Expect customisation and cop chases
Surprise: there's going to be a new FIFA game this September
EA Sports has announced that the multi-million selling follow-up in the FIFA franchsie, FIFA 12, will launch on September 27th and September 30th on PS3. Still no word on the PlayStation Vita version, but we suspect that will get announced later in the year.
Shadows Of The Damned is getting rave reviews from all corners of the Internet
The problem is: no-one knows that the game is coming out. The reviews aren't unexpected — this is a game from Suda 51, Shinji Mikami and Akira Yamaoka after all — but it's disappointing to see such a collaboration of super-creative minds slipping under the radar so badly. In case you didn't know, the game's out today..
To the people that thought Battlefield 3 was going to look as good on the PlayStation 3 as on the PC: you're mad
Literally clinically insane. (Probably.) The fracas appears to revolve around two issues: resolution and frame-rate. Battlefield 3 runs at 30 frames-per-second with a resolution of 720p on PlayStation 3. On a high-end PC, the game can push 60FPS at 1080p. People were genuinely asking..
In this new Shadows Of The Damned developer diary, Akira Yamaoka and Suda 51 make silly faces while being dubbed by ridiculous voices
We speak for everyone when we say: "day one".</em>
Rarely does a month pass in which there's not a new rumour about Mass Effect 3 getting a multiplayer component
Multiplayer is certainly not what we want out of the franchise, but it would tick a few boxes for publisher EA. Eurogamer's the latest publication to tease some kind of online functionality for Bioware's space-opera, rumouring that the game will have a standalone four-player co-op mode..
We know virtually nothing about Grasshopper's Shadows Of The Damned, but we've had the game preordered for months now. How much more do you need to know beyond "Shinji Mikami" and "Suda51"? The game's even been scored by ex-Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka. Sure, we would have preferred the game to take a more psychological horror direction than the grindhouse style..
EA Sports does not see the value of adding PlayStation Move support to future FIFA games
Despite the label announcing Kinect support for all future titles — with absolutely nothing to show, we might add — the FIFA team will not be adding functionality for Sony's motion controller into its premium football franchise. At least not for now, anyway. "We have not focused on PS Move for FIFA,..
EA Games label president Frank Gibeau has described Respawn Games' new title as a "sci-fi shooter"
The publisher also confirmed plans to rotate its military shooter series' annually, with Medal Of Honor and Battlefield releasing on alternative years. In general were going to continue to follow our rotation strategy of giving studios a full two-year cycle to get a game built and polished to..
The big hook for Need For Speed: The Run is the fact that you can get out of your car
It's not exactly a feature Need For Speed fans have been crying out for, and it looked shoddy in the game's E3 demonstration. Settling somewhere in-between Heavy Rain and last year's Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, The Run is a cinematic racing game behind-the-wheel, but a Dragon's Lair impersonator on-foot. To..
There's a lot of unwarranted vitriol being thrown at Insomniac Games over its new multiplatform project
From where we're sitting, it's unfair. Insomniac has been one of the strongest supporters of the PlayStation platform for years, and none of that goodwill should evaporate just because it's going to release a game on the XBOX 360. After all, let's not forget Insomniac's new game is coming to the..
As part of a massive FIFA 12 blow-out during EA's E3 press conference this evening, EA Sports has revealed "Football Club" for FIFA 12
Touted as a new way for players to connect, Football Club bridges the gap between the real-world sport and the video game. The millions of fans playing FIFA online have shown us there is a constant appetite for a deep connected experience, driven by a love of..
There's the charm of Ratchet & Clank mixed in with the grit of Resistance in Insomniac's first EA Games published project
Entitled Overstrike, the c0-op based title looks like a tongue-in-cheek take on the shooter genre — with chunky, cartoony characters teaming up in a colourful world. The game's reveal — shown moments ago at EA's E3 press conference — didn't include any gameplay, but..
Ouch: take that Activision
After taking a moment to gloat over Call Of Duty: Elite, EA has slapped an October 25th release date on Battlefield 3. That's a couple of weeks ahead of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's November 8th street date. Accompanied by a stunning gameplay demo, EA also revealed that Battlefield 3 will get a multi-platform beta in September. Those that purchased copies of Medal Of..
There's going to be big boss fights, turret sequences and heavy guitar riffs in Shepard's struggle for mankind -- this Mass Effect 3 trailer proves as much
The action heavy trailer features plenty of gameplay footage and also reveals a March 6th release date for the game. Definitely looks like Bioware's looking to take the franchise in more action oriented direction this time. Here's hoping the..
It still doesn't feel like E3 is happening
Not properly. Tomorrow (June 6th) is arguably the biggest day in the PlayStation calendar, with Sony and others preparing to showcase their entire video game lineup for the coming year. Expects twists, turns, surprises and betrayals; it just wouldn't be E3 without them. EA's set to get the party started at...
Sounds like legendary PlayStation developer Insomniac Games has been keeping itself busy
Not content with pushing out Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One this Fall, the developer has also been hard at work on its brand new multiplatform project. According to the studio's Twitter account, that title will be announced at tomorrow's EA press conference. "We are excited to reveal our..
Sometimes we get in a sticky spot doing this job
See: we love playing video games as much as we love writing about them. Because of that, we don't always want to watch every trailer or gameplay leak for a game we're excited about. We're sure you're all familiar with the term "media blackout". Alice: Madness Returns is one of those games we don't want to know anything about. We watched the..
Hands up if you don't want to play as a psychotic child clutching at a butcher's knife and launching into a frenzied hysteria attack? (If you've got your hand up, you're doing it wrong by the way
"Bagsy not reviewing it," was the chant that reverberated through the PushSquare office when we got word of another entry in the shockingly unfunny DeathSpank
Looking back, we were far too lenient on the original game — a belief made shockingly clear when no one stepped forward to review the hastily rushed out sequel. Now Hothead's announced a...
As time goes by, more and more people become obsessed with game's portraying various sexual preferences
It's almost like games aren't good anymore if there isn't the option to be gay, straight or bisexual. Bioware's on a one developer crusade to change all that though. According to Bioware's Casey Hudson, Mass Effect 3 will support "wider options for love interests," including same-sex..
You can't fault EA for being ambitious, but releasing Battlefield 3 in the exact same release window as the next Call Of Duty sounds like suicide to us
Still, that's exactly what the publisher intends to do according to retail sources familiar with the matter. MCV reports that EA is intending to drop Battlefield 3 "within days" of the next Call Of Duty release, which is set to be..
It's a bizarre one this really
We still don't know anything about Battlefield 3's core multiplayer experience, but the developer is really keen to talk about the premium DLC that comes free with preorders of the game. Odd. The DLC — entitled Back To Karkand — features several classic maps from Battlefield's heritage, which, according to lead designer Niklas Fegraeus, are some of the "best..
As with every other big-budget first-person shooter, Crysis 2 will be getting its first slice of DLC this month
Crytek's gorgeous alien-invasion blockbuster will get a pack called "Retaliation" on May 17th. Obviously, any PlayStation DLC dates have a big question-mark looming over them while the PSN stays offline. The pack will include four new multiplayer maps, including: Park Avenue,..
Remember Burnout Crash, the rumoured PlayStation Network spin-off of the popular destructive racing franchise? Well, now we've got some concrete details on the unannounced game
According to the ESRB ratings board, this is a top-down racing game featuring "cartoon" vehicles and plenty of crashing. Apparently players will earn points for...
EA's added fuel to the flames of the developing rift between Battlefield 3 and the next Call Of Duty title
Speaking at an investors conference overnight, EA gaffer John Riccitiello said DICE's Battlefield 3 is "superior" to Call Of Duty in every way. Riccitiello added that the publisher aims to take a big chunk of Activision's Call Of Duty market with the modern military shooter. "We..
Last night, Bioware revealed it was delaying Mass Effect 3 in order to make the "best game in the series"
But overnight, EA boss John Riccitiello said the delay was instead intended to tweak the game's gameplay in order to reach a "larger market". "Essentially, step by step, [BioWare is] adjusting some of the gameplay mechanics and some of the features that you'll see at E3 that can..
Mass Effect 3's executive producer Casey Hudson has revealed on Facebook that the next installment in Commander Shepard's adventure will not debut until the "first three months of 2012"
The game was previously due out in the Fall of this year. "The development team is laser focused on making sure Mass Effect 3 is the biggest, boldest and best game in the series, ensuring that it exceeds..
Good news for Valve: the developer has confirmed that Portal 2's launch is the "fastest-selling" since Half Life 2
To reward everyone for eagerly rushing out to purchase copies of the game, Valve has outlined what it's creatively entitling "Portal 2 DLC #1". We heard the first details about the content expansion a few days ago, when Valve employee Doug Lombardi confirmed new content would..
Hurriedly announced after a teaser trailer leaked on a retail website, EA has confirmed that Need For Speed: The Run is a genuine video game due for release on PlayStation 3 this year
The game's pushing the Need For Speed franchise back into the realm of underground illicit, high-stakes racing, after Shift and Hot Pursuit both took the series in different directions. Fascinatingly, Need For..
If you've already beaten Portal 2's single-player and co-operative campaigns, then you might be wondering when you might be able to get an additional fix of portal-powered puzzling
Speaking with the Fast Company, Valve's marketing gaffer Doug Lombardi has confirmed that more content is on the way, possibly as soon as this summer. "We will be announcing some DLC for it, so folks can keep a look..
Last week was big for new releases, with Portal 2, Mortal Kombat, SOCOM 4 (or Special Forces depending on your region) and Operation Flashpoint: Red River all launching ahead of the Easter weekend
As suspected, Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat had the strongest showing, both finishing up first and second respectively. That's a well deserved result for both titles, as they're both excellent. If you..
The release date of Shinji Mikami and Suda51's grindhouse horror romp, Shadows Of The Damned, has been pushed back a couple of weeks
The game was originally due out in early June, but has now been given a more firm June 21st date. The change has probably been implemented in order to avoid the E3 media vaccuum that's due to kick off at the start of the month. We've seen very little of Shadows Of The..
We're all over EA's Shadows Of The Damned
Not because it looks particularly fresh, innovative or originial, but because it's from Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil) and Suda51 (Killer7). Silliness is guaranteed.</em>
If you were expecting some brand-spanking, gob-stopping visual enhancements in Mass Effect 3: stop
GameInformer's got the exclusive reveal of the first Mass Effect 3 screenshots, and they look just like Mass Effect 2. In fact, if you didn't tell us otherwise, we'd assume they were DLC. We'd love to post the screenshots here, but we daren't. GameInformer exclusives are scary business. Click
Portal 2 on the PlayStation 3 is arguably the best console version of the game
The original Portal on PS3 is not. At the time, Valve gaffer Gabe Newell hated the PlayStation 3. Now he loves it. Business, etc. With Portal 2 now readily available worldwide, the developer has confirmed that the original game was a bigger success than many first assumed. It's actually sold nearly four million copies..
Well that's just secured your pre-order right? Confirming rumours from earlier in the week, EA has revealed that new copies of Alice: Madness Returns will come coupled with a downloadable version of the original American McGee's Alice
This is amazing news. The addition fulfills EA's "Online Pass" mandate, and as such will cost players $10 if they buy a used copy of the game. Furthermore,..
While not yet officially publisher endorsed, an interview with American McGee on CVG suggests that Alice Madness Returns will release with a PlayStation 3 port of the original PC-exclusive Alice. McGee dropped the bomb while explaining the challenges of adding a DLC tail to a strictly single-player experience: "There will be DLC in the form of dresses that the player can download and..

We've all known since last E3 that Portal 2 would be getting Steam features on the PlayStation 3
But even though we're mere weeks away from the game's launch, we've still yet to get any concrete details on how it all works. That's changed today, as the mega-developer has given some more specific details on Portal 2's Steam integration. The PS3 version of the game will feature a Steam overlay,..
EA's Todd Batty has revealed that the publisher are gunning for an early 2012 release for their upcoming SSX reboot
Apparently the game will be playable at E3 in June, where we should expect more information on the game. Presumably EA will also want to do everything within their power to pull away from the backlash of that initial reveal too.
