Now this generation Sony has seen a big turn around. Not only are they the more sophisticated machine (Xbox topped the PS2 in that area). But they also have seen their market leader position slide away in exchange for the bottom of the list. This made us start thinking about what is Sony for a company. How do they perform? and how could they perform?

We start with the Pro’s. The Con’s have been uploaded. Click here for viewing the post.

Pro’s:

#1 Strong games line-up (First-Party): Sony has some great studios under their wings. Can someone say Sony Liverpool, Sony Santa Monica, Japan Studio, Sony San Diego and tons more. Read the rest of this entry »

Mirror’s Edge DLC for free!

12 07 2009

According to thesixthaxis the Mirror’s Edge DLC will be free. By downloading it for free you need to log into your UK account and download it. This sure makes it easier for people who are going for the platinum trophy since you now can do more time trails and obtain more stars.

This makes me wonder however. Why does Sony do this, remember the free Rag Doll Kung Fu Fists of Plastic action? Now I love the fact that they do it but why not advertise it? Anyways I’m happy and will start downloading it directly!

PC World sat down with Sony’s Eric Lempel and discussed everything surrounding firmware updates. Eric Lempel, for the ones who don’t know, is head of Sony’s  PlayStation Network.

He even went that far as joining the ‘hate camp’ of people who hate the overlay of the battery icon when the XMB is pulled up. Since more and more rumours are spreading about a new firmware update for the PS3 this sure is interesting to see what Erics take is on new and upcoming features.

Complete interview after the break:

Rachet & Clank ACiT - Clank Gameplay

Last week Insomniac announceded that they would bring pre-order bonusses for their newest installment of the Rachet and Clank series. Some of these bonusses included an extra level, early acces to weapons and other gadgets. As a big time Rachet & Clank fan I actually wasn’t that happy about it. Since Europe isn’t to pre-order heavy I thought that I was left out (again). But today Insomniac cleared this up with the following statement:
