Tokyo Game Show - Sony side

TGS is on and here are some interesting things from the sony side of the floor:

- new firmware 2.5 coming next week. rumors that the home public beta will be started are around. whether or not that happens remains to be seen. as someone that's in the beta already, i am unaffected. i can say that the beta was updated with the addition of the first "themed" room, the uncharted room. it's cool.

and that's all i'm saying. you could be finding out about it soon enough.

- PSP plus feature connects your PSP to your PS3 to give it dualshock 3 POWER. however, the only game that the feature will allow players to use the DS3 controller is the new PSP shooter, Resistance Retribution.

this should be a backwards compatible tech that would make playing some older PSP classics alot easier. like GTA:LCS, silent hill origins, burnout......well, almost all action/shooting/driving games on the PSP. let's hope.

- new LittleBigPlanet costumes are awesome! looks like along with god of war and heavenly sword goodness, we'll get to buy old snake from MGS4 and
Sephiroth from final fantasy 7. hell, i just got into the LBP beta and i'd spend 3 bucks on an old snake sackboy. one would wonder who else is coming down the line.

- tekken 6 will NOT come to the PS3. but, tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion, an updated version of the arcade game. new items, new playable characters and whatnot. it's different then the 360 version, i guess. it'll be out fall next year.

off topic: there's word of a sega vs. capcom fighting game coming soon. it's not marvel vs. capcom 3, but hey, it's getting closer. mega man vs. sonic? alex kidd vs. strider? i'm there.

more on the way later today.
