PSP shooter, The 3rd Birthday, which has been kept under-wraps for some time now, is set to make an appearance at the show, and will presumably feature heavily during Sony's PSP spotlight. Other Square games of note include Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, and Final Fantasy XIV..

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days Trailer Looks Kinda Messed Up

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days' selling-point is that it looks a little messed-up

While Sony's in-house development studios continually push each other to raise the graphical bar time after time, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days aims to make everything low-res. It's all for dramatic effect of course, and it looks great. Check the latest trailer after the jump. <object id="gtembed"..

New Kingdom Hearts Game To Be Revealed At E3, Claims Nomura

Megaton? For some we assume

Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura has just announced that there's a new Kingdom Hearts on the cards... And it will be announced as soon as next week, during E3. No word on platforms (please be Playstation) or anything else at this point. Last week it was revealed that Nomura would be making the trip to the big gaming show in the US, now we know why. So if Kingdom Hearts is..

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Trailer Is Probably One Of The Best You're Likely To See

You can have no affinity with the Deus Ex franchise

No excitement for the upcoming title. Even no love for video games at all. But it's impossible to not be excited by this trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which screams high-budget from every inch of its production. The sweeping synth-lines, the wonderful opening, the big spider robot things. Oh goodness. It's coming in 2011. We're going for..

Thief 4 Almost Certainly Coming To The Playstation 3

A Tweet from the official Playstation Twitter account has all but confirmed that Thief 4 is coming to the Playstation 3

The Tweet, which simply states "Oh Man" before directing to a Thief 4 placeholder page, was posted last night. The placeholder page has been around for a while, and it certainly has been updated. But the Playstation Tweet was certainly meant to have people guessing, and..

Tetsuya Nomura To Make An E3 Appearance

Siliconera's reporting, via Shinji Hashimoto, that Tetsuya Nomura - of Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy Versus XIII fame - is set to make an appearance at E3

Of course, that's set message boards alight as to what he'll be doing there. Could it be Final Fantasy Versus XIII? Will he be at Sony or Microsoft's show? We're guessing it won't be the latter as Nomura's already stated he'd cut off his arm if..

Don't Let Wada's Comments About Final Fantasy Versus XIII Keep You Up Tonight

We know - you had a horrible night's sleep

You just couldn't stop thinking about what Square Enix gaffer Yoichi Wada said yesterday. Your eyes are bleary but still the quote replays in your mind, “We’ll be looking into [bringing Final Fantasy Versus XIII to the XBOX 360] internally until right before the formal announcement.” You're scared, tired and lonely. Good job we've got the equivalent of..

Ruh-Roh: Square Enix "Looking Into" Final Fantasy Versus XIII Release On XBOX 360

Many Playstation faithfuls believe that the XBOX 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII made that game what it was: very linear and very stream-lined

We don't believe that was the case. However, we were averse to the XBOX 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII purely because of the way Microsoft handled it. Apparently, such is their insecurity, whatever they can share with Sony is massive win on their part..

Hey Look, Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light Really Is Taking A Different Direction

We've obviously known about Crystal Dynamics' downloadable Lara Croft adventure for a while; but no amount of preparation had us readied for this trailer

It's just weird. A Lara Croft game that's: a) downloadable; b) isometric; c) co-operative... What's going on? It does look rather pretty mind. They've still got to sell us though. It's just — weird. We'll maintain an open-mind.

Do you have any expectations for the upcoming Playstation Portable shooter The 3rd Birthday from Square Enix? Nope, probably not

Square Enix has just dropped an extended trailer for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days - their upcoming co-operative shooter with a twist

Much of the trailer includes footage we've covered before, but there is a good chunk of new stuff too so it's worth a look. Besides, the game's actually looking like it might be a lot of fun, particularly with its Cloverfield presentation.

We hinted at it a few days ago, but Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy IX will be making the short journey over to the PSN. It was confirmed by Square Enix president Yoichi Wada via the firm's Japanese Twitter page. It wouldn't make sense not to put it on there, given how well both Final Fantasy VII and VIII have sold on Sony's digital service. We imagine the game..

Well, that's good then, because Avalanche has claimed that people “shouldn’t be surprised” to see a Just Cause 3. “I think there are a lot of connections with [Avalanche and] the IP,” Avalanche's boss Christofer Sundberg said, “and so..
