Ok, are we wrong for thinking things are getting a little shady here? Maybe the Sony Defence Force inside of us is taking over, but From Software's Dark Souls just looks
.. shady. When people said "it's the spiritual successor Demon's Souls", we were like, "alright, cool, it won't be exactly the same". But it is. In fact the only reason it isn't is because Sony owns the..
Batman: Arkham City's lead gaffer Sefton Hill was talking up the game's bigger environment open-world environment yesterday
Just to remind you there's been no visual sacrifice, have a new screenshot. There's more over at VG247.</em>
One thing we've noticed about Japanese developed fiction is that they love to marry the future with the past
A popular character choice is a hulking robotic dude armed to the teeth with classic Japanese blades. Take Zero, a character in Platinum Games' Anarchy Reigns. He's a ninja with a katana sword, but he looks like a robot. There's a trailer after the jump.
The original inFamous had a heavy emphasis on the morality of your actions
Choices were binary and contrived, but the whole mechanic shaped the way the world responded to you as well as Cole's looks. In inFamous 2, Cole will need to make moral decisions once again, but this time they will be represented by character-driven dialogue and 3D mocap cut-scenes". Fancy press release jargon maybe,..
The only problem with Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is that only one player can assume the role of Captain Qwark
We predict straw drawing and angrily exchanged PlayStation Network messages. See while Ratchet's side-kick Clank, and nemesis Nefarious are cool, they pale in significance to the adorably arrogant Qwark. The latest gameplay trailer for Insomniac's co-operative platform shows off a..
Resistance: Fall Of Man was brilliant
Resistance 2 had its moments. But judging by this new gameplay clip of Resistance 3, Insomniac's really stepped up their game. The footage includes a quick glimpse at Resistance 3's "Weapon Wheel" — one of fan's most demanded features after it was removed from Resistance 2. It also looks pretty. Like, really pretty. The game's "vibe" is..
We're beginning to wonder if there's anything else to L
A. Noire</a> other than "OMGZ LOOK HOW GOOD THE FACES ARE WITH OUR MOTIONSCAN TECHNOLOGY!" Every single screenshot, trailer and piece of PR has focused on the same thing. The faces. Look at the goddamn faces. Y'know guys, we think Rockstar want us to look at the faces. As it happens, the face technology is part of a bigger..
Konami's been teasing Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's first DLC pack, "Reverie", for a while now on the game's Facebook page
The site teases: Tick tock Its time for another glimpse into the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Reverie DLC. What might Gabriel try to change with this time machine? As is the case for all of Lords Of Shadow, the artwork's yummy.
To remind everyone that the stupidly stylish No More Heroes is coming to PlayStation 3, Konami's released a batch of new screenshots of the Nintendo Wii port
The HD update's due in the West this year with added PlayStation Move controls. There are more screens through here.</em>
We'll leave it to FluffyLogic to pitch upcoming PlayStation Network exclusive Eat Them
</a>. According to the developer, "Eat Them! gives gamers the chance to create and bring to life colossal monsters in order to flatten entire cities and feast on their inhabitants." Awesome. It's available on the North American PlayStation Network...
.. a bunch of racers are dropped out of a helicopter onto a collapsing building. Just a normal game of MotorStorm: Apocalypse then? Seriously people, this game needs more hype. We've played it twice now and it's insane. There's more information about MotorStorm's "race where you get dropped from a helicopter onto a skyscraper that is already collapsing, and are expected to win against a pack..
Codemaster's generally put out super pretty games
Codemaster's DiRT franchise in particular looks pretty great. Is it any real surprise that first shots of DiRT 3 are amazing, then? Not really no. </em>
Bioshock Infinite's not due out for years
It might have actually been announced too early; because there are still two years of development left on this thing. But the one thing we can be sure of when it ships is that it's going to be amazing. Absolutely amazing. Joystiq's got a batch of new screenshots. Catch them through the link.
Take this giant statue thing -- shortly after the screenshot was taken it lost its head
Like, all of its head. God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta is just a few weeks off now. It's looking absolutely brilliant. There's a demo available on both legs of the PlayStation Store if you want to give it a test run.</em> <em>The full batch of shots are over at VG247.</em>
GameInformer's got a cover-story on Resistance 3
You might have seen the artwork: it shows the game's new protagonist, Capelli, riding a train whilst being chased by a gigantic Widowmaker. It wasn't the only piece of artwork designed for the magazine cover. GameInformer's shown off an alternative piece of art which shows Capelli chased by Chimera in a destroyed bomb-bunker. Both images paint an..
