The winners of the E3 Game Critics Awards 2010 have been announced
Nintendo's 3DS handheld managed to scoop the coveted "Best Of Show" award, while PS3 titles Portal 2 and Rage walked away with two awards a piece. God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta scooped the "Best Handheld" award, while Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood got the best...
The Game Critics' Best Of E3 2010 nominations have got out, with a variety of this year's stand-out titles listed
While it's a particularly strong showing, our heart goes out to Guerrilla Games who were given nothing but praise for Killzone 3 throughout this year's showing and have seemingly been pipped at the post. LittleBigPlanet 2 is also notably...
As announced during Sony's E3 press conference, those unable to visit E3 for real were able to enjoy a meticulous recreation of the Sony booth via Sony's digital world, PlayStation Home
Turns out, that was quite a successful move. As much as people like to rag on Sony's totally free online service, it's got quite a following. In fact, according to...
Yakuza is a franchise firmly fixed in familiarity
Of the three Yakuza games that have launched on the PlayStation in the past, not much has changed. Yakuza 4 hasn't changed much either - instead it's tweaked one pivotal element that separates it from its predecessors. Here, Kazuma Kiryu is no longer the lead protagonist - instead he shares that...
Somewhere amongst the E3 hustle and bustle, we managed to skip on posting one of the things we're most excited for: the new Silent Hill game
Despite not having a full title yet, this lengthy trailer for the tentatively named Silent Hill 8 goes pretty in-depth into the latest Silent Hill's psyche. The game appears to revolve around a group of prisoners who end up in the ever so pleasant town of..
According to a report on PS3Hype
nl</a>, recognised Dutch reporter, Jan Meijroos, dropped a Tweet this week regarding something he'd overheard on the E3 show-floor. Apparently some Sony developers were talking about how "amazing" Uncharted 3 looks, presumably at its early stage of development. We expect nothing less from the Uncharted franchise, and anticipate an announcement later..
I was right
I went on a record a couple of times before E3, stating vigorously that it would be unlikely we'd see a new PSP. We didn't. Probably a good thing - with all the hype surrounding Nintendo's 3DS, it would have taken something special to top that. But it raises a question of its own. I had speculated that Sony might dramatically drop the...
Perhaps the most fitting word to describe our reaction to the new-look Cole in inFamous 2. The once gruff-voiced egg-head with electric powers had seemingly been replaced by the cover-star of the next Skate game - a brusque, handsome looking extreme sports star who Sucker Punch describe as being "inspired by Tony Hawk". Beyond the...
thatgamecompany's flower made us feel empowered like no other game
There's a moment, nearing the end of the game's relatively short campaign, where you guide your team of petals up an angled high-way. That moment is unlike any other we've ever experienced in a video game - there's a sensation of pure, unbridled freedom. It touches on pretense, but...
A few months back we learned, with some disappointment, that Dark Energy Digital's episodic water-physics driven title, Hydrophobia, would be an XBOX 360 exclusive
We were understandably gutted but we should have known better. Like most XBOX 360 exclusives, the game's not really an exclusive to the true definition of the word. It's timed, and it's...
Killzone 3 does a lot of stuff
It does 3D. It does PlayStation Move. It does multiplayer. It's pretty much a technical show-piece of everything PlayStation 3. As such, its boxart is suitably loaded with pictures, graphics and logos representing its compatibility with various PlayStation features. It still looks awesome though. The game's due in February.
Twisted Metal is one of the oldest, most recognisable PlayStation franchises out there
Despite being shunned aside by bigger franchise power-houses in PlayStation's history (the likes of Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid), Sony's E3 press conference spelled out quite categorically that Twisted Metal is truly back in bombastic style...
Truly, truly bonkers. With most games this generation unable to stick to 60 frames per second and stuggling to meet 720p — Gran Turismo 5 is a technical marvel hitting 60fps constantly, and reaching the dizzying heights of 1080p. But there's more. As per a video interview with GameTrailers, SCEA's Chris Hinojosa-Miranda confirms that the 3D version of Gran Turismo 5 will also stick to..
VG247 are reporting tonight that the Sly Cooper Collection - an HD re-release of the original three PlayStation 2 Sly titles - will release here in Europe this November
Many believed the release of the Sly Cooper Collection would be delayed here in Europe, as was the case with the God Of War Collection, but thankfully that's not going to be the case. Sony's also confirmed that the Collection will..
