Remember everyone's favourite game of yesteryear Grand Theft Auto IV? Well, if you're Japanese, have a PS3 and are yet to play this game - dude, it just got a bit cheaper
Now a part of Sony's budget line, GTAIV will cost just ¬•3,990 (US$41).
Here's a quick look at the new inFamous space for Playstation Home which includes a host of new activities including a Reaper zapping minigame
The space also allows you to design your own graffiti, which can be voted on by other Home users. The space will be available from tomorrow, July 2nd.
A Playstation Home survey has been sent out to Playstation owners in order to help gauge the future of the platform
The survey hints at music sharing, video sharing and trophy support among many others. Recipients are asked to rate the concepts based on how likely they are to get them to return to the Home service. One section asks users to indicate...
A rumour spawning from the mixedmartialarts
com</a> forums suggests that any fighters looking to join EA's upcoming MMA release will be blacklisted by the UFC. So essentially, any fighter that signs up to MMA will never be endorsed by the UFC. Considering the sales of UFC 2009 Undisputed it kind of makes sense. But it all just seems a bit sinister. We'll keep you posted on any developments..
Yeck Entertainment are working on an MMO for Sony Computer Entertainment Taiwan according to Siliconera
The team have worked on the likes of Legend Of Glory in the past. Given the size of the Taiwanese market, it's being speculated that the release will likely be brought to the mainstream rather than just target one small market. Sadly details are...
We all love Capcom games right? Good, now that we've sorted that out, we're sure you'll be pleased to know that Capcom are making good on all those promises they made earlier in the year - lots of PSone titles are indeed scheduled to hit the PSN
The entire (PS1) Resident Evil franchise will be heading to the PSN, as will Dino Crisis. The PSP will...
We've been really interested in DJ Hero
The music sounds good, the gameplay looks good and the controller seems like it'll be a lot of fun. But with a recommended retail price of ¬£108 Activision must be having a good ol' laugh at the British consumer. The US version is priced at $120 which is bad enough, but the UK version would equal an enormous $177. You have to see the irony in Bobby Kotick's..
In an interview with Famitsu Weekly, video game God Hideo Kojima has further reiterated his role on the upcoming Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
"This has become a big project, one with the idea that we needed to make a Castlevania which had that same kind of feverish Western support, and that's why Kojima Productions came in to help," Kojima told the Japanese publication.</blockquote>..
The European Playstation Blog have confirmed that Topatoi will be heading to the European Playstation Store this week
The game is being developed in the Ukraine by Boolat Games. It's a platforming game involving lots of spinning and apparently the release this week will mark "the first part of the saga". The game will include split screen...
We thought Damnation was pretty terrible to be honest
It had a saving grace in its level design and platforming. Sadly, pretty much every other element of the game fell short. As a shorter PSN release Damnation could have worked, but as a retail experience, sadly not. And sales conclude the game wasn't the biggest success story. As such, Kotaku have confirmed today that the entire Blue Omega team..
Probably the best thing about the Uncharted franchise are the characters and plot development
In many ways it's far better than most movies in that department which is a pretty strong credit when you consider the medium. So it's pleasing to hear Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will feature over 90 minutes of cinematics to drive the plot:¬ďThe single player campaign is definitely going to be longer than..
Did you enjoy the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves beta demo thing? Yeah, it was pretty awesome wasn't it
We loved it. Well hey, guess what, Naughty Dog are going to hold another multiplayer demo closer to the game's release later this year. Apparently the second multiplayer demo will be "available to an even wider group this time" so hopefully...
Everytime one of these new MAG developer diaries are released, we learn something new about Zipper Interactives ambitious shooter
This latest video regarding factions gives the impression that MAG is going to have a much more team-based "supporter" like spirit to it than other games. You choose a side depending on your personality and from there on in you're a team. It could be an..
Previously an XBOX 360 exclusive, Ninja Gaiden Sigma II is getting some notable upgrades for its now PS3 exclusive outing
Online co-op, new characters and a range of fixes that kinda made the XBOX 360 version so good all head the bill of improvements. The game will be released October 1 in Japan and priced at ¬•7,800 (US$81). Those who pre-order the game will get a "starter guide book"..
