ICO and Shadow Of The Colossus are two of the best games ever released on a PlayStation platform
The critical darlings both spawned a fervent fanbase on the PlayStation 2, and recently got upgraded for the PS3. Now the two arthouse adventures are preparing for even greater exposure, with the Official PlayStation Blogcast confirming both titles for a...
The PlayStation 3 may already play host to Crysis 2, but EA and Crytek has announced this week that that the original Crysis game will retroactively accompany it
The game is said to be 'remastered' on PS3, with new lighting effects and Nanosuit abilities. At the time of writing, no price has been announced.
A. Noire</a> has held onto the UK sales charts top spot for a second week running, beating off Codemasters' semi-sim DiRT 3 which finished up in a respectable second. LEGO Pirates Of the Caribbean, Zumba Fitness and Brink all held onto their high positions to round out the top five, with familiar faces such as Crysis 2 and Call Of Duty:...
As with every other big-budget first-person shooter, Crysis 2 will be getting its first slice of DLC this month
Crytek's gorgeous alien-invasion blockbuster will get a pack called "Retaliation" on May 17th. Obviously, any PlayStation DLC dates have a big question-mark looming over them while the PSN stays offline. The pack will include four new multiplayer maps, including: Park Avenue,..
With the NPD ceasing to provide hardware numbers, this month's report is restricted to software we're afraid
And it's a pretty uneventful month for PlayStation to be honest, with the interest surrounding the Nintendo 3DS. Interestingly, it was a Nintendo DS game that topped the charts for March, with Pokemon White taking the top-spot and Pokemon Black following it up in second. Homefront finished..
Zumba Fitness has toppled Crysis 2 to sit atop the British sales charts
We don't have a clue what Zumba Fitness is, but we do know a PS3 version is due within the next couple of weeks. We assume the game's going to be lingering around the sales charts for some time. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 saw a push up to fourth on the back of the Masters tournament, while Dynasty Warriors 7 scraped a place in the..
We imagine there are plenty of chuffed faces around EA UK this morning -- no less than four of the publisher's games occupy the top ten this week
Crysis 2 is still at the number one spot, with new release Shift 2: Unleashed a few spots behind in fourth. Elsewhere for EA, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 took the sixth spot, while FIFA 11 continues to do gangbusters in eighth. Presumably the biggest story..
Crytek's semi-sandbox shooter, Crysis 2, has jumped to the top of the UK sales charts, scooping the accolade away from last week's winner, Homefront
LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars finished up second, while the afore-mentioned Homefront settled for third. Last week saw the release of the Nintendo 3Ds, and naturally there was an abundance of titles for the new handheld in the top ten. No Ridge..
"Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today. I want to be a part of it - New York, New York," are the lyrics that would be present in this Crysis 2 launch trailer if Crytek hadn't gone for some dodgy street remix majig. Don't get us wrong, we like some urban beats. Not keen on this tune though. But that doesn't matter because it's Crysis 2! Hide behind your desks folks. Stay in your house. The..
Amidst a huge backlash from the gaming community, EA has pulled the PlayStation 3 version of the Crysis 2 demo from the PlayStation Store
The publisher's told gamers that it wants to resolve reported issues so that players can enjoy a "flawless" launch. "Though many gamers have had a great experience playing the demo, we are aware that others have been experiencing server connection..
EA's confirmed that legendary composer Hans Zimmer has contributed to Crysis 2's soundtrack
It'll be the second shooter Zimmer has scored, after he previously worked on Modern Warfare 2. Zimmer said he was drawn to the project because of Crytek's "passion", and eventually teamed up with current composers Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu to create the score. I was drawn to Crysis 2..
The net's been alight with criticism aimed at Crytek over the PlayStation 3 version of Crysis 2
While nobody seems to be all that satisfied with the XBOX 360 version, apparently the PlayStation 3 version is worse. But Crytek's Nathan Camarillo insisted that is not the case on the PlayStation Blog. "I've gone on the record saying that if you stick PS3 and 360 side by side I would challenge..

Crytek's finally broken the silence on the PlayStation 3 version of Crysis 2, releasing a new gameplay trailer running on Sony's platform
Technically the footage looks fine, but we're still a little concerned by how bland the action looks. Bad editing? We hope so. The trailer confirms that PlayStation 3 owners will get access to a multiplayer demo at some point in the future. The demo's already..
Considering Crysis 2 is a multiplatform game, Crytek's been mighty silent about the shooter on PlayStation 3
While both PC and XBOX 360 gamers have had access to a demo of the sci-fi shooter for a while, PlayStation 3 hasn't gotten so much as a sniff. But executive producer, Nathan Camarillo, told PSU that we "can probably hope for a demo". Would certainly be a good way of getting people..
Fans of special editions will be pleased with the news coming out of Crytek this morning -- Crysis 2's set to get two special editions upon its release next year
The Nano Edition, which will retail for £119.99 / $149.99 will include an 11" statue, a high quality art-book and a specially modelled backpack to house the goods. Obviously, you'll also get a copy of the game housed in a steel case..
