Regular readers will know about our obsession with tennis games
Naturally we're going somewhat gaga over the announcement of Virtua Tennis 4 for the PlayStation Vita. Let's not forget how good Virtua Tennis: World Tour was when it launched alongside the original PlayStation Portable. To this day it's one of the best games available for the platform. Virtua Tennis 4 for PlayStation Vita will be the..
A PlayStation platform has never launched without a Ridge Racer title
It's a trend we hoped would continue with the PlayStation Vita, but Namco representatives shattered our dreams earlier in the year stating that there were "no plans" for a title on Sony's new system. That's changed this morning. Presumably prompted after watching this video, Namco Bandai has confirmed that a new Ridge..
Better late than never
We were all expecting LittleBigPlanet 2's PlayStation Move support to have arrived by now, but last night Sony took to the stage to announce the much-anticipated update will land in September. While the company revealed little of what the update will include, it did state the controller will be used to create and play levels...
"Set phasers to fun!"
Atrocious puns aside, the news that Paramount Digital's upcoming Star Trek title will support PlayStation Move is good news for anyone who's ever pretended the controller is a Tricorder, Phaser or Daqtagh. The PS3 game follows on from J. J. Abrams' recent reboot of the franchise, seeing younger versions of Kirk, Spock and the...
All about EVE
Last night's E3 extravaganza was full of Move news, but one game that immediately stands out is Dust 514, a new shooter that links to the world of PC MMO EVE Online. The Move-enabled shooter connects to the persistent universe of EVE Online, with the actions of PS3 players affecting the game's notoriously expansive economy, political...
It's not the Sports Champions sequel we were expecting, but Zindagi's new game looks to be an entertaining outing in its own right. Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest has been dubbed an "action adventure shooter", covering most bases in one deft stroke, but from the press release it sounds like a cross between Medievil and the...
Ready to Rapture?
Ken Levine is the mastermind behind the world heralded by gamers across the world known simply as ‘Rapture’ in the BioShock series. Stepping into the dark undersea city of Rapture for the first time was truly a moment that we’ll never forget; inhabitant’s that utilise strange powers, Big Daddies and Little Sisters,...
Along with Cole MacGrath
Capcom's upcoming franchise-melding brawler, Street Fighter X Tekken is about to get one more franchise thrown into the mix.

Shortly after a jaw-dropping live Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception gameplay trailer, Naughty Dog released a pretty spectacular trailer that showcases a number of set-pieces from the game

Who said 3D technology is too expensive: Sony announced a brand new PlayStation branded 3D television this evening for $499
But that's not all you get for your money: the 24-inch 3D monitor includes a pair of 3D glasses, an HDMI cable and a copy of Resistance 3. That's some deal. What's more, the television includes some fancy technology that allows split-screen multiplayer games to be played..
Not content with announcing Street Fighter X Tekken for the PlayStation Vita, Capcom also confirmed that inFamous protagonist Cole McGrath will feature as a playable character in the PlayStation SKUs of the game
In the demonstration Cole looked like he'd spent a few months in the gym, with biceps bulging out of his trade-mark t-shirt. An unexpected but neat announcement, though.
One of the PlayStation Vita games demonstrated during Sony's press conference was Ruin, a social action-RPG with a Diablo-esque loot core
A PlayStation 3 version of the game is also planned, with cross-platform connectivity touted.
Confident in its E3 showing, Sony has released a list of third-party developers and publishers currently working on PlayStation Vita titles as of June 7th
While the North American list looks slim in comparison to the mammoth Japanese support, it's probably worth noting that all the big names (Bethesda aside) are included. Which is basically what you want for a new platform. Check out the list after..
We don't know anything about US mobile networks, but the groans that reverberated during Sony's E3 press conference tell us the AT&T announcement wasn't a good one
Sony named the firm as the "official" wireless carrier for the 3G SKU of the PlayStation Vita. That model will retail for $299.
There's a touch of irony to PlayStation Vita getting cross-game chat ahead of PlayStation 3, but that's exactly what Sony announced this evening
The long anticipated PlayStation 3 feature will take the guise of an application called "Party", allowing users to communicate using headsets or the Vita's built-in microphone. Players will be able to chat regardless of what games they are..

The will-it-won't-it of Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time has officially been put to bed

Zindagi Games is not developing the PlayStation Move enabled tennis game we dreamed of, it is instead working on what looks to be an updated iteration of Sorcery
Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest is an action game taking full advantage of Sony's motion controller in a whimsical world. Alas, it has nothing to with Sony Cambridge's Medieval franchise. The Move controls appeared to work well in the..
Sony didn't end its E3 2011 press conference with a game announcement or shocking demonstration, it instead settled with laying ghosts to the past
The words "five-hundred-and-ninety-nine US dollars" must still ring in the ears of SCE president Kaz Hirai, but this year he had a different price to announce: "two-hundred-and-forty-nine US dollars". That's the price of the entry..

