Details on PlayStation Home Audi Space, Arrives in December

250°
284w ago - A new Audi space is set for a December release in PlayStation Home, and will include the "Vertical Run" mini-game.

Within the game, apparently participants can drive the e-tron concept car through challenges and be rewarded by unlocking Audi apartments.

To quote from Paultan.org: "The goal of Vertical Run is to beat the competition in a multiplayer challenge by collecting enough electrical energy and avoiding driving errors in the e-tron, in order to reach the highest possible speed.

The best drivers in the Vertical Run game will be able to access special spaces around the world called "Audi apartments," though I'm not sure what exactly are in the apartments."

Details are slim beyond that, but this would be the first time apartments are available to win in a mini-game and it sounds like thar will be a variety of apartments up for grabs.
 

PS3 Reference TOOL Kit Arrives for the PS3 News Dev Team!

1150°
287w ago - Well, I hinted at it last week, that we were getting something BIG, and yeah- we did!

It retails for $10,250.00, weighs in around 45lbs, is around 19" wide and 24" deep. If you have not guessed it yet, it's a PS3 TOOL, also known as a PS3 Reference Kit, also known as the DECR-1000A.

This unit is the big brother to the new DECR-1400A, and has many more features than the newer, neutered counterpart. Most of them are outlined in my recently updated thread, but the jist of it is that it has dual 400GB hard disks, dual HDMI outputs, 4x LAN connectors, analog audio output, VGA output - just to name a few.

Compared to a PS3 Debug/TEST unit, the PS3 TOOL can do MUCH more, including diagnosing exactly what is happening when perceived "exploit" code is run to crash/hang the PS3. However, the biggest feature is having the ability...

287w ago - Update: The official boxart is now added below, and those interested can pre-order God of War: Collection for $39.99 from Amazon.com.

SCEA Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo announced today that the God of War Collection - Blu-ray Disc Compilation will be available this holiday season.

To quote: The fans spoke and we listened. For those that recall the God of War survey conducted earlier this year, an overwhelming amount of the community suggested the PlayStation 2 experiences of Kratos be brought forth to the PlayStation 3.

Thanks to your feedback, we are excited to announce the God of War Collection for this Holiday Season. Now fans and newcomers to the series can experience the epic journey of God of War and God of War II in 720p HD form. Both titles have been remastered with anti-aliased graphics, running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience, only on the PS3 system. Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc compilation will bring the PlayStation Network (PSN) trophy support to the franchise for the very first time.

Marvel Vs Capcom 2 for PlayStation 3 Arrives on PSN Today!

100°
289w ago - Today Capcom's John Diamonon has announced that Marvel Vs Capcom 2 for PlayStation 3 is hitting PSN, to quote:

It's my pleasure to announce that Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 arrives on PSN today for only $14.99. (Take that eBay!).

Marvel was nice enough to provide an exclusive offer to the PSN faithful. The first 15,000 purchasers of the full game will receive a code for a free one month subscription to Marvel Digital Comics! If you are one of the lucky ones, you'll receive an email sometime early next week with your redemption code.

Wait, there's more. Since I know you all have mixed feelings about the original Jazz soundtrack, we decided to implement in-game XMB music so you can choose what tracks you listen to while executing your 100-hit DHCs on unsuspecting n00bs. "I'm gonna take you for a ride. I'm gonna take you for a ride. I'm gonna take you for a ride."

Speaking of music, we collaborated with some of hip hop's true artists to come up with a mix tape inspired by the game. The soundtrack includes songs from Talib Kweli, Raekwon, Hieroglyphics, Living Legends, E-40, Planet Asia, Havoc from Mobb Deep, Mc Supernatural, DJ Qbert, Oh No, DJ Toure and more. If you were lucky enough to go to Comic-Con a few weeks ago and snag one of the super limited vinyls we...
 

PlayStation Network and Gamebattles Auto Reporting Arrives

50°
290w ago - SCEA's Marketing Alliances Manager Bret Blount has introduced PlayStation Network and Gamebattles Auto Reporting today, as follows:

Hi everyone! My group has been working hard with partners at MLG's Gamebattles to give competitive PlayStation gamers a better tournament experience.

Last month it was secure registration and authentication between PSN and Gamebattles. Today we're happy to officially introduce auto reporting – a function of sharing game data between the PlayStation Network and Gamebattles tournament and ladder systems.

It works like this: When you finish a match which was scheduled on select Gamebattles PlayStation arenas, Gamebattles will fetch the score and statistics for both teams (or players).

For the player, this means it will be much easier and faster to play PS3 matches on Gamebattles and there will be fewer disputes based on user input errors. It will also allow PlayStation to highlight PS3 Gamebattles activity in real-time, both on the interweb and within connected PlayStation communities.

This feature has been enabled first for the MLB '09 THE SHOW All Star...