We really enjoyed Red Faction Guerrilla so we're kinda pleased to hear that the DLC will cover new ground
Demons Of The Badlands will release on August 13th for $9.99 and will take players on a new single-player quest probably involving explosions. Two more expansion packs are planned but there have been no announcements on them as of yet.
One worried PushSquare reader just sent us an email claiming Sony had "shut down" the Playstation Network, claiming that neither he nor his friends could log on
Sony want you to know, "hey don't worry - we're doing a spot of maintenance". Those of you in Europe, like us, should be back up and running by now (we are) with Sony claiming:The...
John Koller won't like this. A strong rumour coming out of Joystiq towers seems to be hinting that two Taiwanese firms have been awarded contracts to manufacture - dum-dum-dum - the PS3 Slim. According to UDN.com the contracts have gone to Foxconn and Pegatron ‚ÄĒ guess what else they manufactured - yup, the original PS3. The device is sai
SEGA have been auditioning nice young ladies to feature in an upcoming sequel to the Yakuza franchise
Between May 8 and June 19, there were over 1,500 applicants. Groups of 2-3 were interviewed by the game's creators. They were asked to read lines and questioned things such as whether they liked karaoke. Apparently all this is an essential part of making a good game. Personally, we just wish..
Video games analyst Michael Pachter has been using his crystal ball again
Speaking with Industry Gamers, Pachter believes that Sony will capture "significant market share" through the victory of blu-ray. He also believes Microsoft's position in Japan will eventually cause the XBOX 360 to finish in third-place behind the Playstation 3 this generation, despite selling double the amount of..
Sony Computer Entertainment announced today plans to expand the "Official Licensing Program" for Playstation peripherals for the PS3, PS2 and PSP
"By entering into a license agreement with SCE through this program, peripheral and accessory manufacturers will gain access to technical documentations necessary for designing and creating variety of licensed products for PlayStation..
With two pretty big Playstation 3 exclusives in the works, Japanese developers Tecmo have become a pretty Sony oriented development house
A strange turn of events seeing as in the past the team we very much taken with Microsoft's XBOX. The reason for that? "The PS3 the hardware with the highest specs," reckons Quantum director Makoto Shibata."It's not that Tecmo is shifting away..
We almost shed tears of disappointment when we heard Serious Sam HD wasn't going to be coming to the Playstation 3
We have fond, fond memories of the Serious Sam game and always believed it would get a remake. Hearing it was indeed making a return raised our hopes exponentially, until we noted the glaring absence of a Playstation 3 version being in...
This is a pretty big deal Playstation 3 owners
In fact it's probably news many of us have been waiting to hear for a long while. According to Siliconera, Sony filed a patent last December for software-based emulation of the Playstation 2's emotion engine. Essentially the patent would allow Playstation 2 games to be playable on any Playstation 3. It's by no means a confirmation of complete..
Trine has been getting glowing appraisals from all those who gave the recently released PC demo a try
However, people have questioned the game's price, at $40 for the full PC release. We haven't been sure how a $40 PSN download would be received. Thankfully clarification from Joystiq suggests that the PSN version of Trine will retail at just $20,...
Trophies are getting to where they need to be, but we can't help but feel it's taking a bit too long
Sony must be aware that users are crying out for more detailed, instantly accessible stats and avatar/forum signature type images. While Sony Europe did provide the portable trophy cards, they're really a nightmare to keep updated. Alas, signs that...
Look how cute LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy looks when dressed as the Statue Of Liberty
Awww. Don't you just want to squeeze him and tickle his tummy? No. Oh ok. Still, at the grand total price of ¬£0.00 you'll be able to download this Statue Of Liberty costume for your own little Sackman. The costume will be available from July 2nd. Get it while it's...
Speaking with Spong, Quantic Dream's co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere has admitted that his company haven't quite figured out a way to implement trophies into their innovative release Heavy Rain
"We haven¬ít figured out, as of yet, how the trophy system is going to work. It¬ís not necessarily a game that is conceptually in line with what trophies should do", Guillaume told SPOnG at the..
Those of you who have read the Harry Potter books will know that the franchise takes a turn for the dark-side in the penultimate novel, Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince, as Master Potter and Dumbledore make preparations to thwart the fast approaching threat of Voldemort
It's a trait which has clearly been taken seriously by EA's video game adaptation of the movie as the trailer looks..
