Devil may cry 4, ps3 version pulls ahead

Devil May Cry 4 (PS3)

* HDD install is 4900MB, which will eliminate load times very much like uncharted, drakes fortune which had zero loadtimes between levels, great news of course and how we want to play our games and for x360 only users, this is a ps3 feature only.

* Save files are 3392KB.
* Some variety of PSN support
* 5.1 LPCM audio, once again a ps3 only feature.

merry christmas, xmas, holidays or god jul på er

courtesy of www.örnskö

have a nice one and make sure you enjoy the few days that´s left of this year and since christmas has already passed happy new year aswell

Ah yeas, worldwise sales chart week ending dec 22.

PSP: 725,370
PS2: 623,899
PS3: 619,388
Xbox 360: 594,520

Wii is looking to get a realy strong 07 christmas, even tho we have one ourselves, besides our ps2, ps3, x360 and psp i realy dont understand how it can sell as much as it do, great for the big n but seriously, except for the casual fun that wii sports is, it doesnt have one single game experience that realy lasts or stand out compared to what other formats offer, and in all honesty, eye toy gave you what wii mote does years ago, a well it´s of no importance, it sells alot and that´s good fun for nintento and i guess for alot of elderly which is good for the entire media business.

Worthy of attention is that x360 is once again last in line of all the three current gen consoles (wii,ps3,x360) both in hardware and software sales.

Blu-ray get´s Digital playground support

If you enjoy sex and nudity then you´ll know what that means, if not, it simply means that Blu-ray has thanks to the ps3? managed to get Digital playground deciding on releasing it´s high def porn movies on the blu-ray format.

According to a dp spokesperson it all comes down to ps3 owners contacting the company asking them when they´ll start releasing their adult films on blu-ray and aparently Pirates (as featured in the image) will be the first porn movie from dp to get some blu-ray loving.

Blu-ray blows hd-dvd out of the water

Hollywood reporter article

It mentions how the paramount sell out didnt manage to even make a dent in the high definition movie war and how Blu-ray outsells hd-dvd in ever single region all over the world, it´s not just outselling, it´s completely tromping the competition, so please warner, end it all and just go blu so we can finaly get all our hd movie loving in one nice format named Blu-ray.

Warhark Omega dawn is officialy out in Sweden

Yep it´s now showing up in the warhawk store for swedish users aswell, 55 skr:- so just go ahead and get it

Omega dawn has been released

We noticed it happening earlier today, but decided that since some managed to download it for free (we decided not to download it) that we would hold off posting about it since aparently someone borked up.

Shortly after Omega dawn was released upon the world the psn store download was taken down and our warhawk built in store reports no new content to download, however some claims that they can still purchase it, not just for free tho, but paying up is fine so update warhawk to 1.2 and check out the new store tab in warhawk and if you´re lucky pick up omega dawn asap, there´s already quite a few servers up and running the new map and has been for a bunch of hours now.

The 1.2 update in itself is realy nice aswell, it´s great to see the ingame store and how easy it is to update Warhawk, no need to restart or anything and the new map layouts is a blast to play, the pace is wickedly high on some of the maps and frantic is now considered foreplay in the world of Warhawk.

Sadly tho we´ll have to wait for later tonight or tomorrow before being able to purchase Omega dawn since it doesnt show up in either the warhawk instore or psn but who knows, you might be luckier.

Folding at home, new features, music and auto shutdown

Some great new features are underway for Folding@home on the ps3.
A new update will bring with it the ability to play all your music that´s stored on the ps3 hd while you´re folding away and or tell folding to auto shut down your ps3 once done or once it reaches a specifiq time.

Warhawk 1.2 and Omega dawn faq

1.2 is due out anytime now, 10.00 GMT and that is today.

1.2 is as every patch will be free of charge, patches for warhawk will as history dictates for other games, fix bugs and issues and add new server side features, however they will also bring with them more layouts for existing maps and new game features, according to official news, the next free of charge patch 1.3 will bring with it new stuff for our beloved warhawk stormtroopers, a fancier word for groundtroops.

And tomorrow, Omega dawn will be out and once 1.2 is installed you´ll have two ways to purchase Omega dawn, through the PSN store or directly through warhawk, by doing it through warhawk you dont even have to restart the game, you purchase it and it will automaticly install and bam, pick a Omega dawn server and rock on, talk about a smooth process.

Read more in the official faq here.