Ready to conquer the living room
Ubisoft just hit with the first big PlayStation Move game of E3 — Just Dance 3 is on the way to Sony's motion controller on 11th October. The game is also coming to Kinect and Wii, but while the press release mentions exclusive features for those consoles it doesn't specify anything for PlayStation Move. Hopefully...

The star of Microsoft's E3 press conference just so happened to be a multiplatform game
Earlier this evening Crystal Dynamics took to the stage to reveal the first gameplay footage of its upcoming Tomb Raider reboot.

There's the charm of Ratchet & Clank mixed in with the grit of Resistance in Insomniac's first EA Games published project
Entitled Overstrike, the c0-op based title looks like a tongue-in-cheek take on the shooter genre — with chunky, cartoony characters teaming up in a colourful world. The game's reveal — shown moments ago at EA's E3 press conference — didn't include any gameplay, but..
Ouch: take that Activision
After taking a moment to gloat over Call Of Duty: Elite, EA has slapped an October 25th release date on Battlefield 3.

Accompanied by a stunning gameplay demo, EA also revealed that Battlefield 3 will get a multi-platform beta in September. Those that purchased copies of Medal Of..
There's going to be big boss fights, turret sequences and heavy guitar riffs in Shepard's struggle for mankind -- this Mass Effect 3 trailer proves as much

We could do without a stage demonstration of another dancing game at Sony's E3 press conference, but sources are indicating we might get one anyway
According to video game super-sleuth Supererogatory, new development upstarts Magic Pixel are working on a new dancing game for Sony. Remember when the platform holder registered all those Everybody Dance domains last month? According to its website,..
Before you take a cartwheel into the road outside your house, let's make one point absolutely clear: Sony Santa Monica works as a micro-publisher within SCEA
It supports smaller developers getting to grips with the PlayStation hardware, and has an input in second-party development. In short: while Sony Santa Monica might have eight games at E3, not all of them will be developed by the God Of War..
If there's anything to dread at Sony's press conference this evening, it's going to be the NGP's price point
There's a definite sense that the company can't win no matter how they tackle the pricing situation. If Sony don't announce a price then people will assume the new handheld really expensive. But if the company announce a price now and don't release the device until later in the year, then..
SCEE's registered two new trademarks for PSVita and PlayStation Vita in Europe, adding weight to the rumours suggesting the former codename will be the NGP's final name
The trademarks were spotted on GAF, and were registered on Friday to the Trademarks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union. There's really no point debating it anymore: Vita is almost certainly going to be NGP's final..
Twiggy guessed it in his pre-E3 predictions, but a report on Forbes has now added weight behind the expectation of a new God Of War appearing at Sony's press conference this evening
The report claims that it will be a "new 3D adventure," presumably hinting at stereoscopic support. God Of War III released last March on PlayStation 3. While we'd be stoked over a new God Of War featuring..
It still doesn't feel like E3 is happening
Not properly. Tomorrow (June 6th) is arguably the biggest day in the PlayStation calendar, with Sony and others preparing to showcase their entire video game lineup for the coming year. Expects twists, turns, surprises and betrayals; it just wouldn't be E3 without them. EA's set to get the party started at...

Capcom's released a new trailer for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
The E3 trailer is an entirely CG affair, depicting Umbrella troops tracking a lone soldier into an abandoned warehouse. Naturally that warehouse is packed full of the undead. We like the vibe of the trailer, but we're not sure how well it's going to transition into gameplay. We love the Resident Evil universe though, so..
Take this with a pinch of salt
A post on NeoGAF appears to show the release listings from an Australian retailer, revealing a handful of unannounced games for the rest of the year and beyond.

There's an interview hidden in this pre-E3 GameTrailers reveal of thatgamecompany's Journey
We're struggling to focus on Jenova Chen's words though, because the gameplay footage that's been wrapped around it is just straight-up stunning. Persevere and you'll pick up on Chen talking about the Journey's concept and multiplayer functions. While the...
Maybe it's because we're complete and utter car-combat fanboys, but this Twisted Metal trailer has us sitting at our desk grinning like a Cheshire Cat
It starts off decent enough, with the terrible over-produced FMV we've come to love from the Twisted Metal franchise. Then it gets better with the introduction of Sweet Bot. But that ending, man. That ending. We're going to recommend you sit and..
