PlayStation Network down, may not come back for a day or two

PlayStation Network down, may not come back for a day or two The PlayStation Network may be down for a day or two, the MTV Multiplayer blog has a report detailing some of what's going on.

The PlayStation Network has seen its fair share of problems since it launched, but its latest woes may be the worst yet. Starting this morning, users started running to forums and blogs to complain that they were having difficulty connecting to PSN, receiving an error code "80710A06." The reason for the outage is presently unknown and apparently more serious than Sony was expecting. On the official PlayStation Blog, Patrick Seybold, the Sr. Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media for SCEA, laid out the present situation in a brief statement:

"While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we’re able to get the service completely back up and running. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we’ll update you again as soon as we can."

This isn't something that's going to be fixed in the next hour... this is serious, and based on that statement, it seems Sony is having difficulty tracking down the root cause. There are theories that hackers, protesting the recent legal battle between Sony and a PS3 hacker, are the ones behind the attacks, but none of that can be confirmed at this time.

Seth Killian breaks down Street Fighter X Tekken for EuroGamer

Seth Killian breaks down Street Fighter X Tekken for EuroGamer A new interview with Capcom's Seth Killian was posted by EuroGamer. This mostly focuses on the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken, talking about how the gameplay will work and what players should expect from the title.

Seth also delves into the fighting game community and how it has evolved. All in all, an interesting piece, definitely worth your time. Here's a snip.

Eurogamer: How does the visual style differ from Street Fighter IV's?

Seth Killian: The touchstone the team is working from is this liquid feel, although I don't feel that's quite brought to bear in the game yet. It's getting there. You remember in Street Fighter IV they had this ink thing, which only emerged towards the tail end of the game. It wasn't very inky at the beginning. They're looking at different liquid touches as well as what you've seen, to match the gameplay with what you've seen in the trailers.

To me it seems brighter and dirtier. Like, a little grungier, almost. That's an artifact of the backgrounds that are finished. The destroyed landscape, with the Cyberbots mechs running around, definitely lends itself to a grungy feel because it's destroyed buildings and rubble.

And then the Dino Crisis touchstone, with the dinosaurs and fences. That also has a slightly destroyed look to it. It's not pristine.

As a side bit to the interview, EuroGamer also put up another article where Seth mentions avoiding mistakes Capcom and other fighting game publishers have made in the past. Here's a grab from that one.

"Even for Arcade Edition, as we've seen the iterations of Street Fighter IV, we haven't added mechanics. That's been a conscious decision. We're adding characters, environments, bonus stages and online features. Things that are not a burden to the player.

"So, you can come in and play Arcade Edition for the first time, and you'll have more characters to learn, but learning characters is fun and exciting, whereas learning mechanics can be fun and exciting, but that's where the real work sometimes comes in. But it's not necessarily the fun work.

Using Level 3 hypers against assists in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

A rundown of how the various Level 3 hypers in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 work against assists was put together by CoolBoyCorporate.

More footage of Daigo beasting with Yun in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

Check out the double palm combo, frame traps, etc.

TAC damage boosts & throwing after K.O./snapback in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

ChunLi noticed a few more instructional videos for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 created by Cauldrath. The first one shows the damage boosts that you get by performing a Team Aerial Combo, although these can be damage scaled considerably, there is a way around this, netting players a lot of damage bonuses in the process.

Next up is a trick Cauldrath refers to as the The Return of the Guard Break. Normally, you cannot throw the other player when they're coming in after someone is K.O.'d or has been snapbacked, but if you hit them first, it clears the state, creating an opportunity to throw them. Check out the video below.
