[UPDATE] Burnout Paradise gets an update

I'll admit - I'm hooked on Burnout Paradise. It really is one of the most enthralling and brilliant games I have ever played. Those of you who know me understand just how many years of gaming that takes in!

But all can't be perfect in Paradise since a new patch is available for download when you launch the game.

Whilst we're not entirely sure what v1.1 does as of yet, I can tell you that after many hours playing the game yesterday I did notice an unusual amount of online game disconnections.

We'll do our best to find out what specifically this patch does and we'll be testing (playing) the new version extensively to see if we can spot the difference. Look out for an update (v1.1 if you will) to this story soon.

[UPDATE] There is no doubt about it. The game servers and online experience are much more solid than yesterday. Criterion have confirmed to us that the fixes they have put in place are to improve the online gaming experience when any of the connected players have (what they call) a strict firewall setup. In other words, check your firewall settings on your router and ensure that it is set up correctly for the game - check the manual in the box for UDP port details.

GT5 Prologue European release date confirmed

We knew that GT5 Prologue would be coming some time in Q1 this year, but we didn't think it would arrive almost exactly as Q2 comes around.

Yes, the official date for GT5 Prologue is 28th March. As you'd expect, we've updated the PS3 Attitude PlayStation 3 Events Calendar with the good news.

We're big fans of the Gran Turismo series here at PS3 Attitude, so the end of March can't come soon enough!

MGS4 demo definitely on the way in February

As is usual at PS3 Attitude, we resisted the temptation to report this when it was still firmly resident in the 'rumour cup'.

We now know for sure that a small piece of Metal Gear Solid 4 will be coming to a PlayStation Store near you next month.

The demo that everyone has been waiting for is set to arrive in February and will be the same code that PCW magazine played to create their recent article.

So with yet another shoddy reference to our 2008 opening story, the Year of the Rat may start in February, but it looks like it is going to be the Month of the Snake.

Keep checking the PS3 Attitude PlayStation 3 Events Calendar, which will show the actual date of release as soon as it is made available.

European releases for week beginning 21st January


Instead of listing the releases like we used to, from now on you can simply visit the PS3 Attitude PlayStation 3 Events Calendar to get the latest on what is coming along and when.

Some weeks though something will come along that is so important we need to actually raise your attention to it. And this is one of those weeks.

Burnout Paradise is here people!

Mine is already in the post ready to arrive on Friday morning, and I frankly can't wait. As detailed in our 'Year of the Rat' story, Burnout Paradise is the first important title of 2008.

With addictive gameplay and a whole concoction of special races, stages and features not even hinted at in the much-lauded demo, this promises to be a title that will keep you happy throughout the year.

You can do what I did and pre-order Burnout Paradise for delivery on Friday by clicking the link.
