PSN Europe Down Yet Again!

PSNIm

***Update 20/11/2011 15:38 – Appears to be back up and running now***

So PSN is randomly down again (at least in Europe anyway) and already people have started to worry that it’s the work of those dastardly hackers again (why don’t they just get a life – or a girlfriend!). Still there’s no reason to assume the worst as yet.

Most likely the maintenance that occurred on the 16/17th November has caused some problems that they’ve realised they have to go in and fix. Still, I’ve had to be a virtual Columbo to even find any info about this – you’d think Sony would have learnt their lesson about keeping customers informed by now wouldn’t you? Apparently not.

HTC EVO 3D – OTA Update And 3D Games Galore

This is the promised (and much delayed) video of the recent OTA update from HTC, for European unbranded HTC EVO 3D’s. The OTA update installs 3 3D games; “Ultimate Spider-Man Total Mayhem 3D,” “Need For Speed, Shift 3D” and “The Sims 3D”  – and apparently also includes an important security update. I originally blogged about this update here: http://goo.gl/zAyMl.

Chances are that by now most EVO 3D owners already have this update (or found it was already installed on recently purchased EVO 3D’s), but just in case anyone hasn’t received the update or is considering buying this phone and wants to see what 3D content is available for it – I thought I would still post this vid. πŸ™‚

Killzone 3 With Sharp Shooter Has Landed

Well, I went and bought it today:

                                       IMAG0180IMAG0182IMAG0183

I’ve only had time for a little play – but I must say I’m mightily impressed so far.  It’s obviously been very well thought out with all of the buttons you could wish for in easy reach.  It feels right too.

I’ve always thought that the ideal way to play shooting games would be with a decent gun peripheral that allows you to accurately aim at assailants on screen and pick them off properly.  This seems to do the trick.  When first seen I thought the position of the Nav controller – hanging beneath the barrel would feel awkward in gameplay, but not a bit of it – it actually works really well.

This control figuration MASSIVELY enhances gameplay – but be assured of one thing – this WILL make your arms tired – but it’s worth it.  No pain no gain!

A full review to follow soon.
