Just played the F1 karting game. Found it dull really. Apart from the weapon powerups there was little to concern yourself with other than steering. Track (Germany) was bland.

New PlayStation Store returns to PSN

ron_aldo

6 years ago

In many ways it is an improvement; all game items are collated, searching is easier and everything is laid out cleanly. However, the adverts now intrude into the main content. For instance, you can't get a list of the latest add-ons quickly - you have to scroll to the far right of the "Latest > Add-Ons" section past the ads and select the final option "Latest Add-Ons"!

Bethesda says "we have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform" 30 days after Xbox 360 release

ron_aldo

6 years ago

I'm sure part of MS's deal with Bethesda included not being allowed to mention any PS3 release at all or having it submitted to Sony for approval. Hence the longer delay than 30 days. It's a shame they would rather spend money on timed exclusives for the big multi-platform games rather than creating something like Little Big Planet themselves

I am a web/application developer and I know it is very easy to encrypt passwords before they are inserted into the database. It should be standard practice and we do it regardless of how sensitive the information is. But having said that we have contracted work out sometimes and they haven't encrypted passwords on the database server

Don't have a problem with the length of time it is taking to make GT5. The only irksome thing is the constant marketing these last few years about it to keep it in the 'consumer's consciousness' .

btw: GT5 IS finished so he is entitled to start thinking about GT6. It's only red-tape now and manufacturing the disks.

HMV doing midnight Halo: Reach launch

I can understand being enthusiastic about a game (I've often bought a game on the day of release). Just that, personally, if I bought a game at midnight I wouldn't be able to play it long enough before my bed called me.

Or you can wait until the following morning and buy/play it then. And probably buy it much cheaper from supermarkets or other shops. I imagine HMV will be selling it for the RRP. Never understand why people go to these things. See also Harry Potter novels

Premium PSN reveal for E3?

So the choice will be the least popular and/or cheapest PSN games. I guess this is why so very few PS3 games support cutsom soundtracks. My own worry is that normal users will get a delay on free content like demos. 360 word it as Gold members getting them early of course
