Here is a new GamerSyde diary about The Simpsons Game. And, as the people at GamerSyde are truly nice and fluffy, they even give you some real interview chunks in the video. Enjoy!
With the price slash on the 80GB version of the PLAYSTATION 3, Sony's sales on Amazon have skyrocketed.
Consumers have quickly responded to the new, lower price. The price cut for the holiday season has so far been well recieved, and sales have jumped over 800%.
"As frequent Playstation.Blog readers will remember, about two weeks back we announced Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction had gone gold and would ship to stores Oct 30th. Well, due to some unexpected quickness at the factory, a vast majority of retailers have already received the game. With that, some retailers are choosing to release the game next week instead of waiting until the 30th, which we are all too happy to allow :).Street dates broken much? I'll make sure I get my copy.
Official launch date remains October 30, but for those who can’t wait to use your trigger fingers on the Tornado Launcher (or any other weapon in Ratchet’s arsenal), check with your local game retailer next week. "
The KILLZONE series has lacked one thing, action figures, so when we see one like this, it draws a lot of attention.
Egar, a user over at the official PLAYSTATION Boards, found a link to a website selling all sorts of custom KILLZONE action figures. Give it a visit at the link below.

This has happened with a few demos recently. We were promised a demo, but then, upon the arrival date we were supposed to receive the demo, we did not receive it.
What game demos am I talking about? Remember the whole SKATE demo situation? Now it seems to be happening with two other demos we were promised. One being WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 for the US Store and the other being Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 for the EU Store.
The WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 demo was promised and we have a link for proof. The Pro Evolution 2008 demo has been in Sony's hands for quite some time now, just as it was with SKATE.
So, what gives?
DemosAn alright update, was expecting a WWE! SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 demo though.

According to Capcom's press meeting, Commando 3 is indeed a follow-up to the '80s shoot-'em-up originals, and allows up to three players to partake in a bit of blasting.
You'll get to take on the varied roles of the game's diverse playable characters - Animal, a former marine, Smoke, a female covert-op, and Boomer, an explosive-loving grump - and deploy power-ups like "deadly M-Crash superbombs", with controllable co-op vehicles to master and an adjustable difficulty level in case you're pants.Expect online leaderboards.
This move has been part of our longer term business strategy for PS3 since early on and we believe this lower priced model, combined with our broad line-up of content will appeal to a great many of you who want a lower entry price without sacrificing any of the core components of PS3. With today’s news, we’re strengthening our position approaching this holiday season and beyond with the intent to provide you with a choice and an excellent entry point into HD games and movies.
Adding to the appeal of the new retail pricing is the great PS3 lineup that will help further drive our momentum this holiday, including Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, THE EYE OF JUDGMENT, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Heavenly Sword, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Assassin’s Creed, Haze and Rock Band. And that’s just the beginning: This holiday lineup will be followed in 2008 by highly-anticipated Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Grand Theft Auto IV, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet and, of course, PlayStation Home.
Our goal this holiday season is to make PS3 even more affordable and to offer you greater choice to suit your gaming and entertainment needs. Again, I want to thank all of you for your continued support throughout this past year and I look forward to the months and years ahead.
That sounds like a plan to me.... *checks wallet*.... damn.

Two new demos have appeared today on the Japanese PLAYSTATION Store.
The first demo is a Heavenly Sword demo, but not the regular one that we've all played, it's a Kai demo, letting you play as Nariko's sister in the short version of the game.
The second demo is a G1 Jockey 4 2007, a horse racing game. Race your horses to get to the finish.

Another one bites the dust - this time, the bloodthirsty Soldier of Fortune: Pay Back, part of Activision's early 2008 line up, has been refused classification by the OFLC. This comes off the back of an initial delay for the game to separate it from the impending release of Call of Duty 4 in Australia. We contacted Activision on the classification refusal. They refused to comment on the classification itself, but reiterated that the initial delay had nothing to do with the OFLC's refusal.
They offered this explanation for the now-moot delay:
"We decided to move Soldier of Fortune: Payback to early 2008, in order to give the title a more opportunistic launch window. We're currently working at 110% in getting our Q4 titles to market with the likes of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, and therefore moving Soldier of Fortune: Payback puts it in a less cluttered launch window and allows the Activision Australia marketing team to focus the attention to it that it deserves for a successful launch. We apologise to Australian gamers for the delay."
Again, Activision declined to comment directly on the classification refusal.

It's a great day when you pick up two things that have relevance with each other that you absolutely love. Thats what I did.
I picked up Transformers on special 2-disc edition DVD today and after watching it for the ninth time, I'm still not tired of it. It's also quite entertaining messing with the transformable Optimus Prime DVD case. I was also able to pick up Transformers: The Game on the PLAYSTATION 3 for a mere $15. How did I get it so cheap? Some guy was selling it at GameStop and they would only give him $14, so I anted up.
Playing the game, I realized it's not really as bad as the scores it's getting. I won't go too in-depth, because I'm going to write a review up for it sooner or later.
If you guys noticed, I redesigned the site quite a bit, mainly font changes, and such. I think it looks better like this. I removed the shoutbox as well and added a much better IRC chat. It will probably always be empty, but at least its there.
I've been thinking about moving onAXIS soon to a hosted blog with my own money, but am still trying to gather a few things before I do this. I'm not sure if I'm going to do it yet, so expect about a month wait if anything is going to happen.
Anyway, thats all for tonight, I'm about to catch some z's, so I can get up a minute earlier than usual.