Reading a comment like this really warms our heart
We prefer it when companies say nothing about each other, but if they're going to talk, at the very least be respectful. And that's exactly what Aaron Greenberg has been in an interview with Major Nelson. Despite claiming the Microsoft show historic, he also mentions his thoughts on Sony's press...
Pictured is the diamond encrusted P12, a reward for all those Paradise City residents who've spent their time completing all 500 online freeburn challenges, including everything from the original game, the new timed and freeburn challenges in the Cagney update, Bikes Pack and Big Surf Island
So only about 200 hours gameplay then. Alas, do it all and this car shall be your reward. For free. We're..
"Unfortunately, this video is not available on your platform
We apologize for any inconvenience." It's a glitch you may or may not have seen on your Playstation 3 this weekend when trying to access Hulu via the Playstation 3's web browser. At this moment in time the reason for the block is unknown. All that we know is that it's certainly a deliberate block. We're guessing this won't be the..
Shattering reports from almost two months ago, a Tweet from the Capcom Twitter page has dashed hopes of a June Marvel vs
Capcom 2</a> release, instead pushing the game right the way back to "the end of July". So alas, no Marvel vs. Capcom 2 tomorrow guys. You're going to have to wait that bit longer.
Apparently Sony are having a hard time getting Playstation Motion Controller development kits into the hands of the developer
An interview with THQ's Brian Farrell reveals that while the company have Natal development kits, they don't yet have Playstation Motion Controller kits. Sony apparently did say to developers, via a recent dev community bulletin, that "hardware prototypes and support..
SCEA's Katy Field has revealed that inFamous' demo became the first to ever reach 1,000,000 downloads
Hopefully everyone that downloaded the demo ended up buying the game. Still, a successful number for the Sucker Punch team that, at the very least, showcases a lot of interest in the game. In fact, evidently such was the interest that a Playstation...
People are still asking for that price cut
And we keep telling 'em, the PS3 is perfectly well priced considering what you get. We understand it's expensive, but truly we believe it's worth saving for. Especially when you pretty much get everything you need in the box, without any hidden costs. Sony just want to remind everyone that the PS3 will be on the market for 10 years and are in no rush for a..
One of the biggest problems Sony has had in the past few years is that they're a victim of their own success
You may not relate to it instantly, but Sony are an absolutely gigantic company. They're a record label, a movie licensing and production house, an electronics producer, a video game publisher, a hardware manufacturer, a mobile phone company...
You know what, we're not sure how we feel about this
The Uncharted games pride themselves on feeling like movies as it is, why bring it to big screen when a lot of it already feels like cinema? Especially when Uncharted is essentially Indiana Jones. It just doesn't make sense to us. Alas, Columbia Pictures are gearing up a movie adaptation of Naughty Dog's massive Uncharted franchise.¬† The film is..
Playstation boss Kaz Hirai got himself a sub-boss today, as Kunimasa Suzuki presumably moved his stuff into the Playstation super-office
Suzuki has been with Sony since 1984 and will "assist in managing the day-to-day operations of the PlayStation business". He starts his new position on July 1st. Thanks to Kotaku for the picture.
Playstation Home has gained 7 million users to date
To be honest we think that's a rather decent number. Joystiq disagree. They report that with over 21 million PS3s in the wilderness, adoption rate for home is probably less than 33%. It's certainly a valid point but not necessarily one that we think matters. Seeing as Home is making a rather decent...
Let's be honest, pool games are exceptionally fun if they are bought at the right price
Sometimes developers try to build a full package out of a pool games and it doesn't quite seem worth it; but with the explosion of the PSN we've always been in hope of a really great pool game. We thought Inferno Pool had filled that hole, but given our...
Yes, finally someone gets what we've been saying
Not everyone likes the music that's on Guitar Hero. In fact, we see an artist list full of the likes of ZZ Top and we actually want to murder ourselves. Thank goodness for Activision's CEO Mike Griffith who, contrary to popular belief, realises DJ Hero is a big deal. "It's certainly hitting a more mainstream and expanded audience from Guitar..