It's taken half-a-decade, but Polyphony Digital are now just months away from lifting the lid on their masterpiece; Gran Turismo 5 launches this November
With a budget so high even Kazunori Yamauchi won't disclose, and attention to detail so cute you can see the individual screws of its roster's door panels - Gran Turismo 5, like its predecessors,...
One of the most zany, unusual things to happen during Sony's E3 press conference, was the appearance of PlayStation's very own marketing mascot - Kevin Butler
And while he had a few scathing words to say about the competition, Butler's speech was more about hitting the line that PlayStation Move is for everyone — whether you're a "core" gamer or "casual" gamer. That seems to..
Konami's confirmed that Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow will launch on the PlayStation 3 this Fall
The game's in development over at Mercury Steam, but is being overlooked by Hideo Kojima and his crew at Kojima Productions. (It kinda looks a lot like God Of War.) We've embedded some footage after the jump.
If you were worried that last week's Mortal Kombat reveal looked a bit tame, we've embedded a montage after the jump that may just cause you to bring back your breakfast
Well, not quite, but know that Mortal Kombat is indeed back, for real this time. The footage comes via ScrewAttack, and looks kind of ridiculous. It's gory, it's gross, it's a bit stupid. That's exactly what we wanted right? Hell..
Are you a complete tight-wad? Fair enough, "times are tough"
Do you want some PlayStation Move action though? Maybe a bit of SOCOM 4 or Resident Evil 5. Well, if you really don't want to drop the muller on the Navigation controller, Sony's confirmed the DualShock will work as a simple substitute. Of course, you'll still need the PlayStation Move controller and the Eye Toy camera to get going, but..
Konami's revealed that a new Silent Hill game is currently in development at Vatra
The game's due to release sometime next year. The press release notes the following on the game's storyline:The survival horror experience begins after a prison transport vehicle careens off the road, leaving lone inmate Murphy Pendleton stranded in Silent Hill. Gamers will encounter mind-bending puzzles, as well..
The Alice In Chains soundtrack is pumping and the action's in slow-mo -- it must be a trailer for 2K's upcoming cinematic shooter, Spec Ops: The Line
Looks like they're really pushing the style angle in this desert based shooter — everytime we've seen it the trailers have been swish. Differentiation is a good thing with so many familiar looking shooters on the horizon. This looks like one of the..
Kazunori Yamauchi has reassured readers of CVG that they should not expect any more delays from Gran Turismo 5
The website caught up with Kazunori on the E3 show-floor, stating a firm "Yes" with thumbs-up in response to the question: "No more delays?". Relax guys, it's coming this November.
Square Enix's The 3rd Birthday has been missing in action so long, that some were beginning to question its existence
But the game made a dramatic reappearance last night during Sony's E3 2010 press conference — and embedded above is what we saw. No date on the Parasite Eve spin-off just yet, hopefully it'll be out this year, though.
Perhaps the biggest story overshadowing Sony's E3 press conference last night was not what was showed, but what wasn't -- most notably Team Ico's The Last Guardian
Sony's Scott Rohde's has explained that the game's absence was due to timing and nothing more. The SCEA man told 1Up: The best way I can answer that is something that Sony does and were very proud of this is that were going..
Media Molecule's Pete Smith and Lee Cubin have detailed in a video interview with 1Up that a beta for the massively ambitious LittleBigPlanet 2 is coming "fairly soon"
The interview also features some new footage from the game, which is obviously a big "yay" from us. We've embedded the video after the jump. Hit it up. <object id="flashObj"..
We're a sucker for Time Crisis
We just can't help it. We even bought the dodgy iPhone version — a touch screen version; we know, it's mad, without a gun it's not even Time Crisis. But it had Time Crisis written on it, so we bought it. Therefore, one particularly title hidden among Sony's PlayStation Move montage caused a minor squeel to utter from between our pursed lips: Time Crisis: Razing..
If you missed last night's Sony press conference, you missed history
You've probably already heard that Mr. Gabe Newell of Valve - a.k.a. PlayStation's biggest troll - debuted Portal 2 there, after a rousing apology to PlayStation fans. Before showing off Portal 2, Newell declared that because of the open-nature of the PlayStation platform, SteamWorks would make the PS3 SKU of the game the best..
