Devil May Cry fans -- this is a package we're sure you can get behind
All three of the PlayStation 2 favourites, bundled together in one high-definition collection. Sure, you've played the games before — but at least Dante's got white hair right?
Ubisoft's confirmed that its super stylish platformer, Rayman Origins, will receive a demo on the PlayStation Network next week (November 9th)
The gameplay slice will feature three levels from the Jungle, Food and Ocean worlds. Those players capable of collecting enough Electoons will unlock a new costume. There's a new trailer after the jump,...
Street Fighter X Tekken looks ace
But in a way, it feels familiar. The Tekken characters slip easily into Capcom's inky Street Fighter IV aesthetic, giving the game a generally cohesive look. Henceforth, we're more excited about getting our first glimpse at Tekken X Street Fighter — Namco Bandai's bite at the cherry. That game will see Street Fighter characters super-imposed into Tekken's 3D..
Don your tin-foil hat, there's a backlash incoming
Sony's just announced that it is cutting down on the number of active devices PlayStation Network content can be shared on. In a new PlayStation Blog post, Sony has explained that any content purchased after November 18th will only be compatible with up to two activated PlayStation 3s or PlayStation...
In a brand new gameplay trailer for the ridiculously exciting downloadable horror game, AMY, developer Lexis Numerique has discussed some of its influences
None come stronger than PlayStation 2 classic, ICO, which Lexis Numerique heralds as a milestone release in video game history. "The first time you finished ICO, what remained was great...
Developer Bugbear is almost ready to release its controversial Ridge Racer reboot, Ridge Racer: Unbounded
The surprisingly destructive arcade racer has been steered towards a release date of March 6th by publisher Namco Bandai. We know fans have got some concerns with the game's Burnout inspired edges, but having spent some hands-on time with the game recently, we think it's going to surprise some..
We know fans of the franchise absolutely hate what Ninja Theory's shown of its Devil May Cry franchise -- or DmC as we're supposed to call it
But everything we've seen of the game looks nuts. Drumming up our hype is this rad new batch of screenshots, which shows Dante sprinting through an almost Wonderland-esque skyline. "But why's he got brown hair?" There's more screens available..
If you're already dreading this winter, then Square Enix has got the perfect antidote: crank up the central heating, get yourself comfortable, and tuck into the Japanese publisher's "Winter Of RPGs" PSN offering
The campaign will see some of the publisher's most revered RPGs brought to the North American PSN over coming weeks, with Chrono Cross,...
We already know that Need For Speed: The Run will have all of the same social multiplayer features as its predecessor -- that means Autolog, etc -- but what of the actual online experience in the cross-country racer? EA's latest trailer spills the beans, showcasing a kind of "Wheel Of Fortune" system which rewards you with anything from additional XP through to new cars should you meet specific targets
All looks nice and tidy, as you'd expect from a big-budget EA title. Catch the trailer after the jump. [youtube:www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp50..
Skyrim might be right around the corner, but Bethesda's not done promoting its last big open-world RPG just yet
Bethesda's announced that it is to re-release Fallout: New Vegas next February, bundling all of the game's content packs and patches into a single Ultimate Edition. That's a lot of Fallout. The bundle's due out February 7th in North America, and February 10th in Europe.
Ubisoft and Media Molecule's teamed up to announce this ridiculously cute Ezio Auditore costume for LittleBigPlanet 2
The costume — which will be available from November 15th — has been produced in order to celebrate the release of the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Revelations. N'awwww.
We suspect many of you are still playing through Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception's killer single-player campaign
That's fine. But when you're done, you might want to turn your attention to the game's multiplayer component. SCEE's finally got around to matching North America's Fortune Hunters' Club offer, which bags you seven pieces of Uncharted 3 DLC for just £19.99. You'll get three skin packs, in..
After months of silence, Konami is finally preparing to re-announce Metal Gear Solid: Rising
The game was last seen at E3 a couple of years ago — but hope of a re-reveal emerged late last month when the UK edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine teased some form of announcement. "The truth about Metal Gear Solid: Rising will finally be revealed at the 2011 VGAs by Hideo Kojima,"..