We sat waiting patiently for the first of the PS3 Fallout 3 DLC today
It never came. We got quite upset about it and trundled away from our PS3 back to the tennis. Alas, Bethesda predicted people must have been waiting and have quelled some fears, claiming Operation Anchorage is nearly ready for PS3 release. Unfortunately a date was not given.
Hands up if you haven't played Super Stardust HD
Ok, we see maybe one hand out of a room full of people. Well what's your excuse then? It's too expensive?! Well, hm, ok, you really should have bought it earlier but hey, you know what, we'll let you off because today the game is celebrating its second birthday and as such will set you back just...
In an age where multiplayer seems to be tacked into every single game, we're really getting interested in those games that try to make their multiplayer components a little different and a little more suiting to the source material
Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood appears to have everything you'd expect, but it also plays into its fiction. The...
Brighton UK is a lovely place in July
There's Iced Tea and deck chairs and sunshine. And in 2009 only, there will be Sony's Playstation Motion Controller. As part of the Develop Conference, running from July 14-16th, SCEE's Kish Hirani will be giving more details on Sony's new motion controller. Exactly what will be announced is unknown, but either way, the technology is going to be there. Perhaps..
Despite a disjointed appearance at Microsoft's press briefing, apparently The Beatles are having some hands-on input with the upcoming The Beatles: Rock Band video game
Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and windows Yoko-Ono and Olivia Harrison are said to be "the shareholders" of the development team and have helped construct the characters, animations and vivid dreamscapes. "They looked..
Capcom have just released the PS1 remake of the original Rockman (a
k.a. Mega Man) on the Japanese PSN. Sadly, it's pretty impossible to get. In order to celebrate the belated release of Mega Man 9 on the store, Capcom is holding a competition for those who purchase the game. Winners can either claim a T-shirt or a download code for the Rockman...
An interesting listing on Gamestop seems to point to the possibility of a retail box for Capcom's upcoming Marvel vs
Capcom 2</a>. Of course, like other retail editions of downloadable games, there'll be no disc - just a redemption code. Alongside the download code, Gamestop suggest there will be a DVD case, a disc containing exclusive...
Square Enix announced The Last Remnant as a multiplatform title
Even so, it only came out on the XBOX 360 and sold pretty badly. The Playstation 3 version has not been mentioned since. Well until today, when Square Enix's CEO Yoichi Wada stated "it's tough on the development side of things to say that you'll release a game on multiple platforms but end up not doing so, Square Enix has to think..
Chatting to someone we know is a huge Call Of Duty fan recently, we asked if he was excited for Modern Warfare 2
The response? "Nah, more interested in Call Of Duty 6." We didn't have the heart to explain but it really does back up the topic at hand here. Gamasutra are reporting that without the "Call Of Duty" label in the name of Modern Warfare 2, 50% fewer people are aware of..
Apparently Capcom are still a little freaked by this Swine Flu thing
We wouldn't really know, we haven't read/heard anything about Swine Flu for about 2 weeks now. Whatever, we're sure the media are still trying to scare everyone. Alas, while Swine Flu exists, Capcom Japan won't be travelling around the world. And that means there'll be no showings of Dead Rising 2 until TGS. Still, it might make..
Another year, another Glastonbury, another stage, another Playstation sponsorship
Sony will be working with Q Magazine to provide entertainment on the Queen's Head stage which will feature music from the likes of Maximo Park and a load of other bands we've never really listened to. There'll be Singstar and stuff for those of you going to the festival. We presume it's meant to make all the greasy..
Hydrophobia could well end up as being one of the more innovative titles of this generation
Billed as a "survival-adventure" title by developers Dark Energy Digital - the team behind the excellent Inferno Pool - Hydrophobia uses an innovative new water based engine that will see players dynamically control H20 in order to complete puzzles...
With SOCOM: Confrontation barely being workable until patch 1
50, it's nice to see the development team Slant Six expanding the experience for free for patient players. Patch 1.60 will add new Special Forces to the game: the Dutch KCT and the Italian COMSUBIN. So that means a ton of new heads, voices, outfits, weapons and more. Beyond that Slant Six have been busy working on "a major content..
