Well another mystery Tekken 6 character has been revealed and his name is Bob, click the image for a larger view. Here is some info about Bob.
Known as martial arts genius, with his toned body and handsome face he was very popular. However when he was unable to beat opponents who were larger than he was, Bob became determined to engineer his body to increase power and weight while maintaining speed. For this reason, Bob disappears from the fighting world.
A few years later after completing his body engineering… Everyone around him is shocked at his appearance! Although people are not taking Bob seriously anymore, he is confident about his new found strength. To test his new found power he enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
Well, it should be interesting to see Bob in action, lol. We should see some video of him in action September 15th. Please Sony give us a demo of this game
I just got the following press release from SCEE, and they mention both a downloadable and a BD (Blu-ray Disc) version of GT5 Prologue. I have a feeling that they won’t give the PSN version away for free and charge for the BD version…
Start your engines for Gran Turismo™5 Prologue
New prequel an early taste of Gran Turismo 5 for PLAYSTATION®3 – A taste of Gran Turismo 5 for PLAYSTATION®3 is here at the end of this year – Up to 16-player online racing on PLAYSTATION®Network – a Gran Turismo first! – Over 40 dream cars, High Definition graphics, new physics engine… and a TV channel
The real driving simulator that’s sold 50 million units is back: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) and Polyphony Digital are pleased to announce Gran Turismo™5 Prologue, a prequel title showcasing the forthcoming Gran Turismo™5 for PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) – available both on Blu-ray disc and as a download from PLAYSTATION®Network (PSN) at the end of this year. Gran Turismo on PlayStation is one of the most successful global gaming franchises of the last ten years – renowned for its realism, quality of design and in-car physics technology – now, with the power of PS3™ behind it, it’s going to be unstoppable.
Here are three more videos from the Call of Duty 4 Xbox 360 beta. Of course, this isn’t PLAYSTATION 3 footage, but the PS3 experience should be much the same. Unfortunately, the quality of these videos isn’t all that great.
Unlike some other videos, these actually show a lot of the GUI before getting into the game, which is cool.
They note two things that perked my interest:
- You can’t shoot teammates. Hopefully this is a server-side option, as in CoD2.
- Instant spawn. You don’t have to wait before spawn. Again, I hope this is an option. Instant spawn is fun for some game types, but it’s crazy on others.
Man, this game can’t come soon enough.
First off a big question I had was which version to buy, retail or download. After doing my research I went with the retail, only due to one fact. The ability to install demo copies of Warhawk on other PS3′s, which is great for LAN party’s. The Bluetooth headset I could care less about because I already have one. But doesn’t hurt to have a extra.
So here are the benefits of each version:
Retail – $60, Nice box, physical disc, extra game trailers, Jabra BT125 headset (charge it via USB), install a demo copy on other local PS3′s, it will cache 789MB for better loading, actually loads about the same as the download version.
Download – $40, No need to leave your house, always on your hard drive, and it’s available now.
Both will eat about the same about of hard drive space. For those wanting to “share” the game with friends via game sharing. Sorry but you won’t be able to do that with Warhawk.
There’s a warning in the game’s description on the store that says it will only be playable through the PlayStation Network account that purchased the game, and only on one machine in any 24-hour period. [Source]
Warhawk Servers Live NOW – 8/26/07
For those of you worried that there won’t be enough Sony run servers do not be afraid. Incognito has just put HUNDREDS of official ranked servers for all to use. Every possible type of game has been created. [Source]
Before I played the Beta I honestly wasn’t planning on getting this game, but after playing it. It turned into a must buy! The Warhawks are a blast to fly and very easy, fighting on the ground is fun as well. And the stages are huge, and the draw distance is great. Overall a amazing game. I’ll see you guys online!