EA's confirmed that this year's Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters is the fastest selling game in the franchise's history
Gamasutra reports that the title has shifted 225,000 units during its first week on release — a favourable 17 percent more than Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 which was the previous best seller. It's well deserved too: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 is a fantastic golf game. To celebrate..
Just as we were thinking, "You know what the world needs, more Dragon Age," a great stonking rumour from Official PlayStation Magazine hints at just that
The magazine report posted by CVG teases that we should expect "more elf sexy time" as "Dragon Age III is on the way, with an added multiplayer component." For the record, Dragon Age II released like a month ago. They're..
Everything we've seen of Battlefield 3 has looked amazing
But everything we've seen of Battlefield 3 has also been running on a computer as big as Buckingham Palace. It doesn't take a genius to understand that the PlayStation 3 version won't look quite as good. Speaking with VideoGamer, DICE executive Patrick Bach revealed that the console port will lack "higher resolution, the higher..
Step into the warped mind of American McGee
Or rather, step into the warped mind of American McGee's interpretation of Alice. Or rather, step into the warped mind of American McGee's interpretation of Lewis Carroll's Alice. Or rather... Whatever! You get the idea. Just make sure you get hype, because Alice: Madness Returns looks incredible. We've already got it on pre-order and cannot wait for its..
It didn't take long for the first Mass Effect 3 details to be leaked out of GameInformer's cover story and onto the 'net
As always, we support print media, so if you want the full story, go and buy a copy of GameInformer. We'll summarise for the sake of convenience here. The biggest take-away from the new set of Mass Effect 3 information is: more Mass Effect. There'll be multiple good and bad..
EA's hoping to unify all of its games under one persistent player profile, EA Sports' Peter Moore has revealed

EA's toned down the gritty appearance of its next generation SSX title by dropping the game's sub-title
Now named "SSX", EA's keen to win back the fans it lost with last year's action oriented debut trailer. "I've always thought racing was the core of SSX," creative director Todd Batty told Game Informer, "and we didn't want to go away from that, so we're going to have..
We've still not adjusted to writing about Mass Effect as a PlayStation franchise yet
It's so weird that the franchise's has jumped from being a pseudo-XBOX exclusive (we know there were PC versions) to being closely associated with the PlayStation 3. Don't get us wrong — we're absolutely not complaining. It's just a bit weird. Maybe it's just us? Anyway, the news: GameInformer's confirmed that..
One of the most exciting gaming stories of this year is EA's war with Activision for the first-person shooter crown
In the red corner is EA's Battlefield 3, with the inevitable November Call Of Duty release sitting in the blue corner. Speaking at the Ad Age Conference in New York, EA CEO John Riccitiello revealed that both publishers will drop "a couple hundred million dollars [worth of]..
Amidst all the furore surrounding EA's re-release of NBA Jam last year, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that the game actually released on PlayStation 3 last year

Another day, another example of resume sleuthing
JustPushStart has picked up on the LinkedIn profile of EA software engineer, Juan José Galera Pérez, who lists FIFA 12 as a current project.

We imagine there are plenty of chuffed faces around EA UK this morning -- no less than four of the publisher's games occupy the top ten this week
Crysis 2 is still at the number one spot, with new release Shift 2: Unleashed a few spots behind in fourth. Elsewhere for EA, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 took the sixth spot, while FIFA 11 continues to do gangbusters in eighth. Presumably the biggest story..
EA's released the third in its series of Battlefield 3 gameplay teasers, promising that there will be a full reveal on April 17th
Frankly the game looks phenomenal. We appreciate this footage is probably running on a PC the size of our house, but DICE has always been good about maximising the potential of its PlayStation 3 games. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 looked stunning on PS3. This game is going..
American McGee's importance has clearly been relegated in Alice: Madness Returns
Y'see, the legendary designer's name was a fundamental part of his previous Lewis Carroll stone-'em-up, American McGee's Alice. But unfortunately McGee's stock must be falling. Madness Returns settles for a lowly recognition of McGee's involvement, noting in small, rounded text: "An American McGee Game"..
