Video: Lost Planet 2 - PS3 Exclusive Helghast Troops Arrive

100°
250w ago - Capcom's European Brand Manager Richard Earl has unveiled a PS3 exclusive coming to Lost Planet 2 today- Helghast Troops!

To quote: Hot on the heels of the Monster Hunter skin announcement earlier in the week we now have more very special guests making their presence felt on the PS3 version of Lost Planet 2...

E.D.N.III is a harsh place, a planet where you must fight against vicious akrid and the hostile elements. It takes a particularly double hard bastard to take on these odds and they don't come much tougher than the Helghast Assault and Helghast Scout troops.

The most feared units from Killzone now get to take on Lost Planet 2's pirate factions and the deadly giant Akrid. These skins will be available to download for free on PSN from the end of June.





I also wanted to say thanks to all of you who posted comments on my last post. In answer to the question from LAClennell, yes, Frank West is also available in the PS3 version of the game!
 

Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip - Helghast Invade Sony's PSP!

50°
250w ago - Today Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda has announced that Helghast are invading Sony's PSP in the title Hot Shots: Get a Grip.

To quote: Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip is ready to serve a court-full of fun for PSP systems, and will be shipping to retail stores on Tuesday, June 29, 2010! And it will also be available for purchase on the PlayStation Store on the same day!

There will be plenty of posts coming down the web with further details, but let me share this golden nugget of information: this is an all-new Hot Shots Tennis cast in an all-new tennis adventure of the likes that you've never seen before (ever-ever times infinity).

First off, there is the new Story Mode, where you will travel the world spreading tennis love to everyone and anyone you meet. Part of the gameplay will require a certain level of exploration – its like Indiana Jones with a racquet, but with less ophidiophobia and more giant reptile costumes. Yeah, it's something like that.

Of course there will be items to unlock, this is the heart and soul of Hot Shots, so prepare your senses to manage the cornucopia of costume items, courts, and characters that will be coming your way (more on that later!). Just remember, every challenge will grant you new items to customize your character, and there are...
 

Microsoft Rep Confirms EA Purchase Rumor is False

50°
283w ago - Following yesterday's rumor of a THQ takeover by EA came another, this time stating that Microsoft is eyeing EA.

Citing information from traders, a Reuters report said there was "unsubstantiated talk" that Microsoft (MSFT) is interested in buying the publisher of the Madden, Medal of Honor and FIFA series.

However, Microsoft spokesman David Dennis has already dispelled the rumor that they are interested in buying the major videogame publisher.

To quote: "There is no truth to this rumor," he said in an e-mail to SeattlePI.com, "we have no plans to purchase EA."
 

Pirate Bay Purchaser Has Property and Boat Seized Over Debt

200°
285w ago - Just over a month ago it was reported that the Pirate Bay acquisition by Global Gaming Factory was starting to sink.

Today CEO Hans Pandeya of Global Gaming Factory, the company aiming to buy the Pirate Bay, has suffered yet another loss -including a luxury car, a motorcycle and a luxury boat- all to tax authorities over unpaid debt.

To quote: "Having failed to pay a debt of some 780,000 kronor ($110,400) owed to the Swedish tax authorities, at the end of August enforcement officers ran out of patience with Hans Pandeya and moved to seize his assets.

A tow truck took away Pandeya's car, which we can now reveal was a rather nice BMW 745iA, and his Harley Davidson. The tax authorities valued the car at 150,000 kronor ($20,800) and the motorcycle at 40,000 kronor ($5,550) so his tax debt still wasn't cleared, not by a long way.

The bailiffs needed to find more funds but it was reported in the Swedish media that they were unable to find any bank accounts. But the trail didn't go cold.

Following an anonymous tip-off, bailiffs homed in on the Royal Motorboat Club in Stockholm and there they found it - not a torrent galleon with cannons either...
 

FYE, Hastings Ad Reveals $100 Price Cut on Sony's PlayStation 3

100°
289w ago - Following analyst Michael Pachter's prediction from earlier today comes another PS3 price cut ad leak... this time from Hastings, a Texas-based retailer.

According to the ad, the current stock of 160GB PS3s will be cut to $400, a $100 savings over the original.

In related news, CAG is reporting FYE is now selling 80GB PS3 consoles for $299, with the Uncharted bundle for $400.

To quote: Of potential importance is the phrasing: the ad mentions the PS3 is experiencing a "price cut" versus a temporary "sale." The cut begins September 8th, weeks after Sony's press conference at Gamescom.

The reduced price could be exclusive to Hastings, and isn't necessarily indicative of a nationwide price drop. However, a price drop on current PS3 models can clear inventory and make way for a possibly upgraded one.
