PSN down for unknown reasons, Sony investigating

PSN down for unknown reasons, Sony investigating

If you tried to fire up your PS3 and go onto the PSN last night and today, you have undoubtedly noticed that the network is down. This is an irritation to all PS3 users even if you don’t play games that require the network since many of them will constantly ask you if you want to connect to the network. I know Gran Turismo 5 nearly drove me crazy asking last night when I realized the network was down. The interesting part about this outage is that Sony apparently has no idea what caused it.

EA Announces Bulletstorm Demo Landing on Xbox LIVE and PSN January 25th

Bulletstorm is one of those rare titles that, even if you see all the videos and read all the reviews on it, you still need to actually play it to get a sense of what the game is about, and why it's so unique in its place amongst all of the other First Person Shooter (FPS) titles out there. From developer People Can Fly and published by EA Games, Bulletstorm is a shooter that mixes in over-the-top action, along with plenty of creative combinations that players can use to score points.

We could say that Angry Birds is popular, but that would be an understatement. The game, which has made its way from iOS to webOS and Android, is a mobile title that lets you sling-shot birds from a set location, and take down structures where pigs reside, all in hopes of collecting points while you take out the pigs. The game's popularity has been insane, and it looks like Rovio, the developer behind the game, is getting ready to expand the horizons of some angry birds.

Hulu Plus on PS3 Could Mean Mandatory Subscription to PSN+

Yesterday, Hulu made waves with the announcement of the much-rumored Hulu Plus. A brand new subscription-based methodology to stream your favorite TV shows, whenever you want. For just $9.99 per month, you'll get your hands on the "Season Ticket," which will let you watch any episode of a particular season, with no expiration date (which is the general rule of thumb on Hulu right now). And, with that announcement, came the revelation that Sony's PlayStation 3 would be getting support as well in the near future. But, there could be some very important fine print not quite revealed.

The Daily Slash: June 24th 2010

We're at the tail-end of the week, and we're not going to lie: we can feel it. All the way to our bones. If you're getting paid this Friday, hopefully you've already decided on something to buy yourself -- gotta spend that earned money, right? Or, maybe you've already waited in line for the thing you wanted to get yourself? That's probably the case. But, moving away from the Apple-phone for a short time, let's take a look at The Best of R3 Media. First up, we've got a software update for the EVO 4G coming soon, an updated keyboard that we want, and some wireless syncing for BlackBerrys. And then, in the Dredge 'Net, Hulu's still being passed around, RIM does pretty well for itself, and head to a Microsoft Store to play some Kinect.
