Alright everybody, we all know what happened yesterday, at Microsoft’s E3 - Final Fantasy XIII will now be released on the 360 as well as PS3. It is no longer a PS3 exclusive, however, the title Final Fantasy XIII Versus is still a PS3 exclusive, so it’s not all that bad.

Pain Receives Minor Update

13 07 2008


We’ve just been informed that PS3’s game Pain has received a minor update.

Nothing great appears to be within the update except just a few bug fixes and adverts for other games avaliable on the PSN store now appear on Pain’s loading screens. We’re guessing that the update is also preparing itself for it’s upcoming trophy update too. That’s right, we think trophies in Pain are not far off!

We’ve had a few people email us and have asked which games have, or will be receiving a patch to support PS3 trophies.

Games waiting for a patch to enable trophies:

Buzz! TV Quiz
Burnout Paradise
Heavenly Sword
PixelJunk Monsters
Street Fighter HD

Games which will be launched with trophies:

Devil May Cry 4 PS3 update: 4900MB HDD install, PSN support

28 12 2007

A few members of the NeoGAF forums were able to get hold of the latest copy of Famitsu magazine and learned a couple of exciting details about the PlayStation 3 version of Devil May Cry 4 (also on Xbox 360 and PC).

This latest iteration of the DMC franchise was originally a PS3-exclusive but Capcom ultimately decided to have it as well on other next-gen platforms.

Despite that, it seems that DMC 4 PS3 is given enough attention especially with these features:

* HDD install is 4900MB (4.9GB).
* Save files are 3392KB.
* Some variety of PSN support.
* 5.1 LPCM audio.

While the save file and audio details are nothing new, we are interested about the rather huge amount of space the HDD install requires. If this turns out to be accurate, then we may be on our way to having a really seamless gameplay experience.

There is still no word regarding the specific features for the Xbox 360 and PC build but we believe that Capcom will soon be keeping all of us posted.