Behind the scenes development videos always fascinate us, but nothing intrigues us more than those discussing the audio
In a new Skyrim developer diary, Bethesda has blown the doors off the sound design process. The video accompanies a new podcast and blog post, outlining the process in a little more detail. You can find more information on Bethesda's official website.
Square Enix has released a commentated version of its most recent Hitman: Absolution trailer
Doing the talking is game director Tore Blystad and gameplay director Christian Elverdam. Catch the talk-through after the break.
Seems like previous reports were bang on the money: GameInformer has lifted the lid on its December issue, revealing with it Rainbow 6: Patriots
The latest in the long-running Rainbow Six series is scheduled to release in 2013 on PlayStation 3, and will take the series in a "bold new narrative direction". The "controversial" new entry will see players pitched against a terrorist..
Despite suffering something of a backlash since release, Heavy Rain remains one of our favourite PlayStation 3 exclusives
Fundamentally different from any other game available — even a good 18 months after its original release — Heavy Rain offers a slower, more deliberately narrative driven experience. We'd urge anyone that hasn't had the chance to experience Heavy Rain yet to pick up the..
"Hungry Giraffe is the only giraffe-feeding game on the PSN store," reads a cryptic teaser from British developer Laughing Jackal, "And it's coming soon to PlayStation Minis
" The game — still shrouded in some secrecy — will see you collecting food in order to grow your giraffe's neck. Sounds utterly bonkers. Laughing Jackal is behind some...
Rockstar's formally announced Grand Theft Auto V after yesterday's debut trailer
According to the official press release, the game will take place in Los Santos and its surrounding hills, countryside and beaches. Rockstar describes the game as the "most ambitious yet". The game will see you go in "pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California"..
Tenuous one this, but still fun
NowGamer has spotted what it believes to be a cryptic release date in Grand Theft Auto V's debut trailer. There's lingering scene that focuses on a man erecting a 'For Sale' sign. Written on the curb to the right is the number '2405', which NowGamer hypothesises could point towards a May 24th release date. Before you American naysayers pop into the comments to claim..
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant
Man, Sony's marketing department has gone absolutely nuts lately. Take this new Kevin Butler featured Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception promotion. The platform holder's giving away $10,000 for the person able to sit in front of their computer with their arm outstretched for the longest. Seriously? Seriously. Sounds nuts, eh? That's because it is, but Kevin Butler sort..
Picture the scene
It's business as usual at THQ headquarters. Excitement is high regarding the publisher's upcoming Saints Row: The Third, and everyone's working hard to ensure the game's the biggest success it possibly can be. Then suddenly Rockstar updates its website, announcing Grand Theft Auto V. The news must have hit like a punch to the throat. THQ boss Brian Farrell says that's not the..
If you've been waiting desperately for more Silent Hill, then you're about to get your wish
Konami's attached dates to three Silent Hill titles that are all due to release in early 2012 — so even if the world ends before the year's out, at least you'll get your fix of the premium horror franchise. First up is the Silent Hill HD Collection, which is due out on January 24th. That game bundles the..
Douse those flames and calm down for a second
If your Internet connection can hold out for long enough, you might just get a glimpse of the world's first trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. As previously rumoured, the game will take place in a fictional Los Angeles. It's a sunny, stylish trailer that shows off the game's variety of districts. Rockstar's keeping the game's protagonist under wraps for..
If you're one of those people that tried PlayStation Home back in the hazy days of 2008, danced around in the main plaza and then decided to devote the next three years of your life to ragging on the social world in forums and blog comments -- then you're about to get a shock
PlayStation Home has been going through a subtle transformation for a good...
Some of the hottest speculation following yesterday's Grand Theft Auto V trailer suggested that the narrator was none other than Ray Liotta -- or Vice City's Tommy Vercetti as you may know him
That rumour's been squashed. But while that particular point of discussion's off the cards for now, PC Gamer has popped up with its own theory. It reckons that Grand Theft Auto V will have multiple..
We had a couple of issues with Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, but the controls weren't one of them
Still, that's not stopping a small pocket of the Internet from complaining, with members on the NeoGAF forum criticising the game's "broken" gunplay. This morning, Naughty Dog's community manager Arne Meyer has hit back, saying the game is not broken, just different to Uncharted 2. "In..
