Battlefield 3 pre-order exclusives not really exclusive

Getting excited about the pre-order exclusives for Battlefield 3 that you can receive for pre-ordering from selected retailers? Unfortunately there has been a change of plan. Dice has announced they will not make the exclusives solely available to pre-order customers. The original offer was to allow pre-order customers who bought from selected retailers, special weapons and abilities the game does not include when you buy Battlefield 3 on September 6 when it is released. Apparently many customers complained that it favored customers who have more disposable money then those those whom were on a budget and had to wait until the release date. The controversy forced Dice to agree to not make the pre-order exclusives, "exclusive." That means that all of the pre-order weapons and abilities will be available for download after a short period of time for all users to download. Dice decided everyone should be able to enjoy equal game play regardless when you are able to purchase the game.
If you really want to get a freebie for buying early, Dice has something for it's Amazon.com customers. They are offering a free BF 3 tee for all early birds.  Check out this link for details http://enterbf3.com/battlefield-3-preorder.php

Anonymous ties to Sony's network shut down do not add up

In April, hackers broke into Sony's online network, gaining access to the personal information and passwords of some 77 million PSN and Qriosity accounts. The attacks were believed to have been performed by Anonymous, a group of hackers who's aim is to punish global companies involved with supporting censorship on the internet.
For these hackers, it appears they might not have been as anonymous as they thought.  According to the New York Times, Spanish police Friday June 10th confirmed that they apprehended three men in connection with the Sony security breach. The police believe they were involved not only with the attacks on Sony, but with other strikes against government websites the world over, and characterized the trio as the local heads of Anonymous.
The three men--all in their early 30s--were apprehended in Almeria, Barcelona, and Valencia, and released pending formal charges. According to the paper, the expected charges will be forming an illegal association to attack public and corporate websites, with each facing a prison sentence of up to three years.
What is not clear from the report from Spanish authorities is whether or not they are the actual perpetrators involved in the Sony case. This could be a misguided attempt to blame known anonymous leaders residing in Spain.
The reason that arresting anyone in connection to the Sony hack may prove difficult is that Anonymous is a large organization of hackers world wide according to the the New York Times. They are an internet activist group largely in opposition of the arrest of Julian Assange head of Wiki Leaks.  Anonymous seeks to punish corporations or governments that aim to silence communication on the internet.
Anonymous has claimed responsibility for the Dec. 8 attack on MasterCard, which had stopped processing donations for WikiLeaks. Other targets included PayPal, which stopped accepting donations for Mr. Assange’s group. Visa.com was also affected by the attacks, as were the Web sites of the Swedish prosecutor’s office and the lawyer representing the two women who accused Mr. Assange of sexual misconduct. The group said the actions were part of an effort called Operation Payback, which began as a way of punishing companies that attempted to stop Internet file-sharing and movie downloads.
There seems to be no connection why hackers would want to infiltrate video game networks when they have made their protest against censorship public.

Bethesda Soft works releases trailer for Prey 2 at E3

Insomniac launches new games and pre-order extras at E3

Insomniac announced their launch plans for 3 of their latest games, Resistance 3, Ricochet & Ratchet, and their brand new title Overstrike during their opening presentation at E3. Overstrike revolves around an elite team of outcasts. Overstrike 9 is comprised of a reformed mercenary, a mischievous lifelong thief, a gifted but rebellious young scientist, and a temperamental decorated detective. Using an arsenal full of fringe-tech gadgets, this team of elite agents are ready to save the world in an epic adventure that spans the globe. Overstrike is a four-player co-op action experience, and is the first multiplatform release for Insomniac. What I like about this title is that it offers a choice of 2 female players and has the same feel as Gears of War. Check out the trailer for a better idea of the game play.
As for Resistance 3 fans, the pre-order has started and Insomniac has a few good reasons why pre-ordering your game may be worth while. Here is what’s on the table for pre-order early birds:
