Sony yesterday launched its PlayStation Home Beta service the PlayStation 3 (PS3) in the United States. The service allows PlayStation users to create avatars and interact with others in a virtual world. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Paramount Pictures are providing exclusive content for the service, including interviews and video spinoffs of films.
PlayStation 3 users can access latest Home service via a free download. However, those wanting to start a club or online community will have to pay an additional fee and some content will also require payment.
For those in the US who haven’t had the chance to check it out, here’s the official trailer from Sony.
And here’s a demo video of Home in action.
Though the new Need for Speed Undercover isn’t yet released, we can now confirm with you it will soon be hitting the store shelves on November 18, coming to every console you can imagine – Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, Wii, Nintendo DS and PC. Which brings me on to showing you another exciting, mouth watering new feature of this new release: customization mode!
Basically, its as simple as what you hear. This new feature lets players modify just about anything on their car then race it! Here’s a quick gallery…

I cannot believe someone would have the imagination to create a case mod for the PS3 to an extent that is as details as this. Created by Butterkneter of Bit-Tech, this incredible Far Cry 2 case mod includes an AK-47 magazine, bullet casings and giant bugs, as well as the idea for the battle of a damaged PS3 as pictured, enjoy the gallery!
Another one of Butterkneter’s famous and ever popular works was the Battlefield 2 case mod back in 2005, click here to check it out.
EA have unveiled the online modes in Need for Speed Undercover, including the all-new multiplayer mode, Cops and Robbers. This visceral team-based mode pits two teams of four players against each other in the ultimate battle-royale.
How will it be played? The aim is for robbers to pick up the package and take it to the drop-off point while the cops attempt to prevent the delivery. Each game consists of two rounds giving the players the chance to play as cops and robbers. Up to eight players will also be able to prove their driving prowess in sprint and circuit multiplayer race modes.
Need for Speed Undercover is being developed by Black Box in Vancouver, B.C., and is slated to be in stores in North America on November 18 and in Europe on November 21. The game will be available for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, and Wii as well as the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Nintendo DS, PSP (PlayStation Portable) handheld entertainment system, PC and mobile.
Here’s a sneak preview:
Check out this latest Playstation 3 3-month modification project by PS3Hax, though this ‘laptop’ is abit big (16 x 10.5 x 4 inches when closed), when opened up it features a 17-inch 720p HDTV, 320GB HDD, built-in speakers and a keyboard. Great for ‘portable’ gaming and also websurfing, checking your email, typing is not a problem here!
While most will probably agree that Microsoft and Sony, more specifically XBox and Playstation don’t mix. In the ‘controller mod’ you can see below, everything from a big fat XBox 360 controller has been crammed and fitted into that of the much slimmer PS3 controller, the only thing that’s not available is the audio jack, but I still think this is pretty amazing – good work!

Well it’s taken some time but the Lego Batman game will soon be out in a couple of months, I normally don’t talk about games but this one is Lego! Featured in the trailer after the break you will get to see the game in action, I believe it will be available for the Playstation 3 and XBOX 360 and PC I presume?
I just love watching pieces of Lego fly everywhere when you beat up someone on the street, but that’s not the best bit. In Lego Batman there will be a new twist with Villain Mode, which is a game mode that will let you cause the chaos for a change instead of having to protect the citizens all the time, a much more easier job!?
