Disney Helping Promote PS3 and Blu-ray

Disney Helping Promote PS3 and Blu-ray 50°
384w ago - In the latest Disney commercials for newly released Disney Blu-ray movies and games Disney is giving the PS3 some added promotion stating that the product "Plays on Blu-ray players and PlayStation 3."

This is great news for Sony and it appears that Disney and Sony have some sort of partnership which has made this type of advertisement a reality.

Apparetly Disney wants to push the Blu-ray format and has chosen it as their format of choice to release all of their key titles on such as the newly released Meet the Robinsons which we reviewed here right on PCN earlier in the week

It is very smart for Disney to take this approach because if they push the PS3 and it sells more units, that will mean that more people will have Blu-ray players and likely buy more copies of their films in the future

Saling The World: Ratchet & Clank Future Rockets to Top of U.S. PS3 Chart in Debut Week 50°
384w ago - Gamasutra's weekly column, "Saling The World", covers the top five sellers for every available platform in the United States, Japan, and Europe, providing an important update of sales patterns worldwide.

This week's charts, with data taken from October 25th, 2007, show Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction leading in PS3 software popularity in North America, while Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 dominates multiple platforms in the UK. Data for "Saling The World" comes courtesy of the public sales information on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.co.jp, with sales split out for each platform and territory, and pre-orders disregarded.

This results in a true sense of what games are selling worldwide on the real-time updated service, as follows:

PS3 Firmware 2.0 Detailed, Hits Next Week

PS3 Firmware 2.0 Detailed, Hits Next Week 50°
384w ago - An informed UK reader sends word of the Playstation 3's 2.0 firmware release, which he says is supposed to hit on Oct. 30. While the source appears to be genuine, I am a little doubtful of the timing since 1.94 seems to be just hitting now with copies of Ratchet and Clank, so take this, as you should all rumors, with a grain of salt.

Chief among the updates is the inclusion of cross media bar customization, a separate Playstation Network category, music and photo playlists and the ability to turn your PS3 on and off with PSP Remote Play. Hit the jump for the full break down of what we're told will be coming in this rather robust update.

PLAYSTATION Eye: Your Questions Answered 50°
384w ago - Kristin Neirinckx (Associate Product Manager, SCEA) posted the following on their official blog today:

Hello everyone! The PLAYSTATION Eye is beginning to hit store shelves. Be sure to check it out and download your free EyeCreate software on the PLAYSTATION Network.

Sarah Stocker did a great job of summarizing all of the great technology and features included in the PLAYSTATION Eye last week. I'm here to help answer some of the great questions you've been asking. Here we go:

Warhawk 1.1 Patch Escapes Early

Warhawk 1.1 Patch Escapes Early 50°
384w ago - Dylan Jobe the game director of Warhawk has posted up that some US players have been able to download the Warhawk v1.1 patch before its Official global release date. However since then, Jobe reports that the problem has been resolved and the v1.1 patch has been take offline until the team can finalize their 'global test cycle'. To quote:

This afternoon, some of our US players were inadvertently able to download the v1.1 patch prior to its official, worldwide deployment. This problem has been resolved and the v1.1 patch has been taken offline until we finalize our global test cycle.

We super apologize for the inconvenience – we all want the patch out as soon as possible, but we need to wait for it to clear the last stages of our world-wide test before we "pull-the-trigger."

So...for those players that were using the Blu-ray version of Warhawk that *did* update to v1.1 today, we advise that you go to the XMB (cross media bar), and in your "Game Data Utility", delete your Warhawk game data. Once you've done that, just re-boot Warhawk and the game will re-install v1.0, allowing you to play with the 1.0 world again. And I know you'll all ask this...it will *not* affect your stats or Save Data.
