Will span multiple Star Wars eras
Microsoft's saving grace during a lacklustre E3 was their most casual title
Dance Central, the Kinect only groove game, has been getting rave reviews from those who checked it out during the course of E3. And it could be coming to the PlayStation 3. That's according to a report posted by Kotaku, who claim that Harmonix are considering using the PlayStation Move to bring the dance 'em up to the PS3..
Industry analyst Michael Pachter has exclaimed that Criterion's Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is the game that gave him his "oh my God" moment at this year's E3
He told CVG: "Although I was most impressed with shooter games [at E3], there were a remarkable number of high-quality titles. I think that consumers are going to split a much bigger pot of dollars among more games, so it's hard to..
Are you loving the sound of vuvuzelas or detesting them? FIFA 11's got you covered either way
One of the game's newest features will allow you to tweak custom audio settings. Users will be able to upload sound clips — "Fivvvve Cantonas" — and mix them into the stadium ambience in accordance to events in the match. Which is basically amazing.
One of the most surprising elements of Sony's E3 press conference yesterday, was the enthusiasm with which they pushed multiplatform titles
A move which has long been considered Microsoft's forte, has seemingly been adopted by the upper-Gods at Sony, who offered EA a whole sub-segment of the press conference. From that we got two pretty huge announcements for PlayStation 3 owners - that both Dead..
Sony highlighted their relationship with EA pretty hard during their press conference today, revealing that the PlayStation 3 version of Dead Space 2 would come packed with a copy of Dead Space: Extraction, exclusively on the PlayStation 3
The Wii title will be updated for the PlayStation 3 and will include PlayStation Move controls to match the Wii experience. It basically makes the PS3 SKU of the..
Epic and People Can Fly's ostentatious shooter, Bulletstorm, is due to hit US shelves on February 22nd, 2011, Epic's Cliff Bleszinskis just announced
VG247's got a batch of new screens for you to drool over. The game's big hook is its focus on stylish, kills. It's more "outrageous fun" than "gritty seriousness" — if you get what we mean.
Sorry, we switched off during Peter Moore's presentation of EA Sports MMA during EA's press conference last night
Does it look dull? Hell yeah it looks dull. But that's only because we're not the intended audience. Sure we like the UFC games — they're fine. But they don't exactly fill us with blistering excitement. For those that care: EA Sports MMA is coming out October 19th on the PlayStation..
EA confirmed during their press conference last night that their upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot would be getting a multiplayer beta starting June 21st
Players will get access to two maps and will be playable on the PlayStation 3. EA also revealed a new rewards system for fans of shooter games — the "Gun Club" will provide members with benefits including in-game content, early access to..
So, in what's totally not a knee-jerk reaction to the Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Vietnam setting, EA's announced a new expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 which takes players to - you guessed it - Vietnam
We'll update you with details as soon as we get them. EA's also announced a new "Gun Club" service, designed to reward those who...
Alongside a deeply impressive gameplay demo for Dead Space 2, EA's just announced that the survival horror title will launch on January 25th
The gameplay looks familiar, so no need to worry about EA going off on a complete tangent with this one. It looks awesome. We'll be finding out more about Dead Space 2 during Sony's E3 press conference tomorrow.
Criterion's just announced that their Need For Speed game, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit will launch November 16th with a host of community features, and a return to the franchise's heritage
EA's released a new developer video which highlights FIFA 11's new Personality+ features
The new features' purpose is to give variation between players of different skills, and the tech demos EA have to show off are very impressive. One example shows a player of low skill turning on the ball and scuffing his shot into the ground, where a more skillful player is able to turn and volley the ball into..
Crytek's just revealed that Crysis 2 will be one of the first multiplatform titles to be playable in 3D
The game will join Killzone 3, amongst the ranks of the first FPS titles to support the television industry's latest push. "The success of 3-D movies like Avatar and the introduction of 3-D TVs from the hardware manufacturers tells us that this is the next big movement in entertainment,..
Klei Entertainment's upcoming PSN beat 'em up, Shank, is looking every inch the high-profile downloadable
It's unique art-style, ostentatious humour and fantastic animation really have our interest piqued. It kinda looks like a 2D Devil May Cry, don't you think? Consider us stoked.
Eagle-eyed users over at TheSixthAxis have spotted a little glimpse of Criterion's new Need For Speed title in GTTV's all access preview show
The split-second EA booth tease reveals Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, the as-of-yet unannounced franchise update from Criterion - the dude's who usually make the Burnout games. No other details have been revealed yet, but you can bet you're life they are..
Watching this pre-E3 trailer of Dead Space 2 reminded us of a couple of things
Numero uno; we still think the original Dead Space was an absolute masterpiece. Numero dos; we can't wait to shoot the limbs off necromorphs all over again. To be fair, this Dead Space 2 trailer doesn't really show you anything you couldn't have experienced in the original game. But in some ways, that's the beauty of..
There are guns and fancy visual effects, therefore it must be Crysis 2, right? Here's your first look at Crytek's long-hyped first-person shooter which is looking
.. alright. Perhaps this is a bad selection of footage, but it all looks like rather average run-of-the-mill console shooter stuff to us, with the exception of a few standout moments (like where that building collapses, that's..
Our favourite thing about E3 - countdown teaser websites. Not! Next up Criterion, who are teasing their totally-secret-totally-not-a-new-Need-For-Speed-game Need For Speed game. The countdown ends just as EA's press conference takes off. Say, that's convenient isn't it? Watch the clock tick here. Sigh.
That USA Today video we posted yesterday was just a taster for today's deluge of information, as the Rock Band 3 embargo has finally lifted revealing details of real Fender six-strings and The Cure
That's right, The Cure. We were going to poo-poo all over this Rock Band 3 trailer because, honestly, we couldn't care less about it. But then "Just Like Heaven" came on, and we realised..
EA's Bright Lights studio may be working on the Harry Potter games at present, but they've also got another title in the pipeline -- a PSN release called Spare Parts
The game's based around the concept of robots working together to rebuild their space-ship. The game's a co-operative "online action adventure" title, where players will...
When was the last time you saw a game get moved forward? Yeah, long time ago right
Games only ever get delayed, they never get pushed forward. Well, except for Crysis 2 that is. EA's just announced that they're moving the game forward into the Autumn, as opposed to the previously announced end-of-year date. Woohoo. The news comes via a trade press advert in the latest issue of MCV. Word. If the..
With E3 mere days away now, the industry's anticipation is nearing fever-pitch
With pretty high stakes all around for the platform holders, it can be easy to over-look the actual core of the event in anticipation of megaton announcements and new hardware — that's the games. As we continue our E3 build-up, we list our five most anticipated PlayStation games of the show. In order to appear on this..
If you've been following us on Twitter, you'll know we've had some pretty strong predictions about Rock Band 3
We totally got the keyboard bit right. We totally got the 25 key bit right. Sadly, we were off the mark when we said the game would have light-up keys, but we were pretty close right? USA Today's just put up a preview for the game which we've embedded above. To be honest, it's Rock..
FIFA games are really, really good
Seriously, ever since FIFA 08 (roughly), EA Sports have been on a roll with the franchise. The thing is, FIFA screenshots are really, really boring. This first screen from FIFA 11 is no exception. It's Chelsea vs. Arsenal. It's John Terry. Wooohooo.
Confirmation indeed that ex-Infinity Ward employees Jason West and Vince Zampella work fast
The duo, who were sacked by Activision just a few months ago, are now teasing some form of status update at next week's E3 showdown. They'll probably show-up at the EA press conference, seeing as that's the publisher they are currently in partnership with. The news comes via a F
It's apt that the debut trailer for the console version of The Sims 3 is being hosted on MTV
It fits right in. Now we have no real problem with "scene", teeny-bop humour and stuff - but this is a step too far for our tastes. It's like, it's trying so hard to be hip, new and cool that it comes across old and tired. Just show us the game next time.