Before Dead Island launched, developer Techland was committed to a life of good ideas and grotty execution
Both nail'd and Call Of Juarez: The Cartel — Techland's other two releases this year — suffered from the same fate. But Dead Island was different; it had polish, and for the first time in the developer's history, it seemed to have a budget too. It wasn't going to take long before hints..
We've made it clear over the past couple of weeks that we think EA's Syndicate reboot actually looks pretty rad
The game's colourful, sci-fi setting has an identity of its own that's a million miles away from the gritty browns of the current modern combat first-person shooter landscape. But really, EA, didn't you get the memo? Today is Grand Theft Auto V day. No matter how good your Syndicate..
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has an amazing cinematic score
But for as poignant and moving as Greg Edmonson's orchestral work is in the main game, it's unlikely to get anyone embarrassing themselves on the dance floor. That's where British electronic musician Kirk Spencer's come in, with two remixes exclusively commissioned by SCEE. The tunes sample Uncharted 3's 'City Of Sand' and 'Desert'..
Chirpy puzzle-platformer Toki Tori is set to release on the European PlayStation Network from November 16th, developer Two Tribes has announced
The GameBoy Color classic will score new levels, PlayStation Move compatibility, stereoscopic 3D support and more. It will also include an intuitive new easy mode for newcomers. The game will run you a super...
Blimey, PlayStation Home director Jack Buser wasn't messing about when he said the virtual world's relaunch was coming soon
It's coming tomorrow. "We are launching a new experience for PlayStation Home that will feature a revamped Home Square and a new 'districts' design that will help you find games, people and places that fit your favourite game genre," explained Sony online marketing..
Capcom's Seth Killian has revealed that fighting fans won't have to wait an age before they get to play the next entry in the Street Fighter series
Eager fans waited ten years between the release of Street Fighter III and Street Fighter IV, but it's not a time-frame Capcom wants to retread. If I have anything to say about it, and I do, you will not have to wait ten years for Street Fighter V,..
Finally, an explanation for the emo look
Developer Ninja Theory has revealed that its new Devil May Cry reboot, DmC, takes place in a parallel dimension to previous entries in Capcom's popular series, lending some explanation to the not-so-subtle tweaks the British developer has made. Capcom's said that the traditional silver-haired Dante might return in future entries, with the favourite appearing..
On the back of solid growth worldwide, Sony Australia has revealed that PlayStation 3 has beaten out its rivals to become the best selling system in the region for 2011 so far
Sony boasted that it has not only outsold its competitors, but it is also offering the highest value share to retailers according to NPD Australia data.
Expect servers to crash, tears to be shed and fanboys to flip out later this afternoon
Rockstar's preparing to release the debut trailer for Grand Theft Auto V, and it's going to pretty much dominate conversation for the coming weeks we should imagine. What are they going to show? We're not sure. It's too tough to call. The strongest rumours place the game in LA, with multiple protagonists. But..
Sony's released its financial information for the second quarter of 2011
And while declining television sales and the strong Yen gave the company a bit of a battering (incurring losses of about $346 million), the PlayStation 3 business continued its growth. It seems like so long ago since the bleak days of PS3, when Sony's system was getting battered both critically and financially. But that's..
As has become common-place for any major fighting game release, Hori has announced a bunch of new Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 fighting sticks
The stick's are due to launch in Japan on November 17th alongside the game. The PS3 version will retail for ¥13,800. There's no word of a Western release just yet.
Chatting on the latest episode of GameTrailers' Bonus Round series, Naughty Dog's Amy Hennig has revealed the lengths the Sony owned developer went to create Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
"We absolutely killed ourselves on this project. I think this was the hardest thing any of us have ever done," Hennig explained. Her sentiments were promptly echoed by game director Justin Richmond:..
EA's signed a cross-marketing partnership with Dr
Pepper to release some exclusive DLC for Battlefield 3 this week. Those that purchase a specially marked bottle of Dr. Pepper will score a redeemable code for a variety of in-game Battlefield 3 goodies. This includes PlayStation Home avatars, multiplayer skins and special edition dog-tags. We're pretty keen on the Rebecca Black themed dog-tag..
With Battlefield 3 already on store shelves, attention has turned to Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
While its single-player experience is pretty much guaranteed to be a mouth-watering roller-coaster ride, many are keen to see what's changed on the multiplayer side. Headline features include two new modes called Kill Confirmed and Team Defender. These take existing multiplayer hallmarks and spin..
There haven't been many great romances in video games
Those that immediately spring to mind are Super Mario and Princess Peach, Sonic and Amy, and Ryo Hazuki and Nozomi. We're sure hundreds of you are screaming into your monitors right now, but the reality is that traditional relationships are often hard to find in the interactive medium. And that's why Elena and Nathan Drake's relationship in..
We've always seen the potential in PlayStation Home as a gaming platform, and its great to see Sony finally deliver on that
In a new video posted on the PlayStation Blog, excitable director Jack Buser has offered a tour of the new features we can expect in the rebooted virtual world. Buser's really keen to emphasise Home's new focus on games,...
Sony's now infamous weekly maintenance is slotted in once again for this Thursday
This time you'll be unable to access key online features betweeen 16:00 and 18:00PM UK time. No reason was given for the maintenance. Feel free to vent your frustration in the comments.
The PlayStation 3 version of indie favourite Machinarium will be the "ultimate version" when it launches on the PlayStation Network next year
That's according to the game developer Amanita Design's boss Jakub Dvorský. This PlayStation version will be the ultimate version of Machinarium, he told Eurogamer. There will be a few new features,...
As far as we're concerned, Resident Evil 4 is the best third-person shooter ever produced
Resident Evil 5 is certainly less of a landmark, but a poor setting and unnecessary co-operative focus are to blame for that. In an interview with Eurogamer, producer Tsukasa Takenaka has responded to criticisms that both games ditched Resident Evil's traditional horror roots. According to Takenaka, both..
Sure the current release schedule is stacked with promising fresh content, but the PlayStation community has been keen to announce its desperation for classic games over the past few months
And SCEA's more than happy to oblige. The publisher's announced on the US PlayStation Blog that it is to release three more classic PS2 titles on the PlayStation...
As if you needed reminding? Admit it: you didn't need reminding at all, did you? Arguably the biggest PlayStation 3 release of the year drops onto North American store shelves today, and you're absolutely going to want to pick it up
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is an absolutely tour-de-force, spanning one of the most engrossing campaigns we've experienced since, well, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves..
Capcom's announced that its Slant Six developed third-person shooter, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, will get a beta ahead of its March release "early next year"
Producer Mike Jones made the announcement as part of a presentation at Capcom's Gamers Day last week, though was coy on specific details. The game itself is due out on March 20th, so expect concrete information soon. [Thanks..
Naughty Dog has teased that fans will go "ballistic" over one particular piece of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception's DLC
Chatting with GameTrailers, Naughty Dog's Justin Richmond revealed that DLC for Drake's latest adventure will be both plentiful, and "even cooler" than previous entries in the series. "We have some really cool stuff for DLC this time, even way cooler than what we..
It's always exciting when Sony teases the words "surprise announcement"
But it nearly always leads to a bunch of wild and unattainable expectations. So let's keep our hype gauge in check, then. Jump Festa, a Japanese games festival, is set to take place in Tokyo later this year. Awkwardly the event will coincide with the launch of PlayStation Vita, with the exposition taking place on December 17th..
Eagle eyed gamers spotted a description and boxart for Saints Row: Money Shot earlier in the year
The downloadable game (content?) promised to put you in control of a cypher, "a deadly assassin in the world of Saints Row with the most sophisticated weaponry that Ultor has to offer." According to the description, Money Shot was a mini-game in which you used said complex weaponry to ..
This is actually somewhat staggering
EA has announced that according to internal estimates, Battlefield 3 has sold more than five million copies since its launch last week. The most amazing thing is that it's the biggest launch in the publisher's history. Like, ever. So far players have executed 73 million saviour kills, 48 million revives, and destroyed 67 million vehicles. Who else loves..
Capcom might be losing faith in its Slant Six developed squad based shooter, but Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City still looks pretty cool to us
This latest cinematic trailer goes heavy on atmosphere, and pretty much knocks it out of the park. There's a smattering of gameplay footage in there too, which looks decent. The game's out in March next year. Hit the jump to get a glimpse of Nemesis..
There are two types of people in this world
Those that Plus and those that don't. Regardless of which camp you fall into, SCEA might have an offer that will twist your arm. It's offering a free version of Telltale's Jurassic Park: The Game (that's all four of the game's episodes) to anyone that purchases a year of PlayStation Plus between November...
EA has unveiled a new custom soundtrack system for its upcoming snowboarding reboot, SSX
The technology — entitled Harmony — sounds similar to the functionality in Wipeout HD. It essentially dynamically mixes your music in-game, so if you hit a particularly big jump, EA's able to fade out your custom soundtrack and replace it with the soothing sound of the wind whistling in your ears. Those..
Believe it or not, PlayStation is something of a burgeoning brand in India
While Sony could be forgiven for resting on its strongholds — Europe, Japan and North America — the company is constantly looking to find ways to develop brand loyalty in new regions. And that's why you see PlayStation get a strong push in areas such as Latin America and of course India. One such philosophy Sony's..
We don't remember The Darkness being so gross
Sure we remember the portions of the campaign when it went really crazy — the Hellish trenches scene continues to haunt us — but geez, this latest trailer for The Darkness II gives Mortal Kombat a run for its money. We suppose it's appropriate for Hallowe'en, but man, if you're eating right now, we can only recommend that you don't click play.
"Best Sonic game in years," is a phrase we've been dishing out rather liberally in recent months
But it couldn't be closer to the money. SEGA's really hitting the jack-pot with Sonic Generations, providing a campaign that not only appears to nail the two-dimensional aspect of Sonic The Hedgehog's gameplay, but also the three-dimensional portion too. The game's out this week in Europe and North..
With Red Faction: Guerrilla being widely recognised as a pretty good game, many expected that its sequel, Armageddon, would knock things out the park
The problem is, the game just sort of existed. It'd didn't generate any sort of excitement, released without a whimper, and almost immediately disappeared. Environmental artist Wayne Adams believes the game's issue was consistency. "In the end..
Valve's Chet Faliszek has confirmed that it's cross-platform PlayStation Network first-person shooter, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, will skip on its planned October beta
With the month being pretty much over at the time of writing, we can't say that we're surprised. Chet revealed the news in an interview with ESEA, citing feedback from...
Bond goes boom
James Bond's third appearance on PlayStation 3 is less than 24 hours away in North America: GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is ready to grab PlayStation Move by the tuxedo lapels and make a witty remark. To celebrate the suave spy's first motion-controlled outing on PS3, Activision has created this rather nice launch trailer below that hits...
The latest trailer for Grasshopper's bizarre third-person slash 'em up, Lollipop Chainsaw, pretty much sells itself when it plasters enormous curse words all over the screen
Oh, and the part where protagonist Juliet Starling chainsaws a dude in half, only for him to immediately heal back together and ask, "Did you think that hurt?" Judging by the way he asks the question, we'd guess he..
Tenuous, this, so slot it under the folder with "Rumour" emblazoned in pink marker pen ink on the front
Sony Santa Monica is apparently staffing up for a new project in the God Of War series. "Mega developer making sequel to ginormous franchise," is definitely not hard to believe — but the job listing TheSilentChief cites is a bit bland. The position for a Senior Staff Concept artist..
According to the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, the first round of DLC for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will include a spattering of classic character skins for you to parade around as in the game's multiplayer component
The majority of the skins appear to be ripped directly out of Uncharted 2's multiplayer component, but there are a few new fresh faces amongst them. The skins will apparently..
When the Nintendo Wii was new and shiny, hardcore gamers screamed for some traditional third-party experiences
Publishers compromised by releasing rails-shooters, with some of the more memorable titles being Capcom's Resident Evil 'Chronicles' series. The light-gun games — entitled Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles — fleshed out portions of classic Resident Evil fiction from a..
Given the ten million copies EA shipped, it would have been more surprising if Battlefield 3 didn't take the top-spot of this week's UK sales charts
The heavily anticipated DICE developed shooter has toppled last week's winner, Batman: Arkham City, to claim the number one spot in a largely familiar top-ten. Activision's Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure continued its assault up the chart, jumping from..
The release of Sonic Generations has ushered many disbelieving gamers into an admission: Sonic games can be good
The upcoming title's combination of throw-back Sonic The Hedgehog gameplay and modern three-dimensional action has proven a hit with gamers ever since SEGA announced the move. But while Sonic Generations is set to become one of the best selling titles in the blue blur's history, SEGA has..
We should probably apologise
That headline contained a pun so awful it could probably wipe out humanity through a chorus of collective groans. Seeing as we're still here, writing this story, we're going to guess that we got away with it. On topic: after lowing the game's commercial expectations earlier in the week, Capcom has attached a March 20th North American release date to its Slant Six..
Capcom's announced that its bonkers buddha brawler, Asura's Wrath, is set to drop into the United States on February 21st
There's no date for the European release, but it expect it during the same week. Bizarre Japanese brawlers have become something of a rarity this generation, so enjoy Asura's Wrath while you can. We're going to take a wild guess and predict you won't see another.
Perhaps picking up on some distress within the Resident Evil community, Capcom has lowered expectations for its Slant Six developed squad-based shooter, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
The Japanese publisher originally predicted the game would shift 2.5 million units. Six months later it reckons only 2 million. The game's due out next year. Apparently.
The British arm of the Official PlayStation Magazine is teasing something big
And stealthy. In fact editor Ben Wilson can't seem to hold his excitement about the feature, closing his editor's note with the comments: "I promise you that next month is an equally significant issue in our history. I desperately want to say more, but really mustnt. Other than this: turn to page 81 for a stealthy..
Yes, a new Bond game
It's curious that Activision's decided to release GoldenEye 007: Reloaded so close to Modern Warfare 3, but we're not going to complain. We're always pumped for more 007, and subsequently can't wait to get our hands on this revamped version of last year's Nintendo Wii reboot. It's GoldenEye. What's not to be pumped about? The game's out next week.
Traditionally Naughty Dog has introduced a new franchise for each console generation and produced three main-line titles in that series
Theoretically, that should mean Nathan Drake's adventuring is done with the release of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. Potentially, but Naughty Dog's Justin Richmond has told the Official PlayStation Magazine that Naughty Dog will continue making Uncharted for as..
Y'know, back in 2007 when the original Assassin's Creed got criticised for having no variety, Ubisoft must have taken it really hard
Every subsequent Assassin's Creed game has been packed with objectives, markers and things to do. Why stop when you're winning? No matter how much this latest Assassin's Creed trailer attempts to dress things up, it's pretty clear that the latest iteration of the game..
Those of you that have been keeping a close eye on the PlayStation Store recently will have noticed a slew of games under the 'Arkedo' label
Originally released for XBOX 360 and then ported to the PlayStation 3 by Sanuk Games, these super simple, retro flavoured indie titles gave Arkedo their excellent reputation. They've spent the past nine months...
Battlefield 3 is now available in the UK, after launching earlier in the week in North America
In order to celebrate the game's release, EA figured it was appropriate to drum up some publicity. So it sent some tanks and an APC into the centre of London. We hope you're not missing the connection. (Just in case: Battlefield 3 is a military game and tanks are military vehi--oh you do get it? Why..
Many fighting fans have been clamouring for a new DarkStalkers title for years
And while Capcom might not be willing to invest in a completely new title in the series, it sure as heck won't pass up on earning some additional revenue from an old version. Hence the ESRB has revealed the imminent release of PSone title, DarkStalkers: The Night Warrior...
What's so special about Michael? We're all PlayStation fans here, we should all be honoured in a commercial of our own
It seems Sony agrees, and has decided to dedicate a commercial to each and every one of us. All you need do is head over to PlayStation's official Facebook page, where platform mascot Kevin Butler will induct you into the Hall Of Play. Great times, readers. Great times.
After some unfortunate delays, Sony Online Entertainment has at last attached a date to the European release of PayDay: The Heist. The first-person co-operative rob 'em up is due out next week on the PlayStation Store. That's November 2nd if you want an exact date to mark on your calendar. SOE apologised for the delay and concluded that it "cant wait for you guys to get your hands on..
