News - More MVC3 leaks! Sony watches your Porn and Kirby will suck!


We have more rumors, leaks and awesomeness and let’s be short because you just might want to see the goods starting with:

1.  This is a leak picture of the possible Select Your Character Menu for the upcoming MVC3. So far so good we will have to wait if this is the final version of it or if it will change when the DLC is installed.

2. Two videos apparently have been leak showing the extended intro of the game plus *spoiler warning* revealing the main boss/villain of this game. Want to know? Just click on the videos below. The videos are being taken down by Capcom on YouTube so if the embedded one is deleted try to find it in other sites.





*UPDATED FEB. 1st* Sony watches your porn… HDD problems



*Update* Apparently newer and older versions of the PS3 are being affected by the new Firmware update 3.56. Which is blocking the access to the HDD for further updates, so if you haven't updated, don't until Sony fixes this issue or if you already updated and nothing happened, you are a lucky bastard. This are the following models that are being affected by this issue:


Original Playstation 3 Model:

CECHH
CECHJ
CECHK
CECHL
CECHM
CECHP
CECHQ

Slim Playstation 3 Model:

CECH-20..A
CECH-20..B
CECH-21..A
CECH-21..B
CECH-250.A
CECH-250.B
CECH-250.A
CECH-250.B
CECH-251.A
CECH-251.B

If you want more info check the NeoGaf and HighDef Forums

* End Update*

The next firmware update for the PS3 might get interesting. The people at NeoGaf have stated that the 3.56 firmware for the PS3 will have a rootkit that will allow Sony to and I quote: “Download and run code when you login to PSN. The code they can run is obviously to check for CFW or whatever, but the code could change to check for anything really.” – User Vagabundo. In other words Sony can now actually “hack” or run some codes inside your PS3 to check the content of it and Ban you if the PS3 has been changed in anyway and the worst thing about it is that they can do it without your knowledge.

For a better understanding of this rootkit I quote what NeoGaf have to say about this:

“For those who are curious about the new PS3 security, it seems Sony has implemented something in 3.56 I mentioned here a few weeks ago that is the same as Microsoft uses to detect and ban 360's. Mathieulh just posted about it on IRC.

Essentially Sony can now remotely execute code on the PS3 as soon as you connect. This can do whatever Sony wants it to do such as verifying system files or searching for homebrew. Sony can change the code and add new detection methods without any firmware updates and as the code executes remotely there is no reliable way to forge the replies.

Whilst it is possible to patch or remove this code from the firmware this will likely mean the end of playing CFW online (as PSN can just check before login that this is active) or at the very least mean it will be even easier for Sony to detect and ban users. Judging from the fact that people can still connect using the proxy method it seems Sony hasn't activated any of this yet but the functions are there in the new firmware.”

Sony we love you… we love… we…. Oh who am I Kidding wtf Sony? Isn’t this like some kind of violation to my privacy maybe? Go and watch porn in your VAIO please…
  
Kirby will SUCK! Definitely SUCK in the next game!


Trailer showing the next Kirby game can be describe like… KIRBY WILL SUCK AGAIN! YAY! More eating your enemies and stealing their souls! Just awesome!

News - The New PSP NGP, MVC3 rooster is finally complete, Samus will not be affected by Boob Physics


The New PSP NGP Reveal!

Today it’s being very interesting, although rumors and hype were ruing by the huge leak of info (Sony you really suck at it) from the past months, we finally have information the next PSP2, ladies and gentleman we present to you: THE NGP!

The NGP is the successor of the PSP which was reveal at the PlayStation Meeting 2011 in Tokyo. During the day this news has been updated so until now I present you what has been said about this new Next Generation Portable (NGP):

  • The Hardware specifications of the NGP have been release:
  • It’s been announce that this piece of technology will be “affordable” for everyone. If you remember during the PS3 launch era for Sony “affordable” meant at least 600$ Dollars, so if my calculations are correct… the NGP might be sell between 200$ - 800$ knowing how Sony understands “Affordable”.
  • Speaking of affordable GameStop has priced the NGP for 999.99$... wait what? Although is no official price it was a huge mind f*ck for many people on the internet, people there is NO OFFICIAL PRICE at the moment so stay tune till Sony announces the prices for later this year.
  • According to Sony: "NGP will be able to play PSP titles, [PSP] minis, [PSOne] classics, video and comics from the PlayStation Store." In other words… more money for them woohooo…
  • Not all NGPs will have 3G support, Sony announced that the NGP will come in different versions and apparently only 1 version of the NGP will feature 3G and that the service will cost extra. All other versions will have Wi-Fi support. According to Sony Europe’s Andrew House “So the user gets a choice, Wi-Fi is available wherever, which clearly is the most important aspect of connectivity and that connected experience; 3G will be a subset of that.”  It’s still unclear which version will have 3G and how much extra will have to be pay for more functionality.
The Following is the Press Release by Sony:

Tokyo, January 27, 2011– Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today announced its next generation portable entertainment system (codename: NGP), which delivers the ultimate portable entertainment experience. NGP will make its debut at the end of the year 2011.

NGP is designed to offer unparalleled interactive entertainment that is only possible on PlayStation®. This new system offers a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context, made possible by leveraging SCE’s experience from both PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) and PlayStation®3 (PS3®) entertainment systems.

Deep and immersive gaming is at the core of PlayStation’s DNA, and NGP is the latest embodiment of this vision. By having both Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity, together with various applications, NGP will enable infinite possibilities for users to “encounter,” “connect,” “discover,” “share” and “play” with friends wherever they are. Within the device are a range of features that provide a genuinely cutting-edge, next generation ultimate portable entertainment experience.

Stunning OLED and Revolutionary User Interface
NGP incorporates a beautiful multi-touch 5-inch organic light emitting display (OLED) as the front display. A high-performance CPU / GPU combined with OLED enables rich, visually striking graphics never seen before on a portable entertainment system, for both games and other digital entertainment content. The new system also incorporates a unique multi-touch pad on the rear, and together with the front touch display, NGP offers new game play allowing users to interact directly with games in three dimension-like motion, through “touch, grab, trace, push and pull” moves of the fingers.

Super Oval Design and Dual Analog Sticks
While succeeding the basic design philosophy of PSP, NGP adopts the Super Oval Design form factor, created to fit comfortably in users’ hands. For the first time, a portable entertainment system will feature two analog sticks, which enable a wider range of game genres to be brought into the portable experience.

LiveArea™
Every game title for NGP will be provided with a space called “LiveArea™” where users can share the fun and excitement with other players. Users will have access to the latest information of games provided from SCE and 3rd party developers and publishers through PlayStation®Network. Additionally, NGP users will be able to view an “Activity” log that is constantly updated with accomplishments from users who are playing the same game, which in turn can trigger active real-time communication among users.

Near
SCE will also provide location-based services on NGP as part of the basic features utilizing PlayStation Network. The new application called “Near,” developed specifically for this service and the network, will be pre-installed in the system to let users find out what their friends in the vicinity are playing now or what they were playing recently. Users can meet their friends and new players virtually, regardless of what games they are playing, simply by sharing their game information across different dimensions of time and distance.

New Game Medium
NGP adopts a new game medium, a small flash memory based card, dedicated for NGP software titles. Taking advantage of the flash memory feature, this innovative card can store the full software titles plus add-on game content or the game save data directly on to the card. By adopting flash memory based card, SCE will be able to provide game cards with higher capacity in the future, allowing developers to store more game data to deliver rich and immersive games.

NGP will also come equipped with two cameras on its front and rear, as well as three motion sensors, gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass, all of which are designed to enable users to enjoy the world of entertainment that is linked with real life experiences.
PlayStation®Suite (PS Suite), announced today, will also closely coordinate with NGP. The newly developed and released game content for Android™ based portable devices can also be enjoyed on NGP. As a result, users will have access to not only the most leading-edge content, but also some of the more casual experiences that typify the mobile market place.

SCE will vigorously promote NGP towards the launch as the next generation portable entertainment platform and deploy various measures to further expand the portable gaming market.



In other news… after reading this is anyone interested on the PlayStation Phone? Anyone??? Oh right… worst-kept secret of all time…



Marvel VS Capcom 3 finally announces 
its lasts 2 characters of its rooster.


The last two characters of MVC3 have finally been revealed and believe it or not this ones were expected by players around the world.

