Seems a recent rumor reguarding the streaming movie service from Netflix coming to the PS3 has been confirmed. A statement from SCEA president and CEO Jack Tretton puts all the speculation to rest.
“The PS3 has always been about more than just gaming, and it will soon be the only platform in the industry to offer consumers such a variety of convenient options for enjoying movies and TV shows.”
“Whether you want to watch content on Blu-ray disc and DVD, download it from the PlayStation Network’s video delivery service, or stream videos instantly from Netflix, the PS3 system is the only solution that offers it all.”
Although an exact date for the service going live on the PS3 was not confirmed, it was noted that the service will be available sometime in Novemember and will cost $8.99 a month. You can however be notified when it does go live by signing up right here.

I just noticed ..::LvL posted 5 new Quake 3 map reviews the other day. Included in the update is a small 1v1 map, a Doom 2 map remake, two CTF maps and a “box map” named Rockets Please! The top reviewed map though is JUL32 by seasoned Quake 3 map author Julek. JUL32 is a “fast and furious” tournament map with “nowhere to hide”.
For those who have not been to ..::LvL for awhile (myself included) will like some new features that have been added to map reviews, such as panorama screenshots and 30 second video’s showing off each map. These are very useful tools for helping you decide if you should bother downloading and installing a reviewed map.
Head on over to ..::LvL for the map review and download goodness.

My massive avatar collection expanded today, with an upload of approximately 2,500 new avatars. Nearly all of the 3,300 + avatars relate to gaming, games, sci-fi, fantasy, or anime. There are quite a few new game related avatars, including World of Warcraft, Killzone 2, Conan, Lord of the Rings, and many, many more. I’m not quite sure what my obsession with downloading and collecting massive amounts of avatars means, but hopefully someone finds them useful.
I do plan to eventually package all of these avatars in to one download, I want to have them sorted and renamed appropriately before that happens though. Meanwhile, here are a few examples of the newly added avatars, and of course you can always browse the entire avatar collection in my gallery.
