    Hirai announces upgraded PSN to arrive in Spring 2010

    Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai has announced a new and enhanced version of Playstation Network that should launch next spring. Fortune reports that Hirai suggested that the upgraded service will work with other Sony devices, including phones, cameras, and televisions. “It’s now a matter of what all the services need to look like for each device, and coming out with a rollout plan,” he said. “It’s like city planning here, and we can start small. We don’t need to build New York City overnight.” The goal is to make it easier for consumers. There was also a hint at a loyalty reward type system. Follow

    Fat Princess delayed until “Summer”

    Fat Princess was supposed to be coming to Playstation Network this week, but Sony’s Mike Kebby confirmed on the EU Playstation Blog that Fat Princess will not be coming out in June as promised. “The game is coming at some point this summer, but there is no confirmed release date at the moment.” The beta seems to be still running only no one was online when I tried to play it.

    PSN Cards Now Available in Canada!

    It’s been about a year since the PSN (Playstation Network) cards became available in the US. In that time, I have waited ever so impatiently for them to figure out how to bring the cards to Canada. I don’t like using my credit card to purchase points or Xbox Live time, and I am a huge fan of the pre-paid card. Well, a little birdy had informed me the PSN cards were finally on their way. And today while I was visiting at EB Games, they arrived! PSN cards are available in either $20 or $50 increments (same as our US neighbours). The first game I bought today was Q-Bert! Holding off now for Fat Princess because that game looks awesome! You can find me on the PSN: Yuki-Hime Follow

    Burn Zombie Burn for PSN

    Burn, Zombie Burn is the next big thing from Doublesix. It is an arena based shooter made specially for the Playstation Network. As one could guess from the title, the whole point of the game is burning zombies then shooting them. The game was made to have addicting gameplay, but still a very special personality. The game actually achieves both. The controls are pretty simple, so most people can just come in and pick it up. Left stick moves your character, and there is no camera to control. L1 points to the nearest zombie. R2 switches to secondary weapons. L3 shows where all the weapons are scattered across the field. X is shoot. The character always shoots directly in front of them. The good thing about the variety of weapons is that they don’t disappear until you use them. Items that are dropped from zombies will, though, so it’s best

    My First Impressions of HOME

    I was finally able to download the HOME Open Beta on Thursday. The download took several minutes but it automatically installed it as well. I had a few initial connection issues but I was able to get in and play around with it a little. First thing to do is to create your Avatar. They have some presets that you can build off of so I started with that and modified. The customization is somewhat in depth so you can create something close but not exactly like you. One of the best character customizations that I have seen so far have been in the Tiger Woods games and I was kinda hoping this would be similar. I was able to get something that resembles me but not really. LOL. You can shape and position your head, neck, cheeks, jaw, nose, eyes, ears, chin, and lips. There aren’t a lot of