Publishers wonder why Wii games don't sell very well
Presumably because they're considered as "downloadable quality" titles elsewhere. Haha - but Nintendo's "loss" (it's not really a loss is it, but it's a good link phrase) is our gain. Or something. That's right - those Dead Space: Extraction rumours are back. Sounds like the...
We told you Geoff Keighley was back in the game didn't we? He's just sent out a Tweet regarding the reveal of Dead Space 2's first gameplay footage next week in GameTrailers' pre-E3 special
Another big game in our pre-e3 special next Fri First real hd gameplay footage from Dead Space 2. The show will also have the first gameplay footage of Killzone 3, amongst presumably a few others..
EA and Warner Bros
have announced today that the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows video game will follow the movie's structure of being divided into two parts. The first part will release this Autumn. The final Harry Potter adventure has given us the opportunity to make a darker and more action-oriented game than we have before, says Jonathan Bunney, VP of production at EA Bright Light..
Given our certainty earlier this week that Rock Band 3 would feature some form of light-up keyboard, a report from Ars Technica sounds kind of disappointing
They're claiming that Rock Band 3 will feature a keytar. A keytar? Come on that's lame. Ars are all speculating that a new "Pro" mode will be included "that will require proper technique, and may lead to actual skills on guitar..
Well it's happened
It's been on the cards for, well, basically forever. Insomniac Games has finally announced that they're ready to try out multiplatform development. Insomniac's announced today that they are jumping into bed with the EA Partners programme (essentially a publishing deal that allows Insomniac to keep the rights to whatever games they create) and are developing a "brand new..
If you have any interest in Green Day then you've probably checked out the demo for Green Day: Rock Band
We're kind of hoping your interest in Green Day spans the Dookie-era and, well, only the Dookie-era. Anyway, irrelevance. What's important is the teaser image at the end of the Green Day: Rock Band demo. It shows teaser images of guitars, bass, vocals, drums and... keyboards — followed by a..
What could Rock Band 3 do that's going to be so radically different? It's not E3 yet so we can't actually say, but Harmonix wants you to know that whatever they do, it'll be the "next big leap in music gaming"
Appropriately named Dan Teasdale has blogged that "you'll be surprised just how big this game is". Apparently it's going to be a "big step forward". Going on past..
Crytek's been hyping Crysis 2 for a while now
They claim that they're going to set the graphical benchmark of all three consoles the game's due to release on. From the Playstation 3's perspective - it's some challenge to take on Sony's own in-house studios. But man - these screens do look pretty. We're assuming they're running on a super-powerful PC rig, but if Crytek can get the visuals anywhere..
Thank goodness for EA, Epic Games and People Can Fly, who are about to embark on the first non-super gritty military shooter in what seems like ages
Bulletstorm - a mish-mash of colours, ridiculous guns and a "skill kills" - looks set to bring actual genuine brainless fun back to the FPS genre. And we welcome that with open arms. Boom!
EA's announced today that they are adding a four-player online co-op mode to their hit shooter, Battlefield: Bad Company 2
The mode's called "Onslaught". Apparently it'll be playable on four maps - Valparaiso, Atacama Desert, Isla Inocentes, and Nelson Bay - with each being redesigned with new lighting, time of day and vehicles. Apparently each map will have a different gameplay focus. No..
EA bigwigs confirmed a list of software due to be shown at this year's E3 event last night, claiming that one big "marquee" title would be shown in 3D
Seeing as how the Playstation 3 is the only system set to support 3D this year (if you discount Nintendo's new 3DS anyway) we can't imagine what EA has to show - but we're secretly keeping our fingers...
Bye used game sales
Seriously: bye. EA's just announced that they're set to introduce an "Online Pass" that includes access to "online services, features, and bonus content" with every new EA Sports game starting Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11. If you buy a copy of the game where the online pass has already been redeemed (i.e. you bought the game used), well guess what? EA are going to..
This year's E3 feels bigger than any we've ever known
With the longest console lifespan ever predicted, the stakes are high for Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo - all of whom will be competing for the strongest software and peripheral line-up that will ensure the extension of their system's cycle. It's also big for the third-parties, with Activision, EA, Capcom and THQ all expecting to show multiple..
Did you ever wish you could play Monopoly in high-definition? We do all the time
And now we're going to be able to thanks to Monopoly Streets. The EA release aims to transform the classic board-game into a dynamic gameworld, representative of the economic status of your properties. Each player will also have a headquarters that grows and crumbles in accordance to the player's fortunes. If you're..
Not only does this latest Medal Of Honor trailer feature people jumping out of helicopter things, it also features heart-felt communication between a working soldier and his Missus
Altogether now: aww. Presumably the heart-felt message was recorded moments before shooting people in the face. Because, y'know, that's just what video games are like innit.
How would you like to play a Call Of Duty game that's not got Call Of Duty on the box? No - not Respawn Entertainment's new project, nor the half-hearted Modern Warfare 2 (which totally had Call Of Duty on the box)
We're talking about EA's Medal Of Honor reboot, which couldn't look more like a Call Of Duty game if it ran out into the street naked screaming: "I'm a Call Of Duty game."..
Let's cut to the chase shall we - MySims: Sky Heroes is a casual air-combat game where your MySim (think a Nintendo Mii) takes flight against the evil Morcubus and his army
Fight well and your characters fame rises, allowing you to buy (in digital terms) a host of presumably whimsical upgrades for your wings. The game'll feature splitscreen online multiplayer, in both co-op and competitive game..
Frank Gibeau, president of the EA Games label, and Greg Goodrich have come out to say that the recent firings of Jason West and Vince Zampella created an opportunity that the company just couldn't pass up on
But there's no hard feelings between the EA duo and competition over at Activision. In fact in the very same interview the EA pair go on to say they wish Bungie all the best in their new..
Australia's ratings board, the OFLC, has filed a rating for an upcoming EA title - known only as the mysterious "Project Red"
Finger pointing suggests this might be Swedish studio Starbreeze's attempt at rebooting the old Bullfrog franchise Syndicate, but details are groggy. All we know is that Project Red will probably appear at E3 in some capacity. Yes, we'd put money on it in fact.
These first shots of EA, Epic and People Can Fly's Bulletstorm show less the gritty, war torn environments you might have expected, and more tropical locations with ridiculous violence
Needless to say they look rather good. Check out the screens over at Joystiq and watch your excitement soar by, ooh, 100%.
Still hyped over yesterday's phenomenal Dead Space 2 reveal? Yeah - us too
Well prepare to get stoked all over again - as EA's released a slew of artwork pertaining to the new horror release. You can check out the moody imagery courtesy of Kotaku.
IGN's pulled out their unitology scrolls and sat down to some serious work decoding the latest Dead Space 2 trailer
Hidden messages include "Reborn as one 614" - perhaps hinting at EA's E3 conference scheduled for June 14th. Less interesting are the words "Key", "Konverge" and "Altman", which tend to have no real meaning to speak of yet - though the name..
It might have leaked last night, but EA's just revealed the official trailer for the upcoming Dead Space 2, erm, officially
That's indeed correct folks, the video short, entitled "Dementia", features dead people, necromorphs and protagonist Isaac's actual face. Awesome. Let us know what you think.
If you wanted to know what Isaac Clarke looks like in Dead Space 2 then - voila
Now you know. Joystiq captured the shot of the now toughened-up protagonist via a Dead Space 2 trailer that somehow leaked onto YouTube a day early. The trailer is in fact due to go live officially today - so if you want to see it you should probably tune in to PushSquare today. We didn't see the trailer while it was..
As was already promised, EA's confirmed that The Sims 3 is indeed in development for the Playstation 3 and is due on the system in time for the end-of-year holidays
The console version of the PC game will include new features such as "Karma Powers" which determine whether your Sim can "get lucky" or, on the flipside, suffer an "epic fail". The PS3 version of the game..
