It's the American Revolution
Clearly tired of all the leaks, Ubisoft has come right out and revealed the boxart for Assassin’s Creed III. As anticipated, it shows the American Revolution. Expect more details about the sequel to emerge at the Games Developers Conference next week.
Fiery tennis legend, John McEnroe, will head up the cover of the global version of Grand Slam Tennis 2, publisher EA Sports has announced
The argumentative legend will be joined by current top-dog Novak Djokovic and female favourite Maria Sharapova. There's no room for Andy Murray on the UK cover. The cover will differ across Europe, with France getting Jo-Wilfred Tsonga, Novak Djokovic and Rafael..
With the PlayStation Vita due out in less than 24 hours in Japan, we're starting to get a slow and steady trickle of news and information
The littlest details are always the most fascinating. Take for example the PlayStation Vita's boxes — just how big are they? ShopTo News has got your back, with a selection of images comparing the PS Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 to a variety of..
Good boxart should summarise a game's contents in a single image
Lollipop Chainsaw's front-cover does exactly that. The artwork shows protagonist Juliet Starling clutching at a chainsaw with her beheaded companion key-fob dangling from her waist. In the background are high-school lockers with zombies inside. Pretty much tells you everything you need to know. The Grasshopper Manufacture developed..
Fans of flashy combat, prepare to be excited: Capcom has formally announced the Devil May Cry HD Collection for release on PlayStation 3 next year
The compilation package will bundle all three PS2 Devil May Cry titles remastered in high-definition. Yes, that includes Devil May Cry 2. You can probably skip replaying that one if you want to. You'll miss out on earning new trophies if you do though,..
Drink it up readers
This is the packaging your shiny new PlayStation Vita will be contained within when you pick up the hardware next year. Sony's European PlayStation Vita product manager, Adam Grant, unveiled the boxart on the PlayStation Blog this morning. In addition, Grant's outlined each of the PlayStation Vita's on-board apps. The post doesn't contain anything we don't already know, but it's..
In addition to two new character teasers, Capcom's released the boxart for its upcoming cross-over brawler Street Fighter X Tekken
The packshot focuses on Ryu and Chun-Li from the Street Fighter side, and Kazuya and Nina Williams from the Tekken side. It's embedded above, y'know, in case you didn't notice it while scrolling.</em>
.. Albeit in shoddy low resolution, but you totally get the idea right? Tekken Hybrid is a PlayStation 3 exclusive game plus movie bundle, that features Tekken Tag Tournament HD, CG movie Tekken: Blood Vengeance and a demo for the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It does that blue/red gradient thing that virtually every other boxart does these days. What's with that?</em>
England stars Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere will appear on the front-cover of FIFA 12, EA has announced
The Arsenal midfielder will join Manchester United's forward for the UK, Ireland, Scandinavian and Middle East versions. It's Rooney's seventh appearance on the game's cover.
We recently got word that ex-PSN title Rayman Orgins had been upgraded to a full retail release
Now Amazon's revealed the game's place-holder boxart. And it's amazing. The online retailer is touting a release date of November 15th for the throwback platformer. We don't think there's any way such an unusual game will release slap-bang in the middle of the holidays, but hey, stranger things have..
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"..
Three times world champion Ronnie O' Sullivan is to be the face of Dark Energy Sports' upcoming PS3 title, World Snooker Championship Real 2011
The developer promises the game is "the most realistic snooker experience yet seen on home console and PC". All the usual features are being touted: real players, real venues, real tournaments. Dark Energy Sports really like that word..
Sony's released boxart for the just-announced Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
In fact, the game is already available for pre-order at some retailers. Seems a bit crazy pre-ordering a game this early, but we'll understand if you get swept up into the hype. It is Uncharted after all.</em>
Scrawl's managed to grab hold of the US boxart for Yakuza 4
It's actually proper amazing. Which is surprisingly, considering the utter atrocity that was Yakuza 3's cover. Thanks for learning your lesson SEGA. We forgive all. If you missed the new trailer this morning, you can grab it through here.
Here's your first glimpse at the European packaging for a bunch of PlayStation Move launch titles
The pack shots come courtesy of French site Gamekyo, who somehow managed to get hold of the job-lot. We're not too hot on the "You'll Need These" logo on the front of the boxes, but we guess it gets the job done. Perhaps the most notable point of discussion comes on the Sly Cooper Collection..
This Fallout: New Vegas boxart is not drab in the sense that it is boring - it's relatively stylish and eye-catching in fact
It's just drab in so much as it sums up what you're likely find within the game. Dark, rough, empty environments laced with annoyingly animated creatures. We liked Fallout 3 but, c'mon, it had more than its fair share of issues didn't it? One being that it was just boring in..
