Global Remote Play within 6 months

I’m disappointed in this news. I was hoping this would be part of the march firmware update for Europe and the rest of the world. Being able to connect a external hard drive, digital camera, memory stick, etc. to the PS3 and having access to those files anywhere in the world via a wifi spot is a great feature. As it is right now, it’s just local remote play, and that’s kind of useless.

I wonder how it will work when remote play goes global. Do you need to have the PS3 powered on? Or can you just have it on stand by? I like the fact that you can also access your buddy list on the XMB and use the PS3′s web browser as well.

New Resistance Content April?

Phil Harrison had a little chat with Newsweek’s N’Gai Croal, and although they discussed a lot of stuff that will interest other people, the bit that caught my attention is that there could be new downloadable content coming in April for Resistance: Fall of Man:

We’re going to release additional content for Resistance. I don’t think we’ve gone into detail on the schedule, but we have some really, really cool things that will be extending the story, extending the locations, some brand new content, starting in April. So if that works well and is well-received by the audience, then that will keep the engagement with game going between now and should there be a sequel at some point in the future.

I’m not really a big fan of downloadable content (unless it’s free) so I’ll watch with interest what is made available, how much it will cost and how well received it turns out to be.

So what DLC would you like to see for Resistance?

Tekken 6 Playable Soon?

Tekken 6 was at the AOU arcade expo in Japan a couple weeks ago. And the trailer they showed just had a 2007 date. So I wondered when I could get my hands on this. I’m a huge Tekken fan myself.

Looks like a popular magazine in Japan got some juicy details from Bandai Namco. Tekken 6 will have a on location test before the weather gets hot. So depending on what they mean hot, it could be as early as May. But your guess is as good as mine.
