Killzone 3 is a stupidly pretty PlayStation 3 game, but in justifying just how much Guerrilla's pushing the PlayStation 3 with their lastest title, Herman Hulst has outed the game's split-screen co-op
Speaking in an interview with 1Up about the technical specifications of Killzone 3, Hulst accidentally detailed the much demanded feature: "We found a lot of power after we completed Killzone 2..
We're downloading all 15GB of the DC Universe Online beta as we type
The MMO stress-test has been released for PlayStation Plus subscribers in Europe today (that's all of you) and will run right through the holiday season. The download's handled in two parts — a fairly tiny client followed by a whopping 15GB download. It's handled similarly to the MAG beta, the main difference being that the..
We always thought 720p was a super popular screen resolution
Seeing as like only three games actually support the full 1080p resolution (and you know, the difference isn't all that noticeable on average TVs), we assumed there were millions of users worldwide playing their games in 720p. According to Sony's statistics though, only 2% of people using the PlayStation 3's browser are doing so in 720p..
Looks like Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will not settle for the Middle East as its sole location, as Sony's own portal for the game notes "a variety of spectacular locations around the world from Europe to the Middle East"
No idea how we missed that in the original PR. The derelict chateau featured in Jimmy Fallon's gameplay blow-out last night is presumably set in France, but we've still got..
In Europe, SingStar is amazing
That's because the SingStore is packed with piles and piles and piles of good karaoke DLC. In the US, SingStar is less amazing. That's because there's hardly any great DLC across the pond. Thanks to a deal between Sony and Universal Music, that's all set to change. As Sony moves towards parity between the two regions, they'll be adding a whopping 64 songs to the US..
For all his forced excitement, we don't entirely hate Jimmy Fallon
The guy clearly enjoys video games, and he's giving them a prime-time spot on his TV show. There's something neat about that. Still, it's hard to watch this debut Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception footage without wanting to wrangle the controller off him — dude can't seem to navigate a flight of stairs. Thankfully, Fallon's inability..
If you're in the UK, there's a treat waiting on your PlayStation 3
No need to install a patch or download any updates, just scroll to the "TV" component of the XMB. What will you find? The ITV Player and 4OD. The Guardian reported yesterday that the TV catch-up services would be launching this week, but we didn't expect to find them online this morning. We've had a little play around with..
New look for European homepage
If you launch your PlayStation 3 browser today you might notice a few changes to the standard homepage, which has been redesigned to look better on HDTVs and feature support for PlayStation Move. You'll be able to use the motion controller to browse through a range of trailers, news and features, with Sony promising...
Prototype's the very definition of an "impulse buy" sorta game
The title got decent reviews at launch and has maintained a limited but vocal fan-base. It's been on our "to-do" list for quite some time actually. So it's with some anticipation that we've got wind of Activision's plans to bring the open-world superhero title to the...
Remember THQ's bumper reveal last night? That's right, inSane, the new horror title from Guillermo del Toro
Well guess what? It's not a one-off title. It's pitched as a trilogy, with THQ holding the rights for all three games. Of course, subsequent editions will depend on the success of the first. "With this new series of video games, I want to take players to a place they have never seen..
Kratos is a nice little addition for PlayStation 3 owners intending to pick up Mortal Kombat when it launches on 19th April next year
Retailer exclusive fatalities are not so nice. Still, that's exactly what Warner Bros. has announced, confirming original finishers for Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile when the title is pre ordered from various retailers in the US. Warner Bros. would argue that those..
For the most part, television is the worst thing in the world
The top shows — which typically involve no-hopers desperate to become celebrities, or ex-celebrities desperate to become celebrities again — are pretty awful. That said, everyone has their guilty pleasures. And by guilty pleasures, we mean stuff like Emmerdale — gah, what were you thinking? So it's with some tempered enthusiasm..
The people of Britain like Call Of Duty: Black Ops
How do we know? It's back at the top of the UK sales charts. Again. Y'know what else British people like? Football. Not the kind that's played with eggs, the kind that's played with balls. Football. Yup, FIFA 11's right at the top of the UK sales charts too. In fact, you know what, these charts never really change. Sure there's the appearance of..
Mass Effect 2, you might have heard of it
It's one of the most acclaimed games of 2010 by XBOX 360 and PC gamers alike, and it's finally launching on PlayStation 3 in January of next year. But if you want to know more about the action RPG, then fear not -- a demo for the PlayStation 3 version of the game is set to launch on the PlayStation Store...
Resistance 3's not due for release until September, but Insomniac claims the game is already playable from start to finish
The title's set to benefit from Insomniac's extended development schedule, suggesting the game will be privy to much more polish than its predecessor. Speaking on NeoGAF, Insomniac's community manager James Stevenson revealed: I think and we have to be careful about..
We're just about a month or so away from playing Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3, but the long awaited release of Bioware's acclaimed RPG sequel only marks the start of a bumper year for the franchise on PS3
EA executive Patrick Buechner has confirmed on Twitter that Mass Effect 3 will also launch on PlayStation 3. It was already assumed that Mass Effect 3 — which received its first trailer at the..
We came, we saw, we conquered: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Batman: Arkham City, Resistance 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
There were some big announcements at the Spike VGA awards last night, and we've got the whole lot rounded up into a neat little package with a bow on top. We've also got the show's winners (this is an awards lark after all), where Red Dead Redemption scooped the game of..
Next year's already looking to have one of the strongest video game lineups in a long time
Sometimes great franchises converge on a single year, and 2011 looks to be an example of that. But for every sequel, new IP and downloadable game released in 2011, game developers will be looking over their shoulder. It was telling at last night's VGA awards show that Naughty Dog had to constantly reiterate..
People have been calling for a new SSX game for a number of years, but we're not sure SSX: Deadly Descents is what they had in mind
The flamboyant nature of the PlayStation 2's SSX titles appears to have been replaced by an edgy, gritty angle. Yeah. The trailer's after the jump.
It might be a CG trailer without an inch of gameplay, but this Batman: Arkham City teaser really sets the tone for Rocksteady's upcoming sequel. The trailer introduces the game's new lead antagonist, Dr. Hugo Strange, who is in charge of Arkham City itself. The trailer doesn't reveal much, but it does set the tone.
Sometimes games get announced too early, and we can't help but feel that Guillermo del Toro and THQ's collaboration, Insane, is going to fall victim to that
Despite sounding like our kind of game (THQ's Danny Bilson pitches it as an "horrific adventure"), it's not due to release until 2013. 2013! Sorry THQ, our attention is most certainly piqued, but we're going to have to wait it out..
Perhaps one of the worst kept secrets of the VGAs this year, Activision's announced Prototype 2 for release in 2012
The game introduces a new protagonist, Sgt. James Heller, who's been tasked with destroying the previous game's antihero, Alex Mercer. That's a nice little twist. Still, Activision's slapped a 2012 release date on this. It's hard to...
It was rumoured earlier in the week, but now NetherRealm's put an end to speculation: Kratos will join Mortal Kombat's character roster exclusively on PlayStation 3
The God Of War was officially revealed as part of the VGAs last night, despite waves of speculation last week. Check out the trailer after the jump. (Hint: It's pretty cool.)
They pulled it off
For weeks now we've been worrying whether the style from Resistance 3's artwork would match the actual gameplay. It does. Resistance 3's debut gameplay footage features a style much closer in tone to the original game. The soft colour palette and flickery composition excite us no end, largely because it gives back the franchise the personality that Resistance 2 lost. The actual..
There's some pretty strong imagery in this Mass Effect 3 trailer
Despite the game being accidentally leaked by EA's store over the weekend, there's something stark and interesting about a futuristic London sky-line. The sequel to Bioware's hot RPG franchise is due next Holiday. No platforms have been officially announced, but expect it to land on PlayStation 3. The trailer's after the jump. It's a..
Well that was a surprise
Bethesda's Todd Howard dropped by Spike TV's VGA awards show last night to announce Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The game will launch on November 11th, 2011. No platforms have been confirmed, but expect it to release on PlayStation 3. According to Howard, the game's been in development for two years. The game's debut trailer is after the jump.
In many ways, the Call Of Duty franchise is an XBOX 360 exclusive
It's a "modern" exclusive if you like. Back in the day, exclusivity meant "absolutely not coming out on any other platforms". That kind of exclusive still exists in some cases, but the numbers are diminishing. That's especially accurate when it comes to third parties, where exclusivity tends to mean "a bit of..
Hours away from Mass Effect 3's official unveiling at tomorrow's Spike VGA Awards, EA's spilled the beans. A pre-order listing on the EA website's store has appeared for the anticipated sequel, and as expected it appears the game will almost certainly launch day and date on the PlayStation 3. Mass Effect 2 hasn't even hit the PlayStation 3 yet (it launches in January), but it seems like..
.. a bunch of racers are dropped out of a helicopter onto a collapsing building. Just a normal game of MotorStorm: Apocalypse then? Seriously people, this game needs more hype. We've played it twice now and it's insane. There's more information about MotorStorm's "race where you get dropped from a helicopter onto a skyscraper that is already collapsing, and are expected to win against a pack..
Y'know what games lack? Colour
Sony's upcoming PlayStation mascot crossover title, PlayStation Move Heroes, proves that games can actually utilise more than 10,000 shades of brown and still look good. The game's heading to the PlayStation 3 next year and will obvious support the Move motion controller. How'd you guess?</em>
Unfortunately, most users who've visited PlayStation Home did so in the service's first month or so online
The original app was admittedly barren, and it's proving a challenge for Sony to convince users to give it another go. On the social network's second birthday, Sony's released an infographic detailing the service's growth. Most importantly, the infographic details the service's growth in..
Lots of explosions
A PlayStation platform fan's dream-come-true, PlayStation Move Heroes takes Ratchet, Clank, Jak, Daxter, Sly and Bentley and puts them all in one Move-enabled platforming package. If you want to see new screenshots of the game, you've come to the right place. Sony's North American arm just flung these screenshots our way, showing...
Say what you will about PlayStation, Sony or SCE; there's one area the company has always excelled, and that's in the creation of unique, moving and interesting pieces of interactive entertainment
In 2009 there was flower, a title that missed out on our game of the year accolade by mere inches. In early 2010 there was Heavy Rain, a game so...
One of the highest rated XBOX 360 and PC titles of this generation is finally set to launch on the PlayStation 3 in January. Chatting to IGN, EA's pegged a January 18th/21st launch date for Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe respectively. The PS3 version of the critically acclaimed game will ship with a bunch of extra content. Who's picking this one up, then?
Let's get straight to the point: the PlayStation 3 did not have a good November in the US
The PlayStation 3's 530k units sold was roughly 25% down year-on-year. It's even more worrying when compared to the competition, with the XBOX 360 and Nintendo Wii both managing sales of over 1 million a piece. As concerning as the numbers are, they're also downright confusing. The PlayStation 3's been holding..
Sony's sent us a juicy bit of PR this morning, claiming that they've shipped 5
5 million copies of Gran Turismo 5. The tally puts the series' total beyond the 60 million mark, which is insane for a racing game franchise. The majority of Gran Turismo 5 copies were shipped to Europe, with 3.5 million units sent to the region. North America got 1.2 million copies, while Japan received 550k. Big..
Final Fantasy XIV is out on the PC but it has had a far from successful launch
The game's been plagued by interface issues and general complaints from users, prompting Square Enix to extend the game's "free" period beyond the game's launch. In fact, the game's been received so poorly that Square Enix are currently restructuring the development team in order to fix it. Hiromichi Tanaka has..
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is set in the desert
We know that. But Naughty Dog's never been the type of developer to set a game in one specific place. The Uncharted franchise is known for its globe-trotting (perhaps loved all the more for it), and in the game's debut teaser trailer, there certainly appears to be a number of hints that the UK is on Nathan Drake's agenda. Perhaps the most obvious..
Sony claims that their new official PlayStation Move gun attachment is the perfect accompaniment to motion control shooters such as Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4
The peripheral, which is set to launch day-and-date with Killzone 3 for $39.99, is said to offer the most "realistic experience possible". It's essentially an assault rifle which the PlayStation Move and Navigation Controller slot into..
It's the video game on everyone's lips right now, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is set to get its first trailer during this weekend's VGA awards show, and trust GameTrailers pimp Geoff Keighley to drum up some more anticipation -- if that was possible
Asked if the trailer would be "in-engine", Keighley responded, "I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by what we show. Definitely..
Capcom's confirmed the appearance of Street Fighter IV's C
Viper and the X-Men's Storm in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. The duo duke it out in a brand new trailer embedded after the jump. The face-off's not as kinky as you might imagine. Storm's always been a staple of the Marvel Vs. Capcom titles, but C. Viper's a newcomer. We quite enjoyed her mix of acrobatics and button-popping cleavage in Street..
Costume Quest's "Grubbins On Ice" will hit the PlayStation Network in time for Christmas, launching on December 21st in North America
The downloadable add-on includes a new area, new costumes and a bunch of new quests to complete. A perfect accompaniment to the festive season indeed.
Dead Space 2's out soon and to tide you over until that all important January launch, EA's announced a demo
That demo's not out for a few more weeks though, so to get you through until then, have a new trailer on us. We won't charge you (this time). The footage details the Necromorphs which, surprise surprise, aren't very pleasant. We can't wait to chop their limbs off.
Sony's released boxart for the just-announced Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
In fact, the game is already available for pre-order at some retailers. Seems a bit crazy pre-ordering a game this early, but we'll understand if you get swept up into the hype. It is Uncharted after all.</em>
Anybody who's anybody loves the Uncharted franchise
The series is clearly having a pretty big impact on both Sony and Naughty Dog's bank-balance, with the two Uncharted titles released thus far racking up sales of nearly 8 million units worldwide. Those are some pretty big numbers for a relatively new IP. See publishers, new franchises can be successful. Take a risk.
If anyone can justify stereoscopic 3D technology, it's Naughty Dog
While that might not be a fair assessment on other developer's capabilities (MotorStorm: Apocalypse and Killzone 3 both look stunning in 3D), it's a thought that none-the-less crossed our mind after this afternoon's Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception announcement. Following the game's announcement this afternoon, Naughty Dog's Arne..
Entertainment Weekly's just outed the third game in Naughty Dog's esteemed third-person action franchise, Uncharted
The latest title, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, will take protagonist Nathan Drake to the desert. The game will release in 2011. The setting, which was rumoured recently, will feature Nate's search for a lost city in the Arabian Peninsula and vast wasteland of the Rub al Khali..
SEED Studios has revealed that their PlayStation Network exclusive real-time strategy game, Under Siege, will launch later this month with a price-tag of £11
99 / 14.99 / $19.99. The game will feature full PlayStation Move support, as well as YouTube upload, a level editor and more. We've embedded the intro after the jump. You should watch it, it's awesome.
TellTale's bizarre point-and-click adventure, Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People, has been confirmed for the PlayStation Network
The episodic series will launch on the US PlayStation Store on 21st December, and will follow "shortly thereafter" in Europe.
If you're still heavily engaged in Zipper's massive action game, MAG, then you should probably know that a new patch has been released today
The update brings a fancy new multiqueue which allows you to line-up several game modes all at once. It replaces the game's Directive feature. The patch also includes the ability to take 720p screenshots in-game. The full patch notes can be found here.
Trust EA to make Christmas a thing of misery
Visceral's announced that a Dead Space 2 demo will hit the PlayStation Network on December 21st. Unfortunately, we won't be playing it. Why? Because we're too excited for Dead Space 2. "That makes no sense," we hear you scream. Well it kinda does. We're so excited about Dead Space 2 that we want every single moment to be a surprise. We don't..
Piling on the heart-ache, 1Up's currently running a massive retrospective on SEGA legend Yu Suzuki
Why should you care about Yu Suzuki? Because he's the guy behind Shenmue. We all know Shenmue is the best thing since sliced bread. Shenmue is so good, we're still writing about it ten years later on a website dedicated to a platform it never released on. Speaking with 1Up, Suzuki's revealed that..
If there's one franchise that fans have been longing for on current generation consoles, it's SSX
The EA developed snowboarding franchise was a huge hit on the PlayStation 2, and it's almost bizarre that it hasn't made the jump to PlayStation 3 yet. We can only assume EA wants to make sure the game's done properly. According to Kotaku, a new SSX does exist and has been in development for two years..
Sure it looks choppy and, honestly, a little bit crap, but it's worth remembering that LittleBigPlanet 2 has not even come out yet, and already people are pulling off wild stuff like re-creating Wolfenstein 3D within it
We've absolutely zero idea how the creator even got this to work to be honest. It's insane.
Gotta laugh at all those people throwing around the words "useless", "pointless" and "crap" when PlayStation Plus was announced. We're some of the most hardcore PlayStation Network users out there, and Plus has already lavished us in a ridiculous array of goodies. Today we're set to get a few more. SCEE's revealed...
HipHopGamer was spot on -- Sony's angry anti-hero, Kratos, is set to appear in yet another franchise that's not his own
The God Of War — who's already taken time from slaying Olympus to participate in a spot of golf — is apparently set to appear in the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot's arcade mode. According to Official PlayStation Magazine, Kratos will get his own set of moves and fatality..
Resistance 3 is set to get a full gameplay blow-out this weekend as part of Spike TV's VGA awards show
As part of the build-up for the reveal, Insomniac's dropped a bunch of concept art on the PlayStation Blog. Some of the screens we've seen before, others are new. Either way, it's nice to get some of the creative context on the images from creative lead Marcus Smith. What we're most curious about..
SNK's confirmed they're bringing the NEOGEO Station to the North American PlayStation Store on December 21st
The collection of PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable titles will be released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NEOGEO console. The NEOGEO Station is billed as a continuously growing library of NEOGEO titles, with each game...
Remember The Agency? No, not Agent, The Agency -- Sony Online Entertainment's spy-inspired MMO? According to Kotaku it's due out in the second-half of 2011
Apparently the game was delayed because it still "needed work", but it would appear SOE's nearing a conclusion on the game. It's interesting, because if The Agency were to make next year, SOE would launch two MMOs in a pretty short..
Sony's confirmed that their ambitious mannequin puzzler, echochrome ii, will launch in time for Christmas on the American PlayStation Store
No word of a European date yet, but we're going to assume it will follow North America's lead. echochrome ii is one of the most anticipated PlayStation Move titles since the device's launch, using the motion...
Presumably in response to the rush of reviews claiming, "Blah blah blah the damage is rubbish and the game took five years to make and we spent three minutes reviewing it because the damage is rubbish," Polyphony Digital's upgraded Gran Turismo 5 to version 1.03, introducing the option to turn-on the game's damage features. Great, now you can pretend you're playing Destruction Derby..
Sony released Firmware 3
55 for the PlayStation 3 last night. It does nothing but update the system's security. You can download it now. Knock yourselves out. P.S. Rumours are swirling about a Google Chrome browser update in the new year. Make of that what you will. It would probably be the best news ever, though.
Whether you think she looks cool or like a bloodied version of Ruud Van Nistelrooy, the new Lara Croft is here to stay
That's because Crystal Dynamics has spent the past few years creating a brand new Tomb Raider adventure, one which hopefully propels the franchise back to its former glory. The game was officially announced yesterday as part of GameInformer's cover reveal, but now eagle-eyed NeoGAF..
Last week's leader, Gran Turismo 5, is back down to the number four slot this week in the UK weekly sales charts
Call Of Duty: Black Ops reclaimed its place at the top of the charts, with FIFA 11 and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood all sitting above Sony's racer. Ubisoft's Nintendo Wii dance games claimed two of the top ten spots, with a bunch of other Wii titles joining Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit..
Oh hey, now we remember; Killzone is the first-person shooter franchise with industry leading visuals isn't it? We'd nearly forgotten, until someone leaked this off-camera Killzone 3 single-player footage
It doesn't matter that the camera is wobbly and the quality is low, Killzone 3's prowess filters through. Most importantly, the voice acting and character animation seems much better this time..
Y'know what franchise has needed a reboot for a long, long time? Tomb Raider
Y'know what franchise is getting a reboot after a long, long time? Tomb Raider. That's right, Square Enix has announced a new Tomb Raider game called, well, Tomb Raider. It's an origin story too, and it looks kinda awesome. "Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider," said Darrell Gallagher, head of..
Remember 2009, when similar-looking super hero titles launched on the PlayStation 3? Those games were Prototype and inFamous
Many forum topics debated which game would come out "the winner", but it wasn't long before people totally forgot about Prototype, succumbing to inFamous' brilliance. A sequel to inFamous was announced at E3 this year and based on our hands-on impressions it raises..
Zipper Interactive's revealed that MAG will get a gameplay patch next week
Patch 2.10 includes "gameplay and technical amendments" along with new game queue technology. Bit of a non-story this really, isn't it? Yep, we thought so. It's that kinda day.
In a super-cute update on the American-arm of the PlayStation Blog, SCEA's released a check-list of tasks to complete as LittleBigPlanet 2's launch date nears
The box-art and ESRB rating? Totally done. The online servers? They're still being tested, and SCEA promises that more beta invites are going out this month. Check your PSN email address to see if you've snagged a code. What else is there? Oh..
Whatever you do, remember to attach your PlayStation Move's wrist-strap before you even consider downloading Sony's Top Darts from the PlayStation Network
The Devil's Details developed PlayStation Move dart-a-thon is set to hit the PlayStation Store before Christmas, and will feature a host of single-player tournaments and simultaneous multiplayer...
Dead Nation is a really good top-down zombie blaster, and it's definitely most enjoyable in co-op
The problem is, the game's online co-operative component doesn't have voice chat. Bizarre, right? A little bit. Housemarque's said that they are working to implement the feature with a post-release patch, and hope to introduce it as quickly as possible. So it's annoying that it missed the proper..
If you've ever thought that the PlayStation 3 needs more Ghostbusters games, then Atari's Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime has totally got your back
The PlayStation Network follow-up to 2009's Ghostbusters: The Video Game is being developed by Wanako, and features online (and local) four-player top-down ghost guzzling.Unfortunately the game will not...
We're kinda in a strop with regards to Hollywood's adaptation of the Uncharted franchise
Why? Because it sounds like the worst thing to have ever existed. It's so bad, we don't even want to type about it. But we'll force ourselves to, hoping someone, somewhere reads our words and realises what a huge stinking pile of turd this movie is going to be. According to director David O Russell, the movie..
We're still swimming through all the information Polyphony Digital's, Kazunori Yamauchi, dropped regarding Gran Turismo 5's mechanical damage patch next month, but the studio gaffer's decided to reveal some more upcoming updates
According to the OCD legend, GT5 will get a patch at the end of this month allowing users to back-up saved data. Handy. Kaz recently revealed that Gran Turismo 5 would be..
The more we read about Resistance 3, the more excited we get
The first game was incredible, and for all its faults, the second game was pretty good too. Unfortunately for Resistance 2 it had to follow-up the original, and instead of building on the atmosphere and tone that made the first game so successful, it went in a different, less unique direction. The original Resistance had more ties to..
At times Gran Turismo 5 feels more like an RPG than a racing game
Collecting cars, building them up, grinding out credits and collecting more cars is a big part of the experience outside of the racing. It's an experience that Need For Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed is aiming to avoid. Well, certainly if lead designer Andy Tudor has anything to do with it. [Gran Turismo and Forza] are on pedestals at..
It's been a while since we posted the weekly Japanese hardware and software sales numbers
We stopped posted them a while back because we were running out of things to say — the hardware charts in particularly nearly always occupy the same order of systems, with even the numbers staying fairly predictable. So why have we decided to post the numbers this week? Gran Turismo 5. Sony's banner..
Polyphony Digital's boss, Kazunori Yamauchi, has revealed that Gran Turismo 5 will get a patch bringing mechanical damage options to the game this month
The details of the patch are unknown, with some sources stating it will improve on the game's current cosmetic damage model, while others believe it will allow the feature to be selected at any point in the game. Currently damage needs to be..
Following up on reports we posted earlier in the week, SEGA's confirmed that the Yakuza team are indeed working on a third-person sci-fi shooter known as Binary Domain
The game's set in 2080 Tokyo during a conflict between humans and robots (a-hah), and it has seen the city split into two: the rich and the poor. What I wanted to create this time was a dramatic and energetic sci-fi shooter. When..
Continuing the trend of "every video game must have a collector's edition", Square Enix has announced a special package to go alongside the release of next year's Deus Ex: Human Revolution
The beefed up package includes the game, a behind-the-scenes DVD, a motion graphic novel and a 40-page comic ma-jig. Square's also announced pre-order bonuses including a bonus mission and special shot-gun for..
Guerrilla's announced that it's bringing the bonkers Killzone 3 "Helghast edition" previously announced for North America to Europe too
The package is absolutely insane, including a Helghast's mask, action figure and art-book. Guerrilla have also announced a steel-book edition of the game which includes the game, a dynamic theme, soundtrack and retro map pack. Naturally the Helghast Edition gets..
Not to be outdone by Microsoft's Kinect sales report yesterday, Sony's countered by revealing that the PlayStation Move has sold 4
1 million units worldwide since its launch in September. The number does not include sales for the PlayStation Eye or Navigation Controller. Sony also reiterated that there are over 25 supported/dedicated titles already available for the PlayStation Move. Our favourites..
Yes, Dead Nation is technically another zombie game
But it's a rad one. We know because we've been playing it and it's awesome. The game's from the makers of Super Stardust HD, basically the masters of the dual-stick shooter. And Dead Nation is a dual-stick shooter. So regardless of whether you're sick of zombies or not, you're going to want to buy this. It's out this week on the PlayStation Store..
THQ's revealed plans to announce two "core" PlayStation Move titles soon
THQ's core games boss Danny Bilson revealed on Twitter, "Two core games coming on Move. One is a hybrid with Move and 3D." THQ has been on somewhat of a charge lately, making plenty of exciting announcements. Looks like the refreshed publisher's got one more title up its sleev
The first Uncharted was all about creating believable characters in a next-generation world
With the cast already established, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves' selling point was its snow effects. The gorgeous opening mission saw protagonist Drake climbing around amidst a minor blizzard. With Uncharted 3 hotly tipped to make an appearance at next month's VGA awards show, Kotaku's
We've grown up watching the various PDC darts tournaments and if there is one thing we object to (and it applies to any sport really), it's the whole "Roman gladiator" vibe the TV production studios gloss onto the game
It's just dumb. Thankfully, PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour is really rather good, despite the melodrama of this trailer. We'd go as far as saying it's one of the best..
Rumour. Rumour. A poster on Japanese message board 2ch claims to have an advanced copy of Famitsu magazine which confirms the existence of a new PlayStation 3 shooter from the Yakuza team. The sci-fi robot game, generically titled Binary Domain, is said to be a collaboration between Toshihiro Nagoshi Yakuza team and western developers. Apparently the game is set in futuristic Tokyo and has..
"The inclusion of damage is so slight as to be insignificant, and even the most violent of crashes will only result in a polygon shifting slightly ajar," writes IGN's Martin Robinson in the website's review of Gran Turismo 5
It's a statement that's not strictly true, and has been exposed by those who've actually had time to play through the game since its release last week. To be fair to IGN, they..
Gran Turismo 5 is the very definition of a "system seller"
Like Super Mario for Nintendo and Halo for Microsoft, Gran Turismo is the holy grail of franchises for PlayStation. There's no doubt that God Of War and Uncharted are big-name games, but Gran Turismo sits in a league of its own. And SCEUK reckons that it's going to push systems this Christmas.
