Sony have launched the MyPSN service in Europe. Similar to Microsoft’s Xbox.com, MyPSN allows users to view their friends list and such when they’re away from the PS3 as well as allowing users to make their own ‘portable ID and view upcoming events. The service is going to be expanding though. The website states that the service will soon incorperate Sony’s trophy system which is nice as well as some other pretty cool features. Hit the jump for my ID to give those not in Europe (or those who can’t be arsed) a look at what to expect. Continue reading

The first question that entered my head upon hearing what was going to be available for Rock Band next week was “What the hell is up with Harmonix?”. It seems like they might, hopefully for one week only, be aiming for a younger/more emo audience. You’ll see what I mean when you hit the jump. Continue reading

In a conference call this week Ubisoft confirmed that a sequel to the successful, yet not so critically acclaimed, stealth action game Assasins Creed is in the works. The Montreal based developer have not yet released anything on the game and would not even give it a tentative release date. An Ubisoft executive did say that they will release the game when there’s “more anticipation for it”.

Oh come on Ubi, stop messing about. After Prince Of Persia, this game will be top priority. I think we can expect to see this possibly at the end of next year or early 2010 at the latest.

To both 360 AND PS3. It had previosuly been thought that an upcoming demo of Resident Evil 5 would be coming exclusively to Xbox 360. This has now been clarified and it has been confirmed PS3 fans can expect to see the demo too. The demo had previously been confirmed for just Japan but it will be coming to European and North American users too.

The demo is scheduled for December 5th in Japan, but those of us in the West can expect to see it after that date. Could it be that it isn’t coming this year? No idea, we can still get it from Japan though.

Those of us in Europe had a minor update on Tuesday to coincide with the great update those in North America had. Sadly, our full update couldn’t really match that. Europe finally gets it’s hands on Capcom’s Pirate based RTS, Age Of Booty, in both full and trial form. We also got a demo for GTi Club+ as well as the regular stuff from LBP, Rock Band, GH:WT e.t.c. Hit the jump for the full list. Continue reading

A D+Pad source has apparently leaked what Sony have planned for 2009. The unnamed source apparently sat in on SCEE’s Annual Briefing in London and heard some rather cool things. Sony have come out and said that it is all “rumor and speculation”, but that isn’t a denial is it. Hit the jump for the details. Continue reading

Destroy All Humans: Path Of The Furon was scheduled for release in America next week, well it’s not any more. THQ have cancelled the game citing “development issues” on the PS3 as the problem. There has been no clarification on what those “issues” were, but personally I can’t see anyone really missing this one. The game is still on course for release on Xbox 360. I think it might be that THQ pretty much fired everyone, maybe that’s what the “issues” were.