Look, we're British
We're sorry. When someone says football we think of the sport where you, y'know, play with your feet. Not that other game people call football that's absolutely not football. Take the cover for Madden 11, which features Drew Brees (apparently). It shows the man holding a ball in his hand. Football. Mmmhm. We wanted to tell you more about the cover of Madden 11, but Joystiq seems..
Hats-off to Crytek
Rather than going for platform-parity (and essentially gimping everyone), they are trying to squeeze every inch of performance out of each of the three platforms their upcoming shooter Crysis 2 is to be released on. And that means the company has admitted that they are getting "slightly more performance" out of the Playstation 3 version of the game. "We haven't..
Infinity Ward is dead at this point
Seriously, if you're still clinging onto that Call Of Duty and Modern Warfare brand, you may aswell stop. That's not to undermine Treyarch's efforts. They're a good studio that make good games. It's just that Infinity Ward are were the life-blood of the franchise. But that's studio's now all but dead. With gaffers Vince Zampella and Jason West over at EA's..
It's awesome when a franchise becomes so big that it earns its own spin-off novel
Resident Evil has a whole line of novels dedicated to the escapades of Jill and Chris Valentine. And now Dead Space is about to get the same treatment. Written by B. K. Evenson, and published by Tor Books - Dead Space: Martyr follows the story of Michael Altman, the geophysicist who first discovers, erm, unusual..
It's probably impossible to make a commercial flop when you've got an official license adorning the package of your product
Particularly when it's a game based on the massive event that is the World Cup. But EA's turned over a new leaf in recent years, taking a new found interest in the quality of the products they release. As such, the FIFA video games have gone from licensed mess, to market..
If you read PushSquare yesterday you'd know that the fired Infinity Ward gaffers, Vince Zampella and Jason West, have formed a new studio with EA under the guise Respawn Entertainment
Industry analyst Michael Pachter reckons this is a huge "screw you" to Activision. This is the ultimate screw-you to Activision and the ultimate screw-you to EA, said Michael Pachter, who remembers..
A few rumours circulating immediately after the announcement of Zampella and West's return to EA earlier today suggested that the duo's new studio, Respawn Entertainment, might be about to take control of either the Battlefield or Medal Of Honor franchises
That's absolutely not true according to EA Games boss Frank Gibeau. Speaking with Kotaku, the EA man said that the ex-Infinity Ward staffers are..
EA's just sent us word of the upcoming People Can Fly and Epic Games title Bulletstorm
The game was sort of revealed over the weekend via a GameInformer cover, but now you can consider the PS3 title official. People Can Fly has created a wildly fun first-person shooter that looks gorgeous running on the latest Unreal Engine 3 technology, and the skillshot system is a welcome..
Remember those fired Infinity Ward staffers Vince Zampella and Jason West? Y'know, the ones who practically created the Call Of Duty franchise
Yeah, erm, they just signed a new publishing deal with EA. Their new studio's named Respawn Entertainment. The new studio will retain full control over the..
Coming from EA, Epic Games and the folks over at People Can Fly - Bulletstorm is a new, ambitious first-person shooter heading to the Playstation 3
The game's been teased by various outlets for some time now, but it's finally been revealed on the latest cover of US mag GameInformer. The game's all about Grayson Hunt, the former leader of a black-ops team called Dead Echo. Time's been rough on Hunt,..
Valve have long whined about Sony's Playstation 3
We have the articles to prove it. But one magazine cover, PSM3, reckons their latest release Portal 2 is set to finally make the jump. The cover of the magazine hints at the release of Portal 2, alongside the announcement of F.E.A.R. 3. Valve announced the game as a PC and XBOX 360 title a few weeks back. Don't hold your breath over this.
The original Crysis is largely considered the best looking PC video game of all time
Those with a high-powered rig are able to squeeze unbelievable visuals out of the game. In fact - whisper it - if it weren't for Crysis' amazing visuals, no one would much care for the shooter. So in making the move to consoles with Crysis 2, developers Crytek want to ensure they leave the likes of Uncharted 2:..
Ready you get your World Cup on? Of course you are
.. There's what, two or three months to go? E3, World Cup and Summer? It's going to be the best ever, yo. If you really want to speed up time to the start of June, you might want to get into the World Cup spirit a little early, y grabbing the demo for FIFA World Cup 2010 which is due on the PSN tomorrow. The demo'll feature Italy vs. Spain only..
Here's a new way of making your debut - put it on the big-screen at New York's Times Square
That's exactly what Crytek's done with their upcoming shooter Crysis 2. The footage doesn't really reveal much: people are missing, aliens have invaded, New York's ruined, there are people in big suits. Still. What did you expect? Gameplay? Pssht.
Naughty Dog set the benchmark with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Sony Santa Monica raised the benchmark with God Of War III. Now Crytek want to take the console visuals crown with Crysis 2. Were aiming to set the graphical benchmark, executive producer Nathan Camarillo told British Playstation magazine, PSM3. Why would anyone not want to play a game with the best graphics they have ever..
Sometimes game demos can practically sell a game all on their own
Sometimes game demos can keep a game on the shelf. It's all a matter of doing it right. The original Dead Space did it wrong. It failed convey the ethos of the game, and subsequently put some people off. Executive producer at Visceral Games Steve Papoutsis is all to aware of that, and...
The crowd greet the 15-second snippet of Dead Space 2's gameplay with an "ooooooh-WHOA AWESOME", so it must be good, right? Duh
The footage shows protagonist Isaac Clarke making his way through a rickety train, before being forced to use some thrusters on his suit to make his way into the next compartment. The snippet's a little Iron Man, so it'll be interesting to see how Visceral Games maintain..
SEGA's Yakuza 4 has topped the Japanese software charts for this week, shifting a hearty 384,000 copies
The numbers are a little lower than those of Yakuza 3, but still extremely respectable. Elsewhere, the God Of War Collection managed to place 13th in the Japanese software charts this week, with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 not far behind it in 15th.
We've never watched MMA in our life, but we're perfectly aware it's a hot topic across the 'States right now
Hence the showdown between THQ's UFC Undisputed franchise and EA Sports', erm, EA Sports MMA. Much of this has caused a war of words regarding which "talent" signs up to EA's game. People that know more about this stuff than we do would probably be interested to know that Joachim..
Bioware's put a countdown on their website
It counts down to sometime on Monday. Why are we telling you about this? Well, because we kinda hope Bioware are finally going to man up and release the first two Mass Effect games for PS3. It seems ludicrous not to, right? Meh... Feel free to flame us if this turns out to be something totally bollocks.
Stop me if you've heard this one before: a military, multiplayer shooter has sold a ton of copies in Europe and the US
That's right: EA's Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has mustered sales of over 2.3 million over the last couple of weeks. Interestingly, aswell as the hard sales figures, EA has provided some more light-hearted facts pertaining to the game's success, such as 81 billion points racked up..
EA has announced that the third iteration of their skateboarding game Skate 3 will launch in May

The exec told GameRant that gamer's can expect a big reveal at this year's E3:Unfortunately I cant say anything about Rock Band 3 at this point except that its coming this fall and its a big step forward for Rock Band, said Rigopulos. This has been a..
Oh look - it's a new trailer for Medal Of Honor
It features guns, shooting and some American-dude talking about war and stuff. It looks a lot like Call Of Duty. Which is actually a good thing we suppose. Though we kind of wish someone would make a shooter about big monsters and stuff instead of military men. Oh well.
EA's released some new screenshots for their Medal Of Honor reboot which you can catch over at Joystiq
We'd love to offer some insightful commentary, but they look exactly like you'd expect them to. It's Medal Of Honor in a post-Call Of Duty era.
