The dropship rumor turned out to be true! The KT-424 Combat Dropship can carry 1 pilot, 7 soldiers and a ground vehicle at once, and it’s packing some firepower too. It has a MBEC-3 Heavy Support Cannon. Also all the maps are being modified to include the dropship. Man the KT-424 Combat Dropship sounds like fun! Plus there is a new map “Omega Factory”, which takes place at night and is the largest map yet! It will arrive this December on the PLAYSTATION®Network. I think I’ve added another gaming present to my list to give myself this holiday season
Operation: Omega Dawn pack features:
Set at night for added impact and tension, the Operation: Omega Dawn pack for Warhawk™ features an enhanced level of teamwork, tactics and coordinated aerial assaults with the new KT-424 Combat Dropship.

There’s a video of Devil May Cry 4 in action on the PS3 here. I hope we get this on the PSN at some point.
There’s also a load of images from the demo over at ruliweb.com
Seems as though Ubisoft are working on a patch to fix the freezing issues with Assassin’s Creed:
We can confirm that we are actively working on a game update. This update will help improve the stability of the game and will be released as soon as possible. In the meantime thank you for your ongoing feedback and patience.
It’s froze on me 5 times but it hasn’t done that since last Sunday.
Maybe they could do something about the screen tearing, pop up and repetitive side missions aswell…
I have only played the demo, but Uncharted looks like a great title. However, from the impressions that I’ve read it will take around ten hours to complete and the replay options sound limited. Others have said that they love replaying to get all the treasure items and bonus points, but realistically, I don’t see myself doing that. I’ve also heard that the play time is very action packed and has minimal repitition and “fluff”, but the simple fact is that I can rent this, finish it, and then return it if I choose.
Should I rent or buy?
From a selfish consumer perspective, it seems like best option is to rent: it may be a great title, but I can simply rent for a few weeks at the small cost of my montly game rental service, and I will get most the enjoyment and experience out of the title.
On the other hand, I’d like to support these types of titles and see more of this type of product in the future. Renting definitely doesn’t do that. Regardless of how much I enjoy the product, the developer and publisher of the game will see almost no money from a rental.
I’m leaning towards renting. Sure, that behavior won’t support this type of high quality product, and if everyone starts doing that, these types of products will disappear, but that isn’t my job. My job as a consumer is to make myself happy for the least amount of money. Also, I am buying plenty of other PS3 products.
What are you planning to do?