The build-up to Saints Row: The Third has been ridiculous
But it's all been manageable. While we might frown at the appearance of a hostile Hot-Dog wielding an enormous pink dildo as a weapon, we can understand it. But this latest live-action trailer... Well, yeah. Erm.
Sony Online Entertainment's slapped a big November 1st date on DC Universe Online's transition to free-to-play
Those curious about the game will be able to experience it for free from said date. Anyone that spends more than $5 on content (or has done previously) will see their account upgraded to include an extra set of perks. Those hooked on the...
When it comes to the console wars, worldwide sales are nearly always a point of contention
Sony's PlayStation 3 often comes off second-best in regions such as North America and the UK. Conversely, the PlayStation 3 does much more spectacular numbers in parts of continental Europe and Japan. Unfortunately, we're not often privy to those numbers, particularly in Europe. So the figures are discounted..
Back before the PlayStation Network went down Dark Energy Digital promised us a PlayStation 3 release of its former XBOX 360 exclusive Hydrophobia Prophecy
Having been hit by poor critical reception, Dark Energy's frequently gone back to lick its wounds and has stayed faithful to its ambitious water-driven adventure game concept, promising reams of...
How much "French-ness" can you tolerate this morning? If your threshold is low, then we recommend returning to this trailer when it's more tolerable
Because this Rayman Origins trailer is ultimately very exciting, you just have to fight through all the "French-ness" to get to the exciting part. Seriously though, the game looks ace.
It's not often that we get to post a new video pertaining to BioShock Infinite
While the hotly anticipated first-person adventure game is firmly on everybody's radar, it's always seemed a long way off. But no more — with many of this year's big Holiday releases out of the picture, Infinite is due its time in the spotlight. And that starts today with an interview of the game's two most important..
Well, it's not Call Of Duty numbers
But bloody nora, Battlefield 3's early sales figures are still mightily impressive all the same. EA has announced at the company's Q2 sales briefing that it has shipped 10 million copies of Battlefield 3 (which launched this week in North America and Europe). The company as a whole was bolstered by strong sales in its sports sector — with the likes of FIFA and..
Sonic The Hedgehog, as a video game series, has a long and storied history
Spanning more than 20 years, and featuring in massive number of games, the character has been a favourite of video game fans for years. But his latest outing in Sonic Generations is surprisingly the most pre-ordered title in the franchise's history. There's probably two reasons for that. The video game industry today is much..
We probably sound like something of a worn out record when discussing Mass Effect 3's multiplayer component, so we're now going to reserve judgement until we actually play it
While we've been heavily critical of Mass Effect's status as a shooter in the past, we'll refrain further comment until we actually play the latest entry. Because, honestly, being super cynical about video games is one of the..
BioShock creator Ken Levine has no doubts about who wears the trousers at Irrational Games
Chatting with Joystiq, the legendary developer revealed that BioShock Infinite is most definitely his game. This is my game, he said, "I love the fact that we sit down and chat with each other but at the end of the day this things got to be my decision. We wondered why Irrational never..
Ubisoft's announced it's bringing popular iOS God game, Babel Rising, to the PlayStation Network
The next-gen version of the touch-based title sees players assuming to role of God, attempting to stop a group of builders from correctly constructed a tower. While the PlayStation 3 is unable to replicate the original title's touch controls, Ubisoft has...
Every year, Activision somehow manages to add another reason to keep you levelling up your character in Call Of Duty
One of this year's biggest hooks in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is Weapon Proficiencies, which essentially allows you to collect and earn "mini-perks" for your weapons. Proficiencies allow you to improve your performance with small incentives, such as reduced kick or..
Chances are you never played Techland's Nail'd
We did. It was actually pretty alright. The game had an extreme sports edge to it which meant you spent more time flying through the air than actually driving on the ground. We never thought we'd see a sequel to Nail'd, and to be honest we probably still won't. But that's not stopped Ubisoft from commissioning the European developer to produce a..
Yesterday we posted a report from XBOX World magazine
We should have known better there and then. The report suggested that Just Cause 3 was in development, and due for release next year.