Zen Pinball is bloody awesome
That game deserves every slice of success it earns. So it's with some happiness we see the game sitting aloft the May sales charts. In addition to the excellent flipping of Zen, the following games made up the top 5 PSN games for the month of May: ZEN Pinball Worms Mortal Kombat II Wheel of Fortune flower It's great to see the excellent flower still lingering.
Rockstar's exclusive Playstation 3 may have only been given a title at E3, but since then details have slowly trickled out about the game
Try this quote from Take Two's Ben Feder, whereby he claims Agent will be "a game about espionage, set in the 1970s" and will be "very, very different" from the Grand Theft Auto franchise. Speaking of GTA, when prompted as to whether the XBOX..
So here's a big figure for you to mull over whilst drinking your afternoon tea
There are 25 million Playstation Network accounts at the time of writing. That's rather a lot. Despite some people making more than one account for different regions, we're sure this all averages out at approximately one PSN account per Playstation 3 sold which is quite a...
We think Sony have been really smart with their Playstation Motion Controller
Obviously learning from some of the problems with the EyeToy and carefully observing the backlash served upon the Wii, Sony are constantly touting how the "core" gamer will enjoy the Playstation Motion Controls, as opposed to the more casual approach from both Nintendo and Microsoft. Given the price of..
We warned you yesterday that we doubted Firmware 2
80 would do anything particularly new</a> or amazing. We hope you didn't get your hopes up because we'd hate to have to say "told you so". The firmware update, which should be out sometime today, will improve the quality of playback to some Playstation 3 software. Stop weeping at the back.
We're really not sure how we feel about this pre-order stuff anymore
Giving away extra game locations with a bundle is one thing but preorders is another entirely. Still, we assume these locations are planned for DLC at some point - you know, for those who don't preorder or buy special editions. Alas, the famous Florentine building Pallazo Medici Ricardi will be available to explore by those who..
Wimbledon 2009 is in full swing and Britain's Andy Murray has evaded upset in the first round
Laura Robson looks like a massive talent but will be back to school next week. Keothavong couldn't hold it together on the court nor at the post match interview. And no other British players are worthy of coverage. It's tennis, it's glorious and it's all live in London. Alas, despite Murray's heroics on..
How do you make your Playstation 3 exclusive remake of a bizarro title even better? You¬† demake the music of course
Gone is Katamari's Japanese jazz and instead we have Katamari Forever's 8-bit chip-tune. We've embedded two videos in this post. Can you tell which music is from the remake?
Replace the gaunt looking character from the above screenshot with Nathan Drake or Chris Redfield and you have the perfect Uncharted or Resident Evil 5 screenshot
Interestingly this is in fact Max Payne 3. Quite the shocker really. Alas this really is the new Max Payne game. Yeah, not much else to say. Thoughts?
Indicative of the cheers that erupted due to the announcement of Final Fantasy VII's release on the PSN during Sony's E3 press conference, the Square title has gone on to sell over 100,000 copies in just two weeks
Quite astonishing sales figures really. It makes you wonder what would happen if they fully remade the game doesn't it?
Apparently confirming a series of rumours from throughout the day, ThatGamingSite are reporting that Firmware 2
80 for the Playstation 3 will be available at some point over the next 24 hours. While the update is reported to just be a minor fix, some are touting a "major feature" will be added. We say, don't get your hopes up and wait for the official line from Sony.
You have to admire Infinity Ward's honesty
When asked why they opted for just two players in Modern Warfare 2's co-op mode, spokesman Robert Bowling concluded, "Two player seemed to be the magic number for co-op. That's when it stayed really fun and intense without becoming a clusterf**k of things." Bowling also allayed fears about the single player campaign by confirming Infinity Ward..
The Punisher: No Mercy certainly sounds like an ambitious release on paper
The game aims to provide a complete first-person single-player and multi-player experience based on the Marvel comics. Being developed by Zen Studios, the team behind the excellent Zen Pinball, we're certainly anticipating the game's release which has been announced as July...
Following the announcement of that wonderful Tekken 6 arcade stick bundle earlier this morning, we're sure there's little surprise that a good number of you have stuck in preorders for Namco Bandai's upcoming beat-em-up
But what date will the game be available for you to pick up? Namco Bandai say October 27th. Launching first in North America "with the European, Japanese and Asian release to..
