Playstation 3 Firmware 4.46 Released July 1, 2013

The latest required update for the Playstation 3 has been released.  Following in the footsteps of a failed firmware update which had to be pulled quickly after release, Firmware 4.46 did not brick my PS3.  Instead it adds the ability to disable trophy notifications.  Some game developers (like Quantic Dream’s David Cage) have felt trophy notifications (or achievement unlocked notifications for Xbox 360 players) distract players from the gaming experience.  Oh don’t worry, you’ll still acquire trophies during gameplay, you just won’t be notified about them the second you acquire them.  Once downloaded, you can enable the feature manually from the PS3’s options menu.

You can download Firmware 4.46 using the PS3’s update feature.  It is required to access to the Playstation Network.

Eight of some of the greatest games ever made in the past 25 years are getting updated for a current gen console and bundled together.  Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection will not only include the updated HD versions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, but the updated trophy edition of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, the two digital graphic novels, updated versions of the original Metal Gear 1 and 2 games for the MSX, and download codes for the original PS1 games Metal Gear Solid and its expansion Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions.

Oh and did I mention it’s also coming with a massive art book as well?

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection is coming July 9th, 2013 exclusive to the Playstation 3.

BEYOND: Two Souls E3 2013 Presentation July 1, 2013

Quantic Dream had a 40 minute presentation at the Sony E3 booth this year where they not only showed the complete demo of their real-time PS4 demo The Dark Sorcerer, but a never before seen level from their upcoming PS3 exclusive game BEYOND: Two Souls.

This new level for E3 2013 shows a very different level than what I saw at the Tribeca Film Festival.  Jodie and her spirit companion Aiden are now in the army.  As the scene opens, she has been given a mission to assassinate a warlord who has been violently oppressing a country.  Armed with a ghost on your side, as David Cage put it, this is no Call of Duty.

BEYOND: Two Souls is coming October, 2013 exclusive to the Playstation 3.