Hey readers, do you like Gran Turismo 5? Odds are, you probably do, and still have a few tears in your eyes from Sony's November 2nd date-bomb just last night
Now you know the date though, you're probably turning your attention to a collector's edition, right? Well, Sony's just detailed it. The Gran Turismo 5 collector's edition in the US will run you $99.99 - but despite the high price, you get a..
Sony's reportedly confirmed to VG247 that they will be re-releasing Heavy Rain later this year with PlayStation Move support
As yet there's no date for the re-release, but it seems like a good Move (geddit?) for Sony to make. Heavy Rain ended up having a surprising amount of mainstream appeal, and it once again secures the PlayStation Move as a control mechanic not solely targeting the Wii-too..
Sony's just dropped a fact-sheet in our inbox providing all the content details for their PlayStation Move controller
There's a lot of games coming too, be they ones that you may already own in some capacity, or completely new titles. We've dropped the list after the jump. You can get pricing and release information through here. First-Party Titles Beat Sketcher (Fall 2010) SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy..
Kratos is back
Again. And while this trailer for Ready At Dawn's upcoming PlayStation Portable hack-and-slash is incredibly light, it's the kind of debut trailer we've come to expect for a God Of War game. From what we've seen of God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta, it's shaping up very nicely. If you want technical spectacle from your PSP (who doesn't), then you're going to get it here.
Namco's confirmed that the delicious Pac-Man reboot, Pac-Man Championship Edition, is set to make the jump across to PSP and PS3 via Sony's PlayStation Minis service
The Minis due this fall, and should land alongside the full PlayStation Network release of Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. So, basically, plenty of Pac-Man for your PlayStation this...
Journey is pretty much everything you've come to expect from thatgamecompany, the folks who brought you flower
Despite the somewhat covert announcement (c'mon Sony, this should have been mentioned in your press conference), Journey promises "simple gameplay and accessible controls." Naturally it looks super pretty to boot. We're getting an ICO-esque vibe. Interestingly, Journey is an..
You can't beat a good re-release -- and with 3D and HD upscaling, the Sly Cooper Collection looks to be exactly that
While we were a bit disappointed by the lack of a Team ICO collection last night, this Sly Cooper Collection's looking very pretty indeed. The Sly games were good, so we're excited.
SEGA's confirmed that Valkyria Chronicles 2 will launch on the PlayStation Portable this August 31st in North America
The game will be available on UMD and digital download from the PlayStation Store simultaneously.
Fanboy overload -- you're telling me that Heroes On The Move features Ratchet, Jak and Sly Cooper? Hell yes
Still not entirely sure what the game's all about, but it definitely features PlayStation Move and we're definitely excited — we've been waiting for a PlayStation mascot "get-together" for some time. Here's hoping Sackboy cameos.
Sony's announced that they're to release this rather rad looking all-in-one surround sound system for the PlayStation 3
The solitary sound bar uses Sony's S-Force PRO Front Surround Sound to create some, presumably, deep sounds without the expense, space consumption and hassle of a full surround sound set. It actually looks cool, we're kinda tempted. No pounds sterling prices as yet, but Sony has..
One-time PlayStation 3 oddball, Pityoma, has been announced for release on the PlayStation Portable this summer
The game's essentially a puzzle-title with a twist involving eggs and hens. It's a "chain the colours" affair at its core though. Still, seems like the type of game that's perfect for the PSP, right? Right.
SCEE's announced that a demo for Everybody's Tennis will hit the PlayStation Store today
The game's due later this year, but the demo should give you a taste of what to expect from the tennis RPG. We love tennis games (too much), so we're excited. We kinda wished this was a PlayStation Move title though.
Despite rumours claiming Patapon 3 was about to make the jump to the big-screen, Sony's revealed that the latest iteration in the rhythmn RPG is set to release on the PSP
This time, the game's all about playing with friends via ad-hoc or Internet Infrastructure, a pretty big change to the franchise. There are even competitive modes in this new...
