176w ago - Update: Although the Dark Void PS3 demo was scheduled to hit PlayStation Network this week, several PSN users have reported that it is not currently available.
While the demo of Dark Void is shown in the PS3 XMB menu under "What's New," when trying to download it users are getting error code (80023111).
Senior Producer Morgan Gray has shared a Dark Void video and announced that this week a PS3 demo of the title will be hitting PlayStation Network, as follows:
I wanted a chance to drop by and let everyone know that a demo of Dark Void will be releasing this Thursday on the PlayStation Store. We figure why not start the new year with a bit of jet pack action.
So what's in the demo?
With all the aspects of Dark Void ranging from ground combat, jetpack dogfighting, vertical combat, its hard to slam everything into a 10 minute window
We decided that everyone would want to get a feel for flight right off the bat, so we start you off with a bit of flying tutorial, then get into some serious UFO dogfighting (well, not that serious, but it should be enough for people to figure out what button does what and kill some Watchers... which is really what it is all about when you get down to it).
181w ago - Today PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a video preview of Sony's Qore - Episode 19 hosted by Veronica Belmont.
To quote: The December Episode of Qore features no fear of heights, a fearsome knight, fighting Nazis at night, and part two of our visit with Industrial Light... and Magic.
What do aliens, Nikola Tesla and the Bermuda Triangle have in common? They're all tied together in Capcom's Dark Void. We've got an in-depth preview of the story, weapons, and world of this vertigo-inducing game that literally takes the third-person shooter to new heights!
From Japan, the land of the RPG, comes the latest epic title from Dark Cloud developer Level-5 Inc., White Knight Chronicles. Qore examines the combat system, storyline and online components that are sure to impress when the game hits the US early next year.
The story of an Irish racecar driver who gets caught up in the resistance movement in Nazi-occupied Paris sounds unbelievable, but EA's The Saboteur is based upon a historical figure. Veronica Belmont talks with the developer about...
184w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a video interview with with Capcom's Morgan Gray covering Dark Void on the PS3.
To quote: The same day Jeff hit up Seth Killian to talk Super Street Fighter IV inside Capcom's US HQ, I sat down with Senior Producer Morgan Gray for some quality time with Dark Void.
This was the first time I've seen the game running in action on PS3, and Morgan was kind enough to walk us through a hefty chunk of jet-packing, on-foot shooting and unique "vertical combat" -- the three key components that make up Dark Void's unique blend of third-person action.
Dark Void's due out on January 19, but for now, there's plenty of footage to peep below.
286w ago - Right, we're gonna get two words off our chests straight off the bat. Crimson. Skies. See, you won't read many previews of Dark Void without the inevitable mention of this all-but-forgotten stylised Xbox airplane shooter, which sadly joined such luminaries as Beyond Good and Evil and the ace Psychonauts in the 'bloody great but no bugger bought them' category of videogames. Which was a real shame, since it was very good indeed.
Still, it looks as if somebody pretty senior at Capcom still believes in devs Airtight Games, and the result is Dark Void. Dirge plot aside (some ancient devils who used to rule over Earth but were turned upon by humankind have risen again for vengeance) Dark Void is every inch a sexed-up next gen Crimson Skies lovechild - from its Nathan Zachary-alike chiselled hero with a giant rocket pack strapped upon his back to the very steampunk aesthetic and the presence of, yep you guessed it, all sorts of flying contraptions straight out of Terry Thomas' wildest fantasies.
Though the trailer hinted at demonic forces straight from the ninth level of hell, the actual adversaries appeared to be machine-gun-toting weirdos donning gimp masks. Gaze past the dull-looking scrapping and shooting though and Dark Void appears to have neat tricks up its coiffured sleeve.
289w ago - Sony CSR admitted to reader Ive that dust should not void a Playstation 3's warranty. Transcript and audio, after the jump.
Ive: I'm calling just to pretty much clarify the PS3's warranty, if there's any clause in the warranty that makes it so that if the PS3 is too dusty that the warranty is void.
CSR: No. The only way that it, um, voided is if it was neglected, um, abused, dropped or anything like, modificated like if you opened it up, modification, if you didn't have your receipt, um, any power failures like mother nature or anything like that then that actually does void the warranty. Other than that any defective PS3s or anything like that is still, um, still under the warranty.
Ive spoke to several CSRs, each of whom took a similar position until they read the account notes. Apparently, a tech determined that the fearsome dust constituted neglect and presented a threat to his health.
To his credit, the CSR handled a ridiculous situation fairly well.
