Game developer Playdead announced today that its hit title LIMBO, the black and white puzzle-platforming adventure game released just about this time last year is now available via download over the PlayStation Network. Look to spend $14.99 to download the title, and if you are in North America, you can pay for and download it today. If you are in Europe or Asia, you will unfortunately have to wait until July 20th. However, you can point and laugh at your PC-playing piers, who won't be able to download it on Steam until August 2nd.
In celebration of the title's one-year anniversary, PlayStation Plus subscribers can download the title at a 20% discount for two weeks from today.
If you are curious about LIMBO, I recommend doing your research right HERE and reading Jason's review of the game, and check out the official website @ http://www.limbogame.org/.

Sony opened an official page for the new CECH-3000B model of the Playstation 3 console today, following the recent leak by a Japanese retailer who had been provided with specs from the gaming company. In an article posted on Andriasang earlier today, some of these details were revealed.
The new model sports not only a 320 Gb HD, but draws 200 watts vs the prior versions more power hungry 230 watt design. Additionally, the designers cut about .4 Kg from the design (thats approximately 14 oz) from the weight, trimming the prior 3.0 Kg (6.6 lbs) to 2.6 Kg (5.7 lbs). While most people don't carry their PS3's around with them, it does add up to energy savings in the production process, and less consumption of materials.
It might be seen as an cost saving measure to some, given the steep rise in the cost of raw materials, which some attribute to China's attempt to hold a virtual monopoly on the supply of these minerals which are used in all sorts of electronics. However, this would seem a cost cutting measure at the production level only. Converted at today's market price, the cost will be roughly $400 plus tax. This official page is still only up in Japan, or at least that I could find. There is no official launch date published at this time. If you already own a PS3, the energy savings is probably not reason enough to run out and replace your current model.
Here is the demo of Resistance 3 that was given at the Sony E3 2011 Press Conference earlier today. Resistance 3 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive.
During the PlayStation Conference, Jack Tretton announced a very surprising bit of hardware that I am pretty sure no one could have guessed at. A PlayStation-branded 3D monitor and affordable 3D glasses.
This PlayStation-branded 3D monitor will also have the ability to display two separate images to allow two players to utilize one monitor as if it were two. Good bye split screen! Glasses are required for this to work though.
During the conference, Sony made every effort to show off 3D gaming and how the only place to do that is the PlayStation 3 and to further drive that point home Sony announced a bundle for $499 that will include the 24-inch PlayStation-branded 3D monitor, 6-foot HDMI cable, Active 3D glasse, and a copy of Resistance 3. Tretton also revealed that the Active 3D glasses will work with a variety of other 3D displays that use active 3D glasses. These glasses will be available separately for $69.99. Keep your eyes peeled this September for availability.