Is it wrong that we're stoked for EA Sports Active 2
0</a>? EA Sports' foray into the fitness field was previously a Wii-exclusive, but the company have announced today that the game will hit Playstation 3 with a few neat little peripherals to boot. The game will launch with two motion sensors and a heartbeat monitor (amazing, right?) when it launches in the Fall. "Players" will be..
Harmonix's confirmed that they'll release the anticipated sequel to Rock Band 3 this year
Speaking on their Facebook page, the company wrote:Harmonix is developing Rock Band 3 for worldwide release this holiday season!

Stocks in Tiger Woods may have dropped in recent months, but golf video games with well implemented motion controls have become no less fun
Thus, it's extremely exciting to hear that Tiger Woods 11 will include support for Sony's upcoming Playstation Motion Controller to "give gamers an authentic interactive swing experience". There aren't any concrete details on the implementation yet,..
EA's announced that they will publish "Project Mercury" - an RPG set in the Copernicus universe by R

Stuart Black, the man behind the PS2's excellent Black and upcoming PS3 shooter Bodycount, has revealed that Black 2 was in development at Criterion
The head told Gamespot that the game was shelved after the team lost their "direction".I certainly did some preliminary pre-production work on Black 2 once we finished Black, the first three or four months. I moved on quite quickly after..
What to say about FIFA World Cup 2010 - it's a FIFA game designed to cash-in on this year's World Cup
The difference being - FIFA games are actually properly amazing these days, suggesting even if it's only a small enhancement over FIFA 10, it's still going to be really fun. Plus this trailer has amazing music. Makes us feel all summery, despite the freezing temperatures outside.
One of the best things about the original Dead Space were the moments when you died
Usually, it's extremely frustrating when you die in a video game because it's a condition of failure. But in Dead Space, you actually got a grotesque reward for your failure - a clever little cut-scene that varied depending on the enemy showing Isaac get dismembered and pulled to pieces. One for the sadists. With..
You may have heard that Stuart Black, the dude that created PS2 shooter Black, is now working with Codemasters on a new FPS IP
Indeed, the likelihood is that Codemasters' latest will be a spiritual successor to the popular Black. And the dude has fire in his belly, as he's told OXM he's bored of current shooters:"There's a lot of cover-based shooters out at the moment," he told OXM..
Perhaps corroborating rumours we heard earlier this month, Visceral Games has announced they are working on PSN titles alongside their big-box release Dead Space 2
Just like the packaged goods space and the big AAA space, comes down to quality and innovation and being able to bring something thats interesting to the gamer, Visceral Games'...
EA has announced that between the Playstation Network and XBOX Live, over 3
5 million people have downloaded and tried out the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 demo. Which indeed bodes well for the DICE developed title which is set to launch next month. EA will hope they can replicate a degree of Modern Warfare 2's success.
If you want value for money, you should probably buy Burnout Paradise
Either that, or wait a little while for the PSN release of the Burnout Paradise Complete Edition which is heading to the PSN "soon". There's no word on pricing yet, but TheSixthAxis has the full feature list. Breathe-in. Burnout Paradise Full Game with all free updates including Paradise Bikes and a full day/night..
At last year's E3, Microsoft announced they would release "All You Need Is Love" for The Beatles: Rock Band exclusively on the XBOX platform
Well, lo-and-behold, that exclusivity is totally over, and the song is due to be released on the PSN from March 4th for £0.99.
EA announced at their financial call last night that all of the company's titles released in fiscal 2011 will feature either online multiplayer or downloadable content
Every one. Considering Dante's Inferno will let you pay for some extra "souls" (which you totally earn from killing enemies in the game anyway), we're not surprised EA are making this move. If just 25 owners of the game..
EA has really dropped a bomb of information at the moment
We don't know if we can keep up. The latest little snippet? Spore is coming to consoles in Q1 2011. There are no real details on the console versions yet. The announcement comes after The Sims 3 was confirmed for consoles this Holiday. There are a ton of other tentative EA release dates through here, too.
EA dropped some big names at their financial call last night, detailing the planned release windows for a host of killer franchises over the next 12 months or so
