Last week, Ubisoft sent me a preview build of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World for PlayStation Network. One thing it didn't tell me (and why in the hell not?) is that there's a secret code you can input on the title screen that will unlock zombie enemies. Why keep this from me, Ubisoft!? (more)

I feel like this is how marketing for games should be done. Instead of a trailer packed full of quick vertical slices, just give me unedited, lengthy footage of someone playing the game, preferably with narration to provide the necessary context for what's being shown. (more)

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Persona series

Wednesday, August 04, 2010 9:15:15 AM GMT
Last week was a nostalgia nightmare for many readers, as we were tasked with the challenge of picking which EarthBound (Mother) game was our favorite out of the series. Some were completely on board with the newer Mother 3, while some stood by the EarthBound game they grew up with, but most were torn over the choices and forced to weigh the pros and cons before making a careful decision. That's always the sign of a good debate! In the end, after much fist-shaking at Nintendo, here were the results: (more)

Wednesday, August 04, 2010 8:59:00 AM GMT
It's the moment that many of you have been waiting for: the Dev-Team's ultrasn0w carrier unlock for iPhone 4 is out. You'll find version 1.0-1 of ultrasn0w in Cydia on jailbroken devices. If not, just add the repo666.ultrasn0w.com repository. It works for iPhone 4 baseband 01.59 and 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04. If none of this makes sense then you've got no reason unlocking your device in the first place, buddy. (more)

PS3 firmware 3.41 updated, hard drive upgrade problems exterminated

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2546 days, 11 hours, 54 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 04, 2010 8:58:10 AM GMT
Sony has rolled out an update to the update, which fixes a major flaw found in version 3.41 of the PS3's firmware. An unintended consequence of the patch was that industrious hard drive upgraders found themselves staring at a disquieting error message when swapping out storage units, but Sony has acted swiftly and the very latest data update does not suffer from the issue. It's somewhat unhelpful that the upgrade-friendly firmware is still called 3.41, but we prefer companies that follow the "fix first, ... (more)

More People Getting DVDs From Library Than From Netflix Or Redbox Why rent the cow when you can borrow the milk for free? That seems to be the mindset of many Americans, as a new study claims that more DVDs are borrowed from libraries each day than are rented via Netflix, Redbox or Blockbuster. According to the survey released by the Online Computer Library Center, public libraries in the U.S. lend an average 2.1 million videos/day, which edges out the 2 million discs shipped by Netflix and almost as m...
