Laugh if you will, but even with all the major AAA titles coming out on the PS3 this year it is EA Sports’ ‘FIFA 09’ that I am looking forward to most. I was hoping that EA would implement the PS3’s new trophy system into their footy sim, sadly that isn’t the case. Hit the jump to find out why.

Amazon, like many online retailers, are not usually the most credible sources but withe ammount of detail Amazon US have put into their listing for Resistance 2’s Collectors Edition, it seems hard not to believe them.

The game is listed at $79.99 and will include the usual things you’d find in a collectors edition. Hit the jump for the full list of Resistance 2 Collectors Edition goodies.

Life With PlayStation Delayed Again by Anthony Barlow

Sony’s other, far less interesting, free online service ‘Life With PlayStation’ was meant to come out this month but has been delayed again. Noam Rimon of SCEA and R&D said that “paperwork” was what was holding up the new service. It was also revealed that the service would work in conjunction with ‘Folding@Home’, so it’ll let us cure cancer whilst doing other stuff.

To be honest looking at the news and weather via my PS3 isn’t something that I really want to do so I can wait. Rimon said that we had to wait “a little bit longer”, which sounds like we’ll see it in September.

Like I said, it’s not that important but with another of Sony’s services being delayed it just seems to fuel the barrage of 360 fanboys saying “the PS3 is [insert insult here]”.

Today the Home beta client was updated to version 0.98. The new update has added various different places for you to go like the new Home Square. Not only that the update adds areas for you to listen to music and have the virtual you dance (above).

At 0.98 you’ve gotta believe that the magical 1.0 version of Home is coming soon. Hopeully that means that us non beta commoners will get to hang around in Home too.

We have just been informed that the ‘SOCOM: Confrontation’ public beta has been delayed. The beta, that was meant to kick off on September 1st (for GameStop pre-orderers), has been delayed to September 5th. It’s not too long to wait, which is good and because of this the beta will be extended to October 5th.

The Quore customers who get access to the beta are still going to get it on September 8th. Hopefully i’ll get in, even though i’m not in the U.S.