Oh btw, Warhawk will continue to get booster packs like Omega dawn aslong as there´s demand for it, so hopefully Omega dawn will sell like crazy so we´ll get more maps and vehicles to play with in the future :)

Stage6 divx downloads to your ps3

Easy as pie according to ps3fanboy.

URL displayed by browser:

To download this DivX file to your DivX-enabled PS3, you're going to have to edit the video as such:

and that´s all there is to it, not that i personaly see anything worthwile with stage6, but alot of you do use the site.

Gizmodo, misinformed news and firmware 2.10

Aparently Gizmodo´s crew screwed up testing the recent 2.10 firmware, claiming you need wmp 11 to stream movies and music from your computer to your ps3, which is´nt the case, you can use wmp 11 but you can also use alot of other apps and devices, we do it all the time.

Another revelation according to gizmodo is that you cant play xvid files, well thing is, you can, we´ve tried it and it works, and with the exception of to old stuff, every xvid and divx movie we´ve tried works just fine, both streamed or stored on the ps3 hd and played from it, because unlike the x360, playstation can store your xvid and divx files on the internal hd.

Anyway, firmware 2.10 is a great update, bringing with it both divx and xvid support and blu-ray 1.1 and wmv support best of all, it´s up to you to decide if you want to stream your files or store them on your ps3.

Ah yes, the 2.10 update is out as of now, just hit system update in your ps3 menu and off ya go.

Europe, sales chart

From the week ending 16 December sales in Europe was as follows.

Wii 349,770
Ps3 257,325
Ps2 237,696
Psp 214,993
x360 172,401

Which brings Playstation 3 to 3,037,110 sold units in Europe.

The best selling active console in totals is still the ps2 with 45,354,391 sold units in Europe and since it´s still outselling the x360 Sony doesnt seem like it´s about to loose it´s crown here in Eu, especialy not now when the ps3 is steadily outselling the box aswell.

Which reminds me, that means that worldwide, the x360 is yet again last in line when it comes to sales out of the three new consoles (wii,ps3 and x360), sadly tho, alot of media is so NA focused that it´s still reporting ps3 to hold that not so intriguing last in line spot when it comes to sales per week.

Well the world is more then Usa and Canada and even tho we love those countries, worldwide sales are far more important then North american sales only, which odly enough doesnt seem to be how some view things.

Ps3 firmware 2.10 this week? inlcuding divx and blu-ray 1.1

According to spanish ps3 users the official spanish playstation website claims that´s the case and it lists both divx support and blu-ray 1.1 as the main new features supported by firmware 2.10.

Great news if true and i dont doubt it, we already know that Sony is about to unleash divx and blu-ray 1.1 so why not this week, anyway, this is great stuff for gamers, movie buffs and people in need of a media center solution.

Swedish sales chart, games week 49

1. Singstar Svenska hits Schlager (PS2)
2. Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock (PS2)
3. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
4. High School Musical: Sing It! (PS2)
5. Singstar Svenska hits (PS2)
6. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PC)
7. The Sims 2 Jorden Runt (PC)
8. Singstar (PS3)
9. Need for Speed Prostreet (PS2)
10. Uncharted Drake´s Fortune (PS3)

And the world seems to be evolving around, Singstar, undoubtedly a more then succesful franchise in Europe and a top ten chart that must be pretty enjoyable from Sony´s perspective atleast, to bad not that many singstar 3 mic bundles made it out before christmas, pretty sure that lowered initial sales for Singstar 3 since we had to seek and destroy just to find one single copy of singstar 3 with microphones.

Review.Singstar 3 - Ps3

Well this one is pretty straightforward, if you´ve ever played any Singstar then you know what you´re getting, what´s different is that Singstar 3 is the singstar concept perfected, the inclusion of the Singstore is so superbly done that you wish for all games to have an integrated store on the same level, or for that matter all online shopping to be as smooth and userfriendly as this.

The game itself is Singstar one more time, great if you´re a fan or newcomer looking for a userfriendly game that will entertain you and doing a great job of it, however it´s not for people that´s easily ashamed or people that cant let loose even on their own or even worse, not being able to sing and get crazy along with friends, because Singstar reaches it´s peak when played amongst a bunch of friends or family.

When played by such people that dont mind being the entertainment, then Singstar truly is a bliss, a game that´s as fun as it get´s without realy demanding anything by you, exept for having fun and letting go, which is of course why Singstar is the nr.1 party game in the world.