Despite Need For Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed being released on PlayStation 3 next week, the mood isn't particularly celebratory at developers Slightly Mad Studios

"Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today. I want to be a part of it - New York, New York," are the lyrics that would be present in this Crysis 2 launch trailer if Crytek hadn't gone for some dodgy street remix majig. Don't get us wrong, we like some urban beats. Not keen on this tune though. But that doesn't matter because it's Crysis 2! Hide behind your desks folks. Stay in your house. The..
EA's finally confirmed a March 29th release date for the next instalment of Mass Effect 2 DLC, "Arrival"
The DLC sends protagonist Shepard to the "border of the galaxy" in order to rescue a female undercover agent that might have evidence regarding the impending Reaper invasion. If none of this makes sense to you, we're assuming you didn't play Mass Effect 2. Either that, or you did play..
Amidst a huge backlash from the gaming community, EA has pulled the PlayStation 3 version of the Crysis 2 demo from the PlayStation Store

EA's confirmed that legendary composer Hans Zimmer has contributed to Crysis 2's soundtrack
It'll be the second shooter Zimmer has scored, after he previously worked on Modern Warfare 2. Zimmer said he was drawn to the project because of Crytek's "passion", and eventually teamed up with current composers Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu to create the score. I was drawn to Crysis 2..
Mass Effect 2 took the top-prize at last night's gaming BAFTAs, scooping the gong for game of the year
Sony and Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain wasn't far behind though, winning three awards for its story, technical innovation and original music. Elsewhere on PlayStation, God Of War III took the prize for artistic achievement while Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was crowned best action game. The full set..
The net's been alight with criticism aimed at Crytek over the PlayStation 3 version of Crysis 2
While nobody seems to be all that satisfied with the XBOX 360 version, apparently the PlayStation 3 version is worse. But Crytek's Nathan Camarillo insisted that is not the case on the PlayStation Blog. "I've gone on the record saying that if you stick PS3 and 360 side by side I would challenge..
At its core Battlefield 3 might just be yet another military first-person shooter, but good grief does it look amazing
This latest snippet released by DICE is a little swear-heavy, but its emphasis on Frostbite 2's enhanced destruction engine is wildly impressive. Look at those pots smash!
Remember the Mass Effect 2 DLC Bioware accidentally leaked? Well, hey-ho, here's your first glimpse of it
This mysterious new screenshot popped up on Bioware's Facebook page, craftily hinting at its relation to the rumoured "Arrival" DLC. Bioware's promising more screens if enough people hit the "Share" button. Social network marketing. Fabulous.
We're the biggest Alice In Wonderland nerds you'll ever meet
We own both novels (Adventures and Through The Looking Glass), like, ten times over and have been reading them on-and-off feverishly for several years. As such, Alice: Madness Returns has been sitting on top of our most-wanted list for a good long while. The sequel to American McGee's PC platformer, Madness Returns very much looks like..
EA Games' president Frank Gibeau has sworn that he did not kill Mirror's Edge 2, telling CVG that the game is definitely not dead

Battlefield 3 does look startlingly impressive
We showed you exactly why earlier this morning. DICE's Frostbite engine is really pushing boundaries this time, with some outrageously speculative lighting and animation. In fact, DICE cites the engine as the reason for the very reason for the game taking so long — the developer refused to make the game until the right tech was in place. Frostbite 2..
How much have we actually seen of Suda51 and Shinji Mikami's horror title, Shadows Of The Damned? Not a lot at all, but it's out in just a few months
EA's slapped a June 7th release date on the grindhouse-inspired game, creating a horror double-header alongside Alice: Madness Returns. Speaking at GDC, both Suda51 and Shinji Mikami fleshed out some of the gameplay details behind Shadows Of The..
Chalk this one up as our most anticipated game of the summer -- EA and American McGee's Spicy Horse studio have slapped a June 14th release date on the bonkers looking PS3 horror title, Alice: Madness Returns
The game's a sequel to American McGee's terrifying reimagining of Lewis Carroll's novels, and sends a grown Alice back into the warped world of Wonderland. Hopefully we get some solid gameplay..
