New Sony PS3 and PSN Releases for the Week of August 15, 2011
Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with details on the PS3 and PSN video game releases for the coming week today, as follows:
PSone Classics return this week, and No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise finally makes its much deserved high definition debut on PS3 with PS Move support.
No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise - Anime geek Travis Touchdown wins a Beam Katana and starts a new career as a professional killer in this remake of the first entry into the unusual action franchise No More Heroes. There's only one way to the top ranks of the underground world of paid assassins and it's going to get messy.
Lucky for Travis Touchdown, he just knocked off the world's eleventh best without breaking a sweat. The life of fame and fortune couldn't be closer. Heads will roll and names will be taken, but everything is not what it seems.
It all started after Travis was assigned to take on the drifter known as Helter Skelter, the United Assassin Association's 11th ranked assassin. After a grueling battle, Travis emerged the winner, collected the spoils of battle and claimed his title as the new 11th ranked assassin.
However, the situation turns out to be more complicated than Travis first thought. It is after the mysterious beauty, Sylvia Christel, appears that the real adventure begins...
Driver: San Francisco (Multiplayer) - Driver: San Francisco marks the return of the blockbuster driving franchise. Gamers play John Tanner, a hardened detective involved in a relentless manhunt throughout the City by the Bay.
Thanks to a groundbreaking gameplay feature, players can now seamlessly shift between more than a hundred licensed vehicles, keeping them constantly in the heart of the action. With its timeless atmosphere, unique car handling and renewed playability, Driver: San Francisco offers the free-roaming, classic, cinematic car chase experience.
Medal of Honor: Frontline - The Nazi invasion is in full swing, and you're the Lieutenant who's going to put a stop to it. Step into the shoes of Lt. Jimmy Patterson once again, sweeping across Europe to rescue the innocent and destroy the opposition.
The 15 assignments range from saving captured OSS operatives from a Nazi-held Dutch manor house to dismantling a German naval base. Your job is a little too tough for any one man to pull off on his own, so you'll have a loyal group of soldiers and a slew of weaponry including the Liberator Pistol, Panzerschreck, MG42, and B.A.R. all of which will come to your aid in the heat of battle.
Divided into five main missions, the gameplay is extensive and meticulously constructed, resulting in an experience that trumps earlier series installments.
Breath of Fire IV - Princess Nina's sister, Elina, has disappeared. Nina and her friend, Cray, set out to find her. Along the way, they encounter a young warrior name Ryu who has no recollection of his past.
This troupe is about to find out that their quest to find Elina will lead them to something much bigger, which will require them to save the world. Take control of the three-member party (there are a total of six playable characters), and lead them into battle.
Any member of the group not in the active party can be rotated into battle. When the going gets tough, have Ryu use his ability to transform into a dragon to give you an extra edge.
If your characters keep getting killed, have them train under a master to improve their skills. Will Nina and the others be able to find Elina and save the world? Play Breath of Fire IV and find out.

PSN games don't require certain FW's right?
That's a good question... I don't use PSN so not sure myself, but if I had to guess a user would need to be on a Firmware that at least allows PSN access which basically isn't JailBreak-friendly.
As usual, when PS3 Firmware 3.70 was released the PSN bypass methods worked again for a few days without the need to update, but when checking IRC logs today it appears even that brief period is over once again according to Lieutenan:
[Lieutenan] did they just now fix the dns bypass? i can't get on psn no mo'
as far as i know the eboot inside the pkg file is "fw sensitive" for lack of a better term, like game updates.
Even demos are FW - sensitive, AFAIK
