PS3 Firmware 3.0 to Be the Last Major Firmware Update of 2009

PS3 Firmware 3.0 to Be the Last Major Firmware Update of 2009 50°
288w ago - Sony will release the PS3 Firmware 3.0 update on September 1st for the PlayStation 3 console.

Firmware 3.0 completely revamps the information board, introduces premium avatars and animated themes and a variety of other tweaks.

While Firmware 3.0 is the last major update the PlayStation 3 will see during 2009, G4TV (linked above) recently asked Sony if this was the last update period for the calendar year.

To quote: "This is a big and significant update, so you would be correct to assume that [it's the last major update for 2009]," said PlayStation Network operations director Eric Lempel to G4TV.

He did, however, note that the release of a few smaller updates throughout the remainder of 2009 is still a possibility.
 

PTOM: New Details on The Last Guardian for PS3 Surface

PTOM: New Details on The Last Guardian for PS3 Surface 200°
291w ago - According to GamesThirst (linked above), the September Issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine (PTOM, formerly known as PSM - PlayStation Magazine) has a few new details about Team ICO's newest game, The Last Guardian for PS3.

To quote: "The game being the third from Team ICO, will center on the evolving relationship between a boy and his large mythical creature, (we already knew that), that creature is called "Trico" in the Japanese version.

At first the creature will be hostile towards the boy, but as the boy cares for the creature, cleaning it, playing with it and feeding it, that relationship, or bond will grow.

Overtime, the boy will use the creature to solve platforming puzzles, but the creature is alive and acts naturally, as if it were a real animal. Persuading it to do what you need will take patience and guile, not force."

That being said, The Last Guardian is looking to be another graphical masterpiece from the creators of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

For those wondering, The Last Guardian has no official release date yet but is likely to be released in 2010.
 

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.

New Last Rebellion PS3 Screenshots Show More Aisha 200°
294w ago - NIS and Hitmaker have thrown out some more new screenshots on the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive role-playing game, Last Rebellion.

To quote: Instead of bringing some more of Nine, the game's male protagonist, into the picture, these screenshots tend to focus more on Aisha, the game's female protagonist.

They don't look half-bad.

Publisher NIS America hopes to release the game by the end of next summer.

A few of the screens are available below, and check out the rest at the link above. Cheers!
 

Video Comparison: Trico Leak and The Last Guardian Debut

Video Comparison: Trico Leak and The Last Guardian Debut 100°
299w ago - Over the weekend JoyStiq shared a video comparison of both the old Trico leak and some recent footage from the newly dubbed title: The Last Guardian.

To quote: When we first saw the year-old leaked footage for Team ICO's third game - then known only as "Trico" - We had two thoughts. First: we really want a kitty dragon; and second: we wonder what the game looks like now.

Lucky for us, Sony's E3 keynote answered the latter, with a fresh dose of video footage of the game, newly dubbed The Last Guardian.

Here's the thing though: the first three and a half minutes of the trailer were shot-for-shot identical to the leak, with obvious visual enhancements and that got us thinking: a video comparison!





Our very own Richard Mitchell painstakingly stitched the two videos together above for your enjoyment. On the left: The Last Guardian. On the right: Trico.