You might not like shooters
You might not like video games at all. But you have to admit, this debut Battlefield 3 trailer is pretty darn amazing. The lighting, animation and general image quality is out of this world, even if the trailer probably is captured from a super computer. According to DICE, the game uses technology established in EA's sports titles to create the uncanny animation. "I..
There was a time not too long ago when we were all bouncing in anticipation at the thought of playing Portal 2 with a PlayStation Move controller

Activision has said that the Modern Warfare 3 countdown website that appeared online yesterday is a hoax
The publisher added that it's equally unaware of the promotional dogtags that were dispatched to the press. The dogtags referenced both the countdown website and characters from the Modern Warfare series. "There seems to be a great deal of speculation about the next Call of Duty project..
Crytek's finally broken the silence on the PlayStation 3 version of Crysis 2, releasing a new gameplay trailer running on Sony's platform
Technically the footage looks fine, but we're still a little concerned by how bland the action looks. Bad editing? We hope so. The trailer confirms that PlayStation 3 owners will get access to a multiplayer demo at some point in the future. The demo's already..
Hot-on-the-heels of this morning's excellent (if shortlived) Battlefield 3 gameplay reveal, EA's confirmed that all Limited Edition (or first run) copies of the game will come with a digital expansion pack entitled "Back To Karkand"
The themed multiplayer expansion will include four maps from Battlefield 2, re-imagined with Frostbite 2's updated physics and destruction engine. Naturally there'll..
The best thing about Dead Space: Extraction was protagonist Lexine Murdoch's hair-band, but from what we can make out from this chaotic Dead Space 2: Severed trailer, her head accessory has disappeared
We could get over the subtle changes to Isaac's girlfriend's face during Dead Space 2's main campaign, but this is unforgivable. She doesn't even look like the same character. Thankfully the DLC..
EA's slapped a March 1st release date (March 2nd for Europeans) on the first Dead Space 2 expansion pack, Severed
The DLC depicts the story of Dead Space: Extraction's protagonists Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdoch. As a security officer, Weller comes equipped with a one-of-a-kind security suit and an upgraded, more powerful Pulse Rifle that will help him unleash his own blood-curdling adventure..
If we were Activision, we'd be shaking in our boots right now
If anything stands a chance against the Call Of Duty juggernaut, it's Battlefield 3. While this debut trailer is light as a feather in terms of content, we can't help but feel that this holiday's first-person shooter showdown is going to be bloody. Exciting isn't it?
So, we're not totally hot on realistic golf games
We prefer our video game golf to involve three button presses, cute characters and annoying accents. Still, the refined PlayStation Move support touted in the upcoming Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: Masters Edition certainly has our attention piqued. And if Game Hunters are to be believed, we might get to...
People Can Fly's dudebro shooter, Bulletstorm, is not even out in Europe, but it's not stopping EA from announcing the first batch of DLC
Entitled, Gun Sonata, it features three new maps for the Anarchy multiplayer campaign: the Sewers of Stygia, the ruins of Hotel Elysium, and the Villa. The DLC also includes a couple of new Echoes maps, which are Bulletstorm's equivalent of time-trials. The pack..
It's the "will they, won't they" drama that's consuming the 'net now Gran Turismo 5 is actually a shipped product available on store shelves -- will DICE ever confirm the existence of a Mirror's Edge sequel? Last we heard the first-person parkour platformer had been scrapped, but EA's been pretty vocal about the importance of the franchise since then
Now there's perhaps a little more fuel to power..
Itching for more hands-on time with Commander Shepard? Sure, us too
Well it looks like we're in luck. In addition to patching the recent PlayStation 3 version of the space RPG, Bioware's extended the game's trophy roster by three with new achievements for a DLC pack entitled "Arrival". Some theorists on Bioware's forums believe the new DLC...
EA's proudly boasting that their upcoming racing simulator, Need For Speed Shift 2: Unleashed, will be the first video game to feature the Pagani Huayra
We're informed it's a desirable car or something. Despite the vehicle's Italian heritage, EA's delayed Shift 2 in Europe. But it's only a minor set-back, pushing the game back a week from March 24th to March 31st. We're sure fans will cope.
