Final Fantasy III Port in Development for PSP

We know

The PlayStation Portable continues to be a prominent system in Japan – perhaps to the detriment of the recently released PlayStation Vita.

Squirm Through This Sleeping Dogs E3 Trailer

Difficult viewing

If you were offended by the gratuitous violence in Sony’s God of War: Ascension and The Last of Us demos during E3, then you probably won’t want to watch this Sleeping Dogs trailer. It shows protagonist Detective Wei Shen being tortured in some pretty horrific ways. Still, if you’re not bothered by the appearance of a little...

Swap out Lara Croft for Nathan Drake and this brand new Tomb Raider demo would look right at home on Sony’s stage. In the demo, a fragile Lara is shown picking off foes with a bow-and-arrow, before falling...

Fight, fight, fight

Sleeping Dogs wouldn’t be an accurate Hong Kong adventure without a fist-fight or three. This brand new trailer shows off the game’s fighting mechanics – both technical and dirty. Sure the counters and combos look fine, but we’re not sure setting someone’s face on fire contributes towards a fair fight. The game...

Final Fantasy Versus XIII Won't Be at E3

Sorry

Look, Square Enix knows you’ve waited over 5 years to get your hands on Final Fantasy Versus XIII – but the publisher wants you to hold out a little longer. The Japanese company has unveiled its E3 2012 line-up and, unless there’s a last minute miracle, it does not include the oft-delayed RPG. In fact, much of Square Enix’s line-up is...

It's a conspiracy

The PlayStation 2 re-release of the seminal PC title Deus Ex is heading to the PlayStation 3. The evidence comes courtesy of a listing posted prematurely by European age ratings body, PEGI. Publisher Square Enix has refused to comment on the listing, stating that it “does not comment on rumour or speculation”. Still, these kind...