One warning tho, if you´re going to do a party and singstar thingy, put a lock on your creditcard, the singstore is so smoothly integrated that you just dont see any difference browsing your singstar content or browsing the store, it´s so convenient and nicely designed that you´ll end up paying through your noose if people get drunk enough and just has to have that song and that song and that one :)

And well, that´s the only downside with Singstar 3, it´s in other words the Singstar experience so far and for most of the part in HD.

As for playing the game, 15 minutes into our first playthrough we had chewed through twisted sister´s we´re not gona take it and a few other songs + purchased 10 more songs from Singstore and it´s with no regrets and no hesitation, one thing is clear, we´ll purchase alot more songs as they get available in the weekly updates that´s bringing more content to Singstar 3 and it´s singstore.

As of now, most Singstore songs is in standard definition, which is a shame since the included songs are all in HD, but we´re sure future additions will see HD titles aswell, HD or SD songs will of course be down to the original source material.

Anyway, to sum it up, if you enjoy partying, singing or have a bunch of wacky friends or family and just enjoys a good time, then Singstar 3 for playstation 3 is a must buy.

Score: 9.2 out of 10* if compared to other games, 9.9 out of 10* if we´re only talking about the world of Singstar and karaoke games since it´s the best one yet and realy coudnt have been done any better at this point of time.

Psn prepaid cards early 2008

well it wont make a difference for me or my family from a personal point of view, we already purchase a ton of stuff from psn, (latest purchase was today, 10 songs for singstar 3 on ps3) and our next one will be omega dawn for warhawk.

But it´s a great thing for all those without credit cards or as giftcards (which we´ll use em for)

happy reading

warhawk 1.2 specifiqs

Well if you´re like us you cant enough of warhawk so here´s some specifiqs from the soon to be released free 1.2 update.

5 new layouts (4 to 8 player layouts)

* Eucadia: High City
* Island Outpost: Standoff
* The Badlands: South City
* Destroyed Capitol: Garden Showdown
* Archipelago: Close Corridors

Other updates includes, but arent limited to

Buddy slot reservations which makes sure that if you started the server, your friends will always be able to connect, so no need to lock down a server completely, great news!

And finaly, just like games like Singstar, warhawk will from now on have their own integrated psn store, great stuff once again, you´ll still reach all your warhawk stuff on the regular psn store, but if you´re already gaming (warhawk that is) no more need to hit xmb and then visiting the store, just check out and purchase or download whatever you need straight from the game. Can we hope for an integration on the same extraordinary level as the singstore.

+ lot´s of game fixes and so forth.

Warhawk news, free 1.2 and 1.3 update on route

1.2 will get a worldwide release come, december 19 followed the day after by warhawk´s first add on pack omega dawn (new "boss" type 7 person multiplayer vehicle + one new map with 5 layouts and updates to the original games maps to allow for the new drop ship.).

Once 1.2 and omega dawn has been roled out 1.3 will hit the world of warhawk sometimes in 2008, best of all, this free of charge update will not just contain fixes and updates to available game content, it will contain new content aswell which has to do with troops.

More news is that 1.2 (due out 10.00 gmt, 19 December) will come with free layout updates even for those whom wont pick up omega dawn, great stuff and playstation 3´s best online shooter just keeps on getting better, upping the anté for games like unreal tournament III and killzone 2 and others, not that it´s the same thing, they can side exists, but it´s great to see such an affordable quality game getting improved so heavily upon this early on in it´s lifespan.

Let´s hope it get´s rewarded with tons of new players and even more quality servers.

The HD war, one more blu-ray week

let´s forget worldwide for a short while, not because hd-dvd won in a non na region, but because blu-ray´s lead is even bigger worldwide, so let´s forget that and just look at last weeks North america numbers.

Over 3:1 in favour of Blu-ray and 8 out of the top ten was blu-ray movies, not to mention that blu-ray´s top movie outsold hd-dvd´s top movie by a 8-1 margin.

Ah yes, what does it mean in %? Blu-ray has 76% of the hd market in north america in other words and hd-dvd 24%.

Ps3 overtakes x360 in totals in France

Yep, Playstation 3 has already sold more then x360 in totals in France, despite x360 having a year lead the ps3 has surpassed it in total amount of units sold a pretty nice performance by Sony, but then again, here in Europe, ps3 outsells x360 month by month so it´s a given that sooner or later the ps3 will get ahead in totals aswell, but it did happen sooner then we had expected.