Gamerzines has your first look at PlayStation Move's packaging here in Europe
While the stand-alone peripherals for the PlayStation Move controller and Navigation Controller fit in-line with other PlayStation peripherals, the Move Starter Kit packaging is a bit more bold and in-your face. Doesn't look particularly offensive to us. Pricing seems good too, with Amazon sticking a single wand at..
MotorStorm games have always been fun
But we honestly couldn't imagine how they could get more fun than Pacific Rift. That game, for us, is the pinnacle of arcade racing. But that's why we're not game designers, and developers Evolution Studios are. The answer, of course, was to include falling buildings. And plenty of falling buildings there are in MotorStorm: Apocalypse.
Every motion controller needs a good light-gun docking station, right? (Apart from Microsoft's Kinect, 'cos you are the controller - pew
pew!) Well PlayStation Move's kicks some serious ass. Kinda. Sure, it's sorta a shameless play on what Nintendo did with the Wii Zapper - but look at it! It looks like it came straight out of a flippin' sci-fi movie. Do want. The Move Zapper will be compatible..
The pitch: you're an office worker, riding an standard office chair down a hill, trying to escape the Japanese mafia
Yep, we wish we were getting more games out of you this generation, Japan Studio. Still, Kung-Fu Rider looks brilliant.
Sony's confirmed that their under-rated augmented reality release, Eye Pet, is headed to the PlayStation Portable
Looks like there are a host of familiar features to the PlayStation 3 version. This actually looks super cute and we kind of want it. We love the PS3 version of the game. If only Sony dropped the price of the PSP, we're convinced a good bundle of this would literally fly off shelves.
During Sony's press conference last night, they revealed that David Jaffe and his team at Eat Sleep Play are indeed working on a new Twisted Metal game, with much of the original team still intact
With an on-stage Sweet Tooth, Jaffe and co demoed some of Twisted Metal's new 16-player multiplayer features. An exciting new addition to the franchise is the inclusion of helicopters, so you'll be..
So what is all that PlayStation Plus stuff anyway? If you're confused, Sony's launched this handy little web portal to let you know a little more
PlayStation Plus is an extension to the PlayStation Network experience. While the standard (free) PlayStation Network experience will remain unchanged, PlayStation Plus will include additional features such as game give-aways, early access to betas and..
It's finally coming
Gran Turismo 5's releasing this November 2nd, as revealed at the end of this uber-stylish trailer shown at the end of Sony's press conference. Does it look rad? Hell yeah it looks rad. We're stoked.
Guerrilla Games has revealed that Killzone 3 will launch exclusively on the PlayStation 3 this coming February 2011
The game will feature both 3D integration, and PlayStation Move as an option control mechanic.
Sony's rattled off a series of 2010 releases (and updated favourites) that are set to get PlayStation Move support this year
Games include: Time Crisis, Singstar Dance, Echochrome 2, Eyepet, Heavy rain, Resident Evil 5, Bruswick Bowling, Fight Night, Sports Champions, Move Party, Eyepet Heroes On The Move, Socom 4, The Shoot, Tron and Sorcery. We're not going to link them all — haha. Gotta be..
Sony's confirmed (in a round-about fashion) that Sly Cooper will be getting the re-release treatment, as part of a Sly Cooper Collection
The game will be playable in 3D thanks to the PlayStation 3's stereoscopic technology. Hot. The game's on the show floor so we'll get impressions soon.
Sony's revealed Sorcery, a new PlayStation Move title about wizards and goblins
The game uses the PlayStation Move to map directly to the game protagonist's wand. This allows you to cast a host of spells and manipulate the world in a number of unique ways. It looks supremely polished, and a definite stand-out in the PlayStation Move library. You really need to see the demonstration in action to..
Sony's just revealed Heroes On The Move for the PlayStation 3 tonight, a game which brings your favourite PS3 mascots (Jak, Daxter, Ratchet, Clank, Sly) all into one game
A trailer was shown but we'd need to see more to get a grasp on how the gameplay handles. It'll work with the PlayStation Move though.
Ignoring the "head-in-the-sand" approach of Microsoft Kinect's pricing, Sony announced tonight that PlayStation Move will launch in September
Europe will get the device on September 15th, while the US will have to wait a few days until September 19th. Japan will get it on October 21st. The magical part of the announcement was when Sony announced the price-points. While it'll cost you $99.99 to get..