Look, we're British
We're sorry. When someone says football we think of the sport where you, y'know, play with your feet. Not that other game people call football that's absolutely not football. Take the cover for Madden 11, which features Drew Brees (apparently). It shows the man holding a ball in his hand. Football. Mmmhm. We wanted to tell you more about the cover of Madden 11, but Joystiq seems..
So, what you're trying to tell me is that Modnation Racers is a game about driving cars in ridiculously colourful environments and sticking stickers? Word
</em> <em>Sony's also confirmed that the game's hitting the US on May 18th, with a European release planned for the same week.</em>
Hooray. GamersMint are reporting (via French sources) that the European God Of War III boxart has been finalised and is, well, an updated version of the boxart we really, really wanted last year. We're waiting on word from SCEE but, chances are, there's no-one in the office right now! We posted a potential US box here.
What's with American boxart being so rubbish? First Heavy Rain, now Yakuza 3
The super stylish Japanese boxart has been replaced by a red background and an uber close-up of the protagonist's face. Rubbish. To be fair, the art has only shown up on GameFly so may just be a placeholder. We hope so. Here's the Japanese box.
The Heavy Rain website is now live [read: was, seems to be having some server issues at time of writing - Ed], and features a pretty cool online murder mystery called "Four Days", beginning on January 26th
There'll be daily tasks for you to complete, and some cool exclusive content; but most importantly: no spoilers. If you register at the site you'll get a free Home t-shirt that may just be..
Eagle-eyed IndianVideoGamers have found what they believe to be the US boxart for God Of War III
While kinda awesome, we preferred the "other" boxart that was tentatively shown off earlier in the year, but we did assume Sony would opt for a picture of Kratos looking angry.
You know the European boxart for Heavy Rain
It's bloody brilliant, isn't it? All that rain and, erm, origami. Cool. The recently announced US boxart, yeah, erm, that's not so great. It kinda looks like a straight-to-rental B-movie; which isn't so hot. Also, it's distressing how clearly this is aimed at a mainstream American audience. It's after the jump if you really want to see it.
There are tons of more exciting things said about Gran Turismo 5's cover art on the Playstation Blog, so we recommend petrol-heads head over there for their fix of Gran Turismo discussion
But while you leave PushSquare a cold, dank, environment of non-car afficianados (we like cars plenty, but not that much) allow us to discuss the game's cover art from an artistic stance: stunning.
Would you like to see a white box with a picture of Final Fantasy XIII protagonist and the game's logo? Well that's exactly what you're going to see on store shelves come March 9th
And well, there's nothing else to say is there. It's a box. With not much on it.
So if you really hated the old fugly Playstation 3 "Greatest Hits" cases - remind yourself here - know that, alongside the new PS3 hardware, logo and boxart -- the Greatest Hits cases have gotten a bit classier
Actually they're kinda yum. We'd feel happy to buy one of these.
This is some tentative boxart for God Of War III
Did you notice, it's absolutely brilliant! Well, you'll need to hit the jump to see the full thing (we gotta save on bandwidth folks!) but look at it. Just look at it. It's intense. We really, really, really hope Sony don't change it. Award for best boxart ever?
Does anyone our there not have a Playstation 3? Ok, a few of you then
Do any of you really want to buy Need For Speed Shift as your first game when you eventually buy a PS3? Ok, one of you. Sweet, then this bundle is for you. A 250GB Playstation 3 Slim with a copy of Need For Speed Shift. Perfect, eh? Loving the box art.
Ratchet & Clank: Tools Of Destruction is one of our favourite Playstation 3 games to date
We've beaten countless times and we just can't wait for Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time to ramp up the story. Insomniac have showcased the game's boxart today. It's darn attention grabbing we think. We can't wait to see where the story takes Ratchet & co.
Here's the FIFA 10 boxart for the UK
Featuring the faces of Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Chelsea's Frank Lampard and Arsenal's Theo Walcott. Gone is Ronaldhino into the realms of mid-life mediocrity. Other regions will get an alternative cover (Schweinsteiger is on the German cover for example). No doubt a range of people are pissed about the player inclusions on this years cover (as they are..
Here's the boxart for Gran Turismo PSP
We're told that's Chevrolet's Corvette ZR1 on the cover. We wouldn't know like, we just read it over on GTPlanet. Course most of us won't ever see the boxart because we'll be buying the game as a Digital Download from the PSN for our shiny new PSP Go.