The PlayStation brand by far dominates the French market, with more than a third of hardcore gamers being "equipped" with a PS2, while 13% are still enamoured with their PS1. The Wii comes next, with 11% of the gamers owning Nintendo's product. The Xbox trails the Wii with 10%, while the Xbox 360 has only 4% market share, even behind its later-arrived rival PlayStation 3 (5%). The good-ol' GameCube is still young and fresh, at 8% market share."

Not sure how they came to the conclusion that 8% is still using a gamecube or that 13% are still stuck with a ps1, but that´s what they claim so that almost gives playstation a 50% marketshare in France.

Tuesday, December 11, 2007 game of the year award 07 nominees for the game of the year 07 award list makes for a fun reading, sad but still fun, Aftonbladet is Swedens biggest newspaper so it´s a big letdown to see them put up games like kane and lynch dead men but not Uncharted, drakes fortune..

Now, aftonbladet is as bad as they are big so it´s of no real surprise but seriously, no one claiming to be serious can put up a game of the year award for 07 and feature kane and lynch and not even have uncharted on the list.

Uncharted is amongst the top games this year, regardless of platform and Assassins creed is a good game but still with alot of issues and repetitive gameplay so while it deserves it´s place on the list for it´s environments alone and artistic merits Uncharted still is alot more fun and with higher value points, sure it´s all about personal preferences in the end, but not even having it on the list is a joke considering some of the games being featured, i mean, crackdown wasnt directly a showstopper and the darkness was a big letdown both technicly and storywise, still a good game tho but still far worse then Uncharted, drakes fortune and well, we shoudnt even mention Lost planet making it to the list, talk about a supbar experience, didnt entice me enough to play it a second time after giving it a few good hours the first playthrough, heck Warhawk which is a multiplayer only game for a very affordable price on psn is ten times as fun and looks better aswell.

Which reminds me, warhawk´s missing aswell, quite funny to see two of the best ps3 games not even show up while quite mediocre games from other platforms is there, the only decent ps3 games to be nominated is heavenly sword and ratchet and clank and motorstorm and resistance.

funniest thing is, More brain training from dr Kawashiwa is nominated.

Some of the nominated games.

Kane and lynch, dead men.
Assassins creed.
The darkness.
Lost planet.
Heavenly sword
More brain training from dr Kawashiwa, game of the year 07

Update: Even more fun, i just discovered that uncharted, drakes fortune is listed as one of the best newcomers so it isnt even that they missed the game or forgot to mention it, they aparently think the nominees are better. A well, to each his own, taste is individual. Anyway, click this link and vote for Uncharted.

Uncharted, drakes fortune, best newcomer, 2007

Update 2: Here´s the link to gameconsole of the year 2007 if you feel like casting your vote on playstation 3, wii or x360.

Console of the year 2007

GT5P, 39 out of 40 by famitsu

Yep, it´s a demo (the third one actually) of a game that´s due out sometime in 2008 and still famitsu the world famous mag, known for it´s to the point reviews, which will cause a pack of gamers to buy or sidestep games give´s it an unheard of 39 out of 40 score.

Compare that to forza 2 getting 36/40, which of course by famitsus standards still is a realy good score.

This most likely means ps3 will propell it´s sales up, up and away for december in Japan, great little christmas present for the playstation 3 and polyphony digital.

Hd-vmd in real life test

The player NME ML777S is noisy but delivers a decent picture and sound quality on Mel gibsons the apocalypto, however it has issues with panoramas since it doesnt support 1080p 24 and it lacks the content of blu-ray and worst of all, it´s dvd upscale is horrible, it´s ugly looking and several movies kills the player...

Despite the player freezing, which could be credited to a monday morning example, the picture quality when upscaling dvd´s is plain and simply ugly! and the lack of hd movie support makes this a big no no in our humble opinion.

If you´re looking for a true HD movie format, go with blu-ray or hd-dvd(which we think you should avoid since blu-ray is sweeping the stage globaly, kind of stupid to buy into a format that looks like it´s going to extinction, but we might be wrong) anyway, hd-vmd should be left in the dust when you decide which hd movie format to go with.

Console sales, Europe

Numbers from the week ending 9 December here in Europe.

Wii 269,649
PS3 195,606
PS2 170,607
PSP 164,716
X360 143,621

Amazing to see how good ps2 keeps selling now that christmas is around the corner, looking at numbers like that and the fact that the ps2 sold better this year then last year it´s no wonder sony will release yet one more ps2 version during 2008, with healthy sales numbers for all it´s consoles Sony has realy pulled off a nice 2007.