"It's the Batman," is a phrase you're likely to scream if you're some kind of criminal reading this page
Don't worry guys, it's only screens from the caped crusader's latest game, Batman: Arkham City. It's not the real thing, yo. Story padding aside, Arkham City looks really good.</em> There's more screens over on Joystiq.
Rockstar's sent us a few more screens of Red Dead Redemption's upcoming Undead Nightmare DLC pack
We still think this looks fantastic. We're looking forward to blasting some brains presumably when the pack launches closer to Hallowe'en.</em>
Following this morning's announcement, Ubisoft's released the first screens from the upcoming Beyond Good & Evil HD
The game will be brushed up in 1080p, and will throw in support for trophies, leaderboards and the like. It'll hit the PlayStation Network next year.</em>
Characters really don't get much more amazing than Resident Evil's antagonist Albert Wesker
He's one of our favourites. So we're stoked to see him show up as part of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3's roster. Wesker will join Spider-Man and numerous others in the final game. We can't wait.
Look, we're sorry alright
We know you wanted a PlayStation 3 game, but Valkyria Chronicles III is on the PSP. You're going to have to get over it at some point. We know you're mad, but you can't keep shooting the messenger. Besides, Valkyria Chronicles II was a great PlayStation Portable game by all accounts, and we're certain the next game will build upon that. We mean, the
Famitsu's released a new set of direct-feed shots from The Last Guardian
As you might imagine, they are utterly gorgeous. The new screens are a bit small due to Famitsu's compression, so here's hoping we get some biggies direct from Sony soon. Fumito Ueda's due to have a big presence at TGS this year. We're expecting to see more of The Last Guardian, aswell as the formal announcement of the..
Dante's got dark hair
That's probably the biggest thing you can take out from the screenshots released for the new Devil May Cry title, which is in development at the British studio Ninja Theory. According to Capcom, three top-level Japanese staff will be flying over to the UK to work with Ninja Theory on DMC. Capcom's honcho Keiji Inafune was coy in regards to dates, stating it was too early to..
Killzone's always been a franchise that prides itself on its spectacular visuals
But Killzone 3 looks to take one step above the benchmark we've come to expect. Famitsu's got some new shots, concepts and renders. It all looks flawlessly incredible. We can't wait until the game releases in February. [Cheers TSA]
Way to break embargo, Batman
A Flickr user has uploaded, what looks to be, the first batch of Batman: Arkham City shots. They look pretty incredible to be honest. The shots show Two-Face, Catwoman, Harley Quinn and more. There are 20 shots in total. Hit the link, y'all.
Meodia's got some new screens of Ubisoft's upcoming PlayStation Move title, Racquet Sports
As evidenced by the title, the game features a bunch of different racquet based sports including squash, tennis and beach tennis. It also happens to look rather pretty, if a little colour-by-numbers. If they nail the controls, we can picture ourselves having a lot of fun with this.</em>
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Of The Colossus perhaps? It might lack originality - seems like Castlevania's going to work with the formula of a number of PlayStation greats - but it looks stunning all the same
There are more shots over at Kotaku.
Warner Bros and NetherRealm has confirmed two new characters for the Mortal Kombat roster today: Cyrax and Kitana
Both will be playable in the new game set to launch next year. Don't forget, the game will feature full stereoscopic 3D support on the PlayStation 3.
No matter how fresh, bright and exciting Bioshock's worlds are supposed to look; they're usually dark, sinisted and horrible
We assume Bioshock: Infinite's sky-city, Columbia, will be no different. See this guy holding a gun? Yeah, he's probably not a happy man.
Capcom's confirmed two new characters set to join the Marvel vs
Capcom 3</a> roster at GamesCom today. Both Viewtiful Joe from the 2003 GameCube classic and Marvel antagonist Dormammu (anyone?) are the latest entries into the roster. We're stoked about Viewtiful Joe, but honestly, we don't know who the other guy is. Kotaku's got a bunch of screens.
