PES 08 on PS3 is More Fluid & Ahead of 360 Version

GameSpy writes in their latest article:

"After playing at least a round on each console, once to a crushing defeat, then a tie on 360, and finally a victory on the PS3, we can confidently say that it feels pretty similar to last year's game on 360, and oddly, it feels a little more fluid on the PS3."
Seems like the first game I've seen with the PlayStation 3 as the lead platform. Hopefully more will come in the future.

NBA 2K8: Both PS3 & 360 Versions Locked at 60 FPS

According to GameSpy, both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 NBA 2K8 versions will be locked at 60 frames per second. Heres the quote:

The beginning of our brief presentation showed off some of the new features you can expect. For the simulation aspects, it's all about upping the physical game on defense and focusing on one-on-one encounters. Of course, it's still about the five-on-five action, the skeletal structure of any good basketball game, but the team really wants to look at increasing the tension on D and at the post. As with many sports games this year, regardless of publisher, you'll see an increase in animations, as many developers should hopefully hit a stride after two next-gen titles and some successes and failures under many of their belts. For 2K8, expect to see more movements in terms of pivots, foot planting, and of course, everyone's favorite, dunks. Plus, you'll be getting 60 frames per second locked in for PS3 and 360.

IGN: Stuntman: Ignition Scores 6.5/10 Passable

Woah. This is a sad day for me, personally looking forward to Stuntman: Ignition. Today, IGN has done it's review, and they gave it a 6.5/10, passable. They claim the gameplay is:

Far too reliant on trial and error. Having to restart a few times is acceptable, but when retries climb into the dozens, the game grows beyond frustrating.

NCSoft: 4 Titles Initially Planned for PlayStation 3

Geoff Heath, NCSoft Europe's big boss talked to GamesIndustry.Biz about the deal that Sony announced at this years E3 2007. Everybody's been wondering what or how many titles they are actually planning on the PlayStation 3. Well, there are 4 titles planned. Here is a list of important points:

  • The deal has been in the works for a long time -- NCSoft has been seeking someone with the right technology and support to get into the console business. Plus, NCSoft likes how the PlayStation Store works.
  • Since NCSoft has a ton of games, they initially need to dilute their options down to about four to stick on the PS3. We think they'll expand on their biggest titles, like Guild Wars.
  • New titles that are created will be exclusive to the PS3 and only the PS3. Although, Heath admits, a PC version of whatever the title is will probably exist. There are no plans to bring any games to other consoles.
Me, personally, am hoping they make a modern day type MMO like Megami Tensei Online: IMAGINE or Persona 3. Or at least port of Aion from the PC to the PlayStation 3.

Amazon: PS3 & 8 Blu-ray Movies for $475

We have an amazing deal going on at Amazon. Follow the steps below. This really makes you mad if you got the PlayStation 3 during launch like I did. All we got was Talladega Knights and we had to pay $600.

  • Add the 60GB PS3 to your amazon.com shopping cart.
  • Choose three Blu-ray movies from this list and add them to the cart.
  • Right before checkout, you'll see the discount applied (see picture, right).
Then, you'll get a rebate form for five more Blu-ray movies. Even if you don't want to be part of a next-gen movie format war, this is still one of the cheapest ways we've seen to get a PS3 -- the free movies are a nice added bonus.
