Rumor: New Sony PSN Service Update is Coming Soon?

Rumor: New Sony PSN Service Update is Coming Soon? 250°
292w ago - The Examiner.com (linked above) is reporting news of an incoming Sony PSN service update. Upon logging in to investigate further, the following are now shown under the PSN Services section:

• Screen: Media Go!
• Screens: PlayStation Store for Games 1, 2 and 3
• Screen: Video Delivery Service
• Screens: SensMe

It's no surprise that Sony is constantly expanding their PSN services- which currently include PlayStation Home, the PlayStation Store and a movie/television rental service (among others) as the PS3 is indeed a multimedia console.

What's in the cards remains to be seen, but until then some screens from the services detailed above are available, and to quote:

On their official press site, Sony has an official PSN tab and it lists all the available services for PS3 owners to take advantage of. Well, Sony just updated their press site and under their PSN service section, they list a new link that is tentatively titled "Coming Soon" - which is currently unavailable to open.

Will Sony be announcing a new PSN service in the near future? Or will it be part of the Thursday store update? I have high doubt it's the rumored PlayStation Cloud service, but it's definitely something. For it to be on the site now, Sony must be planning to...
 

Speculation: Star Ocean: The Last Hope Coming to PS3?

Speculation: Star Ocean: The Last Hope Coming to PS3? 200°
292w ago - Star Ocean: The Last Hope was released earlier this year exclusively on the XBox 360 console.

However, it may just be a timed exclusive with Square Enix's first retail PlayStation 3 game being Star Ocean: The Last Hope.

GameFly is currently listing Star Ocean: The Last Hope for the PlayStation 3.

On a related note, the XBox 360 box art (pictured below) of Star Ocean: The Last Hope doesn't contain the "Only on XBox 360" label.

To quote: GameFly has a good, no superb, track record for leaking games. However, this situation is unusual since Star Ocean: The Last Hope would be announced in Japan first and then leaked by GameFly.

A PlayStation 3 port seems inevitable, but GameFly is the only retailer with a listing for the game so don't get your hopes up too much.
 

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer DLC Coming & Gameplay

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer DLC Coming & Gameplay 100°
293w ago - News of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer DLC was recently revealed at Comic-Con 2009 along with some active cinematic gameplay (video below) courtesy of IGN.

Creative director Amy Hennig stated that Naughty Dog's latest will get post-release support in the form of multiplayer DLC.

To quote: "One of the great things about the multiplayer and the co-op is that it gives us great opportunities to expand the experience for players with downloadable content, unlockables, things like that.

Which of course you don't really do with the single-player game that much. We tried to pack a lot of value into the first game in terms of unlockables, but with that online component the game can kind of keep growing, especially based on players' feedback too."



 

Marvel Super Hero Sackboys Coming to LittleBigPlanet on PS3

Marvel Super Hero Sackboys Coming to LittleBigPlanet on PS3 100°
293w ago - Kotaku (linked above) reports that Marvel Super Hero Sackboys are coming to LittleBigPlanet on Sony's PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: At today's "The Next Generation of Marvel Video Games" panel, three new heroic LittleBigPlanet costumes were revealed.

Marvel showed off three concept renders of Sackboys that may be coming to the PlayStation 3 exclusive, but did not offer dates for the costumes, nor confirm that this would be the extent of the Marvel characters that would be licensed for LittleBigPlanet use.

Considering Marvel has Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 and Marvel Super Hero Squad coming this year, don't be surprised if you see Captain America, Iron Man and Wolverine on your PS3 soon.

Video: Castle Crashers Coming to PlayStation 3 via PSN 50°
293w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared another Comic-Con 2009 video entitled Castle Crashers coming to PSN.

To quote: Hidden amongst the madness of the Comic-Con 2009 show floor was a gem. Castle Crashers, a game that some hoped would eventually come to PS3, is finally headed our way.

If you're unfamiliar, it's a really clever downloadable co-op action game that utilizes some cool RPG elements for great results. And it was officially announced for PSN at Comic-Con.

We cornered the kind folks at The Behemoth for a little back and forth, so take a look at the video to find out why you need to keep your eye out for Castle Crashers.

And get to know these guys because they promised to come back on the Blog when they have even more to talk about.