Siliconera's got hold of some brand-new shots of Street Fighter X Tekken
The shots, released by Capcom, show Ryu and Chun-Li kicking lumps out of Tekken's Nina and Kazuya. Still seems weird. Looks proper awesome, though.
Admittedly we know about as much about cars as we do American Football
That is to say, not a lot. Still, while we're destined to get pulled up in the comments about our non-description of the above pictured car (we think it's a Dodge Viper?), we just want to say that we like the way it looks. In fact, we're pretty certain Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit's going to have some of the best police cars..
As an onlooking Servbot watches Tekken's Kazuya kick the crap out of Street Fighter's Ryu, we can't help but feel that the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken cross-over heading to the PlayStation 3 is probably the best announcement since sliced bread
Sadly, the producer of Capcom's game, Yoshinori Ono, reckons the project is still some time off - citing a 2012 release date is on the cards. Ono said..
Killzone 3 continues to look proper despite its pre-alpha state
A new batch of screenshots published over at GamersMint prove as much. You want the boom-boom? You're going to need Killzone 3 next year. Gah, it's in 3D too isn't it? Yeah, you're going to need a new Telly too.</em>
Sony's released the first screenshots of the dividing inFamous 2
While early impressions from the press - who saw the game behind closed doors during E3 - have been positive (GameTrailers' Geoff Keighley described the game as "impressive"), the fan-base seems pretty divided over the new look Cole. He's kinda growing on us, but we still get why people aren't digging him. He just looks..
If you haven't yet seen it, check out Red Faction: Armageddon's trailer right through here
Then head off to VG247, who have the first screenshots of the upcoming destuctive shooter from THQ.</em>
Stop what you're doing
Just stop ok. Now hover your mouse cursor right about here, and click. Thank goodness. Sit back and enjoy the amazingly amazingness of these Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 screens. Did we mention they were amazing? They're amazing. Get hype, indeed!
Killzone 3 wasn't supposed to be announced until next week
But certain magazines have forced developers Guerrilla Games' hand. Hence the bringing forward of a massive embargo, and the release of some early hands-on impressions (they are glowing like a Helghast's blinkers). Sony's not really saying anything about the game that wasn't already noted over the weekend, stating that "Killzon
Sony's whacked up some new screens of cars tearing up the Nurburgring in Gran Turismo 5
The screens are understandably pretty. You can check out the full collection courtesy of the Playstation Blog. We recommend you do so.</em>
One of the strongest responses we've heard to Red Dead Redemption is in response to its wildlife
Apparently the various animals roaming the wild west are ridiculously well animated, a real sight to behold. We would make the joke, "until you shoot them in the face, hahahaLOLchortle!1", but we like animals. Even digital ones.</em>
Sony's shocked us all this morning by announcing that God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta, a totally new entry in the franchise, will hit the Playstation Portable this year
They've shocked us even further by dropping some ridiculously amazing shots of the game. Check them out after the jump.
This is operation commander Cullen Gray, ex-NATO and now video game protagonist
The dude's only thirty-six, but already he's seen a lot. Like the inside of Zipper Interactive's studio, and presumably early running footage of his soon-to-be stomping ground, SOCOM 4. You can find out much more about Cullen, and grab a ton of SOCOM screens over at the Playstation Blog.
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%.
These details regarding SEGA's Yakuza: Project K don't make us sad because of their content
They make us sad because a Yakuza title on the Playstation Portable is almost certainly never going to get released here. As we told you recently, the game ditches usual Yakuza protagonist Kazuma Kiryu and replaces him with eighteen-year-old delinquent Tatsuya Ukyou. The kid's been expelled from school and..
Here's a screenshot for Konami's upcoming SAW: The Video Game 2
It's most surprising not because it looks particularly unpleasant, but because we had no idea there was another game in the works. The first one had some clever ideas, so we're quite excited by the prospect of an improved version of that.</em>
We told you this morning about Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's crossover content with Capcom's Monster Hunter franchise
The results look a bit like this, thanks to screens released by Famitsu. Yeah - we know, it looks awesome.</em>
Enslaved is the latest title from Heavenly Sword developers Ninja Theory
It's also strikingly pretty despite its post-apocalyptic setting. The game's based on the 400-year old Chinese novel, Journey To The West, and is due later this year.
Gaming might be all about youngsters, but the Wild West - that was for the experienced gun-slinger
Men who look wizened, old and, frankly, hard. Kotaku's got some shots of the older generation of Red Dead Redemption. The game continues to look bloody awesome.