Miss the big PlayStation show tonight? Well you bloody missed out then, didn't you? What's your excuse? North Korea vs
Brazil? Pfft, lame. Just because we're nice, we'll let you know what you missed, but geez - call yourself PlayStation fans? We're ashamed. But worse of all - Kevin Butler's ashamed. Yeah, we went there. Gran Turismo 5 Launches November 2nd In The US Twisted Metal Announced For..
First of all, don't worry
If you don't want to pay, the PlayStation Network (as you know it) is going to be completely free. Alas, for those of you who do want to pay, Sony's announced the new PlayStation Plus service, which will cost just $49.99 (49.99/¥5,000) a year. You'll also be able to pay for a three month subscription, which will cost...
As part of their E3 press conference tonight, Sony showcased Sucker Punch's upcoming inFamous 2 with a brand new trailer
And it looks completely amazing. The new look Cole's definitely grown on us, and seems to fit with inFamous' new city.
If you're big enough to apologise for the things you've said about the PlayStation 3, Gabe Newell, we're big enough to apologise to you
We're sorry. In what turned out to be one of the biggest megatons of E3 so far, Gabe Newell announced that Portal 2 is coming to PlayStation 3 and will be enhanced by SteamWorks, making it the "best version of the game available on consoles." Get this —..
The day you never thought was coming
.. Is coming. Sony's just announced, alongside a rip-roaring trailer, that Gran Turismo 5 will launch on the PlayStation 3 this coming November 2nd. That's this year. Yep, Gran Turismo 5 finally (finally!) has a release date, folks. It'll also launch with full support for 3D.
We're smiling. We're super-excited. Sony's E3 2010 press conference is upon us, and we're getting excited. Sammy'll be on Tweeting right the way through Sony's press conference with live reaction to every announcement made, so if you want to know what we think of everything PlayStation, jump over to our Twitter account for that. Then,...
Square Enix has just let us know that we should expect a new Final Fantasy XIV trailer tonight
The trailer's due about 10PM BST, and, in all likelihood, will debut during Sony's E3 press conference this evening. Apparently it's 3 minutes long. S'all we know for now!
Square Enix has released the E3 trailer for the upcoming PSP prequel Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep
The game is set before the original Kingdom Hearts which launched in 2002 on the PlayStation 2. No doubt this game will feature hevily in Sony's PSP montage footage this evening.
Kotaku's reporting, via a retail source, that Sony are set to lift the lid on Twisted Metal X and a brand new Patapon title for the PlayStation 3 tonight
Apparently, Twisted Metal X and Patapon 3 are as legit as it gets — with the latter seeming very likely due to a SCEJ countdown we posted earlier in the week. Additionally, Kotaku speculate that Eye Pet is set to make the jump to the PSP, while..
Sounds like Sony are targeted the upgraded PlayStation 2 collection market pretty hard
We got whiff of a Sly Cooper Collection this morning, but according to reports coming out of VG247 two other games will get the HD re-release treatment. The heavily anticipated Team ICO re-release is expected to make up half of the announcement — while the third game remains a complete mystery. We're putti
Ubisoft's bringing Rayman back to franchise's roots. Rayman: Origins will release on the PlayStation Network at an unannounced date. It looks absolutely drop-dead gorgeous to boot. It's being worked on by Ubisoft's legendary developer Michael Ancel, who gave birth to both the Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil franchises. Consider us stoked...
Remember Another World? Yeah, we do too
It was designed and developed by a French dude called Eric Chahi. Folks, now he's back. That's right - Chahi is working on a new downloadable title for the PlayStation 3 called Project Dust. Chahi's been missing from the game's industry for a good while (something like 12 years), but this project - which is to...
.. We're in heaven — DJ Hero 2 has been officially announced and now, via Joystiq, we've got some early details on the game's set-list. Activision's outrageously expensive E3 party - which featured performances from Usher, NERD, Chris Cornell, Tool's Maynard Keenan and Jane's Addiction - also featured plenty of DJ Hero 2, with the lists of artists we've placed after the jump all due to make an..
Ubisoft's just released the debut teaser trailer for their upcoming Driver: San Francisco franchise reboot
The game sets the scene for the game's lead protagonist, John Tanner, and his arch-rival Jericho. It's a great mood setter. Consider our attention piqued.
