  • Full Moon Show: Episode 35 Live! With Ryan away this week, the Full Moon cast welcomes back a suddenly well-rested Marcus Smith to the podcast. We discuss the Resistance 2 public beta and take a look back at this massive game’s journey from the concept phase to going gold. We also go nuclear with this episode’s “Mystery Guest” segment, as Fallout 3’s Executive Producer Todd Howard calls in to talk about Bethesda’s highly anticipated role-playing game. Download the podcast here.
  • Beta.MyResistance.net: The Resistance 2 beta isn’t the only news coming out of this Chimeran-infested universe these days. We’re also on the verge of launching a new community site; an early version is available for your viewing pleasure right now. The current features (user profiles, the “Resistance ticker,” customizable leaderboards, news section, etc.) are really just a small taste of what the full site will offer. It goes live on November 4, the same day that Resistance 2 reaches U.S. store shelves.

  • Thanks for the info. Nice to see some more info on the KZ story line.

  • Is it true that the next Qore episode will include a HOME invitation?

    i tought that HOME would be free.

  • You know, Insomniac has done two things for me this generation. I was never a big FPS player before, but Resistance made it enjoyable for me. And I’m still not a big online player… well, at least I could’ve have said that yesterday. Bravo on Resistance 2. I’m ACTUALLY enjoying the online gaming. You have my thanks, and what might be just as important (maybe), my money. :)

  • cool…. btw Jeff, gravatar makes my email all lowercase, so how do I change my PS blog’s email to lowercase?

    if you feel like giving out betas, I’m always available lol

  • woot I just got littlebigplanet

    • Thanks, just been busy with travel, etc. This is my first Saturday at home in, I think, 6 weeks?

  • Can’t wait to get me some GTA4 trophies as well as Burnout Paradise that I just picked up for 20 dollars thanks to Amazon.

  • Got my copy of LBP today, download servers are still not up for Nariko or Kratos….what’s up with that?

  • Killzone.com is quickly becoming my favouritre site with all the hype surrounding Killzone 2.

    P.S I purposely plugged on a second post to make sure it’s moderated.

  • Any news on PSN title Fat Princess?

  • @ Jeff
    Thanks for the update…
    Although there are some things I am not very pleased about with the new firmware updates for PSP and PS3. Such as when in remote play I try to browse on the web I can’t listen to music at the same time…this feature was already in there before update 2.5. Also why do videos stop when we press the PS Button… why?why?why? This feature was really awesome in previous firmwares… instead of pausing you can still watch it while scrolling through the XMB… this sucks.

    In all honesty I don’t like how Sony don’t have guidelines for games unlike the 360. The 360 was a solid machine from day 1. They have guidelines such as achievements in each game (this trophy thing on PS3 is a joke). Having PS3 as an open console poses few dangers and no full potential for the user. Anyway back to my 360.

  • @14

    “The 360 was a solid machine from day 1.”

    I just peed all over myself after reading that! Now to go clean up. Keep ’em coming, man, keep ’em coming!

  • yeah. listening to music and browsing the web at the same time used to be there in remote play before 2.50. And being able to sign out in remote play was there before 2.50 and now its gone….

    So did in video xmb, where the video didn’t auto pause.

    Please get Sony to bring these features back Jeff!

  • @hurtween

    Thanks for the heads up :)

  • @schwea

    Yeah other than the RROD the console was good.

  • @18

    I know, but RROD is a big deal. Check this out, it’s on Yahoo’s front page right now

  • There are a multitude of reasons why 360 sucks. They’re all overlooked because M$ bought all the RPG’s and Xbox Live is somewhat revolutionary (somewhat)

  • Where’s my Qore Annual Subscriber Resistance 2 beta code?

    Still waiting on that email…

    Thanks =)

  • @hijaker77

    I agree with you, but trust me, you aren’t going to get very far trying to convince a ton a fanboys that the 360 is just as good in many areas if not better than the ps3

  • There is a reason, after all, that PSN has been getting more features to catch up to Live ;)

    Still love PS3 though :P

  • Jeff,
    I see a lot of folks got LBP today from gamestop is there any way of getting the Servers on so we can Create and Share not just Play. Thanks Dude

  • The “Full Moon Show” podcast link above is broken. I went directly to http://www.insomniacgames.com/podcast/podcast.php to get it.