Gt5 ad in Japan

lol, quite a hilarious one and worthy of your time blu-ray deals

As usual there´s a ton of discount prices and special deals going on over at amazon and with christmas just around the corner getting some Blu-ray loving for less then usual isnt wrong.

Both new movies like spiderman 3 and older classics like terminator 2 are available for lower then ever prices, couple that with the 6 blu-ray movies free of charge if you´ve just purchased your playstation 3 or standalone blu-ray player and is more then worth a visit., Blu-ray section

Warner leaning towards blu-ray only

As the topic states, warner is leaning towards dropping their hd-dvd support and focus on blu-ray only, currently warner supports both formats but since they sell alot more blu-ray movies and the blu-ray format in general outsells hd-dvd worldwide by a big margin it´s only logical to drop the loosing side.

Great win for ps3 and Sony and blu-ray consumers if that would be to happen, heck in the longrun it would be good for every consumer out there.

Michael bay pt III. Blue-ray vs hd-dvd

I´ll say no more then to qoute michael bay, who is currently locked to hd-dvd only so nope, he´s not a blu-ray only person speaking out trying to protect his format, this is simply how it is qualitywise for Michael bay.

Does anyone here want to challenge what I feel suits my films better in terms of look? I see every frame of my films over a hundred times before it is ever released. I know the lighting conditions I shot it and the result on the DI. I know the range. I know what the final product should look like - Blu-ray suits my films better.

Simple and sweet

Blu-ray 1.1 for ps3 later in december

It´s finaly here, the rumoured blu-ray 1.1 update for the beloved ps3

Meanwhile, a Sony rep cited internal research suggesting that over 80% of all PlayStation 3 owners had watched at least one Blu-ray movie on their systems. It was also revealed that the Blu-ray profile 1.1 firmware update for the PS3 is expected to be made available for download later this month.

That qoute took place during a home media magazines High-Def 2.0 seminar, great news for people looking for the ultimate hd movie experience and great news for current ps3 owners since our precious console just keeps on getting better.

And during the same seminar, Disney confirmed that Finding Nemo and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will both feature PiP video.

Monster Madness, japanese rts

pixeljunk monster

Ouch, how´s that for a different combination, a Japanese rts, you know rts games havent done to good in Japan previously atleast, but Pixeljunk Monster is developed by a Japanese studio for Japanese gamers, well of course they prefer it if we buy it aswell here in Europe and Usa but it´s prime target is Japan.

And look no further then to the image in this post, the art style is pretty crazy for a ps3 game, lol but still, it´s a psn only game, will sell for just a few $ and you have multiplayer and singleplayer so i can see the replay value of this game being realy high.

Folklore packs underway

Later this month two new gamepacks for Folklore will see the light of the day @ psn.

Each dlc will come with a new custome for the main character, 4 new quests and a new folk to battle it out with and as that isnt good enough, more packs are underway aswell.

Michael bay speaks about blu-ray and hd-dvd

Ouch, the outspoken Michael bay has done it again and one has to aplaud a director locked into hd-dvd that speaks up so loud and well about blu-ray, anyway, this is a man that´s not content with seeing his movies on hd-dvd only.

In other words, prepare for Michael bay and his movies to hit blu-ray sooner then later.

What you don't understand is corporate politics. Microsoft wants both formats to fail so they can be heroes and make the world move to digital downloads. That is the dirty secret no one is talking about. That is why Microsoft is handing out $100 million dollar checks to studios just embrace the HD DVD and not the leading, and superior Blu Ray. They want confusion in the market until they perfect the digital downloads. Time will tell and you will see the truth.

As you can see, Michael bay blaims Microsoft for keeping Hd-dvd in the race even tho the hd-dvd format is so totally outgunned and outperformed by Blu-ray

And here´s the link to Michaels own post Guess the hd-dvd camp will try to blaim Michael for being drunk again like they did last time he spoke up :)

Ouch, one more region and one more gory defeat for hd-dvd.

Looking back at 2007 through the entire year, blu-ray has outsold hd-dvd by an almost 6:1 margin and yes, that´s for hd movies being sold in Australia.

And thus, Video chain video ezy is now joining blockbuster as a blu-ray only supporter.

A big copy and paste from e.ons official vue christmas newsletter, but vue is a breakthrough app when it comes to landscape and scenery, it´s gone from a enthusiast, artist application to a industry standard in just a few generations and grows better and better with each new iteration while still managing to keep that ease of use, great app and the artist versions are more affordable then ever so give it a try, or download the free of charge ple for v6i or v6xstream.
