Fallout 3 DLC is Coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 Console in June

Fallout 3 DLC is Coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 Console in June 200°
302w ago - PlayStation 3 is set to receive existing Fallout 3 downloadable content beginning in June, with two new add-ons announced coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Bethesda has announced plans to bring Operation Anchorage, The Pitt and Broken Steel to PlayStation 3 over the coming months. These Fallout 3 add-ons were previously only available for Xbox 360 and PC.

Operation Anchorage will be released on PS3 in June, with the other content following four to six weeks apart. An update will be released for the PlayStation 3 version of the game to enable such content to work.

Meanwhile new content is coming for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Fallout 3. These are Point Lookout "Explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content" and Mothership Zeta "The aliens have returned, and they're pissed. Experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you're tough enough to survive."

Point Lookout will be released on PC and Xbox 360 in June and follow on PlayStation 3 once the three other expansions have been released. The cost for the initial PC/X360 release will be 800 Microsoft points. Mothership Zeta will cost the same and will arrive on PC/X360 in July, again with a PS3 release once the other four pieces of content have appeared on the PlayStation Network.
 

Zombie Apocalypse Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network

Zombie Apocalypse Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network 250°
302w ago - Nihilistic Designer John Slavin has announced news that Zombie Apocalypse is hitting PSN today, as follows:

My name is John Slavin, one of Nihilistic's game designers on Zombie Apocalypse, the downloadable title from Konami coming to the PlayStation Network next month.

I wanted to drop in and show some Zombie love to the PlayStation community and give you some previews to what you can expect to see!

So what is Zombie Apocalypse about?

Zombie Apocalypse is pure and gory wish fulfillment. We wanted to strip off the woes of increasingly complex modern mega-games, and retreat back into the world of dank arcades and late-night movie rentals that was our childhood in the 80's and 90's.

We knew multiplayer was a key feature in a game of this type, so we pushed hard to get four-player online co-op integrated from the start. With core values in place, we set out to fill that savage coffer with all the classic zombie lore we loved.

This was not a game in search of a hook, beyond perhaps one to skewer a zombie on. Our goal was to produce a pure arcade shooter, rooted in dual-stick classics such as Robotron: 2084 and Smash...
 

Sony's PlayStation 3 is Closing in on Selling 23 Million Units

Sony's PlayStation 3 is Closing in on Selling 23 Million Units 200°
303w ago - Sony's 2008 results, in the fiscal-year ending March 31st 2009, show that the company sold 10.06 million PlayStation 3's for the year, up 10 per cent from a year earlier.

When adding fiscal-2007's numbers (9.12 million) and fiscal-2006 launch sales (3.61 million), the PlayStation 3 is closing in on 23 million units sold (shipped) worldwide, which it is expected to surpass when April 2009 sales are included.

The company predicts that the console will sell 13 million units during this fiscal-year. This increase is either extremely optimistic, or presumes a price cut, new model, or killer software.

The PSP also saw increased sales at 14.11 million, up from 2007's 13.81 million. PlayStation 2 hardware and software sales were down significantly and the company expects to sell 3 million less in 2009 than in 2008.

Sony's 2008 fiscal results reveal an annual loss of 98.9 billion yen (£685.20 million/$1.04 billion), with losses continuing in the gaming division but tapered by the PlayStation 3's success.

Sony Knows Nothing About the Slim PS3 Redesign Pictures

Sony Knows Nothing About the Slim PS3 Redesign Pictures 400°
303w ago - According to ComputerAndVideoGames (linked above), Sony knows nothing about the rumored pics of a new slim PS3 that are said to have leaked from a production line in a Chinese factory.

To quote: The shots show the matt black outer shell of a skinnier version of the console, complete with a slots for the Blu-ray disc drive, USB ports, and PS3 branding on the top and bottom (but not in the same Spider-Man-style font).

There's even a shot of the box, with all the PSN logos and a label indicating a 120GB internal hard drive.

Quite specifically Sony told us: "We don't know anything about the system in the photos."