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.
Despite some pretty "core" focused Playstation Move titles, Sony weren't being coy about bringing the new peripheral to the "extended" gamer
Move Party is a title aimed firmly at that, providing a range of whacky mini-games taking advantage of the accuracy of the Playstation Move controller, and the augmented reality possibilities of the Playstation Eye camera. Here players will be super-imposed..
During their GDC keynote last night, Sony showed off a sports game collection for the Playstation Move with some similarities to Nintendo's own Wii Sports Resort
The game, Sports Champions, features archery, table-tennis and a gladiator-esque game (massive potential for future third-person action adventure titles there). Check the screens after the jump. The Playstation Move has unparalleled,..
Sony announced their latest PS3 peripheral at a keynote as part of GDC last night
The Playstation Move will launch in the Fall of this year, alongside a host of software titles. Move works alongside the Playstation Eye to offer precise, lag-free motion control gaming steps ahead of Nintendo and Microsoft's offering. The key is in the precise depth and motion tracking, which has little-to-no..
We know we're going to get screamed at for this but, Fallout 3 is not a good looking game
And we're going to assume that Fallout: New Vegas is going to look like ass too. Particularly after seeing this first batch of screenshots from CVG. Will the game rock? Absolutely. Does it look like the most unappealing game ever based on its screenshots? Absolutely.
EA's released a few new screens of their Medal Of Honor reboot
The full set of shots can be seen at Kotaku, but before you hit the link, just stop and think for moment. How do you imagine Medal Of Honor might look? Got an image in your head? Yep, it looks like that.
Soak it in folks
This is the first ever screenshot (ever) of Team Bondi's L.A. Noire — the thriller that's been in development for almost forever. There are more shots over at GameInformer. If you have even a passing interest in the title, then you're probably no longer reading this.
If you know anything about baseball, you know that MLB 10 The Show is due to be the best baseball game there is
It's also going to be the best looking. As these new set of screens from Kotaku prove.
These shots (via Kotaku) show Final Fantasy XIII running on a Playstation 2
They've been published as part of a book documenting the development of Square Enix's latest RPG thriller. The sceens predate E3 2006, where the game was formally announced. Check the full set here.
GamesWire's got some awesome screens for SEGA's upcoming PSN flight-combat remake, Afterburner Climax
As you'd absolutely expect, the game looks pretty bloody rad. Check the full set through here.
First and foremost, divert your attention to Eurogamer where some new decidely wet screens for Heavy Rain have been posted
They're wet. Secondly, the game received its first rating in the British iteration of Official Playstation Magazine today, scoring a whopping 9/10:Certainly theres nothing quite like it on PS3, or indeed any other system. Put gaming conventions aside, go in with no..
Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days aims to look like a YouTube video
In a generation where games try to outpretty each other, it's a risky move. But we think it actually is shaping up awesome here. There's a full set of screens on VG247.
Consider today the "Official Day Of Amazing Playstation 3 Screenshots
" Not content with giving us amazing God Of War III screenshots, the day has also spurned amazing Gran Turismo 5 screenshots, via Gaf. You'll see amazingly good looking cars right through here. Sadly
Remember when people doubted whether God Of War III was going to be a good-looking game? You probably chuckled awkwardly, told them they were mad and shoved the Blades of Chaos through their heart
You were right to do so. Some new hi-res shots from Andriasang should tell you everything you need to know. A painting come to life. Indeed.
Remember that Nolan North voiced prince from 2008's Prince Of Persia reboot? Ubisoft hope not, because they're back to the ol' formula with Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands; the game which is surprisingly due to launch alongside the Jake Gyllenhaal movie later this year
Despite all our scepticism, this is Ubisoft making a game in their key franchise. It surely can't be terrible, right? You can..
Apparently, in God Of War III, there will only be chaos
And nothing encapsulates that better than some artwork posted on NeoGAF this morning that depicts Kratos in a brutal entangle with Hades [right? - Ed]. Amazing. Oh, and if you wanted evidence God Of War III ain't all that far away - the website just launched.
Eastasiasoft's retro PSN exclusive Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer was as hard to play as its name is to pronounce
Game was bonkers challenging. Thankfully, those of you with a glutton for punishment are due some more this winter when Soldner-X2: Final Prototype launches. And yes, it includes pretty explosions and lots of bullets. More through here.
