February for Zen Pinball 2 on PS3 and PS Vita. That pack included Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and it's coming back... this time, with even more features. Cue Star Wars opening crawl text...
From the very beginning of the Star Wars Pinball project, we've been working on a special standalone version of the game that would offer some really fun community features and would be fully branded Star Wars. We managed to finish that project, and it's releasing next week, exclusively on PS3 and PS Vita!
Now you're probably wondering, "Why did I buy this for Zen Pinball 2 when I could have bought a game with different features?" Don't worry, young Padawan, we thought about that too. If you've already bought the tables in Zen Pinball 2, you are entitled to download Star Wars Pinball at no charge!
68w ago - Killzone Community Editor Victor Zuylen has announced that the standalone Killzone 3 multiplayer hits PSN today, and also confirmed for fans that this will be a Double XP weekend as well!
To quote: To celebrate Killzone 3's first anniversary, we're releasing a standalone version of the game's online component on PlayStation Store today.
Dubbed "Killzone 3 Multiplayer," it includes the Guerrilla Warfare, Warzone, and Operations game modes, as well as the original Killzone 3 maps and all Killzone 3 DLC maps.
Best of all, it's free to try - you can play any of the maps and modes until you reach the rank of Sergeant I.
If you want to keep playing, attain higher ranks, and earn any of Killzone 3 Multiplayer's four exclusive new Trophies, you can unlock the full version for only $15. Doing so will net you a 24-hour double XP bonus, three free unlock points, the ability to set up clans and custom games, and access to the Botzone mode to help hone your combat skills.
For those who already own Killzone 3 (or decide to purchase the full version of Killzone 3 Multiplayer), we have another anniversary treat: this weekend will be Double XP Weekend!...

128w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacking group Fail0verflow has tweeted news of a Standalone Linux PS3 Slim 27C3 Fail0verflow demo that Marcan42 wanted to show off during this year's 27C3 but couldn't due to the video not working.
From the video's caption, to quote: "This is what the fail0verflow 27c3 demo *should* have looked like. As it turns out, the reason why we didn't have working video and had to fall back to an SSH demo was because this Slim is too new to run version 3.15 (what we tried to run), since it does not correctly support this particular revision of the RSX. So here's the same demo, except with version 3.41, which does work."
For those who missed it, pytey of Fail0verflow was also recently interviewed by the BBC.
The video can be seen below, and here are some related Fail0verflow tweets:
