In a move that would make the PS3 even more like a PC, Sony is apparently working on a service that would allow gamers to "pre-order" digital download titles that would be downloaded to the system's hard drive before launch date. Even though said games might not necessarily be playable before the release, it would prevent players from the hassle of waiting for the download when the game came out.
A brand new gaming space has just opened up in PlayStation home, and it brings with it the opportunity to win your share of $25,000 in prizes, most of which are, of course, Sony electronic devices.

There are comic books nerds throughout the entire world who find one man more dynamic than Spider-Man, more larger-than-life than Superman, and even more incredible than Hulk, and he also has a characteristic that no comic book superhero has - he's real.

Even though Call of Duty publisher Activision is in bed with Microsoft and gives the Xbox 360 all kinds of early and exclusive content, Sony has decided to show that it still loves the company, and the call of Duty franchise, and will be offering a special edition version of the PS3 designed specifically to target fans of the quintessential first-person shooter franchise.
When the downloadable video game Flower was released for the PS3, everyone knew it was different. Some people even refused to call it a "game" - it was more of an interactive art experience. Whatever you want to call it, it was truly unique. Game maker Thatgamecompany has gone on to work on other incredibly unique projects, but Flower remains its most renowned. But even though it gained such attention for being new and different, I'd be willing to bet not many people could have expected it would reach this kind of venue.
For Nintendo, this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo will be all about new hardware - the Wii U was introduced last year but no one has really seen what its true potential - what it will actually bring to market on day one - is. So that's Nintendo; but what about Microsoft and Sony? They have a much bigger challenge if they want to prove their sexiness this year. There won't be a PS4, so what will Sony show?
The latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 online maps will be available for PS3 owners to download on Thursday. The downloadable content (DLC) has already been available for the Xbox 360 as part of the long-running deal in which Microsoft pays Activision for exclusive first access to all Call of Duty DLC. It should be noted that only Call of Duty Elite members on the PS3 have access to the new content.
When it comes to fighting games that aren't Street Fighter or Tekken, they're pretty much a dime a dozen.

It could be the art style, the control system, the intensity of violence...or it could be something completely different. Case in point - Skullgirls.
Assumedly after successfully selling a red version of the PS3 in the UK earlier this year, Sony has decided to further expand the availability of the bold-looking version of its console. Unfortunately for those in the United States, that expansion is still not making its way to the 50 states. Instead, Sony thought it be a good idea to peddle the special edition PS3 in the land down under. It's going to Australia.
