PopCap Games just officially announced that Plants Vs Zombies will be coming to the PSN “soon.” No specific date has been announced as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
Plants Vs Zombies is a Tower Defense type game that is extremely addicting and fun. I played through the entire game on the PC, and enjoyed every minute of it. This has been available for some time on the PC, Ipod/pad, DS, and Xbox Live. Finally they are showing us some love for the PSN. A trailer for the PC version is below.

With the reveal the other night, a demo was shown of the Uncharted game being developed for the handheld. Though we got to mainly see a few low-res videos and a few camera shots, we didn’t get to see a very detailed representation of the game in action.
Luckily, Gamespot has the production video reveal available in 720P with the English translation dubbed into it. The demo seems to use most of the system’s control features quite well. I know what I gotta start saving up money for next…
You can also see a screenshot of the game here. It’s amazing how much detail there is for being a handheld.
This does not delete game saves. Another question I get is how long does it take. Only about 2 – 5 minutes. For more FAQ’s check the bottom of this post. This is a good thing to do from time to time to keep your PS3 running smoothly and happy. I did this for the first time in over 4 years, so long over due. Earlier this week I was trying to watch some videos off the internal hard drive and it was lagging and sound came in and out for some reason.
So I thought I’d try to rebuild the ps3 database to see if it would fix it. It was perfect after that. So if you have other slow down, a weird glitch or maybe your trophies take a while to sync this would be wise to do. Check out the FAQ section at the bottom if you have any questions.
There are rumors flying about that firmware version 3.56 was not “minor” at all as it was described by Sony. There seems to be a neat little addition or two that was added to help Sony fight against homebrew that allows piracy.
First thing is that Sony has enabled a rootkit, that once a PS3 connects to the PSN network, it can then verify the files required and/or bypassed from the newest firmware versions etc. There is no perfect way to forge this and even if code is written to bypass this option, Sony can still see PS3′s that connected to PSN without accomplishing this step giving them the heads up anyways. What this basically means is that if you have custom firmware then you will not have PSN access very soon.
Secondly, it seems that Sony has installed a trojan horse of sorts in your PS3 that allows them to control it remotely to force download proper firmware as needed. This one is a bit shaky and I’m not 100% sure of what laws govern this procedure if any. Basically Sony can see you are bypassing their firmware, they can take your PS3 and force it to download the newest firmware options. A bit of a touchy subject here, but brutal nonetheless.
So it seems if you want PSN access, stay away from customfirmware. This will at the very least fix the online cheaters, trophy cheaters and such which is a good thing.
No patch is needed to enforce this either. Its all done on Sony’s end.