Perhaps lending some credence to that late 2009 Gran Turismo 5 release date, Polyphony Digital took their new GTbyCITRO√čN concept car to the streets of London, and recreated the track featured in Gran Turismo 5: Prologue
The GTbyCITRO√čN is the result of a partnership between Citro√ęn and Polyphony, measuring 4.96 meters and just over a metre high, sporting wide air intakes, rear air-diffuser,..
In an interview with Gamasutra, Peter Moore claims Sony's Playstation Motion Controller will aid EA's "Sports" franchises "very positively"
Moore says that EA are already making plans to bring its "licensed products" and "fitness products" to the new interface. He reckons the new controller is a "huge opportunity" and states "it would be very cool" to bring..
Much like Street Fighter IV's themed fighting sticks, copies of Tekken 6 will be bundled with wireless Hori fighting sticks and an exclusive art book
The bundles will be available for $150 in the USA. No word on whether the bundle will make it to European shores. Namco Bandai also confirmed collaboration with webcomic Penny Arcade. The "Samurai" pack will include a playable Cardboard Tube..
MAG is going to be a shooter on a massive scale
256 players is a big, big tally. In this video diary, the developers from Zipper Interactive talk a little more about how the player count will be managed and why they decided to choose such a large number of players. For some reason hype seems relatively low for this game. We hope Sony can manage to turn up to 11 because if this game works, it has..
After E3 lots of really popular journalists all put their heads together and submit votes for a range of games in numerous categories
These votes are then compiled and represent the cream of the crop. According to the journalists, Sony's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is at the very top of the pile, scooping three separate awards including the "Best Of Show" award. Check out all the winners..
Despite complaints over its graphical capabilities, the European Sony timed-exclusive Ghostbusters: The Video Game has managed to chart at number 4 on the British sales charts
It's interesting because more often than not multiplatform games sell better on the XBOX 360, leaving PS3 versions further down the charts. Alas, all this proves is that multiplatform games sell really well on the PS3 when..
Concerned gamers may be getting their panties in a twist over Activision's threats last week, but when asked by worried Capcom fans over the companies future with the Playstation brand, there was a resounding level of confidence from the major third-party publisher's community manager Shawn Baxter: "I don¬ít see that happening [dropping the Playstation platform]
Monster Hunter has sold over 8.5 million on the PSP worldwide."</blockquote> Pretty much enough said then we think. Rather ironically the PS3 version of Prototype - an Activision published title - stayed in the top 5 of t...
Media Molecule broke a lot of ground with their fantastically innovative LittleBigPlanet
The delightfully British platformer won the hearts of many, with the ludicrously lovable Sackboy character scoring a place in our bed (no innuendo intended, we're talking about where we keep the office teddy - Ed). Still, seems like they're not content with LittleBigPlanet being their only groundbreaking..
Speaking with Videogamer
com</a>, Robomobo president Joshua Tsui has confirmed that there are a number of games planned for upcoming Tony Hawk Ride's skateboard peripheral."It's really important to us that when people buy this package that they understand that, right now we're concentrating on Tony Hawk Ride, but we want to make sure that people have a good return on their investment so..
Sony have been losing a fair amount of money over the past few years
The company involved with consumer electronics, music and movies - aswell as our beloved Playstation - made their first fiscal loss in 14 years last year. As such Sony have embarked upon a restructuring plan that has seen the American Howard Stringer taking the title of president...
The developers of Heavy Rain - Quantic Dream - spent a lot of money on motion capture for their new game
In fact, they spent a year capturing animation for the highly ambitious release. A lot of other developers spend large sums of money on motion capture too. The one way to save such costs is to buy an off the shelf animation package, something which Quantic Dream believe they can provide. Touted..
Beware your eyes valued reader
Beware your eyes indeed. For the frightening Playstation Home event involving humans and hamsters dancing for ghetto supremacy has been immortalized in the chastised YouTube video we've embedded above. Reader press play at your own peril.
Before you go crazy over this, we're pretty sure this is going to turn out as being a database error and nothing to really get too excited about
Still, it's exciting enough to warrant mention. Valve's Left 4 Dead 2 - an XBOX 360/PC "exclusive" - has been tagged for release on the Playstation 3 via an EA webpage. The EA game has since had the Playstation 3 association removed but there is..
