Looks like EA is continuing to treat the PlayStation 3 like crap, and quite frankly, I'm tired of it. On the left, we have a crowd from the PlayStation 3 version of NBA Live 08, on the right, the Xbox 360 version. Notice a difference? We all do.

Sony has sent notice to IGN, that the upcoming PlayStation Network title, PixelJunk Racers, the slot car racing simulator by Q Games, will be available for download from the PlayStation Store this Thursday, September 13.
Now there are going to be two downloadable games come this next update. Here is a quick insight on Pixel Junk Racers if you don't know about it:
PixelJunk Racers features visuals in full 1080p, and offers ten different courses to race on with up to seven players simultaneously offline. Sixteen core modes of racing are available, including Speed Monkey and Fireball Frenzy, and there's a single-player tournament mode as well to diversify the experience. Also included in the game is a Global Online Ranking system that keeps track of your accomplishments, along with the stats of other players around the world.Keep your eyes peeled, because Pixel Junk Racers is coming Thursday.
The 360 version will be boasting a behind-the-scenes DVD with over four hours of interviews with the creators of CoD4, features, a documentary following the British S.A.S from World War II to modern day, and an array of "making of" episodes showcasing the research and technology developer Infinity Ward put into the game.[Via IGN]
The Netherlands based site PS3Only received pricing information from Sony in regards to the Blu-ray version of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. According to the site, Sony has stated that the retail version of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue will run an expensive 45 Euros (about $60 American).
Sony emphasized that Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is actually a full game, like Warhawk. With 40 cars, 5 tracks, 1080p graphics, 60 frames per second and a whole new online world for up to 16 people. Sony will also introduce a new feature, called GT TV. Here, you can download TV-Shows about cars.
I think that is kind of a rip for a game with many limits, even though the game looks great.

On IGN's Podcast Beyond ep. 12 , they have said that Atlus is working on a new exclusive game for PS3 which might be the next Persona. Apparently, Atlus is trying to figure out when to bring out information about the game. IGN said that they're thinking about getting us the info after TGS.
If you've never heard of Persona, it's a hidden RPG gem, even amongst the hardcore gamers. Because of the nature of that, it's not some huge system seller so for the people that only care about sales, this isn't what it's going to be. However, if all you care about is great games, here's another one.
The Japanese PSN site lists the demo's name as "Heavenly Sword" Nariko Personal Experience version. Assuming it's the same demo that the US had, maybe "Nariko Personal Experience" is Japanese for "you only get 5 minutes to play".

SOE's multiplayer poker game, High Stakes on the Vegas Strip: Poker Edition will be released this Thursday through the network's PlayStation store. The title will go for $9.99 and supports a variety of features, now fairly standard for Sony PSN releases. High Stakes will support 1080p resolution, online play with up to six people, audio chat and online leaderboards.
Q: The whole Web 2.0 influence: was it initiated by the massive success of things like My Space and YouTube? What was the thinking behind it?
Paulina Bozek: For SingStar, it was a combination of two things. Our two main features in SingStar for PS3 are downloading the tunes you want – obviously, it’s always on – and the community uploading of content to share with your friends at My SingStar Online.
Q: Which is classic user-generated content?
PB: Yeah. Yes, it was emerging as a big cultural trend, but we started working on it quite early, and now we’ve finished the title. It has been in production for two years so, two years ago, it was early days. We were already looking towards that. With SingStar, in particular, it wasn’t just about the big online names like My Space and YouTube: people were spontaneously sharing and forming communities. We were constantly getting videos on a Monday morning, saying: “This is my SingStar party,” so it was natural for SingStar to go that way.