After details regarding Crysis 2's delay emerged last week, Crytek's been tellingly hush about giving the first-person shooter an alternative launch window
Until now, at least. The studio's just confirmed on Twitter that Crysis 2 will launch in March 2011. More specifically, the game will hit the US on March 22nd and the UK on March 25th.
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,..
There are guns and fancy visual effects, therefore it must be Crysis 2, right? Here's your first look at Crytek's long-hyped first-person shooter which is looking
.. alright. Perhaps this is a bad selection of footage, but it all looks like rather average run-of-the-mill console shooter stuff to us, with the exception of a few standout moments (like where that building collapses, that's..
When was the last time you saw a game get moved forward? Yeah, long time ago right
Games only ever get delayed, they never get pushed forward. Well, except for Crysis 2 that is. EA's just announced that they're moving the game forward into the Autumn, as opposed to the previously announced end-of-year date. Woohoo. The news comes via a trade press advert in the latest issue of MCV. Word. If the..
Geoff Keighley's doing it again - he's pulling the big exclusive reveals
And this week he's got THQ's anticipated Red Faction sequel to reveal. The show airs in the US tomorrow night, so expect the trailer sometime on Saturday. Interestingly, the next GTTV will also have debut gameplay footage of Crysis 2 and FEAR 3, aswell as some more from Platinum's Vanquish. Killer episode then, Keighley?
Crytek's been hyping Crysis 2 for a while now
They claim that they're going to set the graphical benchmark of all three consoles the game's due to release on. From the Playstation 3's perspective - it's some challenge to take on Sony's own in-house studios. But man - these screens do look pretty. We're assuming they're running on a super-powerful PC rig, but if Crytek can get the visuals anywhere..
Join us as we round up the rest of todays Playstation stories in just sixty-seconds
</em> Simon Prytherch of Lightning Fish Games reckons that the introduction of the Playstation Move will benefit the market for "fitness gamers", and that platform holder's emphasis on motion controls will "see new ways of interacting and new genres emerging as creative minds get to grips with..
Hats-off to Crytek
Rather than going for platform-parity (and essentially gimping everyone), they are trying to squeeze every inch of performance out of each of the three platforms their upcoming shooter Crysis 2 is to be released on. And that means the company has admitted that they are getting "slightly more performance" out of the Playstation 3 version of the game. "We haven't..
There's a lot going into Crysis 2
Not only will the game be the showpiece for Crytek's new multiplatform engine, the CryEngine 3, but it's also got an entire team - the respected Crytek UK, formerly Free Radical (TimeSplitters, Haze) - working on its multiplayer. This goes against initial claims which suggested that Crytek UK were working on a new "original FPS" aswell as Crysis 2. Not..
The original Crysis is largely considered the best looking PC video game of all time
Those with a high-powered rig are able to squeeze unbelievable visuals out of the game. In fact - whisper it - if it weren't for Crysis' amazing visuals, no one would much care for the shooter. So in making the move to consoles with Crysis 2, developers Crytek want to ensure they leave the likes of Uncharted 2:..
Here's a new way of making your debut - put it on the big-screen at New York's Times Square
That's exactly what Crytek's done with their upcoming shooter Crysis 2. The footage doesn't really reveal much: people are missing, aliens have invaded, New York's ruined, there are people in big suits. Still. What did you expect? Gameplay? Pssht.
Naughty Dog set the benchmark with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Sony Santa Monica raised the benchmark with God Of War III. Now Crytek want to take the console visuals crown with Crysis 2. Were aiming to set the graphical benchmark, executive producer Nathan Camarillo told British Playstation magazine, PSM3. Why would anyone not want to play a game with the best graphics they have ever..
Finally - we might be staring at the end of the Unreal Engine
Let it be known - here at PushSquare we hate the Unreal Engine. It's such a bummer when a new game drops in the office and that familiar "U" pops-up the moment we push the disc into our system. The problem is: all Unreal Engine games look the same. Shiny, fuzzy, no personality whatsoever. We dare say the natural progression to..
EA dropped some big names at their financial call last night, detailing the planned release windows for a host of killer franchises over the next 12 months or so
Amongst the big Summer titles, EA's announced that their big, futuristic reboot Medal Of Honor is due between July and September 2010. That means you can expect a huge push at this year's E3. Medal Of Honor will be followed by another huge..
Were you ever curious how CryTek's new CryEngine 3 (running on Playstation 3) stacks up against the previous PC version, CryEngine 2? No, us neither, but those PC elitists - they just gotta remind us that their £1,500,000,000
01 rig is better than our lovely little Playstations. If you watch the embedded video you'll be able to read all the technical jargon and assumptions on how much better the..
.. If you can call this a Crysis 2 trailer at all. It just looked like shards of floating glass on a black background to us. But hey, different strokes for different folks - no doubt the Crysis fanboys are already screaming "game of the year".
Only Killzone 2's graphics are talked about as much as those in Crysis
Simply put, on a high-end PC, Crysis is technically the best looking game ever built. And now it's coming to the Playstation 3, via the creatively titled Crysis 2. Nothing else is known about the game, aside from the fact it will be built with the new CryENGINE3. Fact: this will be at E3.