Andriasang has a bunch of new screens for the upcoming Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
Presumably, all the screens are from the Lost In Nightmares expansion. More screens right through this bright little clicky text.
Would you like to see some new screenshots of United Front's upcoming "Play Create Share" kart racer, Modnation Racers? Dude, that's as obvious as asking us if we'd like rice pudding
Of course we do. Eurogamer Portugal have a pile of new screens for you to peruse. Game continues to look as hot as a member of The Saturdays in a sauna.
GameWatch have put up some awesome screen comparisons of Yakuza 4's "living" world at various points through the day
Day, dusk, night; the world looks vibrant at all periods, with some amazing ambient lighting going on. Please SEGA. Please bring this and Yakuza 3 to the West. If you won't let us have Shenmue III, then at least give us this.
This is a screenshot from Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption
A new one in fact. Joystiq have a few more you can peruse at your leisure. The game continues to look impressive with each new batch of screenshots released. And with Rockstar at the helm, it's hard not to be a teensy bit excited. Unless you absolutely hate GTAIV. In which case - you're probably not going to buy this out of principle or..
This screenshot, part of a full set you can view over at Kotaku, confirms that Modern Warfare 2 will be more than just a romp around brown landscapes
Alas, here we see the bright blue depths of the ocean, as British troops scuba-dive in clean looking water. By the way, have you folks heard those rumours that the game's first mission will take place in space? Crazy. Not long until we find out for..
Hey, Gran Turismo 5 may not be hitting shelves this year like we anticipated but, what the hell
The game still looks pretty. It's just you have to ogle screenshots. Instead of having it on your TV. In 1080p. And 60FPS. GAH! Who are we kidding, the wait is killing us. We're not sure whether this screenshot gallery appeases our GT needs, or totally makes them worse.
We're still waiting for White Knight Chronicles
But that's not stopping Sony and Level 5 from pimping the upcoming sequel, White Knight Chronicles: Awakening Of Light & Darkness. The sequel is set directly after events of the first game, depicting Leonard and his allies in a world of chaos. So far so cliche right? There'll be tons of new areas, monsters and places to explore. We guess if you..
When you develop games for the Playstation 3, they generally look pretty bloody amazing
When you develop games only for the PS3, well, they look out of this world. It's a shame more developers don't take the time to focus on the platform because, well, you'd have more screenshots akin to the Yakuza 4 one above. German site VideoGamesZone.de have plenty more where that came from too. This game looks..
Sackboy's looking just as charming as ever in these newly released screens from LittleBigPlanet PSP
This scene depicted in the new set over at Joystiq shows Sackboy taking to the stage and demanding applause. It's all so charming. Oh Sackboy, you make us swoon.
Look, it's a screenshot from Gran Turismo 5
What do you mean are we joking? No it's not a photograph! Look there's the menu and everything! It's from the game. Honestly. These are officially released screens courtesy of Sony. A queer time to release screens unless you're building up to announcement right? Maybe. Either way, Joystiq have the full selection.
Tecmo's Playstation 3 exclusive Quantum is getting a lot of comparison to the XBOX 360's Gears Of War
But we think it has a touch more style than CliffyB's epic. You see while it looks like a macho third person shooter in the foreground, the environments are flippin' bonkers. We can't wait. There's more over at Kotaku.
This is a screenshot from a video game
A very special video game in fact. It's from Insomniac's Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time. How, amazing, is, it, shaping, up, to, be? We actually completed Tools Of Destruction four times so you can't even measure our hype for the sequel. Sadly outside of our publication interest seems suspiciously low for Insomniac's latest and greatest. We hope Sony..
Team 17's Amiga classic Alien Breed is set to see a release on the Playstation 3 in the form of the remade Alien Breed Evolution
Generic titles aside the game looks flipping awesome. Here's what Team 17 had to say:"Team17 are absolutely delighted to formally confirm the return of one of its most cherished properties in Alien Breed Evolution...
We were pretty stoked for Yakuza 3 until SEGA came out and destroyed our dreams
If that wasn't bad enough videogaming247 have just rubbed salt into the wounds with an impressive compilation of screens. Check them out after the jump.<p style="text-align: center;">