  • @27
    To clarify, I have *never* listened to the “Full Moon Show”, that is why I clicked the *broken* link. I hoped by posting my previous comment that I would let Jeff know the link was broken and, provide an alternative link until the *broken* link is fixed. I am not vouching for the “Full Moon Show”s quality of content.

  • @schwaa

    I know, and it’s okay. lol

  • hey Jeff if you’re still floating around the blog can you tell me how to get the little big planet tshirt “i was there week one” i think that’s what its called?

    thanks,
    Lh

  • @4
    thanks jeff

    PSN: IceBow ( first letter is an L)

  • Dj

    Sorry, can’t help it sometimes…I’ll shut up now

  • Why are there so many 360 fans trolling here?

    Nevermind, eh? I would have been happy with the PS2 stae oif online all over again, but the PS3 has been doing tons of thigns right to be honest.

    John Schappert the other day said he’s lie to move away from the bi annual updates for LIVE, so they can be more incremental. Shockingly like the PS3 firmware situation no?

    Sony is doing VERY good.

  • @hijacker77

    Dude the red ring of death is a big deal. Most everybody ive ever known with a 360 has gone through AT LEAST 3 systems. Thats a bit ridiculous. My brother is on his 5th system. And they still dont even acknowledge that there is a problem or even fix it. Leave it to microsoft to put out an inferior product AGAIN, just to be first out the door and steal from all the competition. (They did it with Apple way back in the day). They’ve never really innovated anything ever, and im not just talking about their gaming system. The only thing in my mind that they’ve ever gotten right was their live system, id have to agree they started with the best online experience available. However PS has rapidly been catching up and as far as exclusive games available on the networks, my little fanboy inside me tends to point toward the PSN. You just wait til Fat Princess, Flower and Crash Commando come out. Dont be a sheep and stick with the rest of the flock.

  • when does home come out?? can i has it?
    can you put skype on ps3 tomorrow please.

  • Hi Jeff, something you may want to pass on to Michael Shorrock over there… Back in August he announced on the PS3 blog that Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour instruments would be compatible. Fact is, they are not. Harmonix hasn’t said anything about it yet, but right now Mr. Shorrock looks quite the fool. I hope he can push Harmonix to patch RB2. Ironically, compatibility is fine on the Xbox.

  • This is the next “BIG” game because slant 6 is showing “SOCOM” is not that good. Bring on Killzone!!

  • LITTLE BIG PLANET.

    I got my copy on Sat. night. My Game Stop pre-order code dose not work. I called my local Game Stop and got them to give me another one, it did not work either.

    Can someone e-mail me another one, PSN ID jimmy903 or activate the ones that are already out? Thank you. I need me some Kratos Sackboy.

    Oh, and this is the best game ever made. If not then damn close. :)

  • @31
    I never said Sony was not doing good, and am not at all a 360 troll. I am simply saying to give credit where credit is due. I’m getting a PS3, actually, before I even get a 360, even though the 360 is cheaper now, Because I love the games coming up for PS3.

  • You guys need to overhaul your current marketing strategies to fit a broader demographic as opposed to just the tech-savvy. Make PS3 FUN!!!! and not grim or scary. Your current PS3 adds are atrocious at best, especially the way PLAYSTATION 3 appears at the end of your adds. This does not appeal to the general demographic. If you want to know what great adds are, look no further than the PS1 and PS2 adds. Snap out of it SONY. When will we be brought back to the glory days of playstation? Key word: Play. We need more appeal SONY, or else we’re done. U need to stop with these changes, and go back to what worked, i.e.-bring the color back into the playstation marketing emblem on the PS3 adds and on the boxes and everywhere. Be proud of playstation instead of trying to make it something that you feel fits company standards. People in general, right now, do not care about the PS3’s advance tech over our competitors, however, they do in fact care about the software and content of the system.