Kojima Productions' website has just updated, featuring Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow and
.. a mysterious question-mark. Kojima formally revealed the first trailer of Metal Gear Solid: Rising during Microsoft's press conference last night and it looked incredible. Alas, it appears the show is far from over for Kojima-san, who will probably have one reveal left in him. While..
Square Enix would like you to know about Mindjack, a new action shooter for PlayStation 3 developed by Japanese studio feelplus
As the title suggests, the game is all about hacking into people's minds. Hack into the minds of the enemy and you can have them do your bidding — but if you're not quick enough, prepare to have your own mind hacked. It sounds like a clever concept, but we're not sure..
A blurry photograph taken by the folks at 1Up appears to reveal the presence of a Sly Cooper Collection for PS3
Yes! The poster not only hints at the re-emergence of Mr. Cooper, but also the fact that his PS2 adventures will now be playable in three dimensions. That's right folks, Sly Cooper's getting the full stereoscopic 3D treatment. Rumours swirling the 'net suggest Sly Cooper won't be the only..
Sorry, we switched off during Peter Moore's presentation of EA Sports MMA during EA's press conference last night
Does it look dull? Hell yeah it looks dull. But that's only because we're not the intended audience. Sure we like the UFC games — they're fine. But they don't exactly fill us with blistering excitement. For those that care: EA Sports MMA is coming out October 19th on the PlayStation..
EA confirmed during their press conference last night that their upcoming Medal Of Honor reboot would be getting a multiplayer beta starting June 21st
Players will get access to two maps and will be playable on the PlayStation 3. EA also revealed a new rewards system for fans of shooter games — the "Gun Club" will provide members with benefits including in-game content, early access to..
The European arm of the PlayStation Blog has uploaded this rather charming little interview with Alex Evans and Mark Healey from Media Molecule
There's not really any new gossip in there - though we're sure that's to follow tomorrow - but, alas, if you love LittleBigPlanet as much as we do, this is well worth a watch.
If you like Call Of Duty (you probably do) and Eminem (you probably do), then you're going to dig Treyarch's new trailer for Call Of Duty: Black Ops, which features a mix of both
The tune's called "Won't Back Down" and it's from Eminem's new record "Recovery". We dig it. Check out more Call Of Duty: Black Ops through here.
Hold us. Alongside their weekly update, team SingStar's revealed "some very exciting announcements from SingStar at this weeks E3." This wouldn't have anything to do with a little rumour we posted earlier would it? That's right, sounds like SingStar: Dance is on the cards. We like some SingStar, so in normal circumstances we'd be hyped. But...
The term "moneyhat" has long been used in conjunction with Microsoft, and indeed, businesses in general
But I believe, tonight, we saw the true meaning of the term. With a two-hour showing barely raising a muted clap at Microsoft's press conference tonight, we were treated to a range of mediocre to decent to downright poor presentations for the...
Update @ 17:16BST - we've included the game's E3 trailer above
Looks exactly as you'd expect a game called "Dungeon Hunter" to look. Original Story: Details are pretty scarce right now, but our buddies over at PlayStation Lifestyle have got word that the Gameloft announcement teased earlier is a new PlayStation Network exclusive called...
Look, he's got Wolverine claws
Look, he moves pretty realistically. Kinect body tracking - whut? All thoughts that passed in and out of our mind as we watched IGN's Greg Miller demonstrate this rather impressive looking PlayStation Move tech demo. We've embedded it above for your convenience. We're nice like that.
Gameloft's been busy teasing and Tweeting that they're on the verge of making a major PlayStation 3 announcement today
No word on what the announcement might be yet, but given Gameloft's credentials we're going to guess it's something to do with the PlayStation Minis service. Perhaps they've got a whole onslaught of new Minis to release? Guess we'll...
EA's released a new developer video which highlights FIFA 11's new Personality+ features
The new features' purpose is to give variation between players of different skills, and the tech demos EA have to show off are very impressive. One example shows a player of low skill turning on the ball and scuffing his shot into the ground, where a more skillful player is able to turn and volley the ball into..
