PSN finally getting back online

PSN has finally returned online in North America and will soon be online everywhere else in the world.
It will slowly gain back all it's functions by the end of May, 2011. As most of you already know, PSN was attacked by a group of hackers called the Anonymous.
PSN should now be safer and harder to hack.

Also, every PSN account has to change their password, but that can only be done from the PS3 that the account was registered on. Though password change can also be done through e-mail validation.

Half Life will continue!

Doug Lombardi aka Valve's marketing boss was asked "Will we ever see [more Half-Life]?" by a reported of AusGamers.
Lombardi replied: "You will ever see it, yes. We are not done with Gordon Freeman's adventures. I have nothing other than that to tell you today, but hang in there with us."

I guess we will just have to wait for the great game to come...

Sony VS GeoHot

So for anyone that doesn't know. GeoHot recently hacked the PS3's firmware and was able to used pirated copies of games on PS3 and get lots of hacks working on games like Modern Warfare 2 etc.

At first, GeoHot was pretty sure that he would win the case and he even made a rap song about it...
But now he might not be that sure anymore as he has fled to South America after the court requested for his hard drives. He did give the hard drives but he removed some parts of them so they wouldn't work. Now when they asked for them, his lawyer simply said that he is out of country.
Also, George Hotz claimed that he didn't make any money out of the jailbreaking but then they checked his PayPal and guess what; he had received money for it.
That topped with the hard drive case almost ends the case and as he is in South America and may not even return; Sony gets a easy win.

Anyways, in my opinion he had it coming...

Battlefield 3 dumbed down for consoles

DICE (the developer of Battlefield games) has stated that Battlefield 3 is made for PC and will be scaled/ported to consoles from PC.
This sounds good to me as I'm more of a PC gamer than a console gamer. Though, I still have to decide if I'll get the PS3 or PC version.
I hope the minimum requirements won't be too high so I can actually play it.

Homefront is being released as soon as March 15th, so I thought I should write something about it. The game will be released on XBOX360, PS3 and PC. Homefront challenges the modern shooters like Battlefield, Medal of Honor and Call of Duty and wishes to become the best "large-scale shooter".

In the singleplayer, you play as an American resistance fighter, trying to defend USA from the United Korea, using guerrilla tactics, commandeering military vehicles and utilizing advanced drone technology.

In the multiplayer, you play on dedicated servers that support 32 players. You can play either on the USA or United Korea. Each new copy of Homefront includes an online pass, enabling users the full multiplayer experience. It isn't required to play the multiplayer game but without it, the level cap would be 5 (75 with online pass).

Metacritic has awarded the game with a score of 88/100, which is just above Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Also Gamerankings awarded the game with an overall 89.33%, which tops both Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Basicly, if you are fed up with the current shooters, you should try this game out. It brings some new stuff to the table and has received some good ratings.