On the side of Capcom we have the lovely undead Hsien-Ko from Darkstalkers:



And on Marvel side the huge mutant hunter, the Sentinel:


In other news people rages against Capcom for not giving the fans Lord Raptor, Gene, Frank, Strider, or Megaman. Now we can be sure to see them on a 5 or 15 dollar DLC… greedy bastards…

Samus will not be a playable character in 
Dead or Alive: Dimensions


In a interview with Head of Team Ninja, Yosuke Hayashi by Eurogamer, said the following:

“The concept of this game is basically to create the best version of Dead or Alive. Actually for the Metroid collaboration, we had help from Nintendo and they’re really friendly with us. But the concept of Dead or Alive as the best version of the game means Samus Aran or Metroid is something different. That’s why we are not focusing on that in terms of the concept. So talking about Samus Aran, is she playable or not? This time she’s not playable. But Samus Aran will be shown in the game. She comes to help the player. That’s the collaboration shown there. But how you can unlock Samus Aran? Please find out by yourself.”

Why not a playable character you may ask? I don’t know there was no problem adding a Spartan from Halo on DOA3, maybe Nintendo doesn’t want them to try their jiggle boob physics on our favorite bounty hunter… yeah right.

News January 25, 2011 - PSP2 leak, MW2 unhack, Pachter is an ass, Duke Nukem!!!

PSP2 leaked info: 3G and OLED


Sony... we love how you can't keep your secrets now, I'm even thinking your are just leaving those secret on purpose on a café next to your building... but what can be done?

Information about the PSP2 got leaked through Japan's Nihon Keizai Shimbun Newspaper unveiled some additional information about the features the future PSP2 will have:

  •  3G Connection (You can download games and played them without an intenret WiFi connection).
  • An OLED Screen. Don't know what this is? Click me here.
  • WiFi.
  • Button Controlls
It's not yet confirm if this rumors are true but all we can do is wait for Sony's Press Conference next January 27th in Japan and see the truth behind the next N-Gage of this generation... or Taco if you want to call it that way...


Infinity Ward will actually fix the MW2 hack?

Apparently Infinity Ward will actually take action on the massive hacking the PS3 had. If you don't recall, the PS3 got hacked during this month (January) and people playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been experiencing an unpleasant surprise being attacked constantly by hackers (Aimbots, mods, etc.).

From the Infinity Ward's Forums we got the following from Robert Bowling (Twitter: @fourzerotwo):

"I just left a security meeting with the coders here at Infinity Ward where we discussed a lot of solutions. I feel good about the meeting, but of course I can't go into detail on the possible solutions we discussed as we don't want to give out any information that could potentially hinder the security any further.

Once I have more information, I will post it here. 

The key factor I want you to know is, that while any update takes time, we are looking to make the process as quick as possible and nothing is being left unattended.

Our main focus right now is on:

1) Preventing hackers from affecting legitimate players.

2) Addressing users who have already been affected. "

Glad at least the issue is being fixed but how much time will it take to be fixed? only time will tell but this will be a relief for some frustrated PS3 users, we recommend to actually not buy the PS3 version of the game if you are interested in playing it for now. In other news DO NOT buy MW2 on any other console.

Speaking of which...

Pachter: "PS3/PC Black Ops players are 'Crybabies'"


*Image brought to you by Destructoid :D*

This is something interesting... apparently we don't have an opinion anymore, we can't complain if something is broken. Michael Pachter has slammed Gamer's Voice (which filed the complains en behalf of the PS3 and PC players).

From Pachter: ”All games are buggy, some more so than others. Have you tried Fallout: New Vegas? Buggiest game ever," he replied. "I suppose this helps to explain why the game sold only 20 million copies instead of 25 million, and why it received only a 90 metacritic rating instead of 95 (sarcasm intended, in case you didn't pick up on it). If people don't like it, they can take it back to retail for a refund. Most bugs are patched within a reasonable time, and any serious gamer expects bugs."

Mr. Pachter apparently you really don't know who are this "Crybabies". This are the guys or girls that buy your games, who spend up to 60 dollars! and if a game is not what you are selling it, if it's buggy as hell we have the right to give our opinion about it. If a game is bad the internet will say it, if theres something wrong we will point it out so next time measure your words next time you corporate guy...