We love Assassin's Creed trailers
They're amazing. This CGI teaser for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is no exception, revealing Ezio's no-longer a lone-wolf, as he calls on the Brotherhood to kick some serious ass. Consider us ridiculously excited for this game; Assassin's Creed II was a masterpiece. The trailer concludes with a November 16th date, which confirms the release window for the game in..
The first Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was packed with decent ideas, but lacked the polish to really execute on them
Lucasarts will be hoping to nail the mix of close-quarters melee combat and physics-heavy super powers with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. Even at this early stage, it's looking infinitely more polished than the original game. After the great cinematic trailer, we're starting to..
THQ's literally just announced that the hit Wii franchise, de Blob, will be making the jump to the PlayStation 3 with its latest iteration: de Blob 2: The Underground
YES! The new game's set to build on the paint-driven foundations of the original Wii game, and will even include 3D support. We are thrilled to expand the world of de Blob into high-definition and 3D gaming with an entertaining..
Crytek's just revealed that Crysis 2 will be one of the first multiplatform titles to be playable in 3D
The game will join Killzone 3, amongst the ranks of the first FPS titles to support the television industry's latest push. "The success of 3-D movies like Avatar and the introduction of 3-D TVs from the hardware manufacturers tells us that this is the next big movement in entertainment,..
Rumours filtering out of E3 suggest that Sony are on the verge of announcing some updated PlayStation 3 hardware
The news, via CVG, suggests that Sony are set to announce a 500GB PlayStation 3 SKU, with a PlayStation Move set bundled inside. Additionally, the report notes that the hardware will include an updated version of the PS3's network card. Current models include the slower 802.11 b/g card,..
Sounds like Activision's planning the E3 party to end all E3 parties -- with a rumoured $6million event on the cards
Held inside the Staples Centre (actually, y'know, inside it), word is Activision's enlisted the likes of Lady GaGa, Usher, Jane's Addiction, and - according to his Twitter page - Eminem for the LA based event. Madness. VG247 also speculate there will be a skate-ramp with Tony Hawk..
Oooooooh man, DJ Hero 2 is a real product, and it sounds kind of amazing
Like literally sounds amazing. Leaked mixes include a Deadmau5 reimagining of Lady GaGa's "Just Dance" and some remixed Pussycat Dolls. It also looks like Activision are going for more of a party feel with DJ Hero 2, offering karaoke lyrics at the top of the screen. But, as you know, DJ Hero is really all about the..
A newly opened US portion of the official PlayStation website, has caused the Internet to explode with new rumours regarding fresh PlayStation hardware
The website reads: The E3 2010 Expo is coming! Meet us here to find out what awesome PlayStation games and hardware are being revealed. We'll have exclusive articles, info about new and enhanced games for the PlayStation Move motion controller,..
With UFC Undisputed 2010 already on store-shelves, and EA Sports MMA due later this year, you'd be forgiven for thinking that tthe most MMA franchises the world needs is two
But, nuh-uh, 505 Games wants to jump on board too - announcing that they are bringing their totally unlicensed Supremacy MMA to E3. The game's said to take injuries in a more extreme direction, right up to neck breaks..
This is Weird (with a capital "w")
Sony's just announced that they're teaming up with Subway to give free sandwiches away to all those in the LA area who try out PlayStation Move next week. On Tuesday, June 15th, from 6-9PM, Sony will be giving out $5 Subway giftcards to all those who check out the PlayStation Move at three different Best Buy locations. You can check out the full details through..
This banner wrapped around the upper-tier of the LA Convention Centre (where E3 is due to take place next week), bears a striking resemblance to the font and colouring used in Sony's "It Only Does Everything" campaign
But what could possibly change everything?</em> Update @ 22:12GMT - so it's the PlayStation Move slogan, then. [Cheers Geoff Keighley]
We've been talking about The Agency for a long time now, but this latest trailer finally shows the game in a polished state
Just basing it against other trailers SOE have revealed for the game, this E3 trailer looks slightly redesigned and hella spunky. We daresay it will make a big presence at E3 — whether that presence will come under the PlayStation 3 banner (which the game is planned for),..
Last year I had an email
Someone asked me, "if you had a job at SCEA, and you were in the planning room for Sony's E3 2010 press conference, how would you glue the event together?" In response, I wrote a pretty detailed opinionator breaking down the way in which I'd construct Sony's press conference, based on predictions already made. This...