Andy Murray has confirmed on the weekend before Wimbledon kicks off that he's won the tounament numerous times - on his Playstation 3
Speaking with The Sun, British hopeful Murray concluded, "I have played a lot of tennis on PlayStation 3 games. I'm not bad . . . pretty good. I've won all the tour events and Wimbledon a few times." However, Murray did conclude that "it's a bit..
It seems Sony haven't just been working on EyeToy and their new Playstation Motion Controller for the past 10 years, but they also toyed with the 3DV technology which Microsoft have implemented for their new Natal device
In a lecture held at Stanford University in 2004, Sony's Richard Marks can be seen demoing early versions of Sony's Playstation Motion Controller (00:25:00) and a simple Breakout..
Read into this what you will, but British online retailer Play
com</a> have set Gran Turismo 5's release date as 27th November 2009. Which is a Friday, we checked. There are a number of things that make this news interesting. Firstly, if Sony wanted Gran Turismo 5 to make an impact (which of course they do), then launching just short of Christmas would be the perfect time for them. Secondly,..
We truly believe Sony have found their niche with the Playstation Motion Controller
While Nintendo have been consistently criticized for not appealing to their key fanbase, Microsoft appear to be heading in a similar direction. Sony on the other hand appear to be reiterating the fact that their motion controller can be used in core experiences - something which is in the very least reassuring..
Despite us reporting that Fat Princess would be out this month, we're afraid that won't be happening anymore
The game has been pushed back (again). The game is now pencilled in for "at some point this summer" ‚ÄĒ which could mean anywhere between July or August. So we'll probably be playing it in December. Seriously though, it's right that...
Complete with country and western and rotin-totin cowboys, this Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood trailer really gets us pumped for Ubisoft's upcoming western shooter
We'll hopefully be reviewing the game over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned.
Host clubs are common part of the Japanese and East Asian night-life
Visiting such a club entitles you to paid conversation with attentive ladies. It seems rather ludicrous but it's popular in the East. Alas it's something SEGA want to incorporate into a coming Yakuza sequel. They're asking for real-life stories and one winner will have their story "built" into the game and their name..
Oh price drop speculation, will thee ever go away? Personally, we wish people would do one of three things: a) buy the Playstation 3 console now; b) wait quietly and patiently to buy the Playstation 3 console when the price inevitably drops, or; c) don't buy the Playstation 3 console
Either way, we're sick of reporting these price drop rumours. Alas, US retailer Gamestop are predicting a pretty big..
In this day and age, third-party publishers developing games exclusively for a single platform is considered a bit weird
With around 30million XBOX 360s out there and 20million PS3s, well it seems a bit silly limiting half your audience. Alas, that's exactly what Ubisoft's Splinter Cell: Conviction will be doing - the game is an XBOX 360 exclusive. But why?"Splinter Cell Conviction is a true..
Remember when Activision's Bobby Kotick said his company might ditch the Playstation platform? Well Sony have issued a canned PR statement a response regarding his comments
They really don't seem phased at all over in camp Sony:"PlayStation has tremendous momentum coming out of E3, and we are seeing positive growth with more than 350 titles slated to hit across all our platforms, including..
A juicy little JPEG dropped into our inbox within the past hour
The Assassin's Creed II Black Edition - which is not yet confirmed outside of Europe - includes a rather nice little Ezio figure alongside a copy of the game, a collector's box, a bonus DVD/soundtrack and three exclusive bonus missions. For those of you in the UK you can preorder the special edition from Play.com right now. It's..
Well, here's something you don't expect to see popping up in your Twitter feed from every source under the sun on a Friday morning
Activision boss Bobby Kotick has warned Sony that his company - Activision, the third largest publisher in the world - will cease to support the Playstation platforms unless they sort out the pricing. Speaking with The Times, Kotick claimed:"I'm getting concerned..
Recently Capcom acquired the rights to publish the popular MotoGP franchise
In doing so they've put together a new team known as Monumental Games, which features veteran members of the MotoGP development team. Launching in March 2010, MotoGP 09/10 will feature all of the bikes, riders, and tracks from the 2009 championship series, including a full-fledged career mode that will give players the..
Have you heard? Call Of Duty is big news
