Playstation Network


Playstation Network‘s adaptation of Brian Michael BendisPowers, the second go around at it, has some new cast photos making the Internet rounds. The first attempt didn’t make it past the Pilot stage for the FX Network, but the powers that be liked the concept material enough to give them another go at it, albeit with a different cast and moving it to the Playstation Network. Let’s take a look at the cast in costume. (more…)


PlayStation Network: The multimedia service offered on Sony‘s PlayStation game consoles is set to release its first original series, an adaptation of the comic book series Powers published by Image and written by Ultimate Spider-Man scribe Brian Michael Bendis, who will also executive produce the show.

Powers follows the adventures of a pair of “normal” cops fighting crime in a world where superheroes and villains are very real, and public knowledge. The series will star South African actor Sharlto Copley of District 9, and The Following‘s Susan Heyward, and it’s being produced by Charlie Huston. Director David Slade–known best for directing 30 Days of Night, and several episodes of NBC‘s Hannibal–will helm the first two episodes. More after the jump: (more…)

The nightmare of not playing Portal 2’s online co-op, or ripping other gamers body parts off in Mortal Kombat is over, because Playstation Network is slowly but surely coming back. The recent firmware update, 3.61, has been released. The update forces users to change their password. Upon changing the password, you’ll get an e-mail confirmation about it and from there, online multiplayer is back.

Sony recently released a video featuring President, Kaz Hirai talking about the restoration of PSN. He started off by apologizing.

The restoration process started in North America and will be making it’s way to other parts of the world, with word going around that some region in Europe has begun. As for when the Playstation Store or the “Welcome Back” Package will be released, is something we still have to wait for.

Has the last three weeks been terrible for any of you PS3 gamers? As a PS3 only gamer, it didn’t affect me that much as I have many single player games to go through. It also gave me a break from having some asshole accuse me of cheating when I whooped them. Although, I do feel bad for the folks who got their hands on Portal 2 or SOCOM and weren’t able to use the online capabilities because of the network being down.

Did this whole network outage affect your purchasing decision on Sony’s future console? Do you think Sony has to serve us Kevin Butler’s head to make it up for the outage? Tell us what you think Sony needs or don’t need to do by leaving a comment.