In a surprisingly low-key blog entry on the official Medal Of Honor blog, Danger Close producer Greg Goodrich has confirmed that the studio is working on a new Medal Of Honor title
He wrote: "Yes, Danger Close is currently working on the next Medal of Honor. "Just recently, EA announced that the reboot of Medal of Honor was a big success with over 5 million copies sold. We wanted to take..
Yesterday we reported comments made by Valve's Chet Faliszek, in which he confirmed that the PlayStation 3 version of Portal 2 would support the PlayStation Move motion controller
Valve spokesman Doug Lombardi has since issued a statement clarifying that "this quote was 'lost in translation' - Portal 2 does not include support for Sony's motion controller." The source of Chet's original..
Considering Crysis 2 is a multiplatform game, Crytek's been mighty silent about the shooter on PlayStation 3
While both PC and XBOX 360 gamers have had access to a demo of the sci-fi shooter for a while, PlayStation 3 hasn't gotten so much as a sniff. But executive producer, Nathan Camarillo, told PSU that we "can probably hope for a demo". Would certainly be a good way of getting people..
Ask nicely and ye shall receive
Emphatically in Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit's case, as EA's just revealed not one, not two, but three new sets of DLC for Criterion's high-octane racer. First up is the Armed And Dangerous pack. That's due next Tuesday (Wednesday for Europe?) and includes two new game modes: Most Wanted and Arms Race. The former pits the cops against one singled-out racer, while the..
Hot-on-the-heels of rumours that an in-development Mirror's Edge title has been cancelled, EA has told 1Up that the series is still "important" to them
The publisher, however, refused to comment on rumours that a sequel has been squashed, stating it has "nothing further to announce" regarding the immediate plans of the franchise. Our guess is this: Mirror's Edge 2 was in development at..
After playing Killzone 3 with Sony's motion controller, we're itching to experience more first-person games with the PlayStation Move
No better game fits the bill than Valve's puzzle-shooter, Portal 2. Thankfully the publisher is ahead of the curve. Writing on the German PlayStation Blog, Valve's Chet Faliszek confirmed support for the Move, stating the controller is a new experience for the..
Dead Space 2's only just launched to critical (and commercial) acclaim, but already EA's uttering the words Dead Space 3
Speaking at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference, EA gaffer John Riccitiello said that the Dead Space franchise could reach the "five million unit cadence" [pssht, pretentious, John - Ed] with the release of "Dead Space 3". It's worth noting..
Long-time readers of PushSquare will already be aware of our minor obsession with anything Alice In Wonderland related
It's rather appropriate then that the sequel to American McGee's Alice — formally titled Alice: Madness Returns — should rank pretty highly amongst our most anticipated PlayStation 3 titles. We think the game's latest trailer justifies it's place alongside The Last Guardian and..
When Shinji Mikami revealed he was working on a new PS3 title with Grasshopper's Suda51, we immediately jumped to all the wrong conclusions: survival horror, bonkers art-style, weird psychological narrative, awesome
Unfortunately, the reality of the collaboration, Shadows Of The Damned, has done nothing but disappoint us. Maybe our expectations were too high, but it just looks really bland. Check..
Mirror's Edge was a sequel away from perfection
EA and DICE's brilliant first-person parkour title was so unique that it didn't get everything right first time around. We're convinced that with a couple of years additional development, and the benefit of hindsight, Mirror's Edge 2 could have been something magical. But the original launched in 2008 and it's now 2011. A report on V!chaku points out..
We're not totally convinced by the longevity of Dead Space 2's competitive multiplayer mode, but it's a fine addition to the package
The gameplay is fun in short-bursts, and while we don't expect it to have anywhere near the tail of other multiplayer titles, it's a nice palette cleanser between long stretches with the game's campaign mode. Those...

Let's get any guessing or mystery out of the way first: EA's mystery first-person shooter title is Battlefield 3
There's no need for speculation, that's fact. Deal with it. In fact, we're so certain it's Battlefield 3, we're not even sure why EA are teasing it. Still, the story stems from EA's financial call last night. CEO John Riccitiello was answering a question relating to Medal Of Honor when..
Unsurprisingly Dead Space 2 has topped the UK sales charts this week, destroying the numbers of its predecessor by a good 70 percent
