Leaked Image Reveals Collector's Edition For Aliens: Colonial Marines

Try to feign your surprise for this one, but it looks as though Aliens: Colonial Marines will be getting a premium priced collector's edition

We know — big game in limited edition shocker; we can hardly believe it ourselves. A leaked shot of said collector's edition hints at the inclusion of three additional in-game multiplayer weapons, a new game mode, an intel dossier, and a figurine to gather..

Binary Domain Producer Believes Shooters Have The Widest Window Of Entry

Some gamers would argue that there are too many shooters on the PlayStation 3, but Binary Domain's producer, Masayoshi Kikuchi, sees that as a good thing

Speaking with CVG, the developer revealed that Binary Domain took the run-and-gun route in order to achieve "the biggest window of entry for as many gamers as possible". Despite Binary Domain representing the Yakuza Studio's first proper..

Get Hype: House Of The Dead 3 Shoots Up The PlayStation Network From February 7th, House Of The Dead 4 Follows In The Spring

Don't suffer like G did

After last year's House of the Dead: Overkill — Extended Cut, SEGA's keeping the green blood flowing with two more shooter ports for PS3, but this time they're heading to the PlayStation Store. On 7th February the North American store gets House of the Dead 3, complete with PlayStation Move support, Trophies and HD...

Yu Suzuki On Shenmue: 'We Could Get The License From SEGA'

The word Shenmue hits like a dagger in our hearts everytime we read it

A single screenshot of the ambitious open-world title single-handedly sold us on SEGA's new Dreamcast console way back in the late 90's, and Yu Suzuki's sprawling adventure has held a special place in our hearts ever since. We still remember getting the game on Christmas morning, only to fall victim to the infamous Disc 3 bug..

Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 To Boast New Graphics, Remastered Physics

"Something about Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 is just not right," read our review of SEGA's nostalgic reboot last year

While we praised SEGA's intentions to return to Sonic's roots with the episodic Sonic The Hedgehog 4 series, we felt a little letdown by the first episode. It sure looked and sounded like a classic Sonic title, but it didn't feel like one. Thankfully that's a problem that SEGA's..

Yakuza Creator Teases 'Project A', Presumably Yakuza 5

A mysterious new Japanese splash page has appeared online this morning, teasing the next game from Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi

The page itself is light on content, but includes the words "Project A" in the URL. It also sports a link to the official Yakuza website at the bottom — leading us to believe that the splash has something to do with the upcoming Yakuza 5. Makes sense,..

Yakuza: Black Panther 2 Punches Its Way Onto PSP On March 22nd In Japan

The PlayStation Vita may be out, but the PlayStation Portable's still hot property in Japan

Next year will see Sony's first handheld host a slew of hot titles, with SEGA's Yakuza: Black Panther 2 right at the top of the list. A report in Dengeki PlayStation magazine has confirmed the spin-off brawler for a March 22nd release in Japan. The game will score both digital and retail releases, with the..

Anarchy Reigns Collared Until July 2012

SEGA's announced that it has delayed Platinum Games' arena brawler game, Anarchy Reigns, until July 2012

The game was originally intended to release in January, but the move's probably for the best — despite having played the game, we're still not entirely sure what it is. Speaking of the delay, SEGA's marketing vice president Gary Knight was particularly cryptic: "I can't reveal much..

Yakuza: Dead Souls Teaches You How To Kill A Zombie

There are dozens of ways to kill a zombie, but we reckon Yakuza: Dead Souls has a majority of them

Having got our hands-on an import version of the tongue-in-cheek spin-off earlier in the year, we can confirm that Dead Souls is packed with plenty of ridiculous zombie debilitating methods. You can hit them with conveniently ditched bicycles, smash them with fire-extinguishers or even punch them in..

Watch Sonic Team's Kazuyuki Hoshino Discuss The Art And Design Of Sonic CD

Video games are so bizarre sometimes

We fondly remember playing Sonic CD on the ill-fated Mega CD add-on. We never dreamed at the time that all of the game's ideas existed inside a couple of low-key sketch-books. But that's exactly what Sonic Team's art director, Kazuyuki Hoshino, has shown off in a developer diary preempting the digital re-release of Sonic CD on the PlayStation Network today..

Those in North America will have a short wait until the game releases on December 20th overseas. “Sonic’s 20th Anniversary has been a banner year for him – as well as for everyone at SEGA,” said SEGA's Haruki Satomi. “Gamers..

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz on PS Vita

It's a bit of a shame that Super Monkey Ball has been relegated to launch window fodder

SEGA's zany primate-populated pseudo-puzzle platformer felt like a breath of fresh air when it debuted on the Nintendo GameCube ten years ago, transforming a basic gameplay concept into something cute and, most importantly, memorable. But an overzealous SEGA was quick to oversaturate the wafer-thin concept,..

Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 Rating Uncovered

When SEGA announced it was to release Sonic The Hedgehog 4 as an episodic product, we expected the new stages to come thick and fast

But despite the original's great commercial success, Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 has felt like it's been on the back-burner for a while. That's changed this afternoon, as the eagle-eyed editors over at Siliconera have uncovered a rating for the unannounced game on..

SEGA Announces Samurai & Dragons For PlayStation Vita

SEGA's announced an action/simulation hybrid for PlayStation Vita, entitled Samurai & Dragons
